Yeeeeeeeeees. TV lobers dis na our own. make we discuss extensibely about ze mobies we watch or books we read here. i go start.

I watch zis indian mobie: BLACK. Oh yeah i dig Indian mobies as long as it got English subtitles with it. That mobie almost succeeded in breaking ze record op bringing tears in my eyes but it didnt.

Zat mobie is off-za-hizzy. Amitabh Bachchan was simply incredible, Rani Mukherjee was slpendid. Ze mobie was beyond my exfectation and zey did it. Fls who habe seen it? lets talk about it.

Good thread, Muda. Just what I suggetsed to Husnaa and Fateez. Now they have a 'playground' as far as movies are concerned. :lol:

BLACK was a really good film. If you think Amitabh was awesome there, try watch Baghban, if you've not yet 8) . He's the greatest ever the indian movie industry has produced and I doubt there would someone like him. As for Rani, she's my fav indian actress. Like when ppl hate her for her role in Kuch Kuch Ho Ta hai, I just loved her acting.

Gee I am in seventh heaven!! Film talk and Indian films at that . I am a crazy fan of Indian movies.  Funnily enough I dont watch as many movies as I'd  like to.
Black did u say? I must definitely get it.  I havent watched any latest indian movies in a long time. I bought about five though but i only managed to watch one called FAAN, with Amir Khan and is it phooja? Its no great shakes really. But it was adequate. I liked Dillagi.. very old movie, watched it in 2000 I think. I think I am beginning to prefer watching some Indian movies without  subtitles, cos some of the films that i watched minus subtitles, I enjoyed them tremendously, but when I watched again with subtitles, the dialogue fell flat on its face and I couldnt enjoy the movies as I did before.  Two examples... Najaayaz and Dil. I first watched them in 1999 I think. Then recently, I acquired the DVDs with the full works subtitles etc and the story lines suck in each movie but the songs are still to boogie  for!!!!
Who has watched Monsoon Wedding, Bend it like Beckham and  Bride and prejudice? I heard Lagaan won a Cannes film festival award, or an oscar for best foreign movie some yrs back??

Incidentally I just watched Lagaan last night.  It was an Academy nominee for Best Foreign Movie in 2001. I prefer the english subtitled ones. No use watching a film you don't understand what's been said.

Funnily enough, I havent watched Lagaan  but I have been meaning to borrow it and watch. I got interested basically because of Amir Khan, not a fave actor of mine, but I wanted to see the quality of acting that got it nominated. However, it was the story line that got me disinterested. Maybe its not so bad after all. Luckily the one I am talking about has english subtitles. So it will be interesting, hopefully.
Now how about the movie KANDAHAR?  I havent watched it yet. I am told its a good movie,but rather sad. Who has seen 'City of God'? I  watched it one time at an annual film festival in 2003. Very violent, but very moving. Who has seen 'Shindler's List'? Its an old movie granted... some 8 to 10 yrs back, but I count it as one of my most fave movies. I can watch it over and over and over again....

Someone brought home Bride and Prejudice and because it had subtitle,I watched it.I enjoyed it so much cos it was funny that I bought it.I like wani tsohon flim din Amitabh - "Kabhi kushi...."And also Kabhi Kabhi.Ok I must admit its not the film I like but the song.Soooo romantic.

I watched Bride and Prejudice after I saw Ashwarya Rai being interviewed by David Letterman on his show. The story is based loosely on Jane Austen's book, Pride and Prejudice. The screenplay adhered very well to the novel, but the acting left a lot to be desired and I thought AR couldnt act, she was so terrible, especially during her grand speech by the pool side when she berated the English 'Darcy' about the superior attitude of the colonial British towards the native Indians. (I believe that is what it is, bcos I havent seen it again since and its over a yr since I saw the film). I think it was one of those things about knowing the story before the movie. That was a disadvantage certainly. At any rate, it was enjoyable really in a candy floss sort of way. You know light and fluffy and dont remember afterwards.

PS Lol the film was originally in English... why did u need a subtitle?? it was geared for the western market...

Khabi Khabi oh oh oh!! I think that is my all time favorite Indian movie for many reasons.
It is one of the few Indian movies where the dialogue was carefully thought out and well crafted. The scenes between Amitabh and Rahkee(?) Gulzar were just phenomenal, because when ever they spoke to each other after they had lost each other, there was a double entendre to each sentence. Check out the interview scene, where she interviews him on national television as a famous poet.
Then the music is to die for. I used to room with some Indian girls when I was at university, and every night,we'd fall asleep to the sound of that very romantic opening song/poem, when Amitabh was wooing Rahkee. It is still one of my favorite Indian songs.

Oh dear!! Sorry to read that!!. I think the reason why Steven Spielberg decided to have the movie in black and white was to enhance its authenticity; to really transport one back to that era. I have noticed that when I watch films in technicolor (especially the digital films that have such extraordinary clarity of resolution)if the films were of a bygone era, the atmosphere of the film tended to feel slightly false, because in my subconscious, I am trying to fit the modern externalities  of the  film to its ambience. Examples of films in which I experienced these effects, included 'the Untouchables' (Kevin Costner) and Warren Beatty's 'Dick Tracy'
But with Schindler's List, it was plain sailing all the way. Anyway, Spielberg is truly a great director, and because he is Jewish he put his heart and soul in that project.... I highly recommend u to watch it. Some of the best films made in the history of cinema were in black and white. I have watched tens of films made in black and white dating from the era of silent movies... 'Nosferatu' for example which is the first Dracula film made. It is a silent movie, but by God it is enthralling!! I have watched so many dracula films but I have discovered that none of them can hold a candle to Nosferatu. It is simply superb and absolutely scary.. So please do watch Schindler's List. I promise u you wont regret it..... unless u are of the view that the Holocaust never occurred, like Ahmadinejad, who is presently hosting a conference to that effect... He is just being tongue in cheek about it, in reaction to the fact that it is a crime to deny it in the west... :roll:  Absolute stupidity..which ever way u look at it on both the side of the West and Ahmedinajad :roll:

Didn't I say Husnaa/FAteez now have a playground?

I've been trying to lay my hands on Shindler's List for some time now. I'm so much interested in military history, and this interest has drawn me strongly to the 2nd world war debacles. I remember spending a lot of my time at the History Section of the library during my uni days. Have you seen Escape from Sobibor? You will like it very much, it is a true story. Probably one of the best holocaust-related movies ever made.

As for the reality or otherwise of the holocaust, for all we know, it could very well be a highly successful jewish propaganda. Or it could have happened. Who's to know? You certainly can't help feeling sad if you're a firm believer of the holocaust. Then when you look at what the jews are doing to the arabs, or how the jewish lobby was able to hijack and direct US foreign policies, one would be inclined to say "kudos" to A. Hitler for attempting to exterminate them :P  I certainly don't blame Ahmedinejad for debunking it. I would also do it, either just for the heck of it, or if only to needle US and the Israelis :lol:

Although,like most Hausa people,I grew up with sisters who think Indian movies are the best thing that happened since make-up,I'm no huge a fan of Indian movies.However,I did watch alot of vintage classics from the likes of Amitah,Amrish Puri,Dramendra etc (I know ,I know ,not sure of the spellings).

And ah,I did watch''Bride and the Prejudice'',which I must say,I don't see as much of a conventional Indian movie.It didn't push any envelopes,which I wudda want by the way,but it was refreshing.The story line,great.And it is ,from what I understand a remake  of Jane Austen?s much-loved and oft-adapted classic.

But I have myreservations ,nonetheless.For one thing,pieces of Bollywood conventions were not to be eintirely missed :there was a sense of the overwhelming attraction between the two leads, but there?s no chemistry there. Martin Henderson is terrible ? stiff and uncomfortable ? while Aishwarya Rai, though gorgeous to a fault to look at, does little more than flounce about and play the guitar.

The Indian setting initially seems clever, because only in a world where arranged marriage is STILL the norm would the conventions of Jane Austen?s world still apply. But why make Darcy American? This potentially opens a whole other can of worms that the film just ignores.

Ashwaira is one hell of a gorgeous chikalah  though*Lord,have mercy on my poor soul* .Well,her beauty made up for what the movie lacked.Hell,her beauty deserve its own thread,which I won't waste much time creating lol.

Wow...speaking of vampires, i think i have seen almost ip not all vampire movies, i just like the thrill they exhibit. Only lately martial arts have eating into the mind of director so much that vampires kick butt in horroh movies, vampire movies are majorly kung fu or action movies, though some still hold their thriller status like Dracula 2000. My all tym favs are Blade II (Nomek was just it),Van Helsing use too was inspiring, but the Dracula in it jokes a lot so he lacked charisma though he was still ill. My all tym favs vampire villain in recent films till date remains Williams in Underworld II, Damn he is merciless and swift, simply wicked.

Among some clasical vampire movies i have seen dat i still dig are; Don "the dragon" Wilson's Night Hunter, where will i get that movie sef? i havent seeen it for a while, another is Bram Stocker's Dracula with keanu reeves and Anthony Hopkins, Gary oldman and Wyona Ryder, i place that movie in same list with veteran movie Nosferatu. The last but not the list is John Carpenter's Vampire with James wood who was simply splendid.. he takes no shit who ever you are, then Valek the villain was one of the baddest dat ever existed, infact Valek grunts more than he speaks in the whole movie, come and see merciless killings.

Have any1 seen "Brotherhood of The Wolves"? its an old French movie, i think 2000. Mark Dacascus was the guest actor. The film is off-tha-hizzy, you just have to see it, it got subtitles.

That film had been lying on my manager's table for ages. I would pick it, turn it over and drop. I'm not a fan of vampire/dracular movies, but now that you mentioned it, I will try go watch it.
Title: On The Couch
Post by: HUSNAA on December 14, 2006, 12:08:52 PM
I dont think Brother hood of the Wolves is that good. Mind, I only watched the ending on TV. I am not even sure if it the same film that Muda is talking about. Its a French movie isnt it? That is why the subtitles, and it takes place in the 18th century. If that is correct then i think it is the film. maybe I should get to see it in its entirety.
I have not seen many of the newer vampire movies, except Quentin Tarantino's 'From Dusk till Dawn', of which I saw the first movie. The second and third were not worth it really. I saw Blade I, but none of the others. I just dont dig the modern vampire movies, they are so like Muda said: kick ass instead of anything else. Nothing to tremble about.
When I was young, I had this excessive obssession with vampire films I would get all tense and scared an hour or so before the start a vampire film on TV. I would debate with myself whether to watch or go to bed but I couldnt help it; I'd just have to see the film. I was so impressionable,  that after I'd gone to bed, my muscles always went into rigor mortis out of fright. I simply expected a bat to scratch my window and metamorphose into a vampire. The tension would not let up till the morning light when the vampires were safely back in their coffins. Then I'd begin to feel better and terribly sleepy, but then I'd have to get up to go to sch.
I remember reading a vampire novel back then as a scared thireen yr old, and as it took me a few days to get through the book, I always made sure that it was never in my bedroom at night... lol
I have seen Escape from Sorbibor. Very nice movie and very inspiring for the jews. If only the Jews did what the inmates of Sorbibor did, many of them wouldnt have ended up as lamp shades soap and upholstery. I have always maintained that part of the curse of God on the Jewish race that manifested itself in the 20th century was not in that Hitler killed six million of  them, but that they allowed themselves to be led to their death like sheep to the slaughter house.  For example, at one time only one hundred and fifty German soldiers led over one hundred  thousand Hungarian Jews to Auschwitz... amazing. I always shake my head in wonder when I think about it.
Schindler's list is very much like Sorbibor. Only the inmates did not escape, they survived the concentration camp, with the help of what's his name? Schindler.. a very good movie nevertheless.
The Pianist with Adrian Brody is another Jewish holocaust film. The trouble for me was that I'd already  seen Schindler's List, so I really couldnt bond with the Pianist. I personally found it to be a rehash of 'List'. Its a very good movie, but I felt there was  a kind of deja vu to it, in the Warsaw ghetto scenes. This is because if a director was trying to be authentic about historical events, then embellishments are out of the question. Thus the ghetto scenes were almost the same in both List and Pianist (for me at any rate) even though each enacted a different human drama. I also thought the ghetto scenes in 'List'  were more powerful and evocative. The whole irony was that Roman Polanski is just as masterful a director as Spielberg. I think I need to see the Pianist again. Maybe I will be less prejudiced about it. It won an oscar for best film, and best actor (and probably best director) but I couldnt help thinking that a little Zionism was at play there. Maybe that is why I under rated it.
PS Roman Polanski wrote directed and starred in a vampire comedy movie called the Fearless Vampire Killers.. very nice very funny very watchable.. bit scary nevertheless :?

I have to tell u it is a nice movie Husnaa, u really have to see it, infact the french did they are best work in film making in Brotherhood Of The Wolves, not to talk of the movie was nominated for best picture, i mean u had to see the matured special effects the movie displays, the 3D slow motions and the clear sound, u can hear virtually the sound of every rain drops. Damn that is a movie.

It aint even a vampire movie u know, its about the famous french legen of the beast (which culminated in Walt Disney classi picture Beauty and The Beast, but then this is not a fairy tale, its a thriller with skin-cut controversies the will keep your brains working trying to catch the culprit.

Not to talk of the exclusive Mark Dacascus Appearance to increase on the movie level of Martial arts. They simply did a splendid job in 2002. and maind you its not a an all fight no dialogue movie o, the fight scenes is just not to make the movie a full thriller.

Did anyone see Mind Hunters?

I said u lived abroad and u denied it.  Well all those films u are talking about are kind of releases that are so right now released. For example dream girls and the pursuit of happyness were released 15th December or there abouts. That was just three days ago!!!
Sorry infantry horn nuts, but we cant discuss those movies cos we havent had the priviledge of seeing them as we dont reside in the states. so we will continue to discuss the movies we have seen, and if they happen to be old, there is nothing we can do about that. :roll:
Besides we are interested in yr experience of them not yr rating of them. But dont tell us just yet, wait till we see them.....
I have seen a preview of Dream girls (and pursuit of happyness) I cant wait to see it.... but that will be sometime cos i am not planning on going to a cinema.

1.Is it me or is someone coming a little hard on Dan-Kauye? Ah-kay. :roll:

2. About the ''experience'' thing.Well,apparently you didn't get the point I made with the ratings.What I assumed was that my rating wud spark some interest with  those who didn't see the movies in question.Obviously ,it didnt work.And if I post my experiences with the movies,and it turns out  ,as it did,some people didn't watch it .. that wud mean ruining the suspence and rush of adrenalin.Open for discussion.

Men i cant wait to see that movie coz i know L. Jackson wont let me down. But wait...BG, do u actually mean whut u just said? that Snakes on a Plane is bettre than anaconda? I watched Anancondas (II) yesterday, i was stoned dead with fright, i have always shun watching the movie coz i thouight it was also one of the low budgeted pirated movies that issued after the first block buster came, i have seen several movies claiming to be Anaconda II but this one Anacondas have really proved my assumptions wrong and it has determined itself as the official sequel to the original movie.

The storyline is perfect and the director is really a good director. D movie is "just it" among snake movies for now. I dont see how Snakes on a plane will beat Both Anacondas...anyway until i see it dai.

Casino Royal, damn i love the first chase, they kind of copied Banlieue 13 [District B13], another french action movie that was nominated and won an Academy Award for Best Art Direction-Set Decoration in 2005, the chase was breath-taking, really, but they gave Bond so much energy and strenght, not to talk of the skills and success he got, i dont even like daniel Craig, he aint handsome, none romantic and lack charisma, the film also did not really diplayed a jaw-dropping hi-technology appliances except for the SonyEricsson Bond was using, and some computers at M's office, infact they did not really displaed the james bonds car technology wich is the scene i really look forward to in every boond movie.

Yes Fateez, the same one. Its no great shakes really like I said. I watched the Devil wears Prada last saturday. I really looked forward to watching it. Meryl Streep is a great actress. The film was Okay. She was great though. The most interesting thing for me was the fashions that kept flashing before my eyes.. those bags, scarves, and faux minks she kept throwing over the sec's desk every morning. Did she ever wear anything twice at all? There was the cameo appearance of Valentino during Paris Fashion week.I really like Valentino, His designs are so elegant and functional even on the catwalk. On the whole, I shant be watching it again for a long time.
PS Anne Hathaway is divinely beautiful...that full mouth..luscious

Totally agree with u muda about Craig and lack of high tech paraphernalia(i guess this was to symbolize the fact that it was adapted from the first Flemming Bond novel albeit being a remake).
The only good part was the opening chase.....and ofcourse the secene where Mr Bond was being totured...u had to be only James Bond to sustain such pain in the #!@$% and not pass out at once.

