    He was one of the first south stars to adopt the "Salt & Pepper" look that Clooney made so popular.Also one of the few actors who play his age, (maybe because he looks so great, he's of mixed ethnicity Sindhi + South Indian) ..

    Read up on Ajith if you can, great personality , super humble guy, has had a parallel career in Motor Racing to go with his films.. (He raced in Formula 3 !)

    Lion - 8.5/10 - The young Indian actors were superb! A very emotional true story but brilliantly made into a move.

    Malcolm X - 9/10 - Classic.

    Badrinath ki Dulhania

    A lighthearted film which explores the serious topic of the dowry culture in India and how people discriminate against women and deprive them of opportunities.

    Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan are very good in it and it's a decent film although I felt the second half dragged a bit.

    7/10

    Logan

    Logan - 9.4/10


    Wow Wow Wow

    Greatest X-Men film ever, Marvel's greatest film !.. Even though X-men is Fox's & not MCU ..

    Ties with TDK as the greatest comic book /superhero film ever (maybe even ahead of TDK) !

    Career best performance from Hugh Jackman (potential oscar nod - yeah, it's that good !) and best ever Prof. X from Patric Stewart !

    First of all, lemme get it out there, I'm hardcore DC. !! Bats, Sups and WW and JL beat the crap out of anything that Marvel has put out (I mean overall, Comics - Cartoons - Films ). Most marvel superheros were historically responses to the DC characters that came first (Batman-Iron man, Superman- Captian America, Deathstroke- Deadpool, JL- Avengers), which always gives the impression of them being under-powered imitations( generalization), EXCEPT when it came to THE XMEN !!!..

    The X-Men for me, make Marvel so great. They are not Superhero's like the rest, just evolved humans, and people hate them, are afraid of them . Which is basically what would happen to super-powered beings in the real world.!

    This grounded and in a way- realistic, depiction of powered beings is what made X-Men so riveting as a franchise.. and "Wolverine" is the de-facto X-men(man?) !. Pretty much marvel's greatest property alongside Spider-Man !.. Since Hugh IS "wolverine" his swan-song effort was always going to be hyped..

    But it has far exceeded anything that I expected. "The Wolverine" (2013) was a pretty satisfying solo movie, but many people found it boring (lack of action maybe ..). But this movie basically acheives what "Wolverine" tried to do but fell short at .

    First of all Logan is not a great "Comic Book Film " like the Avengers per se. , but its a "Great movie based around comic book characters " . Many people consider TDK more as a "crime drama" . In that sense "Logan" is a Road movie or a Western. The greatest thing about this film is that it hides the superhero/comic book feel so expertly within its fascinating story and its pacing .

    The story is pretty much the best ever put on film involving any Marvel characters. Logan and Prof. X are the most fleshed out you have ever seen on screen, finally justifying the quality of talent (Patrick Stewart & Hugh) that have been playing them. It envisions a post- mutant society where things are very bleak, and Jackman portrays all the anguish and weariness of his ageless logan to perfection. Nothing less than an oscar nomination is appropriate for what he has acheived.!!

    So does Stewart's performance deserve one. The Child actress playing the girl (Dafne Keen) is FABULOUS , in a role which could have ruined the whole film if she had sc**wed up. ! Very few child actresses have looked so natural in what is such a demanding(physically and emotionally) and mature role. !! There are no definitive villians here, more like circumstances .

    Not that the movie is all talk and drama, it may feel a bit slow for a Superhero film , but when action appears, it really is worth the money you pay , and that "R" rating . The action is frenetic and incredibly violent ! The movie almost has a tarantinoesque feel to it, the way the violence appears on screen. You are shocked to the core whenever a death occurs, its brutal and gut-wrenching (unlike most PG -13 films were most violence happens off-screen or is easily side-stepped). Compared to the usual Hollywood blockbusters where we pass of each onscreen death as easily as a scene cuts-to another, this film makes you "feel" for each person who dies. Even the more smaller characters who die, except maybe some bad guys (who are cut up like plenty . This leads to some truly emotional moments , which elevate this movie beyond typical action-fare.

    The movie has some really smart touches as well , in the action sequences as well as the humour which feels so natural. The director has done absolutely a fabulous job this time, and receives all plaudits for getting this movie made , even with a lot of initial reluctance from the studio.

    Overall Logan is an incredibe cinematic effort , that has elevated Comic-Book cinema beyond plain popcorn entertainment. It is a movie to be talked for years to come and will be the gold standard by which all serious comic book cinema will be judged by for time to come. If it doesn't win atleast a few oscars it 'll be a indictment of the academy's aversion to popular cinema.

