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.

Is Stan Lee Really a Watcher ?

by Emily Keen

The man behind the genesis of the Marvel universe is no longer amongst us. But for as long as he lived, he made it a point to watch over the superheroes he so dearly created. Stan Lee makes appeared in every Marvel Film until he died before the release of End Game. Be it for a few seconds, he is always there to fill his superhero with some pearls of wisdom.

A bevy of Marvel Superheroes including Hulk, Spider-Man, Doctor Strange and Black Panther are attributed to Stan Lee’s imagination.

Stan Lee’s appearance holds the same significance in the Marvel universe as A113 in Pixar movies.

While some perceive this just like a cameo he bags as a token of gratitude for giving us these superheroes, some fans have a different outlook about why he is there in almost every Marvel movie. The theory suggests that Stan Lee is a Watcher.

For those of you who are unaware, Watchers are alien beings who are handed with the responsibility of keeping a watch over the multiverse.

Over the years, almost every Marvel movie has dropped hints suggesting that there is a possibility that all our superheroes exist in a multiverse.  Let us break it down for you.

Take for instance spiderman. It is obvious that Spiderman looks different in each multiverse. In one universe it is Toby Maguire, in the other he is Andrew Garfield while in the third he looks like Tom Holland. Even the animated venture based on Spiderman comics (Spiderman Into the Spiderverse) was set in a multiverse.

This proves that these parallel universes are a big part of Marvel’s narrative. If this is true, how does Stan Lee manage to appear in every universe? He has a cameo in all Spiderman movies with three different actors portraying the lead. Well that confirms that the watcher theory holds some weight to it.

Stan Lee’s cameo in Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol 2 is somewhat a hint that backs these claims. In James Gunn, directed film, Stan Lee is seen having a conversation with three other watchers sharing with them his experience as a federal expressman. This is him referring to his cameo of a FedEx postman in Captain America: Civil War.

Before this bit appeared in GOTG vol 2, fans believed Stan Lee is Uatu, the watcher. But this hypothesis is contradicted by the MCU wiki page which presents Lee as a “Watcher Informant”. An informant is tasked with passing information to the Watchers. So apparently Lee’s job is only to report to other watchers about his experiences on Earth.

In all probability Gunn himself believes this is true. In almost all movies Stan Lee portrays the same character which is a Watcher Informant.

But here is a twist which somehow puts a kink in the theory. Stan Lee appears in the post-credit scene of Big hero 6. He plays Fred’s dad in the film. Now, Big Hero 6 is a Disney/Marvel movie. The question remains if Big Hero 6 belongs to the Marvel multiverse of Disney multiverse. Since it is animated, it is highly unlikely to be called a part of the Marvel live-action universe. Probably a Marvel animated universe would be a better fit for the film.

Besides we cannot tell for sure if Fred’s dad is a watcher? And considering Big Hero 6 is an animated Disney film based on a Marvel character if Marvel multiverse standards apply to the film is pretty much ambiguous.

For all, we know Stan Lee is still awake in another version of this universe and smiling at this little concoction. How far do you think this theory makes sense? Feel free to add to this theory if you think we passed up on something. Comment below and let us know what you think.

Snowpiercer is a Sequel to Willy Wonka

by Emily Keen

Warning! Not for Killjoys!

This article is strictly for people who have an open mind and find enjoyment in exploring newer perspectives. However quirky they might seem! In this article, we are trying to deconstruct the idea behind the rumors that Snowpiercer is a direct sequel to Willy Wonka and chocolate factory.

At this point you have probably gone through with the stages of shock, surprise, questioning, rejection, and finally decided to read ahead! Because Hey, we are doing this for fun after all!

Lets us look at the evidence that supports this theory.

To start with, it’s the plots of the two films in question. Both scripts progress along similar lines wherein a group of people is confronted with an unusual atmosphere and the lone survivor who manages to live through all the offbeat experiences will be faced with the industrialist and tell the man that this was all just a test and he had passed with flying colors. The sentence typically ends with, you are the rightful heir to this quirky empire you just had a tour of.

