Cinema - April




Saw II

Just going through the motions here. I knew the twist beforehand in this edition. Not as gripping as the first edition as a result.

Red Road

One of those slow paced yet absorbing movies. This one is from Scotland and is set in Glasgow. They hardly seem to get any sun in that part of the world. At times the narrative appears to be extraordinarily slow. The end justifies the means though.

Singh is King

To me, Hindi comedy movies, of late, feel like slap stick stage plays except that the stage is some foreign locale. The supporting cast appear to be more at ease than the lead ones here.

Netflix online

Crimen perfecto

Or is it ferpecto? The English title for this Spanish film is ‘A Perfect Crime’. A comedy very similar to Ugly Betty in the story line except that Betty is a self-centered evil person here. Like many movies, this has a promising start but meanders away.


The famous chase scene did not disappoint. I was afraid that time would have spoiled it for me. They should have more movie car chases set in San Francisco.



A good heist movie is a joy forever. Usually a heist is a team effort with each member bringing in specific skill sets. Not so here. Loved the twist in the actual heist. So did Wifey.

Sex, Lies and Videotape

This was a big let down. Steven Soderbergh’s debut movie was hailed as a psychological masterpiece by so many. It seemed pointless banter to me.

You don’t mess with the Zohan

Putting the low in Low brow comedy. Sandler’s game plan seems to be to have one or two of these alternating with an attempt at a serious movie, in fact tragedies. Looking forward to his ‘Funny People’ which will be the perfect blend of comedy and tragedy in my opinion.

Yes Man

The perfect antidote for Friday fatigue. Brings back the joy of Ace Venture and Liar Liar. Not a bad movie.
