The Expendables movies so far have had a common plot line – a group of mercenaries doing dirty jobs for CIA who take on a common villain and walk away in style after saving the day.Continue reading “The Expendables 3 (2014) Movie Review: Flawed Yet Entertaining”

After some serious brainstorming, I could come up with these instances/purposes that warrant a remake.Continue reading “Nee Enge En Anbe Movie Review: Is This ‘Desi’ Kahaani Brilliant Enough?”
