Another movie about Childhood, Friendship and the English summer. Two schoolboys set out to make out a movie inspired by Rambo:First Blood as a entry to the BBC’s Young Filmmaker’s contest. Set in the 1980′s, they surely dont have the budget but armed with a videocamera and the british locale and armed with imagination, they film a movie. There is more than meets the eye in this movie. There are plenty of Insights you only need to think a bit more.
Am sure that most of us would have wanted to make a movie like our favourite ones or atleast starred in one. maybe you should have a look at this movie because these boys did follow through with their dream. Childhood is when everything seemed possible.
[Will swings from a rope and drops into the water]
Lee Carter: [filming him] Yeah! Keep swimming to the other side!
Will: [floundering in the water] I can’t swim!
Lee Carter: …What d’you mean you can’t swim?
Lee Carter: [watches Will sink beneath the water] … Oh, shit!
This was my first 3D movie. 2009 saw the advent of the 3D genre and ever since then Hollywood has regularly churned out movies every month in 2010. Despicable me is an Animated film about a “has been” villain Gru and his ultimate plan to regain his former glory i.e., to steal the moon. You are also introduced to his minions, those cute yellow beings who remind you of Oompha Loompha’s.
Steve Carrell’s voice over for Gru is perfect and typical. The Script has enough of good gags and jokes to keep you laughing.
All in all it is a fun movie..not necesarrily a good 3D movie but its got what all good
3D movies need, A Heart. Love does make the world go round!
Dr. Nefario: Here’s the new weapon you ordered.
[Shoots minion with the fart gun]
Gru: No, no, no. I said DART gun.
Dr. Nefario: Oh yes. Cause I was wondering… under what circumstances would we use this?
P.S. I watched this at Inox Cinemas at Mantri Mall, Bangalore. I loved the Movie Experience on those couch chairs! Worth the Rs. 200 ticket.
Gist: Monsters, Inc. : “We Scare Because We Care”. Monsters generate their city’s power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, top scarer Sulley finds his world disrupted.
My thoughts: One of the classic animated movies of recent times. Most of you movie buffs might have watched it already, but if you haven’t please please add this into your collection. This is just a good entertaining movie. The monster world (Monstropolis) is so perfectly carved out. You will love each and every character there especially the child and “Michael” . It has a lovely story with unprthe edictable twists at the end, gripping pace and totally worth your time. Yes, there is a lesson of love to be learnt here as well. “Finding Nemo” was much better than this (for me), but yet, this movie is a must watch.
I love the opening credits as well as the closing. I will write a special post about movie credits in the near future. Now go and watch Monsters Inc.
My Rating: 8.5/10
Gist: A specially trained squad of guinea pigs is dispatched to stop a diabolical billionaire from taking over the world. They are asssisted by their other animal-friends who are also “specially trained”. Finally, when they’re almost there, there’s a new twist to the story…
My Thoughts: Hmmm, I was feeling bored. I thought I’d watch a movie which would make me laugh and relax. This does the same. Not so much with comedy… but with its cuteness and sweetness. Nice story… sometimes predictable (in this genre, everything is predictable). But what I really like about the movie is that everything is so real. The animation of these guinea pigs is damm good! Every expression is clearly caught on their face… and oh yeah… you’ll get to see Penelope Cruz in a way you’ve never seen before. Even here… she’s still HOT!
My Rating: 6.8/10
