‘Hubie Halloween’ Review: Netflix’s Trick or Treat?

by Kaylen Summers

One of the major releases from Netflix this Halloween is Adam Sandler’s horror-comedy, Hubie Halloween. Though the movie has met with mixed reviews, it is undoubtedly a fun flick to watch. There is everything that you expect from an Adam Sandler family comedy movie. Surprisingly this one has more to offer than the actor’s usual fare.

The movie revolves around the character of Hubie, who is the most bullied guy in Salem. Ever since his childhood, Hubie has appointed himself to keep his townspeople safe during the Halloween season. As a result, he becomes a laughingstock and the target of constant pranks from everyone around him. When a mysterious inmate escapes from the asylum nearby, it is up to Hubie to save the town and the holiday.

Sandler has a proven track record when it comes to making feel-good movies for family audiences. Movies like Grown-ups, Anger management, and Click are some of the movies belonging to this pattern. In many ways, Hubie Halloween also feels as if he is returning to his familiar terrain for an easy win. However, the movie is different in many minute ways and perhaps those details are the key reasons why we feel charmed by the movie.

One of the major goals that we see throughout the movie is the callbacks to earlier Sandler movies. Of course, there is the fact that he is continuing his repeated trend of working with past collaborators like Kevin James and Rob Schneider. Other than that, there is Julie Bowen who plays a love interest role like in Happy Gilmore, and Tim Meadows from movies like Grown-Ups. This nostalgic pat on the back does give some good jokes and movie moments. 

What makes this movie stand out from all the other Sandler’s feel-good movies/characters is the fact that Hugie does not need to be reminded that his life has value. There are no complex, new ideas or struggles within the plot to establish this. The movie skillfully normalizes his disabilities into his abilities, making the audience feel that the character is cool enough to root for. Add that to the wonderfully corrosive comic persona of Adam Sandler and you have a movie that is actually a treat this Halloween.

In order to do that, she must find a way to defeat the Boogeyman, who is also known as ‘The Grand Guignol’. The movie is rated PG and will be an exciting one to you and your family.

The Addams Family

We all remember this title as a timeless animated classic from the past. The animated show with its strange characters and scenario has its own cult following even today. The 1991 live-action movie featuring the beloved characters is not different. Uncle Fester is returning back home and he is behaving in an unusual way. The entire family suspects that he is not the Addams that he claims. 

The Spiderwick Chronicles

However, things take a turn when they find out that the house is actually the home to an alternative, magical universe. With some magical creatures surrounding them, their adventures began to take them far and wide.

Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween

We all loved reading the eerie fictional series by R.L.Stine. This sequel is a comedy-horror movie about two young friends Sonny and Sam who finds an ancient manuscript while cleaning an old, abandoned house. The mysterious book has the power to bring the characters from its novel into real life. With all the scary creatures out, will the two friends be able to survive?


This dark fantasy comedy movie is a treat for any fan of stop-motion animation films. Norman is a young boy who has the ability to talk to dead people. His supernatural abilities have made it hard for him to socialize like other kids his age. When the 300-year old witch’s curse was upon the town, he finally decided to use his powers to save the day. Filled with ghosts and zombies, this is one Halloween treat that you don’t want to miss.

The Witches

While HBO Max released the new version with Anne Hathaway, the timeless classic starring Anjelica Huston still stands out as a worthy Halloween watch. The movie is an adaptation of the beloved novel of the same name from Roald Dahl and tells the story of a young boy and his grandmother who discovers a secret society of witches who disguises as normal women to catch children. 

Hubie Halloween

This Adam Sandler movie is one of the major additions to Netflix’s Halloween movie catalog. The actor plays the role of an eccentric named Hubie who is dedicated to keeping the people of his hometown safe on Halloween. This turns him into a laughing stock in front of the others. However, when a suspicious inmate breaks out of the nearby psychiatric hospital, it is up to Hubie to save the day.

‘Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events’

Don’t mistake this for the Netflix original series starring Neil Patrick-Harris. This is the first big-screen adaptation of the children’s book series, with Jim Carrey playing a creepy stalkerish, yet memorable role. The story is about the unlucky lives of the three Baudelaire children. After the death of their parents, the three end up with their creepy relative played by Carrey. From there it is a bizarre ride, in which they must find the truth behind their parents’ death.

