snappy guide to movies in 2009

Bride Wars

Starring Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway, Bride Wars is a romantic comedy. The film is based on two best friends who plan their wedding on the same day which results in, what we all love to see on screen, chaos. A perfect date movie, you could also enjoy this with friends and especially your girl friends.

He’s Just Not That Into You

News has it that Jennfier Aniston agreed to present the Oscars this year only to promote this film of hers. The film also stars Ben Affleck and is a dating scene romantic comedy. Apart from these two the film boasts of having Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Connelly, Justin Long, Kevin Connolly and Scarlett Johannsson as the star cast of the film. Definitely something worth looking out for. A fun filled movie.

Watchmen

Watchmen is finally coming to theaters this March. The film is about a group of superheros. I personally won’t mind another superhero movie. It is believed that it took them 22 years to get this movie on the big screen. Whoa! I hope they don’t delay it any further.

Race to Witch Mountain

Dwayne Johnson is back, again, with an updated version of a Disney’s classic. The film boasts of some really fine special effects. Also starring AnnaSophia Robb and Carla Gugino, the film is expected to be released later during March. I personally don’t like ‘The Rock’ anymore but I won’t mind this movie!

Duplicity

Clive Owen and Julia Roberts team up for this thriller. Duplicity stars the Closer co-stars donning the roles of an ex-CIA agent (Julia Roberts) and a former MI6 operative (Clive Owen). The film’s tagline ‘Outwit. Outspy. Outsmart. Outplay. Then get out.’ is quite catchy and so is the plot. A film worth looking out for especially for all Julia Roberts fans.

Movie Review: Seven Pounds

seven pounds movie review

Will Smith does it again! After watching The Pursuit of Happyness I became a Gabriele Muccino fan. Muccino has impressed me once again with Seven Pounds. Brilliant screenplay, amazing performances and one awesome movie. Will Smith is right on top. I have tears in my eyes right now. I don’t think I need to describe any further. Go see the movie!

Movie Review: Slumdog Millionaire

slumdog millionaire review in india download watch onlineThey say great movies are hard to find these days. They are absolutely correct. But once in a while comes a movie that takes your breath away. Slumdog Millionaire is one such movie. Slumdog Millionaire has been directed by Danny Boyle. I had seen only one movie directed by Danny, The Beach, and I loved it! Slumdog Millionaire is a totally different movie from the usual Danny Boyle stuff in the past. In fact Slumdog Millionaire is very different from any of the movies I have seen in the recent past. The superb soundtrack for the movie has been composed by A.R Rahman. The movie is based on a novel by an Indian diplomat Vikas Swarup titled ‘Q&A’.

Coming back to the film Slumdog Millionaire highly impressive. The entire cast has given brilliant performances for the film. Anil Kapoor, Dev Patel, Freida Pinto, Irrfan Khan, Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail, Ayush Mahesh Khedekar, Mahesh Manjrekar are all outstanding. There’s this spark in this 120 minute long flick that you don’t even want to miss a blink. The film has been shot superbly in Mumbai, Maharashtra.

Preview: Kismat Konnection & The Dark Knight

Kismat Konnection

kismat konnection movie preview songs promos trailerKismat Konnection is Aziz Mirza’s comeback movie after Chalte Chalte (2003). Aziz might have skipped some English lectures during school. Or he seems to have been bit by the ‘K’ bug in Bollywood. But seriously dude you already have a ‘K’ in Kismat then why make this blunder. If I had to give one reason to anyone for not watching this flick it would be the ‘K’ in Konnection. OK enough! The movie stars Shahid Kapur and Vidya Aunty Balan in lead roles. The film is being released under the Tips films banner. The film also stars Juhi Chawal and Om Puri. There are no reasons good enough to make anyone spend the multiplex moolah over these idiots but since this is the only major Bollywood flick releasing this week, people are gonna watch it! Include me too but since the cheaper shows are all sold out, I’ll wait until seats are available for the cheap morning shows.

The Dark Knight

The Dark knight movie preview promo stills review Batman isn’t my favourite superhero. In fact I hate Batman. What a freak! The Dark Knight is co-written and directed by Christopher Nolan. Christian Bale is playing the lead role. This movie is a much safer bet than Kismat Konnection. At least it would be better to watch a stupid superhero in some action than watching Shahid and Vidya Aunty Balan run around trees making a fool out of everyone. I have already booked two tickets online for this Saturday! The films opens tomorrow i.e 18th July in US as well. The movie is about 152 minutes long and full of action. I hope this one lives up to the expectations. It is supposed to be a sequel to the movie Batman Begins. Let’s hope I come up satisfied!

PS: Don’t ask me why I hate Batman so much. And also, Batman is gay. Yes I think Batman is gay!
