Watched " What Lies Beneath" starring Harrison Ford and Michelle Pfieffer.

Saw this movie in theatre long back and it was refreshing to catch up with it again on the DVD. This movie was very well made and probably set the trend for some nice twist in thriller stories.

Great acting by MP and just about ok by HF.

Great watch. 4/5

P.S: Next in line is " Road to Perdition" starring Tom Hanks. Reviews please

Its the story of a Argentina football (??) team travelling for a match and their plane crashes on top of a snow capped mountain. How they survive ( including eating the dead team members to stay ALIVE) is the gist of the story. Its really a sad movie.

I own a DVD of this movie.
Thank you so much!

How to Train Your Dragon (2010)

A well scripted and well executed feel good movie. Good portrayal of man-animal bonding as well. An excellent Saturday afternoon entertainer I must say.

My rating : 4/5.

Its a must watch if you liked Godfather series.
Superb acting and direction. A nice classic imo.

Kevin Costner- must be his early days and can be seen the potential.
Sean Connery- Amazing screen presence and treat to watch.
Andy Garcia-Not much of a role but imprssive nonetheless.

Rating- 4.5/5

Loved Robert Di Nero as Al Capone. I hear that Brian De Palma has been trying to make a prequel to the movie called "The Untouchables : Capone Rising" for a long time now, but shooting hasn't started for the movie yet.

Also, the characters Capone and Elliot Ness are real people, although the rest of the characters and story is mostly fictional. Ness didn't actually capture Capone in real life as shown in the movie.
+1 to all your views! I saw it today and found it as gripping as The Godfather.

I too liked the Railway Station and the border scenes, not to mention Sean Connery's killing.

Surveillance

** Disclaimer: This is not for faint-hearted people. **

Now this is one hella disturbing movie. Its different, its slow, its thrilling and has that edge-of-the-seat script to keep you hooked throughout the movie. Initially, i was wondering, whatta mess, but as the movie went on, i was so engrossed, i didn't knew when the time went by.

The cast is super. Well acted, each character manage to give goose bumps as and when needed. The little girl is great. During the climax, i was literally worried about her safety wondering if she is safe or not. Credit goes to the director for coming up with something unique. The climax is eerie. Hoping for a 2nd part.

Obviously, such movies are not meant for general public, so most of the time it will go unnoticed. Please don't review or story line. It will have more effect on you.

A must watch for Thriller Lovers

4.5/5

I liked this movie too. The movie had great atmosphere and didn't resort to cheap scares. I watched the indianised version of this movie called "Raaz" and it was so loud and when Bipasha Basu resorted to those "Pativratha" dialogues towards the end, I was like .

'Road to Perdition' is a great movie too, although Tom Hanks doesn't look like the ruthless gangster that he portrays. Daniel Craig and Jude Law have good roles and the movie is directed by Sam Mendes ( Ex husband of Kate Winslet) , who is said to be directing the next Bond movie ( if and when that happens due to MGM's problems )

My favourite animated movie of the year , alongwith Toy Story 3. One of the best movies from Dreamworks so far.

I watched this last week too. Loved the movie. What I loved the most was the lake house man. That's my dream home!

Nice movie! Directed by Jennifer Lynch (David Lynch's daughter). Though it's a good suspense thriller, it's hardly disturbing.

Have you seen Martyrs? That one is seriously disturbing!
