A Flying Jatt Review: No superhero can save the flawed VFX in this film
12:30 pm PDT 25/08/2016 By Prerna Kothari

When we hear the words “superhero” and “film”, countless number of movies come gushing to our minds along with expectations. A strong storyline, the plot, characters, music and majorly high end visual effects – all these can be termed as the mantra to make any superhero film successful. So far, the Bollywood industry has witnessed two superhero flicks Ra.One or Krrish, and if not mind blowing they had decent VFX work. Now, there’s one more superhero film being added in this … Read More

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

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
