Bound (1996)

The movie is a dramatized adaptation of the real-life story of transman Brandon Teena, who was raped and killed by locals after realizing her biological gender.

The Boys in the Band (1970)

Brokeback Mountain (2005)

One of the most remarkable LGBTQ movies that came out in the last decade came, Brokeback Mountain had the Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead. The actors play the role of two cowboys who are hired to tend the flock of sheep in Wyoming circa. The two end up developing feelings for each other even though they were married. What makes this movie different is that it showed Hollywood that homosexual romances can have the same intensity and depth as heterosexual relationships.

Call Me by Your Name (2017)

The latest addition to the list of mainstream LGBTQ movies of Hollywood, Call Me By Your Name is one of the most recognized movies on the list.

6 Best Mind-Blowing Movies On Netflix

by Kaylen Summers

The Perfection (2019)

Try watching the trailer for this movie and figure out what it is all about. No clue, right?! It’s better that way. Don’t let anyone else spoil it for you. Because you really need to see this to understand how twisted this tale can be. This is one movie that has literally earned its place on this list.

Gerald’s Game (2017)

Gerald’s Game is very simple in its premise. When her husband’s sex game goes wrong, Jessie is left handcuffed to a bed in a remote lake house. Tapping on the basic fears in oneself, this psychological horror movie is about how far a person will go to stay alive.

The Invitation (2015)

This movie is brilliant in its ability to conjure two interesting plots into one. The first one terrifies you with a cult performing some dreadful ritual, while the second story is about a man who is driven into the point of a complete mental breakdown because of his past.

 Primal Fear (1996)

Edward Norton plays the role of a stuttering altar boy in this legal thriller. He is accused of murder.

Raw (2016)

After getting reunited, the mother-daughter duo must now fight off the film’s killer.

1408 (2007)

This adaption is of a lesser-known tale from Stephen King. The movie may be PG13, but it has enough of King’s trademark pulpy gore and scatological humor to give you chilling ghostly thrills and psychological horrors.

The Ring (2002)

There is nothing more spooky than The Ring, when it comes to PG13 horror. It is by far the scariest PG-13 movie ever made. The movie is an adaptation of the Japanese film Ringu, which is outstanding source material. The concept of unavoidable viral death and some scary iconography, this own is a cult classic.

What Lies Beneath (2000)

What Lies Beneath definitely has some major PG13 chills to offer. The movie revolves around the life of Claire and Norman who has moved back to his old house. As usual, the couple finds some spooky stuff happening around them. The movie is best for its casting of Harrison Ford. It’s not every day that you see him play the bad guy.

‘Stagecoach’ is on Amazon Prime. But is worth watching?!

by Kaylen Summers

American Cinema and its development owe a lot to the Westerns. Ultra stylized gun fights, morally muddy protagonist and lots of bloody violence- nothing is more nothing more wholesome, subversive, and iconic than a good western movie. However, for movie-history enthusiasts, the equation will not be complete without directors like John Ford and actors like John Wayne. Pioneers in their own ways, these people gave us some of the most memorable Westerns of all time- with Stagecoach still occupying a powerful and significant position in film history. But what makes this cult classic worth seeing after all these years?!. Let’s have some whiskey shots and find out.

Academy Awards

Released in the same year as Gone with the WindThe Wizard of OzMr. Smith Goes to WashingtonWuthering Heights, and Of Mice and Men, Stagecoach still managed to score seven Oscar nominations among the heavy competition. It got nominated for best picture, director, editing, art direction, and cinematography. It even bagged the prize for supporting actor (Thomas Mitchell) and music direction.

First Modern Western

Though Westerns were exceedingly popular in the early days of cinema, by the 1930s it fell out of favor. Nobody took them seriously and they ended up us low-budget B-movies. However, John Ford revived the lost status of the genre with Stagecoach. The movie brought realism and new storytelling methods to the genre and was a huge hit. For that, it is considered the first “modern” Western.

Influenced Later Movies

Stagecoach not only revitalized the Western but also became one of the most iconic and influencing movies of all time- for not just Westerns, but other genres as well. An example of this is the one scene in which the stuntman, Yakima Canutt, drops from a horse onto the ground and is dragged under the stagecoach. This scene can be seen imitated in later movies like Raiders of the Lost Ark and Maverick.

