    And the loser is...

    -Bhardwaj Rangan, The Hindu

    "Looking at the Oscar nominations every year, you have to wonder if, in the Best Actress category, they basically check if Meryl Streep has had a movie that year, and if she has, then they only have to worry about choosing the other four nominees. I have never been a great fan of the actress, whom I find too mannered and fussy to fully inhabit a part — we are never allowed to forget that MERYL STREEP IS ACTING, OH SHE IS ACTING — and even when she cuts loose in her comic roles, there’s this feeling I get of watching someone work very, very hard at something, like a dog determined to digest a rubber bone."

    Philip Seymour Hoffman....Another case of a wonderful talent succumbing to drug abuse. The guy's just 46, has all the talent in the world and is widely acknowledged as one of the best around and all we get is this.....

    Never argue with a fool or he will drag you down to his level and beat you at it through sheer experience!

    The movie Dallas Buyers Club was based on the real life story of AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s fight with the US Food & Drug Administration for using an unapproved/illegal drug for treatment of the condition. Matthew McConaughey lived a reclusive life for over 6 months losing about 50 lbs and becoming really ill, in order to do justice to the role. This is considered to be his best role so far, and he has received acclaim from critics as well as the audience for his performance. By the way, Jared Leto won the best supporting actor Oscar for the same movie. McConaughey and Leto also won the best actor/supporting actor awards this year from the Screen Actors Guild as well as at the Golden Globe.

    Non-stop

    Watched it with my son, on NOV's recommendation. Came back completely entertained..!

    Plot: Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) is a former cop who after dealing with his daughter's death by drinking, is now an air marshal. While on a flight from London to New York, Marks gets a text telling him that unless 150 million dollars is deposited to an off shore account within 20 minutes someone will die. Whats more, the sender is inside the plane..! Isn't it easy to identify the person by looking at who's texting.. Bill tries hard but he can't! Worse, the killings do happen.. Thus, the story builds up, yes non-stop, to an action-packed climax which - I tell you - you won't be able to guess. Watch it on big screen

    Don't look for logic holes though. Because you don't have to, they are all over! Come on, what do you expect in such an outlandish plot. Just go and enjoy.. !
