Overall Review:
After departure from Marvel Studios ‘Ant-Man’, Edgar Wright pulls back with his latest action-packed production “Baby Driver” that tells the story of a getaway driver named “Baby”. The plot of the film is pretty straight forward, a direct homage to a specific genre of film, in this case, the heist movie. Film ticks from the opening scene itself; first car chase that sets the pace beautifully...

Overall Review:
Passengers is directed by Morten Tyldum and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne. The theme of the film is loneliness & the concept of the film is excellent & thought provoking but is wasted on a pretty generic, relatively bland and silly script. The film is predictable with part love, survival, space odyssey stories...

Overall Review: Flying direct from the world of video games, The Angry Birds finally makes their big screen debut in a bold, bright and colorful film for kids and adults.
