    Zootopia (2016)

    I watched this animation film Zootopia (2016) with my wife and son, who highly recommended it. As usual its a simple story told with the Disney magic touch. It’s about a little bunny “Judy” who wishes to become a police officer and work in Zootopia city, an utopian city where all animals – both predators and prey live together harmoniously. Judy dreams of going there as she believes in Zootopia anyone can become anything they wish.

    Finding Dory (2016)

    Today I accompanied my son to see Disney’s newest animation film “Finding Dory“. Just like previous success films of Disney this one too has its protoganist, in this case a blue coloured cute little fish getting lost and finding its way back. I liked the twist on where the home of Dory was situated, keeping it there makes it convenient for the writer to introduce humans and more actions into the story. Anyways, I was not complaining I had more than my share of joy by watching my son enjoying the film. Amongst the many characters, the seven-legged octopus named Hank which camouflages brilliantly with the surrounding was my favourite. The climax scene where Hank drives…

    Inside Out (2015)

    Pixar has proved yet again they are master story tellers and their imagination is out of this world. In Inside Out they actually go inside us, inside the brain of a young girl, animating all her emotions – her Joy, Sadness, Fear, Anger and Disgust. The young girl named Riley is living in Minnesota happily with her parents, surrounded by her friends and playing in her hockey team. Her father gets a job in San Francisco, moves the family to that city, taking Riley into new surroundings and new people. How she handles this and grows over it is the story. But this is not the way Directors Pete Docter and Ronnie del Carmen have told the story,…

    The Lego Movie (2014)

    When I was a kid I was not into Lego that much nor I am a kid now, then why did I watch The Lego Movie (2014) today?. My son asked me to join him, I did and I didn’t want to walk away, that’s why. With all the hype about the movie I was expecting a much grandeur plot and execution. Nevertheless it was watchable and a bit entertaining. As expected the  movie is about what happens in a world where everything and everyone are made of Lego blocks. The story is about how a common building laborer is mistaken for being “special”, a saviour of world. There is…

    Penguins of Madagascar (2014)

    Son was asking me to take him to this movie “Penguins of Madagascar” for over a week now. Wife made it clear she was not interested to spend 2 hours in a theatre with penguins doing senseless action. In the morning today, due to an over enthusiastic action of mine during Yoga class gifted me a stiff neck with pain when turning. Inspite of that, I didn’t want to miss taking my son to the movie today for a father-son time alone without wife minding us on every step!. We drove to Luxe (Phoenix Mall) cinemas in Velachery to see the movie in the evening, with my son guiding me for the turns. On the way to…
