Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising Worst Time for Tastelessness


Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising is referred to by Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye as out of keeping with the observations of this holy month. Apparently, there was not much on offer for this sequel to earn more than four stars out of 10.


The Nice Guys is for Smart Folks

The Nice Guys scores points on all the essential elements of a good movie – plot (despite being ‘pleasantly warped‘), acting, and directing. It was therefore not difficult for Fortune’s in-house critic, Christian Tesfaye to award it a whopping seven out of 10 stars.


Warcraft: A Game for Simple Minds

Disappointment is an understatement, considering what is expected from the movie’s talented director, Duncan Jones. However, even he was defeated by Warcraft, an adaptation of a video game. Fortune’s in-house film critic compared the movie to a stomach ache and gave it three out of 10 stars.


Money Monster’s: Scoundrels of Corporate Greed

Julia Roberts, Angelina Jolie, Jodie Foster, George Clooney are some of the Hollywood heavyweights involved in making Money Monster, a movie about “anarchic capitalism”. But Fortune’s in-house critic, Christian Tesfaye, points out that great actors are not always good directors. Money Monster therefore earns only half marks – five stars out of 10.


Captain America: Civil War A Case of Brutal Infighting

It might be full of plot holes, overwhelmed by superheroes and interesting points are lost along the way. But for its refreshingly philosophical treatment of a sub-theme and potential to have been a better movie, Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, though not nuts about Captain America: Civil War, awarded it six stars out of 10.


Precious Cargo: Quality Time in a Dark Room

Precious Cargo quickly falls to the critic’s sword as the worst film Christian Tesfaye, Fortune’s in-house film reviewer has had the luckless opportunity to watch and review. Despite starring Bruce Willis, the movie was simply unable to earn more than two stars out of 10.


The Huntsman: Winter’s War A Story Not Well Told

One would be forgiven for exclaiming, ‘Ouch!’ at Fortune in-house film critic’s view of The Huntsman: Winter’s War as “a bunch of pretty actors in pretty clothes having a great…


FILM REVIEW: The Boss is Immoral

Distasteful, fuelling ignorance, less than mundane, are some of the sentiments recalled by Fortune in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye to describe The Boss. They explain why the film could be awarded no more than three out of 10 stars.


Queen of the Desert: Remarkable Woman Unlucky in Love

Half time into Queen of the Desert, a quarter of the audience had walked out of “Herzog’s most watchable film”. Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, was not among them but was sufficiently absorbed to give this movie eight out of 10 stars.


Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice A Noisy Battle

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice got poor reviews from other critics. But Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, concluded that for its very nice scenes and adequate writing, the movie deserved a score of five out of 10 stars.


Kung Fu Panda 3: Needs More Po Action

Kung Fu Panda 3 evoked neither content nor discontent and was mediocre. But the movie was entertaining and the score written by ‘one of the greatest living film composers of our time.’ Those factors helped Fortune’s in-house film reviewer, Christian Tesfaye, award it six out of 10 stars.


Kung Fu Panda 3: Needs More Po Action

Kung Fu Panda 3 evoked neither content nor discontent and was mediocre. But the movie was entertaining and the score written by ‘one of the greatest living film composers of our time.’ Those factors helped Fortune’s in-house film reviewer, Christian Tesfaye, award it six out of 10 stars.


ZOOTOPIA

Human beings still strive to create Utopia but the animals have done it. Fortune’s in-house film reviewer, Christian Tesfaye, is sufficiently impressed by the creation of Zootopia to award this animated movie nine out of 10 stars.


OSCAR,GUMMA AWARDS NOT ALWAYS SPOT ON

It may be Fortune readers’ turn to award stars, as in-house film reviewer, Christian Tesfaye, chose to focus on a post mortem of the Oscars and Gumma. It is a rich critique but how many stars should he be awarded?


DEADPOOL

Refreshing, eccentric, bold and humourous are but some of the adjectives used to describe Deadpool. Despite the blood and nudity, Fortune’s in-house film reviewer, Christian Tesfaye is clearly captivated and awards Deadpool a well-deserved seven out of 10 stars.


How to Be Single Sucks

The point of this film got lost somewhere in the action. It is also not clear why Fortune’s in-house film reviewer, Christian Tesfaye, thinks attractive women should not have guy problems. This may be why How to Be Single was awarded only four out of 10 stars.
