#NoSpoilers Thoughts on “Venom” — I watched this movie on Monday night, and quite enjoyed it. Actually, considering the mixed feedback that the movie has gotten, I liked it more than expected.The movie as the trailers indicate, opens with a space probe crashing on Earth. The craft was launched by the Life Foundation, run by the movie's villain Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), bringing back alien symbiotes which he plans to use for his schemes. One such attaches itself to journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Drake will stop at nothing to get his specimen back.The movie was entertaining, Tom Hardy gives it his all, as both Eddie and the voice of the Venom symbiote. It's fast paced and easy to watch but ultimately I felt it was very ordinary and does not match the quality of better comic book movies. They went with a more lighter tone than initially intended — the movie was supposed to be aiming for an adult rating and not the PG-13 that it ultimately got (maybe the studio intervened to make it so). Would an R rating made a difference despite the fundamental structure of the film? I'm not sure but we would have had some creative deaths to see.Music was quite Nine Inch Nails-esque by Ludwig Goransson, very different from his “Black Panther” score. I thought it was well done. The visuals were nice too (cinematography by Matthew Libatique). The credits animation was nice, there is one mid credit scene and one at the end. #vsco #google #pixel2xl #teampixel #flatlay #venom #DailyMovieSketch #pencilart

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)This sketch is based on the #Inktober2018 prompt word "whale". I knew the plot of Star Trek IV involved whales, but I hadn't actually seen the movie. So a few days ago I watched it on @primevideoin and then drew this sketch.The movie begins with an alien probe appearing and heading towards Earth. The signal it emits disrupts all of Starfleet communication and disables their ships. Admiral Kirk and his crew determine that the alien craft is broadcasting a signal that's actually the song of humpback whales, now extinct in the 23rd Century. So they go back in time to 1986, to bring back two whales which should help them respond to the probe's signal.The storyline sounds absurd but the movie is very well done and executed with sincerity, and is very entertaining. I drew Spock from the movie, the drawing was done with a Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen and scanned.#ballpointpen #startrek #spock #llap#379 / 17-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Andhadhun (2018)Directed by Sriram RaghavanThis is a sketch based on today's #Inktober2018 prompt word "Cruel". There are certain very dark moments in this film, where characters really do cruel things to others.I watched this movie a couple of days back and enjoyed it greatly. It was a very well made movie, constantly throwing twists and turns at the audience. I liked that it was really unpredictable, and had terrific acting. The story concerns Ayushmann Khurrana as Akash, a blind pianist, and a murder. Anything more said would be a spoiler, so I'll just say that this Sriram Raghavan movie is highly recommended.The best performance in the movie comes from Tabu, and seeing that it has @radhikaofficial in it, I guess it should be released on @netflix_in soon!Sriram Raghavan is no stranger to directorial flourishes – there was that long take sequence that went along with the 'Raabta' song in "Agent Vinod", "Badlapur" was a terrific revenge story, and I remember "Ek Hasina Thi" was really dark when I saw it back in 2004. Here, the piano music pieces are really well done and there is a scene where music is playing and that is almost like a soundtrack to what is happening on screen.This must be one of the few Hindi movies where there are no traditional opening credits, it opens with a bang and the credits are at the end.I normally don't draw animals, but this is a sketch of a blind rabbit that is shown at the opening of the movie. It's more than just symbolic, as you'll find out at the end.It was drawn with a black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen, and scanned.#ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen #andhadhun#378 / 11-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Akira (1988)Directed by Katsuhiro OtomoI had been very busy with work the last month, just got done with a major Recruitment activity, so now have a little more time for drawing. I took a couple of days off from work as well. Today, I completed this drawing I started earlier – based on the 1988 Japanese anime film "Akira". This isn't exactly in line with the #Inktober2018 prompt word "flowing" for Day 10, but I'm still tagging it as such (@leimelendres used the same prompt word and drew a still from the same film coincidentally). The film is fantastic, set in 2019 Neo Tokyo, with young Tetsuo Shima running into a group of psi powered individuals, resulting in his mutation and pursuit by multiple groups. The animation is exquisitely detailed, the music is great and it has an engaging story.The sketch shows Tetsuo in a grotesque body horror scene with flesh and technology sprouting from his body.I started the sketch in September actually, though I only finished it now – and used the same style as my other #Inktober sketches this year, using a black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen.#Akira #Anime #Tetsuo #Kaneda #ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen#377 / 10-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Moon (2009)Directed by Duncan JonesSketch based on the second #Inktober2018 prompt word “tranquil”. That word made me think of the Sea of Tranquility, which is on the Moon, and though that doesn't figure in the film at all, it reminded me of this 2009 science fiction movie. Sam Rockwell plays astronaut Sam Bell, who is stationed on the Sarang moon base, the only crew member of a mining operation. He is nearing the end of his three year contract, and it’s just two weeks before he has to go home. When an accident happens he finds himself questioning his sanity and realises things may not be what they seem to be. “Moon” is a brilliantly made and superbly acted movie, with Kevin Spacey providing the voice for the robot GERTY. I loved the production design, the cinematography, effects (all done on a very low budget) and the superb music score by Clint Mansell. I enjoyed the movie more on second viewing.This sketch was done with black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen and scanned.#ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen #moon #duncanjones #samrockwell#376 / 3-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Predator 2 (1990)Directed by Stephen HopkinsOne more quick (15-20 min) sketch for today, not related to the #Inktober2018 prompt word though. I have not seen the latest “The Predator” but re-watched this very entertaining sequel from 1990. This is from the scene in the abbatoir towards the end of the movie where Mike Harrigan (Danny Glover) shoots the Predator. This movie is fast paced and has good action scenes and is set in the then near-future of LA 1997, where the Predator has a new hunting ground — the hot sweltering concrete jungle with drug gang wars. The sketch was done with ballpoint pens and scanned. #predator #predator2 #ballpoint #pen #ballpointpen#375 / 2-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Crank (2006)Directed by Neveldine/TaylorHere's the finished sketch of the video I posted a bit earlier. This is based on the first prompt word for #Inktober this year, "poisonous". This is Jason Statham as Chev Chelios, who at the beginning of the movie finds he's been poisoned with an asian cocktail – one that will stop his heart unless he keeps generating adrenaline. It's a fun action movie.The sketch was done with a black Bic ballpoint pen, and I also used a little bit of red ballpoint pen. I plan to do one more sketch also for Day 2 of Inktober today. This is a scan of the drawing.#Inktober2018 #Crank #ballpoint #pen#374 / 2-Oct-18

