The Dark Knight (2008)
Never in my life have I been so much fascinated and thrilled as I was while watching The Dark Knight. It's a peach of a movie and is fraught with every element a movie needs to create history. Not everyday you come across a movie like this. Spectacular, to say the least.
The Dark Knight starts its journey from where Batman Begins ended and slowly we get into the gripping duel of the batman and the joker as the beautifully crafted story scarily moves into its epic climax. Not only is the plot an engrossing epic, it has a sense of an agonizing tragedy which hits you and gets into you. Kudos to Nolan, who is maturing with every film, for his impeccable direction and awesome portrayal of Batman. The way he has portrayed the psyche of the joker, Harvey Dent and Batman and the way he has convoluted the story-line by pitting against each other the complicated ideologies of good and evil is sensational. Not to forget the electrifying performances of almost everybody who has been in this movie. Bale is flawless as usual and he handles the dual role of Wayne and Batman with perfection. Aaron Eckhart shines as Harvey Dent and Maggie Gyllenhaal does a far better job as Rachel than Katie Holmes did in Batman Begins. Michael Caine is as usual 'proper' as Alfred, but the icing on the cake surely is Heath Ledger. Mr Ledger pulls off a stunner and oh man! is he not good! Quite rightly an Oscar winning performance,deserving all the accolades that has been showered upon him and sadly his last. May he rest in peace.
Folks, to sum up, all I can say is that The Dark Knight is, by all means, one of the greatest movies that has ever been made, if not the greatest. Please don't miss this and be prepared to be mesmerized!
Waste of Time!
When utterly dumb humor meets an inexplicable trashy mess ...guess what we get! You Don't Mess with the Zohan . Can't give you any points for guessing though. A sound plot I never really expected, for its a Sandler movie, so just watched for a good laugh. But what a waste of time. The lines are dull, the humor is agonizingly dumb and its so damn sleazy that your eyes and ears hurt. Even Sandler die-hard fans would reject this no good movie.
Folks, can't write more. Will only tell that if you want to watch a good comedy -- you don't mess with this good-for-nothing trash! Watch it at your own risk!
The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
For all of you who are tired of thoughtless mindless action thrillers that are pouring out in plenty in Hollywood these days, "The Adjustment Bureau" promises to be pleasantly refreshing. Of a genre that can be classified as romantic thriller meeting science fiction, this movie entertains and intrigues you at the same time.
Matt Demon plays David, a New York Congressman with an aspiring political career, who after a couple of chance encounters with Elise(played by Emily Blunt) is convinced that he has met the girl of his dreams and is determined to be with her. But enters into the scene, a bureau,the Adjustment Bureau, as mysterious as it can be, who is hell bent on keeping them apart.
The story is gripping and has the right balance of intrigue and suspense mixed with a correct proportion of give-away of the story without laying it out absolutely. It also gives plenty of food for thought and throws questions which mystify you and you have to go beyond the realms of rationality and shake the very foundation of your existence in order to find the answers.Only thing is that there could have been a little subtlety and the climax could have been dealt with a bit more intelligence only to make it better.
But having said that the movie notches up high points for being unique and spontaneous. A romantic science fiction thriller recommended for all the ages!
Hachi: A Dog's Tale (2009)
So touching...It made me cry!
I watched Hachiko:A Dog's Story today and i was mesmerized.It is a fascinating story of monumental love,devotion and an unheard-of loyalty that will melt your heart,touch you profoundly and leave you in tears.
The plot of the movie is simple enough and it revolves around a dog and the bond it shares with its master and how the dog's love for its master never fades and stands the test of time.This heartwarming tale cut me so deep that by the time the movie ended i was already in tears.
Richard Gere is fantastic in this movie.So is Joan Allen.The direction,from veteran Lasse Hallström, is also very good.(some scenes shown through Hachi's eyes are beautiful and it helps you to understand its perspective.)
Highly recommended for people of all ages.Don't miss this epic tale of love and loyalty.I'm glad i saw it,indeed i am!!
