Moderately Satisfying
18 January 2019
Warning: Spoilers
There is nothing big about this film except maybe the body type of the main character. It is a film about desperate persons try to get back the control of his life.

The script did not have any exceptional thing in it but you kind of like the story. As the casting was alright and the narration style was somewhat funny, one can easily enjoy the film. Gene Pietragallo (Tony Duran) did a good job portraying that his life is in the dumps.

It is an average film but one can watch it for light entertainment.

Coin Flip
15 December 2018
This is a story of reform, a tale of changing courses of the destiny. Drug ruins life, wrecks family, destroys future but sheer will power and concrete determination can help to redeem one's life.

Jerzy Gorski (Jakub Gierszal) is an addict. He introduces drugs to his rebellious girlfriend, which eventually ruins her life. But when Jerzy was denied access to her daughter he starts to reconsider his life choices. He finds his passion in triathlon and uses that to return into normal life.

In one hand the story is very uplifting and on the other it is equally heartbreaking. The film also portraits the fact that not everyone is rescued from the evil grasp of addiction. Rehabilitation is a very arduous process which can derail within a split second. Jerzy's struggle was beautifully showed in the screen. And the performance of Jakub Gierszal was quite commendable.

This is a good film to watch. It reminds us to be more resilient and supportive towards the addicted persons so the can flip their life back to normal.

Recommended.

Rating Sins
15 December 2018
When this review was being written the rating was 8.1., which is downright ridiculous. The rating was definitely artificially boosted by the people who were involved in the making of this film.

The rating this movie now has, has no relation to the film. The story was dull, monotonous and full of lame stereotype remarks. The acting was below average, characters couldn't put any good performance because of their lack of skills and for the low grade script which was riddled with terrible cliches.

It would be unwise to waste time by watching this film. There are lot of ways to waste time, but unquestionably this movie is not one of them. NOT RECOMMENDED,

Pointless Stuff
21 October 2018
Watching this movie is not worth anyone's time. It doesn't even have the quality of a decent TV movie.

The script was so typical, it had nothing that could stand out. The story-line was was quite monotonous and equally predictable. There was no urge like 'what might happen next' at all. The performances of the main characters were unable to uplift the movie's standard. Often weak scripts can turned into an enjoyable film by a skilled performer. Sadly that wasn't the case for this film. The actors and actress were below mediocre, it seemed like bunch middle aged suburban people decided to make a film who has never acted ever in their life.

No one should spend their precious time watching this film. Not Recommended.

Gifted (2014)

Fairly Average
17 August 2018
Min-soo (Beom-soo Jeon) was just a typical guy who was struggling through life until he taps into his evil side.

This film has an usual story line where the main character is facing financial troubles. So he started to do illegal things to augment his income but eventually started to like his life of crime. So there is nothing new in the script grab the attention of the audience. Casting was not exceptional either. The average performance of the lead characters made the scenes somewhat monotonous.

Not recommended. It is certainly not a must watch film but it would be a good choice to fill up a lazy afternoon.

Overrated
8 August 2018
This film does not deserve this high rating.

The story was a complete of cliche, as well as it was quite pointless. Main characters took some brash decisions out of nowhere just to make the story complicated. Then the story went crazy from there. If the story was not forced to match with the past story line then it could have been a enjoyable film but abrupt illogical turns of events actually wasted the real potential of the film.

And the camera crew was trying to make the important scenes more interesting by shaking the frames but they over did that. As a result for those vital scenes camerawork was kind of sloppy and unappealing to the eye.

Bottom line is that, It was an average movie. But watching this film will not be a waste of time.

Tomb Raider (2018)

Tomb Ruiner
12 June 2018
Tomb Raider was an adventurous character full of action, confidence and more importantly smartness. This film quite successfully ruins these aspects of Tomb Raider.

Nowadays these kind of movies has only one goal which is to prepare the plot for the sequel. And to do so they ruin the story with flawed logic and unnecessary complications. As a bonus - this story has no solid backgrounds for its characters, they just pop up in places and do things like: fall in love and fight; it is just too painful to watch. Not to mention the absurd action scenes where Tomb fights with bow and arrow against automatic guns, as well as the scenes where good guys can easily overpower bad guys and vice versa but they did not do it just for the sake of the movie.

Really disappointed. Not Recommended.

What Separates It
3 June 2018
Watching this film feels like as if something was missing. It had all the potential of an adult film, minus the sex.

