Movie Review: The Last Witch Hunter

If you havd been given a chance to have a gift of immortality, what will you do?? For Kaulder ( Vin Diesel), half of his never ending life is about hunting and slaying all of the bad witches that walked on Earth, as it is his sworn duty to be “The Last Witch Hunter”. Now on the present time, he needs to accomplish one task, to finish what he had thought that he had done, slaying the Queen Witch that started it all.

Perspective:

I do like how they manage to incorporate old tales and modern era, giving the vibe and lightness for the viewers. They have manage to squeeze in what is the modern witches doing at the present day, and how they fit and adapt on the society. I like how Chloe (Rose Leslie) shows of her perkiness, which adds a little flavor of laughs for the movie. I do however, thinks why Dolan 37th (Elijah Wood) is added on the movie, doing nothing for most of the film. It feels like, he is just an extra, popping from scene to scene without no one is noticing him, giving Wood less lines, less perform, less to be seen, if given a sequel.

Vin Diesel though, gave his best impression of what he is in Dungeons & Dragons (young generations.. check on the internet!), as Kaulder. He did what he should have done, combining a lot of movie elements ( Blade, Van Helsing,  Torreto, F&F franchise, Stoick of How to Train your Dragon) but with extra power, immortality, I would say he is Vin Diesel after all, and this movie is co-produce by him and definitely viewers will watched this because of him.

The story itself is very direct and well script, connecting every part from the start to the end. But somehow it loses the wow factor, lacking on the story line progression. It’s like you’re watching it on a loop, the first part that he kills the Witch Queen is the also the last part, showing  flashback of Kaulder’s love ones all over the entire film, giving the viewers the chance to eat they’re popcorn for the sake of waiting it to finish.

All in all, “The Last Witch Hunter” is probably an okay movie. They have provided a new scope of world where witches and sorcery is alive. And they do give some hints of a sequel, to develop the story even further. So I suggest keeping in mind that this movie has potential to it, and can be developed for further more projects to come.

Today is the Future!

Like many other Back to the Future” fans I feverish this day for years opposed: October 21, 2015. It is the date on which Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox, 54) in the second part of the cult film (which plays in 1985) lands in California in the future!

Marty could not believe what he saw in this future world : flying cars, seelfdrying clothes, robots that take dogs for a walk and of course Hoverboards!

The floating skateboard was the dream of my youth and this dream is now within reach. Since 2014, several manufacturers have released prototypes, for normal people, unfortunately not for sale. Not yet…

1301711727249726793

But Back to the Future” was cult not only for the Hoverboard. Director Robert Zemeckis (63, Forrest Gump”, The Walk”) and his team were ahead of their time, they had visions and their minds were playful.  They created three wonderful parts of this franchise that millions of fans across five continents and three decades have been entertainment by. What a performance!
But why do I love this triologie that much?
First, they are great comedies. They are constant funny scenes, humorous sayings (Lou! Bring me a milk. Chocolate.”) Or even a silly facial expression that makes me smile. Doc Browns (Christopher Lloyd, 76) frightened look when his toy DeLorean catches fire, is still uproariously funny!
Movies that do not just look for the first laugh have just done something right. At the same time, each episode is exciting, with well thought out action scenes and outrageous acts. All this topped with a dash of science fiction and fantastic actors for me among the best movie trilogies ever!
1301711727182582601
Marty McFly is the perfect character, with which I can identify myself as a spectator. He has goals (his band), has failed to comply with rules (hold while skateboarding on cars that are driving) and understands many things not which are explained him by his mentor Doc Brown.

The chemistry between Christopher Lloyd and Michael J. Fox is great in every scene. We never learn about their past, but it makes you belivethat they know well and trust each other.

Even after the hundrets time watching the films I notice small funny details that show the attention to detail of the screenwriters Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale.  Keyword: “Twin Pines / Lone Pine Mall”. Or that Elijah Wood is seen in one of his first acting performances in the second part (as a young boy at the slot machines at the diner).

The films are wonderfully quotable, from “88 miles per hour” on “1.21 gigawatts !?” to “Hey McFly!” And “No one calls me a chicken!”  it offers quotes that still stick.

Biff Tannen (Thomas F. Wilson, 56) is a great villain. In any age, in any timeline he is always stupid and evil. He annoys small children, proposes classmates and is mean to his mother. The perfect antagonist who understands in the second part, that he can use the time machine to give himself an advantage.
1301711728081469001
The DeLorean is just one of the iconic objects from the film series, along with Hoverboards and the Flux Capacitor Men dreams came true!
Not to mention, the small gag on where the cousin of Chuck Berry wants  to inspire him over the phone with the song that later he writes together with Johnnie Johnsen.
I could go on endlessly and gush about this cinematic masterpiece, but on this anniversary i am going to  enjoy the three parts again and look forward to the documentary “Back in Time“, which will be released on November 3rd.

Here again the Plot in short: From Mark Osborne comes the first-ever animated feature film adaptation of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s iconic masterpiece, The Little Prince. At the heart of it all is The Little Girl, who’s being prepared by her mother for the very grown-up world in which they live – only to be interrupted by her eccentric, kind-hearted neighbor, The Aviator. The Aviator introduces his new friend to an extraordinary world where anything is possible. A world that he himself was initiated into long ago by The Little Prince. It’s here that The Little Girl’s magical and emotional journey into her own imagination – and into the universe of The Little Prince – begins. And it’s where The Little Girl rediscovers her childhood and learns that ultimately, it’s human connections that matter most, and that what’s truly essential can only be seen with the heart.

“The Little Prince” will be Releasing in UAE Cinemas on October 22, 2015 and you can check out the Trailer once again below:
