Movies I watched – August 2007

First of all this is not a movie review or comparison of of that sort. I just wanted to write something about some of the movies I watched during the month of August, 2007. If you are interested in knowing more about these movies, just check on Wikipedia or IMDB or just Google.

This list is only of the films that I watched on DVDs and downloads, and does not include those I watched on television.

  1. Mr. Brooks (2007)
    (Watched on: 04/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Crime / Drama / Thriller
    MPAA: Rated R for strong bloody violence

     Comments: A psychological thriller about a man who is sometimes controlled by his murder-and-mayhem-loving alter ego. Just a bit scary to watch, but its interesting, and how he does everything, planning and all. Better to be not like Mr.Brooks… in real life…

  2. In the Land of Women (2007)
    (Watched on: 05/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Comedy / Drama / Romance
    MPAA: Rated PG-13 for sexual content, thematic elements and language.

     Comments: Carter is a young soft-core porn writer and his world is in complete disorder after his break-up. He moves to his grand mothers place for a change, and fascinatingly he has got something in him that makes his relationships easy with women. A fun movie, but has a lot more into it… Also if you are in a break-up, this one is just for you…

  3. Perfect Stranger (2007)
    (Watched on: 08/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Crime / Drama / Mystery / Thriller
    MPAA: Rated R for sexual content, nudity, some disturbing violent images and language.

     Comments: A journalist (Berry) goes undercover to ferret out businessman Harrison Hill (Willis) as her best friend’s killer. Posing as one of his temps, she enters into a game of online cat-and-mouse. But you wont imagine the how it is going to turn out till the end. One of my friend said its confusing, but for me it was interesting. Don’t think its just another movie with blood and killings, but this is a fine movie to watch…

  4. Vacancy (2007)
    (Watched on: 09/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Horror / Thriller
    MPAA: Rated R for brutal violence and terror, brief nudity and language.

     Comments: A young married couple becomes stranded at an isolated motel and finds hidden video cameras in their room. They realize that unless they escape, they’ll be the next victims of a snuff film. I had thought they make only sexual movies with hidden cameras, but in this its the killings. the do live recordings.

  5. 4: Rise Of The Silver Surfer (2007)
    (Watched on: 13/08/2007 – x264/DVDRip)

    Genre: Action / Adventure / Fantasy / Sci-Fi
    MPAA: Rated PG for sequences of action violence, some mild language and innuendo.

     Comments: The Fantastic Four learn that they aren’t the only super-powered beings in the universe when they square off against the powerful Silver Surfer and the planet-eating Galactus. Thought I’m not a big fan of the Fantastic Four movies, this is just another movie to chill-out. Fairly good CG and why not watch… even if not… (?)

  6. Mr.Bean’s Holiday (2007) DvDrip XviD
    (Watched on: 14/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Comedy
    MPAA: Re-rated G; originally rated PG for brief mild language.

     Comments: Mr. Bean wins a trip to Cannes where he unwittingly separates a young boy from his father and must help the two come back together. On the way he discovers France, bicycling, and true love, among other things. A must watch unless you will dye if you laugh. Bean rocks as ever… One sad news is that Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean), has said that this might be the last movie for Mr. Bean. I don’t know… ?

  7. The Lookout (2007)
    (Watched on: 22/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Crime / Drama / Thriller
    MPAA: Rated R for language, some violence and sexual content.

     Comments: Chris is a once promising high school athlete whose life is turned upside down following a tragic accident. As he tries to maintain a normal life, he takes a job as a janitor at a bank, where he ultimately finds himself caught up in a planned heist. Good storyline and it remembers me of the Tamil movie Gajini, or its original or whatever.

  8. Cashback (2006)
    (Watched on: 24/08/2007 – Xvid/DVDRip)

    Genre: Comedy / Drama / Romance
    MPAA: Rated R for graphic nudity, sexual content and language.

     Comments: After a painful breakup, Ben develops insomnia. To kill time, he starts working the late night shift at the local supermarket, where his artistic imagination runs wild. Another movie on the aftermath of a break-up, but here what happens in different. Deals with real love, as well as lust, I think… Also I personally love this movie because it portrays the nude arts in a well artistic manner. Warning: Better watch it alone…!

Though I had two projects submissions and many other crazy things happening at the university, I was able to watch this much of movies. But I don’t have time to update this blog in my formal manner, as my exams starts from 29th. So I have posted the above list in the format of [Date][Movie Title][Year][Other Details], which is easy for me now.

I’ll update this, on a later day after 29th September, when my exams are all over.

UPDATE [September 29, 2007] : I have updated this post with further details about the movies, that were earlier given in a plain list. Also I have made slight changes from my earlier format on similar post. Also this new format will feature many details directly from IMDB and less of my own comments.
