Hydra, sounds pretty interesting plot. Need to do a search on Bigflix for it.

I am going to watch it only for Jeanne Tripplehorn, never saw her after Basic Instinct.

@benny, we'll find a way

@mobike, there isn't a lot of her in the movie and she's pretty much an ordinary mom in most of the scenes she's in, except in a couple... will ruin it for you so I won't say

Oh, I forgot she must have grown older. Basic Instinct was way back in 92'

Just finished watching Road to Perdition. This is another gangster movie set in 1931. I think this is the only time Tom Hanks played someone on the wrong side of the law and he has done a very good job of portrayal of a hitman out to protect his son. The other heavyweights in the movie are Paul Newman, Daniel Craig and Jude Law. Worth a watch!

Angels & Demons: I really liked the movie as it was thrilling and had a good suspense too. Tom Hanks rocks. I felt that this was much better than the Da Vinci Code. Both movies are a bit long (2 hours +)

+1 to Angels and Demons.
Very good movie.

Ending is a bit different than the book though.

x2 to that! An excellent movie. Another thing I love about this movie is the score. The music is just out of this world.

Angels and Demons, the book, was no great shakes. No great expectations from the movie either. If they have changed the ending, that is one good thing-the ending of the book sucked!!!!

Watched Crank 2: High Voltage. More of the same antics of Chelios, this time his heart is replaced by an electrical one. He needs to keep recharging it to stay alive. Liked the first one better, this is gorier and you get the deja vu feeling. Jason Statham is his usual unruffled, ruffian self. Amy Smart is smokin' hot. Worth a watch, if your taste run into mindless action flicks like mine does

Didn't like that much although this is a heavily rated movie.

Saw a movie called '1408' last night on Star Movies. Never been a horror movie fan, have always felt like laughing. But this one was good. It isn't exactly a horror movie, but gave me the goosebumps for a while. A must watch if you are a ghost freak.
starring : John Cusack
