Cause The Place Feels Still Alive

When The Smoke Is Going Down by Scorpions

Back in 1987-88 I & my sister spent a lot of evenings in Kacheripady in my mom’s eldest brother’s house. I would also spend some summer days at their house along with some of my other cousins. My eldest cousin brother Satish had some amazing rock band music collection. Mostly greatest hits & compilations of many of the bands like the Beatles, CCR, Neil Young and the Scorpions. I became a huge fan of the scorpions when I was 12 years old and to this day I love this band.

The Hangover

From the time that the movie came out, The Hangover has been claimed to be a great film, a great comedy and one of the most funniest films of the decade. Most people I knew who watched it raved about it. It was all over the internet. I even know of a few people here who don’t watch many English language/Hollywood movies at all – and even they loved it a lot. I dunno why I never got round to seeing it till this afternoon but I can’t understand what all the fuss was about. I didn’t find it to be that great!

Ok I didn’t say it wasn’t a good film or that it isn’t funny. It is funny but not that funny. Maybe I built it to be so much based on the hype but I wasn’t that impressed with the film. I have seen a lot better. It’s a good film and I would recommend that you watch it but ….. you get the idea! Here are some points on the movie:

  • Guys on a drinking trip, in Las Vegas, things going wrong – its a formula that will always work. Nothing like a guy bonding film to attract the young crowd.
  • Las Vegas is the ultimate party town – if you have the money. And if you want to get married!
  • The Mike Tyson cameo was a great idea and it worked.
  • Heather Graham looks lovely in her small role. I have missed watching her in movies.
  • I don’t like Zack Galifianakis – he just puts me off. But I can’t believe that he is ‘Davis’ from tv’s Tru Calling! I liked that show a lot and it seems like such a long time ago that I had seen it. He was better in that series.
  • The tiger in the bathroom angle seems to be a concept borrowed from Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle.
  • The movie makes good use of the music.
  • I think Ed Helms as “Stu” was the best thing about the movie.
  • Who is this hottie Alexandra ‘Sasha’ Baresse? Growl!
  • I really liked the photo slide show thingy at the end of the movie, which shows exactly what the 4 guys did on the night!

Overall I’d give the movie a 7 outta 10! I don’t see myself watching this movie many times over the years.
