The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel – A Cozy Visit With Old Friends!

The Gang

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was, to say the least, a most unexpected global hit. The idea of a group of English senior citizens moving to Jaipur, India to give themselves a better retirement – although intriguing – was expected to make money as a niche bit of counterprogramming but then people started seeing it and telling their friends. And suddenly, a sequel didn’t seem like a bad idea.

Now we have The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and, if it’s not quite got that shiny, new film intrigue, seeing it is certainly like visiting some old, dear friends.

If the film’s first trailer is any indication, writer Ol Parker and director John Madden may have just captured lightning in a bottle for the second time. Check it out after the jump.

Wrath Of The Titans Improves Upon The Original!

WRATH OF THE TITANS

Clash of the Titans was not an awful movie – or rather, wouldn’t have been if the 3D hadn’t been so bad – but it was no great fantasy-action flick, either. Wrath of the Titans may actually have less plot – less actual story – but it is superior in every way. In fact, it is a decent enough time-waster for a spring afternoon – it moves quickly, has glorious special effects, the CG effects have genuine heft and the 3D is quite wonderful.

Rango DVD Yields Unexpected Wonderfulness!

DVD

After first encountering Rango’s brilliance in 3D, I was pleased to discover that the 2D version on the DVD makes up for the loss of that extra dimension by being bright, sharp and gorgeous. An unexpected plus was the inclusion of an extra feature that’s not listed on the cover – two, if you include an extended version of the film.
