RoboCop PosterWere you ever in love with this awesome one man crime-fighting law enforcer at some point of time back in the late 80s? If you were, chances are that you would want to stay away from this particular reboot.

Widely regarded as a film much ahead of its time, the original RoboCop (1987) was a satirical sci-fi actioner with surprising dosages of comedy that managed to hit all the right notes, on many levels. Though it was R rated for it’s over the top cartoonish violence, kids and adults loved it alike back then.  I mean, surely there is a reason why this ‘tin man’ figures in every list of iconic Robo-characters in the history of cinema.Continue reading “RoboCop (2014) Movie Review: Back in Black!”

10 Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies Of 2014

Most Anticipated Movies Of 2014

Without wasting further time, let me write about the most anticipated movies of the year 2014.

22_jump_street_movie_poster_1Kindly 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”