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.


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.

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.

‘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.

Best Action Movies Streaming On Netflix

by Kaylen Summers

Good action movies can get your adrenaline pumping and keep you at the edge of your seats. If you are looking for such action-packed thrillers, then look no further. Here are some of the best action movies available for streaming on Netflix.

Air Force One (1997)

James Marshall is the President of the United States. While traveling on Air Force One with his family, a group of terrorists attacks him. With no other way to escape, he leaves his diplomacy behind to pick up an automatic weapon to protect his family and others on board the plane. The role of Marshall is played by Harrison Ford and it turned out to be one of the biggest hits of his career.

IP Man (2008)

There is no doubt that IP Man is the best modern martial art movie to appear before the Hollywood audience (even though it is technically not a mainstream Hollywood movie). Donnie Yen dons the role of the fictional instructor of Bruce Lee. When a Japanese General starts to terrorize a small Chinese community, Yen decides to use his martial arts skills to stop him and protect the community.

Wheelman (2017)

During a bank robbery, a getaway driver gets a mysterious call to double-cross. With the lives of his family members on the line, he has no other choice and the robbery goes sideways. Now, the caller is asking him to reroute the money to another place. As the double-crossing starts to take its full impact, the driver is forced to move on an increasingly dangerous path.

The Night Comes For Us (2018)

If you like the hyperactive action film Raid, then you will definitely enjoy watching this Indonesian action movie with a similar structure. An Assassin and his team of Triad killers are out to protect a young girl. With the action starts, the violence becomes as brutal and bloody as that of a hardcore slasher-horror movie. If you are a fan of such action sequences, then this should be your first pick.

The Debt Collector (2018)

Just like Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal, Scott Adkins movies are also filled with martial art moves. In this movie, he plays the role of a martial arts trainer who is forced to take up the role of a bill collector. If you are a fan of the cult Van Damme movies of the past era, then Scott Adkins has done a wonderful job in bringing it back with his go-for-broke fight scenes.

Extraction (2020)

The latest addition to Netflix’s catalog of action movies is the newly released Extraction starring Chris Hemsworth. Playing the role of a mercenary, Hemsworth is tasked with rescuing and protecting the son of a drug dealer who got kidnapped.

6 Best Mind-Blowing Movies On Netflix

by Kaylen Summers

Check out this list of movies that are sure to make you question everything.

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. 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.

Amidst the vicious assortment of the walking dead, a mercenary (played by Dave Bautista) brings together a group of soldiers to retrieve a casino owner’s money from the quarantined zone of the zombie-infested city.  Snyder came up with the idea of the plot and put together a script along with Shay Hatten.

Apart from Bautista, the movie contains one exciting line up including Ella Purnell, Omari Hardwick, Theo Rossi, Ana De La Reguera, Huma Qureshi, Hiroyuki Sanada, Chris D’Elia, Garret Dillahunt, Raúl Castillo, Nora Arnezeder, Matthias Schweighöfer, Samantha Win and Rich Cetrone.

When the project was announced Snyder was excited to have full creative independence with a film. He said in a statement, “There are no handcuffs on me at all with this one. I love to honor canon and the works of art, but this is the opportunity to find a purely joyful way to express myself through a genre. It will be the most kick-ass, self-aware — but not in a wink-to-the-camera way — balls-to-the-wall zombie freakshow that anyone has ever seen. No one’s ever let me completely loose [like this].”

In a recent interview, he also expressed how the movie has given him a chance to introspect and grow.

“With Army [of the Dead], it’s difficult not to do to a social statement because the movie is about building a wall for refugees and veterans but it’s also fun to do a zombie heist in Vegas. It makes it richer and better. I can’t help myself. I’ve always worked in a self-reflective way. Cinema is a reflective art form.”

History has not been very kind to Netflix’s decision of giving directors full creative control over films. Films like Roma, Gerald’s Game Apostle and Hold the Dark have failed to generate a consistent response from the audience. Snyder, however, seems pretty confident about his ideas as the movie falls well in the confines of his creative expertise.

Netflix has not given an official release date for the movie. Zack However has revealed the launch could happen somewhere in the winter of 2020. We are hoping the project is worth all the wait.

