Not any recent ones,

October Sky

It is a TRUE story about three boys, a teacher, their dreams and their coal mining town where everyone ends up doing exactly that - mining coal. Set in the era when the Russians launch the first satellite "Sputnik". These boys get inspired and dream to build one themselves.

Rating 4.5/5

Into The Wild

A boy leaves his home and sets out to live in the forest for he doesn't find pleasure in the material things. An amazing TRUE story. A tad slow but worth a watch.

Rating 4/5

Sleepless In Seattle

Another classic from Tom Hanks. After loosing his wife, he is very alone. Though he realizes it but doesn't accept it until his son one day calls up a radio station to announce that his Dad needs a wife!!
A lovely light hearted movie.

Rating 3.5/5

The Oxford Murders

A murder mystery that finds a young math student and his professor riddled about the murder of the land lady the student was staying with. Some more murders later, the situation is a mess!! A fast paced thriller which will keep you hooked and at occasions even throw off balance with the twists and turns in the plot.

Rating 4/5

Watched 'A Wednesday' Brilliant movie a must watch by all

Watched (HBO\Star Movies)"HouseSitter (1992)" featuring Steve MArtin & Goldie Hawn, its nice fresh movie with somewhat unusual(may be impractical too) plot but well directed by Frank Oz

Movies I watched during the weekend,

Righteous Kill - Watched it just for De' Nero and Al Pacino. Wasn't dissappointed by them, though the movie as a whole was passe!

Untouchables - Another De' Nero classic, watched it second time in fact. De Nero at his best.

The Hurricane - Umm. Should say, it's very inspiring but falls short of my all time favourite The Cindrella Man.

Simone - A average comedy movie from Al Pacino. Nothing much to write about.

You don't mess with the Zohan - 1/5

Comedies are not supposed to be like this.

Watched "Subramanyapuram" (Tamil) today. average movie, but definitely not waste of time.
The "romantic" scenes were very cute and probably the only standout parts in a movie that is otherwise a very regular crime drama that seems to be in vogue these days.

Joint Security Area(Korean)
The story was slow to kick off, but once it did, it was pretty interesting. The basic premise of the movie is very similar to the usual investigative movies set in a military background, but it has enough twists in it to keep it interesting. also portrays the main characters quite well.

Where do you get to see these asian movies? Also, do you still have time after shooting so many pictures on a daily basis?

the photography takes only 15 mins, and that too not every day. only when the skies are good.I watch most movies like serials. in bits and pieces. occasionally get time to sitdown and watch the whole movie in one shot, then its heaven.doesnt happen often.

my source for obscure movies? piratebay.com

Absolutely agree. Watched this movie last night . Brilliantly made. Naseer and Anupam both are awesome. Gives one something to think about.
Saw people cheering in the hall after a long time.

1920 is also not a bad one time watch, the heroine fits the part perfectly hee hee

I watched the 3D version at the cinema and trust me it was amazing!

The story otherwise is decent enough for a one time watch.

But I would recommend it for the 3D factor!
4/5
