Chef, 2014: Jon, the IronMan once again proved his acting and directing talent by cooking Fresh and yummy Cuban Sandwich filled with the tale of ‘do-what-you-love-to-do’. Well cooked screenplay, neatly chopped edit and stunningly presented DOP makes the movie rich, inspiring and entertaining. And yes, it’s garnished with Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson! PS: Don’t miss it If you are working on creative things under a stupid boss
X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) : Well made, well directed, predictable movie. The effects and some sub stories are awesome enough to make it a great movie experience. The movie lacks proper villains and second half is a bit loose and slow comparing to initial pace. Still, its a great watch, specially when you see Peter Dinklage. Hail GoT!
Kochadaiiyaan, 2014 : Yes, It’s animation and it’s not up to the mark. But the movie means a lot for the huge effort and hard work. Brilliant BGM and Music by A.R. Rahman, mass capturing story with some stylish dialogs by K.S. Ravi Kumar and presence of Rajnikanth in style and sound makes the movie a great watch. While the total rendered output is just above average some shots and expression capture and the flow of scenes needs to be appreciated. Big claps to Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin for taking this huge risk of making a complete MC3D when they had enough budget to make it in real with Superimposition and other technologies.
A story with soul, a romance with heart and emotions that are true. Though the movie is futuristic, a has elements of science fiction and romance – it is a movie that talks about actual emotions of human – being loved, being lonely and being true to emotions. Big claps and applause to Spike Jonze, the writer director for the idea, concept, execution and the soul it had. This is a movie I expected from the maker of Being John Malkovich.
Joaquin Phoenix did an extra ordinary, brilliant performance (it is strange that he is not nominated for Oscar) holding the audience to the movie just with his very controlled and stunning acting. The other faces that comes in between like Amy Adams and Rooney Mara, Olivia Wilde and Portia Doubleday looked stunning and did their part neatly. Big hugs to Scarlett Johansson for her voice and modulation that made Samatha something more that existing.
With a clean, stunning, breath holding cinematography and color tone the movie is a brilliant watch that you became part of the movie, and for some time you feel the movie as part of you. It’s a pure magic. Thank you Spike Jonze.
