Into the Woods (2014) - Trailer

Into the Woods (2014)

What could be better than a Disney treat on Christmas - Into the Woods!

Into the Woods looks more promising than any other movie this December. With all the cast, Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, who all and who not.

A baker and his wife are cursed to be childless, what follows are the adventures they get into bringing the magical stuff to break the curse. In the middle of all this, there would be classic fairy tale characters, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, etc etc. The witch, of course, is played by Meryl Streep! What more can we ask for!

Brace yourself for this feast!

The Age of Adaline - Trailer

The Age of Adaline (2015)

An interesting twist to what could have been a period drama through and through, The Age of Adaline's (2015) trailer promises, well, of more than one love stories, tangled!

Adaline (Blake Lively) meets with an accident and stops to age! So, there you have multiple love stories over the long decades because our heroine remains just as young as she was 50 years ago..and becomes more stylish by the decades! Delightful huh!

The movie would be releasing sometime in 2015 and I can't wait to watch Blake Lively in a period flick.

Stay tuned!

The Theory of Everything (2014) - Reviewed

The Theory of Everything 

Photo Credits
Physics seems to be raging all around us, with movies like Gravity and Interstellar getting mainstream. The Theory of Everything (2014) tells us about the life of the most popular theoretical physicist of our times, Stephen Hawking.

The movie opens with Hawking completing his Phd. at Cambridge in the early 60s. This is where he meets Jane, falls in love and marries her. In the meanwhile, he is detected with the motor neuron disease and what follows is the rest of the story of his success and difficulties.

Eddie Redmayne as Hawking brings life to the character and I can't think of a substitute for the part. Redmayne's performance is absolutely breath taking and one would have to watch the movie to believe it. I think it is his best till date and honestly, he deserves an Oscar for this role. Felicity Jones plays Jane, Hawking's darling and first wife. Jones has come a long way from playing teenaged characters to this serious and hard part in a period movie. She deserves an applause for this portrayal and probably an Oscar nomination.

Watch this movie for :
1. Redmayne and Jones perfomrances.
2. Learning about the life Stephen Hawking.
3. Inspiration.

Comment on this post and let me know if you have watched this movie already. All ears!

Pompeii (2014)

Trailer : Pompeii (2014)

Releasing this February this period drama is about a gladiator fighting against time to save her lady love. Sounds a bit dramatic with the background of Pompeii but watch it for the love of period movies and fight sequences and Kit Harington ;). I am sure girls would.

Releasing on 21 February.

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

Trailer: The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014)

How did you like it? Well it is definitely one of those movies I would be eagerly waiting for this year. The trailer is amazing and I think so would be the movie The Grand Budapest Hotel. Cannot expect a better or more diversified cast and I don't remember when was the last time I watched Ralph Fiennes look so funny, besides, you rarely get to see a comic period movie.

Releasing on 7th March.
