Watched Batman again on oled. 

What a beautiful movie. Liked it even more on a re-watch. 

I think the only issue I had with it was even with how awesome it was, the penguin chase scene had Batman showing blatant disregard for human life. 

I don't think the plot armour is an issue. Batman has always had impenetrable plot armour across all mediums. 

 

 

Multiverse of Madness was also pretty fun. The story is dumb as sh*t but the movie just goes wild with the visuals and action. 

This has to be the most violent MCU movie so far. I think it's the first time we actually see blood in MCU.

Yup. Not an easy watch, and the reality is more gruesome than depicted. 

No justice for the KPs till Bitta Karate is behind bars. 

How are you sure that what is depicted is real ?

The movie very conveniently leaves out a lot of things which happened then - like which party was ruling in the center that time (Hint - Same party is in power right now ) . I can understand if the ruling party was unable to stop the exodus as it has been years in the making but at least they could have helped relocate the KP's better. ( They did nothing btw) 

The events depicted in last scene happened in 2003 . No points for guessing who was in power in centre then and what action they took ( Nothing ) . 

I can post many videos from youtube exposing the hypocrisy of the directors and the actors of the above movie and their "Agenda" . Also the fact that these people want movie to be tax free - yet oppose free screening for poor people / haven't donated a penny from earnings of the movie for helping KP's .

Ohh yeah there should also be a Gujarat files movie showing events of Godhra riots of 2002 - but wait there was one in 2006/07 . Funny enough the movie was not allowed to screen in many parts of India including Gujarat .

It's obviously very sad what happened . But please don't believe everything shown in the movie to be the truth . 

Regarding Justice - it's not just KP's tragedy which hasn't received it. Many other tragedies in India itself haven't got the justice it deserves .

Do I need to watch any movies before Chip n Dale 2022 to understand most of the references in it or is it not necessary? I heard it has a way better detective story than The Batman and it has been a while since I have seen a fun animated movie, but I am not sure how much the references will get in the way of enjoying the story.

 

By the way, saw Akira Kurosawa's High and Low. Really enjoyed it. His films are always timeless.

PVR IMAX Noida prices for Jurassic Park are 840 for normal tickets, and 1240 for recliner. 

what the f**k has happened to PVR pricing? Is it just me who thinks these are insane prices ? Worst is almost all these seats get full ! 

Is that for a monthly subscription? :rofl:
Makes sense why stock price of PVR has increased. I refuse to pay more than 200 for a ticket.

Finally saw 'RRR' on zee5 yesterday.  One of the best superhero movie from Indian cinema :thumbsup:

 

Superpowers:

- superhuman strength, able to lift heavy objects (ex: 20s motorbike) spin it and throw it with ease.  The Brute strength is such that one of them can rip apart a prison door with bare hands.

- rapid healing, From lashes to bone crushing injuries to stabs to the heart, the heroes get over them very fast and are full ready to take on the next challenge.

- no need of nutrition, One of the heroes has the ability to maintain six pack abs , do pull ups even after being starved for weeks.

- singing/dancing in perfect rhythm/synchronisation.

Lol, the last one is not a superpower though.

If it's a streaming service is the quality and HDR good?

I generally download blu ray remuxes. 

Although for this one only HBO max rip was available. 

HBO max rips are pretty good in general. Although the one I downloaded didn't have DV which was disappointing. 

Quality is pretty solid tbh. Key difference vs blu ray would be in audio which I won't notice anyways because I don't have home theater system.

How big in size are these rips? For good quality i mean, i see ones that are like 10gb marked as 4k bluray rips.

Good blu ray remux is normally around 50-60 Gb. The HBO max rip I downloaded is 30 ish gigs.

Remux means uncompressed Blu-Ray files. They're always huge in size, even the 1080p versions. 4K versions are usually above 55 GB, some movies cross 80 GB and even 100 GB.

 

HBO Max 4K rips are usually between 22 to 32 GB (good range for 4K without sacrificing much quality) and they're VERY good video wise. Audio however isn't that good. Maybe it got better with The Batman, but I don't remember it being much different from other HMax movies.

 

Amazon rips are better audio wise because I never noticed much difference between their E-AC3 and lossless audio streams. Same with Disney+. It's only HMax where the audio sucks for some reason.

Saw Jersey - Hindi version on Netflix. The story tries to be inspiring but the plot doesn’t make any sense. The lack of communication was the real villain of the movie. If only the hero had some genuine conversations with his family and coach, all his problems would have been solved, but no, he had to be angry all the time and do stupid things to prove his greatness. The end reveal felt hollow because of how the scene was setup. Direction could have been better.

Not a politics thread so will only make quick points.

OK if the movie leaves out some things, how does that make what is depicted not true? Unless we are saying testimonies from the KPs themselves are false, then there is nothing that can be discussed further.

Did nothing allegation is also false. Article 370 removal itself is something which many thought downright impossible. Migrant colonies are another example. Of course, they could've and should've done far far more, but still remain better in this regard than any other party. Politics is always game of best out of bad choices.

Again, even if the director is of a particular political persuasion (like a majority of bollywood leans to the other side), does that make the events in the film untrue? Neither does not making the movie free. They could've, sure, maybe even should've, but still that doesn't make anything untrue.

No issues with any movie on Gujrat riots, and some have already been made, but just please do start with the Godhra train burnings- the thing that sparked it all. Woh conveniently ya toh gloss over ho jaata hai, quick snippet main dikha diya jata hai without even showing who did it and how it was done etc. ya phir bullshit peddle kiya jata hai ki 'spontaneous' fire lag gaya tha.

 

My general point is, why demean the pain of KPs or do 'whataboutery'? Left-leaning and showing muslim side movies are dime a dozen. Ek movie bani hai toh itna pain hai sabko (not a comment on you individually, but on general discourse).
