First Love was my first Takashi Miike film and I loved it very much.
The film mixes violence, comedy and subtle romance to deliver an entertaining roller-coaster ride from start to finish. Although it does take some time for the plot to take off which can be sometimes a bit boring.
Miike's direction and the characters were the best thing. Boxers, prostitutes, femme fatales and yakuza members all collide in a violent and sometimes hilarious way.
The performances of the…
This crime comedy was a riot from start to finish. Hilariously entertaining and yet so engaging in its story.
The sheer comic timing from the actors are brilliant and the lead actor delivers one heck of a performance
The writing too was so incredible. Well written funny characters
The director was the only hindrance, not knowing when to stop a scene and messy editing removes half star from this movie
Also the need for dance sequences was unnecessary
David Fincher's film Mank based on the writer of the famous film, Citizen Kane is a quite commendable effort by him.
The technical aspects of the film is fantastic. From the production design which makes it look like a movie from the 30s-40s, to the era authentic musical score courtesy of the composers, great sound design, outstanding cinematography and the lavish costumes.
Gary Oldman gives a wonderful performance along with supporting hands such as Amanda Seyfried and others
The Dark Knight returns in 6 different stories and I will be going through each of them
Replicating the story telling of Rashomon, this chapter shows three accounts of encounters with Batman by three kids. I admired the unique approach but the story falls flat added with bad animation.
Another unique story by focusing on two detectives who are taking a criminal to the penetionery with Batman as a supporting character. This chapter had great animation,…
One of the most realistic crime stories I have ever seen. From start to finish, this film was tense and gripping.
Akira Kurosawa's direction was amazing. From creative wide camera shot choices that captures the distance of the characters in the first half and a more edge of your seat, almost action focused second half, High and Low might be Kurosawa's best film in my opinion
All of the characters are nailed by their respective actors. Tatsuya Nakadai was the…
Wonder Woman 1984 was great. Gal Gadot, charming as ever, delivers another beautiful Wonder Woman iteration. She is the heart and soul of this franchise.
Anyways, Wonder Woman improves a lot of things from the first one. First of all, the third act of the film was amazing. Amazing set design, costumes and sound design really help capture the feel and vibe of the 80s.
Gal Gadot, Chris Pine and Pedro Pascal all gave us brilliant performances. Kristen Wigg's character…
My Indian friend strikes again with another great reccomendation.
If Reservoir Dogs was the aftermath of a failed bank robbery this is the before, during and after of a failed robbery. Boasting an outstanding cast, each of the actors deliver great and simply iconic peroformances.
Catchy musical score and a great screenplay with just fantastic dialogues boosts the film to greatness
But man with all that postive things aside, the movie has some very weak aspects. Horrendous editing and Unnecessary…
Sound Of Metal was a fantastic film.
Riz Ahmed delivers one of the best performances of the year. His raw and emotional and simply passionate performance of a drummer who slowly begins to lose his hearing was just such a treat to watch. Also one of the years best debut actor, Paul Raci, shows his brillaince and acting skills
A gripping story that executes its story in such an uncoventional way. The film is a poignant take on the deaf…
