Why dont you check with the call center?
Found the CD, and saved some money

Just my views.
It is a graphics guys movie, but it looks so real that you are on the edge of your seat in most of the scenes. This one is worth a watch, defintely in the best multiplex you can afford. The only rating i can think of is that its a "must watch".

Movie: 2012
What I liked: amazing special effects, new theories, few but nice comic punch lines in between (specially the "ENGINE START" on the BENTLEY)
What I did not like: Too much co-incidence for our hero, kind of reminded me of some hindi movies.. long dragging at the end.
Final word: Watch the movie in a theatre only to enjoy it.
Cheers!

Watched " 2012" last night

My review is exactly same as yours. Nice special effects. I especially liked the initial ones when cracks on surface appear and how Cusack runs for his life in the Limo and the final one where the Ark is floating towards the Everest. Rest of the special effects looked repetitive to me.

Characterisation was heavily inspired from Manmohan Desai's films. Lot of heavy duty sentiments which seemed totally out of place.

Did anyone notice the Russian pilot's speech was exactly the way Dharmendra speaks...LOL

Cusack's daughter was sweet looking and had good experessions and i was not impressed with anybody's acting. It was pretty much ordinary.

It's a decent one time watch for those special effects but loud crash,bangs and booms did induce a slight headache. Oh yeah, before i forget, it's way too long to even think of seeing it for a 2nd time.

P.S: Watched it in Big Cinema's in Ameerpet, Hyderabad for the first time. Didnt like the experience, seating wasn't comfortable, too crowded, less number of elevators and horrible parking facility.

3.5/5

I did watch 1st day as I was a hardcore MJ fan. Must watch for fans, good watch for others too. If you are simply a lover of music, dance, etc you will be left speechless by MJs singing and dancing skills. At 50, he still gives a run to the 20yr olds. There are lot of takeaways like how he constantly pushes the boundaries, his attention to details, respect for his team members, etc. You will come out feeling the terrible loss the world has had.

Quoting a line from a review I read - EURweb.com - STEVEN IVORY: Truly, Michael Jackson was It - " After witnessing Jackson's dizzying onscreen craftsmanship and indefatigable dedication to his thing, if you aren't left with the irrepressible desire to step up your own game, then you missed MJ's most dynamic move ever "

Really liked it. I cant rem the guy's name who played the gal's father but he has done a damn good job. Would highly recommend it. I think the best thing about this movie is its pace which doesnt drops even for a sec.
Rating -4.5/5

I watched the movie 2012 yesterday.

I liked the special effect but generally I dont like all those sci fiction and futuristic movies.

I felt like 2012 is made by some Bollywood director in Hollywood, so much of hindi type.

watched Donnie Brasco. Its based on a true story, about an under cover FBI agent Joseph Pistone. He was so involved in Mafia affair and rose through the ranks of Family that FBI had to pulled him out.
He is highly respected in FBI circles for his dedication.

Starring: Johny Depp and Pacino

Absolutely. I can add saying " It's a must watch" the tension of being found out is so high, its actually quite an adreline rush.

Btw, you must bear Al Pacino to be treated as a side-kick ( can you imagine that?) whereas the big boss is Michael Madsen ( Another favorite actor)

Do check it out

UP:-


This movie is about a 78 year old balloon salesman who manages to fulfill his dream to go on a adventure to South America by tying thousands of balloons to his house . The fun part begins when a young boy joins him in this adventure trip. I kinda enjoyed this movie!!

Rating : 4/5
