Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Movie Review: Visual Extravaganza? Yes, Anything Else? No

Michael Bay’s films have mostly generated a divided opinion of sorts, for some his films just do not make any sense irrespective of the box office outcome. While for many others he is one terrific entertainer who knows how to deliver an enjoyable summer blockbuster with great consistency. The Transformer series is mostly what we think of these days whenever his name springs up, after all he’s done 5 films in the franchise so far over the last 10 years, with just 2 other films in this period- Pain & Gain (2013) and 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi (2014), both of them being modest ventures be it in terms of their budget or their box office outcome. While all 4 previous films in the franchise have gone on to make a lot of money, it’s also a fact that the films are also being panned a lot.Continue reading “Transformers: The Last Knight (2017) Movie Review: Visual Extravaganza?

Exodus:Gods And Kings (2014) Movie Review: Irreverent Gods And Awful Kings

Language: English | Running Time: 150 Minutes | Director: Ridley Scott

Our hero, Moses(Christian Bale) is told by a petulant, child God that he is one of the people who doesn’t agree with everything He has to say and then asks him to drop the hammer he’s holding if he disagrees with the need for laws for the people he has liberated. Moses continues chalking away stone and the child God approves. With any other filmmaker, I wouldn’t have been as lost as I was after watching this exchange. But this is Ridley Scott‘s “Exodus: Gods and Kings” and so I am perplexed that the exchange was so ordinary, so without any action to assuage importance.
