Falling in love isn't this dull

Posted : 14 years, 6 months ago on 10 March 2008 02:40 (A review of Fall)

The movie was artificial, unfunny and also cliched for the most part. A few bright spots fail to lift it beyond boring. The only part I really liked was the final monologue but by then it was too late.

What happened at the end?

Posted : 14 years, 6 months ago on 10 March 2008 01:16 (A review of Marriage Is a Crazy Thing )

The movie traces the development of an unconventional relationship between a college professor and career woman. He doesn't believe in marriage and she wants a rich husband. What follows is definitely unconventional and in turn, bizarre, funny, touching, thoughtful among other things. The movie leaves without making it clear how it turns out. It's one those things, you know, where the kind of person you are determines how you think it ends. Excellent acting throughout.

Finally, I get a whole album I like

Posted : 14 years, 6 months ago on 6 March 2008 04:37 (A review of As I Am)

I've always liked Alicia Keys but never really liked more than a few songs on her albums, though they tended to get a lot of play. Finally, with her third album, she's produced something I can listen from beginning to end. It's packed with excellent songs and she's in top form both as a singer and a songwriter.

Stress buster

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 2 March 2008 01:10 (A review of Super Paper Mario)

The game is less action, much more puzzle solving. It's immersive yet relaxing. The dialogue is 80% funny, 20% tedious, which is a pretty good trade to make.

Relationships and the city

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 1 March 2008 07:47 (A review of Sex and the City)

Despite it's name, this series was really about relationships, not sex. The four lead characters are very likable and only evolve into more likable people as the series progresses. Their friendship is the central relationship of this series. The two part finale is the best finale on TV, ever.

Hits a little too close to reality

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 1 March 2008 07:41 (A review of Yes, Prime Minister)

Yes Minister and it's subsequent avatar as Yes Prime Minister is my favourite comedy series of all time. The motivations of all the characters are so utterly believable and so are the characters themselves. The writers added a huge dose of satire and irony to their writing as well. Brilliant acting by the whole cast can only help.

Hospitals don't get creepier than this

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 1 March 2008 07:34 (A review of The Kingdom)

Twisted dark humour along with mystery, suspense, the supernatural and some really shocking moments. Awesome mini-series.

The best BBC miniseries ever?

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 1 March 2008 07:29 (A review of Pride and Prejudice)

A gorgeous adaptation of Jane Austen's classic, Pride & Prejudice sets the standard for period dramas. Excellent acting, direction, costumes and set pieces - they left nothing to chance. Colin Firth is brilliant as Darcy in his pre-stardom days. The rest of the cast is brilliant as well.

Layla

Posted : 14 years, 7 months ago on 1 March 2008 06:18 (A review of Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs)

Layla remains among the absolute best songs Eric Clapton ever produced in his lifetime. This album would be worth listening to just for that song. Fortunately, there's plenty of other good music on here as well. The other song I love here is 'Anyday'.
