The Curious Case of Benjamin Button


Now this is a movie that made my Christmas Day. It’s like reading a beautiful novel on screen.
 
The plot is full of heart and soul. Touchy but not cheesy. The movie has a wonderful balance of moving you and triggering various emotions: excitement, happiness, joy, sadness, pain, fears, hate, love…
 
There are memorable narration styles and screen plays that give this movie an original appeal. It’s as if the director was not directing the movie… he was directing the audience’s emotions and feelings towards the characters, events and the circumstances in the story.
 
A feel good movie that I highly recommend. Kudos to the actors and to David Fincher who did an excellent job here. Congratulations!

The Day The Earth Stood Still


It doesn’t take a renowned critic to say how terrible The Day The Earth Stood Still is. Overall, this movie is nothing but a second rate, trying hard, copycat — if I could even convince myself it’s anywhere near second rate. Tsk, tsk, tsk to Scott Derrickson…

After Thanksgiving…


After the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade in NY, the hearty Thanksgiving dinner with friends, the shopping attempts at Woodbury and Atlantic City Outlets, I have come to a realization how much I know I would be happier with my family. It’s really hard to be away from home specially when I get to see so many new and wonderful things but don’t get to share them with the people I value most.
 
I am happy to spend time with friends, yes, but not everything is permanent here. People come and go. The times together are warm and priceless, but nothing compares to being with my family whom I know are there to stay.
 
I miss my wife and kids. I can almost imagine how Christmas and New Year would be this year…
