  • Sin City

    Sin City

    ★★★★½

    From Robert Rodriquez's wacky and diverse filmography comes a graphic novel adaptation that intricately and gloomily invites the audience for a neo-noir journey that does not hold back.
    Sin City is a visual masterpiece first and foremost. The black-and-white filming with the occasional pop of primary colors is filmed phenomenally and stunningly. Every element of production in this film is incredible and unique which has made Sin City timeless. Rodriquez (and guest director Quentin Tarantino!) direct a magnificent film and…

The blend of live-action and animation is effortless and not tacky in any way. The humor is done exceptionally as it combines slapstick and risqué without trying too hard to please the adults watching the movie.
    This is not only pure Disney magic but also pure Disney intelligence!

  • The Prestige

    The Prestige

    ★★★★½

    It does not surprise me that Christopher Nolan decided to direct and write a movie about magicians since he has the knack for making cinematic magic himself.
    The Prestige is everything a viewer would expect from a Nolan production; an excellent and strong story, brilliantly fleshed and dynamic characters, unpredictable yet logical twists, and a grand cinematic scope within the direction, score, and cinematography. This is a highly engaging and solid drama that makes the viewer ponder on what is…
