It (2017)

  • RATING: 7/10

  • REVIEW: It (2017) is a great watch and has a different concept of horror altogether. The main character representing the demonic presence, is a creature which takes the physical form of a clown. The character of the clown has been played very well by actor Bill Skarsgård and gives you chills when you’re watching the movie. Although, due to an excessive appearance of the clown in many scenes, you get used to the character and it ceases to scare you after a point. The movie is set up in a town named Derry, which is terrorized once every 27 years by a clown named Pennywise. A group of kids who have been confronted by the clown on several occasions, decide to join hands and put an end to the horror as nobody else would do anything about it. With a slight sense of humor and some terrific scares, the movie is worth spending your money on.

The Layover (2017)

  • RATING: 5.2/10

  • REVIEW: The Layover (2017) is not really good when it comes to the acting. Kate and Alexandra are not a good duo and did not really connect well in the movie as expected. The story-line is decent but the scenes are very abrupt and the mood of the scene is easily misunderstood. The movie is all about two girls going through a bad phase in life, after losing their jobs. To make things worse, on their trip together, they battle each other for the same guy and try to run each other down in order to get the guy they desire. The movie is all about these twists and turns and catches up to a little laughter, but is not worth the watch.

Death Note (2017)

  • RATING: 5/10

  • REVIEW: Death Note (2017) is the film adaptation of the popular anime TV show, Death Note. It has a great plot to begin with but as the movie progresses on, the story-line gets confusing and dull. Everything is rushed and has been squeezed into one whole big mess. The movie starts off with a teenage boy who has been chosen to be given the Death Note, a book which has the power to eliminate anyone as long as their name is mentioned in the book. The boy, Light, then chooses to use the book to get rid of all crime but does not realize the consequences and soon finds himself in trouble.

Annabelle: Creation (2017)

  • RATING: 7.2/10

  • REVIEW: Annabelle: Creation has proved far better than it’s prequel and is way scarier than anticipated. Although the story-line may not be that promising, the movie has many scenes which will startle you and give you goosebumps. The set on which the movie has been shot is quite spooky and gives it the horror effect it needs. With a dozen scary scenes, the movie also has several demons which appear now and then thus not centralizing it around a single entity only. Watching this flick in the theater is recommended as the sound effects may not be as good on TV of-course. Annabelle: Creation shows us the life of a simple doll-maker and his family at the start with all going well for them but a tragic freak accident kills their one and only beloved daughter. In an attempt to reach out to their daughter, they try out various rituals but it only brings them more sorrow. 12 years later, they provide shelter to a nun and a few orphans by inviting them to stay at their home, but only to learn that their bad luck will soon reign upon the new residents too.

Alien: Covenant (2017)

  • RATING: 5.5/10

  • REVIEW: Alien: Covenant is a supposed prequel to the older Alien movie series and also follows what happens after the movie Prometheus (2012). It closely explains the origin of the Alien species, the ‘Xenomorphs’ and who was responsible for their creation. The movie has a good plot but it’s also very predictable and the suspense factor is eliminated. Also, many aspects of the movie have been rushed hence making it confusing and very sudden. Alien: Covenant is all about a colony mission aiming at reviving a dying human race on planet Earth. Mid-way, the ship and their crew decide to test a planet hinting at possibilities of living conditions for humans and head to their new destination, but things escalate quickly and they realize their decision was not a good one.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard (2017)

  • RATING: 6.9/10

  • REVIEW: The Hitman’s Bodyguard is a decent watch with a good cast line-up. With Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles, you know nothing is better. It’s filled with back-to-back action scenes but has a dull sense of humor. However, all the action makes up for it along with the story line. The movie begins with a rich Ryan Reynolds escorting a client through his state of the art Triple A executive protection service with everything going smoothly, but after the client is assassinated as soon as he is escorted, things do not turn out well for Ryan and he loses his reputation. The movie moves on to bring Ryan and Samuel together only to find out they’re enemies and they have to work together to stay alive.

All Eyez on Me (2017)

  • RATING: 6.8/10

  • REVIEW: “Every brother ain’t a brother”. Based on true events, All Eyez on Me explains the untold story of the famous rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur’s life. The movie shows us how events in Tupac’s childhood led him to become a rapper and educate the masses with his voice, but with fame and money, he strayed and acted reckless thus calling out for trouble. The movie is presented in a strange way with past events being shown in the middle, so it’s hard to connect the dots and understand what’s really happening but it also covers almost every aspect of the rapper’s life, from the way he dressed to the way he behaved. Concluding, the movie deserves a watch although it has been rubbished by many big personalities.

