saw body of lies - its a good plot and overall i agree on 6 to 7 out of 10
leo dicaprio is keeping up well with his tag of doing different movies - aviator, blood diamond and now this. It seems he was also doing off beat movies as a child actor too, titanic was the only one off track move

Finally watched 'You dont mess with the Zohan" by Adam Sandler. A absolute laughter riot. The uncut version has some unwanted vulgarity.

On the subject of laughter, "Sex drive" also provides loads of it, but well, most are the vulgar kind. Not for the Indian sensibilities and certainly not watchable with family.

My Cousin Vinny ( 1992)

This is one of the rarest situation based comedies that i enjoyed last night after a long time. Story : Joe Pesci who is a lawyer trying to save his cousin from a wrong murder accusation.

The funny thing is Joe passes the bar after 6 attempts and this case would be his first ever court room appearance as a defendant. He does not even know the basic court room procedures right from what type of attire to be worn in a court.

His fiancee played by Marisa Tomei did a fantastic support role where she is a smart cookie to his dumb character and chips in with her help to ensure he wins this case.

Joe Pesci is fantastic in this role and Marisa won the best supporting actress in the academy awards during 1993 and Fred Gywne as the Judge is delight to watch.

It is a must watch movie

4.5/5

Saw this one a couple of years back on tv and really liked it. A simple comedy is often good enough to make you laugh. Joe Pesci was too good as a loser lawyer!

Kickass movie! Watched it several times. Used to come on Star Movies quite often. In addition to Joe Pesci's antics, Marisa Tomei is absolutely steaming in the movie.

Ghajini is inspired by the South Movie of the same name. It starred Surya and Asin in the lead roles.
Big hit.

Memento and Ghajini share the same idea. The main protagonist looses short term memory. So has to depend on notes to refresh himself.

Memento is a way superior movie. The direction and flow were simply put awesome.
The masala ghajini is a revenge drama about human trade.

Ghajini (2005 film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Memento Movie
