Sunlight Jr. Movie Review & Film Summary (2013)

Naomi Watts is 45. Matt Dillon is 49. At first glance, they are both too mature by at least a decade—not to mention too movie-star pretty—to completely pull off their roles of Melissa and Richie, a lovey-dovey pair of down-on-their-luck Floridians trying to better their miserable lives while stuck in a bleak strip-mall wasteland in "Sunlight Jr. "But at least the actors prove surprisingly compatible as a couple, providing welcome respite during what is an aggressively downbeat primer on the working poor. To their credit, they never condescend to their characters or their circumstances even if Watts can't quite completely mask her innate smarts.

Karodpathi Movie Review, Trailer, & Show timings at Times of India

A ragpicker, who spends a day by just having a bun and half a cup of tea, suddenly gets Rs 20 crore. How does his mind work? Director P C R Kumar has done a good job of the story by driving home the point that money is important in life but should be spent wisely. Though Komal is the hero, this is not a comedy. The movie begins and ends on a sentimental note. Director P C R Ramesh has done a good job by choosing a story with a difference and giving it dramatic twists and turns. The focus is on a ragpicker who gets a bagful of money and spends it to build a family.

Rashomon Movie Review & Film Summary (1950)

Shortly before filming was to begin on "Rashomon," Akira Kurosawa's three assistant directors came to see him. They were unhappy. They didn't understand the story. "If you read it diligently," he told them, "you should be able to understand it, because it was written with the intention of being comprehensible. " They would not leave: "We believe we have read it carefully, and we still don't understand it at all. " Recalling this day in Something Like an Autobiography, Kurosawa explains the movie to them. The explanation is reprinted in the booklet that comes with the new Criterion DVD of "Rashomon.

Vanna Jigina Movie Review, Trailer, & Show timings at Times of India

Synopsis: A dark-skinned call taxi driver starts chatting with a pretty girl on Facebook under the profile of a good-looking guy. He yearns to marry her, but life has quite a bunch of twists in store for him. Review: Vanna Jigina is a misguided effort. It wants to be a message movie, one that talks about the dark side of social networking (read Facebook), and how it lets people create an identity that is far removed from their true self. A similar theme was explored in last year's Nee Naan Nizhal, but while that film used this premise to narrate a crime story, here, Ravi Nanda Periyasaami uses it to talk about romance.

Project X - Movie Reviews

Sean Burns Philadelphia Weekly Unlike prior 'house party' movies, Project X says nothing meaningful about its subject matter and, instead, paints teens as unlikeable and reckless automatons. Matt Looker TheShiznit. co. uk There'll be many middle-aged, middle class haters declaring it morally bankrupt, but most will be able to file it under 'Guilty Pleasures' alongside Jackass, Bachelor Party and. . . er. . . forcing your pet to dance on its hind legs.

Katrathu Thamizh review

Home > Movies > Reviews Katrathu Thamizh is hard hitting Pavithra Srinivasan | October 05, 2007 18:24 IST O nly two kinds of people can stomach the harsh, in-your-face cruelty of real life -- the stinking rich and the starving poor. To the majority of the masses, which hangs somewhere in between these two extremes, this movie can be something of a sock in the gut. MR Productions' Katrathu Thamizh (the title was Thamizh MA first) starts out with the promise of being something different -- a word that's been bandied about so much that you hardly know what to expect these days.
