Pete’s Dragon- Movie Review

Roochster

Pete’s Dragon is a sweet, light and happy film that will remind you of classics such as ‘E.T.’ and ‘The Jungle Book’; basically, nothing like you’ve never seen before.

Despicable Me 2- Movie Review

Roochster

I remember how much I loved watching Despicable Me so part 2 with more emphasis given to Gru’s love story, more adventure and a bigger part for the minions made it fun to watch.

Rating- 3.5/5

Ice Age 4- Movie Review

Roochster

I am a huge fan of the Ice Age movies and it goes without saying that I was really looking forward to watch the fourth movie of the epic animated series.

So basically, Scrat, the squirrel is responsible for a continental drift because of which our favourite characters- Sid, Manny and Diego find themselves having an adventurous journey across the ocean on an iceberg slab (like a ship) and meeting some very interesting creatures on their way.

Top class animation as always, some really funny moments but  some of the new characters weren’t as lovable or endearing as the ones in the previous movies. Yes, Sid’s granny was fun to watch and so was Manny’s daughter ‘Peaches’ but otherwise, the pirates gave the movie a dark shade which I didn’t like too much.

So, Ice Age 4, Continental Drift sort of drifted a bit how awesome its been so far. This one was definitely a step lower when compared to the other ones and I think it’ll be safe to say that you can watch it at home instead of going to a theatre.

Superb animation, characters and message but weak screenplay because of which it gets slightly slow and boring in a few parts.

The Smurfs- Movie Review

Roochster

Oh I’ve waited so long, as have so many others to watch the cute little Smurfs on big screen. Was it worth the wait? Read on!

So basically these smurfs live in an enchanted forest in little mushroom homes. They love their lives and are named according to their individual personality. There is an evil wizard who is after the smurfs for a reason unknown. On the Blue Moon day, the smurfs, by mistake travel into New York city and meet Patrick and his wife who are expecting a child. The evil wizard also follows them (cause he’s after them for a reason unknown). Then there are apparently some adventures and funny moments and then a sweet message at the end.

I was really looking forward to watching Smurfs since the time I saw the movie poster. I thought it’d be cute and funny and the smurfs would be lovable. But it’s quite the opposite. I, to be honest could skip showing this movie to my kids. There’s nothing great about it. The smurfs don’t make you go “Awwwww” or basically feel any emotions towards them which is very important for an animated movie like this. I’m so glad I didn’t watch it in 3d. I don’t think I missed anything! The animation wasn’t ‘wow’ either.

Also, I expected a lot more from Neil Patrick Harris… he just didn’t “suit” the character! 😉

The Smurfs didn’t smurf me enough and so I think you can smurf it! Got it?

Cars 2- Movie Review

Roochster

So this one’s yet another sequel that’s released this year besides Kung Fu Panda, Pirates, etc. What did I think of Cars 2? Read further.

Mater (Larry the cable guy) is McQueen’s (Owen Wilson) best friend but is taken for granted when certain things about his behavior embarrass McQueen. Things turn around when Mater is caught in a dangerous spy mission and has to prove himself as a person and a friend.

Before they started with the movie, there was a 10 minute Toy Story toon which was very sweet and I wished that went on but anyway, once Cars 2 started, I tried to get into that mode. The movie I felt could have been more gripping and fast paced. Being a Disney Pixar film, I felt it could have been way better but it wasn’t bad either. The animation is superb as expected. I really liked Mater as a character and thought he was very lovable!

Overall, Cars 2 is a decent movie to watch. Guys will definitely like it more than girls but that’s no reason for girls not to watch it at all.

Kung Fu Panda 2- Movie Review

Roochster

I remember watching Kung Fu Panda at home many months after its release because I thought it’d be a stupid action animation movie which might pakao me. But I had really liked it and so part 2 was releasing how could I miss it; especially with all the 3d effects? Anyway, so here’s what I thought of Kung Fu Panda 2!

Po, the Dragon Warrior panda is living peacefully with his friends-Tigress, Mantis, Viper, Monkey, Crane father- a goose when he finds out that Shen, an evil peacock plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. In order to defeat him, Po must find his inner strength by finding out about his past and making peace with himself. It’s a journey of adventure, fun and kung fu!

Animated movies are always fun to watch and more so if the movie has awesome characters. In Kung Fu Panda, not only are the characters lovable and fun to watch but even the animation with 3D is done brilliantly! Jack Black’s voice is superb for Po the panda and the way he delivers the dialogues makes the scene ten times funnier! His comic timing is just brilliant! I could hear kids laughing out loud in so many scenes! There’s this one scene in particular where Po is up on a roof and he’s saying something with all the attitude and confidence but he’s so up high that Shen the peacock can’t hear him and he simply says, “What?” Hahaha that was just class!

So I suggest you watch Kung Fu Panda as soon as possible! If you have kids, make sure you take them along!

Rating– 4/5
