Wonder Woman 1984: Gloves Off

Film Title

Wonder Woman 1984

Synopsis

Easily the worst movie of the year

Director

Patty Jenkins

Cast

Gal Gadot
Kristen Wilg
Chris Pine
Pedro Pascal
Robin Wright

“Wonder Woman 1984” – Dick move (or, just fast forward to the good part). Wretched. I tried to think of the most appropriate adjective to describe Wonder Woman 1984 and…wretched. And I was looking forward to this film. Yes, I know – this is a DCEU movie we are talking about; I should know better. […]

Film Title

Wonder Woman 1984

Synopsis

Wonder Woman in 1984 is a film that is underwhelming

Director

Patty Jenkins

Cast

Gal Gadot
Kristen Wilg
Chris Pine
Pedro Pascal
Robin Wright

Life is good but it can be better Maxwell Lord(played by Pedro Pascal), says the above line multiple times in the film and this can be easily used to describe the film “WW84 was decent but it could have been so much more“ Wonder Woman 1984 was a highly anticipated sequel to the first Wonder […]

Tenet (2020)

Film Title

Tenet

Synopsis

The word “tenet” must save the world

Director

Christopher Nolan

Cast

Robert Pattinson
John David Washington
Kenneth Branagh
Elizabeth Debicki

As has become customary of late, the sound mixing in Nolan’s much anticipated, much delayed film was a topic of contention, and though intentional, it seriously interfered with desired immersion. Decrypting whose desire it was optimized for—the audience’s or Nolan’s—just may yield the most succinct review possible. I could go one further and declare it […]

Dogtooth (2009)

Film Title

Dogtooth

Synopsis

One of the most ruthless movies made this century

Director

Yorgos Lanthimos

Cast

Christos Stergioglou
Michelle Valley
Angeliki Papoulia
Hristos Passalis
Mary Tsoni
Anna Kalaitdizou

The best way to see the breakthrough feature from Greek filmmaker Giorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster, The Favourite) is to go in without knowing anything about its storyline. If you have not yet seen Dogtooth, I strongly encourage you to stop reading this review and watch it first, preferably without looking up anything else about it. […]

Greenland

Film Title

Greenland

Synopsis

Yet another crummy disaster flick

Director

Ric Roman Waugh

Cast

Gerald Butler
Morena Baccarin
Roger Dale Floyd
Scott Glenn
Randal Gonzalez
Scott Poythress

“Greenland” – Wanna get away? Greenland is the perfect movie for 2020. It includes needless violence; an idiotic treatment of science, government, and the military; and the end of the world. All I wanted was a big, dumb, loud, fun disaster movie to escape into for a couple of hours. Instead, I was reminded of […]

The Bishop’s Wife: Another Look At The Making Of A Great Film

The Bishop’s Wife puts you in mind of another bit of magical fantasy, Portrait of Jenny. Both films are based on novels by Robert Nathan and both enjoy the idea that a charming almost magical personality can enter your life at the most unexpected moments. The obviously banal aspects to the story are simple. Bishop […]

An Open Letter to David Fincher

Mr Fincher, I must confess this would have been a fan letter to your father had circumstances been different. Mank enjoys a superb screenplay bearing the stamp of its subject matter. It gave us a wonderful sense of period, Hollywood, the studios of the 30s. The Paramount writer’s room had the feel of the press […]

Top Sports Betting Strategies For Beginners

Sports betting is so popular among the masses because of one apparent reason as it is the perfect combination of entertainment and an opportunity to make money. With such massive popularity of sports activities, it is evident that sports betting has its own market. A critical aspect of betting on sports is that any adult […]

A Newlywed’s Honeymoon is interrupted.

Director

George Roy Hill

Cast

Jane Fonda
Anthony Franciosa
Jim Hutton
Lois Nettleton
John McGiver

Tennessee Williams is undoubtedly best known for A Streetcar Named Desire and other Southern tragedies like The Glass Menagerie and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. His is not a name that many would associate with warm, often comedic Christmas movies like those of, say, John Hughes, Chris Columbus, or even Frank Capra. Still, his […]

Mischa Auer
John Karlsen
Rossano Brazzi

Christmas is fast approaching and another year of watching and reviewing Christmas movies is winding down. This movie is yet another recommendation from one of our fine readers. The Christmas That Almost Wasn’t should have been named The Christmas Movie That Wasn’t. So, what went wrong with this wonderful Santa Save Christmas Movie? The short […]
