Wind River- Review

Wind River A film by Taylor Sheridan, Wind River brings attention to the dangerous lives of Native American woman, and life on a reservation. With Jeremey Renner and Elizabeth Olsen, this movie never had a dull moment. Not once did I wonder how much time it had left, or even steer away in my mind to think about something else. However, some very violent parts of the film were extemely hard to watch. The story was powerful and on multiple occasions I found myself moved to tears.  O...

MOONLIGHT -- the Guilty Conscience Oscar Winner

Summary: Highly overrated minor film that won the guilty conscience Oscar of 2017 *** This review may contain spoilers *** I finally caught up with this year's Questionable Oscar winner, "Black Moonlight" last night. in Budapest. Like everyone else I was curious to see what all the noise around this picture was all about.  It turned out to be a fairly attention holding film, amateurishly made, but well acted with a good story, and certainly not quite as bad as that piece o...

Alien: Covenant, Review by Siraj Syed: Paradise morphed

Alien: Covenant, Review by Siraj Syed: Paradise morphed Five years after Prometheus, this film is the second instalment in the Alien prequel series, and the sixth one in the Alien film series, as well as the third one to be directed by Ridley Scott. Prometheus was his second directorial effort in the series. He was 42 when he directed Alien (1979) and is in his 79th year, when Covenant is releasing. Imagine making a prequel 38 years after the original! Alien Covenant is an interesting film in...

Movie memories, by Siraj Syed—X-Men-The Last Stand (2006): Fire and ice

Movie memories, by Siraj Syed—X-Men-The Last Stand (2006): Fire and ice X-Men and X-Women in all their glory, with abilities that, together, are capable of almost anything, like battling forces of the government of the USA, and each other, in this threequel to X-Men (2000) and X-2 (2003). What would have been a trilogy, has continued into 2017. Having three to four years in between the successive franchise films works for the project, even in later editions, though there was a spate du...

Movie memories, by Siraj Syed—Brokeback Mountain (2005): Rough terrain, smooth ride

Movie memories, by Siraj Syed—Brokeback Mountain (2005): Rough terrain, smooth ride Friendship between the two protagonists of Brokeback Mountain turns to a homosexual relationship that survives their respective conventional marriages and fatherhoods. Director Ang Lee tackles this taboo theme, placed in the Wyoming of half a century ago, and treats it with old-world unravelling, at a gentle pace and accompanied by slow background score. The dialogue is highly accentuated and mumbled, wh...

The Guardians of the Galaxy-Vol. 2, Review by Siraj Syed: Turn-up the volume

The Guardians of the Galaxy-Vol. 2, Review by Siraj Syed: Turn-up the volume TGOTG goes back to 1980, when Peter’s father was courting his mother, and then comes to present day, when he s about 35. Like Vol. 1, the film is a riot of colour, sci-fi (visuals) and hi-fi (sounds), even celebrating its own prowess in painting the screen with an explosion of VFX hues, like a futurist child’s dream display of fire-works. It also taps upon latest sound techniques to run music, SFX and dia...

Movie memories, by Siraj Syed--The Bourne Supremacy (2004): Supreme racy

Movie memories, by Siraj Syed--The Bourne Supremacy (2004): Supreme racy As I write this flashback review, five Jason Bourne films have been released, of which The Bourne Supremacy was the second. The lead character and plot premises are all based on the milieu created by Robert Ludlum’s action-thriller novels about CIA agent Jason Bourne and the Agency’s use of his skills in executing murderous missions, after subjecting him to drug-induced psychogenic amnesia. This one begins t...

Smurfs-The Lost Village, Review by Siraj Syed: Tidal waves and tiny caves

Smurfs-The Lost Village, Review by Siraj Syed: Tidal waves and tiny caves Smurfy’s Law: The Forbidden Forest is the forbidden forest, and there’s good reason for the entry ban—you might not come back alive. After watching the latest Smurf movie, you will not only get back alive, but happy and bemused. If you belong to the under 12 age-group, you might even enjoy the thrills and frills much more than your older brethren. The Lost Village (third in the Smurfs franchise) is ne...

