Just saw "Butterfly on a Wheel"

A decent kidnapping-based thriller with a sweet twist at the end. Started off well but nice pace but kind of tapered off a little in the middle. Finished off well with good climax. However, I feel Pierce Brosnan was a bit over qualified for the role.

5/10 would be my rating

just finished with Rogue Assassin. Jason Statham and Jet Li - plenty of action - Jet Li plays the assasin who is playing 2 Japanese gangs against each other with Statham (the cop)in hot pursuit for a personal reason too. A kind of nice twist is there in too

Just saw Tashan. Review coming up as soon as I recover from the shock of my life.
Although, RGV ki Aag is still the winner of the worst movie ever, but only just.

Guys why are you trashing Tashan.
It was the most senseless movie I have ever watched. It beat even Jaani Dushman and Rudrasksh.
This movie is so senseless that its thoroughly entertaining.
The action sequences rival Matrix, and Bachan does a better job of dodging bullets than Neo.
Ever seen a rickshaw do the drift? Well if you want to see Tashan and watch Anil Kapoor drifting a rickshaw better than Tiff Needel drifts the M3

Well, lets just say that we laughed and guffawed for the last ten - twenty minutes of the movie on its stupidity. Thats all.

Just how senseless can you get with the locations, songs, the action sequence ? Not to mention the revolving camera work - almost gave me a headache.

WARNING: The makers have left scope for a sequel. One of the two sidekicks of Anil Kapoor doesn't die remember ? So he survives and in the first shot of Tasan 2, he removes his mask and voila !!!! He actually is Anil Kapoor and the madness starts again.

People were walking out within 45 minutes from the theatre and almost 20% left in the interval. At the end I could tolerate no more but the doorman was insistent that there was time for the movie to end. The people got wild and literally forced him to open the exit door and ran into freedom !!

Had a gut feeling that Tashan would not be good but so bad Gautam? Looks like it turned out to be Yash Raj ka Tashan against us viewers

Why didnt you guys beat up the door man . Would be better entertainment than the movie itself

Nice time pass but almost a Rajinikant movie in terms of the hero's invulnerability.

Saw Blood Diamond yesterday. Awesome. On par with Shawshank Redemption in my books.

Also saw Chuck and Larry the day before. Average. Funny in parts.

Thanks to Hydra and all the other guys here who recommended all the movies. With the list of your recommendations, I did a bulk purchase of about 60 movies. It is so much easier than renting a scratched DVD each time.

Going by the trailers, I had expected the movie to be pretty bad, so, didn't bother to watch it. The music is probably the worst I've heard.
