Film List

I’m sharing my taste in cinema what’s good. Have a look at my take on the following list of films I’ve watched.

Man on Fire (1987)Man on Fire (1987)

Watch another version of the same story directed by Tony Scott with the actor Denzel Washington. Then watch this film only to see how poor directing and editing can make a good story worst.
A Bear Named WinnieA Bear Named Winnie
★★★
This film tells a beautiful true story. It's fun watching and also moving. The quality of filmmaking is just fine, but it's entertaining enough. Kids will definitely love this film.
Chosen (2016)Chosen (2016)
★★★
This war drama film is a high-class production. The film tells a compelling true story with magnificent cinematography and an elegant colour effect. All actings are superb, and this film is overall a good watch.
Abducted (2007)Abducted (2007)
★★
It says the film is based on a true story, but it doesn't look like it. Actings and dialogues are poor, while the plot is pretty decent. Actually, this film could be a lot better.
Jennifer EightJennifer Eight
★★
This film tells the story of a serial killer, but it's slow, and the thriller is not very exciting. Some unrealistic actions and plot holes make this film a dull thriller. Cinematography is fine, though.
Beauty MarkBeauty Mark
★★★
Beauty Mark is a powerful and beautifully crafted drama film. The story and the important message in it was sensibly told. I highly recommend this film.
Lonely Hearts (2006)Lonely Hearts (2006)
★★★
The film tells the true story of crime. A simple story, but I love it. Directing, cinematography, acting, and costumes are well made. Overall, this film is entertaining.
The Guilty (2000)The Guilty (2000)

It seems like a film amateur writes this story. The plot is so pathetic with its twists and turns on many implausible coincidences. Bill Pullman's acting was just awful too. This film may be only good if you have nothing else to watch before you go to bed.
WhiplashWhiplash
★★
I couldn't believe what I saw in this film. A boot camp or a music school? It's a poorly written, unrealistic story, but the cinematography and editing are well-made. This film is one of the top-rated films and won 3 Oscars. So, see it for yourself, and if you think this is a piece of claptrap, you're not alone.
All Is LostAll Is Lost
★★★
A solo character with no dialogue makes this film distinctive. It's a slow film, but it's engrossing and watchable. However, some may have found this is not entertaining because of the film style that differs from what people usually see in cinemas.
Inside Llewyn DavisInside Llewyn Davis

I love the folk songs in this film, but unfortunately, the rest of the film is underwhelming and dull. I'm surprised IMDb rated 7.5/10, and this film was nominated for 2 Oscars. This is definitely not my cup of tea as the story didn't go anywhere.
In the Heart of the SeaIn the Heart of the Sea
★★★
This adventure film told an appealing tale of a whaling ship and its crew. I hate the way how it narrates the story, but the visual effects are what I enjoy watching this film.
Hope Gap (2019)Hope Gap (2019)
★★★
This is a character-driven film, but the plot is also powerful. I've often met such people in the past, so I understand their emotions very well. This film is a good watch as the story told with beautiful cinematography.
The King and I (1956)The King and I (1956)
★★★★
This fantastic musical film I'll be remembered for forever! The charismatic performance of Yul Brynner is splendid. This is one of the films I would enjoy watching again and again.
Honest Thief (2020)Honest Thief (2020)
★★
This is just a typical action/thriller film. I agree with what the other reviews say - the film is "poorly scripted", "workman-like action choreography", and "by-the-numbers plot", though it's not too bad to watch.
