cidade de deus

I thought Godfather,Goodfellas were the best gangster
movies ever made.This movie was comparable and at
places even better than Goodfellas.But considering
Goodfellas was released 13 years before Cidade de deus
puts Goodfellas in a differant league altogether.Cidade de
deus has awesome cinematography ( Cesar Charlone -
oscar nominated ),totally offbeat editing ( Daniel
Rezende - oscar nominated ),scintillating screenplay
(Braulio Montavani - oscar nominated ) and some good
direction.The audio was in portuguese but the subtitles
were pretty good to follow the movie.The movie is styled
similar to pulp fiction since the answers are given first
and questions asked later in almost all the anachronous
sub-plots ( like chapters in pulp).The movie is narrated by
Rocket,a journalist who takes just a minor role in the movie
( btw. this is a true story).The story is set in 60's Rio de
Janiero and revolves around a ghetto.Its very powerful
and disturbing with kids carrying guns and robbing motels,
shooting to kill,sniffing n selling drugs.It somewhat
reminded me of Black Hawk Down but this is a war amidst
drug lords unlike the war in BHD.
"I sniff,I steal,I kill.I'm man" uttered by a 12 year old speaks
of the way the kids of the ghetto use their pistols as toys.
Overall, a beautiful masterpiece that will take you on a time
travel to the 60's Rio.

The Answer to the Great Question Of Life, The
Universe, And Everything. The problem is that
nobody really knows what the question is.

The Answer was discovered by the great computer
Deep Thought.

There is a theory that states that if ever anyone
discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why
it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced
by something even more bizarre and inexpicable.

There is another which states that this has already
happened.

shichinin no samurai

so there was no booming of speakers like Gladiator
or Braveheart.This movie was a real break for all my
CGI clogged brain cells.at last i saw the famed
"shichinin no samurai" a.k.a "seven samurai".I never
thought a foreign film would impress me so much
inspite of its b&w and 3&half hour runtime.*spoiler
alert*.The story line is pretty simple with a poor
village recruiting seven samurai to protect themselves
against bandits.Its not just the action that i loved,its
a movie packed with a lot of sub-plots ranging from
villagers dealing with their miserable life,lil bit of
romance,class wars,comedy and lots of sentimental
drama.i guess this is one of the finest films ever
committed to celluloid.me sitting here writing this
review 52 years after the films release should speak
enough about the movie's richness in terms of art,
technology and photography which has stood the
test of time and influenced directors like cameron,
spielberg etc. kurosawa entered and now tops my
list of favorite directos alongside kubrick,scorsese,
hitchcock and tarantino.this is a film everyone who
cares about movies must see.

how to leave the planet

1. Phone NASA. Their phone number is (713) 483-3111. Explain that it's very important that you get away as soon as possible.
2. If they do not cooperate, phone any friend you may have in the White House-(202) 456-1414-to have a word on your behalf with the guys at NASA.
3. If you don't have any friends in the White House, phone the Kremlin (ask the overseas operator for 0107-095-295-9051). They don't have any friends there either (at least, none to speak of), but they do seem to have a little influence, so you may as wel l try.
4. If that also fails, phone the Pope for guidance. His telephone number is 011-39-6-6982, and I gather his switchboard is infallible.
5. If all these attempts fail, flag down a passing flying saucer and explain that it's vitally important you get away before your phone bill arrives.

goodbye,nice to know you

got no heart,stop pretending
go away,dont need your loving
found now,wat i've been missing
as dawn breaks i jus want you gone
i got blues baby you aint got none

buckets of rain,still torrenting
jokerman aint no fool in the rain
love disappears like spit in the rain

yellow sun, still there burning
bright moon, still there shining
dont stop, keep on climbing
keep looking for a new view
keep looking for what you knew

rita hayworth and shawshank redemption

"There are really only two types of men in the world
when it comes to bad trouble," Andy said, cupping a
match between his hands and lighting a cigarette.
"Suppose there was a house full of rare paintings and
sculptures and fine old antiques, Red? And suppose the
guy who owned the house heard that there was a monster
of a hurricane headed right at it. One of those two kinds
of men just hopes for the best. The hurricane will change
course, he says to himself. No right-thinking hurricane
could ever dare wipe out all these Rembrandts, my two
Degas horses, my Jackons Pollocks and my Paul Klees.
Furthermore, God wouldn't allow it. And if worst comes to
worst, they're insured. That's one sort of man. The other
sort just assumes that hurricane is going to tear right
through the middle of his house. If the weather bureau says
the hurricane just changed course, this guy assumes it'll
change back in order to put his house on ground zero again.
This second type of guy knows there's no harm in hoping for
the best as long as you're prepared for the worst."

Remember that hope is a good thing, Red, maybe the best of
things, and no good thing ever dies.
