Crop And Save
I watched this because of the 6 rating on imdb and that is about my benchmark in picking a movie. This movie is not without its moments in acting and it gave me a feeling that its going somewhere. However, the ending left much to be desired and I don't know what to make of it. Its one of those movies where u draw parallels to society and infer a meaning or draw a metaphor. However, I don't know what it is alluding to or that its just a straight forward alien attack scenario or abduction. In the end, I was ok with it though I wish there was more of something.
Shingeki no kyojin (2013)
Unpredictable and thrilling
Excellent character development and it makes you wait to unravel the mystery behind the titans which some can find weary. But patience really pays off. I hadn't watch season 2 and season 3, hence I binge watched it and season 3 especially was super exciting. Can't wait for season 4. I just wish it was a weekly thing like some of the other anime.
Dark Moon Rising (2015)
What in the world???
I literally watched just 5 minutes of this pile of steaming garbage. I couldn't believe why the ratings were so high and I couldn't bear it for more than five minutes. I thought maybe I was one of the few out there who couldn't really get it so I flitted through the rest of the movie and checked out bits and pieces to see if there were any improvements coming along and there seemed to be none. After checking out some of the comments and these new reviews, I get it that the wool had been pulled over my eyes. Fantastico scamming if I do say so myself. But I can't forgive the fact that the film makers gave me hope for something special. I expected so much more and a good movie but you left my hopes dashed. Some of the dialogues I heard when I flitted through certain scenes were just laughable.. "you may be a werewolf but you are a b**ch??". I mean really?? And what is with the thinking out loud sequences??
Some of the film makers are out in full force asking people to make a movie and then hate on what they do.. For your information, when you release something that people pay to watch, you are entitled to their opinion. Even if people did not pay and torrented it/borrowed it from somewhere, people are wasting their time on this and time is a resource you will never get back. If you can't take criticism of how your work truly is, they don't bother releasing it, keep it for private viewing and torture your guests. I would give it 2 for the effort they put in to perpetrate the scam and I think that the lead was quite pretty..but then again, 1 will do.
Poker Night (2014)
A fun ride
This film deserves more publicity than it is getting.. An impressive cast and a pretty good thriller in its own right.. The different stories that each cop puts forward on poker night are in itself pretty good. Each story is different in their own way and its really depicts how a legit detective team would handle the same case. The negatives that I have are really slight.. Maybe the plot could have been a bit more taut and focused on the killer a bit more. The acting is well handled.. I enjoyed the ending and I wish the team behind this all the best in their next venture. I went in without any expectations but the rating on IMDb (which I think it deserves at least a seven) and I liked it. If you are into thrillers, give it a try.
The usual Tamil action fare.
Its the typical Tamil action entertainer.. Hero who wants to help people out and who loves his mother from the bottom of his heart.. You also have your staple contract killer thug who needs to be killed in the end.. Why I gave it a score of 7 is because I quite enjoyed it to be honest. Vishal has put his heart and soul into the movie seeing as he is also the producer.
Shruthi looks pretty and her usual dare bare self.. There is no need for item numbers in movies where she is the lead.. She has no qualms about doing glamorous and she is hot to boot. There is an unnecessary song with Andreah in it which is best forgotten. I enjoyed a few of the comedy scenes as well. There is absolutely nothing new in the picture to be honest but it is one of those movies where the usual has been done in a better manner. Satyaraj makes an appearance as a bad-ass cop and he fills scenes where he is present with his usual charisma. I believe that the movie performed well at the box office so way to go Vishal. Verdict: Vishal fans will love it but it is watchable for the others.
Not bad, not great
I will say that Jessabelle tried to scare but was unsuccessful.. Other than a few jumps from sudden sounds and camera switches.. there is nothing that the movie really has to offer. The plot is interesting.. there is also a whole explanation about everything towards the end tying up loose ends.. The climax is a bit laughable and has been made just for the sake of it.. Supposed "ghost" that needed help turning on you?? Yeah anyway, the acting by the lead is decent. Obviously, in a horror flick there are no real opportunities for sublime acting but she was convincing. Nobody else has a significant part to play in the plot. I wouldn't call her eye candy but out tastes may differ. The cinematography is decent and the BGM fails to thrill.. overall, watchable..
Earth to Echo (2014)
Found footage mishmash..
