Welcome to Movies Angel – for trailers, reviews and excerpts.
In this latest offering in the Pirates series, Johnny Depp once again charms us with his goofy portrayal. The story as always is improbable, but adventure, comedy and bizarre characters are all par for the course. Even if you are not a fan of this series, watch it just for the entertainment value, since swashbuckling pirates, marauding villains and beautiful women like Penelope Cruz all combine together to give you an evening of sheer joy.
The story line is softer to some extent, and we miss Orlando Bloom and the lovely Keira Knightley, but Johnny Depp just seems to carry the entire film on his whacky shoulders.
KUNG FU PANDA 2
Kung Fu Panda 2 is one of those animated films which has gone much beyond the classification of being a child’s film. It has everything that a great entertainer needs and is one of Dreamworks best presentations.
It has a funny and charming storyline – A panda who needs to defend his valley from an albino peacock – how much more bizarre can you get. Yet you connect with the characters and the story and you are cheering him and his four friends as they embark on their mission.
This is a great sequel to the first Kung Fu Panda film, and technical excellence and great dialogues make it a joy to watch.
One of Quentin Tarantino’s finest films, this Brad Pitt and Christopher Waltz starrer is a fictional account of two plots to eliminate the Nazi leadership. Thoroughly entertaining, yet violent and vile in many places, it does not glorify either the plotters not does it decry the German soldiers.
The story may be fictional, but Tarantino’s superb direction and his ability to make even a simple film look and sound great, make this seem like a true story.
