The phase is over…for now!

OK…I am back to my writing phase…I have these spells…like cricketers…when I feel like writing and when I don’t atall! My last post was when IPL was happening and now FIFA World Cup’s started 😀 Awesome! I am just glad that I’ve never  really abandoned my blog….I always come back to it. Currently listening to some crap telugu songs…apparently they are this week’s top 10…huh..how it happens I don’t know. Watched MAA Stars cricket match yesterday for a while. It was alright I thought. I did not expect them to get so involved…like getting angry when a team-mate dropped a catch or mis-fielded…that Taraka Ratna guy was so angry at one point when he got the last wicket…I thought he will go break that poor chap’s bones. Paapamm…hits kuda levu kada athaniki 😦 hehehe It was alright…until the CM came and spoilt everything…and the worst part was when Dasari started talking….I just switched everything off and watched FIFA WC. I just cannot stand that guy….acts like he’s the King of all..the best director/producer/actor that ever walked the earth etc etc but frankly I never liked him or his films. Why can’t these politicians and wannabe politicians just keep out…they have to show up every where and once they arrive…we have to drop everything…how ever important it might be…and concentrate on them…and what do they do…give boring speeches…burp…fart…yawn and leave. Baahh!! When will this culture change in India???

Anyhoo, something good did happen yesterday…first, I bought two nice handbags for myself and my mom 😀 and Germany scored 4 goals..yes 4!! I was really tired of 0-0. 1-0, 1-1 results and was craving for some real football. Germany made it look so easy against Australia and apparently no one had any real expectations from the team since they are all just a bunch of freshers. I somehow feel they are the team to beat this time round…although we haven’t seen Brazil, Spain, Italy and Portugal yet. I was totally disappointed with England’s performance. They made it look so hard…the one goal they scored and the blunder from the goalie….poor Robert Green…I can only sympathise with him. Hopefully, they will do better…they have to if they want to beat teams like Germany and Brazil…God only knows how they will turn up this time.

Song of the day is

3 reasons why I like this song…

  1. Rhythm
  2. Awesome dancing from Mumaith
  3. Venky bhai couldn’t have looked any cooler with his groovy moves and all 😀

Movie Review: Hancock

I usually don’t miss any of Will Smith’s movies. He is one of my favourtie actors…and there’s only one other in the list. I love Fresh Prince of Bel Air and watch some of the very old episodes when ever they are on tele. He is one person who lives life to the fullest, has a great sense of humour and is a great example of the ‘rags to riches story’. Last friday, I watched interviews of Jay Z and Will Smith on ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ and when asked how he is motivated…Jay Z  simply replied ‘Being Broke is the Greatest Motivator’. Few videos…

 

…..and I love Friday Night with Jonathan Ross 😀 Fantastic show!

Oh Yes…Hancock..I forgot!

Hancock (Will Smith) is a story of a super hero everybody loves to hate. He unlike any other super heroes out there. He hates chasing the bad guys and prefers to get himself drunk and sleep on the streets. Along comes Ray (Jason Bateman), a kind PR exec who takes up the responsibility of improving Hancock’s image even though his wife Mary (Charlize Theron) is not so sure about her husband’s friendship with Hancock.

The rest of the story is how Hancock’s life changes when he comes to know of his origins and why he was sent to earth. There is no ‘real’ bad guy in the movie…like Lex Luther in Superman or Joker in Batman since this is just a toaster.

Jason Bateman was terrific in the movie. Totally charming and humourous as a PR exec…a loving husband and a loyal friend. Will Smith is his usual. He doesn’t need to put much effort into the roles he plays…it comes naturally to him. Be it action, comedy or romance. He is fantastic. When ever he is on screen, there is a certain energy he brings to the audience.

I won’t say the movie is mind-blowing or anything. It is definately watchable but don’t expect a Spider Man or Batman. This one is different. Give it a try.

My Rating: 3/5

Sowwiee…was tempted to put up a pic of Will Smith instead of Hancock 😀 Love Him!
