Ram Gopal Varma Ki Aag

I made sure to watch this film before watching Sholay partially because everyone seems to hate this movie mostly because someone dared to remake the "Godfather" of India and partly because I wanted to end on a good note and watch the better movie last. The first thing I notices about this ...

Salaam Bombay!

The film is under two hours long but feels much much longer. The direction and editing are the weakest parts of this movie. The acting is decent overall with Nana Patkar being the standout. In fact I think Nana is my favorite Indian actor even beating out Big B. Krishna was an interesting character ...

Paradox

The story is kind of slow and not that engaging although Louis Koo seems to be giving it his all. Louis Koo isn't completely convincing with the martial arts but he doesn't detract too much from the fight scenes. You can tell that Sammo Hung did the choreography for the film it has his style. As the...

A Bridge Too Far

A big epic movie stuffed to the brim with an all star cast. The size and scope of this film is more impressive the the actual story itself. The film has a very poppy score which I found distracting. Most of the cast isn't given that much to do but it doesn't really matter since there was so much goi...

Caligula

Over the top and pointlessly ridiculous. Features an over abundance of nudity which wouldn't be so bad if they wouldn't have randomly panned to a nude scene for no apparent reason other than to be like "Hey look hardcore naked people" The acting, costumes and sets were very theatrical and ...

Axing the Coffin: Death is Eternal

The movie starts off as a fairly standard action drama but then for no real reason has a comedic ghost scene followed by a nightmare sequence. Neither of these things have anything to do with the plot. The film fails to has a real protagonist or antagonist and due to this fails to be very engaging. ...

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

This film wasn't terrible and stands as a decent Sci-Fi film if judged on its own but it just doesn't compare to the original anime. The animated film explored what it means to be human and asked at what point do we stop being human if we replace ourselves with machine parts. This film however is co...

The Children (2008)

The first half of this film drags quite a bit mostly due to the fact that the parents are pretty annoying as is the teenage girl. The kids themselves were good as they acted like kids which was a nice change of pace compared to many other films. Some of the camera & editing techniques used were ...

Her Vengeance

A gritty revenge thriller that starts off with a brutal rape. There are a bunch of random and odd scenes that follow and the lead overacts quite a bit during many scenes. The vengeance portion of the film takes place during the second half and becomes more twisted, violent and hard hitting as it goe...
