Baby Driver

Baby Driver

Genre: Action, Crime, Music
Duration: 114 Minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: 30-JUN-2017
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3.75 / 5 (Vehicular Musical Getaway)

Plot:
After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail.

Overall Review:
After departure from Marvel Studios ‘Ant-Man’, Edgar Wright pulls back with his latest action-packed production “Baby Driver” that tells the story of a getaway driver named “Baby”. The plot of the film is pretty straight forward, a direct homage to a specific genre of film, in this case, the heist movie. Film ticks from the opening scene itself; first car chase that sets the pace beautifully...

Review: Passengers

Passengers

Passengers

Genre: Action, Drama, Romance
Duration: 116 Minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: 06-JAN-2017
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 3.25 on 5 (A let down Fairy-Tale Romance set in Space)

Plot:
A spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers are awakened 90 years early.

Overall Review:
Passengers is directed by Morten Tyldum and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt, Michael Sheen and Laurence Fishburne. The theme of the film is loneliness & the concept of the film is excellent & thought provoking but is wasted on a pretty generic, relatively bland and silly script. The film is predictable with part love, survival, space odyssey stories...

Inferno

Inferno

Reviewer: Dhruva Koranne
Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Duration: 121 minutes
Language: English
India Release Date: 14-OCT-2016
Pick-D-Flick Rating: 2 on 5 (BAD but far from Worse)

Plot:
Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in a hospital in Italy and has no recollection of the last 2 days. He must stop a deadly virus or half of the world’s population will die as he struggles with his amnesia. Langdon along with Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) must find the virus, clues to which are hidden in Dante’s ‘Inferno’.

Overall Review:
The film is based on the novel ‘Inferno’ by Dan Brown. The plot of the movie sounds thrilling, but sadly the movie isn’t. Ron Howard who previously won an Academy Award will surely feel that this film is just not one of his best works...

Plot:
When aliens misinterpret video feeds of classic arcade games as a declaration of war, they attack the Earth in the form of the video games.

Overall Review: This cheesy silly fun ride will keep you and your family entertained. Plot is simple and will take you to nostalgic world (only if you had loved Video Games in School Days): In 1982, Sam Brenner and Will Cooper count down the days to when the new video game arcade opens. They enter a video game competition and are up against Eddie Plant, who is a pro at playing Donkey Kong...
