That's not really a spoiler coz everyone who has heard about the movie knows how it ends. I have heard that many people fainted during that scene.

Saw Crank 2 - High Voltage

The movie is totally crazy with a silly, almost comical, plot. Infact its so silly & crazy that you start liking it for its craziness & the constant Adrenalin pumping that happens through out the movie. The movie is straight out of comics book with some hardcore Scenes which includes action, Gore & adult content.

Normally it wont score above 1.5 to 2 out of 5 but the final ratings are because of Jason Statham & the whacked out camera angles.

Rating 3/5

My brother bought this and we 2 along with my father watched it on the home theatre system with a projector. Can you imagine the discomfort when the race course scene was going on ?

I couldn't believe that Jason Statham could act in such a horrible movie.

Default The Others

Watched - The Others
Its an old move , slightly slow but nevertheless good.

A bit of Paranormal / Ghost types... The ending has a twist in the tale. Similar to the ending of "The Prestige"

I would rate it 4/5. Provided you watch it till the end.

That whole movie is based on that very famous incident. This movie is a documentary of that incident. It is not a spoiler.

Seabiscuit: This movie is set in the time of depression and involves 3 characters whose life revolves around the life and success of a horse. The horse is not considered a race winner but a brat but the way these guys turn it around is what the movie shows.

Great watch so you should check it out.

If you love horses you should watch it.

3.4/5

Well I do not consider that as a spoiler - because almost everyone knows that the film is based on the real life incident of Aron Ralston described in the book - 'between a rock and a hard place'. Do not know about others, but I do some groundwork before going in to see a sensible movie based on real life and try to understand how well the director has recreated the original events.

Similarly everyone knows that George VI overcame his stammering problem and rose to the occasion as king - so going by you my description of that one should be a spoiler too!!
