The Secret

Director: Vincent Perez

Actors: David Duchovny, Olivia Thirlby, Lili Taylor

Review: A movie following the lives of a husband, wife and daughter. This movie is a horror cum thriller taking on the phenomenon of death, wherin the souls interchange with the bodies and in the end returns to its sole owner.

A very touching movie of the loss of a husband's wife and a mother's daughter and a daughter's mother. (Complicated, right?). As the movie progresses, we get to see in-depth into the life of each and how it inter-connects in the end in a tearful moment. Originally a Japanese movie, remade in French and English later.

The movie, even though not quite popular, is a movie that captures one's attention when one sits and starts watching it, even accidentally (That's how is saw it...accidentally).

A charming movie, worth watching once. Truly makes us want to cling on to the ones we love even more.

Rating: **

No Country for Old Men

Director: Joel and Ethan Coen

Actors: Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem

Review: Amazing is the one word that truly explains this movie. From the beginning to the end, this movie makes its readers sit in the verge of curiosity and excitement.

From the spectacular camera work, to the location, to the the directorial expertise, this movie is a perfect package of "how a crime thriller should be made." There are moments in this film, wherein we would be forced to think, "What will i do in this situation?".

The actors, all three, have delivered their best and special acknowledgment goes to Javier Bardem, who plays the psychopath killer. But even Tommy and Josh, is impeccabel. (No wonder the movie won the Oscars).

This movie is an all-time wonder worth watching and best suited for character study and total movie analysis.

Must watch for any movie lover.

Rating: *****

Director: Louis Leterrier

Actors: Edward Norton, Liv Tyler

Review: Well, as the saying goes...all Marvel Studio pictures will have a superhero and a villain. The hero uses his superpower to save people and always there will be his lover, who is put amidst the hero and villains fury. The same goes for "The Incredible Hulk" too.

The movie is a sequel to the former movie "Hulk" starring Eric Bana and Jennifer Connely, directed by And Lee. The story begins in Brazil, wherein Hulk aka Dr. Bruce Banner is working a factory, and meanwhile is trying to find a cure to his "green syndrome". The movie then catches up to a never ending tale of run-away, anger, love and a super-duper fight with the villain (who again is a lab-disaster turned monster).

The movie boasts about its special-effects and some well-executed fight sequences. Apart from all the special efffects the movie is an entertainer which is sure to tickle the fantasy of any child and the child within us all. And to talk abou the story, like I said "All Marvel Studio...".
