Mad Max Movie Review : Why Fury Road is so awesome

  1. They didnot use computer generated effects, they used human generated effects.
  2. They made sure 3D was actually realistic and not just a rip off to charge more money.
  3. Tom Hardy and Theron are awesome actors. So are Hoult. No the splendid wifey was not a splendid actress again.
  4. The same director and the same villain as 1979! movie
  5. Design ! Design !
  6. Witness the V8 riding off to Valhalla.
  7. The sound track was actually appropriate to the context and delivered!
  8. Double guitar throwing flames from a guitarist suspended in air in a truck full of speakers and drum players!
  9. Mechanical Engineering is much more cool than Computer Science engineering in terms of visual effects :-p
  10. I wish Mel Gibson had made a cameo. or Tina Turner!

Movie Review Fast and Furious 7 Times Lucky

23#The Seventh Movie in a franchise and yet it scores high in ooh aah moments of car chases, crashes, stunts and surprisingly even the emotional content and appeal. This one is a true send off for the beloved Paul Walker with Vin Diesel, Rocky, Jason Statham, and pals making this the start of a hot hot summer movie season. Oh yeah and watch how they top the MI4/Tom Cruise stunt in Burz Khalifa and how O Conner  gets the best send off in a movie since the Joker ended with an Oscar.

 

 

Movie Review American Sniper

clint_sniper_illoClint Eastwood is a director I enjoyed as much as I did his acting chutzpah in his younger days. Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby, Gran Torino and Unforgiven are some of his best works. Mildly disappointing is his treatment of the rather incredible story of an ordinary human being caught up in extra ordinary events to become one of the most celebrated solders of one of the most celebrated special forces teams of the planet. Ironically what is jarring is not the violence and the killing but the transition from war time to peace time. The drums beating in the background of the killing scenes, Bradley Cooper’s over reliance on his eyes while mangling his otherwise perfect method acting routine- all take away points from the fact that Chris Kyle was both a great human and a great soldier. Some of the scenes seem quite implausible, but war is as implausible to us sitting in the arm chair as peace is to savages. Watch it for how horrible war is, without the  expectations ofa  genius. Keep your expectations low and this is a still a really good movie.