This is just the general similarity between the two movies. Wait until you hear the links that connect the two characters.

Wilford, the inventor of the super train and conductor is hypothesized to be a grown-up Charlie Bucket who turned into a maniac after he had accumulated a huge pile of wealth through the candy business. When he is put in charge of saving lives onboard the train, he puts all his faith in the people he trusts the most. The gun-slinging Mike Teavee is his chief executor. Veruca Salt who was rescued by Charlie from the chocolate factory returns in this film as Wilford’s unapologetic supporter- Mason. Gilliam, Willford’s closest partner is Mr. Wilkinson Who is pretending to side with the resistance, although in reality, he is just an infiltrator fulfilling his duties as he did for Wonka.

Sound like pretty extreme statements these, right here. But the deeper you dive into the details, the more it starts making sense. Besides if they managed to survive the tour of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, they were probably crazier than they looked.

This adds an extra bone-chilling shiver to the voyeuristic deaths he/she does on-screen.

We Are Still Here will undoubtedly be the single most terrifying movie to be released back in 2015. Different from the other movies of the genre, this flick begins at the bloodbath itself. Apparently, the director doesn’t wait much for baiting or switching and confidently takes us right into the danger.

5. It Comes at Night (2017)

⭐6.2/10 ⌛1h 31min

8 Movies On Hulu To Make You Fall In Love

by Kaylen Summers

Whether it’s break-up or patch up, we all love watching a good romance unfold on our screen. But, finding these feel-good rom-coms can be a miserable task at times. (Admit it! We all have been there.)

However, if you are on Hulu, then there is an extensive collection of romantic flick that can easily connect with your soft side. From classics to little-known favorites, here is a list of the best movie love stories that you can find on Hulu. The next time you’re craving for a rom-com, you can simply pick one from the list or binge-watch them all.

Pretty in Pink (1986)

When it comes to rom-coms, Pretty in Pink is iconic like every other John Hughes movie in the genre. Molly Ringwald plays the role of Andie Walsh, a young teenage girl who is in love with the rich boy Blane. Redefining the concept of teenage lovesickness on film, the core construct of this flick resonates with young audiences even today. If you are looking for some burning teenage love, then Pretty in Pink will be the right one to start from.

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.

Chasing Amy (1997)

Yes, you heard it right. Back in the ’90s, this movie was nicknamed as the “Ben Affleck falls in love with a lesbian” movie. Though the plot is pretty much that, Chasing Amy is more about love than just sexual politics. It explores the male insecurity in finding love and maintaining it and other human emotions. The movie is a wonderfully crafted rom-com with a bittersweet ending.

Sixteen Candles (1984)

John Hughes is back again on the list with the teenage masterpiece Sixteen Candles. More than just a romance, this iconic movie is a coming-of-age comedy flick. However, its core is pure and its ending truly romantic. The movie follows 16-year-old Sam Baker (Molly Ringwald) on her birthday. Her parents have completely forgotten about their daughter’s birthday and her crush, Jake Ryan (Michael Schoeffling) doesn’t even know she exists.

Let the Right One In (2008)

This one will surely not be your first choice for a romantic movie on Hulu. However, there is something about Let the Right One In that makes it romantic and sweet from all the other movies. Yes, the flick is about a little boy and a little girl vampire and it’s a little spooky at times. But, no one will ever deny how sweet it is for this movie to present the beloved as the ultimate protector for her lover.

Secretary (2002)

Are all romances about puppy dogs and flowers? This movie says otherwise. From the sexual complexities of dominance and submission to some good old fashioned BDSM, this movie will make you rethink about the generic love stories. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, the movie is about Lee Holloway who takes a job as a secretary for E. Edward Grey (James Spader). The two soon embark on an unusual romantic relationship…

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.

