    The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021)

    How to make a teenage romance between a boy and a girl living in a small town in America interesting? You bring in a twist. The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021) that premiered today in Amazon Prime Video does this by introducing a time loop that keeps the same-day repeat over and over but only for the two. I liked the film but given the plot and good casting, it could’ve been a lot better. Mark (Kyle Allen) is a 17-year old who is studying science, but wishes to do art school finds himself waking up to the same day, with exactly the same set of events happening over…

    Passengers (2016)

    Passengers (2016) was more of a romantic film told in a sci-fi plot. In a distant future, 5000+ passengers and crew are on hibernation for 120 years on a space ship called Avalon travelling to a new colony planet. After 30 years, due to a meteor hit one passenger alone wakes up with no one else awake to help him. An intriguing plot that Director Morten Tyldum had handled differently from the treatment this genre normally gets, I liked it, but fans will be disappointed as there was little space action or any new imagination. The film is available on Netflix. Due to the hibernation pod misfunction Jim Preston (Chris…

    Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020)

    Just the previous two in the series, Bill & Ted Face the Music (2020) is also a nonsensical film that you can’t stop watching and in fact like a lot. Starring Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter this one was equally enjoyable as the first, which is uncommon for sequels. This one happens in the present. Even after trying hard for 25-years Bill and Ted haven’t come up with a song that will unite the world. The people of the future are worried and summon the two. In their efforts to salvage the grave situation they are now assisted by their brilliant daughters. The daughter roles are played well by Samara…