    Just saw Logan. Absolutely brilliant. 2nd best superhero movie I've ever seen after The Dark Knight. It is understandable if people are saying it is better since everyone just recently saw it and the brilliance hasn't worn off however it is a level below The Dark Knight which I re watched for must be the 20th time, a week ago. Nevertheless, Logan is an example to Marvel, DC and some of their idiotic fans on what a real good superhero movie is. To be fair Marvel movies are very predictable but at least they are mildly entertaining. DC keeps making garbage like suicide squad and then the clueless fans defend it saying, "It was made for the comic book fans." I am a huge DC fan but a movie has to be a good movie first and foremost.

    Logan : 8.5/10 Brilliant movie. Watch it even if you aren't a fan of superhero movies or haven't seen any previous X-men movies.

    When The DK came out I watched it 2-3 times in the cinema and since then have watched it once. I get more of an urge to watch Batman Begins which I've seen like 10-15 times

    You won't be affected either way.. If you want to get all the easter eggs and finer details of the references I'd suggest a small watchthrough of the original X-men trilogy and the 2 solo outings of Wolverine.

    But even if you were an absloute novice to the Wolverine character, it'd make Zero difference to your enjoyment of this movie.. Its that engaging and so-self contained at the same time.. Catch it in IMAX if possible. It is not visually stunning like "Kong" but the visuals feel very much a part of the narrative, like a Tarantino film.. !

    They finally made a movie that does justice to the actual Wolverine character. Who was always the ultra-violent, conflicted and world weary character that he was in the comics, and not the kind of Leadership material goody - goody that the depict him as in the X-men movies.

    Agreed, I felt the solo movies did a better job depicting the layers to his character; in the trilogy he had to be slightly gimmicky I suppose to sell the x-men concept

    Guys watch the new Deadpool trailer. On the cinema behind the phonebooth it says "Playing now: Logan" which is a nod to this spectacular movie.


    On the phonebooth itself it says "Nathan Summers coming soon"


    For those who don't know Nathan Summers is the son of Scot Summers (Cyclops). Meaning that a Cyclops or Cable (Nathan) movie might be in the works.

    Not a bad movie. Didnt bore me but didn't interest me too much either. Perhaps because It has to do with fashion industry and was too girly for my liking. Meryl streep was good in it.

    I loved those movies! batman and batman returns were excellent, they arguably did the character as much justice as Nolan but Burton's release was a lot more influential in the depiction of Batman. I feel like the origin story told in Batman Begins is possibly the best for any superhero character the execution was brilliant; that movie has so much replay value. Affleck's solo Batman movie has a lot of potential, am so excited for it! although am not sure if he is going to direct it now but he is going to be involved in the project beyond just being the lead character

    Kong : Skull Island

    My Score : 8/10

    One of the best monster movies since Jurassic Park 2 ! .. Leaves Godzilla (2014) & Jurassic World (2015) in the dust !!

    One of the best looking films since Avatar !!

    Kong : Skull island, is a popcorn hollywood entertainer. Make no mistake. It is no Logan, nor does it try to be. But what it does is that , it tries to be far more smarter and well made than typical hollywood BoxOffice fare..

    The Hero of this movie is "Kong", all the oscar quality human cast is just making up the numbers. They have built the entire movie around him, as THE HERO of this film.. The first proper introduction of the giant Ape is done like how we usually introduce the hero in a typical South/Salman Khan potboiler film !! We are treated to scene after scene of Kond beating up the bad dudes (humans and other monsters) and we keep rooting for him !

    The plot is fairly basic, but there aren't many holes in the script, also there is an attempt to tie it to Godzilla (2014) so that WB can set up a "Monster Cinematic Universe " like the MCU and have a "Godzilla vs Kong" showdown in the future !..

    Samuel L. Jackson is pretty repetitive, still enjoyable as the Army general, Brie Larson (Oscar winner 2016) is wasted , so is Tom Hiddleston. There is the mandatory Chinese girl character, which is totally inconsequential, only done to ensure meet the criteria (Chinese co-production & Chinese acotrs) needed to get the movies released in China ! John C. Reilly hands down gets the best role, best lines and is the most interesting human character in the entire film !

    Coming to the best part of the film : The cinematography & CGI aka, the visuals !!
    This is HANDS DOWN the best looking film of the past few years and pretty much the most stunning imagery since we felt watching Dinosaurs for the first time in the first Jurassic Park. !

    Hiring a former indie filmamaker as director (Jordan Vogt-Roberts) surely helps, as he added some beautifully composed shots to this film.. As an aspiring photography enthusisast, I found many shots compelling , especially the ones involving Kong and the Sun !.. This is one movie YOU HAVE TO WATCH IN IMAX ! Totally worth the money you are gonna spend !

    Also the movie's story is connected to the Vietnam war, so there are many intentional references to the epic "Apocalypse Now", in many of the army scenes as well as the visual style !.

