The Descendants                                                                                                              
The Descendants is a beautifully directed comedy drama:). Here, with his wife Elizabeth on life support after a boating accident, Hawaiian land baron Matt King takes his daughters on a trip from Oahu to Kauai to confront the young real estate broker, who was having an affair with Elizabeth before her misfortune.This movie works mainly because of its superb direction:). Alexander Payne gives the movie a very realistic approach.Also the movie benefits from a well written script,the characters,especially George Clooney's character is very well written and it is very difficult to predict what he will do next.Also worth mentioning is the wonderful music throughout the film:).The entire cast of the movie has done a great job,especially George Clooney who gives a very real and an award winning performance:). Overall,the descendants is a very well made fun movie to watch:).

We Bought a Zoo                                                                            
We Bought a Zoo is a perfect movie to watch with your entire family:). Especially kids will love this movie:). This movie is set in Southern California.Here, a father moves his young family to the countryside to renovate and re-open a struggling zoo.While watching this movie,you will always be involved with it,as the characters have their ups and downs.You will laugh and cry with them:). Matt Damon has done a good job,but its the little Maggie Elizabeth Jones as Rosie Mee who totally steals the show:). She is too cute and you will smile in every scene she is present:).

Johnny English Reborn

  1. nice one.. but few movies i won't say 'recent' releases!! :)

  2. Thanks:). Recent meaning 2011 da:).

  3. good list.. old though..but all the movies listed here are def. worth a watch.

    Glad to have found you at Indiblogger. Your newest follower and a regular visitor now.

  4. Nice list bro. I have watched three of these. Will watch The Descendants and No Strings Attached soon.. although you shouldn't count on it. :P We Bought A Zoo was a nice movie and I'd prefer if you kept such movies for future viewings rather than The Island. :P Nice family fun. Rosie was cute! ;-) Scarlett's performance was much better here than in The Island. And Rowan Atkinson never disappoints. He is a slapstick genius. Cars 2 was another lighthearted comedy. Way to go man, you're on a roll. Keep 'em coming!
