Movies: Sonic the Hedgehog, Fantasy Island, Shubh Mangal Zyada Saacvhan

Movie 1:  Sonic the Hedgehog

This film is targeted to children.  Sonic is a computer generated character by Sega Games and Paramount Pictures.  It’s a challenge to describe if you haven’t seen it.  The story line and script zips along quite quickly.  Jim Carrey plays the kooky villain.  Overall, it’s a well executed silly comedy designed for children.

Movie 2:  Fantasy Island

Remember the television series by the same name from the 70’s?  It was intriguing entertainment for its day.  

This version is more or less the same except the plot takes the characters on more of a horror path.  What a shame.  Mainly because the set is modern, feels current and intriguing…until it gets weird and horrific.  Don’t waste your time or money.

Movie 3:  Shubh Mangal Zyada Saacvhan

This film was banned in much of the Middle East due to its positive portrayal of same sex couples.  It’s the first Indian film about a same sex relationship since India decriminalized homosexuality in 2018.

It’s a huge Bollywood production.  It’s listed as a Comedy/Drama/Romance.  It’s concurrently goofy, graceful, funny, and forgiving.  It’s worth seeking out.  Hindi with English subtitles.

  1. None of these was, or will be on my radar. Thanks for spending your time and money and sparing the rest of us! Are these the only available films in the hinterland? What else has been “band” in various countries?

  2. Thanks for these. Bad reviews are every bit as useful as good ones. And the Hindi movie looks quite interesting. I hope we get it in SF.
