Watch it. I am sure you will watch it again or atleast rewind and see what happened before. Better to pay attention from the start. One of the good movies that makes you think.

4/5
Oh yes - one of my favorites!

Glory Road: A awesome college basketball movie which is a tale off a coach who is given the responsibilty to coach a team with very little pay and a small budget and the way he makes it to the final of the countrys premier basketball tourney NCAA championship.

Brilliant story and was a true story too.

3.5/5(MUST WATCH)

+1 Carboy. Saw " Changing Lanes" yesterday. It was superb to say the least and way deeper than the hindi version for sure.

As many of you know the story of Taxi 9211 starring John Abraham and Nana Patekar which was copied from this movie. I must commend the Hindi director, overall theme is same but, the treatment is completely different.

I really liked Ben Affleck's acting which was better in this movie than Samuel. L. Jackson ( who i consider to be an awesome actor).

Anger showed in the most politest way. That's an art.

Folks who can recall the last scene in Taxi 9211? It was way better and considerably more emotional than Changing Lanes which kind of ended abruptly.

Btw, this movie also has one of the hotties that i like "Amanda Peet"

Do check it out. Really good movie

4/5

P.S: Next in Line " Shutter Island" starring Leonardo De Caprio. Reviews please

Shutter Island is one of the best films that I have seen this year! Watch it at leisure since there are a few interesting 'twists' in the plot.

Though I haven't posted its review, I agree with Wolfheart. The movie's got a good plot and the climax is surprising for sure. Good performances as well.

Great movie Avinash.

It begins a bit slowly and then things get heated up.

The film is based on Dennis Lehane's 2003 novel of the same name.This film is my personal favorite too as this is related to my work.

Its very much true that during and after WW1 and 2, numerous scientific experiments (drug trials) were carried out on POW till the international committee formed guidelines on clinical research,which are now known as the ICH-GCP guidelines.

Not entirely anyway. But discussing this would do more harm than good. It would be great if you'd be a little considerate.

Tekken

This was one eagerly awaited movie. I had a feeling it will be ok movie. And indeed it is.

The fight scenes are pretty good, similar to the game. There is nothing gory so it is ok. The film is fast paced but its a simple vengeance story so its predictable.

One time watch.

3/5

Grown ups
For a change its not just about adam sandler.
Story of few childhood pals getting together at their coach's funeral and discovering life again. A very nice decent comedy with some very good punches. I wasn't bored anytime.
Recommended if you like comedies and a good laugh.

Rating- 4/5
