A Friday movie night out with the family. We watched the Tamil dubbed version.

To me, this is a β˜… movie.

Disney seems to be run out of new ideas and its recent live action version of animated versions shows that desperation. The wonder of the animated version is missing or it could that I’m too old now.

Max loved it and so obviously that counts. πŸ™‚ I must show the original movie to him and ask his reaction.

The Lion King (2019) from IMDb

After the murder of his father, a young lion prince flees his kingdom only to learn the true meaning of responsibility and bravery.

I felt there were too many slo-mo scenes.

Watched the Tamil-dubbed version on Amazon Prime Video.

My rating: β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

Lucifer (2019) from IMDb

A political Godfather, who ruled the God’s Own Country, dies and a lot of thieves dressed up as politicians took over the rule. When question arises on the replacement of the ‘God’, just one name emerges; ‘Stephen Nedumbally’.

Watched on Saturday July 13, 2019.

It was a good premise and one that we have seen Hollywood crank out several times over the years – parent-child relationships in a broken marriage. Translating it to a Kollywood milieu is the problem. Unrealistic scenarios and unexplained character developments run amok. A β˜…β˜… rating in my opinion.

Viswasam (2019) – IMDb from IMDb

A village ruffian, who settles disputes in his native, takes on a big shot when he tries to sort out the rough patch in his marriage after several years.

Watched on Friday May 31, 2019 at Luxe Cinemas IMAX.

Max wanted to watch this as soon as I mentioned this movie and since it was releasing on Sofi’s birthday.

I liked the movie and so did Max till he fell asleep just a few minutes before the big final kaiju fight.

As usual, I stuck on for the post credits scene and the tease for the next Kong versus Godzilla showdown was well done in the credits.

Long live the King…
