Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love

As the holiday season is approaching even though it’s a week day you tend to relax and in doing so I am watching lot of movies whether it’s English or Hindi doesn’t matter as long as it’s good :)

“Art raises its head where creeds relax” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

I was amazed to see this movie ‘300’ for which I had a brief session with my friend in Canada who exactly demonstrated me about the strategy that Greek’s used as he had read this book and I have added this into my ‘to-be-read’ book list. Didn’t expect the movie would be this good am saying from the adaptation of the graphic novel 300 by Frank Miller.

It is retelling of the ‘Battle of Thermopylae’. The film is written and directed by Zack Snyder with a genre of historic fantasy. If you like the olden day’s war movie and the strategy that they used then you should try out this one as I liked it ;) and believe me in these men are all with 6 abs boy!!!! Actors such as Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, David Wenham, Vincent Regan and Dominic West etc it’s worth watching ;)

“The historic ascent of humanity, taken as a whole, may be summarized as a succession of victories of consciousness over blind forces -- in nature, in society, in man himself.” ~ Leon Trotsky

Second was Hindi didn’t hear the name at all ‘Manorama six feet under’ and the star casts are Abhay Deol (Dharm paji’s nephew or so), Gul Panag – amazing actor and Sarika, Kulbushan Kharbanda, Raima Sen and another great actor Vinay Pathak

This movie is based on Roman Polanski’s 1974 classic, Chinatown. I have not seen that one hence I found this one a well executed, classic suspense thriller movie. I enjoyed this movie though I felt Vinay Pathak’s screen time was very less as per his talent and potential is concerned.

Third one ;) (is it getting too much movie phobia) I guess so ….but this movie ‘The Contract’ is another thriller which kept me all the way glued to the screen with the amazing actors such as Morgan Freeman, John Cusack and Mircea Monroe; directed by Bruce Beresford (twice Oscar winner).

“Happiness lies not in the mere possession of money; it lies in the enjoyment of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort” ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
I am sure my friends will be wondering where the hell I get all this time to watch and my only answer would be, if you have passion for something you take that time out for it ;)

Happy Holidays Friends!

300- should give it a try. Thought it is the usual action movie. Never thought it would be historical.

Morgan Freeman and John Cussak - would a great combo.
