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.

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.


The Finest Hours Disappoints

The Finest Hours is based on the true story of a ravaging storm, a wrecked oil tanker, a dramatic rescue at sea and a girl – all elements that could thrill but do not. Without the aid of the Digital Age, Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, may not have been able to award The Finest Hours six stars out of 10.


NOTHING BUT LOVE FOR THE HATEFUL EIGHT

It is a rare film that impacts so positively – the director, the acting, the score, the violence, all contribute. Given the glowing review by Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, one is not surprised that The Hateful Eight earns a full 10 out of 10 stars.


Ride Along 2

Ride Along 2 seemed to lack every feature by which a good movie is defined. Fortune’s in-house film critic suffered through the viewing and seemed to have no difficulty whatsoever in awarding the travesty a mere ??? out of 10 stars.


THE REVENANT

There is something to be said about a movie that earns seven out of 10 stars in a “lukewarm” review. Christian Tesfaye, Fortune’s in-house film critic has recognised the cinematographic qualities of The Revenant as one of this film’s high points. Another is Tom Hardy’s performance, though the movie’s theme of resilience is somewhat clichéd and the violence “gratuitous”.


MEBA

This movie about life in an institution for the mentally ill evoked childhood memories of a real life experience. However, for Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, life offered more than Meba, which earned four out of 10 stars.


STAR WARS – THE FORCE AWAKENS A NEW GENERATION

The Star Wars franchise has generated a fan culture that spans generations. Thus, Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, appreciated, enjoyed and awarded the latest movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, an almost perfect nine out of 10 stars.


THE GOOD DINOSAUR CAN BE VIOLENT

While The Good Dinosaur is a benign title, evoking images of a lovable (not extinct in this film), creatures, the 3D animation of this film seems to be a big part of its appeal. Though Fortune’s in-house film critic shares his concern about the rating, and complains about its lack of distinction, The Good Dinosaur earned itself a respectable six out of 10 stars.


BRIDGE OF SPIES CONNECTS HUMANITY

In addition to Tom Hanks’ superb acting, Bridge of Spies is a serious, thought-provoking film that challenges human prejudice and raises the bar on democratic practice. It must have strongly impressed Fortune’s in-house film critic, Christian Tesfaye, who awards it a full 10 out of 10 stars.
