Wes Anderson’s The The Darjeeling Limited

Well i should like this movie coz its wes anderson’s. Comparing to other works of Wes anderson like Rushmore,The royal Tenenbaums this movie shows his movie making skills. Like the royal tenenbaums this movie is a dramedy. Acting of Owen wilson,Adrien Brody,Jason Schwartzman should receive appreciation. The movie is shot in India, specifically areas of Rajasthan. I would say this movie will satisfy wes anderson fans! For others also this is a good flick. But this movie entertain wes anderson fans more than others. Those who are onto action movies or pure slapstick comedies should stay away from this film.The story revolves around three brothers who don’t trust each other haven’t met since their father’s death.And their spiritual journey planned by elder bro (owen) actully to meet their mom in India. And there is no need to give a spoiler alert. These king of movie dont get spoiled by telling its story its actually the way its presented makes us sit in from of the screen.

Before watching the feature film Darjleeng Limited ou should see Hotel Chevalier which is actually a short film and will give an intro and mood for the film!

My rating for this movie is 6/10.

Will Avatar Gross 3 Billion?

UPDATE : Avatar outgrossed titanic on january 25 2010.

UPDATE : Avatar will finish around $2.8 billion like titanic finished at $1.8 without touching 2 billion !

So tell me which is the highest grossing movie of all time answer is “avatar”.

The movie is by far the best movie i have seen in 30 years (Iam 23 years old okay).. It raised the bar in film making! A true visual treat.

The previous generation says this kind of feeling was there for them for the star wars series. The movie is grossing at a fast pace. Even the 2D version is very well received in the theaters.  But lemme tell you one thing if you are watching avatar it should be in 3D. That is when the movie becomes real! Yes you are in pandora!!!

Using the stereoscopic 3d camera for all the scenes you are virtually, sorry actually there.

Avatar is the first movie to gross $1 Billion worldwide  in 17 days! Titanic took 5 months to reach there!

I would say avatar will soon outgross Titanic’s $1.8 billion soon and reach $2 billion mark! (That did happen)

And i think it will collect few more “billions” before ending its theatrical run! May be a $3 billion

$2.8 billion from theatrical run and another 500 million fron home video (3D). So to sum up

$ 3.5 Billion From Theatrical Run (If re-released) + $500 Million From Home Video(Blu-ray & DVD) + Satellite rights  =Total revenue from the movie production =More than  $4 Billion…

Hello i am talking about a movie!!

So for creating a record or to reach $3 billion the only option is to re-release avatar in the summer as previously planned!

How and Why?

1)Superb visual treat.

2)3D experience.

3)People watching again and again in the theaters itself.

4)And as it has to be seen in theaters i dont think the piracy or the scene world will affect avatar at all!!!!!!

As Bluray 3D specification is finalized and when Avatar hits the shelves in 3D bluray disks that is when 3D comes to home entertainment! And what will be the revenue for it!!

Those who have seen only in 2D one word for you “watch it in 3D” it has to be seen to believe.

Dude where is the party?

Dude where is the party?

Excellent movie!

This movie is by far one of the best comedy I have seen in years! Oops i usually overrate the movies a lil bit.

It might contain some rather racist actions and comments towards Indians, but its more like racism you can laugh about rather than getting angry at. I wouldn’t call this an all racist movie because characters in this movie all had different personalities ranging from smart to stupid, ugly to nice,  which is basically found in every type of society.

In addition, Sunil Thakkar was a classic in this movie and really made the movie worthwhile! I couldn’t find a single scene by him that I didn’t laugh at! Kal penn did complete justice to his role. As i am not an american indian i couldnt comment on how they would have felt watching the movie!

Well done job for a well done movie!

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle

t50866wvg7j.jpg

Hilarious Stoner Comedy…Everything “Dude Where’s My Car” should have been!!!

“Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle” is an amusing, hilarious comedy not to be taken too seriously and not to be dismissed as just another silly stoner comedy. Certainly there are plenty of elements which appeal to those dophamine, “good times” movie-goers, yet there are also some classic instances of comedic greatness. Aside from chronicling two inane potheads on a quest to satisfy their appetites, “White Castle” offers a great coming-of-age and funny coincidence premise, which reminds us of the heavy, sadistic curveballs life hurls at us, sometimes when we merely desire something simple and cannot attain it. Here is a story of a simple goal by two simple minds: to find a White Castle hamburger joint and fulfill the lasting effects of “the munchies”. Yet, as these two stoner friends come to realize, even the seemingly simplest of goals in life can be impossible to achieve, due to such disturbances as irony, circumstance, error, and misfortune, as they are all encountered in this journey. The comic elements are listless: stoner instinct-gone horribly awry, catastrophic error, not-so-pleasant raunchy surprise, near-death escapes in the most unlikeliest of ways, and the eventual finesse of overcoming all obstacles to finally enjoy a binge at a hamburger joint. This is a fresh, original, and satisfying comedy, and though it is nothing of a brilliant production or a cinematic masterpiece, there are plenty of the elements here which constitute for a barrel of laughs and a genuinely entertaining experience at the movies

The Girl Next Door

200px-girl_next_door_movie.jpg

marketing is deceiving…one of the sweetest movies in years

The Girl Next Door’s tagline “Matt didn’t see her coming…but all his friends have!” is very deceiving, because the movie is not like that at all. When you see this, you’ll expect a raunchy, borderline porn movie, but what you get is a refreshing, adorable, and sweet love story with great performances from Emile Hirsch and Elisha Cuthbert.

