Initial release: 18 July 2008
Director: Christopher Nolan
Running time: 152 min
The Film Guide | Movie Review English Cast:  Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Aaron Eckhart

Written by :  Noor Ul Ain Fatima

If you're looking for some mind blowing Action Drama Thriller and Sci-Fi Movie, then Christopher Nolan's one of the highest grossing 'THE DARK KNIGHT' is the right movie to watch. Batman isn't a comic book anymore. The Dark Knight is a hauled film that leaps beyond its origin and becomes an engrossing tragedy.

Dark Knight is the second movie of Dark Knight Trilogy in which a Mysterious and Psychopath Criminal "THE JOKER" starts spreading Crime in the Gotham with his Evil Mastermind. The most interesting thing about this villain and why he is hailed as the most iconic villain in the history is that he doesn't want anything materialistic like Honor, Respect, Fame, Money or Authority and he doesn't believe in any of this. He just loves Crime.

The Movie is bit Sentimental in some parts too. A Touch of Sci-Fi with advance gadgets specially the famous BAT MOBILE. You can't ignore the role of Hans Zimmer the Music Producer who produced such a goose bump giving soundtrack. 

The movie was nominated for 8 Oscars in 2009 and won 2 of them. One of them won by deceased actor Heath Ledger who played Joker in this movie. He died before the movie made its first show. He won the Oscar for "The Best Actor in Supporting Role". 

This Movie is still hailed as The Greatest Superhero Movie of all time. It is among the top 4 of the Highest rated movie list of IMDB given the rating of 9.0 and 94% rating by Rotten Tomatoes .

Movie Review Revenge (2017) with Latest Movie Ratings

Never take your mistress on an annual guys' getaway, especially one devoted to hunting - a violent lesson for three wealthy married men.

 Gone Girl
(2014) on IMDb

Latest Movie Ratings

Initial release: 11 May 2018
Director:  Coralie Fargeat
Running time: 108 minutes

The Film Guide | Movie Review English Cast:  Matilda Anna Ingrid Lutz, Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe

I am a big fan of I spit on your grave and Revenge is a little gem from the same genre. As the name suggests it is based on vengeance. A mistress of a wealthy man, wrong-done and raped by his friends, gets back at them in a manner punctuated with gore and fury. If you have issues with gore, torture, blood, open wounds and full frontal nudity, then this might not be your piece of cake. It is however, directed, written and paced beautifully and is a very taut and visually pleasing piece of cinema.
Matilda Anna acts aptly as the leading lady and looks hot as well. Kevin Janssens is strong, ruthless and at times too naked :D. 
For parents, this movie has a suggestive rape situation and at least 15 minutes of full frontal nudity which is graphic and not suitable for children under the age of 16 in my humble opinion.
All in all, a movie worth your time and with a comfortable 108 minutes, it isn't even too long. Enjoy!

The Film Guide | Movie Review English

Written by: Celina Saqib

A powerful on screen drama that reminds us, many times in our life things go out of hand and beyond our control but hope is the essence of life that gives our life true meaning and spirit.
The film portrays the story of two imprisoned men (Robbins as Andy Dufresne & Freeman as Ellis ``Red`` Redding) bond over a number of years, finding comfort and eventual repossession through acts of common decency. Andy Dufresne a banker by profession is wrongfully sentenced to severe two lifelong incarcerations for killing his wife and her lover. While trying to establish his place in the jail Andy finds solace in the friendship he forms with fellow inmate, Ellis ``Red`` and gets a prison job complimenting his talent as a banker. Red goes through three appeals and in the third appeal he gets a release. Overtime Andy finds ways to live out life with relative ease as one can in a prison, leaving a message for all of us that while the body may be locked away in a cell, the spirit can never be truly imprisoned. The movie writer very smartly shows the several aspects of life in a prison.
It’s truly a motivational story as it never fails to make you feel better in darkest moments of life and The Shawshank Redemption uplifts you in ways that you can’t find in movies today.

Movie Review Ocean's 8 (2018) : How promising does the all-girl cast look?

The Film Guide : Movie Review Ocean's 8 (2018)

Cast: Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Sarah Paulson, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, and Awkwafina

Genre: Comedy, Action

Being a great fan of the franchise and having loved Ocean's 11, Ocean's 12 and Ocean's 13, I am on one hand looking forward to this spin off of the 2001 Ocean's 11 and on the other a little apprehensive of the all-girl star cast. The Ocean's franchise has introduced to us chivalry and class of a certain order. It is yet to be seen if the female appeal can equal the suave and charming aura that left us in awe of the original 11. The cast is no doubt a class act as a group. Would they be able to justify the legacy of the franchise is a question that would be answered only after the release. The trailer looks promising and the production value seems up to the mark. Let's keep our fingers crossed for the release early June 2018. The Film Guide wishes this star cast the best of luck!
