Suicide Squad (2016) Movie Review

Man, it is not a good time to be a DC fan. I know this, because it’s been almost 10 years since I could have proudly proclaimed myself to be a Superman fan and not feel embarrassed (Hey, at least 2006’s Superman Returns did the character justice, when compared with the garbage fires that were… Continue reading Suicide Squad (2016) Movie Review

Stranger Things : Season 1 (2016) Netflix Series Review

Stranger Things is a show about many things. Mostly, it’s a homage to Classic 80’s Spielbergian filmmaking, and at other times it plays like a mix between Stephen King and Goosebumps by R.L. Stine (This is a better adaptation of the Goosebumps than that good-but-not great movie that released last year) with  even a dash… Continue reading Stranger Things : Season 1 (2016) Netflix Series Review

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) Movie Review

When I first saw the original 1996 Independence Day, I was around 5 or 6 years old. Needless to say, I remember being blown away by the sheer spectacle of the destruction presented in the film, I remember being enthralled by the characters – be it Will Smith’s courageous Lt. Hiller or Bill Pullman’s inspiring… Continue reading Independence Day: Resurgence (2016) Movie Review

Captain America: Civil War (2016) Movie Review

EDITORIAL: Superheroes and the Dawn of Darkness.

So, I just had one of the worst cinema-going experiences in my life this year, as I walked out of “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” a film as overblown, bloated and downright stupid as it’s overblown, bloated and downright stupid title would suggest. ( You can catch my review for the film here: https://theacutecinephile.wordpress.com/2016/03/24/batman-v-superman-dawn-of-justice-spoiler-free-movie-review/  )… Continue reading EDITORIAL: Superheroes and the Dawn of Darkness.

10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (2016) (Spoiler-Free) Movie Review

  Every so often, there comes a movie seemingly out of the blue; a movie that’s so shrouded by mystery and secrecy that when you watch it, you relish the feeling of unpredictability. You enjoy the fact that you have no idea whatsoever as to what’s going to transpire on the screen next. Last year,… Continue reading 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE (2016) (Spoiler-Free) Movie Review

BATMAN V SUPERMAN : DAWN OF JUSTICE (2016)(Spoiler-Free) Movie Review

So, I just walked out of Batman v Superman, and here are my spoiler-free thoughts: This was a bad movie. It’s as simple as that; and look, if you’re going to call me biased for saying that, then go ahead. Im merely calling it like I saw it. Also, by bad, I don’t mean not… Continue reading BATMAN V SUPERMAN : DAWN OF JUSTICE (2016)(Spoiler-Free) Movie Review
