CULT – 1

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) The epic finale of the 11-year-old journey culminating with the 22nd film. A journey started by Jon Favreau, led by Joss Whedon, and concluded by the Russo brothers. A rare grand emotional movie event of this generation.
2) The time travel plot enabled the screenwriters to add all the good & bad, major & minor characters from the franchise to make one final cameo in this grand finale.
3) Captain America lifting Mjolnir is got to be the most epic scene of this movie. A scene 4 years in the making.
4) A fulfilling climax for Steve Rogers.
5) Fun filled storyline with great comic-relief from Ant-Man and Thor “The Dude” Lebowski.
6) An epic finale needs an epic sacrifice. It had to be Tony Stark.

MUSIC – 0
CULT – 0

VERDICT – 3/5

 
PROS –
1) Pretentious and greedy art aficionados got themselves in a vicious trap of cursed paintings.

 
CONS –
1) Quite a lazy title for the movie where the Velvet Buzzsaw is of little significance that too for only one character.
2) Unnecessary sub-plots. Instead of working on the primary supernatural theme, the entire first hour is wasted in art exhibition politics.

Verdict – 0/5

 

 

Pros –
N/A

 

 

Cons –

1) It’s neither Devil’s Wears Prada nor As Good As It Gets.
2) Robert De Niro is the title character but mid-way the central story shifts to the relation of Anne Hathaway and Anders Holm which is preposterous for a moviegoer like me who is here only for Bobby.
3) Not a single memorable scene.Absolutely avoidable.
4) Anders Holm as Matt – bad casting for an important role.
5) The movie is full of predictable and stereotypical characters.

Pros –
1) The Business & Management monologues.
2) Jake Gyllenhaal as a quick learning “Bizarro Travis Bickle” with strong bargaining and business skills.
3) An ordinary story pulled up magnificently by great acting performance.
4) The dark side of crime journalism.

 

Cons –
1) Though Jake Gyllenhaal convincingly played the role of a psychopath freelancer which is undoubtedly one of his best performance, he overacted.
