MY REVIEW
It is interesting business movie. They could hold the climax till the end.This movie is about how the world has forever changed and how you are pretty much fucked. That is astonishingly epic if you ask me. Honestly I too lot of time to even understand why the company become bankrupt.

Dead Man Walking(1995)


Sister Helen Prejean (Susan Sarandon) is a nun and teacher living in rural Louisiana. One day, she receives a letter from Matthew Poncelet (Sean Penn), who is scheduled to be executed soon for the rape and murder of two teenagers. After meeting Matthew, Sister Helen agrees to serve as spiritual counselor and see what she can do to stay the execution. However, Matthew’s claims of innocence seem shaky at best, and it’s clear he’s a reprehensible, amoral racist

MY REVIEW

This movie is one of the best I have seen!! But he had a very powerful ending. I was in tears after he confessed. This movie requires a lot of empathy for both the killer and his victim’s families to be truly appreciated. If you see life in black and white this is a good film to challenge how you look at the world. This is classic movie.Sean Penn is great. I am seeing all the old movies I missed in life. What a great actor Susan Sarandom is.

MY REVIEW
It is not the greatest of the movies I saw. I like the imagination but may not be this kind of dystopian imagination. Still you can see the movie onetime. It is being appreciated by the people. It is not of my type

Dystopian Science Fiction can be summed up as the opposite of Utopia—imperfect societies in the near-future.

MY REVIEW
It’s a great story. But it reveals the painful reality of time and reminds us to live our lives to the fullest, to embrace the love we see in the people around us, and to understand the world we live in and the oppressive system of time. Absolute creativity in the sory . Kudos to Kazuo Ishiguro. I have not read the book but not sure whether they should do justice to book. I think the scenes are well taken and it is sad but could understand well

As per me , Money is not evil but money is not everything. I see the way the people get motivated. Boiler Room is one of the best movie I have seen.

The Best of Me


“Everyone wanted to believe that endless love was possible. She’d believed in it once, too, back when she was eighteen.”

In the spring of 1984, high school students Amanda Collier and Dawson Cole fell deeply, irrevocably in love. Though they were from opposite sides of the tracks, their love for one another seemed to defy the realities of life in the small town of Oriental, North Carolina. But as the summer of their senior year came to a close, unforeseen events would tear the young couple apart, setting them on radically divergent paths.

Now, twenty-five years later, Amanda and Dawson are summoned back to Oriental for the funeral of Tuck Hostetler, the mentor who once gave shelter to their high school romance. Neither has lived the life they imagined . . . and neither can forget the passionate first love that forever changed their lives. As Amanda and Dawson carry out the instructions Tuck left behind for them, they realize that everything they thought they knew—about Tuck, about themselves, and about the dreams they held dear—was not as it seemed. Forced to confront painful memories, the two former lovers will discover undeniable truths about the choices they have made. And in the course of a single, searing weekend, they will ask of the living, and the dead: Can love truly rewrite the past?

MY REVIEW
This is typical chick flick which we can enjoy. I am not against chick flick. The romantic scenes are well carved out. After seeing this, we want to fall in love again. It look like a regional language movie(Malayalam is my language). Anyway it is enjoyable

MY REVIEW

I love the movie. It is romantic entertainer. Lot of not realistic acting in the movie which I don’t care. I like the way movie is structured. I don’t enjoy the ending that much. I don’t want will to die. You can’t change who people are.” “And what can you do?” “You love them.”. This is amazing sentence. Assisted suicide is such a sensitive topic, I think this movie does a fantastic job in telling the story. I am glad it is not another melodramatic happily ever after but something that could be real

MY REVIEW

Sometime it is boring but really leaned about. I learned more about the real coldwar during that time. Why was USSR (Russia) too advanced in space research. They were at least two notch ahead that rest of the crowd .Sometimes, it is interesting too. Parents can encourage kids to watch that. I generally like Jake Gyllenhaal.
