Tech Billionaire Gideon Reeves takes control over Chicago police dept. District 13 in an attempt to find the killer who killed his best friend. In a turn of events where the misfortune of the city and the interest by a tech mogul turns the available cops in the city to initiate a powerful combination of crime fighting unit.

Yes, the lead character is as expected, arrogant, billionaire and a genius who uses drones wherever possible to assist the police in their job. Overall the story line and the moral is an age old recipe which depicts that the team work saves the day, but, the way in which it is addressed is the most interesting part which involves the problem solving and the aptitude of coolness that the technology brings is what makes it an interesting show.

We all got a hint when a new Spider-Man was introduced as a member of Avengers in the third chapter of Captain America what we fans have seen. Sony pictures scraped The Amazing Spider-Man franchise with a new teen Spider-Man movie played by Tom Holland. Though Spiderman by itself is a great character, but is supported by Iron-Man in the new series which shows the collaboration of Marvel and Sony Pictures in business perspective.

There are couple of things that can be expected in the movie based on the short trailer that was released. The first and foremost is the amazing work on the costume: eye expression that can be seen in the suit and the wings that spread out when the Spidey goes for a big jump and the smart suit is customizable. The amazing action sequences, the dilemma and identity crisis based on the treatment by famous Tony Stark which will work as a basis on which Spidey evolves as a full-fledged superhero. In fact Andrew Garfield (who previously played Spider-Man) has expressed his best compliments on Tom Holland playing the new neighbourhood hero.

A lot of Buzz is created around Sony Pictures ever since the announcement of the movie Venom and even a release date of 5th October, 2018.
Being an enemy of Spider-Man the plot of the movie remains a mystery as a whole movie is dedicated to a negative character. Though the turn of evil to a good character by the end of the movie in a superhero flick has happened earlier, What would be the path the movie would take.
The slot for the Venom movie came in with an other super-hero  movie packed its production plans. It might be similar to Suicide Squad where all baddies team up for some good action and good deed, what actually is in the store is a question that’s worth waiting for.

You would have seen movies about going to Mars or exploring space which majorly depicts the science and the curiosity of man for outer space. But, when you watch “The Space Between Us” you would see quite the contrary. Gardner Elliot played by Asa Butterfield, the first human born on Mars for an astronaut is a 16 year old, who has spent his entire life on Mars dreaming about returning to earth to experience and meet the only person who knows him from earth who would eventually join him in his journey to find his father.

Raised by scientists and a romantic by heart is not a candidate for the journey to earth because of the health complications during birth. In this era of curiosity and love about Mars and Outer Space, this move is refresher to appreciate the only Earth we have and view it from the perspective of someone who cannot be on earth even though he wants to be.

A true story of courage, purpose and belief moulded into a fine young American Desmond Doss joining army with a conviction of not to use arms during World war II is an example of Kindness in the face of violence.

With a firm decision to serve the nation in the time of need but holding on to one’s beliefs Desmond Doss is a true inspiration and showing bravery and selflessness. In the battle of Okinawa against the Japanese Desmond Doss saved lives of 75 fellow men alone and without firing a single bullet. Andrew Garfield by playing the lead character has done justice to the role. The Scene of after war where Desmond praying to god asking “Give me one more….” to save is a moment where the irony of war is pictured. Its a must see for every one especially the war movie fans.

Based on a true events, a story carved to show the rise of the lives three African-
American women in the 60’s despite all the obstacles in the work place that along with the
obvious issues and the struggle to gain equality shows the true spirit of service,
kindness and brilliance which made NASA one of the frontiers in the field of Space
Research.
The movie has elements of basic needs of humans which were not made available to all
because of the color which captures the audience and question the state of people during
that era.
The story is of a brilliant Mathematician, an engineer and programmers who were working as
computers (assigned temporarily to various departments within NASA) who will be provided an
opportunity mixed with the hardships and challenges which has to be overcome by the lead
characters to get their chance to live their dreams and upto their potential. Overall, the
story is captivating and leaves you with a feel of inspiration.

A forensic scientist Barry Allen(Grant Gustin) with the Central City police force, gets struck by lightning after an accident. After nine months in coma, he wakes up to discover that he can move very fast.

The CW ‘s The Flash, developed by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Geoff Johns. Starring Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker, Candice Patton, Tom Cavanagh, Carlos Valdes  and Jesse L. Martin. The Flash is based on the DC Comics characters.

The show is very satisfying because of the fact that The Flash is very close to its comic book origins. And as The Flash is aired every week it feels just like reading a comic book and waiting for the next.

The VFX is really good. Actors bring in raw emotions into the series to make it dramatic. This superhero TV-series is for genre fans as wells as novices.
