Bringing to you touching movie reviews nay moving reviews that comes straight from the bottom of the heart of a genuine movie lover; Straight From a Movie is much more than what it appears to be. Originally started as a movie quotes website, SFAM has been able to gradually expand its wings towards movie reviews and aftermath explanatory discussions.
The primal intent is to cover up movies as they come on the big screen, and shower peerless love for all the good ones on them dry pages. At the same time, if something leaves a sour taste, not to hold back from decimating it. Yeah! I know it sucks but a man’s gotta do, what he’s gotta do.
So why call movie reviews, moving reviews? Now that question makes me nostalgic. My love for movies dates back to that instant etched in time wherein I recall being flabbergasted beyond limit by the sheer concept of movie.
My first movie Jurassic Park was what created that ounce of amazement that I am yet to put a name to. I was barely 5 when I had seen the movie, and it brought into action those dead sleeping cells of awe. Then there was no stopping me. And I am an unstoppable force hitherto. My sense of wonderment arises from genuine heartfelt emotions that makes me live every movie as if it’s a life of its own.

Whoever said one is enough. In a world of sequels, prequels and spinoffs, where more is considered to be better, Despicable Me 3 movie storms in like a flick that has still got some juice left. Well, who knew it really had! There are still plenty of things to milk, even though there was supposed to be a happy ending after every part. Plots are layered up deliberately to build ...Read More
Konkana Sen Sharma’s debut A Death in the Gunj is a beautiful take of the neglected. It is so realistic and uncontrived that it makes you wonder why Konkana didn’t pick up direction in the first place. There was a director in her all this time, and it is so darn good that it instantly places her amongst the elite. A Death in the Gunj also gives us an opportunity ...Read More
Dark Universe's The Mummy movie is Universal's epic fail. For most parts, it is scrounging for a plot, galloping forward with an out of focus story, at the same time trying to delve into an impending universe. It doesn't retain the magic the original Mummy had. Neither does it have the power to sustain on its own, nor does it carry any chemistry to even let you feel anything for ...Read More
Hindi Medium is a satire on India's current education system. While there are people who are against reservation system and wish to eradicate it completely, there are some who clearly think otherwise. Even though it's a topic debatable, that's not supposed to be the actual theme of the movie. It is how the rich have been trampling down the poor by hogging on their bread. Hindi Medium tries to show ...Read More
I wasn't expecting much when I went to watch the Baywatch movie. In my defense, all I needed was a good laugh. Somehow I was convinced even though the movie wasn't going to be that great, it would be funny at least. But boy was I disappointed. It is just downright cheesy, daft and so not funny. Characters in Baywatch Movie All these characters that are created just to pay ...Read More
It is done! Patty Jenkins manages to do what Zack Snyder and David Ayer failed to conquer with DCEU. Wonder Woman Movie finally breaks DC's relentless curse and establishes a proper stronghold in its very own universe. Wonder Woman is everything we expected our superhero to be like, and Gal Gadot does her a resounding justice once again after her badass cameo in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice last year. Gal ...Read More

Hacksaw Ridge Movie is a game changer for those who think taking lives is alright. It is powerful enough to stand against ideologies, makes you want to question your belief, and puts the right thoughts that brazen heads tend to overlook. There is nothing noble in war. It swallows everything ...Read More
It is hard to put a movie in words when there is much to say and you know no matter what you say, it would never be enough. Paterson movie is for every poet out there, who is constantly humming to the hidden metres of life. It is for all the ...Read More
Colossal movie isn't really a monster flick. So if you are rushing into the theatres just to see a Kaiju and Robot stand off, I would say don't. Also, if you don't like movies with hidden meanings, or if you are too shallow to understand poetic vibes, metaphors, and profound ...Read More
How many times did we see M. Night Shyamalan fall? Like an ant falling with food every now and then but trying again nevertheless. Split movie is his one shot that hit home run after more than a decade of movie making. He has finally grabbed hold of that 'mojo' ...Read More

The Lobster Movie is a stunning satire. It is a metaphor on relationships, of how humans are always under constant peer pressure of finding that one true soul mate that has the same mental disability or defining characteristic as theirs. It is a society that’s divided into two major factions ...Read More
In a parochial world of male-chauvinism, parched stay the women. Parched for a little place in the world. Parched for teensy droplets of hope in a male dominant society. A rustic village of feeble minds constantly gnaws at them, laughs brazenly at their winds of change. But despite everything that ...Read More
The Little Prince happened to me in the form of this movie. I didn’t have a clue, a story so colossal hid all this time from me. Le Petit Prince, the original product of the extraordinary brain of Antoine de Saint-Exupery, was published in the year 1943. It has found ...Read More
I have been meaning to write the review of Me and Earl and the Dying Girl for so long that it makes me sad to see it stand waiting for so long, in the backcloth of my mind, hungry for appreciation. It deserves adulation. It deserves your attention. My sole ...Read More

An enchanting flick! PLOT OF BIG EYES Big Eyes is in a way reflective of a feeling every artist goes through when someone else steals credit for their work. It is a crime that Walter Keane, played superbly by Christoph Waltz, commits without batting an eye and Margaret Keane, portrayed ...Read More
Chinchilla! Frank is so much more than a stark psychotic drama. It is a heightened dig into the heads of brilliant characters you might have trouble getting a proper read on. It is loosely inspired on the life of Frank Sidebottom (Chris Sievey) and has been curdled fictitiously into a gorgeous account ...Read More
Asterix and the gang ventures into 3D animated waters for the first time, and I must say it was quite delightful to watch them breathe alive on the big screen. All those big shiny noses and their clumsy acts look just brilliant in CGI. Asterix and Obelix: Mansion of the ...Read More
What We Did on Our Holiday is downright adorable. What makes this movie a hoot? Three adorable children who comprehend the world with their own little brains, see relationships with their own beady innocent eyes, and act on their reckless instincts and innocent unbloomed knowledge. What We Did on Our ...Read More
Russell Crowe’s first big directorial venture isn’t a fiasco. It is good but there are so many things that stop it from being great. The Water Diviner is a movie that starts off with exceptional score, awesome direction and then later dwindles into mediocrity in its main course, only to ...Read More
