Movie break

I've decided to take a break from watching 700 movies a day. I've been catching up with a few ended sitcoms like According to Jim and The King of Queens:) Watching everything shouldn't take me more than two weeks given I watch about a season every 2 or 3 days. Another mini-series I began watching which I would highly recommend is Angels In America. Another obsession which is slowly growing on to me is sports! Weird huh? I've been hooked to the superbike season ( WSBK and MotoGP) big time. MotoGP can be considered the Formula 1 for superbikes but I've really been enjoying WSBK ALOT more. Only problem is both events will be ending in November and be back in March-April. If anyone out there has any recommendations ( other than soccer, football, golf, hockey, WWE and UFC) please advise:). I'm considering watching some basket ball as that will start around the same time superbike ends, and the best part is it will end around same time MotoGP starts! So yeah I'll be busy watching something all year! Ofcourse other than the 25 other series and sitcoms I'm following.

Before I forget, I had seen G.I. Joe a few days ago at the movies and I was surprisingly very entertained! I must say I really enjoyed it. Way more than Transformers 2. Oh and one more thing. Seth Rogen sucks. I've given up on his repetitive dumb comedy and will consider watching his stuff again once he tries something different. I might cheat and watch Funny People, but that is the last movie I'm watching for him.

make me sick.

Specially the kind that doesn't eat eggs, cheese or drink milk. I think they have a name. They're called ovo-lacto-f**ks.
I once got food poisoning and couldn't enjoy my burgers like I use to. I seriously began questioning my existence on this planet and considered suicide. "Oh my blood type suggests I don't need to eat dairy products to keep healthy and survive". How about you put a beef in it and invest in lettuce. Just like I refuse to be friends with people who own or like this piece of $#!T

I refuse to be friends with people who don't think "eating meat will do them any good"

Just thought I'de share.

The Syrian Bride (2004)

Hats off for the great Eran Riklis. I enjoyed this movie from begining to end hence, as usual, I recommend:)

Synopsis: "The Syrian Bride" takes place at such a remote corner of the Golan Heights that when an Israeli official refers to it as a "military outpost," a Syrian scoffs at its ramshackle guardhouse and token military contingent. This obscure border crossing is crucial, however, to the future of Mona (Clara Khoury), who hopes to cross from Israel into Syria and be married. Her problem is that Syria considers her to already be in Syria, and Israel considers her to be in Israel. How can she cross from a place one side says does not exist to a place the other side says does not exist?

Dead Man Walking (1995)

Now I might be a little biased about this post cause I'm slowly turning into a diehard Sean Penn fan, but I was blown away with his acting in this movie. 'Dead Man Walking' along with 'I Am Sam' and 'Milk' just go to show how great Penn is. They also show how much of an under rated actor he is. I don't recall the last time I sat with someone who had him on his favourites list. If you are fond of this "acting virtuoso" as much as I am then don't let DMW pass. If you think that you might start appreciating Penns work please just be patient, watch this film and focus on his acting. I thought it was incredible and probably ONE of his masterpieces. Getting to see his skills, talent and different shades of how far he is willing to go to prove he is up there with a few actors we can never forget will really keep you on the edge to always follow up with his latest work.

I say once again, please focus on his acting capabilities if you consider watching 'Dead Man Walking'. The man has 2 Oscars and thats not the end of it. He's defenitely got a few more in him.

Long live Penn!
