    The Little Things

    ★★

    It’s the little things, Jimmy. It’s the little things that rip you apart. It’s the little things that… get you caught.

    Inconsequential in everything it offers, The Little Things occupies a strange, grey area where it doesn’t quite fit into any defined genre, doesn’t follow anything remotely eventful or memorable, and leaves a lot to be desired by the time the credits roll. For such a long run-time, the lack of pay-off leaves only a dissatisfied taste in the mouth.…

First and foremost, it is unfathomable that this actually happened; secondly, I’m so glad such a great film was made to honour the story. Beautifully-shot, told…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    But this isn’t about me. This is hurting a lot of people.

    Seeing this film, after such long a wait and so many speculations and theories, is the modern-day equivalent of being a teen in the ‘80s who got to see Star Wars or Indiana Jones or any other iconic, memorable flick on the big-screen for the first ever time. It’s a bold statement to make, I know — but Spider-Man: No Way Home was everything I wanted it to…
