1. Exodus: Gods and Kings (2014): 7/10 I don't know enough about the biblical testament to comment on authenticity and factual accuracies of the film but, the film is bluntly entertaining with the kind of canvas and production scale the film has shown. Apart from some biblical mythology, it also gives hints how an entire civilization like Egypt could have met to extinction as the film has brilliantly captured the disaster sequences of the film which obviously happened with the interest of God in the film but, even if we see it with an eye of science, some of its parts could be believable.
After watching sci-fi films like Alien, Prometheus, Blade Runner, Exodus was unexpected from Ridley Scott. Well, now I know the man is someone who thinks and does it big. I've surely got an interest in his work and I'll be exploring more of his work with films like Gladiator and Martian are queued up in my next to watch list.
The film has Christian Bale, one more reason why I loved the film. <3
2. Kingdom of Heaven (2005): 7/10 Well, another Ridley Scott film, another film based on biblical testament. In this film, the story is most superior aspect comparing with my last watch Exodus: Gods and Kings. The political spectrum of Jerusalem and the diplomatic build-up of the characters make it an interesting watch and then there are savage war-sequences which is just jaw-dropping. The film rather starts on a slow note, but it picks up faster once the story is established. Overall, a satisfying film.
3. Westworld (TV Series) (2016): 9/10 Bloody Hell! This is some freakin awesome stuff. One of the best thing I've watched this year and I'm quite not over it yet. The series may have ended and the Men In Black may have found the Maze in the end (which obviously wasn't for him though), but, it has left a maze for me to solve for sure. I'm loving it, the way I'm going back and forth trying to connect each sequence, making a timeline is just mind-blowing. Each time I sleep on any particular incident of the film, I got a fresh rearrangement of the sequence of the events of the story. The screenplay of the film is indeed smart and intelligent.
The series has a lot to offer. It's a philosophical and insightful show, full of wisdom and characters conversing with each other in an array of ground-breaking dialogues make you think about the very evolution and reality of our existing world and beyond the time we're living in. The series has made a powerful appearance in my life, it's impactful and I'm glad I've watched it. <3
