Are you the one who have immense free time in life? Even if it is an Yes, you should again think twice before booking the tickets for 'The Boy Next Door' directed by Rob Cohen. The film which stars Jennifer Lopez and Ryan Guzman in the lead role was touted to be an erotic thriller, but when it came out as a movie on January 23, 2015, it literally failed to live up to the expectations. The film is receiving negative reviews from all the corners and after the weekend mash up, the movie has collected $15.6 million from the theaters. Now, let us analyze the movie in detail.
The movie showcases the story of a divorced woman who who falls for a younger man. Soon intense relation develops in between them, which is followed by a series of mild sexual encounters. But at one point of time, their sleazy relation takes a new turn, and it creates huge negative impacts in their lives.
The movie has some hot sequences which are capable to increase the testosterone rush in anybody's body. Jennifer Lopez looked hot and gorgeous, and she literally tried to carry the movie in her own shoulders. But it was actually the script and direction of the film which derailed all the efforts. The director was completely clueless while narrating the story, and he failed to glue the audience throughout the running time.
'The Boy Next Door' is not an extra ordinary movie nor an ordinary one, but it is such a pathetic film crafted by Rob Cohen which is capable to test your patience level.
Movies are meant for providing sheer entertainment and fun for the audience. But 'Strange Magic' directed by Gary Rydstrom literally failed to fulfill its expectations, and it ended up as an average fare with no surprises in the backdrop. The movie which hit the screens on January 23rd 2015 is getting mixed to negative reviews from all corners. This 99 minute animation film has an IMDB rating of 5.5/10 and this clearly symbolizes its below average nature. The Rotten Tomatoes score is also pathetic, as it is only 11% as of now. Now, let us analyze more about this movie.
'Strange Magic' portrays the Bon King, the leader of Dark Forest. He hates the notion of love, and has given orders to destroy all the primroses. Things take a new turn when he meets Marianne, a charming princess. In the meantime, an elf named Sunny is also there in the Dark Forest to collect primrose petals.
The movie has a basic plot which is quite suitable for a fantasy filled animation movie. But the director literally spoiled this golden chance to craft a visually spectacular film. The screenplay of the movie written by David Berenbaum, Irene Mecchi and Gary Rydstrom was poor in all aspects. It was not at all engaging, and it spoiled the finesse of George Lucas' story. The music composed by Marius de Vries was extra ordinary, and this is only one factor which stands tall in this film. “Watch Strange Magic only if you have immense free time in this weekend”.
The only factor which compelled me to book the tickets for ‘Mortdecai’ was the presence of Johnny Depp in the star cast. Being an ardent fan of the actor, I couldn’t resist the temptation, and without any hesitation, I booked the tickets in the first weekend after the movie’s release. But sadly, this decision turned out to be one of the most derailed things which I have ever done in my life. This film directed by David Koepp disappointed me badly, and it failed to create any impact in my mind. The movie currently has an IMDB rating of 5.3/10, and this clearly indicates the low class nature of this movie.
‘Mortdecai’ showcases the story of a charming British aristocrat and part-time shady art dealer Charlie Mortdecai. To meet the expenses of his luxurious lifestyle, he agrees to help a Mi5 officer to find a stolen painting. The journey of Charlie Mortdecai to find the painting forms the remaining part of the movie.
The film is badly crafted by the director, and there is not even a single scene which is shot with finesse. Johnny Depp tried his best to carry the movie in his shoulder, but with a weak screenplay in the backdrop, he had nothing to do. Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor also performed in a good manner, but all their efforts went in vain due to shoddy direction and non engaging dialogues.
Altogether, ‘Mortdecai’ is a movie which may impress people who haven’t seen any comedy films in the past.
'The Wedding Ringer' directed by Jeremy Garelick hit the theaters on January 16, 2015. The movie which stars Kevin Hart and Josh Gad in the lead roles was expected to ring the money bells in style, but it failed to live up to the predictions in Box Office. The movie is getting mixed to positive responses from all corners, but this is not getting reflected in the collections of the movie. As of now, the film has an IMDB rating of 6.8/10. The Rotten Tomatoes rating of the film is 32%. Now, let us analyze the film in detail.
