Produced by Christopher Nolan, this is one movie I can confidently call beautiful 👧. The cinematography 📷 was topnotch. Though confusing 😕, it successfully passes it’s message across to those with patience and an open-mind.
‘Dunkirk’ isn’t your conventional movie, so don’t be surprised if twenty minutes in you still don’t understand what is happening.
The movie stars 🌟 film favorite Tom Hardy (even though he doesn’t do much talking and spends the entirety of the behind inside an airplane ✈ behind a face-mask) and also marks One-Direction’s Harry Styles’movie debut. So, if you’re a fan of any of these two powerhouses you should check out the movie based on celebrity power bias, 😁.
Staring: Daniel Kaluuya, Allison Williams, Bradley Whitford, et al.

After watching ‘Get Out’ (2017) nothing scared me like going to the home of parents of any girl I’d love to marry. The psychotherapy thing with the teacup was so scary 😱.
Though a low budget movie, ‘Get Out’is has made so much money and won so much fans, it’s been regarded as one of the best movies of 2017. Yep, you’re unheard me right. So, get eager to watch this movie.
One thing I love about it is the right blend of themes of horror, comedy, racism, etc. It’s one of the few projects in existence to have a rare blend of perfection. The performances of the cast are topnotch, lead Daniel Kaluunya will get you feeling sympathy when you see those big, red, teary eyes, 😁 (or 😢). Whatever the case, I’m sure you’ll love him.
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Rebecca Ferguson, Ryan Reynolds, etc.

Life is a horror movie intertwined in SciFi, beautifully done, and should be remembered whenever the name Calvin is mentioned – RR.
I enjoyed watching ‘Life’. It was beautiful. The villain, Calvin, was beautiful. The worst things in life aren’t human (pun very much intended). This movie questions if humans are actually ready foe the existence of other forms of life outside earth as much as we claim to be. Deep space missions are commissioned on a regular, in real life, to identify the existence of something living outside planet earth. In Life, such existence is confirmed on planet Mars – the result is a cannibalistic life form that grows as much as it feeds, its name is Calvin.
Calvin wastes no time showing his true nature; he’s smart, calculative, and hungry. Of the six crew members aboard, he made sure the only one that made it back to earth was his ride to the planet with unlimited opportunities. Very smart!
Two things pained me in this movie:
1. There wasn’t enough Ryan Reynolds! Ryan was killed just as the action was starting. Ryan can do no wrong on a screen.
Why do I like seeing Ryan on screen? 😂.
I do not know. I think HBO, the money boosters, need to run a show and cast Ryan as the lead. There’s nothing like too much Ryan Reynolds. Nothing!
2. The ending! I wanted a very big twist. One where I’d be told there were two Calvin all along – the one that was brought on board and the one that festered on Hugh’s leg all along. This would have given me joy, but I’m good with what I waka given.
Life is a wonderful movie, and I recommend it anyone seeking a movie to watch
Jumanji is getting a reboot! Yes, you heard it. The popular movie we grew up with is been rebooted to meet with the standards of the new world. Personally, I do not really like the idea of a reboot, but as I’m open-minded, I ‘m willing to give it a short. The trailer tried its best to sensitize the public, but we can only fully gauge their like or dislike when the movies gets out.
Starring: Keanu Reeves, Ian McShane, Bridget Regan, Adrainne Palicki, etc.

Movie producers realize when they have a hit at hand, and most times they don’t know. John Wick is one of those times they didn’t. A sleeper hit in its own right… John has done well for himself. Starring many power houses in its cast such as lead, Keanu Reeves, and veteran, Ian McShane helped the execution of this usual story in an unusual way. Yes, I said usual story; a man going to great lengths to avenge a wrong done against him is something we see almost everyday, but if the reason for his anger is the death of a dog and robbery of his car then something is off. In the course of his mission, John does kill lots of people, this is worrisome looking at it with the eyes of realism, but in terms of action, it does make an entertaining watch.
OK! Let’s get started. Who is John Wick?
John Wick is introduced to us as a retired member of an Order of Assassins who follow specific set of rules, two of which are:
An eye for an eye
No killing on the premises of various hotels around the world regarded as continental grounds.
The first of this rule drives the story-line of this movie. John’s late wife set him a posthumous gift, a puppy. The stupid son of a Russian gangster breaks into John’s home, kills his puppy, and robs his car because John refused earlier in the day to sell it to him when they met at a fuel-station.
John, feeling he has been robbed of the last part of his wife goes after Losef Tarasov (the son of the Russian boss). John meets up with Viggo Tarasov (the Russian boss) and states the first rule to him. Obviously, this confrontation doesn’t go well and as expected lots of shoot-outs up until Viggo has no choice but to choose between himself and his son. I don’t know if it’s to show he understand the laws or just cowardice to stand up for his son, I had a problem with it.
John succeeded in killing Josef, which naturally further angered Viggo who in retaliation killed Marcus (another Assasin who betrayed him to help John. Played by William Dafoe). Marcus’ death angered John who was on his way out of the city to return for Viggo.
At this point I must introduce McShane’s character, Winston. Winston acts a mentor to John, and runs one of the Continental Grounds. As a father figure, Winston helps keep John in check as well as offer small tips to stay in the loophole of the laws of their profession. One of the ways was killing a female assassin who worked with Viggo for breaking rule number 2. He also gave John hints on where to find an escaping Viggo. John found and killed Viggo.
At the end of the movie, John got another dog and rode off into the sunset to continue with his retirement having avenged his late wife’s memory.
John Wick is a very interesting movie, one deserving of the accolades it’s got.
Watch out for RR’s review of John Wick 2 tomorrow.
Starring: Alec Baldwin, Steve Buscemi, Tobey McGuire, etc.

Few babies can lay claim to what the titular star of this movie has done.
I dont know how right i am valling The Boss Baby an original idea. Based on a 2010 book of the same name, this movie achieves what it sets out to, i.e. to entertain.
The movie follows the plot of a baby who’s a secret agent in the secret war between babies and puppies.
A certain manufacturer of a fast selling puppy brand hope to make the perfect puppy that people give up in having babies for them. Talking about having babies, this movie makes us understand according to its Genesis 1:1 that, babies come from the sky, more appropriately, a place called Baby Corp. The main competition for this place that mirrors Heaven, is the earthly base of operation for Puppy co. The powers that be at Baby Corp send, The Boss Baby to investigate if Puppy co now has the secret to completing its task, but it actually is his visit that grants them the number one thing they want.
All the twists and turns brings The Boss Baby and his big brother closer, so much that by the time the adventure ended,The Boss Baby was so unfulfilled that he gave up his life of management upstairs for a life with Alex, his brother on earth. Hope you now get my initial joke about heaven and earth?
The Boss Baby was an interesting watch. You should get good number of laughs warching this.
Have you been following the BBC One series – Orphan Black? If yes, you’d very much love the idea of this new series. Seven sisters is set in what I can rightly call the future where the government have imposed a strict one child policy to help curb overpopulation among other inevitable disasters to still befall man. Naomi Rapace plays identical sisters – seven in number. Willam Dafoe plays their father who decided to keep his precious gifts a secret. He is successful until one day a grown up, Monday (the first of the girls) goes out and doesn’t return. The movie is sure to be explosive (no pun intended), the amount of explosions visible in the trailer seemed pretty much. Action is guaranteed. Seven sister all the day!
No released date has been announced yet. RR will keep you posted.
