Watched back to back
1. Miracle at St. Anna. a so-so WWII movie. i am a fan of this genre but, this one fails to amuse me as its too far from what really happened in Tuscany. Its a Spike Lee joint, as he likes to be refereed in this way. Like his other movie, this one is also a black cast movie, with lot of over acting. Actors are great though.
Watch if you have around 3 hours to spare.

2. Big Nothing.
Forget critic, forget box office record or review by biased journos. This one is a must watch. If you liked Fargo or Lady killers, this is the right choice for you. Made similar to what Cohen Brother does, only that this one is made by Baptiste.

saw it today after reading some good reviews here.
Must admit i am bit disappointing so i would give it 2.5/5 for few good shots of moon and earth from far distance.
Storyline and plot are average with no real twist,acting is also nothing to talk about.There is voice of kevin spacey as robot thats all.

This isn't about moon but shown to be shot on moon,cant actualy tell you the plot.So all in all not a bad one for one-time watch.

dont miss it
i found first part much much better than New Moon. I had great expectations from New Moon, fell short by a mile

Now i wondered why i saw it in a theater. could have done just fine on dvd at home.

Talking will the real ninja please stand up??

Hi All,

any one eager to watch "ninja assassin" which releases tomorrow?? The reviews that i have read so far give it a *** and worth a onetime watch.

I hope its not like the regular Jet Li movies where you have people flying all over the place.

Planning to watch it tomorrow hoping to get some quick advices to watch or not to watch..

"Will the real Ninja, please stand up?"

Ruffryder, Your expecting an feedback from Eminem (Real Slim Shady) fans?.

You may get caught up in a ricochet of rap based feedback. Better is to muster up some guts and meet the Ninja at your own risk

Ninja Assassin is mind blowing.
Not surprising since the director is the one who directed V 4 Vendetta and the 1st assistant director for the matrix trilogy.
Action is very well choreographed and a good plot. A hell a lot of gore, so weak hearted, this one's not for you.
For a pop star, Rain has done well as the hero of the movie.

Just one of the many good scenes:
Trained 6 hours everyday for 6 months:

Watched " Anger Management" starring Jack Nicholson and Adam Sandler

Story about a mild guy ( Adam) getting caught up in anger management therapy due to a small misunderstanding and how the anger therapy doctor ( Jack) takes over this life.

Jack Nicholson is just superb in this movie and i also like John Turutorru
I never liked Adam Sandler, all his roles seem similar to me where he is that meek, subduded kind of guy. But, i reckon he does well in those type of roles.

Very well made movie, i recommen watching it

3.75/5

Watched Inglourious Basterds

Name:  ib1.JPG

The film revolves around a group of guys from different countries with an objective to terrorize the Nazis & eventually Kill Hitler.

Brilliant acting by the entire Cast. A typical Quentin Tarantino with its chapters & a storyline which keeps you on the edge.

I did find some technical flaws in the movie but apart from that a good watch.

Some scenes might not be suitable for people with faint heart.

Most of the movie is in French & German with subtitles.

The character I loved most was that of Col. Hans Landa played impressively by Christoph Waltz.

Although I didnt find this movie as good as Kill Bill but still its a good movie nonetheless.


4/5

as recommended by siralec ,watched "big nothing".
though it is not a laughter riot,still a good movie.
would rate it 3.5/5.
i watched two movies -VALKYRIE followed by THE DOWN FALL.
both were excellent movies and watching them in that order gave me a satisfaction.
both movies are highly recommended in that order.
the man who acted as hitler in the downfall was brilliant.has he acted
in any other movie.
