Watched: Flash of Genius (2008) starring Greg Kinnear

Based on the true story

Drama based on a true story in the mid nineties. The original passionate inventor of intermittent windscreen wiper for automobiles takes on the Detroit automobile giant Ford Motors after they used his idea without his consent and credit. He eventually starts a long legal battel with all the major automobile companies which ends his relationship and his normal life as a citizen. But he does not give up and fights the long and complicated legal battle all by himself for pride and credit for his hard work.
A very inspiring storyline and a great drama based on true story. It’s a slow drama movie so the viewers will have to be patient. It is a fight between mediocre citizen and rich, powerful corporations where name and pride takes over any monetary reward - a good confidence boost for us normal citizens.

Treasure has its price

Action. An honest and genuine couple in the Caribbean discovers treasure on the sea bed which concurrently leads them in finding the illicit cargo of a sunken ship. Along with another greedy couple they find themselves in deep trouble with the local mafia.
It’s one of those movies which will make you feel like going on holidays to somewhere warm close to the beach. You definitely have to watch it in blue ray as there are some great under water shots with underwater life, clear blue water and diving. The way everything worked out for the good side was a bit impractical, but it’s a movie at the end of the day. First bit of the movie is good time consuming and too flashy before the main part of the movie kicks in.

Watched: Match Point (2005) starring Scarlett Johansson.

Passion | Temptation | Obsession

Drama. A former pro tennis player gets the opportunity of a life time for money, good paying job, rich family, high class society and lifestyle and a good beautiful wife. But he falls for another woman while he is happily married and risks his good fortune for that sexual temptation which soon becomes obsession.
It’s a good drama with gorgeous Scarlett Johansson in it, more reasons to watch! The viewers will sort of anticipate what happens towards the end but it’s not what it seems like… and that makes the movie a little bit different. I thought the main male actor was a bit too cold or stale. He didn’t have much emotion playing on his face, could be a better actor doing his role.

Watched: Freddy vs Jason (2003) with Kelly Rowland.
Horror. Freddy Kruhger and Jason Voorhees from two different horror sequels unites in one movie, but do they actually unite as a team? The two scary characters return to terrorize the teenage population, and they are after each other too which is more interesting.
I love a crossover of two franchise villains in a single movie… who is better? Who is stronger? Who is meaner? There are too many questions! I’ve never personally seen any Friday the 13th or Nightmare on Elm Street but was familiar with the characters and that was enough to interest me. It was more of an action than horror to me, maybe because I don’t get scared easily nor I’m a teenager. The make of the movie could be a little less cheap. It’s a good flick with warm popcorn on Friday night.

Watched: Hell Ride (2008) with Dennis Hopper and Vinnie Jones.

The rebellion against all there is

Action. The story deals with the rivalry between two bikie gangs Victors and Six Six Sixers. Pistolero, leader of the Victors along with the Gent and Comanche deals with an unfinished business from long ago.
The movie is full of old school action and sexual contents. Anybody who likes western action movie will love it. It’s a typical (in a good way) Tarantino movie… a bit weird! The action, bikes, intense scenes, the girls, rugged desert country lifestyle is pretty good in the movie. But they didn’t show what was in the box, which was unfulfilling. The ending in general was a bit unfulfilling.

Watched: Gone In 60 Seconds (2000) starring Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie
An action remake of the 1974 movie with the same name. A retired master car thief who swore to make a decent life out of honest living faces a hard situation where he has to come back to the industry and steal 50 cars with his crew in one night to save his brother’s life.
A Great must see action packed car movie. Nicolas Cage at his best and younger Angelina Jolie at her early famous prime along with a few others acting nicely makes this movie my all time favorite. The cars in the movie are great with skilled action driving stunts. The final act with a 1967 Shelby Mustang muscle car is just the cherry on top of a beautiful cake. I would say this movie is the inspiration of Fast and Furious and all other car movies that came along later on.

Watched: How to Lose Friends and Alienate People (2008) starring Kristen Dunst and Simon Pegg with Megan Fox

He’s across the pond and out of his depth

Romantic comedy based on Toby Young’s memoir “How to Lose Friends & Alienate People”. A not so popular British writer gets a chance to move to New York and work at a high-profile magazine. He struggles to fit in and becomes a very awkward personality among the classy and famous. He finds a good hearted charming girl among the others and eventually realizes she is the one.
It’s a good romantic comedy. The ever hot Megan Fox is in the movie before she gets famous in The Transformers. Kristen Dunst is as cute as hell as usual. The movie has good humor, but I thought the British awkard funny personality was a bit too out of normal world and a bit of pressurized humor. Overall, it’s a good movie with good humor and satisfying ending.

The last man on Earth is not alone

There are still very few healhty human beings hiding and living waiting for rescue. Neville (Will Smith), a sole survivor in New York City looks for answers by day and hides from the Darkseekers by night struggles valiantly to find a cure and redeem the death of his family.
Will Smith is by himself only with his pet German Shephard Sam. Sam (Samantha) stole every doglover viewers heart by acting really well in the movie alongside Will. Flash backs are viewed throughout the movie to help us viewers understand the story. It is a well made action packed movie with good storyline, based on the novel. The movie has sad ending though.
