Call Me By Your Name

The film is very relatable and real owing to its honesty of emotions and that makes it a very fulfilling watch.

Little Women

Adapted time and again in different versions, there is no other story more coming of age than Little Women, a novel by Louisa May Alcott.

Rebel Without A Cause

This is a film that explores the lives of suburban middle-class teenagers.

Soul Review: About Afterlife and Pixar’s First Black Lead

by Kaylen Summers

When it comes to animation greatness, Pixar wins without a doubt. Their creativeness and uplifting store telling can be experienced to its finest with their new movie Soul. The movie revolves around a jazz musician who dies unexpectedly and has to navigate through the afterlife. Even while discussing something dark and grimy, the makers have put all their efforts into making it not appear depressing or melodramatic. It is evident that they have succeeded in it too.

Soul delivers a truly positive message that can uplift anyone- that too in a year in which we had to face a lot of darkness and tragedy. It teaches us that life is a colorful blend of failures and rising up from them. These ups and downs are the things that make human existence a wonderful experience that deserved to treasured.

The lead actor of the story is Joe Gardner, who is voiced by the beloved actor Jamie Foxx. Joe is a jazz pianist living in New York City and works as a part-time middle school music teacher. His love for music is the reason why he took up such a career. However, it was not much of a paying career as he needed.  Things finally took a positive turn for him when he was offered a full-time position at the school. It meant job security and actual benefits for him. All his struggles are finally paying off when his former student calls him and tells him about an audition with Dorothea Williams, a famous jazz saxophonist. Unfortunately, his luck ran out just then and he falls into a hole on the roadside. Joe wakes up in a space escalator heading towards his place in the afterlife. However, Joe doesn’t want to die at a moment when everything was finally working out for him. He wants to go back to earth to his body. He meets the unborn souls and the troublesome “22”. Together, they embark on a hilarious spiritual and physical journey that takes them through different levels of existence.

What makes Soul unique is how it skilfully handles the concept of death. Pete Docter, the director, and co-writer of the movie doesn’t want the audience to equate death with fear. It is inevitable and the natural end for life.  Joe is in need of finding a way back into his physical form or life, while 22 believes that life is overrated and being born into Earth means going through endless sufferings. The movie is the journey is these two characters, as they send on to find two opposite meanings and ending up realizing that what they were looking for is ultimately the same- the meaning of life. Pixar has crafted such a complex, existential, and great philosophical thought into a story that even the little ones will easily understand. That deserves more than all the credits that need.

Soul is also an important Pixar movie for introducing the first Black lead in a movie from the studios. Even though many consider this a huge leap from the studio, there are others who think differently. Some critics see Joe’s sacrifice for a white woman to live as a racist subtext. However, the movie does show that Joe’s good deed earning him a second chance for life. So, this claim seems so insignificant.

Soul is now available for streaming on Disney+

10 Best Leonardo DiCaprio Movies of All Time

by Kaylen Summers

Leonardo DiCaprio needs no introduction to moviegoers. He is an actor who has surpassed his own limits of excellence and has emerged as one of the most timeless performers in contemporary cinema. Here are some of his best performances that you must not miss:

Titanic

It is difficult to mention Leonardo DiCaprio without mentioning Titanic. Iconic by all means, this is a film that is etched in the minds and hearts of film lovers all over the world. Leonardo plays Jack, a young man of modest means who falls in love with Rose, an aristocratic woman he meets on a cruise. He shines as Jack, portraying the many emotions of a young man hopelessly in love with ease. His performance is one of the key elements that makes this love story work. This is definitely an unforgettable performance from the actor.

The Great Gatsby

Based on Scott Fitzgerald’s famous novel of the same title, this is the story of Gatsby, a millionaire hopelessly in love. The novel is almost unfilmable owing to its vastness and complexities. The film tries hard to capture the essence of the story, and its biggest advantage is DiCaprio’s charming presence. He performs incredibly well, owning each scene with a subtle sharpness. If it was not for his committed performance, the film would have been a drag.

Shutter Island

This is one of the most deeply haunting psychological thrillers of all time. DiCaprio plays an investigator looking into the case of a missing inmate at an obscure, island asylum. As he delves deeper into the problem, he realizes that the limits of his own sanity are being tested. This is a film that brings out the range and power of DiCaprio’s mettle as an actor. He renders the character with such finesse that we get drawn into the web of illusions in the story with no barriers to the imagination. This is definitely one of his career’s defining roles, to not be missed.

