    Death, Beauty & Vibes!

    I'll be honest here, this is a film that many people claim they don't understand. Initially, I thought they might be exaggerating, but after watching it myself, I can vouch for those sentiments; indeed, this is a confusing film. I found myself having to rewind it many times to grasp certain aspects, but overall, I still enjoyed it!

    WKW is a cinematic powerhouse, and you'll truly understand that once you watch this film. Don't expect a straightforward…

    + half star for the ending scene!

    I didn't have high expectations for this film. From what I had heard about it, despite having the name Bourne in the title, it seemed like it wouldn't feel like a Jason Bourne film and that it wouldn't be the same without Matt Damon. Jeremy attempts to make do with what he's given, but ultimately, it's out of his reach to save the film.

    It starts off interestingly, and the action, including slick…

    'Dune: Part Two' cements Denis Villeneuve’s status as the Sci-Fi genius!

    Only a handful of films have accomplished what 'Dune: Part Two' is poised to achieve: a masterpiece sequel. I had instants of goosebumps running through my body more times than I can count. Part Two surpasses its predecessor in every aspect—more characters, a more complex story, and an even more enriching experience.

    The contributions of Greig Fraser in cinematography and Hans Zimmer in music elevate this film to something…

    The Midder!

    So, I gave 'The Killer' a shot, and well, it's a mid-film by David Fincher. The pacing hit a few snooze buttons, and the whole narration bit didn't quite click – blame it on the screenplay or maybe the direction.

    Sure, the cinematography flexed its muscles, but it couldn't save the overall experience. It felt like Fincher tried to pull off an impersonation of 'Le Samourai', but the magic just wasn't there.

    And let's talk about sense –…

    Nolan’s Masterclass!

    Rewatched this masterpiece on an IMAX screen, and once again, it captivated my senses from start to finish. It's notably different from Nolan's recent films, particularly his sci-fi ones. This film showcases Nolan's ability to master the biopic/drama genre just as skillfully as any other genre he's tackled or may explore in the future.

    For me, the highlight of any Christopher Nolan film will always be the screenplay. When this film was announced, I had high expectations for…
