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.

Rating- 3/5

Captain America Civil War- Movie Review

Roochster

captain-america-civil-war-poster
OK let me be honest with you. I am not an Avengers fan. Also, I haven’t seen any Captain America movie so this was a first. I was invited to go for the special preview at PVR Phoenix and I was super excited! Sadly no plus ones allowed and I think Karan was quite jealous cause then he said, ‘Its ok Captain America is anyway boring’ to which I said, “you’re just like the fox who said the grapes our sour cause we couldn’t reach them” 😛 😛 Anyway, here’s what I thought of it.

Plot in short– While the Avengers are doing their best to save people and the world, sometimes, unintentionally it leads to collateral damage. This makes the government doubt the accountability of the superheroes. While Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes must be given full freedom to be themselves and continue helping people while Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) thinks it’s best to let the government take a call on how to protect the country. Standing strong against each other, the Avengers are forced to take sides resulting in a Civil War.

IMG_20160429_180449722The Good-Even though this is supposed to be a ‘Captain America’ film, Ironman Robert Downey Jr. kind of owns it. Some other noteworthy performances come from Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland, Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Mackie and Paul Rudd. The action sequences were well choreographed, especially the ones that involved Spiderman. In fact, I think I loved all the parts that had Spiderman. The computer graphics are great in parts and alright in some.

The Not-so-good– I must admit, Avengers is so not my thing and Captain America who I wanted to watch was really not the most important part of the film. Ironman got more screen time and had better screen presence too. I also have to say that I was quite bored in many parts. There is drama, humour, action, yes but the film is not action packed and fast paced as I had imagined and wished it to be. It was a bit of a drag.

IMG_20160429_173356655_HDRVerdict– Captain America/ Avengers is probably not my thing and if you’re a crazy superhero fan, you’re definitely giving me gaalis right now.  It was just a bit better than ok.

Tron Legacy- Movie Review

Roochster

I didn’t wanna watch this movie at all…but…ab dekh liya toh dekh liya!

Tron Legacy is about how this young, cute looking dude goes into a digital gaming world his father had created some 20 years ago. After going there, he finds his father trapped and so tries to get him out of there but realizes that there’s an evil man who can also get out and cause a lot of damage to the real world. So it’s about how the dude tries to win and get back home.

Let me tell you from first only that I’m not an action movie fan, especially sci-fi action so this had to be really good for me to like! Unfortunately it wasn’t. My friends think that I’d rather go watch movies like ‘Band Baaja “Barsaat”’ and the like (which I love watching, by the way) and to that I’d like to say that I’ve seen both and they haven’t; and I still maintain that ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ is a good movie…way better than this shit!

I agree this movie is graphically very well done… the special effects are superb; one of the things that lacks is the adventure that the movie should have had. The story was pretty predictable which is ok but the screenplay and dialogues were rubbish and the movie just didn’t seem to end…it was so long! In fact, I felt like going to sleep while watching it. After every action sequence there was a bland scene full of bhashan with poor acting. Also the entire film is not in 3d which they mention even at the beginning and I don’t get the point of that.

So, yes. Tron Legacy is bakwaas and I’m very happy watching the movies that I usually watch. I wont recommend you watch it unless you’re a guy and all you care to watch is action.

Toy Story 3- Movie Review

Roochster

Ok for the first time, Twitter had a “promoted trending topic” which means that the Disney Pixar Animation Studios left no stone unturned to make sure Toy Story 3- the final flick of the trilogy got all the publicity; and it was all worth it.

Woody, Buzz and the toy gang are back with a bang in this fun, adventurous and emotional story about growing up and moving on. As their owner Andy prepares to depart for college, his loyal toys find themselves in daycare, where crazy little kids and mean toys don’t treat them very well. Now, all of the toys must band together in one final, crazy scheme to escape their confines and return home to Andy.

There’s really not much to say about this movie. Brilliant animation, good storyline and we already love the characters! I had missed Toy Story 2 but I didn’t feel like I missed something. At the same time, I felt this movie is a perfect ending to the trilogy… It didn’t seem incomplete like Shrek. The only thing I fail to understand is that theek hai, the movie is in 3D but I think it would’ve been the same even normally. Faaltu mein don’t think about spending extra watching it in 3D!

Lotso- the evil bear was so evil I actually felt like hitting him and Buzz Lightyear was too adorable… my hero in this one! Even the Barbie-Ken romance was very cute! Overall, Toy Story 3 is a nice movie with lots of emotions and should not be missed if you’re a Disney Pixar fan.

Rating- 3.5/5
