An In-Depth Review Of Blade 2


Blade 2 is one that a lot of movie buffs like me can associate to and this movie has an amazing mature approach to superhero concept movie when compared to the others in this genre that I have seen in a span of 10 years. The effects of the movie are sensible and practical rather than a lack of conviction.


The movie boasts of dinginess more than any other night movies that I can recollect. The movie’s plot revolves around the son and father relation with the backdrop of vampire slaying similar to first one in the series. This element is appreciable. It’s about how whistler becomes a surrogate father to Blade and how he continues his search for whistler due to the events of first series. Whistler is portrayed by Kris Kristofferson plays Whistler and as usual Wesley snipes is the badass hero Blade. Blade 2 has other impressive star cast such as Ron Perlman, Norman Reedus, Luke Goss, Donnie Yen and others.


Blade shines in this version, which has a crude illogical plot and proposition. Blade, who is an equal threat, seeks help rather than taking on their new arch-enemy themselves by the vampires, to destroy the new threat. The illogical thought makes you feel how did Blade get this inclination to help the creatures he has pledged his life for their destruction and he is even up to it. He also manages to get friendly with few new recruits, in the vampire camp.

Wesley snipes is a little out of shape in this version. The fights or is it the choreography that doesn’t seem up to the mark.


The problem with this movie is that it stands strong on style and loses its ground on substance. Sorry to disappoint fans but my movie parameters for this genre has changed. This heirloom is good but this movie which is of a comic book movie landscape. Though it works in the long run.

Another Great Animated Movie From Disney For Both Kids & Adults Alike


Inside out, frozen, Up, Big Hero 6 and now Zootopia are some of the fun animated movies that I have enjoyed watching in recent years. The USP of the movies are clearly the adorable furry animals. Neither a kid nor an adult would resist these animated humanly animals. The feel of Zootopia is of a futuristic animal’s paradise with distinct background stories and personalities that makes it a hit.

Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) the bunny overcome with ambition becomes the first rabbit cop by defying all odds. By luck Hopps finally hops into Zootopia. Now the disturbance in her (Hopps) new dream career is Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman). And there is the sly fox Mr. Wild. Jokes apart, the serious business is that Hopps who has a complex befitting to Napoleon is presumably a determined bunny, ushers Wild into justice of Zootopia. Wild helps her solve the case of missing Otter.

Hopps and Wilde work is precision to conclude the mystery.


The movie is fun and gripping. Zootopia as the name suggests is a movie which has a wide variety of animals who behave like humans that have cuteness in them. It has backdrops of Siberia, Dubai and NYC-LA set in the magical world of animals. There is a scene where Hopps gets into an electric train which traverses through different regions and climates. This is Zootopia for you-a combination of these.

Arguably, sloth Flash (Raymond S. Persi) who steals the show is the best animal character that is very slow at DMV check out which is the funniest scene of the movie. The movie shows animals of each variety has a different section in the city and the caricaturists vary in size too.


Movies such as these need a microscopic view to find any negatives. If there is any it would be the predictability of the chemistry between Hopps and Wilde and the other is the mystery in the plot is for audience above age 10 plus and kids younger than that would find it difficult to follow.


Zootopia has all that it takes to be a hit movie such as stunning visuals in a surreal world which you did want to visit some day. A lot of care and fine tuning also can be sensed in the way minor details are showcased by the filmmakers. It’s a clever Disney animated movie that can be enjoyed by kids and adults alike.

The Light Between The Oceans – One Of It’s Kind


I wanted to keep this movie as a surprise and experience all the emotions unleashed only in the theatre and it indeed proves to be the best movie minus the super hero factor. This movie is set in the 1920s Australia on an island and the story is about a lighthouse keeper and his wife whose life is transformed when they find a baby in a boat lost in the sea. Soon this happy change comes to a halt when they discover the truth.


Though, melodramatic this movie looks like one beautiful painting talking to you and you are automatically pulled into it. In the first look itself you can feel the mystery and you get spell bound to what follows. They say slow and steady wins the race – This belongs to that category, definitely won’t put you to sleep. I was in for lot of surprises which kept me on the edge and guessing.

You know what to expect when there is an ocean, an island, sunsets, storms and other simple breathtaking views in the movie-captivating. All thanks to the cinematographer Adam Arkapaw. The costumes were simple and in sync with the era detailed in the movie.

lit1Isolation of the protagonists is contemplative of the plot and the journey of them. The storytelling Derek Cianfrance, the director of the movie is exclusive. The Place beyond the Pines and Blue Valentine are other masterpieces of this director. And this movie is an emotional, lengthy movie with a humane touch which is appreciable.

Fassbender and Vikander have given Oscar worthy performances. This movie adds a feather to Fassbender’s film career and put him on the path of a legendary actor. His phenomenal character is mild and subtle and oscar winner Vikander’s character in this movie supports the spectacular display. She proved she can show vivid emotions ranging from grief to desperation and guilt. Alongside comes Rachel Weisz whose performance falls short.


The ending left me wanting for more as it was no was near a regular Hollywood type. The film might seem lengthy before you realize that whole plot deserves the time frame. Minor logical glitches like Fassbender and Vikander, who sound more British than the Aussies that they portray if that was what the audience were supposed to think.


The Light Between Oceans is a romantic suspense movie with some spectacular performances. It’s the story of parenting and parents and human emotions attached to adoption. If you don’t leave the theatre with some heavy feeling, no movie will.
