• Fear Street: 1666

    Fear Street: 1666

    Cheesy at best

  • Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    ★★★½

    I gotta admit that this movie is a bit overrated as its screenplay lacks intrigue and mystery; however, the performances delivered by Kaluuya and Stanfield were so brilliant that giving a lower rating would be unforgivable.

  • Watching This Movie Is a Crime!
  • The Woman in the Window

    The Woman in the Window

    ★★½

    Huge disappointment! Even though the acting was pretty neat, the scenario was too predictable and flawed, and the direction was not much of a good job either. I think Joe Wright should stick to making period pieces as he excels at them.

  • Bad Boy Bubby

    Bad Boy Bubby

    ★★★★

    Somehow reminiscent of Kaspar Hauser, Bubby is the product of nature without nurture. Left to his own devices in a world entirely unknown, he resorts to the couple of irrelevant and at times inappropriate phrases he's heard used to communicate with people. This naturally results in awkward and troubling encounters that both entertain and evoke sympathy within the audience.
    I did not expect to end up liking this movie as it opened with quite harrowing scenes; however, the following turn of events brought about intriguing points and called for deeper analysis on the idiosyncratic protagonist of the story.

  • The Luminaries

    The Luminaries

    This gotta be the most boring and sleep-inducing show I've ever seen in my entire life.

  • Red

    Red

    I was a kid when I first watched this movie, and back then, portraying issues such as domestic violence and dysfunctional families was considered to be a daring act; therefore, Jeyrani's Red became a thing of the time, especially the song performed in it. Now, as an adult viewer, I find the performances ridiculous; the editing awful, and above all, the story flawed.

  • Framing Britney Spears

    Framing Britney Spears

    ★★½

    Could have been better if more reliable sources were interviewed.

  • Malcolm & Marie

    Malcolm & Marie

    Pretentious, lame, inconsistent, the movie even fails to uphold its intended message: Be authentic!

  • Saint Maud

    Saint Maud

    ★★★★

    "May the Lord bless your soul and never waste your pain."

    The central character of this beautiful little film is a strong believer in the "God works in mysterious ways" philosophy.
    She is unable to picture a life in which suffering and demise are not part of a grand design, but natural phenomena that occur arbitrarily.
    "Saint Maud" exquisitely demonstrates how detrimental this belief can be, at both individual as well as collective levels.

  • Sybil

    Sybil

    ★★★

    Stunning performance by Field, solid scenario, and befitting score; however, I did not find the ending very satisfying, and it seemed more like a fairy tale or sth.

  • The Night

    The Night

    Unacceptably embarrassing representation of Iran's potential for cinematic productions
