Pacific Rim made feel 10 again!

Absolute rush of a movie. Formulaic, with gaping plot holes, but likeable characters and badass action made it a lot of fun! Hopefully will find time for a review.

Some fun

I dislike Creed - With Arms Wide Open is one of my least favourite songs. Sets my teeth on edge everytime. But this parody version by Dave Grohl is hilarious! Miss the Foo Fighters.

I'd forgotten just how good it feels to get soaking wet in the rain. Incredible!

Controversy can be good...

... at times! If this whole Jaipur issue prompts a few people to actually pick up a Rushdie and read, it would be well worth the newsprint. I'd recommend Midnight's Children, and Haroun and the Sea of Stories.

I really like the video for this song, so anti-Bollywood.

I want to see this!

A Dinsey adaptation, so its likely to be watered down, but the trailer looks pretty good.

In twos

Music. After a looooong time. Feels so good!

Muderous rage - couldn't resist posting this!

A bit embarrassing, but mindless fun nonetheless!

PS: Chances are that the protagonist is a 'soup boy' in the movie and the rich, convent educated heroine inevitably falls for him, which would explain the song! In real life, such a scenario would indeed inspire kolaveri!! Tamil movies haven't changed at all.

UPDATE - My brother says 'soup boy' is Chennai slang for a jilted lover.

About time!

I was quite pleased to hear Ministry of External Affairs suggest that a repeat of the Kalam incident will invite retaliatory actions from India. I just hope that India actually does that and its not just posturing. Is an apology enough, though? Apparently, this happened over a month ago, but lets ignore why this is happening with such a time lag, and just be happy that the Indian foreign affairs machine for once grew a spine!

Maybe I need to shut this blog down

Opened blogger today thinking I'd review the first Tamil movie I've seen in ages - 7am arivu. But the words just wont come. I just dont seem to have it in me anymore.
