How to Train Your Dragon: 2, Review

How to Train Your Dragon: 2 “Life here is amazing. Dragons used to be a bit of a problem, but now they've all moved in,” goes the voice-over in the beginning of How to Train Your Dragon: 2. It is a 102-minute sequel to HTTYD 1 (2010), which was directed by Dean Deblois and Chris Sanders, the Lilo & Stitch (2002) duo. Part 2 is directed by Deblois, solo. It's been five years since Hiccup (now 20) and his dragon Toothless successfully united dragons and Vikings on the i...

Maleficent, Review

Maleficent: Wicked witch is a Jolie good fellow! Disney's 1959 classic Sleeping Beauty takes new shape, and is retold, with a longish back-story, in which the vamp comes across as the true heroine. A beautiful, pure-hearted young ‘woman’, Maleficent has an idyllic life, growing up in a peace-loving forest kingdom of quaint animals, birds and varied creatures, until one day, when an invading army from the neighbouring human kingdom of King Henry threatens the harmony of the land...

X-Men: Days of Future Past, Review

X Men: Days of Future Past In 1967, Moody Blues released their second rock album, Days of Future Passed. Changing the last two letters of the last word, two issues of The Uncanny X-Men comic book series from 1980-81, written by Chris Claremont (a consultant on the film version), became Days of Future Past. Incidentally, his comic has seen three adaptations already: X-Men (1992), Wolverine and the X-Men (2008) and The Super Hero Squad Show (2009). The 2014 film is set in two time zones, 50 yea...

Predicting Oscar Contenders From This Year's Cannes Festival

                  Every year, thousands of movies will be released into the theaters or on-demand, but only a handful of them will garner the acclaim to be nominated at the Academy Awards. Usually, the Cannes Film Festival is a perfect starting gate for films to make an early push for an Oscar, as evidenced in previous competition films such as The Artist and last year's Nebraska.  This year the trend looks to continue, as cr...

Oscar Winning Director Alfonso Cuaron in Cannes Selling New Film 'Forsaken'

                  Academy Award winning director Alfonso Cuaron was in Cannes yesterday pitching his newest film "Forsaken", a Gael Garcia Bernal led thriller about a man trying to cross the Sonora desert in hopes of getting into the United States.

Fading Gigolo, Review

Fading Gigolo Fading Gigolo is a misnomer, since the protagonist in this tale only becomes a gigolo several minutes into the film, and never fades away. Though Woody Allen (now 79) shares a generous amount of screen space with John Turturro, the film is written and directed by Turturro, not Allen. It is not often that one sees Allen acting in films directed by others. So, Fading Gigolo falls in the category of What’s New Pussycat?, Casino Royale , Play It Again Sam, The Front, Scenes Fr...

Million Dollar Arm, Review

Million Dollar Arm In the unofficial national game of India, cricket, anybody who can bowl at 90 mph/150 kmph or faster could be described as possessing a golden arm, or a million dollar arm. It emerges after seeing Million Dollar Arm (MDA) that the same applies to baseball, though the ball itself is made differently and the bowling (pitching, to be exact) is done in a different bio-metric action.\ Based on a true story, Million Dollar Arm is an American film about the quest of an American s...

The Amazing Spiderman: 2, REVIEW

The Amazing Spiderman: 2 James Bond villain Goldfinger had a ‘web of sin’, ‘don’t go in’ warned Shirley Bassey. Now,in the days of the Web (Internet), a director called Marc Webb spins a tale with everyday lovers and an orphaned, masked crime-fighter with super-powers--strength, instant healing and darted ropes and webs that enable him to swing across skyscrapers and to wrap/hold his friends and foes. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (aka The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Ri...

It involves visiting a spiritual community in northern California interviewing its visionary founder: Swami Kriyananda and his Ananda World Brotherhood Village. Kriyananda had fo...

Divergent, Review

Divergent, Review Divergent is set in a world that has been reduced to a city, Chicago, due a conflict that destroyed the rest of the planet. There has been peace for the last 100 years, an achievement mainly attributed to the principle of dividing people factions, based on human virtues: Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (kindness), Candor (honesty), Dauntless (bravery), and Erudite (intelligence). Anyone who does not conform to one of these five is banished to the city outskirts, as "fa...

It is the ninth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Two years after the Battle of New York, Steve Rogers/Captain America is taken by Natasha Romanoff on a mission-- to rescue the hostages of a hijacked S.H.I.E.L.D ship. But there are two parallel secret agendas behind this apparently purposeless crime that will reveal sho...

Divergent, Preview Divergent is an action-adventure film set in a not-too-distant world where people are divided into distinct factions, based on human virtues: Abnegation (selflessness), Amity (kindness), Candor (honesty), Dauntless (bravery), and Erudite (intelligence). Anyone who does not conform is banished to the city outskirts, as "factionless." A person who values all five virtues equally, and who has the ability to do so, is known as "Divergent." Beatrice ‘Tr...

Review of the film Noah

Noah Whenever a film is attempted on a religious/mythological/historical premise, there are bound to be objections to its content, or form, or both. Even fiction and biographical movies face this hostility, and have learnt to live with it. Orthodox believers might find it difficult to watch Noah objectively and avoid comparison to the holy text. Liberals and other film-buffs are more likely to detach themselves (or not to attach themselves in the first place) from the words of the Book, and r...

Review of the film Sabotage

Sabotage Exciting, but not the most appropriate title for the story. Sabotage was called Ten, before they settled on Sabotage. Apparently, the subject has had title issues right from 1943, a few years after Dame Agatha Christie wrote the multiple murder mystery novel. It is, after all, her most adapted piece. In '43, it was staged as a play under the book’s original UK title, Ten Little Niggers, but only after changing the ending. In 2005, Kevin Elyot, screenwriter for man...

Need for Speed? Indeed!

user
Need for Speed Steven Spielberg/DreamWorks SKG Pictures’ production Need for Speed is a rivetting car racing thriller, which, though inspired by a video-game, is compelling viewing, even as a stand-alone brand. It justifies the add-on 3D after-thought as a wise decision. Stunts that were confined to clever use of the principle of ‘persistence of vision’, and created by smart editing, in films of the 60s and 70s, like Bullitt and French Connection, come-off spectacularly smooth...
