    Confession: I thought this movie would suck. Denzel Washington back playing a killing machine a decade after “Man On Fire”? Please. Well, my bad.

    “The Equalizer”, this time directed by Antoine Fuqua, is a roller-coaster ride that takes off like a crazy-ass rocket. Your head will spin. Your palms will sweat. Your nerves will fry. What more do you want from an action thriller? A layered plot and deep-dish profundity? Yea right.

    The selling points here are action scenes. And this movie delivers ...

    Pompeii

    Director Paul W.S. Anderson revisits the disaster struck Roman city of Pompeii in AD 79 in this aptly named disaster-adventure film. Not his usual pick of genre after enthralling us with science fiction blockbusters including the Resident Evil and Death Race series, Pompeii on first look sets expectations high.

    The film begins 17 years in hindsight where young Milo witnesses the slaughter of his entire tribe in Britannia by the corrupt Roman senator Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland). As the last boy ...

    The Lego Movie

    With all the marketing for The Lego Movie I knew it wasn’t going to be just a kids’ movie. The voice actors connected to it and the logistics of animating legos were intriguing enough but throw in a prophecy/underdog plot, and a tie-dyed shirt wearing messiah with Morgan Freeman’s voice, and you’ve got a wacky mix with the potential for really anything. What results is indeed a kids’ movie but with complex themes and an unexpected twist.

    The Hunger Games Catching Fire

    Very few directors are able to make movies that remain true to the books or capture their essence. ‘Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ is one of those few that Francis Lawrence has directed with such finesse and mastery, that it helps materialize the dystopian society the writer, Suzanne Collins, has created.  The sequel to the first movie is brilliant, and even if you have read the books, the blistering whirlwind will keep your heart racing and ...
