    Saw Benjamin Button last night. Nice theme music in the end. Reminded me of Forrest Gump.

    Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

    Les MiserĂ¡bles. While vocally not as strong as most Broadway runs of the musical, the visual impact was astonishing. It can be a tad too long (2h 37mins) but it doesn't get tedious at all.
    The best musical they did on film, so far. Miles better than Phantom of th Opera.
    Really enjoyed it. If you find yourself being a fan of musicals, it's a must-go film.

    Really agreed with your review. Only thing is, Dakota Fanning isn't on this film. You mean young Cosette? The little blonde girl? That's not Fanning.
    Fanning is 19 years old nowadays! :)

    Really enjoyed Life of Pi. It was very intriguing and emotional, now I don't normally cry, but I couldn't help myself with this one. :oops:

    I read the book and thought they stuck to the plot well, it was very much how I imagined it while reading. Great effects too. A++ VERY NICE VERY NICE!

    Saw Django Unchained the other day. Nice but way too much needless killing in the end. Maybe that;s how it was back then ?

    I enjoyed it too but funny how the tiger's size kept changing in each scene and even though he's supposed to be full grown, he's still tiny. Realized it was a computer generated image. The main actor studies in a college in my city and ran into some problems for the time he took off. He had to carry his homework with him on location, and I believe submit a written apology or something. Can't remember the details but the college was quite stern and unhappy about it.

    "Sparticus" GOAT of all movies. That is where Abraham Lincoln got his idea to free the slaves.

    Intouchables (French) -- liked it, touching -- the critics seem to have flayed it, frustrated chaps :)

    Reminded me of Rainman.

    Colin Farrell in yet another dark gangster film with a romantic subplot. Average for this genre, Farrell improves everything he touches.

    I agree with the tiger part, but I also was impressed with how real it looked in some scenes (despite the size issue). I was wondering though, do you live in India? I think I saw one of your posts saying you grew up there, but do you live there now?

    First half was OK. Second half was kind of weird. It was not realistic, and had too many disconnected parts, and very unconvincing events.

    Overall, it can just be tolerated if you have nothing else to do at that time.

    "Let the Right One In". Suprisingly beautiful and touching horror film. Could be my all time favorite.

    Lawless.

    With Mardy Fish playing Howard, and Nadal playing the indestructible Forrest. I think Gulbis was playing Jack but not sure. Nole was the Special Deputy guy, Rake.

    Once upon a time in Anatolia.

    The movie really began for me after it was over ... the last scene made me ponder whether there were relationship between suspect and victim's wife, was the victim's wife the proecutor's daughter, who was the pretty girl in the village etc etc

    ^ Is this the Spielberg remake or the 1930 original ?

    Saw Hitchcock. Loved the way Hopkins talks ... with his mouth wide open :)

    I've always loved Mike Birbiglia's comedy so I was pretty biased to liking this movie before watching. I guess I'd call it him telling his story, which he does in his typically hilariously skewed way.

    ^ Darn. I did not know the reference was to Plan 9 from outer space. And (as an aside) all this while I wondered why they named that operating system Plan 9. So it was after this movie ???

    Really? As far as horror movies go, I loved it. Went more for creating a creepy atmosphere than the sudden "jump" scares.
