Hot Fuzz- Its cool,Partner!


Before getting ready to watch this movie, you should know one thing. What’s the mystery behind the word “Fuzz”?In an ordinary context it means a thin coating of fine hairs or fibres. But here in this Hot Fuzzian context it means,“uncomplimentary terms for a policeman” and also it points out a member of a law enforcement agency. So this movie is all about a fuzz which is fuckin’ hot. To jump off with, the first duo to be honoured is Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg. The former should be proud of being the director incharge of this movie and the later should be happy to join hands with the former in writing the screenplay. Really you fellas rock! In the recent past we have seen quite a number of police stories among which “The Departed” leads, but all of them are pretty serious movies and they have similar plot structures. But this movie is fresh and hot straightaway from the kitchen of the couple Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg.

Hmm, the plot begins prim and proper with the description of the London cop Nicholas Angel{Simon Pegg}. who is a badge perfect policeman who needs everything under control. For better understanding, he is exactly the opposite of Clouseau who lives in Pink Panther. But Nicholas Angel has some good friends on his side who love his performance and promote{!} him to a village named Sandford, where everything seems to be perfect. Here in this God’s own country, Nicholas Angel is accompanied by his work partner Danny Butterman{Nick Frost},who is a childish action movie lover who wanna be a super cop in real life too.Further,Angel is annoyed by a number of guys in the village.Everything goes fine till Nicholas finds that the accident rates are increasing at an alarming pace while the crime rate is low in the village.Things go at a cop’s cycle speed till they get boiled up. In the Sandford country side we see quite a number of characters which include Inspector Frank Butterman {JimBroadbent},Simon Skinner{Timothy Dalton}, Tom Weaver{Edward Woodward},DS Andy Wainwright{Paddy Considine} and so on. Our Ex.Bond Mr.Timothy Dalton is still smart,but Bond,you too! So the movie dies out when Nicholas Angel re establishes justice in Sandford.

Like an American novel we have a number of characters in this academy, so that we find it very difficult to remember the names but we are used to them in the course of the movie. The screenplay plays well but at times we feel like watching a Comic TV series. Also this movie reminds us the English comics of the 80s because of its comic elements. Regarding the characterisation,every character lives! The plot structures drills us to learn patience till it reaches the crisis, but when at once its built up, it shows us what action is 🙂 .The scenes involving the two detectives, the scene in which Nicholas arrests the under age drunkards, the translation scenes and the Danny scenes are highly hilarious and highly remarkable.Though this is a fun fuzzed movie, we find a few bloody violent holy shi’ scenes. Considering the actors,both Simon Pegg and Nick Frost shoot hard to win the best actor medal. So the second duo to be medalled is Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.

Among the technical fuzzers, the music director David Arnold who is known for scoring music to Casino Royale,the latest Bond movie is buzzing. We listen to a wide variety of music while watching this movie. The director of photography,Jess Hall recieves three cheers for giving a comic massage to our eyes. When we think about the editing done by Chris Dickens, some unknown “lengthy” feeling runs through our mind. After watching the movie, we doubt whether the director wanted to make a Parody of the Oscar winner “The Departed”. So guys get ready to watch this movie which says “The right is not the right when your enemy is more than one”

Apocalypto- Seeks a new beginning!

This time Touchstone pictures bring forward a work of art,to touch our hearts.Once again Mel Gibson saves the “actor turned directors make a good show in Hollywood” aphorism supported by Farhad Safinia . Evidently this movie sets a new standard in movie making. Dont let the trailers and clippings grease your prejudice, this movie is beyond things.

The Plot is a clear crystal.After being enslaved and taken by a group of holcane warriors, the protagonist Jaguar Paw{Rudy Youngblood} who belongs to another clan,fights his way out of that notorious land to save his family,of course the only family which escaped the fatal invasion. To our surprise , the story travels in the times of Mayan civilization. {It should be around 50-100 A.D}.We find certain traces of barbarianism and almost cannibalism which are obviously the”fashion of that age”.Directors receive hails for making this movie totally in a different realm.

Quite a number of scenes score well in this Saviour’s rush. The very first hunting scene followed by the scenes portraying the sufferings of Jaguar Paw’s wife Seven {Dalia Hernandez}and son inside the “well” like hole are unique.The last 30 minutes of the chase are amazing!The movie stands as a representative to the Will Durant’s quote“A great civilization is not conquered from without until it has destroyed itself from within” as these hieroglyphics glitter on screen before the story begins to unroll.Anyhow this movie is surely not for the weak hearted. Regarding the characterizations we have the good the bad as well as the ugly. At the end of the day good people win this game.

