Movies you watched – December 2012

3 (Moonu) – awesome movie… First movie of dhanush tht i saw n he is just brilliant as an actor… Shruti hassan is hell of an actress but can’t believe she was the one in ‘luck’ opp imran khan. First half is very sweet sugar coated gudda guddi type which actually is real in real world n then come’s reel cinema in second half with tragic end… Don’t knw why a sugar coated film can’t end the same way as it begun… Happy endings makes you feel more rejuvenated :P , much happier, makes you think about the real life and the way you are dealing with your life rather than the tragic films which makes you think more about the reel cinema that you just watched. But anyways I Absolutely loved the film n will give 4.5/5

Talaash – I watched it on Thursday itself and that helped me to enjoy it much more than others did. Its hard to escape from spoilers or reviews or in between comments without any indication of spoiler if you are regular online browser. I have put forward my views regarding Talaash on variousl talaash threads and these are some few below;

Just back from Talaash… Just fucking awesome until the last 5-10 minutes… Whole film is based on climax… Don’t know why did Aamir choose this climax? why aamir? why?…

There are certain films that are made from the point of Box office perspective and then there are films like OMG, Talaash, PST, Shanghai, English Vinglish etc…. which are solely made for Quality and that are completely different from each other…

Two things that spoiled Talaash

1. Aamir should not have promoted it as Suspense film… He should have kept the suspense element as Suspense just like cricket in Lagaan.

2. As zack (sb) said, the film should have ended right after the accident. The surprise element would have totally shocked the audience n the ending would have been Historic…

Those who have already seen the movie would agree with me… But after Talaash Aamir has gained even more respect n has always chosen riskier subjects… If we had more actors like Aamir indian film industry would have had both quality as well as quantity… I would say its his best performance…

Witnessing live fatal death of your loved ones is more excruciatingly painful than just loosing your loved ones is brilliantly emoted by Aamir onscreen.. His act was just brilliant including all cast n crew…4/5

Going by the book – another korean movie but b4 saying anything i want to say tht they make very unique kind of movies… In the city, bank robbery has increased manifold n people hav lost confidence on police department. The new chief of police has been allocated to bring down the crime of robbery n he takes a very unique concept to gain confidence of public by implementing a training programme tht goes horribly wrong… It’s a simple comedy drama with a very unique concept. 3/5

The Dark Knight Rises – Watched it second time and just loved it the way I loved it first time. it’s no different to Indian Masala Movie but with real high graphics, high dose of entertainment value and high budgeted movie where the lead actor can really act and the only difference is that in bw Indian hero fights like a superhero (ek kick se 4 log aasman mein ud jaate hain)… and English superhero fights like normal man (man to man)… It has awesome background music score with off-course a happy ending. 4/5

    5. Hot Tub Time Machine—-Good humor watch it if you are a fan of John Cusak..!!

    6. Jab Tak Hai Jaan—1st half was good….last hour was pathetic and very slow with no link to plot..the whole Lost of memory sequence should have been Edited..!!

    8. Talaash—-Again Good overall but bad 2nd half where movie loose its plot….and some Un-Answered questions—-Like who was the sniper who killed Sashi…..

      The last two Statham movies I watched were “Blitz” and “Safe”, and think these two are among his better movies. For me “Mechanic” was underwhelming.

      Harold Kumar 3, Girl Next Door – have them in collection but yet to see. The hero of Girl Next Door, Emile Hirsch is a promising actor … seen him in “Into the Wild (2007)”, he and the movie both was very good.

      American Beauty, saw it when released and didn’t like at all, a laborious watch it was at that time … dont know whether the perception will change if see it again now after many years

      Pink Panther 2, the trailer put me off and lost my interest in it

      Yes Man, probably the best movie of Jim Carey in last 6/7 years … loved the movie, a very good one … a simple and delightful story, and for me it was inspiring one … FS, you can try this to see if it is inspiring … Jim Carey was good and Zooey Deschanel was adorable

    I have seen two movies as of nw in December
    Talaash : Being a fan of thriller i was kinda under-whelmed by its climax.Also the 2nd half was a bit dragging.What i liked most abt the movie was Kareena Kapoor acting just one word brilliant.Also thought best lines were given to Kareena.Aamir acted well as well.
    The Man on Fire : Denzel Washington is hired as a bodyguard to protect a girl.The girl got kidnapped and Denzel injured badly and its assumed kidnappers kill the girl.Denzel recovers and promises to himself will kill everyone who is involved in this crime.
    This was a good thriller. I really liked the movie. Though the end was sad.

      @The Man on Fire (2004)

      The movie is based on a novel of the same name. The writer even stated that though he dislikes film adaptations of books he liked this adaptation of his book.

      Seen it a long time ago, Denzel Washington stole the show and little miss Dakota Fanning was angelic. I liked it but remember I was annoyed with the jerky camera movement at the end portions.

      Bollywood copied it in “Ek Ajnabee”, Amitabh, Arjun Rampal starrer. I also thought “Trasporter 2″ had shades of this movie.

    @FS

    Going by the Book (Hangul: ??? ??; RR: Bareuge Salja) is a 2007 South Korean film.
    This is a remake of the 1991 Japanese film Asobi no jikan wa owaranai (??????????).

    Movies Watched Recently:
    Talaash – loved it..totally my kind of movie..well-acted drama/noir with dark atmosphere & supernatural twist.
    The Campaign – Hilarious comedy/satire about elections in USA but not as good as Will Ferrell’s other hits. Zach Galifianakis (Hangover) impresses again.
    The Collector – Enjoyable if you like torture porn movies like Saw, Hostel
    Raaz 3 – Timepass B-grade movie with more unintentional laughs than scares.
    Ted – Nice one-time watch buddy comedy between Mark Walhberg and a teddy bear.
    Skyfall – One of the best Bond films with great acting, emotional depth, beautiful cinmatography and a maniacal villain.

    The Bullet Vanishes (2012)
    AA
    A highly entertaining Chinese detective thriller set in the 1930 period in a bullet factory, where a series of murders occur and the bullets just found to disappear after being used.

    Story: When a young girl at a bullet factory dies under mysterious circumstances, two detectives must investigate the reasons for her death – and the strange occurrences that follow – as they themselves become the target of the phantom killer.

    The movie is a homage to Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes. The two detectives Song and Guo, are comparable to Sherlock Holmes and Watson, one of them being the meticulous and mad detective type and the other being the fastest gun in the area. The poster also had shades of it, and then there is a supernatural theme, though the detectives are hell bent on finding an realistic explanation.

    The movie has good pace, excellent visuals recreating that era’s atmosphere. The main casts deliver good performances. Main detective Lau Ching-Wan is excellent, certainly want to see more of him after this. Current hearthrob Nicolas Tse certainly has come of age and gives a mature performance. Fortune teller Mini Yang is eye-candy. The reasons explained for vanishing bulletes are interesting. There is a small character not related to the main story, a jail inamte. Song’s interactions with her and the “perfect crime” flashback are also memorable. I wonder if they are going to make a sequel of this one as the movie was hit in the box-office.

    Cautions – you have to be good at reading subtitles. Highly recommended for detective thriller fans. A 4/5 from me.
