Why do critics like Rajeev Masand criticize masala movies even if they entertain the majority of the audience?

My answer to Why do critics like Rajeev Masand criticize masala movies even if they entertain the majority of the a…

Answer by Rohan Golwalkar:

1) Because most masala movies are not well made ( talking about quality not about how much masala each movie has)
2) His focus is reviewing movie on merit of quality.

Popular content works as most people don't have an overview of world cinema ( and there is nothing wrong with it- it depends on the interest).

Are movie critics really biased against DC?

My answer to Are movie critics really biased against DC?

Answer by Rohan Golwalkar:

A bit probably.

But there seems to be a pattern, Marvel is consistently delivering great action films back to back, which is forcing DC universe to do things differently.

Now Nolan’s Batman trilogy was successful because he made three great movies.Snyder chose (atleast) tried to keep the same tone(may be he should chosen a bit lighter tone).

Now for me Man Of Steel,BvS were not movies,but one does not come out screaming -wow,and thats what is DC missing out on.

Suicide squad however might just make a killing despite bad reviews.

I think DC directors need freedom and they can probably direct short movies and present it to various business heads and see how it goes.

Hope I answered the question.

How is Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice movie?

My answer to How is Batman vs Superman Dawn of Justice movie?

Answer by Rohan Golwalkar:

It depends how you look at it : if you are looking it as a single threaded story(focussing more on Batman or Superman) then it is not.

However it introduces new characters,sub-plots which would be pivotal to next movies (Infinity War 1 & 2).

Its great visually but its dark(content and lighting wise), visually its outstanding but almost with no humor.

Is it a classic – No.

Is it a good one time watch – Yes

Would it be a fun to watch again on BluRay : Totally.

Hope i answered your question.

Batman V Superman : My Thoughts

So first the internet : 30% on Rotten tomatoes tells us that this movie is as terrible or worse than Ghost Rider or The Green Lantern or any of those Adam Sandler movies : So you decide whether to watch the movie or not.

Does that mean it is a great perfect movie : the answer is No, however it is a great setup to what may be great series of movies (Justice League – Wonder Woman etc).

Now let’s talk about existing hate :
  • Hate for Dir Zack Snyder : critics hate him and have labelled him “style over substance “ – though not entirely wrong – this movie is way better than the transformer movies (Michael Bay being another style over substance director).
  •  Hate for Ben Affleck as Batman : Well he has just punched the critics – he is solid and most bad-ass Batman – he acts well and fights the best compared to the previous heroes.

Now this is not a funny movie (marvel does it better) – but it is not intended too as well – yes there are lot of elements in the movie : so like it or hate it is entirely a preference.

I enjoyed the movie and also the battle between two giants – Wonder woman was a delight to watch whenever she appeared on screen – visually the movie was solid. Cavill is THE superman and Jesse as Lex was decent as well.

Could it be better? Yes for sure, but is it terrible : No it isn’t – please go watch for yourself and decide for yourself – and if your idea of Superman movie is that nothing will get destroyed then stay away🙂

Can Quora replace Facebook?

Answer by Rohan Golwalkar:

No Quora cannot and should not replace Facebook : reason are listed below :
  1. Facebook is an awesome social network which caters to everyone and anyone – that's their strength and that is really how they grow : every like,every photo,every status is important and the engagement is super easy.
  2. Quora is a knowledge network : you may discuss a topic and pass on other – its more per your interest(knowledge topic) – which is great and should be maintained the same way.
Quora is unique and helps a lot in getting knowledge about thing you may not know from people who know more than you(not necessarily) but we receive a collective feedback – whereas in facebook a like does the trick.
you get the idea🙂

How good is Lord of the Rings book series by J.R.R. Tolkein?

Answer by Rohan Golwalkar:

To start with : it is a long but rewarding read – i am listing few reasons why reader may enjoy this :
  • An unlikely hero : Frodo takes up a task way above his ability.
  • Whole bunch of warriors commit to guard him and to make sure he finishes his task : commitment/loyalty
  • Great Friendship : especially between Sam and Frodo
  • Some remarkable creatures : Gollum
  • Imaginative writing : Tolkien created a world so elaborate, at times one has to wonder how he achieved it.
  • Brilliant evil villains
  • Lot of magic and suspense and thrilling moments
  • Solid war sequences
All and all it is a great world he created and it all ties up very nicely : it won't be easy for a non-reader or beginner – but if you keep at it – it will be rewarding.
Note: to cheat you can watch the LOTR trilogy Directed by Peter Jackson and then read the book to further enhance the experience.