Mel Gibson has taken his inspiration from various philosophies and books which include “The heart of darkness” by Joseph Conrad. Mel Gibson has tried to build this movie as an ancient epic, but only a few succeed in the art of epic making. Sincerely,the heroic couplet,Mel and Safinia have given us its best.

The technical aspects of this movie “fly high” because they take us to a new world. Before anything, the master makeup men Vittorio Sodano and Aldo Signoratti have hunted their forest well by transforming men of this age into men of a totally different epoch.As Mel Gibson explains, “In every frame, the camera is always moving and there’s always someone or something moving within that moving shot.” Dean Semler‘s camera glides and slides as well as rocks throughout the movie.Ted Rae has conjured the visual effects properly.The stunts are stunning and a dozen of cheers go to Mic Rogers and Gerardo Moreno and their team. Jame’s Horner’s music for this movie is full of chants which will haunt our minds for a long time. John Wright’s editing proves to be worthy, but at some places we feel lonely.So to conclude, Apocalypto proves that, “the fittest will make its way out,irrespective of its origin”

Spiderman 3 – The super boy hits again!

The third sequel to the spiderman series hits the screen at the right time. This time the web slinging tale’s plot is complicatedly spun with a handful of characters. Throughout movie the “comic touch” lives, which make us honour the boss of this movie,Sam Raimi ie the director. As usual the story is picked out from the Marvel comic series and knitted out as the screen story by Sam Raimi and Evan Raimi. Though the screenplay has pitfalls like cobwebs in an old house they are not strong enough to pull the house down. But it would be very foolish to look for logic in a friendly neighbourhood fairy tale like this.

The story has a theme , a value: “Your decisions decide your character”. This time Peter Parker{Tobey Maguire} appears as a contended and happy man working in Daily Bugle as a photographer{He is not a boy now,he has grown a lot!} with his love interest Mary Jane{Kirsten Dunst}. But like previous times,our hero is not happy for a long time. First of all, he faces the wrath of Harry Osborne{James Franco} the Junior Goblin for Harry feels that Peter is responsible for his father’s death. When this part slings for a while,Spiderman is got hold of a nasty symbiote which comes from another planet. As a result of this creepy attack,Peter Parker’s attitude and mindset changes, also the love web between him and Mary Jane is stretched to the maximum. As a consequence she becomes attracted to Harry, who had lost a few memory threads. When the escaped prisoner Flint Marko{Thomas Haden Church} falls accidentaly in an actively working nuclear equipment, he becomes a sand monster which could change its shape and size according to the damage it wants to do! So without much to our surprise he clashes with our super hero.
After a brief period of time Harry hits back Spiderman, who is of course now under the influence of the symbiote. But this time the symbiote Spiderman ruthlessly replies the Junior Goblin’s attack which results in severe physical damage of the latter. At a particular night Spiderman gets rid of the symbiote by a phenomena called sound vibrations!{very funny!} Immediately the symbiote enslaves Eddy Brock{Topher Grace} who is the rival Photographer of Peter Parker in the Daily Bugle, for he feels that Peter had lifted away his girlfriend Gwen Stacy {Bryce Dallas Howard} and his daily bread from him. After the symbiote attack,he changes into to a creature named Venom and threatens the livewire of Spidey. Now near the end,the duo of Sandman and Venom pose as the biggest and toughest enemies that Spiderman has faced ever. As this is a fairy tale, once again Peter Parker strenghtens his “Love web”.

If we consider the flaws,the spider boy’s strands fail to stick in a few scenes. One of them is Harry’s quick changing mind, which inturn confuses the audience whether he travels by Spiderman or against spiderman. Secondly the million dollar question that arises is that whether the Symbiote covers Spiderman or Peter Parker or his suite. Along side, when it gets hold of spiderman, only the colour of his outfit changes but on the contrary it turns Eddy in to an ugly monster. Also there is no proper reasons for MJ’s attraction towards Harry.Besides these the sand man’s knot is not properly tied in the end.May be we need a proper epilogue for this fairy tale!

The technical team of this movie recieves a hell lot of Cheers! For without them this movie would be like a torn mask of spiderman. Apart from the heroes and villains of this movie Jonah Jameson{J.K. Simmons}the Daily Bugle’s editor proves really to be a fun machine.
Evidently,undoubtedly,apparently the kids will love this candy! But the caution is that this the scariest spider movie. So get ready for an adrenaline rush!Life is not always beautiful for Peter Parker. So comic fans , get ready for your summer treat.Once again “Spiderman saves the day and who saves Spiderman?is the question”.
