Woah ! Headrush …

Phew …
Finally … some time to get back to blogging …

The past few days had been over the head … hectic …
Race against time and all the yada yada … to complete this CD Magazine that our college is coming out with …
Shouldnt be counting the chickens before they hatch … but have finished about 80 – 90% of the stuff … demo-ed it to the teachers and a selected few friends and the reviews have been pretty good … and best of all … no changes whatsoever …
The most difficult part about any project ( esp graphics designing ) is to get everybody to be happy …

Also, was busy with this Inter Collegiate event, which, I am happy to announce went off much more smoothly than I had expected …
So much, that our delighted H-O-D complied with our request and declared Monday to be a Holiday for the entire Comp Dept.
Woohoo :)

Today, caught the morning show of ‘The Aviator’ at INOX …
This is the first movie in which … I have felt nothing about the movie … during the entire course of the film and even afterwards …
Maybe it was the front – row seats that we ended up in … or the very rare Housefull at INOX … I don’t know …
But the movie just started, got over and I was there … three hours later … and felt nothing.

I will have to agree that the movie is awesome-ly made … and that Caprio didnt even let me feel for one moment, that he was acting …
The USA of 1930 – 1950 has been recreated nicely … with all the aristocricies and the likes … but the movie doesn’t tell much about Howard Hughes, other than his strong liking for making expensive movies and planes.

“A Beautiful Mind”, according to me, was a much better biography by far … and was more satisfying …

The Aviator just covers some 20 years of Howard Hughes’ life ( from his twenties to his fourties ) which leaves us with no head or tail … really …
Its just a sequence of events one after the other …

But at the same time, I must admit, that there isn’t one boring moment during the entire three hours and I never felt the movie dragging …

The movie has got a very impressive cast with Kate Blanchett and Kate Beckinsale and lots of other stars who have done justice to their character …

I especially like Kate Blanchett’s portrayal of Katharine Hepburn.

Ending this, want to make a strong protest against the cutting of film done at theatre – level … where all these theatres cut around 10 – 20 minutes from each movie just so that they can get an extra show in …
Damn SOBs …

Anyways … we were totally lost in seeing Beckinsale’s character … as she just appears abruptly out of no where in the film … no introduction … nothing …
This, I feel was definitely cut in addition to 3 dialogues which were very very visible cut in the course of the film …
