    Movies I’ve watched these two months

    Anyone who knows me, knows my love for movies. Little wonder that over a year back I got myself the Cineworld unlimited movie card. And, I usually go by myself. Yesterday I watched four back to back movies, breaking my record of three movies 🙂 In Time In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage – a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the…

    Movie review: Real Steel

    First we had boxers and when we realised that they could be replaced by something less destructible, there were robots. Real Steel tells the story of one such robot, a promoter Charlie (Hugh Jackman) and his 11-year old son Max (Dakota Goyo). When Charlie makes a deal to sign off custody of his son Max, little did he know what he was getting himself into. After several failed robot boxing events, Charlie is on the brink of losing hope, when Max finds a scrapyard robot. Little do they know that this junkyard bot would one day bring them back to the limelight. Source: IMP Awards Real Steel is a brilliantly…

    Movie review: X-Men First Class

    Before the days of Professor X and Magneto, Charles Xavier and Eric Lensherr were simple special people trying to make their way through life, figuring out their “powers”. X-Men First Class tells their story. Source: MoviePosterDB.com It is usually very difficult to maintain a story line that keeps the user engrossed over several movies. X-Men has had its ups and downs over the past several movies. I loved X-Men Origins and this one does do justice to the ongoing series. The special effects are really good and the whole set of mutants makes it even better. You get a preview of Wolverine, as Charles and Eric attempt to recruit Mutants…

    Movie review: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

    Ever since I watched the first movie, I have been an even bigger fan of Mr. Depp, especially his portrayal of Capt. Jack Sparrow. And, so I have made it a point to watch each movie in the series and have loved each of them. In the latest movie, Capt. Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) runs into his ex-flame Angelica (Penélope Cruz) and together they set out to find the fountain of youth, partly for them and partly because Blackbeard (Ian McShane) wants to find the fountain to extend his life. But, they are not the only ones hunting for the fountain. The Spanish and Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush) are also in…

    Movie review: Thor

    When Thor (played by Chris Hemsworth), the god of thunder and lightening, decides to disobey his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins), he is banished from the realm of Azgard to earth without his strength and powers. His hammer follows after him and becomes a point of great mystery for the people of Earth. On earth, Thor meets and falls in love with the gorgeous Jane Foster (played by Natalie Portman). But, life isn’t all rosy as he would hope to be, especially when you have an evil brother called Loki (Tom Hiddleston), who has made up his mind to kill Thor, take over the Azgard throne and destroy earth. And, so…

    Movie review: Hanna

    Hanna wasn’t my first choice of the movie to watch on Friday the 13th. But, when we reached late for Insidious, we decided to give Hanna a go. Hanna is the story of a 16 year old girl (played by Saoirse Ronan) who has been trained all through her life by her father (played by Eric Bana). She isn’t home schooled like most other kids, but is excellently trained in multiple languages and the art of war. Until it was time for her to return… Cate Blanchett plays the antagonist Marissa in the movie and for both Hanna and Marissa, it is either kill or be killed. As Hanna makes…

    Movie review: Limitless

    The possibilities are endless when you put your mind to it. At least that’s what this movie intends us to think. Eddie Morra is an out of work writer trying to write his first great book. Weeks of failure and the subsequent rejection by his girlfriend and Eddie believes that this is the beginning of the end. Until he meets his brother-in-law who gives him an experimental drug that brings out the 100% in him. With great power comes great responsibility and also a lot of enemies. That seemingly innocent pill soon heralds a lot of fun and a lot of chaos for Eddie. Thus begins his desperate journey to…

    Movie review: I Am Number Four

    Here’s a movie with an excellent concept but is let down by terrible acting and an equally bad story line. John, a.k.a. Number Four is a an above average teenager who is infact an alien from a planet far far away taking refuge on earth, running from town to town, hiding from more evil aliens who want him and eight others dead. They have got Number One, Two and Three and now it is his turn. While the concept isn’t very original (we do have Transformers, don’t we?). However, the concept of 9 does lend a unique touch. Throw in a relatively cute girl and a relatively hot, gun bearing…
