Yes. It's a great movie. I was watching Evil dead and Evil Dead II recently and those two films are the work of a genius. Raimi is at his best when making horror films.

4.3.2.1

Its again a Brit movie i came across. Some portion shot in NY.

Its about 4 friends who had 2 different days in their own life and how it crosses path with diamond heist.

a good movie. Watchable because of the 4 girls. Each are quite good in their roles and look beautiful too.

3/5

Watched "My sassy girl" on DVD last night. A couple of my friends swore by this movie and I must say ......... it was garbage. Completeley over the top story of a girl hell bent on ruining herself and everyone around her.

Also, the gentleman playing the lead in the movie must have been asked by the director to come to the sets sans his gonads. All he does is follow the crazy starlet around like a starving pup. Ridiculous.

Saw the movie "Take him to the Greek" starring Russell Brand.

Hilarious Brit comedy but gets a tad boring towards the end.

One time watch. Rating - 3/5.

NOTE - Lots of explicit language in the movie.

This movie is based on a true story ( or atleast a supposedly true story where the author maintained an online log about his experience with this girl ). If you read the story, the real girl was even more nasty than the movie version.
Also, they changed the ending to make it a happy one. In the real story, the guy never met the girl after they split.

By the way, did you watch the Korean version or the English version? Coz I know for a fact that English version sucked ( although it had my favourite star Elisha Cuthbert) while I enjoyed the Korean version very much.

Well, I had the mortification of watching Ugly aur Pagli, inspired by "My sassy girl", in a theatre a couple of years back.

U mean this actually happened to some poor guy? I have never known such suckers for punishment. Thanks for the info though. Irrespective, it is very much a sucky movie.

I watched the english version and yes, the actress sure is HOTTTT.

Sir, i guess its "Get him to the Greek"
Its a 2010 release and i already have it. Will watch in few days and update.

Watched Robinhood
Movie survives on one man. Crowe makes it a one time watch otherwise i didn't find anything special.
Rating- 3/5

Robinhood, the new like i said some post ago is a big disappointment. Took lot of historical liberties.

The sequel is inevitable, lets see how it comes out.

Talking about squeal, anybody has any news when the next installment of Sherlock Holmes will come.

Watched 'Fluke' yesterday. Doesn't seem to be a well-made movie initially, but as it progresses, it makes you cry for sure. You will burst out crying during the end.

I loved it nonetheless.

My rating: 4/5.

Watched a few movies :

"Nightmare on Elm Street"

Freddy Krueger at his best. It's a very good movie and set the stage for many stalker/slasher movies. Hail Wes Craven !!! Pray what happened thou skill these days though?

4/5

"The Perfect Storm" Starring George Clooney

Movie is about poor fishermen in greed go to no man's land ( err..water) off the coast of Boston in search of fish and get caught in one of the worst storms ever.

Great picturization/effects and very good storyline.

Loved this movie

4/5


"Escape from Alcatraz" starring Clint Eastwood

Daring escape of Frank Morris ( Clint) from one of the most secure prison in the world. Its a bit slow but, nice to watch.

3.5/5


P.S: Watching " Red Corner" starring Richard Gere

Be Cool (2005)

A very good cast comprising of Travolta, Thurman, The Rock, Vince Vaughn, Christina Milian.

Its an average movie with some foot tapping music, great cars (Maybach, Hummer, Ferrari). The Rock's role stands out, others are regular roles beaten to death numerous times.

Watch it if you have nothing to do
3/5

Saw " Red Corner" starring Richard Gere

Story of an attorney wrongly accused of murder in China and how he fights their rigid judicial system forms the rest of the story.

Gripping and very well made movie. Richard Gere acts fabulously.

Awesome watch

4/5

P.S: Next in line is " Devil wears Prada"
