    Big Trouble in Little China

    ★★★½

    Ahhh man these 80s action comedies were seriously fun. Big Trouble In Little China was hilarious and beaming with full-on martial arts B-movie actions sequences.

    Kurt Russell shines as the titular reluctant and incapable hero mixed in with wizards and sorcery.

    The visual effects were really bad considering The Thing's amazing visual effects. Both were made by John Carpenter so that was a bit disappointing.

    The third act too was a bit of a slog but otherwise, a good film.

    So, 3.5/5

    Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance

    ★★★★½

    Misunderstandings and unfortunate events is the driving force of this film. Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance was an uncomfortable and unnerving watch mainly because of how the story unfolds in such a twisted and brutal fashion.

    Both of the main leads are well meaning people but fate has something else for them in store and so, starts the cycle of violence and blood.

    Life sometimes is a bitch and has a dark sense of humor that doesn't pan out well for these comically tragedic characters.

    The film's ultimate message is crystal clear revenge is futile. There is nothing to gain from revenge at all.

    So, 4.5/5

    The action sequences especially the bus scene was visceral and thriiling to watch coupled with the fact that…

    ★★★★

    Minari is a bittersweet film, it oozes this nostalgic feeling of one's childhood, it's a hilarious film too but mainly it's a tale of a family trying to adjust in a new environment and tackle the struggles they face.

    All of the family members have a lot of heart and depth into them which goes to show the effort the writer put to write such well-written characters which further helped the actors and director to flesh out these characters.
