Movie Review: Hancock

Ever heard about a drunk super-hero, who however powerful and well-meaning, makes some mistake everytime and ends up receiving the wrath of public? And then tries to take vengeance from these ungrateful souls by creating troubles in their lives by his reckless behavior?? 😛

Enter John Hancock(Will Smith, who else) from Los Angeles!! The movie is about him, and his attempts to be accepted by the public (He officialy starts working for the cops as a saviour during crime) with the help of an earnest, kind-hearted PR executive Ray (Jason Bateman) whose life he once saves, and his quest to find the existence of his fellow-superheroes… which incidentally, happens to be Ray’s wife Mary (Charlize Theron), camouflaged as a normal earthly being.

After  brief sparks of attraction, and then savage fighting, Hancock goes on to discover that 2 superheroes cannot stay close to each other, since they were only meant to be born and to die in pairs, so grudgingly he has to leave Mary and go on to NewYork, to help people and be a real Super Hero!

The makers of this film have however, messed up with this last part, which is not at all convincing…

The acting is perfect(C’mon guys, it’s Will Smith after all!! 🙂 ) , the plot is new, the sequences are imaginative…if only, if only the ending were not wrapped up in great hurry!

Here’s one perfect example of a wonderful, funny, innovative and exciting movie, with an ending which doesn’t live up to the expectations!

Rating: Green, if you skip the last 1/2 an hour!

Movie Review: Jaane tu..Ya jaane na….

The quientessential question: So, when do you know it’s love??

Yup, that’s the main theme of the latest “fresh” movie on the block. Produced by Mr. Perfectionist Aammir Khan and starring Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza(Remember the peppy girl from “Tujhe Meri Kasam”, and the crybaby from Masti??), this movie tries to explore the avenue of a guy and a girl’s ability to be best friends without falling in love. Sounds passe? It is, but the presentation is not.

Some super cool comedy, fresh new young faces, fast-paced direction, and ofcourse sweetness at its best, this movie does manage to win your hearts. Just ignore the very stupid airport-reunion plot!! 😛

 

Rating: Almost Green! 🙂

Movie review : Love Story 2050

Is the time machine a new concept?

Is having red-hair a style of the future?

Even in 2050, will we have to hear pop songstresses in scanty clothes crooning to stupid songs?

In today’s age where Asimov sci-fiction is known by all, will the  idea of a colourful and shining globular time machine wherein we enter the year and place of the time travel destination click??

Rating : Red!

P.S. 1or 2 ideas about the life in future are good, so is the chemistry between Harman and Priyanka.

Should I venture into fiction??

For a long time, I have been at a loss of ideas for new blog posts… and more than ideas, it’s the expression that I am not able form.

So i thought, why not try my hand at fiction? Stories and topics that have interested me, but never happened to me…. I guess I should give it a try!!

 

And ofcourse, may be I shall be able to express myself in a better way, ‘coz what is fiction but a reflection of the reality?? 😉
