Asking For It Review

Tonally confusing with disconcerting edits, bland dialogue, and low stakes, there is not much here to appreciate. A further issue with Asking For It is the lack of dimension with the characters. That presents a challenge connecting with them. I am a fan of women-led revenge films, but Asking For It misses the mark. 

The Batman Review

In The Batman, Batman (Robert Pattinson) has to stop serial killer the Riddler and unearth the corruption of Gotham and the connection to his family. It sounds impressive, but on its own, The Batman lacks characters to hold interest, yet the thriller noir atmosphere might be enough. I liked the film because I want them to the fantastic world from this one and add in more character development so I can give a damn about more of the characters. Still, I’ve never seen Gotham like this before.

India Sweets and Spices Review

India Sweets and Spices, written and directed by Geeta Malik, will draw plenty of comparisons to Crazy Rich Asians, especially since the film is from the same producers. While both reside in a rich world, the points of view and the plot are different. India Sweets and Spices uses a rich protagonist to tell a story that deals with the fire of youth and the weariness of age. This is also not the story of the white kid rebelling against their child. India Sweets and Spices is funny, chock-full of messy drama but has an underlying heart about topical issues.
