Very good movie. Like someone mentioned, we are so not used to watching Al Pacino in a sidey role and it was a nice experience to see him in the sidelines. But, he still was in the center of the movie, that's how much power is loaded in his acting.

True Story, Superb acting by Al Pacino, Johnny Depp and even Madsen was quite decent. Though most of his expressions are kind of a repeat ( if people have seen Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill, will know)

4.5/5

Haha......madsen has expressions? First time he has been accused of that I am sure.

RD, Kill Bill, Species...take any movie you want, he has a laid back style with a low, muted dialog delivery. Eyebrows are the only part of his face which seem animated. I like his style, the unflappable characters he plays are suited to that.

Even I like his style, laid-back without a care in the world type and you rightly said, his only expression is raising his eyebrows with a lot of difficulty. That's cool

Do you remember this dialogue? One of my all time favorites

Are you just going to bark all day...Doggy? Or, are you gonna bite?

The Hangover - The movie might be offending to many viewers but is a joy to watch if you do not take things seriously. I had great laughs throughout the movie
I would rate is 4.5 / 5

Watched "Coogan's Bluff" Starring Clint Eastwood. A 60's movie about a sheriff (CE) from good 'ol Arizona extraditing a criminal from NYC. While escorting the criminal back to Arizona, he loses him. How he gets lost in the concrete maze to re-capture him forms the rest of the story.

Clint spent more time wooing the girls in the movie than display his classic grit and fights with guns. But, there is one motorcycle chase in the end which was quite nicely picturized.

It's an ok movie, not so impressive.

2/5

Watched Star Trek yesterday, Its a great movie.

What amazed me most was the casting(or make up) as they managed to get actors who resemble very closely to the original star cast. The special effect are great, the build up of characters is superb.

Overall a Superb Movie. As bonus the original Spock also features in this movie Also hearing "Space the Final Frontier, these are the Voyages of... " at the end of the Movie was very nostalgic

4.5/5
