  • Black Mirror: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too

    Black Mirror: Rachel, Jack and Ashley Too

    ★★½

    This isn’t bad. It’s just not Black Mirror.

    The songs were okay tho

  • The Prodigy

    The Prodigy

    ★★½

    It was a mediocre predictable movie, with average performances and recycled storyline. Not bad, but definitely not great.

    A similar movie called Orphan was a lot better.

  • Close

    Close

    ★★½

    The movie had a strong start that going downhill throughout its runtime. Good acting by Noomi and Sophie, doing their best with the script that could have been a lot better. Thin story with a lot of gaps.

  • Speak

    Speak

    ★★½

    There are a lot of questionable directional choices here. A few interesting plot and characters. Stewart’s performance was okay.

    Not bad.

  • Adventureland

    Adventureland

    ★★½

    There was nothing interesting until the last 30 minutes of this movie. Kinda disappointed actually. But it’s not a bad movie after all, I was just expecting something more.

  • American Assassin

    American Assassin

    ★★½

    This movie could’ve been so much more but instead, it is just another Hollywood very average effort on making a spy action movie. Filled with cliches and expected storyline, this movie has nothing to surprise you with.

    But it’s not bad by any means, it’s still watchable. There are some entertaining moments in the movie, some of the action scenes too were quite exciting. But, yeah, I’d rather watch something else than this.
