Hindi movie into a different genre ...not successful !
Well, this is a good try to venture into a new territory , which is covered by some of the Hollywood counterparts.
Anushka's performance was good. Darshan Kumaar was amazing. Unbelievable that he played the husband of Mary Kom. In NH10, his character is in complete contrast to the his earlier role. However, he has done a fantastic job. Reminds me of the time I saw Manoj Bajpai as Bhiku Mhatre, and then the contrast irritating salesman- ish role he played in Kaun.
Now to the movie. There is really no story as such. Most of the movie Anushka is running with the guys behind her in the dead of the night. We see light right at the end of the movie. That's about it. They tried to create some tense moments, some were successful, some were nothing great. I am not sure why this movie got high ratings. I guess it must be because of the performances of Anushka and Darshan.
Overall, if you are curious, just wait till you download ...uh hmm.. sorry, I mean till you rent the DVD.
Relativity slows down time in the movie till you get bored !
OK, I get it ! It's a Nolan movie so everyone hu-ha about it. Well actually no, I do see lots of negative comments about this movie in the message board. While I went in expecting a Nolan movie , I was sadly disappointed. I got used to his style of movies which hold my attention throughout, and can even make me watch the movie a few times.
This movie is OK with its sci fi story. It does however drag many many times and goes very slow. A lot of drama, and less science fiction. A lot of talking and less adrenaline pumping scenes. The family drama just doesn't ever stop. The movie is too long.
Maybe if the movie was condensed from 169 minutes to just 90, it would have been great !
Doctor Who: Deep Breath (2014)
Capaldi is good , but his debut is nothing compared to Matt Smith's
Remember Matt Smith when he came in ? "The Eleventh Hour" !
The one liners, the funny eccentric Matt Smith, lovely Amy Pond, and of course, the showdown in the end of that episode. That showdown was excellent with the Doctor calling the alien back. Lines like "The doctor is in" , "Basically... run !" were delivered so well. The holographic images of all the doctors, through which Matt Smith walks out in the end !!!
Well, absolutely none of that cleverness was there in this episode. It was quite a simple one. Looks like Moffat ran out of ideas for a story and for showcasing a Doctor.
A simple story about a dinosaur who combusts and the Doctor searches for the serial killer. Clara was as good as always. No difference there.
One neat thing was the way they set up this Doctor's personality really well. they make it quite clear that he is not like Matt Smith and not a pseudo boyfriend to Clara.
Nevertheless, if you are as big a fan as I , you need to see it !
Update: I saw the second episode "Into the Dalek" and still not impressed.
Queen ...... King of 2014
Excellent movie ... light movie ...funny movie ... in the likes of ZNMD !
Finally Kangana got her chance. They have made her not look glamorous at all, yet she was amazing. Her acting was top notch, and the story was simple but great. They should make more movies like this.
It is about 2.5 hours long but holds your attention throughout. Though the shooting is mainly abroad, the movie doesn't go all out trying to show awesome locations etc. They concentrate on making the movie look more like everyday. There are no major dialog-baji or masala. And the movie has no deep emotional scenes. Like I said ... ZNMD :-)
( Forgot to mention ... Lisa Haydon was hot ! )
Once in a while , they make good Hindi movies like this...Also Chitrangda Singh rocks !
This is a different kind of movie which boldly deals with a topic of sexual harassment in workplace. It is done well and keeps you involved. If you are a guy and are drifting away from the plot, don't worry. Chitrangda Singh will keep your eyes glued. She is excellent as always and looks excellent. Her dressing sense is great and she looks very classy.
Arjun Rampal's acting is where it's always been, and yet he was not as annoying as I find him otherwise. He is also given some good one-liners in the movie and has done a decent job. Overall the plot is interesting. Oh, did I mention that Chitrangda Singh totally rocks !
No idea why the IMDb rating is low. I and my friends found the movie very good. I recommend you watch it.
As soon as "Flight" takes off, it crashes badly
The only reason why I'm garnered up 4 stars for this is because of the first 30 minutes leading up to the interesting flight scenes which are really gripping and due to Denzel's awesome performance. I have no doubt that Denzel totally rocks in acting, but I really prefer him in the more action roles like "Training Day" , "Safe House" , "Out of Time" etc. The movie takes off really well... until the "Flight" crashes ..literally. After that, it's total downhill. I never figured out the requirement of Kelly Reilly in this movie. The movie would be exactly the same without her. OK, I am wrong here... the movie would be BETTER without her. And of course, the way it ends is soooo disappointing. I feel they could have done much more with this movie. If you really want to see Denzel's acting and waste time, I suggest you wait for the DVD.
Brotherhood , very good !
This is a very nicely done movie, which is very engaging, fast and interesting. It keeps you watching throughout the movie. While some things are predictable , many are not. I don't understand how come the rating is just around 6. It's much better than most movies you see nowadays. It's about a bunch of kids going through the induction process to get into a frat. The movie begins with one prank, which goes way off. It gets them into trouble ,and more trouble and more trouble. The best part about this movie is the way it ends. I had absolutely no idea that this is what was going to happen ! Do watch it , it's a good movie.
Super 8 (2011)
If you are a 6 yr old, you'll probably like the movie
I have no idea why we decided to go for this movie ! There is nothing more to know about the movie than what we already know. Train Crash + Alien ... anyone who reads the plot already knows that.
There are a few thing which happen in the movie which are totally unexplained till the end. After the movie is over, you come out and start wondering ,what did this scene happen for ? Why did so and so happen ?
Anyways , the worst part and the best part of the movie are together. It's the last 5 minutes of the movie which are crappy, while it's the best part coz you are very happy that the movie has finally ended. I am still giving this a 3/10 , because I really liked the first 15 minutes which end with the train crash. After that the movie really crashes !
Shutter Island (2010)
A must-watch movie , after a loooong time
Just saw this one yesterday.
It's been a long time since I enjoyed a movie in the theaters like this one. I was awaiting Avatar, but that was not as entertaining as I thought. I think the last time I really liked a movie in the theaters was "Paranormal Activity"
This movie is an intense psychological thriller, which keeps you involved right from the start to the end. The acting of the cast was very good. Some scenes were really eerie and nicely done. The background music was very good ..kinda like "The Shining". Its done nicely , like the music is there right at the start, when these guys are on the boat approaching the Shutter island.
There are some movies , where you are so unhappy with the way they end. This one has a perfect ending.
The movie is set in 1954, where an island is an institution with a fusion of law and psychiatric treatment. Violent and insane patients reside there, where there is not only a presence of doctors, but of police force as well. There are 3 wards. One for males, one for females, and Ward C for the extremely dangerous and violent patients. Two US marshals (DiCaprio and Ruffalo) are hired to investigate the disappearance of a patient from ward C. Slowly they uncover a conspiracy. I obviously can't tell you more about the movie without revealing too much.
This is a must-watch movie, not to be missed !
The Other Man (2008)
Absolutely nothing in this movie !
I think I have rarely seen worse movies than this one. The movie just doesn't add up. It keeps your interest for the first 30 minutes I think, then you start wondering what is happening. What I really really really can't understand is, how such a good cast decided to be in this slow dragging, boring , lousy end , kind of movie !
It's just a simple story of a cheating wife. Actually the story starts off with Liam Neeson finding out that his wife is cheating on him. He finds out who it is, befriends him, and the movie ends. I am not joking. There is absolutely nothing else in the movie. If there is , someone please tell me what I missed.
Anyways believe me, you don't want to see this one.
