Watched Olympus has fallen yesterday.
Same old story of USA got under an attack and lone soldier saves. Gerard & aaron performance was OK.
Action sequence (read demolition) was nice with good CG.
Overall a one time flick to watch over a weekend.

2.5/5

I saw Robert Redford starrer The Company You Keep. The movie could have been much more but not a bad watch for one time.

Rating:3.5/5

The wolverine

Well, this was not a movie I waited for at all, but went and watched just for the heck of it.
Origins was good, but the effects seemed to have been done by the lowest bidder. Not so here. Precise effects, crisp and clean.
Slight tinge of trying the dark knight treatment by showing him battling his demon, but sense prevailed, and it is not too much.
Good action, and a good trace of the wolverine's history.
Throughout the movie you can sense that there is a build up to a sequel.
I suggest you do sit through the end credits. If you're a fan of the xmen, you will be hooting, for sure.

4/5

A very old one but hilarious. Quite a long movie too.

Watched Spy Games starring Robert Redford and Brad pitt and directed by Tony Scott. A fast paced spy story without the usual storyline. Found it really interesting.

Rating: 3.5/5. Worth watching.

It is DEFINITELY a film to watch! It is intellectual, philosphical, visually incredible and above all, an excellent directorial venture by Mr.Gandhi.

I went to watch it without any expectations - in fact, I was a bit skeptical about the film since it was actively promoted by Kiran Rao. But once I saw it, my respect for Kiran Rao and my respect for Anand Gandhi has increased a-la-GTA style (RESPECT+).

Sid's Rating: 4.5/5
(Minus half a point because of excessive "elitist" category marketing of the film.)

The Wolverine:

A good superhero movie, and the good thing is that the director has added an emotional side as well to our troubled protagonist. The action sequences are nothing extraordinary, except for a bullet train sequence in Japan , which i'm sure most have seen in the trailers. But on the large screen, the set-piece looks thrilling.

On, the acting front, Hugh Jackman is ever reliable and carries the movie on his quite broad shoulders. Pun intended , whereas the rest of the characters are a bit one-dimensional. Worth a watch definitely.

3/5 personally.

PS: Please do not miss the post-credits scene. A Marvel trademark and probably one of the better post-credits scene that i can think of.

Been to wolverine on Friday. Don't expect too much with the "wolverine" tag. You will be disappointed. This one is only for a true wolverine fan. Barring a few parts the movie is predictable.

One time watch. 3.5/5 for me..!
