Movies I watched – January 2008

Disclaimer: This is not a movie review or anything of that sort. I just wanted to write something about some of the movies I watched during this month. If you are interested about these movies, just check on Wikipedia or IMDB or just Google. 🙂

  1. The Illusionist (2006)
    Watched on: 03/01/2008 – Xvid/DvDrip
    IMDBWikipedia
    Genre: Mystery / Romance / Thriller
    MPAA: Rated PG-13 for some sexuality and violence.

    Comments: A really nice one, though I was thinking it would be a boring one, it ended up very entertaining and exciting and it is just a great illusion.

  2. A Mighty Heart (2007)
    Watched on: 04/01/2008 – Xvid/DvDrip
    IMDBWikipedia

    Comments: It was an event that shocked the world. This is the story you haven’t heard. Living in a country where a journalists are killed often, and I have a good understanding of similar situations. This story being a real one, it is told in a way that is not a formal documentary, but a movie that documents all the event that happened.

  12. By 2 (Iruvar Mattum)

    Comments: They have tried something new/different with those two characters, but not a very significant effort.

  13. Before Sunset (2004)
    Watched on: 27/01/2008 – Xvid/DvDrip
    IMDBWikipedia
    Genre: Drama / Romance

    Comments: Just like Before Sunrise (1995), but this is of the same two people, more matured and aged meeting after ten years. Its all about how we change with age in life, and how our thought and ideologies might or might not change. Overall, this was a brilliant film.

I think this is the only blog post I’m posting regularly in my blog. But that doesn’t mean I’m a big fan of movies, but I just happen to watch and appreciate any movies that I get to watch if it is good. So just follow the links of those movies and if you are interested, just grab a copy somewhere and watch. If you are some where near me, I might me able to lend you a copy, but don’t take my words too serious. have fun…!
