Short Movie Reviews

  • Farenheit 9/11 A real hardhitting look at the Bush Administration and the Iraq War. Moore brings out all the unpleasant questions which the mainstream media have overlooked. He is as fair and balanced as Fox News and hence does not cover the autrocities of Saddam or his sons, but still this is one documentary that is a must see.
  • Bush’s Brain A documentary on Karl Rove, President Bush’s Political advisor. It is based on a book by the same name and has many anecdotes on the man behind the President some of them really horrible. Worth watching.
  • The Life of BuddhaThere are a million movies on Jesus Christ, there are even a few on the Dalai Lama. But this is the first documentary I have seen on the life of the Buddha. This film combines archaeology, mythology, and folklore to reconstruct his life. A must watch.
  • Barbershop (Ice Cube, Cedric the Entertainer) A mediocre movie about a days events in a Chicago Barbershop. Lot of politically incorrect statements and lots of humor.
  • Asambhav (Hindi) (Arjun Rampal, Priyaka Chopra) – The Indian President gets kidnapped in Switzerland by Pakistanis and Arjun Rampal from Special Group Force in the Indian Amry is sent to rescue him. Priyanka Chopra plays a completely “different” role, and you won’t believe it – as a club dancer. Can you retain your sanity after watching this movie ? Asambhav!
  • The Bulletproof MonkChow Yun-Fat is a tibetan monk who is protecting a sacred scroll and he ends up in United States. There he pairs up with Seann William Scott (Stiffler of American Pie) and fights the bad guys. This movie has it all – bad dialogues, bad acting and bad script.
  • Alexander the Great (Richard Burton) – This sweeping epic was so sweeping boring that I am now eagerly waiting to see Colin Farrell as Alexander.
