The Lion King (2019) S. Indra Sathiabalan All in, this is a movie that will make you laugh, then cry. Ultimately, you are left with awe at this circle of life. But like the recently-released live-action remake of Aladdin, this live-action version offers nothing new other than nostalgia. EDIT

Posted Mar 25, 2019
Alpha (2018) S. Indra Sathiabalan Though the humans speak in a language that requires subtitles, the actors do manage to convey their emotions very well. Go in with no expectations, and enjoy this movie for what it is. EDIT
