After the stage is set,Continue reading “Money Heist Part 1 Episode 3 – Tension Runs High”

Money Heist rewatch and lessons – Part 1 episode 1&2

So, as a preparation for the upcoming new season of Money Heist, I decided to start rewatching the series from the start. It was fun, even though I am quite sure I will not finish all of them before the new season rolls in, judging from my snail pace of progressing at the moment. AndContinue reading “Money Heist rewatch and lessons – Part 1 episode 1&2”

Tom&Jerry – A movie that brings back nostalgia

For those of us in our 30s and 40s, seeing the trailer and advertisement of the new Tom&Jerry movie really brings back a sense of nostalgia. We grew up with the original Tom&Jerry cartoon series, and although I always rooted for Jerry, I also sometimes sympathised with the poor cat, especially since he was mostContinue reading “Tom&Jerry – A movie that brings back nostalgia”

Soul – A nice Pixar movie to start the new year with

It’s a nice and meaningful movie for the whole family. It will be perceived a bit differently by people of different ages, but I strongly believe that everyone will get something for themselves. It remains to be seen whether the movie will become a classic, like Up, Inside Out or Toy Story, but one thing for sure, it will warm your heart in these winter days and make you feel that life is still beautiful.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 – Winterfell

TheContinue reading “Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 1 – Winterfell”

Logan Lucky – A surprisingly cool movie to watch

I picked up this movie purely based on the high ratings it has gathered in other review sites, and to tell the truth, I almost wanted to switch to another a few times in the first 30 minutes or so. The story built up quite slowly initially, and the actors seemed boring and lack ofContinue reading “Logan Lucky – A surprisingly cool movie to watch”

Avengers Infinity War – Arguably the best Marvel movie ever

Normally I don’t like movies with ensemble cast. This is an exception. Despite the huge number of heroes, the movie still gave them enough time to shine instead of just a blink-and-you-miss-it appearance. And despite the various locations, the flow of the whole movie was clear and logical and not ended up in a messContinue reading “Avengers Infinity War – Arguably the best Marvel movie ever”

La La Land – A Beautiful movie with a bittersweet ending

According to many critics and reviews, this is one of the best movies of the year, and a strong contender for the coming award season, so it was an obvious choice once we managed to squeeze a little bit of free time out of our busy routines to go and catch a movie. However, IContinue reading “La La Land – A Beautiful movie with a bittersweet ending”

Yeah Inferno – A Good Movie, ‘Though Much Simpler than the Book

For Dan Brown’s fans, this must be the most awaited movie of the year. Especially after a long wait since Angels & Demons a few years ago. Well, I do not know if it satisfies all the hardcore fans or not, but it’s definitely not a bad movie at all. If there is one thingContinue reading “Yeah Inferno – A Good Movie, ‘Though Much Simpler than the Book”

The Danish Girl – A beautiful movie, with a Soul

  If you only have enough time to watch 12 movies this year (assuming one movie a month on average), then make sure this is one of them. It may not be a classic yet, but it’s definitely worth watching, and a deep, soulful, touching and beautiful movie. And Eddie Redmayne has done it again.Continue reading “The Danish Girl – A beautiful movie, with a Soul”
