Recent movies

One post to cover the backlog:

ஆயிரத்தில் ஒருவன் | Ayiraththil oruvan: Too much lack of clarity. Typical Selvaraghavan sleaze. Too much gore. Some shades of brilliance. I would recommend to stay away

தமிழ்ப் படம் | thamizh padam: Big kudos for mocking everyone (including the super star and MR as well). Also a big kudos for not sparing efforts on the details. Also a big kudos for the courage. This will work once - it releases a lot of pent up emotions from the gathered nonsense in tamil films. I have a feeling anyone trying to mimic this again will fall flat on their face. Could have mocked the "comedy" in tamil films as well. Big kudos!

Black Hawk Down: Excellently made. However, given that it was a historical recreation, it loses a lot of points for not crediting the Pakistani soldiers properly (c'mon, handing over water cups to the "US warriors"?)

June R: Beautifully made! You never know which movie would strike a chord with you. Loved the final appearance of Surya. Intensely poignant without going overboard!

...And Justice for All: Al Pacino rules the show. That final courtroom scene is explosive! Yet another portrayal of what happens when law is viewed through "rulebooks" instead of being representative of people's rights.

விண்ணைத்தாண்டி வருவாயா | viNNaiththANdi varuvAyA: One big thanks to Gautham for making Simbu refrain from his antics! I have a feeling the movie could have been much better. I think now, the "lip to lip kiss" scenes will become mainstream in tamil films. After a while, uncensored expletives will follow (Gautam will get most of the credit for that).
