Watched " Lake Placid 2". It was a decent time-pass. However, acting by almost all the actors was lack-lustre and the huge croc looked it was animated and came straight out of a computer.

1st was slightly better than the sequel.

2/5

P.S: Will get 'Child Play' delivered today. Any feedbacks?

Default The Pink Panther 2

Last night I watched The Pink Panther-2. I did enjoy the movie, It was pretty hilarious (maybe cause I enjoyed even the original series back in days). As expected, Aishwarya Rai Bachan's perfomance was pathetic. Overall I would give the movie a 3/5

Yup. He has there in last scene of The Incredible Hulk as the same Iron Man character -Tony Stark. If one follows comicbook series, it is basically an introduction to the formation of the Avengers, a group of superheroes, of which both Hulk and Iron Man was part of.

I believe The Avengers is to be released next year.

Me too! When I was small, I used to insist my dad to buy comics from news vendors on the way to school!

Liam Neeson sure was very convincing as a distressed father but hardly looked like the ruthless secret agent of the character he played.

It is must watch, and one of those movies that will keep giving us enjoyment on repeated viewing. The degree of sacrifice Christian Bale has made for the movie (he literally thinned himself down to just skin & bone) has to be seen to be believed.

The movie is about a machinist who hasn't slept for a year. He sees things happening, meets people, is tired to the point of distraction, has an unidentified person leaving him a PostIt with a Hangman game on his refrigerator etc. etc. The movie is all about why these things happen. Saying anything about the movie would be a spoiler, so I won't spoil if for you folks
I also thank faithless_1984 for this awesome movie, which I caught up with this evening. Though the content is entirely different, this movie reminded me of the first half of A Beautiful Mind.

Default Leon, The Professional.

Leon,The Professional: 4/5.

Stars one of my fav actor and actress; Jean Reno, for his performance and Natalie Portman, for her beauty. She is just 12 years old or so in this film but ! what a performance.

Should be in your must see list in my opinion.

He is a hitman and she, his neighbor. He becomes her guardian after her parents gets killed.

Lovely movie. And they had the gall to copy this movie in Hindi and named the trash "Bichchu" with Bobby Deol playing Reno and Natalie played by Rani Mukherjee.

I really loved the movie, the depth of Reno's character who never showed any emotion until he meets the girl.

I have been trying to get this movie for a long time, but the DVD hadn't been released in India yet. Is it released now?
