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…

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…

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…

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…

Movie Review: Raazi

Meghana Gulzar’s making a name for herself in tackling the tough topics people talk about, wonder about but don’t always want to dramatize for a Bollywood consumer; their usual diet being movie that have 5 songs, dancing on mountains and always a happy ending. With Raazi she achieves a narrative that doesn’t falter, she touches…

Movie Review: Veere Di Wedding

I almost didn’t watch this movie. Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor aren’t quite the draw for me personally. Add to it, the reviews had been less than stellar and I didn’t want to watch a badly made chick-flick when I could use those 2 hours to sleep or read instead…color me pleasantly surprised! Now this movie…

Movie Review: Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety

First question? Why did I watch it and 2) Why am I bothering to review it either? Answers: 1) My kid’s school still hasn’t opened so am just gasping for things that distract me and we’re both (mother and son) tripping on Bom Diggy Diggy  song from the movie so why not? 2) I just…