'The Wedding Ringer' showcases the story of Doug Harris who is all set to marry a girl within two weeks. But now a problem arose in his life as he doesn't have a broomsman for the event. Doug calls up on Jimmy Callahan to fit this need. But things take a new turn when when the two develops a bromance.
The movie has a basic plot which is quite suitable for a comedy movie. But the director spoiled a golden chance to craft a top notch film. 'The Wedding Ringer' is not at all a bad movie. It has some fine elements which are capable to impress the audience. But when we consider this movie as a whole, it literaly fails to impress the viewers in all manner.
'The Wedding Ringer' is not a bad film. It can be selected as your weekend film if you love logicless comedy flicks.
'Paddington' directed by Paul King was one of the most elegant comedy films which hit the screens in 2014. The movie recieved highly positive responses upon its release, and emerged as one of the top grossers. The film collected more than $140 million from the theaters. 'Paddington' stars Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters and Jim Broadbent in the lead roles. Ben Whishaw gave voice to the bear. Now, let us analyze the movie in detail.
The movie is based on 'Paddington Bear' written by Michael Bond. The movie showcases the story of a semi intelligent Peruvian Bear who reaches London in search of his home. The bear becomes isolated in the Paddington station. But soon, he captures the attention of the kind Brown family, and they offer him a temporory comfort zone.
The movie is a perfect epitome of making feel good comedy movies. The director has crafted the film in such a perfect manner, and the audience will not get bored even for a second. The screenplay written by Hamish McColl along with the director is engaging with some perfectly crafted sequences.
The visuals of the film are stunning and it will surely impress the audience without any doubts. All the actors have done their roles impeccably well, and these strong performances are undoubtedly the spinal cord of this movie.
Altogether, we can conclude that 'Paddington' is one such movie which will impress all kind of audiences irrespective of age and class.
‘Selma’ directed by Ava DuVernay has made its way to the theaters on January 09, 2015. The film which is touted to be a historical drama has succeeded in its attempt, and it is receiving positive reviews from all corners of the world. The film has a whooping Rotten Tomatoes rating of 99%, and this clearly indicates the top class nature of the movie. ‘Selma’ also succeeded in fetching four golden globe nominations which includes, Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director, and Best Actor, and the film won for Best Song. Now, let us analyze the film in detail.
‘Selma’ showcases the legendary march conducted by Martin Luther King from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. The major aim of the march was to procure equal voting rights for the blacks in United States of America.
The director has succeeded in crafting the movie in an impeccable manner. The visuals literally took the audience to the past, and the cinematographer deserves a special round of applause for his effort. The scenes of march were too realistic, and it served as a clear cut epitome of making uncompromising cinemas.
The actors have done their roles in a decent manner in this movie. The portrayal of Martin Luther King by David Oyelowo was spectacular, and he literally lived as the legend. The supporting line up which includes, Oprah Winfrey, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth and Tom Wilkinson also did their roles in a convincing way.
‘Selma’ is not a movie which is meant for entertainment lovers, but it is for people who love real to the core movies.
The wait is over, and finally, 'Taken 3' has hit the theaters on January 9, 2015. The movie has topped the North American Box Office in the weekend even though it is recieving highly negative reviews from all corners. The Rotten Tomatoes rating of the movie is just 11%, and this clearly showcases the mediocre nature of the movie. As per critics, the director Olivier Megaton has failed miserably to craft the movie as a perfect action thriller. The plot is weak and cliched, and we have witnessed the same scenarios in umpteen numbers of other movies in the past.
The movie showcases the story of Bryan Mills, the ex covert agent who killed so many baddies in the first two installments of the movie. In this film, nobody is taken, instead, Bryan Mills gets falsely accused for murdering his ex wife. The movie showcases the journey of Bryan Mills to find the real culprit. In the meantime, the life of his daughter also comes under threat, and he should take care of that as well.
