Paisa Phenko.... Tamasha Dekho....
Went and finally saw spiderman 3. What a disaster? What were they thinking? Y'know what? I read comics. I used to believe spiderman was a witty and playful character with a wacky comment to go with every move. But... Tobey Maguire, now thats a different story. The first two movies were proof enough that he could not act for nuts and now we have a dark and mean Tobey doing bar dancing( that seriously calls for rehab - not sure if it was for the director or for Tobey ).
If that was not enough, Venom came, you blink and he's gone. Was awkward that the Sandman got more footage in than Venom. Well, at the end of the day, its just a movie. And, that movie sucks. Really looking forward to seeing FF2 : Rise of the Silver Surfer. Sounds like a good movie, though we have gotten used to the Surfer being a hero now. Well, no harm in a history lesson.
Anyone out here saw Pathfinder?? Well, if you haven't, good for you. That was one movie no one knew which way it was headed. The movie is about a bunch of viking invaders who go in 2 ( yes, two) ships and try invading the red indians. As fate would have it, a viking lad had been deserted a few years ago there. He grows up to become a brave. So apparently, he is the only one who knows the weaknesses of the invaders ( their weight ) and leads them along a treacherous, edge-of-mountain trail promising them wealth and them starts pushing them down. hoo boy. It took me all my attention(maxed to the peak) and wikipedia to figure this out. The action scenes were terrible and on the whole, this movie is a major no-show.
Aaaah yes, coming to hindi films. Saw TaraRumPum. I know, I am brave. My girl forced me to watch it. We originally planned to watch Spiderman3. Frankly, I dunno which was worse. While Spiderman 3 boasted of some good graphics, hell, TRPum had teddy bears and monkeys ( Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukherjee) dancing to insipid songs. I'm sure some people liked watching a movie detailing a man's gutlessness( My gal did ), but it sure worked like a soporofic in my case. A near-total waste of time and money is my verdict( but the lady would not agree and so... does it matter? ).
This summer, so far the movies were utterly hopeless. planning to watch fool and final. Hope I don't go there and finally become a fool.
