Melissa McCarthy has a decent fan following, and this might have compelled the makers of the movie to make a film like 'Tammy'. The film which got released on July 2nd 2014 is turning out to be a Box Office disaster, and it is receiving mostly negative reviews from all corners. IMDB has given a rating of 4.7/10 for Tammy, and this clearly shows the attempt which went in vain.
The movie portrays the story of Tammy (Melissa McCarthy) who gets fired from office due to regular late coming instances. The mentally shattered lady on her way back to home encounters problems with her car, and things get even worsened when she sees her husband (Nat Faxon) having a romantic meal with the lady (Toni Collete) in neighborhood. She then leaves to her home, and starts a journey with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon). After a happening journey, Tammy divorces her husband, and starts a life with Bobby, a nice guy whom she met during his journey.
The movie does have its fine moments, but it was not capable to enhance the grip. The film was an in and out McCarthy show, and she have carried the whole movie in her shoulders. We cannot imagine none other than McCarthy in the role of Tammy. But all her screen presence was spoiled by pathetic direction and a loose script (script is handled by Melissa McCarthy). The principal intention of the movie was to make you laugh, but it falls way short of expectations. The film have good intentions and an ensemble star cast. But if you have a weak script in hands, then nothing will work out, and Tammy loudly proclaims this message.
'The Purge Anarchy' directed by James DeMonaco hit the theaters on July 18th 014, and the initial response from the audience and critics are highly positive in nature. Just like its prequel (The Purge), this movie also portrays the fictional story of Purge, where all crimes are legalized for a time span of 12 hours. Murders are strongly encouraged during this time, and this basic plot itself gives immense chance for making the screen red.
The movie is set in the streets, and the mayhem may follow even to your doorsteps. The film portrays the story of a small group of people who unite themselves in the murderous night. A cop (Frank Grillo) who sets out to take revenge on her son's death, and you will also see a mother and daughter (Carmen Ejogo and Zoë Soul) in the streets. In the other side, we can see a couple (Zach Gilford and Kiele Sanchez) whose car gets breakdown during their course to their home. The terrifying journey of these set of people forms the remaining part of the movie.
All the actors have done their role in an impeccable manner, and special mention should be given to Frank Grillo who made a realistic performance of the cop. Zach Gilford was charming, and he was amply supported by Kiele. The movie can boast about its technical brilliance even though it was made in a very less budget. All the shots have been selected by the director with finesse, and the locations of the movie are quite matching for a dark themed violent movie. If you are a fan of violent blood shedding films, then The Purge Anarchy will be the perfect choice, and it will not disappoint you in any manner. The dark streets will haunt you to the fullest, and it will make you sit in the edge of your seats for 103 minutes.
There are some sequels which will satisfy you much more than its already extraordinary prequel. 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is such a movie which easily recreates the magic of 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes'. The film which had a United States release on July 11th 2014 was opened to highly positive reviews, and the making of the film was praised by both critics and audiences alike.
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' begins 10 years after the events of its prequel. The world is not the same like never before, and a very deadly virus is wiping off the human race from the planet. The population of humans in the world are getting decreased day by day, and they are all trying hard to survive in the planet. On the other hand, apes under the leadership of Ceaser (Andy Serkis) are surviving in the dense forests of California. Ceaser is assisted by his top general Koba (Toby Kebbell). Things takes a new turn when some humans reach the forest to access the dam to fulfill their electricity needs. Ceaser who have sympathy towards humans allows them to enter the forest, but Koba is quite critical about this decision. All these developments soon result in a war between humans and apes, and the rest of the movie portrays the fight of these two races to affix their dominance in the planet.
The movie is perfectly packed with all kinds of commercial elements, and it will not make your bored for even a second. All the performances are top notch, and special mention should be given to Toby Kebbel who shivered the audience with his menacing looks. The script is written in a neat way, and it is executed to perfection by director, Matt Reeves.
'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' is amazingly crafted, and it will be the perfect choice if you love science fiction films with some emotional backdrop. Have you seen Planet of Apes released in 2001? it was the movie which were too based on apes.
Sex Tape, the movie which got released in July 18th, 2014 is nothing but the same old wine which is filled in a new bottle. This Jake Kasdan directorial was ruling the headlines from the date of its announcement, but when it reached theaters, it spoiled all the expectations in its most adverse manner. The movie is cliched to the core, and it has some terrible scenes which we have already witnessed an umpteen numbers of times in the past.
The movie portrays the story of Annie (Camron Diaz) and her husband Jay (Jason Seigel). The ten years of togetherness blended with work and parenthood have changed them a lot, and now they are not able to taste the intense heat of romantic sexual encounters. In this juncture, they decide to make a sex tape of their own to spice up their relationship. But things were not going good for the couples, and the tape gets leaked to the public. The basic plot of the movie seems interesting, but it is shot in the most pathetic manner by the director and the crew. There are many moments of yawn in the film, and it will not glue you to the seats except for the first few minutes. The only saving grace about the movie is its duration. The film is only 90 minutes, and it will not check your patience to a great extend.
For Camron Diaz and Jason Seigel, the roles of Annie and Jay were just cake walks. But the poorly written script derailed their performance finesse, and finally, it ended up as a below average romantic comedy which will offer you nothing other than yawns and headache. Renowned critics all over the world are panning the movie, and this is quite visible in its collection reports.
'Sex Tape' will not create any impacts in the minds of viewers, and it is not recommendable for people who considers movie as a medium for entertainment and fun. 'Say a big blatant NO to Sex Tape, and protect yourself from getting a terrible headache'.
Despite the fact that movie has arrived with a tag of sequel, it dispenses with all the characters from the previous films is a spectacular visual and aural experience. It will offer the best in class visual effects to the Transformers die hard fans, rendering in precisely-engineered 3D all manner of ingeniously designed organic, mechanic, mutated imaginary creatures enacting breakneck action and wreaking large-scale mayhem with relentless impact. Apart from the eye catching visuals the action choreography is another thing that keeps the viewers intact with the movie. The music embodied at climatic moments is disappointing and not apt with the scenes and creates discrepancy in the mood of the viewers.
Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor has performed according to their capabilities and have kept intact the star attraction of the film and first time in the Transformer series human actors are actually enjoyable. Michael Bay’s interest to improve the flaws of the previous series are applaud able and segment will also make piles of money. It cannot be stated that this will do wonders at box office but it can surely be an option of entertainment for your weekends for 2 hours 40 minutes.
