3rd Anniversary

I was watching Jagga Jasoos once again over the weekend and decided to write a post. When I was looking up the details, I realized that the film released on 14th July 2017. So this post becomes all the more appropriate as yesterday marked the 3rd anniversary of a beautiful film that got marred by controversy and its gigantic ambitions. Nevertheless, I look at Jagga as a film that almost pulled off the impossible. Creating a true-blue musical adventure film for kids. No one else has even come close.   ...

It came back with a bang when ownership changed hands and Paramount pictures started reruns across over 200 domestic and international markets to recover some of the losses. Star Trek garnered a cult following and became a pop-culture icon.  ...

Ralph breaks the internet

6 years after "I'm gonna wreck it" became somewhat of a cult phrase, the big man is back with his adorable little friend. Ralph and Vanellope have been friends for six years and Ralph could not be happier.

DuckTales Season 1 Review

DuckTales

Back in 1990, there was no cable TV and hence no Cartoon Network. I did not have the luxury of 24-hours of Centurions or Swat Kats. All I had was Sunday. It was the day, more like the hour of cartoons on Doordarshan and like all other kids, I waited for it through the week. This was 1 hour of pure adventure. Death-defying, high-octane, action of Ducktales and Talespin. I loved watching it and would not miss it for anything. As Cartoon Network started, the sunset on Ducktales and Talespin. ...
