Into the wild - One of the best movies i've ever seen. Watched it twice back to back! And then watched it again the next morning.

Its about Christopher McCandells, who donates his savings to charity and sets out on an adventure to Alaska, alone. Its about his experience on his way there. Beautiful picturization and awesome dialogues, and its a real life story.

It subsequent sequels don't have the same impact though.
Watching the remaining part of the movie 'The Angrez' left me disappointed. It had a good first half, and from then on it was all the way downhill. I had greater hopes from the movie, to say the least.

benbsb29 Guess you should watch the movie in 1 shot as it leaves you laughing atleast .
The sequels of this movie left much wanting and are not very good.

Your rating would go to at least 4-stars if you had watched the movie in one shot. Don't even think of watching its sequels as they are bad compared to the first. I didn't like the NRI track in the movie with their fake american accent, i felt it was unnecessarily prolonged and they couldn't act for jack****

Did you know the shorter fellow NRI is the director or producer of this movie?

Mr Angrez is a rocking movie but then Hyderabadi nawabs was more of a dissapointment.

Any one watched the 3rd part - Dhamaal in Dubai ?

Watched "No Country for Old Men" today, and I really didn't liked the ending. The movie built up nicely but it just lost it at the end. I was like "what the ****?" . And I just can't understand why did it get the Oscars, yes. it does have a nice beginning and it was gripping in middle but come on, how can a movie with such an ending get the best picture award.This is the kind of movie where the director ends the movie with metamorphic dialogues from an actor which may be fine with a book but not with a movie.The director probably just wanted to show how bad the world is and he has done it in a very nasty way.

I actually really liked the ending though I would probably have been just as happy with the movie ending with the guy running off after borrowing the shirt from the kid.

Speaking of movies that do not deserve Oscar nominations Id have to say that Michael Clayton got a lot more Oscar nominations than it deserved.

Just finished off with Chicago. I actually hate musicals but Chicago was quite good. A few of the songs were a little boring but the others really helped in telling the story. Overall an excellent movie and definitely worth watching. Iv been avoiding it all these years thinking Id get bored watching it but I must say that I really enjoyed Chicago cheers:

Now Im wondering whether to watch another movie or work on a project. hmmm

Yeah, even I thought that would've been a better ending then just Tommy Lee Jones narrating his dreams and the screen went blank. One thing I could deduce from his dream is that whatever his father has done he also have done the same thing, so that means what he does doesn't change the world at all.Or something of that sort.
Haven't seen micheal clayton yet.. Next in line is Hotel Rawanda and Pursuit of Happiness. Heard good comments about these two movies.

If you browse through the thread youll find Hyrdashok's explanation of the ending which makes the whole thing make sense.

Hotel Rwanda and Pursuit of Happyness are BRILLIANT movies. Add Lord of War and Blood Diamond to that list as well. Id watch Michael Clayton after watching these.

Leben der Anderen, Das (2006)

Its a very well made movie. German but I watched it with english sub titles.
Excellent acting and good scripting makes this a fine movie to enjoy.
Love the last scene in which the Guy says - Its for me.


Ane-eui aein-eul mannada (2006)
The movie tag line is: There isn't anything called adultery, there's only love.
Oh yes, the ending hits hard and I literally broke out laughing.
Fantastic scenary, most of the movie is a drive thru very beautiful locales.
Great music, loved the title track.
