Within these 2weeks, i have been catchin up with a lot of movies lately..
Gues everyone shld hav watched this movie.. what strikes in my mind after watchin the movie is that, how scary and DARK was the world before then, how pple kill one another to survive in the cruel cold world.. and how pple hav to struggle to survive..
and of cos i was really appalled to how can he think that he is doing good for his community by selling the pple drugs that are so pure.. i am definitely in the stand of russell crowe character.

based on the Old English epic poem of the same name. Set in a magical era, with groundbreaking visual effects, it chronicles the exploits of Beowulf (Ray Winstone), a Scandinavian hero who sets out to save the Danes from the monster Grendel (Crispin Glover), on behalf of King Hrothgar. Though at first Grendel seems invincible, Beowulf eventually manages to defeat him in a desperate battle to the death. In return for this act he gains great fame, wealth and power and succeeds the throne. However, Grendel?s ruthlessly seductive mother (Angelina Jolie), devastated by her son's violent demise at the hands of Beowulf, sets out in search of revenge.
The film follows the mysterious and ruthless Nikolai (Viggo Mortensen), who is tied to one of London's most notorious organized crime families. His carefully maintained existence is jarred when he crosses paths with Anna (Naomi Watts), an innocent midwife trying to right a wrong, who accidentally uncovers potential evidence against the family. Now Nikolai must put into motion a harrowing chain of murder, deceit, and retribution.
Another movie abt Russian Mafia.. its interesting to listen to the russian accents.. was having slight difficulties in the beginning of the movie listening to the conversation but all went well after gettin used to the accent. ;)
This is a really beautiful movie, a love story between 2 different young talented musicians falling in love, but were being apart. Their child who was being separated since birth, wanting so much and believing so much of searching for his parents. Although it became predictable towards the ending, but still, i love this movie, because it does have a very touching good story line abt it. Not any movie about war, hate, bad things in the world.. juz one show about LOVE. & the truth about music.. music is also an international language, it connects pple frm all over the world.. it tells stories..
based on a true story and the bestselling book by Jon Krakauer. After graduating from Emory University in 1992, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that help shape his life.
I was having lots of mixed feelings watching this show.. that is something i had thought of doing it before, when i was young.. but to tink back again.. wel, i hav done something like tat too, but in a safer way, safer in the sense that i do not endanger my life in any way.. by leaving singapore, coming to dublin without knowing anyone, with not much money in my pocket or in my bank.. lol
