Some Movie Reviews

23 12 2008

Today I came to work after three days; I have three days weekend in December (taking every Monday off in December from my vacation as I did not use up all of my vacations allocated for the year and they will expire by end of the year). Anyway, last Friday we had holiday party in the evening at work; so on Friday starting from the lunch break, we all the girls at work were spending time in getting ready, putting makeups, dressup, and hairup for the party πŸ˜€ ; the party was a lot of fun as the people at my work are very nice and friendly.

So, today at work, I got a lot of things piled up; and I am finishing them up one by one, and now taking a break and writing here πŸ˜›

Besides the work party on last Friday, I watched two movies during the weekend. I watched the movie called Bolt in Disney 3-D on Sunday evening in a theater near my home in Astoria with a work friend. The movie was great! I enjoyed every single bit of the movie; it was funny, emotional, and touchy. Also watching it with a close friend added extra charm to it πŸ™‚

I also watched Slum dog Millionaire on Saturday afternoon. The movie was not that great although some of my friends said it was good and funny. It was little bit of like Hindi (Indian) movies style, and I do not like Hindi movies. I personally also do not like any violence and the movie had a lot of violence in it that were very disturbing to me.

I also watched Twilight a few days ago on a lazy Friday when I did not have anything to do after work; so just watched it in the theater near my home; I liked that movie too but not as much as Bolt.

I would recommend Bolt to anyone who wants to have some nice relaxed time to watch a funny and emotional cartoon film.





Just something …

It has been a while since I wrote something in my blog. So today I was thinking what to write … There is nothing special going on in my life to write about. But there are lots of things happening around me … The economic crisis, a number of friends loosing jobs, people moving out of NYC (there was a time when people used to come to NYC for opportunities, now it seems to be the opposite); the city is getting too expensive to live in, MTA planning to raise the subway fare by some 23%, and so on. We just had two special holidays (Thanksgiving and Eid-Ul-Adha). My Thanksgiving was great! But I got sick right before the Eid – caught cold and flue; I was looking forward to celebrating Eid with my family as I had the day off from work on Monday; but the flue attacked me on Sunday. I spent the whole Eid day in bed sneezing, itchy throat, fever. 😦 I am getting better now, but I think I might get stuck with the cough for sometime. Anyway, hopefully I can write something interesting soon … This is just a post to keep my blog updated πŸ˜€