This film has a story which is full of cliches. Here a good girl full of potential fell in love with a bad boy. And that is it, there is nothing more to the story.

The acting was so bad that it felt like watching an adult film but without the good bits. The camera work was quite sloppy, locations selection was terrible and the supporting characters was a complete joke.

Watching this film will be a huge mistake.

Warning: Spoilers
This film is so nonsensical that even children will find that foolish.

The story of the movie made no sense what so ever. The writer wrote up characters and events without any backstory whatsoever. It had a fantasy part where human transforms into some other animals. And the reason for the transformation was absolutely absurd.

The script was mixed up with so many things that it didn't even add up sometimes. There was a little girl who seeks more attention from her mother but her mother was unable to do that. There was a teacher who had a close relation with that girl and found alone with her in inappropriate places and situations. But apparently it doesn't seem to bother anyone. This is what bothered me a lot about the film. So I don't recommend anyone to take their child to watch this horrible film.

You Will Never Enjoy Here
11 May 2018
Not a good movie to watch and definitely doesn't deserve the high rating it has now in IMDb. This movie lacks depth in the story. There are not much contents in the story so it became pretty boring after a while. Although the film had mystery, thriller genre specified in IMDb but there was no such elements in the story. Despite Joaquin Phoenix's okay performance the film was a huge letdown just because of the weak script.

Fail
1 May 2018
Avoiding this film will be a very smart choice.

The story of the film was quite amiss. It has not much connection with the scenes which made the film out of sequence sometimes. And the acting part was worst than that. Everybody did a incredibly terrible acting job with an exception of Marielle de Rocca-Serra. She tried to deliver quality reactions but her co-actors were no help. It was a complete eyesore to see them acting.

NOT RECOMMENDED.

The Giant (2017)
5/10
Giant Couldn't Triumph
28 April 2018
All in all the movie was average movie. This film could have use some more human emotions, and then the audience could feel a strong connection with giant.

The script was also average. With some little more emotional connections with different characters could made the script a whole lot better. Throughout the film it seemed that the characters are slightly detached from each other, which made the film a bit less enjoyable. Performance of the characters was a bit of stale; there was no extraordinary performance.

As far as the story goes, one can try the film in a slow evening when there is nothing to do.

Student No. 1 (2001)

Senseless Story
28 March 2018
The center plot of the story is downright ridiculous. In the R.N.R. College there is a senior who doesn't let anyone to study. He has a group of followers who make sure that no students can go near any books. Professors are also afraid of them, that is why they don't take any classes. This story doesn't make any sense at all. If they are not studying here then why anyone would take admission to this college?

Other than the flawed storyline, the acting was pretty average. The actors and actresses didn't put that much efforts on their work. There was hardly any good humor in the story. The story could have been little better with the help of some light comedy.

If you don't watch this film you will not miss anything.

Extraordinary Lame
13 February 2018
Everything about this film is not only but also lame. Watching this film will be a complete waste of time.

The story is so weak that one can easily predict every next scene. The script was written with not much care and no characters had any strong role throughout the film. It had no thrill, no twist or any interesting aspect which could grab the viewers attention. There was no real comedy in the script either. But the acting of all the casts was a complete joke. Seeing their terrible performance made the movie thousand times worse.

Along with bad acting there was clumsy action scenes. Most of the action scenes looked pretty funny rather than exciting. Even the CGI and the technology they showed in the film were simply hilarious.

If one really wants to know how bad a movie can be then s/she can watch it.

Weak Story
2 February 2018
This film has very weak story line, which is bound to bore the audience. So they tried to overcompensate it by putting a lot sexual attentions in it. But that could not do any good for the movie, as they failed to depict those attentions in a classy way.

The acting skill of all the characters made a huge dent on the film. As the acting of the main characters was quite clumsy, it was hard to endure it throughout the film. It seemed that they are struggling to act and deliver the apt emotion in the scenes.

Bad Casting
2 February 2018
Even for 70's standard this film was quite lame. Everything about this film felt pretty dull and boring.

The most ridiculous thing about the film is the casting. There are bunch of old timers in this so called action based film, which made the action sequences a bit funny rather than exciting. And their acting performance in the film was below average also. The expressions in their face and the dialogue delivery seemed very amateur.

The script was a typical one, it had no strong or moving character which audience could admire. It neither had any gripping story nor have any dramatic climax.