Boy, there are so much movies to be seen these days, Stomp the yard that will be a bomb, i think they have finally figured out a movie that will beat You Got Served. I saw the preview and i went completely berserk. Ne-Yo is in the movie too. There is another movie by Mario (da let me luv u guy?) about some brutal violent college students who were tamed by their Literature/English teacher i think?!! The movie is highly inspirational, it trades in the same paces like the movie Dangerous Minds? its called Freedom Writers.

Yes, the Departed has been nominated in the following categories:

Best actor in a supporting role: Mark Wahlberg.
I hope he gets it, I liked him in Planet of the Apes and The Perfect Storm. Eddie Murphy has also been nominated in this category for his role in 'Dream girls'

Best Directed film or achievement in direction

Best Edited film

Best Motion Picture

Best Adapted Screenplay

Five nominations...must be a must see film. Martin Scorsese is the director right?? Its no wonder.

Yes Martin Scorsese is the Director.The guys' good.
I'm kind of afraid if the movie'll be good one.Usually when there are too many 'superstar' actors in one movie it isn't always good.Nevertheless i believe it will be very good.
Jamie Fox fa?Any grand nominations?Should we expect tears again? :'(

There's a movie about Muhammed Ali the boxer.I think Will Smith was the actor of the movie.

Post by: *~MuDa~* on February 11, 2007, 10:16:28 AM
Ali is the name of the movie, Will Smith had to actually train for months in the art of boxing like the great legend and builds his body shape too, with the exact weight and hairstyle and everything, its one of his best movies in history u know, they had to travel down to congo to shoot some major parts of the movie with Foreman during Mobutus regime who almost kicked the A** of Ali. I almost dropped a tear. It was so real, they were even speaking lingala (the congolese local language fluently too) men, Michael Mann and Jon Peters did a wonderful job, they had to make sure that will smith spent approximately one year learning all aspects of Ali's life. Thats serious dnt u think?

Ni the thing that caught my attention was the golden raspberries award for worst movie and worst actress.
The worst movie is Basic instinct II.The first movie chipped in some $79mill while the latest one managed to get $6mill.
The worst supporting actress award went to Sharon Stone for acting in the worst movie.Waiting 14 yrs to re-live the pleasure she had in acting alongside Micheal Douglas.Shame on her  ::)

Abin kama caca ne GGNK. Look at Sylvester Stallone's 7th rocky movie. It did very well at the Box office. Ko da yake baka hada shi da Sharon stone ba. Ita ma kanta wasnt a good actress i think, otherwise we woluld have heard of her many many times after Basic Instinct. That is one film I still havent watched. Kuma dai, it was really her looks and the fact that there was something unsavory that occurred in the movie that got ppl's attentions that made the first BI a   money netter at the box office. It probably had nothing to do with story line or acting ability if u take out the perrenial michael douglas. Koda yake shi ma he was involved in some bombs. There was a Hitchcock remake with Michael Douglas, Viggo Mortensen and a famous actress whose name or face, I dont remember. It bombed at the box office.  oh oh oh I think the actress was Kim Bassinger!!

I have quite a few of those "I iz been to Europe friends" and on onces return, he gave me a movie for a gift. I taught nice try: I was hoping for some Jimmy Choos. Anyway it turned out; I loved the movie. "SMOKING ACES". That movie is deeeeeeeeeep. (nasan kun kalla yan turai ;D) just allow the likes of me to drool overrit. Like I was saying: casting with the likes of Ben Affleck, Ray Liotta, Andy Garcia, Jason Bateman, Alicia Keys, and plenty of other familiar faces made the movie all more interesting even though the killings were so brutal. The whole FBI briefings filling in the audience and their agents on some of the players they're about to face, building to the inevitable chaos of competing groups all coming together on Piven and his legion of bodyguards, for promises of fresh mints showed a dazzling display of carnage and comedy coupled with cool suprises. I loved it!!

Again, I love horror films & I got another movie souvenir & Lord did it get me spooked!!!! "THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE" Dangggggggg, knowing it happened in real life.

During my young days, I was the biggest couch potato ever, I use to sit and watch movie after movie! Yes! "The Roots"that movie, am not gonna lie, lol anytime I watch that movie it just makes me pro-xenophobic. I have the  complete collection. Charlie Chaplin's series? Anybody remember :-X? "The Dukes of Hazzard"? Bo and Duke Luke racing around in the 1969 Dodge Charger? :-X Dallas? Anyone? :-\ I guess am the only "cave woman here". Anyway good times - movies & series of "back then" were simply the best!

"Dirty Dancing" da one with Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Da soundtrack is really good. Remember da lame quote?

I am into romantic comedies. Loved pretty woman. Love Brigitte Jones' diary plus edge of reason. I must say not every romantic comedy is good. 'How to lose a guy in ten days' was booooooooooooooooooring!! But 'my best friend's wedding' was very touching. Its the kind of ending that doesnt leave u with a feel good feeling. I dont want to watch it again. :-\
Four weddings and a funeral...was very funny. I didnt like whats her name? in the lead role though. Notting Hill was too hyped. Didnt enjoy it as much, and I positively hated 'Closer' although it was not a romantic comedy. It was too........ not what I expected :-\

I liked "My bestfriend's wedding" especially da soundtrack: Diana King's version of Dionne Warwick's

"Say a little Prayer." I liked Notting Hill, Bridgette Jones and Four weddings and a funeral. They were

really good. But i agree some of the new movies produced are a waste of time. My all time favourites:



~ HiTcH
(Will Smith and Eva Mendes)


~ 50 Firt Dates
(Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore)


~ Music and Lyrics
(Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore)


~ The Break Up
(Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn) Probably da most realistic story. Not a happily ever after one, but you'll really like it. I assure u  :)



These two are not really comedy, more of drama.

~ The Notebook
(Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling)


~ The Lake House
(Sandra Bullock and Keanu Reeves)


If you want a good laugh...
~ My Super Ex-Girlfriend
(Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson) Not a very good plot but it's a very refreshing movie :) :) :)

Hey guys, just watching LOST for the first time (Season 1).



Lost is good  :). Did you like it? I started watching it sometime ago

but i stopped after a while. It requires too much commitment. There

are too many stories going on in one show and if u miss one episode,

u'd be lost cos its hard to trace a character's story. But if you have

da time, then it's a very good thriller. Shud be up to season 3 by now.

Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: Dan-Borno on March 20, 2007, 11:33:54 AM
Tee, yap, i took my time to watch the whole episodes
Season 1 - 3, its great.
But I must confess - Aikin Yahudawa ne
just to robb us of our precious time.

However I enjoyed it.

Which episode did you last watch?
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: gogannaka on March 22, 2007, 08:12:51 PM
Hmm,Danborno those series will chop up your time.
I remembered when i used to watch 'days of our lives' it was so interesting untill i realised that the program is not progressing in any way.I found out that the whole 30 mins or so i've watched could be squeezed up and played in 5 mins.I decided from then that its over.How can one useless director hold me to ransom forcing me to watch a non progressing soap(made for housewives i bet).I stopped.
Once i was watching the tv after about 5 yrs of stopping and i saw that the thing was still running and i saw they were at episode two thousand plus.All i cud say was 'poor viewers'  :(

But i beleive there are some new short lived and interesting series that modern producers make. '24' for instance,'HOUSE', 'CSI' are quite interesting i've heard.

This lost is it action?romance?commedy or sci-fi?

I stopped since the frist season. Remember the Episode where Dr. Shephard

(I think that's his name, the character played by Matthew Fox??) Anyway,

the episode where he was going to amputate Boone's leg with pieces of the

aircraft. I couldn't stand the thought of it. To make it worse, that was the

episode where Claire had to give birth; there was no midwife, Jack was busy

trying to save Boone's life and besides he was a surgeon not an OB-GYN, the

environment was not sterile...So many things going on in that episode I just

couldn't stand it anymore. I just stopped watching it from then. I know a lot

has happened since then and maybe even if i try to watch it again i might not

understand. Then again, it's my fault for being a bit over-sensitive  :(  :(  :(

Project Runway is a good one. I think it's one of the best reality shows ever.

I used to be so into sewing sometime ago and watching project runway was

like a wake-up-call. It reminded me how much fun sewing was and how innovative

a person can be. Great show!




But i beleive there are some new short lived and interesting series that modern producers make. '24' for instance,'HOUSE', 'CSI' are quite interesting i've heard.




I think HOUSE is the best medical drama ever produced. Definitely my number one

series. The content, characters everything is just so different. Dr. House has the

best dry - sarcastic sense of humour in show biz. I can't even describe it - just watch it.

Back to movies, i saw "Freedom Writers' sometime ago. I give it 4.5 stars

out of 5! Da movie was great and very realistic. It was about racism, very

heavy subject, but it is one of those stimulating self-sacrifice and selfless

movies that would get you thinking. I always wondered why Hilary Swank

won da best actress Oscar twice. I thought she didnt deserve it, but this

movie shows that she might just need one more academy award  8)  8)  8)

hum...i got uodated on some movies i was long waiting for. I just saw 300, damn...u guys need to go grab urselves one quick-quick, the movie is perfect, check out the 3D speccial effects and slow motions, those are actually the things that kill me in movies, the movies is it. Gerald Butler was also the perfect ideal character to play king Leonidas or Sparta. The only mistakes was their depictions of the persian army which shows them as monster like creatures...especially the immortals army. I think it shud be the best action movie if only Ghostrider is actually wut people think it is cause i havent seen that one yet.

At last i saw Stomp The Yard, the movie is good, but i was really hoping that it will beat 'You Got Served' but it didnt, it almost, steppin' is good actually, they revolutionalised it in the movie, but i didnt like the fraternity and sorority ideas, its creepy.

I also saw The fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, they tried, the drift thing is very entertaining and breath taking, they messed up the story when one of the character died..Han, i got angry. But still 2Fast 2Furious is still the best The Fast and The Furious movie, Infact the best car racing movie, if u havent seen that one yet u need to go and see it right now.

The last i saw was the Covenant, i knew that movie was a bomb since the first tym i saw it on Box Office, damn, the film is ill. Check out the effects in the movie, and the scene when calebs car get gtrashed with a lorry scatters in pieces and returns immediately to normal. That was really gud.

Mudacris, really? I thought Stomp the Yard was so much better than

You got served. It definitely had more story, introduced a new concept

to dance movies and definitely put a whole new perspective to black

 movies. You know when poeple watch african american movies they

expect to see druggies and people with no future. Stomp the yard changes

all that doesn't it? It was definitely entertaining.


Tokyo Drift is another one. I think it's only good for people that like

Japanese pop - culture. Strange people like me. I enjoyed the movie,

especially the soundtrack by Teriyaki Boyz (How cliche! Japan - teriyaki?)

But true i thought the movie was good and funny. Plus it's not like all

those boring racing car movies (& games) it introduces a new concept of

drifting. P.S. This is off topic, but have you tried Drifting on Need for Speed

Carbon?? Da hardest thing ever!

Did u see the riches n beautiful women given to that treator, wat is that tryin 2 say hurul-khain? the immortals u r talkin about are Angels. even though in the old version of the movie I think is call Spartern cant remember, there are immortals but they are shown as human but really strong thats y they are regard as immortals.

I mean come on, this is not a horror movie nor is it a movie about black magic or supernatural.
The best bit was when that fat black guy said he'd had 2000 hrs of piloting a plane and it turned out that it was with a digital game simulator!! That was really hilarious.. the best bit in the movie for me.

No no no IBB u got it all wrong, did u really watched the movie? That is a portrayal of true history of sparta u know, it happened at the batlle of Thermopilae, with 300 soldiers against 10, 000. That is exactly how some persian generals carry themselves...ba ma sai mun je nisa ba, have u forgotten Fir'aun? Ramses II? He did worsed than Xerxes did in sparta, infact Ramses II executed all that failed to recognise his position as whatever.

In this film how ever, the flaw in the movie was how the y depicted the persian army, they kind of gave them monstrous looks and tendencies, whereas persians are humans, they are the present Iranians, however, Iran have banned the viewing and selling of the movie 300 in its lands headed by president Mahmmood Ahmadinejad himself. But they are not trying to portray God, its just history!

Yeah sartse was a good one. I still have the soundtrack tape somewhere.

Listened to it so many times it's begging for mercy. Many of those old movies

were good. Maybe it should have a 10th anniversary remake cos now they've

got better visual and sound quality. Wouldn't that be good?

Has anyone seen Gidauniya?? It's a bit old (about 2-3 yrs ago) but it's so good! Not to

mention funny ;D ;D Definitely a must watch. Then there's Tubali - another old one.

Garwashi, Mashi, Sansani, Khusufi, Gyale, Rawani etc, cant remember most of them.

For the more recent ones - Gara, Buki Budiri, Maliya, Haraba, Harafin So, Fati, Sanafahana.

In the program they were gisting about this very same problem of when u cant have access to the remote control to watch what u want!  so someone has devised a simple gadget that is fiixed somewhere in the room unknown to anyone  that hijacks the remote control hahahahaha!!

Hola! I know this may sound childish but i cant help it...am CRAZY about animations, and yesterday, just yesterday i stumbled upon a DVD at my cousins' with 7 movies and in it i saw...and behold there it was...Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the movie!!!!

Men...i was so shocked, a while a go i heard the rumour that it was on project but i t completly skidded my mind. Well i started watching it and i can only describe it in two words...Jaw-Dropping. Honestly, u have to see the action in it, 3D special effects, beautiful melodious background sound during several scenes and the story is just sumthing, seriously, if u are really down for action animations and cartoon, (though its not a cartoon this time, its an animation like Shrek, SharkTale and Finding Nemo), You really gotta go see this one, i promise you, you would not regret it! Hola!

Watch tsartse.One of the best hausa movie i have watched.It's old fa amma but its great.




Has anyone seen Gidauniya?? It's a bit old (about 2-3 yrs ago) but it's so good! Not to

mention funny ;D ;D Definitely a must watch. Then there's Tubali - another old one.

Garwashi, Mashi, Sansani, Khusufi, Gyale, Rawani etc, cant remember most of them.

For the more recent ones - Gara, Buki Budiri, Maliya, Haraba, Harafin So, Fati, Sanafahana.

Speaking about Hausa films, is it true Dan Wanzam and Tsigai died a month ago? Haven't

been in the loop for a while...


It is true Tsigai died some weeks ago in a motor accident along Kano-Kaduna road. I don't know about Dan Wanzam. As for good hausa films, Fateez had mentioned excellent ones. Though she left out one of my old favourites, SUTURA. Excellent movie.  8) I strongly recommend it. For recent ones, Garnakaki, Babban Gari, 419 etc. Though I must confess that a lot of trash movies are being chunned out these days.

Oh yeah! Sutura was good. Can't believe i left it out. It's always good to wait

until someone recommends a movie b4 u watch it. But sometimes you can tell

if the movie is going to be good from the producers and cast.

You're right. I remember I used to wait until the likes of 2-Effects , FKD, Sarauniya or HRB releases a movie before buying. All that has gone now somehow. There are just too many producers around. And that explains the abundance of useless films these days.

"Let no joyful voice be heard!

The Kraken!"




I just saw Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and it was soooooooooooo good!!! Anyone seen it?

I know a lot of people had mixed reactions to it, but for me it was grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreat!!!!!!!!!

I don't wanna give away too much. Sad but wonderful twist at the end! It kind of ended up being a love

story for Davey Jones...(I know...eeeeeeeeew!). But yup, Davey Jones and his crew are back as disgusting

as ever! I think I might just lay off the seafood for a while... But yeah, Pirates 3, I recommend...could turn

out to be da new Romeo and Juliet! Who would've thought an ordinary Disney Land ride would inspire such

a great movie trilogy?

Well me am anticipating someting new and different, sorry its animation again but its cherishable by everyone...did anybody heard of 'Shrek The Third' yet?

A disappointment! Seriously? I enjoyed every single minute of it. Can't get enough

of Jack Sparrow. But then again, maybe my sense of humour is different. I guess

people always expect it to be a happy ending. I love the way the story was twisted.

I always thought there was something fishy about that Tia Dalma lady. She just knew

way too much about da whole Davey Jones story.

Yeah meeting was hilarious! I get confused. was it 9 pieces of 8 or 8 pieces of 9?

