    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    Another great one!

  • The Prince of Tides

    The Prince of Tides

    ★★★★½

    Barbra Streisand directs and stars in this masterfully crafted film about a character so deeply traumatized from his dysfunctional family and his journey from recovering from such a trauma.

    Nick Nolte turns in a very charming and sympathetic performance while Streisand plays a really sweet and supportive character, a beautiful and pretty looking character too. She looked so damn pretty.

    So, 4.5/5

  • The Big Lebowski

    The Big Lebowski

    ★★★★½

    The rug really tied the room together

    Oh man, what a movie. What a movie. The Coens have the most absurd situations turned into darkly hilarious shenanigans.

    The plot is simple, there is a case of mistake identity and so, begins this acid trip of a journey. Literally.

    Jeff Bridges knocks it out of the park as the iconic The Dude aka El Duderino. John Goodman is also explosive too.

    The other characters too are so on brand by the…

  • Jerry Maguire

    Jerry Maguire

    ★★★★½

    "You had me at hello"

    Its part romantic comedy, part sports film. A very weird mix of genres that Cameron Crowe somehow makes it work. It's a seriously endearing and optimistic film.

    Tom Cruise and Renee Zellweger have insane and magnetic chemistry with each other and they play off so well off each other. Then there's the sports aspect that too is great due to an iconic performance from Cuba Gooding Jr and Regina King. Also, that kid actor was…

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★½

    Who says sequels cannot be better? They obviously haven't seen A Quiet Place Part II

    The movie has two opening sequences and both of them are bangers. The way they put forth such an incredibly tense and gruesome moments was amazing.

    The movie never drags at all. The performances are brilliant too. Cillian Murphy is an amazing addition too.

    Oh man, the cinematography was a visual candy. The shots especially near the ending was beautiful to look at.

    Overall, a much better and intense sequel where it gambles it all in crafting such intense and dreadful sequences and wins.

    So, 4.5/5

  • Mother

    Mother

    ★★★★½

    Bong Joon-Ho is a genre himself

    For real though, he mixes genre like it's a fruit punch. Absurd and dark humour, a looming mystery and melancholic drama. The real thing though is when he subverts expectations hard when near the end of the film, something drastic occurs that changes your whole perception.

    So, 4.5/5

  • Arrival

    Arrival

    ★★★★½

    Even though this film is not perfect, I am at a loss of words. A story crafted so well and delicately, a story so tragic in its roots, you see it coming at you hard.

    Amy Adams gives another incredible performance along with the other cast. The visual effects are a sight to behold too. A masterwork by Denis. Truly, this director is becoming one of my favorites going on.

  • The King

    The King

    ★★★★½

    A riveting period piece detailing the early ascension of the throne by King Henry V. It's such a birlliant film.

    Timothee Chalamet dominates the film with his powerful and domineering performance even though his appearance is a bit skinny.

    The story is well-written. The characters are all developed. They contribute to the story.

    The cinematography and set design are what makes this film settle. The amazing set pieces depicting very violent and brutal fights.

    That ending too was amazing. A very smart subversion with a late twist that challenges every decision the story and its characters chose.

    So, 4.5/5

  • Fallen Angels

    Fallen Angels

    ★★★★½

    Well, definitely not better than Chungking Express but its a very great spiritual successor to the film.

    The stylized wide-camera work and the characters are really amazing. Wong Kar Wai stiches together two stories into one, interconnected with each other and sometimes taking place at the same time. When the story is focused on the first story, the narrative slows down and it's not clear sometimes. While the second story is more prominent, the film turned a lot better. It…

  • The Art of Self-Defense

    The Art of Self-Defense

    ★★★★½

    I am very proud of myself that I figured out the twist from the so early in the film. Nevertheless, this film is really very offbeat yet very simple in its plot. Nothing very grand or stylish. Not that I mean that grand or stylish movies are bad, it's just that sometimes simple movies are really unique too.

    Anyways, the performances here from the cast is just sublime. Eisenberg nails his role, Poots too but the main standout is the…

  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    ★★★★½

    Another great entry to the franchise, this one does tone down the violence from the previous one but still manages to be such an entertaining adventure film

  • Friends: The Reunion

    Friends: The Reunion

    ★★★★½

    I have seen Friends four times by now. I started watching this show back in late 2018. I had recently finished my exams and was itching for another sitcom to binge watch. I had heard of Friends but till that point, I never bothered to watch it.

    As I started the show and went through season after season, this show changed my life. Whenever I was sad or whenever I was alone, I would just turn Friends on the tv…