The Wolf Of Wall Street

Leonardo delivers one of his best performances in this film as a penny-stock kingpin and financial huckster. The film depicts the ups and downs of the stockbroker world and DiCaprio fits in like the perfect puzzle piece. His vivacious energy drives the scenes and brings zest to the film that is its core strength. It is as if the director just put him in front of the camera and watched him go at it full throttle. The performance is full of life and absolutely memorable.

Revolutionary Road

This is the story of a couple struggling to save their marriage as they also plan to relocate to Paris. An unexpected pregnancy foils their plans and also puts their efforts at stake. DiCaprio plays the character of a conflicted, torn young husband with utmost commitment. His vulnerability on screen is so moving that it is hard to forget that you are witnessing a film, and nor listening on a real-life story of someone you know. The film also stars Kate Winslet, an actor DiCaprio shares amazing chemistry with.

Django Unchained

DiCaprio stuns in this Tarantino film as a snarky, ruthless slave-owner. Delivering one of his best, defining performances, he brings to the character a realness that makes you want to hate him while also making you curious about the ways in which his cruel, depraved mind works. His portrayal of a grey, dark character as this one with such convincing mannerisms is testimony to the fact that he is an actor who can traverse all emotions with absolute efficiency.

Catch Me If You Can

This is the story of a con man and an officer who is on the run to track him down. DiCaprio and Tom Hanks respectively handle the roles and DiCaprio make the film a fun, engaging watch with his nonchalance as the witty con man. He is so lovable in the film with his playful charm that you want him to win, though you know full well that he is not supposed to! Watch this film to be mesmerized by the ease of this actor yet another time.

The Departed

This is a tight crime thriller by Martin Scorsese with DiCaprio playing a police officer who infiltrates the mob. His performance is grounded, full of despair and depth that it gives a very surreal elevation to this rouge film. Elements of crime, desperation, identity, and finding purpose come together beautifully in this racy film which is lifted another notch by DiCaprio’s solid performance. He breathes life and vigor into the film which becomes an experience of a lifetime owing to his presence.

Inception

In this mind-bending science fiction thriller by Christopher Nolan, DiCaprio plays a thief who extracts vital information from his targets by entering into their subconscious. He makes an almost unbelievable plot tangible, relatable, and human. His performance breaks the barriers of the dystopian plot and makes you feel as if the incidents are plausible, and not far from reality. This is a rare quality of an actor, and DiCaprio aces his job with absolute precision.

The Revenant

In this adventure film, DiCaprio plays a frontiersman who is left behind by his crew after a traumatic attack by a bear. He fights against the weather, his own body and mind to get back at the crew member who betrayed him. This is a film that is phenomenal by all means. DiCaprio delivered the performance of his lifetime which finally won him an Oscar along with almost every other award in that year. If there is one film you want to watch to really get the quintessence of DiCaprio as a performer, it is this one. Watch it to be amazed by how this actor never ceases to blow our minds.

10 Bad Movies That Made 2020 Worse.

by Kaylen Summers

2020 was a year when the world needed all the good art that can possibly be out there. But there were some really bad films that made the year even worse. Here is a list of some of the worst films of 2020 based on viewer reviews:

Reality Queen

This is the story of an heiress who is struggling to gain back her fame after being ousted from the limelight by three sisters who resemble the Kardashian siblings. The film is among one of the worst-rated releases of 2020. Viewers claim it to be loosely written, flimsy, and packed with below-average performances that are totally not worth your time.

The Last Days of American Crime

Set against a heist plan by two men and a woman, this is a film that drags on without any real purpose insight. The film tries to bite off more than it can chew and falls flat on its face. The plot has the possibility to be a great action thriller but it is foiled by a lousy screenplay that makes it pointless to watch. Viewers have given the film less than 2 stars on average and it looks like a waste of energy to us.

Buddy Games

It is 2021 already and toxic masculinity has not ceased to take center stage in films! This is a classic boys trip film where a group of buddies reunites to have fun and end up resolving their issues and life crisis. The film is not bad in execution or performance, but it is the content and tone that make it extremely unacceptable in many moments. In this day and age, frat clubs of boys where anti-female humor is encouraged and celebrated cannot be applauded because it is high time we call such content out.

The Tax Collector

This is an action thriller about a local crime lord’s tax collector. He finds himself and his family in danger when a long lost enemy of his boss turns up. The film has all the elements that would make a really amazing thriller. But the plot gets haphazard in its execution and there is nothing much to look forward to. Despite the setting and the dedicated performances of the actors, the film fails to keep the interest of the viewer intact.

