Where the truth lies

A Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth movie about a popular stand-up comedy duo, a Ménage à trois gone wrong and a murder mystery.
Unfortunately for me most of the plot was in the "offending scenes" that were edited out on HBO to make the movie suitable for family viewing, hence I did NOT get the plot! did not seem like much of a plot though :) *The grapes are sour, he says*

Lucky Number Slevin

Harman Baweja is a cheap imitation of Hrithik (not that Hrithik is anything great), and this director is a wannabe Guy Ritchie, he does a take on the the Tarantino/Ritchie style of direction.

However, even some 'interesting' sound track and an ensemble of popular actors - Bruce Willis, Ben Kingsley, Morgan Freeman to name a few, cannot save this tripe!

The suspense is basically created by showing the viewer a series of scenes that do not show one or the other character and then later showing these scenes again, only this time the faces of the characters are shown and the audience is expected to go 'oooooh' and 'aaaaah' for me this was more of an 'Ouchhhh!' movie.

Get Smart

Fantastic! Wonderful!

I watched this movie expecting it to be another 'Johnny English' or worse, another 'Austin Powers' but I am pleased to say I was pleasantly surprised :)

Steve Carrel does a brilliant job and the very pretty Anne Hathaway (siiiighhhhh) is as usual good!
and there is Dwayne 'the Rock' Johnson and Dalip 'The Great Khali' Singh to provide some thrills.
The action sequences are awesome and could have been part of any Bond movie

This is one witty comedy that you would not regret watching
