If you want to understand this, the 1989 batman is much more Comic-y about this. In fact, you should see the animated "The killing Joke", it follows a similar origin story, but the ending of that can put any movie ever made by DC to shame.

I have always found the animated movies made by DC to be darker and more intense than their usual movies.

Killing joke was a big hit to the guts!

El Camino, the movie sequel to Breaking Bad starring Aaron Paul, released on Netflix yesterday. While it is a must-watch for any fan of the series (mea culpa), as a standalone the movie disappoints. There is no plot as such and overall it feels like an extension of the series, a couple of bonus Christmas episodes if you will.

The usual suspects are all there including a cameo by the kingpin himself, and references to the series are plentiful. Even then I would rate it as 7/10 at best.

Want to go Watch Pineapple Express on Prime Video. Seth Rogen & James Franco are simply hilarious. Giving the movie 5 / 5 stars.

Warning = If you aren't a Seth Rogen fan, you might not like it as much:


And if you are a Seth Rogen fan, this one is for you:

Watched the movie '42' yesterday. It chronicles the story of Jackie Robinson - the first black Major League Baseball player and his history-making signing with the Brooklyn Dodgers. Unbelievable, what this man achieved under the circumstances that he did - hostility from all MLB players/ teams including his own, press, spectators, hotel staff etc. The no. 42 jersey has been retired from MLB in his honor. I would rate this movie as a must watch.

Watched Upstarts on Netflix. A fairly true-to-life depiction of startup culture with some solid, if not spectacular, performances from the mainly new lead actors. Worth a watch.

This is 3 Idiots done the way it should been.

One movie to look forward in November is 'The Irishman'. Martin Scorsese has roped in the good old team De Niro, Joe Pesci, Thelma Schoonmaker (all of them in their late 70s now). Only Frank Vincent is no more. Don't think it'll make it to theatres here, besides too much sanskaari censorship doesn't do any good.

Oho!! It's Robert De Niro & about mob, then it's a must watch

Edit - Just observed, it's Al Pacino & Joe Pesci involved as well, if only Ray Liotta was involved, then I may call it as Good Fellas part 2

Zombieland 2 : 3.5 / 5

A good riot filled and full of wisecrack shots movie. Continues from where the first movie left off, added a few additional characters with their own "character".

Nothing great about this movie, but if you enjoyed the first one, then this should hit the target again.

Saw The Shawshank Redemption again after a gap of about nine years since my first watch of this great movie!
No doubt this movie has been at number one rank on IMDB. Great script and acting and the fabulous narration by Morgan Freeman.

Can't wait to re-watch it already for the third time which I guess will happen couple of years down the line.

With each re-watch, there are new things to notice and appreciate which somehow one misses the first time.

Ford V Ferrari

Looks like an exciting movie for petrolheads with the underdog as a theme, more about it here:

American automotive designer Carroll Shelby and fearless British race car driver Ken Miles battle corporate interference, the laws of physics and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary vehicle for the Ford Motor Co. Together, they plan to compete against the race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966

Watched "Can you ever forgive me" on Hotstar. Strongly recommend it - 4 out of 5 stars. A very different kind of movie with a different kind of story on a different kind of woman.

True story (love TRUE stories) about a writer who hit tough times financially, and starts created forged letters to sell to collectors. Top class acting by all

Martin Scorsese (the director) is famous for (mostly Italian origin) mafia movies. Robert de Niro has been associated with him since Taxi Driver. Joe Pesci and Frank Vincent have been associated since the next movie Raging Bull. He does employ voice over narration to good effect in all his movies.
