6/10
Quite well crafted actually.
12 May 2022
This movie is visually stunning especially compared to the average mcu flick. It has contrast,it has depth of field it has interesting angles. The score is also notable as we have Danny elfman on it. Sam Raimi was given a good amount of freedom to do what he wants and I'm here for it. The actors turn up and give great performances (well most of them). However everyone individually is doing their best to nake this film great except the screenwriters apparently. The movie isn't converned with making sense or following its own previously established rules. Some characters are poorly defined(America Chavez). All in all you have a poorly and lazily written script that drags the movie down a lot.

TL;DR Could have beengreat but poor script. Well crafted otherwise.

6/10.

Whiplash (2014)
10/10
Electrifying indeed.
24 April 2022
This movie is nothing short of brilliant. It is shot,written and directed masterfully. Same can be said about the score. The actors deliver some of the most amazing performances I have seen in a movie. J. K. Simmons' towering presence is felt throughout the movie. The pacing is brilliant and it keeps you engaged for every second. The ending is amazing and some of the best I have ever seen.

One of the best movies I have seen and definitely a must watch. A beautiful blend of brilliant cinematography, acting, writing,directing and overall top tier movie making. Really exited to see the other movies from director Damien Chazelle.

Inception (2010)
10/10
What a movie!
21 March 2022
This is honestly one of the best movies I have ever seen. I see it as tied with The Dark Knight for the number 1 spot. It executes such a mind-blowing concept with such elegance it is amazing every time you watch. The score is literal perfection as it complements the beautiful cinematography and great editing,Hans Zimmer is truly a force to be reckoned with. The casting for this movie is terrific with all performances being great all around. The movie is paced and structured perfectly and this results in the viewer not taking their eyes of the screen for even a second. Amazing action set pieces and visual effects. The script is great as Nolan's poetic dialogue definitely works for this movie.

Actually a perfect movie.

10/10.

The Batman (2022)
9/10
What is brilliantly acted,shot,written and the best comic book movie since the dark knight? You
11 March 2022
This movie does everything one may want from a batman movie. It leans heavily on the comics and has a lot of respect for the source material. Pattinson kills it so does Zoë as Catwoman, Farrel as penguin and Dano as riddler. Jeffrey Wright also silences the haters that doubted if he was right for the role(tho to be honest we don't get too much on his character but what is have seen is brilliant).

The movie is nearly 3 hours long but it never feels like it drags at it remains very focused on the main plot so it feels like no time was wasted. Visually this movie is brilliant. Every other shot has tremendous amounts of production value in it and it's thanks to Grieg Fraser behind the camera. The movie blends practical effects with grounded CGI perfectly to create the great action set pieces. Talking about action it is choreographed so well. This is the most brutal batman except for probably Affleck's but he killed so it doesn't really count. The score by Michael giacchino is insanely good and fits the overall tone perfectly.

This is a dark and grim noir film that isn't suited for kids despite it's Pg-13 rating but it's definitely worth seeing no matter what you know or don't know about batman. Definite reccomend.

10/10.

Moonfall (2022)
5/10
Good popcorn flick. Enjoy the spectacle.
5 February 2022
So the premise for this movie is quite dumb and instead of the movie being self aware of it's own goofiness it doubles down on the seriousness which results in taking time to explain the plot. This leaves the characters with less time to develop and with the plot not being spectacular it is weak on both fronts. Also as it is a movie about disasters it doesn't spend enough time on earth and when it does you don't really care due to the reasons listed above.

Vfx is good visual spectacle is definitely in there.

Overall see it at the theatres because it's selling point is vfx.

Very good and enjoyable. But top 20 of all time?
20 January 2022
This movie was a very pleasant surprise especially the latter half of it. It was great fanservice and the very fact we can see all those actors unite on screen is amazing.

However it's a mess. A very enjoyable one but still a mess. It's obviously been shot separately with the actors not being in the same rooms due to covid but it still feels stiff at times because of that. Also the CGI is slightly undercooked as they probably worked on it all the way up to release day. The first act falls flat especially when you compare it to the rest of the movie.

Overall this is a good movie however it has no right to be above movies like The green mile, Inception, Interstellar, Gladiator, Alien (1979) , Django unchained etc.

Dune (2021)
9/10
Amazing but it has some minor issues.
30 November 2021
The movie has amazing visuals with its great utilisation of CGI as the camera work is done in such a way that it's not glaringly obvious it's computer generated. It it slowly paced but the pacing suits the source material being adapted. Hans Zimmer absolutely delivers on the score as it is unique,exotic and otherworldly as it should be. The cast is great too. Great directing by Dennis Villeneuve!

My main issue with the movie is that it is not well structured in terms of the story. There comes a point where it just abruptly ends and no real climax is reached. I acknowledge the fact that a part 2 is coming and this will probably be resolved but I judge a movie for what it is having to wait a couple of years doesn't help.

Another 'flaw' is the exposition dump at the begging. It was done quite elegantly but is is still a bit overwhelming as important as it was it should have probably been given a bit more of space to breathe.

But those are mostly nitpicks and overall the movie is spectacular 9/10.

Amazing movie!

Great story, awesome score and big practical effects. The performances are amazing and you can't go wrong about watching this one. I would watch the extended cut which adds 15 minutes bit the normal cut is awesome too! Must watch!

I really liked it!
2 November 2021
I thought it was pretty good. The main character is interesting and cool. The other characters are hit or miss. Overall ,despite the pacing which I found to drag every now and then and the dialogue being clunky every once in a while, this is a very enjoyable movie.

Silly,but a fun ride.
27 July 2021
The script makes little to no sense but if you ignore all the plot holes you will have yourself a fun 2 hour movie made to entertain. Also the pacing is weird as towards the end it appears as though they wanted to include another battle but didn't quite nail it. Overall good summer action movie.
