Movie Picks - October

Not many movies this month. TheBetterHalf got introduced to the magic land of TV series recently. So movies had to take a back seat for some time.

1. Gravity

Movie: Gravity(2013)
Genre: Fantasy,  SciFi, Drama, Thriller
Starring: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney 
Suggested by: Trailers everywhere.
The sunshine: Visually stunning. Watching it in 3D was pretty darn breathtaking. Kudos to the graphic designers! Sandra Bullock was a treat to the eyes too ; toned and just wonderful
The downpour: Sandra Bullock's hair :/ and a whole lot of the movie. If you think about it, there was not much of acting going on. The ending was lightyears away from being remotely realistic.

2. Captain Phillips

Movie: Captain Phillips(2013)
Genre: Thriller, Drama, Biographical
Starring: Tom Hanks, Barkhad Abdi, Max Martini
Suggested by: The trailers
The sunshine: This has got to be one of the best movies to be out, this year. Everything about his movie was top notch and I thought this movie is going to be boring. Boy, was I wrong! Both Tom Hanks and Barkhad Abdi performed very realistically. I thought both of them were neck and neck in their acting. Even though Barkahd is the pirate and the antagonist, the movie shows us their angle too, evoking a sort of empathy for them. All I have to say is You have to see the movie to know how unbelievably good it is. The last twenty minutes is when Tom Hanks just blew my mind. That man knows how to act and I don't say it lightly. It would be an understatement to say the movie is tension filled. 
The downpour:Nothing. Every minute counted.


  1. Ah! I want to watch both - had heard that Captain Phillips was amazing, so looking forward!


Make me a happy bunny, would ya? :D
