Unlimited DVDs

July 19, 2007

Unlimited DVDs at just 17 bucks a month. Well this is how it works with netflix . At any time I can order 3 movies and then I mail them back one, they send me one in the queue the next day! I just love the brilliant idea that netflix has come up with. This seems to remind me of the magazine thing that they have in or desi apartments in India. Finally, they are catching upp here 😉

I got my subscription started yesterday and Full Metal Alchemist ,Rocky Balboa, Casino Royale, all movies that I have seen, are on the way. I love the movie recommendations that they give. I ended up recommending 132 movies so that they could finally fine tune what I love and now they are recommending the best stuff – 300, Departed, Animatrix, Godfather, GoodFellas.. Just cant wait to watch atleast 50 movies before summer!

P.S : I just watched Hyd Blues 1 & 2 back to back and its darn gud! I can sooo relate to hb1 !!! Kyaa potti hai bhai !

Reminder: Buy Facebook stocks when they go public.

Spiderman 3 – Review

May 6, 2007

[How long can any man fight the darkness… before he finds it in himself?]

The tag line says it all. Spiderman is all happy and leads a perfect life, a life watching the stars with Mary Jane, topping the class and so on. Then, enter Topher Grace, {You might rmr the cute next-door boy in Thats 70s Show who gets picked on and bullyed by everyone}. He ends up spoiling the balance that spidy had struck. Now, enter Venom, New Goblin and Sandman, we have a movie which has more villians. much more than we can chew.

All in all, Spiderman 3 is a decent movie, a little different from the previous two. A bad ass superhero, subtle one-liners, James Franco and Topher Grace end up as the saving grace. Kristen Dunst is as usual there just for the beauty part, more or less for the run-of-the-mill romantic moments with Topher?? [:D] Naah 😉 Who cares, she kinda is the Jackie of Thats 70s Show .. The CG part especially the Sandman part is decent, while the rest of the CG is too much clutter with too many things happening at the same time. The story-line goes haywire in the middle, with Venom’s introduction and powers not described clearly, probably due to lack of time. One of the perils of having too many villains, resulting in improper character establishment.

However, given the craze and the 300 million $ that has been spent on the movie and the fact that in Santa Cruz Regal, it had 11 shows on the first day, I’m pretty sure that Sony would earn back what they invested. However, its not like everyone can pull a Terminator, both ways. Dont over-expect .. Just go there for some fun !!!
