The World’s End Movie Review:

This is the final installment of the “Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy”. The movie has Simon Pegg and Nick Frost again in the lead roles as with the previous two movies of the trilogy. The World’s End has got some great rating and critical reception, but I was hardly impressed by this film. The reason is same as I explained in my review of “Shaun of The Dead”.

For me the storyline was thin and being a comedy movie, The World’s End offered little to laugh. Talking about the technical aspects of this movie, I didn’t found anything wrong or bad anywhere. In fact, everything looks well worked upon. Simon Pegg and other actors have done a decent job. Rosamund Pike plays a cameo and looks effervescent. Pierce Brosnan’s cameo too looks cool. But despite all this, the film was a total disappointment.

The music and background score is fine, yes, just fine. The direction and cinematography are good. The special effects used are of quality and doesn’t give a bad feel to your eyes, the “android robots” are great, in fact, I loved them.

 

Storyline:

Simon Pegg plays Gary King who is on a mission to fulfill his dream of completing the “Golden Mile” (a bar tour involving 12 bars) in his hometown, Newton Haven with his friends. Something he planned 20 years ago and then missed by just a single bar, “The World’s End”.

Gary meets his four friends who were the part of his teenage gang 20 years ago. Initially, they all were circumspect about this madness, at this juncture of their lives and career. But, after so much insistence by Gary, the gang gets ready to give Golden Mile a shot. Upon arriving in Newton Haven they felt that it is no more their “pretty little happening” town. Some sort of strangeness is prevailing in the environment. The people are not friendly anymore and there’s hardly any known who recognizes them.

Soon the gang discovers an appalling reality that the town has been taken over by some aliens who are converting everyone into android robots. Now, will they be able to complete the Green Mile and reach the last bar, The World’s End this time? Or those robots will get the better of them? I am not going to reveal this and ruin your excitement if you are excited at all. So go ahead watch the movie yourself.

 

Rating & Verdict:

The film is a box office hit and liked by the majority of the audience as well as critics. The applauded the fact that The World’s End has been a perfect finale to the Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy. But, I could only give 6/10 to the film. It was bereft of laughter for the most part of it compared to the second installment, Hot Fuzz of this trilogy. Anyways, you can still watch it because you never know you may end up loving this film.

Hot Fuzz Movie Review:

Hot Fuzz is the most successful movie of the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy. And, I too agree to this fact. Compared to Shaun of The Dead and The World’s End, this film is way better in all the aspects. As a matter of fact, Hot Fuzz does have some great laughing stuff in it. Nick Frost is an integral part of this movie and is really funny to watch. Simon Pegg looks in better shape than the first installment of Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy.

Now talking about the storyline. Nicholas Angel is an “outstanding” police constable with 400% greater arrest rate than his peers. Because of his “unmatched skills” in arresting and defeating criminals, he is promoted to the post of sergeant.

But, he is shocked to learn that he no longer will be serving the city of London. Instead, he is transferred to a quiet and small village. Nicholas tries to show his disgust with the department’s decision. But, nobody listens to his plea.

Now in Sanford (An Award Winning Model Village), he notices a “crimeless life” with everyone enjoying their work and life. Here, he meets his new sidekick Danny Butterman (Nick Frosta constable) and the station chief Mr. Robert along with the rest of the police staff.

Soon Nicholas tries to find crime and criminals in the village as per his nature. The situation gets interesting when accidents start occurring in the village claiming lives. Everyone including the police chief is sure that these are just nasty accidents with no connection to each other. But, Nicholas is confident that these are “planned murders” and there is a large-scale conspiracy behind it.  Here starts the most interesting and captivating part of Hott Fuzz. Nicholas and Nick try to solve all the murders only to find out that the all the village elders are hatching a conspiracy to kill him.

As expected from a man with exceptional abilities, Nicholas exposes everyone and wins the heart of the whole department. But, how he was able to do this is something guys need to find out yourself. No more spoilers here…!

Hot Fuzz Movie Rating & Verdict:

I rated the film 8/10. Hot Fuzz has high-quality acting, good direction, and awesome background score. If you believe my words Hot Fuzz is one of those movies that are not to be missed by the movie lovers. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s deadly combo will make you laugh endlessly throughout the film. So, go ahead taste this flavor of ‘Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy’.

