Tales of survival are something that have always appealed to me, perhaps from the time I read Daniel Defoe’s classic novel, Robinson Crusoe way back in school. I’m sure I have the company of several like-minded people, no wonder that time and again we have had films based on survival being made, quite a few of them succeeding as well. Be it Cast Away, Life of Pi, Gravity, 127 Hours and many other such films, I always wonder what is it about these films that appeals to us so much. Is it the element of thrill, is it because of one or more person’s fight against odds for basic survival or is it an underlying fear of what if something like this was to happen to us? Most likely it’s a combination of all these and hence books and movies on survival will continue getting made, the better ones getting appreciated as well. One of the more anticipated Hollywood biggies of this year, Ridley Scott’s The Martian is one such film and it finally opened in theatres Worldwide a few days ago.Continue reading “The Martian (2015) Movie Review: Ridley Scott Returns to Form with an Engaging Survival Tale”

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. Ridley Scott’s “Kingdom Of Heaven” is a movie which dealt with religion and the Crusades in particular. It had an ordinary hero with an extraordinary tale but every scene in the movie had an importance not just in words but the way a scene filled the screen. Exodus : Gods and Kings has further convinced me that Ridley Scott’s masterpiece Kingdom Of Heaven is one rare movie.Continue reading “Exodus:Gods And Kings (2014) Movie Review: Irreverent Gods And Awful Kings”
Most Anticipated Movies Of 2014
Without wasting further time, let me write about the most anticipated movies of the year 2014.
Kindly note that this list is purely compiled on the basis of my personal choices and preferences.
10. 22 Jump Street : Co-Written by the multi-talented actor/writer Jonah ”Superbad, MoneyBall” Hill he teams up once again with Channing ”G.I Joe”Tatum in 22 Jump Street. 22 Jump Street is a story of 2 undercover cops who are so good at being incapable that in the 1st film they had to let go of a criminal because they couldn’t read him his rights. The film which is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) is a sequel to the hilarious 21 Jump Street. This time they are going undercover in a local college, so expect some more funny one liners and insane gags.
9. A Million Ways to Die in the West : Written & directed by an absolute mental Seth”Family Guy, Ted” MacFarlene, this film promises to push the limits of comedy which range from gross to the most creative gags. See the fight scene between Mark Wahlberg and Ted in the movie Ted to know what am talking about. A Million Ways To Die In The West tells the story of a cowardly farmer who seeks the help of a gunslinger’s wife to win back the woman who left him. It sounds serious but trust me it’s going to be madness and knowing Seth’s work it maybe something out of the box.Continue reading “10 Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies Of 2014”

One of the biggest paradoxes we face in life is – when it comes to doing the right thing do we break the law or do we believe that the law is right and no matter what the case, the law should always prevail. This is a paradox that separates the idealists from the realists. Jane/Sarah (Brit Marling) faces such a paradox in The East.Continue reading “The East (2013): Cult Espionage”
