I'm quite picky with movies and rarely ever rate 5 stars but this movie is now one of my favorites.I thought that the deep love of Gatsby for daisy, to the point of obsession, was extremely relatable especially for those that have experienced a love that moves heaven and earth.the only detail I would have changed would have been having music from that era in the film rather than modern music.

Better Than The Original?

The game is on after President Snow takes advise from the game maker to reenlist past winners for the 75th anniversary game. Of course everyone feels ripped off that they are not able to bask in their glory but the movie takes off right from the beginning. Its not as intense and there is not as much action as the first one but this is definitely a good flick. I actually would have given this one 5 starts if it were not for such a disappointing ending. It was not as interesting to see who lives and who doesn't make it though. We were not really introduced to the characters well enough to really care. This is a good series though. I am really looking forward to the next and final one.

watched the trailer and that's all i needed to see. they don't show you all the trash floating around up there or even a distant satellite cruising by. great views of earth and space and again the earth from a distance you they don't show you how diseased the earth has become from the human population and industrial impact that is killing our earth. earth will only tolerated so much until it decides to get rid of us and alter our perfect puny lives forever and for what, to have our perfect little communities where our houses are ten feet apart from each other. shit is ridiculous. population is out of control and i don't see it slowing down anytime soon till its to late.

A visual treat in the name of the legacy

A Review

A much awaited follow up of the epic 300 (2007) is finally here. When I first heard about this movie, I was wondering if it was going to be a sequel or a prequel. Well, it's actually both.Taking the legacy of Greeks and Spartans upfront, this movie is sheer treat. Surprisingly great in story, jaw dropping slo-mo action sequences and nonetheless a pin point scripted humor. Hell lot of bloodshed, more six packs, more action. When I went out of the theater my heart was pouring from the jolt of pure movie entertainment. This movies has got everything to make your weekend better.
One of the best things about 300 was Gerard Butler and his larger than life performance as Leonidas. Initially, they planned for him to come back, but he didn't want to reprise his role. He is sorely missed here and the void left by his absence is never really filled although, Eva Green comes awfully close. She by far has the most interesting character and easily gives the best performance, but despite a tragic back story, she's a villain, which makes it hard to sympathize with her character. Instead, we get Stapleton to take Butler's place and while his performance is fine, his character Themistocles is no Leonidas. The way Xerxes became a God King and the way he acted on a vengeance to destroy Greece with Athens and Sparta, this was indeed a challenge to direct and produce both. Everyone did justice to their roles till the core.
The best feature of this movie is the screen play. Throttling action sequences with hell lot of brutality and bloodshed. They delivered enough punches to hold the interest of viewer till the end. A smartly plotted story which took a turn around from the past and merged into the existing one.. One thing than can be said about this film is that it's never boring. It moves at a nice pace from battle to battle, but those looking for the same experience the first film gave them will be disappointed.
The sound, the action sequences really do pop out! And made this movie one hell of a ride! For me background scoring took the entire movie on track and gave another level of visual treat. All summed up and 300: Rise of an Empire accomplishes much more than any movie of its kind could aspire to.

An Escapist's dream, a journey that must be taken...

7yfjcet3folgwztke87cplrjws9

Journeys. A traveller's monotony can become the adventurer's thrill and an escapist's dream. With his unique style of poetry in film-making, Imtiaz Ali has dealt with journeys of finding love and reminiscing in 'Jab We Met' and with a man's journey through his passion in 'Rockstar', he asserted his craft in dealing with human emotions through life's journeys. This time around, with less stardom, he focuses on a simple yet deeply emotional journey of a girl who is taken away from society only to be exposed to a new found freedom in aimless travel. Imtiaz Ali truly rises with his typical form of story-telling to take you on a soulful journey but this ride may not be for most of this country's audience that would shower their wealth onto Chennai Express and Dhoom3.

