Is Wonder Woman Too Wonderful?

I This summer, Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman made history. II If for whatever reason, Marvel or DC decides that my life would make for an interesting superhero movie, the main character would be 16-year-old like any other 16-year old: fangirling, occasionally struggling with self esteem, discovering her identity, all the cliché stuff…and then one day she might wake up and realize that she has some … Continue reading Is Wonder Woman Too Wonderful?

La La Land | movie review

Here’s to the ones who dream, foolish as they may seem. La La Land is going to win Oscar, y’all. Just saying. It is everything I dreamed it to be and more. Not only is every frame gorgeous, the soundtrack is also amazing. It was soft but not corny,  passionate but well-controlled, twinkly but not artsy-fartsy. It was just right. In case you still haven’t heard … Continue reading La La Land | movie review

🎬❄️Movies to Watch over the Holidays!❄️🎬

Nocturnal Animals (already released) So my friend and I had the following conversation. “Yo, what’s Nocturnal Animals about?” “Dark facts… One finding out the dark side of oneself… I just feel like it’s Oscar worthy.” That might sound absolutely ignorant and generic, but that IS why I want to see Nocturnal Animals even though I don’t even know what it’s about… (and also it IS … Continue reading 🎬❄️Movies to Watch over the Holidays!❄️🎬

Finally, a Marvel Movie that’s not Self Serious |Doctor Strange Movie Review

Duh, I went to see Doctor Strange, because it is Benedict Cumberbatch💗. But I ended up loving the movie as a whole, and I’d even say that it restored my faith in Marvel. It’s a superhero movie that showcases sorcery, mandalas and multi-universe theories- very trippy elements, not easy to handle. It could have well turned out to be a shady motivational colouring book. But it did not, … Continue reading Finally, a Marvel Movie that’s not Self Serious |Doctor Strange Movie Review

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Movie Review

It’s hard to stay peculiar these days. A Time magazine review said that Tim Burton had lost his magical touch, that the movie adaptation of Ransom Rigg’s YA novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children had “gnarled-vine logic” and no plot. I beg to differ.The new movie Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was stunning, witty and managed to make the story so much MORE coherent and … Continue reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Movie Review
