Big Hero 6 Movie Review

Big Hero 6 Movie Review

Feb 10, 2015

Big Hero 6 is no doubt one of the most anticipated Disney movies of the year 2014. It was released in United States of America on 7th November 2014. So what actually is Big Hero 6 about? The movie is based on Marvel’s Big Hero 6, a comic book series released somewhere in the 90s. Perhaps most of Marvel’s fans have not heard of this comic book series ever in their life. Well, they can’t be blame as the series had such a brief appearance that even Marvel had completely forgotten of their existence. However, when Disney bought over Marvel in 2009, there had been rumours on whether Disney would incorporate Marvel’s characters into their movies. Most of the fans were placing their bets on the well known superheroes of Marvel- Ironman, Captain America, Hulk and the Avengers. However, the very question is are those superheroes fitting to be in Disney movies? Well, Disney are famous for movies which are specially made for kids and there can’t be any violence or brutal scene. With that, Disney finally chose a not so famous Big Hero 6 for their latest movie. Fans might be a little disappointed at the decision and must be left in wonder over the identity of this so called Marvel superheroes.The original Big Hero 6 was a mesh up of Japanese manga and old school style. How could Disney bring in Japanese anime for their movies? When the trailer of Big Hero 6 was revealed, many fans heaved a sigh of relief. Disney made a huge transformation in the characters of Big Hero 6, weaving their magic wand and turn them into Disney like character. ( Honestly, the characters do look like a little like those from Pixar). Anyway, well done Disney. The original characters such as Baymax, Gogo and Honey Lemon were not a child friendly as in the movie. Once again, Disney showed their brilliance in turning those characters especially Baymax into a cute, adorable characters. Big Hero 6 is truly a well weaved film which displays the beauty of the modern animation. The design of the futuristic fictional city of Sanfransokyo( a combination San Francisco and Tokyo) was captivating....

The Descent (2005) – Insider

The Descent (2005) – Insider

Feb 3, 2015

The Descent  it is one of the most thrilling horror movies I have ever watched (and I have watched lots of horror movies). Those who are passionate about horror movies know how difficult it can be to find a movie that can scare you in such a way that it is impossible to fall asleep at night. How often do you watch a movie that can make you jump out of the bed? Well, not often, but this movie can do that. Plot The Descent (2005)  had one of the best plots I have ever seen, and it has a big score on IMDB, which is a score of 7.3 of 10. Not many horror movies manage to obtain such a high score. It is about a group of women who want to cheer up one of their friends who lost her daughter and husband in a car accident with a year before the actual action. However, they have chosen an unmapped cave, and they will realize their mistake when they will have to face some weird creatures that are surviving by eating human flesh. The first 10 minutes of the movie are a bit boring, but once they start moving forward in that cave everything becomes more exciting and scary. What I have found to be very interesting was the fact that the movie was all about women, their fears, their will to survive and the bond of their friendship. The real action starts when the women become trapped in that cave after a part of it collapses. As that cave was unmapped, no one knew a way out of it. So, they have to find a way out of the cave while fighting with the creatures that are planning to have them as dinner. During their attempt to escape they have to be strong as agroup and individually as well. When you will watch the movie you will actually feel their will of surviving, despite what they must do in order to get out of that horrifying cave. This movie  can be found on all tops with the best horror movies ever made. Not only that it is in those tops, but...
