A Quiet Place (2018)Directed by John KrasinskiI watched this movie on a recent trip to Vijayawada, and I went in pretty much cold. I hadn't seen the trailer, and had only the plot synopsis on the BookMyShow app to go by. Probably, that worked better towards my enjoyment of the movie.The setup is simple but intriguing. It is a few years in the future. Most of humanity has been wiped out by creatures that are sensitive to sound. Survivors have to literally not make any noise, using sign language to communicate. The movie follows a family in this situation.The movie is taut, and at a 91 minute running time, is extremely efficient. It is very well made, with great cinematography and acting. For a movie using sound as a critical element of the plot, the sound design is fantastic – balancing silence and sound beautifully. Rarely have I seen a movie that actually makes the audience wary of making a sound, lest something important is missed. This is a movie that deserves to be seen in a theatre, without distraction. I enjoyed it very much. Do go see it, while it is a horror movie, the focus is more on building suspense and tension than jump scares. I drew Emily Blunt from the movie. The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. It's the size of a ₹2 coin. #333 / 10-Apr-18#aquietplace #DailyMovieSketch

I'm posting this picture on both my accounts @karthikabhiram and @dailymoviesketch. If you've been following me you probably know that I was travelling the major part of last week. That's why I wasn't able to draw anything new till now.On the recent travel though, I watched two very good movies, John Krasinski's "A Quiet Place" at Capital Cinemas Vijayawada, and Sukumar's "Rangasthalam" at AVG Cinemas Bhimavaram. Before travelling, I had also watched Alex Garland's "Annihilation" on Netflix. Wanted to do small drawings of all three, have done two so far.Will scan these two and post them soon, on @dailymoviesketch along with my reviews of the movies. Please catch "A Quiet Place" in theatres soon, it's really good and deserves to be seen on a big screen with a good sound system. Both of the movies, coincidentally, use sound as an element of their respective plots!#vsco #samsung #galaxys7 #hellohyderabad #bizarrehyderabad #DailyMovieSketch #rangasthalam #aquietplace

[Drawing of @ranadaggubati holding the Infinity Gauntlet] Avengers: Infinity War (2018)Directed by Joe and Anthony RussoSo it's April, and the release of @avengers: #InfinityWar is only a few weeks away. Recently, there was news that Rana Daggubati would be dubbing the voice of Thanos, for the Telugu version of the movie. Marvel India released a Telugu trailer (the "There was an idea" one), and I thought the dubbing job was really good (superior to the Hindi trailers of this movie and Deadpool 2). Before the trailer actually begins, there's a shot of Rana holding the Infinity Gauntlet.I chose to draw that for #DailyMovieSketch. The thing is, the shot in the trailer is an extreme close up, so I had to look at other images to complete his face and the gauntlet.Hope Rana likes the drawing if he sees it The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on my Brustro sketchbook.#332 / 2-Apr-18#avengers #infinitywar #avengersinfinitywar #ranadaggubati #Thanos #telugu #chaibisket #marvel #marvelstudios #marvelfanart

Work in Progress drawing of @ranadaggubati holding the Infinity Gauntlet. He is voicing Thanos in the Telugu dubbed version of "Avengers: Infinity War". This sketch is being done using multiple reference images. They released a Telugu Dubbed Trailer (the "There was an idea…" one), which I thought was very well done, and you see Rana at the beginning of that. But his full face isn't visible, so I'm looking at other images to fill in the gaps. I would have probably finished the drawing by now, but I have been very busy at work with long hours in the office, so it's taking more time. Will finish over the weekend and post a scanned version once done. #vsco #samsung #galaxys7 #samsungsnapshooter #hellohyderabad #handsinframe #avengers #InfinityWar #DailyMovieSketch #AvengersInfinityWar #telugu #ranadaggubati #Thanos #infinitygauntlet #chaibisket

Pacific Rim Uprising (2018)Directed by Steven S DeKnight2013's "Pacific Rim" was Guillermo del Toro's loving homage to movies featuring giant robots and monsters – the plot had alien creatures entering our world through an interdimensional portal deep within the Pacific Ocean. To fight these Kaiju, humanity builds giant robots called Jaegers, operated by two pilots. The sequel, directed by "Daredevil" showrunner Steven S DeKnight, takes place 10 years after humanity won the war against the Kaiju and sealed the Breach. Jake Pentecost (John Boyega), son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba's character from Part 1), now scavenges and sells Jaeger parts. A run-in with 15 year old Amara (Cailee Spaeny) results in them getting enlisted into the Defence Corps, and after a rogue Jaeger attack, they realize that the alien race behind the Kaijus – the Precursors –  are still a threat to humanity's existence. I enjoyed this sequel more than I thought I would. While it does not compare with the original (more on that later), it was quite entertaining and the action scenes were nicely done. John Boyega and Cailee Spaeny were extremely likeable in their roles. I also appreciated the ideas that they tried to bring in. However, the world building and development of the Kaijus and Jaegers weren't as good as in the first movie. The last third of the movie felt very rushed. They shot this in 2.39:1 as opposed to 1.85, I felt the more taller aspect ratio suited this kind of movie better. The music is serviceable but I really missed Ramin Djawadi's epic theme. They only played it twice in the entire film. I re watched the first one on Netflix (it's there on Amazon Prime as well), and it was superior. Del Toro sure loves his creatures and one can make out the effort that went into conceptualising them and putting them up on screen. It's not as involved here. I drew Cailee Spaeny as Amara. She was one of the best things about the movie. The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil and @Prismacolor pencils on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. #331 / 25-Mar-18#pacificrim #pacificrimuprising #caileespaeny #guillermodeltoro #kaiju #jaeger