Sense and Sensibility (1993)

Adapted from the Jane Austen novel of the same name, the 1995 film Sense and Sensibility is filled with talent both on camera and behind. Directed by Oscar-winner Ang Lee, the movie is surprisingly scripted by Emma Thompson. (The same actress who starred in Love Actually and Nanny McPhee.)

XX/XY (2002)

That’s a pretty awesome title, right?!  XX/XY refers to the two chromosomal pairings that make up women and men respectively. The movie, on the other hand, has nothing to do with genetics. It is about two women and one man who are entangled up together in a turmoil of emotions. Two college roommates, Sam (Maya Stange) and Thea (Kathleen Robertson) have a wild sexual encounter with animator Coles (Mark Ruffalo). Going through their relationship, the movie explores how one treats passion differently in young adulthood and adulthood.

6 Netflix Movies With Awesome Twist Ending

by Kaylen Summers

A good plot-twist in the third act can surely make the movie experience worth it. There is nothing like investing a good 90, 95 minutes in a story and then out of nowhere the ending completely turning everything you saw upside down. These movie moments are so priceless that they become the most lauded and crucial aspect of the film.

Take M. Night Shyamalan movies for example. The guy has literally made a living out of making movies with twist endings. But, those are the best ones. End up with one of the worst and you will be wondering why you wasted your time watching it.

Thankfully, Netflix has a long list of movies with great twist endings and we have picked 6 of the best ones from them. 

The Invitation (2015)

⌛ 1h 40min  ⭐6.6/10

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.

2. Devil (2010)

⌛ 1h 20m  ⭐6.2/10

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.

3. Vanilla Sky (2001)

⌛ 2h 17m  ⭐6.9/10

Telling the story of David Aames, a publishing magnate, this flick has Tom Cruise playing the lead role. Aames gets into a car crash and scars his face. The incident forces him into an existential crisis and raises questions about the existing reality of his life. However, all these questions are given a shocking answer with a remarkable plot twist at the end of the movie.

4. Primal Fear (1996)

⌛ 2h 10m  ⭐7.7/10

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.

5. Raw (2016)

⌛ 1h 39m  ⭐7/10

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.

6. The Village (2004)

⌛ 1h 39m  ⭐6.5/10

Written and directed by the master of plot twists, M. Night Shyamalan, the twist in The Village may sound a little dumb at first. However, you have to hand it to the director for making such an unrepentant big swing in the third act. Watch the movie just for that.

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.

by Kaylen Summers

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)

Are all romances about puppy dogs and flowers? This movie says otherwise. From the sexual complexities of dominance and submission to some good old fashioned BDSM, this movie will make you rethink about the generic love stories. Starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, the movie is about Lee Holloway who takes a job as a secretary for E. Edward Grey (James Spader). The two soon embark on an unusual romantic relationship…

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.

8 Zombie Apocalypse Movies on Netflix

by Emily Keen

Since the zombie folklore was discovered by filmmakers, it went on to become one of the most experimented themes of cinema. Not just films, the legends found a way into the world of music too.

As more zombie features rolled out, the rage began to envelope new sections of audiences. Movies like Zombieland and Warm Bodies went on to become extraordinary hits. A-listers like Brad Pitt and Will Smith began to star in a spar against undead corpses and that dramatically enhanced the number of zombie enthusiasts.

There is no better option than Netflix when you are looking for diverse content. But surprisingly the streaming service’s menu of zombie pics is limited. Here are a few that you can stream.

 

  1. Day of the Dead: Bloodline (2018)

Image result for Day of the Dead: Bloodline movieZombies in this film are referred to as rotters. They don’t eat humans, they just bite them and spread the infection. Zoe is a young medical student who survives the attack of these biting creatures. In the wake of the emergency, she is transferred to a refugee camp where she serves the victims of the attacks and carries out research to come up with a cure. After a gap of five years, the rotters return and confront her at the refugee camp, and dark secrets of her life began to surface in the process.

