I got DVD for both versions and as they all say, the older version is much better and Mini race was outstanding.

Ronin is another movie i dont get tired to see. I must have seen it already 15 times or more and love the scenary, odd mix of different cultured people and needless to say Deniro and Jean Reno were marvelous in this movie.

Watched "Club Dread" starring Bill Paxton and directed by an Indian origin guy Jay Chandrasekhar who also stars in the film.

Its about a group of youngsters visiting a private island owned by Bill for some non stop fun and vacation time. Suddenly people start getting murdered.

Its a mix of comedy/thriller type and not perfection in either of them.

But, its a time pass movie if you like to see some good looking women in bikini with some topless scenes and a few scares.

2/5

Paranormal Activity has an article in the Slimes of India today, front page at that. It was made with a handheld camera by a newbie director, with a budget of $15000!!! Already grossed $60mn and going strong. Me too waiting for it....hope it is as good at least as the last handheld-horror-flick The Blair Witch Project

Blair Witch Project was a seriously bad movie, man!!!
The only reason it was successful was the fact that several people thought it's a true thing which it wasn't.

And, come to think of it BWP clocked $248M on a $22,000 budget. Call that lucky if you want.

Paranormal Activity was released after Steven Spielberg got spooked and he helped in marketing the film before its release. Therefore, hoping it ain't as bad as BWP

I agree, even i didnt like the movie. The camera movements were jerky all through the movie which caused me a headache and movie got over without any sight of the antagonist, not fair to a horror movie lover.

Another hand-held camera movie I saw was Cloverfield. I went to see it without reading anything about it and thought it might be a horror/suspense story but turned out to be a stupid disaster/monster movie. My head still hurts thinking about all the jerky camera angles :-)

My problem was it was nothing to be scared about (for us viewers) and on principle I hate disaster or monster movies

Thanks Anurag !

Caught up with this movie. Story of Jack the Ripper with story set in 1888 London. Nice set-up and good acting by all of them.

A very tense and suspense filled thriller. A bit gory also in some scenes not for the faint hearted. Must watch for this genre lovers.

4/5

Anyone seen "The Manchurian Candidate" Starring Denzil Washington?

What are your thoughts?
