Review: Justice League (2017)

A couple of months back, a three-level shopping mall just opened in our city, and with it came 6 cinemas. And for that I am thrilled because at least it will divide the crowds. Although I have come to realize that the crowds still converge on that other mall because this new one charges a…

Review: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

I remember a couple of years back when Edgar Wright’s name was first attached to Ant Man, and everybody was excited. But sadly that excitement was short-lived as he went on to leave the film due to “creative differences”. After that, I assumed that Marvel Cinematic Universe operates on some sort of template, a set…

Review: Baby Driver (2017)

I have developed a tiny bit of antipathy for car crashes and car explosions and car chases. Unless it is in Valhalla or Tatooine, or set in some brilliantly crafted set piece, and the cars look like monster trucks from hell or intergalactic speeders. But cops chasing regular cars on regular streets, I view with…

Review: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

One of things Lily and I talked about, before watching Blade Runner 2049 was whether or not we could take with us, people who haven’t seen the original version, Ridley Scott’s 1982 Blade Runner. I deduced that yes, they would probably make a movie that can stand alone, it’ll be beneficial too, finance wise, not…

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD As George R.R. Martin once said, stories in which only the extras die are “such a cheat”. All men must die. Valar Morghulis. This is true. But here’s the deal, deaths should have a purpose, they should make sense to the overall story. The cause of death doesn’t matter, death by meat grinder, death by…

TV Review: Game of Thrones 7 Episode 5: Eastwatch

You know what? I propose that there’d be a whole episode devoted to just Drogon flying, screeching, and dracarys-ing for a full one hour. I’d be riveted! These dragons are so fantastically rendered! With that said, episode 5 has a tad less of Drogon in it, and therefore compared to Episode 4: The Spoils of…

Mini Reviews #6: Okja, To The Bone and Riverdale

Okja (2017)  Okja is a heartwarming tale about a girl and her pet, a genetically-modified super pig. But what keeps this from being your any average pet movie, is that it not only explores the pet and owner bond but tackles a lot of meaty topics as well. (Nope, I will not apologize for that…
