    Boyhood

    ★★★½

    Richard Linklater’s ambitious coming of age drama is all worth just for the one of a kind experience it provides, seamlessly connecting the random shifts spanning over 12 years. It’s moves aimlessly with no definite plot, but yet the screenplay manages to engage for most parts, reflecting the unpredictability just like in real life. It does have its hiccups, with some boring moments and overlong runtime, but yet the unique attempt makes it for a fascinating watch.

    What appeared to be a romantic comedy entertainer packed with one mindless fun gag after another, unexpectedly ends on a heavy father sentiment note. Yuvan’s lively music is one major plus perfectly complementing and uplifting each mood of the film. A harmless time pass watch.

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    A viscerally breathtaking cinematic experience loaded with unlimited adrenaline rushing thrills and spectacular old school vibe. The sequel is driven by its nostalgic emotional core, extending its world with familiar character dynamics. It does choose to go low on cheese, but gets better with much fleshed out characters and more focus on war intensity. The aerial stunts with practical effects are executed and captured in an exhilarating and highly tense manner, which further gets amped up to another ridiculous level…

    ★★★★★

    A powerfully poignant and heart wrenching cinema, one which honestly documents the harsh realities and the chaotic war torn life in Iraq-Turkey bordered refugee camp, through the eyes of displaced innocent children. Despite of all the physical-emotional devastation and brutality around, the movie still manages to find hopeful humane touches of humorous moments. The performances from the entire group children was simply fantastic. The entire finale sequence takes you on a harrowing experience. It’s a MUST WATCH thought provoking anti-war drama.
