The growl was really wicked indeed. What a movie!! Hats off to the hunter of the two lions. I still can't digest the fact that this movie is based on a real incident.

The Ghost and the darkness - 5/5

Also watched 'Leon - The Professional' . Another excellent movie. 4/5

French Kiss

Meg Ryan stars in this cheerful little movie about chasing back your love, after he has dumped you for someone else. To chase him back, she has to overcome her fear of flying since Paris is where the action is taking place.

A nice way to spend one of those weekends and as for the lead characters, they're truly convincing.

Bennyboy Rating : ***1/2

Saw Harry Potter : Half Blood Prince, Story line is good (though who had already read the books, its no surprise for them). With more special effects and magic tricks, its surely watchable. Its love in the air for all Harry's friends and more furious attacks of dark forces, it leaves you with a dumbstruck ending. Rest I don't want to be blamed for spilling the beans

Untraceable ! tried 4-5 times to complete the film. Wasnt of my taste. Gross for me torturing humans. Its about a psycho killer who runs a forum which shows how he kills pets/people. The more hits his site gets the more faster one dies. 2.5/5

Pink Panther 2 : 3/5

Was happy to see an Indian playing a lead role. Think I started laughing within 2 min after the movie started. The guy, Steve Martin rules. Fun to watch with family. The Pope part was super cool. Lol.

Death Proof: Was on some movie channel. Saw the last half an hour. Was grippy and hence saw it. Hope they play it again. The director also did the forthcoming film Inglourious Basterds

saw 21 grams 21 Grams (2003)
its a very well made movie and I quite liked the story - however the non-linear presentation makes things a bit confusing in the start, you do catch up after the first 20 mins or so
my rating 4/5

It certainly is a lovely movie, no doubt about that!

There was a remake of this movie in Malayalam as well. It didnt live up to the standard of the original for sure!

There's this little jig that Meg Ryan does by the sea side after wrecking her ex boyfriend's romance, it is extremely disjointed and completely out of rhythm, but I fell in love with her for it.

Pay careful attention to a particular passage in the movie.
The hero & heroine get off the train. They are then sitting in the garden,
sipping wine with the hero's family. Kevin Kline wants to search
Meg Ryan's purse. So he opens the garden gate & steps out of the
gate to look at Meg's purse. At this time (around the time he is opening the
garden gate), there is a background music which plays for a very short time
- maybe for quarter of a minute. Now hear the starting music of Masakali (Delhi-6).

French Kiss a super movie. Meg Ryan has acted in a lot of nice romantic movies -
When Harry Met Sally being my favourite.

Oh boy! That jig can never be forgotten!
Meg Ryan is among my fav actresses, and her expressions are just priceless.

Between, what do you gutys think of the guy who played Luc in the movie? He was quite good as well.

Watch it on DVD. All the fun scenes were edited out. Surprisingly, the lap dance in the beginning was all there!!

Kevin Kline. Awesome actor. He also plays Chief Inspector Dreyfuss in the Pink Panther movies. Check his work in Consenting Adults, A fish called Wanda, and Wild Wild West (hilarious as Artie).

Agree. He is one of those actors who brings that larger than life stuff to the characters very much like Tom Hanks.
