Star Trek – Boldly Go, Indeed

J.J. Abrams has boldly gone where George Lucas has failed to go in over 20 years, and I am thankful. Finally, someone has taken an element of my childhood imagination and modernized it without adding superfluous fluff and fodder for the sake of action figure merchandising.

Patricia Highsmith and Tom Ripley in the Movies

Continuing my assessment of the work of Patricia Highsmith’s five Ripley novels, I review two recent movies, one with Matt Damon, “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and the other with George Malkovich, “Ripley’s Game.” Both of them were entertaining movies, but both took liberties with their source material, Highsmith’s novels. I also review the script of “Talented” by Anthony Minghella and show how he drastically altered the book’s content to fit his film concept.

Slumdog Millionaire – A Mumbai Two Crore Opera

When you watch Danny Boyle’s latest rags-to-riches fairy tale “Slumdog Millionaire,” you’ll experience an emotional roller-coaster ride that only Mumbai can offer. The city that never sleeps, the city that is in the center of the center of the world (as mentioned by Salim in the movie), a city that has an economic and social contrast ratio of 20,000,000:1, reveals itself on the screen as Danny Boyle and his screen writer Simon Beaufoy (based on the novel Q&A by Vikas Swarup) masterfully crafts the film using the television game show “Kaun Banega Crorepati?” or “Who wants to be a Millionaire?” as the spine of the story.

Dave Gorman – What a Genius!

I first saw Dave Gorman in 2001, when he presented a show on BBC2 called The Dave Gorman Collection. I found his approach to comedy refreshing, because he does this thing he calls “Documentary Comedy”. This is where you present real things that have happened to you, in a humorous manner.
