If you have not already know, the Star Trek 3 project is already in the pipeline and recently, it is official that Justin Lin (from the Fast And Furious franchise fame) will take the helm of directorship. I like the Fast And Furious movies and am happy with the news.
 
I think it will be tough to tops the success brought by J.J. Abrams in the new Star Trek franchise but I hope Justin bringing in new perspective to the already popular franchise.

Jurassic World - First Full Trailer (Jun 2015)


Jurassic WorldThe full trailer of Jurassic World came earlier than expected!
 
After watching the trailer, it doesn't really give me a wow effect, I guess it is due to the tone of the trailer and didn't show much of the "action" yet. One thing worth noticing is the closing scene of the trailer whereby we might see some good dinosaurs vs bad ones in the movie!
 
Now, check out the trailer below and let us know your view :
 
 
Jurassic World will be released in big screen on 12th June 2015.

Guest Review - The Hunger Games Mockingjay (Part 1)


The Hunger Games - Mockingjay Part 1My trustworthy movie reviewer friend, Ben is back to review the latest blockbuster - The Hunger Games Mockingjay (Part 1). Even though the box office in US is not as impressive as its predecessor but it is enough to be the highest opening of the year.
 
I think this is the longest movie review that he has written and can tell that he likes J Law a lot (really a lot!). Without further ado, let's check out what is his review below :
 
NOTE : MINOR SPOILER ALERT! PROCEED WITH CARE... 

2 words – Jennifer Lawrence. The single person that elevated the entire Hunger Game movie quadrilogy, throughout MockingJay, I am thinking how lucky the studio was to sign her up for the first movie. She has the rare attributes of extremely well-liked by the audiences and coupled with her capable ability in acting. She brought out the Katniss Everdeen character from the series and made it into one that the audiences can relate to, which is very important for the first part of the finale.

Guest Review - Big Hero 6 (Nov 2014)

Big Hero 6
My friend, Ben is back with his movie review. Today, he is reviewing the cutest and hottest movie at the moment, Big Hero 6.

This comic adaptation was directed by Don Hall and Chris Williams. It has all the required element to be a successful and entertaining animation (last year, we have the animation of the year, Frozen and this year, we have Big Hero 6). 

Now, check out how will Ben rates the movie below..

BH6 (Big Hero 6) is the first collaboration after Disney acquired Marvel comics, it was both a risky but otherwise no choice decision as most of the Marvel’s characters were either owned by other studios (think Spider-man and the entire X-men universe) and the remaining ones are currently under live-action movie productions by Marvel Studios. Even the obscure ones like Guardians of the Galaxy, which had just finished its commercially successful run, and the Inhumans, stated for future release, are taken, there is little choice of what Disney can dip their hands into without diluting the current Marvel movies universe or risk a law suit from the other studios.

Hence BH6 was chosen which even the usual comic’s readers will find the team unheard of. It is almost like scraping the barrels. Even so, 2 of the team’s iconic members Silver Samurai and Sunspot had to be dropped from the roaster due to their affiliations to the X-Men universe, which belongs to Fox studio. But if anyone that can make this team work on the big screen, it will be the studio that popularized singing snow princess and her sister.

Storyline is the weakest link here; the flow was utterly predictable with the so-called twist expected miles ahead. (in fact during the last battle scene in the alternative universe, a kid was heard in the theatre saying “Baymax will be back later” See, you cannot even fool a kid nowdays) Despite the light hearted and bright coloured nature of the movie, BH6 tells of a bittersweet tale of how to accept the loss of a loved one. Both the protagonist and antagonist had to deal with passing of a family member and certain aspect both dealt with it similarly, turning into vengeance at one point. However glaring plot holes existed such as why would the villain picked such a manner to acquire Hiro’s microbot? He already had the access to Hiro’s research and could easily get a sample to mass produce.

Technically BH6 is beautiful, the characters’ animation and background rendering were simply superb. For once there are no annoying sidekicks or stereotyping characters that exist merely for comedic reliefs. Each character was likeable on his or her own, and finally we are spared of ill-conceived rushed romantic situations among the characters.

Of course, the star of the show is the loveable Baymax. Once again Disney has found a winning figure that’s both heartwarming and humorous at the same time. Am sure Baymax mascot will appear in Disneyland soon.

Overall, it is a decent Disney effort, not as epic as Toy Story, not as original as Wreck-It-Ralph, I will give it a 3 out of 5 stars and add another star just for the sake of Baymax. Do stay for the after credit scene which the creator uphold his tradition to appear in Marvel movies.

Have you seen Bay Max yet? What is your review? 

Cheers!

InsurgentAfter Divergent, what's next is Insurgent (coming in 2015) and lastly Allegiant (part 1 in 2016 and Part 2 in 2017).