    The CGI is great , Kong is rendered in great detail by ILM, so are the other creatures, the fight scenes are superb ! Unlike the transformers films or godzilla , where we couldn't tell who was fighting who. CGI doesn't stick out in this film.. Which combined with the natural beauty of the scenery makes it a great watch. !

    Watch it if you want some well made & smart and funny "Paisa vasool" hollywood fun, or wait out for the next MCU superhero flick or a Michael Bay crapfest for overblown CGI !

    Agree with you @shaz619 on all points ! Burton's movie was an incredibly bold step. ! Batman begins was pretty great too and I believe its more satisfying to comic Batman lovers than TDK .. But TDK gave superhero films a kind of mainstream & critical acceptability that superhero films rarely got ..

    But I'm not sold on the Batman solo film though, I'd rather they do more Justice league films or WW sequels than ANOTHER BATMAN FILM.. !

    You could say that I suppose and it got that acceptability because it began to take a swim in waters beyond the superhero genre in addition to how good it was off course, Unbreakable is seen in the same vein by quiet a few as well although it is not as well known given that it was an original piece of work while Bats is a part of pop culture.

    I think it's exactly what we need if am honest, the market has become over-saturated with these gimmicky superhero teams/faction films I mean aren't people fed up of Avengers, Suicide Squad etc and now we have Justice League and Guardians of the Galaxy (this is a little bit of an exception as it's a bit different to the other movies I enjoy the comedic emphasis) around the corner as well. Solo films tend to allow for better character development with more depth given the focus on the lead, I tend to enjoy the narrative more as well; in movies where you have multiple leads and so much going on everything has to be perfect or it can all go so wrong as it did in suicide squad.

    It has also been almost a decade since the last bats movie so the timing is right, I hope that DC finally hit a home run with the bats solo release; barring their movies in animation the live action stuff has been very average while marvel have left them in the dust.

    So does Stewart's performance deserve one. The Child actress playing the girl (Dafne Keen) is FABULOUS , in a role which could have ruined the whole film if she had sc**wed up. ! Very few child actresses have looked so natural in what is such a demanding(physically and emotionally) and mature role. !! There are no definitive villians here, more like circumstances .

    Not that the movie is all talk and drama, it may feel a bit slow for a Superhero film , but when action appears, it really is worth the money you pay , and that "R" rating . The action is frenetic and incredibly violent ! The movie almost has a tarantinoesque feel to it, the way the violence appears on screen. You are shocked to the core whenever a death occurs, its brutal and gut-wrenching (unlike most PG -13 films were most violence happens off-screen or is easily side-stepped). Compared to the usual Hollywood blockbusters where we pass of each onscreen death as easily as a scene cuts-to another, this film makes you "feel" for each person who dies. Even the more smaller characters who die, except maybe some bad guys (who are cut up like plenty . This leads to some truly emotional moments , which elevate this movie beyond typical action-fare.

    The movie has some really smart touches as well , in the action sequences as well as the humour which feels so natural. The director has done absolutely a fabulous job this time, and receives all plaudits for getting this movie made , even with a lot of initial reluctance from the studio.

    Overall Logan is an incredibe cinematic effort , that has elevated Comic-Book cinema beyond plain popcorn entertainment. It is a movie to be talked for years to come and will be the gold standard by which all serious comic book cinema will be judged by for time to come. If it doesn't win atleast a few oscars it 'll be a indictment of the academy's aversion to popular cinema.
    Good post and agree with majority of what you've said but don't agree with Logan not being a "great comic book film" it's a BIG stereotype that comic books are made for kids entirely and are incredibly light in their tone, Wolverine is one of the darkest and grittiest of characters in the marvel universe and if you've read any of his graphic novels you'd see that the director did his origins justice and in the movie creators own words his vision was to "set frames that are descriptive, and evocative of comic-book panels" for Logan. There is no singular depiction of a particular character in comics, there are various incarnations which continue to evolve, TDK is often looked upon as taking a swim in waters beyond the "super-hero" genre when Nolan made heavy use of Frank Millers work but folk go on like his work was entirely an original piece; "comicy" does't = lightness, it can also be darkness when it comes to tone, depth and style.

    Going back to Logan I totally agree with your rating (although you really wanted to give it a 10 that strategic 0.4 added to the 9 tells me you are being cheeky again), the genre doesn't end and begin with TDK; we also forget that Toby Macguire's Spiderman was incredible although it was released a long time so people forget it a little. TDK had a lot going on, as a package it was a masterpiece; but no character in that movie for me is more compelling then Hugh Jackman in Logan so while you'd enjoy TDK Logan would have you a lot more emotionally invested in the lead, his performance is definitely worthy of an academy award. Patrick was brilliant no doubt! what an emotional roller coaster ride, was tearing up by the end it's the ultimate pay off but my only regret is that this movie is evidence of the potential they had with the Wolverine character in creating something very edgy so perhaps the previous two solo's could have been so much better.

