The beautiful animation style was the cherry on the top with the equally good storyline and you will glad to know that it even got an academy award in the best animated film category. It is made in a way that, viewers will feel like they are reading a comic book on the big screen, some shots are made at 12 frames per second to make it choppy and more feels like a 2d comic book style. Watch it if you want to try some different and unique animation style and wants to experience the story of Miles Morales

Watch it if you haven’t as its one of the finest films of Tarantino.
Inception was released in 2010 and considered as a mindf**k film which leads us to think about the film more and more, Christopher Nolan writes and directs this film and is one of the best works of him.

Once I was feeling low and then I watched this film, and the rest of the day I feel joyed and pumped up. This film is a seriously motivational film and the premise of the film is compelling and mindblowing.
