Movie Ratings and Reviews

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

So very frustrating and a tad long. None of the story points are smartly etched out. Batman s the best detective in the world, but this movie doesn't do justice to his intelligence, nor to Clarke Kent.

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

I have always wanted to see the movie. Now that I have, I can say that it is bloody brilliant. I was so charmed by the elegant photography and the background score. The cast is so damn good, that I can't say anything that would suffice.

Riddick
Riddick(2013)

There's nothing much in the movie to talk about. It is what it is.

Now You See Me
½

I was actually surprised by the movie. Jolly good watch!

Iron Man 3
Iron Man 3(2013)

There are no disappointments. It is as fun, smart , and entertaining as it ever could be. Don't miss the scenes after the credits. And I just can't wait for the rest of the movies in the marvel line up..

Skyfall
Skyfall(2012)

James Bond is back to being a classic english spy movie. I have never been a big fan of bond movies since Die another day. But this has got to be the best, probably a defining one of Daniel Craig. A simple english/scottish bond movie :) memorable..

Argo
Argo(2012)

For me, this is one of the best movies ever ! I am expecting a few many awards for this movie.. If it doesn't get it, we can say ' Argo **** yourself!

Cloud Atlas
Cloud Atlas(2012)

A complicated list of stories without a general timeline. Not easy to follow and it really is a loo..ong movie. The movie could have been much shorter and crisper. So many good actors but they hardly get enough time on the screen as one character.

Premium Rush

As the Rotten Tomatoes ' review points out, it is high octane action and it is enjoyable. And I am becoming a fan of Joseph Gordon Levitt !

Looper
Looper(2012)
½

It is an interesting movie, which has Bruce Willis for Action & Joseph Gordon-Levitt for some class acting :) ! The story also keeps you hooked, and the screenplay is good enough to keep you interested. But I certainly didn't enjoy it so much as Source Code or Inception, as I was not satisfied with the ending. But I guess I'll see it again just to find out why I didn't like the movie so much !!

Killing Them Softly

Not a great movie as such, but it is a breeze to watch. You will appreciate the movie if you listen closely to the references & dialogues about the american economy. The movie is also beautifully shot, and one for the fanboys of arthouse cinema.

Dark Shadows
Dark Shadows(2012)
½

The movie is Average. Johnny Depp does his best but he hasn't got much to work with. And it was totally undone by the awesome trailer of 'The Dark Knight Rises' and the 'The Hobbit'.. The movie just couldn't follow it up.

The Devil Wears Prada
½

'Worship Meryl Streep for Dummies' !

Mouse Hunt
Mouse Hunt(1997)
½

It is damn funny, who cares what others think about this movie.

Revolutionary Road

Shockingly real. Of all the characters in the movie, it is very striking that the most sensible person in the movie is the one who is eccentric.

Gone Baby Gone

One of the best movies of Casey Affleck.

Burn After Reading
½

Really thought provoking movie, and it is damn funny even now when I think about it.

Kung Fu Panda 2
½

The only 3D movie I have ever seen with awesome SFX, comparably close to Avatar.

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
½

The most disappointing thing in the movie was Graphics & 3D. No one expects a great story anyway.

The Artist
The Artist(2011)
½

It is a movie that is charming and beautiful. This clearly stands out among the noisy movies of today and makes you appreciate the performances & the musical score.
