And a girl documents the adventurous day. As boxes are transported, walls painted white, and furniture is assembled, underlying problems in need of fixing are revealed, a to-do list expands, and desires and needs flair up… A tragicomic catastrophe film. A poetic ballad about change […]

This was my last attempt in one of the local movie festivals, and I finally got it right. Technically, this is not a perfect movie but it gives a completely…

Alma is a scientist at Berlin’s famous Pergamon Museum. In order to obtain research funds for her studies, she accepts an offer to participate in an extraordinary experiment. For three weeks, she must live with a humanoid robot with artificial intelligence designed to allow it to morph into that of her ideal life partner. Enter Tom, a machine in human form, created to make her happy.

I blame myself for postponing to watch this movie. It has strong competitors like Ex Machina, not too much of a budget, and yet exceeded all the expectations. Acting is…

Don’t Look Up

Comedy, Drama, Science Fiction

Two low-level astronomers must go on a giant media tour to warn humankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth.

One of these times when I have to give credit to the Hollywood for the good looking big budget films. I've been missing these in the pandemic and as a…

Drama, Thriller, Horror

A woman with a metal plate in her head from a childhood car accident embarks on a bizarre journey, bringing her into contact with a firefighter who’s reunited with his missing son after 10 years.

Take an extreme body horror, mix it with a heavily social theme and you have a Palme d'Or winner :) It would be much better if the director didn't try…

Science Fiction, Adventure

Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential-only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Kept locked inside the house by her father, 7-year-old Chloe lives in fear and fascination of the outside world, where Abnormals create a constant threat—or so she believes. When a mysterious stranger offers her a glimpse of what’s really happening outside, Chloe soon finds that while the truth isn’t so simple, the danger is very real.

A great little surprise in the science-fiction genre. I had a doubt about superhero theme but totally no complaints after watching the movie

A once-celebrated kid detective, now 31, continues to solve the same trivial mysteries between hangovers and bouts of self-pity. Until a naive client brings him his first ‘adult’ case, to find out who brutally murdered her boyfriend.

A Chinese peasant is given the responsibility of protecting his village’s special dairy cow during a particularly harsh winter in 1940.

It was a Spring’s film festival and I had to choose a movie. There were many social themed ones that I’m generally careful about. I kept reading the programme until…

A charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime. Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.

I’ve never imagined liking a movie with Sandler this much. One of the best movies in years. The whole script is based on one man’s suddenly collapsing life, and executed…
