Movie Ratings and Reviews

Rush
Rush(2013)

Awesome movie. a must watch for everyone. direction was cut to perfect and all the actors played the characters brilliantly . i was thrilled and was sitting on the edge of my seat for the most part. too good.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

impeccable and awesome are the two words I will use to describe this film. loved it to the core.

Schindler's List

to showcase the authenticity of the subject , movie was shot completely in black and white frames. steven Spielberg left no stone unturned to the subject of the film. the cruelty of hitler's Nazi's and suffering of the jew's was felt. hats off to steven Spielberg.
not to mention the sterling performance by liam neeson. I could not hold back my tears during the climax scene. one of the best of this genre. kudous to the entire unit of this film.

Doubt
Doubt(2008)
½

sensitive topic very well handled by director. meryl streep was too good in the film. amy adams was good too. subject alone was gripping and kept me interested throughout.

Notting Hill
Notting Hill(1999)

Another sterling performance by my favorite star 'Julia Roberts' . what can I say. I am one in the millions who wants to meet this beautiful actress. the dream which I might never be able to fulfil. the only star that I want to meet. sometimes I wish that I had cancer or something so that ' make a wish foundation' could help me fulfill my this dream of meeting this wonderful person. never the less , notting hill is one of Julia Roberts best film. a must watch for every soul. :)

Erin Brockovich

Being a huge fan of Julia Roberts , I simply could not afford , not watching this film. she won Oscar for this and I always knew that it was a long coming. there is this some quality about her and the way she portrays her characters. I always fall in love with her. she is "the" actor for me. my all time favorite and I hope that she wins more Oscars as she is well deserving and very dedicated star.

The Fault In Our Stars

one of the most beautiful , romantic , emotional and realistic film that I've ever seen. I would not get into technical side of the film coz everything about it was brilliant , writing , directing , cinematography , background score etc.... everything was brilliant. shailene Woodley , hats off to her. she actually went under the skin of the character and played it beautifully. I smiled when she smiled and my eyes went moist when I saw her cry. beautiful film . a must watch for every soul.

A Few Good Men

one of the best film of this genre. demi moore looked scintillating and tom cruised delivered a fab performance. film was flawless. hard to argue with the script or
the characters. everything was well placed and believable.

The Wolf of Wall Street

Leonardo DiCaprio , Jonah hill and Margot Robbie cracked me every time. Leonardo DiCaprio has given numerous brilliant performances in his various films and this one is just another feather to his hat. also hats off to the magic man himself , director martin Scorsese.

Noah
Noah(2014)
½

I was anticipating a bit more from it. din live upto my expectation at all.

Maleficent
Maleficent(2014)

Probably Angelina jolie's best film and best performance ever. The film was a complete treat to watch.

Frozen
Frozen(2013)

gr8 film.... for long now , I've been waiting for some sensible and not so predictable Animated film and frozen just delivers that.... UP and The Incredibles are still my favourite 3D Animated film and now I can Proudly add 'FROZEN' to that list... loved the film , very well made.... Packed with some surprises... worth watching again and again.... and again... :)

Godzilla
Godzilla(2014)

I am glad that I survived it. probably the worst film of this genre.

Step Up: All In

I don't care who thinks what. I loved the film. it was treat to watch Briana Evigan and all the SYTYCD stars Twitch , Philip chbeeb , comfort fedoke and others not to mention moose... :)

Lone Survivor

one of my favourite American war film. saving private ryan and black hawk down was awesome and lone survivor is gr8 , loved it. love War based action films. Band of brothers is my favourite tv series. Respect to all those five men and every soldier who are fighting for good. :)

After the Dark

Fresh concept and a beautiful film. it keeps you interested till the very end. you are left wanting for more. I was thoroughly entertained. a perfect weekend film. :)

The Illusionist

Thoroughly entertained. The film was really very well written and beautifully directed. Though I feel that the motive was achieved way before crown prince leopold kills himself. He believed that the sophie is murdered so what was the point of dragging the situation till 'leopold' kills himself is not understood. still I would say that its a gr8 film. remarkable one. :)

The Armstrong Lie

I had a very little idea about the film. I never thought that it is going to be a Documentary I was expecting it to be a regular film. I usually don't like Documentary's but this is an exception... loved it to the core... I don't know about anyone else but I've tremendous respect for this man. every top cyclist dope or let me put it this way... every single athlete use performance enhancing product to edge out their respective competitors... Armstrong did the same only he made too many enemies on his way up...