Santo contra el doctor Muerte Storyline

“Santo, the famous Mexican wrestling fighter, is an undercover INTERPOL agent whose mission is to discover the mysterious case of painting forgery throughout the Europe. While having amazing success in Madrid during his fights, he discovers that in Paris, previous and similar cases have been ongoing since many years.

So, he decides to go to the Louvre to have a talk with the curator who explains him those previous cases and the person suspected to have committed those infractions, sometimes in Moscow, sometimes while shipping the art pieces: the suspected criminal is a dangerous “doctor in art and chemistry” from Central Europe who uses, this time, a German art ‘restaurateur’ to accomplish his robberies.

This gang lives in a castle nearby Madrid where they’ve kidnapped beautiful women to use them as models. The models, trapped in a dungeon, are also used later for “scientific” purposes, killed and dissolved in acid. Santo and his partner, Paul, will have to go inside the castle, arrest the criminals and finish their job.

Santo contra el doctor Muerte Review

The film gives us a very nice approach of Mexican imagination in criminal matters and the ‘superheroes’ that are needed to solve the clues and enigmas. Santo contra el doctor Muerte is a nice movie which provides big entertainment from the beginning to the end, despite some script incongruities which make the story bigger than in what it should focus. The surreal and tacky scenes of a masked fighter going through classy European streets, talking seriously with art specialists and going around through airports and flying business cannot be missed!”

Doctor Strange Movie Review – Discovering the unexplored dimensions of this Multiverse…!

Country: U.S.A                                                       Language: English

Movie Review “Doctor Strange”-2016:

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange is a 2016 Hollywood film based on the famous comic character of 1960s-70s. The film has an impressive cast that includes:

Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange (The main protagonist)

Rachel McAdams as Dr. Christine Palmer

Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo (Dr. Strange’s Partner and Teacher)

Benedict Wong as Wong

Tilda Swinton as (The Ancient One, Sorcerer Supreme Protecting the earth from other world’s harms)

Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecilius (Main Villain former disciple of The Ancient One)

Michael Giacchino has given the music and Ben Davis is the cinematographer of Doctor Strange. The film deserves all the accolades for the use of latest technology. You will get the best experience of it watching at IMAX. Although, I watched in normal 3D and really enjoyed it. The editing is awesome and all the fighting and chasing sequences are just a treat to you eyes. The opening scene sets the tone for what you will get to see in the next two hours. It is one of the best scenes of the film.

The background score is just perfect what we expect in a superhero movie. One goes to see a fantasy film to get entertained and Doctor Strange offers plenty of it. With Benedict Cumberbatch there is a subtle humor in it too that makes us laugh promptly.

Coming to acting as you can expect with seasoned actors in the movie Doctor Strange has quality acting. The roles are very defined for each character. I loved Benedict and Tilda, the most among all. These two British actors have proven once again why they are as good as anyone in the industry. Rachel at 37, is still as cute and charming as she was a decade ago. Mads Mikkelsen too has done a good job, so as Chiwetel Ejiofor with his great dialogues. And last, but not the least Dr. Strange’s “Cloak of Levitation” adds more charm to his personality.

Storyline:

Dr. Stephen Strange is a world-famous Neurosurgeon, he is a good man who loves living a king size life, but is full of arrogance and proud. He meets an accident that makes his hand “kind of paralyzed”. Despite, all the treatments he is unable to recover fully. Then, he came to know about a man who recovered from a serious (incurable) spinal cord history. His searches for him and asks his secret.

This leads him to Kamar-Ta in Kathmandu, Nepal. There he meets Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) who leads him to Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One). Here, Doctor Strange discovers secrets and powers that he was unaware of or he never believed in. Being a bright student he learns quickly and more than he was supposed to. Al this makes him inevitably to become a part of an age-old war between Dormammu (The Dark Lord/Dark Dimension) and the saviors of earth.  With Kaecilius, in possession of something that can destroy earth Doctor Strange has little time to prevent it.

Will he save the Earth? Or His arrogance and rationality don’t allow him to do it? Watch it guys.. You will love it.

My Verdict & Rating:

There’s hardly anything bad or not so good about Doctor Strange, so it gets a 9/10 from me. It is a movie that all fantasy movie lovers of all age would love thoroughly. A must watch, if you haven’t watched it yet. A piece of advice, “don’t leave your seats till the end credits are finished”…!
