Shazam! Movie Review


The after effects of most of the DCEU films have been so chronic that I have always entered the theatre with apprehension and a genuine worry for my sanity. But even after having the lowest possible expectations, films like Justice League provided a new low. So when I saw the trailer of Shazam!, I was naturally skeptical. But as it turns out, Shazam! offers a lot of good things, and above all, it is hugely entertaining. ... 

Joker Teaser Trailer

Joaquin Phoenix as Joker

Warner Bros. released the teaser trailer of Joker starring the magnificent Joaquin Phoenix alongside the legendary Robert De Niro. The film is the first of its kind origin story as it is focused on an iconic comic book villain rather than a hero. The trailer looks freaky and early signs are that Joaquin Phoenix is a fantastic choice for this role. Phoenix plays a failed comedian who is ridiculed by society, eventually going insane and turning to a life of crime. The film is set to be inspired by executive producer Martin Scorsese's Taxi Driver, Raging Bull and King of Comedy. Directed by Todd Phillips who was an interesting choice for the film since this will be his first action/drama having largely directed out n out comedies like The Hangover Series, Raod Trip, Starsky and Hutch etc. The film releases on 4th October in India. ... 

Man of Steel Movie Review: Man of Steel Is Very Brittle


The most awaited film this summer is finally here and what an anti-climax it has turned out to be. I am rather mad because I have actually traveled 800 Kms and spent 3000 bucks to watch this film in English in a quality 3D theatre. It reminds me so much of The Amazing Spiderman which had so much promise and turned out to be a huge let down. Man Of Steel also falls in the same category. It is a super disappointment because of the no. of years we have been waiting for someone to do justice to this incredible superhero. We all had hoped that this wait was over with  Man of Steel as names like Christopher Nolan, Zack Snyder were behind it. Not to be.
