old henry: 6.5/10
was a good westerner with a good twist, blake nelson is awesome, his acting chops is quite unique seen him in watchmen and a few others. under rated actor indeed. billy the kid oh yeah

V/H/S 4: 6/10
fourth instalment in the series, mix of scary tales etc.

warning: 5.5/10
this movie was weird, i mean first we see thomas jane in outerspace and than on earth its like interconnected tales of different people. wouldnt call it bad but confusing as hell

nocturne: 6/10
sydney sweeney :D "ahem" anyways this one was dark the whole psychological thing etc blumhouse movie and the end wow kinda reminded me of dark swan

south of heaven: 6.5/10
was a decent drama movie, jason sudeikis, evangeline lilly, good one

needle in a timestack: 3/10
this movie was confusing of all sorts TBH. just totally jumbled up, one time its there and another its gone. totally did not made sense much

lair: 5.5/10
an ok thriller flick, gore and horror etc.

injustice: 7/10
now i dont get the hate on this but i understand that they crammed like 5 volumes or so into a 80minute movie, thats unfair tbh, should had been a 2 part like the long halloween.

copshop: 6.5/10
lots of action, blood gore and a bit of mystery to it, good cast, the movie was enjoyable. last scenes were quite good

snakehead: 6/10
another drama movie here, sung kang (fastfurious han) in this but he's not the main here another actor is but none the less good support from him and the movies not half bad either, it has it's moments

apex: 6.5/10
bruce willis in yet another B grade movie but this time its actually not that bad tbh. this one had good action and more over had ample time with bruce wilis as he is the protagonist

paranormal activity next of kin: 6/10
same formula from paranormal activity this time though in a larger area but same ol stuff, only the end 30minutes were engaging. a sequel to this is in the works.

Dune: 7/10
the movie is pretty vast and acting was good etc but the one thing i noticed was they copied the arabs and such plus i think they took the coming of imam mehdi and stuff in this movie as well . they even say those words infact in the movie. this was just the build up. the second movie is where the fun should be with action and all

blood red sky: 6.5/10
the movie was different from others and a good one but the movie itself spoiled parts of it in the beginning had it not been shown at first and later as a surprise would be better

the goonies: 7/10
an old favourite lol, heard many times about this but first itme watching this as it popped up on netflix, fun movie, a sequel is in the works i heard too wow after soo many years.

saw "Eternals" last night at cinestar IMAX

253061364_10165575836750065_1125362967095895972_n (1).jpg

So this movies getting quite alot fo mixed reviews and hate. i would say its quite unnecessary and that is coming from a dc fan. i thought the movies origins was pretty easy to understand and it showed the plot and all even had a twist or two and it was good not that it wasn't pretty outright obvious

the actor's like 8 or so of them on screen were good. they gave em ample time on screen some a bit more than others but i guess it's going to happen with this big of a team, our kumail got lots of time though one gripe later on with him, others angelina jolie, richard madden, gemma chan they were the main leaders here and yes even that sprite girl too.

the movies long 2 hours 30mins well for a good origins story, its a different phase now so lots of new characters and universes and such. too much to handle man coz i never knew who eternals were so a little big to digest haha

anyways the movie isn't as bad as they are making it to be. its good, it has its fun and it will make you want for more by the end especially wait for it the mid credits scene and the after credits scene.

so the one bad thing i saw was that i saw some plot holes here and there
Spoiler: show
but kicking kumail's character out right near the end kingo right near the end fight and not include him in it WTF man only his character wasn't there and he was the alive eternal not even dead. thats 1 less point right there.


Rating 7/10

lamb: 6.5/10
starring noomi rapace, the movie is quite slow and for the first 30 minutes you'll be just like what is happening but after that Several WTF moments will arise and the end wow haha. quite entertaining but SLOW as i said

the eyes of tommy faye: 7/10
wow so this is based on real life events, well raking in money in the name of religion is nothing new to us right.

pokemon the movie: secrets of the jungle: 6/10
i think its time i can see i've outgrown pokemon movies, games NO hell no but movies kinda. this one was fine, i still like the original ones but newer ones are same kinda thing like olds but with newer pokemon just.

curtis: 6/10
was an ok drama movie, good thing wasn't that long, short and to the point

finch: 6.5/10
the movie was fine, definitely not the best from tom hanks but was OK, the ending was a bit of a cliffhanger type.

bingo hell: 5/10
just a B grade type comedic horror movie if i had to say so myself.

