    “Don’t think, just do” 


    Pure blockbuster exhilaration in all its high flying glory. A long awaited sequel that does supreme justice to the original and elevates past the trendsetter to set its own mark as a action experience that few can match from a technical and stunt level. Flying sequences that are spectacular and a roller coaster ride that breaks all atmospheric barriers and maneuvers in a elite from that will force anyone to stand up and applaud the skill…

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★

    Cold winds, bodies covered in blood, primal screams of rage, thirst for revenge, loved ones murdered in cold blood, birth of new life, blistering tides of water, spirits, and conquering your fate. The Northman leaves nothing untouched delivering a historical fable worthy of excellence. Eggers’s attention to detail in resurrecting the era of the Vikings remains unmatched; the prose of the dialogue, costume design, the retelling of ancient myths proves that the director’s vision was brought to life even with…

    The Mist

    ★★★★

    Deserves a heavy bouquet of flowers not just for the horror genre but for one of the most shocking and smartly done twists ever pulled off a film. A sleight of hand so good that even author Stephen King consider it a better resolution to the one he penned for the book. Heavy dose of wrecking despair that never fails to floor me even with the millions of times I have seen this film unfold. Does a great job of…

    The Haunting

    The funniest thing is that I told myself that I hadn’t seen this film before and was coming in with fresh eyes. The punchline unveiled itself when I saw that I already had this logged from two years ago; I guess when a film like this doesn’t hold any interesting wrinkles and becomes forgettable just minutes after the final frame disappears from the screen, it’s easy to forget that this was viewed before. I would love to see the original version of this story, another case of a remake fumbling a chance to be seen in the same light as its predecessor.

  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★

    The modern update of the supernatural entity known as Candyman is impressive how it weaves racial and systemic inequalities, generational trauma, Cronenberg body horror, and Hitchcock inspired atmosphere. Nia DaCosta shows that she is a student of the great directors whose bread and butter are psychological thriller/horror; the handle of the camera with its revealing close ups, hypnotizing tracking shots, wide angles, and upside down/reserve motifs keep the viewer on edge and enclosing the senses in an inescapable prison of…
