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.

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
