Inside Job & The End of Wall Street

Over the weekend watched a movie, “Inside Job“.  A movie that tracks the collapse of the Wall Street in 2008 which caused the worldwide recession from which the world is yet to recover.  It tracks and interviews many of those responsible for the financial crash.  Many financial behemoths like Bear Stearns, Lehman Brothers collapsed.  Many…

Movies over the Diwali weekend

The Diwali weekend was spent lazing around at home and watching movies.  Caught up on all the ones i had missed.  Inception was really exceptional both concept wise and in the way the director Christopher Nolan shot it.  Was amazed at the way he was able to narrate the movie. Having read so much about…

The biggest games of India begins today – Commonwealth Games

The wait is over. The complaints built up (courtesy our incompetent media). A few players stayed away.  When the players actually landed, they were astonished at the amount of misinformation and lies told to them by their own media back home.  Which was partly or fully supplied to them by our own homegrown media. Well,…

Its been a while

The new year has not been off to a great start, at least blogging wise for me.  For some strange reason, iam not even checking my blog, visiting any other blogs or even commenting on them. Contrary to the economic conditions worldwide, am swamped with work.  On my way back home, am so tired that…

New Movie Page

Considering the amount of movies i watch, i felt that a separate page is needed to justify it.  So, i have put up a listing of all the movies that i have watched this year in the new page called “Movies“. Yes, its just 11 days into the year but i have already watched  13…

Movie marathon and ratings

Watching movies endlessly these past few weeks.  But iam unable to find any time to write a detailed review of them. If and when i find time, i will write something detailed about the ones i liked.  As of now, a list of the movies and my ratings. Basic Instinct -1 (4/5) Taken  (4/5) A…

Weekend Movies

3:10 to Yuma My rating **** (4/5) Transsiberian My rating *** (3/5) Ugly aur Pagli Ranvir Shorey is brilliant.  Mallika Sherawat is ok.  And the movie is a copy of the Korean hit “My Sassy Girl”. My rating ** (2/5) Bachna Ae Haseeno Another lousy product from the Yash Raj stable.  Cant believe that their…

The 90s

The early 90s were the time when Gulshan Kumar and his T-Series ruled the roost.  There used to be some very tackily made movies starring newbies but with some great music.  You cringe when you see the video today, but just listen to the music and you know what i mean. Mohabbat, Inayat, Karam –…

So many movies…so less time

So, the D-day is here. Will it be Imraan or Harman? Would be too busy this weekend or else would have wanted to catch Jaane Tu.  Or maybe i will watch it on my India trip. The songs of Jaane Tu are far better than Love Story 2050.  Bollywood doesnt have a great history when…

Blog anniversary & Weekend movies

In the whole mess, i forgot something.  On 24th June 2008, i completed 4 years of blogging.  In this period, I moved from Fullhyderabad to Rediffblogs to WordPress.  Never thought i would survive so long.  So ya, iam amazed at my perseverance (if at all this does count).  I have no intentions of stopping even…