An Ensemble Film

Breaking away from the conventional Western movie plot, Stagecoach is an ensemble movie. It has a storyline with clear-cut main characters. The structure movie is much similar to the modern disaster movie. If you replace the threat of an alien invasion or a massive earthquake with the threat of an Indian attack, then you will get the formula for an ensemble movie like Stagecoach.

Officially Got Remade Twice

There are not many movies that get a remake. However, Stagecoach got officially remade twice. In 1966, a version of the movie was made with Ann-Margret as the prostitute, Red Buttons as the booze salesman, Bing Crosby as the doctor, and Alex Cord as Ringo. Later in 1986, a made-for-TV version was released with Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, and Waylon Jennings.

Is Willy Wonka Really A Harry Potter Wizard?! Here Are Some Proofs

by Kaylen Summers

There is a popular theory going on among internet users that the King of Chocolate, Willy Wonka is a wizard from the Harry Potter universe. Not just any wizard. Fans are suggesting that it is George Weasley who has grown up to become Wonka himself.

The idea of these two magical universes converging itself is enough for our hearts to swoon. But is there really any evidence to back this over-the-top theory? We decided to do a little bit of our own investigation to find out.

It is obvious for any fan of both to notice similarities in the various stories from two iconic universes. So, we can assume that the story of Weasly taking up the mantle of Willy Wonka happened in the years after his twin brother Fred died at the Battle of Hogwarts.

After considering his luck with ‘Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes’, George might have decided to take his talent elsewhere. Even before ‘Weasley’s Wizarding Wheezes’ was known for selling magical variations of joke candies, prank products, and other objects. So it not that far for him to focus more on candy making than what he used to do with his brother.

Afterall their early products, ‘Puking Pastille’ seems to be a perfect fit for Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory alongside Violet Beauregarde’s bubble gum or Mike Teavee’s chocolate television. The possibility that these candies were made by the same person at a different time in his life is very much there.

Another notable coincidence is how Willy is a bit of a recluse, extremely secretive, and relentlessly offbeat in social deliveries. Since he is using magic for making candies, this awkward behavior is just him trying to keep the Wizarding world a secret from others.

Perhaps the most noticeable connection between the two universes is from the Oompa Loompas. Though they are fabricated folklore-like backstory, we all know that they are actually house-elves (We refuse to think differently!). Even though these elves love to serve their master, we may assume that they are given a generous compensation considering George’s sister-in-law Hermione Granger was known at Hogwarts to advocate for the welfare of house-elves.

Let’s not forget also the many possible attributes the two characters share: red hair, silly clashing outfits including a top hat, an undeniable talent for underhanded yet quipping insults, and even hearing loss.

What do you think?! Are both these characters the same?! Let us know in the comments below.

The Great Escape

During the World War, it was really impossible to escape from the Nazi Prison. They had high-security ‘escape-proof’ camp and one failed attempt and you are sure to end up dead. However, some of the prisoners formulated one of the most ambitious escape attempts of World War II. Will they be able to succeed?! Based on real events, this is one movie that is worth seeing.

10 Awesome Movies That Will Keep You Entertained

by Kaylen Summers

We are not new to aimlessly scrolling through our streaming platform trying to find something good to watch. It’s like fighting boredom with boredom. However, we have just the right dose of flicks to make you not worry about boredom no more. From heart-warming romantic comedies to fast-paced thrillers to cult classics we have gathered some awesome movies that everyone should see at least once.

Go get your glass of wine and settle in for the evening.  Because here are our pick of awesome movies to watch when you’re bored.

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)

This one is an anthology that follows six stories for a duration of two hours. With Western revisionism at the heart of the film, the Coen brothers play up almost every element that forms a part of conventional cinema in a few handpicked genres – Gothic mysteries, romance, and slapstick comedy. Amidst abundant violence and killings, the film gallops across the canvas of western legends. A rather intelligently chronicled account highlighting the nihilistic stains in the fabric of civilizational history.