9 Netflix Movies That Are too NSFW to Watch

by Emily Keen

However progressive, humans are bound to have sweat dripping off their forehead if they have to share a room while a sex scene runs on TV. Especially if it’s with a parent! The feeling of secondhand embarrassment is universal to humanity, no matter what age you are strutting through.

So here are a few movies that need to stay strictly off-limits on family get-togethers or even movie nights with friends. Friends too yes! Unless of course, you share a blatant lack of respect for each others privacy.


  1. The Late Bloomer



Run Time: 90 min | IMDb: 5.2/10

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.


  1. Below Her Mouth


Run Time: 94 min | IMDb: 5.5/10

A Lesbian romance that begins with two women discovering their sexual preferences when they meet each other over a weekend. With that begins a highly sensual and defiant tale of love. The scenes are every shade of lust, a lesbian desires in her wildest dreams. They are way too NSFW to be played in a company that does not approve of a generous sexual display. Directed by April Mullen, the not so praise worthy script, is an absolute erotica aimed at teens and night-loners.


  1. Nymphomaniac Vol I


Run Time: 117 min | IMDb: 6.9/10

Do we even have to guess after reading the title? Director Lars von Trier made quite a choice of using porn actors as body doubles to film the sex scenes and then using CGI to make it look like they were performed by real actors. The plot follows Joe (played by Charlotte Gainsborough) who is found in a bad shape in an alley. The movie is largely about Joe (a nymphomaniac) recalling the sexual experiences from her youth. With so much sex and extremely kinky stuff going on most of the time, the movie easily earns a safe spot in the list of NSFW movies.


  1. Immoral Tales


Run Time: 103 min | IMDb: 5.7/10

An anthology that features four stories with a vivid display of sexual desire and its manifestation across the series. But what apparently makes it a bad movie night contender are the silent, background score lacking, erotica-oozing frames. Ever had an uncomfortable experience when an extremely intimate scene pops up when with parents? You even stop breathing hoping they forget you exist in that moment. That’s exactly the kind of embarrassment this erotic flick is meant to ensue.


  1. The Package


Run Time: 94 min | IMDb: 5.5/10

The package seems like a safe way to address the entity they are actually trying to imply here. Wait till you find out what the discretion holds, highly protected in a cooler.

Whatever! It’s a Penis!

Already grossed out? Well then don’t watch, because the fate of the penis is way too worse than the hospitalized teen who chops it off with a switchblade. An unfortunate incident unfolds on a  spring break, where one among the group of highly messed up teens incises his tenders and the group safely sends him to the hospital. Only with the wrong package! Could things go more wrong? Yeah! They are already high up the mountains by the time they realize their friend might just pay the price of their carelessness. A dark comedy aimed at saving genitalia, The Package is not for the feeble ones who mellow up jargon with euphemisms.


  1. The Little Hours


Run Time: 90 min | IMDb: 5.8/10

A young male appears at the door of a convent seeking refuge and projects himself as deaf and mute. One trip of thought and he blows up his cover! Speak of blasphemy and there is a lot going on in this convent full of vulnerable nuns. You might want to pass on this one if you have an aunt who strictly insists on saying “grace” before dinner and Amen after every single thought.


  1. Love


Run Time: 135 min | IMDb: 6.1/10

A 3D sexual adventure that will blow your mind with thrice the level of erotica. An artistic sex epic weaved with closely packed sex scenes and visuals of privates up for display,  Gaspar Noé’s Love, created quite a buzz at the film festivals. The film is about a couple looking to amplify their sexual experience with a threesome but forget to factor in the emotional chaos it might lead to.


  1. Blue Is the Warmest Color


Run Time: 180 min | IMDb: 7.8/10

A poignant account of Adele’s romantic experience with a blue-haired woman- Emma!. Self-discovery is the crux of the story and inspiration ensues as Adele blooms in Emma’s presence. The story draws its plot from a novel and is quite a piece of art cinema. It however contains a long and intense scene of graphic sex hindering your desire of experiencing this beautiful tale of Lesbian romance.


  1. Y Tu Mamá También


Run Time: 106 min | IMDb: 7.6/10

This art drama directed by Alfonso Cuaron may particularly not be an oasis of vulgarity, but does contain a threesome of electrifying intensity. So definitely not safe to watch at work kind of movie! Cuaron cinema is bound to be a muscular script with underlying subtext. One thing we ought to remember is that art-house directors believe in “No compromises”. It is essential to bring out the depth and conviction in each character. And being a coming of age drama, Y Tu Mamá También demands at least some aggressive making out.

