Movie Reviews: “Chappie” and “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel”

Uploaded on Thursday 5 March 2015


Two big films for you this weekend! First, we have “Chappie” from “District 9” writer/director Neill Blomkamp. This one’s about artificial intelligence and it stars Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, and Sigourney Weaver. Sharlto Copley voices Chappie and even Anderson Cooper stars as…himself! Is this better than the last Blomkamp movie, the half-baked “Elysium?” And is this worthy of praise ala “District 9?”

And then, we have “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.” The whole gang, including director John Madden, return for the sequel. But, do we really need another “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel?” This one stars Patel as well where he plays Sonny and this time, he wants to open another Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Is this as good as the first one?

See my thoughts on the new “Chappie” and “The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.”
