And we're back! + my first movie review... (I need better comeback titles)



So after a decent hiatus I have once again returned to my little website here. I do seem to be taking these breaks a lot now don't I?

Well a lot has happened over the past few months and I will update all in this post!

Firstly, SHOOFtv. They came to our University and recruited Troops for their Shoof Troops competition to generate footage for their soon-to-be-launched TV channel. 2 months of grueling work for the Look Mommy I Can Act! Troop worked out just fine as they walked away with the grand prize of AED 30,000 worth of camera equipment (which is up for sale btw!).

I was given the opportunity to be the host for their award ceremony and I have Uzma to thank for introducing me to the SHOOFtv team. Thank you. You gave me my first shot. :)

Soon after the competition was over, we had our exams. However there was a catch for yours truly.

Euro 2008. 7th - 29th of June, 2008. SHOOFtv were co-organizers for a Fanpark for Euro 2008 at the Madinat Arena at Madinat Jumeirah. They needed a host. They asked me.

I. Was. Thrilled. (To say the least) I'd have to comment on a private tournament, hold competitions and basically keep the crowd alive and pumped 15 minutes before kick-off and during half time. I am in heaven. Heaven is a microphone.

The catch however: My papers were on the 8th, 9th, 10th and 11th. Four consecutive days and if I DID accept the job, it would mean that I was working on each night before each paper. This was a pickle indeedy-do! I was convinced I could do it. My papers started at 1pm every day, so if I finished all revision early then I could wake up at 8 every day for those first 4 days and study a good 4 hours until 12 where I set off to University to write my paper.

The hard part, I believed, would be to convince the parents. It turned out they were a bit more easily persuaded than I though. Struck up a quick deal: no life until papers, and I could go ahead and do the job. Big Brother, unfortunately, was not as easily convinced. But in the end he agreed, and now if I've screwed up my papers (which I think I haven't) then I'm REALLY dead. If I do well then, ha!

So I took the job and tonight is my last night. The big day, the finals, is here, and it's Spain Vs. Germany. The whole tournament boils down to this. Germany's chance for a fourth European Championship victory and Spain's first ever appearance in a European Championship final.

So after tonight I will have some more time on my hands and hopefully will blog some more. My laptop is at a service center so this is being typed from the family desktop. Not an ideal pc in a not-so-ideal location.



Anywhoo, my first ever movie review.


Now I don't watch hindi movies. At all. However my family does, so the other day when my brother asked me to rent out, 'Tashan,' (Attitude) I did and thought, 'meh why not just watch it with family.'

For the next 3 hours I was repeatedly reminded as to WHY I do not watch hindi movies.

Ridiculous plot lines, ridiculous acting, ridiculous costumes, ridiculous screenplay and a ridiculous ending.

Akshay Kumar was a leaping-from-rooftops character shooting the baddies without even looking and killing hundreds, while none of the million of baddies with guns could hit him. Apparently Indian henchmen are really bad shots. Even in the millions. And right after he DOES slaughter the horde of baddies, Saif Ali Khan says to him, "You can't kill me. You're not a killer."

wtf

Saif Ali Khan, I used to reckon as a class actor. Not anymore.

Kareena Kapoor was a train wreck.

The ONLY decent actor in the movie was Anil Kumar who kept up the Bihari persona very well. Other than that he blowed.

To all of them:

How on earth did you possibly accept to do such a movie. Jet Skis appearing from nowhere, people driving open top flaming cars THROUGH an explosion without so much as a scar. The same car was earlier SURROUNED (360 degree circle) by baddies emptying cartridges into it. Not one of the passengers got shot.

Jeez, why MUST you make movies so darn unrealistic. Stupid Indian directors (not a generalization though, there are some BRILLIANT directors back home.) As for the director of this movie, a debutant Vijay Krishna Acharya: don't quite the day job please. Ever.

Don't watch most hindi movies. They blow.


T@biscuitinabastket:

You're up.

See ya soon!