So the next time you decide to watch any of these movies, be sure to maintain a low profile.

9 Best Netflix Original Movies So Far

by Emily Keen

In the world of event cinema, finding interesting stories driven by passion and originality is a tough task. But if you have Netflix, you need not sweat it! Some of the most engaging dramas are waiting to be discovered right away. 

Here is a list of nine such wonderfully crafted stories:

  1.   Roma (2018)

Run Time: 135 min | IMDb: 7.8/10

This mellow piece of drama shot in pellucid black and white frames follows the life of two women. Sofia, a mother of four and Cleo the maid of their house are walking parallel roads disappointed by the spineless men who left them alone to deal with their plight. Alfonso Cuaron intelligently combines the ingredients of tragedy, comedy, and mystery to brew up a soulful tale of a dysfunctional household in Mexico. And to top that is the extraordinary performance of a tender and stoic Cleo, scaling up the drama to a sheer work of art.


  1.   Mudbound (2017)

Run Time: 134 min | IMDb: 7.4/10

Mudbound is a poetically maneuvered narrative of communal tragedy layered onto the preconceived notions of racism and patriarchy. Set in the aftermath of world war II, the film explores the situation of two families (one black and one white), only to reveal they are implicitly weighed down by common distress- societal norms. This is a deviously crafted melodrama that dares to bare the sublime agony of the browbeaten by the powerful.  And just unlike a mature piece of cinema, it aims at evoking response based on individual perceptions with subtle clues of information hidden in the beats.


  1.   Happy as Lazzaro (2018)

Run Time: 128 min | IMDb: 7.6/10

Based on real events in Italy, Happy as Lazzaro is a story of a naïve young man who lives among the sharecroppers on a farm. Another tale of a socially oppressed class of workers being bossed around by their landlords, that introduces you to a perplexing mindset of a boy who despite being exploited with intensive labor, sees his life as idyllic. An engaging buildup waiting to reveal the mysterious cause of the Lazzaro’s happiness, the film will have you puzzled but still wanting to keep wandering in the world created teller.


  1.   Beasts of No Nation (2015)

Run Time: 137 min | IMDb: 7.8/10

An uncompromising and emotionally powerful depiction of what war costs humanity! Beasts of No Nation is a poignant tale of a village boy strayed by the men who portray themselves as messiahs and manipulate young minds to commit ruthless crimes disguised as “heroism”. Gauging the depths of a soldier’s mind, the movie brings out the truth of the lives of men in uniforms who take pride in unleashing the beasts within.


  1.   Private Life (2018)

Run Time: 123 min | IMDb: 7.3/10

The “Private Life” is a comical venture into the lives of a middle-aged couple who cannot get pregnant owing to an awfully unfortunate status quo of their reproductive system. Truly painful a situation yet a rich premise for a humorous drama, the story explores the frustrations of an impotent couple. Their obsession with bearing a child takes a hard hit at their professional and personal lives until they have a guest who comes as a beacon of hope. A brilliant mix of observations and gags skillfully sprinkled onto the story of two ambitious people bearing the brunt of their choices.


  1.   The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (2018)

Run Time: 133 min | IMDb: 7.3/10

An anthology of political nature at large 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.


  1.   On Body and Soul (2017)

Run Time: 116 min | IMDb: 7.6/10

A bizarre yet unique plot that unfolds in the backdrop of a slaughterhouse, On Body and Soul is a metaphorical representation of the nature of human thoughts. The story unwinds as two people begin to fall in love with each other and live the experience not in the real world but through a common dream. Yes, therein lies the bizarre part of the story! It is a whimsical depiction of an ostensible world where humans find it okay to chop animals for trade but deep down a part of them, construes the act as horrible. 


  1.   The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

Run Time: 112 min | IMDb: 6.9/10

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!


  1.   The Little Prince (2016)

Run Time: 108 min | IMDb: 7.7/10

Based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s 1943 children’s classic, the little prince is an animated composition remixed with instruments of modernism. The story unfolds as a clandestine relationship between a child and her aviator neighbor who introduces the central character of the movie. The little prince from outer space strikes the face of the earth from outer space and falls in love with a high strung rose but ultimately loses his innocence as he grows to accept the ruthless norms of the world. 

