Adorable movies i watched in 2012

Me, after coming to United States drastically created myself a special interest in different genre of movies. One of which  is the ‘Drama’. I adored watching action movies but the opportunity i got to watch different movies made me re-think that do i like Drama more than action movies? Thanks for Bloomington Library and my job for giving me enough time for watching movies.Well, here are few movies where i started to enorm Drama and Musicals than action movies.

First and foremost, I would go with a classic Musical – Singin’ in the Rain – A Masterpiece. What a glorious feeling. Yes, truly I had a glorious feeling watching this all-time classic. With every single song and each individual scene in the film so indelibly ingrained – watching it with sheer awesomeness. The tap dancing episodes so affectionately embraced the celluloid, you could not take your eyes off the episode.
The movie is about the times of transition from silent movies to talkies. The kind of subtle humor in the film is unique, of its own kind. Remember that the movie was made way back in 1952 and at that time, a master with such imagination would make this movie and the director (who was also the protagonist in this movie) was fantastic in it! This movie is listed in AFI’s 100 years of Musicals and still stands 5th in the best movies ever made list by AFI. I liked the movie so much because –  it was my first movie in this genre and it showed me how a musical can pull you into the movie and you get so involved in it. And yeah for first time watchers like me, it would be a totally new feeling and you will love it..!
I, as an amateur writer constantly struggled to find words to describe how great the experience was, as some glorious moments can only be felt and cannot be described.
I would thank my colleague Chris, an avid classic movie follower, for inviting me to watch this movie and watching it on Blue-ray – was a DELIGHT.

Next in the line is one of the best ever made Drama movie – its the Product of Clint Eastwood, and gosh how does his brain work to make such movies. Its Gran Torino. After watching this i followed his movies Changeling, Million Dollar Baby, Invictus. A truly original approach, seminal unconventional and underivative. Well, yet to watch more of his movies.
ImageUntill I watched this movie – I only heard of him, I just know he is a great actor, his voice such commanding, was the life for any character he portrayed. Yes, I am talking about Clint Eastwood. I never saw any of his movies but this one took me by surprise as how any actor even at the age of 78 could not only direct a movie, but also act and fight. I cursed my ignorance about not watching his movies before, this movie made me search his filmography and now i am planning to watch few of his movies. Also, to my surprise, realised that Million Dollar Baby is his product.
And coming back to the movie – the movie is about a veteran who saves his neighborhood, a Hmong family from criminals in crime – ridden city. And the most important thing in this movie and one should appreciate and love is its Originality. It’s so simple that while watching the movie you will get a feeling that it’s happening right in front of you and you are seeing these in your daily life. How many movies will give you a feeling like that?
My article above about this movie is kept simple with no excited words to describe it, because the movie just happens and you will not get a feeling that you watched a movie for 2 hrs. Watch it to know it!!!
More movies …….Yet to come………………………………………………
