Film Review: The Nice Guys

TNG_Day_#34_12122014-131.dng

One of the key aspects to a film’s success, especially if said film is a comedy, is the chemistry between its main actors, and I think that is what makes The Nice Guys work. That and its ludicrous script. Continue reading

MCM Comic Con London May 2016

Eisenberg Rauch and Nayyar

Comic Con, once more. It seems like I’ve out-grown its craziness, because this year I felt more relaxed as I walked through the halls of the Excel Centre –although I still had a few moments in which I wanted to gruesomely murder some people who pushed me, hit me with their tails or poked me with their horns. Continue reading

Film Review: Eddie the Eagle

I hate it when people treat a ‘feel-good film’ as something that can’t be taken seriously. Granted, that’s sort of the way I went to watch Eddie the Eagle. But like Eddie himself, this movie is not fooling around, and it’s there to be taken seriously indeed. Continue reading

I have always been a fan of sequels that you don’t expect. You know, as opposed to those sequels that are already on pre-production before the first one has even been released. Continue reading

Film Review: The Revenant

For the past couple of months, I have been worrying about one thing: Leo’s Oscar. To be precise, I have been worrying about the fact that the Academy might be about to give him the long-awaited award simply because “it’s about time” instead of having rewarded him in the past for the great performances he has given. Continue reading

Film Review: The Big Short

the big short - carell gosling

I have never understood financial gibberish. Not because I’m stupid, but because I was never into maths or anything of the sort, so one would think that a film that spends its two hours talking about the stock market and mortgages wouldn’t be engaging from my point of view. Continue reading

Film Review: In the Heart of the Sea

IN THE HEART OF THE SEA

Here’s something I must confess about myself: I have an irrational fear of whales. It’s always been like that, I just can’t explain it (though I’ll blame Pinocchio for it). I have always been wary of sea creatures in general, but the thought of swimming underwater and suddenly come across a massive creature with weird teeth has always haunted me in my dreams. I know, how on Earth would I find a whale in Southeast Spain, where you can walk more than 2 km into the sea and the water is still knee-deep? Whatever, they creep me out. Continue reading

The Christmas Films I Grew Up With

Without even realising it, Christmas has almost arrived and it’s only two weeks away, so I figured I should post something festive –it’s still a while until the Doctor Who special, anyway. Continue reading