Survive The Night

This is a thriller in which a trauma surgeon is forced to operate on a wounded gunman who holds him and his family hostage. It is the story of crime, family problems, and professional ego. But the execution makes it one of the most disengaging films to watch. The screenplay is too loose for a film of this genre. The thrills are very predictable and there is not intrigue to the story after a few minutes into it.

Shortcut

A film about five teenagers who get terrorized by a mysterious creature, this is a film that attempts to chronicle the adventures and horror that follow their journey. But we all know that the most crucial element of a good horror thriller is intrigue. It is also what the film fails to get right. Predictable plot points dampen the experience and make it extremely hard to hold attention to the film. There is nothing more uninteresting than to watch a horror film that does not captivate the focus of the viewer.

Songbird

Set against the futuristic scenario where the Covid virus mutates into a deadly strain, this is a film that follows a woman in quarantine and attempts to save her before the virus gets the better of her. It is a tricky plot because we already have our information on the virus intact and to make us feel invested without creating any kind of logical pitfalls is a difficult task that the film fails to execute. It has all the elements of a good medical thriller but the writing falls short of creating curiosity and holding the storyline together.

Endless

Endless is a story of two high school sweethearts who are madly in love. They are separated by a tragic car accident leaving them devastated. The film starts off as a sweet romance but fails to deliver and keep up with the initial expectations it sets. It is a disappointment to watch the film after being set to a good start. The romance fizzles out and later on, it feels as though the story drags on, without any specific purpose.

After We Collided

Sequel to the 2016 film After, this is a film that fails to rise up to the expectations of the original. The storyline is haphazard and takes its own course after a point. The performances also are quite weak, making the experience uninteresting. The film is packed with very cliché young adult tropes. Young love has to be depicted very carefully or it will become laughable. What happens with this film as well. The screenplay could have been worked better and made more engaging.

Artemis Fowl

This is the story of a 12-year-old boy who attempts to find his missing father. He comes across a world of fairies and soon gets entangled in a difficult battle with them. The film loses its essence in world-building. The most important thing about fantasizes is to build a world convincingly. This film falters in that department. The premise is not very convincing owing to the problems in the execution. A beautiful story with immense potential for fantabulous output is foiled by writing that does not hold either attention or interest.

The most prominent name associated with Japanese cinema is that of Akira Kurosawa. He is a master director who has made films that the world still is in awe of.

Deep in essence and thought, this is a film that will take you on a journey of introspection and self-awareness.

Seven Samurai

This is yet another film by Akira Kurosawa which can be called his magnum opus. Seven Samurai maps the warriors of Japan in a thrilling, action filled yet deeply philosophical narrative. It remains as one of the most brilliant films made in the history of world cinema.

Fireworks

Fireworks is a film that marked the revival of contemporary Japanese film making. It follows the journey of a cop whose daughter dies in a mishap and wife battles a terminal illness. Acclaimed critical in international film circles, Fireworks put Japanese cinema on the map of world cinema once again with its deeply introspective narrative and craft.

Battle Royale

Battle Royale is a Japanese cult classic must watch film for all movie buffs. Quite similar to The Hunger Games, this is a story of a bunch teenagers and young-adults who fight to death in a game that will leave only a single winner in the end. This movie is bolder, deeper and better than The Hunger Games, with a lot of enjoyable dark humour and thrill.

Spirited Away

Fans of animated films are in for a treat. Spirited Away is a beautiful animated fantasy thriller written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki.

Watch this film if you like cinema that is entertaining and thought-provoking at the same time.

Departures

The first Japanese winner of the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, Departures follows a cellist who takes a job preparing the dead for funerals. Loosely based on Shinmon Aoki’s Coffinman: The Journal of a Buddhist Mortician, the film presents the rituals surrounding death and explores the feelings induced by them.

Nobody Knows

Nobody Knows tells the story of four children aged between five and twelve years old. They are half-siblings, with each of them having different fathers. Because the three youngest children are in the apartment illegally without the landlord’s knowledge or permission, they cannot go outside or be seen in the apartment, and they do not attend school. Their mother leaves them alone for weeks, and finally does not return.  Forced overtime to survive on their own, they can only rely on each other to face the multiple challenges in front of them.

Harakiri

Harakiri is a period film set in the 1600s. It tells the story of Hanshirō Tsugumo, a warrior without a lord. It documents the traditions amongst samurai warriors, their means for survival, war and life. This is the perfect watch for history lovers and lovers of period dramas with an immersive narrative.

