Movie Review-Sin City
Well, I admit it. I really miss college assignments, writing reviews,making short films so on and so forth. Finally got my hands on Sin City and I think it deserves to be written about. So here goes..
Sin City is one of those movies you want to talk about, it is one of those movies you would not want to shut up about. Rodriguez has outdone himself with his one-man crew way of filmmaking.I wouldn't call it his best though. The audience may be limited for this one, but for those who appreciate this type of story and the melodramatic way in which it's told...this is the ultimate. There has never been a film that has felt so much like a comic book leaping off of the page. The film is really dark and does have a lot of violence.The violence was essential and omnipresent in this movie.Murderers,rapists,thugs and death is what Sin City is all about.
Sin City is a stunning explosion of black and white, with splashes of red. And by red I do not mean blood-I'm not saying there's no blood-but there's a lot more to it the red - the red dress which makes an appearance in the movie, the sinful red lipstick ...and the ominous red clouds. It's stylized brilliantly, the black and white throughout the movie takes it to another level, it takes you to Sin City.
All you Quentin Tarantino fans out there-the man directs a segment.That's a big enough reason to watch it "Sin City".
When the unrecognizeable Mickey Rourke smashes through a door, cops go flying exactly as they do in comic books...and it looks real! Well...as real as it possibly can, but the point is that they get all the outrageousness of comics come to life in both the style/look of the film and the way in which the action sequences are filmed. Willis is good as always as are Del Toro and Clive Owen. The standouts to me were Rourke,the amazingly beautiful Jessica Alba, and both Nick Stahl and Elijah Wood.Elijah Wood is flat out freaky as a quiet little psycho and did a good job convincing the audience.
High contrast blacks and whites with occasional color splashed in make for a look like no other film ever made. And the action is almost any frame of it and turn it into a painting. The story...well, it's a bit thin and fragmented to be certain, but if you allow yourself to get lost in the world of Sin City, you won't care so much that the story isn't the greatest. Although it may have limited appeal, it's an amazing film that's a wonder to look at.
Sin City is fierce and unafraid, an assault on your senses and a dark, harsh tale in which characters struggle to do what’s right by doing wrong. It’s not bright or cheery and there are no happy endings, but what‘s here is shockingly beautiful.

Nothing's good enough...
Today -..I don't know if it's just irony or my luck..five friends..FIVE..decided to call and give me a yelling of a lifetime. I was basically told that I'm selfish, arrogant, got an attitude problem n a B*tch for not returning calls! Apparently,I'm the only one who's self obsessed n live in this tiny little bubble called MY WORLD! May be I haven't been returning calls or texting back..but lately all I want to do is be by myself..but no one seems to understand that.. For 3 years all I've done is put everyone's problems before mine..so much so, I've neglected myself. I think it's only fair to give myself this much deserved break. I'm done with college, got just one month to go before I move out of this city and get back to studying(postgrad) and working. Sigh..Am I the only one who feels this way? Or am I really selfish?
Mom figured that I was really low this evening..I was in such a crabby mood..the sweetheart that she is..she took me out shopping to make me feel better..did it help? Duh! Buying clothes definitely helps. And I figured if my friends actually thought I was being a bitch..that's their problem..not mine. If I don't get this break..I'll probably turn out to be a bigger b*tch! So I guess it's a win-win situation here..right?

Letter to G-my friend up there in heaven
Hey there big man!
How's it up there? I miss u so freakin' much monkey boy!! I'm sure the Lord got u theMacBook Pro and ur showing off with ur photoshop skills! Guess what..ur prediction came true..U.K's not happenin anymore..I changed my mind..I'm moving to Bangalore next month..hmmm..I wish I could jus pick up the phone n call u..We miss u G-boy..esp the 3 of us..U wanna know the truth? When u passed away..there was this void deep inside..people said "Time will Heal!" It's been nearly a year and that just doesn't seem to be happening! I was absolutely helpless..even now looking at our Kodai pics and videos make me cry..cycling by the lake..jus the 4 of us..sitting in the cold singing n u strumming the guitar..the sugar cube game..dancing around the bonfire.. sitting up till 4 in the morn craving for hot chocolate..playing soccer n u refusing the other guys from getting in the game since u were kicking my ass.. I jus refuse to believe ur not here anymore.
Going back to college after u passing away was awful..For God's Sake we used to sit next to each other in class..I was completely oblivious of what was happening around me..n u know how me n being spaced so don't go together..all the hyper-ness jus happened to go away..I had my soul sucked out the day the day u left! Even when we came to see u at the mortuary..u jus lay there smiling at us..! :( I love u G..u were an amazing friend..u stood by me,made me laugh when I was low,u got me loving the small things in life..I have nothing but gratitude and love for u! You really are the Golden light on the husks of grain !
The last time we were 2gether u bugged the hell outta me to sing for u.. i jus refused n ran away ..I really wish I had this..this one's for u G..
I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore
On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
Don't get too excited..It's by Nickelback..I didn't come up with it..wish u were here to play the guitar for me though..Bob's playing all the wrong chords...see u when I see u.. mwah!

