Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Movie

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales tells no tale at all

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has many tales to tell. The first and the most important is the story of hacking of the movie before its release and the ransom call to prevent its online screening ahead of release. But thanks god, nothing sort of this happened and the movie was released without any drama.

Second best Pirates of the Caribbean movie

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has many good things to its credit. The directors are famous duo of popular Norwegian movie Kon-Tiki; the cinematographer Paul Cameron took gorgeous shots of great locations around the world and the villain Javier Bardem galloped several hams before coming to the set. The best thing is that it has many things happening for first time in the series started in 2003. With so many good things, the film is expected to be a hit but the initial reviews aren’t satisfactory.

Good things are abandoned

It is difficult to link the story with the characters or it would be more appropriate to say that audiences can’t relate the characters to the story. But it could be an individual opinion. In my opinion, viewers will try relating the actions and dialogues with the story. For me, it is like a zig-saw puzzle that I kept solving for those 129 minutes. It isn’t that the movie has no story at all but the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 story doesn’t correlate with the stories of the earlier installments.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has many things first time

The movie surprises many times. Every character has a story to tell and every character is different for one reason or another. For instance take Jack Parrow, the lead actor of the movie. The story revolves around this character but the viewers are left to think what the hell Jack is dong in the story.

Thor: Ragnarok Movie

Thor Ragnarok: Every character in the movie has a different story to tell

Thor Ragnarok is Thor 3 or the third installment of the Thor series and 17th of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).The movie has the iconic Mjolnir and the whole bunch of bad guys including Loki but the biggest antagonist for the hammer wielding Thor is Hulk.

Thor 3 was confirmed in January 2014 but it’s the best Thor movie of all. At the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor revealed the mystery of Infinity Stones and also gave hints of his next expedition to the cosmos and the Asgard. The film revolves around Thor and it is seen as an opportunity for Chris Hemsworth to give solo performance and a hit. One more interesting thing about the Ragnarok is that a robot clone of Thor was prepared for the movie. But it isn’t known how the robot factors in the plot. Hemsforth is just perfect for the role.

Loki is another important character in the move. He’s important not because his role in the plot but because he got all the limelight in the last two installments. This character managed to steal the show in one way or another. But in Ragnarok, it is all about Thor.

No review of Thor 3 will be complete without defining role of Bruce Banner also known as Hulk. In Ragnarok, the Hulk is an antagonist for some reasons but he was a friend of Thor in earlier installments. Will the hammer be able to stop the gigantic Hulk? The answer comes from Mark Ruffalo. He says that Bruce Banner fights with Hulk and ultimately the friend wins. Finally, we see Hulk teaming with Hammer to stop the destructive forces.

Thor Ragnarok is going to be a big movie in many ways. In addition to bringing a couple of cool and bad guys together, MCU is also able to include the Planet Hulk storyline in the plot. There is more to tell about the movie like Grandmaster, Hela and not to forget to mention Valkyrie, the great warrior of Asgardian descent.

He named the city he was looking for “Z”. In movie, Charlie Hunnam is playing Colonel Percy Fawcett. He was so determined that he didn’t worried about all the sarcastic remarks and negative comments made by intellectual and scientific community. They all were ridiculing Percy for his expedition that yielded no result. The only thing that was in the favor of Percy was his family and financers who believed on his theory of existence of a city.

The fateful expedition in which Percy lost his life was started on 20 April 1925 and the incident occurred after 29 May 1925 when Percy wrote a letter to his beloved wife.

The Fate of the Furious Movie

The Fate of the Furious: It is unbelievable that Dom could be seduced to work against his team

The first thing to know about The Fate of the Furious is that it is the eighth movie in the Fast and Furious series. But it isn’t as furious as the previous seven installments were. It seems that the F. Gary Gray, the director of the movie, has spent all his creativity in the earlier instalments and the Fast & Furious 8 was just a responsibility.

The story is very short but has lots of action that doesn’t make much sense. There is car racing and some emotional dialogues by Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson popularly known as the Rock. Recall the Fast 7 that was the last installment of the Fast and Furious series. Dominic Toretto and Letty Ortiz are happily married couple now and they’re on their honeymoon trip. Brian and Mila have retired and rest of the crew has been acquitted.

The film opens with a furious street car race somewhere in Cuba. The globe tottering team that has just begun to settled down to normal life suddenly wakes up to the call of a mysterious woman. She’s beautiful and intelligent as well and she’s out on a mission that becomes theme of the movie. In short, the crew has to get ready to stop a bigger threat and this time from inside.

The mysterious woman seduces Dom and pursues him to work against his team. Dom couldn’t sense the ill motives of that woman and becomes a puppet in her hands. He turns hostile to those that were once very close to him. Dom has become a terrorist and the crew faces the trial that is never seen before. Dom was introduced to the world of terrorism from where there is no coming back. It is sad to see that the captain of Furious team is himself an antagonist.

Beauty and the Beast Movie

Beauty and the Beast: Depiction of eternal love story of a beauty and a beast with fabulous production

Beauty and the Beast has everything from the special effects to costumes and from voice-overs to songs first rated. It is a classic fairy-tale story and it doesn’t matter whether you like Disney princesses and their tales as you’ll fall in love with Belle the princess in this movie. But don’t get afraid from the beast and don’t take him as a beast as he’s a fairly handsome prince turned into a beast by an enchantress.

It is long story and could have been told many times but Bill Condon and his team is all set to take you to a journey into the past where there are castles, verdant greenery and talking candelabra and mantel clock. They all are castles enchanting staff and you’ll become fan of each and every staff turned into household objects by the enchantress. For voice-over of the castle staff, Condon took finest actors including Ewan McGregor, Ian McKellen, Emma Thompson and Stanley Tucci.

Performance of Dan Stevens as the best is decent if not memorable and Emma Watson looks real in the role of Belle. Stevens has got a terrifying CGI makeover but it is needed to give the necessary thrust to the role Stevens is playing. The third important character is of a hare-brained Romeo who is in love with Belle and wants to get her attention at any cost is played by a promising actor Luke Evans. Also Kevin Kline looks responsible in the role of Belle’s father.

What makes Beauty and the Beast stand out from other movies is its significance. It is still relevant and no matter how old the story is or how many times the story has been told. Beauty and the Beast story looks new from every point. But the depiction of the love story between Belle and the Beast isn’t as good as the grandeur of this spectacular production is.
