ROMAN J. ISRAEL, ESC. (2017)

I was supremely confident of Gary Oldman winning the Oscar for the best actor for his role as Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour. And he did win handsomely. But I hadn’t seen Denzel Washington’s act in Roman J. Israel, Esq. at that time. Now that I have seen it, I am not so sure…

MOLLY’S GAME (2017)

It breaks my heart to even think that this film lost to the disgusting “Call Me By Your Name” in the Oscar race for best-adapted screenplay. Molly’s Game is probably the most engaging film of 2017 and it is so because of the way it is written and executed. This is one of the most…

ANNIHILATION (2018)

BATMAN : YEAR ONE (2011)

I have been trying to make myself read up a lot recently and it hasn’t been easy. The reason for that is the difference that I have felt in my writing every time I have been able to finish a book. But as I mentioned before, it hasn’t been easy. Hence I tried to read…

THE SHAPE OF WATER (2017)

“The Shape of Water” is the new film by Guillermo Del Toro, the man who brought us films like Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy, Pacific Rim and the average but visually stunning Crimson Peak. “The Shape of Water” chronicles the story of Elisa (Sally Hawkins), a mute housekeeper at a top secret US research facility in the…
