Inglourious Basterds/BEL:Columbia - 18/07/10

Inglourious Basterds (2009)

The film is overall a Classic Model movie with majority of conversations in it, and not much action sequences. The action sequences did have some gore and had great Originality. The climax Setting Ups was awesome and just superb. Really liked the Character done by Christoph Waltz, (Col Hans Landa) was awesome, and really deserved the Academy Award.

The Great Escape (1963)

The Great Escape (1963)

- Viewed on 14/06/10

Wow, a good adventurous classic film set in the plot of a German Camp in
which attempts of Escapes committed, but more likely to be caught again and again. The Planning, organising the Final Mass Escape was really good and thrilling too. It does have some good unexpected moments towards the end too. More amusing and interesting was that, seeing young Richard Attenborough in a lead role in the film. (Only realised at the End-Credits)

Moreover, its a must watch movie for classic film fans.
Rating - 8/10

Quantum of Solace (2008)

Quantum of Solace (2008)

- Viewed on 10/05/10

Scenes which i liked - Aston Martin Tunnel chase scene at the beginning seems mind-blowing, Opera scene action (similar to Hitman:Blood Money sequence) Rest i didnt feel anything better in it. Casino Royale had much great scenes compared to Quantum of Solace. Still its good for an Action-Thriller.
Rating:- 6/10 (Watchable)

Mirrors (2008)

Mirrors (2008)

- Viewed on 07/05/10

Starring: Kiefer Sutherland
Indeed good to see Kiefer in a lead role after his presence of only voice in the movie Phone Booth. Mirrors is a good horror movie, in which the reflection in a mirror becomes still and acts on its own thus putting the man itself to death. The film does have some amazing twists in it, and the climax of the film was fabulous.
Rating: 8/10 (A Good watch)
