Caught up with 2 movies on Blue Ray DVD

The Devil's Rejects

Its the story of a sheriff hunting down a gang of 3-degraded human beings who enjoy torturing people and go on a killing spree at the drop of a hat.

It is the most insane movie seen in a long time. People who enjoy horror/slasher movies will absolutely love this movie for the cold,ruthless demeanour of the main characters of the movie and is a perfect way to mess up your mind. People who hate this genre will be disgusted to the core and will practically switch off or wipe the screen clean of the atrocities that is shown.

Awesome soundtrack by Rob Zombie and well directed and the 3 main characters were ruthless and coldest at best. The sheriff played by William Forsythe was equally good and he stood out in the movie

Warning: There is too much nudity in the movie and being blue ray, it was completely un-censored and the crazy woman from that gang was just too good looking

Must watch for fans of this genre

4.5/5

Swordfish

Its one of the most stylish movies seen in a long time. Its the story of the villian ( John Travolta) hiring a hacker ( Hugh Jackman) using the charms of Halle Berry. What ensues is heart pounding action and drama and the visuals and sound quality in blue ray is simply undescribable.

Hydrashok, if the eye-candy you were referring to was related to a particular scene of Halle Berry relaxing at the pool. Then, yes that scene was indeed eye-candy since it was completely un-censored ( if you know what i mean..wink wink) and i was pleasantly shocked to see that.

Awesome movie

4/5

Told you. Rob Zombie is a God!
Blu-rays have more nudity than regular discs? Gives a whole new meaning to the term Blue movies, lol.

I like Swordfish too. Pity it didn't do that well at the Box Office.

Dammit. My DVD merely shows her topless for a few seconds.

There's more to this Blu-ray than meets the eye, lol.

Sir, as interesting as he is, Hydrashok is a member of Team-BHP, not a movie.

Just finished watching, "The international" starring - Clive Oven

It's good. 4/5

It's about a bank involved in trading in weapons for supplying to the third world.

It's full 2 hours long, and not full of action so you might need to hold on to it once in a while.

Saw The Ghost And the Darkness Yesterday. Its a brilliant movie based on a true story that happened in South Africa during the late 19th Century. It stars Val Kilmer & Michael Douglas who are simply superb in their acts.

Its about the menace created by two Man eaters. The movie has brilliant direction & some scenes really get you to the edge of your seat. Some of the scenes are a bit Gory through.

Thanks to Vikram because of whom I came to know about this movie

My Rating - 4.5/5

OUTSOURCED

Name:  outsourced.jpg
Views: 396

Movie deals with the outsourcing of jobs from the US to locations worldwide where labour is cheaper, and not necessarily India.

The main protagonist is asked to relocate and train newbies working for the firm's callcenter which is now outsourced to a location in India. He is reluctant but has to agree to save his job. His primary task is to lower the MPI (Minutes Per Incident) to a difficult 6, for him to return back to the US, failing which he may just have to settle down in India itself.

Rest of the story deals with how he tries to adjust to India and his interactions with members from his team.

The usual dirty locations and towns are depicted in the movie, which is strange considering the movie deals which a call center, which should have been in one of the metros, and not in a small town.

Some genuine fun moments are shown, which makes for bearable watching.

Hope the confusion got sorted out

I got them from the US. I am sure some big malls would certainly sell them out here. I think the price for each movie disc is Rs.1299

Techno, is there some reason you omitted to mention our very own Om Puri and his brilliant performance?
