I'm a self-absorbed Bengali-Torontonian;
Fish comes to me raw, wrappend in seaweed, not cooked in curry;
I love watching thunderstorms and rain;
Sad endings make more sense to me than happy ones;
I hate empty walls.

    Thanks! You are my visitor number,

    Wednesday

    Famished


    What is going on?
    Its November already. What the heck happened to all the movies?
    Is it just me or has this been one crappy year?
    Sure there was 'Crash', 'Sin City', even 'Charlie...and factory', 'Madagascar' and 'Corpse Bride' were arright, 'Mr and Mrs Smith' was kinda cute too but thats all! They were by no mean- 'classics'.
    Where are the movies that leave you breathless, hopping on one foot and another, salivating for the DVD release right after stepping out of the theatre?
    Most importantly where's Hugh Jackman? I've almost forgotten his pretty face and no don't get me started on 'Van Helsing'. What a waste of The MAN in that CGI production.
    Sigh.
    Yes 'Harry Potter' is sure to be good but thats to be expected. As to be expected of 'Shrek 3' and 'X-3' which btw is taking FAR too long to make if I may be allowed to vent about.
    And what happened to 'real'' movies I ask? They are really playing safe and steamrolling out the remakes and it-was-a-hit-as-a-musical-so-must-be-our money's worth-as-a-movie these days in Hollywood and I'm sick of it. Honestly! How many more versions of Batman/ Zorro/Superman/Pride and Prejudice do we need?
    How about surprising us with an original screenplay for once huh guys? Can you do that?
    You whore yourself into making one unwanted sequel after another and then you have the galls to pout at all the illegal downloading and DVD copying! Do you think people like to buy or rip movies like 'Roman Holiday' 'LOTR' 'Godfather' etc? Not likely.
    If they were any good, people would actually be interested in getting up from the couch and hobbling over to spend $25 on a movie in the big screen.
    Bottom line- we need some proper movies.
    At this point, I'm even willing to accept the best selling book-turned into movie .....its a time honoured trend ofcourse. But can you atleast get decent directors involved in the project? and no SNL actors either please.
    Though what I'm really looking for is to get surprised by a movie where-
    Happy endings are allowed but not cliches.
    Tear jerkers are allowed but no melodramatic 'how-dare-you-not-cry-looking-at-this-beautiful woman cry' storyline please.
    If there's to be action and CGI make it so that it doesn't stop the story but IS the story.
    If there must be a big star draw required, let it be Hugh Jackman in his first Oscar worthy shot of raising his fist to the rain and screaming a pledge...of something! :D

    Wake me up when the drought ends, people.
    Till then maybe I'll rent 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind' for a third time.
    Night.
