Watch it if you have nothing to do
3/5
I had watched this pile of rubbish back then. Was able to sit through it only because I had a big group for company. Had seen 'Meet the Fockers' few days before seeing this one. What a drop in standards!

I watched a movie called "Serbian Film" "Srpski film" (Name of the movie) - Its about a porn stars life & the hurdles he faces, but what made me watch is the movie is said to have true events incorporated..after watching this piece of ****, i wonder how such people live among us!

Its a movie which has explicit scenes & family emotions, I puked at the end of the movie, couldnt sleep properly for the next 2/3 days...even if i think about it..& its NOT a porn movie as such..

No ratings though, & i strongly reccomend NOT to watch this movie!

Just watched a classic for the first time. Stanley Kubrick's 'Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb'. I know that in today's post cold-war context the theme may be a bit old, but it is a great satirical insight into the tensions that prevailed during the cold war, and the impending threat of a nuclear strike.

Yes, it is bearable only if there is company to trash the movie. But i did like some parts of it like the Hummer gang turning up at the business tycoon's home or the rock getting dressed at the Boot House.

I am gonna watch a similar movie featuring John Travolta called 'Get Shorty'. Its similar in concept and a 15 year old movie.

"Gentlemen, you can't fight in here. This is the War Room."

Two thumbs up for the movie.

"From Paris With Love" is a waste of time. Nothing new, though John Travolta was good. Would give it only 2 stars, maybe because I saw it as soon as I completed all seasons of "24"

What I liked about this movie is it's subtlety. Had Bollywood, true to it's name, made a copy of it, we would have had an unnecessary, hoo-haa tear jerker or something.

Has anyone watched the recently released "Let me in" ? It is a remake of the swedish movie "Let the right one in", which I loved. The new movie has got some good reviews and i heard that the director changed a few things which worked. I highly recommend the original swedish movie though. It's modern horror classic, although it is neither scary, nor gory, but it has got great atmosphere and great performances.

I haven't seen "Let me in" but I watched "Let the right one in" which is a pretty decent movie. I have a feeling that the Hollywood remake would be better. For those who haven't seen either, the story is about a liitle boy who befriends the new girl in the neighborhood. The girl as it turns out is a vampire.

Last weekend was a horror movie fest. Evil dead, followed by Saw, Saw 2 and The grudge.

A special mention of "The Grudge". I saw this movie for the umpteenth time, it still gave me the chills. Awesome.

Tinker Bell and the Treasure - an animated movie.

Loved it. The movie preaches how to value friendship. Its a simple 2D movie and is about fairies.

A good watch.

4.5/5

The Social Network:

Story of Mark Zukerburg (founder of facebook) on how he started the FB fever; and became the youngest billionaire of all times.
It tells you the about the various charges he was facing and how he handled it and settled the disputes between the sueing parties.
However I wasnt impressed with the character of zuckerburg, since it lead me to a feeling that he was a shrewd man, which seems to be not true.

Rating:4/5 (for Aaron Sorkin and lead actor who depicted how nerds are)

How could I forget Madagascar - 2?

Those who have seen both 1 and 2, will agree that 2 does not hold a candle to the former. However, the movie does have some great moments that get you ROFL. Case in point, the penguins. They are psychotic, especially their "skipper".

This is what he says to a "hula doll" just when they are about to ..... errrr...... take off :

"That has got to be the second biggest slingshot I have ever seen".

For the uninitiated - that slingshot was supposed to launch an AIRPLANE.

Another sidey but enjoyable character was "Moto Moto" - the male alpha hippo. As he puts it - A name so fine, you gotta say it twice.

I love the song that plays on his entry. It goes something like this :

I like em' biiiiig
I like em' chunkyyyyyyy
I like em' round
N somethin somethin.....

Anyone know what song this is? Want to download.

Cheers.

Watched Resident Evil 3D in NJ on Sunday with long lost college friends. I have not seen the first part/previous part(s) but my friends had and said the new one is not even 30% of the first one even with the 3D effect. For me it seemed more of a stylish action movie with a lot of importance given to looks and feel rather than substance. Now-a-days these english pictures are becoming like the hindi ones where the hero dodges 100 bullets and gets his shots fired on target each time. Oh yes and there is another part coming.

My rating: 2/5
