Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis in a political satire. What could be giddily funnier than that? Both comedians, when given a richly developed character, are thigh-slapping hilarious. Take Due Date and Semi-Pro or Anchorman. Pit these two guys against each other as political rivals for US.Congress, then it becomes a dream comedy for fans of Ferrell and Galiafanikis. With the baby-punching in the trailer, though, you get a little worried that maybe that's the best that they've got to offer, but US Politics with idiots as rivals played by really talented actors? That's a great material right there. The odds of a failure here is almost nil. 

But then, shockingly, The Campaign, directed by Jay Roach (Little Fockers)...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
 
 
A great kiddie movie can entertain anybody, from a grandma right down to a grade-schooler. From a pony-tailed film snob down to the happy-go-lucky mainstream moviegoer, because an excellent storytelling is an excellent storytelling! Simple as that. Regardless of the target audience.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, the third installment of the Wimpy movie franchise based on the bestselling book series by Jeff Kinney, is my first introduction to the popular world of the wimpy hero, Greg Heffley (Zachary Gordon). But after I left the cinema, I was not converted to the Cult of the Wimpy Kid.

In Dog Days, summer vacation has finally started and Wimpy Greg, who is not really wimpy in the pure sense of the word, is excited to spend the summer playing video games with his major crush, Holly (Peyton List) because, well, he's the "indoor type." Unfortunately, his father (Steve Zhan), the genuine wimp in this kiddie tale, forces Greg...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
A spin-off of the Matt Damon Bourne trilogy, The Bourne Legacy introduces a new hero, Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), one of the genetically enhanced agents of a U.S. top-secret intelligence program called "Outcome," quite similar to Jason Bourne's program, Treadstone. When the ops head, Retired Col. Eric Byer (Edward Norton), decided to shut down Program Outcome with a seemingly shallow reason, he immediately wants all the agents dead—  nope, not issued a termination slip and given new identities, but instantly dead, along with the oblivious team of scientists who support the Program. And so we follow Aaron Cross as he escapes to save his life— and get his fix of the blue and green pills that make him a super-soldier, with the help of scientist Dr. Marta Shearing (Rachel Weisz). And all these events, according to the meticulous followers of the Bourne series, take place during Jason Bourne's exploits in Bourne Identity andSupremacy.

Directed and co-written by Tony Gilroy (Michael Clayton, Duplicity), The Bourne Legacy, when stripped off its lengthy spy talks filled with spy jargon that keep the audience in the dark, is basically nothing but ...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
When the movie trailer opened with no sound except for that sole, clear, angelic voice of the boy singing the national anthem, then transitioning into a sinister rumble, serious and ominous, the low pounding escalating into some kind of chaos...and then we catch sight of the Caped Crusader in what would be revealed as the epic conclusion of the Batman trilogy, you just know-- that the Dark Knight will rise above all the superheroes who recently graced the big screen. And so you wait with pure excitement. That kind of restless anticipation. Because you just know it's going to be so, so good just by that teaser trailer alone.

And then the day came to finally watch. After finishing the two-hour-and-a-half epic finale, it turns out you were right. Christopher Nolan has rewarded your very high expectations.

In this emotionally gripping and intellectually satisfying epic finale, Gotham City is at peace time, and Bruce Wayne/Batman (Christian Bale) is in seclusion for eight years now; bearded, depressed, and lethargic. People are curious; where is the billionaire Mr. Wayne? And people are talking. Batman had murdered the city's hero Harvey Dent eight years ago, didn't he? He's a fugitive now. Gone. A legend. Then a beautiful cat burglar (Anne Hathaway) arrives, waking Mr. Wayne from his stupor...and then a big storm starts  brewing... (READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
To Channing-lusting females, sexually frustrated housewives, gays, and closeted strippers, Magic Mike could be the answer to your fantasies. You don't have to visit a male strippers club—  just go to your nearest cinema for a generous sight of gyrating beefcakes, even if it's only in 2D.

Generating a ripple effect of female hysteria, Magic Mike seems to be the hottest and much-talked about movie in town, even by straight males. But if you're seeking for fun and entertainment that is beyond hot males grinding their pelvis—i.e., the story—then there's nothing in it.

Marketed as light and fun, the movie is actually more of a drama. Mike (Tatum) is an ageing superstar male stripper at Xquisite Club owned by Dallas (Mathhew McConaughey). The movie establishes early on that Tatum is a wise, responsible guy, so don't judge him! He is only using his sexy gig to save up for his real dream and ambition: furniture-making. But Mike's well-laid plains might just go wrong when he accidentally meets a 19-year-old unmotivated Calvin Klein model-lookalike, Adam/"The Kid" (Alex Pettyfer), and recruits him as a stripper under his wings—  and promising...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
From the producer of 2012 Oscar Best Picture The Artist comes another hit French film that broke box office records in France and across Europe, going down in history as one of the most successful French movies of all time.

The Intouchables, based on a true story, focuses on the unlikely and touching friendship of an extremely rich disabled man and his ex-con Sengalese caregiver from the ghettos. Philippe (François Cluzet), a bored tetraplegic who lives in a mini castle in Paris, hires Driss (Omar Sy), a crass and vulgar black man who has no intentions of getting the job in the first place. And so we follow how two men from entirely different worlds find joy in each other's company...and making a huge difference in each other's lives....(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
The concept that the 16th American president was a vampire hunter is already a dubious entertainment material-- if not laughable. Especially when the story is delivered in a serious, historical manner. But the novel, on which this movie is based, has actually garnered positive reviews-- and followers. And with Tim Burton producing the movie version, I guess no one should underestimate the power of imagination and creativity and give this--*guffaws*--Abraham-Lincoln-with-a-secret-life-slaying-bloodsuckers a chance.


In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, America is occupied by the living and the dead. Abe (Benjamin Walker) is confronted with this fact when he found out that it was actually a vampire that killed his mother. And so he not only becomes bent on ending slavery, but also becomes determined to avenge his mother's death and kill...(READ FULL REVIEW
 
 
Do you think you need to watch a Spider-Man reboot? Is it even necessary? Only five years have passed since the end of Sam Raimi'sSpider-Man movie trilogy and yet the Marvel superhero's story starts all over again on the big screen-- this time lanky British actor Andrew Garfield (The Social NetworkNever Let Me Go) replacing Tobey Maguire as the webslinger.

In The Amazing Spider-Man, we are told an already familiar story: how Spider-Man came to be...only this time, we are provided with more details. Seventeen-year-old social outcast Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield), orphaned at such a young age, grew up with his uncle (Martin Sheen) and aunt (Sally Field) in a quiet suburban neighborhood...but his past is kept a secret from him. One day, Peter...(READ FULL REVIEW)
 
 
Maybe you love musical films and you've seen every one of them that has ever been made. Maybe you're a fan of 80's music and you wanna reminisce. Maybe Tom Cruise playing a rock star is a compellingly curious thing. Whatever your reason is, Rock of Ages, based on the 2006 Broadway jukebox musical of the same name, is on your must-see list. 

So, what to expect?

Essentially, the movie is about young love in the midst of a Rock 'n' Roll Era-- but sidetracked by many subplots. With a central story similar to 2010's Burlesque (Christina Aguilera), Rock of Ages is about Sherrie (Julianne Hough), a small-town girl and aspiring singer who...(READ FULL REVIEW)