So what are we waiting for? Switch to Netflix and binge-watch these amazing movies now!

The Irishman: De Niro Recreates Iconic ‘Goodfellas’ Scene to Test De-Aging CGI

by Kaylen Summers

A lot of surprises awaits fans as Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman is finally arriving in cinemas and on Netflix. The film will feature the iconic cast of Robert De Niro, Al Pachino and Joe Pesci in a multiple-decade-spanning mob story, with the help of extensive, revolutionary de-aging CGI.

Scorsese is known for pushing the boundaries of cinema. However, telling a story of characters from their 20s to 80s is a huge swing for even him. It is in this predicament that the filmmaker looked into his own past before starting the work.

According to Industrial Light & Magic’s Pablo Helman: “We made a little set that looked a little like the original film, and then Bob got going. He did his monologues and soliloquies and different expressions. ‘Get rid of the fur coat! Get rid of the Cadillac!’ Then he went through a series of computer processes.”

Scorsese and the others recreated an old scene from the original Goodfellas to check how effective the de-aged tech will be. It was only after watching the de-aged version and the original scene back-to-back that they decided that the approach would work for the film.

“We made a little set that looked a little like the original film, and then [De Niro] got going,” Scorsese explained, “He did his monologues and soliloquies and different expressions… Then he went through a series of computer processes”.

The Irishman marks the ninth time Scorsese and De Niro collaborating. It was in 1995’s Casino that the filmmaker and his trusted muse worked together the last time. The movie also pairs De Niro with his fellow crime-cinema icons Al Pacino and Joe Pesci in the cast. The three actors have worked together before, with Pacino and De Niro previously working for Heat, and De Niro and Pesci sharing screen for Scorsese’s Raging Bull, Goodfellas, and Casino.

The story for The Irishman is adapted from Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses by Oscar-winner Steve Zaillian (Schindler’s ListGangs of New York). It chronicles the life of hitman Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran through his days of being a young WWII veteran to his career as a hired gun for the Bufalino crime family and involvement in the disappearance of labor leader Jimmy Hoffa (Pacino).

Though there is no doubt that the movie will be another cult classic, the production budget for the effect and de-aging De Niro and his costars was more than $159 million. This, in turn, made it Scorsese’s most expensive film to date. Either way, Netflix seems to be happy with how things turned out. With the movie premiering at the New York Film Festival, we will be seeing it in select theaters for a few weeks in November and then on the streaming service.

‘The Irishman’ To Have A 210 Minutes Long Runtime

by Kaylen Summers

Yep! You heard it right. Martin Scorsese’s star-studded The Irishman will clock in a bum-numbing three hours and thirty minutes. Even though the movie is inching closer to its November release, not much has yet been revealed to about the flick. However, the newly disclosed details about the movie’s runtime will surely give fans a heads-up before its official release.

When compared with other ‘long runtime movies’, The Irishman is less than Gone With The Wind (238 minutes), Once Upon A Time In America (229 minutes) and Lawrence of Arabia (216 minutes). However, it is nine minutes longer than Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King and 10 minutes than The Godfather: Part II.

It was only last month that the film’s first trailer got released, featuring the first glimpse of a de-aged Robert De Niro. Even though we haven’t heard much about the movie since then, it is obvious now that the film has an incredibly impressive cast including De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. It’s also one of Scorsese’s priciest films yet, with a reported budget of $160 million (£130m).

Though the movie gets its premiere at the New York Film Festival on 27 September, it will only be available briefly in cinemas in the UK from 8 November. However, from 27 November onwards, the movie will begin streaming on Netflix.

Here is the official trailer for The Irishman:

Black Mirror: Bandersnatch Review

by Utkarsh Bansal

Critics who announced their top ten lists before December 28, 2018 must be kicking themselves. If Bandersnatch is indeed a movie, it’s one that’s easily worthy of a spot. Directed by David Slade, whose filmography shall always remain tainted by the fact that he directed one of the Twilight movies, Bandersnatch is an experience the likes of which we’ve never seen in live action before. Not even those of us who have watched interactive choose-your-own-adventure style videos.

