Hollywood connoisseurs knew they were in for something big last month with the release of Mad Max: Fury Road. All eyes were on the George Miller film that was made 30 years after the last Mad Max movie hit theatres. In an action-packed month of May, Hollywood witnessed the coming together of many genres in film making. While Mad Max promised intense, cut-throat action, there was sci-fi, horror, animation and a whole lot of other things in films. Let’s take a look at the best and worst of Hollywood in May!
Packed with unadulterated action, thrills that will give you the chills and twisted adventures, Mad Max Fury Road is THE film to watch, if you still haven’t. Supreme action sequences coupled with great camera work makes this film standout among the rest. There’s no reason why you shouldn’t watch this film.
Films like Tomorrowland are a perfect example of how science fiction can leave your jaw hanging. An exhilarating journey from the present to the future is what Tomorrowland promises and you will not be disappointed. Action, adventure, technology – the film has all the ingredients to make your movie watching experience an unforgettable one. Go watch Tomorrowland, today!
Hollywood has presented a lot of variety over the last month and Poltergeist is one of them. Rarely does a horror film scare the hell out of you. Few have been successful remakes of old films. Poltergeist is a remake of Tobe Hooper’s 1982 classic of the same name. Usually, you’d expect cliches in a typical horror film, but Poltergeist has plenty of unexpected things to offer. Who doesn’t love a genuinely scary horror film? Warning: This ain’t for the faint-hearted!
4. San Andreas
Destruction. Helicopters. Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Enough reasons to watch a film? If not, you should still go ahead and watch San Andreas. Because it is a thoroughly enjoyable ride from start to finish. The special effects are mind-numbing and the sheer scale of destruction leaves you speechless. Dwayne Johnson’s credibility as an actor is only going upwards by the day.
1. Playing It Cool
Starring Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan in lead roles, Playing It Cool is just another romantic comedy that lacks novelty. The film is enjoyable in places, but is full of familiar cliches.
2. The SpongeBob Movie
The Spongebob Movie: Sponge Out of Water is something that kids will enjoy to the fullest. Even for an adult, it is like revisiting their good old childhood. But for most part, The Spongebob Movie gets monotonous because of a weak storyline. Though, it can be a one-time watch.
3. Hot Pursuit
Unfortunately, the response to this film has been just the opposite of what the title suggests. Hot Pursuit isn’t really hot, the jokes are not funny and cringe-worthy. The film lacks the comic angle and is more painful than hilarious. Do not bother to watch this one.
How often does an Al Pacino film disappoint? Danny Collins is the story of a famous singer and how he deals with his problems and life in general. Al Pacino stars in the lead role and makes a decent job out of it. However, the film is dragged unnecessarily in the second half. If you like Al Pacino, this could be a one-time watch.
5. Big Game
Samuel L. Jackson playing the President in a film is certain to raise your expectations. But with Big Game, your expectations are bound to go down the drain. The film’s story sounds interesting, but is relatively weak in its execution. Sadly, Big Game isn’t really big.
The only good part about Maggie is perhaps its protagonist – Arnold Schwarzenegger. It is wonderful to see the Terminator take up a role that’s completely out of his forte. For a change, Arnold doesn’t play the badass robot and that’s where he impresses. The film is too slow for its pace. Contrary to what you think, there ain’t any zombies in this supposedly zombie flick.
Well, that was it for Hollywood! Which were your picks among these? Share with us in the comments section below.
