430946180600282surrogatesOn friday night i went to cinema after a long break to see the new movie of Bruce Willes…Surrogates. No need to mention that his movies meet the high level of standards mostly and this one was surely one of them. It is categorized as action/science-fiction. Shortly regarding the topic-line…there are surrogates of people used in daily life. Surrogates do the work or have the fun and the human beings just manage and witness the happenings all in safe at their homes until there occurs a murder of a surrogate which also causes the death of its real owner. Then things get complicated and it becomes more difficult to distinguish between the real and the copy, between the good and the bad. I really enjoyed the movie hence rated it as 5/5.

The second movie i have seen within this week is 30 Days of Night, which30days3up2 is a horror movie as can be deduced by its name. A group of vampires assaults a town in Alasca where it is night (no sun rise) for 30 days hence it has no connection with the rest of the world. The movie tells about the struggle of a handful of people who witness the murder of their family or neighbors yet have to think about his/her survival at the same time. The movie was not that scary but the scenes floaded with blood were quite disgusting in real sense. Well, some scenes were hair-rising  i can say but frankly speaking i did not like the way it ends. The end was very romantic which was not appropriate for a scary movie i believe so i rated it as 4/5!

Final-Destination-4Another Friday night and another movie session at cinema hall…Meeting my husband after office and having a delicious dinner at a smart restaurant with a lively ambiance, we decided to see one of the new releases, and i was given the luxury to choose the movie. Among all those romantic comedies or lovely cartoons, i again and once again, selected a horror/thriller movie (Final Destination 4) as it was in 3D only and i am 3D-addicted for a quite while 😀

I had seen the first three series of it and i had liked it although it put me under its negative affect for some days. But having at least some idea of what it was like, i thought i wouldn’t be scared or tensed this time…but i was wrong! In the beginning everything was under control but after the chain of some unfortunate events where the people are killed one by one in a disastrous manner, my mind really gave up defending itself, my heartbeats got accelarated and my blood stopped flowing in my veins. Yes! I’m one of those people who insistantly watch horror/thriller movies although they find themselves quite freaked out in the end 😡

Leaving the scared/freaked out state of mine aside, if we are to talk about the movie itself, i can say this was not the best of the series. I remember i had enjoyed the previous ones better and more. In this one something was missing like a wit or the use of creativity. Again a group of beautiful girls and handsome guys were trying to escape from the hands of death even while feelings its breath on their faces…They were again killed in the most disgusting, weird, inventive or imaginative ways. But it was more like a series of accidents rather than some connected chain of events under the frame of a strongly penned-down script.

Did i like the movie? Yes, surely i liked it even to rate the movie as 4/5, not because of its subject-matter or the majestic act of the cast but because of its visual effects embedded in 3D!

Kambakkht Ishq1I was so happily hyper on hearing just before my vacation that a Bollywood movie “Kambakkht Ishq” would be on cinema screens in Turkey. However, when i was back, i came to know that it was a false alarm. I searched all the nearby cinema halls on net just to find out that there was no chance for it 😦

Feeling hopeless and upset, i consulted my usual reliable source for Bollywood movies on net and at last could see the movie. I am not sure whether it did worth to be sad that much over it because i really don’t know what to think about this movie.

Akhay Kumar was quite funny, jelly and jolly as ever and although he does not have the sprit or the charisma for the screens, i should say i am quite satisfied with his movies composed of stupid jokes, funny mimics, and some emotional and sociological messages given at the end.

As for Kareena Kapoor, sadly i won’t be able to give the same opinion. Yes, she has the charm, beauty, an attractive figure, hotness, but surely not the cuteness. She acts quite well but there is still this little thing keeping me irritated on her apperance.

Regarding the topic…well, we hardly think of a Bollywood movie without the love theme, right? Hence it was smelling romance in the air, action on the ground and comedy in between 🙂 A girl (future doctor) and a boy (a stuntman) who both hate “love” itself and urge lovely couples to break up as well, fall in love with each other in the end…that is what happens very briefly.

The scene which i fully loved and laughed at like anything was the one when Kareena forgets a watch in Akhsay’s stomach during an operation that keeps chanting “om mangalam mangalam” once in every hour, especially at unexpected moments…That was really cute!

Oh! By the way, appearance of some Hollywood stars like Silvester Stallone was another lovely color in the movie being not the center of attraction as expected though…

All in all…Kambakkht Ishq does not contain any important message for the audience, does not render any significant emotion, does not give the audience anything good or bad but still a nice timepass! Hence my rate is 3,5/5!

P.S.: If you get any chance, listen to Om Mangalam from the soundtrack which has quite a vivid melody 🙂

love-aaj-kal-1A tired mind and a slightly sick body (caught cold unfortunately) was thinking for a Friday night action as Friday is the best day of the week which is not to be wasted no matter how much tired or sick you are! Unfortunately at certain times, our metabolism (triggered by a laziness or a down-feeling) causes us to stay at home even on a Friday night, and at these times best way to enjoy oneself is to pick up a right movie for your soul which is already in search of an amusement in such a stressed life flowing always in hurry!

After watching a series of Shahrukh Khan movies such as Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam, Karan Arjun and Anjaam, i was really in need of a modern bollywood story with a fresh screen (I am still the biggest fan of SRK, that is an another debate 😀 ). There was the movie on my desk resting in silence for a day named “Love Aaj Kal” so i decided to go for it. I didn’t go for a search on net before seeing it as this time subtitles were available in English (unfortunately the subs were not matching the scenes, which i realized later on!).

