Wow. What a long weekend. I don’t know what was the last time I watched so many movies in such a short time.
Friday night we watched Over The Hedge, which was quite alright. I guess I was tired and we went for a relatively late night show. Plus of course, it was not that funny.
Saturday night was The Da Vinci Code. I thought it was a superb movie, but the disclaimer here is that I did not read the book. The wife has read the book (maybe more than once!) and she said that the book is much better. What a surprise. If directors had a chance of making the entire book into a film, they would of course do it, but then it would be a 10-hour movie!! So I liked it because it saves me from reading the book, which I started at some point, but could not really get started with it. Anyway, I give it my two thumbs up.
Sunday in the daytime, we were relaxing and decided to watch The Jerk with Steve Martin, which we had recorded on our DVR. It was quite alright.
After that, we went to visit a cousin and watched 36 China Town with them and a few other friends. It was strictly ok. I think the movie was a little overrated because of the starcast and of course because it is from the Mukta Arts stable. It is avoidable, just like movie #1 in this list.
Then, this afternoon, we went for Fanaa and that is actually not such a bad movie. I would think it could have avoided pretty much all the songs, but other than that, quite a decent flick, but nothing extraordinary. Maybe not a must watch, but money not completely wasted.
Phew, and it is now Monday evening and time to start thinking of the bloody week ahead. At least I am local this week 🙂
