The Kings of Summer

Didn't have any expectations, but the movie turned out to the best I've watched in a few weeks. Right mix of comedy and emotions. Great acting by the three central characters and Nick Offerman. At 90 mins, the movie is short and sweet. It's reminiscent of boyhood; what we've all gone through at some point in our adolescence.

Watched The Conjuring last night. It was really scary without any gory details. On top of that I watched it in theatre in 12.30am show. Was really scared coming back .

I don't watch horror movies regularly, so I can't compare it with other horror movies. But I loved this movie.

Rating 4.5/5

We are the millers:

What a lame movie. predictable story line and the movie is quite a drag at a lot of places. I would rate it a 1/5. Please don't even bother a free screening on star movies / HBO.

If you liked 'The Conjuring', watch this film called 'Insidious'. It's directed by James Wan and is quite a scary movie. Other recent horror films worth watching are:

Dark Skies and Evil Dead (2013 re-make) - this one's a bit heavy on the gore though.

I still watch this whenever it's on.
But isn't there a massive departure? In that, he is aware of who he was from the start?
Can't wait for this now, and hope there's no "dark" treatment here.

not sure, but sounds like Dogs of War or the Dirty Dozen.

Riddick - 1/5

After the second leg of the series over a decade ago, I had quite a lot of expectations from the third leg. But nothing of that sort happened. With a storyline that is almost a replica of the first movie, and no absolute logic in why and how the story moves, it's a complete waste; all the more if you are a fan of this series.

Riddick - 0/5
Not worth watching even if you get the tickets for free! Waste of 2 hours! Only good thing was, it put me to sleep for the 2 hours!
It has nothing to write home about! No BGM, no story. It was so pointless!
My verdict: Please stay away! Dont waste your 120 bucks!

Just a reminder, Rush is releasing this Friday (20th Sep)

Will definitely be a movie to watch for us Formula 1 and automobile lovers. Has been receiving very good reviews, it may be an Oscar contender come year end. Currently at 95% Fresh Rating on Rottentomatoes.

While I too am eager to watch it, I wonder how much relevant Robocop would be today when Ironman is the current human Robot superhero.

Watched a couple of movies in last few days

Oblivion

I am starting to mark Tom Cruise to "Do Not Watch" category. He looks & feels the same in all movies. The movie had two things to watch out for Morgan Freeman & those amazing Drones. Storyline is nice but predictable.

2.5/5

Star Trek - Into the Darkness

I am kicking myself for missing it in Theaters, I had low expectation but boy did it surprise. The Character depiction is so true to the original, the special affects were great.

Did anyone watch the last bit, I got goosebumps when they started playing the original theme Song along with the Famous line which William Shatner used to say

4/5

Now You See Me

I was waiting for this movie to be available on DVD as I missed watching it in Theater. This one of the best magic based movies that i have seen in long time. The plot keeps you at the edge of your seat & it does not disappoint.

Without revealing too much, its a must watch.

4/5
