I suggest we start with suresh's.
Interesting, well paced, well acted and very well written. And damn, those feels.
Shouldn't we start at IBM and Wipro's in Armonk?
in movie departed,,, In the end there is a Rat after that guy is shot dead. and movie ends with Rat krawling on the wall. What does that mean ??
The Time Traveler's Wife. The only thing that saves this mess of a movie is how hot Rachel McAdams is...
.. That the guy was a rat.
I'm not sure if English is second language, but rat is understood to be a cheat or go behind someone's back. If you 'rat' on someone, you're selling them out. Damon's character was a rat in that he was playing both sides and giving information.
Double agent sounds better as opposed to RAT.:-|
Collateral(2004). Fantastic film,Michael Mann has never let me down. I'm not a big action movie fan,but this is one of the best I've seen in the genre....
captain america 2. WAY better than 1. go see it
yea but Daemon was a Good guy. he was working for the Good. so Good people or agent Can't be a Rat. Rat is always a bad person.
I guess he wasn't as 'good' as you thought. I always meant to see the original 'Internal Affairs' from 2002. It's supposed to be very good as well...
47 Ronin. Keanu Reeves is the man.
Downloading it now
He was working for the police so he could provide Jack Nicholson with a means to avoid detection from the cops.
Meanwhile Nicholson worked with the FBI and turned in who he pleasesd.
Not much of a spoiler but yeah, slight plot point. Mark Wahlberg was so good in this film
ok so I wonder about this movie. because 9 out of 10 Critics gave this movie 1 star out of 4 which is bad. what is going on there ?
Watched "Walk the Line" the Johnny Cash story last night, pretty good. You can watch it here: http://www.tubeplus.me/player/626771/Walk_the_Line/
Finished watching Melancholia again, directed by Lars Von Trier. In my top five movies... man every time I watch it, it stays in my head for days and days.
The acting wasn't really good,(it is Keanu Reeves) and some things just made no sense, but it was entertaining nonetheless. Kind of like Transformers, how it made a LOT of money and was entertaining, but it got such bad reviews.
The Amazing Spider man 2. Wasn't anything special, one of the lesser Super Hero movies.
Sick boy... A low budget horror film. The story was all right, but the acting from the lead actress was terrible...
The Beach(2000). One of my guilty pleasures. It's not highly regarded by most people,but I've seen it a few times now and enjoyed it every time even if it is a mess...
Venus in Fur
Comic-drama from Roman Polanski explores hierarchies and hidden agendas in male-female relationships. Fine French cast of only two actors, enjoyable and thought provoking.
Lively documentary about Human Rights Watch activities
Inception. I'd avoided this for years,but decided to give a go. Found it a bit hard to follow after about an hour,but still enjoyed it...
The Book Thief - Very good movie.
I really must resume watching movies, used to see one every night till a couple months back.
I saw the first few minutes of this one night, but maybe put it away since i was short on time.
Gravity. Wanted to see this for awhile.
Very boring to me, got onto it for about 40 minutes and then just turned it off.
I finished watching GWTW just yesterday.
Interns. Very funny movie. My kind of humour.
So Verdict on Spiderman 2 ? What do you guys think ?
winslet won the academy award for best actress for her role, and her young lover is quite appealing ... both do nude quite well
question i dont understand
if she was illiterate at the time of her crime, then she was unfairly convicted of being the one of the six to be in charge/write the report and receive a life sentence ... why did she not mention this when she was being questioned in court? teh others got 4 years and she got life
Stop Making Sense. It's fairly good,but then I'm not sure what standard to judge it on. There's no plot,no acting - just a band playing some songs
The Railway Man
Strong post-war drama about emotional scarring, healing, resolution. Excellent Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.
Saw this in NY in '84. Talking Heads.
I saw a short docu on MMA fighter Frank Shamrock. It was very good. There's a scene where he finds his homeless brother living under a bridge that was riveting.
The Holy Mountain... what a trip that was...
Internal Affairs was a good movie. Watched it the other day and the story is still riveting. Gere plays corrupt very well.
any good movies out yet? Godzilla is coming this week. United states air force was interviewed concerning this threat.
Watched a rare gem before called Citizen X(1995) based on the real life Russian serial killer Andrei Chikatilo and the almost decade long manhunt for him. Really fantastic stuff,but most people will miss it because it was a tv movie only...
Oh yeah,that was a decent film as well. The Departed was based on the Asian film of the same (English translated) name from 2002 though: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0338564/
Watched The Lunchbox yesterday. Absolutely fabulous.
Have you guys watched the movie called "IN FEAR". ??? it is getting some big time reviews like BEST horror flick of the year and such. and won multiple awards at Sundance.
*spoiler for The Reader*
Because she was incredibly ashamed of being illiterate. Wasn't that the entire point of the film?
Munich. Fairly well made,but a little on the dull side...
I hated it.
A New York Heartbeat
Here's what says IMDb
Spider, a young gang leader, gets in over his head when he robs a notorious gangster. On the run, he's taken in by a sheltered young woman and her reclusive uncle, a legendary mobster gunned down by the same gangster now pursuing Spider.
Are you all excited for new Godzilla movie ??? wonder if Godzilla dies at the end ?
It's hard to imagine any scenario where a movie like that is actually good,but you never know...
I pronounce it Gojira like the Japanese
Watched Before Sunrise and Before Sunset back to back,may watch the 3rd one Before Midnight today as well. Man,been a long time since I've watched 3 movies in a day but I feel like it's better to watch them all together...
