The first thing you notice about Swiss Army Man when you research it before watching is the abundance of Dans in it. Like John Green’s abundance of Katherines. Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe are in it, while the directors are called Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert. It is only fitting that the movie starts off with the words: A Film by Daniels.
I am a HUGE Agatha Christie fan. I don’t have to say it but her style of writing is unparalleled. There has been no one in history so far who has been able to build mysteries and solve them as well as she has been able to. And to think that she did this with an array of eccentric detectives? It’s something that places her out of reach of any limit. Indeed, she is as limitless as limitless can get.
The trailer of Coco seemed to me to be bright and happy and intriguingly heartwarming. There’s music, there are smiles, there are tears, there’s anger, there are people who you can relate to, and then, there are skeletons in the closet. When I say skeletons in the closet, I mean it in the most honest, literal way ever. And oh, what a terrific combination this turns out to be!
If I could tell you what I think of Tumhari Sulu in a nutshell, I couldn’t. That’s because there are a lot of positives about the film, but there are also a number of ‘buts’.
Qarib Qarib Singlle is the story of Yogi (Irrfan) and Jaya Shashidharan (Parvathy Thiruvothu). Yogi and Jaya have completely conflicting personalities. While Yogi is a rich businessman who is modest about his wealth, carefree, and lives in the present, Jaya works in insurance, and feels the need to keep people around her happy.
Anyone who knows me can tell you what a huge Chris Hemsworth fan I am. Since this is about the movie and not just the man, I’ll spare you the details. 😛 But there isn’t a scale on which to measure the awesomeness of Thor: Ragnarok. It starts with a bang, takes a break with a bang, and ends with a bang. Let me dissect it for you.
Dunkirk is Nolan’s attempt to impress the story upon audiences through visuals and music for most part of the movie. It’s the story of English forces stranded in Dunkirk while being gunned down upon by Allied Forces, and their evacuation.
If you have watched Neeraj Pandey’s 2015 action thriller, Baby, you’ll know Shabana. Played by Taapsee Pannu, Shabana is a character who oozes grit and determination. Patriotic to the hilt and righteous in the most positive sense of the word, Shabana knows no limit when it comes to serving her country.
I did come around to finally, finally watching Fight Club. And now that I have, I understand the years and years of people staring at me like I was mad for not having watched this classic. I did question my sanity for not having watched it earlier.
I’ve been waiting a long time to find the perfect movie that will make me write a review and kick off the movie reviews section of The Melodramatic Bookworm. Until a few days ago, even the thought of starting this barren section did not cross my mind. And then I watched Stanley ka Dabba. The movie released in 2011, but it was only recently that I got a chance to watch it. Halfway into the movie, I was chiding myself for not having viewed this gem much earlier!