The movie's basic plot itself is cliched, and this array of cliches continues from the first scene to the last one. The only saving grace of the film is the presence of action icon Liam Neeson. The actor was in full swing, and he portrayed his action badass role with finesse.
'Taken 3' may impress Liam Neeson fans, but it may not create any positive impression in the minds of people who love high octane action movies.
Horror movies like ‘Conjuring’ can scare even the hardest hearted person in the earth. If you are looking out for such a movie, then ‘The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death’ will not fit the slot for you. On the other hand, this Tom Harper directorial will be the perfect choice for people who aim for a ‘Time Pass’ evening movie. As of now, the film has an IMBD rating of 5.9/10, and this clearly showcases its ordinary nature. Now, let us analyze the film in detail.
The basic plot of the film is tailor made for a horror movie, and it is a bit clichéd too. This movie has some students reaching the haunted Eel Marsh house. The uninvited guests in the home awaken the darkest inhabitants, and this forms the major crux of the movie.
The movie can be made as a dark mood horror thriller, but the director literally spoiled the opportunity to craft it with finesse. The screenplay written by Jon Croker was not at all engaging, and in many times, it pulled the audience to a state of boredom. The narration seems shoddy, and it will not make you scared or entertain you at any moments.
Actors have done their roles incredibly well in the movie. Helen McCrory, Jeremy Irvine, Phoebe Fox and Adrian Rawlins were all suited for their respective characters. The performance of these actors was the only saving grace of this movie. “Watch, ‘The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death’ with no expectations, and sometimes, it may entertain you”.
Clint Eastwood is such a filmmaker who knows the pulse of common man. The director has proved his legendary mettle yet again by crafting a well made biographical action film, ‘American Sniper’. The movie which portrays the real life story of U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle has hit the theaters on December 25, 2014. The film got huge initial collections, and most of the theaters witnessed a theatrical status of more than 90%. The reviews of the movie are generally positive in nature, and if it goes like this, then it will surely emerge as one of the biggest grosser in December. Now, let us have a small discussion about the movie.
The movie showcases the life of U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle who is renowned as ‘American Sniper’. His pin point accuracy has saved millions of lives, and this made him a prime target of insurgents. His service in Iraq was quite commendable. After his service, he returns to the family, but soon he realizes that he cannot leave the war behind.
The movie is blessed with some power packed performances from the lead actors. Bradley Cooper who enacted the role of Chris Kyle was simply impeccable, and he literally lived as the legendary American Sniper. He was supported on screen by Sienna Miller and Max Charles. The direction of the film is top notch, and the narration is fast paced.
Altogether, ‘American Sniper’ is one such movie which is loaded with some raw action scenes. ‘Watch it and enjoy the Clint Eastwood magic’.
Pre-Release hype of 'The Interview' directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg was so high beyond means as it discussed a story which has connections with North Korea's dictator Kim Jong Un. The hype was even enhanced when some hackers threatened Sony to stop release of the movie. But finally, the movie made its way to the theaters, and it is getting mixed reviews from all corners. The film currently has a Rotten Tomatoe rating of 52%, and this clearly showcases the mixed response of audience towards the movie. Now, let us analyze the film in detail.
'The Interview' showcases the story of two brilliant journalists who are running a show named 'Skylark Tonight'. North Korea's dictator is a huge fan of the show, and this helps the journalists to fix an interview with him. At this juncture, the CIA steps in, and they ask the journalists to assassinate Kim.
The basic thread of the film is very much suited for a comedy movie. The director duo has succeeded in crafting the movie with perfection, but it lacked that extra punch which is required in a political comedy.
All the actors have done justice to their roles, and special mention should be given to Randall Park who enacted the role of Kim Jong Un with finesse. The screenplay written by Dan Sterling is witty, and this is another highlight of the movie.
Altogether, 'The Interview' is such a film which will make you laugh and think simultaneously even though it is not a comedy classic.
