Marvel's Captain America: Civil War


Synopsis: Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War picks up where “Avengers: Age of Ultron” left off, as Steve Rogers leads the new team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. After another international incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability and a governing body to determine when to enlist the services of the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers while they try to protect the world from a new and nefarious villain. [Source: Golden Village]


A successful movie pitting the good superheroes against each other. On one side we have the mild mannered Captain America, and the other, we have the egoistic Iron Man. When super powers clashed, expect lots of park and humour, and casualty too. Overall, not a bad movie though.

Disney's The Jungle Book


Synopsis: “The Jungle Book” is an all-new live-action epic adventure about Mowgli (newcomer Neel Sethi), a man-cub raised in the jungle by a family of wolves, who embarks on a captivating journey of self-discovery when he’s forced to abandon the only home he’s ever known. [Source: Golden Village]


Not a bad movie, with stunningly realistic graphics of the animals that they seem real, setting a new standard for CGI. The pace was captivating, with adventures after adventures of the child. I am really impressed with the acting skill of someone so young in front of the blue screen. A must watch for the week.

Disney's Zootopia


Synopsis: The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

This is so much better than my last movie "Batman Vs Superman". Highly entertaining, engaging with deep family values. No wonder it attains 98% on Rotten Tomatoes. Fully recommended. The song "Try Everything" by Shakira is nice too!

Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice


Synopsis: Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City’s own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis’s most revered, modern-day saviour, while the world wrestles with what sort of hero it really needs. And with Batman and Superman at war with one another, a new threat quickly arises, putting mankind in greater danger than it’s ever known before. [Source: Golden Village]


This movie is beyond any of my words. This is indeed the most confusing, boring and worst of the super heroes movie I had ever seen. I made no head or tail why would batman harbor ill feelings towards superman at the start. I made no head or tail why the world is debating do we need a superman. I made no head or tail how did Wonder Women fits into the story. The bad guy is just plain irritating in this movie. Scriptwriter, please do not ever attempt to make good superheroes pit against each other ever again. This is just so wrong.

Deadpool


Synopsis: Based upon Marvel Comics' most unconventional anti-hero, DEADPOOL tells the origin story of former Special Forces operative turned mercenary Wade Wilson, who after being subjected to a rogue experiment that leaves him with accelerated healing powers, adopts the alter ego Deadpool. Armed with his new abilities and a dark, twisted sense of humor, Deadpool hunts down the man who nearly destroyed his life. [Source: Golden Village]


If you want me to describe my feeling after watching the movie, I will sum it up as completely boring, nonsense, unhero-like, nothing in the plot except seeing people being chop off, vaguer languages and some x-rated stuffs. I seriously don't understand what is the hype about this movie. I will recommend putting this movie off your watch list.

No Longer Heroine


Synopsis: Hatori Matsuzaki (Mirei Kiritani) is a female high school student. She has a crush on her childhood friend Rita Terasaka (Kento Yamazaki) and believes he will eventually choose her as her heroine, but Rita Terasaka begins dating Miho Adachi. Meanwhile, the most popular male student, Kosuke Hiromitsu (Kentaro Sakaguchi) takes an interest in Hatori Matsuzaki. [Source: Golden Village]


A light-hearted comedy based on the Japanese manga "Heroine Shikkaku" (ヒロイン失格). According to review, this movie top another famous movie "Attack on Titan: End of the World" during its second week of release. I must say the feat attained speak for itself. While Attack on Titan movie was poorly done, this "Heroine" was fun to watch, humorous at times and keep audiences on the edge guessing what is this "heroine" up to next. Definitely a good movie not to be miss.

Rate: 7.5/10
