Ocean's 13

I recently watched this movie. I liked Ocean 11 and Ocean 12 very much so I was looking forward to watch Ocean's 13. But what was more attractive was inclusion of Al Pacino as the Villian in this movie. I like Al Pacino most and in this movie he played his role brilliantly. He is an actor who can carry the whole movie on his shoulders but here in this movie we also have superb acting from George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.

The story line of this movie and the execution is far more better than the previous two installments and there is also some surprises at the end.

Overall this is the best movie of the Ocean's series.

A Must watch.

The Bourne Ultimatum

Yesterday I watched the movie "The Bourne Ultimatum". Its the third installment of the Jason Bourne Series and I must admit that Matt Damon is doing justice to the character.

Definitely its story plot is one of the best in the movie series. However it was not as good as The Bourne Supremacy but was better than The Bourne Identity.

Here's a quick story overview: The movie starts in Russia where Jason is escaping the police probably right after him telling the truth to Neski's daughter. He escapes and then communicates with a Journalist who is writing on him, from here the chase again begins and this time Bourne shows his superiority over CIA intelligence. By the end one secret of Bourne's past is revealed and Bourne is the Beginning of It and He has to end it.

This movie is not based on the Novel neither was the previous ones but I consider it to be best as after going through the novel I think that this movie is more appropriate on terms of story at present era. The novel was suitable for that era.

A Must watch for those who love real spy movies.

One recommendation : If you are James Bond fan then let me tell you this movie is far more better than James Bond movies in terms of Spy and their life but it will definitely disappoint you if you watch movie only for the gadgets of James Bond or the Girls. Real Spy movie would never have storyline as the James Bond movies have.

Must Watch as well as Collectible.

My life is going to change

Very soon my life is going to enter into new phase. After 21st October 2007, it won't remain same. I don't know whether I am prepared for it or not but I am accepting this.

Due to this I was unable to pot on the blog for such a long time. There was anther problem. My Internet was not working and I don't prefer to post from Cyber Cafe but now I have activated Vodafone Mobile Conect on my cell phone and now I can use unlimited Internet for a monthly rental of 499 Rs. It was not easy as I had to convert my prepaid mobile to postpaid mobile.
Then I activated the Vodafone mobile connect facility but I didn't received the settings so I filed a complaint in Customer Care, they informed me that they will contact me back in 48 hours and thus my Internet was active on 10th oct 2007.

I will post the method for Sony Ericsson's W550i in my next post so that anybody who wants to get it activated on Sony W series mobile phones then they can use the method.