Xtreme: 6/10
as the name suggests it had Xtreme fights in it, good stuff action filled. brutal too at points.

dangerous: 4/10
wow with a such big cast invovled the story does matter alot in the end, movie had multiple stars but fails to deliver much. the 4 points is mostly star power haha

resort to love: 6/10
saw this on netflix, the movies like any other romance comedy type. was a decent watch.

one shot: 5/10
seriously couldn't get the heads and tails of this movie, scott adkins i like him but in this what the hell is happening, even ashley greene was like, movies story is just too weak imo

the source of shadows; 6/10
small horror shorts in this movie compiled. decent watch

shang-chi: 7/10
well finaly on D+ and i could dld it and watch since it never came in cinemas here. the movies a bit different from other mcu movies, lots of chinese emaphasis and even alot of chinese talk so subtitles etc. good cast, good acting and the cgi at the end was wow. kinda reminded me of raya and the two dragons at the end though. lots of cameos and ben kingsley man he just stole the show. awesome

ankahi kahaniya: 6/10
saw this on netflix, short movies compilation with different stories from bollywood.

no time to die: 7/10
saw the final instalment to the james bond movie for daniel craig, he's done 5 movies under his time and thats saying alot, this movie was a good farewell to the character . i think it was done well. though skyfall is still the best movie, the movie was just too good in the villain department, i think this one focuses a bit too much on bond and not much on the villain here and that was a bit of a let down for me, the villain must be antagonizing enough to carry the whole movie not the hero IMO what makes the movie more thrilling.

sweet girl: 6/10
the movie had some good amount of action etc, the twist was bonkers though haha

the spine of night: 5.5/10
the movies animated style, lucy lawless, richard e grant and patton oswalt voice some of the characters so my main reason to watch this, the movie is NSFW though the main protagonist doesnt wear much to say the least haha.

home sweet home alone: 5.5/10
as a stand alone movie not compared to the original this is fine but if compared to the originals, this one doesn't stand a chance at all.

black as night: 6/10
blumhouse productions movie, saw this on amazon prime, the movie's not that bad, is a b grade horror movie but quite good. centered around same vampires in the hood kinda thing.

multiverse: 6.5/10
was amazed to see mcu or dc didn't take this name up yet lol. anyways the movie consists of different paralel worls coming into contact and a time theory begins. was quite exciting especially the end.

chernobyl 1986: 6.5/10
the events occurred here are true in the movie saw this on netflix but i think the stories are dramatized a bit . is a 2hour 30mins movie but was exciting to watch. ohh man the nuclear reactor thing is pretty badddd. this movie shows you the effect of it damn

clifford the big red dog: 6/10
not a bad book adoption, fun for the family i'd say

last night in soho: 7/10
now this one has some mixed reviews going on, for the first hour or so you may not know whats going on at all what the mystery or suspense is but later on you would get hints and what kept me hooked was the direction plus the songs. good acting was there as well

hide and seek: 6.5/10
this one again was a mystery thriller movie, jonathan ryhs meyers stars in it. good

the manor: 6/10
tbh after most of the blumhouse productions movies on amazon prime this one was a bit better of them

Saw Resident evil : welcome to racoon city at cinestar IMAX last night

Spoiler: show
261025004_10165640046220065_5189399343420208432_n.jpg


so by the trailers and all i had expected the movie to be a train wreck of sorts but surprisingly it amused me and had some good gaming easter eggs and elements to it, apart from the weirdly cast leon being the most out of character person in the movie, the movie did had its good moments tbh. wasn't that bad a decent watch and the end shows potential for a sequel infact the midcredits scene is a def yes to a sequel ohh yes.

Rating 7/10

king richard: 7/10
movie about the william sisters, will smith plays their dad and how he molded the sisters into what they are now. movie was long but didn't felt boring at all.

heart of champions: 5.5/10
was an ok movie, rowing championship and all. michael shannon was good, alexander ludwig was in here too plus a bunch of other tv actors.

zeroes and one: 6/10

spencer: 7/10
wow this movie led to a very dark and gut wrenching performance of kristen stewart as princess diana, i mean we all know the fame with the princess but this inner story which i had no idea of is very sad and tragic indeed. as the start of the movie says " a true fable from a tragedy"

8-bit christmas: 7.5/10
the movie was quite good, neil patrick harris was narrating his young days to his girl and all that christmas nintendo style movie but the ending was a LIE indeed :mad:

rim of the world:6.5/10
another kids teen movie facing end. was a decent watch

the humans: 6/10
very slow, just actors talking, having a thanksgiving dinner etc, the real punch comes near the end so you may want to listen closely not for the impatient people.

silent night: 7/10
the movie starts of as any other christmas themed movie etc but after about 20 minutes the twist kicks in and the movie turns dark VERY dark by the end i might add. that jojos kid is in here and he's doing the same type of acting here too haha

black island: 6/10
saw this on netflix, a german movie, had its twists and turns plus NSFW movie here the whole teacher student thing going on here.

the wedding guest: 5/10

rons gone wrong: 7/10
