The Trouble with Angels (1966) review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 6 October 2012 05:45 (A review of The Trouble with Angels (1966))

A story about of convent school. Two high-spirited young students at St. Francis Academy, a catholic boarding school for girls. The movie opens on the first day of school for a new batch of students at St. Francis Academy.

The school run by a very strong-willed Mother Superior (Rosalind Russell). She is used to having things her way, but she may have met her match in the headstrong and independent Mary Clancy (Hayley Mills) and her newfound friend, Rachel Devery (June Harding). The couple keep things hopping for the challenged Mother Superior and her staff of bewildered Sisters.

Hijacked review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 5 October 2012 05:27 (A review of Hijacked)

What could have be a great movie owing to substance in story, the movie Hijacked, is one of the worst production and acting I have ever seen.

Hijacked opens at a lavish Paris party thrown by one of the richest CEO's in the world, Bruce Lieb (Craig Fairbass). Lieb is trying to save face as he is being investigated by the SEC for shady business practices. What he plans is to get his plane hijacked and got all his close bussiness personnel kill in a conspiracy plot.

Perfect Sense review

Posted : 6 years, 11 months ago on 30 September 2012 01:25 (A review of Perfect Sense)

An amazing story entailing human race predicament, when human beings are hit by strange disease, depriving them of their natural senses. Two symbolic chracters in the movie, one is the epidemologist and the other one is the chef.

Slowly and gradually human beings start losing their crucuial senses, first to go was the olfactory sense, sense of smell, followed by the loss of taste. Than goes the hearing sense and in the end the sight. A tale which shows how the human race put up their brave face after each loss, anger was there but they learn to live with it. A beautiful BBC production.

6 Bullets review

Posted : 7 years ago on 14 September 2012 02:40 (A review of 6 Bullets)

6 Bullets starring Van Damme in film touching on a very sensitive issue of sex trafficking, however the movie is not upto the mark and is not even close enough to the previous movies of van Damme such as blood sport and universal solider. Van Damme looks old with his reflexes slowed down.

A MMA fighter, Andrew travels to Maldova for a comeback fight accompanied by his wife and 14 year old daughter. Even before the action begin for him, his daughter is kidnapped by a sex trade ring and he is forced to turn to a hired The Butcher (Jean Claude Van Damme) rest is the typical story line.

The Avengers (2012) review

Posted : 7 years ago on 2 September 2012 01:17 (A review of The Avengers (2012))

Marvel's The Avengers, arguably the most anticipated movie, a cinematic event, that broke multiple boxoffice records and is currently the third highest grossing movie of all time. Brief to say, "Marvel, marvels in THE AVENGERS."

The story brings together a team of Earth's Mightiest Heroes as they have to battle Loki and his mysterious army of aliens in order to protect earth and a cube known as the TESSERACT.

After being exiled from Asgard, the villainous demigod Loki (Tom Hiddleston) makes a bargain with a shadowy, malevolent entity. Loki must go to Earth, capture the fabled Tesseract (a cosmic cube of immense power), and use it to open a portal that will allow the alien Chitauri army to invade earth and make Loki its ruler. S.H.I.E.L.D. has the cube, but Loki quickly takes it, what follows than is the power pack, action of about 2 hours. An impressive feat of cinematic engineering, a work of prodigious skill and efficiency that carries out its cartoonish mission.

The Hunger Games (2012) review

Posted : 7 years ago on 2 September 2012 08:14 (A review of The Hunger Games (2012))

The Hunger Games is a novel by Suzanne Collins, first published on September 14, 2008. Gary Ross beautifully adapted the novel for the cinema.

Set in a future version of North America, in a nation known as Panem, established in North America after the destruction of the continent's civilization by an unknown apocalyptic event. The nation consists of the wealthy Capitol and twelve surrounding, poorer districts united under the Capitol's control.

As punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol, in which a 13th district was destroyed, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected by an annual lottery to participate in the Hunger Games, a selection of teenagers from the poorer neighbourhoods are forced to slaughter each other in the woods for the delectation of a TV audience.

The theme might by quite mean, however, quite a thrilling movie, like a relaity show, movie is recommended for the cine lovers.