I think u wud've enjoyed it more if you had seen 1 and 2. 1 didn't have much

to the story but part 2 and da whole spirit of the sea and Calypso story wud

make more sense if u'd seen da part 2. Amira and Bakan Gizo, part 2 is just as

funny as part 3. But all in all it was a good movie. I want more of Jack Sparrow!

Da one with da headless horseman. watched it but a long time ago tho. He

was a weirdo...Hehe. Anyways, I find the real life Johnny Depp really boring

but his characters in films are wonderful. Have you seen Chocolat? My best

Johnny Depp role is Jack Sparrow and as weird as it may sound - Willy Wonka.

Are u talking about the film Chacolat with juliette Binoche or Charlie and Chocolate factory? Johnny Depp appeared in both films. I have watched Chacolat and for the life of me couldnt see what the brouhaha over the film was all about. It was just the same with that Fabulous Destiny of Amelie or some such title.. that french film starring Audrey Tatou. I am sure u must know it since u like foreign films.I simply didnt gel with either film. Maybe cos i was expecting something and I got something else. At anyrate I watched Amelie again a second time and I liked it much better then, but just...

Another mind game i just seen is Cube II, what a thrill!

I think why Angier happened to be the villain is because he is obsessed with taking revenge probably Borden wasnt sure of the knot he tied. I think the the idea of the firm is to caution one agains obsession

Go ahead and watch the  Davinci code. There is nothing blasphemous about it. I Havent read the book nor watched the film either, but it is just espousing western religious creeds. Remember that the Jesus christ the christians aspire to is not the same as the jesus that muslims aspire to. So there cant be any blasphemy if u dont equate the christian version of jesus with the islamic version.

If u just look at every film from a detached point of view especially the blasphmous ones, they wont have any impact on ur thoughts. Keanu has become a fav actor of mine also, ever since I first saw him in speed. There is something so irresistible about him.

No HUsnaa, dont be too quick to judge, there is so much Blasphemy. But the movie is also quite nice. I read the book its like 3 times better than the movie and I read the actual book dan brown made his book upon. i.e Holy blood and Holy Grail, its an incredible and intelligent assumption which everyone knows to be a lie. Quite convincing too.

Well I got a few movies here, mostly classical but definately worth watching. Armageddon, A beautiful mind, Sweet November, The Notebook, Scent of a woman, The wedding Singer, I wont make the list long so one more... lord of the rings

Lol Muda! What inquisitiveness!!  ;D
Keanu Reeves? I dont know.... I think it is in my subconscious somehow. Has to do with my adolescence.. He looks like someone I used to like I think  ;D

Quote from: ibro2g
o HUsnaa, dont be too quick to judge, there is so much Blasphemy.

Hmm....... OK I concede the point. I will get th book and the film and see both. But I cant honestly think that there is as much blasphemy as there is in the satanic verses or the cartoons. These have become my standards for judging blasphemy in books and films. Even the devil's advocate was innocent as far as I am concerned. Mind u I have not seen the cartoons or read salman rushdies satanic verses and I have no wish to, for fear of contamination.
I have watched a beautiful mind...and it is a beautiful movie...brilliant simply brilliant. I heard that John Nash once gave a lecture somewhere in a southeast asian city and not a single person understood completely what he was on about.. that is how brilliant he is. One of my former professors whose area of  expertize was on Voronoi triangles, once told us an anecdote on how he went to a conference  organized by some mathematical society and one of the other genius professors was giving a paper talking about the 16th dimension or something like that. He said no one understood a thing throughout the presentation....hahahaha!!

Lord of the rings?? Brilliant simply brilliant. Peter Jackson wants the rights for the Hobbit so he can film that one too. But he has been refused. Crazy isnt it? Anyway I have read the hobbit.. Took it off the professor I was talking about earlier and read the book. Its tough going. In the end it is interesting, but its made me realize that I couldnt have read JRR Tolkien's trilogy even if I had wanted to, and believe me, I'd been seeing them in my old school library since I was 12 yrs old, and yet I'd always thought of them as science fiction in the genre of ASIMOV (what's his first name?) So I never read them. Funnily enough even though the films are hugely successful, I havent heard of a revival of the books as best sellers or everyone's cup of tea.. they are just too literary  and not in the easy going style of JK Rawlings's Harry Potter. My Prof was also telling me that JRR Tolkien was a bosom buddy of CS Lewis who wrote the Narnia Chronicles.. Now those are a set of books that I have read every single one when I was  12 or 14 and I still love them. I read them when I get the chance still.

Anyone read the novel "Clan of The Cave Bear"? Not really a classic as such, but very interesting indeed. Set during the glacial/prehistoric era, the book was on about the evolution of the "present" humans, and the resultant generic and physical conflict between the modern human and the cave man (early man, if you like). I was told it was made into a film but I haven't seen it.

I was told it was made into a film but I haven't seen it.

I have read clan of the cave bear. Long time ago also. Its the story of a human girl who became the 'wife' of an australopethecus or what ever the early non homosapiens are called... oh a homo erectus, I think that is what they were. She wasnt accepted in the clan because she was hairless or something like that, and I think in the end she gave birth to a child that was half homo sapien and half erectus and then at the end of the book she meets a human like herself. Very fanciful novel, but very interesting like u said BK.

Who's read 'the temple of my familiar?' This is a very very obscure novel by the author of the color purple, (Alice Walker I think is her name) Its really heady and heavy, but as u get tucked into it, it becomes unputdownable. Its so weird and strange that I dont even know how to tell the story.. except to say its about this woman who believes herself to be a reincarnation  of several ppl and creatures in different time periods and she intertwines her present life with her past lives in a strange concoction.. really weird and non filmable I think unlike the color purple.

Who has read Alan Quatermain  By (am.... cant remember his name)... same guy who wrote 'king solomon's mines'.. I think films like indiana jones Congo and all those fanciful treasure hunting films were based on books like alan quatermain and king solomon's mines. Very interesting book. There is this very interesting film called 'SHE'. I think the same author as Alan Quatermain wrote the novel 'She' and it was made into a film. It used to be one of my favorite childhood films. It is also about a secret kingdom ruled by an immortal woman who'd lived since the times of the ancient egyptians or longer and she is kept young and beautiful by bathing in a fire  that lights up once every how many yrs was it?? Gosh its been a long while!!!! So one day these ppl who were also treasure hunters stumbled upon the hidden passage to the kingdom and get inside. One of the men looked like a former lover of hers whom she presumably killed off because he was unfaithful or something like that (maybe) so being a wicked woman anyway, she kills his fiancee by feeding her to crocodiles or having her thrown into a pit full of something horrible. Then she hypnotizes the man into falling in love with her and then she shows him her secret of immortal life and nearly initiates him into immortality. However his friends I think come just in time to rescue him and stop the fire appearing that one time. Thus the queen then disintegrates into a hag and then into a skeleton which crumbles to the ground... and that was the end of her reign of terror. The actress who played her was not Raquel welch but am oh..... what's her name? that woman who was in Dr. NO? So very very beautiful.... cant remember her name... its been such a long time. I remember........URSULA ANDRESS One of the most beautiful women of her generation.....

Of course those movie are worth watching, i have seen Armageddon like 30 tyms over and over again cause the movie is so incredible, and the cast is just terrific, a block buster for that matter, not to talk of the dialogues will smith and co were spitting, the songs and everything in the movie, suspense and action...well it has been one of my top notch movies ever since...its a pity i dont have a copy now....lol

A beautiful mind, is just a beautiful film, the story of JOhn Nash remaked in cinema, and Russel Crow was incredible, he was so real, all that schizophrenia thing, he acted well, the film was so moving u know, very emotional, almost got tears in my eyes...lol!

Sweet November, i wont even comment....Keanu reeve did it again...so u know my mind.

The wedding singer is very funny, the story was also a bit touchy and humorous, but wait....wuts up with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore making romantic movies always? They dating or what?

The songtrack for the movie armaggeddon ('dont wanna miss a thing' by aerosmith) was to me better than the film itself, though never watched it from beginning to end. I  listened to some documentary about Aerosmith on BBC Radio 4 about a yr or so ago ( they were celebrating something.. reunion or some such) and I heard that the director of the film armaggeddon made Steve Tyler watch clips of his daughter in the film where she was like crying or emoting over her screen dad Bruce Willis (he died in the film I think) and it was so emotional for him that he went and put his soul in the song and made a great track out of it.

I saw a really good French movie called the apartment. Its very good, but its very frustrating also. Not the language... there is subtitiles, but the way it ended. One doesnt know whether to curse the director or not...
Die Hard 1 was the best of the three. I always tell myself that if u can be totally absorbed in a movie on a 14 inch screen then the movie is outstanding. I totally went to town on it on my 14 inch tv. Enjoyed it massively and really grew to like Alan Rickman. A great great actor. Too bad he never really made it in Hollywood.

Please let me know if you'd want me to upload the song in question for ya.And yeah,Steven cudda been Jagger's lost twin brother.They have more in common than abundance of lips;both are eccentric and equally ridiculously talented.And oh,"I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" was my jam!

did u know that Liv Tyler is the daughter of the lead singer of Aerosmith (Steve Tyler)... She is so beautiful and he is so.... mick jagger!!  ;D ;D ;D

The songtrack for the movie armaggeddon ('dont wanna miss a thing' by aerosmith) was to me better than the film itself, though never watched it from beginning to end. I  listened to some documentary about Aerosmith on BBC Radio 4 about a yr or so ago ( they were celebrating something.. reunion or some such) and I heard that the director of the film armaggeddon made Steve Tyler watch clips of his daughter in the film where she was like crying or emoting over her screen dad Bruce Willis (he died in the film I think) and it was so emotional for him that he went and put his soul in the song and made a great track out of it. Its become one of my all time favorites.. just LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE that track!!!


I wasn't gonna post in this thread and then I saw Steven Tyler,and I decided I just so had ta.Alright,excuse the paralax,depending on your prism of vision,of course.Anyway,there's this song P!nk did with Steven called "Misery" and it just rocks.It's very blue,very soulful,very sad.It's on P!nk's acclaimed sophomore  CD Missundaztod,which I happen to love too.I was totally in to it during my "saddidy" era,as I un-fondly termed it,a couple of months back.*Sad times*. Please let me know if you'd want me to upload the song in question for ya.And yeah,Steven cudda been Jagger's lost twin brother.They have more in common than abundance of lips;both are eccentric and equally ridiculously talented.And oh,"I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing" was my jam!



What is yr saddidy era? (anything to to with Pdiddy?  ;D ;D ;D ) Would it have anything to do with yr sabbatical?

Please load it up by all means. I am sure we are all ears.....

 I'm shocked! This is so un- Steve Tyler like!! Its a really nice song, but honestly does nothing for me. I prefer to hear the blues and soul from the likes of Aretha Franklin Roberta Flack Whitney Houston Millie Jackson etc . Their voices are more raw. But u know what? a song just steals upon u when u least expect it. So I expect its like that.
Actually there is a song called Pink by Aerosmith and I thought u were referring to that one. That's more up his alley. Good track also.

See what I mean? That story na Alti da aljanni is really the story of king Midas, from which story we got the phrase 'the Midas touch'.... the king who when he touches everything, it turns to gold, and eventually he forgot and touched his much loved daughter and she turned to gold and he regretted his greed.

I know you're right. I have this book "Great Short Stories of the World". It is a collection of close to 1000 short stories, taken from different parts of the world. I actually picked some fairy tales and stories from some european countries, written  in the 18th century that bears strong resemblance to some stories in the magana jari.

OKAY Ms mid 70s/late 80s/early 90s.I understand your nostalgia over the music of yester years,which ,perhaps got your groove on to.You 70s heads are not open to new things because you are so convinced that nothing could top what you perceived as the epitome of kool from your era.But this is the new wave.Just get in,fit in.Just kidding.But seriously,you need to embrace new artists,and I'm not talking about booty-shaking Beyonce, hip-wriggling Shakira or can't-hit-a-note-to-save-her-life Rihanna or Janet's-Rythym-Nation-biting Ciara.I'm talking about serious talent like Alicia Keys,Alice Smith,Norah Jones,John Mayer,John Legend,Robin Thicke and Corinne Bailey Raeto mention but a few.And speaking of Ms Rae,here's a couple of songs from her eponymous debut I uploaded for your listening.You should love her.She's not a vocal powerhouse like Mariah or Whitney but she gets the job done.Her voice is elegantly simple,and her lyrics are precise and honest.And uplifting too.I don't swear by her album but every now and then I groove to it,especially when I'm in good spirit.Again,let me know what you think of the songs.In addition to that,I'll upload songs from other artists I mentioned earlier for you too,for free,of course.Lol..

Well you know what they say; each to his own  ;D ;D ;D

Anyway, I'm not really stuck in any generation of music. I am like a scavenger when it comes to music (I pick the left overs hahahaha) I am not picky or choosy. I hardly buy music I only listen from other ppl's collections or streamed from the internet and I like everything that I like. I easily get bored looking at music video clips. If I diss someone, its because I have not made a concerted effort to listen to their music enough for it to grow on me.

Oh I hate rap.
I'll listen to those tracks when I get time.  :)

Never heard of the film.

I've never been a fan of TV Series, as I don't have the time/patience to be following a program every week for months. But I must confessed I got hooked on Prison Break, which I watched on DVD. I'm on the second season. Anyone know when the third season would be out? And can somebody recommend another of such movies? Words are that Lost, 24, Gray's Anatomy are equally good. I doubt if they'd be as good as Prison break.

Haba, its really a good movie, i have been watching it since i was a kid, anyone who is into Cartoons and knows Superman, Spiderman, X-men should definately know Transformers, the thing is that i met a couple of people who kept on bragging to me that they have seen the movie and its highly entertaining [a blockbuster if u know what i mean].

Yeah those american soaps u mentioned are quite entertaining u know, sun hadu sosai, but u wount believe this me am so into Desperate Housewives, the soap is just so thrilling, i have seen all three seasons. Am desprately waiting for the Fourth season! Before i forget, there is this soap i really love but i couldnt find the DVDs, "Fashion House", do anybody know about this soap?

BKGZ try 24 it's very nice. I've not watched a complete episode amma dai its as gripping as Prison break.
I know an army Captain who use to dodge office to come back home to watch 24. He tells his C.O that he has running stomach and needs to go home.
My only problem with 24 din shine it has like 9 seasons now.Too long.

Shi kuma wani Major that i gave prison break came to my house 12.30 am to collect the second season of prison break. He said he couldn't sleep without watching the 2nd season.
I heard that the 3rd season premiered on 27th august.I can't wait to see it.

That had me laughing ;D Gaskiya such films are really gripping. I remember when I gave my colleage prison break, he got hooked to wtaching it on his pc so much so that he couldn't do anything in the office, he stopped going home for lunch, har ma matarshi ta fara fada ;D

I would try the 24. But as you say, 9 seasons is bit too much. Yaushe mutum zai gama? How many episodes are there per season. Like there are 22 or 23 per season in prison break.

I put it on sometimes but i have to say, it is highly immoral.
That show is totally rude and should stop being brodcasted.
Imagine showing the housemates taking showers or using the toilet and i heard there were 'near sex' scenes showed.

To add salt to injury kuma wai har akwai wani BBA2 uncut version da ake nuna wa.
Don't let your kids watch.

Aha. My next should be Desp. Housewives then. So LOST is also good kenan?

Lost is good too. Maybe you'll enjoy it better than desperate housewives cos it's action packed.
Some even say that it is sweeter than prison break.Amma dai ba haka bane  ;)

You should also consider House, a medical drama.
Prison break i've lost track of that, i havent even finshed watching season2 and now theres season3 which also looks good. what happened to Linc and LJ??? what bout tea bag dat nasty guy.

Its really interesting, i havent seen it for a while now, its all about boxing Challenges, where groups of people are divided into 2 seperate rival teams locked for sometime in a training center and fighting on the ring. I had to remember 'Rocky Balboa'...infact Sylvester Stallone is the executive producer of the programme.

I just saw Tyler Perry's 'Why Did I Get Married'.It's a funny,romantic take,with a few rough edges,typical conventional family/marital stereotypes.I think it's fun,and decently entertaining,but then again I wasn't expecting a more artistic leap from Mr Perry.It's not that movie you'd gladly sell your clothes to sit front row at the theatre but it's fun enough.Honestly.Janet Jackson(who did a great job) is in the movie,and Jill Scott(whom I'm a huge fan of) is in it too.Speaking of Jill,she's got a new amazing album (entitled The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3) which came out last week.Y'all might wanna check on it..

i am sure if i watch ratatouille i shall like it. there is something crazy about a rat that can summon a flambe or a soufle out of thin air... its the feel good about underdog makes good that will make the movie enjoyable for me.

