Creature Movie Bloglet

As a reward for a decent first term report card TO was given the permission to watch The Meg. It’s a PG-13 movie for what reason I know not, but ostensibly to ward off screams from kids. That the screams maybe of joy seems to have escaped the censors. Anyhoo, the brat turned into a proper…

Movie Review: Aquaman

Aquaman is totally worth the money because for the price of one movie, you can view a whole bunch of movies because there’s hardly anything that Aquaman hasn’t borrowed from. Let’s start with Jason Momoa shall we? The fresh faced young man from Baywatch Hawaii morphed into Khal Drogo and then Arthur Curry/Aquaman and made…

Don’t Have Kids…

but be around them. Children are Nature’s balm. They may come across as incomprehensible, demanding, whiny brats who you often fantasize about leaving on someone else’s doorstep, but kids have something we end up losing as adults- an ability to laugh at the silliest and simplest of things. Take a little boy who’s recently become…

Movie Review: Andhadhun

In a nutshell? This movie is a mad cap caper. Andhadhun translates to Blind Tune or a state of being slapdash and both definitions fit the scenarios perfectly. Led by Ayushmaan Khurana and Tabu in their usual capable ways, the movie starts out strong in the first half but the director ends up dropping the…

Movie Review: Baywatch

Unless you have a few bottles of booze handy OR are supremely bored OR just want to test the waters and see at what point you say ‘enough’, don’t watch this movie. Reasons are given below in no particular order but with a lot of feeling: You will never get back those 116 minutes that…

Of Romance and Fried Eyeballs

Four years ago I wrote this blog post and I’m still laughing about it. Sometimes all the way to the loo because when Red ends up being funny inadvertently, it’s bad for my bladder. One of the biggest yarns ever spun in my home is about Red getting a 92 in Hindi many moons ago….

Movie Review: The Meg

Ever since I was a cute little girl and got introduced to killer sharks by my semi-misguided parents who thought it was ok to take a 2 year to a creature flick; I have sought out shark movies. I have watched the good ones viz Jaws, Deep Blue Sea, The Shallows and its rather limited ilk. I…

Movie Review: Karwaan

I’d like to start off by saying- Go watch it. It may not be something you’d want to watch again and again. But you’d like it if ,you did watch it just the once. This is what Karwaan isn’t: It’s not a screwball comedy a la It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World It’s not…

A Peppy Earworm

“Dale a tu cuerpo alegría Macarena Que tu cuerpo es pa’ darle alegría why cosa buena Dale a tu cuerpo alegría, Macarena Hey Macarena” The offspring has been introduced to the joys of Macarena courtesy Hotel Transylvania-3. It was a silly movie with funky songs popping up at silly places but you know kids…they love…

Movie Review: Skyscraper

Will Sawyer is no John Maclane. And Skycraper is no Die Hard.  But be as that may, it has the potential to be an entertaining movie despite having to live up to the rep of movies of the same ilk having scored BIG at the box office and becoming cult classics. There are mainly 3…
