Kubo and the Two Strings
33 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Kubo and the Two Strings is an incredible piece of beautiful animation that boasts not only of great visuals but also delivers on story telling. The only letdown was in the uneven pacing.

Doctor Strange
35 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Just when I thought that the Marvel Cinematic Universe had run out of ideas to outdo its previously strong performances, I'm proven wrong again. And, deliciously so. Dr Strange is thoroughly engrossing, entertaining, esoteric, elegant and explosive. Benedict Cumberbatch is to Dr Strange what Robert Downey Jr is to Tony Stark - arrogant, insecure and flawed. Similar, yet different. Benedict Cumberbatch brings his British wit, and imbues a vulnerability and intelligence to Dr Strange. I enjoyed how the film slowed down to give due emphasis to character development, even for the lesser characters of the cast, like Chiwetel's Mordo, Rachel McAdam's Christine and Benedict Wong's Wong, just to name a few. The stunning visuals and CGI work remind us as to what is really important in the creation of powerful fantasy blockbusters - that the CGI support the script, and not the other way around. The film is almost flawless in its delivery - excellent casting, brilliant direction, a good script, with nice humorous punches, and precise editing. Not forgetting that MCU runs with powerful Disney production leadership to string all the various parts together. No mean feat.

A MUST WATCH. I shall not share any spoilers, except to remind you to sit through the entire credits. There are two -- stay right to the end. Watch out for the PSA too. I've watched it twice already. And would watch it again.

The Accountant

½

The Accountant is a thriller, and is surprisingly engrossing, thanks to Ben Affleck's strong performance as an autistic savant, equally clever with numbers and guns. Ben should stick to such films that bring out the best in his acting chops.

Not Tom Hanks best work, but Inferno was surprisingly entertaining. I couldn't help comparing Tom Hanks's character with Indiana Jones!!