Our Little Sister

If you love movies and are serious about the films that you choose to watch, then the unfortunate truth is that the list is long and ever-expanding. Luckily, we have made a shortlist of movies that you might enjoy watching.

Check out this list and start watching them now.

The Bicycle Thieves

There is no better Italian neorealist movie to be ever made than The Bicycle Thieves.  The movie is a classic for its truest portrayal of the world. Set in a world left behind by World War II, the movie is about a poor family man who pawns their bedsheets to buy a bicycle to get a job. The movie was shot in real locations with non-professional actors due to the economic conditions of the time. This resulting in giving a realistic portrayal of the economical conditions of the working class during that time.

M

This one is the first feature from Fritz Lang with sound. The movie is an everlasting example of a technically accomplished sound film and is one of the greatest worldwide hits of all time. The movie tells the story of a psychologically ill child murderer trying to elude the police as they are busy rounding up every other criminal in the city. The character is played by Peter Lorre and is considered as his breakthrough performance. With deep dark shadows of the black and white frames and fluid camera moments, the movie is a must-watch for all movie lovers out there.

The Music Room

Coming from Indian cinema, Satyajit Ray is one of the most celebrated moviemakers in the world. His most marveled work is the Apu trilogy. However, after completing the first two movies of the trilogy, the director managed to make a movie that is as critically acclaimed as his other works- The Music Room. The story revolves around a middle-aged aristocrat in India, named Huzar Biswambair Roy. He is flipping slowly into poverty, but, is not willing to compromise on his social status or heritage. He throws lavish parties in his mansion’s music room and spending his family’s last pennies on it.

La Grande Illusion

This war movie is one of the best war movies made and stands out as a humanistic marvel of poetic realism in cinema. Set in the time of World War I, the story is about two french men- one is an aristocrat and the other is a working-class man. When the German aristocratic aviator shot down their plane, the two survives. The German aristocrat discovers that he shares a mutual acquaintance with the French aristocrat, he invites the survivors for a lunch with him, and from there to a POW camp.

Tokyo Story

Japanese director Yasujirô Ozu’s crowning achievement, Tokyo Story, is a simple story about an elderly couple traveling to meet their children working and living in the capital city of Tokyo. However, when they reached there, they started to realize that their children had no time to spend with them. The movie is a gripping realization of modern urbanization and the sudden shift in values after the war.  The quiet and silent frames not only set the languid pace of the movie but also, depict the emotions and fate they are going through.

Citizen Kane

If you are looking for the best film ever made, then look no further. It is Citizen Kane. Everything from cinematography to editing that you know about modern cinema owes a lot to this movie. Orson Welles depicting the mad publishing billionaire redefined the cinema and its making forever. It was the life story of publishing scion William Randolph Hearst that inspired him for this. No true movie fan will ever leave this movie unwatched, and not once.

The Red and the White

The Hungarian movie from director Miklos Janscó is a startling war film critiquing the violence that took place during the time of the Russian Civil War. Set in the period around 1919, the Montage-era movies tell the story of the barbaric deeds that took many lives between the Communist Reds and the Tsarist Whites.  Deviating from the normal revolutionary formula, the director focuses more on the cruelty of war and the lives affected by it. However, the movie itself is revolutionary for not following the war-film conventions.

Memories of Underdevelopment

This pseudo-documentary directed by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea is a perfect example of the thunderous voice that the Latin American “Boom” of literature had during the time. Taking place in post-revolution Havana, the film follows a writer named Sergio. His ex-wife and parents are gone to Miami and he is trying to write a memoir about life after the Revolution, during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Memories of Underdevelopment is an underseen gem belonging to the many cinematic movements including Cine Libre, Imperfect Cinema, and Third Cinema.

Bill & Ted Face the Music Review: A Sweet Adventure And The Perfect Send-Off

by Kaylen Summers

Fans of the time-traveling, universe saving, cult classic duo Bill and Ted were awe-struck to hear that there was a third installment coming their way. Part of it was mostly for seeing everyone’s favorite Keanu Reeves reprising the role in the goofy, sci-fi comedy after almost two decades. Surely his reputation and fan following has increased over time. However, he took up the role once again to give the trilogy and character a wonderful climax.

Making a new installment for a major movie from the past era has always ended up disastrous for Hollywood. Take 2016’s Ghostbusters, Ocean’s 8 (2017), and every Terminator movie after Judgement day for example. These studios sure know how to take good, successful franchises from the last decade and ruin it for the entire fans and movie-lovers. Fortunately, this time we can happily say that Bill and Ted Face The Music is a bright exception in the long streak of disappointments.

