Swoon away ladies (and men!) as McDreamy takes the spotlight in Bridget Jones’s Baby.

By: Muneeb Arshid

I’m sure the only reason that was needed for specific fans to go watch Bridget Jones’s Baby, was the fact that McDreamy (Patrick Dempsey) himself has a major starring role in the film. There would be no other reason for the specific demographic of 18-65 year-old women to go watch the next installment in this series. Okay, fine, the old movies might have drawn some of the crowd back this time around, but it certainly helps that the former Grey’s Anatomy star is in this film.

Sully is just another vehicle for Tom Hanks’ “hero role complex”

By: Muneeb Arshid

Apollo 13. The DaVinci Code series (Sigh!!). Saving Private Ryan. Captain Phillips. What do all these films have in common? Well, let me just tell you that right now. It’s the inherent “hero complex” of America’s favourite actor, Mr Tom Hanks. Tom Hanks has seemingly decided that the only roles he wants to take on are those that allow him to portray an American hero. With Bridge of Spies last year and the upcoming Inferno joining his latest venture, Sully, in 2016, that “hero hypothesis” certainly seems to become more and more a fact.

Hell or High Water review: A simple, thrilling, perfect genre flick.

By: Muneeb Arshid

I know, I know, how dare I take away Tom Hanks‘ thunder while he’s busy portraying the latest American civilian hero. I promise that review will come this weekend. However, no disrespect to Mr Hanks, but I doubt his new film, Sully, will actually come close to the intensely comedic, yet thrilling, Hell or High Water.

The Light Between Oceans is like a Nicholas Sparks film but just higher in quality.

By: Muneeb Arshid

The end of August/beginning of September period is usually reserved for those films that are vying to enter the coveted Autumn Oscar season, but just don’t have the quality to be considered for those ranks. There are very few films, pre-September, that actually make it onto the awards ballots come January. One such film, which is so obviously trying to garner that exposure, is The Light Between Oceans
