With a minimum cast, The Lunchbox has been cooked to near perfection and leaves a great taste in your mouth. It flows out like a poem and is greatly helped by excellent performances.

Despicable Me 2 – Hilariously Surprised Again

When the world needed a hero, they called a villain

There was hardly a boring or a meh moment in the entire movie. Some of the jokes are not exactly pristine but Gru’s accent takes care of that, and leaves you laughing out loud.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Star Trek Into Darkness

I am always of hope that there will be a turn somewhere which would set me on living, not just getting through life.

Changes from the book – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

The Deathly Hallows Symbol

Before we start listing them out, I want to note that some of the changes actually make the story better and a more interesting watch on the screen. It is only some of the changes, especially those that are not even consistent with the previous movies that seem somewhat irritating.

It has all ended! Seven Harry Potter movies later, we have come to the last movie of the series. Seven books and eight movies is quite a story and it falls on the last movie to give a fitting end to the series. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, shortest in terms of runtime as well as in the number of chapters it covers, provides a spectacular ending to the series that spanned a decade.
