After almost a decade, Mel Gibson returns to the big screen with Edge of Darkness. When someone of Gibson’s stature returns then surely you can’t miss it [like it was hard to miss Schumacher’s return to F-1]. But just like Schumacher’s dismissal performance, Edge of Darkness too is dull. That’s it, I said it in one line, and now you may read on if you are a big fan of the ‘Braveheart’ ‘Patriot’.

The A Team . . .
There is a golden rule I follow whenever I go to watch an action movie; I leave my brain back home and trust me the results are spectacular. I don’t crib this is impossible and this more impossible. I don’t suffer from brain damage due to all the blowing and shooting. And most importantly I don’t need any brain to figure out the story or the characters. Now if you can do this, then you should definitely go and watch ‘The A- Team’ and you will come out of the movie theatre a happy man. Continue reading “The A Team . . .”
Fishing for Compliments!!!
Everyone like compliments! I don’t remember coming across someone who do not like being complimented; there are people who do not like being complimented by someone in particular, whatever the reason may be [may be they sound more like comment and lesser compliment], but all in all everybody like receiving compliments. Continue reading “Fishing for Compliments!!!”
CLINT – The Legend. . .
In the summer of 2004 for the first time I saw a western movie [before that I had heard and seen their promos but never ventured in watching them]. It was after my 12th exams that I had so much free time to watch anything I can lay my hands on and it was by sheer chance I came across a DVD with three western movies, ‘A Fistful of Dollars’, ‘For a Few Dollars’ and ‘The Good The Bad and The Ugly’. Those were the first three movies of Clint Eastwood and those were the first three movies of Clint Eastwood which I watched, but they surely were not the last.

While watching Robin Hood, till the interval I was wondering this is not the Robin Hood story I know about. Well Ridley Scott said that this movie will be an altogether different take on the story of Robin Hood and yes it is, just that it is not what exactly I plan to see. Continue reading “Robin Hood!!!”
Shutter Island . . .
Nothing amuses me more than psychological suspense thrillers with a pinch of horror in it, and when the making team comprises of Scorsese and DiCaprio then you can’t miss this ride and hence I didn’t. It was a long wait for Indian viewers before they actually released it; I had started to lose hope of it ever getting released in India. Continue reading “Shutter Island . . .”
Prince Of Persia Sands of Time
I was around 10 years old when I first played Prince of Persia first on the black and white CRT monitors. That was the first real game which I played on computer and I had no idea that it is the beginning of a lifetime affair. Today as I write this post, I am still playing Prince of Persia, the difference is now the monitors are LCD, the graphics 3D and the story has reached to Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands. For those of you who don’t know, Prince of Persia Sands of Time is the movie based on a game of the same name, and in the gaming series there are three more, Forgotten Sands being the latest. So when I came to know about POP movie being made I know I have to watch it. Continue reading “Prince Of Persia Sands of Time”