Hmmm, what movies have I watched since I last signerd in?

Rush Hour 3

Not much story but it was hilarious!!! Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker never fail me.

The cab driver Yvan Attal was really funny too though too bad he opnly had a minor role


Chak De! India

Probably one of the best movies that have come out of India in a long long time!

Wonderful theme, wonderful story, great acting, really funny and thankfully, no love story!


The Simpsons Movie

Funny! I dont even know what part I liked the most but every bit was just good

even though it felt like an extended episode of The Simpson's TV show. I liked

the joke in the beginning about idiots that pay to watch movies in theatres when

they could just watch it on TV... hmmmmmm.


Hairspray

If you love Musicals or Retro then hairspray is just for you. The songs are so

contagious and the movie is just hilarious! I still laugh when I remember the scenes.

Plus John Travolta as a Woman?... enough said!


Stardust

It's the best movie I have seen since Pride and Prejudice! I'm serious this movie

is a must see for everyone. Star studded cast! Plus Robert De Niro! He was funny!

Anyone here seen it??

Well what a coincidence!
Yesterday, we were discussing the Simpsons. You know it is highly controversial program, from the muslims' and moralists point of views. There was an article about the one eye which mentioned Simpsons with respect to free masonry. Actually it was one program (quite funny i might add, but highly blasphemous) in which Homer was initiated as a stone cutter in otherwords a free mason and he was found to have a symbolic sign on his anatomy which made the other members regard him as a deity. That is probably a one off situation. On the other hand, the chief reason for why the simpsons is frowned upon by (probably the generality of muslims...maybe.. dont know) is because it implicitly implies an anarchic family setting in which the family is run by the kids and not the parents. The messages are sometimes subtle and sometimes blunt, but nevertheless they affect children any which way and make them think that it is cool to be rude, obnoxious and horrid to one's parents, while we know that is a crime in islam.
Like u said kuma, it is rude and explicit. Like everything else nowaday the more recent the times the cruder and explicit everything is.

Turawa sun yaye wa mutunci hijabin sa.
So personally, I wouldnt advice you watching the simpsons yrself let alone with yr kids.

Wow, i really use to like the simpsom alot. the only thing i hated about it was the freemasonry episode and theme though it was funny really.

As a kid, well on my own part i coudnt emulate what bart simpsons was up to or how he talks back to adults just cause i'm a huge fan, i mean, even if i wanted to, the recollect of the kind of beatings and thrashings i received during my 'denis de menance days' will immediately flash before my eyes, so i wouldnt dare. So i guess kids that would actually pick up habbits from this cartoon are either not well disciplined or very very immitative. and if at all a cartoon needs to be banned i think we should all vote for Southpark!!!

I have seen Pursuit of Happiness, will smith is an icon really, he is got charisma more than all the actors in holywood, if you are a Will Smith fan, then watch out for his new movie... I Am Legend, i saw the movie, some sort of sim city computer graphics, simply wicked!

Yeah, i almost forgot, i saw Bride and Prejudice, its a very nice movie, so how do we categorised it, Indian or British movie, cause if Indian then sunyi bala'in kokari. Peace out!

The Big Brother Africa 2 just ended yesterday Sunday
and  as expected, Richard won the $100,000 US beating
the two female housemates Nigerian Offuneka and Angolas
Tatiana.

Its isnt over yet, Richard while in the house, fell in love
with Tatiana, and in fact illicit acts transpired between
the two.

He is now out, his wife is there, Tatiana is also there, and
he has promised Tatiana something.....

If you were his wife, what will you do? considering that he
has won the $100,000.00.

Has anyone watched the uncut version of the show?Naked scenes of the housemates and some acts of sex.
I strongly condemn that show.

What i would like to see is Richard's wife,after selling everything in the house as Ummutameem suggested,suing his A$$ and getting all the $100k.

Thank God we are not arguing of the immorality of the
programme but the lessons learnt in it.  Before the so
called programme starts, the contestant have under
gone so many screening(s) and finally, a consent form
was given to them to read and sign if they agree to
the terms and conditions of the live programme.

Richard and wife read thoroughly read and understands
the implication of this type of show, as they must have
seen such before, so, why going to court?

      Dama anyi Big Brother Africa ne?Anyways,if i was the wife,ill probably do one of these two:

1) I might decide to leave him even before he wins the money.After everything he has done on tv for the world to see.It is embarrassing.If i cannot stand the heat,i'll pack my bags and move on because even if we both agreed that he was going to be on that show,we did not agree upon him misbehaving in there.
                                                       OR
2)When he wins before i leave the house,ill stay.We will celebrate and we will spend that money together.I will buy what ever i want and i will make him buy me what ever i want.As for his girlfriend,i dont care.She is probably feeling her purse too.It is more of get as much as you can.But once the money is no more,i will pack my things and go.He wont be worth my time again.Never again.That way,i wont be at the losing end.No 2 - 0 for me!

Its not about a monster emmerging out of the blue or from a stray corner no. its about pain, watching a human goind through sever self amputation with vicious implements or devices specifically constructed for that purpose. The movie had to be toned down 7 times to obtain the "R" rating. Its sick men you got to watch it.

Kai!!! Malam! Where did you sprung from??? Where have you been men? Haka akeyi kawai sai ka bata just like that? Men am both so shoked and happy to see you around. So what can you say about the new kanoonline and its members ehn? ..lol!

@ Muhsin, well like Husnaa said, its not like i only watch movies all the times, infact i only watch movies when am at home, and i have lived most of my last four years in school, so i resorted to watch the blockbusters so i can keep the pace and be current, and i'm lucky i get to see most of this movie in my house whenever i go home. But you know its better reading than watching actually you know, i think watching qualifies what you read, it gives you a pictorial impression of the characters and scenes in a book, take a look at the Harry Potter Series, i read all of them except the Chamber of Secrets, but then i still had to watch the movies so i can have a face for each character in order to give him/her an identity. But i have always thought Snape would look almost exactly like Rickman due to the way the writer of the novel J.K.ROWLINGS gave him a perfect describtion.

Anyway, today i bought three movies, Transformers, NIght at the Museum and Ultraviolet. YOu would not believe that me whom lust for good films have never bought a single movie in my life, not to talk of a music video, but i do buy a lot of audio CDs, well today i broke that jinx. Transformers i have seen already, but i want to see it again and i fell in love with the background sounds of the movie. But the other two movies i have not watched; how e go be now? i have seen Night at the Museum one time in box office.  I liked it. But i havent seen ultra violet...its Mila Jovovich and that woman is really stuntful.

@Muda,
Glad you realized that, though a bit but...thanks.
I also watch films and to some people's perception, I'm mayen films. But I read much more than I watch. Even yesterday, I watch two films; Julia Robert's Closer and an old movie titled King Solomon Mines, which I read it's novel some times ago.

Thanks for your (both Husnaa and Muda) kind understanding.

Havent seen it either, but its about magic and strange lands a big flying bear and a magical golden compass. There is Nicole Kidman as well. I think it is a good movie. It seems to be like getting attention. So it must be reasonably OK. I intend to watch in sha Allah.

  Salam,  
     I went to the movies yesterday with friends specifically to watch The Golden Compass.Husnaa has already given the story line(the bear does not fly though.Only the witches do).I'll give it a pass mark but honest speaking,it is not as good as i expected.I have not read the books yet but i am sure that some parts have been wiped off in the movie because it obvious that some things are missing.Same thing happened to Harry Potter movies.The thing is Engish movies are not as good when it comes to transforming books into movies as the American's.If you have read Lord of the ring books you will find out that there are no much differences with what is in the movies.I'll not discorage you Myself,you might find it very interesting.Happy viewing. :)

Yes I think u are correct. The harry Potter movies kind of just deteriorated after philosopher's stone and chamber of secrets movies. On the other hand, Lord of the Rings... are timeless movies... one will never get bored watching them over and over again... unlike the matrix trilogy.. I am getting bored just thinking about them...

DB u try o!You have just 1 more season to go.
I have not watched any 24 episode because of the number of seasons i'll have to watch before i become current.I dont think i'll ever have time to watch 6 seasons.I hear its very interesting.

Has anyone watched the available episodes of prisonbreak season 3?

Yes GGNK, its not easy to work and watch fim,
however, its good to enjoy the weekend with
your wife(s) and kids beside you while you watch
fim simultaneously.

You mean Season 3 of Prison Break? i started
watching it, but the CD is pirated i guess, so there
are missing parts, but Agent Alex Mahorn, Michael
Scofield, T-Bag and other ganduroba from Fox
River Prison are all in SONA Prison now, i have
never seen a crazy prison like that before.

Pls hajia, do watch P Break. You can't believe how addictive/good it is. Why download and keep if it ain't for watching? ;D I now have this problem of mentally/subconciously comparing any movie I'm watching with prison break! And they always come up short ::)

Alan Gubro - how good is 24? I'm tempted to go buy the whole seasons.

I saw someone recommnded 'The Hills Have Eyes" in this thread. Man! That film is so terrifying. I ended up watching the Part II in the office, cos I don't want a repeat of the tension I felt when I watched the first part in the night at home. I recommend it to all horror flicks lovers!!

Yeah, 24 is really a hot series film, except that the
Director(s) sun zuga Jack too much, he is always
successful in all his mission and the film really throws
light on Americans aiding foreign terrorist in other to achieve
their political and economic solutions.

My best character in the film is Jack Bauer himself,
and I recently found out that he is contesting for the
No. 1 seat (presidency) in America.  Then followed by
Tony Almeida, Chloe O'brian and Edgar.

I will be watching the Season 6 this Christmas break,
I also just read the highlights of season 6 in the 24 fan
website.

I highly recommend you buy 24 and watch it this xmas
break, i bet you will like it.

Enchanted

Hmmm, I may be a bit biased with this one because I absolutely adore James Marsden

(a.k.a Cyclops, a.k.a Corny Collins). Enchanted was really entertaining. I love it when

thereís a hybrid between fairy tales; itís like all your favorite ice-cream flavors in one scoop.


P.S I love you

I read the book back in 2005 and loved every word. I just saw the movie adaptation and

for once in my life I am 100% satisfied with the movie adaptation of a book. Hilary Swank

did Holly a lot of justice and so did Gerard Butler with Gerry, it was like they just went inside

my head and acted out the way I had been picturing the story


27 Dresses

Another good romantic comedy also with James Marsden! Katherine Heigl is a good actress;

I donít know what sheís doing on Greyís Anatomy. The theme is centered on the saying

ďAlways the bridesmaid, never the bride.Ē


The Jane Austen Book Club

Just saw the preview. Itís got Emily Blunt from the Devil Wears Prada. I canít wait!


Sweeney Todd!

Saw the preview sometime ago and Iím definitely watching it. If not for Johnny Depp

then for Helena Bonham Carter (Sheís got a golden globe nomination for this one, I hope

an Oscar will follow, she deserves it).

I have seen Enchanted and P.S. I love You....but i havent finished yet. Very good movies you know, Hilary Swank was sumthing. Did you guys see the new MTV produced dance movie titled How She Moves? It has an amazing story, a medical student, not a nerd this time, going for a step dance competition in order to raise money so as to complete her education in a private college...interesting ehn? The Preveiw is wicked.

Since You Got Serve i havent seen any other dance movie that beats it till date, Step Up was good but yet not that thrilling.

Keep on watching the western movies, I also do. All I am saying is that you guys should also watch the local movies, especially the Hausa. You see, even Hollywood started from the scratch and became what is today. I believe that it is by patronizing and giving recognition to the up coming talents here, that they can be able to achieve great results, simple. There is always a begining in anything, and the local talents here are just having their "begining." Okay?

Ka tabo magana, mallam. ;D Some of us actually watch them (hausa films), but some here think they stink and are not worth watching. In any case, a lot had been said about (there's a lot of threads opened on the issue) the merits/demerits, 'watchability' and otherwise of Hausa films. So... its an overflogged issue really.

For how long? 15 years? You know something about the hausa movies, i dont even know where to start, i ca nwrite a bloody book for Kaniwood criticism, bottom line its so generally embarrasing to present such movies to the global audience. Let me start with one basic simple thing: They should improve on their authenticity of the storyline and be much more original, take a look at Nollywood movies, their stories are original, at least you get to see their true culture, it is vividly depicted in the course of their movies, even if a character comes back from america in a plot, they will either make reference of their village or home town somehow in the movie, but in our hausa movies, the case is never so, its only blantant lies that have corrupted the bases of Kaniwood movies, no bases for culture at all, only copying other peoples cultures in our film, i mean common? What impression are we giving the world if our female actors dress like europeans in scenes and the most producers make actors wear indian attires in marriage or dance scenes in the movies? Are we not tarnishing our own images.

Infact am opening a topic on this bloody wood!

Well...ba ayi but govt has given them green light to continue but under some strict circumstances, which required them, first of all, to come and register. But yet, none of them come as said Mal Rabo, head of the Films Censor Board in his interview with BBC Hausa's Bala Ibrahim during burning of ponorgraphic and other bad films in Kano last week by state govt.

No offence intended or Taken Waduz. And I seriously dont want to start an over flogged topic here, but I'm afraid its been too long to mature. Hollywood and bollywood probably started from scratch, Nigeria, we didnt. Holywood started with crappy movies with crapy equipment since before they could transfer voice. But they did the best they could then, in both immitation and originality, they invested in the technology and battled thier governments to get to where they are. I need not remind u the sigificance of Hollywood and Bollywood to thier governments and economies today.

My brother, we got thier technology already, we have intuition and a good head start(dan kwairo, samanja, golobo e.t.c) but we still havent improved from there. Hollywood and bolywood did all the hardwork, most other international cinemas simply pick up from where these ones have arrived, which scratch do we want to goto again? Our All-in-one (no genre or category) movies haven't changed from the times of samanja to today, probably only got more....displeasing.

If u take a movie from the nineties(hollywood and bollywood) and take another today, u will see alot of diferences because they still grow. Kai, take a movie from 2000 and compare it to 2006 movie, wallahi u'll see the difference...they grow. Mu fa? Even the Nigerian films, I'm not so impressed. The day I admit we suck at making movies I slept with a certain form of relief...knowing I was right. I pray someone proves me wrong someday.



Anyways coming back to the subject matter....I just watched the Illusionist, that film is awesome. Anyone who lays eyes on it wont regret it. Made 2006 cant believe it took me 2 years to watch it. Silly me thought its the same as the prestige, lol.

TAKE THAT STATEMENT BACK Ibro2g (why not 3g or or 4g... its all the mobile rage now!!   ;D) Hollywood never ever started with crappy movies.. Know why? because there werent any movies that u could make comparisons with and say that those early ones were crappy! Grief! Those were ORIGINALS!!! They were a genre on their own and there can never be other films to match them in originality or sheer exuberance!! What I mean to say is that for the fact that they were the pioneer films and there were no others before them, then they are truly masterpieces! Bayan haka, har yau some of the best cinematic films in terms of artistry, technical genius and story lines or scripts dialogue (whatever) are black and white films of the silent genre or the talking genre. I recommend you go and get one or two silents like harold loyd  or  Charlie Chaplin, or Nosferatu... (thats something I'm telling u there is still no better vampire thriller to beat nosferatu) or Rudolph Valentino's the Sheikh... or Errol Flynn in Captain Blood...hmm yum yummy.. Or Bette Davis's 'All About Eve' or the Basil Rathbone as Sherlock Holmes in the Hounds of the Baskervilles and all the other Sherlock Holmes Series.. or the thriller Gaslight.. and many many more...like the carry on series hehehehe ..carry on nurse, carry on doctor... or what's his name... Norman wisdom.. or God!! Mr Bean is a total BORE!!!!!!!!!! compared to these quintessential British comedians ;D ;D ;D
Things have changed considerably of course but a lot of the times I have found myself watching modern day films and I'm telling you at least 70% of them in toto are not worth the effort of watching..

lol ok Husnaa I take it back, apparently I misjudged what they were, as I knew it wasn't the best of actors then, they were rivaled by the elite Operas and all, but true to the Operas were not movies. So they must be genuine. Still they imitated the Operas though. For the record I do take it back

I watched perfect stranger by Halle Berrey...cant believe the ending. U guys should watch it too

Oh National treasure was nice. I like all grail hunt movies, from the King Arthurs to the Davinci's codes'. I enjoy stories from history even when fictional....I love history. National treasure 2 should be in cinemas now

I watched a classic last night, absolutely hillarious. "Those magnificent men and thier flying machines" I still cant stop laughing. I want to find time to watch the more than 2 and a half hour long American gangsters, by Denzel washington and Russell crowe. Directed by Ridley Scott, director of the Gladiator and Kingdom of heaven. I heard somewhere that sometime back about 2-3 years ago, Denzel was paid millions of dollars NOT to be in the movie. He must have a much bigger deal now then.

