This song summarises what goes on in my mind….whenever when I watch the NEWS

Movies this Weekend

I love weekends…..’cuz that’s when S and I are out and about without a care in the world…watching movies, eating out etc etc. I am especially excited about today. I will be watching Sex and the CityHarold and Kumar escape from Guantanamo Bay ūüėÄ and then Sex and the City. Being a lady, I know most of you would expect me to watch Sex and the City first…but Harold and Kumar seems to be hillarious and I think Kal Penn is fantastic. Was watching House yesterday and I am soo glad it has Kal Penn. He¬†is the¬†‘funny bone’ of the show…not that he doesn’t involve in serious talk (medical stuff)…otherwise he wouldn’t have been an intern with House…which means he wouldn’t have been¬†in the show…welll nyways…I am just glad he is there. It is nice to see an¬†Indian American actor¬†getting such a good role…..and not one of the stereotypical one…if you know what I mean.

Coming to Sex and the City. Frankly, I was¬†never a great fan of the show. My life does not revolve¬†just around¬†men, clothes and looking¬†good. A real woman’s life never does. I love the clothes…I love the way they dress up and all…but it stops there. Yes…I do understand that it’s tough to be single after a certain age ūüėõ …but that doesn’t mean you sleep with every other guy¬†and expect¬†your ‘Prince Charming’ to be one of them.

Anyways, I shall write the reviews for both the movies very soon ūüôā Have a great weekend ūüėÄ

Movie Review – Iron Man

Loved It! Loved It! Loved It!

One of the Robert Downey Jr’s dialogue in the movie¬†goes like this..’There is an assumption that I am a Super Hero…I am just not the Super Hero type’…and that is what I exactly thought before I went in to watch the movie…Robert Downey and a super hero….hmmm??!?!

I was skeptical. I remember Downey from movies like¬†Friends and Lovers and Only You…and the most recent being Gothika where he plays¬†the role of a¬†middle aged doc. According to IdliDosa’s rule book…he did¬†not have the chrisma to be a super hero…but I was in for a shock!!! He suits the role perfectly..better than the kiddo Tobey Mcguire¬†as Spider man.

Downey is such a natural…he potrays the role of Iron Man with such ease. From being the head of a weapons manufacturing company (Tony Stark)¬†to Iron Man…resovled to¬†end violence his weapons are creating in Afghanistan and from going into the wrong hands….he blends into both the roles effortlessly. His sense of humour…his quick & intelligent single liners….the way he flirts with women…..he is being himself and not trying to put on an act for the camera! No..I am not exaggerating…you have to go watch the movie.

I will not elaborate on the story ‘cuz¬†you will find innumerable reviews everywhere but what I will say is¬†this…. Downey Jr is simply FAB in the movie….go watch it for him!!!

I’d give it 3.5/5 ūüėÄ

and i think the beard really suits him….. ūüėČ

Oh…and I almost forgot to mention. There’s this moment in the film where Tony Stark aka Iron Man is kidnapped by terrorists in Afghanistan and is held in captivity. The leader of the terrorist organisation wants to speak in Urdu..but comes across to us as if it’s Hindi and the remaining terrorists respond to him Afghani/Arabic. S and I were looking at each other every time¬†this happened.¬†

I am sure it would not have been an expensive affair to get a guy who speaks Arabic or Afghani to play that role. Do these Hollywood people take us to be fools? FUNNY!
