The Expendables (2010)
Chicks said: "OH! I want that gun..."
Yeah! one of the most anticipated movies of the year from Hollywood. It's always great to see your all time childhood hero's in one action packed movie.
But, was bit taken back when all the chicks started saying "Oh! I want that gun..." after seeing the movie before us. err.. wasn't this meant to be pure guys movie?? not a chick flick...
How ever 8 Expendables (including me in the gang)today went to see this movie... AWESOME! We too wanted that GUN.... The scene would slightly be second to what you would see in "Predators" where the dude fires through the woods...
By the way I'm a fan of Tarkovsky, kishlovsky, Kurosawa, Jean...to Spielberg, Cameron, Peter and so on.. so I do have a wide taste of movies. Don't expect serious dialogs or cinematic master pieces out of this... its pure raw action, packed with stars for those who enjoyed them in the 80's and 90's.
Statham & Lee was brilliant... Though I wanted more kick ass stuff from Lee. Loved the scene and the sarcasm between Sly, Arnold and Bruce... "...Oh he wants to be the precedent" You gotta know the connections and should know who these guys are if you really wanna enjoy this movie 100%.
So go watch it! I would say for anyone who grew up on action movies in the 80 - 90's.

If you watch Movies... don't miss AVATAR
I waited over 1.5hrs in the queue to watch AVATAR. well I must say that it was worth the time and double or triple the money I spent on it...
Fist I loved Terminator as a kid... then Alien 2 and T2... With T2 he borough 3D animated characters alive in the big screen.... followed by the massive Titanic. And today he has definitely revolutionized history of film making with AVATAR. Unfortunately I got to see the normal 2D version of it coz we don't get iMax theaters in our country yet... it did the magic.
the AVATAR's and the Na'vis were really acting... Pandora was real... amazing art direction.... they have made a whole universe a real world out in that big screen. The details they have gone in to is just amazing. OK I'm just over-hyped after seeing the movie.... No its seriously amazing and hats off to Cameron and the crew.
Talking about the story... it's simple yet flowing nicely where you get attached to. I fell in love with Neytiri.. :) Behind the plot it speaks to all the humans living in this planet earth about a common big issue which we don't realize or ignore. So there's lot more to get from AVATAR than the amazing graphics.
I'm waiting to get the DVD with all the extras and the making of footages of the film. So go ahead enjoy and take the message of AVATAR... I'm sure there will be more to come in the future or better and new revolutions of movie making, but AVATAR is already a Classic... and in my opinion it should remain as it is with out sequels...

A film I searched for years...
I saw this film for the first time back in the mid 90's when i was just a kid. And that led me searching for this movie for good 13 or 14 years coz I couldn't remember the name and only thing I knew was that Spielberg did it. Back then I was living in a area where the technological advances were minimal and very low recourses and very little international exposure. But I knew Spielberg because of E.T and Indiana Jones which I watched before this film. And just like those this one garbed my childhood imaginations and became one of the favorites.
Yes its not a great movie if you compare it with E.T or a Dark knight... But every genre or every type of creation has its audience. It might not win the hearts of the judges at CANNES or Oscars but defiantly it will win hearts of those kids and people who are young at heart and who can enjoy a sweetness of a film.
I rate it a ten coz I loved it so much and coz I searched it for years and I was so happy to find it.
