Jurassic World (2015)

Twenty years ago, when I was just a toddler in the small town of Indore there came a very strange and then terrifying movie. We still don't regularly get all Hollywood hits here in the heart of the state of Madhya Pradesh so when Jurassic Park was being screened one month after its release, it was a… Continue reading Jurassic World (2015)

Mad Max : Fury Road (2015)

I love an epic movie, when with a soaring soundtrack, long aerial shots and that typical but enjoyable dichotomy of good and evil. While dramas and comedies may be able to deliver entertainment, they always pale in comparison to those cinematic wonders where the story seems too grand for any realistic world. Ask the hairs… Continue reading Mad Max : Fury Road (2015)

American Sitcoms of an Era gone by

Interstellar (2014)

So the other day I was reading about temporal contiguity and its effect on the effectiveness of product reviews. The concept of course is ironical in  the context of this movie and almost humorously so but still the negative relation between latency of reviewing (after watching a movie) and the reception of said review, prompts me… Continue reading Interstellar (2014)

Chef (2014)

Cooking and food unlike any other art forms, can be appreciated by everybody, for its not difficult to understand, we are biologically programmed to find it appealing and of all the expressions of creativity is perhaps the easiest ''to''''digest'' . Although we see a lot of food in movies, we don't see too many food… Continue reading Chef (2014)
