Re: Watched any new movies? Any one see Eklayva? How was it...worth watching? Btw, just saw on Yahoo! that it was the No. 20 movie in USA...in terms of box office receipts...

Re: Watched any new movies? I liked Eklavya but it was a tad short The end was kind bland, but I guess cinema goers must be tired of seeing "filmi" finales, so for a change it was good

Re: Watched any new movies? Saw a bunch of old foreign movies this past weekend: Bang Rajan (Thai with english subtitles; story of how a thai village resisted invading burmese armies for 6 months in a brutual conflict to preserve their independence; awesome fight sequences) Sommersault (beautiful aussie movie about this young teenage girl who runs away from home and attempts to start a new life in a resort town and tried to find love at the same time) I Stand Alone (Gasper Nor's first movie and i will not recommend this to anyone who is meek hearted!)

Avoid like a plague - bland movie with large presentation. No story whatsoever and the ending to leave one baffled. Sorry cr@p movie. I wasted my ?15 quid on it. :mad:

Re: Watched any new movies? Saw Kingdom of Heaven the other day. Pretty decent movies that seems to have taken quite a bit of poetic license with actual facts on ground. Still makes for a nice viewing. More so for those who like to watch period movies with a war/battle background.

Ya it is about adapting to a new culture and still remain youself ... if you are living outside India YOU MUST watch it. will definitely relate to it. :wtg: Tell you what, me and My Egyptian Freind went to wach it last saturday and while we were entering the theater, this White Lady stopped and held my hand and said, "you will really like this movie, Awesome". I went inside, 70 % of junta was Non-desi and when the movie ended and the lights came on, I saw atleast 10 people around me wiping their tears. (Not saying all this to add SKC creadebility, but coz of the fact that a wider can relate to it) later on, even my egyptian friend confronted that he cried once during the movie and even He could relate to it.

Re: Watched any new movies? Watched Mystic River over the weekend. Probably about a couple of years old movie but I never got around to see it. Overall a nice movie with good acting by Sean Penn & Tim Robbins. Sean Penn is stellar as an angry father and Tim carries his role of an adult who has been hurt as a young child. No wonder they both won Oscars for the movie. Good watch.

Re: Watched any new movies? I saw The 300 yesterday and i must say, i have mixed feelings about the movie. Yes, it is supposed to be an 'all action, no sense' movie for the guys and chicks who dig big muscular guys bashing other guys around. But the overall tone of the movie was quite racist - basically, anyone who's black is the first guy to get whacked in the movie. Plus they potray Xerxes as some sort of messed up transverstite type guy. He is this huge guy( in context of the movie, over 7 feet tall) who has a zillion piercings all over his body including his face and painfully heavy looking gold chains hooked on to these piercings all over his body. Plus he is extremely effeminate ( very similar to the character of 'Ra' in the original Stargate movie). They potray the Persian Immortals as these beast-like mindless destroying animals in chains and the Persian empire to be overall a teeming pool of savage nations uniting against the only bastion of civilization. Which is actually quite far from the truth - the Achamenid dynasty was one of the most enlightened dynasties in the history of mankind. Plus its massively exgaggerated to highlight the bravery of the Greeks. But - the underlying history of the war is remarkably accurate - the actual happenings of the battle, manuevers, etc. are remarkably accurate. Overall, an interesting movie due to its highly Sci-Fi fiction-fantasy approach.

Re: Watched any new movies? Watched 300 over this weekend. The first half is gripping while the second half badly lets down. There was no need for this to be a 2hour movie, an hour 15 minutes should have done the job. The movie should be watched as a work of fiction with some historical backdrop. Good action sequences and some nice camera effects. I watched it in IMAX and the effects were magnified, specially the part of the Oracle( :hic: ). If you havent seen it yet and plan to see it watch it in an IMAX if you can. Overall 7 out of 10.