Matthew Kidman (Emile Hirsch, The Emperor’s Club, Lords of Dogtown) is not a geek by any means. He’s your everyday nice guy who’s never really ‘lived’. He is the top student, the class president, and he’s in charge of bringing a teenage super genius to the U.S.A. Everything is going fantastic, because he even gets accepted to Georgetown. Only problem is, he needs the money to get to the school, and this can only be paid by winning a scholarship. A few days before his speech on why he deserves the scholarship, Matt meets Danielle (Elisha Cuthbert, ’24’, Weezer’s ‘Perfect Situation video), a breathtakingly beautiful girl who (after a hilarious few scenes where they meet) he instantly falls for, and she falls for him.

For the first part of the movie, you see Danielle, the near unfairly sexy girl, push Matt to limits he hasn’t gone to, such as running in the street naked, swimming in a stranger’s pool, and skipping school. They’re falling in love, and it’s easy to see on screen, and it’s adorable.

Just when it can’t get any better for Matt, things take a turn for the worse. One of his best friends, Eli (the hilarious Chris Marquette), who is a massive porn addict, goes through his collection, and finds a tape…and who is the star? Danielle. Turns out, Danielle had just quit her job as a porn star and decided to turn over a new leaf. After a near tear-jerking scene, Danielle returns to her old career by contacting her old boss, a gritty and suave porn producer named Kelly (Tim Olyphant). It’s at this point that Matt decides that he doesn’t care about Danielle’s past, and he’s in love with her. He decides that he’ll do anything to get her back, including taking on Kelly, the porn industry, and some very weird people.

After some events, the plot strays away from just Matt and Danielle, and thickens to become a real movie, not just a teen movie. The movie does an excellent job of keeping us interested, because just as the plot becomes serious, Eli and Matt’s other friend, Klitz, add some very funny moments and ideas. Yes, the movie does sound like the classic Risky Business, but it does things that separate itself from that movie. The chemistry between Hirsch and Cuthbert is magical, and despite her gigantic sex appeal, the character of Danielle is so lovable for how sweet and caring she is to Matt. There are some great plot twists that keep you interested, not to mention hilarious in jokes and one liners, and not to mention a classic quote: “The juice was worth the squeeze”. You’ll understand. Tim Olyphant is great in a somewhat opposing role, and veteran actor James Remar makes a few appearances as a porn producing giant. The movie’s ending is so great and funny that you can’t help but enjoy, not to mention mysterious, keeping you hanging by a thread the whole way through.

Hey, everybody, let’s go streaking with Will Ferrell!

A rarity these days: a comedy with a decent number of laughs.

Luke Wilson, Will Ferrell, and Vince Vaughn are thirty-something guys with ordinary lives who decide to start their own fraternity so they can re-experience their college days. Of course, all they really want is a good time; although some of their group are genuine students, some have obviously been out of school for a LONG time!

Good and raunchy without being overtly outrageous, this comedy actually made me laugh. It really, really did. Although reminiscent of “National Lampoon’s Animal House” to a degree, it doesn’t feel like a ripoff but a pleasant homage. High marks for the amiable comic cast, especially the always funny Will Ferrell.

A good sophomore effort for Todd Phillips, whose first fiction film was “Road Trip.” One of the stars of that film, Seann William “Stifler” Scott, has a cameo here. And late night talk show host Craig Kilborn is very appropriately cast as a smug, smarmy womanizer.

Better than other comedies I’ve seen lately. I gave it seven out of ten.

The shawshank Redemption

shawshank

The best story ever told on film,(A must see movie classic)

I believe that this film is the best story ever told on film, and I’m about to tell you why.

Tim Robbins plays Andy Dufresne, a city banker, wrongfully convicted of murdering his wife and her lover. He is sent to Shawshank Prison in 1947 and receives a double life sentence for the crime. Andy forms an unlikely friendship with “Red” (Morgan Freeman), the man who knows how to get things. Andy faces many trials in prison, but forms an alliance with the wardens because he is able to use his banking experience to help the corrupt officials amass personal fortunes. The story unfolds….

I was so impressed with how every single subplot was given a great deal of respect and attention from the director. The acting was world-class. I have never seen Tim Robbins act as well since, Morgan Freeman maybe (e.g. Seven). The twists were unexpected, an although this film had a familiar feel, it wasn’t even slightly pretentious or cliched, it was original. The cinematography was grand and expressive. It gave a real impression of the sheer magnitude of this daunting prison.

But the one thing which makes THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION stand above all other films, is the attention given to the story. The film depends on the story and the way in which it unravels. It’s a powerful, poignant, thought-provoking, challenging film like no other. If Andy were to comment on this film, I think he might say: “Get busy watching, or get busy dying.” Take his advice.
