A month after first applying, after a procedure that took “longer than even a job application would ever do”, I finally turned up at Ogilvy & Mather, Gurgaon, ready to begin the internship. If ever there were an office with a killer view, this’d be it–whether it’s the bird’s eye view of Gurgaon and the […]

Meal for two: Rs. 2500 (including a prawn entrée) Walk in, up the stairs, past the tastefully decorated terrace (complete with bamboo and wicker dividers) and into an even better dining hall. The candles glow a soft reddish-orange. The dark wood gives it the elegance. The mirrors […]

Some magazine covers I created as part of our college assignments. In this one, we just had to come up with a magazine cover for a fictional/existing magazine. I cam up with the following two options–both for a fictional monthly called MovieFever. In the end, the second one won, because of a greater sense of […]

Part of a Joker origin story I’m writing. It’s an episode from somewhere in the middle of the story. Give me feedback as to whether or not I’ve got the feel right… “Why hello there!” He spun around. Locked door. Windows locked. And yet, a voice in the dark. “Who…who are you?” “The question…well, the […]

What do I think? The lab looks bigger…definitely more number of suits, RDJ again looking the part, cool new gadgetry. All in all, a step up on the previous movie while still maintaining the familiar look and ambiance.Only doubt I have about the movie, though, is Jon Favreau. Make no mistake, I absolutely loved the […]

Bigger, better, kick-ass! Was that the Scorponk theme, from the first movie, played out on electric guitar I hear in the beginning? Linkin Park are rumored to be scoring the movie with Hans Zimmer, so I won’t be all that surprised…

This is the movie we came up with in something like 2 hours as part of Harsh’s application to LaSalle University. It’s about two men trapped in a lift and how they come to hate, then accept, and then violently hate each other.

Just been crawling around on the net, and what do I find? Megan Fox auditioning for her part in Transformers! And no, contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t just include her turning up–the poor girl actually had to recite some lines too…a task she had trouble with in the film too…but who’s complaining?

Now THIS looks like the good action flick I mentioned earlier… This has gotten me drooling no end-it seems bigger, better and more action packed (leave it to Michael Bay to up the ante!) than the first Transformers movie…

I’ve never been a G.I. Joe fan, but when news of the in-development movie came along, I got a little excited at the prospect of watching a good action movie. After seeing this Superbowl spot for the movie, I’ve gotta say, I’ve given up all hope of a good actioner. Lines like “What did you […]

In a move that could see the Jason Bourne series becoming Universal’s answer to the Bond series, Universal Studios has signed an agreement with the Ludlum estate that gives them exclusive rights to the Jason Bourne character and first look at other Ludlum novels. This move paves the way for future installment in the lucrative […]

Our Rating: 3.5 Music by: David Arnold David Arnold really hit his melodic best with Casino Royale. He had really waltzed into John Barry territory with tracks like City of Lovers and Vesper. But, in Quantum of Solace, we see (actually, hear) Arnold doing what he does best-heavily percussive, off-kilter-at-first action cues. In fact, some […]

The score, credited to Hans Zimmer and James Newton Howard, has been disqualified because too many other people were also listed as composers on the score cue sheets.Besides Zimmer and Howard, three others were listed […]

The first teaser trailer for Angels and Demons is here. Check it out…. Looks pretty impressive, and from what I can gather, Tom Hanks has done away with the crazy-no-sideburns-hairstyle he had in The Da Vinci Code. I just hope the movie’s as good as that….

As the wait for Bond 22, Quantum of Solace, enters its final phase, I decided to listen to all the 22 themes again and list out, what I feel, are the top 5 Bond themes. A word of caution though, the major criterion for judging is how well the song stands up on its own. […]

In a move, which I believe, has been taken to quell some of the anti-Potter sentiment, Warner Bros has released a new, really slick Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailer. Check it out…. The movie comes out on July 17, 2009, after it was pushed back by more than 6 months.

I just happened to stumble upon some set pics from Guy Ritchie’s upcoming Sherlock Holmes starring Robert Downey Jr as Holmes and Jude Law as Watson. Who/what is that? Elementary, my dear Watson. That, is Robert Downey dressed up as Holmes. Now, call me weird or what you may, but THAT, to me, looks more […]

And I thought Chetan Bhagat’s One Night @ The Call Center would make a good movie. After all, it had everything packed into it-from love, to deceit, to a gripping storyline-all with […]

Even Rob Schneider can act. Sometimes, that is. But what really makes an actor great? For me, it’s all about subtlety. No over-the-top histrionics. Just those subtle nuances and character traits the good actors come up with for their roles. Oh, and of course, variety. Any actor can play the same kind of role over […]
