Book Review: WICKED (1995)

Book Review: WICKED (1995)

I was as big a fan of THE WIZARD OF OZ as much the next film-geek. So I was excited to read a sort of prequel to the overall story of THE WIZARD OF OZ that came in the form of WICKED. And I wouldn’t given a shit at all about the new Sam Raimi movie but now… *squeals*

Movie Review: IQBAL (2006)

Movie Review: IQBAL (2006)

A story of a linguistically handicapped teenager, IQBAL is about dreams, ambitions and one’s determination to achieve what might be out of reach.

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 3 (2007)

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 3 (2007)

Season 3 of SUPERNATURAL really develops its own universe, exclusive to the show with a hoarde of supporting characters, recurring storylines and also what I would consider to be the BEST cliffhanger of any series that I’ve seen so far. I mean its BIG… like, hell freezing over big…

Movie Review: RANG DE BASANTI (2006)

Movie Review: RANG DE BASANTI (2006)

Rang De Basanti was single handedly responsible for pulling Bollywood out of a decades-long slump.

Movie Review: THE GHOST WRITER (2010)

Movie Review: THE GHOST WRITER (2010)

I will watch anything by Pierce Brosnan. That’s a fact. Same goes for Roman Polanski. Together, along with Ewan McGregor they do the eerily suspenseful… THE GHOST WRITER

Movie Review: KYON KI… (2005)

Movie Review: KYON KI… (2005)

Considering Salman Khan has been hugely successful recently with DABANNG and is coming out with another (apparently) funny philum, READY… I thought it’d be cool to take a look at an old review of one of his more ‘serious’ films: KYON KI…

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 2 (2006)

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 2 (2006)

Sometimes, certain shows take a while to grow and build, and find a certain niche for itself within the television audience, but Season 2 of SUPERNATURAL kicks off the show to a great start and ends with an awesome explosion of demonic goodness. (see what I did there?)

Movie Review: PATIALA HOUSE (2011)

Movie Review: PATIALA HOUSE (2011)

PATIALA HOUSE is very unique and original, and is probably the best Indian sports movie that I’ve seen set in contemporary times…

Movie Review: RAJNEETI (2010)

Movie Review: RAJNEETI (2010)

Rajneeti is a political thriller from Bollywood that falls a little flat, but still enjoyable.

Movie Review: RUNNING SCARED (2006)

Movie Review: RUNNING SCARED (2006)

This is a ‘review’ I wrote years ago on RUNNING SCARED… and it seems I was easily impressed in those days… such is youth.

RA.ONE – Preview

RA.ONE – Preview

It seems Shahrukh Khan’s latest Sci-Fi film, RA.ONE… is basically an Indianized version of TRON LEGACY. You gotta give it to ’em… they’re quick.

Movie Review: DHOBI GHAT (MUMBAI DIARIES) (2011)

Movie Review: DHOBI GHAT (MUMBAI DIARIES) (2011)

Once on a while comes a film that tends to break free of patterns established in conventional storytelling prior to it. Such a film comes in the form of Aamir Khan produced and Kiran Rao (his wife) directed DHOBI GHAT.

Movie Review: SARKAR (2005) – Remake Of Hollywood’s GODFATHER

Movie Review: SARKAR (2005) – Remake Of Hollywood’s GODFATHER

Ram Gopal Varma’s direct tribute to the man himself, Francis Ford Coppola, came with his Indianized version of THE GODFATHER, in the form of SARKAR.

Movie Review: ANJAANA ANJAANI (2010)

Movie Review: ANJAANA ANJAANI (2010)

Despite its commercial look and feel, I honestly thought within the first 10 minutes of ANJAANA ANJAANI, that it too would be a morbidly funny movie. I was ever so wrong.

Movie Review: PAHELI (2005)

Movie Review: PAHELI (2005)

I recently saw RAB NE BANA DI JODI, (review coming soon) which featured Shah Rukh Khan with a mustache, and it reminded me of this review I wrote of another mustache clad SRK. Anyways… here is another, unedited review I wrote from 6 years ago about the SRK starrer PAHELI.

TV Series Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 1 (2005)

and religious superstitions, were not exaggerations or imaginary cultural stories…but existed in reality. That is the basis for the awesome and innovative TV series SUPERNATURAL.

Movie Review: DUS (2005) – Action Masala At It Finest

Movie Review: DUS (2005) – Action Masala At It Finest

With the latest Shah Rukh Khan starrer, RA. ONE coming soon, I think it’d be cool to check out a film from the same director, 6 years ago. So I present yet again, another action movie from days gone by… DUS.

Sadly, ROBIN HOOD was nowhere near that, it was barely ‘good’. Check out my Review of the origin story with old people.

Movie Review: APAHARAN (2005)

Movie Review: APAHARAN (2005)

I’m back with another blast from the past. (I wonder how many cliche’d phrases I can keep using to describe my old articles… hmm.) Wrote this one in 2005… the year my writing really flourished, and also happened to be the year right before the Indian Film Industry was pulled out of its slump in 2006… coincidence??

TV Series Review: TRUE BLOOD – Season 2 (2009)

TV Series Review: TRUE BLOOD – Season 2 (2009)

Season Two of TRUE BLOOD amps up the adrenaline and over-all ‘WTF’ attitude of the show to levels never before seen with a unique and completely original story arc, that follows the whole town going bat shit, religious fanatics, orgies and wierd-ass moments… to name a few things from this season.
