Something Borrowed : Thoughts on the book

11th September 2011

Something Borrowed by Emily Giffin My rating: 2 of 5 stars So, a confession : I actually watched the movie before I read the book. Which may influence a lot of what I felt – I really, really tried hard to like this book but I have to say that I didn’t. Although I liked the movie, there are some things I chose to ignore while watching because overall I like the actors and just the “chick flick” movie in…

Stop telling me things!

28th October 2009

You know I just realized.. Because we are all so ”connected” and living in age where information disseminates so quickly, and so fast, it’s difficult to hang on to life’s ‘SURPRISE!’ moments anymore. Case in point is the way the movie business has changed, I think. I’m doing everything in my power to stay away from stills/videos/blah related to the New Moon movie but it’s just so difficult! I have Perez Hilton tempting me with photographs from the sets, but…

Broke on Books

16th July 2009

I have spent way too much money this month on books but what the heck. Just bought “The Second Sex” by Simone de Beauvoir that I have been itching to read for sometime. Also picked up two books at the Strand Book Sale : “Nine by Nine” by Daman Singh and “Endless Love’‘ by Scott Spencer. “Nine by Nine” was quite unexpected, I must admit. I, as usual, cannot decide if I liked it or didn’t. I didn’t seem to…

The Duchess and Virgin Territory

10th April 2009

I’d been meaning to watch ‘The Duchess’ for a while now, and I finally watched it today and I loved it! I think Keira Knightley is a very, very talented actress – she’s put up a stellar performance in all the movies I’ve seen of hers right from ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, the POTC series, ‘Pride and Prejudice’ to this one. The movie is based on the life of 18th-century English aristocrat Georgiana Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. There’s actually a…

Citizen Kane

21st June 2008

Yesterday, someone told me that someone told them to always watch a movie twice. The first time to just enjoy it, and the second time for analytical purposes. I watched Citizen Kane (for the first time) this evening. I had no idea what it was about, and I didn’t even look it up on IMDB or Wikipedia. All I knew was that it has been much talked about over the years, and very highly rated by most movie critics. I’m…
