"Everyone says I can't sing but they can't say I didn't sing", says Meryl Streep in the closing of the movie. The message is that we do not need to be the best to do what we love to do. Just do it and enjoy the ride. Obviously, she is not referring to herself as she again excels in the role of Floerence. Try making someone laugh by singing off key, it isn't as easy as one thinks.
This isn't epic filmmaking. The dramatic and climatic scene are almost none. Comedic moments aren't from clever dialogues but from physical and audio sources. It is fun and enjoyable and if you love Meryl like I do, then it is a must-see. Hugh Grant is added value.
After Alien (1978), one learned a lot about alien movies. You can actually see every scene coming. At some point, I burst out in laughter, much to the disgust look by the patrons around me. It gives me nothing much.
Logan is flesh and blood in the most humanly possible way. Its sincerity transpires through the screen. Its heartbeat is strongly felt. Not to be missed.
This is classic pop corn thriller because none of it is believable. You buy into it because Liam Neeson told you so. Julianne Moore? She is there just to collect the cheque and to add in a little star power. The entire cast is asked to act ambiguous, giving a sly smile, cast a disdain look so to keep us guessing who the real terrorist is. Well, that is cheating and make the movie looks cheeky.
I love its predecessor "Olympus has fallen" but that doesn't mean that I will naturally love this sequel too. With the novelty factor gone, everything is expected except that the explosion here is bigger and more devastating. The actors are all on default mode. Don't forget to bring your pop corn so you could be distracted and won't notice the monotony.
