The Illusionist

I just saw this movie and couldn't help blogging about it. It is one hell of a movie! Absolutely enticing keeps you spellbound. For those who saw 'The Prestige' and liked it as well, watch this one. It sure is 10 times better than 'The Prestige'!

Pan's labyrinth

Saw this much talked about movie. Well to begin with it is definitely over hyped. The movie has bagged several best picture awards and nominations (recently BAFTA), but it not worth the hoopla it created. However, it is a good movie no doubt about that. The little girl is perfect to play the poised princess. The director has very well intertwined magical interludes with a stark war backdrop. The performers have done justice to their roles. The cinematography is also superb and the movie deservedly got an oscar nomination for it. Watch it minus the hype that you've heard and perhaps you'll enjoy it!

Flags of our fathers

This movie is about the American side of the story in WW-II. It is an amazing movie. The movie tries to bring forth the point that superheroes are nothing but normal people with normal desires and wants.
Gives me yet another reason to love Client Eastwood!
I am dying to watch 'Letters from Iwo Jima' again by the same director and which is the Japanese version of the battle. (I have downloaded the Japanese movie and will watch it with subtitles :D) This one has got more Oscar nominations than the Flags..