Deadpool 2 (2018)Directed by David LeitchWhile everyone has been raving about the "Avengers: Infinity War" trailer and poster recently (I've been enjoying all the memes too – including some really funny Hindi and Telugu ones), there's another movie (a non-Marvel Marvel movie, for now) for which we were expecting a trailer to drop any day – and it's finally here! A few days ago, there was a worrying bit of news that "Deadpool 2" didn't perform well in test screenings. Then, word came out that it actually outscored the original, and that reshoots added more of what worked with test audiences. We'll know how it actually is on May 18, but this trailer is all kinds of fantastic!This is the first full trailer for "Deadpool 2", the ones that came out earlier were teasers with only a little actual footage from the movie. This one gives us an idea about the plot of the film – Cable (Josh Brolin) wanting to kill a kid and Deadpool stopping this, and the formation of the X-Force.Here are some things one can observe from this trailer – – Deadpool, Dopinder, Vanessa, Blind Al, Negasonic, Colossus, Weasel all back from the first film- "All out of Love" opening, DP entering Dopinder's cab- Deadpool chops and kicks a guy's head off- DP's comment about Cable, "What in the fucksickle is this"- Wade spinning in Prof X's wheelchair, in a hall with portraits of Lincoln and Obama, the X-Mansion?- "We're going to form a super duper fucking crew, tough, morally flexible and young enough to carry their own franchise for 10 to 12 years. We'll be known as – X-Force!" to which Domino says "Isn't that a bit derivative?"- "Now, let's go get our fuck on!"- Deadpool in prison restraints hitting a guy's face with a concrete brick and saying "Tell me they got that in slow motion!"- Fighting dirty – a twist on the hole in the hand gag from the first movie- Deadpool wearing a jersey with the X symbol (which is what I drew here)- Wade discussing with Weasel that they probably won't make a 3Can't wait to see the movie! This drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil and @prismacolor pencils on Brustro sketchbook and scanned.#330 / 23-Mar-18#DailyMovieSketch

Shaitaan Haveli (2018)Created by Varun ThakurStand-up comedian Varun Thakur created and stars in this Amazon Prime Web Series. This is an homage to the 1980s low budget pulp horror movies made by the Ramsay Brothers, and includes all the tropes one might expect – an old mansion, a witch, an ancient 200 year old evil, a sorcerer – and weaves it into a comedy-horror story. The storyline concerns down-on-his-luck director Hariman (Bhupesh Singh – who also sings the title track), who decides to shoot a horror movie hoping it will be a hit, in order to pay off his debt to gangster Ponty. So he assembles a cast and crew, and goes off to an abandoned mansion to shoot his film, but an emerging evil may threaten the lives of the crew.The show is pretty entertaining and emulates the source material quite well, right down to using plot themes and character names as well. While I enjoyed watching it, I thought they didn't push the comedy or horror elements enough. I did get the feeling at times, that they were trying to be funny but it didn't always work, especially when attempting to blend the 1980s tropes with more modern elements. I also thought it was kind of predictable at times. The best part of the series though, is that it's quite short – just 8 half-hour episodes. I completed it in just two sittings, so even if you don't find it that good, it goes by very quickly.The episodes credit Monica Gupta as "Chudail", I drew her. She looks quite like a deadite from Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" movies. The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil, @prismacolor pencils and a white gel ink pen on my Brustro sketchbook, and scanned.A bit of trivia about this drawing is that, much of it was drawn at Annapurna Film Institute yesterday morning, footage of which would be part of a documentary project. More details on that eventually.#329 / 17-Mar-18#dailymoviesketch #shaitaanhaveli #amazonprime #chudail #bollywood #ramsaybrothers #varunthakur

Philip K Dick's Electric Dreams (2018)Developed by Ronald D Moore and Michael DinnerAmerican author Philip K Dick (referred to sometimes as PKD) has written stories that have been adapted into some of the most famous science fiction movies in the last 40 years, from "Blade Runner", to "Total Recall", "Minority Report" and others. "Electric Dreams" is a 10-episode anthology show, featuring loose adaptations from his stories. I watched the entire show on Amazon Prime, over the span of a few days, and enjoyed it a lot. The episodes are really well made and the ideas are really interesting. The name of the show is taken from the title of the book "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", the inspiration for "Blade Runner". When one watches the show, one can't help comparing it with "Black Mirror", but there's a difference. "Black Mirror" itself a brilliant show, is science fiction more oriented towards tech, whereas PKD's stories can take a step towards fantasy, with episodes featuring space travel for example. Themes of reality and identity are explored in these stories, and it makes for very interesting watching. Some episodes though, could easily have been part of either show. I would highly recommend watching this show, if you're a science fiction fan, you'll love it. I drew Holliday Grainger as Honor, a "Teep" (telepath), from the episode "The Hood Maker". It was drawn with 0.5mm 2B pencil and @Prismacolor pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. #328 / 12-Mar-18
