Fifty Shades of Grey – US TEASER IMAGE

Endless Love – Review

In a world where every second female seems to have access to an excellent beauty parlor adept at metamorphosing any ‘material’ into the most fascinating, just having a pretty good looking cast alone is not sufficient, until the cast gets totally immersed in the character-acting. Endless Love does just that, it throws in two really … Continue reading

Need For Speed – Movie Review

With all the thrills and vehicle mayhem lent to the film with a liberal hand, Need for Speed presents less thrilling and more callous mauling of cars and innocent humans that jerks the viewer from one situation to the other as though pressing a button on a video game scene. Umm, hang on, that makes … Continue reading

Noah – Movie review

A work of art that subsists on departure from details embodied in Scriptures, NOAH offers Darren Aronofsky’s personal take on the ascetic Noah, the Ark Noah builds, the great Deluge and the After. Being a 21st century production, Noah has secularism-induced-novelties-dipped-in-environmental-concerns. The film lacerates the Scripture’s one of the most-often-read tales and imparts it imagined modern … Continue reading

LEGO MOVIE – REVIEW

Oye! Oye!! An ‘everything is awesome’ spectacle, a 3D animation story about toys, with “cuties” and lots of creativity-fun laden building blocks most of us handled as kids to craft our own world of childhood fancies. Lego Movie is superb with its multi-colored houses, lofty cranes, and fast cars. At once funny and witty, engrossing … Continue reading

Here’s calling all Filthy, oops sorry, Fifty Shades of Grey fans. Check out the latest, courtesy Universal Pictures (Australia)  

American Hustle – Review

A sizzling collage of curves and cleavage, of comb-overs and conmen, American Hustle is an enchanting “dramedy”, full of pep and ginger, laden with swindles, crimes and romance. Conman Irving [Bale] apparently runs a dry cleaning chain but under-the-surface is a skilled dealer in forged art work and masterminds swindling the unsuspecting-and-needy people by extracting … Continue reading

Nymphomaniac 1 & 2 – Review

A controversial and nauseatingly comic tale of love, lust, nipples, and penis, Nymphomaniac is disgustingly long even while it essays to wrap the eroticism into gossamer thin veil of philosophic digressions like fly-fishing, Bach, James Bond, Orthodox morality and the like. Von Trier tries to vindicate Joe’s obsession with abnormally heightened sexual desires and to … Continue reading

Le Week-End – Review

A sentimental journey across the English Channel to re-discover love and happiness buried deep in the labyrinths of time and mismatch tempers Le Week-End is a toast not only to the regrets and rewards of the thing called matrimony, but also to that ever elusive romantic bubble that gets sadly crushed by heartless and cruel … Continue reading

A Pact – Review

A suspense flick that hints at road-rolling over the delicate wires of relationships, A Pact is an unnerving 85 minutes of reel time set in erstwhile East Germany of the early 1080s. The story revolves round three teenagers, Paul [Felix Kruttke] who is in love with the beautiful Anna [Singer Irslinger] and Anna’s boy friend … Continue reading

The Girl with Nine Wigs – Review

A touching tale of guts, determination and youthful courage to scorn a life-limiting disease and lead life—however ephemeral—to realize dreams once dreamt, hopes and aspirations once cherished. The Girl with Nine Wigs is an emotionally charged ‘dramedy’ that takes the viewer one minute to the dizzying heights of happy emotions and next minute sliding down … Continue reading

GOLD – Review – Audi Festival of German Films

A simple tale of Klondike gold rush, set in an exotic location, Gold revolves round a bunch of German immigrants hell-bent to dissipate the misery of life by finding that bright yellow metal which has been both the bane and boon of similar perilous searches. This story of gold rush is replete with repetitive themes barring … Continue reading

300: Rise of an Empire – Review

Digressions into semantics of ‘sequel’ or prequel’ apart “300: Rise Of An Empire”, a stylized action film can well be termed as a ‘porn-quel’ with its penchant for crazy sex, welcoming intercourse while busy in combat, showcasing breasts that bulge out, and merrily shoving sharpened blades in guts. A blood-soaked, gory-and-brutal in its handling of … Continue reading

Ride Along – Review

An action comedy that juxtaposes an unfriendly slow-in-speech man [Ice Cube] with entertainingly funny but rapid-and-fast-speech person [Kevin Hart], Ride Along is a joy ride through and through. Don’t let the fact that Kevin Hart is a short statured fellow—yes, we met him at the red carpet premiere in Sydney on March 6th—get in your … Continue reading

All Is Lost – Review

A toast to resourcefulness, to remaining unruffled in a sea of storm, All Is Lost stands out as a superbly intriguing adventure drama. And it is also a spectacular tribute to Robert Redford’s powerful screen presence. With his scarce monologues, harking back to soliloquies in Hamlet-fashion, tough but terse, he pulls off this refreshingly novel … Continue reading

Fast & Furious 7 – Preview

So folks, here’s the latest: Fast & Furious 7 is back on track [after Paul Walker’s sad and unfortunate demise], and here’s the official low-down on the movie, courtesy Universal Pictures (Australia). Fast & Furious 7 not only stars its recurring cast but also some new names of the who’s who of Hollywood. Continuing the … Continue reading

11.6 – Review

An absorbing crime story that show cases a well planned and nicely executed heist, not by the usual anti social elements but by the very forces that stand surety and security, 11.6 is worth 102 minutes of captivating reel time. And by Golly if you are too naïve to have ever visited a casino or … Continue reading

Under The Rainbow – Review

Adroitly scripted and brilliantly acted, the erstwhile real life couple Jaoui-Pierre film Under The Rainbow has Gallicism at its comic best. Replete not only with witty humor but also with love, life, romance, digression galore and edgy one-liners, the movie strives to appeal across the many age divides. 110 minutes of reel time notwithstanding, Under The … Continue reading

Michael Kohlhaas – Review

Want to up rise from your allotted seats and file outta theatre? Then go ahead and watch Michael Kohlhaas, a sickening adaptation of a glorious historic drama. For after a while in front of the screen, you may end up leading an impromptu uprising the minute Denis Lavant makes his disappearance act. For then Mads … Continue reading

Wresting Queen Review – French Film Festival

An ode to the sport of wrestling, Wrestling Queen is all the way an engrossing laugh riot brimming over with that emotional connect which endears it to one and all. Eager to forge ties with Michael, the 11 year old child she conceived as a teenager and put in foster care, 30 year old mother … Continue reading

Last Vegas – Review

When Oscar winning actors, much past their prime, come together to pose as old buddies out for a last hurrah in the City of Sin before Life’s curtain call, you expect the result to either be a smashing success or a deplorable attempt. For a comedy, it could either be a surge in belly laughs … Continue reading
