Just finished watching VANTAGE POINT.

Its a story of an attempted assassination of the American President and the attempt is shown many times from the perspectives of the people present in the scene. I liked it.

depends how cool and easy your parents take the topics like homosexuality. I went with my mom today. She dint like it to such an extent like how I did though. She did comment later that its a more fun if I watched it with friends, and I agree on that. There was a gang on college girls sitting beside me and they had loads of fun. So if your parents are ok with such topics, go ahead. And for small children, its better not to tag them along.

Is this movie starring John Cusack and Ray Liotta? If yes, its really an awesome movie where Ray is transporting a criminal to a different prison.

I saw this movie like 20 mins and the disc got stuck. I found it really engrossing until then. I need to check with Bigflix if they can give me a better CD so i complete it.

Same here.
Some of the scenes were absolutely hillarious. Specially when Kiron Kher calls Boman Irani "Daayan" !!!

And when she gives them her blessings... x ten times

Vantage Point

I just loved the way this movie unfolded, and the screenplay. Going through the sequence of events through the eyes of the different protagonists surely was a novel touch.

The plot which involved the assassination of the US President while at a peace summit is not new, but the way in which the story unfolds, and the gripping action surely makes this movie a not-to-be-missed.

Bennyboy Rating : ****

Watched THE MIDNIGHT MEAT TRAIN yesterday. A gripping story and narration but felt that they lost the plot in the climax. The movie could have been ended in a better way .

Note: This one is not for weak hearted people.