Bill & Ted Face The Music mainly revolves around one thing- the entire space-time continuum is about to implode in on itself and ‘The Great One’ must produce a singular piece of music that can save ‘reality as we know it’. It is the single, core concept of the movie plot. However, with some time-traveling shenanigans and slow-paced humor, the movie is elevated to look and feel like the true continuation of the franchise. To put it a single sentence- they nailed it!

More than just a continuation of their out-of-the-world adventures, the movie is more of a final showdown that eventually lets the beloved characters have the farewell they deserve. Skillfully combining enough callbacks and jokes to both Excellent Adventure and Bogus Journey, it succeeds in bringing something fresh and new to the table. While Excellent Adventure was about time traveling and Bogus Journey was about the afterlife, Face The Music has no problem in combining parts from the two into a nicely crafted storyline.

Bill and Ted are not young and adventurous. They have their families. The movie admits that and does justice to the canon by telling the story apt for our heroes at their age.  It felt as if they wanted to take the long time gap on purpose.

[Spoilers ahead] The movie ends with Bill and Ted realizing that they are no longer the chosen ones. It was all meant for their two daughters. Thus giving us some home that there is a chance for some spin-offs in the future.

Bill and Ted Face the Music may not be the perfect movie. Sure, it may feel scrappy at times, but the positiveness, humor, and the extreme likeness that it evokes in the viewers are worth mentioning. There is no other way better than this to say goodbye to the Wyld Stallyns.

avatar 2 movie stills

Originally intended to be released on December 17, 2021, Avatar was set to release every other December from then. However, the pandemic has delayed the shoots, and the makers of the movie have decided that it is better to skip this year and release the movie one year later. The first Avatar movie was released in 2009 and was a huge blockbuster. With the studios looking to build a franchise, fans of the movie are sure to get an epic adventure on Pandora.

The Batman

One of the other major movie productions that got delayed due to the pandemic was Matt Reeves’s upcoming Batman movie starring Robert Pattinson. The movie was supposed to be released on  June 25, 2021. Unfortunately, production delays and Pattinson getting affected by Covid19 has moved the movie release to March 4, 2022.

Black Widow

 Disney tried its luck by releasing its delayed movies on its streaming platform and failed miserably. Hopefully, they are not trying to do the same with Marvel’s Black Widow. The movie was intended to be a summer tentpole releasing in May 2020. With the theatres closed across the globe, the movie is moved to May of next year along with other Phase 4 movies from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Candyman

Fans of the cult classic slasher movie were excited to hear that a new installment of the franchise was coming their way. Unfortunately, it looks like they have to wait even further as the studio decided to keep the movie on the shelves till 2021. The exact date is yet to be decided. Till then we will not be hearing much about the movie.

Dune

The 1984 movie Dune was a visual extravagance in concept, visuals, and performance. When the studios decided to remake the film into a new, grander version, we all were expecting nothing less. Now, the studio has announced that it will be shifting its release date from December of 2020 to October of 2021.

Free Guy

Ryan Reynolds is known for his hilarious moments both on-screen and off-screen. When the trailer for his new movie Free Guy was released, fans were more than excited for the movie. Initially agreed to be released on July 3, 2020, the action-packed CGI-heavy flick is now shifted to December 2020. 

Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Another classic franchise that is getting a modern-day sequel is the fan-favorite Ghostbusters. Though an all-female version of the movie was released earlier, it was not accepted well by the audience. This installment, however, is said to be a direct sequel and was expected to release on July 10, 2020. The movie is now rescheduled for a  March 2021 release.

No Time to Die

Perhaps the most anticipated movie to have postponed due the pandemic is none other than No Time to Die, adding another chapter to the James Bond movie franchise, this one will mark the last time we will see Daniel Crag as the 007. With more than enough trailers released for the movie, fans were all set to see the movie in April 2020. Now, they will have to wait until April 2021 to watch the movie.

7 Best Netflix Family Movies To Watch With Your Kids

by Kaylen Summers

Many of the streaming originals may not be that fun to watch with your family or kids. Luckily, Netflix is focusing more on kids-friendly content that is ideal for viewing as a family. Here are some of the best from such family movies streaming on Netflix.

Hugo

Martin Scorsese making a kids movie can feel a little out of place. However, he has made one of the most noteworthy movies from the list- Hugo. Based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret, the legendary director has built a memorable world around a young orphaned boy who is living alone in a railway station in Paris.

