Mohenjo Daro
Review: Mohenjo Daro- A movie just like history; dragging and never ending, decent attempt in VFX
2:00 pm PDT 13/08/2016 By Ronald Rodrigues

Long history books which seem never ending at least possess a great deal of information, but Mohenjo Daro lacks that too. It has everything but history. The plot is slow which makes you predict the progression within the first 20 mins of the movie. And don’t worry, your prediction is going to be right. The lead protagonist retreats back to his childhood town of Mohenjo Daro to discover the actual truth of his past, falls in love, stands against injustice, … Read More

Review- Rustom; a dragged tale with deliberate humour and noticeable VFX
4:00 pm PDT 12/08/2016 By Ronald Rodrigues

‘Inspired by true incidents’ when you read such words in connection to a movie, your expectations from the movie soar high almost involuntarily. And just one expectation which shouldn’t be shattered is that the incident should be done justice; sometimes too much of humour or slow progression of plot drains down the essence of the incident. The interests of the viewers is lost when the attention span is tested for long as Rustom is unnecessarily dragged. The movie wanted to … Read More

Aquaman is all set to face his archenemy in his solo movie
2:00 pm PDT 11/08/2016 By AnimationXpress Team

Every superhero needs an equally (almost) powerful supervillian to shine as the good guy and we all can agree to it. That being the case, through the times we have fallen in love with some characters who are ideally the bad guys of the story’s plot. A bunch of superhero movies are making their way to the big screen in the coming years. Recently, there was Deadpool, Suicide Squad and now people are eagerly anticipating movies like Wonder Woman, The … Read More

During the time when Warner Bros. studio is receiving negative reviews about its superhero films, seems like the reviews won’t back down the studio from producing more films.

Suicide Squad review: The craziness, sound track and actors make you want to neglect the plot and enjoy the film
2:00 pm PDT 05/08/2016 By Prerna Kothari

Amidst the negative reviews and an online petition against Rotten Tomatoes to shut it down for its unjust ratings, the super villain team-up finally hit the Indian soil and I beg to differ with other reviewers. The hype and excitement that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment managed to build over the badass movie Suicide Squad has been delivered beautifully and not a single second was not worth your time. Post the negative reviews DC received for Zack Synder’s Batman v Superman, … Read More

Review: Disney’s ‘The BFG’ stands tall in animation but falls short on storytelling
12:00 pm PDT 29/07/2016 By Ronald Rodrigues

It reminds me of the simple analogy that I learned in school – If a thread is stretched too much from either sides, it may end up breaking. Anything prolongated may fail to grip your attention. Moreover, in the current lifestyle where sometimes even a five minute short film on YouTube seems long despite of its decent content; grabbing eyeballs and keeping the audience hooked to a dragged content on the big screen is highly doubtful. Fictional tales gives a … Read More

5:30 pm PDT 26/07/2016 By AnimationXpress Team

“Stephan Strange, mind if I offer you some advice? Forget everything that you think you know.” This line which we heard in the teaser trailer of Doctor Strange seems to be not just for Strange but for all of us as Marvel released Doctor Strange’s trailer at San Diego Comic-Con. And boy-oh-boy did it make us marvel and left us pondering on what the movie would be all about. So far we have seen mutants, metahumans, tech savvy superheroes, gods … Read More

3:00 pm PDT 26/07/2016 By AnimationXpress Team

Magic and mysteries are something that each one of us is keen about, in a skeptical way or the other way round. However, one thing is inevitable; it’s the fact that no one can evade the charm provided by these stories replete with magical adventures, as most of them teach valuable lessons and provide vigour to our journey called ‘life’. Moana, Disney’s upcoming feature plans to take everyone on a magical journey as the protagonist, a teenager named Moana from presumably … Read More

Fantastic Beasts 6
Now we know where to find J.K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts’
5:00 pm PDT 25/07/2016 By AnimationXpress Team

“I wanna be a wizard! I wanna play around with the magical creatures flying across the street and lastly, I wanna own that briefcase full of fantastic beasts.” A similar desire might erupt in you after watching the recent Fantastic Beasts trailer with the high point ‘now you know where to find them’ in contrast to what the title claims. When you walk back in the past on the land of New York City in 1926, there seems to be … Read More

Batman assembles a crew to save the world from destruction in the new ‘Justice League’ movie clip
3:00 pm PDT 25/07/2016 By AnimationXpress Team

A band of superheroes saving the planet from sheer destruction. While this has been a concept for many super hero movies and animated features alike, the idea primarily paints one picture in our mind, ‘Justice League’. The thrilling series from DC Comics won countless hearts over the years and set a benchmark for superhero squad stories. Now, as we already know, the first ever live-action movie inspired by the comics will be hitting theatres next year for which everyone is … Read More

3:00 pm PDT 21/07/2016 By AnimationXpress Team

Originally created by Satoshi Tajiri in 1995, Pokemon has been a part of almost every child’s life of that generation. The enchanting world of special creatures and the zeal to become a Pokemon master like the protagonist Ash has been the dream of everyone. Recently, with the advent of Pokemon Go the long popular IP seems to have rejuvenated the memories and brought back the craze and on the other hand raised the share values of Nintendo by whopping levels. … Read More
