    Sword of Trust

    ★★★★

    I loved this so much!! Sword of Trust is probably one of the most underrated flicks of the year. So I've watched Marc Maron's Thinky Pain before and I liked him a lot. And today, I was looking him up and I hadn't heard of Sword of Trust so I just decided I'll watch it. This was funny. For me, personally, I'd say all the jokes landed. But as all comedies go, this could be a hit or miss for…

    American Factory

    ★★★★

    Impressive, interesting, and sincere. I was expecting some sort of neoliberal hogwash considering it's being produced by the Obamas. American Factory doesn't gloss over any aspect of the situation: Fuyao Glass America, an American division of the Chinese group setting up a factory in Ohio.

    ★★★

    I don't get why creepy gets dubbed as 'old school'.
    The music and cinematography is beautiful. VJS is dorky as hell. And great performances from both VJS and Trisha. The stalking and the intense pining over a school crush that never took off as a relationship is just too weird and yeah (there I go again) plain creepy. After 22 years. Seriously?! Pretty sure if STR did 96, it will be categorized as 'creepy' but since it's good-guy-VJS it's 'old school romance'

    One good thing is getting to watch Janagaraj again. That coupled with the school setting is proper nostalgia material.

    ★★★½

    This was better than I imagined it to be. This is a good remake that pretty much recreated every single scene from Pink. Only wish they could have tweaked it a lot more. Thala is unbelievably good. His character is not equivalent to amitabh's. So I feel it's impossible to compare. The depiction and portrayal of his mental illness could have been done better. I felt Vidya Balan was unnecessary but I was also glad her cameo was extremely brief,…
