Movie Review: A Quiet Place

I’m not a fan of horror. Mostly because I get scared very easily. The last time I watched a horror movie, sandwiched between my brother and my husband, both of who decided not to let me budge, was a big disaster for me, entertainment for them. So you can understand why I’ve always been skeptical about horror movies. But when my husband said he wanted to watch A Quiet Place, directed by John Krasinski and starring him and Emily Blunt, I reluctantly agreed, but mostly because I have a teeny, tiny girl-crush on the lady.

Lady Bird – Why Would You Do This To Us?

What do I say about this movie except ask the makers why they would do this to us? There are many who say that there is not much of a story in the film; that it could have been better. They say it just tells us everyday events of a Sacramento girl.

Qarib Qarib Singlle – Refreshingly Hilarious, Keeps Your Attention

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.

An Unsuitable Boy – What Were Your Editors Doing, Karan Johar?

I don’t like to diss a biography or an autobiography because after all, it is someone’s life put on paper for the world to read. There are enough detractors anyway, for every celebrity out there. Just a picture on Instagram is bound to poke the haters to spew venom. So imagine what a 300-page book about your feelings and thoughts will attract.

Introduction Post Revamp – Hello, Hello Again!

There’s nothing better in the world than feeling pumped after reading a good book or watching a good movie. Okay, I agree. Not all books and not all movies are entertaining. But you get the general idea. It is the anticipation that is most exciting.

Thor: Ragnarok – Chris Hemsworth Unravels Taika Waititi’s Magic

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.

Secret Superstar – A Brilliant Movie About Dreams And Reality

When the trailer for Secret Superstar came out some time ago, I had pegged it as just another second film of a promising actress. I had thought that she would do a few movies like this, steadily losing ground until she faded into oblivion. But Zaira Wasim is not on this list. I have no idea about the future but right now, she is as far away from this as is possible.

Baby Driver – Movie That Firmly Parks Ansel Elgort in Hollywood

If you’ve watched The Fault in Our Stars and loved it, you’ll agree with me that the most loveable part of the movie, apart from the moving story, is Ansel Elgort. He’s tall and good-looking and acts pretty well. After TFIOS, though, a lot of people weren’t too keen on Elgort’s acting chops. Despite his role in Men Women and Children garnering positivity, Elgort was summarily dismissed as just another one-time romantic hero. That’s how I see it.

Dunkirk – What’s A Little Nolan Without Confusion?

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.
