Star Trek Beyond (2016) Movie Review

Thou’ must ruin a good thing and that’s for sure.

After two stupendous movies where Chris Pine & Zachary Quinto literally flipped the entire Star Trek fan base for doubting them as Kirk & Spock, it has all come crashing down in the end. Money can’t buy class and this movie highlights that. How else could you explain the fact that Paramount spent something to the tune of $185 million and gave a guy who made Fast and the Furious to make a movie with a history spanning back to 50 years?Continue reading “Star Trek Beyond (2016) Movie Review”

Mandela Long Walk to Freedom (2013) Movie Review: A Fitting Tribute to one of the Greatest Leaders of Our Times

Mandela Long Walk to FreedomTo write about a film which is a biopic on one of the greatest leaders of the 20th century, having deep political undertones is kind of tough especially when one’s knowledge of the apartheid struggle is limited to Wikipedia.

Thor: The Dark World Movie Review: Simply Amazing

The curse of the sequels might be broken, but let’s not jump the gun on that. For a change there is finally a sequel which if not exceeds at least matches up to the first part. Take a bow people behind the scenes…take a bow.

The story begins with a race of beings known as Dark Elves who tried to send the universe into darkness by using the “Aether”. But Asgardians would have none of that and stopped them from doing that. But somehow their evil leader, Malekith (Christopher Eccleston) escapes and vows to return when the time is right. Now the warriors from Asgard have no clue how to destroy the Aether and since it can’t be destroyed, they try to hide it. (Uh-oh!)Continue reading “Thor: The Dark World Movie Review: Simply Amazing”
