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

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

We Are What We Are – Mexican Horror Movie Review

When I found out Bentley had went on a movie outing, I gave the Human an ultimatum: bring me to a movie or I will empty out my bowels on his bed till kingdom come. He conceded. But let this be clear, I was not going to follow up with my threat. Bentley creates enough … Continue reading

The Amazing Spider Man 2 – DVD Review

A visual and emotive delight for youths across the gender divides as well as for young children entering schools, Mark Webb’s Super-hero blockbuster The Amazing Spider Man 2 storms the cinematic world with aplomb loaded with 3 D action sequels, wholesome fun and riveting performance by the lead characters. The Amazing Spider Man 2 is the story of Peter Parker, … 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

Gentlemen Prefer Blondes – Review

Trust me; it is not just gentlemen who prefer blondes. Even we [the canines, that is] prefer those light haired beauties, of-course in our case, the more hair the better! A tale of two friends desiring diametrically opposite qualities in prospective spouses, Gentlemen prefer Blondes is a captivatingly sensitive portrayal, highlighting the why and the … 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

The King’s Speech – DVD Review

Okay, so there are times and movie where poking fun or mocking are inappropriate. Even for us mongrels. We will thus aptly, cut the bull-shit, and go straight to reviewing The King’s Speech. A moving portrayal of the innermost fears of a sovereign when a speech impairment looms large to impede his address to a … Continue reading

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

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
