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

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) A story with great potential if it was made with a better cast. This movie belongs to Judd Apatow and his “Frat Pack”.

CONS –
1) A half-hearted effort from Jonathan Levine

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) Yorgos Lanthimos completes his hat-trick of good movies. One of the most gifted contemporary director.
2) A sickly pushover queen finds herself in the middle of two over-ambitious women in early 18th century England.
3) The outstanding trinity of actresses.
4) A tremendous soundtrack for classical music connoisseurs.

Queen Anne: Are the people really angry about the land tax?
Duchess of Marlborough: They’ll be angrier when the French are sodomizing their wives and planting their fields with garlic.

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

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

VERDICT – 5/5

 

PROS –
1) 2 hrs of “High Octane” non-stop action that can give restless nights to Fast & Furious franchise. We wonder why George Miller was wasting time in Babe: Pig in the City (1998) and Happy Feet (2006) when he can deliver this.
2) Charlize Theron as Furiosa, another legendary hand-amputee joining the league of Luke Skywalker, Ash Williams, Jamie Lannister, Winter Soldier, etc.
3) Mind-blowing cinematography and chase sequences.
4) Hugh Keays-Byrne as Immortan Joe

 

CONS –
1) Many unanswered questions
