CULT – 1

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) A legendarium kind of universe where human, ghost, witches, and werewolves co-exist. Huge potential if developed as a TV Series with a creative director at the helm.
2) 80s look.

 
CONS –
1) Plot with great potential but mediocre execution from the director Austin Vesely.

The Disaster Artist (2017)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –

 

1) The cast – full of talented actors.Especially Seth Rogen & Josh Hutcherson – small roles but you’ll crack every time you see them on screen.
2) Ed Wood – 2017 Version
3) The alley scene with Zac Efron

 

Cons –

 

1) The humor in the movie comes from the caricature what Tommy Wiseau is, however, there are very few scenes where the movie is actually funny.If a person watches this movie without any knowledge of The Room or Tommy Wiseau it’s gonna be very difficult for him to enjoy it.
2) Almost all funny scenes of the movie are already spoiled in the trailer.

ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

 

1) The chemistry between Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg – the only reason to watch the movie when you know the entire plot by just watching the trailer.

 

Cons –

 

1) Predictable plot – One time watch only
2) Hannibal Buress – miscast. Someone like Kenan Thompson would have rocked in this role

Verdict – 0/5

N/A

 

Cons –

2) A so-called comedy movie where you end up killing Hannibal Buress.
3) Dick jokes from stone-age
4) Priyanka Chopra as Victoria Leeds – a weak fancy annoying character with zero scope
5) For the director Seth Gordon, another reason to quit hollywood.

1) Treat of watching 3 stalwarts : De Niro, DeVito, Keitel.
