Kill Bill – Volume 1 Review

Revenge is never a straight line. It’s a forest, And like a forest it’s easy to lose your way… To get lost… To forget where you came in – Hattori Hanzo

Four years after the attack by Deadly Viper Assassination Squad on her wedding which left her husband and her unborn child dead, the former assassin called The Bride (Uma Thurman) wakes up from coma and begins a journey around the world to kill Bill, the head of Deadly Viper Assassination Squad to avenge the deaths of her loved ones.

Uma Thurman is awesome ! In my opinion The Bride is the greatest female characters in cinema along with Hermione Granger. She just embodies all energy around her. Uma Thurman really deserved an Academy nomination for her role. She could have been nominated instead of Diane Keaton, but she still wouldn’t have won anyway (Charlize Theron in Monster), so never mind.

Kill Bill is a revenge flick which is the ultimate definition of style. The killings, the mannerisms, the dialogues ! And the camera just captures it all. This is undoubtedly Tarantino’s most fast paced flick. It is just one entertaining scenario that leads to another entertaining scenario and so on. Many may say what is the difference between Kill Bill and the mindless action movies. Both the movies do have the protagonist take on a hundred others. See, the thing with Kill Bill is that we know The Bride’s gonna win, but we want to see how. The entertaining spectacle of gruesome violence is immersed with unforgettable dialogues. And the music is superb. And that anime sequence ! Thar scene in the anime sequence where O Ren Ishii assassinates a premier is a direct reference to Marvin’s death in Pulp Fiction.

Kill Bill – Volume 1 is a fast paced, entertaining, visual spectacle with a nerve-wracking performance by Uma Thurman and does leave you wanting for the second volume.

Rating : 9.4 / 10

Collateral Review

Featured image

            No, I did not kill him. The bullets and the the fall killed him- Vincent

Micheal Mann’s Collateral is about Max (Jaime Foxx) a cab-driver in L.A. who hopes to start his own limo service. After dropping of a lawyer Annie (Jada Pinkett Smith), he is hired for a night by Vincent (Tom Cruise) who is a hit man with a job to kill 5 people that night in L.A. who are connected to a federal case about a drug lord Felix (Javier Bardem). So begins the thrill ride, with Max thinking about a plan to escape from Vincent while indulging in a philosophical discussion with him and also trying to also save the lives of the people under Vincent’s radar. While Vincent continues to finish his targets, he is pursued by Detective Fanning (Mark Ruffalo) who will leave no stone unturned in his trail to catch Vincent.

The acting in this movie is fantastic. This is undoubtedly Jaime Foxx’s best performance up to date. Tom Cruise in this movie is fabulous. Jada Pinkett Smith is brilliant in this movie as is Mark Ruffalo.

This movie is one of the best thrillers ever. This movie is super engrossing. We feel that we are in that cab. The characters are so well-sketched. We forget these guys are acting. It actually feels, like Vincent say, that these two are joined by a cosmic connection. These two have amazing chemistry on the screen. They even develop a not-so-conventional friendship between especially when Vincent saves Max’s life. And the climax, is sort of The Fugitive, but in the end I was sort of sad for him (You will know who when you watch Collateral)

And L.A.! It is so beautiful. I just love it. The cinematography is brilliant and L.A. dazzles.

The movie has a brilliant script and and fantastic dialogues. You will sure quote them whenever the situation arises.

And this movie is built on conversations between Cruise and Foxx. The have so many philosophical discussions, they talk about their interests, childhood, jobs and everything else. The movie keeps the adrenaline pumping through out it and is sort of like Fury Road because our guy is in peril throughout the movie.

The score of this movie is super fun and just works awesomely with plot and Micheal Mann’s direction is very good. And this is a sort of 12 Angry Men with half of the scenes taking inside a cab. And also, it was so great to see Cruise as a villain and he rocks in this role. He is one of the broke yet super cool villain I have ever seen.

Collateral is a thrill ride from the start to the end and even though it is an action thriller, it has shades of drama smeared over it. With a brilliant plot, superb acting, great dialogues, dazzling cinematography, prodigious editing and direction and super cool dialogues, Collateral is an unique gem among thrillers.

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 .

Avengers : Age Of Ultron Review

Featured image

You get hurt, hurt them back. You get killed … walk it off – Captain America

Well, it’s here! Avengers 2 has released in India and I watched it as soon as possible. If you haven’t heard about it, then …….. ( no isolated place this time, you just suck if you haven’t heard about it )

So in this flick, Tony Stark and Bruce Banner create a peacekeeping program, but it goes wrong and instead it results in the creation of Ultron, who (obviously) wants to achieve global destruction. The movie focuses on the Avengers’  attempts to defeat Ultron and his army and also focuses on the tension between the Avengers.

Well, the acting was good as always. Everyone is awesome in their roles. They effortlessly blend into their role. The direction is average but is satisfying.

The visual effects are awesome and I am sure it will be Oscar nominated. Scenes such as Sokovia rising up in the air are visually stunning. The humour is prodigious. I found it as the best aspect of the movie. The scene in which Captain America throws his bike on the villain’s army in the beginning and in the last scene when Tony Stark exclaims that Thor has no respect for lawn-gardening left the audience in the cinema hall laughing so hard that I missed some of the dialogues.

Well, we got four new Avengers. Yay !!! I look forward to see Elizabeth Olsen in the next installments of Avengers. (Spoiler !!!)

The screenplay is average but will not disappoint Avengers’  fans.

Well, I have to admit at this point that I find superhero and sci-fi movies uninteresting and only Dark Knight trilogy, Gravity and Inception are the movies in this genres that I have loved.

The thing about this franchise is that every film is just made to cater Avengers’  fans. There is absolutely no room for improvement in this franchise and you can just expect the same type of movies every time. Look at DC !. They’ve got the Dark Knight trilogy, tv series like Flash and Gotham, which will please superhero fans as well as the general audience.

So, I think Avengers 2 fails to live up to its prequel and will please only the Avengers’  fans and also the folks who just want to see these brilliant actors on the screen. Also, I recommend a 2-D viewing of the flick for a better experience.

Rating: 6.6 /10
