movie festival

My exams at CMU were over on dec 13. I had 2 exams on the same day and the day before that, I only had a couple of hours of sleep in my cabin (5320B). Well what could I say, the first exam in the morning went ok, but the second exam in the evening was like a day-mare, the questions were daunting and my sleepy eyes couldnt pass the optic messages to my half dead brain, and the result - the exam was a disaster. So with so much happening during the exams, i wanted to give myself a quick break, which extended itself to what I can call a "movie orgy" . I ended up watching 13 movies in 4 days, with a mean of 3.8 and a standard deviation of 1.7. Oh i almost sounded like my Prof. Ok so here's the list of stuff I watched (stuff i can remember right nw), and I should say I really had a great time, try them out urself sometime.

In order of preference : ( I liked all of them, they fall into the 8-10 cader)

  • The Sting - Robert Redford and Paul Newman (an amazing conmen show)
  • The Girl next door - (Dude, Elisha Cuthbert is hot !)

  • Mystic River - Sean Penn, Tim Robbins ...
  • Fast and the Furios - Van Diesel, Paul Walker (some cool stuff)
  • Indecent Proposal - Robert Redford, Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson ( emotional stuff, with Redford playing the playboi)
  • Unforgiven - Clint Eastwood ( The bounty killer comes back for one last time! )
  • Hero - Jetli (Some strageic play )

  • Minority Report - Tom Cruise, Colin Farrel (Spilberg show)
  • Hidalgo - Viggo Mortensen (The horse is the hero)
  • Dirty Harry - Clint Eastwood ofcourse !
  • Poltergeist - Steven Spilberg's first production i guess
  • Blade Runner - People say its good, I am still searching for whats so good in it.

  • High Fidelity - (Contemplation of the past failures with girls)
