Verdict – 0/5

 

 

Pros –
N/A

 

 

Cons –

1) It’s neither Devil’s Wears Prada nor As Good As It Gets.
2) Robert De Niro is the title character but mid-way the central story shifts to the relation of Anne Hathaway and Anders Holm which is preposterous for a moviegoer like me who is here only for Bobby.
3) Not a single memorable scene.Absolutely avoidable.
4) Anders Holm as Matt – bad casting for an important role.
5) The movie is full of predictable and stereotypical characters.

Verdict – 0/5

 

PROS –
1) The first 20 minutes.

 

CONS –
1) The movie began as “ The Wolf Of Wall Street” and by half-time, it appeared to be the 90s biopic of Viagra invention. It ended as a lame ass love story.

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –
1) “Dustopian” Future
2) Matt Damon Plot-Twist
3) Michael Caine Space Voice Over
4) Fifth Dimension Portrayal
5) Nolan’s obsession with “limbo”.Nolan is clearly exploring the “relativity of time” factor as he did it in Inception.
6) Planet Lazarus
7) Cliffhanger ending
8) Ellen Burstyn as Elderly Murph (reminds me of Vanessa Redgrave in Atonement).

 

Cons –
1) Often more like a documentary during the first half.
2) Concepts of wormhole, black-hole, relativity,5th Dimension etc. introduced and twisted as per director’s convenience to cover up plot-holes.
3) There is a certain resemblance to Shyamalan’s Universe.
4) Cooper’s Station looks like the space station from Elysium
5) Morse Code Communication
