About Nemo

Nemo is the typical movie buff. Well, he hates popcorn though! He watches every kind of movies, in languages he can understand, some he cant. His tastes in movies can only be matched by his diversity. He flows with the film. Get scared in horror ones, tear up in tragedies, and laugh his ass off in comedies. He can give you killer reviews and he doesn't miss many, so you are in for a treat! By Dory

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (2009)

Imdb link : http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0417741/

Director : David Yates

Genre : Adventure,Fantasy,Mystery.

Cast:Daniel Radcliffe (Harry) ,Michael Gambon (Professor Albus Dumbledore),Emma Watson (Hermoine),Rupert grint (Ron), Bonnie Wright(Ginny),Alan Rickman(Snape),Helena Bonham Carter(Bellatrix),Tom felton (Draco) and Evanna Lynch (Luna).

Review:In the sixth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft, and in both wizard and muggle worlds Lord Voldemort and his henchmen are increasingly active. With vacancies to fill at Hogwarts, Professor Dumbledor persuades Horace Slughorn, back from retirement to become the potions teacher, while Professor Snape receives long awaited news. Harry Potter, together with Dumbledore, must face treacherous tasks to defeat his evil nemesis Voldemort.

The film was worse, really worse if you have read the book.Every important thing,like Harry’s increasing involvement with the Half Blood Prince’s book and his insight into Voldemort’s early life, were all just secondary happenstance to the several budding romances between the lead characters.Which was frustrating at times.They miss out so many crucial points that you can’t figure out what’s happening if you haven’t read the book.The whole movie revolves around Romance and all and finished very soon IMO.Me being a huge potter maniac liked the movie,and i should.But overall the movie wont excite people who haven't read the book.

Dan was too good for his role,(except his height which is not growing at all),Helena Carter was evil and annoying,Michael Gambon was exceptional in the scene at the dark cave when Harry & Dumbledore retrieve one of the “Horcruxes”.The kid acted as young Tom riddle was excellent.Tom felton is promising. Rupert grint was good in his comic timing. Though Hermoine, Luna, Hagrid,Neville,ginny etc they didn't featured for much of the time in the movie.

Rating:2.5/5 *The Best Book...The Worst Movie*

Ice Age : Dawn of The Dinosaurs (2009)

Imdb link:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1080016/

Director: Carlos Saldanha,Mike Thurmeier (co-director)

Genre: Animation,comedy.

Cast(voices of):Karen Disher [Scratte],Ray Romano [Manny],Queen Latifah[Ellie],Denis Leary[Diego],John Leguizamo[Sid],Josh Peck[Eddie] and Simon Pegg [Buck]

Review: Manny & Ellie have settled down and are expecting a baby mammoth. Diego is feeling out of shape as he can no longer chase down gazelles – he is considering quitting the herd. Sid is feeling left out with all this and he wants a family of his own too. Since he is hardly the perfect mating material, he does the next best thing - he finds three largish eggs in a cave and adopts them as his own.
Only, they hatch into baby dinosaurs . And very soon an angry momma dinosaur emerges from a hole in the ground to take her three kids back into their world below. And she takes the hapless Sid with her as well.

Excellent movie.The best among the sequels running on this days,Ice age beats Transformer and Salvation hands down.The animation was beautiful. With each film in the series, the animation gets better. The scenery and colors were great, and the characters were well done as well.There are two new characters introduced in the movie – Scratte, a female flying squirrel who more than flutters her eyelashes at Scrat. The other is Buck, a one eyed swashbuckler of a weasel, who navigates the subterranean with aplomb while sounding like Captain Jack Sparrow.
The film is for everyone and a must watch.Just go for it.

PS:The film is in digital-3d too.

Rating:3.5/5 *two thumbs up*

Transformers : Revenge of The Fallen (2009)

Imdb Link:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1055369/

Director:Michael Bay


Cast:Shia LaBeouf,Megan Fox,Josh Duhamel,Tyrese Gibson,John Turturro,Kevin Dunn and Julie White

Review:No doubt this is the most highly waited movie of this year beside Terminator salvation.Storyline grows from last part which shows autobots decided to stay back on earth. Decepticon forces return to Earth on a mission to take Sam Witwicky prisoner, after the young hero learns the truth about the ancient origins of the Transformers. Joining the mission to protect humankind is Optimus Prime, who forms an alliance with international armies for a second epic battle.

The movie lacks pace in first hour,with shia heading for new college and fighting with fox over who says "I love you first", but the movie after interval starting from ten mins before interval is pure adrenaline rush.Giant autobots,decepticons,breath taking fight scenes,shia's awesomeness in acting,hot Megan fox,this movie has all what it takes to be huge hit.But the script lacks much,feels like a script written by an 10 year old.

With somewhat bad script this movie can still be a huge hit cause of Shia(this guy is serious about his place in Hollywood now),the hot Megan fox(she has put on a bit weight for this one which looks so good on her),some new robots,hilarious Agent simmons and the scene when Optimus prime dies.The end fight where Optimus kills fallen finished off very soon though.The guy who plays shia's room mate is good for nothing.Overall this is a movie which has boring first half,action packed second half and certainly not better than first part.

Rating:2.5/5 *Great effects - story lacking*

The Hangover (2009)

Imdb Link:http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1119646/

Director:Todd Phillips


Cast:Bradley Cooper,Ed Helms,Zach Galifianakis,Justin Bartha and Heather Graham.
Mike Tyson too

Review:From the director of "Old School" comes a new comedy about a bachelor party gone horribly wrong. Two days before his wedding, Doug and his three buddies drive to Vegas for a blow-out night they'll never forget. But when the three groomsmen wake up the next morning with pounding headaches, they can't remember a thing. Their posh hotel suite is beyond trashed and the groom is nowhere to be found.For rest of the story watch the hillarious laugh riot.

For me it is definitely the funniest movie of the year. Instead of any one reason or sequence, the entire movie just works !! From start to finish ! And the movie succeeds in being a laugh riot without the vulgarity that inevitably accompanies every guys-only movie. The humour comes in form of smart one-liners, bizarre incidents and some really random images with the end credits !Mike Tyson also makes a guest appearance in the movie … and Zach Galifianakis was just whoawesome.

Rating:4/5 *Cant wait for Hangover 2*
