SilverScreen Summer

And I thought I can rest from blogging for a week or so. But then the summer is exploding into your life, Star Wars is opening, so ive decided to come up with a must watch movie list for this summer (and an intro into next summer).

[Done] Star Wars: E3 Revenge of the Sith . The must watch movie of the year, decade or forever simply because this will be the last ever made (atleast by Lucas).

Batman Begins . Now this one movie is not to be missed either. Expect Gotham city to be darker than ever back to the glory years Burton and Co. And with a cast to die for.

War of the Worlds. Not only the worlds at war, but the masters of movie making are at war too, at the box office that is. But they do have some sense, StarWars and WOTW are releasing a month apart (unline some tamil movies....sigh..). Tom Cruise wont be the classic SF fugitive as in Minority Report here, he'll be just another 'im going to save the world American hero'.

And the others I wont want to miss, but may not be liked by many;

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (remake of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate factory). Tim Burton and Jhonny Depp...need to say more?

The Island a SF Action Thriller by Michael Bay, starring Ewan McGregor, Scarlet Jhonson, Michael Clarke Duncan.

Serenity. By the makers of Firefly (the cancelled SF Tv Series)

A scanner Darkly. SF, Animated. StarringKeanu Reeves, Winona Ryder, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Rory Cochran (Do watch the amazing trailler!)

Unleashed. Jet Li and Morgan Freeman (movie shot in Glasgow, nice camerawork, screenplay, fight coreo...)

And something for next year...

The Da-Vinci Code Tom Hanks, Jean Reno (what a cast!) Movie by Ron Howard and the whole crew of A Beautiful Mind.

*Alot more movies are due this summer and Xmas....get all the trailers at; APPLE MOVIE TRAILERS.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
