Searching Film Review

One of the most unorthodox films to be made in as long as I can remember, Searching is the story of a father’s desperation after his daughter’s disappearance. The catch? The entire story is told from the screen of a laptop computer. If you can’t realistically imagine how that’s possible, join the club. I’ll tryContinue reading “Searching Film Review”

URI – The Surgical Strike: Film Review

URI – The Surgical Strike has definitely started the year off with a bang. Though the viewers know the outcome of the movie, it still encapsulates them. It is definitely one of the better Bollywood movies I have seen. The movie feels closer to a ‘Black Hawk Down’ or ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ rather than anContinue reading “URI – The Surgical Strike: Film Review”

It’s time for what I imagine would be an unpopular opinion. 2004 saw the release of what probably is the most iconic romantic film of the 21st century: The Notebook.

The Coen Brothers latest project released on Netflix earlier this year as the film adaptation to their own collection of unreleased short stories, entitled “The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.” The film is an anthology of six different stories, each exploring an aspect of the way of life of the wild west of old.

Get Out: Film Review

Comedy genius Jordan Peele made his directorial debut in thrilling horror film Get Out last year, which was met by thunderous critical approval, as well as an Oscar for outstanding writing. I’m not personally a fan of horror films. Call me generalist (or a wimp), but my image of a horror film involves someone beingContinue reading “Get Out: Film Review”
