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

Hitman : That is exactly what you will do

January 18, 2008

Bald Barcode ManMy god it was an awful movie. The game, though I have never played seems to be (or have been) pretty popular. The movie was just godawful.

The basic plot (which seemed like a few murders and a couple of explosions) is clearly not much to talk about. This one guy has been balded since birth and given a barcode on his head. I wonder if it will work at a supermarket. He is this super trained, cool customer macho bugger. He is being chased by this interpol officer with a very odd accent ( very neither here nor there). And like most amazing hollywood action flicks ends up in RUSSIA.

A couple of murders and chases later he is fighting a few more of his own kind (Read bald with a barcode) with freaking Kitanas. Why in the good world would four bald guys with barcodes on their heads will wear three piece suits and fight with kitanas. (I had a pirated copy and some women in the theatre started laughing real loud in this scene). Man that was a funny moment.

And then the hero hitman (Who is hardly different from a mannequinn in a suit shop) meets this.. .. Wait for It…. ‘Russian Chick’. He is initially trying ti kill her but realises that she is this cool key to a lot of secrets. Now he is her sole protector in the whole wide world.

Well, after a few more murders and explosions later the movie comes to an end with a brief entry by a CIA operative team.. At this moment, you feel like saying, “Who the fuck does he work for? Why does he do whathe does? When does he shave his head and of course Does the barcode work at a supermarket?

And after a few more such niggling questions and enduring the sheer trauma of some BAD BAD BAD acting I went to sleep.

Sleep is so much better that the slow death that was.. Hitman.

Hanckneyed or Stilted.. You take your Pick

October 16, 2007

When I sit down to make a new entry.. or for that matter, when I see some other posts in most of the blogs… I wonder how similar writings are.

Most of us are just expressing our mood.. about the day.. someone special or not so.. maybe something which someone said or something we saw..

Introspection sets the general mood.. Hunour invariably is peppered with satire.. there is a feeling of “I am right when I say this”

We write a few lines and wonder.. speechek.. Chek for grammar.. Look around.. maybe take a stroll in the house.. wonder whats in the fridge..   Except tomorrow to bring something better into our lives..

And then there are those who have a blog to ‘show’  the world that they also have a blog… “Hey, you know how many hits I got today? I did this to the blog and I did that..

There is the occasional Cut-Copy-Paste posts..

A few discuss politics and the future of the world in general..

Still a few attempt a smear campaign on the rest of the world ..

And I sit here in introspection… And conclude that..

I am all of the above..

Blogging is good..

Stewie for Governor!!! By now you should be saying this too….
