The Trust | The corny movie review by Navin

The Trust
Nicholas Cage and Elijah Wood come together to create The Trust and there are fireworks.

The Trust is a heist movie with a twist. Nicholas and Elijah play two underpaid cops who get a little idea to become rich. 
Cage is an incredible actor and shows his mettle. As a huge fan of Cage,I've enjoyed all of his movies. 

Elijah shows why he is in a league of his own.

The plot thickens towards at midriff and then plateaus. This is one of those movies where you cannot afford to blink and makes you wonder. Wonder if you missed something in that nanosecond it took to blink. There are parts where I felt the script was not airtight and then there are parts where you realize why Cage is still Hollywood royalty just because of the way he delivers a sentence/gesture.

Would I recommend it? 
If you are into Cage or Wood, hell ya.
If you are into heist movies, maybe. There is just enough nudity and drugs to label this one. 
That said, The Trust is a good way to spend 2 hours on an idle Wednesday night.

My rating: 7

What does the rating mean? 
0-4  : Not worth your presence in the same zip code as the TV/Theater.
5-7  : Err... the movie is pretty, but it's definitely missing something. A storyline, that is.
8-10: 'Drop-the-dishes, stop-the-sex, jaw-dropping, that-is-incredible' 2 hours of movie experience

Zoombies | The corny movie review by Navin

Zoombies
I agreed to watch this movie on DVD only because I lost a bet and had to watch a movie that is out of my league. And that's the story of how Zoombies happened to me.

This movie is about a 'strange and mysterious' virus that turns animals (within a zoo) into zombies. That's about it. 

First of all, what were the producers thinking when they reference Jurrasic World in the title poster? Surely, there have been better zombie movies and even the worst movie in the Jurrasic Park franchise was light-years ahead of this concussion. 

There aren't any actors you'll recognize and equally inane conversations you wish you didn't have to hear. On the plus side, you'll know how the story will end in exactly 4 minutes into the movie. The special effects in this movie is a blasphemy. The way the lions chase the jeep at the end of the movie is a joke!


Would I recommend it? 

Unless you are a sucker for cruel and unusual punishment, here's what I would recommend you do - 
  1. Make a list of people you absolutely hate. Easy Ranger. 
  2. Now narrow it down to the Top 10. 
  3. Trick them into watching Zoombies.
Punishment Extraordinaire
I would caution you not to watch it yourself. Never, not in a million years. And 30 years after that (just in case).
Zoombies is the Hollywood equivalent of a C Grade Bollywood thriller. The only differentiator is - Hollywood has slicker marketing than Bollywood.

My rating: 0.5 (and I've been really generous here..)