Gravity
Gravity(2013)

its....................................................

Escape Plan
Escape Plan(2013)

Not Bad.... one can watch it when there is nothing on the TV and you absolutely want to watch something for timepass.... :)

Captain Phillips

Knowing 'tom hanks' is starring in the film I knew I want to watch it. he never disappoints with his film's. love him.

Closed Circuit

I expect a lot of action and drama in this particular genre which was surprisingly missing. director wanted to keep his audience interested but at the same time he wanted to keep it real and believable. climax did not do it for me either.

Hanna
Hanna(2011)

1hr and 51min of pure entertainment.

Thor
Thor(2011)

It was a good watch. Natalie portman looked very earthy and very beautiful in the film. when ever she was in the picture my eyes were on her. extra half star for her :) .

The Eagle
The Eagle(2011)

The start was good but in the middle, film lost the plot and climax was bad, very bad.

The Muppets
The Muppets(2011)

Watched it for Amy Adams, movie was okay. not my kind of a film.

The Hurricane

loved this film to pieces. great story, wonderful acting and very well directed.

Unknown
Unknown(2011)

It was fun and entertaining for first 1hr or so. climax could have been a little better but never the less. I enjoyed watching it.

War Horse
War Horse(2011)
½

only steven Spielberg could have done this. the film is very intriguing. a master peace. loved it to pieces.

Elysium
Elysium(2013)

I wanted to give this film an average rating of 2.5 stars but just for matt damon I am adding another half. matt damon is most definitely one of the greatest star of this era. hats off to him.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army (Hellboy 2)

A Great film. Anxiously waiting for the news of its third installment. after watching hellboy : the golden army I was so impressed with the makers that I know it for sure that if they come up with its third installment it would be HUGE.

Hellboy
Hellboy(2004)

a very good film. it had all the ingredient of a perfect entertaining film. action , drama, romance and humour.

Undisputed III: Redemption
½

Did i enjoy it?????? offcourse I did!!!!!!

Undisputed
Undisputed(2002)

when nothing is on TV one can watch it. its a complete timepass movie.

Never Back Down 2: The Beatdown

Disappointed... considering the original I was expecting it to be a grade higher or at-least a match to its previous installment.

Never Back Down
½

I love action genre, specially when its related to mix martial art. I was entertained and also I was motivated to hit the gym next day. all in all a good entertainer.

Man of Steel
Man of Steel(2013)

new and improved superman. The legend is born again. the story was slow and there was no edge of the sit action sequence in the film. after watching "the dark knight rises" the expectation automatically grows for 'DC' comics super hero and legend 'superman'.
never the less it was entertaining. superman was my superhero when I was a kid and he will remain so.

Superman Returns

marvel characters rules but nothing can beat superman. superman is not just a character but a legend. a delusion legend offcourse but still a legend. story was so so.... still I would give it a 3 star simply coz its a superman movie. :)

Monsters University
½

I can never afford to miss a "PIXAR" movie. story,humour and animation were simply mind boggling. loved it.

Moonrise Kingdom

The movie is very different. hats off to Anderson.

Lincoln
Lincoln(2012)

movie was flawless and I loved all the short stories Lincoln narrated. Daniel day lewis killed it. not even for a minute I felt that I was watching a film , it felt so real. awesome awesome awesome.

The Other Guys

ferrell takes the cake.... mark wahlberg was awesome too.... i'm a big fan of dwayne johnson and so it was a treat to see him in action.... all in all a good action-comedy film...

Death at a Funeral

its a fine sunday film... if you got nothing to do... and there is nothing on television... you can sit back and enjoy this film... its a black comedy and as the movie presses on you might find yourself laughing on one or two situations...

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2

little dissapointed with the climax of the film. i was expecting a full fledge action. which did happen but only in alexe's head and not for real. which left me aarrggghhhhh.... kid(mackenzie foy) was really cutee though. :)

Ocean's Thirteen

after watching the first two edition of this instalment there was no way that i could have missed this one. man i'm so glad that i did not miss it. a complete entertainment. :)

Ocean's Twelve

i can never forget this film... more or less cause of julia roberts... tess (julia roberts) pretends to be julia roberts. the way she tries to conduct herself as tess and trying to be herslef at the same time is crazy. the sweetest moment of her is when she actualy bump into julia roberts. no doubt that the movie is gr8 but 4stars are only for julia roberts.

Django Unchained

movie is about entertainment entertainment and entertainment. i was thouroughly entertained and so without a daubt in my mind im rating it 5star. loved it.
