Suri is the secret behind Tom’s acting skills(from an article)

Actor Tom Cruise recently revealed that it’s his daughter Suri, who helps him get better as an actor. He describes the script to Suri and then listens to her questions because he thinks it makes him a better actor. He says, “I put Suri on a swing and tell her stories when I’m working on a script. I start with the beginning of the movie and take her through the story beat by beat. Of course, I make it age-appropriate. She’s four years old. But she asks all the right questions, ‘Why does that happen?’ ‘Those are the bad guys?’ ‘You’re the good guy, right?’ It comes down to the same thing as when I was a kid. Can I create a character that will make her happy, that will make her laugh? And you know what? She makes me get better and better, because she’s always asking me to do it again.”
Suri, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise

I jus love Tom more for this.....U jus rock!!!

Kites-flying low....

Kites has a unique storyline and a dance based romance thriller. In the harsh terrain of the Mexican desert, a mortally wounded man is left or dead in the heat of the desert sun. This is J. Once a street smart, carefree young guy. Now, a wanted man. The only thing that keeps him alive is the quest to find the love of his life, Natasha. A woman engaged to another man, surely destined for J. A woman who comes into his life like a bolt of lightning and changes it forever. KITES is a story of love that goes beyond barriers, boundaries and cultures. It is a story of passion that defies every rule, of a relationship that takes two lovers on thrilling journey filled with precious moments - and unexpected betrayal.

Here are one of the very few good things about Kites.....the posters....

Don't bother to watch the movie unless for dance or for Hrithik or Barbara......

SPARTUCUS- Kill Them All

While watching ‘prison break’ someone asked me if I would do the same thing for my brother, I wasn’t very sure at that time. But while watching ‘SPARTUCUS’ my mind was continuously answering that unasked question.

It feels as if you are watching something which includes many things from Gladiator,300,Prison Break and many more. Believe me they have only taken the best of them.
No surprise there, you say. If a show is good (and sometimes even when it’s not, natch) it tends to get renewed for a second season. But, um, “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” wasn’t even aired yet, but that didn’t stop the cable network Starz from granting the Sam Raimi-produced show a second season green light. Now that’s commitment! In case you’ve never seen footage from the show, scroll on down for the bloody, nudity-filled red band trailer for “Spartacus”. It’s like “300″ on TV but, if you can believe it, even more gratuitous violence and nudity.
Though the first season of “Spartacus” is subtitled “Blood and Sand”, the second season will be subtitled “Vengeance”, and land on the Starz pay network with a full 13-episode order. So even if the show doesn’t end up finding an audience, the producers and actors will be assured of, if nothing else, at least two full seasons worth of stories to tell.
“Spartacus: Blood and Sand” stars Australian newcomer Andy Whitfield as Spartacus, a Thracian turned gladiator fighting to return to his wife Sura (Erin Cummings) after being sold into slavery at a gladiatorial school. Co-starring Lucy Lawless (pictured, top left), returning somewhat to her swords and sandals roots as the seductive and manipulative Lucretia, with John Hannah of “The Mummy” fame playing her husband, who runs the school. Peter Mensah (“300″) plays Doctore, the head of the gladiatorial school.

SAD NEWS:Lead actor Andy Whitfield was recently diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma, and since the series can't continue without Spartacus himself, production of Season 2 has been delayed indefinitely.

Shrek Forever After

I distinctly remember enjoying the flick's off-kilter interpretation of the fairy tale characters we all know and love, the zippy pace and beautiful animation, the slightly snarky and admirably subversive sense of humor. 

And then the sequels came. Shrek 2 (2004) borrowed the Guess Who's Coming to Dinner hook where Princess Fiona's disapproving parents were forced to deal with the blustery ogre Shrek; in Shrek the Third (2007) we got a slight concept, a small amount of chuckles, and a rather uninteresting King Arthur subplot. This summer we're promised "the final chapter" in Shrek Forever After, and while Part 4 is certainly an improvement over its predecessor ... well, I guess I should stop expecting these sequels to recapture the magic of the original Shrek. The filmmakers certainly don't seem to think it's a priority.

For some bizarre reason, the Shrek Forever After screenwriters thought that the best way to end this monumentally popular series would be to deliver ... the It's a Wonderful Life concept. Employed countless times in sitcoms and cartoons, this is the pitch in which our main character says something to the effect of "Oh, I wish I was never born!" and {poof!} we're off to see how Shrek's world would look if he'd never met up with Donkey, Fiona, Puss in Boots, Gingy, Pinocchio, and all the other freaky fairy tale characters. So instead of one final adventure with all these colorful characters, we're offered an "alternate reality" Shrek who must reacquaint himself with all his old pals. Weird.

There's no denying that the animation is truly lovely -- if certainly nothing revolutionary at this point in the CG game -- and that the actors seem to be having a good time playing their old characters, plus the intention of a warm-hearted "message" is always worthy of note -- but unfortunately Shrek Forever After plays (way) more to the little kids than to anyone else (whereas the original Shrek was geared for young and old alike). Oh sure, our plot sees Shrek pretty much fed up with his role as domesticated daddy ogre, and it raises some familiar points for any young parents in the audience -- but we all know from frame one where the movie is going: The painfully old-hat "just be grateful for what you have" lesson.

As is often the case, Shrek's supporting characters get all the best material. Mike Myers does manage to bring a gruffly lovable attitude to Shrek, but it's nothing that actor hasn't done in the previous chapters. Cameron Diaz's Fiona gets to play an ogre warrior with a real angry streak, but the "girl power!" approach is quickly muted by a hastily-presented subplot that revolves around a tribe of oppressed ogres who must fight back against the evil Rumplestiltskin. (He's the one who tricks Shrek into revisiting his pre-Fiona days -- perhaps forever.)

