Terminator Genisys, Review: Old or obsolete?

Terminator Genisys, Review: Old or obsolete? Also known as Terminator 5 and released in Real D, 3D and IMAX 3D, Genisys is an elaborately written but largely uni-dimensional tale of the saga that poses the ‘eternal’ question: what if machines tried to take-over the world? By machines, it is meant humanoids, cyborgs, robots and other hybrids with almost unbeatable strength. Either ennui has set in, or the script is too convoluted and complex, or, frankly, the execution is not compe...

Insidious: Chapter 3, Review: The Man Who Can’t Breathe v/s Elise, the Psychic A prequel to the Lambert haunting (Insidious: Chapters 1 and 2), Chapter 3 (3 precedes 1 and 2?) has a few moments that really put the fear of God into you, and some that need you to be an Insidious Insider to appreciate.

Inside Out, Review: Animated emotions on a roller-coaster ride

Inside Out, Review: Animated emotions on a roller-coaster ride What if our emotions had lives of their own and operated like computer programmes, in their own make-believe world of fantasy and science-fiction? Inside Out personifies the feelings of a young girl and her parents and tries to manipulate their lives from inside their brains, without directly interfering, but subtly planting moods and reactions along the way. It has an interesting concept and some great technical wizardry to go wi...

Spy, Review: Mel iss a delight

Spy, Review: Mel iss a delight Spy thrillers have spawned spoofs by the dozen, ever since James Bond’s maiden foray, Dr. No. (We can discount the earlier Casino Royale). Almost all of them were done in the farce/slapstick style. Here comes one that is part satire, part tribute, but laced with original entertaining punches. In spite of a protagonist who is a literal heavy-weight, and some off-colour jokes, writer-director Paul Feig succeeds in making the audience root for her, like a reg...

Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge

Insurgent, Review: Prior knowledge Metaphors, here, metaphors there, metaphors everywhere. Besides metaphors, there’s a lot of pain and anguish and a large take-away moral in Insurgent: unity in diversity/let a thousand flowers bloom/different does not mean bad or hostile/religion or caste should preach respect and love for others, not hatred. In that milieu, the appropriate title for the second coming, Divergent being the first foray, should have been Convergent. Obviously, that would ...

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Review: Ode to Mari-age and Ageless Love

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Review: Ode to Mari-age and Ageless Love Title reminds you of the first film in the franchise, released three years ago? Of course it does. It also reminds you of My Big, Fat, Greek Wedding, Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines and Oh Dad! Poor Dad! Mama’s Hung You in the Closet and I’m Feelin So Sad! There’s something about long titles! No surprise though that most of them are comedies. This one has lots of comedy, while garn...

The couple and their team are research scientists working on a serum (Lazarus, the original title of the film) that could revive dead beings.
