I don't know how I or my daughter will react to this. I think this will be a distraction more than an experience. More like watching a movie while on the carousal in an amusement park.


The 3D has greatly improved, but I am pretty sure I would enjoy any 3D movie on a regular 2D big screen too.

Saw an older movie on netflix - Charlie Wilson's War. Will give it a 4/5.

Good move. Has two of actors I quite like - Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks. Based apparently on true events surrounding the Soviet-Afgan war and role played by political diplomacy.

Wonderful pace all along. At times I felt aspects of political/international diplomacy was rather trivialized a bit (and hence one less point in my rating!).

Watch Tucker on Netflix.
A lot like the Aviator. A bit like Ford vs Ferrari too.
One man's passion and obsession and innovativeness and belief against all odds.

Tragic - the 'big corporation politics and conformist mentality along with the 'dont rock the boat' attitude.

Knives Out : 4 / 5

A brilliant who-dun-it movie that reminds one of reading Poirot or Miss Marple books, in a very British-ly take (although a few of the characters keep pushing in Southern accents that turn out to be a very poor imitation of the accent) of the entire scene.

The best part - there are several twists and turns in the storyline and even though the number of stars is a bit too much for this kind of simplistic story, none of the actors take the central stage at any point of the movie.

Worth a watch in the hall if you can. Or just wait for a few weeks for it to be grabbed up by one of the streaming sites - this is one movie perfect for a couch potato situation!

Agree with your rating review. Certainly a 4/5 from me. Very entertaining, no nonsense movie with a solid plot, well thought out intricate character lines and a satisfying climax. The twists and turns are pretty neat as well. Caught it on the last leg of its screening at the theater during the last week of December, and came away thoroughly satisfied as a lover of the mystery and whodunit genre of movies.

Bonus - the gorgeous BMW from yesteryears that one of the characters drives. Stunning piece of kit, that.

Charade

Watched it over the weekend on Prime Video, classical (1963) Whodunnit with lovely Audrey Hepburn in the lead. Old school thriller. Romance and suspense ensue in Paris as a woman is pursued by several men who want a fortune her murdered husband had stolen.

I would recommend it to everyone who liked "Kniives Out".

The Divide:
Depressing dark movie. 2/5

Zombieland Double Tap:
Waste of time. Just a lot of nagging between the characters and so few zombies! 2/5

The first was a lot of fun indeed. But this, i don't know...i did watch it completely but somehow just didn't feel right.

Does have high ratings over at imdb so who knows maybe it was just me

Anna - A good spy thriller with a healthy dose of John wick style action sequences.
Rated - 8/10

Avengement - Scott Adkins at his best. He has vastly improved his acting. He needs to do more A list action movies. Story isn't great but fights are quite good.
Rated - 7/10

Zombieland Double Tap- Pointless sequel. There is no story at all and all attempts at humor falls flat. First part was so much fun and this is just plain boring. Best to avoid.
Rated - 4/10

Unfortunately not in our movie halls, which is a real pity.

I saw it in the most unlikely of all places, on YOUTUBE. I was surprised to actually see a decent print, almost HD quality. As expected, the video was removed the next day itself (on copyright grounds by Disney Corporation).

I watched The Hundred Foot Journey recently. Being a Spielberg movie one might associate it with dinosaurs and action. But that isn't the case this time around.
The film revolves around an Indian family who moved to France to start a restaurant. The restaurant is located right across a Michelin star restaurant.
It does have a few comedy and thrilling moments.
The Background score is pleasant and relaxing.
And as expected Om Puri and Helen Mirren deliver in spades. I Thoroughly enjoyed watching this movie.

Rated - 5/5