    The action was simply outstanding! the fight scenes were brilliant! can't fault the director on any level, credit to the producers and writers as well they all did their bit to create a masterpiece.

    You've mentioned everything but have also forgotten a small detail that the budget was only around $100 million!!! it magnifies their accomplishments. Going to watch TDK again but won't be surprised if I find myself rating Logan above it.

    Saw the horror movie "get out". Really good movie. Refreshing to see something like this in a genre that barely has one decent movie a year now.

    Watch a couple of movies in last two nights

    The curious case of benjamin button
    6.5/10

    Found it a bit boring although it has to be said that it was well made. Maybe your views also depends on the mood you were in while watching such a movie.

    Manchester by the sea
    7.5/10

    A good family drama movie. I liked it.

    It will be better then the biggie biopic but don't have really high expectations! I think it will be decent at best, the NWA movie was taken a bit more seriously and the folk who it was based on were heavily involved in the project to make it as raw, edgy and realistic as possible.

    Am excited as well in that sense but the writers, producers and director are average with a weak CV

    It better be or we riot! Kenya reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in 2003 and George Foreman regained heavyweight championship of the world as a 45 year old which he had lost two decades earlier to Ali in the Rumble in the Jungle! as the commentator famously would say "IT HAPPENED!" So it's defo possible and am optimistic now thanks to you perhaps a bigger budget and higher profile will bring out the best in them

    Yes I agree it was a great movie but not strictly "horror" in the sense of the genre.

    More like a thriller exploitation type of movie.

    Wow Wow Wow

    Greatest X-Men film ever, Marvel's greatest film !.. Even though X-men is Fox's & not MCU ..

    Ties with TDK as the greatest comic book /superhero film ever (maybe even ahead of TDK) !

    Career best performance from Hugh Jackman (potential oscar nod - yeah, it's that good !) and best ever Prof. X from Patric Stewart !

    First of all, lemme get it out there, I'm hardcore DC. !! Bats, Sups and WW and JL beat the crap out of anything that Marvel has put out (I mean overall, Comics - Cartoons - Films ). Most marvel superheros were historically responses to the DC characters that came first (Batman-Iron man, Superman- Captian America, Deathstroke- Deadpool, JL- Avengers), which always gives the impression of them being under-powered imitations( generalization), EXCEPT when it came to THE XMEN !!!..

    The X-Men for me, make Marvel so great. They are not Superhero's like the rest, just evolved humans, and people hate them, are afraid of them . Which is basically what would happen to super-powered beings in the real world.!

    This grounded and in a way- realistic, depiction of powered beings is what made X-Men so riveting as a franchise.. and "Wolverine" is the de-facto X-men(man?) !. Pretty much marvel's greatest property alongside Spider-Man !.. Since Hugh IS "wolverine" his swan-song effort was always going to be hyped..

    But it has far exceeded anything that I expected. "The Wolverine" (2013) was a pretty satisfying solo movie, but many people found it boring (lack of action maybe ..). But this movie basically acheives what "Wolverine" tried to do but fell short at .

    First of all Logan is not a great "Comic Book Film " like the Avengers per se. , but its a "Great movie based around comic book characters " . Many people consider TDK more as a "crime drama" . In that sense "Logan" is a Road movie or a Western. The greatest thing about this film is that it hides the superhero/comic book feel so expertly within its fascinating story and its pacing .

    The story is pretty much the best ever put on film involving any Marvel characters. Logan and Prof. X are the most fleshed out you have ever seen on screen, finally justifying the quality of talent (Patrick Stewart & Hugh) that have been playing them. It envisions a post- mutant society where things are very bleak, and Jackman portrays all the anguish and weariness of his ageless logan to perfection. Nothing less than an oscar nomination is appropriate for what he has acheived.!!

    So does Stewart's performance deserve one. The Child actress playing the girl (Dafne Keen) is FABULOUS , in a role which could have ruined the whole film if she had sc**wed up. !

It is understandable if people are saying it is better since everyone just recently saw it and the brilliance hasn't worn off however it is a level below The Dark Knight which I re watched for must be the 20th time, a week ago. Nevertheless, Logan is an example to Marvel, DC and some of their idiotic fans on what a real good superhero movie is. To be fair Marvel movies are very predictable but at least they are mildly entertaining. DC keeps making garbage like suicide squad and then the clueless fans defend it saying, "It was made for the comic book fans." I am a huge DC fan but a movie has to be a good movie first and foremost.

    Logan : 8.5/10 Brilliant movie. Watch it even if you aren't a fan of superhero movies or haven't seen any previous X-men movies.

    You guys must MUST watch Life.

    Cannot emphasize how good of a movie it is - better than Logan IMO.

    Watch it and let me know what you thought!
