The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

There is probably no one other than Peter Jackson who can do a movie on Middle Earth with such grandeur and mastery. The man loves the tales of Tolkien and that shows in every frame of the movie.
There is definitely over-indulgence here, otherwise how can you convert such a small novel into THREE big movies, the first 30-40 minutes are slow to say the least but once the adventure begins, then there is no stopping for the characters and for us from getting on into this fabulous ride of orgs, monsters, trees, elves, giant-eagles and of course, the dragon.
It is very difficult to register or notice any sort of acting skills in a movie which is so heavily (and brilliantly) laden with visual effects, but still besides the fantastic works of the art and set decorators, make up and costume departments, we do somewhere find a soul in these characters, especially Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins is a quirky, grounded character whom Freeman makes easy to relate to, he is a good actor and he makes Bilbo a part of his own. Ian McKellen is as always, fabulous as Gandalf and the actors playing the 13 dwarfs are also fun to watch.
It may not be Lord of the Rings, but The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is definitely a journey worth taken and is the last stop for those who have missed Middle Earth for a long time.

Amour
Amour (2012)

Probably the most honest, raw and the real masterful work by a director from 2012, Amour is that rare movie which hits you slowly and gradually and when its over, you find yourself numb and enriched at the same time.
A brilliant script performed so emotionally by the outstanding actors and so masterfully directed by Michael Haneke, Amour is a real gem which will stay with you in your minds long after the credits have rolled.

Django Unchained

Always fun to watch a Tarantino movie.
Not his best, but still so much fun.

Silver Linings Playbook
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A small and a very energetic slice-of-life movie.

The Invisible Woman
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Ralph Fiennes, in his second directorial venture, designs this delicate drama with poetic exquisite and a literary fascination. The secret love affair which went on for nearly thirteen years between the great Charles Dickens and Nelly Turner, is the centre point of the story of "The Invisible Woman".
Its languish pace probably could be little distracting for some, but the masterful craft with which Fiennes directs each and every frame and every one of his actors, is in itself the primary reason to watch this movie.
For me, Felicity Jones gives a standout performance as the titular character and Fiennes himself brings a lot of gravitas to the role of Dickens.
Its one of those rare movies which brings a lot of depth and shape to your character and even adds a little meaning to your life, during and after you have watched it. Resoundly deep and quietly poetic, The Invisible Woman, is indeed a treat for all the fans of period drama and the richness the genre brings with itself.
