Da 5 Bloods

How to whip, hiss, cuss, sweat and bleed in a Spike Lee Joint and then turn that to eleven, in Da 5 Bloods. The co-writer and director Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods is a moral argument, above all. Lee is mature enough to argue in that very field. And smart enough to know that simply... Continue Reading →

Dune

How to be afraid of even discussing, let alone, criticizing the content of a magician's work, in Dune. The writer and director David Lynch's Dune is a potential candidate for the ultimate list of films that remains to be desired. I don't know how to describe the film. Let's just talk about the result, then.... Continue Reading →

Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2

How to fall under the norms of the genre and the tone of the film, in Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2. They are trying way too hard to make us laugh. Jokes are forceful, punches are pulled unnecessarily and physical comedy is dragged too much, overstaying its welcome and milking, I don’t know... Continue Reading →

Shrek Universe

How to promote as you're against the stereotypical agenda and fuel your film with that very agenda, in Shrek Universe. The Shrek Universe suffers from a very common disease.

The writer... Continue Reading →

Logan Lucky

All hail, the lord that shows us, feeds us, moves us, what we know, think and wish a heist should look like. Eccentric characters, page-turning one-liners and good old music. Steven Soderberg’s Logan Lucky is a reincarnation for the genre that he aced decades ago and what his perception is towards those flicks in these current... Continue Reading →

Pulp Fiction

This does show that pen is, indeed, mightier than sword.  Pulp Fiction has considerably been Quentin Tarantino’s career defining project and it is raw and honest. And maybe that’s why it holds a place in one of those rare milestones that can and does hold up against time. But screenwriters Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avery... Continue Reading →
