Fos pou svini, To (2000) aka Fading light is the greek movie, I was talking abt in my earlier post and the actress i was referring to was Viki Volioti . i can sometimes push myself just too hard to remember things.the last two days,I had been fervently searching the web (googling mainly) to get these details.IMDB was pretty bad when it came to plot search.but finally googled SBS to get these details.after getting the movie title, i started diligently searching for Viki Volioti’s picture and couldn’t find anything on google, Yahoo helped me in finding that she is also known as Vicky Volioti and then i got to see some pics, she looked good but i was not impressed with those pics (not her).I read somewhere that yahoo’s search is getting better (than google’s), i would agree to an extent because when i search for kesavan on yahoo my 2 sites come in the first page, while in google they don’t should justify what i read abt yahoo, i suppose.
while searching for the greek movie, i was also trying to remember a very good aussie movie which i saw 6-7 months ago and i remembered it as Malcom (1986), a movie abt a very very likeable character, i remember that the soundtrack was also impressive.
the thing that surprised me was i found it extremely difficult to find these movies on the internet. i guess there is nothing like a human brain when it comes to processing and finding data hidden somewhere in the grey cells.
i am sitting here, typing this on a friday night after having pizza from ilianas, after a hard days work (my boss would not agree, but i am entitled to my opinions and for god’s sake it’s my site) and after meeting someone I really like and am unable to forget. am working tomorrow as well, so guess should get gud nights sleep, as i start early.c what is in store tomorrow.
just finished watching Malena on SBS and enjoyed watching it.the main characters in the film are a 13 year old boy and a very attractive women played by eminently endowed Monica Bellucci .showing the impact that a woman can have even on a young boy.it also shows how rumour and jealousy can play a big part in ruining peoples life and how time is a big healer.the film was gr8 to watch not only because of Bellucci, but also because I like seeing Italian architecture creating wonders in the streets of sicily.
i love seeing european films, most of them seem to have a soul in them, they are very realistic and people oriented, exploring the emotions of humans against the backdrop of beautiful architecture.some other films i enjoyed watching are Fabuleux destin d’AmÃ©lie Poulain, Le (AmÃ©lie, 2001)– the innocent screen charmer , Abre los ojos (1997) – the english version Vanilla Sky which i didnt like much.
One of the best films I had seen was a greek one, the title of which i am unable to remember, to my dismay.the film was abt this boy who is a gr8 violonist (misses his father who is divorced from his mother), tries to come in terms with his mother’s new lover and while losing his sight is helped by a very very beautiful teacher (i wud like to remember the name of the movie, just, so i can get more info on this actress) all in a picturesque greek island, just amazing.i shall leave the review to the people @ The Internet Movie Database, as they seem to know what they r doing, unlike me.
thanks SBS for showcasing these movies, i am not sure wheteher i would have been able to watch these movies back in India.
that’s it for now, not working 2morrow (semantically 2day), but wud love 2 get 2 bed, without having to worry abt getting up-to go to work.
it is great to know that the Film Nayakan (1987) is in Time Magazines Top 100 movies.I like Kamal Hassan (the actor) and Mani Ratnam (the director), these guys are widely respected in the Indian film industry and also in abroad.
it is also interesting to note that most of the top 100 films are non hollywood based guess these films are recognised not only for the fine perfomance by the actors and great direction of the directors, but also because of the universality of the themes presented and also their relevance even today.
i am not the best person to tell abt the intricacies of moviemaking or the sometimes subtle meaning in movies, but the movies I enjoyed watching apart from Nayakan are Goodfellas (1990) and Pulp Fiction (1994).
i wud have included One flew over the cuckoos nest (1975) , if i had a chance, but who am i to include or exclude???
1:30 pm here and am still awake (or atleast typing this).Just wanna write, which I seem to enjoy (yesterday) was a gr8 day (I wish)..No just an average day, went for a walk along Brighton Rd for abt 40 mins, the weather was gr8 especially in the last 20 mins (around 5:00 pm), then went to a friends place as Mango (mangaraju my house mate and friend) asked me to come with him, after this met with the duo of Sri and Prasad (other friends) @ Hare Rama hare Krishna in sth melb (Danks St) and also Sri’s friend (trio) hritesh and (what, after trio) another guy ..das ( who seems to preach Krsna consciousness).A lively (?) discussion on gita and way of living followed, as usual I was for most part a silent spectator, Das also talked about a Krsna consciousness meeting held every sat abt 7:45pm, maybe will go sometime.
What followed was something very exciting, well am, just teasing.Went to Bombay Club in Ormond (just opposite to Ormond railway station) had a nice dinner, paid by Prasad.
here I am after looking @ a few things on the internet (what kind of things does one look @, @ this time??, before u start assuming, was looking @ some other blogs to get an idea of how I can improve this one, was also looking @ a few other things).
Pity there seems to be no alternative for DC++ for Mac, as I was told DC++ is gr8 in windows.At the moment I feel that Limewire is a gr8 software, really fast file sharing program for Mac.As for as torrents are concerned Bits On Wheels is a great BitTorrent client for Mac.My fav IndianTorrent/Indian torrents site is tmstorrents (torrent files for Indian Movies and Songs) and for torrents search Torrent Typhoon seems to be very good.
maybe end with this 2day.
This is interesting, History of people, History of time (briefly) and now history of websites. An interesting piece of History.
