Focus: Dazzling, glamourous and charming.

I don’t care what others might say about the movie, but Focus was certainly enjoyable fun. Will Smith and Margot Robbie were full of charm and suave, which helped to save this movie from being just another one of those high stakes ‘heists’ film. In all honesty, don’t expect Focus to contend for something like…

Enemy: A psychological blast.

Enemy is a film directed by Denis Villeneuve which is loosely adapted from the novel The Double by Jose Saramago. I’ve been wanting to watch this for ages, and now that I finally have, there’s only one thing that’s clear; Its good. Alright folks from here on out, take my analysis with a pinch of…

Insurgent: It didn’t quite cut it.

It’s sad to see that many people’s first impression of Shailene Woodley and Miles Teller are for their roles in the Divergent series.

Wild: An introspective journey, Reese Witherspoon is at her finest.

Ever felt the need to walk 1000 miles to find yourself? Maybe not. But Wild is a highly cathartic experience, filled with the ruggedness of human will and a look into the mendings of a broken soul. I’ve not seen much of Reese Witherspoon but in this one, she delivers a knock-out performance. Wowza. It’s…

Selma: Gritty Glory.Ava DuVernay and David Oyelowo produce an epic.

After watching Selma, you’ll wonder why Ava DuVernay was not nominated for Best Director and why David Ojewolo missed out on a Best Actor nomination. There’s quite abit of controversy surrounding this. Whether it’s because there’s a lack of diversity in the academy (94% White, 64% Men, average age of 63) or because Ava and…