Snatch (2000)

Made in his iconic film making style, this crime comedy from Guy Ritchie is a fun British jaunt starring Brad Pitt and Jason Statham. While one part of the plot follows the diamond thief Benicio del Toro, the other part is about the small-time boxing promoter played by Statham. del Toro is looking to sell his stolen goods to some double-crossing gangsters. On the other hand, Statham is on the run from a ruthless drug lord who loves to torture.

The Apartment (1960)

C.C. Baxter decides to play wingman to his philandering office superiors by lending them his apartment for their illicit affairs just to get into their good books. His trade-off seems fair until he finds out that his crush has an affair with his boss and that is just the beginning of Baxter’s miserable yet humorous romantic tragedy. 

The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

Harold Meyerowitz is a sculpting artist whose borderline narcissism overrides his instincts as a father. Thanks to this attitude he has managed to raise two sons with malignant thoughts for one another, waiting to explode at any given time. There is also a daughter who does not die for attention and comes across as the sensible one of the lot with her limited yet poignant dialogues. A deviant family drama garnished with Noah Baumbach’s hallmark astringent comedy!

The Late Bloomer (2016)

The title marks the late onset of puberty for Peter Newmans who happens to be a sex therapist himself. Tragic? Well just wait until you see how the puberty that is 15 years late to arrive hits him overwhelmingly. All the mood swings and voice cracking happen in just one single month. The movie is strictly not recommended if you find it uncomfortable discussing sex out in the open. Directed by Kevin Pollack and starring Johnny Simmons in the lead role, this movie is a downright horny comedy.

Devil (2010)

Produced and written by none other than M. Night Shyamalan, this movie has one hell of a twisted ending. The flick is about a group of people stuck in an elevator together. Soon, they start dying one by one and it becomes obvious that one among them is behind all this. The movie ends with a shocking reveal of who really is the devil among them.

Beetlejuice (1988)

A ghost couple is disturbed by the fact that their home is haunted by a conceited human family. Quite a reversal of roles from the traditional premise of horror movies, this forms the basis for the humorous tale. Beetlejuice ( Michael Keaton) is the star of the show who is hired by the couple to free themselves from the wrath of the humans. Directed by Tim Burton, the spooky horror is carried substantially by Keaton with his manic performance until the very end.

Four Weddings and a Funeral(1994)

Don’t mistake it with the recent miniseries on Hulu. We are definitely talking about the classic one. This romantic comedy is so good that you’ll be amazed to know that it is directed by the same person who helmed the Harry Potter and Goblet of Fire movie. Starring Hugh Grant, Four Weddings and a Funeral  tells the story of Charlie, who is uncomfortably busy with four weddings and a funeral. However, among the weirdly big circle of friends present at each event, Charlie keeps on encountering the beautiful American Carrie, played by Andie McDoweel.

Boomerang (1992)

The king of comedy, Eddie Murphy is an executive at an advertising firm and leads a highly exciting life as a professional and a philanderer. This is until his new female boss (Robin Givens) with a similar personality only amplified in magnitude gives him a taste of his own medicine and there begins his comeuppance. Set in the backdrop of a misogynistic culture of corporate, the filmmaker conveys the message of love and Karma in the vein of what can be viewed as a sophisticated parody.

Secretary (2002)

Oh, wait! Does the plot sound familiar to you? It is because this movie is everything 50 Shades of Grey tried to be- even down to the protagonist with ‘Grey’ as the second name.

New Live-Action ‘Mulan’ Movie: Disney’s Feminist Princess

by Kaylen Summers

Disney’s live-action retelling of its classic animated movies continues with the latest addition Mulan. The movie is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a brave warrior woman who takes her father’s place in the army to fight against the invading Northern Forces.

Disney’s princesses had always been the epitome of gender stereotyping. Over the years, this was criticized severely by many and Disney clearly didn’t wanted to address serious issues like gender politics in their narratives. It is in this light that we should understand that the recent retellings are not just about taking us down the nostalgia lane or rendering a perfect live-action remake of their old blockbusters. The movie studio wants to correct their past mistakes and tell stories that are more appealing now. Diversity and representation are trending topics and Disney wants its share of the buzz.