There’s a major debate in video gaming over how much freedom a player should have for the best experience, about whether we really want choice or just the illusion of choice. Bandersnatch doesn’t just find a place for itself on this spectrum of freedom versus illusion and then use it to tell a narrative. Instead, it tells a story that is precisely about navigating the spectrum. On one level, this manifests in the dialogue and the themes of the story itself. But beyond that, you also feel it ingrained in the structure of the movie, in the sense that how much choice the game gives you at any moment directly impacts your emotional involvement in that scene. There are times when being presented with a false choice (where both options lead to the same outcome) is frustrating. But there are also times when you wish you weren’t given a choice at all because both options presented are, to say the least, unpleasant, and making the choice makes you feel responsible for the consequences.

And that’s just one of the ways in which Bandersnatch plays with your mind.

I suppose now is when I should tell you what it’s all about. It’s 1984, and Stefan (Fionn Whitehead, Dunkirk) is adapting Bandersnatch, a choose your own adventure novel, into a video game. In the process, he gets to meet and interact with his idol, legendary game developer Colin Ritman, (Will Poulter, The Revenant). Early on, we learn that the process of creating an interactive novel drove the author crazy and he killed his wife. In the film, we follow Stefan’s own descent into or struggle against madness and paranoia (though depending on your interpretation, his fears may actually be well founded). One can only hope that the writer of this movie, Charlie Brooker, does not turn crazy and murderous himself.

Beyond what I’ve already said, it’s not easy to discuss Bandersnatch without taking some of the fun away. Much of the surprise lies not just in the plot twists but in realising how far it’ll take its gimmick. The word bandersnatch, incidentally, comes from Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland books, a fact I only mention so I can say that the further you go down the rabbit hole of choices in this film, the curiouser and curiouser it gets. This is a sci-fi thriller, not a comedy, yet there are moments that make you laugh at their sheer audacity. Hours after having gone through it twice, and having watched, as far as I can tell, all possible endings, my friends and I are still trying to sort through the various questions it left us with, from abstract philosophical questions of responsibility to the kind of weird questions only great science fiction can tackle.

Lest we let form take over content, I should address the quality of the clips themselves. The screenwriting here is fantastic, with efficient dialogue that skillfully uses interactions to build character. The philosophical conversations are just the right level of on-the-nose. On a technical side, Slade ably does the job of translating the material to screen without adding much. There’s no flair to the cinematography or the set design. It could almost have felt like a drag if not for the terrific performances across the board. Fionn Whitehead had already shown us what he could do with very little dialogue in Dunkirk. Now we know how good he is with dialogue, and a lot of it. Will Poulter, who’s always great, is unsurprisingly great here too, perfectly conveying both Colin’s brilliance and his nuttiness.

In addition to being an excellent movie on its own merits, Bandersnatch is also groundbreaking. On the one hand, I’m excited to see this format go mainstream. It’s certainly versatile, and can be applied to genres like fantasy, romance and even superheroes. But on the other hand, Bandersnatch may have deconstructed the very notion of interactive storytelling so thoroughly that any future stories in the format run the risk of feeling contrived.

Your move, Netflix.

Shirkers Review

by Utkarsh Bansal

In 1992, 3 young adults tried to make what could have been Singapore’s first indie film, a road movie called Shirkers. The 3 women were writer, assistant director and producer, and Georges Cardona, a living breathing mystery of a man, was the director. I’d rather not tell you much more about what happened, since everything in this documentary is a surprise, but suffice it to say that this documentary-about-the-troubled-production-of-a-movie is unlike any other.

Sandi Tan conceived of the original project and wrote the screenplay. The film would follow a teenage serial killer as she drove around the country, “collecting” hapless victims, taking them along with her on her journey. We get glimpses of the movie Shirkers in the documentary Shirkers, and from what we see, it’s remarkably thoughtful and introspective, given the writer’s age. Sandi Tan and her fellow filmmakers, Sophie and Jasmine, were young visionaries, with the kind of creativity and passion that would have served as an inspiration to other young filmmakers regardless of whether their movie turned out great or terrible, if only it had been completed.

Earlier this year, I watched The Tale, an HBO movie starring Laura Dern as a fictionalised version of the director Jennifer Fox. Fox and Tan used The Tale and Shirkers respectively to tell the stories of how they, in their 40s, finally came to terms with a messed up period from their youth where they put their faith in a charismatic older man who, in completely different ways, took advantage of them. Fox is a documentary filmmaker who chose fiction to tell this story from her life, whereas Tan is a fiction filmmaker who chose documentary. They are two of the best movies so far this year.

