As always on Friday, I will be discussing about some of the movies that I recently watched, mostly over the course of the week sitting on a couch as opposed to an air-conditioned movie theater.

I happened to watch an ecclectic mix of movies the past week. First a comedy, “Night at The Museum 2:Battle of the Smithsonian”. Being the history enthusiast that I am, I did enjoy the movie. Truly comical and enjoyable at the same time. I did watch the 1st part of the movie, so was able to get the story from where it continues, I would recommend you all to first watch the first part and then the second, otherwise it would be like attending a history lecture that you ultimately understand. I like the way that the techinicians and script writer were able to lift and create a story about creatures coming to life after dark in a museum..? I mean, only Hollywood can do that.Ben Stiller and Amy Adams(Yes, if you notice the last post as well, I would have discussed about another film that starred her, I eman she is good!) have both done really well. They have been promptly supported by other cahracters played by Owen Wilson(Simply loved his Marley & Me!) and Robin Williams(Always remeber his Mrs.Doubtfire! He was brilliant in that!). I would highly recommend the movie if you want to have a few laughs over the weekend.

                                                   

Another emotional drama that I truly enjoyed was, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. An amazing movie that truly deserved its right to win an Oscar. Brad Pitt, plays Benjamin Button, who in an innovative and never-heard of concept, ages backwards. Born grey, he finally ceases to exist at the end of his life. Pitt was amazing in this role and fit perfectly into the role, in terms of looks and mannerisms. Cate Blanchett as his love interest, was equally impressive. The film traces his journey, love, drama, situations and other first experiences that are completely “improportional” to him as compared to his age and looks. Taraji P Henson, as Pitt’s mother, deserves a mention here. Really fabulous movie. Please do watch it!!!

                                                             

Another movie, a rom-com, in my opinion would be “The Proposal”. Sandra Bullock(Am A big fan of her!) plays a Canadian Immigrant, who is also an arrogant and “devilish” boss, cheif editor to be exact of a reputed book publishing company. Her visa about to expire and constant reminders from the Immigration Department puts her at a risk of deportation anytime.However, she gets the idea that if she marries an American, she can stay on . So she strikes a deal with her Personal Asst. played by Ryan Reynolds, to act as if they were going to get married. Comic turning, when his family really beleives the both and plan for their wedding. The resulting twist and turns with the right amount of comedy and peppered with a pinch of drama and emotions made the film enjoyable.
