Office Christmas Party (2016)

STORY – 1

MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Good fun movie with a decent screenplay.
2) “Anywair” sounds very interesting.
3) Jillian Bell as Trina – this terribly under-rated actress needs a full-length movie in the lead role. I’d even love to watch a spin-off movie featuring Trina as the central character.
4) Fortune Feimster as Lonny, the Uber Driver.

 

 

CONS –
N/A

Airline Concierge: I’m sorry, ma’am. All flights are grounded until the snow clears. There’s nothing more I can do.
Carol Vanstone: Well, refer me to someone who can do something!
Airline Concierge: That would be God, ma’am.
Carol Vanstone: Oh. Her.

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

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

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –
1) That post-credit scene where Pym, Hope, and Janet disintegrate.
2) Return of the Original Wasp.
3) Randall Park as Jimmy Woo proved a better comic relief than Michael Peña as Luis.

 

Cons –
1) The absence of a co-Avenger.Not a single Avenger played a supporting role neither a cameo. Weirdly, the Ant-Man universe is cut-off from the main Avenger universe.
2) Ava Starr / Ghost subplot – unnecessary and absurd sub-plot.

The Interview (2014)

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

Verdict – 2/5

 

Pros –
1) The “Sony-hack-event” gives this movie a reputation/notoriety of almost starting a nuclear war and thus already a cult status.
2) Eminem Cameo.
3) Few establishing shots.

 

Cons –
1) Great concept but badly executed.
2) Latest in the streak of bad movies for Seth Rogen.
3) A stoner angle would have been better.
