First Man (2018)

Space science is not something that excites me but I watched First Man for the sweethearts, Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy. Damien Chazelle has got a different perspective on the movie and its not only about the patriotism and victory of science, it follows a man's story and his sorrows. I think it is an amazing take on the story.

First Man shows a plaintive portrayal of Neil Armstrong's life, together with his family. Claire Foy's portrayal of Janet Armstrong is every bit realistic and powerful. Amazing performances by both of them. The scenes have been shot with great precision, whether its Gosling on the screen alone, contemplating his feelings or Foy looking at her husband and actually connecting and explaining the dilemma in a way. The background theme for the movie adds to the story and the perspective that the director wants to showcase, its sad, distant, and lamenting.

This one is definitely worth watching. If you missed it this weekend, plan it for it for the next one and trust me you won't regret.

Write to me and let me know what made you like or dislike the movie.

Mary Queen of Scots

Another remake and this time with one of my favorites as the lead, Saoirse Ronan as Mary Stuart in Mary Queen of Scots. Interestingly, Margot Robbie is going to play Queen Elizabeth I, which is something I couldn’t have thought of in terms of casting, but I look forward to.

The movie has been directed by Josie Rourke, who has a reputation for directing artistic Broadway productions. Guy Pearce and Ian Hart are also part of the cast. It is based on the book ‘Queen of Scots: the true life of Mary Stuart’ by John Guy.

Watched the trailer and it looks very dramatic. Its a complex character and people have their own perspectives. Saoirse Ronan is too young to play the role, appreciate the bold choice on her part, though. Honestly, what I am afraid of is that Margot Robbie might just steal the show and Saoirse might end up looking little shy and gentle, fingers crossed.

Please watch the trailer and let me know what do you think about it. Is it on your watch list?

The Irishman: teaser

You know what happens when Martin Scorsese teams up with Robert De Niro, right, BOOM! The Irishman is post production and probably one of the best movies to look out for in 2019.
Here's a link to a factual video, the rest of them on the Internet are fan made.

The period drama stars some of the biggest, best names in terms of acting, who also happen to be Scorsese's regulars: Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, Harvey Keitel. Another exciting fact, you probably already know about, this is the first time Scorsese is working with Al Pacino! It is based on the book I Heard You Paint Houses by Charles Brandt.

Apparently, Netflix has paid a huge amount for the movie and I would have too, if I had that kind of money. The release date isn't known yet but it would be sometime in 2019.

Write to me and let me know if you are excited about the The Irishman and how do you picture the legends.

The Favorite: is it wise for Colman?

I watched the trailer for The Favorite today and though the movie seems to be interesting with Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman in the lead but I doubt something, Colman being casted as Queen Anne of the Great Britain in the movie when she has been confirmed to play the lead in the third season of The Crown, is it her wrong choice of role OR a casting flaw?

The movie premiered at the Venice International Film Festival this year and is scheduled to be released later in 2019 around the same time as the third season of The Crown.

Watch the trailer and let me know what do you think.

Little Women remake: this is fancy!

Yet another remake has been announced and wait till you get to know about the cast!

Little Women is to be remade and this time by Greta Gerwig, not just that, speculations say that she will also be writing the adaption for the camera!

Now, the exciting part, the CAST:

  • Laura Dern as Marmee March

  • Timothee Chalamet as  Laurie

  • Emma Watson as Meg March

  • Meryl Streep as the rich Aunt March

  • Saoirse Ronan as Jo

I think I would have wanted Meryl to be Marmee, yes, actually. For now, I am happy to watch her to be a part of the remake. Who would have thought! Too happy with Laurie and Jo, though.

I am too excited about this one, given the cast. I think I’ll always be excited about any Little Women remake and have the right to compare it to the ’94 movie.

Write to me and tell me what would you dream cast for Little Women be ..
