We are a mad bunch of cousins and siblings. The two things that are common between us is a love for reading and watching movies! For us, it is mostly supernatural action movies that make it to the watchlist. So, all of us were meeting after ages and were super excited about making our grand reunion a success. We were together only for a weekend and I didn’t want us to just eat and sleep. I wanted us to revive our old memories where we watched movies non-stop while enacting the scenes and dialogues from the movies, chit chatting and even lip-syncing popular dialogues (As I said we are a mad bunch!)
Such kind of leisure is only possible at home. Also the fact that my cousins were coming only for the weekend, we didn’t want to end up spending time in multiplexes. Then there was the factor of availability. We are okay with watching classics to the latest as long as they are our favourites! That’s when ZEE5 came to my rescue!
I looked up the action movies section and found a great list of movies that we had loved watching earlier. There were a few that we had missed and were looking forward to watching them like The Priest, The Legion and The Interview! My weekend was sorted!
The D day arrived and we already had a list to watch movies! The first on the list was Priest
Priest was a movie released in 2011 and revolved around the premise of an alternate world where there were regular wars between humans and vampires. A vampire hunter priest, who had vowed secrecy and non-hunting practices against vampires, breaks these vows and goes against the Church when his niece is kidnapped by a murderous pack of vampires. The movie was very promising and had a great star cast. The execution is wonderful and the movie manages to keep you on the edge, with all the special effects.
After this, the next movie on our list was Legion
Legion too started off with a lot of promise, especially with its take on the supernatural action genre with biblical themes. Released in 2010 this movie too had a powerful star cast. However, apart from the action scenes, there wasn’t much that excited us. But these movies worked well for our purpose as we could have our laughs, critic moments and chit chat while catching up on the action sequences, which were well executed.
We wanted to end the day on a fun note and hence decided to catch up on The Interview.
This was sarcasm at its best with a lot of action thrown in. The Interview released in 2014 and has some fantastic action and great humor throughout. Producer Aaron Rapaport and Dave Skylark run the celebrity tabloid show “Skylark Tonight” which finds an unlikely fan in North Korean dictator Kim- Jong-un. The CIA considers this as an opportunity to plan an assassination bid. What follows is a hilarious attempt to blend in the role of assassinators, plan the assassination and try to escape from North Korea alive.
This movie was the perfect end we could have to an otherwise sci-fi heavy action movie marathon. Here’s the trailer of the movie if you haven’t watched it!
