  • American History X

    American History X

    ★★★★★

    Absolutely devastating portrait of a reformed Neo-Nazi who tries to break down his evil influence that he has passed on to his brother in this modern Greek tragedy of epic proportions.

    So, 5/5

  • Miller's Crossing

    Miller's Crossing

    ★★★★

    What a great movie. The Coens continue to hit it out of the park everytime it seems. An epic tale of a mafia advisor trying to play both sides and coming out the top.

    Some great characters, good acting and a breezy musical score stitches this movie into a great time spent.

    The pacing was a bit janky and surprisingly the humor of The Coens was a bit off here. It felt a bit forced sometimes to laugh at

    So, 4/5

  • Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

    Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard

    ★★★

    A fun film featuring a great comedic performance by Salma Hayek and Ryan Reynolds. SLJ was surprisingly sidelined.

    So, 3/5

  • Doctor Strange

    Doctor Strange

    ★★★★★

    One of the best MCU films to come out and it maybe because Derelict Cucumberpatch was so, so great

  • Pig

    Pig

    ★★★½

    As much as I love Cage Rage on screen, this movie lacked that. It looked like a John Wick-esque action flick but this film subverted expectations.

    Nicolas Cage stars in this film as a truffle hunter looking for his beloved pet. What ensues is a journey of loss and acceptance. It's one of his most raw and vulnerable performances. Along with him stars Alex Wolff who also delivers a great performance too, not being sidelined but being a character of…

  • Out of Sight

    Out of Sight

    ★★★★

    Such a slick and cool romantic crime comedy film. Starring Clooney and Lopez who share absolutely electric chemistry and sexual tension from the get-go.

    The story is really refined with its dialogues and narrative structure. The characters are all their own personas. It's a fun movie to watch.

    Also, it doesn't hurt to see Jennifer Lopez look so Gorgeous

    So, 4/5

  • Gunpowder Milkshake

    Gunpowder Milkshake

    ★★★½

    Neon-lit streets and fight scenes. Hyper-stylized violence and dark humor. Badass female characters. What's not to like.

    Karen Gillan delivers a great performance with a very great ensemble cast especially Yeoh. Her action sequences are so much more smooth and stylish, you know she is the star.

    While the movie was awesome, it had really bad dialogues, terrible one-liners and a cliched plot. Also, it didn't help that the movie dragged a bit sometimes.

    So, 3.5/5

  • Molly's Game

    Molly's Game

    ★★★

    I don't know shit about poker but this was a decent film elevated due to a great performance by the amazing and beautiful Jessica Chastain

    So, 3/5

  • Moneyball

    Moneyball

    ★★★★

    I don't even know the first thing about baseball but watching this film made me realize that it was not about the sport, it's about the main character and his story. A truly great performance by Brad Pitt supported by a unique Hill performance.

    The story is as always very tight and spontaneous from Sorkin. The direction is great. All over a very well-done film with extra kudos going to the ending. It was amazing.

    Baseball might be the reason why this film didn't gel with me as yours truly doesn't have any clue about baseball and how it's played.

    So, 4/5

  • A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    ★★★½

    This was my first Iranian film and it was pretty good. Set along this lonely and black-and-white backdrop of a town which follows a vampire and its several residents.

    A romantic horror film with very good performances, incredibly scary cinematography and a great selection of music and songs. I loved how some of the scenes are so quiet and eerie but it manages to express so many emotions through its characters.

    The movie itself is sometimes very slow but that's about it.

    So, 3.5/5

  • Big Fish

    Big Fish

    ★★★½

    Most Burton films are really goofy and absurd. While this film too has its fair share of these elements, it is by far less than the others. A more dramatic film that focuses on the fantastical life of an enigmatic yet charming man of tall tales and stories.

    It's an exploration into the relationship of a father-son. It's beautiful and wonderfully done through various vignette-like flashbacks of such an outright odd yet funny life. Ewan McGregor shines with this main…

  • True Grit

    True Grit

    ★★★½

    I don't even wanna give this a 3.5 stars since it was such a great film but it lacked something major; the spark of The Coen Brothers.

    The story is incredibly simple and the writing felt a bit underwhelming. That's all the criticism I have though.

    The cast in here and their characters are as always amazing. Hailee gives such a powerful and strong performance, Bridges and Damon too are quite perfect too.

    Then there is the beautiful cinematography by Roger Deakins capturing the solemn nature of The West and the serene musical score that pkays throughout.

    So, 3.5/5