"The Stepford Wives". Movie I never get tired of. And when you watch a movie over and over and over again, you will find yourself reciting casts lines along with them. ;D

"Death becomes her". makes one start rummaging through their cosmetic dresser or shop shelves looking for beautywellbeing and anti-ageing creams.

"Pretty woman". Cant help wonder as usual how strange men could get, finding love in the wrong places and making it right and it worked :-\

Old movies worth pulling out and watching again. Appeals mostly to the laidies.

Message for Fateez: cant remember where exactly but you were on about wanting to watch this particular movie "Sweeney Todd". I got info on it. I have a young cousin who has a passion for movie and I tell you: very fanatical!! I called her mum for a chat and unfortunately had that little chatterbox and the end of the line answering and of course she begun running her mouth. Uninterestingly, I listened, begining to feel sleepy. And she said: "oh I watched Sweeney Todd too", I got interested because after being bored and irritated of seeing the advert online everyday, I really wanted to know whats the sprung about the movie, you know curios! Suprisingly my little cousin said it was rubbish and a waste of time. ;D Tells the story of early & foggy years of England and all same stories about jack the ripper, dracula, snipers; tales of killing. From what she told me, behind it all, just a silly remake of "sound of music" and only differences are: plot/story line and characters. But if you like Sachan Baron Cohen, then hisinthemovie!!!
Well I have to wait another year before I can get a hold of the movie or resort to grabbing a pirated copy or wait till a DVD copy swings my way. And we talking one or more years before I can give my take on "Sweeney Todd". ;D You might find it interesting, that is, if you get to watch it before me.

I hate TV now. You people have no idea how that ridiculous WGA strike has affected

my life as a couch potato! Three months hanging on House and three months hanging on

desperate Housewives, they are killing me! :( :( :( !

PS: Desperate housewives Season 4 is the best one everrrrrrrrrrrr! I have only seen the

first 10 episodes and they are hilarious! Really serious, but hilarious at the same time.

Carlos and Gabrielle are crazy!

Oh and House Season 4, also the best season ever! Itís like both series decided to step

up their game in the fourth year. too bad we canít see da rest of the season *sniff* *sniff*


I would try see the film. Anybody ever watch The Apprentice? Pretty good, as a Reality TV program. 8)




Hehe! Bakan Gizo, I donít like the apprentice. I dunno why. Maybe itís Donald Trump.

Or maybe itís because we come home to watch TV for fun. The Apprentice is just like

a rerun of work on TV. Apart from that itís not too bad I guess.

When it comes to reality TV I like; Project Runway, Americaís Next Top Model, So you

think you can Dance, Idol & The biggest loser.

Bee - Yeah, Saving Private Ryan is excellent. If you like war films, try Enemy At the Gate, Windtalkers, and The Longest Day; if you can lay your hands on it. It is cool 8). It is a classical reenactment of the Normandy landing (the turning point of WWII).

The golden compass....another harry potter on the lose guys lol. Not the best thing on the couch, but not bad either

Boondock saints. really nice movie, funny how saints behave....the ones that really make a difference.

Hitman, if u played the game, u wont get enuff of the movie. 47 is the killer, he makes it look like an art. Not even the government messes with 47. This nameless guy really delivered the movie well, despite the fact he's a lil oo short for 47. I'm gonna go get myself a bar code lol

I'm not surprised yr friend doesnt like Desperate houswives.. he likes macho TV series apparently all the three mentioned are all about men and all the main stars are men and all action revolves round them. Desperate housewives in all about women on the other hand..
Would he like nip tuck? Its about men also , but unlike the others, its lascivious. I have watched three episodes only. Not becos it aint  interesting... no time to watch. There is TRAVELLER also. What about the APPRENTICE  a reality show? I am well and truly hooked on it. He might like Grey's anatomy also. I like it

Gaskiya from ur friends line of tv shows, maybe he should watch Alias to complete the trail. Heroes is awesome, he may not like it though.

I cant believe I can find someone who watched Traveller, its awesome. Too bad its been cut off. I think the U.S Gov had something to do wid it.

Desparate Housewives is one movie i will always
recommend.  Among all these movies, it is the only
movie you will learn things of reality especially as
it affects our daily life.

So, my recommendation for him is to try harder and
watch desparate housewives.

Alternatively, you can go for "Ibro Fims".  (I heard that
the poor guy is seriously sick, he has been admitted at
a hospital).

Sorry, I forgot to mention he's through with Apprentice also. Isn't Grey's Anatomy a medical drama? I think it would boring. Could be wrong though.

Since when did Ibro fims become TV Series? ;D Allah ya bashi lafiya.

I will definitely look for Alias. Heard so much about Traveller, but since it was cut off at only the 8th Episode, how would it be interesting? I mean it would be sort of 'hanging'.

Desperate Housewives or Gimore girls, dont know which 1s worse.(if u r a guy).

Horroh sucks...are you alright? or is it because you are so into action movies that you are saying that? Horror is like the only genre of a movie that still retains it capability, a horroh movie will always scare the living hell out of you, but action movies now hardly live up to their expectations. Have you seen Undisputed 2? Its not a horror movie, its action, i am a fan also...lol!
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: Ibro2g on March 28, 2008, 01:38:49 AM
Oh No! I'm not an action fan. Havent been for a long time. Most action movies made for over a decase now have been meaningless or unrealistic, with so much cliche probably due to low budgets. Action films just were'nt entertaining much because "we have seen it all" But recently, come 2006-2008. The action producers have given us something really entertaining. Even when its senseless action, its still very entertaining.

I'm a fan of thriller movies, I love the excitement and the suspense. The way lives and mysteries unfold. I sometimes watch horrors but wallahi they dont scare me, not anymore. Things can only be scarry to me when they atleast seem plausible. Most horror movies are not plausible, they just hide the killers identity or the crimes of the victim until the end. Its like watching a movie in reverse, then the deadly parts are accompanied with annoying sudden drums. The stories are just told backwards, and it has become....cliche. You know what, I have seen so many horror movies, the high and low budget ones(the latter are more in number) Mostly, Only the ones inspired by a truelife story entertained me, and the stories were also told backwards, to make it seem thrilling and scary. How many Horror films do u know with more than 4 Oscars? or even 3?

Comedies may be attempts at humour, but they arent failed. Often, they tend to make us laugh. But comedies arent my favorite genre either, althogh I love em.

Pay little mind to my criticsm of Horror, like I said earlier, they just dont fit my kinda movies.

Ratatouille was Amazing! Probably one of Disneyís most original stories. Usually I have a

problem with 3D animated features because they are always short! An average of 80mins!

But ratatouille was long and every minute was enjoyable. Dyu know that one of the chefs

in Gusteauís restaurant is Nigerian? That tall black guy, heís funny. There werenít many

wonderful animations that year and ratatouille really stood out especially because 2007 was

a year of mediocre animations.

Still in the world of animations, I canít wait for the next Hayao Miyazaki feature Ponyo on the

Cliff by the Sea
. I read the plot and it sounds really promising. I can already predict an Oscar

nomination at least. Hayao is a genius!!

Hayao Mizaki...never heard of him.
Ratatouille was great.

I recently watched transformers...it was good.There was a lot of humour in it.
My only problem was that towards the end,during the action i failed to understand who was fighting who.
There was too much destruction and noise....but i should have expected it,machine fighting machine.
Anyways it was a good movie.

Have you guys been watching the US Box office lately? Mega powerful movies are on their way such as Iron Man, a must see...most definately, The Forbidden Kingdom, it got Jackie Chan and Jet Li, for the first time, they finally met in a movie, i have been wainting a long time for that to happen. its just wicked, there is this new one called Speed Racer, its about car racing but most of the parts are animation. Lol...there is so much...thinking about them alone gives me a rush, The Chronicles of Narnia II: Prince Caspian, the story is a year after the first movie in the real world which is equivalent to 1300 years in Narnia. There are just so much movies to watch; What Happens in Vegas, Made of Honor and so on! I need a DVD!

You are right. It ended at the 13th episode due to the WGA strike. I'm somehow getting spoiled by these TV series,as I no longer watch normal films. I'm currently watching 4400.

4400, if am not mistaken is some Alien invasion crap series...... but I stress........ "TO ME". Amira, dont bother watchin, its worse than boredom on its own. All these Alien invasion series and movies are so 1960's and just repetition over repetition..........*yawns* Though, many like it, n many dont! :-\

Just finished watching "Deliver us from Eva" for the millionth time and my all time fave "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" and am about to watch "The Grudge"................chinese version. I love horror movies!

And if I dont dose off to sleep...........The Black Panther will b next..........that movie always has an effect on me. Leaves you wit dat sense of patriotic feelin: Yeah proudly African!

eyebrows and causing suspicions about my sanity. hehe! This movie totally rocks! It's so

hilarious, I laughed till i started crying. Well done Dreamworks SKG! Definitely the funniest

animation ever made! You'd start laughing right from time 0.00 tilll the very end.

Great use of Culture! Great use of Language! Beautiful Metaphors! The dialogue was outstanding!

Picked up this line from the movie; "Your mind is like water, when it is agitated, it becomes difficult

to see. But f you allow it to settle, the answer becomes clear." Useful for people like me that

make rash decisions when upset.... I give it 6 stars out of 5! Totally exceeded my expectations...

I went to the cinema to watch Indiana Jones beginning of last month. I felt like falling asleep through it. Borriiiiiiiiiiiing. It was a box office success though... the power of advertizing... even Indiana wasnt impressed with his own movie. He left Cannes well before the announcements of the winner of the palm d'or were made.
The winner of the palm d'or was a film called waltzing with Bashir or something with Bashir anyway, sleeping with Bashir? dying with Bashir? cant remember. Lol! its funny isnt it? anyway its made by two Germans or israelis. Its animated (Hello Fateez this is yr forte). It is about the massacre of Palestinian refugees at Sabra and Chatilla in 1982, from an israeli soldier's point of view, so its going to be interesting to watch.

sorry that film waltzing or whatever with Bashir wasnt the winner of the palm d'or. It was a french docudrama about social issues at a french high school. But the Bashir film won its directors best direction or something like that. Both films are worth watching I guess.

I also watched Cloverfield. Ni dai it was an absolute flop,i wonder how it even got to be number one in the box office some time back.
It was like a camcorder shooting of a catastrophe.You know how it feels to watch camcorder footage from an amateur? That is how the movie is. Dodon ma ba su nuna mana shi sosai ba sai dai short glimpses.
And in the end all the people died,no one old us how the story ended......Mtsss.

I watched another very good movie of a different genre the other day, called the twins or 'ein tweeling'. Its a dutch movie with subtitles. Very very good; better than flightplan infact; one of those films that u can watch twice or three times without getting bored. Highly recommended if anyone can get their hands on it. It won an oscar for best foreign film, dont know which year though. Its not this or last yr, that I am sure of.

Kema dai kin san da wasa kike, titanic its a very good movie in its own genre, but Matrix is a revolution, it revolutionariese the whole action movie industry...how about that? Anyway i am not here for arguements, i just watched an old movie that made me angry, Arlington Road, it has Joan Cusack and Jeff Bridges in it, i have never seen a movie were the protagonist get bombed in the end by terrorist in their main plot, and about 180 more people die along, the antagonist then goes scott Free. It was so annoying, this guy's wife was killed by them, his son got kidnapped and then after his death (the successful plan of the antagonists), the protagonist was framed that he was the mastermind of the whole plot, the leader of the terrorist whom were not caught, and he was disregarded even in his death, that wa so annoying, his son got abducted in orphanage knowing that his dad was a criminal. Haba?

Lol what gave you that idea GGNK? Mr Dicaprio has nothing to do with my liking Titanic and watching the departed. Its just a coincidence he happens to be the major star of both 2 movies. Let's say I am beginning to like him as a result of the Departed, cos his acting was terrible in the Titanic. It was his co star Kate Winslett who carried the day. But he"s Okay I guess.
To be honest with you, I started watching the departed and so far, I am not enjoying it. I dont like Jack Nicholson very much you see. Maybe I was sleepy at the time. At any rate, I stopped watching and decided to give it a try in the morning. So now here goes. I m about to watch the rest of the movie. Will tell you if I liked it.

There is no reason for not liking jack nicholson, Wallahi; just one of those things. Cant stand his face perhaps. He's a good actor nevertheless. Which film did he appear as dracula? I'm not aware of that.
 I have been unable to watch the rest of the departed. The DVD is overused unfortunately so my so sensitive DVD drive refuses to play the movie. However, I did get to watch BABEL. Do you know it? excellent movie, although its got so many scenes which should really be sensored. What I kept thinking of afterwards was what those morroccans  are going to think of the final film and their participation in it given its highly explicit nature and their islamic backgrounds which doesnt permit such things..

Titanic was the movie or the reason why i began to like Leonardo, they both did well but then common? Leonardo was it in that movie, Many women, i repeat MANY were going crazy about Leonardo since that movie, he did very well, the comedy, romantic, action and bravery parts, he had more dialogues and all, i dont know from what perspective you were looking at it by stating that it was Kate Winslett who carried the day. I mean do you just hate Leonardo?

Anyway...UP NAIJA, i just got this DVD that has Indiana Jones and the Temple of the Crystal Skull, Jumper, War Inc., Chronicles of Narnia II: Prince Caspian, Iron Man and many more.
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: HUSNAA on July 30, 2008, 02:56:40 PM
Lol Muda I dont know if u are standing on yr head or yr feet. Titanic was the reason you began to like Leonardo D, and many women went crazy for him since he appeared in the movie, so in other words you are likening yr feelings for L. to the kind of affections those delirious women bear for him, and u are challenging me for being different? Maybe we should swap, let me like him bcos of the movie and u become indifferent; wouldnt that be more macho on yr part?   :P

Look, I think L is gorgeous, handsome, etc, but I dont know him. I only see what appears on the screen and it aint him in persona. So I dont hate him. I felt indifferent to him because truly he couldnt act in Titanic and like I said, Kate, Kathy Bates and even Billy Zane and his valet (or gentleman's gentleman) acted more convincingly in the movie than L. He was much better in the departed I saw the beginning where Mark Walhberg riled the hell out of him and he really looked pissed off and on a tight leash which was just what he should appear to be under the circumstances. I'm still to see the departed to the end. Like I said, I began to fall asleep midway through the movie. I will have to watch it over again but I still find it boring especially Jack Nicholson's part. He's no  Marlon Brando.

I watched Indiana Jones and the crystal skull. It was OK. If you've seen the other Indiana Jones movies then you've already seen this one. There was nothing spectacular about it. Even the car chases left alot to be desired because it was so jaded, i.e. that ground has been covered before obviously. But I'm glad it still made millions for Harrison Ford. He's one of my all time fave actors, he and Tommy Lee Jones.
What does anyone think of Babel for God's sake. It was a good movie. Personally, I judge a good movie by its effects on me afterwards i.e. if it gets me thinking about it, or has me trying to get more info about the film or the actors. This one did. I went digging for info on those two Morrocan boys who were the cause of all the mayhem in the film. Unfortunately there is nothing on them. Its a pity.

I liked L coz i was impressed with an acting of a brave strong-headed dare devil kid in his age wich became a historically success, not because women were all over him, i am not challenging you for being different Husnaa am only surprised that you feel Winslett's acting was better or was it because the story was centered areound her?...i mean common? And what has being macho got to do with being impressed with a particular actors acting anyway?

Look, I think L is gorgeous, handsome, etc, but I dont know him. I only see what appears on the screen and it aint him in persona. So I dont hate him.

Have you seen The Man In The Iron Mask? Leo played two characters in the movie, have you seen Gangs of New York? What about Catch Me If You Can  he did with Tom Hanks? What about Blood Diamond? I'm sure you must have seen all those movies, they are all blockbusters, i just cant see why you remain adamant that he aint impressive. Really!

