    The King’s Man (2021)

    The King’s Man (2021) is the third instalment of the fictitious British spy organization and is the prequel to Kingsman (2014) and Kingsman 2 (2017). The story happens around World War I, and the events that led to the formation of the secret organization that saves the world. Unlike the first movie, this one was routine and lacked any of the humour that made it popular. The film gets my Raw rating. Ralph Fiennes comes as Duke of Oxford and the founder of King’s Man, he has done his role well. As Polly Watkins, the maid to Duke of Oxford and a trained fighter, Gemma Arterton has given a memorable…

    Feeling thoroughly entertained by a sixty years old film is proof of its timeless storytelling. The Apartment (1960) is one of those movies that wrote the textbook on the rom-com genre that’s popular in Hollywood to date.

    Clear History (2013)

    Clear History (2013) is one of those simplest comedy films that don’t try hard and just coasts along – not being bad and neither being good. A good man with bad luck planning to take revenge on his former business partner. The screenplay starts well, but then completely loses its way, to regain a bit in the climax. Benefitting from a good cast, it manages to get a Raw rating and is available on Disney+ Hotstar. Larry David, from Whatever works (2009) and co-creator of Seinfeld, is the protagonist. First, he comes as Nathon Flomm, an eccentric marketing expert for an electric car startup. After a disagreement over the name…

    Don’t Look Up (2021)

    Don’t Look Up (2021) is a satirical take on how science is received by the American elite in a post-truth world. It is about two talented astronomers warning the POTUS about a comet that is fast heading towards our planet and the impending destruction and the reaction they get for the news from the general public. Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence the movie presents important points for our times to ponder, but as a film, it fails to impress as the screenplay after the first hour comes out dreary & repetitive. Available on Netflix, it gets a Raw rating. Watch the film till the very end; After the credit roll,…
