Deadpool Review: Ryan Reynolds’ pansexual superhero is needy, insane and extremely hilarious

Deadpool Review: Ryan Reynolds’ pansexual superhero is needy, insane and extremely hilarious

The meta the better. This seems to be the mission statement for this horribly violent, shriekingly self-aware and macabre Marvel super-antihero movie. It’s the funniest Ryan Reynolds film since Van Wilder: Party Liaison, and incidentally finally confirms the hall-of-fame status for Richard Curtis’s “I’m just a girl standing in front of a boy…” line from Notting Hill. Deadpool  is absorbed in irony, zinging and stinging with pop-culture jokes; it starts by spoofing the generic lineup in the credits,…

Game Of Thrones Season 7 – Episode 7: ‘The Dragon And The Wolf’ Review

Game Of Thrones Season 7 – Episode 7: ‘The Dragon And The Wolf’ Review

The season 7 finale of Game of Thrones was one of the most important, insane, and ultimately satisfying episodes HBO has given us to date. Between major reveals and the falling of the Wall, this was the perfect episode to wrap up a too-brief season, and to usher in the final stretch. I won’t say it was a perfect episode. It suffered from some of the same issues the rest of the season has suffered from, namely…

Game of Thrones Episode 7: The Dragon and the Wolf: Betrayal, Nudity, and Unexpected Twists

Game of Thrones Episode 7: The Dragon and the Wolf: Betrayal, Nudity, and Unexpected Twists

A fully operational Ice Dragon, Littlefinger bloodily hoisted on the sharp end of his own machinations, a hastily-undressed Jon and Daenerys rocking the boat… The longest Game of Thrones episode yet was also among the most jaw-dropping and gore-packed. At the end of a overwhelming yet uneven season, The Dragon and the Wolf was also a stirring return to Westeros’ first principles as the Hollywood bombast of recent weeks was replaced by a solid 1 hour and…

Becoming a decent person requires an awful lot of dying, Happy Death Day movie is a snappy horror-comedy with a gentle romantic spine. Happy Death…

Groundhog Day movie: The Perfect Comedy

Groundhog Day movie: The Perfect Comedy

Bill Murray once called the movie of Groundhog Day movie being the best work he has ever done. 20 years after its release, the movie is still doing great job of taking your breath away by making you laugh so hard. “We don’t have forever”, and that’s one of the lessons of Groundhog Day full movie, but director David O. Russell happily slips in and out of voices and lines from the movie with his…

Bill Murray Battles Pittsburgh Time Warp in Groundhog Day movie

In Groundhog Day movie, playing a formerly smug weatherman who finds himself condemned to relive one Feb. 2 over and over again in Punxsutawney, Pa., Bill Murray explains his feelings to two bleary-eyed, beer-drinking locals. “What would you do if you were stuck in one place and everything was exactly the same and nothing that you did mattered?” he asks despairingly. The two strangers listen very sympathetically. They didn’t have to be trapped by a…

Cardboard Gangsters Movie Review – well performed and superbly directed, but desperately needs a story with more invention

Cardboard Gangsters  Movie Review – well performed and superbly directed, but desperately needs a story with more invention

Four films in and director Mark O’Connor (Between The Canals, Stalker, King of the Travellers) has delivered the film he’s been threatening to, one that finally realises that early promise. Bursting with raw realism, Cardboard Gangsters full movie is a confident and visceral film. While O’Connor has yet to shed his early Scorsese influences (there’s a Raging Bull wall-punching moment), and this outing veers into an Irish Boyz In The Hood territory, this crime drama…

Picture of Beauty Movie Review – A nice surprise

Picture of Beauty Movie Review – A nice surprise

A voyeuristic, yet sensually suppressed painter commissioned by a Madam for her brothel. Two young friends discovering feelings for one another. Corrupt police officers and morally corrupt religious zealots. Arranged marriages. Appreciation for art. Gorgeous girls in period dresses… It’s almost like De Sade, Franco, Pasolini and Borowczyk are having a brain storm session wherever they winded up after death. Fine. That’s taking it a little bit too far, but I can safely claim as…

Bring it On Movie Review: Strong, Modest and Honest Behind All the Giddy Cheer

Bring it On Movie Review: Strong, Modest and Honest Behind All the Giddy Cheer

Since Bring It On is a film about high school cheerleaders, you might expect whatever story it has to be a flimsy scaffolding for the unapologetic exploitation of young girls in short skirts – a slice of diet cheesecake, a ”Coyote Not Quite So Ugly.” And you definitely wouldn’t be wrong. Kirsten Dunst, who plays Torrance Shipman, the strong, dynamic captain of a Southern California pompom squad, shows her bellybutton in nearly every frame of…

Even Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t save Passengers movie 2016 from becoming a disaster

Even Chris Pratt and Jennifer Lawrence couldn’t save Passengers movie 2016 from becoming a disaster

There are so many aspects along the way when the stranded-in-space sci-fi Passengers movie 2016 which is certainly not that good a film, could have been made different and become united. You can almost definitely catch the sound of the Greek chorus of studio executives as you watch: “Sure, sure. But let’s hear me out: What if they fell in love instead?” As because of a technical issue in his intergalactic cruise ship on a…

The Danish Girl Movie Review: A Little Too Much Gloss

The Danish Girl Movie Review: A Little Too Much Gloss

The Danish Girl is based on the true story of a pioneering recipient of gender reassignment surgery and on David Ebershoff’s book of the same name. The movie, directed by Tom Hooper, constantly emphasizes the dimension of acting in gender identity, and that making it but too much blurring performances of its cast with pantomime. In 2015, transgender themes and characters achieved their greatest media visibility yet. On TV, we have series such as Transparent and Boy Meets Girl….

The Danish Girl free online: An Emotional Story about a Transgender Pioneer

The Danish Girl free online: An Emotional Story about a Transgender Pioneer

The Danish Girl free online movie, directed by Tom Hooper, is a story of individual’s struggle that is also a portrait of a marriage. In this respect, The Danish Girl free online resembles The King’s Speech, and in that case, the union of George VI and Elizabeth was the foundation on which the tale of George’s elocutionary striving was built. The marriage is bohemian rather than aristocratic, but the stakes are every bit as profound and…

Exit Music: True Romance 1993 full movie

In the final scene of True Romance (1993) full movie, Alabama drives herself and her injured beloved Clarence on a high way passing a sign reading “Last U.S. Exit, Mexican Border 5 miles”. In that very moment, the music shifts from the ominous strains accompanying the chaotic final shootout in the Beverly Ambassador to the light and playful leitmotif that has been present throughout the rest of the movie. The score was written by Hans Zimmer…
