Green Zone [2010]

Genre: Drama, Action, Thriller

Rating: 8/10.

Compelling story about the US forces take on the Iraq situation. Paul Greengrass handles the story well by tapping into the conspiracy which devours us, and Matt Damon is good at his antics. If you liked The Hurt Locker, you should like this. Its somewhat similar along the same line.


TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away from Keyboard [2013]

Genre: Documentary

Rating: 8/10.

We download hundreds and hundreds of movies from torrents. Spare a thought for these guys who founded The Pirate Bay.. Hail Freedom of Internet.. A very well made documentary, but so many things could have been included to make it even better. But nonetheless, a political documentary dealing with the struggles of the TPB founders.

Movie Review: Lucia

Lucia [2013]

Genre: Drama, Romance, Sci-Fi

Rating: 8.5/10.

One of the more intellectual movies made in Kannada in recent years. Its inspired by Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and a little bit of Inception as well. The camerawork and music are truly excellent. Glad that all the wait did not end in disappointment. Don’t miss this one. Coz’ you never know when there will be another good movie in Sandalwood. For those of you who don’t know Kannada, there are subtitles as well.

Horrible Bosses [2011]

Genre: Drama, Comedy

Rating: 7/10.

Follows the lives of 3 friends who have trouble with their bosses. This leads to them conspiring to kill their respective bosses. Ensemble cast. Some good acting. And has its fair share of comedy. Decent movie.

Submarine [2010]

Genre: Drama

Rating: 7.5/10.

Great direction with not so much great characters. If you like watching unconventional movies that stray away from the usual path, then this one’s for you. Its beautifully shot and there’s some British jokes thrown in as well. Good watch.

The Lunchbox [2013]

Genre: Drama, Romance

Rating: 8/10.

Every now and then, there are some beautiful movies like this. But what can you expect when Irrfan Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui are in the lead roles, nothing but a great movie. Nimrat Kaur is superb as well. If you don’t like slow-paced movies, then this might not be for you. But watch it if you are a true movie lover. Its one of the best Indian movies of the year.

Before Midnight [2013]

Genre: Drama, Romance

Rating: 8.5/10.

I had been waiting for this movie for a longtime. Finally got the time to download and watch it. With Before Sunrise and Before Sunset being 2 of my favorite movies in this genre, I had great expectations for this one. And it surely didn’t disappoint. This movie takes a big U-turn from the previous 2 movies halfway, it gets quite hard-hitting and realistic. The movie is basically talk, talk and talk, and it still manages to enthrall me every time.
