Weekend Film Fest September 11, 2005

Filed under: Uncategorized — Abhimanyu Ghoshal @ 7:44 am

I watched some really good movies over the weekend, though I have mid-semester tests on…

  • Madagascar
    (Animated) – Voices by Ben Stiller/Chris Rock/Jada Pinkett-Smith/David Schwimmer : Directed by Eric Darnell

A very cute film about 4 animals that escape from New York’s Central Park Zoo to go live in the wild. Things don’t go as they expect, and its a fun roller-coaster ride all the way. 3.5/5

  • Constantine – Keanu Reeves / Rachel Weisz : Directed by Francis Lawrence

A gripping plot, neat twists, fabulous special effects, Rachel Weisz… very good stuff. Keabu is a bit too wooden though, and his character could have been better established. Still, I loved this one! 4/5

  • Raghu Romeo –
    Vijay Raaz / Maria Goretti / Saurabh Shukla : Directed by Rajat Kapoor

Rip-roaring comedy, with some of the most absurd moments in Bollywood history. Very feel-good, with marvellous dialogues and sequences. A must-see! 4.5/5

  • Papillon
    – Steve McQueen / Dustin Hoffman : Directed by Franklin J Schaffner

A true classic, with a brilliant performance by McQueen. It does get a bit trying towards the middle, but picks up the pace again, to keep you on the edge of your couch. Good stuff! 3.5/5

    Raghu Romeo, indeed has some absurd scenes. The one where he describes how to eat tea-biscuits is especially hilarious!
