Re: The English Movies Thread (No Spoilers Please)

Time Trap:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4815122/

This came up in random recommendation on Netflix and imdb ratings seemed to be good at 6.2 with 40k votes.

Movie was good although acting was bad and dialogues were poor and cringeworthy at times. But even with that, I watched the movie to the end!

3/5

Covenant:

What a brutal movie it was. Felt a bit emotionally drained after watching it.

3.5/5

Super Mario Bros:

To get the edge off after watching Covenant, decided to watch something light and boy was this the perfect choice.

For people like me who grew up on these characters, it was a joy to watch

I had a shitfaced grin on my face for most of the movie!
3.5/5

AIR
Watched this over the weekend and absolutely loved it. Matt Damon has nailed the role of 'Sunny'. The character of Michael Jordan's mother was a huge revelation for me, what a strong woman and played with absolute conviction by Viola Davis. Also, they deliberately don't show the face of Michael Jordan or even his voice in the move.

highly recommended, rating - 9/10

Alice, Darling (2022): 4/5

Watched on Lionsgate Play (via Jio)

Wife made me watch it as shes a huge fan of Anna Kendrick. Its the story of a woman trapped in an abusive, controlling, co-dependant relationship. The movie is slow and straightforward, but brilliant acting by Anna Kendrick. She portrays the expressions, mannerisms and body language very well.

The Black Demon: 2.5/5

Another low budget Man Vs Shark Movie. If you like shark movies this one is not for you. All I can say is this is OK but it will never be another Jaws. It amazes me Jaws was made in the early 70s and now they have better graphics and everything and right till this day Jaws was the only shark movie where the shark actually look terrifying and real.

In short a family gets stranded on a defunct oil rig and trying to escape with a ferocious megalodon shark protecting its territory.

Ajmat was mostly in shock but was laughing while in shock. lol.

You have to watch it for entertainment purposes and best is to go with a car gang who can see how stupid it is and laugh at the scenes which arent even funny like accelerating faster by shifting an AT box to P and back to D. lol.
I have to add this to my review. I'm sure you guys have probably seen Fast and Furious 9 before going for Fast X.

When I went for FastX I had not seen 9. Last weekend I decided to complete the series and watched 9.

And...OMG. It is the absolute worst trash movie from all 10. If you hated 9 which I am sure everyone does you probably think Fast X will be worse.

But after seeing 9, FastX is much better. Infact FastX is like a reality show after seeing 9. I cannot believe 9 has the car going to space and shifting a gear stick to go faster in space. Then the car docks with the International space station.

Fast and Furious 9 : 0/5

BLACKBERRY: 3.5/5

After AIR & TETRIS, BLACKBERRY was a bit of letdown. Overacting & Shakey Cam.

A company that toppled global giants before succumbing to the ruthlessly competitive forces of Silicon Valley. This is not a conventional tale of modern business failure by fraud and greed. The rise and fall of BlackBerry reveals the dangerous speed at which innovators race along the information superhighway.

Re: The English Movies Thread (No Spoilers Please)

My son is a big fan of Spiderman and had been telling me from a couple of months about the June 2 release of the new Spiderman movie and eventually, we were at the theatre earlier today. Spiderman - Across the Spider-verse is a fantastic animation movie, it has that comic book feel while watching the movie.
If you happen to watch the earlier movie Spiderman - Into the Spider-Verse (currently on Netflix) you will be able to connect with this movie. The animation, visuals, sound effects and the characters are too good!!

In one of the verse we have an Indian Spiderman living in a city called Mumbhattan, who grew up with Uncle Bhim and aunt maya!!

Just when the storyline builds up the thrill and we start to wear the seatbelts, the lights in the theatre came on with a tab written on right most corner of the screen - "To be continued"!!!!
Everyone in the theatre thought it was some glitch and sat for almost a whole 30 seconds, and only when the credits started to roll did the realization crept in that we have to wait for some months more for the next / concluding part.

To sum it, it is a totally enjoyable movie, lots of action, emotional scenes, with some comedy thrown in, watching in the theatres is a full paisa vasool!!

You could include Shallows - where Blake Lively is hunted by a Shark. Quite frightening Shark movie. Actually it is not one of those low rate movies where animals are portrayed as the Villains.

Re: The English Movies Thread (No Spoilers Please)

Wrapped up AIR yesterday on Prime Video. Amazing movie!

Although I've known Air Jordans since my grad days (some of my NRI friends were hard core fans of NBA, Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant), I never knew it had such a background!

Got to know about Nike's crazy founder-CEO, the 'swoosh' logo, the rivalry between Adidas, Converse and Nike to rope in a rookie basketball player which would go on to become a sensation in the world, creating a brand around a sportsperson which pays the guy royalty for every pair of shoes sold across the globe to this day, Jordan's cool dad and his super-strict mum (could be dramatized for the movie but there's a segment towards the end of the movie where the real Jordan credits his mum for everything in his life).

Matt Damon was at his usual best. This speech is an incredible segment from the movie:

Re: The English Movies Thread (No Spoilers Please)

I recently saw The Unforgivable on Netflix. Starring Sandra Bullock, this movie is seriously worth a watch. The background music track is awesome and adds to the movie
Cheers