However, no matter how hard they try, it all ends up as desperate gimmicks to get attention. Recent movies like Captial Marvel (Well, you know who owns Marvel, right?) and Aladdin showcased this desperateness. Captain Marvel was introduced as the first solo woman superhero movie of their decade-old cinematic universe. The movie failed tragically in its silly attempt to project the superhero as a feminist symbol. Later, they did the same with the live-action remake of Aladdin. Rather than being just a love interest for Aladdin, the lead female character Jasmine was given a satisfying arc that didn’t stand apart from the main plot. Unfortunately, the movie was still about the male protagonist and his adventures.

With Mulan, Disney might be aiming for a full-on feminist movie. The original 1998 animated flick, directed by Tony Bancroft and Barry Cook, itself was praised by critics for exploring and breaking conventional gender norms. The movie was released during the third wave of feminism and Disney was trying to capitalize on the trend. Despite many positive feminist images and departing from the usual “damsel in distress” storyline, the film had its troubles in staying true to its feminist thoughts.

The recent teaser that dropped appears serious in its content and lacks many Disney elements including their iconic songs. With an Asian woman in the lead role, the scope of the movie widens into territories that were once marginalized.

In the teaser, an elder woman of the family is seen explaining the traits of a ‘good wife’. These traits, of being quiet, composed, graceful, and disciplined, are the ones that Mulan’s family wants to see in her. While these traits are being told one by one, a montage of Mulan dressing up in their traditional female attire and makeup is shown juxtapositioned with her training with her sword.

The original flick may have had a hard time figuring out its feminist agenda. But, the new live-action version might focus more on its feminist core. Rather than Mulan just trying to be a man to break the gender stereotypes, we might get a Mulan who can finally embrace her female qualities to become a superior warrior. After all, the traits for a great warrior are also being quiet, composed, graceful, and disciplined.

7 Best Action Movies to Stream on Netflix

by Kaylen Summers

Netflix has an awesome line up of content ready for you to stream. However, the best of their movies come under the action and adventure category.

But, ‘with great content comes great responsibility’. that is, of course choosing the right movie to watch. But, it is not always that easy to do so. That’s why we are presenting to you the 7 best action films to watch on Netflix. You won’t be feeling bored tonight.

Wheelman (2017)

⌛1h 22min⭐3.2 /5
What good are action movies without heist, car chases and revenge? But, if you take this Netflix original for any other action movie, then you’re mistaken. Wheelman is a well-oiled entry into that oddly specific crime-action genre of ‘Stoic Getaway Driver Caught in a Crime Gone Awry’ films. It’s more like Drive, but only with a sloppy car and more guns.

The Babysitter (2017)

 

 ⌛1h 25m ⭐4/5

Get ready for some wicked, fun action! Since its release in 2017, this horror-comedy has grown its own cult following. The movie has become extremely popular for its disturbing (yet, oddly entertaining) plot. The team behind the movie is even working on a sequel. Deeply stupid most of the time, it is the movie’s sense of finding humor that takes it to the next level.

The Hurricane Heist(2018)

⌛ 103 min ⭐: 3.5/5

The Hurricane Heist is everything that its title says. The movie revolves around a group of thieves who are planning to pull off a massive robbery of the U.S. Treasury’s Mint supply in Alabama. However, what makes this heist nearly impossible is that there is a major category 5 hurricane on the loose, threatening the area. Get you a bowl of popcorn and buckle up! Because there are gonna be guns, cars, money and a monstrous hurricane-all in the same movie.

Game Over, Man! (2018)

⌛1h 40min⭐2.7/5
Not all action movies need to be dark and tough. Some can be downright funny too. This action-comedy is from the creators of Workaholics paying homage to the classic action film Die Hard. If that isn’t enough reason for you to watch this movie, then you are definitely missing out on a hell lot of fun.

Triple Frontier (2019)

⌛ 125 min⭐ 3/5

This heist thriller is a new big-budget action flick from Netflix, starring Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac, Charlie Hunnam, Garrett Hedlund, and Pedro Pascal. These Hollywood hunks play a group of former special-ops bros who reunite to take down an infamous cartel kingpin. However, during their assignment, they steal his profits, pushing them into a plot that is sure to keep you on the edge of your seats. If you are a fan of multiple plot twists and some high stakes action, then this one is for you.

