Recent releases (3)

This blog post is a continuation of my earlier blog posts.

Hope you have seen all the 10 earlier 2011 movies i suggested:).Here are some more 2011 movies i enjoyed:).

One of the best movies of 2011 i have seen till now,warrior is one intense fight movie:). Here,the youngest son (Hardy) of an alcoholic former boxer (Nolte) returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament,a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother (Edgerton). This movie mainly works because of its superbly shot fight scenes:),which involve you so much,that you are constantly cheering for one of the brothers,as if you are watching a live match:). Both lead actors (Joel Edgerton and Tom Hardy) have given convincing performances.What unfortunately stops it from being an exceptional movie,is its predictable script.But still for its superb fight sequences and good direction,this is definitely a must watch:).

Genre:- Action, Drama.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has very good pace:).
My Rating:-

This girl version of The Hangover,may not be as funny,but is definitely a likeable movie:). Here, competition between the maid of honor and a bridesmaid, over who is the bride's best friend, threatens to affect the life of an out-of-work pastry chef.This movie may not constantly make you laugh out loud(except for one or two really funny scenes:D),but it ensures a constant smile,thanks mainly to its lead actress Kristen Wiig,who gives a superb and a very likeable performance as Annie Walker:). This movie is definitely a good watch mainly for Kristen Wiig:).

Genre:- Comedy.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).

Transformers 3: Dark Of the Moon
After watching this movie,i had only one reaction,"Oh my god!". Michael Bay movies may not be the best in terms of script,but he definitely makes sure the action sequences are worth your money:). In this third installment of the Transformers series,the Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets.This movie is full of action,especially the last 1 hour,which is full of so many jaw dropping action sequences,that at end of the movie,your eyes start hurting:). Shia Labeouf,does a good job as Sam,and the newcomer Rosie Huntington-Whiteley may not be that good in terms of acting skills,but she definitely is pleasant to watch:). For its out of the world action sequences and its superb pace,this is definitely a must watch:).

Genre:- Action, Sci-Fi.
Prerequisites:- You need to have seen at least the first transformers movie,if not both,to understand this one.
Bore Meter:- No chance of getting bored.Has Superb Pace:).
My Rating:-

Unknown is a good watchable mystery thriller.Here,a man awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife), believes him. With the help of a young woman, he sets out to prove who he is.This movie basically works due to its good pace and gripping suspense:). The script does falter here and there,but overall its an enjoyable movie:).

Genre:- Mystery, Thriller.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-

Thor is a good but a very different super hero movie:). Here,the powerful but arrogant warrior Thor is cast out of the fantastic realm of Asgard and sent to live amongst humans on Earth, where he soon becomes one of their finest defenders.This is quite an enjoyable movie:),thanks to its different story,good script,and good performances by Chris Hemsworth and Natalie Portman.But at the end of the day,it fails to provide as much entertainment as some other super hero movies like the spiderman series and batman series.But overall,its still an enjoyable watch:).

Genre:-  Action, Adventure, Fantasy.
Bore Meter:- Won't Get Bored.Has Good Pace:).

  1. Warrior and Unknown are very entertaining and well written movies. Thor is pure eye-candy packed with awesome action scenes but hasn't much to offer in terms of script. Transformers 3 is the best of the lot. Mind-blowing action sequences + Rosie Huntington = Count Me In! :) Bridesmaids doesn't belong here. Instead, MI-4 would've been a better option. Watch MI-4 and I'm sure you'll remove Bridesmaids in a jiffy. (I just hate that movie... 2 hours of my life I'm never getting back.. sorry just my opinion) :P
    Other than that top-notch selections. Keep 'em coming! ☺☻☺☻☺☻

  2. @ravi: yup,yet to watch MI4.MI series is one of my all time fav series,so definitely won't miss MI4:). Bridesmaids is a movie i liked,so had to post in my blog:).
