Bumblebee (2018) Review

Bumblebee, (otherwise called Transformers: Bumblebee), is a 2018 American sci-fi activity film fixated on the Transformers character of a similar name. It is the 6th portion of the true to life Transformers film arrangement. Created as a side project and prequel, it was later proclaimed a reboot of the establishment.


Coordinated by Travis Knight and composed by Christina Hodson, the film stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., John Ortiz, Jason Drucker, and Pamela Adlon and stars Dylan O'Brien (as the title character), Angela Bassett, Justin Theroux, and Peter Cullen in voice jobs.


It was Knight's initially true to life movie, just as the primary surprisingly realistic Transformers movie not to be coordinated by Michael Bay, who rather goes about as a maker. Head photography on the film started on July 31, 2017, in Los Angeles and San Francisco, California.


Bumblebee debuted in Berlin on December 3, 2018, and was dramatically delivered in the United States on December 21, 2018, and netted $468 million around the world, turning into the most reduced earning film in the establishment yet at the same time a film industry achievement. The film got the most elevated applause from pundits of all movies in the arrangement, adulating the activity groupings, and Steinfeld's exhibition, just as the 1980s setting and feeling of sentimentality.

Knight and Day (2010) Review


Knight and Day is a 2010 American action comedy film directed by James Mangold and starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. The film was the second on-screen collaboration of Cruise and Diaz, following the 2001 film Vanilla Sky.
Diaz plays June Havens, a classic car restorer who unwittingly gets caught up with the eccentric secret agent Roy Miller, played by Cruise, who is on the run from the CIA.
The film's investors offset funding costs by paying Cruise a lower advance fee and providing him a share of revenue only after the financiers were repaid their investment in the production. Filming took place in several locations, mainly in several cities located in Massachusetts, while other scenes were filmed in Spain and parts of Austria.
Knight and Day was released in the United States on June 24, 2010. The film received mixed reviews from film critics, with praise for the performances of Cruise and Diaz but criticism was aimed at its script. It grossed over $261 million worldwide, recouping its $117 million budget.
The film was remade in Bollywood as Bang Bang!, released October 2, 2014, with Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles.

Watchmen (2009) Review


Watchmen is a 2009 American neo-noir superhero film based on the 1986–87 DC Comics limited series of the same name by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Directed by Zack Snyder, it stars an ensemble cast of Malin Åkerman, Billy Crudup, Matthew Goode, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Patrick Wilson.
A dark and dystopian deconstruction of the superhero genre, the film is set in an alternate history in the year 1985 at the height of the Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, as a group of mostly retired American superheroes investigates the murder of one of their own before uncovering an elaborate and deadly conspiracy, while their moral limitations are challenged by the complex nature of the circumstances.
From October 1987 until October 2005, a live-action film adaptation of the Watchmen series became stranded in development hell. Producers Lawrence Gordon and Joel Silver began developing the project at 20th Century Fox, later moving it to Warner Bros. Pictures, the sister company of Watchmen publisher DC Comics, and hiring director Terry Gilliam, who eventually left the production and deemed the complex comic "unfilmable".
During the 2000s, Gordon and Lloyd Levin collaborated with Universal Pictures, Revolution Studios and Paramount Pictures to produce the film. Directors David Hayter, Darren Aronofsky and Paul Greengrass were attached to the project before it was cancelled over budget disputes. In October 2005, the project returned to Warner Bros., where Snyder was hired to direct.
Paramount remained as its international distributor, whereas Warner Bros. would distribute the film in the United States. However, Fox sued Warner Bros. for copyright violation arising from Gordon's failure to pay a buy-out in 1991, which enabled him to develop the film at the other studios. Fox and Warner Bros. settled this before the film's release, with Fox receiving a portion of the gross.
Principal photography began in Vancouver, September 2007. As with his previous film 300, Snyder closely modelled his storyboards on the comic, but chose not to shoot all of Watchmen using green screens and opted for real sets instead.

Bhoothnath Returns (2014) Review


Bhoothnath Returns (The Lord of Ghosts Returns) is a 2014 Indian Hindi-language supernatural political comedy film directed by Nitesh Tiwari and produced by Bhushan Kumar. A sequel to 2008 film Bhoothnath, the film revolves around Bhoothnath (Amitabh Bachchan) who is mocked in a Bhoothworld for his inability to scare children before being sent back to Earth to redeem himself. The film was released on 11 April 2014.[3][4]
Election Commission of India demanded tax-free status for Bhoothnath Returns, stating, "The state governments should support the strong social message that emanates from the film.
Granting tax-free status to this film would make people aware about their rights as voters like making voter ID cards or not treating polling day as holiday". The Uttar Pradesh Government has declared tax-free status to film on 30 April 2014.
The plot is linked with the previous film Bhoothnath. When Bhoothnath, although his real name in the two films is Kailash Nath, (Amitabh Bachchan) enters the Bhoothworld, (a ghosts' world) he is mocked and questioned about his abilities as a ghost as he was unsuccessful to scare any child. To redeem himself, he returns to India where he tries his best to scare children but is unsuccessful with his attempts as children have become strong physically and mentally and verbally.
However, a boy named Akhrot (Parth Bhalerao) can see him in his true form. Akhrot is not scared of Bhoothnath but helps him to scare a few children. In return, he asks Bhoothnath to act scared of him and to run away from a haunted house while he chants mantras in front of his friends, so that his friends can accept him in their cricket team.
