  • 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

  • The Invisible Man

    The Invisible Man

    ★★★★

    An outsanding science fiction film that still holds up to this day.

    An incredibly crafted and well-acted film that was a gateway to such terrific visual effects. You would think the visual effects would be a product of its time but it's surprisingly not. It had very innovative effects put on the screen.

    And for a movie so old, it has a high body count which was very controversial. It defied rules and came out the top as a success.…

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    ★★★★

    What a great ending to Natasha's story. Since we all know her faith, this film also is quite sad knowing the tragic outcome of the character but it manages to set aside that and beautifully dives into her life, a life filled with so many complex characters and stories so rich.

    Scarlett Johansson gives her apparent final appearance as the iconic Black Widow and bows down with many claps from the audience. She is the heart of this story through…

  • Nightfall

    Nightfall

    ★★★★

    An instant and classic icy thriller of sorts. Noir is seeped into the film along with a great set of characters of different personalities who most often than not clash with each other.

    So, 4/5

  • All the President's Men

    All the President's Men

    ★★★★

    A well-made investigative film that focuses on the infamous Watergate Scandal.

    I had to do some research before the film to have a little insight on the incident before diving into this film. As I am not an American, this event was really something of just knowing the name but not the details.

    Anyways, it's a fantastic piece of work driven by some great acting from the cast.

    I loved the newsroom and the production and set design. Felt like…

  • The Witch

    The Witch

    ★★★★

    Eggers is the champion

    A foreboding and atmospheric film that really is insanely creepy. All the cast were amazing. Cinematography was brilliant too.

    So, 4/5

    So, 4/5

  • The Poseidon Adventure

    The Poseidon Adventure

    ★★★★

    Watched this on a rainy day so, the experience was more fun since the story is set in the ocean

  • Vivarium

    Vivarium

    ★★★★

    Vivarium is a Twilight Zone-esque story captured into a movie. The premise is really intriguing and scary.

    The story builds up on this couple looking for a home but instead they stumble upon something sinister and inescapable.

    The characters are especially the highlight of the film. Though Eisenberg's character felt a bit dull and useless as the film went on but Poots' character was really strong.

    The production design and the set design is what makes this film so, so…

  • The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

    The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

    ★★★★

    A smart and very thrilling crime film. It has such an influence to so many new heist films. That's how you can see how iconic it is.

    The story never lets go of its pace, the characters are very engaging. The only problem of the film is it underuses its hostages. They are just so one-dimensional and plain objectives needed to be rescued.

    Also, the movie features such a cheeky ending, it leaves you smiling

    So, 4/5

  • Barton Fink

    Barton Fink

    ★★★★

    A very thought provoking period piece by the Coens. It's their most confusing narrative but it's very engaging. Both the Johns deliver marvelous performances along with the supporting cast. The dialogue is so, so tight and the screenplay is great. The symbolisms, the metaphors and the usual dash of surrealism by the Coens are all present here. The production design is another wonderful and clever technical aspect of the film if you are able to understand the symbolism

    So, 4/5

  • The Green Butchers

    The Green Butchers

    ★★★★

    This went into the unexpected story shift territory. It's absurd yet very oddly humorous. Mads and Nikolaj both give great performances.

    So, 4/5