Much of the film feels like a Shrek checklist, truth be told: silly puns and fairy-tale-style visual gags? Check. Whining donkey and frustrated ogre? Check. Pop culture references, broad puns and silly jokes about bodily functions, and lots and lots of familiar rock songs? Check, check, and check -- although I do give Shrek 4 huge points for an amusing dance sequence set to ... the Beastie Boys, of all bands. Plus Eddie Murphy (as Donkey) does deliver one of the franchise's funniest lines during an argument with the Gingerbread Man -- which I certainly won't spoil here. Isolated moments shine, like an early montage in which Shrek gets fed up with life and a later sequence set to The Carpenters -- which is really quite funny.
Shrek the Third
But here's the main problem: CG features have come a long way since the firstShrek. DreamWorks knows this because they (with films like Kung Fu Panda andHow to Train Your Dragon) are one of the finest animation studios in the world. As such, they could have worked a bit harder on the plot and the script, because if their goal is to complete the Shrek franchise with a bang -- they should have used a concept that wasn't already threadbare in 1965. It seems there's only room for originality and weirdness in a "Part 1," because after that the formula is king. Regarding the 3D presentation, it simply doesn't add all that much. The action scenes and the landscapes "pop" a little more, I suppose, but (as usual) it's just a gimmick.

 Shrek 3 - Donkey
Despite the film's attempts to cater to a grown-up audience in small fits and starts, this is most assuredly a kiddie flick. And who am I to begrudge an entire generation of tots their final visit with the big, green, goofy ogre? The magic of the first flick is all but lost, but Shrek Forever After is still good enough for the kids. And that's OK. I just wish (as a grown-up kid myself) that Shrek's last adventure was a little fresher than this.

This movie to me just seems like a desperate attempt by Dreamworks to keep the cash flow going from the Shrek franchise, not a high quality story. But if it’s half as good as How to Train Your Dragon count me in!

Identification des talents

Can u imagine a 16 year old movie with a star cast of Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas,Thandie Newton, Helen McCroy( of harry potter), Christian Slater, Stephen Rea, Bellina Logan (of NUMB3RS), Andrew Tiernan, Reese Foster…… 

Thandie Newton is The Next Bond Girl - Thandie Newton

Interview with the Vampire Goofs, Mistakes and Bloopers


Well I couldn’t until a couple of years back…..
Such a recognition…..
The movie is “Interview with the vampire’….
Watched it fully this time….I like the ending scene very much…

Antonio is now Dr Banderas

Antonio Banderas has received honorary doctorate from the University of Malaga and the actor said he never expected something like this to happen.

“I never imagined when I left Malaga in 1980 that this would happen,” Banderas told the crowd after receiving the doctorate.
“I really value what has been given to me today and I want to open more lines of collaboration between the University of Malaga and the world of cinema. I put at your disposal my 30 years of experience in this industry,” quoted him as saying.
The actor has been signed up to work with Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, who helped his rise to fame with “Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down”.
Titled “La Piel Que Habito” (”The Skin I Live In”) the movie is a revenge thriller and Banderas will begin filming later this year.              

Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 is a polished, high-ozone sequel, not as good as the original but building once again on a quirky performance by Robert Downey Jr. The superhero genre doesn’t necessarily require good acting, but when it’s there (as in Iron Man and The Dark Knight), that takes it up a level. Downey here gives us a Tony Stark who is cockier and more egotistical than ever. Or, and here’s the key, he seems to be.

Stark's sexy new assistant Natalie (Scarlett Johansson) doesn't have much of a part apart from showing off her well toned

 body (I didn't say arse), until last few minutes where she turns out to be a kind of super woman. Even though that scene is good it could have been more appropriate in a different movie which less obeys the fundamentals of physics.The action scene is literally off the hook.

Iron Man 2 has some humorous moments and several of these are provided by Happy, Tony’s bodyguard who is played by Jon Favreau himself who directs the film. Particularly the scenes where Happy and Natalie Rushman interact with each other. And one more funniest scene is where James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Don Cheadle) uses the supposed best product of Stark's rival weapons manufacturer Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) on Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke)......... Our wet crackers can be more effective.
Ya that's the weapon in his hand.

One of the best shot scenes in the movie is the racing at the Monaco Grand Prix, where Stark is attacked by Ivan Vanko for the first time. You gotta watch it in theater to get the best feel of this fiery action sequence.

The visual effects are sequelfied, too. Stark's Jarvis lab interface is celebrated to awesome limits (u gotta watch the movie atleast for this sake), Whiplash's electric attacks are not quite like any other effect I've ever seen, the Iron Man briefcase transformation is still unbelievable.

I thought the final showdown with Ivan Vanko ended far to quickly, though the battle against the drones was of a decent length and engaging.

This is what you need to know: Iron Man 2 is not as good as the original Iron Man, but don’t be so worried about some of those early, negative reviews—it’s much better than Transformers 2Spiderman 3 or some other franchise-devastating catastrophe.

We like it hot

Watched a good old black & white comedy movie 'SOME LIKE IT HOT'.

Two musicians flee in an all woman band disguised as woman to avoid being killed by a mob as they will have witnessed the mob hit.In addition to hiding, each has his own problems. One falls for another band member(Marilyn Monroe) but can't tell her his gender, and the other has a rich suitor who will not take "No," for an answer.The pace gets even giddier when the same mob arrives in Miami for a convention.

It had got six oscar nominations and also got the oscars for best costume design.
It has been voted as the best cross dressing comedy movie ever.
