Except that, I definitely know who Tilda is and I would never make my boyfriend watch Hunger Games if he is not interested. I am not a big fan of that series (Hunger games, I mean), but it wasn’t too bad either. I definitely don’t know much about superheroes and Marvel keeps churning one after another which becomes so difficult for me to keep up. I am just going to take it one movie at a time, depending on how much I like the actors in it and then get the backstory from my friends who are a HUGE fan of that series. I had no idea until the trailers started coming out about Doctor Strange, but will definitely be watching this movie 🙂
Instead of making it over the weekend, we ended up watching it on a Friday afternoon (purely by accident, you know)….yay!!!! Yeah, yeah I am talking about Mr Pool, Dead, the one that triggered my rant post a day ago?
It was Awesome! It could have been better with those unmuted lines (can’t even lipread Mr Pool because of his mask….damn!) but looks like they got away with f*** word and honestly, they can’t do much with some of the visuals which are very detail, graphically 😉 Obviously, some of the very intimate scenes are totally cut. You see the couple getting all close and then suddenly they are standing together and trying their hand at a ball game. OK, now that that is out of the way, I should say the film is a hit right from the moment the magazine where Ryan Reynolds is shown as the sexiest man alive comes up 😛 I ain’t gonna spoil it for anyone who is gonna watch the movie by telling you if Hugh Jackman does a surprise cameo or not. You have to watch it for yourself 😉 There is no dearth of laughter, puns, humor, cheeky lines or even gory action sequences. Will definitely have to watch the uncensored version later to know what was cut from this movie. The hip hop songs made me wanna groove to the music in my chair and thankfully the audience was mostly comprised of college kids and hence me shouting and clapping and whooping wasn’t exclusive.
Long story short, I just loved the movie 🙂 Definitely a hit. I did have my reservations about it even before the first trailer came out. Wasn’t sure about seeing Ryan Reynolds in such an action packed movie, but man, he was amazing. And do wait until all the credits are done, yeah? We were only a select few in the theater to watch the final few scenes after the credits.
When my friends wanted to see this movie ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ I wasn’t sure if I would like it. I am not a great fan of comics (haven’t read any). Even though I like Superman, Spiderman (only the first 2 movies and haven’t seen the rest yet) and Batman (watched all of them) I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy this movie without watching all the other such movies like Avengers, Thor etc. But they sort of convinced me that I would enjoy it no matter what and that it had great reviews. He booked for all of us in IMAX , the costliest 3D one before we could even voice our protest and we were sort of forced to watch it in that big screen with good visual effects. And I should say, it was worth the money. I was really very surprised by the movie. I am not going into the story here because it is better written in the Wikipedia anyways. Even though it did start of a little serious, as soon as Chris Pratt enters the scene with the small mixtape player and the 80’s songs playing in it, it gets interesting. The humor through out had me smiling and some times out right laughing out loud. That is the biggest positive thing in this movie for me. Most of the times it is very subtle but some times it is just the small visual clue.
I don’t watch any series in TV , I don’t even switch on the TV most of the times and this is the first time I am hearing of Chris Pratt. He is quite good and I liked him. The first time he says ‘I am Star Lord’ and the other Ravager says ‘who’ and the way he rolls his eyes and the same guy at the end when he sees him and says ‘Star Lord’, this guy looks so relieved and says ‘finally’. It was really good. Fun and flirty.
And the Raccoon. Oh my god. I loved that cute guy. And perfect voice by Bradley Cooper. The frustration, the fun…just loved it. Vin Diesel as Groot saying ‘I am groot’ in different tones to match the situation was pretty cool. All the people who were involved did a very good job and the special effects were also very good. I usually get headaches after watching a 3D movie and this was no exception. The glasses doesn’t suit me for a long time. But unlike some movies where the 3D doesn’t add any value add, this one did sort of made me feel as if I was there. (Side note: Saw the ‘The Hobbit -3’ trailer in IMAX 3D and it was so amazing. I am so watching that movie in IMAX 3D only). My friend did fill me in on the other movies which were remotely related to it (with respect to the infinity stones and Thanos). Overall a fun and entertaining movie.
