Psycho-Pass: The Movie (Gekijouban Psycho-Pass)
4 hours ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The movie is only for those who have watched the series as it starts off with a belief you know the characters, there inter relation dynamics and how this world and its technology works. There are enough references from past for fan service while giving us a new setting and plot. For me it's been few years since I watched the show, forgotten many of the characters and the story, I felt like I missed out on elements when they get into past talks and such.

The movie is based in Cambodia, a trial capital city is built using the Sibyl System. The problem is local government having to fight rebels outside the capital area, the worse part the rebels seem to be trained by the runway enforcer Shinya Kogami. Enter Inspector Tsunemori, she goes in to resolve the past as well as the present. The story is great, lots of intrigue and suspense all throughout until the end.

The animation itself is amazing, better than the series. The artwork is gorgeous, especially the ones showing the temples of Siem Reap and the jungles of Cambodia. Also, the fight sequences are crazy awesome, the group of mercenaries are bad ass fighting machine.

I enjoyed the movie, although its more action focus than Sci-Fi story driven.

Bright
Bright (2017)
10 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Bright blends the dark fantasy genre with present-day cop brutality and social divide, not a movie for everyone. The movie tries to combines too many topics and does pull it off, only it becomes too weighted down with all the themes it captures. To lighten the heavy mood, humor is thrown in the way of buddy cop banters, only they are few and far between, I for one would have like more of it. Will Smith and Joel Edgerton got a great chemistry going, difficult to say who outshines whom. The action sequences are good, we got a kick-ass bad girl in Noomi Rapace, she and her gang could rip an army apart without a sweat. The world building makes for a sensible franchise to spin off, I am actually looking forward to future stories from this world.

It's a fun movie, mind you, it's not great or a laughter ride but does manage to give you enough laughs to make it enjoyable.

Tiger Zinda Hai
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Full-on entertainer, this is an action flick to the likes of XXX franchise, just instead of Van Diesel's Xander Cage, we have Salman Khan's Tiger. What it means is the fight sequences and machoism are larger than life, still it makes for a fun watch. The movie is filled with nationalism, humor, masala and plenty of action. Besides the superb fight sequences even the dialogues pack a punch, we have great one-liner and plenty of emotional fuelled sequences. This movie is all about Bhaigiri, a term iconic with Salaman, one is supposed to leave there brains at home before coming to watch the movie. It's just like any Hollywood Action thriller, bold and brash in showing a guy as a one-man army. Surprising part, I still enjoyed very much.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
25 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

I had read the book its adopted from ages ago, got to say it's no way near as hilarious as the original work. Having forgotten much of the story I was left baffled by the absurd misadventures, the occasional humor seemed forced. It's got a stellar cast but the story just didn't click for me on the big screen.
