    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    In the beginning , I will have to mention that I am not the biggest Quentin Tarantino's fan in the world but I liked all of his films especially kill Bill and I think he is one remarkable artist . This movie with no doubt made my day . I loved it and think it is an interesting and out of box film. This is a collection of situation that will merely talk about anything and I found that very…

  • The Lion King

    The Lion King

    ★½

    The same case in here like Aladdin I'll discuss this film not the original with no comparison . This movie is dull . There is no much for me to say but I didn't like it at all. The story is good on paper only . Timon and pumbaa are the best character in this movie though they don't have much to do in the film . Scar also was wonderfully presented. As for the rest of the cast, there…

  • Spider-Man: Far from Home

    Spider-Man: Far from Home

    ★★★½

    It was the perfect time for Spider-Man character to take one huge step forward filling empty shoes after endgame and that was supposed to be an easy task and yet we haven't witnessed anything like that in far from home . I really hated MJ and Peter's sudden exaggerating romance and it didn't work at all for me . I was about to hate this film till the big twist in the middle of the movie that saved it for…

  • Yesterday

    Yesterday

    ★½

    Well , it's the first time I've seen someone having an accident then the rest of the world suffer from amnesia not even partial amnesia but they forgot about the Beatles , Coke cola , Harry Potter and cigarettes . I saw several movies adopting strange ideas but this time I saw it very bizarre and stupid and that affected the entire movie experience as I was constantly discomfort during it . There is not a single character in this…

  • Toy Story 4

    Toy Story 4

    ★★★★★

    The idea of making a fourth toy story movie is very risky and at its start I constantly said to myself please be good and it's very good . Recently I've rewatched the first three movies and i found myself enjoying them much more , they are great . In fact this is the best trilogy in the term of quality . Toy story 4 is also very good but a little bit less better but I loved it anyway.…

  • Murder Mystery

    Murder Mystery

    ★★★½

    To clear some stuff up , I'll have to say that I am a huge fan of Adam Sandler and I think he has a real talent . He may have done bad movies or you can call some of them terrible but the thing that I am definitely sure of is that he is not a bad actor at all . I had lots of fun watching murder mystery and laughed from its start to end . The story…

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★

    I am not gonna talk about the original film nor make any comparison with it . In general I love musicals pretty much and one of my own favorite movie category. The live action of Aladdin was ok, no more no less . Will Smith was entertaining enough and he stole every scene he is in but anything else was dull and boring . The biggest annoying element was Jafar's character .it was weak and awfully acted . I don't…

  • Avengers: Endgame

    Avengers: Endgame

    ★★★★★

    It's worth the wait and more . I love this movie . This is of course the end of an era and it's executed in the proper way . This movie is made for the true fans of the MCU and if I can describe it ,I will say that was a love letter for the fans , the cast the built all of this empire , the entire journey that begins with Robert Downey Jr in 2008 and also…

  • Shazam!

    Shazam!

    ★★★½

    Super cool and surprisingly fresh . I had a blast watching this film but I think it could be better with some smartness .
    Pros first : instantly I was deeply connected to main character Billy and I did care about him . The initial transformation was very stupid but I liked very much. Zachary Levi was amazing giving very beautiful childish performance and had good chemistry with Jack Dylan . The second act of the film is my favorite…

  • Tropic Thunder

    Tropic Thunder

    ★★★★★

    The characterization in this film is fabulous and should be learned from . All performances are very good but Robert Downey Jr is great and brilliant in here. With each rewatch this movie is still fresh and watching Tom cruise is really fun.

  • Captain Marvel

    Captain Marvel

    ★★½

    I am not satisfied with this film and found it pretty disappointing . I'll begin with the pros , The CGI to Samuel L Jackson and Clark Gregg's characters was beautifully done , I liked that very much also the chemistry between Samuel and Brie was nice , they're cute together. And that's it. I almost didn't enjoy anything else . If the film had been released in 1995 , it would have been fun, but marvel had already made…

  • Cold Pursuit

    Cold Pursuit

    ★★★½

    This movie came from nowhere and delivered such a pleasant surprise for me. Funny , entertaining and smart. The story is not at its best , the villain is badly acted and God only knows why Laura Dern and Emmy Rossum are in this movie . Despite all those issues ,I had lots of fun . I loved how the smart humor element has been added and rescued the movie for me as the story has some holes and unreasonable sometimes.
