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!

Gulliver’s Travels- Movie Review

Roochster

There are only two reasons why people would watch this movie- 1- Jack Black and 2- One of those childhood stories you wont forget. For me, both these reasons apply.

Inspired from the famous children’s book, Gulliver’s Travels the movie is set in the modern times where Gulliver goes to Bermuda Triangle to do a travel story to impress the girl he loves at work. Circumstances bring him to Lilliput, a place where tiny people live. The movie is about Gulliver’s adventures in this new place and how he gets back home.

Jack Black is known as a funny guy, who hardly makes sense. He’s been a part of some really corny movies in the past and not everyone likes him. I think he’s fun though, so this movie was not bad for me.  Also, Marshall from ‘How I met your mother’ is in it. He’s a great actor and has done a good job in this movie! As I said in the previous paragraph, the movie is set in the modern times so there are a lot of changes made in the story. After the interval, it does seem a little long but I guess the director wanted it that way. There are some jokes which you may not find funny at all because they’re super kiddish so most will not like the movie. But this is not about most; it’s about what I think of the movie.

I think its ok and you should watch it if you like Jack Black and his kinda movies otherwise, just give this a miss.