Look, I am not much of a film watcher; I always think I have other things to do more important, or that I wont enjoy the movie so I dont watch it. Leonardo has come a long way as an actor. I just finished watching blood diamonds and I must say he was superb in the film. That South African accent and the Creole (or Sierra Leonean) pidgin were wicked. Really takes a man who knows his stuff to master them so effortlessly and the scene when he described his parents death, I nearly cried along with him. Djimon Hounsou was absolutely believable, especially where his son held a gun at him and L, and he had to jolt the kid out of his emotional apathy. All in all an excellent excellent movie. A++++++ for LC and Djimon Hounsou.  However, I still say in Titanic, he was zilch and yes kate Winslett was the better actor between she and he in the Titanic. She is a superb and effortless actress. Most British actresses are very talented funnily enough.

I havent watched man in the iron mask, cos I know the story and have watched about two previous version of the same film about king louis the fourteenth who was substituted for a fake, apparently  his supposedly twin brother or a fake lookalike, who becomes the puppet of the perpetrators of this farce and it takes the three musketeers to free the king. All ala Comte de Monte Cristo if you ask me, which is not surprising because  Alexandre Dumas  wrote both novels on which the films were based.

I have seen gangs of new york and I didnt like it one bit. Not one bit.

Finally i was opportuned to see the sneak-peak of the third installment of the mummy called The Mummy: Tomb Of The Dragon Emperor. It got Brendan Fraser and Jet Li, actually Jet Li is the dragon emperor, meaning the villain, again meaning it will have some ill ass kicking, it also got Michel Yeoh...wicked. I think i can use my time to watch the movie and see how they can incorporate the idea of egyptian mummification with Ancient China monks...hehehe.

Have anyone seen or heard anything about the film Fitna? Please check it on Wikipedia, its very important, they are attacking Islam again.

It was so interesting. I like the way the 3 stories were linked. Morocco-Japan-US.
It was a pity that deaf girl. And those boys were rude, haushin su ya kama ni.

I'll finish it next week,hopefully. Inshaallah.

Muda,that fitnah will only cause more fitnah. I'll not even read about it cos there's nothing one can do.

And there is no way that you can only seat and do nothing either while the Qur'an, Islam and the Prophete SAW are being disrespected, cant you see? Something can be done, we can always partake in the boycott, if these individuals really have the guts to diss our religioun and its entities and their governments backs them up, then we can only boycott their products, it would work honestly, 1.6 billion muslims on earth can slap the economy of any nation. Do the maths.

you should read it Goga, for more knowledge or facts on what they are saying concerning our religion. Pls!

Muda, I think GGNK is right. There is no need to read it. Suffice to say that you have and you have alerted us. We believe you when you say that they are attacking Islam, since they have done it before and its being done in more ways than one. What we should do is not read it and extract zunubi in the process, but react by fighting back. Boycott their goods. Know what I'd really like to see happen? all the muslims living in those regions who genuinely feel affronted should pack up and leave the country. But it wont happen.

I don't really bother myself reading/watching such nonsense. It will only enrage me more.

Now anyone know anything about the musical Mama Mia? It's suppose to be about the musical legend group, abba.
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: HUSNAA on August 14, 2008, 03:28:40 PM
any one know about the musical mamamia? well apart from the lead actors that is meryl streep and pierce brosnan, very little else.  I think the movie isnt going to be all that. Reason is bcos its really the abba music that generates the interest rather than the plot of the movie which is about a girl who on the eve of her wedding, wants to know who amongst her mothers past paramours was her own dad. That's basically it. Mind you I havent watched it, only trailers that's all. Music wise, no amount of perfection in immitation can reproduce an abba original. So when it gets out on a DVD, I will watch it. The only guarantee is that Meryl Streep is one of Hollywood's finest actresses ever. So she's worth the watching.

I'm not asking them to watch the 15mins movie, i only asked them to read about the article of the movie in an enclopedia, if they wount read it fine, i just dont see how it will extract Zunubi on a person? Someone sent me a text about the movie, i thought it was just a bluff on how people send mails and ask you to send it to 5 or ten more people that if you dont send it this and that will befall you, so i shoved it aside, but something told me to check on it which i did and then find out the truth, in the article i learned about the exact present situations, who and who was involved,  people reactions, jurisdictions passed, the websites that supported the posting of the clip and those that did not and dates of certain invents, just for the record and i am empowered, i know were i stand and i know who said what... you know instead of having people adding more salt and sugar to the real facts.

Nothing new about the storyline.

Haba? Well you guys gave me the idea, actually, and i love movies, we all do, especially you, I, Fateez and Husnaa. I am also looking forward to watch Made of Honor, it seems like quite a nice romantic comedy, i saw the preveiws on Box office a number of times. On saturday i saw a movie called A Walk To Remember, its a very beautiful romantic teen movie about an arrogant high school girl who fell completely in love with the beautiful rigid school nerd (no spectacles but ponytail) who secretly happened to have Leukemia and that her body stopped responding to treatment for the past 2 years. As soon as they started going out she told him and he became depressed and later she feel ill but was ok and he married her but she died in about a year or two after the marriage. Very sad and romantic. It was unlike me to have loved the movie ko Husnaa...lol?

Yep I watched it a few yrs ago. Just once. Dont know why. The film's very good and that was when I became aware of Matt Damon as an actor. He's really super; better than Ben Affleck. Have u seen 'The Talented Mr Ripley', where Matt played an awfully bad person.. he was so convincing that I ended up disliking him for sometime... hahahahaha

There are some very very good African films made by other Africans (not Nigerians) and they are so good they win international film festival prizes. South Africa is a hot bed of good African films. Akwai wani wanda na so na kalla by a Senegalese, it won some award. I read bits about it, but then decided not to watch it as it was a toss between that or Troy and Happy feet. I chose Troy and Happy Feet.  Will insha Allah watch the film after azumi and get back to u guys about it.

Nima dai I, some days ago, watched two very interesting films from whats called Christian Movie Collection. And the ones i did watch are: Mel Gibson's Passion of the Christ, which is about Christians' Jesus (not ours). He, in that film, did suffer really and eventually cruxified later.

The second one was (I'm out of words to describe it :-[) Davinci Code. What a film? Dan Brown, as I said at Lit. Forum, is a genuise. Its ineffable, marvelous, weird and mysterous. Kai wani abun sai ka kalla. I enjoyed it.

You definitely will enjoy it more that way, Husnaa. I too read the book before watching the book. But I particulraly found it (the film) as an explanation of what I have had just read. E.g, seeing the real picture of the Holy Grail, Jesus picture at last lunch with Mary Magdalene, the Priory, poor albino Silas and host of other things. Ta taka, GGNK, what a masterpiece!

Heylo movie buffs! Since my last post....

The Dark Knight

I saw a very very very advanced screening and it was so hard to keep my

mouth shut from ruining it for people. Iím a huge Marvel and DC comic fan, so my opinion will

be biased. Loved the Joker! Thought the movie was a bit too long Ė but enjoyed it still :)


Mamma Mia

Fun Fun fun! I couldnít help it, I just had to sing along to all the ABBA classics!

It was sooooo goood! Plus it had Meryl Streep, what wud you expect huh? Itís good to know

Pierce Brosnan hasnít lost any of his pizzazz!!! hot hot hot! I donít care; my husband needs to

take me to one of them Greek Islands! Can a place be more serene?


Sex and the City

Iím not particularly an SATC fan, I mean Carrie can be soooo annoying, but I love a good chick flick!

Loved the clothes especially that Vivienne Westwood dresss! Oh My God! The story however was

very mediocre and I thought Jennifer Hudsonís acting was really bad Ė and cheesy! Anyways, The

story I didnít agree with Ė Thereís no way Iíll go back to marry a man that dumped me on our wedding

day! If he can't even make a simple commitment who knows what else heís going to walk out on in the future?


The Mummy:

Tomb of the Dragon Emperor Ė Gosh, what a fiasco! The only good part of this movie

was Jet liís part. As in the legend and the story, I wish they spent more time on it. Brandon Fraserís

part was just weird and tacky! Tacky story line! Still love Brandon though...


I canít wait to see

The Duchess, How to lose friends and alienate people, Heís just not that into you

(Havenít read the book yet though), Marley and me (Gotta love Jennifer Aniston! :))

I haven't seen Mamma Mia, but I know I'd love it. Probably cos of my love for ABBA. As for SATC, I remember a colleague of mine giving me to watch in the office. After 2-3 episodes I discovrered it is not a movie to watch in the office ;D. I returned it, but it is okay.

hierarchical food chain. I never knew men watched SATC! I have always assumed

it was a women's show...hmmmmm.... ??? ??? ???


TV shows!

Desperate Housewives 5

I love the twist they have taken with season 5! It was beginning to get a bit stagnant with

the same old same old, but this season they've taken it up a notch! It's set five years into the

future and the scandals just keep getting better! P.S how weird is Edie's new husband?


House 5

Speaking of House, who loved the way season 4 ended? The season finale - Wow! That was just

the best episode... Season 5 is good so far. Lots of twists. Does 13 really have Huntington's?


Gossip Girl 2

One of the best things to happen to to TV. 5 stars! Enough said!



90210

I was a former Beverly Hills fan, so I expected 90210 to be good too. Don't get me wrong,

I love the story line but the acting is ABYSMAL! It's fake, it's rehearsed and so unconvincing!

What's the director thinking? It's like the people were cast based on their looks rather than

their acting skills! So sad to see such a good story ruined by bad acting....


Project Runway

Anyone seen season 5?


I can't wait to see TWILIGHT! There's just so much hype everywhere, I hope it lives up to it :)

The Dark Knight

I saw a very very very advanced screening and it was so hard to keep my

mouth shut from ruining it for people. I’m a huge Marvel and DC comic fan, so my opinion will

be biased. Loved the Joker! Thought the movie was a bit too long – but enjoyed it still :)



I started watching the dark knight but stopped after like 15 mins cos i didn't understand one bit of what i was seeing. I really never ever loved batman...
Come i even have a question. Is he realy an honest person? ba criminal superhero bane kuwa?
Anyway i even asked my junior brother to give me a summary of the movie but all he kept emphasising was the superb car.....it was the only thing i guess he understood.

Mamma Mia

Fun Fun fun! I couldn’t help it, I just had to sing along to all the ABBA classics!

It was sooooo goood! Plus it had Meryl Streep, what wud you expect huh? It’s good to know

Pierce Brosnan hasn’t lost any of his pizzazz!!! hot hot hot! I don’t care; my husband needs to

take me to one of them Greek Islands! Can a place be more serene?


I need to buy myself an ABBA collection. Reminded me of the good old days.
When i watched t our hausa movies came to mind. How they sing and dance.
But dai turawa ba su da kunya ko miskala zarratin. Imagine her inviting three
people she suspected to be her fathers. She knew her mother slept along with
guys....tir.



As for the series u mentioned.i haven't seen any.
Prison break kawai. I love house sha.

No. I'm not high in the food chain ;D Someones one can't resist taking a peep at a movie now and then in the office, especially if you're free. You'd be surprised how much movie-time ppl eke out during office hours.

Gaskiya ne SATC is a women's show but it's funny to watch. Any way I dropped it after some few episodes.

I started watching the dark knight but stopped after like 15 mins cos i didn't understand one bit of what i was seeing...

And its like it is a contender for the Golden Globe Award.

Talk about Dark Night, to begin with i never like Christian Bale in all his movies, i felt suffocated when they gave him the role of Batman for Batman Returns, if not for Ken Watanabe i woudnt have watched that movie. As for the Dark Nights, i havent gotten a clearer version yet, the one i bought was so pirated that even the DVD menu was half visible. So i cant say for now, may be i will like the Joker, i do have a thing for Heath Ledger ever since i saw Ned Kelly (what a classic). But i guess i will watch the movie just so as to witness how much it will suck.

I heard Keanu Reeves has a new movie, and i heard its tight, anyone?

Yeah Keanu has a new movie out. 'the day the world stopped' or something like that. Its supposed to be good. I havent seen it though. There are a string of good sci fi movies out. One with Mark Wahlberg. I've forgotten the name but its also good. there is another also called 'eagle eye'. You should watch them Muda since u like scifi very much.

I have seen 'the day the earth stood still'. Some aliens came to save the world and they didn't care if everybody died. It was very gripping but the story isn't very rich...well not as rich as the matrix's story.But it was good and i was lucky i had a good copy.

The one with Mark Wahlberg is 'Max Payne', a cop that lost his wife and went out to seek revenge not knowing the kind of force he was up against. It has 'Sucre' from prison break. t was a good movie but bai dada ni da kasa ba...you should watch his 'shooter'(2007)

Anyone seen 'Nights in Rodanthe'? Richard Gere and Diane Lane. Very emotional...Husnaa na san ba kya son romantic movies. Fateez had better get a box of tissue for this one.

Hehe! QL is very entertaining! Anyways, Amira I haven't seen it yet but i saw a trailer for Mad Money,

also with Queen Latifa costarring Diane Keaton (love her!) and Katie Holmes. They are cleaners that

work in a bank and its about them stealing money from a vault. It looked very interesting.

Speaking of QL, do you know she's going back to singing/rapping? I'm not into Hip Hop, but I found it interesting.

" Z, you are insignificant!" He was one among 5 million brothers and sisters! hahahahaha!! I thought that was the funniest line in the movie. There are others of course but that is the one I remember. Excellent CG animation!! First watched it in 1998, the year it came out.
Shrek is hilarious also. Eddie Murphy takes the cake as Donkey! I just have the splits just thinking of him

Slumdog Millionaire is a good movie, i learnt it won an academy award, i'm looking forward to watch it, i saw it with one of my friends. I saw Hancock too, its a very funny superhero movie, like Umma Thurman's My SuperGirlfriend.

@ Danborno, i saw that Dirty Sex Money but i didnt really click to it, i'm done with One Tree Hill though, its a very nice college series, i'm in love.

Review:

Taken: An excellent movie. Favourite part was 'I dunno who you are,i dunno what you want. If you are looking for ransome i can tell you i don't have money but what i do have are a very particular set of skills,skills i have acquired over a very long career,skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
If you let my daughter go now that is the end of it,i will not look for you,i will not pursue you but if you don't i will look for you,i will find you and  will kill you'
............sun jangwalo tsuliyar dodo.
A must see.

Soulmate: A good movie too. It was Bernie Mac's last movie before he died. Has some very nice soul music. Kada dai a kalla a cikin yara,you know how black movies are. Things could just pop up absurdly. But its a good movie and got me laughing all the way. It got Samuel L. Jackson (he participated in all the songs),Isaac Hayes and also an appearance by John Legend who is also dead now.

Can't believe I still haven't seen Slumdog Millionaire! I'm like the only one on this planet that hasn't! I

do love the soundtrack though especially Jai Ho.

Lets see, since my last visit....

Hollywood

Angels and Demons

Just watched it last week and I absolutely loved it! I haven't read the book so I was totally blown away by

the twist at the end of it! That being said though, I found it hard to take the movie seriously at first

because of the cast! Tom Hanks was oky, although I think he tried too hard to be funny (at least he tried).

As if it wasn't hard enough for me to come into terms with Ewan McGregor acting as a holy priest

Carmalengo, I see Paulo from FRIENDS acting as a priest too! Anyone remember Paulo? The sleazy Italian

guy that was dating Rachel in season 1 of FRIENDS? Hehehe! Also, in the beginning Sylvano was from

Season 4 of House! He was the old doctor that wasn't really a doctor. Seems like the entire cast was from

TV! Anyways, it was a good movie. I highly recommend!


Wolverine

Another good one! But then again I'm always bias to the Xmen series cos I was a big fan of the comics back

in the day. Opening scene was shot in Lagos (or what we're supposed to believe is Lagos) Nigeria. Watching

Ryan Reynolds speak Igbo was hilarious to say the least! All in all good movie!


Confessions of a Shopaholic

Seeing that they had changed the story a lot from the book, I didn't expect to enjoy the movie! In the book

it was supposed to be a British cast so I expected her to be all Anna Friel chic and not the movies' all

American girl next door that has a knack for labels. But it was still a good movie! Highly recommended for

the girls!


Nollywood

Beyonce and Rihanna

I didn't so much watch the movie as I did LAUGH AT IT! The plot was unoriginal and crap to say the least.

I'm not being  harsh. I'm all for supporting local talent but this movie was plain ridiculous. To add insult to

injury that Omotola Jalade Ekeinde cannot sing to save her life! I don't know who has been deceiving her

but the person should just stop it! She should stick to just acting abeg.


