I watched 'Where the truth lies', yesterday.
It's a suspense story about the death of a girl involving two popular showmen of the time. The mystery unfolds 15 years down the line , as a writer who's writing the biography of one of the stars, tries to get the truth out about the death. It's fast paced and a well made movie. The suspense is held till the end.

All in all it is good entertainer. I'll rate it at 3.5/5

I watched Sweet Home alabama: Its about this gal who moves to NYC from alabama 7 yrs back but goes home to finish some unfinished business. It shows how she has changed and the way it affects the ppl around her. Pretty interesting movie which will make you feel nice about visitin home

Watch it if you like romantic movies as i would rate this as one of those movies you must watch.

3.5/5

Default who killed the electric car

i saw the movie " who killed the electric car". well, this is a documentary but reveals a lot of truth about how deliberate policy makers ensure its death.

Watched another classic movie "The insider " today. Al Pacino and Russel Crowe at their best. I would rate it 4.5 /5 if you are interested in News/Tobacco industry story. A great Drama to watch.

Notorious - Based on the life of superstar rapper Biggie Smalls, aka Notorious B.I.G. Great biographical movie, starting with the early life of Biggie, how he achieved stardom, and the reason for the famous East Coast - West Coast feud that divided rappers and fans alike before leading to the assassination of both Tupac Shakur as well as B.I.G. Backed by some fantastic rap music.

Saw Fight Club but did not like it all. Could not connect with the thought process of the main characters. Slept off after 75% of the movie and then asked my sister about the ending.

Watched this weekend

Wrong Side of the Town: A timepass movie. Stars Batista and Rob Van Dam of WWE fame. A simple predictable story. Watch if you have nothing else to do. Would say 2.5/5

Its Complicated: Very good family cum comedy movie. A must watch once. Loved the situational comedy. Didn't look like forced in. Would rate it 3.5/5.

+1, didn;t liked it much myself.

Anyways saw 2 movies today in theatre.

Up in the air-
My friend recommended it and TOOI gave it 4 stars so went for it. was disappointed. Its been featured as a comedy but its sensitive and emotional kinda drama. Clooney is very good in his role however movie lacks the punch.

Rating- 3/5 - all for clooney's acting and a few good moments.

Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief - Had lots of time to kill so went for this second show with no hopes and what a surprise!!
Its actually quiet good adventurous thriller. Yes the story is very filmsy and unbelievable but presentation and act is quiet good. total paisa vasool stuff.

Rating - 4/5

3.5/5
+1. It was a nice sensitive movie though i am not a fan of romantic movies.

However, i love the song " Sweet Home Alabama" sung by Lynard Skynard and this song was soundtrack for one of my favorite horror movies " Texas Chainsaw Massacre"
