At a press conference held at Docklands in Melbourne on March 18th, Arnold confirmed his … Continue reading

IFFM 2015 – NH10 Review

A nerve shattering reality expose of the socio-political chasm that underlies a society that appears both progressive and regressive at the same time, a society where rules, regulations, laws and the ideals enshrined in its Constitution are as deeply entrenched in the soil as the many hide bound conventions, blind obeisance to mindless customs and … Continue reading

Aussie Rules the World

See the trouble with a story on celluloid about sports is that unless everyone globally loves that sport, the project’s success becomes limited. Ironically, Aussie Rules the World is a movie that is made to change the world’s opinion and awareness about Australian Football League (AFL). As a result, this movie/documentary by writer/director Michael Stringer … Continue reading

Escape Plan – DVD Review

Expert at prison break, Ray Breslin [Sylvester Stallone] gets deceived and confined to a maximum security prison situated at a mind-bogglingly unknown location. Trapped and beaten, Ray soon teams up with Emil Rottmayer [Arnold Schwarzenegger] and chalks out a daring escape. Having laughed all through most of the movie, I feel watching Escape Plan is … Continue reading

World War Z – Review with exclusive pics from the Australian Premiere

Before we begin talking about the movie World War Z, I have a grief to address. We vultures have been given a bad name, by you humans. It is as if we purposely hunt and crave for the human flesh, dead or alive. You humans don’t understand that we have been built this way by … Continue reading

Pretty Woman – review

Simply put, ‘Pretty Woman‘ is an endearing tale of a garishly dressed prostitute acquiring dress and mannerism of sophisticated high class woman. From a mere money-grabbing-in-lieu-of-sleazy-sex the professional prostitute comes to be a woman replete with dignity and learns the new meaning of love and sex. She also succeeds in transforming a ruthlessly calculating business … Continue reading

Kill Your Darlings – DVD Review

An engrossing take on the writers of the Beat Generation during their formative years, Kill Your Darlings is a unique blend of love-cum-murder story that evolves around the piercing-blue-eyed and sexually-enhanced Lucien Carr [Dane DeHann]—his lover-professor-stalker David Krammerer [Michael C Hall], who gets killed by Carr in the very opening—and Carr’s erotic fascination William Burroughs … Continue reading

LUCY – Movie Review

Alternating between a pulsating and curiously eye-popping psycho thriller, ‘Lucy’ imprints on the viewer’s mind as being a fast-paced scientific fantasy. No wonder by the curtain call, the viewer ends up with mixed feelings, not sure to be happy or sad at the man’s capacity to utilize only 10% of the brain! Lucy [Scarlett Johansson] … Continue reading

Monuments Men – DVD Review

When glorious work and an imposing array of not only talented but proven stars are sacrificed at the alter of a dull narrative, films like Monuments Men are born. A frustratingly flat reverence of war time tales, Monuments Men is an action drama that oscillates at will between comedy and serious didacticism. A Unit of … Continue reading

The Breakfast Club – DVD Review

I wanna be a rebel, I wanna be a rebel, I wanna chew my master’s brand new shoe all day! Well, sorry to break the bubble, but real life ain’t like that folks. It’s mean and it’s harsh; trust me, take it from someone who has had enough kicks to last his lifetime. The faster … Continue reading

Face/Off – DVD Review

Pets or no pets; animals or no animals featured in the movie: For this one, we do not care! It is a bit hard to miss them, when both John Travolta and Nicholas Cage behave like animals in the action epic Face/Off. Face/Off is one of Hollywood’s better action movies, with some amazing stunts, and … Continue reading

Serpico – DVD Review

Hmmm. Police. Cops. Corruption. And real life depicted in reel life. Somehow the best part about the Force that I like is that they sue us dogs to help them out. Makes me kinda feel important you know. But enough about dogs’ role in catching the criminals. Let’s talk about the movie Serpico … An … Continue reading

When Harry Met Sally … DVD Review

Can a boy and a girl be just friends? Well, from what I have learnt, being a part of the animal kingdom that is, our males and females cannot. We pretty much go for anyone, at anytime! But with you humans, it is a bit different. And the movie ‘When Harry Met Sally…’ proves it. … Continue reading
