Finding Dory – Review

Swimming into the theater last week was the ever forgetful Finding Dory. Finding Dory tells a tale of Dory locating her long lost parents. As you may know, Dory has a short term memory lost. So the question would be is how could a person/fish forgets all the time even remember her own parents? Well, Disney has way on putting it and absolutely nailed it.

The Gist of It:

It all started with Dory herself being always forgetful. Dory has been special, unlike other fishes she always takes live where the waves takes her. But this time instead of riding the waves, Dory started swimming out herself looking for something. What could she be looking for? Her parents.

Dory has been always been forgetful so how could she even remember her parents. Well a knock on the head would help. Dory begin’s returning back to where she came from just following her inner Dory. So how a rather, she manages to get to that place but ofcourse with the help of Nemo and Marlin. Her Dory-ness shows her the way and with the help of her new found family, she only manage to find the place of where she came from – she manages to meet back her old friend, Destiny. Ofcourse along the way – she makes a new friend, Hank. Hank is a 9 armed Octopus.

Together with Marlin, Nemo, Hank and Destiny – Dory manages to find her home where she use to play and stay but only to find out that her parents are no longer there.

The Review

Before we tell you how is it, we would like to give a standing ovation to Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar Animation Studio for an outstanding animation movie. It had all the correct ingredients for a hearty movie.
Despite the original routine like the first movie they manage to elevated the movie to be watched not only by the young “Dory” but also for the adult “Dory”. Every character had it’s own function that some how rather that compliments the movie as a whole. In Finding Dory – every character has a fair amount of time and it still focuses on Dory’s mission to find her parents and every character has a purpose and message to get across to the audiences.
The movie tells us multiple messages such as the importance of family, never give up on your family and etc.
Usually a sequel movie don’t have that much of punch like the first movie – this franchise has broken that stigma. Totally jumping out of the water and into another pile of water but with new environment.
A must watch movie and not to be missed.

The Conjuring 2 – Review

After the successful first movie, James Wan returns again with another spinal chilling movie. The Conjuring which is based on true event was reinvented by Wan again to bring the incidents to life. Well did he brought the movie to life again like he did the first movie? Lets be honest, the first movie was so scared that you didn’t want to do the laundry again. Could The Conjuring 2 live up to first movie level? Let’s find out.

The Gist of It:

Lorraine Warren and Ed Warren returns back doing what they do best. But this time their case takes them to old London. This took them out of their Amityville incident that was widely publicized and almost destroyed them.
The Warren’s took a sabbatical and traveled straight to Enfield and met with Hodgson’s. Their assignment was only observing and report back to the church.

The attacks begun on Janet and demon seems to leach on to her. She hear voices telling what to do and at night she sleep walks. But the the worst happens when this attack started to go a little wild. It starts attacking the rest of the family. When Mrs Hodgson’s call the police –  it made a mockery out of them. That’s when they knew had to call a professional.

The arrival of the Warren’s did shaken the demon a little but only step up it’s game. It continued it’s attack on the children and made a believer of others.

But what started out as just pure observation turned out to be as personal mission for both of them. This however was an issue for Lorrainne. Few years back, Lorrainne had prophesy and it was about a death. A death that would most certain break Lorrainne. She saw how Ed died and that has been haunting her ever since. So between their personal mission to identify the demon that has surrounded the Hodgson’s and saving Ed, she was in between.

Review:

We know what is everyone’s question. Was it better than the first movie? James Wan has definitely challenge himself this time with the case that Lorrainne still keeps her up till this day. This case really brought in alot of attention and to one level even the Warren’s doubted the Hodgson’s but how James Wan crafted it was like a 3 layer chocolate cake. What we liked was how Wan stayed to much to the original event. Trying to
Unlike the first movie, the location of where this took place wasn’t your usually deep in the forest, far from people, or history of murdered people, NO! This happens right in the smack of town where there is neighbours, dogs taking a dump at the front yard and your ex-husband living just block away with his new twin kids. The scare was not made up but rather of what happen, a demon was attacking regular family.

Moving on the script, the camera play was something different. Nothing we expected from Wan. You can thank Don Burgess –  who collaborate in this film. The way the Nun came out of life from the picture – till now still scare us and we hated Don for that.

We can’t say it was better than the first movie just because the second movie is in it’s on league by itself. The concept and direction was different in which we like about it. Wan didn’t stick to regular horror movie stigma and change it accordingly. All we can say it, don’t watch it alone and don’t watch it at night.

P/s: Patients with weak heart are recommend not to watch this movie.

 

Rematch of Hulk and ….

The ever so angry Hulk might finally have a rematch with Loki on the upcoming Thor 3: Ragnorak. This comes after star Tom Hiddleston who is Loki in the Marvel movies hint details on the battle during a panel at the Wizard World event in Philadelphia. He also tells that how excited he is to  be Loki again and that his character is even “trickier” than ever.

In the first Avenger movie we saw how Hulk trashed the ever so cunning Loki without even breaking a sweat. Many fans has was disappointed when Hiddleston announce his premature retirement from the Marvel world after the Thor 2. However earlier this year Hiddleston retracted that statement.
