  • Stand by Me

    Stand by Me

    ★★★★

    It's something I think about a lot. The fact that so many of the defining moments and experiences in my life, took place with people who are no longer in it. At times this makes me sad, but mostly it's bittersweet and reflective; not losing the significance of those moments.

    Stand By Me is a film about one of those defining experiences, and Rob Reiner handles it with the care and bittersweet touch that a story like this needs. It's…

    Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge

    ★★★★½

    Honestly, there are very few films that make me want to fall in love the way this one does. The European backdrop, the slow burn romance, the family drama, the iconic songs - ugh, i want to roll around in it 😭

    There are many elements about it that are dated: the attitude towards NRIs losing their Indian values; the incredibly uncomfortable scene in which Raj tricks Simran into thinking they slept together; the sheer blaring 90s aesthetic (Simi, please…

  • The School for Good and Evil

    The School for Good and Evil

    ★★½

    A big-name director, a plethora of A-list Hollywood actors, elaborate design, a huge VFX budget, and an already established young adult fanbase. On paper, The School For Good and Evil has all the ingredients to create something magical. Unfortunately, something went wrong in the process, because the end product, albeit grand and spectacular, can’t escape its convoluted plot long enough to reach the heights of Netflix’s vision.


    In theory, it’s a standard fantasy romp. However, with its specific in-world language,…

    Minari

    ★★★★½

    Minari is wonderful, wonderful. An intimate and inviting tale about family, I was actually surprised at how well it's done while watching it, not because it's not stunning, but because it's quietly so, capturing the Yi family's life with a deft normalcy.

    I was unaware before hand that this was semi-autobiographical for Chung, but it makes perfect sense given how personal it feels, at yet in a way that exudes its emotional experience outwards so those who haven't lived it…

    tick, tick...BOOM!

    ★★★★

    In a year that has been overcrowded with movie musicals, it can be easy to want to sigh at the arrival of another. But, if In The Heights was the movie musical for general film fans, and Annette was the one for art-house connoisseurs, then Tick…Tick…Boom! is the movie musical for the theatre kids. Directed by Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, centred around the life of Rent creator Jonathan Larson, Tick...Tick...Boom! is an ode to the artistic process; a love letter…
