From the first frame to the last, the movie is pure magic. It is living proof that movies have no need for sex, violence, colors, or even a dialogue to be moving, funny, engaging and most of all, entertaining. Click for full review

50/50 [2011]

“50/50″ is a comedy about cancer. That’s right, I said comedy and cancer in one sentence. How the makers of this terrific film created a story about a young man’s battle with cancer that manages to be heartbreaking and funny at the same time is still a mystery to me. I guess it does help to have a smart screenplay and a couple of solid actors in the lead. Click for full review.

Nowhere Boy [2010]

Here’s John Lennon before he was John Lennon. He might have taught the world that “all you need is love”, but what you probably didn’t know is that he spent most of his childhood looking for it. Click for full review.

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel [2012]

I had a smile on my face from the moment this unusual movie began, and the film maintained that lovely quality all the way to the finale. Dench and the rest of the cast play a group of British geriatrics who, for a variety of reasons, find themselves at a hotel in India, supposedly “the best” in town. Click for full review.

I came to this movie as a blank state, with no expectations, and came out with a huge smile on my face. “Intouchables” is a feel good movie that actually makes you feel good. It’s also a movie that earns its laughs honestly and touchingly.Click for full review.



Another Earth [2011]

 Here’s a thought: there’s another earth out there. A duplicate earth. Which means there’s another you out there. Now picture this: if you had a chance to meet your other self, what would you say to it? What would you learn from it? Or better yet: has the other “you” made the same mistakes you did? Or is it simply better than you? Click for full review.

“Flipped” is the kind of movie that gives love a great name.  No one can give it a bad review. I really can’t see how anyone could pick a fight with this film. It does exactly what it wants to do and more. There’s no doubt about it that you will find it as sweet and cute as I did.Click for full review.
