Rogue One: A Starwars story

December 18, 2016

Rogue One : A Star Wars story is a great movie and a prequel to starwars movie series. The planets and the satellites that they show are mapped to real ones. For a change, there is no opening crawl at the start of the movie.  Another big differentiator is a female led story where daughter of an architect tries to help the rebels not to kill the planets. Instead of R2-D2, there is a new droid K-2SO.

A Saturn-sized planet in our own galaxy reminded Nasa scientists so much of the fictional planet that they nicknamed their new find after Tatooine, Luke Skywalker's home planet . Kepler-16b, the planet is located in the constellation Cygnus, some 200 light-years away from Earth.



In 2006, scientists discovered an icy planet that reminded them so much of the rebel base base from The Empire Strikes Back that they nicknamed it Hoth. The planet is officially named OGLE 2005-BLG-390L after the Optical Gravitational Lensing Experiment (OGLE) that found it.  Fictional Hoth (right) is a frozen tundra that briefly serves as a base for the hidden Rebel Alliance. It's also the nickname of real exoplanet OGLE-2005-BLG-390.



While Return of the Jedi's forest moon of Endor and The Force Awakens' Takodana are both full of lush greenery, astrobiologists believe that plant life could take on different colours on alien planets.  In August, the European Southern Observatory announced the discovery of Proxima Centauri b.This planet is just 4 light-years away from Earth and orbits a tiny red star. 

For "Rogue One," imain character Jyn Erso (played by Felicity Jones), the daughter of the architect behind the Death Star, Galen Erso (Mads Mikkelsen). An outsider since her father forced her to run away from home as a young girl when the Empire's director of advanced weapons research, Orson Krennic (Ben Mendelsohn), ordered Galen to return to finish the Death Star, Jyn has grown to only take care of herself. She ignores the flags of the Empire rising across the galaxy, which you can't notice, as she says, "if you don't look up."  When the Rebel Alliance tracks her down with the hopes that she can lead them to Galen, who has sent out a message through a cargo pilot who works for him (Riz Ahmed) that there is a flaw in the Death Star he's created that can destroy it, Jyn realizes her purpose: bringing hope to the Rebels.




 

Mohen jadro : Content vs action oriented

August 18, 2016



Movie starts with mohen jadro replication of our text book image in social studies...


Movie has a great historical background. Ashutosh as usual focuses on the taking the audience through the time line and in between trace back the time line of sarman's father srujan and uncle durjan fighting against maham. The time line shift in between gives the audience the shift in movie's direction...non linear chronology... reminds me of pulp fiction style...

In between, indus script based language used i...

Thoongavanam - Movie from kamal

December 6, 2015
Kamal comes up with a real life story of a sincere cop.  I saw it in tamil. It is a great movie made like a hollywood movie. It is based on a french movie "Nuit blanche (Sleepless nights)". The story moves with the life and camera on the cop who struggles between sincerity and corrupt world. The movie presents true sincerity of a cop who tries to bring down the smugglers in disguise. Kamal ends up sitting in the office wounded to act like nothing has happened.

November 29, 2015
For all those great Rocky Balboa fans, Creed is a great movie where Balboa changes as coach to Apollo Creed's son.  Rocky has been a great movie series for me.  It was great when I was a kid to watch and grow up thinking one day I will be rocky balboa - physically. It was great today when I went with my father to watch the movie. We watched Rocky III in 1982, Rocky IV in 1985, Rocky V in 1990 and Rocky VII in 2015. I remember talking to dad regarding Rocky VI in 2006. It was great to watch in...

November 7, 2015
Walk is a great movie with unbelievable scenes. Walking on a tight rope is shown great starting from street rope walk to the world trade center  buildings - walk on the rope.



Like a usual hollywood movie, technology plays the key role in taking the person from the street to the walking across the building. Ben kingsley plays the role of a mentor to teach  joseph levitt.  9/11 memories are completely erased with walk movie...when they show the twin towers emerge from the clouds as levitt walks ...
