Into the Wild (2007)

Nice movie, well-crafted showing that ….Happiness only real when shared ….. This goes into list of my favorites.

At a Glance
Sean Penn directs this drama based the best-selling true account of a young man who gives up everything — including his trust fund and ties to a seemingly stable family — to lead a solitary life in the wild. Eschewing convention to trek across Alaska’s harsh and often unforgiving terrain, Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) resolves to live off the land. But along the way, he encounters emotional obstacles and unexpected hardship.


There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; There is a rapture on the lonely shore; There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more ..

You don’t need human relationships to be happy, God has placed it all around us.

And the best quote … “Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth”

The Lake House (2006)

..there could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison, no countenances so beloved…

The title is taken from a line in Jane Austen’s Persuasion, which features heavily in the film, as the character of Kate quotes above line, I adore Jane Austen and felt the line is so beautiful.

It’s one time watch movie. It says loudly to guys that girls can knock anyone down in just 10 days. At the same time it also says that girls guys can knock you down anytime … lol …

Armageddon (1998)

It’s Closer Than You Think. For Love. For Honor. For Mankind. Take the Ride of Your Life!

As a massive asteroid hurtles toward Earth, NASA head honcho Dan Truman (Billy Bob Thornton) hatches a plan to split the deadly rock in two before it annihilates the entire planet, calling on Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis) — the world’s finest oil driller — to head up the mission. With time rapidly running out, Stamper assembles a crack team and blasts off into space to attempt the treacherous task.

My Review
Movie is fast paced and is a true entertainer. Its just fun to watch. You can just relax and have fun with it its great. Don’t try to verify the physics of space and of asteroids, just enjoy the movie.

Last few moments when Harry(Bruce) gives his life for A.J(Bruce daughter’s Fiancé) in a very touching moment the story comes together and sets it right. The movie ends with a mature moment and a mankind lesson.


Cast Away (2000)

At the edge of the world, Tom Hanks journey begins

The movie was outstanding the whole time. I felt awestruck on how difficult it can be to survive on earth without anyone around. At the same time it also draws us attention on how strong are human beings, they can adapt and make living out of anything.

I say that every element of the film was perfect. The Wilson part was good – a partner is what we need all the time, it doesn’t matter whether its living or non living!

Where do you start, When you have to start over ?

Die Hard 2 (1990)

Rating : 7/10

Genre : Action

Watchable entertaining movie that is worth your time. nJoy Bruce Willis, but the irony is that he is one man who tries to save his wife once more from certain death.

Taglines ….

The Shawshank Redemption (1994)

The best movies are ones that touch the soul. It takes a movie like The Shawshank Redemption to touch the soul. No action, no special effects – just men in prison uniforms talking to each other.

Hope is a good thing and good things never die! Get Busy Living or Get Busy dying

Memorable Quotes
Wizard: You know what music is? God’s little reminder that there’s something else besides us in this universe, a harmonic connection between all living beings, every where, even the stars.

August Rush :The music is all around you, all you have to do is listen.

Louis Connelly: [Louis explaining not giving up music to August] You never quit on your music. No matter what happens. Cuz anytime something bad happens to you, that’s the one place you can escape to and just let it go. I learned it the hard way. And anyway, look at me. Nothing bad’s gonna happen. You gotta have a little faith.

August Rush: [opening voice-over] Listen. Can you hear it? The music. I can hear it everywhere. In the wind… in the air… in the light. It’s all around us. All you have to do is open yourself up. All you have to do… is listen.

An old man in a nursing home reads a story to an old woman each day. The story he reads follows two young lovers named Allie Hamilton and Noah Calhoun. They met one evening at a carnival many years ago. Allie’s parents separate Noah and Allie. They disapprove of Noah’s lack of wealth, and move Allie away. After waiting for Noah to write her for several years, Allie meets and becomes engaged to a handsome young soldier named Lon. In a local newspaper, Noah’s picture catches Allie’s eye. He is standing in front of a fully restored, 200 year old home. The article is filled with praise for his accomplishments. Allie’s heart nearly bursts. The last time she saw this house it was a rotted decaying shamble. She stood enfolded in Noah’s arms in the great entryway and listened to his plans to buy and restore this house. Just the way she wanted it. With her love for Noah still alive, the picture pulls at her heart. She has to go back, see if Noah is okay, and tell him about her marriage. They both think the echo deep in their hearts, the one that has lasted all these years, is not shared by the other. The cry they could not stifle. It wasn’t over for me. Written by Dontee

Why you must watch The Dark Knight

Carrying the biggest buzz for any film this year, the dark, brooding The Dark Knight, which has an awesome, legend-creating performance by the late Heath Ledger, will light up more than 3,500 theatres in America and Canada [Images], starting Thursday evening. The demand for the tickets is so high that many theatres have added a 6 am show. The film, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Christian Bale, could gross over $100 million by Sunday evening.

It could also become one of the few films this year to have a repeat viewing audience. I would be among them. Having caught the film at a media screening, I am hoping to see at the 6 am show. The thrill of watching it with the audiences is one reason for the repeat visit. And then, I also hope that some of the plot twists that left me confused will become clearer. I also hope I will be able to savour the performances and the complexities of the film’s character, as the car chases, mid-air explosions and gut-churning violence will impact me less on the second viewing.
