The movie (The Last King of Scotland) was about the Late Uganda Military Ruler Idi Amin and the friendship with a young Scotland doctor who comes to Uganda to help in an NGO. The doctor initially reluctant to take the President’s Physician job, then get lured by the benefits and status it provides and soon becomes Amin’s trusted adviser – little did he know that closeness to power centres are always a double-edged sword. The movie depicts the doctor’s emotional dilemma between his Western Principals and friendship with the President. It doesn’t attempt to be a historic record of all…

Today during my flight by Japan Airlines from Tokyo to Singapore I watched A Good Year by Russell Crowe. While selecting the movie my expectations was very limited. Having seen Russell Crowe in Gladiator, I didn’t expect him to perform well on a love story (don’t ask me why) and the story line of a London Banker going to France Wineyard and finding love was sounding slow and boring. By the time I made my mind, the movie was into its 20th minute or so, but the movie went very interesting and I was hooked. I saw it once again throughout to feel the entire story…

Today I went to “Ghost Rider” in the multiplex inside Plaza Singapura. Honestly, we haven’t heard about the movie before, had very little expectations other than Nicholas Cage name.

I am not complaining the storyline is unbelievable, but it had nothing worth mentioning or even seeing what so ever. Total washout from my perspective. Having said that Kids and Teenager might find the movie interesting, for…

Yesterday (June 9th) evening all of us at Tech Ed 2005, had a blast. The park was open only for TechEd Attendees from 7 PM to 11 PM (in fact as the photo below shows we were inside even at 11:15 PM). We didn’t have to pay for anything, everything was free – entry to the park, entry to all the rides, foods at all restaurants, special buffets at many places of the park and more. The wait time for each ride was less than 10-15 minutes. This was by far the best session in Tech Ed 2005 :-) Overall, we all…

For me this movie “The Terminal” had everything going for it, has if its not enough that it was directed by Steven Spielberg and starring Tom Hanks it had a storyline around what’s happening in an Airport in US – a subject that has intrigued me every time I fly. The story is about a man getting struck at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport as he is denied entry to US and at the same time not able to return to his country (one of the eastern European soviet bloc), due to a revolution. An interesting but rare…
