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

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) As funny as the prequel. A new plot for the sequel instead of recycling the same story.
2) Jennifer Aniston as Dr. Julia is as impressive as before. Kevin Spacey prison visits were hilarious.
3) The wobbling trio of Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis, and Charlie Day ensures the audiences will get their money’s worth.
4) A good supporting cast including Christoph Waltz & Jonathan Banks. Chris Pine as Rex surprises in his comedic role. Jamie Foxx as MF Jones returns for one hell of a police car chase

 

CONS –
N/A

Horrible Bosses (2011)

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

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) Seth Gordon’s laugh-riot about three employees trying to murder their respective bosses with the help of a video bootlegger called “MF” Jones. That’s how you make a good black-comedy movie.
2) Jennifer Aniston as Dr. Julia. She still keeps on surprising the audiences with her various shades.
3) Great supporting cast completed with Kevin Spacey & Colin Farrell.
4) Even in the presence of Jason Sudeikis & Jason Bateman, Charlie Day as Dale clearly stole the show.
5) End credits: How You Like Me Now? (The Heavy song)

 
CONS –
N/A

Baby Driver (2017)

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

Verdict – 3/5

 

Pros –

 

1) The character of a music-obsessed driven criminal.One scene in particular where he can’t get the stolen car started mid-way a police chase without getting the right song from radio-station.
2) Jamie Foxx as Bats – one step away from Anton Chigurh.
3) There are few Tarantino-esque moments of intense uncertainty and anticipation
4) Gunsmiths massacre scene where gunshots sync with music.

 

Cons –

 

1) 4 Years wait for an Edgar Wright movie and not worth it. Frustrating to see a director with huge potential wasting his talent on such story. While James Cameron is already wasting rest of his life in Avatar sequels it’s sad to see Edgar Wright do something similar.
2) Ansel Elgort as Baby … Why ?
3) The climax … Dream or reality ?
