"The Tourist" is not worth watching. Too slow. Angie looks too old. Rating 2/5 from my side.

I did not hear good reviews about 'Tron' so far from 'my colleagues'. It can be skipped, they say, so is 'The Tourist'

My top 10 goes like,
1. Flash of Genius - A true story about intermittent wiper inventor and how the Ford guys dodged that guy.
2. Kill Bill - I'm a Tarantino fan.
3. Pulp Fiction - Same as above.
4. Schindler's List - A classic war movie from Spielberg.
5. Blue Streak - Martin Lawrence at his best.
6. Changeling - A true story again. Must see for Jolie's fans.
7. The Hangover - Hilarious.
8. The Departed - A classic epic from Martin Scorsese.
9. The Pirates of Silicon Valley - I am waiting for a movie on Jobs. This is the closest one.
10. Reservoir Dogs - Tarantino again.

watched the following over the weekends.

1. Unstoppable. A so-so movie, unusually stretched. Denzel is good as always.

2. Incident at Oglala, A documentary about Leonard Peltier.

Devil-
Devil (2010) - IMDb

Interesting thriller. However the end was abrupt and kinda not to my liking. Still good one time watch.
Rating-3/5

Anyone watched "Dirty Dancing"? A great movie from the 80s. Great music from the 80s. I felt that Dil To Pagal Hai was kinda based on this theme.

IMDB rating is 6/10. I would like to give it like 8/10.

Dirty Dancing is a classic. You can't go wrong watching that with some chocolate by your side, really!

Of course! Dirty Dancing is a classic. I was surprised that its not discussed on this thread in the last 214 pages.

And seriously Black Eyed Peas murdered that song.

Really very nice movie!

+1. I saw this movie about a month back and was really awed by the closeness to reality of this movie and yet interesting to watch.
