X Men-Dark Phoenix, Review: X-Men, ex X-Men and X-Women

X Men-Dark Phoenix, Review: X-Men, ex X-Men and X-Women Every fan knows that the X in X-Men is for Xavier, the teacher-trainer who runs a school for the differently abled (gifted with a power or force other humans do not possess). In Dark Phoenix, there is a lot of play on the ‘word’, if one may call it that, X-Men. There are X-Men, and there are ex X-Men, then there are women members of X-Men who tell Xavier disparagingly that he should consider changing the name to X-Women, in v...

The Greatest Showman, Review: Also fraudster, huckster and the King of humbug!

The Greatest Showman, Review: Also fraudster, huckster and the King of humbug! Hollywood’s great showman Cecil B. DeMille's The Greatest Show on Earth (1952) was a grandiose, over-the-big-top tribute to circuses, and won the Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Story. It was the story of the Ringling Circus and not about Phineas Taylor Barnum, who has inspired the film at hand. The Greatest Showman is about P.T. Barnum, and the reference to the film of 65 years ago is made becau...

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...

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...

Pan, Review: Flying Pantasy

Pan, Review: Flying Pantasy Once you pick up a hundred year-old children’s story and decide to invent its unwritten prequel, 3D and CGI are obvious choices. Yes, you could go overboard on both counts, but so long as you have packed it with a generous dose of thrills, and given it break-neck pace, you can make a fantasy both exciting and interesting. Pan offers above par performances, not so common in fairy-tales, mounts a huge canvas and makes sweeping brush-strokes. There are issues ab...

CHAPPiE, Review: Narcotics and Robotics

CHAPPiE, Review: Narcotics and Robotics South Africa, Canada and the USA come together in this science fiction/crime/human machines saga. To reduce the high crime rate in Johannesburg, the South African police force purchases armour-plated attack robots (Robocops?) from weapons manufacturer Tetravaal (Neill Blomkamp's 2004 short film Tetra Vaal is the basis for this film--not the Transvaal--released 11 years later), which prove highly successful and the company gets repeat orders. The rob...
