A lot of movie buffs curse Peter Berg for giving us a bad film ‘Battleship’, and I totally agree with them. But, when you get to the bottom of it you will know that he made Battleship just for the money , the money he invested in making Lone Survivor.

I can’t imagine spending one day in prison, Mr. Mandela spent 20 years.

Review; American Hustle

I wanted to love it , I wanted to love it real bad. But I simply didn’t. I loved The Fighter and I loved Silver Linings Playbook. David O. Russel’s American Hustle isn’t a bad film. In fact it’s pretty good but, it simply didn’t stand up to my expectations. That being said, I had sky high expectations. With a ...

Review; The Wolf Of Wall Street

People who were disappointed that Marty’s last film Hugo, was technically a family movie I hope this should work everything out. TWOWS is strangely the true story of Jordan Belfort played by Leonardo DiCaprio who is a stock-broker who lives to make money. He dreams about money, all he can think of is money.
