Watched "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" over the weekend. Very good and funny movie for kids going to school. They will identify a lot with the characters . I think it can also be enjoyed by the adults.

You probably missed it because an official DVD isn't available anywhere in India. And I haven't seen it being shown on any TV Channel either.
I saw it abroad first. Even in the US, I think it was an indie sleeper.

watched "The Man who Never was" a 50s classic. I am a great fan of war movies and have a whole lot of it.

I must say even in those days they paid so much attention to details in making a movie.

This movie shows the behind the scenes dealings resulting in the Liberation of Afghanistan from the USSR.

An interesting movie to watch.

Rating 4/5

I've watched it couple of week back. I was searching for this and i bumped into Yes Men.

Its a docu-drama. The stunt play on Live BBC news is amazing.

The only things similiar between Ghajini & Memento are
- Short term memory loss
- Tattoes on the body as a memory aid.
- Revenge for wife's death

Otherwise the whole story of Ghajini & Memento are different. Even the revenge for wife's death is rather blurred in Memento.

Haven't seen GI Joe. But 2 nice action comedies - Hot Fuzz & In Bruges.

I have the DVD of Memento. Awesome movie no doubt.

The adaptation by Murugadoss is good as well and is not a direct copy. In this case you can definitely call it "an inspiration" and not a copy.
