My Thoughts:
This is a movie I have on a Triple Feature DVD release called Gritty Horror Tales. Basically the story of a mother going psycho on her children during a bad case of postpartum depression. For the most part I liked the movie a lot... but there is one downfall for me here. And unfortunately it is a pretty big downfall. I just didn't care about any of the characters. This did take away from the film some. Other then that... the intensity of the story was good. It kept my interest through-out once it got started. Though the first about 20 minutes is a bit slow. Over-all the movie is worth watching.


My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham…, a review by dfmorgan


Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham...


Year: 2001
Director: Karan Johar
Cast: Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Hrithik Roshan
Overview: Yashovardhan Raichand (Amitabh Bachchan) and his wife Nandini (Jaya Bachchan) have raised their sons, Rahul (Shah Rukh Khan) and Rohan (Hrithik Roshan) showering them with love and affection. Yash has tried to pass on to his sons the values, heritage and traditions of the family.

Nandini has different dreams for her sons. Dreams of love that she wanted both her sons to experience, more so Rahul as she shares a special bond with him. A bond that has been cultivated with love for a child that was never meant to be ... a child who was adopted. Rahul's adoption was a secret never discussed in the Raichand household. Ever since Rahul found out at the age of 8 years, it became the reason for his unending gratitude for his parents - especially his father. His father's every wish became a command for him. A command which he never breaks until he falls in love with Anjali (Kajol) - a bubbly girl from Chandni Chowk, who dotes on her younger sister Pooja (Kareena Kapoor). Rahul marries Anjali and brings her home but his father doesn't approve of her. Rahul thus decides to leave home causing his mother's every waking moment to be spent eagerly awaiting his return. Seeing this the younger son Rohan makes a promise to reunite the family and bring back the happiness they once shared.

Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham (K3G) is directed by Karan Johar whose first film Kuch Kuch Hota Hai has so far been the highest grossing Indian film. Yash Johar and Karan Johar have assembled the largest star cast ever and created one of the most spectacular films of Indian cinema. K3G has in fact surpassed their own earlier film and is already the most successful Indian film of all time.

Watched: 30th. Jan 2011
My Thoughts: Another wonderful recommendation. A weepy again but with plenty of songs and dance. A father and son become estranged and the first half of the film details the where and when behind the estrangement whilst the second half shows how the younger son tries to bring about the family reconciliation.

My Rating: An enjoyable 3+ +

     Black Adder IV: Black Adder Goes Forth (1989/United Kingdom)
IMDb | Wikipedia

(United States)
Length:178 min.
Video:Full Frame 1.33:1
Audio:English: Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround
Subtitles:


Plot:
The Western Front 1917: There's disorder in the ranks when that numb-headed ninny, Captain Blackadder, stumbles onto the battlefields of WWI and discovers that people are trying to kill him. The British may be able to defeat the Germans, but it's unlikely they'll ever survive a comic assault by Blackadder.

Black Adder
4.01 Captain Cook
Writer: Richard Curtis (Writer), Ben Elton (Writer)
Director: R Boden
Cast: Rowan Atkinson (Captain Edmund Blackadder), Tony Robinson (Private S Baldrick), Stephen Fry (Gen. Sir Anthony Cecil Hogmanay Melchett), Hugh Laurie (Lt. Hon. George Colthurst St. Barleigh), Tim McInnerny (Captain Kevin Darling)

The fourth series is also really great. The World War I setting works surprisingly well. The final scene of the series is one of the best scenes in the entire series.