Passions

Good movie if you can look beyond the fake American accents. It's got Genevieve Nnaji, RMD, Stella

Damasus-Aboderin and Emeka Ike. It's a nice story. Oky film.

Jenifa

I just wanted to see what the hype was all about. It was really funny in the beginning. Right up until the

move started turning into one of those cliche campus life "runs" kind of movie that dwelled on nothing but

lame sereotypes - *yawn*

Sitanda

Finally got to watch this one and it was very impresive. Good to see Ali Nuhu challenging himself. He'd do

well in Nollywood that's for sure. I loved the story, excellent quality. Would've preferred a little more in the

clothes/costume department, but that didn't ruin it.


Kannywood

Wasan Maza

To say I was impressed is a gross understatement! This movie is a sign that a reform was all the Hausa film

industry needed to step up their game 100 notches! Sure there's still a lot of improvement to be done but

hey, at least they're trying. It's not really a Kano film but a movie from Prime Studios in Abuja. It was all class

and zero trash. No tasteless singing and dancing or all that crap. Just a beautiful story that flowed so

nicely. The cast also helped. Ibrahim Mandawari, Aisha Dan-Kano and Jamila Umar were the main cast. It's

a very grown up love story. I recommend this movie to everyone! especially people that believe that Hausa

films are nonsense, "iskanci" or "bata lokaci".

Yan Uwa

See the comment I had for Wasan Maza above. Yan Uwa is another masterpiece. It's very obvious that a

lot of depth went into the plot. It was a village focused film and the quality was very impressive! highly

recommended for any Hausa film fan. 

That's it for today!

Heheh! you too? I dunno what I was doing when everyone else was watching it.

Have you tried iTunes? They have almost everything there! A song

will probably cost about $1.00 US. Will vary depending on where you

are though. Even some of the rarest Nigerian old school music can

be found on iTunes if you search properly. Good luck.

Thanks Fateez, I'm taking yr advice. I love that album cos  when I was a teenager, I bought it at the same time that I discovered the Jewish Holocaust through a book called the yellow star (which I also bought), and somehow whenever I listen to it, it evokes pictures of the horrors I saw and read in the book. The two are indelibly entwined in my mind.
Weird reasoning  for loving the album ko???  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Well, a friend promised to upload Slumdog on my pc. In na gni zan baki labari ;D

About those good hausa movies made in Abuja, I will say it is kinda primarily due to the location of Prime Studios in Abuja. It is a top class studio, probably the best in this part of the country, or so I was told. The producer of Wasan Maza also resides there, and he happen to be an educated fellow. Not your yoour usual run-of-the-mill directors/producers that have permeated the industry in recent times. He used to produce good movies while he was in Kano, before he got transfered to Abuja (he works with an organization in the financial service industry). He just continued there.

Thanks Fateez, I'm taking yr advice. I love that album cos  when I was a teenager, I bought it at the same time that I discovered the Jewish Holocaust through a book called the yellow star (which I also bought), and somehow whenever I listen to it, it evokes pictures of the horrors I saw and read in the book. The two are indelibly entwined in my mind.
Weird reasoning  for loving the album ko???  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hehehe! You've been conditioned to associate the two! Some Pavlov stuff going on there! You know I'm

not very comfortable with the Jewish Holocaust. I've never read it up myself because I'm scared! From

my basic understanding it is gory and graphic. I sympathize with them though. The closest I have to it is

a movie called Freedom Writers starring Hilary Swank where she teaches her students about the

Anna Frank book on holocaust. You are really brave to read it as a teenager. I was more concerned about

Sweet Valley High, Enid Blyton's Mallory Towers, Secret Seven, Famous Five, and Goosebumps from R.L Stine.

I think Goosebumps is my limit. Thats all I can stomach when it comes to horror  :o  :o  :o  :o.

Heheh! you too? I dunno what I was doing when everyone else was watching it.

*sigh* The sacrifices we make.

Anyways, about Hausa films. I'm not in Kano so I dunno what's going on in that

end but most of the good movies I have seen these days are made in Abuja.

I'm very sure you'll enjoy Wasan maza. [/glow]

Well, a friend promised to upload Slumdog on my pc. In na gni zan baki labari ;D

About those good hausa movies made in Abuja, I will say it is kinda primarily due to the location of Prime Studios in Abuja. It is a top class studio, probably the best in this part of the country, or so I was told. The producer of Wasan Maza also resides there, and he happen to be an educated fellow. Not your yoour usual run-of-the-mill directors/producers that have permeated the industry in recent times.

Nice! I hope more people like him will emerge! That was probably what was missing from the previous

Kannywood. Any person from the street could purchase a camera and become a furodusa! It's funny

how it's not even his full-time job yet he's so good at it! I'm impressed! I love Iyantama movies but his

last one, Tsintisya, wasn't that great (Even though it had a very powerful message).

Lol I was more scared of Dracula the non existent monster than I was of the holocaust which was more real. I guess it had to do with time difference. The holocaust had come and gone, while Dracula was an undead and could ressurrect at any moment, and my room window  looked out to a forested area when I was at school and i used to be scared shitless every night I stayed up late to watch a dracula movie cos I always imagined he would bat into the room from that direction, so after I'd gone to bed, any noise used to frighten me into rigor mortis  (almost literally) ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D....
Title: Re: On The Couch

recommendin EAGLE EYE

READ WHAT SOMEONE WROTE WHEN HE WATCHED THE FILM

Ah, the seemingly perfect combination of Steven Spielberg, director D.J. Caruso, and everyman leading star Shia LaBeouf. These guys took us by storm with the pleasant surprise Disturbia last year, and pretty much anything with the name Spielberg on it has to be at least entertaining, if not excellent. That's what Eagle Eye is.

First off, I cannot stress this enough: don't take this movie seriously. Please don't get mad because the movie isn't realistic. I know it's unrealistic. You know it. Shia LaBeouf knows it. That doesn't stop Eagle Eye from being one of the most entertaining and effective thrillers of recent memory. Is it as smart or as gripping as other chase and mystery thrillers such as the Bourne series? Of course not. However, whenever Eagle Eye stretches our minds to the breaking limits with the insanity on screen, it manages to throw in a mind boggling action sequence or two right as we start to get mad.

The film, very well masked by trailers that really only show the beginning of the film and small pieces of the end, deals with cyber-terrorism and a secret military project dealing with destruction and national security. The US Secretary of Defense is portrayed (Michael Chiklis), it's incredibly unrealistic, has Shia LaBeouf, and has a prominent military character (Anthony Mackie). I can already here the Transformers comparisons flying in. The film also lacks in the originality department elsewhere, as elements of I, Robot and Live Free or Die Hard are also present and quite obvious.

I cannot give enough accolades to whoever thought up this action - Eagle Eye boasts arguably the best action sequences of the year. The CGI is seamless and more than worthy of an Oscar nomination. With car chases to rival the best of them, as well as one of the most clever "on-foot" chases I've ever seen within an airport, Eagle Eye never fails to grab your attention with the incredible action sequences.

Now to our cast, the headliners of which are two of film's biggest rising stars. Both live up to their names and reputations admirably. Shia LaBeouf revisits the "troubled youth" character he created in Disturbia, though his turn here is darker and has more depth. He really stretches some acting muscle in the beginning of the film, and it is because of this early success that we are willing to go along for the ride with him, following, trusting, and believing in his Jerry Shaw. Michelle Monaghan, long one of the most underrated in the business, also helps us believe in her character with a convincing show of emotion early in the film. The whole film, despite the action sequences, rides on the shoulders of the leads. If the audience doesn't like them, the film will ultimately fail. I'm pleased to tell you that they rise to the occasion and carry the film with ease.

Our supporting cast includes veterans Billy Bob Thornton and Michael Chiklis. Maybe it was the script, but Thornton's character was so stereotypical and overdone that it almost made him laughable - especially towards the end. Chiklis did great in his role as the Secretary of Defense - and the unfortunate "victim" of circumstance. Rosario Dawson and Anthony Mackie are acceptable in even smaller roles.

I remember when I watched my first D.J. Caruso film a few years ago (Two For the Money), and I remember how much I hated that film. However, Caruso has certainly grown as a filmmaker and has found his niche in the hugely entertaining action blockbuster genre, even if a lot of "movie borrowing" is done. This will be his breakthrough that will allow him a little more freedom as a filmmaker and possibly allow him to blossom into more than just an action film director. The touches of Spielberg are obvious, as the legendary director/producer's presence is only a plus.

Eagle Eye, in short, is a summer blockbuster released in September. It feels like a summer film, and has the components of a summer film: explosions, terrorism, and Shia LaBeouf. It is everything you want in an entertaining action thriller. Don't go looking for your super realistic epic here - Eagle Eye prides itself on blowing your mind every way possible.

Post by: HUSNAA on June 09, 2009, 07:40:49 PM
You know Muhsin, what makes the Matrix (number 1) unique is that some of those special effects that u are so ready to dismiss were seen for the first time ever. Like the slow motion trajectory of  those bullets; or the combination of those digitally frozen and  mobile scenes; or those scenes where some one leaps in the air in  kung fu fashion and is perfectly frozen while the camera makes a 90  to 180 degree arc or thereabouts and then the scene is unfrozen while a high kick is delivered to an unfortunate victim. So dont diss it. It may be special effects, but by God we cant execute them given the time and space since we are not skilled in that area. So show some admiration where it is due.  8)

It is such a great movie where you'll see gallantry at its best.
It made me shed tears.

Talking about tears,where are all the prison break fans? D tin don finish and wuna no talk anything?
The ending was so sweet ehn.

I also watched he's just not that into you and it was so funny too.
It loved the line where Ben affleck was trying to convince Jennifer Aniston that they should remain as friends and not get married. That people get married because they feel insecure if they don't get married.

The action was just too metallic and confusing. At some point i just had to wait to for the things to finish
fighting so that i see who emerges victor because i just caould not figure out who was fighting who or who is a deceptacon or not.

Gogannaka, what else were you expecting? Optimus Prime and Megatron to dance ballet for you abi ballroom waltz?

Hehehe! How cool will that be? Imagine the tension in the air as Optimus Prime furiously stomps towards Megatron.

The entire crowd looking on, anxious to see what new Łber cool weapon is going to morph out of their Autobot saviour...

Only for him to get there and strike an Arabesque on point! That would've been awesome! Hehehehehehe. Just playing.

I did enjoy transformers 2. I thought Transformers 1 was a hard act to follow but the 2 really lived up to the expectation.

In the past, in the days before pixels and digital movies, the films (for VHS viewing) used to be stolen from the cutting rooms in the movie studios, that is even before the final version was screened to ANYONE at all, and that is a much harder theft than now adays' digital downloads.

Goga, which HP are you talking about? Half Blood Prince?

I saw a string of movies, the one's i'm really hooked on is an award winning horror movie, Drag Me To Hell. Most scariest horror movie of the year. Its a must see.

I also laid my hands on a leaked copy of X-Men Origins:Wolverine. Even as a leaked copy, your mind will be blown away. Gaskiyya Hugh Jackman yayi kokari.

One very interesting drama i loved is Brad Pitt's The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button. Very interesting indeed.

And as for animations, well, i saw Pixar's latest work 'Up'. It's really funny.

For comedies, i watched Jim Carries 'Yes Man'. That guy is still as nutty as his Dumb and Dumber days. I love the movie.

Now the 'crazy must see' that i haven't laid my hands on are: Transformers II: Revenge Of The Fallen, Fast and Furious 4, and Ice Age 3:Dawn Of The Dinosaur.

Ghost of girlfriends: Another masterpiece.DB you should watch this one. The best scene was where Micheal Douglas was tutoring the young boy.

A Good man's hard to find: Low budget black movie.I think its an old movie but i just watched it. Nice story,although it needs some touch up.

Star Trek,The Future Begins: A must see,especially for trekkies.

I was able to watch Terminator Salvation, i had to stand up half way because i hate Christian Bale, i dont know why they give him very high budgeted movies either, up till today i havent seen Batma:The Dark Night because of him, and now John Connor? What where they thinking?

I saw Transformers II:Rvenge of The Fallen, Kai!!! Let me just say i watched it 3 times already and its 2 hrs 21 minutes no kidding. Thats all i can say for now and that its even better than the prequel.

Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince wasnt really bad, it has such a fantastic Preveiw, i was moved, so i expected so much action and magic time, therefore i got disappointed especially for the fact that the producers didnt deem it fit to include Dumbledore's Funeral at the Beach with all the merpeople, Centaurs and other creatures. That scene was beautiful in the novel.

My most see for this week are G.I. Joe:Rise of The Cobra, even if i know its a franchise movie on Toys but the movie is number II on Box Office and it has a mind-blasting preveiw, not mind-blowing, mind-blasting...lol, and alson District 9, it seems to be so terrific.

Terror Muda ya dawo!  :) :)

I also agree that Revenge of the Fallen was better than the prequel. I did find some Michael Bayism a little inappropriate, but it didnt ruin the movie.

Half blood prince = anticlimatic and diasppointing!!! It was flat! flat! flat!

I still haven't seen GI Joe but I won't see District 9 even if they paid me! Do you know what they portrayed Nigerians as in that movie?

I am a proud Nigerian and I am Disappointed!

Going to see The Ugly Truth this weekend. Love Gerard Butler! Can't wait!

Fateez,its good to be patriotic. Have you seen the Sony PS3 advert?
The Nigerian govt had to demand an apology from Sony Corporation.Their MD had to apologize.

BKGZ i will get the movies for you inshaAllah.
I don't have inglorious basterds but i will get it for you. I don't like Quentin Tarantino's movies so much.Too bloody.
I watched defiance, i thought it wouldn't be interesting but it turned out to be way over my expectation.

I also watched a low budget,weird but very interesting movie called 'the man from earth'. It was filmed in just one room with just like 10 people but it was so captivating. A man was moving from his home and his friends wanted to know why and where he was moving to.
He started telling them why and it turned out he was 14000 years and does not age and that he was Jesus and that he never said he was the son of God etc etc.....very funny movie.

Lol at Fateez.

At least, Fateez agrees with me that Transformers II is the dynamite this 2009 (coz till date i havet seen a movie like it) and that Harry Potter was disappointing. Good observation.

Anyway, i have seen G.I. Joe:Rise of The Cobra, the movie is nice but Gaskiyya it can not still measure up to Transformers II. i also saw a couple more like Night In The Museum II Seriously i had a nice time, it was a nice comedy. I also saw a kung fu movie called Ip Man starring Donnie Yen, it was produced by Sammo Hung (you can understand my excitement right?), its a true life story set in the late 1930's during the WWII, believe me its tight, so captivating, sad and the story line was so intelligent, Donnie Yen deserves an academy for that movie.

This week i'm looking forward to watch Zombieland and  Final Destination 4.

I have watched Micheal Jackson's 'This is it'.
He is undoubtedly the king of pop. You should see what he did at age 50.

I also watched District 9. The production was superb,the story good but the ending was absolute rubbish. Sam sam bai yi ma'ana ba karshen. When i finished watching i just knew i have wasted some precious time.


BKGZ ina kake?
Na kalli Inglorious basterds after much pressure from my friend,a huge Quentin Tarantino fan. I must say it is a good movie,a very brutal/wicked one too. There's some good humuor in it also. If you love su Kill Bill,pulp fiction then you'll definately enjoy it.
One part i loved was when Fuhrer Hitler,during the premiere screening of the movie told the producer it was his best movie yet and the guy couldn't help crying.
But the part i loved most was when a german soldier refused to tell the basterds where the german soldiers were stationed. He proudly died for his country.
A must watch movie.

Movies i've watched:

Ninja Assassin: VERY VERY BRUTAL. It has Sho Kosugi starring in it.
Old Dogs: Comedy.John Travolta and Robbie Williams....I don't really like Robbie but its a good mpvie.I can rate it 3 out of 5 stars.
2012: Slept half of the movie. Too destructive. The story is just a depiction of Noah's arc nothing more. I love the character 'Yuri'
Not Easily broken: Morris Chestnut. I kinda love black american movies.
The ugly truth: Laughed till the end.

I yesterday started watching 2012 but I couldn't finish; the film contains too much destruction. And if you closely watch your TV screen you'll understand it's just computer-made destruction. That reduces the vitality of it sosai wallahi.

I thereafter watched one Indian-American-British film entitled Bride and Prejudice. A love story. It was so intriguing; I enjoyed watching it.

It's NOT that, GGNK.

