@mobike008: If you are fond of Daniele Craig you surely would have watched Casino Royale. He looks so good and full of life.

Beg to differ. I think its one of its finest performances. A very very good movie indeed.

Daniele Craig movies now remind me of Bourne Identity series. So much similarity of locations, style of direction and photography. Quite Watchable.

I am slowly but steadily becoming a fan of DC

4/5
I like DC. I think he was quiet good in the Casino Royale. But my fav bond remains Pierce Brosnan. The kind of grace and charisma he use to bring to his appearance along with the one liners were great.

Coming back to movie i feel " Quantum of Solace" is the worst bond movie i had ever seen. And i have seen all till date.
It was nowhere near the good ones in the past. DC tried hard but the screenplay,the plot,the action- everything was below par. And 4 people who went with me shares the same opinion. I was hugely disappointed as i am a lover of bond flicks.
Heard DC is doing another bond flick now.

The best element in Training Day has to be Eva Mendes . Denzel comes second.

Just saw - X-MEN ORIGINS - WOLVERINE

I would say ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !! 4/5

Hugh Jackman is brilliant. The movie starts a 150 yrs ago when wolverine is a kid and finds out he has mutant powers and then FF to 21st century where he is pursuing a normal life and then suddenly Victor ( Now Sabertooth ) who is his brother starts haunting him for a project X.

Fantastic Action scenes and fight scenes.

Saw " Planes, Trains, Automobiles" Starring Steve Martin and John Candy. What a hilarious movie.

Story of a man trying to go home for thanksgiving holidays and gets stuck with a walking talking debacle in the form of John Candy. How every mode of transport puts them in a funny spot and fails to take them home is the gist of the story.

John Candy in some scenes out does Steve Martin. It's funny all the way with a lovely sentimental twist at the end. I love Steve Martin

4/5

Can you guess how he's seen it since its releasing on May 1 worldwide? Your guess is as good as mine. But its not a finished copy, so at many places the raw unfinished 3D FX can be seen. And btw, me saw it too!

I watched these during last couple of weeks:

1. In Bruges, starring Colin Farrel, Brendan Gleeson and Ralph Fiennes. It is a drama involving two hitmen. Excellent movie.

2. The Prestige, starring Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Rebecca Hall and Scarlet Johansson and directed by Chris Nolan. The movie, set in the late 19th century, is about two magicians trying to outdo/destroy each other. Good story, great performances by the lead actors and very well directed.

3. Boys Don't Cry, starring Hilary Swank. An oscar winning performance by Swank in the role of a boy trapped in a girl's body.

4. The Kid, Charlie Chaplin.

I have these lined up for the next few days: Munich, Schindlers' List, Run Lola Run and Earth (made into a feature film from BBC Planet Earth series).