Shirkers is just as compelling in its first half, when it’s following the production of the movie, as it is in the second half when it follows these characters as adults trying to figure out exactly what happened, and exactly who this Georges Cardona was. It works because of how much of an enigma Cordona is, and also how much Tan herself isn’t. Her own personality, her flaws are laid bare in front of us, to the point that many may end up with the conclusion that she’s an inconsiderate asshole. This isn’t a documentary trying to make you like her, just to empathise.

The other reason Shirkers works comes down to its audio-visual style. It’s punk rock, it’s jarring, it’s nothing short of captivating. At 96 minutes, it’s already brisk, but the energetic editing makes it seem even more so. When it ends, it leaves you wanting to know more. Watch it.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before Review

by Utkarsh Bansal

Split and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World are two movies that I like, but don’t love. One of my issues with Split was that it told us that James McAvoy’s character has 23 personalities, but that number might as well have been ten or a hundred, since we only see four of them in the movie. Scott Pilgrim, on the other hand, was adapted from a series of six graphic novels where Scott faces off against seven antagonists, all of whom were crammed into one movie, not giving any of them enough time onscreen for any depth. Netflix’s new romcom, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, is another movie I liked but didn’t quite love, and my biggest issue with it is a bit of a mix of the two mentioned above.
Susan Johnson’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before stars Lana Condor (Jubilee of the X-Men) as Lara Jean, a high school wallflower who, when she has a crush on a boy, doesn’t tell him. Instead, she writes him a love letter that she never intends to send, and keeps her letters hidden away with her feelings. When she has written five of these letters, all of them mysteriously get mailed to their (un)intended recipients, leading to chaos in her relationships.

While I haven’t read the Jenny Han novel this is adapted from, I imagine the crazy possibilities of this premise must have been explored thoroughly in it. But just like Scott Pilgrim would’ve probably worked better on screen if there were, say, five enemies for Scott to take on instead of seven, I got the feeling that To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before might have worked better with four love letters. At the very least, it would have reduced the disappointment when, at the end of the first act, the story reveals itself to actually be one we’ve seen before: for unimportant (and rather contrived) reasons, a girl and a boy decide to pretend date, but start to grow to really like each other. After that point, every twist and turn in the plot, every crest and trough of the relationship between our leads, is predictable.

And yet, the movie works, at least on the level of comfort food. A big part of that comes from how natural, how lived-in the preexisting dynamics feel. Lara Jean’s relationship with her dad is as sweet and real as her relationship with her sisters, as with her best (and only) friend in school. Sure, some of these characters are cookie cutter, but they create a world around Lara Jean that is positive and inviting, a world we want to inhabit for an hour and a half, perhaps because like her, we too are scared of leaving that safety net for the real world. (Ironically, the biggest but also the most easily forgiven betrayal in the story comes from within this safety net.)

The other big reason the film works is Lara Jean herself. While the plot is full of annoying tropes such as concealment of information that didn’t need to be concealed and the love triangle (two of them, in fact), it spends very little time on these contrived conflicts. The focus, instead, is on the inner conflicts faced by the protagonist, and that’s a good thing, since in addition to being likeable, she is genuinely interesting. So what if her central arc has been done before, and better, by The Perks of Being a Wallflower? Watching someone shy leave their shell is never going to get old.

So of course, if you’re tired of romantic comedies, of their formula, this is not the movie for you. But if you’re looking for something relaxing, this is it. Testament to how much I enjoyed the movie is that when it ended with a cliffhanger setting up a potential sequel (there are three books), I was happy I’d get to spend more time with these characters. It’s not often one is genuinely excited for a sequel to a romcom, so that is saying something.

To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is available to stream on Netflix now.

Sacred Games Episode 1 Review

by Utkarsh Bansal

A good cop in a bad world. A Mumbai kingpin. Seedy bars, deserted malls, and corruption at every level. There’s a lot about this crime thriller that we’ve seen before. The more I think about Sacred Games, the clearer it is that directors Anurag Kashyap (Gangs of Wasseypur, Raman Raghav 2.0) and Vikramaditya Motwane (Udaan, Bhavesh Joshi) aren’t even trying to impress viewers with novelty in story or setting. Instead the purpose here seems to be to present what could, with lesser directors, be just another Mumbai gangster epic, and dazzle us with the execution.

