Talaash (2012)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Dec 9, 2012

An Amir Khan movie always draws lots of expectations. Honestly, I am not an Amir Khan fan. Undoubtedly I admired many of his flicks including Dil Chahta Hai, 3 Idiots, Rang De Basanti et al, but nonetheless I never believed that he cannot make "bad" movies. He made Ghajini too, didn't he? So when I read more

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) (1)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Sep 22, 2012

This movie is all about Kristen Stewart and the myriad expressions on her face, when she was playing dead in the movie. When she was alive, and delivering powerful speeches to raise the morale of her army, even the Stonehenge looked full of emotions compared to her facial expressions in this movie. read more

Movie Tags - What do they Mean: Part I

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Sep 22, 2012

We all have seen movie tags like DVDRip, x264, DVDScr but more often than not never knew what they meant. So I thought about collecting a few useful information about them so that the next time you encounter a movie tag you would know what's inside. The tag is a part of the name of the release. The read more

Mulholland Dr. (2001)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Sep 22, 2012

This is one movie which I had to watch atleast 3 times to make any heads or tails out of it.

Mulholland Dr. narrates the tale of a perky Hollywood-hopeful who, after a car wreck on the win read more

Prometheus (2012) (2)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Sep 22, 2012

I have got one question for Ridley Scott after watching this movie. WHY RIDLEY SCOTT, WHY? After sitting through those 124 minutes of this movie, I really found it hard to believe that this was the same Ridley Scott of Blade Runner and Alien fame! This movie is also a perfect example of the fact th read more

I'm Not There. (2007)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Sep 22, 2012

If you are fond of biopics, you would love this movie since it is a biography of Bob Dylan.

Total Recall (1990)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Aug 22, 2012

Just finished watching the Total Recall today for the umpteenth time and I realized that during my previous screening of the movie I missed a subtle twist in the movie which quite changed my view about it this time. Having said that, the Total Recall remains quite enjoyable even now. In this Schwar read more

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Aug 22, 2012

Okay so we have a Yash Chopra flick coming up this Diwali. The possible release date announced is November 13.

The Pianist (2002)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Aug 22, 2012

If you are an ardent fan of Roman Polanski or if you like seeing the Nazis killing anything and everything that moves on the silver screen, then you would probably like The Pianist. I didn't.

The Motorcycle Diaries (2004)

How Well Do You Know Your Fight Club Rules

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Aug 22, 2012

If I asked you what are the rules of Fight Club, would you be able to go beyond the second rule? I am sure most of us wouldn't. Yet, Fight Club remains one of the most meaningful, poignant movies ever made. It was a treat to watch Brad Pitt and Edward Norton burn the screen with their individualisti read more

Is Maximum (2012) a Flop Show?

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Jul 22, 2012

It seems that Kabeer Kaushik's encounter-specialist story 'Maximum' is falling short of ideas. In this movie Naseeruddin Shah is playing an encounter specialist and he substantiates his seniority by citing the exact number of his encounters, which is 56. Unfortunately it couldn't even come up with a read more

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Jun 22, 2012

Some movies do not have an ending, much like our lives.

The Godfather (1972)

Rashomon Effect Posted by Rajtilak on Jun 22, 2012

"I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse." These words are so powerful that they alone sums up the character of Don Corleone.
