HBO Max’s Locked Down – Review

And on that day, Lockdown will end Locked Down is the first movie to represent the current times, it is an honest but unimpressive attempt at capturing the feel and the state of mind of people living in lock down. Directed by Doug Liman, and written by Steven Knight Locked Down stars Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway and Independent Spirit Award winner Chiwetel Ejiofor as its two main leads, and tells the story of a couple who are attempting a heist of a 3 Million Pounds worth Diamond during the lockdown. Locked Down - Story? Credit - HBO Max The story is charming and funny at times, but it does drag on quite a bit like the main motive of the movie starts after 1 hour into a 2-hour movie and that's never a good sign, but if we keep aside all the flaws aside and I am telli...

WandaVision: Episode 1 & 2 – Review

Aren't we a fine pair? Hello humans this is Cinemablind and today we are going to review Marvel's first series on Disney+ WandaVision premiere episodes. The whole review is spoiler-free, so read it and go watch the series, or read it after watching the series. The first-ever series to exist in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), WandaVision has premiered on Disney+ today with its first two episodes and they are a little unconventional but they set up the series perfectly.

Cobra Kai Season 3 – Review

Cobra Kai Season 3 is the New Year's gift from Netflix and it doesn't disappoint. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LcDQqGJG8pA After being scrapped at YouTube Originals just after two seasons because of YouTube's own reasons, Cobra Kai found a home at Netflix, just like Lucifer. Cobra Kai Season 3 aired on Netflix on the 1st of January, 2021, which is almost two years after the second season aired on YouTube Originals. Cobra Kai Season 3 - Story? Cobra Kai has always been that mixture of ridiculousness and heart, and it doesn't veer far from that. Every episode has that one memorable moment, if not many. We see a lot of characters from Karate Kid 2, and we also see Ali Mills (Elisabeth Shue) which was teased at the end of Season 2. Season 3 has many intriguing, stupid but ent...

Netflix’s The Babysitter: Killer Queen – Review!! (more stupid, less funny)

Oh, no it's all gonna get fucked up again. Today I streamed Netflix's The Babysitter: Killer Queen, sequel to The Babysitter (2017), and as we all guessed after watching the trailer, it's even worse than its predecessor. The Babysitter (2017) was funnier and less stupid than its sequel.  Credit - Netflix   The Babysitter: Killer Queen's script was that bad, that it was like it was written by a two-year-old, going through puberty. There are many bad cringe moments, the plot was a big dark hole where the story got lost. Also, the direction didn't suit the movie. It's a slasher movie, where almost every shot is beautiful and the stars filled the sky.   The acting in this movie will make you miss the old one. Every actor is just so bad in this movie, even Robie Amell who wa...
