Upload (TV Series) is the new sci-fi available on Amazon. The story revolves around Nathan (Robbie Amell) who dies in a car accident and gets his consciousness uploaded to a virtual resort where he can live for eternity and connect with the external world. There was little original in the show, feels like an extended version of the episode of “San Junipero” from the famous Black Mirror, and, that makes the show less engaging. There were many logic gaps which were not covered at all: Why people living in the Upload can’t work when they can actually eat, use the…

Space Force (TV series) is a brand new comedy TV show, a Netflix original. It is made by the star of The Office (USA) Steven Carell and Greg Daniels, the creator of The Office, SNL, The Simpsons, and many other popular shows. The story is about the newly created (sixth) branch of United States Armed Forces, named US Space Force, the unit is in a chaotic race to attain space supremacy over their adversaries. I found the show to be average, nothing noteworthy or engaging. The show highlights how incompetent the current US administration has become, especially the POTUS (President…

Spy Intervention (2020) is a comedy spy film, that was pointless & goofy; if you tolerate that, then the film can be a bit entertaining. I can’t say the film to be a thriller, as there was no mystery anywhere. Corey Gage (Drew Van Acker) is a spy working for an unknown Government secret agency and along with his buddy, Smuts is on the chase for a weapons dealer. In one occasion, he meets a pretty lady Pam Grayson (), falls in love for her, resigns his job and settles down as a family man. That’s when Smuts and others…

For a long time this film was in my watchlist – Searching (2018). It is about Korean single-parent, David Kim (played by John Cho) living in San Jose, California on a desperate search of her daughter Margot Kim (played by Michelle La) gone missing. This is an interesting thriller that has quite a few unexpected twists including the climax. The film starts with the Windows XP Wallpaper :-) Most of the film revolves around what’s on Kim’s and Margot’s computers. A very different narration style to what we have seen normally. Director Aneesh Chaganty has succeeded in keeping the screen…
