Allied (2016) Movie Review: The Spy Who Loved Me?

Sometimes one may have the fortune of being together with the girl/boy of one’s dreams and yet be able to do nothing about it. Maybe work/call of duty could be the villain over here, or perhaps even fate or both. Imagine if you were to go through such a phase yourself and strangely find yourself feeling elated later when fate itself provides you an opportunity to express your love and it’s reciprocated as well. That would feel wonderful is it not? The moments that follow would certainly be nothing less than the sweetest of your dreams and time would assume to have just frozen, even as you and your beloved find yourselves lost in the throngs of love. With all this happening and with things looking too good to be true, what if some dark clouds were to float around the two of you, catching you both completely unaware. Even as you are still settling into this lovely new phase in your life if some doubts were to creep in for no fault of yours and yet casting some aspersions on the relationship, would it not be a major blow? How would one go on to deal with the same in this case?Continue reading “Allied (2016) Movie Review: The Spy Who Loved Me?”

Maleficent Movie Review- Staggeringly Underwhelming

To take a wildly popular fairy tale and retell it is always a challenge. It gets tougher if one intends to recast the tale, tell it out in a new point of view, contrary to what is popularly known and liked. With Maleficent, Disney attempts a live action retelling of its own classic Sleeping Beauty through the eyes of the Evil witch Maleficent. In the process, we have the evil witch who curses an infant girl out of jealousy recast as an empathetic sensitive vulnerable woman wronged by a scheming king. We are also given a new meaning to the “true love’s kiss” that brings Sleeping beauty back to her senses, in effect continuing with the Frozen trend of correcting gender imagery in children’s stories.Continue reading “Maleficent Movie Review- Staggeringly Underwhelming”
