Me Time - Netflix Movie Review

All of us want some “me time” every now and then. In the context of working men vs. stay at home women, it is almost like a privilege that is showered on the latter by the earning male member of the house. It is not just unusual but also societally inappropriate for a father to be a house husband and rear the family while the lady love gets to work and earns the dough. The film “Me Time” is a typical characterisation of one such stay-at home dad, his wife, two kids, a long lost friend and how eventually it makes sense of the much-hyped “Me Time” that many of us crave for, quite often.   Sonny Fisher (Kevin Hart) has a daily routine; get the kids ready to school, make breakfast for his wife Maya (Regina Hall), drop the kids at their school and undertake voluntary work at the same school, which he feels is a part of community service. Regina’s boss at the architecture firm Armanda Zavala (Luiz Gerard Mendez) feels very high of her and in a party, not just does he showers praises on her w

The Nest – Movie Review

If you know an Entrepreneur or know one, then it’s quite easy to relate to this film. In the last scene, the wife of the protagonists says “ Stop ”… even as he tries to make yet another escapade. It’s one thing to be a self-made professional or a first-gen Entrepreneur, but it’s equally important to know when and where to stop. The Nest is all about this. Rory O’Hara (Jude Law) is married to Allison (Carrie Coon), an American and they live a middle class New York city life. Benjamin (Charlie Shotwell) is their son together while Samantha (Oona Roche) is Allisson’s teenage daughter from her first marriage. Allison teaches horse riding and is extremely passionate about her horses, especially Richmond, the black beauty. Rory makes her morning coffee daily and one day announces that they should move back to Britain, where he hails from. He has an offer to join his former employer though Allison is uncomfortable with the idea as he has shown no success in trying with his entrepreneurial ide

The Wrath of Man – Film Review

There is nothing bigger than a remorse when one loses his/her child. In this fictitious account of one such man, we see emotions flying from a loving dad in memory of his son.   Mason Hargreaves (Jason Statham) is a crime warlord with his group of colleagues Mike (Darrell D’Silva), Brendan (Cameroon Jack) and Moggy (Babs Olusanmokun). While overseeing one such heist of a Cash Truck, his son Dougie (Eli Brown) is shot down by the masked perpetrators. He is also shot down to death, though he recovers from the wound. He joins the Cash pick-up firm Fortico through the influence of team leader Terry Rossi (Eddie Marsan). Though he barely passes the required tests to join the fleet, he somehow scrapes through the marks. His colleagues Dave Hancock (Josh Hartnet) and Dana Curtis (Niamh Algar) are suspicious of his motives but none are able to find out anything about his past. The company’s trainer Haiden Bullet Blaire (Holt McCallany) names the new joinee as H and is part of the crew to pick
