Terminator: Dark Fate

Arnold’s biceps is something that doesn’t need any visual effects, it looks fabulously magnetic in an IMAX screen. The director Tim Miller’s version of Terminator is well.. Tim Miller-esque. Also, over the years we’ve all had our versions of Terminator. Just like we would think of any other infamous franchise that catches our eyes.. nay,…

Desperado

The one-liners, I can see, would make the whole screen scream for Antonio Banderas, I know I would. The director Robert Rodriguiz cannot get my attention enough. And I love it.

Kill Bill Vol. 2

The end of the line, no more circles, no more juggling, this circus show has a speech for its last act. Tarantino’s second and final volume of this gore-y tape is a profound quest for balance. I cannot emphasize more on how beautifully does this satisfying sequel carries the first one. If you were a…
