  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★★★½

    The 7th film adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's classic novel of the same name also happens to be the only one that I've seen so far and now I don't need to check out the previous versions anymore because Greta Gerwig's Little Women is an instant classic that impresses on all fronts while establishing her as a creative force to be reckoned with.

    Written & directed by Gerwig in what's her solo sophomore feature, the film is crafted with so much…

  • The Lighthouse

    The Lighthouse

    ★★★★½

    Do it once, it's a fluke but do it twice and it becomes something else. After watching The Lighthouse, I believe it's suffice to say that there is no contemporary filmmaker doing a better job than Robert Eggers when it comes to recreating a particular time period on film canvas.

    GoodFellas

    ★★★½

    GoodFellas chronicles the rise & fall of mob associate Henry Hill & his friends from the 1950s to 1980s. The story follows his journey in the mafia world, covering his…

  • The Departed

    The Departed

    ★★★★

    Helmed by a master filmmaker in complete control of his craft, fuelled by a razor-sharp script that packs armour-piercing dialogues, and further bolstered by a star-studded ensemble that fires on all cylinders, The Departed is one rare Hollywood remake that outshines its original in all aspects, and ranks amongst the sharpest, slickest & most sophisticated examples of its genre.

    Directed by Martin Scorsese, the film marks the 3rd collaboration between Scorsese & Leonardo DiCaprio and finds the duo working in better harmony…

    Fight Club

    ★★★★★

    I look around, I look around, I see a lot of reviews for this classic. Which means a lot of people have been breaking the first two rules of Fight Club.

    Now if you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to…
