More Movies

Watched couple of movies over the week. Revisted The straight story and its cinematography charmed me the same way it charmed me years ago. The soundtrack is something I m searching for ..
My Sassy Girl After reading about this movie on the net I waited patiently to get hold of the Korean version. The movie begining gives you away that you can expect some sentimental ending. Then the movie goes on for another 1 hr in a very light way. It was good to see the streets of Korea, its subways everything reminds of the fact there are people far away living life the same way we do. Two strangers meet and the girl is of dominant type. The movie reminded me in someway of 500 days of summer as they fall in and out of love. Finally the movie takes the sentimental route and has a feel good ending. I read that this is based on the true story and the true story doesnt end the same way this movie ends.

Serpico was another movie which I watched and the movie is about corruption within the police depart…

Lucky Robots

When Robots or Machines are shutdown they are shutdown. There are some machines which is supposed to keep track of time though it is shutdown but still we can call it shutdown. Machines rested better than us. For us I dont know where we are heading. I used to wonder what will happen if I take off for more than a week? How will the show run? Now after being out of office more than a week I got the answer. Yes the show will go on and you will still be running the show. You are expected to run the show.
Even when you are taking a shit you are expected to hold on to your mobiles. The worst part is many people enjoy this life style. The moment you start to crib they say this is why you are paid. I feel like holding a tiger by its tail. I can neither leave it not hold it.
People dont call you to enquire if you are feeling ok. Even if they ask there will be a hidden work behind that question.
How long can you run like this? How long can your body take it?
Something has to be done soon ..

Superbad

Are you a fan of American Pie or Scary movie series then you will like this movie. The movie does have some over the top comedy and has a very slow start. But the moment the guys get the fake id the movie picks up pace and what follows is a laugh riot.

McLovin at the liquor store, Singing with the pot heads, Crazy cops, getting kicked out of a party by a friend so many things happens in just one night.

The movie is about the measures three teenagers take to get their hands on some booze. Did they get it?

As any other teenage movie this movie does have some awkward moments so better avoid to watch it with someone who is a puritan.

யுத்தம் செய்

மிஷ்கினின் அஞ்சாதே எனக்கு பிடித்த படங்களில் ஒன்று அதே போல் சேரனின் தவமாய் தவமிருந்தும் எனக்கு பிடித்த படங்களில் ஒன்று. இவர்கள் இருவரும் இணந்தால்? ஒரு வித எதிர்பார்ப்பு இருக்கவே செய்தது. ஆனால் ….

வெளிநாட்டிலும் சரி நம் நாட்டிலும் சரி ஒரு ஆணின் உறுப்பையோ அல்லது பெண்ணின்
உறுப்பையோ செக்ஸ் நோக்கம் இல்லாமல் திரையில் காட்டிவிட்டால் அது ஒரு “ஆர்ட்” அல்லது ஒரு கலைப் படம் மிகவும் realistic ஆக எடுக்கப்ப்பட்ட படம் என்று பெயர் பெற்று விடும். நம்ம ஊர் திரைப்படங்களில் இப்படி பட்ட காட்சிகள் வருமா? இப்படி பட்டவைகளை குறித்து நேரடியாக வசனங்கள் இடம் பெற முடியுமா? என்ற கேள்விக்கு மட்டும் விடை அளிக்கிறது இத்திரைப்படம். மற்றபடி உப்பு சப்பில்லாமல் செல்கிறது.

Severe ஆக தலை வலிக்கும் மனிதனின் கதாப்பாத்திரத்தை சேரனை தவிர வேறு யாராலும் இவ்வளவு தத்ரூபமாக நடிக்க முடியாது. புருவத்தை இரண்டு விரல்களால் பிடித்துக் கொண்டு அவர் தலை கவிழ்ந்து இருக்கும் நொடிகள் அருமை. சேரனை ஒரு tough guy ஐ போல காட்டியிருப்பார்களோ என்று நினைத்தேன் ஆனால் தவமாய் தவமிருந்து சேரனை இதிலும் பார்க்க முடிகிறது. தங்கச்சி தங்கச்சி என்று துடிக்கிறார் ஆ…

Eden Lake

When you think that you have just seen almost all scary movies that could be made and when you complement youself that nothing can scare you beyond Texas chainsaw, Hills have eyes, Wrong turn, Wolf creek etc here comes Eden lake. Though this movie follows the stereotype of all other movies one thing thats special about this movie is at some point you would have come across the characters such as the yobs shown in this movie. Those who have been to UK will be able to relate. There are some cliches thrown in like the guy wanting to give his girlfriend the ring and some fake scares but overall you will feel for the couples and you would pray to GOD that revenge will be served cold to the yobs. The ending will leave you even more frustrated and helpless but I feel thats the success of the movie. If you are a fan of horror movies dont miss this .. but be prepared to face the consequences of watching a gruesome movie.

The Seven Year Itch

This movie tried to portray the duality in a married man in a comical way. Marlyn Monroe looks fab as usual. the movie has more monologues than dialogues but still it is enjoyable. The Agni Natchathiram Janakaraj, VKR and Uthama Pursushan Prabhu came to my mind when I was watching this movie.
Though the movie ended blandly it was still worth a watch. The humour doesnt hit you in the face its more subtle.
