The Great Movie Tag.

1. On your blog, provide a link to the Great Bong’s Page, May I Hebb Your Attention Pliss.

2. Then write down your top 10 Hindi movie lines or top 10 English movie lines (You can do both if you want. Only one set is required for the contest). If you cannot think of top 10, make it top 5. Cannot think of even 5? Make it top 3. No problem. Only restriction: no two lines from same movie. This done to make it fair for other movies so that they dont get swamped by Gunda or Loha or Sholay.

3. Tag five friends to do the same.

4. Come over to the comment-space of this post and post your blog’s link so I can go and read it.

Remember: Before starting the tag, paste points 1 and 4 on your blog so that the rules are available to anyone who wishes to pick the tag up from your blog.

Movies , Movies , Movies… my new years resolution was to watch as many as the top imdb movies that i simply can. plus in preparation for the 3 idiots-pot pourri, i ll have to brush up on movies, so simply put, this tag is quite an excellent way of getting me up from my blog slumber. Thanks Adi .

In no particular order.

5. Inglorious Basterds

The part in the theatre when Col. Hans Landa asks Bridget von Hammersmark for her escort’s introduction. and the continuing sequence where the italian-challenged trio try to reply to Landa.

Col. Hans Landa: So who are your three handsome escorts?
Bridget von Hammersmark: I’m afraid neither of the three speak a word of German. They’re friends of mine from Italy. This is the wonderful Italian stuntman, Enzo Gorlomi; a very talented cameraman, Antonio Margheriti; and Enzo’s camera assistant, Domonick DeCocco.
Bridget von Hammersmark: [in Italian] Gentlemen, this is an old friend, Colonel Hans Landa.
Lt. Aldo Raine: [southern accent] Bawn gorno.

To Kill A Mocking Bird: Movie Review

Another thing got added to my ‘Nitte To-do list‘ recently. To watch a Movie with the Faculty projected in an AC seminar hall. The movie in question was ‘To kill a Mocking Bird’ which s based on the Pulitzer award winning novel of the same name, written by Harper Lee.

The Movie filmed in 1962 starred Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch is a lawyer in a racially divided Alabama town in the 1930s. He agrees to defend a young black man who is accused of raping a white woman.

We are told the story from the viewpoint of “Scout”, the 6 year old tomboy child of Atticus. An adult Scout narrates the story to the audience. The Innocence of Scout is clearly visible through out. There’s also side stories about Boo Radley and the the Development of Atticus’ image in the eyes of the viewer (as well as his children) as the film progresses.

Its a wonderful story and the movie is well made. The Characters have been essayed perfectly. I loved the movie, even though i could predict part of the story line. Even after the Movie, there was one Quote that stayed with me.

Conversation:

Atticus Finch: I remember when my daddy gave me that gun. He told me that I should never point it at anything in the house; and that he’d rather I’d shoot at tin cans in the backyard. But he said that sooner or later he supposed the temptation to go after birds would be too much, and that I could shoot all the blue jays I wanted – if I could hit ’em; but to remember it was a sin to kill a mockingbird.

Jem: Why?

Atticus Finch: Well, I reckon because mockingbirds don’t do anything but make music for us to enjoy. They don’t eat people’s gardens, don’t nest in the corncrib, they don’t do one thing but just sing their hearts out for us.

Jaane tu..

well i finally got round to watching it. Liked it. Everyone i know (almost) who watched it has liked it. Since i had missed the big picnic to Adlabs i had to watch this at home else all alone at Adlabs 😛

The Movie is a refreshing change from the usual boring “love stories”. It s about this group which could be quite similar to your own group and has some very crazy ideas. The beginning of the movie reminded me of a good friend and she said the she was reminded of herself too 🙂 The middle part dragged a bit with the “i love u-i dont love u” part. but most of the movie was good. Also finally India has got a romantic movie with an awesome airport ending.

The Girl Next Door

well after 2 days of being really sick, i felt better today. so i decided to watch The Girl Next Door. i had just got the movie although i had watched it quite a long time back on Star Movies. it was way back in puc 2 ( or 12th std) when while completing my Bio records i ended up watching this at 1 in the morning 🙂 that too on star movies- the censored version. perhaps im one of the very few guys who did watch it on Star because i havnt met anyone else who did. i didnt know the name of the movie at that time though but a conversation with a friend who talked about the movie(uncensored one) gave me the name.

this is one of my alltime favourite movie.

21-the movie
21-the movie

here i am back with another movie. this one was recommended by Karthik. its about a bunch of exceptionally brilliant students, coached by their professor at MIT, who learn the art of card counting to hoodwink and win big at the Las Vegas casinos by playing blackjack. Its a good watch. Kevin Spacey and Laurence Fishburne are good at their roles-the professor and the Vegas Casino security incharge.

here’s the official webpage.

Watched this after i ended up missing out on “Jaane tu ya Jaane na.” Everything was planned but i had to come down with high fever yesterday night. so i couldnt join the other 25(??!) today. Yes, 25 of us ended up opting for the Adlabs show. *Sigh*

p.s. this has actually been done by MIT students. There’s a History channel documentary and all.

Adieu to Uniforms

well they are finally over.. Third sem is done with and hopefully behind me 🙂 with that also go the uniforms.. which is both good and bad. Good cause we can wear what we want. Bad cause deciding ‘what’ will only add to the morning rush. anyways that still a month away, ill worry about that later..

these exams were really something. a bunch of us got really creative with stuff from poems, rhymes and a very interesting parody of hotel california. hopefully the creative high continues.

logookay so holidays are here.. the plans are forming.. the first day was a wild day .. with a movie, lunch at food court and beach making up the killer combination. somehow we survived and reached home after a unfamiliar bus journey. what s ahead is pretty much unplanned except for The International Kite Festival on the 19th and 20th.. plus the Beach Utsav again. which just means more beach 🙂

lots of dreams, lots of plans

currently reading : The Devil wears Prada.

I finished “Skulduggery Pleasant” which i recommend if u like fantasy fiction and conversations overflowing with tongue in cheek retorts and sarcasm. its supposedly the first of a part 9 series. there’s a movie expected in 2010 too.. here s what wikipedia has to say. it gives away pretty much the entire story of the book.. so its a spoiler of sorts. i do recommend the official webpage which looks awesome. wanna know why the author Derek Landy wrote it?? see this. this book was one of those rare books that i read with really a lot of interest 🙂 and hope you enjoy it 🙂

thats him
