Some good movies recently

Posted on 1 Comment

Today, I got to watch i, Robot movie, featuring Will Smith. Although it’s a quite old movie now (released in 2004), the reason it being a futuristic science fiction attracted me to watch it. Earlier I got several chances to watch the film, but I couldn’t really build up my mind to watch it at those times.

I had suspected the movie to be another of those unrealistic fiction types, but I was certainly proven wrong as the movie proceeded towards the end. Though one cannot easily imagine a world full of human-serving robots and it’s consequences, Isaac Asimov has described that scenario wonderfully in his book i, Robot, on which the film is based. I was surprised to find out later that the original book was first published way back in 1950. Damn! This particular author had a brilliant imagination and creativity at that time too! Of course there is no doubt this and other works of his make him one of the most influential science fiction authors of all time.

The ending of the movie was very good and the script, the events, and Will Smith’s acting (of course) were all well put out. All in all, I really enjoyed the movie and was deeply inspired by it. You just ought to watch it, if you haven’t yet already.

Another good movie I saw recently was Ocean’s Eleven. Ask me honestly and I would say this was the best one I had seen in some past 1-2 years. The story was good, the whole acting crew very good, and the comedy was just fantastic. Add to that the “sophisticated” style acting of George Clooney and the dashing Brad Pitt. And then there was one of may favorites Matt Damon too. All the other artists were good too. So, all in all I really enjoyed watching this movie, so much that I would still love to see it again and again and again and again!

I am impatiently waiting to see Ocean’s Twelve which is the sequel of Ocean’s Eleven. Hey, there is Ocean’s Thirteen too. So, some nice movies are just waiting for me around the corner. 😉
