WAR (2019) - 5/10
A movie easy to forget, not much to expect. Good dance moves from Hrithik & Tiger.
The only thing I liked is the fight between Hrithik & Tiger.

OMG! :shock: they are using Ipad to unlock the Door :blink:
The only thing I like are the dances in the songs of the Duo and others.

Danger Close I am always looking at war movies, and more often than not any movie that is close to 7 and 7.5 on IMDB I read reviews and watch it. This one had 7 but more of the negative reviews were coz of historical inaccuracies. otherwise, everything was positive. The movie showcases the battle otherwise knows as "The Battle of Long Tan " in 1966 fought between Australia and Vietnam. It's an Australian movie and is at par with any Hollywood recent war movie. The only exception is the blood and gore which is controlled as against to for example hawkshaw bridge. Otherwise, the movie is absolutely tense, gripping and out and out war movie. It starts off right from the action without going into any character background, which somehow works as well; as we get to know them during the course of the move. I would rate this a decent 7/10 worth your time I would say.

Train to Busan (2016) - 7.5/10
Well we have seen so many Zombie movies with same story, played so many Zombie game on similar plot.
But still this movie is Kick-Ass with good story and emotional ending.

Strangely this didn't have much effect on me. The Host is still better. (not zombie)

1917 - 8/10
1917 is unrelenting. The whole movie is a single shot, but the two hours of action takes place over the span of an entire day. If you thought the action in Mad Max never gives the audience a break, this dials that up to the 11. The intensity is crazy even in the scenes where characters are just talking, or having a tender moment. This movie takes you step by step into the darkest scenes of war, and you follow behind the characters every moment. It is immersive, and unrelenting. You might forget to breathe. You will not know how the run time has passed. The camera work is just exceptional... the movement takes some cues from Gravity and the framing follows that of Russian Ark, and the way the camera tracks the characters is very similar to Birdman, but here everything comes together better. There are some technically brilliant shots like the camera moving smoothly over a pool of water which clearly has no rails laid over it for the dolly, this cannot be done in CGI. It is not a single take, as there are some obvious places where the camera could cut, but these are so invisible that you cannot find them unless you are specifically watching out for these moments. There is a night battleground scene which somehow manages to be epic, surreal, raw and real at the same time. The use of lighting and shadows in this sequence is something else... and deserves to be experienced on the big screen. This is a true to life depiction of trench warfare, where the extremeness and the ferocity of wanton destruction is shown in every frame, yet nothing looks exaggerated or embellished. Sam Mendes has outdone himself, this could be the best movie he ever makes. It is one of the best war movies ever made, and easily one of the best movies ever. This one is going to win at least a few Oscars. This is going to be shown in film schools, and is going to go down in history as one of the best cinematic experiences ever crafted. There are a ton of cameos, and these are all without exception, incredibly effective. If you have seen and liked the Kingsman movies, then you will love this one. If you have read about or interested in trench warfare in WWI, then this was made for you. Do not miss the chance to catch this on the big screen if you can. It teleports you to another place and time.

Host is on another level. The Best thing about Korean movies is their cinematography, direction and background music. Even if the plot is repetitive, the execution feels unique.

How come no review of Parasite?!

None have seen this yet?

I've seen about 2 months back.

It deserves all the praise and awards it got and nominated.
A marvelous piece of art in the form of movie.

Parasite (2019) - 8/10
Excellent movie from Bong Joon. The title of the movie matches its plot. All characters were excellent in acting, drama & comedy.
Though some people might not consider it that great to deserve an Oscar.