The Zookeeper’s Wife, Review by Siraj Syed: Of animals, animal instincts and humanity above all

The Zookeeper’s Wife, Review by Siraj Syed: Of animals, animal instincts and humanity above all A wife, a husband their zoo and the Jews. Unlikely ingredients of a film seen by us critics on the eve of Hitler’s birthday. And yet, The Zookeeper’s Wife movie survives some uneven narrative and unimaginative camerawork to settle down into a compelling, if understated, holocaust tale that more than deserves a cursory viewing. It begins as The Life of Pi, moves on to join Schindle...

Boss Baby review by Siraj Syed: These guys sure have bawls!

The Boss Baby review by Siraj Syed: These guys sure have bawls! Cutie cutie. Coochie coochie. Cooey cooey. Too muchy muchy! Fun, funny. Listen, honey, it’s ‘Big brother’ v/s Baby brother. Baby Corp v/s Puppy Corp. It’s a gooey gooey, gagaey gagaey mess of gawpaw, but so adorable, aw. Aw-struck. Amazing animation. Hilarious declamation. A good outing for the vacation. Calling all babies, baby brothers and sisters, parents, baby-sitters, corporate ladder-climbers, carto...

Siraj Syed reviews Before I Fall: Death gives her a second chance, and a third, and a ... It is amazing how an old ‘doha’ (lessons and ethics of life, in simple poetic couplet form) from Indian folk literature has taken the shape of an American movie in 2017. Moral: We are aware of only one life, and to make the most of it, we must perform all our good deeds before it is too late. The doha, by secular Saint KabeerDaas goes, “Kaal karey so aaj kar, Aaj karey so ab’, whi...

Siraj Syed reviews Beauty and the Beast: A veritable feast

Siraj Syed reviews Beauty and the Beast: A veritable feast Beauty and the Beast is a treat for young and old alike, with generous doses of humour and an enchanting musical score to go with it. It is not often that you see a kettle, a tea-cup and saucer, a dressing stool, a wardrobe, a piano, an antique clock, a floating, curvaceous  plumage and a candelabra (no, that’s definitely not a typo)  share screen space with the titular duo, that happen to be Beauty and Beast in this c...

The Kong Show: KONG SKULL ISLAND, Hiddleston, Larson, Jackson Deliver “Bigly”

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent When the original KING KONG was released by RKO in March of 1933, some of the trade ads included a tie-in between Kong’s big bang box office receipts and the failed banks of the Great Depression roaring back to profitability. It was a nostalgia sell, a heart-tug for a pre-code Hollywood monster romp, the likes and scale of which had never been seen on the silver screen. In a quick recap, Merian C. Cooper was turned down at Paramount, th...

Siraj Syed reviews Logan: All Gore

Siraj Syed reviews Logan: All Gore Just when we had begun to think that desensitisation was near complete, and violence in American films held no more depths to plumb, there comes Logan. For its genre, it’s a triumph of sorts. For the distanced critic, his worst fears could have come true. Unless, of course, he turns it into a cathartic but guilty experience. Decapitation with a cap-it-all D is but one of the milder forms of blood and gore strewn across the two hours plus footage of L...

Siraj Syed reviews Lion: Soaring emotions, roaring cinema

Siraj Syed reviews Lion: Soaring emotions, roaring cinema Lion is the tale of mothers and sons, brothers and sisters, separation and unification, brimming with humanity, and yet not fighting shy of tilting the camera down, to capture the grim realities of crime and perversion in a cruel and miserable world. All those who frown upon technology as the bane of the 21st century, here’s a glorious tribute to the great service it can and is meant to render, and does, as evidenced in the film....

Siraj Syed reviews John Wick-Chapter 2: His WICked WICKed ways First tell me, do you have problems with one man shooting down one two hundred, over five encounters, forty each per encounter? Is it fine with you that every time Wick shoots, it’s bull’s eye, while all the shots fired by the Wicked men and women miss the target, and when they do hit pay-dirt, they bounce off his armour? Fine? No problems? Welcome to John Wick 2, a treat for you. This is Chapter 2, so you must recal...

Siraj Syed reviews Hidden Figures: US-Russia space race & black women’s amazing grace Did you know that three black women played crucial roles in NASA’s space programme, and without them, John Glenn would not be remembered as the first American astronaut to make it back to earth, but as a young man who got burnt to cinders, along with his spacecraft, by the heat generated on his vehicle’s re-entry into earth’s orbit? This is the true story of the rather unimaginati...
