1. “One Night in Miami”
Directed by Academy Award-winning actress Regina King, “One Night in Miami” is a powerful film that fictionalizes a historic meeting between Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke. Set in the turbulent 1960s, the movie explores themes of civil rights, identity, and friendship, delivering a thought-provoking and emotionally charged cinematic experience.
2. “Sound of Metal”
Riz Ahmed delivers a breathtaking performance in “Sound of Metal,” portraying a heavy metal drummer who loses his hearing. The film takes viewers on an emotional journey as the protagonist navigates the challenges of accepting his new reality while finding solace in the world of deaf culture. This moving drama has received critical acclaim and numerous award nominations.
A modern classic of the sci-fi genre, Villeneuve subverts expectations at every stage and turns a theme fundamental to human existence into something even deeper. A story that at first glance appears to be an innocuous tale of aliens arriving on Earth as they have in so many works of entertainment before molds into a tale about the long-overdue ‘arrival’ of empathy and transparency in communication within the people directly involved in the events of the movie. The nuance with which aliens are portrayed as peaceful people is largely unheard of. Amy Adams steals the show in the acting department, giving a layered, intellectual, and deeply emotional performance, while Jeremy Renner, Forest Whitaker, and the heptapods play second fiddle admirably. Overall, this film is an absolute masterclass in how to narrate a story that becomes much more than just the sum of its parts. The only thing holding it back is its sagging musical score, but that can in no way take away from this magical work of cinema. Arrival is one of the greatest works of cinema of the 21st century so far.
4. “The 5th Wave”
Personally, I loved the movie. Just finished reading the first book which made me want to rewatch the movie and I think it’s great. The book is definitely a little slow and the flashback technique of writing is my favourite.
Anyway, this isn’t a review of the book, but the movie. In my opinion, the movie is actually really close to the book which is a bonus for the book enthusiasts. The movie itself was so entertaining. It had action, intense situations, and emotional scenes, and unlike the book, I actually cared about the scenes that didn’t involve Cassie.
The only thing I’d change about it is to expand more on Evan and Cassie’s relationship. The movie Deco skims over it very quickly, even though in the book they spend a few weeks together where they develop their connection.
There is no doubt that Creed is a passionate love letter to the original 1976 film, which in itself is a poetic love story about fighting the good fight.
Although boxing is once again the central theme here, it’s never just been about the fight but more about what you as an individual are fighting for…
Directed and co-written by Ryan Coogler, Creed delivers on everything that a great boxing film should, and represents a full return to form for Rocky Balboa!
Creed is exhilarating, inspiring, emotional, beautifully acted, and brilliantly choreographed while also honoring the previous Rocky films lovingly.
6. “All the Old Knives”
A very interesting plot and since it is from a novel I understand the plot twists and the pace that it travels and takes you along. Chris Pine and Thandwe Newton were brilliant and the chemistry sure played a major role, unlike many recent movies where romantic scenes were dull and very cliche. A novel turning into a movie is always fulfilling as unlike movie scripts, hardly any loose ends could be found in novels. That way this is a wholesome movie and everyone did a good job.
This movie was amazing. There’s so much to be said about it that I don’t even know what to say. High quality and naturalistic acting (as expected from this cast), relatable characters, and story (most of us have either been through the experience of one of the characters or have known someone who has). I have waited years to watch this film- since the time it came out – because I have been a huge fan and admirer of Denzel Washington since I was a youth, and it was worth it. I wish this review could encapsulate the feelings I have for this work, but I can still only conclude with how fantastic it was.
8. “The Lost City of Z”
This movie is about finding the lost city of z and I love it. This movie has received both positive and negative critics. My brother recommended this movie to me. I am actually not a BIG FAN of these mystery and journey kinda films but I watched it. Now the big thing about this movie is its cast. Robert Pattinson, Charlie Humman …
This film is very captivating in many ways. First off, it was filmed on 35mm, which is great for this type of movie. Nowadays, people expect films to be “in your face” or “exploding with craziness”, but that is what makes this film great. It is based on a true story, and keeps to …
Honestly, this is probably the best movie I’ve ever watched in my entire life. These are my favorite kinds of films. Mystery, Drama, Action, and adventure all together. A brilliant movie.
9. “Borat Subsequent Moviefilm”
This movie made me laugh so hard! The uniqueness of his foreign culture injected into what seems not normal to the U.S. was showcased so well!
As always, Sascha delivered new different pictures for the comedy hunger audience which we truly deserve by the way this whole year round.
I just bumped out that it took 14 years to make a sequel which I defined as the No. 1 comedy documentary that has been ever made.
It’s really good to see Sylvester Stallone back on screen after a few years’ gap. Perhaps, he is still the fittest senior most actors in Hollywood even at 76.
Samaritan is all about a troublesome kid who frequently gets teased and beaten up by some street boys, messes up around people, and knows too much about the secrets of the Samaritan. Aged and oldie Joe Smith lives a normal life trying to stay out of trouble until he meets the kid and is revealed to be the old and undead Samaritan, the brother of evil Nemesis.
Emotional bonding between the kid and the old Samaritan flows at a slow pace in the first half, however, it gets gritty only when the crime goons learn about the existence of Samaritan. They plan to destroy the city and create chaos among the rebellious middle-class people.
Stallone looks still fresh and confident at 76 and that’s the best part of the movie. His hardcore fans won’t be disappointed. The 13-year-old Sam’s role by Javon Walton is convincing and cheerful but also annoying whenever he asks questions to Joe out of his curiosity. Johanne Philip’s role of antagonist Cyrus is nothing new than a typical villain who wishes to create a ruckus all around.
