Gone Baby Gone - seen last week-end...a mystery/thriller/drama about a missing child and a couple of private investigators trying to unravel the truth behind the "kidnapping".
Some very good actors (Morgan Freeman & Ed Harris) along with a couple of newcomers (Casey Affleck - brother of Ben Affleck who is the director here!) . Did not like too much of the younger Affleck and the biggies are a bit wasted.
An OK film with a twist in the end (although predictable) and which shows the sordid and corrupt side of Boston. Also posing the question of
Not a bad movie, but nothing really great either.

Btw, do you pay Rs.100 for each DVD that you watch? Isn't that day light robbery? I thought regular DVD rental fellows charge Rs.20-Rs.30 per movie?
How is the movie " Redline" ??? I got it delivered this morning...LOL

Watched 'Gran Torino' Yesterday night.
Summary from IMDB -

Kowalski is a grumpy, tough-minded, unhappy an old man, who can't get along with either his kids or his neighbors, a Korean War veteran whose prize possession is a 1972 Gran Torino he keeps in mint condition. When his neighbor Thao, a young Hmong teenager under pressure from his gang member cousin, tries to steal his Gran Torino, Kowalski sets out to reform the youth. Drawn against his will into the life of Thao's family, Kowalski is soon taking steps to protect them from the gangs that infest their neighborhood. Written by alfiehitchie
In Michigan, the grumpy widower Walt Kowalski is a Korean War veteran full of prejudice that has just lost his beloved wife Dorothy. He is one of the last Caucasian Americans in his neighborhood and does not have good relationship with his sons and their families; therefore he is a lonely man. When his teenager neighbor Thao Vang Lor is pressed by his cousin Smokie to join his Hmong gang, he is assigned to steal the Gran Torino of Walt as part of his initiation in the gang. However he is surprised by the old man and his traditional family feels ashamed with the incident. Later Walt saves Thao first and his sister Sue Lor from gangs and he has the gratitude of his next door neighbors and the neighborhood. On the day of his birthday, Walt is invited by Sue to join her family reunion and he begins a relationship with his neighbors, helping Thao to get a job. However he realizes that the Hmong gang disturbs the neighborhood and after a coward attack of the gangster, Walt decides to take an ultimate attitude.
Highly impressive acting by Clint and the rest of the cast.
A bit sadistic movie.
Rating - 4/5

Only thing i liked is the super hot heroine ( Nadja Brolin), its worth taking that torture only to gape at her. And, ofcourse, also loved the baby lambo, ferrari, maserati and the ford gt

I decided to take a break from the regular action-thriller genre and saw a very different genre of movies, the kind I don't normally watch
These are the movies I saw today and surprisingly enjoyed each one of them
Chocolat (Chocolat (2000)) - 3.75/5
Dakota Skye (Dakota Skye (2008)) - 3/5
Before Sunrise (Before Sunrise (1995)) 4/5
Before Sunset (Before Sunset (2004)) 3.75/5

The Fall (The Fall (2006)) a great story of a stuntman and a little girl in hospital and their vivid imagination 4/5
The Savages (The Savages (2007)) which revolves around how 2 siblings have to take care of their abusive father when he falls sick and how that experience brings their own inner demons out 3/5

Sleepless in Seattle
Sleepless in Seattle
Starring Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan, it is quite catchy and mushy romantic flick. Sam Baldwin (Tom Hanks) is a widower with a son who is desperate to have a new Mom. He calls in a radio show to express his interest for a new Mom and the whole of America listens including Annie (Meg Ryan). Annie is deeply touched inspite of already having a fiancee in Walter (Bill Pullman). As the days go by, Annie gets more and more attracted towards Sam inspite of not having met. The rest of the movie is all about Sam dating women for a new wife and Annie trying hard to resist her temptation to meet Sam.
The movie is very predictable but is a good weekend watch.