Firstly, I am not American, so I don't mind saying that I haven't seen E.T. I know the whole story though and from reading a couple of the reviews and seeing the poster of this movie, it is quite evident as to where the makers came up with the premise of this. First off, the person who came up with the cam footage idea, should be shot. Absolutely hate found footage/ shaky cam / wall cam nonsense. Hated it from the first movie I ever saw using the idea. I enjoy horror movies now and then but 50% of that is of the found footage variety effectively cutting down the number of movies I would like to watch. I did not watch the trailer of this movie, so imagine my surprise when the movie started. Did not expect adventure movies to be based around amateur footage idea. To me, it is just an excuse to cut down on costs. The acting is not spectacular but decent for kids. I liked the alien and last, even though a copy, I liked the premise which made me give the movie 4 stars but never again please..
The Saratov Approach (2013)
Your quick guide to Christianity
Alright I watched the whole thing but not from love for the movie or a curiosity to know the climax (which is very predictable) but just because I liked the music score and I found the acting decent. Also because I had some time to kill.
The storyline is of two Christian missionaries being kidnapped for ransom and the ordeal they have to go through. Sounds like a Good tale right? NO, the problems come from them repeatedly giving their thoughts on Christianity and Jesus almost every time they talk (other than the bit where they talk about the NBA). Towards the end, the preaching started to grate on my nerves and also the other scenes where their families were being shown.
In short, if you are Christian and believe that the Christ is your savior and died for your sins, then go ahead and watch it. Others, just stay away. The 4 in my rating is for the music score and I quite liked the Russians.
Cute little film that will lift you up.
For a movie that blends CGI with real world shots, this is a very well done venture. The landscape is very beautiful, the music is delightful and there is a serene quality to the movie that would sooth your senses in the long run. As another reviewer mentioned, there was no real point to putting up racing car sounds to flying bugs but this is brief. There is no dialogue at all so its just sit back and follow the way these bugs communicate though whistles and chirps. Its a nice tale of friendship and I have to commend the director for this innovative venture. The final war scene between the red and the black ants is hilarious so I would highly recommend watching till the end.
Frankenstein's Army (2013)
innovative monsters and thats it..
first up, i hate the found footage kind of movies with the shaky camera darting around. Hated the blair witch project and I hate the paranormal activity series. That being said, I liked the close ups of some of the monsters that the movie occasionally throws up when the monsters attacked the camera guy. It doesn't tease and make you wait until the end to see something. Like many reviews, loved the ideas of the director for monsters.. each of them were innovative and different from the others.. sickle man, propeller man, drill man (names I gave them).. which is the only reason I gave this movie a 4.. the acting is non existent, sets are cheap, quite a bit of gore is present (not quite a fan of gore).. no particular story to talk about.. overall.. watch it if you have an interest in seeing some home designed monsters..
The Last Exorcism Part II (2013)
This demon should have stayed away
So, the exorcism is back with a vengeance. The producer earned such a lot of dough from the first movie that he thought he would try and repeat his success with a second part. However, this time around the movie is so filled with cheesy horror clichés that it felt like the exorcism was being performed on me. The ending is equally bizarre where the girl who was runningfrom the evil forces all throughout the movie from fear of destroying herself and the world suddenly accepts him. I thought she would be happy to die. There are no real scares and this time you are served with bland rubbish. Stay away or go for the "The Conjuring" or rewatch "Insidious".
Blaze You Out (2013)
U r in for a dumb ride
Alright, so my friend brought this movie over and I thought, a sister fighting to save her younger sister against the heroin mafia. Hell, sounds good. But I never knew that "fighting" against the mafia meant going around to different people and asking them if they have seen her sister. So in short, there is this gangster named Whitey who goes around killing people who apparently took some money that belonged to him and his mother.
He kills a guy who was with the sister of the heroine, the sister goes into hiding, blah blah blah, the guy goes around asking people if anyone has seen her. The heroine goes around asking people if anyone has seen her sister. That's it.
Apparently the underworld consists of one guy and his mom according to this movie. Spanish is spoken liberally throughout the movie so if you have no idea about the language or have no subtitles, don't bother. Why this movie is categorized under action is beyond me..
My childhood friend dragged me to the theatres to watch this movie and i went along with it even though my feelings were against it. I was aware of Vijay delivering a long list of rubbish with his last few movies and at the end of this movie i definitely felt like sitting through a torture session.
In short this flick is all about a guy living in a slum supposedly having super intelligience and super strength. As always the question that begs to be answered is why didn't he get a better job and help his villagers out (being his lifelong aim) if he was that good (he is a fisherman in the movie). The baddie is your everyday stereotypical villain dealing in drugs and smuggled goods. So what do u expect at the end of the movie. One guess and that sums up this pile of filth.
Vijay, do read the script before accepting movies coz this one was written by a retard and the producer was definitely languishing in some mental asylum when the script reached him. I see no other plausible solution as to how anyone agreed to spent money on this.
This flick is recommended to nobody and seeing that this was a major disaster at the box office i believe that this feeling is mutual.