The daughter of an influential industrialist in North India longs for fresh air and freedom from the binds of society and her upcoming marriage. Veera's (Alia Bhatt) wish isn't quite granted with a sudden abduction and her limited exposure to the real world leaves her in awe of the surroundings to which the kidnappers expose her as they travel from one town to the next, hiding from authorities. Soon enough, she finds comfort in making the truck her new home and solace in being on the Highway.
Her stubbornness gets the better of her kidnappers who give her space as long as she is restricted to their reach. Their relationship grows with their travels and later on, she becomes an incorrigible persona of freedom whom one grows to adore. 'Highway' is about her escape from the confines of a society that abused her, haunted her memories, took away her innocence and bound her in the shackles of a wealthy, protected lifestyle. The beauty is in the journey of her escape. Apart from the spectacular locations in remote India, including breath-taking views of the Himachal region, the meaning is conveyed through AR Rehman's soulful music and the adroitly directed tender scenes of self-realization. Sometimes, the silence in those times is deeper than even the most meaningful dialogues.
Veera does find her destination and the kidnapper is no longer an oppressor but a companion in her dream. Is this really where she belongs or will society put the shackles back on her feet?

The dilemma of the kidnappers who bit off more than they could chew is humorous while Randeep Hooda's confidence makes him unpredictable. His calm yet sinister character is quite a contrast to his victim who enjoys her life as such. He realizes the folly in their abduction plan but is incessantly on the run which gives Veera more time to enjoy her liberty while they outrun the police. Hooda is comfortably natural playing Mahabir with fewer words but louder actions and Imtiaz Ali surely brought out his best.
Highway is Veera's journey and Alia Bhatt's rise as an actress. With a laudable performance, she convinces the audience that with the right story, script and direction, she has the potential to impress. Imtiaz's keen ability to extract the best from his actors has never had such success and the last half hour of the film that is dominated by Alia is his testament.
The supporting cast manages to remain as natural as their characters but there is another element of the film which, by itself is justified to be a pretty important one.
AR Rahman's melodies convey the words behind the silent expressions of the actors. There are powerful moments in such finely crafted scenes. Notice Alia's silent gaze outside the truck's rear, her blank stare while sitting on the desert dune, her inability to express the joy in living her dream on the banks of a river and Hooda's laughter when Veera just doesn't let go of him and he accepts defeat to the escapist's dream.
Pathaka Guddi with the Nooran Sisters signifies freedom, wildness and is by far the best track with Rahman's genius all over it. Maahi Ve is another fine melody that is quite playable on the road. With fewer dialogues and an elaborate background score, Imtiaz Ali lays emphasis on the journey through a beautiful land and lets it speak and connect to all senses.

The story, based on Imtiaz's earlier work in television, isn't convoluted but when he transforms the main character through a vivid exposure to life's highway and alters the relationship dynamic with her assailants, the tale is enough to mesmerize. The scenery is breath-taking, the music is soothingly relevant to the story-telling and the actors have given a soulful performance. Some of the dialogues are perhaps quotes of fine poetry and Imtiaz doesn't shy away from being philosophical.
'Highway' offers an escape from dual standards, from everyday stresses of the mundane and gives you a chance to reflect upon life and notice what is truly important. To breathe in fresh air, to experience freedom while disconnecting from your other world, to take a pensive break in rich natural surroundings and to then get up for a spontaneous journey of discovery. Perhaps we have gone so far in our routine life to even appreciate such normalcy that it seems like an escapist's dream. But in his most personal and heartening film, Imtiaz Ali has given us a picture of what could be. In an ugly world where trust leads to anguish and love leads to doom, the Highway is the road less traveled and indeed, the one to take.

- 9.101 on a scale of 1-10.

Mashup of Titanic and Gladiator

Idiv0ixvhvsdw8cwxfpryyy5yev
Reviewed by Picture Debadutta Lenka

Not an inspiring movie and i still dont realize why the movie was actually made.Neither it has some historical relevance nor does it has some heart stopping sequences. It purely takes inspiration from Gladiator and Ben Hur movies to redesign its action sequences.Emily Browning has turned to be an eye candy with not much of strong performance. Terribly misplanned and mismanaged action sequences. Not worth watching rather put the cash inside your wallet and wait for 300 : Rise of the Empire.
Till Then keep watching MOvies :P