Soon i discovered Saif Ali (the funny guy of bollywood) and Deepika Padukone (popularized by the movie Om Shanti Om thanks to SRK) were the leading cast. The movie was proceeding in two different times: the past and the present. Both telling about a love story embedded by some bollywood items. In the past, the relation between Jai Varhdan Singh and Harleen Kaun is so pure, simple yet strong and stubborn while the bond between Veer and Meera is modern, or rather post-modern even to have a break-up party, superficial and weak to split off at any moment.

love-aaj-kal01However, things start to change their interface and the so-called hollow love soon proved itself as deep as a sea that is only to be waken up by a stone thrown from the shore! 

Saif Ali was as cool and funny as ever and Deepika was looking so like a delicate butterfly. I loved the scenes where she was acting as drunk so behaving more like a naughty kid. And yea i should say i love her clothes, whatever she wears just fits on her (which is hard not to envy 😛 )

What is to get from the movie is sometimes even if the truth is just lying in front of our eyes, we may not be able to see it with the eyes of our mind yet the heart sees everything in real, so that the love can be felt as true as a heartbeat!

I rate the movie as 4/5 as it is lack of a catchy soundtrack (we all know that item songs are quite important in a bollywood movie, don’t we?) yet still it worths more than watching…Let yourself get lost in it 🙂

anjaamI left two extremely busy days behind struggling to catch up with the workload at office. Days were quite killing yet i am alive! 😀 On these miserable days of mine, my unique supporter was (bilkul) Shahrukh Khan 😛 I wouldn’t have been able to overcome the nights of those hectic days without his golden movies refreshing my mind taking me far away from where i am keeping every stressing thing out of my mind and surrounding my soul with sarees, bindiyas, bending eye-brows, ‘bada bada’ tear drops, romance-full dancing scenes, scenes from real India and its rural people, and lovely songs finding life in velvet voices. Ahh!! Such a long sentence for such a sharp feeling…Let me summarize…Anjaam & Karan Arjun under the scope of Shah Rukh Khan 😀

When i found these movies, i had no idea what they were about. Yet soon i discovered that Anjaam depicts SRK as a maniac whereas K&A describes him as a lover, a dedicated son and a brother. Isn’t it weird that an Indian man named SRK fits each and every role perfectly as if he is a dedicatedly maniac born lover 😛

In Anjaam, Madhuri Dixit accompanies him. She acts as the woman (Shivani) with whom SRK (Vijay) is deadly in love, which is to be turned into an obsession soon. Although Madhuri gets married and has kids and leads a happy life with her family, that does not prevent him from getting what he wants, aka Shivani. And this endless obssesion causes the death or the injury of the half of the cast!!!

The catchy thing in the movie (apart from SRK of course) is the amazing dancing skills of Madhuri!

I always love SRK when he is a romantic hero saying “Raj naam to suna hoga” or “main hoon na”; however i should confess that even the obsessiveness fits him when it is about love 😀

At the end of this high-action movie, i could not decide whether the end is happy or sad as it varies from different angles. Let me know if you watch the movie and arrive at a decision. Theek?!

Karan%20ArjunHowever, in Karan Arjun, we are again face to face with a SRK who is brave, strong, intelligent, good at fighting, good at loving, romantic with a fierce or emotional looks according to the situation. Salman Khan and Kajol share the scene with him. I guess i repeated now and then that i don’t like Salman Khan at all but after this move (seeing his face carrying a teenage innocence) my hard feelings started to melt a bit! As for Kajol, she is like a perfect match for SRK with her simplicity and purity. Here the topic line is quite random for the ones who believes in reincarnation and quite odd for the non-believers and very interesting for both sides because here we witness the re-birth of the very same persons, Karan and Arjun to take the revenge both for their restless souls and for their unfortunate mother. The movie is a really good example of family bonds, and encourages one to have strong belief in whatever they believe!

I loved the soundtrack of Karan Arjun and the dance scene where SRK and Kajol jumps and hops like little kids at a stray house. You wana see proof? See below 😀

P.S.: Curious about my rating? 4/5 for Anjaam and 5/5 for Karan Arjun, and 10/5 for SRK 😛

When Jirou is about to celebrate his 20th birthday at a dinner on his own, a young girl joins him out of blue. Being lively, energetic, lovely and a bit crazy, this new girl looks like a perfect match for him. However, he soon finds out that the girl has some super powers and in the end discovers that the girl is a cyborg indeed sent especially for him with a special mission. Being a cyborg, the girl is totally lack of any kind of emotion or the feelings that the human beings have; she is even not able to say “I Love You”! But this bitter truth is not a hindrance in front of Jirou’s extreme love for the cyborg girl…

My readers already know that i like far east movies and i found this 2008 Japanese movie quite enjoyable and touchy as well. It includes all the items of science-fiction, thriller, action, romance and fun hence serving the audience in variety. All in all, it presents an emotional turmoil in the end getting a 4/5 from me.

terminator_salvation-poster_m

Fridaynight…in front of the shopping mall where hubby and me will have a dinner…Hubby said “i wana take you to a romantic movie, plz pick up one”… I thought for a second and i replied “that is such a nice offer, i have been looking forward to seeing Terminator”…he smiled and said “that is why i love my wife, she is romantic deep inside not on the surface” 😛

After getting seated ourselves and placing our pop-corn boxes on a suitable reach to us, the usual high pitch Terminator music filled our ears which exhilarated us….

The war between machines and humans are on the peak in this part. The machines are much more developed and complicated…The humans are much more dedicated and fierce…The visual effects are so real…Only thing that was missed in the movie was Arnold himself…although they tried to compensate this gap showing a machine having some kind of fake Arnold look, it didn’t meet the needs i believe…

Still…

“If your are reading this, that means you are part of the resistance. I recommned to all the resistance to see the Terminator-Salvation which is a 5/5 action-thriller….This is John Connor!” 😀