 

  1. Gallowwalkers (2012)

Image result for Gallowwalkers movieUnlike other Zombie movies, where the undead is the villains to be exterminated by a human protagonist, Gallowwalkers has puts an undead man centre stage. The backstory being, his cadaver was resurrected by his relatives so he could avenge his death and the rape of the woman he loved. The film comes across as weird and highly goofy with the odd methods of killing and ripping of human skin.

 

  1. Rise of the Zombie (2013)

Image result for Rise of the Zombie movieNeil Parker takes a trip into the woods post a fight with his girlfriend, Vinny. An unexplained wound on his arm begins to fester and he finds himself indiscriminately consuming insects, leaves, bugs and soon it is humans. He tries to reach out to Vinny who is his only hope in this dastardly situation but she is not available. The first of a supposed trilogy, the film garnered attention and appreciation for a  substantial plot.

 

  1. KL Zombi (2013)

Image result for KL Zombi movieNipis from Kuala Lumpar (the extended form of KL in the title) finds his leisurely hockey love quite useful when the city is under a zombie attack. Entertainment value at its peak, although the performance and the plot are sorts of overdone.

 

  1. Doom (2005)

Image result for Doom movieHell breaks loose as a group of vicious humanoids take control of a research lab on Mars and create a ruckus. A group of mariners set out on a quest of hunting and eliminating these beings from Mars. With gore and horror in abundance, the film will take you back to your childhood where you played a similar game. The movie does not follow a gritty story or have any character arcs. It is purely an action flick meant for entertainment.

 

  1. The Rezort (2015)

Image result for The Rezort movieThis one right here is an original and distinct plot that does not lack substance. There is character depth, a gripping storyline and the camera work is magnificent. The film is based in a ReZort which offers killing zombies as a part of leisure sports. Sounds odd huh? But the plot progresses into a captivating experience and besides some below-average performances, nothing about this film is disappointing.

 

  1. Ladronas de Almas (2015)

Image result for Ladronas de Almas movieTranslates to ‘Soul Robbers’! The film is set during the time of the Mexican War of Independence. A group of rebels plan to invade the house of a paraplegic old man residing with his three daughters and a servant. They soon find out that the family is not human and in fact are undead and is supported by their Haitian servant. For those who do not know, Haiti is the birthplace of the legend of Zombies and presumably, no one knows more about them than the residents of Haiti.  The film ended in a cliffhanger and was well received by critics and audiences. Although no sequel has been announced as of yet.

 

  1. Here Alone (2016)

Image result for Here Alone movieA family escapes a zombie outbreak and seeks refuge in the woods. But as time passes Ann, the mother remains the sole survivor in the wilderness. She crosses paths with a teenager and her stepfather who is wounded and helps them. But going ahead, things start getting complicated and that ensues a tale full of action and interesting character arcs. The film has one of the best sound editing and background score. The script might seem a little flawed but you will definitely enjoy the ride.

8 Highly Underrated Movies of All Times

by Emily Keen

Cinema is one tricky business. It gives the most passionate minds the space to channel their emotions and yet only a few manage to soar heights and actually get noticed amongst the troves of movies that are released. Not a very fortunate thing to happen to the films that were made with such dedication and alleviated by incredible performances.

You can almost sense the passion with which they were made and yet they somehow manage to slip under the radar. Seriously, why isn’t there enough love in these movies? Amongst these, there are those that may have to be flawed but still went on to become cult favourites.

We have some of these wonderful actors turning in great performances, but since the movie does not get enough vocal advocates, it simply drowns in the noise.  Take the excellent and stunningly crafted The Dark Crystal. The film is a visual treat and yet criminally underrated.

There are many more by the likes of these. Let’s have a look at them one by one.

