My Star Wars Journey

My Star Wars Journey My family always enjoyed a good movie or two and as a kid, I simply loved going to the cinemas with them. I used to love the ambiance, the excitement, the smell of popcorn and the mandatory soda/chips which we used to get during intermission, they were the best memories! read more...read more...

Dim lit skies, snow covered lanes, warm home-made cakes, hot chocolate and brightly decorated Christmas tree….Christmas is truly a unique time where you cant help but give in to the whole festivity and the special feeling spread in the air.

My Take on Channel 4’s “The Family”

It was last year that channel 4 started this unique documentary where they request one family to be filmed 24/7 by placing various cameras throughout the house. I was casually browsing through the tele and stumbled upon this gem by chance. I was completely hooked onto it, and did go back and watch all the earlier episodes read more...read more...

Revisiting Swades – We the people!

Being an NRI, I quite strongly relate my feelings with this flick. For me, this is Indian cinema at its best. I do agree that there are couple of over-hyped sequences (like generating electricity) and a bit of drama, but again, considering it with the story-line, they don’t seem to bother too much. I did read many negative reviews about this film, especially on Indiafm and couldn’t understand how they could give over 4 star ratings for films like Karzzz(???!!!) and shot this one down. read more...read more...

The film I saw Last Night – Watchmen (2009)

Initially, when I got to see this flick in the Cinema, I instantly knew that this one was a classic and has to be added to my DVD collection. After a lengthy wait the DVD is out now and it was a great experience revisiting the Watchmen, also catching the minute details missed during the first time. Added to that, I recently finished reading the graphic novel ….so was looking forward to see the film once again! read more...read more...

The film I saw Last Night - The Pianist (2002)

Released in 2002, I could just wonder how I missed this great epic until now.  Directed by Roman Polanski, The Pianist is a story, an emotional journey through the eyes of a Polish Jew, Wladyslaw Szpilman (Adrien Brody) and his account of survival during World War II. read more...read more...
