Third Anniversary

Two Sentence Story

Shuffling on the bed, my hand touched someone sleeping under a blanket. My heart started beating fast suddenly remembering that it was my wife’s third death anniversary the previous day, and I had forgotten to place a bunch of flowers upon her grave.

Rim of the World(2019) Netflix Movie Review:

I liked the movie and felt it was decent one.This one is a fun sci-fi movie about four kids who are on a mission to save the world from an alien attack. The cast was perfect and the sepcial effects were pretty good. Don’t expect this one to be like the ID or Stanger Things Series on Netflix and you will enjoy it. Also this one is a reminder of the classic movies which we have seen in the 70’s.This movie is directed by MCG of Terminator Salvation. It is a good movie from start to finish.

Ignore all the criticism on this movie, watch it and decide for yourself.

It was a good Sunday afternoon movie for me. It is pretty decent movie and it strays away from logic, but that is fine as this one is based on fiction.

My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.


Murder Mystery(2019) Netflix Movie Review:

 The script of the movie was quite good which deals with two aspects: While it deals with murder mystery and the second aspect is the marriage issue between Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. It is nice to see these together in a movie which has become rare now. Thoiugh the plus point is the murder mystery suspense that runs through the movie. The other good thing is the glamorous and exotic setting across Europe and aboard a nice Yacht that adds value to the movie.

The movie has Agatha Christie kinda mystery running through. As usual the chemistry between Adam and Jennifer is awesome. It has some pretty decent action scenes too.We don’t get to see movies like this any more, so it is fun.

My rating is 3/5. Recommended.


I am Mother (2019) Netflix Movie Review:

A teenage girl is raised underground by a robot “Mother” when human race has reached extinction. But their unique bond is disturbed when a stanger also another human being arrives.I felt the concept was rather unique. I mean the bonding between a very intelligient AI and a girl.

The movie is more of use your own imagination sort.The production design of the movie is really good. Clara Rugaard who plays Daughter, outshines Hilary Swank with ease.While the robot who plays mother and is voiced by Rose Byrne is mysterious and you start wondering what Mother’s actual intentions are?

Australian director Grant Sputore does decent job in his debutant venture. This one has decent pace, isn’t boring and is thought provoking science fiction thriller. I liked this one and would recommend it. My rating is 3.5/5.


Chopsticks (2019) Hindi Movie Review:

 It has been quite sometime since I last saw Abhay Deol’s movie. Mithila Palkar is natural and gets into the skin of the character.Abhay is wonderful too. It is also refreshing to see Vijay Raaz as Falyaaz Bhai. The goat named Bahubali is another character who is important to the story.The story is about a gifted but insecure young woman played by Mithila when she goes for a con played by Abhay who calls himself “The Artist” to get back her stolen car.

This one was one of the betetr movies on Netflix. Hope Netflix makes more such movies. I enjoyed this movie and some parts made me laugh and smile. The good thing about this movie is that it is a fresh breathe, though story is pretty simple.

Mithila’s action as an innocent girl is top notch and funny to watch, Abhay deol’s and Mithila’s small moments of chemistry are heart touching even though they aren’t romantic. I had seen one page ad in Times of India newspaper of previous day and decided to see it.It was worth my time and I even suggested my wife to see it.

All in all, a good one time watch. My rating is 3.5/5. Recommended.