  1.   Saved

Image result for saved movie mandy mooreThis movie is a testament to just how wonderful is Mandy Moore in comedic roles. The hilarious film is set in a Christian high school where the mean queen Hillary Faye tries to control her pregnant friend Mary. The sharp sarcasm around Christianity and the iconic scene where Mandy Moore hurls a bible at Jena shouting ‘I am filled with Christ’s love’ are the highlights of this highly underrated teen comedy.

 

  1.   Uptown Girls

Image result for Uptown Girls movieFrankly, this Brittany Murphy starrer never got the credit it deserved as a classic. It will leave you in tears and awestruck at just how much you can relate to Murphy’s Molly as a 22-year-old girl. One warning- the desire to get those Egyptian cotton sheets will stick around until you get one of those.

 

  1.   Hackers

Image result for hackers movieA cult favourite Hackers had quite the futuristic story and also happens to be the breakout film for Angelina Jolie. Everything about this film made a statement- the clothes, the visuals, the characters. Not to mention the music, that was devoured by younger audiences.

 

  1.   Into the Blue

Image result for Into the Blue movieMight I suggest this one, just for all Paul Walker fans? Take the word at face value- he looks so gorgeous in this one, you will fall in love with him all over again. That is basically one selling point of the film and the other being Jessica Alba’s character that brought her into the spotlight as a leading lady.

 

  1.   Alpha Dog

Image result for Alpha Dog movieThis gem has a separate elite movie nerd fan base and holds a respectful spot among movies that impact lives. It may not be a cinematic masterpiece, but the story has fire in it. Anton Yelchin is the star of the show, outperforming the star image he gained with big flicks like Star Trek.  

 

  1.   Pet Sematary

Image result for Pet Sematary movieDerived from a Stephan King book this is one horror experience you will want to have again and again. The story subverts expectations and constantly improves with every watch. This is the kind of movie that will make you feel disgusted and terrorized at once.

 

  1.   Right on Track

Image result for Right on Track movieThis sports adventure belongs to times when kids movies were everything but soft. The rugged race tracks are meant only for men and race car drivers Courtney and Erica Enders are on a quest to change the notions of a misogynistic world.

 

  1.   Dark Crystal

Image result for Dark Crystal movieAn astonishing work of art in every sense, The Dark Crystal is for those who have faith in the ingenuity of myths and legends. It will bring out a surge of emotions, including terror, awe, sympathetic and at times tears. And not just once or twice. It will happen each time you revisit this legendary piece of cinema.

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.

6 Movies To Watch With Your Family

by Kaylen Summers

Hugo (2011)

A quirky ride power packed for younger groups of audiences is what Hugo is at large. The tale speaks of Hugo, an orphan who loses his father in a fire. While there is nothing particularly concerning or even alarming about the film, the tone adopted in the film by Sasha Baron Cohen’s character where she speaks of pregnancy and infidelity may have upset a few sections.

Minions (2015)

You know how kids’ movies are. They are silly, filled with humor and a simple narrative easy for the little ones to understand. But when critics got sight of Minions, they instantly hated the movie. Why? Because critics are all adults and not kids. Though the Despicable Me spin-off initially got only a 50% score on Rotten Tomatoes, it went on to earn a global box office haul of over $1 billion.

The Terminal (2004)

Eventually, everyone starts to think that he is the real Santa Claus. This heartwarming film will surely make your holiday season special.

The Meg (2018)

There is no doubt that The Meg was nothing more than an ultra-budget B-movie with Jason Statham in the lead role. Critics and domestic audiences hated the movie for its hollow theme and crappy plot. However, things were a little different for the Chinese audience. The movie became a blockbuster in China, grossing over $500 million at the worldwide box office.

Zathura: A Space Adventure (2005)

This whimsical space adventure has two brothers (aged 6 and 10) put aside their conflicts embark on a journey that will have them facing off against infuriated extra-terrestrial beasts. However, this movie is an absolute No-No if you despise foul language though!