Ralph Breaks the Internet

If you have already seen Wreck-It Ralph, then the sequel installment for the movie is one that you don’t want to miss. While Ralph’s first outing was grounded in the world of arcade games, the new adventure takes them to the world of the internet and its endless possibilities. Filled with fun-filled moments and special appearances from other Disney-owned properties like Star Wars and Disney Princess, the movie also focuses on realistic issues like toxic masculinity and online culture.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Spider-man is a superhero for all ages. Fans were really not happy with how the amazing Spider-man movies turned out to be. However, when they brought Miles Morales and the spider-verse to the table, it was more than just excitement for the fans. Seeing different ‘Spider-people’ (and ham) from parallel universes crossing over to save the multiverse is an epic sight worth watching.

The Croods

This comedy animated movie about a caveman family trying to find a place in the changing world is just the right one to refresh your family. The prehistoric adventure has led Grug and his family into unfamiliar terrain and a young boy appears to help them find a new shelter. However, Grug is having a hard time following his lead. With the studio, looking to release a sequel late this year, now is actually the perfect time to watch this fun movie.

The Main Event

Fan of WWE? Then the good news is that the wrestling entertainment roster is teaming up with Netflix to bring their original movies to the platform. One such movie is the recently released The Main Event. The movie is about an 11-year-old young boy who is obsessed with WWE. He discovers a magical mask that lets him.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World

Many of you guys may not be knowing about the fourth installment from the Spy Kids franchise. Since the third 3D version of the movie was too much for the audiences, it was a surprise that the studio went for another movie. However, this time it is more of a rebooted version with new characters. Jessica Alba plays the role of a stepmother to two children and is a former ex-agent.

Walk. Ride. Rodeo.

Based on a real-life survival story, this amazing tale is one that is worth sharing with your kids. Amberley Snyder is a nationally ranked barrel racer.

‘The Devil All the Time’ Review: Tom Holland Redefines Himself As An Actor

by Kaylen Summers

Netflix’s newest entry into the thrillers catalog is powerful, yet the disturbing blend of faith, crime, and violence. Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Donald Ray Pollock, The Devil All the Time unfolds a sprawling story that is set across generations, families, and two wars. The movie lasts for more than 2 hours and there is a large ensemble of characters that you will eventually lose track off. With such an elaborate set of events and characters, it would have been wiser for Netflix to run it as a mini-series than a movie.

The slow-burning, dark thriller opens with Willard Russell’s (Bill Skarsgard) return back to his home after the traumatic War in the Pacific. Even though he tries to make a family, it becomes a failure. His wife Charlotte (Haley Bennett) dies after falling to illness and Russell eventually ends his life by committing suicide. This leaves his son Arvin (Tom Holland) to live the life of an orphan in a godless land. He is surrounded by murders, serial killers, and more awful men who believe that God is making them do it. It was in his teenage years that an opportunistic and sleazy preacher (Robert Pattinson) arrives, setting in motion some of the most gruesome tragedies of Alvin’s life. 

God, war, and the innately violent nature of humans creates the main core of the story. Even though the movie uses the novel’s texture to tell this story, it fails to capture its depths. There are many instances where it feels like the characters can engage with each other only through violence. This pretext of violence resists the depth that the movie desperately needs. Instead of focusing on how violence has impacted multiple generations of Americans, it felt more like a voyeuristic exercise on heinous crimes.

The performances by actors are highly commendable. Tom Holland miles away from his Marvel appearance and proves that range is much greater than anyone would have expected. Robert Pattinson looks comfortable in his portrayal of the corrupt preacher. 

Even though it fails to include noteworthy black or brown faces, like many other midwestern period pieces before it, The Devil All the Time stands strong for the brutal portrayal of violence and religion in the heart of the country. Most of the movie may turn out to be vicious and dark for many viewers, However, its truthfulness to the darkest aspects of human behavior and the brilliant, engaging performances from the actors makes this movie rewarding.

7 Most Underrated Movies of 2020 (So Far)

by Kaylen Summers

With the pandemic and the theatres closed down, it is easy to miss out on some of the hidden gems. These movies may not have a star-studded cast or major studio support, they are masterpieces when it comes to the content and presentation. Luckily, we have made a list of best-underrated movies released so far.