“Fuck you, Chelios!” Been really busy with work the last few weeks as I mentioned in the earlier post, so no new sketches for a while. Today I got a day of rest after a long time, and the next five days are going to be another hectic stretch. Today though, I thought I'd do a drawing, for #Inktober. This is Jason Statham as Chev Chelios after he discovers he’s been poisoned with a Chinese Cocktail, from the 2009 movie “Crank”. I didn't find the movie that great, and it seems to be intentionally offensive, but still pretty interesting and this is what I thought of for the prompt word Poisonous for Day 1 of @inktober. I will post a scan of this sketch, the previous one and the one more I’m planning to do, once they are complete.#DailyMovieSketch #teampixel @inktober #Inktober2018

A new sketch (in progress) after a long time. I posted this on @karthikabhiram, I thought I'd post it here as well as I've not put up anything here in a while. I'll complete this drawing tonight and post a scan. This is Tetsuo from the fantastic anime "Akira" (1988). #vsco #teampixel #DailyMovieSketch #akira #tetsuo

[#AnInchAugust × #DailyMovieSketch — Drawing of @radhikaofficial from @netflix_in’s “Ghoul”] Ghoul (2018)Directed by Patrick GrahamThere haven’t been new drawings here for a while now because I have been really busy with work. I will continue to be busy with running recruitment drives through the month of September, so updates here will be sporadic. Anyway, I got some time now to draw and post this.Over the last weekend I watched this three episode miniseries called “Ghoul” on Netflix. From British filmmaker Patrick Graham, this is a Phantom / Blumhouse production. India has become a police state in the near future. Meghdoot 31 is a terrorist holding / interrogation facility, with holding cells underground and the entire base cut off from the outside world (to the extent of the windows being blacked out so that no one knows the passage of time inside). It is here that a dangerous terrorist is transferred — and there seems to be something supernatural about him. Radhika Apte plays Nida Rahim, an interrogator who has been assigned to that base.I liked the atmosphere that they created, the isolated setting (sort of like a John Carpenter “The Thing” vibe) is quite nice and lends itself well to supernatural horror. Had they trimmed a bit of the backstory this could have easily been a two hour feature film rather than three 50 minute episodes. I liked it overall but there was a definite feeling of familiarity and it was all rather predictable. Worth watching though. There are quite a few memes that have come up recently commenting on how Radhika Apte is in everything that Netflix India has released. Both her and Netflix are also in on the joke. I drew her as Nida, the drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B mechanical pencil on paper and scanned. White highlights were added with a white gel pen. Drawing is one square inch in size (this may be the last one I'm doing for the #AnInchAugust challenge). Like my drawing of @mipalkarofficial I'll post a photo of this on my @karthikabhiram account too. #ghoul #radhikaapte#373 / 30-Aug-18
