Who forced you?
"Amour" (Fr.) - a gem, highly recommended.
Here Comes the Boom, it was really funny.
Red- Bruce Willis
Saw Benjamin Button last night. Nice theme music in the end. Reminded me of Forrest Gump.
Man on Wire
Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.
Les Miserábles. 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!
Let’s see, in the last two months or so we have watched.
The Amazing Race - The Seventh Season
Game of Thrones - The Complete Second Season
The Adventures of Tintin
The Hobbit should arrive next week.
Skyfall Enjoyed it a lot, just couldn't deal with a blonde Javier Bardem:shock:
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.
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!
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy
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.
Just saw Side Effects... It was great... Soderbergh is so good.
Just watched The OZ, pretty boring at the start but getting more thrilling at the middle...
Intouchables (French) -- liked it, touching -- the critics seem to have flayed it, frustrated chaps
Reminded me of Rainman.
I GOATed Michael Douglas a few years after this epic was made.
Dead Man Down
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?
Ides of March.
Interesting. A welcome change to that awfully boring movie i saw yesterday, Submarine, lol.
I actually "live" in the matrix. But yeah, for you guys, India it is !
Rajdhani Express with Leander Paes
how was it?
liked the 3D effects on some action scenes
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.
Of course i choked in the end.
Funny. One of my favs. haha
"Let the Right One In". Suprisingly beautiful and touching horror film. Could be my all time favorite.
Hansel and Gretel....
We were the only people in a theater of over 300 seats..
Great movie with a short chopped ending.
Die Hard 4
It was on TV so I thought "Why Not?". Great movie!
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.
It was funny, disgusting and it had a MASSIVE gringe factor
I watched the premiere of Potemkhin Cruiser...
it was terrible completely and utterly terrible.
Avatar: the last airbender SERIES not movie. Amazing and loved it! Highly highly recomend and imbd rating is a 9.3/10
Now watching legend of korra
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
Watched it again. Could use me some of them greens.
"Attack of the TW Mods From Outer Space"
^ Is this the Spielberg remake or the 1930 original ?
Saw Hitchcock. Loved the way Hopkins talks ... with his mouth wide open
Sleepwalk with Me
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 ???
Seems like an Homage to the GOAT director, Ed Wood.
Gandhi -- gr8 movie.
Eight Oscars. Wow!
Jack the Giant Slayer. It was a'ight.
Searching for Sugarman. Nice.
Really? As far as horror movies go, I loved it. Went more for creating a creepy atmosphere than the sudden "jump" scares.
I stopped when they found him, found it quite boring.
