Yes Man
I did not set out with too many expectations from this one. Jim Carrey and his repetitive histrionics make me wary. Yet, Yes Man was a surprise and a treat at the same time. A simple, sweet story which would bring some smile and sunshine to one and all.

Gulaal
I have been wanting to watch this one for ages now. Though I would love to do a detailed analysis of this one, yet, I feel the post would either come out as insufficient or verbose. Yes, an extreme post for an extreme movie. All I can say is, it is one of the most riveting and intelligent movies of recent times. A must watch for all.

Quickgun Murugan
A mindless movie with some silly twists and turns. Enjoyable only for the first time.

Stoneman Murders
Kay Kay Menon is the reason I went for this flick. However, I was extremely pleased with the overall movie. Tight script, superb editing, masst acting by one and all. The plot is partially based on actual incidents. How the writer and director mix fact with fiction is what makes this a must watch.

Kaidan
Ok, by now you must have guessed that I like to watch movies. Be they Indian/Foreign - as long as they are well made - I am game. I was very keen on watching this thriller-cum-horror flick. The movie was made in the 1960s and it was fun to watch an old, Japanese movie. Yet, well, I don't have much to say about this one beeecaausseee, umm, I slept off ! OMG - what a slow and a boring flick !!

Wanted
I don't like Salman. I never wanted to see this one. Yet, all the brouhaha surrounding it made me rethink my stubbornness. A complete masala and paisa vasool movie. Nope, It didn't give me any fodder for thought. Yet, they were lots of rib tickling moments which made this a good time pass movie.

@Allthecrap - Gulaal is a fabulous movie. I liked the protagonist too :-)

I stopped liking Salman in the late 90s or so...