The 20 Milestone
This jus so happened to be my best birthday ever..it started off with a couple of my really close friends frm college landing up home wid a birthday cake n singing happy birthday..full on rock style..! I was jus lying down in bed in my PJ's n one tank top on the phone..staring at my nails..! This definitely was a suprise..Suprised wud be an understatement..I had this blank look on my face..apparently mom n dad knew they were doing this for me! The cake smashing had to happen..after which mom told them some really embarassing stories of me..I really didnt mind since I was jus so god damn happy! Got some few calls n then went off to bed..!
Then my best frnd (Pallu) calls n says "Come home..I wanna take u out shopping..!"There was soo much to do at home since i was having a dinner for a couple of frndz..anyway I had to go..itz shopping..me saying NO to shopping..hellloooo..not happening! Yea so I landed up at her place n then her mom jus doesnt let of me..she jus talks to me about random things..then I walk into my Palu's room..and I see more then 25 ppl there..! It was the sweetest thing ever..my closest school friends n Palu's cousins were there..n her older sister helped wid the planning..it was the sweetest thing ever..her lil cousins made me a card..sang for me..smashed cake on my face..n the whole ordeal! I ran back home helped mom out like a little..poor thing got home early from work n cooked for more than 25 people..oh n btw..shez the best cook ever..anyone who's eaten her food..swears by it! Bro called in from San Fransisco spoke to me for like an hour or so..god damnit I miss him sooo much..really wished he could have been there! :(
Well.. then dinner happened..ppl started coming in by 7:30...there was enough booze for everyone..dad helped wid everything..mom was stuck in the kitchen as usual..n I was sittin in my room singing with everyone..everything went off really well..the food was awesome..everyone were in..ahem..high spirits..they were singing n dancing n posing n jumping around..everything happened! Except for a frnd who look all flustered..he kept runnin out wid his phone..talkin to a couple of friends who looked worried aswell..I was so frustrated by the end of it..n wanted to know wht the hell was happening..well unfortunately, I ruined another suprise they were supposed to throw me at a night club.. friends from college turned up there n ppl I worked wid at JWT..the whole dinner plan ruined it! Oh well..I was jus so touched that they took the extra step to make it so special for me..but no one wanted to leave..coz everyone were like I said..really tipsy..drivin that way was so not happening! So we stayed back..had this karaoke session..spoke about everything under the sun..n then it was time to leave since a really good friend of mine (Za) was leaving the city..we ended up being super emotional..n yeah we cried a hell of a lot..we've been there for each other for 3 whole years..like literally lived each others lives..we jus hugged n cried n cried n cried..all this in my hall...when the rest of them didnt know what was happening..they were jus sooooo drunk :)
Everyone left at 2 in the morn.. well..it still wasnt over..I had the presents to open..got some jewellery frm mom n dad..got both seasons of PRISON BREAK from a friend..gift vouchers..clothes..a plant..n tons of other things..I got more than i could have imagined!
I thought it was time to do some soul searching now ..Rite.! Soul Searching my ass! I sat in bed n thought think about what this really meant to me..Gratitude n love was all I had for every single friend of mine who helped make it my best birthday ever ..n then there this weird silence..I stared blankly at the wall..looking spaced out when it jus hit me..IM EFFIN 20! It all just ended with a bang..! Do u want to know what happened after that? Well..Nothing, I jus slept!
