The Tick (2016 – Season 1)

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

 

Verdict – 1/5

 

Pros –

 

 

1) A world of Superheroes and Supervillains – however, the plot of AEGIS is not exploited too much.

 

 

Cons –

 

 

1) Mediocre supporting cast.
2) If you’re making a comedy, go full-throttle like Future Man. Half-measures will give you sub-standard output.

Arthur: We’re taking Ramses to AEGIS.
Tick: Yeah.
Overkill: Those stapler-fondling bureaucrats? They’ll drown you in red tape.They’ll file your file under “where the fuck is that fucking file?”

Going in Style (2017)

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

 

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –

1) 3 stalwarts together having fun.

 

Cons –

1) Another one in the list of films with adventures of senior citizens.Similar to Last Vegas, Stand Up Guys, Grudge Match etc.
2) It’s up to the director if he wants to leave a mark or just make a comedy-caper.There are so many loop-holes in the heist plan that it’s best not to discuss it.

John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

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

 

Verdict – 4/5

 

Pros –

 

1) In the universe of Ethan Hunt, Jack Reacher, Jason Bourne, Jack Ryan, James Bond etc. the aura of John Wick prevails thanks to blade-sharp quotes and long shot action sequences without cut.
2) The movie in the second half gave enough easter-eggs for conspiracy theorists to consider John Wick to be a secret sequel to The Matrix. And why not – Sleek organisation like The Continental, Winston stopping everyone in the park as it was a simulation, and of course Morpheus.
3) 3 super gun-action sequences – Catacombs, Subway and Mirror-Room
4) Presence of Franco Nero

 

Cons –

 

N/A

 

Quote –

 

John Wick: Do you want a war or do you want to just give me a gun?
The Bowery King: Somebody please get this man a gun!
