I watched Jurassic Park (1993) a few weeks after my birth. I don’t remember the experience of course. 😋 I have owned the VCR, VCD, DVD, Blu-ray, and 3D versions of the same. I know its crazy but circumstances.



I own over 500 Blu-rays and 300 DVDs, some of them are replacements. 🙂 However, currently, I devour on Netflix, Amazon prime and hotstar.

I review anything and everything under the sun. For the time being, I am not taking in guest posts as the blog is still under ther organizing process. If you have any suggestion, please do drop an email: reelisticviews@gmail.com


Update on review sections: Earlier, I wrote reviews in a traditional way with ratings and the context is limited to the film’s overall appeal. With a new year comes new ideas. From this year I have changed the style and policy. I write reviews from an analytical point of view with references. The change is made since avengers: infinity war.

You can take a look at my old writings from the archive section.

Usually, reviews are short and sweet but will also include page breaks for long reviews. Warning will be issued in case there are spoilers.

Proto-feminist analysis

Being someone from the fairer sex, I analyze films from a feminist POV as well. At the end of the day, it is just a movie but as someone from a society that worships films and actors, it is essential to put forward good messages. I give extra rating for those film that break stereotypes in terms of depiction of women, men, and LGBTQIA communities.



Along with that, I reduce marks for those films which glorify racist contexts, sexism, hyper, regressive plot-points and which do not prioritize marginalized section when it comes to the films based on social causes.



I am also partial towards the films that used exceptional practical effects for visual wonder and reduce marks for those which use excess CGI, the kind that gives you a headache. At the same time, cinematography, editing, sound effects, music, production design, costume-makeup etc are given extra attention.


I am a harsh critic. I give no partiality towards any popular film, favorite actors, actresses, directors or milestones. At the same time, reviews are purely based on my thoughts, you are welcome to contradict but in a civilized manner.

    Hi, Karthika. My name is Sarah, and I’m a film producer. I’ve made several short films that have previously been featured at AFI (https://youtu.be/lF46NzL5sTs), and I’m getting in touch with you today to talk to you about my latest short. It’s called Servants of Sex, and you can check out the Indigogo page here (http://bit.ly/2cJAiMT). The film is a comedy about two guys who try to convert to different religions to try to find love. I notice that you often write about these types of quirky films. Right now, we’re trying to secure funding for its very modest budget through Indigogo. It would be great if you would consider writing a post about the film, sharing it with your followers, or even donating. We have some pretty exciting perks for film aficionados and hipsters alike. Once again, any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated. I know you are very busy, so thank you in advance for checking out our film (http://bit.ly/2cJAiMT), and please let us know if you have any questions.