It's only what I term "adult" film, for it contains scenes of that "practice". Even the scenes are sporadic and not that explicit. More-over, I reason with the film's crew when I read further about the history of England's King Henry the 8th whom the film is about. What I here mean is: the acts are ctually in the original storyline of the film.

Kai! Wallahi I was under impression that the film was just being overrated and over-celebrated ashe it's in fact beyond that! Awesome. I'm short of words to say more.

A friend downloaded it and gave me days ago. Notwithstanding I'm amidst doing exam I sacrificed good two hours and watched it completely. I enjoyed every scene, every more and every single word.

Wow, everyone's raving about Avatar and I havent even seen it! Is it really that good? I did read an article about the

nature of the storyline that put me off it permanently - the whole "white man must save the savages (a la pocahontas)"

attitude. Anyways, maybe i'll watch it someday..

I did watch Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland the other day and I loved it!!! Lewis Carroll's book on is still one of my favourite

books. I loved the twist to the story, it was set in the future, considering Alice had once been in Wonderland when she was

a child and now she has returned but she doesn't remember a thing - nice! I loved the quirkiness! I did find it a little on the

scary side but it's all good....4/5 stars :)

I saw Valentine's day sometime ago and it was just blah... It was trying so hard to be like the Brit Film Love Actually but failed

at it! The stories were too many, the movie was too short, you didn't get time to grasp the full depth of the stories...Then to

add insult to injury - Taylor Swift's acting! Oh my goodness! Whoever told her she could act doesn't like her at all!!! That role

would have been so much more convincing if they had cast Amana Byrnes, but no... *I shake my head* 2.5/5 stars. On the

plus side, I liked Jessica Biel's part of the story - The I hate Valentines day dinner, complete with an I hate Valentines day

pinata. now that's original...

Can't wait for Bounty Hunter with Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston, From Paris with Love and Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo on the Cliff!!

I haven't waited this long for an anime movie! 2 years in suspense....

This week, harkan academy awards nominated movies zanyi, i'm looking into watching The Hurt Locker (let me see whats in the movie that gave it all the awards), Sandra Bullocks The Blind Side, the Watchoskies brothers Ninja Assassin (finally i've got it), Eric Banners The Time Travelers Wife, Disneys The Princess and The Frog, The Invention of Lying, Couples Retreat, and Goerge Clooney's Up In The Air and Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Fateez, Avatar is not about whiteman saving the natives, its a triumph against invaders and its a fantastic movie. A movie which television and all those involved with it can be proud of. I say regardless of the Oscars, its the best picture of the year and will only go down with the Lord of the rings to tie with. You should see it.

Yes Law abiding citizen was tight. Gerard butler na tashe abun shi.

I will suggest you watch Shutter Island,if you like some real complication/suspense.
Also watch My Name is Khan. Its the best movie so far,never mind the fact that its Indian ba traditional soyayyar India bace.
The blind side is another lovely movie.
If you love animation,the watch 'how to train a dragon'. Good for family viewing.

UmmuT, The Blind Side has been listed among the best movies I ever watched. Sandra Bullock was bomb.

hmm DB, dat is an interesting request, it is simple for most people but for a tv junkie like me we ll have to narrow it down.

wat do u like to watch, comedy, suspence, thriller, crime, drama(many categories), sci- fi, horror, super-natural, reality, adventure, fantacy, epic? the list goes on and on.

you are a guy so u ll probably like crime suspence, try CRIMINAL MINDS, i love it, a division of fbi dat studies human behaviour to solve crime, they deal with serial offenders, very interesting, its like csi but inside d brain of d criminal.

if u like comedy, i recently rewatched (is dat a word?) FRIENDS and i was beside myself, it was really a good show. its like watching MIND YOUR LANGUAGE when u are older, i used to watch it when i was younger, i watched it again in 05 n it was a new experience!

GGNK, pls alert me whenever you come to Kano. It seems you don't delete films on your system, or you have an external disk, true? Or do you have any alternative where I can get them (films)?

@DB, I recently watched one film, which I am sure, will interest you. It was a "truckload" hilarious comedy series entitled Every Body Hates Chris based on the Black-American sensational comedian Chris Rock.

Really, really paranoid, Ummutemeem. They have already built a heavy "blockage" rounding the building; security-alert entrance door and other security-coded doors; hundreds of fire extinguishers; and other strict defensive/protective stuff in case of any sort of attack. These alone are revelatory of what prompted them to close down the place for members. They still run some works, for e.g. conducting exams for UK universities entrance, etc, etc.

i watched angels and demons last night, nice,but im sure i wouldnt hav gotten it if i hadnt read d book first. too much info crammed in. but it was beta than da vinci code(in my opinion)

Have the book (Angels and Demons) for more than a year but I'm yet to read it from cover to cover. Although something happened that precludes me to finish (it) when I started reading it; my friend borrowed it, and when he returned the book it was tore apart. Sai duk ya fita daga raina wallahi.

And some weeks ago I was given the film. Gaskiyarki if one does not watch the film he'll hardly enjoy the film. Hence I just ignor it, though it's still on my system. Shall watch it soon, inshaAllah.

Lastly I am surprised you say its better than The Da Vinci Code. I prefer The Da Vinci Code a hundred and one more times to the Angels and Demons.

@ BKGZ inshaallah zan cika maka alkawari. Please PM me your addy and i'll get them sent.
@ Muhsin, using your CD rom drive will not harm your system in any way. Not using it might even make it to pack up due to non usage.
Do you know that your hard disk is a similar to your CD rom. It uses the same lens and disk technology.

I watched Prince of Persia finally.
Mennnnn, its a great movie with one of the best endings i've ever seen.

@Ummum, me i refused to watch the movie coz i still havent seen the Da Vinci Code due to piracy. But a cousin of mine told me that the movie Legion is full of blasphemies, manya manya ma kuwa, talking about Angels disobeying God and all. So i'm not seeingit either.

Of recent i acquired, Alice In Wonderland, Alvin and The Chipmunks II, The Book of Eli, Miss Conception, The Horsemen, Leatherheads and If Only.

And i have just watched Clash Of The Titans, How To Train Your Dragon (Wich i loved like crazy), Iron Man II (Ya hadu) and From Paris With Love. had fun.

Sex n d City 2 is coming to lag this month, cant wait!!!!!!!!!!!!


Hehe! Ummu Tameem, Guess what? I watched it last weeeeeeek! You should have seen how my friend and I hustled

to get pre-sale tickets one month early. I don't know what we were expecting...

Truth is it was mediocre at best. Honestly I wish they didn't make movies for this TV show! They took a fantastic series

and turned it into silly movies. Its like they took the worst episode from the series, made it 2 hours long and shot it in

Morocco which we're meant to believe is Abu Dhabi *yawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwn* Dont even get me started on the

cheesy "Muslim women are oppressed" stereotype. And Oh, Liza Minelli. What a WRECK! I give it 2.5 stars out of 5!

On the good side Aidan returns! Smith Jerrod returns! Now those 2 are worth watching it for  8) 8) 8)

Not to talk of the clothes...... :)

I watched 'green zone' 2 days ago. Its a very good movie.
It shows America's zalunci in Iraq. The fact that there were no WMD's and they knew it.
I also watched 'up in the air'. George Clooney. It was a very funny movie and i was laughing alone at midnight.

@ UmmuT: Death at a funeral was funny. I like the part where the guy with the rash on his hands was telling the widow how he corpse fell out of the coffin.
Some weird Lebanese lady however annoyed me while watching. I'm pretty sure she and her boyfriend (or husband) were high. They kept laughing even at things that were not funny.The attendants had to caution them.

@ Muhsin,i can't even remember where i was last weekend. I think i was in Katsina. Yes.

The film was amazing. I enjoyed every second I watched. Only I have yet finished; the last season (i.e. 3) is faulty. I bought a new one at CD World, Civic Centre, Kano but it still doesn't work. Returned it, they don't have another. I therefore just took another another in its stead. Mts! I can't remember when last I bought a DVD/CD with my money, my money!  ::)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was actually released in 2008. But the film's vitality is still alive; so it'll remain, in fact. Hence it engulfs numerous awards. I enjoyed the film. I can't even describe that, wallahi. Those people are endlessly and unimaginably creative.

Muda, I watched The Expendables. The film is just filled with interesting actions; while the dialogue is very mundane and uninteresting. That lessens the film's fancy. Any ways, I don't know how you perceived it.

Yeah The Expendables wasnt all that in terms of dialogue and all, but it's filled with literally explosive excitements, it's the only movie were you see the who's who of classic action stars light up the screen for pure combustible entertainment in a typical Stallone's style, a sort of Dirty Dozen meets Inglourious Basterds kind of thing, gashi kuma the movie is unique in its casting, peppered with funny dialogue, epic brawls and supersized explosions you will think Michael Bay directed it.

i havent seen criminal minds in a while, im begining to have withdrawal symptoms, lol, really i miss it, n i refuse to buy d dvd (probably not complete).

@muda, im not too sad dat ur hard drive crashed (on account of d pirated movies), now u ll get clear ones, watching pirated takes d beauty out of movies, bought INCEPTION for my husband, unfortunately it was pirated, he watched it but i dont think he really enjoyed it. me i dont touch pirated, i wait........... patience.

@ UmmuT i haven't watched boiler room. At first i didn't want to watch eclipse because the second one disappointed me so much i hated the whole twilight.

I watched a movie 'brooklyn's finest'. I don't know actually how to rate the movie. The story is good or maybe the production but film din ya bani haushi sosai.

Unthinkable  such a nice entertaining movie, life and direct, Samuel L. Jackson at his best, the dialogue was intriguing, its a most watch, talks about the veiw of Terrorism according to the US and how they handle the issue (contemporary).

@ muda, eyya, sorry, i can imagine, u ll get new ones. try n get hold of SALT, it is fantastic, so many twists, n hey its a chick kicking men's a. . . ., wats there not to like, loved it, u will too, i assure u.

The social network is also a good one.
Predator wasn't so spectacular.

I am still waiting for 'the tourist' also. Its going to be good.

Here are my must watch list:
Unstoppable (inspired by a true story. Very courageous act)
Due date (you go laugh tire,not Obasanjo's kind of 'i dey laugh' o)
 I learnt that Chronicles of Narnia, Harry potter 7 and Tangled are good ones worth watching.
I have watched Tron the legacy but it wasn't that spectacular. It could have been done in 90mins but it took more than 2 hrs. Plus the cinema i watched it was not good. The lights were flickering and the sound was not good.

Avartar? Sai yanzu? Tsohon labari. Wallahi don't waste your valued time watching Hurt Locker. It really sucks, as Americans would say; and it hurts I say. It's, more-over, unnecessarily lengthy. I enjoyed nothing watching the film, I tell you. But I don't know or maybe you'll find it interesting; or someone here already found it interesting.

Muhsin, thank you for this comment, that Hurt Locker is a total waste of time, very boring, it took me 4 days to finish it, and I was only forced to watch it to see what was in it that it beat the Avatar at the 2010 Academy Awards.

I have seen a lot of movies these days, Takers, very beautiful movie, Salt, nice but exaggerative, no woman is that good ever, I have gotten Inception, will watch it soon, I have loads of movies, all of them clear original versions, I don't even know how to start watching them, @Ummumtameem. I have got me a new external Drive lol.

This 2011, will be explosive in movies I tell you, I call it the year of the comics, so many comic movies in production and awaiting realease, Batman 4, Transformers 3, Superman 2, Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern, Mission Impossible:Ghost Protocol, can wait for them! .
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: gogannaka on February 07, 2011, 04:51:59 PM
Hurt Locker is such a bad movie. The story makes no sense at all. It won the award for best production. Actually,remove all bias and you should see the effort made at production. The movie is kind of like 3D and you could feel yourself in the movie,as if you were right in it.
Perhaps the producers and directors saw the perfection in the production. It was something no one had ever done. Too bad its a very very poor movie.

Watched the Green Hornet,it was fabulous,you go laugh tire.
Watched the Tourist also, it has a very sweet twist.

@ Muda, Your comment about Angelina Jolie in salt, can be regarded as sexist....beware lol.

Next in line is 'Battle Los Angeles'

Funny, bcos that's precisely why I like them - they take time to finish. I can watch in bits. Five minutes here, ten minutes there. Unlike a movie that you need complete at a go. But I understand the frustrations if/when you can't get the next season.

Unless you're sure you want to reply, please consider starting a new topic.

Above really struck me with astonishment. I wonder how come? Where are all the forum members, especially Muda, the Mod and the author of this very thread? O, I remember: snaptu/facebook/twitter/ubersocial/name it. He, along with others, are actively there. "We" are also there, yet we can still make it here. How I wish everyone can do as such, if not better?!

That was just a by the by. I, these days, watched and I'll still watch more films. Let me share the titles of some with you:

Splice
Drive Angry
Hostel (1&2)
The Special Relationship
Priest
Maiden Heist
A Walk to Remember
Detective Dee and Mystery of Phantom Flame
Arabian Night
Shelter


Who watched any of these?  :)

You are right about the facebk, snaptu, twitter thing. And like you said, you are there and still find time to peep in here. Truth be told, I tasted those social sites and to me they are just shallow. Ba wani abin sha'awa. There's nothing to hold your interest, nothing serious being discussed, you learn nothing there.


Back to topic; I have never even heard of those films you mentioned.
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: Muhsin on September 22, 2011, 07:45:42 PM
Well, serious discussions sometimes take place, but that happens once at a time. A user just updates his/her status, telling "friends" what they think, feel, imagine, etc. It's many a times something so trivial and unworthy of any discussion, hence that attracts only a few people's attention. In contrast, women's, or better girls' updates get special (and undue) comments while each commenter tries to get her special acknowledgement. I always laugh at this. The only advantage of those social networks (facebook, particularly) is when one "like" news out-lets where u'll be getting updates on their news.     Back to topic: it's surprising what u said. I watched one more yesterday; u'll hardly know this as well, for it's quite new--2011. It's titled: The Mechanic. If you like action film, get this one. Statham acted very well.be getting updates on their news.     Back to topic: it's surprising what u said. I watched one more yesterday; u'll hardly know this as well, for it's quite new--2011.

Hahah.  I was laughing about the status updates on facebook/twitter etc. You are right, it is so trivial and childish. "enroute to abuja", "am sick pray 4 me", "am hunrgy", "just woke up", "wassup peeps?". Mtsssw. Shirme kawai. And like you mentioned, a girl will only post "Hmmmn", and hundred guys will descend on her page, trying very hard to out-do each other in commenting :D :D

I like Jason Statham. He's an action man, he plays both villain and hero and  he is good at each. I like action films, so I'll try look for The Mechanic.

Usually the directors of the movies he plays make the action disturbing,the moves are so fast its not clear what is happening till after the action (thats how i see it anyway).

These are movies i enjoyed lately:
Adjustment Bureau
Fast five
Toy story 3
Green Lantern
The Kings' speech
Title: Re: On The Couch
Post by: Muhsin on September 24, 2011, 01:57:44 PM
Unlike BKGZ, I also don't like  Statham, but for a diferent reason, i.e he hardly acts in a film without him taking part in somewhat dirty sexual acts. He's so promiscous, I believe. He's of course a one-man army but second-rate to Steven Seagal, whom I totally hate. His (Statham's) English too is not very decipherable, but I understand it except in one film: The Bank Robbery. And I think that happened to me bcus the film is set in 70s, hence all the xters in the film speak archaic English.        Yesterday I watched Christ Rock's heart-cracker film, Head of State. Go for this film if u want to laugh. Lastly, I'll look for those films you watched, GGNK. I know whichever film u praise is praiseworthy. You are not a novice in this matter.

Fair enough ;) Oddly enough, one of the reason I'm not too interested in Travolta's films is I don't usually understand his turanci. The way he speaks. Now goga is saying the same about Statham.

I maybe wrong, though, in saying he's promiscuos as I don't know him in real life and hence lack the firsthand to substantiate my claim. But with the little I know in films, he IS, I reiterate. Or his directors give him the bad roles. Did u watch Crank? He has sex in a public place--a busy road. Nasty similar acts occur in his many other films. a public place--a busy road.

You forgot two other stars: Terry Crews and Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film is very much below expectation. It shud have been a Hollywood flop if not for some reasons. I think Stallion had plans to film it a sequel, but it's like he thought better of that and rescinded the idea.
Besides, watched some films weeks back. Recommendable ones among them are: "Gifted Hands; The Ben Carson Story", "Freedom Writers", "Easy A", "The Borgeous", and about to start "Iris" soon.
