SECRET SERVICE.. Oh Really!!!

April 9, 2008

Last night I was watching Vantage point.. (With no regards to the fact that I had an exam in 14 hrs.. for which I hadn’t started studying)

Seemed like a good movie.. Interesting plot.. good Production values Etc Etc..

Forest Whitaker ( The african american actor with the lazy eye, hangs around throughout the movie like a stupid retarded kid with a sony HDV camera [ Surely Sony must have paid Shitloads] I mean.. there he is.. breathing hard like he’s having an orgasm.. by just looking at the buildings through his camera ).

Dennis Quaid ( Looks like an old man [ Which he is], who also incidentally is breathing hard throughout the movie and acts as if the president is his son, and he MUST protect him at all costs) gives all acting capabilities real doubts..

And the movie is of course this cool concept of seven view points to the same set of events..

And the whole bit about america and president using a double (As If) and then the real president getting abducted.

And of course the new Hollywood Fad of Using a HOT-Female-Terrorist with an anccent (Whats with that anyway)

Now finally getting to the title ( I am sorry.. I know)

I am sitting and giving an exam and actually not writing and thinking of a review of Vantage Point.

I think of this scene where Dennis Quaid flashes his Secret Service Badge & gun at this Spaniard who obviously I am sure does not give a fuck about him or his services.. no matter how secretive they might be..

I mean.. IF YOU ARE THE SECRET SERVICE.. why even have a badge that proves that you are with em’.. just say it’s a secret right..

Funny thing people do..

My question is.. Is the service a secret or the services which they might provide..

Either ways.. just keep it a secret..

When you are an unknown guy walking in a suit, right next to the president with an earpiece.. Its a DEAD Giveaway that you work for the NOT SO SECRET SERVICE.

Stewie for Governor!! Ssshh.. It’s a secret…

RACE – To the exit..

March 24, 2008

There are movies with the right amount of twists & Turns.. and then there are movies which have one FATEFUL twist in the plot

AND THEN..

There are movies like ‘RACE’ which are like the mazes at amusement park.

The movie seemed like a Great but Unsuccessful attempt at a big banner murder mystery thriller.. The first 30 mins are ok.. even good.. good production qualities and some great shots.

But after 30 mins, it’s all downhill.. and by the end it started reminding me of Saas-Bahu ‘K’ Serials where people keep coming back from the dead.. and eveyone seems to be having a relationship with everyone else..

Another question which comes to my mind is.. What the hell was that Reddy chick doin in the movie.. I mean Anil Kapoor himself seemed like excess baggage and add to that the reddy chick (I am sorry I don’t know her first name.. too much confusion.. too many sisters)

Which police department would employ such worthless buffoons.. What the hell.. Why did south africa agree to such buffoonery at their expense..

All in all this movie was an utter waste of money and time.. The last time I felt this cheated was when I went for ‘No Smoking’.. but at least that movie had some artistry.

This movie seemed like an ad for Provogue and BMW. (Both of which are very good)

and to top it all.. all this happened for 200 million (what currency is not clear).. I mean a website is worth more.. even a blog ( Hint Hint)..

Stewie for Governor.. and rebirth of Censorship for quality
