Movie Review Transformers

Transformers # is a long long movie. so long that you wonder when the robots would stop fighting and start singing songs of peace.

Megan Fox ‘s replacement is so bad, you wish they replaced the director. This is a robot overkill, to the point of a horror massacres. But if you saw the first two movies, and want to know what happened next go ahead.  The  early half of the movie with the Moon Landing was good, but somewhere down the line the director falls in love with himself rather than with his art. Shia LeBeouf is wasted once again in a big action franchise thriller-but he would rather be a well paid safe big movie star than be an actor plying his grease paint. Oh yes, some parts of the movie you cant really figure out who is an autobot, who is a decepticion and who is the idiot for paying extra for a 3 D movie.

Still , Enjoy .

Review- Iron Man2

Tony Stark is back! and he is cooler, with a hotter sidekick (Scarlett J),better villain (Mickey Rourke), cooler robots, and plus the same old winning sequel formula. Kind of like Matrix 2 had all the multiple Agent Smiths we get some multiple drone attacks versus Iron Man (or Men- as D Cheadle becomes the second Iron Man, stealing his suit – but whats an Iron Man suit between friends). Watch it- summer is here and can Hollywood Comic Book masala movies be far behind. I especially like the charming way Downey Jr and Rourke can fill the screen- thus proving better actors make even comic books more fun.

Review: Clash of the Titans

This is a good old fashioned action movie disguised as a Greek drama with special effects. I saw the movie in 2D

and it seemed all right. Sam Worthington was awesome as the blood and guts Greek hero, and the cast was nice as well.

The struggles of Perseus, against mighty crabs, assasins, Hades (played by Ralph Fiennes) and titans like Medusa and Kraken all contribute to make a magnificent story . Not since Troy has a classic story like this gained so much attention.

I am not sure if watching in 3D is going to be more entertaining, but the movie was quite nice in action  and sword fights.

Recommended especially for a day when you need a movie break!

The Blind Side – Movie Review

Q Whats a movie review doing on a data mining blog? A Because blogs are read by people who ALSO like movies.

Over the Thanksgiving Holiday- I didnt get much Turkey and spent more time reading Tukey, and the only offer I got on Black Friday in Knoxville, East Tennessee was to take a discount for a tanning studio at Kingston Pike, near my house. So you can imagine my trepidition when I decided to go for a movie on Saturday- hoping for better luck.

There are amusing things in Blind Side, especially if you are a brown guy wearing a bright orange U Tenn T Shirt as I was doing. The beautiful game of the movie, as in all sports movie is however overshadowed by Sandro Bullock’s performance as a rich white woman who takes a black teenager under her wing. Despite the innuendo in a Memphis, Tennessee- which is quite realistic. And horrifying for a non American like me to watch. It kind of reminded me when I was the only guy cheering in Austin Texas at the end of the movie “W” -2008.

For non Tennessee football fans, watch as how the game unites all- as how a common God and morality finds rescue for a kid among horrors. And how number 74 discovers his destiny as the guy who protects the quarter back.

This could be the Hollywood version of SlumDog Millionaire of 2009. Nicely crafted. and yet an intelligent movie. For people who don’t like Twilight 🙂 If you have ever felt unsafe while traveling in a poor black neighbourhood watch this movie. If you live in a black poor neighbourhood- then watch it with your homies.

if you ever watched a game of football and marveled at the magnificent heart break of college football. Watch the movie.

As someone said- Football is like the Mafia in the Godfather movie.

Sooner or later you will get whacked.
