I saw Transformers 3 which IMO was hyped a lot. I actually saw this movie more towards the end of it’s theater period so when I saw it there weren’t a lot of people around us which was nice. Anyways getting back on topic, I have always liked the Transformer movies because of all the “Gundam Suits” and the CG effects. Transformers 3 delivered in all of those criteria so I can’t complain but I feel that after the original movie the sequels had weaker plots. Overall I liked the movie and if you are going to watch it then might as well watch it in theaters so that you can enjoy all the CG effects (in 3D which was well done).
Oh and I have introduced a poll system on the sidebar so you can vote for a movie that you might want to know about before watching it. I will try to list the ones that are on my list or that I have seen but if there’s one that you would like to know about but is not in the list then feel free to leave a comment :D
Movie: Transformers 3 – Dark Of The Moon
Genre: Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Stars: Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Tyrese Gibson
Summary (IMDB): The Autobots learn of a Cybertronian spacecraft hidden on the Moon, and race against the Decepticons to reach it and to learn its secrets.
Personal Rating: 7.5/10
It is good if you have seen the previous movies for a better understanding but I think people who have never seen a transformers movie can still enjoy this movie unlike a lot of other movie series. I only have a few comments on the casting…I didn’t see a need for the female lead for most parts of the movie. I felt that a need for her was created by using her to create some of the “required” elements in the movie. I am NOT a fan of Megan Fox but I definitely felt that she did a better job at being female lead than Rosie. I also felt that he background story fits the base plot a lot better as well. On a side not I loved the comic relief provided by Sam’s decepticon pets (Wheelie and Brains).
I gave the movie a 7.5 because I deducted points for the weak plot. I also felt that some parts of the movie were unnecessary due to which the movie seemed kind of stretched. I am going to try to keep the spoilers review shorter so that you can decipher the movie for yourself if you do watch it XD.
Finally a review with a good score XD. I love watching movies and it was bothering me that the past two reviews were of movies that sucked. With high expectations I went to watch the finale of the Harry Potter series (movies) and I have to say, I got served (no pun intended lol)!
I would highly recommend all Potterholics to go and watch this one, yes in 3D because for once it has been manifested splendidly.[1. Besides Thor which is one of my favorite 3D movies.] Unfortunately I wasn’t able to go for the midnight show because I had work early morning the next day. I have heard/seen that a lot of people cosplayed as either Harry Potter characters or simply as wizards while they came to see the movie. If you have fun stories regarding the same do tell! Personally I didn’t see as many during my movie trip but I did see two girls who had dressed up as wizards. Then again I went on Saturday afternoon so I guess the die-hard fans probably saw it before me XD. I did get to watch it with a good bunch of HP peeps. Right before the movie, everyone was enthusiastic in answering those Wizarding Exam questions. During the movie the audience unanimously applauded during certain scenes (read spoilers) and cried during the tear-jerking moments. I have to admit that this was the first HP movie that made me shed a few tears. I knew what was going to happen but still the tear-jerker moments were executed perfectly even to make the book readers shed a few tears here and there. I am glad that the last book was broken into two parts for the movie and as a result they didn’t skip out on a lot of events that occurred in the book.
Movie: Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows Part II
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama
Stars: Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint
Summary (IMDB): The final chapter begins as Harry, Ron, and Hermione continue their quest of finding and destroying the Dark Lord’s three remaining Horcruxes, the magical items responsible for his immortality. But as the mystical Deathly Hallows are uncovered, and Voldemort finds out about their mission, the biggest battle begins and life as they know it will never be the same again.
Personal Rating: 8.9/10
I wasn’t able to decide if I should score it a perfect 10 or something lower. In the end I decided to go with a 8.9 because of certain factors. After a lot of experience on “listing” sites where you review and rate I realized that I was a very generous rater. Initially I didn’t know the extent to which it would affect other people’s decision. I saw a lot of arguing and flaming as a result of this happening on those sites and luckily I never had to face it myself. However I decided to become less biased while rating and started taking more neutral views on things. Anyways back to Harry Potter, I deducted a few points because I felt that some of the battle scenes towards the end were extended for more special effects? I didn’t hate them but I feel that they were very similar to something you would see in a LOTR (Lord of the rings) movie. Maybe I am asking for too much but I would have liked more unique battle scenes…more magical? I also wanted some more elaboration on Snape’s past[2. I apologize if this is a spoiler for you but I decided to put it outside the spoiler block since it doesn't really reveal anything.] which is probably my favorite part in the movie besides the epilogue. Then again Books > Movies so I think 8.9 is a good score :D
