Predestination – Let’s get mind fucked

predestination

predestination

Predestination is a recently released English Sci fi film staring my favorite Ethan Hawke and Sarah Snook in the lead.

This is an incredibly crafted creative film which contains all the aspects of a Sci fi thriller. This predominantly deals with time travel and the twist at the end will leave you mind fucked.

The spierig brothers have done a great job with directing such a unique film.  The acting from the leads were top notch. The story is original and unique and Climax is breathtaking.

This is a treat to science fiction fans. Time travel movies can sometimes be boring with multiple loopholes and defying logics.  But this one is beautifully narrated and that makes it a must watch in my list.

My Verdict : 4.5 Stars (4.5 / 5)

One among the top ten movies in 2014!!

Jessabelle – Movie Review

Jessabelle

Jessabelle

Jessabelle is a recently released English feature film under genre Horror. It has Sarah as its star cast who played a memorable role in the film Predestination.

It follows the similar formula of horror films and much used cliches to scare the audience.    Story is okayish but the screenplay is disappointing. The movie tries to end on a high note similar to Skeleton Key but fails miserably at it.

The acting is good but overall the movie misses something which makes it a below average one.

Verdict 1.5 Stars (1.5 / 5)

Watch it if you are bored and got nothing else to watch.

Ouija – Movie Review

image

Ouija is a horror film released few months ago in Hollywood. It doesn’t star big names of Hollywood but has a decent cast with small screen fame.

It is a typical Hollywood horror movie which follows the conventional plot with flashbacks and cliché scares for the audience.

The movie is about two friends,  one of whom mysteriously commits suicide and the other one tries to investigate along with the boyfriend and what follows in the movie is completely predictable.

The soundtrack is dull and doesn’t do good for the movie.  The casting and acting is average.

Overall the movie doesn’t offer anything new which has already been explored in horror genre. This can be skipped.

My Verdict : 2 Stars (2 / 5)

Guardians of the galaxy – Review

Guardians of galaxy is the most recent flick from marvel studio based on the comic by same name.  I had the privilege to watch it in fdfs when it released in India also I had a chance to watch it in Blu-ray yesterday.

Guardians_of_the_Galaxy_43660

The film starts on a sad note with a kid being taken away from his dying mother and family. But picks up pace and becomes a non stop entertainer.

The casting is perfect and each role is done with perfection. The CGI is top notch and Rocket voiced by Bradley is just another level delivering some super cool punch dialogues.

Movie is a awesome blend of sentiment romance fun comedy and to top it off the soundtrack played in awesome mix volume 1&2are just outstanding.

I never thought Bautista and Chris Pratt can pull it off when I heard the casting of this movie but I stand corrected. Chris with his comical timing just nails his role.

With superhero flicks raising the bar and standards everyday this movie comes as a surprise package and delivers. This is a must watch film because there is never a dull moment in it.

My Verdict : 5 Stars (5 / 5)

Step Up All in — Review

Step Up All In

Step Up All in is the fifth installment of the dance/romance themed Step up franchise.

This Movie is all about stars from previous installment joining together to win the competition. Yes same like always and all the movies of this franchise  previously 😛 . But if u think it is like that you are wrong, as the lead cast gives a dialogue that its all about doing what you love and not about competition. Yet they win the competition at the end.

This Movie does have some catchy and acrobatic dance movies. But emotionless cast and dancers who cant act makes this movie less than mediocre. A silly and fully predictable plot is a big minus in this movie. Even scribbles of a kid can make a better movie plot than this one.

If you really want to watch some crazy dance moves and drama along with it, you can turn to reality shows based on dance. This movie is a pure waste of time.

I really hope they shut shop for this franchise as it isn’t going anywhere with stupids sequels like this.

My Verdict: 1 Stars (1 / 5)

22 Jump Street – Review

22 Jump Street is a sequel to the successful comedy film 21 jump Street staring channing Tatum and Jonah Hill.

This film also follows the same formula as of its predecessor where our stars in mid thirties go on a undercover mission at a college to bust open the drug mafia.

The chemistry between the Co stars is amazing which is a big positive in this film. There are some fun moments in the film and crazy dialogues which brings laughter to the audience.  Also the typical bikinis and booze is also part of the film.

The fat female villan is totally unfunny and the thing which surprised me was the crazy credits.  So much of creativity oozed in making those awesome credits.

Overall this movie is a one time watch for folks who watch movie to get entertained.

My Verdict :3 Stars (3 / 5)

Interstellar Review – A Journey to the Unknown

inter

Here I am  penning down my views on Interstellar, the most awaited Film of the year.

NOLAN the name which became a household name after the Dark Knight Trilogy & who took us to Dream in Epic Proportions in his movie Inception comes up with this grandiose space saga which deals with Love, sacrifice, survival of human race.

He takes us to a non stop grand journey into the unknown and keeps us glued to the screen & gives us a grand visual treat. The background score by Hans Zimmer is second best to none .

The casting was perfect and the child actress who portrays Murphy and Mathew who plays Cooper steal the show along with the Robot TARS.

The Movie throws so many scientific theories and terms which may not be grasped at the first watch by normal movie goers. But the core of the film deals with the human element, the sentiment, family bonding and true love.

Over all this movie is a awesome one with beautiful CGI and leaves the watchers speechless at the end. Some drawbacks according to me was regarding the Tesseract and Dr.Mann’s (Matt Damon) sudden intention change while being in that planet. So i had cut half of the stars for it 😀

My Verdict: 4.5 Stars (4.5 / 5)

It is a Must Watch for SCI FI fans

If I Stay – Review

If I Stay is a beautiful,  moving and picturesque drama film staring Chloé grace moretz of kickass fame.
image

The movie revolves around Chloé, her loving and caring family, a fairy-tale lover of sorts Adam and her aspiration of becoming a cello player and getting into prestigious Juilliard College.

It is an emotional drama of sorts which is highly predictable and the soundtrack just blends so nicely and gives a good feel to the movie.

The performance of the cast is ordinary and the soundtrack makes this movie a one time watch. The movie may please the audience who likes slow drama which bring down tears.

My Verdict: 3 Stars (3 / 5)

Kaththi Review – Sharpu da

Kaththi is a Tamil film staring Ilayathalapathy Vijay, Samantha which is directed by Gajini fame AR Murugadoss. It premiered this diwali to a record shattering opening in Tamilnadu.

Please find below my review of the film.
image

Opening prison break seems too exaggerated but it plays it part in climax and does give a decent intro to vijay.

Samantha may be cute but scenes involving her and the romantic songs are unnecessary insertions which hinders the pace of the film and slows down the first half of the movie.
Intermission ends with a bang.

Second half is pacy , even though coin fight and certain scenes defy logics it still entertains and that makes it enjoyable.

Bgm tharumaaru.

I don’t know why directors always want to poke their face into the screen. The scene with ARM may be a serious one but it brings only laughter.

Overall its a good entertainer and a treat for Vijay fans after a mediocre Jilla.

My Verdict: 3.5 Stars (3.5 / 5)
