Chaos ensued as the Titans entered Shinganshina with a mass evacuation.

Movie Review: The Green Mile

Published

on

The Green Mile is one of the greatest movies ever made. Frank Darabont’s masterpiece, the movie pulls a wave of tenacious sentiments along with continued laughters and brings up consciousness of good and evil among the audience. Based on Stephen King’s work, the movie is exceptionally well structured with carefully planned cast, crew and setting. Only a limited number of movies are able to level themselves with their respected books and undoubtedly, The Green Mile stands in the top period. Michael Duncan delivers his career-best performance and Tom Hanks along with David Morse are equally applaudable. The movie is a must watch. Just brilliant.

Movie Review: Finding Nemo

Published

There are a few animated movies that have the power and ability to toss your feelings all over the floor. Emotions so close to life, that reality cascades upon you and you are contrived to spill your feelings all over the social networks and the person sitting next to you. Finding Nemo provokes melancholy inside you and in the following moment, sprinkles upbeat cheerfulness all over it and serves it well directed, well voiced and in ecstatic tunes. Ellen DeGeneres (Dory) is just brilliant. The movie is funny, fulfilling and the ever lasting lesson is to ‘… keep swimming’

Movie Review: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Published

on

The movie is lousy – almost garbage. The movie doesn’t have to offer anything other than cheesy fight scenes, confusing flashes and countless numbers of diddly dialogues that have nothing to do with the storyline or the characters – speaking of which, Batman looks horrible. Not just that Ben Affleck couldn’t pull off the costume. he couldn’t pull off anything applaudable. On the other hand, Henry Cavill and Amy Adams were just satisfying but what really scored this trash movie some money was undoubtedly Jesse Eisenberg’s role as Lux Luthor. With his surprisingly prodigious act, Jesse just pulled out a bright career ahead of this performance for himself. But then again the movie is so long that you just cannot find the patience to appreciate anything and ‘Tell me. Do you bleed?’ I don’t know about Superman but your eyes surely will after watching this movie.
