I am late by a week for this post; this review should have been posted on last Friday. Anyways I watched Pirates of the Caribbean – On stranger Tides last Sunday and guess long absence from writing movie reviews is the reason for delay. The reason of absence is not that I am not watching movies, I am every weekend, weekday; anytime when I get time and the frequency is at its peak. I am beating my record of extended summer vacations of 2003 (the one after 10th class exams, during these three months only thing which I did in scorching heat was watch movies at home).

Just thought you would like to know.
Edge of Darkness . . .
After almost a decade, Mel Gibson returns to the big screen with Edge of Darkness. When someone of Gibson’s stature returns then surely you can’t miss it [like it was hard to miss Schumacher’s return to F-1]. But just like Schumacher’s dismissal performance, Edge of Darkness too is dull. That’s it, I said it in one line, and now you may read on if you are a big fan of the ‘Braveheart’ ‘Patriot’. Continue reading “Edge of Darkness . . .”
The A Team . . .
There is a golden rule I follow whenever I go to watch an action movie; I leave my brain back home and trust me the results are spectacular. I don’t crib this is impossible and this more impossible. I don’t suffer from brain damage due to all the blowing and shooting. And most importantly I don’t need any brain to figure out the story or the characters. Now if you can do this, then you should definitely go and watch ‘The A- Team’ and you will come out of the movie theatre a happy man. Continue reading “The A Team . . .”
While watching Robin Hood, till the interval I was wondering this is not the Robin Hood story I know about. Well Ridley Scott said that this movie will be an altogether different take on the story of Robin Hood and yes it is, just that it is not what exactly I plan to see. Continue reading “Robin Hood!!!”
Shutter Island . . .
Nothing amuses me more than psychological suspense thrillers with a pinch of horror in it, and when the making team comprises of Scorsese and DiCaprio then you can’t miss this ride and hence I didn’t. It was a long wait for Indian viewers before they actually released it; I had started to lose hope of it ever getting released in India. Continue reading “Shutter Island . . .”
Prince Of Persia Sands of Time
I was around 10 years old when I first played Prince of Persia first on the black and white CRT monitors. That was the first real game which I played on computer and I had no idea that it is the beginning of a lifetime affair. Today as I write this post, I am still playing Prince of Persia, the difference is now the monitors are LCD, the graphics 3D and the story has reached to Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands. For those of you who don’t know, Prince of Persia Sands of Time is the movie based on a game of the same name, and in the gaming series there are three more, Forgotten Sands being the latest. So when I came to know about POP movie being made I know I have to watch it. Continue reading “Prince Of Persia Sands of Time”
Iron Man 2
The wait for Iron Man’s sequel begun the day I watched the first movie, because I liked the movie and the sequel will be bigger and louder if not better. Although the sequel is neither louder nor bigger, am not sure about the better part, but it certainly is entertaining. Continue reading “Iron Man 2”
Am not a great reader and of all the few novels I have read till date there has been one series which got me hooked the Sherlock Holmes. The simple explanations based upon good observation and logical analysis is indeed catchy and hence I was eagerly waiting for the movie. Continue reading “Sherlock Holmes”
After 2012 if any movie was powerfull enough to drag me to a theatre then it had to be Avatar. Thanks to the college authorities for giving us first half of Friday completely free, we went to watch the movie [rare case of not missing lectures to do so] and sat there for the 150 minutes of runtime. Continue reading “Avatar”
Alright it is after a long time I am writing a movie review. Not because I was absent from the usual movie watching business, but my exams have kept me a little busy this time. This reminds me, I guess this is probably the last post till 25th of this month [which am eagerly waiting, my exams end the same day]. Anyways getting back to the task at hand; movie review! For some time my friend was bugging me with the release date of 2012; not because it was highly anticipated but it was falling right before my exams; so I had to watch it. Its not that I didn’t want to but I might have given it a miss. To talk about the movie in one straight line, it is like any other disaster movie just on larger scale. You get to see where they spent 200 million dollars. Continue reading “2012”
Almost all of us at some point in our life have been bitten by the GI Joe bug. For some it was the action figures, for others the cartoon or for someone like me it was the novel cum Game Books gifted by a cousin. Before that I had watched a few cartoons but didn’t found them very scintillating. So I went to watch the movie without any nostalgic baggage and an open mind, greedy for some good action which I undoubtedly got. Continue reading “GI Joe”
I generally don’t like the movie which the critics approve of; and critics have approved Public Enemies. With a cast of Bale [he has become my favourite] and Depp, set in the great depression era, story of a bank robber; the expectations were ought to be high and most of them have been met. But the ones which are not left me a lot disappointed. Continue reading “Public Enemies”
Red Cliff is a Chinese epic war movie; this is all I know about it. My knowledge of rocket science is much better when compared to Chinese movies or actors. Except for Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Bruce Lee, all look alike to me [no offence] so don’t expect any mind blowing, critic review about the story or the characters. Continue reading “Red Cliff”
Since I heard about ‘The Hangover’ I wanted to watch it; but as luck would have it I finally got a chance this Friday. Going by the kind of business the movie is doing [the theatre was full even in the third week in India and that too on Friday, with many other releases] am sure most of you must have seen it and if you are still waiting, then its high time now. Continue reading “The Hangover”
Transformers- Revenge of the Fallen
We all know about Hollywood’s obsession with big action movies, elaborate special effects with some sci-fi plot thrown in and the huge number of such flicks it produces on the subject. Adding to this list is ‘Transfomers-Revenge of the Fallen’! Continue reading “Transformers- Revenge of the Fallen”