Rough Night (2017)

  • RATING: 6.2/10

  • REVIEW: Rough Night is a decent movie but only for viewers who can tolerate comedy in somewhat serious situations. It’s one of those movies with a fast-changing atmosphere, which means a funny scene quickly drops into a tense one thus changing moods really fast. Scarlett Johansson, the bride-to-be, was the best at her role and did a great job by staying in character for most of the scenes, but the rest of the cast, not so much. The movie has a somewhat crazy plot involving booze, drugs, a male escort and some wild parties but things start going out of hand when the male escort is accidentally killed by the bachelorette group. Apart from the rapid scene changes, the movie is filled with random lame jokes and you wouldn’t be missing out on much if you decided to skip watching it.

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

 

  • RATING: 7/10

  • REVIEW: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, takes us into a fantasy world, amidst Wizards, Dark Lords, Mystical Creatures and a whole lot of sword fighting. Displaying a rather confusing plot, one has to pay close attention while watching the movie, to make sense of it. With an amazing story line and vivid screenplay, King Arthur gets to you in an unrealistic way thus making your imaginations run wild in a mythical world full of fantasy. Young Arthur, forced to flee as a child, has vague memories of his past and takes a rough start to his life by growing up in the streets. With the crown now in the wrong hands, it is up to Arthur to relive his memories with the help of a priestess, and take back what is rightfully his thereby bringing peace and prosperity to the people.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

  • RATING: 6.8/10

  • REVIEW: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is an entertaining movie but only to the point where the anything-can-happen phenomenon does not exist. While humor and crazy action scenes entertain you, there are other aspects of this movie which would not necessarily be enjoyable, like fighting living planets and surviving asteroid fields. Guardians Vol. 2 relays the truth about Peter’s biological father and as to why he was created, along with battles that define who he truly is – a worthy Guardian of the Galaxy. One of the main reasons behind this movie’s success is the character Groot who expresses humor and a sense of cuteness in the film.

Baywatch (2017)

  • RATING: 6/10

  • REVIEW: Baywatch is the cinematic version of the old hit television series Baywatch (David Hasselhoff), with Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson starring as well-built lifeguards guarding the bay. An over smart Matt Brody, tries proving himself as the best, after numerous failures and reckless behavior but is no competition for the leader of them all – Mitch Buchannon. Finally, with newly recruited lifeguards, Baywatch races into a clash between a female drug lord and the coastal heroes. With slap-stick comedy and a mainstream plot, as the overall theme for the movie, Baywatch tends to get dry but also gets you into splits of laughter in a couple of scenes.

Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

  • RATING: 6.8/10

  • REVIEW: Spider-Man: Homecoming, set out right after what transpires in Captain America: Civil War, shows us what the life of young Peter Parker is actually like. Small town, high-school crush and a hyperactive aunt is what Peter faces in his not-so-very exciting life at the moment. But things take a turn when he learns of a new villain on the block with some cool toys at his disposal, used as weapons of massive destruction to steal alien warfare. With quite a few funny scenes and a charismatic Tom Holland as the lead actor, Homecoming is partially childish and does not reach up to the level of the original Toby Maguire Spidey series. Nevertheless, it’s an enjoyable movie.

The Fate of the Furious (2017)

  • RATING: 5/10

  • REVIEW: The Fate of the Furious, the 8th installment in the fast and furious series, is a one-time watch only. Based on a comedy of errors where enemies join hands to fight new enemies, the Fate of the Furious is not a worthwhile watch as compared to the prequels. A plane that never lands, a Dominic that betrays fam and a remote-controlled submarine are all a part of this mixed up plot the movie has, to offer.

Going In Style (2017)

  • RATING: 6.5/10

  • REVIEW: Old is gold. If the movie industry has ever taught us anything, it’s that old never really gets old. Going In Style is one of those movies with an old school reputed cast, based on the life of three broke old guys who plan to rob a bank. The plot may not be as fast and as happening as a top of the game heist flick but is sure to get you involved in it right to the very end.

Life (2017)

  • RATING: 7/10

  • REVIEW: Life, a really subtle title for an otherwise dark movie, revolves around the discovery of a new life species on Mars by a group of scientists on the International Space Station. Things accelerate quickly with the new life form proving to be threatening to all those on board, soon turning into a life or death situation. The movie is a thriller of different sorts and is one of the best outer space themed movies after Gravity (2013). It has a gripping effect on the viewers and a dark-twisted ending.

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

  • RATING: 7.5/10

  • REVIEW: An amazing remake of the original King Kong (2005), with a modernized touch to it and a completely different story-line. It’s packed with dramatic action scenes and creatures from a different dimension. Set out on an island in the middle of nowhere, Kong: Skull Island revolves around a group of men looking for something close to war, not realizing what they’re about to face. Basic survival instinct becomes their closest friend, but unfortunately that’s not enough, leaving them to rely on something BIGGER!
