MGM Loses Its Mind, Lets Sly Stallone Live-Host ROCKY & FREE Watch Party for You

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent Suddenly everyone is Robert Osborne online - if you don’t remember him, he was a Turner Classic Movies Host who literally brought back “old movies” to a new generation - but now there are so many liner-note commenters. You've got a cinema ga-lazy of Blogstars and Podcast heroes,  so it's unremarkable when all-comers comment on films… However, tonight MGM is casting Sylvester Stallone as a L...

Baaghi 3, Review: Rebel without a pause

Baaghi 3, Review: Rebel without a pause Meaning ‘rebel’ in Urdu, Baaghi 3 showcases the muscular machismo, kicking quotient and airborne acrobatics of the loose cannon called Tiger Shroff. He first takes on petty thugs and eve-teasers, then murderers and people smugglers and finally the most dreaded terrorist organisation in Syria, nay, it is claimed, the whole world! His own voice-over at the end credits these escapades as the outcome of being a rebel. And does this rebel have a ...

Due to the latest event schedule, the submission deadline of 2020 UMFF would be extended to April 30th (https://filmfreeway.com/UniverseMulticulturalFilmFestival), and the n...

Onward, Review: Upward, downward, northward, southward, eastward, westward, and afterward

Onward, Review: Upward, downward, northward, southward, eastward, westward, and afterward A potpourri of various elements found across several genres, animation giants Disney and Pixar’s Onward is good fun while it lasts. The film uses motivational and familial themes to string together a tale of an era wherein everything modern co-exists with almost everything mythical and magical. It stretches your imagination to some limits, but once you set your disbelief to the required frequency o...

Brahms the Boy II, Review: Let sleeping dolls lie

Brahms the Boy II, Review: Let sleeping dolls lie A potentially scary movie that does not scare you loses all meaning. Avoiding tropes should not mean doing away with horrible goings on almost altogether. Brahms the Boy II is about a living doll (with apologies to Cliff Richard) that performs all its super-natural feats off camera, barring one or two, and that takes away the fear factor. Most of the film has a logically progressing narrative, but one that holds little interest to audiences wh...

Fantasy Island, Review: Risks submersion

Fantasy Island, Review: Risks submersion Inspired is equal measure by two incompatible sources as divergent as Agatha Christie and the U.S.S.R. film Solaris, Fantasy Island plays deep desires against harsh realities in an implausible tale that is part vendetta, part science fiction and part psychic phenomena. There are too many back-stories and unexplained events, as a result of which the movie gets bogged down. In the end, you will make sense of it only if you stop analysing or questioning t...

Shikara-- The Untold Story of Kashmiri Pandits, Review: Paradise lost

Shikara-- The Untold Story of Kashmiri Pandits, Review: Paradise lost A hot potato by any yard-stick, the plight of Kashmir Pandits, who were forced to leave the strife-torn land of Kashmir to live in Jammu or other parts of India, was always going to pose a challenge to film. Vidhu Vinod Chopra, a Kashmiri himself, is among the Hindi film industry’s most renowned film-makers. He bases the narrative of Shikara on true stories, but fictionalises it enough to meet the demands of the mediu...

1917, Review: One shot wonder, real-time revolution

1917, Review: One shot wonder, real-time revolution War films can be about nations and nationalism, or soldiers and their sagas. While the former promote jingoism, the latter tend to be anti-war, by personalising the narrative and addressing personal trauma of the protagonists, while universalising their sentiments. 1917 belongs to the second category. It is a technical marvel, but never wavers from the plight of its main characters. All the awards and encomiums it has garnered, raising expec...

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Review: A rewarding day at the movies

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, Review: A rewarding day at the movies Films inspired by true stories can offer refreshingly different cinematic treatment and there is no substitute for good casting; A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood scores on both parameters. What prevents it from getting into the outstanding league is a certain amount of cynicism with which the average cine-goer looks at movies about modern-day saints, especially if they happen to host their own TV shows. Inspired by...

Dolittle, Review: Only a veterinarian can save the Queen

Dolittle, Review: Only a veterinarian can save the Queen Imagine a veterinarian doctor who can understand animal language and talk to any member of the animal, bird and fish kingdom. When translated to cinema, as in Dolittle, this story creates a dramatic premise where his unique ability would prove crucial in an effort to save the dying Queen of England, no less. It’s as preposterous a premise as the basic platform itself, but, nevertheless, adds to the cuteness value of the whole exer...

The Grudge, Review: Grudging a sequel

The Grudge, Review: Grudging a sequel A horror film has to deliver high voltage terror that not only reaches the benchmark set by recent movies in the genre but rise above it, if it hopes to make significant impact. It can use tropes like jump-cuts and four-frame cuts to jolt you, yet there has to be enough juice to hold the film together and tap the fear factor recurrently, for 90-120 minutes. The Grudge fails on these counts, though it must be granted, without any grudge, that it is welcomi...
