Deadpool review idiagress

Deadpool is full of so many takedowns that at times it was tiring to keep track of all of them. At least a dozen instances during the movie, based on the structure of the scene and the emphasis on the dialog, I got a feeling that this was more than just a joke, and it …

Raazi Hindi Movie Poster

Initial impressions of Raazi revolve around patriotism veering on the side of jingoism, however what unfolds on the screen is a deeply personal story, of the toll a conflict takes on individuals, questioning the boundaries of faith, love, loyalty, respect and above all duty.

I took the cart, then the gallop then the rope, my bare hands breaking, healing, firming, that grip of mine I climbed, I climbed on As I reach some solace, the stage where I camp, the grimmer greater summit stares down on me, glares at me, mocks me, challenges me the resolve to climb, the …
