Review: Mortdecai is Johnny Depp's worst film

Review: Mortdecai is Johnny Depp's worst film

It is difficult to understand why Johnny Depp agreed to make Mortdecai, says Paloma Sharma. Lord Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) -- an aristocrat, art dealer and moustache aficionado -- is a character so stereotypically English that one would think an Indian wrote him as a joke, as a sort of revenge for the almost 200 years of colonization. Reeling under debt, yet unable to give up his lavish lifestyle, Mortdecai is enlisted by MI5’s Inspector Martland (Ewan McGregor) to track down a ..., 3 days ago

Review: Alone is better left that way

Alone is as good as a B-grade film, featuring several sequences that are very corny, says Paloma Sharma. The case in point today, ladies and gents, is a most unusual one. This pale-faced, pale-eyed being has been popping up on telly and cinema hall screens for a while now.  Let's have a look at her file, shall we?  Common Name: Bhoot, Sanjana, Anjana, Bipasha, Woh.  Latin Name: Homo Undeadus  Habitat: Old mansions, abandoned rooms, shallow graves, protagonist's ...

Review: Big Eyes is a GREAT film

Big Eyes easily evokes a mix of fascination and empathy and you just can't stop looking, says Paloma Sharma. "For most of history, Anonymous was a woman," said Virginia Woolf. But such was not the case with Margaret. Margaret was not nameless; her paintings were signed with her last name 'Keane'. And so were her husband's. Tim Burton's Big Eyes tells the true tale of an art fraud of epic proportions with Margaret Keane (played by Amy Adams) at the centre of it. Margaret Keane, formerly ...

Review: Taken 3 takes logic for granted

The worse thing about Taken 3 is that it hints at a sequel, says Paloma Sharma. I loved Taken. I'm not ashamed to admit it. Taken was special for every girl who, as the cycle goes, felt the distance between her and her father, the man most of us hero-worship as children, increase.Taken told us that no matter what happened or how much we fought, daddy was just a call away.Then Taken 2 came along, and like a needy younger sibling, it ruined that sense of security. Taken 2 took us for granted.

Review: Woman in Black 2 is scary but not truly horrifying

The Woman in Black: Angel of Death gets predictable real quick, says Paloma Sharma.Welcome back to Eel Marsh House. The tide is expected to come in at four. The Woman is expected to come too. All attempts at escaping are futile. Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) is a young caretaker who, along with senior school teacher Jean Hogg (Helen McCory), is given the charge of evacuating children who lost their parents to German bombs that landed on London, to the English countryside. And where else should ...

21 cosplayers reveal their day jobs

Paloma Sharma asked some of the cosplayers of Mumbai Comic Con to tell us what they did when they weren't dressed up in costumes. We recently brought you these images of cosplayers -- participants who dress up as their favourite fictional character -- from Mumbai Comic Con.

Review: Main Aur Mr Riight is avoidable

Main Aur Mr Riight is a tad too pretentiously philosophical to be taken seriously, says Paloma Sharma."Pyau, pyau, pyau," Sing the six sidekicks of Aliya Raj (Shenaz Treasurywala), while Aliya and Sukhi (Barun Sobti) look into the distance and imagine how their first meeting would have been if Aliya wasn't paying him to be her boyfriend.  Main Aur Mr Riight is the story of an obssessive compulsive casting director in her late twenties who is constantly badgered by her friends to find a man ...

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay will move and disturb you

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 is an extremely frustrating film, feels Paloma Sharma. The third of four installments in what was supposed to be a trilogy, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 makes for an excellent mirror to our world and warns against the politics of the 1 percent. As has been the trend with other best sellers, the makers of the Hunger Games series chose to divide the final book into two halves when adapting it to screen, and ended up killing an awful amount of ...

Review: Horrible Bosses 2 is an all-out entertainer

Horrible Bosses 2 has a stronger script and funnier gags than the first film, says Paloma Sharma. After attempting to (unsuccessfully) murder their bosses in the previous film, Nick (Jason Bateman), Kurt (Jason Sudeikis) and Dale (Charlie Day) are back in business. Only this time, they aren't just employees. They are the bosses. Horrible Bosses 2 brings back the same cast and crew after three years, albeit with a few major changes. For starters, it replaces Seth Gordon with Sean Anders in the ...

Review: Nightcrawler could crawl its way to the Oscars

It is difficult to find fault with a film so engrossing, notes Paloma Sharma after watching Jake Gyllenhaal starrer Nightcrawler.Writer-director Dan Gilroy takes something as simple as the morning news and peels back the dusty cellophane that was taped to the surface, revealing maggots that feed on the rot inside, in his directorial debut, Nightcrawler. Louis, a skilled thief, desperately wants to leave behind his faceless, stagnant existence and find himself a job somewhere (read: anywhere) ...
