Chappie – Review

“Humanity’s last hope isn’t human,” that’s the movie tagline. In a not so long future, where human are incapable to fight the high rate of crime – they turn to droids to fight for them. Just a time-bomb ready to explode.

Why Chappie?

Plot
South Africa police force is the first have a Droid police force. It was so effective that the crime rate drop at astonishing rate until the police decided to order more droids. The most happiest person for this success would be Deon Wilson(Deve Patel) the designer of the droid. But Deon has not reached the climax of his success. He is trying to design the first ever Droid with artificial intelligent that could feel and learn and on day 9oo hundred plus, he got it.
He was in the midst of his experiment when Yolandi, Ninja and America decides to kidnap him. However the kidnap idea was thrown out immediately when they found the Droid that Deon was about experiment on. The trio forced Deon to install the program and Chappie was born.

Yolandi role was change from a crazy drug dealer with bad hair cut to a robot Mumi. Yolandi from a mental drug dealer became Papa and Deon is the Creator. Chappie starts learning on world from this group of people.

Chappie is Gangster and Chappie wanna bust a screw

BoView
Neill Blomkamp returns with yet another questionable movie. To be honest, Elysium made more sense compared to Chappie. The idea is there, a robot that has feeling that would protect the humans being … wait isn’t there a movie with similar idea? Bicentennial Man, I, Robot? Why Neill, why?
Chappie to be honest is a very amateurish directed. It didn’t have enough storyline. The plot is there but the way the plot is told made was disappointing. They had Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver for crying out-loud but totally wasted. These actors were making small talks and it was just pointing back to how the script were not thought thoroughly.
Hugh Jackman is already intimidating but they just left it as such and not giving a proper thought to his character and so was Dev Patel. It’s like Neill paid these actors to just be themselves.

The Night at the Museum : The Secret of the Tomb – Review

Bring your little ones along to catch this in cinemas on the 25th of December 2014!

Bring your little ones along to catch this in cinemas on the 25th of December 2014!

There’s only 2 reasons you can possibly have to watch this. 1.You wish to see Robin Williams’ last on-screen role before his passing OR 2.You are accompanying a child to watch it.

The “The Secret of the Tomb” is the 3rd installment of the “Night at the Museum” series. Rated as a PG-13 movie, “The Secret of the Tomb” remains a light-hearted family comedy suitable for all ages (especially toddlers). Besides boasting a star-studded cast that includes the likes of Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Robin Williams, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, “The Secret of the Tomb” is also filled with CGI-effects that would leave your child in awe.

Plot Synopsis

Larry & his historical friends.

Larry & his historical friends.

Our favourite museum night guard, Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) & his beloved group of walking, talking museum friends are back for another adventure and this time around, they’re going to London. Things don’t go as planned during the opening of New York’s Planetarium as the museum pieces start to lose control of themselves during their opening entertainment show for the people of New York, which we soon discover is because of the Magical Egyptian Tablet that has brought all the museum pieces to life is slowly deteriorating.

Running away from... Trixy.

Larry & the gang are then forced to travel to the London museum as he finds out that Ahkmenra’s father may know know how to help them. As he enters the British Museum of Natural History, the magic of the tablet begins to give life to the museum leading to a whole new set of problems. With a little help from some ‘new’ friends, they must race against the clock to repair the magic tablet before Larry loses his museum friends forever.

De-views
(De-views are my personal views in a completely honest manner, purely my own preferences and no one elses.)

Ben Stiller plays a 2nd role as a neanderthal called Laaa, a well acted comedic role that is similar to his hilarious characters in Zoolander, Starsky & Hutch & Tropic Thunder(They’re all absolutely hilarious movies by the way). The funniest scene in an otherwise mildly entertaining comedy has to be the guest appearances of Hugh Jackman & Alice Eve. A rather emotional speech by Teddy Roosevelt (Robin Williams) towards the end of the movie will definitely resonate with the audience in relation to his passing in August.

All in all, Night at the Museum : The Secret of the Tomb is a, dare I say, failed attempt to replicate the success of it’s very first installment. Filled with reused & cheesy jokes that would probably be humorous to children under the age of 13. Unfortunately, it looks like there’s a possibility of continued attempts of milking this franchise as you’d soon see at the end of the movie. Not exactly sure where the lightly implied homosexuality between the roman general and the cowboy fit into the target audience of children but I suppose that’s for the grown-ups accompanying the child. I cannot stress this enough, this is a movie for children not adults. Oh wait, maybe a date movie. MAYBE.
Either way, I’ll rate this movie as an adult so it’s a 3 out of 10.

Oh and not forgetting the dearly departed, Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Your spark of life will always be missed.
