Avengers Endgame | Questions | Lots of Spoilers and thoughts.

Endgame turned out to be a good one time watch but fell a bit short of my expectations. Go in with low expectations and you might think differently. What follows next in this article is a bunch a questions I had and a ton of spoilers which go with them. Along with those are some of those goosebumps worthy moments in the movie and a small review as well. So read along only if you don't mind the spoilers. How did Hawkeye end up with the Soul stone? Nat killed herself and she is definitely not one that Hawkeye loved the most. I thought you need to sacrifice that you loved the most to get the Soul stone ?The Time Travel sequence did mess up my brain. The second snap is supposed to have put things back to prior to when the first snap took place for the people w...

Alita: Battle Angel – A likable movie with certain obvious flaws

The movie left me with mixed opinions. One part of me absolutely loved the VFX, the heroine and bgm. The whole premise was pretty new to me due to my ignorance of the 'Manga' world. I certainly understand what the craze is all about. However, when a movie ends with more questions than answers by the end of it its obvious to leave you a bit flabbergasted and that is precisely how i felt. If you are a fan of 'manga', it probably is a no-brainer but for the rest of the world this movie is going to evoke a mixed response. You will be Wowed by the heroine, doctor, VFX and action but would be left questioning some of the cliched roles and characters including that of the villain and 'hero'. All I can say is that, there is a better chance of you liking it than disliking it.

Broadchurch | Netflix | Yet another reason why British shows are leaps and bounds above the rest.

Broadchurch , is a British crime-drama thriller based on a small coastal town by the same name. I just got done with the first season and it has been nothing short of outstanding till now. The story begins when a young boy is found dead at the beach and investigation begins on what transpired on the night of the death. A new DI, Alec Hardy (David Tennant) heads the investigation along with DS Ellie Miller (Olivia Colman) as the story unfolds on the lives and lies of the closely knit Broadchurch community. It's not often you get a crime-drama which shows in proper depth how a family and community deals with the death of a close one.  Olivia Colman does a wonderful job in the role of DS Ellie Miller, the detective in charge of the murder investigation of Danny Latimer, the kid who get...

Slow, boring and not worth the time spend : 1922 – Stephen King Novel Adaptation (A Netflix Original)

Another weekend and another one of those Netflix originals. The second Stephen King adaptation from the Netflix stable did not live up to the 'above-average' show by its predecessor Gerald's Game. Although a big fan of Stephen King, this is one book/short story that I had not read and should have ideally kept me intrigued throughout as I didn't know the story. However, this crime/drama/horror movie ended up just being a below average crime/horror flick with an average drama quotient. The storyline surrounds "A simple yet proud rancher in the year 1922 conspires to murder his wife for financial gain, convincing his teenage son to participate. (imdb)". This is all I can tell about the movie without revealing the very little the movie has to offer. From the word go, the movie was slow,...
