Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River” : The Philosophy and the Deeper Meaning

Clint Eastwood’s “Mystic River” : The Philosophy and the Deeper Meaning

Clint Eastwood’s disturbing yet surreal thriller Mystic River is one of my favorite films of all time. We all know how brilliant the execution was and how well the cast did in the movie. Some consider it as the movie with the “best” lead ensemble cast – Sean Penn and Tim Robbins won Oscars for Best Actor and Supporting Actor respectively, a first for any film after BenHur (1959). But what shook me most was…

Has Manoj Night Shyamalan Finally Hit Form With His Psycho-thriller “Split” ?!

Manoj Night Shyamalan was known as the God of twisted tales once.

Poltergeist (1982) – Why It Is The Most Cursed Movie Of All Time!

The Poltergeist movie franchise started way back in 1982 and the first movie is still considered a classic. A reboot of the classic 1982 horror film Poltergeist came out last year, but let’s be honest: nothing could compare to the original.
