Picks and piques/Snippet Film Reviews 31stJan2014/Johnson Thomas


One By Two(Hindi): Rating:*  *   going for quirky and  interesting but ending up extremely tedious, disastrously unfunny and disengaging!


12 years a Slave(English) Rating: *  *  *  * Steve McQueen (Hunger) directs from a script he co-wrote with John Ridley, based in part on Solomon Northup's memoir(true Story) about his life as a free man in the 1800’s , subsequent kidnap and enslaving and finally ending in his rescue by a Canadian abolitionist. This is a somber, hurtful  almost poetic film that delivers the horrors of bondage with true grit!


I, Frankenstein(English) Rating:   *  * ½ Stuart Beattie brings Kevin Grevioux's acclaimed graphic novel to the screen in this gothic horror fantasy adventure that is sorely lacking in humor!
