Kgf 2

It surpasses the first part. Watched with full house in PVR and there was so much hooting and whistling whole movie. Full on entertainment. No wonder there are rumours makers are thinking of making part 3.

Dr. Strange ticket prices are insane. IMAX 3D in South Delhi going for 900 bucks and normal going for 600, i.e. before any fees.

And still the seats are getting filled.

Ek hi movie se covid loss squeeze kar lenge yeh, this was not even the case with Spiderman.

 

Better buy PVR stock.

Kubrick bullied that chick so hard, she literally went into lifelong depression after the movie. But goddamn what a performance. 

Bruh she looked terrorised even when things were fine, you could totally see a crazy Bill Burr's father type guy going off on her. They absolutely nailed the casting.

The book is extremely chilling and goose bump inducing compared to the movie. From the description of Overlook hotel to all its infamous rooms and corridors, and later half portraying his slow descent into madness. King also hates the movie because it makes big departures (including the ending) from the book. I'd suggest getting an audiobook if you can, its well worth it.

Thanks. Added sample to library. The few times I've tried audiobooks I haven't really liked them and stopped. Let's see if this one keeps me hooked.

Watch the sequel Doctor Sleep as well. Its climax kinda sucked but I thought it was really good otherwise.

Go for the director's cut, which I read is a little better than the theatrical one.

 

Will check it out, thanks.

Did you figure out the actress who played the old woman?

 

Spoiler

Not while watching.

I could tell that those oldies were just younger people in makeup, and the woman somehow seemed oddly familiar. So I checked online to see who the actress really was and found out that it was the leading lady, Mia Goth, herself :P

Pretty cool.

 

I also read that they've already finished filming a prequel with her. Looking forward to that.

Apparently its teaser was shown after the credits in theaters.

Finally got around to watching Dune - a fantastic movie. Was glued to seat from start till end. Even my parents found it intriguing till the end. Outstanding work by DV as usual

There's a 20-odd minute 'making of' video of The Batman also available on Apple TV.

 

BTW, quick question (OT): Somehow I'm not getting the option to add credit/debit card information on my Apple ID. The only options I get as Payment Methods are UPI and Netbanking. And through those options, to add funds to the Apple Wallet.

 

Spoke to Apple support. The chat-advisor wasn't able to fix it and asked me to call.

 

Has Apple removed the option to add credit/debit cards entirely? If so, I can't seem to find any news about it.

Yup they did. Add funds to apple and subscribe from there. 
 

Happened with the new regulations from RBI. Apple sent mails informing to add funds through apple id if you want to pay for any of the services as the cards may get declined.

I found it when i was browsing through IMDB but you really cant tell it was her. 
 

I feel this works good enough for a standalone movie. Making it a franchise is a  dumb move.

Related: how does it compare to the book? 

 

One of the few examples where the movie deviates from the book a lot - and they're both awesome. Kind of like Jurassic Park. 

Def do recommend reading the book still as its one of King's best.

Also, apparently a sequel is already in development. 

 

 

Oh fantastic. I love these Poirot movies eagerly waiting for the next one.

Finally saw the batman yesterday. Aesthetic and all was great, the movie was a good crime movie but a poor batman movie. Robert Pattinson looks fine as Batman, but holy cow batman was behaving completely out of character. Forget the bullet sponge thing, when did batman start holding a candle and lead people in a dandi march and  getting pics clicked publically:mellow:

That's why I prefer watching in second week when IMAX prices are back to regular ones.

That was a literal 'beacon of hope' metaphor.

That seemed pretty odd for batman tbh. Also batman was getting his a*s whooped dealing with 4-5 guys, fighting like an amateur, Knocking on doors to enter places etc. Just seemed out of character for him.

Dont get me wrong, the movie is nice. Enjoyable, in fact enjoyed it a lot more than NWH (which i felt was okay at best). Robert Pattinson is also fine as Batman. Just the batman acted really out of character.

I get where your views are coming from and this one’s surely different from the other mainstream batman we have seen until now but i guess Matt Reeves has his own vision regarding portrayal of dark knight.

Batman was an idiot in this movie. There are enough scenes which clearly demonstrate that. Just that they were shot well and with great blacks, people are enjoying them.
