                  I really am ruggedly handsome, aren’t I ? – Richard Castle

ABC’s Castle is about a mystery writer called Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) who has just killed of his bestselling series’  lead character Derrick Storm and is looking for inspiration. And it comes to him in the form of Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) who is in charge of a case in which Castle’s expertise has been sought because it concerns a serial killer who modus operandi is similar to that of the murders in Castle’s novels. And thus begins, the crime solving partnership of Kate Beckett and Richard Castle which gradually culminates into a romantic relationship. The sitcom is also about Beckett’s mother’s murder investigation which forms the plot of various episodes in these seasons.

It is with great joy that I write this review. Castle is 2nd on my list of the greatest sitcoms of all time. (Sherlock is the 1st) This sitcom is very very personal to me. I actually got into watching sitcoms by watching ‘The Simpsons’. The Simpsons had a slot time of 3:30-4:00 pm after which I went to my tutions. But, it was later shifted to 4:00-4:30 pm slot. So, I had nothing to watch and one day, I decided to watch a episode of every other show on other channels and to my great luck, the first one I saw was Castle and I loved it.

I began watching this Show from season 3 after which it became my daily cocaine. It became part of daily routine to watch Castle for mystery and comedy are two genres that I love and Castle is the most wittiest and suspenseful show I have ever seen.

The acting is brilliant. Rick Castle, along with Holmes, is the coolest TV character of all time. A humorous genius, what else do we need ?!!!! And here comes Kate Beckett, the super-cool dashing cop genius who just proves every time that none of her male counterparts are a match to her. The supporting characters like Castle’s daughter Alexis and his mother Martha, the detectives Esposito and Ryan, the chief Capt.Montgomery and Capt.Victoria Gates and the forensics expert Lanie, they are AWESOME

The series is so well written and directed. The episodes of Beckett’s mom’s murder are so sophisticated and the truth of it just blew me away. The series did a very wise move of spreading it across all the seasons that by the time the revelation came, the audience was blown away because of the tension built over all the seasons like the sitcom ‘The Fugitive’. Another example of an amaze balls script was that of the Linchpin conspiracy episodes which began as an simple investigation but leaded to a worldwide conspiracy which could lead to the most catastrophic event the world has witnessed. It was better than most of the conspiracy theory movies that I have watched. I was speechless after watching those two episodes and they just cemented my love for this series.

The chemistry between Stana and Nathan is so awesome that if you watch this sitcom from season 1 episode wise, from the end of season 2 you would be like ‘Are they getting together in this one?’ at the beginning of every episode. And the tension built up and up every season until their relationship started in the most perfect way ever and I was cheering that whole scene.

And one thing that I find very under appreciated about this sitcom is its score. It is so quirky and so romantic and so tragic when its needs to. Here’s a link to one of the score by the genius composer of this series Robert Duncan from the episode ‘Always’ and judge for yourselves https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFAlpdpNvzo

On a more personal note, I connected with this series. And the time I began watching it, I was very lonely. It felt like I had no one to talk to and this series actually rescued me from that loneliness. The characters became my family and I became happy when they became happy and I was sad when they were sad. I actually posted pictures of this series’  characters in a notebook and I talked to them, and I told them everything and that made me feel better. I attribute my love for movies and sitcoms to Castle because after watching Castle did I realize that I had found my new passion.

This series is one hell of a watch, and has everything-awesome performances, brilliant screenplay, prodigious direction, stupendous editing and a breathtaking score. It is a must watch and you would be doing a crime to yourself if you miss this sitcom.

Rating: 9.8/10

Mad Max-Fury Road Review

Featured image

If I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die historic on the Fury Road – Nux

George Miller’s post-apocalyptic Mad Max-Fury Road is about a survivor of the apocalypse called Max who gets caught up in the chase between Immortal Joe, a cult leader and Furiosa (Charlize Theron) who has abducted the five wives of Joe to escort them to safety to the Green Place, a place Furiosa remembers from her childhood.

The acting is very good. The actors flaunt their acting skills in the very few scenes in which they have to act.

Now, to the movie 🙂 .This movie is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best, action movie I have ever seen. This is after a long time that I am seeing an awesome action movie. This is a thrill chase from the first to the last. Miller flaunts the scale in which the movie has been shot using timely bigger frame scenes. His direction of action is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. This movie is wayyyyy cool and eccentric characters just add to the appeal of the movie, especially the guy who plays a guitar on top of a truck which emits fire.

And the visual effects !!!!!!! From all the movies that I have seen this year, this movie is the top contender to win the Best Visual Effects Oscar the next year. I watched this movie in 3-D, and I beg you to watch this flick in IMAX 3-D if you can. The movie doesn’t use that shitty shaking camera effect and it real makes you worry about the hero,i.e the movie brings about a feeling of vulnerability for its leads.

The humor is just awesome. I laughed really good during the movie. The screenplay is surprisingly good and is befitting to this movie. Oh God, I loved it !!!! I got an awesome action movie, bitches !!!

The action is choreographed superbly like Abraham Lincoln-Vampire Hunter and is a treat to watch. Please, watch this movie. Remember, this recommendation is coming from a guy who hates action movies. I loved it and I am sure to watch the previous installments of the Mad Max series which I haven’t watched yet. And this is to people who haven’t watched the previous Mad Max movies- Don’t worry. You won’t have any trouble while watching this movie and you will totally get it.

You know that adrenalin pump that you get while playing Subway Surfers ? That’s the feeling throughout the movie.

Mad Max-Fury Road lives up to its name and is one hell of a mad craziness and is must watch .
