mobike, although I am a huge fan of Godfather movies I think 1 and 2 are by far better than 3. Sofia Coppolla did well to stick to directing from then on :-)

anyways almost forgot this thread, last week-end watched Monster's Ball - yeah the movie for which Halle Berry got an Oscar. Pretty decent performances all around even though the story line is a little bit unrealistic, reminded me of Gran Torino.

3/5

Completely agree. Godfather 1 and 2 were very good compared to Godfather 3. I couldn't get myself to complete that movie till now.

Watched "The Blind Side" and "Up in the Air" over the weekend. Didn't realise "The Blind Side" was a real story till they showed the real people at the end. The movie was better than my expectations ( which were quite low to be honest ). "Up in the Air" is a great movie and I think this was another role completely made for George Clooney ( another role that perfectly fits him was the one in "The Fantastic Mr. Fox" ) .

If you are referring to me, yes I saw it. Forgot to write the review. My bad.

Much better than New moon albeit a bit slow. Has a love triangle which some may not prefer, but twilight saga is suppose to be teen romance so its ok. But acting has improved a bit from previous movies which is quite good.

Fight scenes are quite less, I expected more. A disappointment in that respect. Visual effects are nothing to talk about.

I liked the dialog by Jacob- Face it, I am hotter than you (referring to Edward being a Vampire and he being a wolf)

Overall, i would say, twilight lovers would love it to the core, me being a neutral - was not too happy spending $10 on this one. Watch it if you have seen all other movies and none left.

2.5/5

Say YES to Yes Man.

A lovely movie starring my favorite Jim Carrey.
He is a depressed guy whose life is stuck in a rut. Till he enters a program on saying Yes to life, Yes to everything.

Watched From Paris with love, with John travolta at the helm, the movie was never boring, but the theme was a bit too old was my guess, if i go any further i would be actually be spoiling the movie for you. Go ahead, its worth a one time watch.

I think you are talking about "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"
Awesome movie, but you need to watch it with great concentration or else you wont know what is going on in the movie.

Seems like he didn't watch it with great concentration coz in the movie Jim Carrey cannot read other people's minds but is inside his own memories .
But it's an awesome movie nevertheless. Quite different from his other movies.

Well, technically speaking Pirate Bay doesnt host any movies or any other stuff. So you cannt download any movies from PirateBay. It lets you download torrent files that will allow you to establish P2P conntections and download/share stuff with others. Its the file sharing thing that is illegal.

Micheal Collins: A historical movie about Irish struggle.

Amelia : Directed by Mira Nair. About aviatrix Amelia Earhart.

A Maiden Heist. A heist conducted by a group of Museum Guards who also happens to be art lover .

All three are great movies, you will not regret watching it.

I too watched it last night. The twist was good, but a bit too much of violence and gore.
