Movies of the week

Finding Dory

It did not have the same charm as Finding Nemo. With the kind of promotion that went into it I thought it would be better than that. And I was never once emotional in that whole movie. It sure did have a message and all. But something that would connect me to Dory was missing. It also felt like the movie went too fast. Of course, as fishes they would move fast, but still, it felt very hurried. The kids might enjoy it.

Independence Day – Resurrgence

I had vowed that I wouldn’t go to this movie when I saw the trailer last year sometime. But since it was a team event and everyone voted for this one (I voted for Tarzan 😦 ) my option was ruled out. It was on IMAX 3D. I did not have any expectation and I went with the sole purpose of making fun of the scenes and having fun. Inspite of me not being a fan of Liam Hemsworth (I loved Chris Hemsworth in the short clip which was part of the trailer of Ghostbusters) I was the only one in the theater who was clapping when he came up on screen. And that wasn’t even a grand entrance. 🙄 I liked the other guy, who was with him, but he looked way too young. If you don’t use logic or any other part of your brain other than the one associated with sight and sound then you would be OK with it. CGI were cool. Why do we have ugly aliens all the time? Why can aliens be cute and good looking? And I seriously hope that they don’t take any more sequels. I am not sure if Earth is ready for it, but I am pretty sure the audience wouldn’t be. No wonder Finding Dory was more popular in box office than this movie.

Guhantara Resorts – Had been on a day outing today.

  • Road to this resort is very bad at least for the last 0.6 kms it is worse.
  • We took a day out package
  • Food was average
  • Artificial caves (rooms are also available for rent)
  • Had fun with Shuttle Badminton and other outdoor games
  • Dirt Bike gave me a scare and could do only one round out of the four.
  • Good for a fun outing for a day.
