Felon (2008)-

a movie where a guy is convicted of murder due to the strict penal system and shows the life behind bars.

a very good and excellent movie.

Stop-Loss (2008)-

a movie where they show how soldiers are stop lossed and are forced to fight in iraq even though there isnt a war. it isnt a documentary.

another excellent movie.

Blow (2001)-

its an old movie wonder if any one has seen it.

its a must its a story of a drug smuggler of his rise and fall a excellent movie. very good acting by johnny deep.


Big Stan (2007)-

another funny movie in which one can see rob Schneider as a hero.

he is a weak con who has to go to prison and is scared to prisoners who hurt him (in the dirtiest way) learns martial arts. avery funny movie.

Goodfellas (8.8/10 IMDB)

Excellent gangster flick. Ray Liotta, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci are superb. I feel that Joe outdid both Al and Ray in this movie. Must watch.

Oops, it should be Robert De Niro and not Al Pacino as Jimmy in that movie. My bad.

He accomplishes his dream in the end. His journey from a small NZ town, Invercargill to Bonneville is brilliantly shot. Anthony Hopkins as Burt Munro is one of the most impeccable performances in cinema I have seen in a long time.

Superb movie. 5/5 rating
Saw this movie -- "The World's Fastest Indian" yesterday on some TV channel (an't remember which one though).

It's AWESOME. One of the best auto based movies ever I must say. A zillion times better and more riveting then the current 'fast & furious' types.

Folks if you haven't see it; do see it. it's a MUST SEE.

Oh yes, Worlds Fastest Indian, a definite watch for everyone. Its an awesome movie, and very heart warming.

Also saw Singh is King last night... ill just say i was exxpecting something better. It was okayish entertainment, the whole story just didnt piece together right.

Gautam, how come you are from Mumbai? you seem to have been born in south in your last janam, the passion for movies that you have is typically found in AP and Tamil Nadu. Where people die trying to get tickets for the first show on the first day of release of any superstar ( Chiranjeevi, Rajnikanth etc) movies.

And,in hyderabad there is a huge fan following of Mithun's movies where i have seen fans take out a rally on the first day of the show and dance on street and garland the photo during the rally.

I must say from the west you alone are giving them a stiff competition

Btw, if you don't mind, can we know how much you spend on movies in a month? Ignore if you'd not like to share

As i love spooky movies, Phoonk is something i am not going to miss out because RGV is best at this genre

Hey Buddy,

So when have you planned the Mumbai Meri jaan show for?

Am assuming it's IMAX, as usual.

Its a general belief that ,In AP, Cinema comes after food,clothes and shelter in the Need hierarchy.
Apparently,this is why the Telugu film Industry is the biggest in the country and a very successful art director in the business told me that the scale of a Telugu movie is 3-times that of any other language(excepting Bollywood).

I don't know about that but this movie watching habit was passed on by my GF. I was not a person who would go to movie theaters and watch a 3 hour long movie. Of course the multiplex culture did help a lot.

I used to love Mithun movies.
