The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2

Review :- So, I never really bit that deep into the whole Twilight hysteria but you can see why it works. Apart from Robert Pattinson’s pouty charms as pale-faced vampire Edward Cullen, Twilight features a weirdly wondrous world of vampires and velvet coats, preppie students – werewolves in their spare time – with raging hormones, skin-tight jeans and salon-slick hair, ...

Safe

Review :- It’s a Jason Statham movie where the actor is once again seen paving his way to victory while sorting the good from the bad.

The Iron Lady

Review :- The early 1980s were difficult times in Britain. Unemployment, recession, trade union strikes, IRA terrorism – those were hard times when Margaret Thatcher became the country’s first woman prime minister in 1979. By the time she quit in 1990, the Russians had fondly dubbed her The Iron Lady and Britain had changed irrevocably. Much of the drama and ...

My Week with Marilyn

Review :- The shooting has been wrapped up and he is at the bar sipping beer. There’s a murmur of disbelief all round as she steps into the bar, walks up to him and says, “I just wanted to say goodbye before leaving. Don’t forget me.” He doesn’t know what to say and mumbles, “As if I could.” Nobody touched ...

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island

Review :- Deadly dives into the oceans, a freaky thunderstorm high up in the sky, a flight on a funky helicopter gone wrong, gold showers from the sky, big butterflies, rides on giant honey bees, elephants the size of pets, giant lizards laying eggs that look like rocks…. In short, a dazzling, visual treat. Now that’s one reason why Journey ...
