I had recorded the "13 Tzamenti" and saw it yesterday. The movie is gripping and keeps you guessing throughout. The end could have been better though.

Any good horror movies worth watching? I am not a big fan of the Saw and Hostel types, more gore and repulsion than horror.
"Drag me to hell" is a supernatural horror / thriller flick by director Sam Raimi who has also directed the Evil dead and Spiderman movies.

I havent watched it but have heard good things about the movie.

You can try Grudge 1 and 2. Pretty decent horror movies. They are not your typical slasher and gore types

Revisited Schindler's List today. The second viewing after a gap of about ten years was equally rewarding.

The Hangover

This one is best enjoyed with your friends. Following on a similar theme as Very Bad Things, this movie deals with the story of a group of friends who go to Las Vegas to celebrate the Bachelors party of one among them. What follows later is total mayhem, and chaos, leaving you in splits of laughter.

Heather Graham adds to the masala quotient. And lest i forget, the fat guy is just awesome with his wisecracks!

Not to be missed.

Bennyboy Rating : ****

Watched " Dawn of the Dead" Starring Ving Rhames and other unknown actors.

I was expecting the movie to be 3rd rate slasher movie but to my surprise, it turned out to be pretty decent with a lot of gripping moments. The zombies were looking a bit artificial but otherwise a decently made movie. I liked it.

3.5/5

P.S: Next in line is "Jackie Brown" directed by Tarantino. Any reviews?

I made a deal with Bigflix, For every movie that i watch and post a review, they pay me Rs.50. So i am in that rush to become a millionaire.

I have official calls on most nights of the week which eventually end at 11pm or so. And, i watch movies usually between 11pm-1AM or 2AM.

And, i watch maybe 3-4 times a week all during week days. Weekends are too precious to be cooped up at home watching movies.

I spend weekends going on drives, check out new eateries, very rarely a movie in a 'plex etc. basically have a chill time with wifey

Frday the 13th - Good horror bloody flick - Jason is back 3.5/5

Street Fighter - ChunLi - Produced by Ashok Amritraj / Adlabs - Very average timepass flick - 2/5
