Releases 2012 (4)

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

Hope you have seen all the 15 earlier 2012 movies i suggested:). Here are some more 2012 movies i enjoyed:).

Skyfall, the 23rd James Bond movie and the 3rd Bond movie of Daniel Craig was easily one of the most anticipated movie of 2012.After Casino Royale(2006) which completely rebooted the bond series and set a new standard,followed by somewhat disappointing Quantum of Solace(2008),people had huge expectations from Skyfall.Skyfall is a good movie and doesn't disappoint entirely but falls flat when compared with the first reboot Casino Royale.In Skyfall, Bond's loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.What works for this movie are its performances,Daniel Craig is again fantastic:):) as James Bond and so is the villian Javier Bardem who plays Silva:).Direction by Sam Mendes is pretty good as well who makes sure you stay glued to your seat throughout and also shows the vulnerable side of Bond:).What lets it down is its plot,which doesn't have much to offer:(.Also audiences expecting a Bond movie will be disappointed,as you won't see much of Bond stuff you normally get to see in Bond films.Even the last half hour of the movie isn't entertaining enough,and audiences will wonder whether they are actually watching a bond film.Overall,Skyfall is a good movie,which is definitely worth a watch:).

Genre:- Action, Adventure,Thriller.
Director:- Sam Mendes.
Stars:- Daniel Craig, Judi Dench, Javier Bardem, Berenice Marlohe.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has very good pace:).
My Rating:-

Prometheus can be considered as an unofficial prequel to the 'Alien' series which started with 'Alien' in 1979.In Prometheus, a team of explorers discover a clue to the origins of mankind on Earth, leading them on a journey to the darkest corners of the universe. There, they fight a terrifying battle to save the future of the human race.Prometheus is a good movie:), which works mainly because of good direction by Ridley Scott,who keeps the audience tense throughout:).Also the cinematography and set design is really worth a mention:).The movie also manages to raise some important questions on human's creation,origin and mortality.But where the movie doesn't work is it fails to answer any of the queries it raises:(. Overall, Prometheus is a good movie:) worth a watch but falls flat when compared with the original Alien movies especially James Cameron's Aliens (1986).

Genre:- Sci-Fi, Thriller.
Director:- Ridley Scott.
Stars:- Naomi Rapace, Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron.
Bore Meter:- Won't get bored.Has good pace:).
My Rating:-

Men in Black 3
Men in Black 3,the third installment of the MIB series, is good fun entertaining movie:).Here, Agent J travels in time to MIB's early years in the 1960s, to stop an alien from assassinating his friend Agent K and changing history.Men in Black 3 is the perfect movie to watch when you are bored and just need a movie to pass time:). The movie has great pace and keeps you engaged throughout its length.Do watch this one when you feel bored:).

Genre:- Action, Comedy, Sci-Fi.
Director:- Barry Sonnenfeld.
Stars:- Will Smith, Josh Brolin, Tommy Lee Jones.
Bore Meter:- Has good pace:). Keeps you engaged throughout:).
My Rating:-

American Reunion
American Reunion is the eighth installment of the American Pie movie series:). In this movie, Jim, Michelle, Stifler, and their friends reunite in East Great Falls, Michigan for their high school reunion.American Reunion is a good standalone movie:) and you may like it even better if you are a fan of the American Pie movies:).Overall, American Reunion is a good fun comedy movie with some good laughs:).

Director:- Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg.
Stars:- Seann William Scott ,Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigon, Chris Klein, Thomas Ian Nicholas, Tara Reid,
Mena Suvari, Eddie Kaye Thomas.

My Rating:-

The Expendables 2
The Expendable 2,sequel to The Expendables is pure popcorn entertainment:). Here, Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat.The Expendables 2 may not be great in terms of story or script,but it sure has entertainment written all over it:). With stars like Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis all mouthing their own and each others punch lines added with lots and lots of gunfights and action,there is more than enough entertainment guaranteed:). Don't miss this one:).

Genre:- Action.
Director:-  Simon West.
Stars:- Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris.Nan Yu.
Bored:- No chance of getting bored:). Has great action:).
