Starring: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne, Barbara Hershey

Director: James Wan

Genre: Horror, thriller, supernatural


I'm drooling over Patrick Wilson! *SLURRRP*

Now that I've got my fantasies out of the way, let me start with a word of precaution - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO WATCH A MOVIE IN THE CINEMAS WHEN THERE ARE TOO MANY LOUD DRUNKS TEENS AND AN ANNOYING NARRATOR IN THE ROOM! If you do, make sure to carry a shot gun with you.

The plot revolves around a haunted family that seeks to uncover the mysterious childhood secret that has left them dangerously connected to the spirit world. Is the father-son astral projection a gift..... or a curse???!!!???

Insidious chapter 2 is sequel to it's predecessor Insidious, but definitely has loads more jumps and bumps that pop out at you when you're least expecting it. I have made up my mind never to buy a loud baby walker.

The movie didn't, however, make me curl in my bed, under my warm duvet and watch South Park to make my shivers go away (Unlike The Conjuring which still gives me nightmares!!!) Those who haven't seen the first part yet, may feel a little lost if they start with Chapter 2.

Probably a one time watch at the cinemas, but nothing more. Let's see what Chapter 3 brings us!

Kai po che

Starring: Sushant Singh Rajput, Amit Sadh, Raj Kumar Yadav

Director: Abhishek Kapoor

OVERALL CHATTY: 5/10 (That's Just ME!!!!)

If you aren't a cricket lover this probably will bore the shit outta you.

Unlike every other Indian I know I'm a bit of an outcast and find cricket the most slowest game on this planet.

However to put an unbiased view on this movie I would say definitely a one time see. Kai po che is from the makers of three idiots but possibly no where near as brilliant as it.

This Hindi drama is an uplifting tale of three friends making their way in the world. It's the early 2000s - a new millennium has dawned over India and the air is alive with possibilities. Best friends Ishaan (Sushant Singh Rajput), Omi (Amit Sadh) and Govind (Raj Kumar Yadav) are restless, all keen to make their mark on the world. Then the three ambitious youngsters hit on an ingenious idea - open a cricket academy in a country where cricket is near-enough religion! All three see this as their ticket to fame and riches - and so they set out to turn the cricket academy into a reality. Based on best-selling novel 'The Three Mistakes of My Life' by Chetan Bhagat, Kai Po Che! had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February 2013 prior to its Indian release. 

The last exorcism 2

If he seduces you all is lost
Starring: Ashley Bell, Julia Garner, Spencer Treat Clark, Muse Watson, Louis Herthum

Director: Ed Gass-Donnelly

Genre : horror, thriller, supernatural

Good girl gone bad (and possibly sexually frustrated)

Overall chatty: 5/10
Continuation of the first part where Abalan has escaped and is still "out there"

Movie starts with flashbacks of the first part with flashes of nell being exorcised by the rev. Nell is now the lone survivor and is placed in a home for lone girls...with a job in a motel... Where things get steamy (wink wink raunchy) and evil....

Plenty of creeps, scares and thrills a  fairly strangesequel to the first part... especially due to the extremely random ending. 
Some scenes of the mardi gras parade Reminded me of the nothing hill carnival....

Side Effects the movie

Starring: Rooney Mara, Channing Tatum, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones
Director: Steven Soderbergh

Genre: Drama, Thriller

Release date: 8th March 2013

OVER ALL CHATTY: 8/10 gobsmacking good!!

Any movie with the yummy channing Tatum in it is worth watching. I was disappointed not seeing his juicy naked body though.
Side effects is An absolutely wicked take to the meaning psychological thriller concept. Plenty of "oohs" and "aaahs" and "omg I did not expect that!"

Jude law is no doubt splendid to watch on screen. He really does go deep into his role making it feel more real. And despite his age and clear signs of balding.... I love him.
And catherine zeta jones.... A woman who defies her age.... Have a shocking performance added to a delicious twist ;)

The plot for this movie revolves around a clinically depressed girl who's husband has just come out of jail. After trying every pill, every therapy possible she turns to ablixa.... With possibly dangerous side effects.

Worth watching..... Hands down!!!!

Release date: February 7, 2013 (initial release)

Director: Lasse Hallström

Story by: Nicholas Sparks

Screenplay: Dana Stevens, Leslie Bohem

Genres: Romance Film, Thriller

Overall chirp: 7/10 heart melting

A Beautiful romantic movie that takes your breath away. 

Possibly not as good as rust and bones but no doubt it has been a while since the silver screen brought to life a romance true to love 

The story is based on a girl with a horrific past, trying to move on with her life in a small beach side town. She meets a lovely man with two incredibly adorable children and they fall head over heels in love with each other. But can this love be tested against the horrors of her past?

Keep an eye out for an interesting twist to the story at the end. 

*sigh* is anyone out there able to help me find true love <3 Hehehe jk xxx

The attack of 26/11


Nana Patekar, Sanjeev Jaisawl, Farzad Jehani
Ram Gopal Varma


OVERALL RATING: 0/10 grrrrr so angry

I believe it is absolutely Ridiculous to make a movie that brings to life horrors that families and loved ones of those hit by the Mumbai terrors have faced.

Gruesome, yet no movie no story no news can portray the sadness, the anger, the Hurt faced by Indians because of these attacks.

A very unnecessary movie. Having known family of someone who unfortunately perished in these attacks. I have seen the trauma they have has to deal with. Is it fair that a movie like this should bring this horror back to life when they are trying to move on from it?

Harrowing. Ram gopal Verma needs to get more original.

Midnight's Children Movie Review


Director: Deepa Mehta

Writer: Salman Rushdie

Cast: Satya Bhabha, Shahana Goswami, Rajat Kapoor


This movie is based on a famous Salman Rushdie Novel "Midnight's Children" Three generations of sex scenes have been rightly covered to live up to Salman's book!!! All else, it isn't quite a good adaptation of the book.

A story about two boys,  who was born at the stroke of midnight when India became a free land. Apparently babies born at this particular time posed several magical powers. The two boys one, Shiva, born to a rich family and the other, Saleem born to a poor wanderer, were exchanged at birth to live each others lives and destiny.

Acting was hideous and the movie lacked connection between the scenes. And some, just did not make sense!!! why did Indira Gandhi sneeze blood in Saleems dream?????? I think I barely made it fifteen minutes through the movie before I started feeling drowsy.

And next time Wee Willy Winky and his wife start singing... please do me the honors and shoot me!!

A complete waste of my time.