The Assistant

From the first view, it is understandable that this movie is inspired by the events that happened around the Weinstein Company. The movie revolves around a low-level employee of a New York-based film studio, who is tasked with taking calls, making copies, and scrubbing bodily fluids out of her boss’s office room couch. Kitty Green directed and scripted the movie to be a truthful portrayal of a toxic workplace and how the system continues to allow its existence.

Guns Akimbo

This movie may not be what you want it to be. But, if you are okay to accept it, then it is sure to be entertaining. After the Harry Potter movies, Daniel Radcliffe is determined to establish himself as a serious actor by taking up characters far away from Hogwarts. His latest attempt is in Guns Akimbo in which the actor is forced into a fight-to-death match called Skizm. With his hands literally screwed to guns, this black comedy is filled with ridiculous gunfights and car chases.

The Photograph

We know how love-dramas work. A couple will be deeply in love with each other. Something will come in between them and lead to a rough patch. The Photograph takes careful steps to avoid the cliches and gives a refreshing new perspective to romantic dramas. Mae is one of the central characters whose mother is a famous photographer. A love affair is born when she meets Micheal who is a journalist doing a story on her mother. 

Color Out of Space

Nicolas Cage is known for his long list of flops. So, finding an underrated movie from it can be challenging. However, Color Out of Space is worth mentioning for the novelty in the concept it presents. The movie is based on the 1927 short story by H.P. Lovecraft and tells the story of the Gardner family who has moved to the idyllic woods of Massachusetts. As each of the members of the family is going through their own personal trauma, a meteorite falls nearby and changes their lives and surroundings.

Ordinary Love

This movie is a perfect example to show that you don’t need dramatic music or long emotional dialogues. Starring Liam Nesson and Lesley Manville, Ordinary Love is about a couple in their 60’s.  Lesley Manville’s character finds a lump on one of her breasts and goes through diagnostic procedures and surgeries. Though not much is shared about the characters, we are instantly connected with the characters and their strong, subtle love for each other. 

Swallow

If you are a fan of psychological thrillers, then this bizarre tale is sure to get your attention. The story has Hunter as the central character who is married into a wealthy family. Over the course of time, she gets the fixation to swallow sharp inanimate objects. This becomes, even more, deadlier when it is revealed that she is pregnant. There is no doubt that this movie is disturbing and truly difficult to watch. However, its subtext about women losing their power over themselves and becoming only a physical agency is bold and worth mentioning.

Horse Girl

The Netflix movie has Alison Brie playing the role of the protagonist who loves horses. Well, that is the only real thing you will get from this movie. From there, the movie is a surreal journey through the mental breakdown of a woman. Fun fact is that Horse Girl co-written by Brie herself, being inspired by her family history of mental illness. Whatever the muse may be, the movie is a surprising blend of fantasy and reality that is sure to be both entertaining and disorienting at the same time.

‘Tenet’ Review: Watch It Only If You Are A Nolan Fan

by Kaylen Summers

It seems like Christopher Nolan’s obsession with the space-time continuum is not going to end any time soon. His new movie Tenet proves it again. Fortunately, even if you can’t figure out all the sci-fi concepts, the slick visual effects and strong lead performances can help you stay hooked to the movie to some extent.

There is no doubt that Tenet is action-packed sci-fi eye-candy. However, the tedious complexity of how the plot has been narrated can make any normal moviegoer scratch their heads. If you have a Ph.D. in quantum physics and if you are able to remove all the constant and heavy barrage of confusing reveals, then you will find that the center plot of the movie is not as complicated as you have expected. In fact, some might even find it to be similar to the 1994 Sci-fi movie Time Cop.

Spoilers ahead!

For most of the folks who still haven’t got the faintest idea about what the movie is actually about, then let us break down the plot into a simpler form. A Russian bad guy possesses the technological ability to travel back and forth in time. In Nolan’s terminology, this is known as ‘temporal inversion’.  The Protagonist is tasked with the top-secret mission to stop them by using the same technology- reversing time. Helping him in the mission is another spy from the British Intelligence, played by Rober Pattinson.

The core principle that drives the movie is the concept of time invention. In the future, humans have somehow derived the capability of sending objects back in time. This means that objects like a bullet will come back to the gun instead of going forward. Scratching your heads already?! There is more. After almost half of the movie, the protagonist is sent back in time to relive the even happened in the first half in reverse. The ending, like every other Nolan movie, can leave you confused and thinking.

Nolan’s movies are always critically remarked for its inability to convey human emotions. The director finds more perfection in building dramatic structures and scientific explanations than exploring the complexities of human life. This downside is evident in Tenet as well. However, the director’s ability to pick up a genre and reinvent it is something that was always appreciated. Tenet was his take on spy movies, but it fails to stand out and instead, ends up as an elaborated show of gimmicks.

