Rush [2013]

Genre: Biography, Drama, Action

Rating: 8.5/10.

I’ve seen a lot of great movies in the past one month. And this one is among the best. Got to love Formula 1 movies, one of the greatest rivalries that F1 has witnessed, between James Hunt & Niki Lauda.. Great direction by Ron Howard. And well portrayed by the actors. Among the two finest Formula 1 movies/documentaries seen, hard to pick which is better.. Senna or Rush..

The Wolf of Wall Street [2013]

Genre: Biography, Comedy, Crime

Rating: 8/10.

With Martin Scorsese, you never know what to expect, but one thing is for sure, the movie will surely have a hell a lot of swearing. Based on the real life of Jordan Belfort and some fictionalization, this movie is all about one man – Leonardo DiCaprio.. Give him the goddamn Oscar already. The movie could have been cut short by around 20 mins easily. It drags a little in the middle stages. But its hilarious, unexpected and witty. Quite a different Scorsese movie from the ones in the past.

Ip Man 2 [2010]

Genre: Action, Biography, Drama

Rating: 8/10.

Following the sequence of the first movie, Ip Man now is settled in Hong Kong and continues his legacy over there. The action scenes are a little wired, but still great to watch. Donnie Yen is still in top form. There’s a brilliant fight scene featuring Ip Man and Hong. And the final fight between Ip Man and the English boxer. The ending is a little bit of Rocky IV. But the movie is still a treat to watch.

Ip Man [2008]

Genre: Action, Biography, Drama

Rating: 8.5/10.

One of the best martial arts movies of the last decade. A tale about Yip Man who was the first martial arts teacher who taught Wing Chun. Donnie Yen is brilliant as Yip Man; just watch his fists move up, down, left and right like a machine. Not sure how much of the story is actual truth, but the action scenes are fantastic. Bruce Lee was his actual student in real life.

Senna [2010]

Genre: Sport, Biography, Documentary

Rating: 9/10.

It was a co-incidence that this movie completed downloaded on May 1. Senna died on that day 18 years ago. He remains one of the greatest drivers F1 has ever seen. A documentary on his career and his rivalry with Alain Prost. Its just perfect. The last 10 mins are heart wrenching. If you are F1 fan or not, you HAVE to watch this movie.
