The story line is predictable, but it still is brilliant. One of DiCaprio's best performance.

Can be given a miss

2/5
There a couple of scenes which are copied from Island in Transformers 3: Dark of the moon.

Not only that, Pearl Harbor's aircraft carrier is used in Transformers movie.

Needless to say, director for all these movie is Micheal Bay.

Watched this movie and found it to be quite engrossing. Like most movies on the middle east subject. It is very intense and keeps you drawn till the end of the movie.

Leo's role seem extended from some of his previous movies and was just about ok. whereas, Russel Crowe excelled as a slimy CIA operative with zero ethics and morals, he makes you hate him.

More than these 2 stars, I liked the acting of Hani Salaam ( Mark Strong) who is the head of Jordanian Intelligence. Brilliant acting

That Iranian lady was ohhhh so pretty

Overall, a great watch

3.5/5

P.S : Next in line is "Next" starring Nicholos Cage.

Saw little portions of it. Kurt Russell as Wyatt was very good and loved his handle bar mustache

Also, the way he kicks out a supposedly tough guy from a bar by twisting his ears was funny.

And, yeah those rutheless cowboys were a tough bunch and real mean

It's an amazing movie! Robert De Niro's acting is fantastic! Do watch it. It's on IMDb's top 250 list at #42.

Movie: Bad Teacher

Review: Reading the title one might think what kind of a B-Grade movie is this. I told my friends that I wanted to go for this movie and their reply was - "You want to go to the theatre for such movies". I do not blame them. It was after I told them that the movie has Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake, they agreed to come for the movie. I do not think many people know about this movie. I went for this because there was no other movie to watch (I was not interested in watching SPY Kids 4).

Cameron Diaz is one of my favourite hollywood actress. The last movie I saw of her was Knight and Day (with Tom Cruise). One thing you will say after watching bad teacher is - Diaz has become old. She infact looks old in the movie. When I saw its trailer I liked its story. But the movie was not as good as it could have been. Watch this if you only want to have some light-hearted fun. Some scenes in this movie are quite funny. Justin Timberlake was pretty average (Actually I had high expectations after seeing him in Social Network). This movie is virtually out of the theatres now. It was being shown at only one theatre - Globus at Bandra. I would rate it 3/5.

A movie slightly similar to FD series but, in this one NC can see into future only for about 2 minutes and is unwilling called for help on matter of national security.

Fast paced decent action thriller.

NC was as usual good and Jessica Beil is a nice eye candy

3/5

P.S: Next in line " The Bounty Hunter" starring Gerald Butler and Jennifer Aniston.

A timepass movie for a chilled out evening. Nothing great, neither hate-worthy. JA admirers would like the movie. Looks kinda cute throughout.

If you liked Body of Lies, might I suggest, you watch "Syriana". Thats if you havent seen it already. Again, the same subject - Middle East. But excellent acting and starcast.

I have seen Syriana which is a wonderful movie and a complex one too dwelving in the oil related issues in M.E. Clooney acted really well.
