My Humble Thoughts On a Classic

DraculaDracula by Bram Stoker

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I must admit, this one was not even on my list of books to read. The only reason I ended up reading the classic tale of the infamous vampire, was because I completed my previous book while on holiday and neglected to carry a new one. And since this one was already downloaded on the kindle (free of cost apparently) I decided to give it a go.

My Views On Suicide Squad

DC and WB are trying hard to appease the fans. So hard that they maybe alienating the fans that truly did appreciate the darker take on the Superhero genre they started. Succumbing to the criticism that both previous DCEU movies (Man Of Steel and Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice) were too dark for audiences, the studio execs commissioned reshoots to Suicide Squad in an effort to lighten the tone and make it a tad more action packed.

My Thoughts On Piku

Piku Hindi Movie

Source: Google Image Search

Piku is a slice of life movie. No larger than life characters. No intricate plots. No foreign locales. No item numbers. No nacho gaana (song and dance). Yet despite the missing usual ingredients for a masala potboiler that guarantees box office success, Piku pulls a string in hearts of audiences across demographics. Partly due to the comedic situations that Bachchan’s characters’s bowels pose but mostly because of the down to earth banter that takes place between all the characters.

My thoughts on Furious 7

fast-furious-715 years and the franchise is churning out blockbusters at an average of one every two years. One would think that by now the series has lost its charm. One would be wrong. Fast & Furious 7 (aka Furious 7) is possibly the biggest installment in the franchise, both in terms of budget and action. And has now become the highest grossing of the entire lot. In fact, Fast & Furious has become one of the most profitable franchises in movie history.
