I have been hearing/reading about this movie for over six months now – Eat, Pray & Love starring Julia Roberts, I had bookmarked the trailer in my YouTube favourites as well to remind me to see the movie. The movie is based on a true story which came out as a New York Times Best-Seller book of the same name written by Elizabeth Gilbert. Today I booked for myself and saw the movie alone (my wife said the movie sounds boring, if you ask for Endhiran I will come and all my friends were still busy in their office) in…

Saw this movie “Shutter Island” a psychological thriller film today. Both “Leonardo DiCaprio” as Teddy Daniels a U.S. Marshal and Ben Kingsley as Dr. John Cawley a head psychiatrist were brilliant in their performance. The movie happens in 1954 with scars of World War II still fresh in everyone’s memory.

U.S.Marshal “Teddy” comes to investigate the issue, over the course he uncovers lot of mysteries about the place and faces a conspiracy to have him declared “insane” – his…

I noticed in the US Consulate (Chennai) FaceBook page they are showing in Consulate Library as part of their Saturday Matinee the movie “Abyss” by Titanic & Avatar fame James Cameron.  I was not sure whether it will be worth the effort to go for it – there may be too much crowd and long waiting (as the show is free for all), painful security restrictions at the consulate gates. In the end it was all easy. I went in about 45 minutes before the show, spent the time in their well-furnished library reading books, then went to the auditorium…

I am a fan of Bruce Willis and I enjoy Tracy Morgan on screen, so I had good expectation about this movie “Cop out” and I wanted to see it, which I did today. After seeing the movie, I should say I am pretty disappointed. The story, action, comedy were all below average – nothing that impresses you. The movie is about two NYPD cops who get into trouble with their unconventional approach to catching crime, the plot was how they get into a mess with Drug Mafia  and finally kill them all.

Saw this movie “2012” today in DVD. It is yet another Dooms Day movie that predicts that the world will end soon, this one says it will end in 2012 courtesy the Mayan calendar. Roland Emmerich, the director who created many other doomsday films like Independence Day (1996) and The Day After Tomorrow (2004) has directed this thriller. The story is about an American geologist learning from an Indian astrophysicist that neutrinos from a massive solar flare are causing the temperature of the Earth’s core to increase rapidly and very soon the whole of earth’s surface will change without recognition.…