Case in point: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s performance as notorious gangster Ganesh Gaitonde. At this point, Siddiqui could play this kind of character in his sleep, but while the megalomaniacal criminal he played in Raman Raghav 2.0 felt uninspired and rote, here his performance feels fresh and riveting. His dark sense of humour is so effective that I found myself laughing not just at searing observations about the ridiculous culture he found himself in, but also at some rather juvenile humour that came from creative use of common expletives.

Image result for sacred games ganesh gaitonde

The story in Sacred Games follows two parallel narrative threads. The one set in present day is directed by Motwane and follows honest cop Sartaj Singh (Saif Ali Khan) who is at a particularly low point in his life, personally and professionally, when he gets a call from Gaitonde with some rather important information. But before getting to that information, the kingpin spends quite a lot of time narrating his backstory to Sartaj through flashbacks. This ‘rise of a mob boss’ story, set a few decades in the past, forms the second, and so far, much less interesting thread directed by Kashyap. If not for Siddiqui’s dry observations and boundless energy on screen, there would be nothing interesting about the sequence of events we see here.

The reverse can be said about the present day storyline, where Khan’s performance as the troubled hero is passable, but is easily the least memorable aspect of the otherwise compelling plot. In addition to a subplot about police corruption, the episode sets up a high-stakes mystery that involves the pasts of both main characters. Motwane gives Mumbai and its people a distinct flavour in every frame, and is also mostly successful in ratcheting up the tension in those scenes that require it.

Another player in this storyline is a RAW agent played by Radhika Apte, but her role in the premiere is minimal, so it’s impossible to say much about her character or performance.

Overall, I had a blast with the episode, because even when the story wasn’t particularly engaging, the style and the atmosphere (credit to the score) were, and if nothing else, Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s performance alone made the experience one worth having, and one I highly recommend. I can’t say with any certainty that the rest of the 8-episode season will live up to the promise of this one episode, but I’m happy to say that I’m excited to check it out. Between Sacred Games and the anthology movie Lust Stories, Netflix might just replace theatres as the place Indian moviegoers visit looking for quality entertainment.

Cargo Review: A Fresh Addition to the Zombie-Apocalypse Genre

by Mishika Goel

Cargo, a captivating survival story starring the brilliant Martin Freeman makes some interesting choices along the way. To label it as just a typical survival story does not do it justice.
The story unfolds in rural Australia, where our protagonist Andy (Freeman) and his wife Kay (Susie Porter) are surviving on a houseboat, miles away from civilization, trying to provide for their baby girl, Rosie.

It doesn’t take us much time to realize that their world has been hit by a massive pandemic, and the remaining survivors are struggling to protect themselves from the zombies lurking out. The movie focuses more on the survivors’ struggles and their occasional hostility towards each other than on the usual “survivors vs. zombies” part. It also touches on the issue of unjust and cruel treatment of Aboriginal people by colonials; this is evident through the character of Vic (Anthony Hayes), who uses the indigenous people as bait to lure in zombies so he can kill them.

How far would you go to protect your loved ones? The movie doesn’t fail to deliver the answer to that question, as we see Andy go to great lengths to find a safe haven for Rosie after he himself gets infected.  We can’t help but feel sorry for him as he faces adversities. Nevertheless, his courage isn’t hindered. He continues to put on a brave front, even when he knows he has just 48 hours before he joins the leagues of “the living dead”. The movie gives Freeman many scenes to shine, and he captures every one of them in the most poignant manner.

If you are looking for a thriller, expecting huge zombie shootouts and bloodshed, Cargo isn’t for you. The plot is predictable to say the least. But the somber soundtrack underlining the mood of the movie, along with the stellar performances of Freeman and Simone Landers (who plays “Thoomi”) makes it a worthwhile watch.
The emotionally resonant closing image shows just how much Andy went through to ensure that his daughter remains safe.

I wouldn’t say it is a must-watch or one of those movies you’d want to watch again and again until you grow tired, because there’s nothing particularly special about the plot, and it tends to get a bit boring at times. But I’d recommend it if you want to watch Freeman take on something different from his usual John Watson/Bilbo Baggins kind of role.

Cargo is streaming on Netflix now.
