  • A Flying Jatt

    A Flying Jatt 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Aug, 2016

    I'm not a big Bollywood person. Aside from 2010's Enthiran, a massive musical parody of Terminator, I'm really unfamiliar with this particular cinematic corner of the world. So, going into A Flying Jatt, I was relatively blind aside from the fact that it was a parody of superhero cinema. That is the best mind set to go into A Flying Jatt with, as expectations can't really fathom how crazy this entire affair becomes.

The themes are darker, the characters are fleshed out, the newer characters serve to give the universe further depth and the reveal during the climax is often cited as one of the most…

    Short Term 12 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2013

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
