Movie – In to Wild

Eddie Vedder – Guaranteed

On bended knee is no way to be free

Lifting up an empty cup, I ask silently

All my destinations will accept the one that’s me

So I can breathe…

Circles they grow and they swallow people whole

Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they’ll never know

A mind full of questions, and a teacher in my soul

And so it goes…

Don’t come closer or I’ll have to go

Holding me like gravity are places that pull

If ever there was someone to keep me at home

It would be you…

Everyone I come across, in cages they bought

They think of me and my wandering, but I’m never what they thought

I’ve got my indignation, but I’m pure in all my thoughts

I’m alive…

Wind in my hair, I feel part of everywhere

Underneath my being is a road that disappeared

Late at night I hear the trees, they’re singing with the dead

Overhead…

Leave it to me as I find a way to be

Consider me a satellite, forever orbiting

I knew all the rules, but the rules did not know me

Ice Age 3 – Dawn of the Dinosaurs [Review]

I knew this would be a great movie. So this is biased. Am anyway a fan of the series and its ice age, Sid, Manny, Diego. All the ingredients to make an awesome movie.

And yes, the movie kicks ass right from the word go. Not sure where do i start cause its that great.

Well we had gone to watch this 3D but it was houseful so had to watch it in 2D and the loss of one dimension did not dim anything. Yes its a children’s movie but who cares. It is fun.

Sid the Sloth steals the show really from the word go. Am sure if they make a series on Sid, it would be a best seller as well

Diego, Manny always dependable on the laughs with Diego provides some really butt kicking action sequences.

Hate to be a spoiler so you have to watch this on your own, its a stupendous movie just like the earlier series so just go catch it in 3D if you can.

New York!! New York!!

There are many reasons i do not go for a Hindi and i admit that some of them are just very flimsy, but they are my reasons and damm, right they are right in their own way.

Watched New York over the weekend, here is what i thought about it yes it is a little old and this is old but wtf it is my review

The Theatre : Cinemax – Wondermall Thane

No parking, alternative park on the road. No. Got it finally but not issues, no regrets as well.

The Movie Hall – Screen 1

Pretty ok, no issues, there was a crowd, but it seemed ok. Got seats quite soon. So no complaints there as well.

The Movie

Started pretty well, i did not know the plot at all, did not see any reviews, hell i did not even know who all were acting in the movie etc etc.

Neil started off pretty well as a nice little homely nerd, going to an American college, New York State University. The speed looked ok till when i saw the watch and nothing seemed happening, Hai Junoon was playing about every 2 minutes and it started getting depressing as to the reason of making the movie.

Neil then drags thru the movie, a 10 second dialogue take 5 minutes, just like Gabriel Garcia Chapter, long long long, c’mon if you want me to watch a Hindi movie, this was not the movie to start again.

Funny part hereWhen FBI boss talks in English, there are sub titles, when John Abraham talks in English in a small part, there are subtitles, however when Neil and Katrina speak in English there are no subtitles. Found it little weird.

Then suddenly it was interval time. And we were still about 30 minutes in real time. Forget it was already 1.5 hrs in movie time.

Time for popcorn and a big line, and exorbitant prices. Who pays 40 bucks for a water bottle, Are they giving Evian Water? Samosas for 35 bucks, for 2 …like 17 friggin bucks for a samosa, fk.!!!!!!

Anyways post the interval the movie started in the climax scenes, it could have got over in another 45 minutes but the movie lasted another hour. Dialogues slowing down.

In the last scene, Neil takes about 5 minutes to tell the officer where the bomb is to be, ok if you are in a crises situation you would tell that first and now take precious time, but the movie has to last right.

Last scene, John does again a slow, mourning talk. Shit happens, snipers start shooting. The snipers are behind John but bullets hit him in the chest.

Katrina, is standing next to Neil and the officer, but not one of them moves a bit even though in the firing line, talk about confidence.

No information on how John is molded into a terrorist. Katrina says she already knows john is a terrorist, but how.

The kid looks more American than both of them, wonder why i must guess.

Overall the movie is watchable if you don’t bother much into the details and take it at pop corn value. Watch it, Shut it , forget it.

Watchable for one time only