Snatch (2000)

⌛103 min⭐ 4.3/5

Made in his iconic film making style, this crime comedy from Guy Ritchie is a fun British jaunt starring Brad Pitt and Jason Statham. While one part of the plot follows the diamond thief Benicio del Toro, the other part is about the small-time boxing promoter played by Statham. del Toro is looking to sell his stolen goods to some double-crossing gangsters. On the other hand, Statham is on the run from a ruthless drug lord who loves to torture.

Outlaw King (2018)

⌛2h 2min⭐3.45/5
 Well, technically this is a period movie. But, for anyone who is missing out on the GOT-style bloody action, this one is your pick. Outlaw King has everything from oceans of mud, truckloads of guts and misty, unconsidered nationalism. So what are you waiting for?!

Spectral (2016)

⌛1h 49min ⭐3.15/5

Ready for some military level action. This movie has the military fight alien invasion. What more can we, sci-fi fans ask for?! A European city has been taken over by some supernatural being. Now, it is the mission of a special-ops team to destroy the creature and save the day.

‘Never Rarely Sometimes Always’ Review

by Emily Keen

Unwed teenage mothers fighting for the life of their unborn child against the impositions and pressures of the society is a narrative extensively exhausted in movies. NRSA breaks the pattern and brings us a girl who is not ready to be a mother. With no support from an adult, it is just her and her high school best friend by her side, battling the stringent laws of abortion in America.

Since the state of Pennsylvania won’t let her abort the child without the consent of a parent, she travels to New York in the hope of facing fewer hindrances while going about the process. Eventually, we all know that won’t be the case.

NRSA finds its title from a heart-wrenching sequence in the film where Autumn is made to answer a questionnaire about her sex life at a clinic. The questions are along the lines of – Has your partner refused to wear a condom/Has your partner made you have sex against your will? And options that follow are Never, Rarely, Sometimes, Always. You can almost feel the power of her being been crushed to the ground as she answers each question.

The film has limited dialogue and much of the story is expressed through the subtle cues in the actions of the characters. Like when one BFF is seen applying an eye shadow for the other or the scene where Autumn throws up in the bathroom and Skylar just knows what it means.

The brilliance of the fare lies in the mastery with which Eliza Hittman overlays the themes of friendship, social indifference, political system and toxic masculinity over a largely subversive plot. The impact created by the bleak silence in the frames will stay with you even when the film is over. And there is nothing deficient about the character study of two young women who seamlessly carry the film to the end.

Hélène Louvart’ s cinematography elevates the desolate mood with the coarse, gritty frames and while keeping it vibrant at the same time. That helps us feel that hope is not dead after all. Hittman plays to the pulse of her characters and draws up eloquent setpieces even with no monologue. Sidney Flanigan and Talia Ryder are a talent to behold. All in all the film is a poignant tale of teenage pregnancy which has its disconcerting and reassuring moments. We have to give it up to Hittman for creating a melancholic and devastating affair with minimal violence and almost no aggression.

Downhill Review: A Misguided Remake

by Kaylen Summers

Downhill is the American remake of the  2014 award-winning Swedish film, Force Majeure. The original film was brilliant with its character interplay and biting dialogue. Unfortunately, the searing drama and dark humor of the original is lost in the new movie’s Hollywood remake.

For those who were expecting a bog-standard goofy chuckle fest, the movie comes with great disappointment. The movie entirely depends on marital tension and this limits the possibilities of humor.

The premise of the movie is actually great and fairly similar to the original. However, the writing and execution make the movie mediocre. This is surprising, considering the great talents involved both in front and behind the camera.

The screenplay co-written by Oscar-winning directors Nat Faxon and Jim Rash feels average. Their pacing, script, and casting are out of place and even the ninety-minute runtime is not enough to save the movie.

Downhill is about some serious themes. However, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell are better known for their comedies. This contradiction is evident in their performances. The lack of chemistry between the two actors leaves the narrative slow and dry. Both actors seem to be too subdued within the characters.

Though the actors are great, it obvious to feel whether they are fit for the characters. The directors should have given them space for the actors to improvise. For many fans, this will the movie in which Julia-Louis Dreyfus and Will Ferrell are the least humorous.

The best part about the movie is the character of Louis-Dreyfus’ mother. She is the heart of the movie with some sensible pathos and relatable exasperation.  The majestic beauty of the Alps adds strength to the movie. For those who haven’t seen the original, Downhill will not be that much of set back.

