3:10 To Yuma - A must watch Western. Russel Crow and Christian Bale.
Seraphim Falls - Another Western. Amazing!!

X2 on both counts

3:10 is one of the few movies that actually does justice and more to the original.

Seraphim Falls has great cinematography, and the movie ends with a really positive and spiritual note (the ending is not everyone's cup of tea, though).

@ Hydrashok - I totally agree. Its one remake that is really up there with the original.

1408: First half is amazingly good, gripping and shocking at times. The second half drags for a while but then the ending is good.
Overall :: 3.5 Stars

I liked it too (like you said the first half more than the second). John Cusack really does carry the movie. And the build-up is really good. The spirit of Stephen King's "storyette" is very much there.

Taare Zameen Par

Watched the movie over the weekend.

Lovely background music, and excellent performance by Darsheel (the kid, sorry if i got the name wrong ). Aaamir seems to have done a good job donning the director's shoes. The acting from the actors who played the child's parents also deserves an applause.

Definitely worth a watch.
My Rating : ***

Wrist Cutters- A Love story
Wristcutters: A Love Story (2006)
So you commit suicide and instead of going away you land up in a place where all suicides are!
It’s a slightly slow movie, but I liked it all the same.

Where ? Got it in a soft copy format ?

Apparently the movie has two endings. The one released on Inida has the following one


Read the comments on the above video to figure out the other ending. But I loved the one we saw.

Watched National Treasure 2 (Book of secrets)

Really predictable for anyone who has watched the 1st part but has some twists and turns throught the movie which keeps one engrosed. Some nice car chase too. Would give 2.5/5 (about average)
