Tulip Fever (2017)

Tulip Fever had a very slow beginning, peaked way before the ending, and gave us a rather crappy ending. I caught this film on my flight to New York recently. It featured one of my favourite actresses today, Alicia Vikander, in one of her steamiest roles yet. Decorated in elegant dresses of the era, she … More Tulip Fever (2017)

First Man (2018)

The First Man trailer dropped in the summer of 2018 and I was seriously drooling at the thought of seeing this Oscar contender in IMAX.  Well, I never made it out to IMAX and just watched it at a regular theatre.

It is hard not to think about other newspaper related movies like All the President’s Men and Spotlight when watching The Post. The reason I bring them up is because of … More The Post (2017)

12 Strong (2018)

Hollywood will never run out of stories for war movies. There are probably millions of stories that will never get told, while some of the most heroic ones get silver screen treatment. 12 Strong has a great premise, but I got to admit if I never heard about this event, I would have been okay. … More 12 Strong (2018)