Here is the trailer for the movie:

Call of the Wild Review: A Classic Tale Ruined With CGI

by Kaylen Summers

The Call of the Wild is a mesmerizing classic novel from Jack London about a dog’s journey to primal nature. The novel was a thrilling experience for readers with its brave canine protagonist and rich descriptions of the Klondike Gold Rush. However, its latest film adaptation was nothing more than an assemble of overused CGI.

In a time when movies like Lion King (2019) showcased photorealistic CGI, The Call of the Wild’s visual effects are cartoonish and make every critter and setting look fake.

The abnormal mix of CGI  and live-action are supposed to make the adventure more immersive for the movie-goers. Unfortunately, it ends up doing the opposite. The clumsy, cartoonish CGI makes Buck look unrealistic throughout the movie. His facial expression are rendered to look more human-like and you will not feel him like a real dog even for a second of the movie. During the moments when Harrison Ford hugs or physically interact with Buck, we can clearly see him also becoming CGI. The bright lit background setting makes this even clearly visible.

Many of the major action scenes of the movie are also ruined by the CGI visual effects. The scene where Perrault and François are escaping from an avalanche looks more like a video game.

The main characters of the movie are played by Harrison Ford, Bradley Whitford, Omar Sy, and Cara Gee. The performances of the actors feel odd logically from time to time. It is clear that they are on set, in front of a green screen. But, onscreen the actors fail to make us feel that they in a snowstorm, freezing. This adds to the failure of the movie to generate a successful suspension of disbelief.

The makers of the movie are pushing more political correctness and family friendliness into the movie than its source material. The characters are made racially diverse to appeal to a global audience. This is ironic considering the fact that Jack Landon was notoriously racist. The battles between Buck and Spitz are less deadly and the violence in many other scenes are toned down.

The Call of the Wild was one of the definitive novels of American Literature. The movie, however, fails to capture the essence that the classic novel put forward.

Sonic the Hedgehog Review: An Adventure You Don’t Want To Miss

by Kaylen Summers

We all remember the onslaught that happened when the Sonic movie dropped its first trailer. The main criticism was about how the CGI depiction of Sega’s classic video game hero looked.  Surprisingly the makers of the movie took the fans’ reactions seriously and reworked on the character. And we are happy to say that their efforts have paid off well.

With a clever plot, stunning visuals and an amazing performance from the fabulous actor Jim Carrey, the movie is panning out to be a blockbuster at the box office. Being the first surprise hit of this year, the movie is being praised as Jim Carrey’s return to his comic form.

Sonic, as you all know, is a blue hedgehog with unbelievable speed abilities. As his world is being destroyed by a devastating tragedy, he escapes from his planet and reaches ours. However, the danger is still not over. In the new world too, bad guys are after him to steal his powers.

Ben Schwartz voices the beloved hedgehog onscreen, with James Marsden playing the role of Tom Wachowski, the sheriff of Green Hills. Jim Carrey plays the maniacal sociopath, Dr. Ivo Robotnik.

What makes Sonic the Hedgehog stand apart from most of the live-action movies is its script. The movie has a terrific script and its credit goes entirely to screenwriters Patrick Casey and Josh Miller. Rather than sticking on to the Japanese source material or completely revisioning the plot, the writers infused their creativity to give out the best of both world

Sonic is established as a compelling character who is desperately lonely. He is still a boy who wants to understand more about humans, make friends and have lots of fun. This makes the character more endearing to the audience. The amazing acting by James Marsden makes the anthropomorphic, supersonic, CGI hedgehog more convincing and sells the relationship between the two characters even further.

Jim Carrey’s performance as the hysterical and threatening Dr. Robotnik is the main highlight of the movie. The actor has never been this funny since Dumb and Dumber. He steals the show fare and square. Anyone else as this diabolical, but the knockdown funny character would have looked foolish. But, Carrey’s brilliance made the character unique and acceptable.

Among so many movies with more CGI than creativity, Sonic the Hedgehog remains a well-balanced fusion of both. The movie is entertaining through out and has the right pace and runtime to keep both adults and kids enthralled.
