    Warrior. Not bad, but a little bit boring and predictable.

    Finally forced myself to sit down and watch Lawrence of Arabia. Now I see why it's a classic. Once I started, I was hooked. Wish I could have seen this in the theater because the location shooting was incredible, even on TV.

    The movie was preceded by a nice commentary by Spielberg on some of the filming aspects.

    Shaolin - huge all-star cast, including Jet Li and Jackie Chan. A bit of drama, a bit of Kung Fu. Not bad.

    Crimes and Misdemeanors

    Woody was ahead of his time on this one -- crime DOES pay, and God has left town. A little comedy, a little drama, all knowing.

    A Dangerous Method

    If you're not well versed in Freud and Jung, you're not likely to enjoy this one. Gets a little technical in psychoanalytic jargon. Very strong cast, fine performances.

    Watched MI4.

    Very mediocre.

    Also watched Don 2, which was much better.

    Good friend on mine told me she's never seen Lord of the Rings before. Those being my favourite movies, it was a rookie mistake on her behalf. Sat down and watched all 3 with her on friday (4pm-12:30am). Will never get sick of them.

    Is that the new Woody Allen movie. A relative of mine who is always very critical and negative was recommending it to me.
    I am sure suresh can string together some pro-level gaalis in hindi, at the very least, like when he's driving in Chennai traffic.

    Saw the current Mission Impossible today, plenty of thrills, a few good laughs, about as entertaining an action thriller as you can find.

    Loved IM4........

    Moscow sucks, goto St Petersburg instead - one part of my family from St Petersburg and nearby and I have always enjoyed it there when I visit. All my relatives in Moscow all want to get to the US as fast as possible and other than a few tourist sites Russia a mess and very dreary behind the scenes. Moscow really is blah...another great place is Prague or Budapest (love Prague) like Russia with out all the scummyness.

    LOL watch out, friend. Some posters from Moscow are here at this forum.

    Anyway, I just watched the move - MIDNIGHT IN PARIS. maybe you can tell me another version of the movie story from St petersburg.

    I don't love all the scummyness from all nations. I know I will love Prague.

    The Yellow Sea (Korean) - good movie overall with a twist at the end but it's about 30 minutes too long (the movie is about 2h15min). The chase scenes and violence are a bit overkill that it loses its effectiveness by the 3rd act.

    La Piel Que Habito (Spanish) - dark, disturbing, twisted :mrgreen:

    If you're bored with typical Hollywood movies, watch these.

    The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - dark movie, definitely worth its 18 rating.

    Very, very good. 8/10. Looking forward to the sequels.

    the original or remake?
    The original Swedish trilogy has been available on bluray for quite sometime now. No need to wait for the remakes.

    Never Let Me Go
    This one is a real downer, moving at snail pace with no real payoff at the end. It's basically a love-triangle (nothing new here) set in a sci-fi premise, which requires way too much on the viewer's part to suspense a certain belief/disbelief. The movie didn't work for me. I wasn't sold on the whole idea of seemingly normal, intelligent adults with fully functioning brains carrying on like machines voluntarily with no attempt of taking their futures into their own hands knowing full well what's in stored for them.

    The movie tries to be grand and meaningful but it just falls flat.

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy

    Unless you enjoy how spying is really done, don't go. You'll be bored. However, if you really want to see how it's done...it'll be interesting. I read the book back when but had forgotten till the film jogged my memory.

    My Week with Marilyn

    A film women drag their men to see, not a very interesting story but two great performances, with Michelle Williams dead-on as Marilyn Monroe and Kenneth Branagh fine as Lawrence Olivier.

    Really enjoyed it. Bit cheesy at times, but thought the action scenes were very good.

    Just saw The Girl with Dragon tattoo remake and thought the original was much better because it was captivating. As the title says, the movie should be about the girl, but I didn’t feel that with the remake. Her character and struggles were diminished because she wasn’t the only focus. Daniel Craig was a bad cast because his strong screen presence and too much screen time left little room for her role to shine. Her main character just went along for the ride as Daniel’s supporting role, and that’s a shame.
    After watching the original I was moved by her character. The remake is just another Hollywood thriller which is a dime a dozen.

    LOL I studied it at an advanced level for 12 years including reading Premchand's Gaban and Godaan in the original. My favorite TV programs on TVAsia include Jashn-e-Bahaar. As the years have gone by, my Hindi skills have actually become better because of TV and films! They were largely academic before, now they are in tune with real usage!

    Then when my son started learning Sanskrit here, I correlated with Hindi, and my knowledge grew even stronger!

    On the other hand, I never studied Tamil formally as I never lived in Chennai till I was 23. So Sentinel has no clue. I learnt to read Tamil myself by correlating speech with posters and TV ads in Chennai and I get by in Chennai with street level talk. But anything formal and I am exposed.

    Even now I spend most of my time in summer in Chennai watching Aastha and Samskar channels and the Bhagavad Katha shown there in pure Hindi all day.