Not recommended.

Terrible Film
1 February 2018
This is really a terrible film.

The script was too weak and the plot has no strong base at all. There was no suspense or twist in the story. Moreover it was full of unnecessary characters who actually has nothing to do with story. The characters had no definite purpose or consistency of any sort. Some of the characters were doing things which no sense a all,

The acting was hilarious, and most of the action scenes was quite lame and totally unprofessional. Even if one can endure the acting of the main characters but the acting of the side characters was a real eye sore.

Lacks Effort
22 October 2017
Though the movie had so much potential but the plot holes in the story, halfhearted screenplay, weak performance from the actors and actresses made it a failure.

As it is a crime based action film with a hint of comedy it required some versatile characters who can do both action and comedy but alas that was not the case. Which robbed the laughs of most of the good puns and made them a little stale.

This could have been a fun and interesting movie but lack of efforts to sort out the plot holes and the average performance from the cast let the movie down.

Senseless Story
30 September 2017
Marvel did it again; spent a loads of money on CGI and brought in lots of unnecessary characters for no good reason to make a blockbuster and completely ignore the script in the process.

The story is full of plot holes. It was written very poorly and lacks basic logic. The film does not make any sense altogether. But I do have to give credit to the dialogues of Drax (Dave Bautista); they were extremely funny. Those are the only things I find entertaining in the entire film.

Despite high ratings and metascore this film is a below average film with a crappy script.

Overcooked
28 September 2017
It is supposed to be a film about Lenny McLean and his struggles in his life. But Josh Helman just ruin the character by terrible acting and awful impersonation.

Also the story was not well written, it didn't had any depth at all. The characters were weakly displayed, none of the characters had proper build up to give them a strong base.

It will be terrible mistake on your part if you go and watch the film because regardless of who you are it doesn't worth your time.

Typical Telugu Film
23 September 2017
This film was supposed to be a thriller film where logic should have play a important part in the story. But it was a typical Telugu film where script is weak in the matter of logic of the real world.

This is a revenge story of a loving son. He wants to take revenge on the former business partner of his father.

Junior N.T.R. did a good job in the film and Rakul Preet Singh looked very cute in the film. But there efforts couldn't make the film entertaining as the script lacked the touch reality.

It is a below average film.

Really Don't Get It
23 September 2017
I really do not get these Indiana Jones movies at all. These are all average adventure films but evidently somehow in IMDb they got the best ratings.

Like other Indiana Jones films this one also has a weak script which is full of plot holes. There was hardly any logic in the story. Although acting was decent but without a strong story the film was not that enjoyable.

The action scenes are the most weird of all. They tried to add comedy in these scenes which made them rather childish. They should have these scenes intense and serious instead.

Overall it is an average film and good way to spend your spare time.

Waste In Everyway
9 September 2017
Simply there is nothing good about this entire film that I can share.

The casting was okay but script ruin it for everybody. The story had no logic or depth at all. This is a story about a sham marriage to get citizenship when some unwanted guest arrives. These unwanted guests took over the life of the hero and heroine who hardly even know each other. Most of the times characters were consistent but often they go out of characters and do things which make no sense whatsoever. And comedy elements of the story was mainly cheap comedies which were rather annoying than entertaining.

Overall, watching this film will be a complete waste of your time and money.

Weak Story, No Mystery
8 September 2017
Maybe 60 long years back this film was a masterpiece. But I watched it in 2017, I frankly did not find anything extraordinary. Even for the styles of 1950s, this film does not seemed as a movie of great content to me.

The main reason the movie was mediocre is the story. The story was about mystery but they hyped it as it was a great mystery which baffled the characters of the film. But actually the mystery was stale and unappealing. In every version of the story the final outcome stays the same and there was not much variation between stories.

In my opinion it was an average film, does not deserve this high ratings. If you did not watched it yet then do not feel obligated to watch it.

Complete Joke
8 September 2017
If this is what passes as comedy theses days then I have to avoid this genre. Actually there was no comedy but the entire film was a complete joke.

I do not have any problems about bad movies those movies have bad ratings and I do not watch them. But when a film gets almost 6/10 ratings while even 1/10 feels quite generous, I get irritated. Which is what I felt when I was watching this film.

Among all the things story was the absolute worst, without any real plot. As well as the acting was not very convincing, the characters in the film were not interesting either.

NOT RECOMMENDED.