6 Awesome Movies Starring ‘The Friends’ Cast

by Kaylen Summers

We all love the famous sitcom and its beloved cast members both on-screen and off-screen. However, only a few know that the actors have given some memorable performances in other movies as well. Here is a list of some of the best movies starring “The Friends” cast.

Courtney Cox in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

Receiving great response from the audiences,  Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is the movie that shot Jim Carrey into the stardom and success that we know him today. Surprisingly, the movie also features one of the fan-favorite stars from the Friends show- Courtney Cox. The actress plays the role of Melissa Robinson, a publicist who hires Carrey’s character to find her team’s Dolphin mascot.

Matt LeBlanc in Charlie’s Angels 

Lady’s man Joey finally met his angels in the movie Charlie’s Angels. Though in a supporting role, actor Matt LeBlanc appears in the 2000 Charlie’s  Angels reboot and its sequel later in 2003. LeBlanc appears in a cameo as Liu’s action star boyfriend and gives us fans one of the funniest moments in the whole cinema. It is a shame that he never got many other movies to be added to his filmography.

Jennifer Aniston  in Horrible Bosses

There is no doubt that on who go it big into Hollywood was one other than Jennifer Aniston. The actress went on to appear in many movies after the success of the show, that too in main roles. One of her memorable appearances is in the R-rated comedy movie, Horrible Bosses. The actress plays the role of a sexual harasser boss named Dr. Julia Harris in the movie.

David Schwimmer in Big Nothing

This is one movie that not many might not have heard of. Starring David Schwimmer, the movie is a black comedy that was released in 2006. Schwimmer plays the role of a strung-out former teacher who teams up with his demented old pal to get rich quick through a blackmail scheme. Playing the actor’s friend in the movie is none other than Simon Pegg.

Lisa Kudrow in Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion

It is tough to picture Lisa Kudrow in a role other than Pheobe. The actress has made an everlasting impression in our hearts. However, that didn’t stop Kudrow from trying out new characters in movies. In the solid-gold cult classic comedy Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion, she plays the character of Mira Sorvino. Kudrow brilliantly balances shameless goofiness and sentimentality with the same charm as we all know her.

Matthew Perry in The Whole Nine Yards

Finding movies of Matthew Perry can be a tough job than you think. The actor did only a few performances after Friends and one among them is in The Whole Nine Yards. The 2000’s dark crime comedy movie has to pair up with none other than Bruce Willis. Perry also had a short-yet-memorable appearance in 2009’s body-swap comedy 17 Again.

5 Great LGBTQ Movies To Stream Online

by Kaylen Summers

Even before the industry was taken over by the ‘woke’

Bound (1996)

We know the Wachowskis for their cult-classic work Matrix. However, before their big-budget outing, their debut movie was centered around lesbian romance and the major studios were not okay with the idea. Thus the siblings had to go with a $6 million budget this gem of an LGBTQ cinema.

Boys Don’t Cry (1999)

Before Hollywood movie studios were open to talking about LGBTQ themes, movies like Boys Don’t Cry give audiences a glimpse of what was set for them. 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)

An LGBTQ movie in the 70s may sound crazy and it is for this reason that this movie deserves to be on this list. The movie is an onscreen adaptation of Mart Crowley’s popular 1968 off-Broadway play. A remarkable trivia about this movie is that it was released one year after the Stonewall riots.

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. This awards-season juggernaut is an adaptation of André Aciman’s novel by filmmaker Luca Guadinigno and tells the story about 17-year-old Elio who is on the verge of figuring out his sexuality, developing a crush for the twentysomething Oliver.

The Bonfire of the Vanities (1990)

When Brian De Palma decided to make a movie adaptation of Tom Wolfe’s bestseller, we did not expect it to be a top-to-bottom flop.

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. Suffering from multiple personality disorder, he seems to have no knowledge of the murder committed by his alter ego, Roy. Think you know what the twist is?! Then you are definitely in for a surprise.

Raw (2016)

Raw has a straightforward plot about a French cannibal discovering her sexuality (and taste for human flesh). Apparently, that is as straight forward as it can get, as the movie forwards into a more mythological ending. Surely this one is not for the faint of heart.

Burning (2018)

Jongsu is a deliveryman. One day, he meets Haemi, a girl who once lived in his neighborhood. The two get close to each other. However, after her trip to Africa, things started to be different.
