(Caveat – While I usually follow a no spoiler policy, in the opinion of the writer, the abstract, allegorical nature of this film requires hints to the themes the movie alludes to, else the viewing experience may be adversely impacted unless the viewer is ready to invest in the film twice.

Trailer Of X Men: Apocalypse

X Men Apoclaypse2016 seems to be the year of superhero clashes.

Joy (2015) Movie Review: A Little Joy

In a scene somewhere towards the middle of Joy, Jennifer Lawrence is thrust on a stage, in front of a camera to sell a self-wringing mop she invented. It is a moment of liberation, literally and figuratively; as Jennifer encapsulates the realisation her character has that this is her moment in the sun. This is possibly the only chance she has to rid herself of the routine mundane and often stressful life she lead and enter a world of success; her chance at a fairy tale ending. It is this sense of redemption and empowerment that drives Joy though as a satisfying experience despite the flaws.Continue reading “Joy (2015) Movie Review: A Little Joy”

The Hunger Games-Mockingjay Part 1 Movie Review: Sliced and Sidelined Humanity

Language: English | Running Time: 123 Minutes | Director: Francis Lawrence

The most fascinating thing about the latest epic about 21st Century’s pop queen, Katniss Everdeen’s journey is how self-aware the movie is about the position it holds in our culture. There hasn’t been a heroine who has moved not only the franchise’s unabashed lovers but also almost every audience it has managed to capture. This is a woman about whom articles are written that range from fashion to feminism and a series whose every action has somehow generated various interpretations. It helps that the franchise first arrived when the people revolutions started in the Middle East and the Americans were still playing cleanup of the mess that’s Iraq and Afghanistan. The first two movies weren’t about the revolution but the shaping up of it. There was war but not outright coups or civil unrest in the franchise. The makers, following what has become a box office norm for franchises, have split the final part into two films, making the third part an appetizer for the action to be ushered in the fourth but we have the first strands of civil unrest brewing and the politics and strategy in the war room are compelling pieces.Continue reading “The Hunger Games-Mockingjay Part 1 Movie Review: Sliced and Sidelined Humanity”

“I was amazed with what Suzanne Collins did with the books”-Julianne Moore

Q: The Hunger Games has a huge fan following, what you think of Katniss as the character?

JM: What everyone responds to in Katniss is that she carries this moral ambiguity. She doesn’t always know what the right thing to do is, so she must act more from her impulses. She’s very much about the idea that you can change your destiny – and other people’s destinies – through your actions. Continue reading ““I was amazed with what Suzanne Collins did with the books”-Julianne Moore”
