CRITIQUED: DARK SHADOWS

So, the bloom has finally fallen off the rose. And no, we’re not talking about Orlando Bloom. That's a different movie. We’re actually talking about the decades-long über-collaboration between film director Tim Burton and superstar Johnny Depp. They’ve done seven films together before this year’s Dark Shadows, all of them mired

CRITIQUED: MEN IN BLACK III

A lot of the action films this year have been getting a lot of hype and publicity, be it The Avengers or Battleship. But not Men in Black III. And why should it? It has Will Smith in the lead role, who by the way is a member of the club known for making

CRITIQUED: DEPARTMENT

Ram Gopal Varma definitely has his way of making films. Be it Satya, Company, Sarkar and Sarkar Raaj to name a few, almost every single one of his films deals with the gangster element in every day life. They are usually dark but have a spellbinding story line and cast. But

CRITIQUED: SAFE

Jason Statham has carved a nice niche for himself in Hollywood in the Action genre. If you take the story line out of the equation for some of his action films, the action sequences are always high octane and an adrenaline rush. Safe is no different. You might consider watching this film

CRITIQUED: THE AVENGERS (PART 2)

This film is a comic lover’s playground. Action, drama, comedy, heroics, aliens, monsters, and oh, that Robert Downey, Jr. This movie has everything you need for a blockbuster, and a few things you thought you didn’t (but will love nonetheless).

CRITIQUED: THE AVENGERS

What do you get when you put together a bunch of superheroes like Iron Man, Thor, Hawkeye, The Hulk, Black Widow and Captain America in one place, in one team? Absolute mayhem. And in a good way. All the films leading up to The Avengers have all been blockbusters and this movie

CRITIQUED: ORU KAL ORU KANNADI (OK OK)

We are still trying to catch our breath after this flick. Udhayanidhi Stalin's foray into the acting world in Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (A Stone A Mirror) is a resounding success and he was greatly helped in part by comedian Santhanam's great jokes and comedic timing. Udhayanidhi was also supported in this

CRITIQUED: TEZZ

We have been trying hard not to take the Lord's name in vain, and we are pretty sure others felt the same way while watching director Priyadarshan's Tezz. His attempt at recreating a Bollywood action thriller set in London and based on Hollywood action films like Speed, Unstoppable, Taking of

CAN’T THINK LIKE A MAN? READ A BOOK!

Or at the very least, watch the movie.   Screen Gems major motion picture Think Like a Man is a loose departure from the best-selling advice book from comedian Steve Harvey, but the insight it explores on relationships, marriage, overcoming fears and realizing your potential is anything but a departure. The glaring differences between
