Nice.The first movie review shall be mine :D

Safety Not Guaranteed (2012):

Yeah It was good watch, Like Blastwave said it turned out to be a "darling" movie or something like that.

Spoiler: show
There wasn't any actualy time travel in the film until the end and th girl was stupid enough to go back in time with a reatrd/psycho who thought that his "Girlfriend" was dead but still.It was touching. :p


Anywho since I don't give out numbers for game and movies anymore I'm going to say that the movie was "great".

Gizmo's Rating: Great.


Dr.Strangelove......... (1964):

Fantastic old timey (black n white) film about the Cold War but with a humourous twist.I was pretty much laughing the whole time but it also had a grave message hidden within.Definitely a must watch film for the few who haven't seen it already.

Gizmo's Rating: Awesome.

English Vinglish - 9/10 - Watching an Indian movie after an eternity. Well technically it wasn't your run of the mill Indian movie but none the less it was just awesome.

Lol main bhi kahoun, The detachment is a 2011 movie, not this years and its very good 8/10 for me. I personally like Adrian brody, kafi alaa actot hai, watch Thr Pianist, pretty good movie too.That and The Jacket which also stars him and keria knightly :D

Anybody who does not mind old but gold should definitely watch Heer Ranjha. Filmed in the year 1970, Heer Ranjha is the enactment of one of Waris Shah's well-renowned works (Heer Ranjha). Plenty of people here might well resent punjabi films but this one maintains a GREAT balance between romance and humour. Directed by Masood Pervaiz and some excellent songs contributed by Noor Jahan, Masood Rana and Ghulam Ali make this a brilliant, all-round effort for its time of release. Easily my all-time favourite.

[MENTION=24078]DarkLordMalik[/MENTION] [MENTION=507]manigamer[/MENTION] [MENTION=32680]xcvb2012[/MENTION] Somewhere in time is also a great 'classic' in that regard. Romantic movie, though.

Serenity
The Bourne Legacy


The movie completely lacks the story , the purpose of it , its more like a hunt movie , The previous bourne series had a purpose a story it has nothing but only action which is pretty good specially the bike scenes , it has lot of loop holes of the genetic stuff , Edward norton is wasted in movie he has no strong presence . I do hope they make another one dou and have matt damon back along with jermey renner

7/10

The Bourne Legacy: [MENTION=801]cobby[/MENTION] There was nothing wrong with this one but it was heavily overshadowed by the trilogy and they didn't have anything new to offer.
I suppose it wont be a spoiler if I say it was exactly like Bourne identity with Hawke in it who could not do justice with the role bestowed upon him. Heroin was the only good change and hey, they had drones this time. I am a huge Bourne fan and had high hopes but left disappointed.
My rating would be 6/10

So since the original print for The Bourne Legacy is out, I Re-watched the whole Bourne trilogy in one go before watching Legacy as I watched the trilogy long time ago :D
So here we go, won't go into detail except for Legacy :p
The Bourne Identity (Again)

One of my favourite agent/spy/secret government agency type thriller movie and series. Great action scenes, love the fight scenes. Story is good and keeps you intersted and guessing.
Matt Damon perfectly portrays the role of Jason bourne, a lethal weapon with amnesia:wink2:
8.5/10

The Bourne Supremacy (Again)

The sequel stepped down a little in terms of pacing and editing in my opinion. Was still great. Great action and fighting scenes. Matt damon shines again.
8.2/10

The Bourne Ultimatum (Again)

My favourite from the Trilogy. It had everything that made the first one great and more. Action, fighting scenes, thrill etc was awesome. And gave a lot more insight to the story.
Matt damon shines yet again :D
8.8/10

And FINALLY
The Bourne Legacy


So finally watched it. Was really hoping to watch it in cinema but missed it and didn't wanna watch it in camera print so had to wait for original.
Any way the movie was good. It is set somewhere during the timeline of Bourne supremacy and Ultimatum, its like a side story, give insight onto the agency project and all during the same time when Bourne was bringing it down. But it doesn't stack up against the Matt Damon Bourne movies. The story was lacking, there was no urgency or that thrill that the previous ones had, no real purpose. The pacing and editing was also a bit slow. Edward Norton was under utilized.
On the other hand, the acting was great, especially by Rachel wiesz, my favourite lead actress in the Bourne series. Jeremy renner also acted well, was kinda cool to see some other agent's story in the same Bourne universe. Although he is not as good as Matt damon, but was good still. And was really glad to see movie ending in a Bourne series fashion with "Extreme ways" song playing :D
7.8/10
