Melbourne - The Most Livable City in the World @Indiblogger Contest

Hi Guys,

Australia has everything which a country can offer to it's visitors as well as citizens. Melbourne is one of the major cities in this amazing country. As per the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) it's the most livable city in the world and has been in top 3 since 2002. There must be something that must be making this city Number 1 amongst various nations and top cities.
Melbourne is the major financial capital of Australia so it offers great career opportunities. The city has a huge CBD area which has all the companies flourishing day and night. 
Melbourne has everything that a metropolitan city is known for. It offers great fun, food, architecture, film movies theatre and recreational activities along with amazing night life as well as some great cultural heritage. The city has really some great eating joints and coffee places which makes this place amazing to get together.
The thing I love the most in this city is the world famous Melbourne Cricket Ground which has a history of itself and can have more than 100000 spectators in it's full capacity. This coming year Cricket World Cup will have several matches scheduled to happen in this amazing ground. India vs South Africa match is scheduled to happen in this ground on 22nd Feb 2015. The Final of 2015 Cricket World Cup will also happen in this amazing and great cricket ground. Who knows that India might again pick the trophy this year!!!
It's always great to go for a drive on the road touching the sea and Great Ocean Road gives you what Garden Route offers in South Africa. It is for those times when you feel really sad and wants to see sunset or sunrise as the drive always brings in a lot of hope. The time spent near the sea is always remembered by everyone. It gives you a calm and meditation effect. 
The city has numerous beaches for your morning and evening walks as well as for some romantic getaways. It's always great to sit on the sands and watch waves touch your feet while sun takes it's route. It's always a great time in this amazing city. I wish to see myself in the city soon and enjoy whatever best this Victorian city of Melbourne has to offer.

Movie Review - Foxcatcher (2015)

Hi Guys, 

Foxcatcher (2014) is an American biographical sports drama film directed by Bennett Miller. The movie stars Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo, Steve Carell, Vanessa Redgrave, Sienna Miller.

The movie is about the relationship between Olympic Wrestling Champion Mark Schultz and his brother Dave Schultz and how their relationship is impacted by the millionaire John du Pont. The movie belongs to Steve Carell who plays John du Pont and I could not even recognize him till the end and it's a definite Oscar winning role. Steve has brought a lot of reality into the role to play a paranoid-schizophrenic millionaire who is trying to win his mother's approval that he can handle things. It's a sad life he lives amongst all the wealth he has.

The movie is slow and serious and shows what goes into becoming a Wrestling Champion. Dave is played by Mark Ruffalo and like his all roles, he has played it extremely well. He is the main soul of the movie who keeps it together. 

Channing Tatum has gone through a lot of hard work to play Mark and learn the tips and tricks to play a Wrestling Champion. He has also changed his style of speaking and accent to match any wrestling athlete. His role will be remembered and he really brought Mark to life with his acting.

The movie will be loved by those who really like games and what goes into making a champion. The movie has the potential to reach Oscars Awards this year. Go and watch the movie for the sheer potential of acting.
Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor on 2nd Jan 2015. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook.

Movie Review - Tracers (2014)

Hi Guys, 


Tracers (2014) is an action thriller movie directed by Daniel Benmayor. The movie stars Taylor Lautner, Marie Avgeropoulos, Adam Rayner, Sam Medina, Josh Yadon. 
The movie has a lot of running sequences and is made by someone who really loved shooting Parkour. It looked like more of those Nikon and Canon's action photography video's they make whenever they launch new DSLR's. My sense of orientation got totally lost in the running effects that the director was able to create to introduce the characters of the movie. 

The movie has a nice story about a gang of people trained in Parkour to steal important stuff. Taylor Lautner makes a move from a bike messanger boy to being traceur after burdened by a huge loan from a Chinese dealer. Initially he is attracted to the art of Parkour but then changes it's heart once he identifies what the gang has been using it for. 

The actions sequences are really nice and keeps you on the edge and are also without a lot of guns shots etc. The movie will catch the attention of all the young crowd who are already in love with his sport and any action sports whatsoever. 


Movie is releasing in Ster Kinekor on 26th Dec 2014. Book your tickets now. More info on twitter and facebook.

Movie Review - The Longest Week (2014)

Hi Guys, 



The Longest Week (2014) is a situation comedy drama movie directed by Peter Glanz and it's the first Yash Raj Films venture into Hollywood as the movie is produced by Uday Chopra and Neda Armian. 

The movie starts Olivia Wilde, Jason Bateman, Billy Crudup in the lead roles. Olivia Wilde looks beautiful in this movie. The movie is a story about a rich boy as his inheritance of a hotel is divided among his fighting to-be-divorced parents and he is thrown out of the hotel for a week. He then stays with one of his friends and falls in love with the girl who his friend also loves. It's his fight to survive amongst all odds and still live the luxurious lifestyle he is used to makes the context of the story. The conversations between the Jason and Billy characters are funny and only part that keeps you engaged to this movie. 


The movie has nothing great to offer unless you want to see some of the good cinematography. The acting part is nice but the story is old. The movie is very slow and requires a lot of patience to keep watching it. You can wait for it to be played on TV or can totally avoid the same also. 


Movie got released on Ster Kinekor on 28th Nov 2014. More info on twitter and facebook.

The movie has it's ups & downs and coming to age is also shown by the fact the painting were slowly replaced by the invention of Cameras. Timothy has really lived the character and it might be his Oscar winning performance this year.

Hi Guys, 

Leading Lady (2014) is a South African drama romantic comedy movie set in beautiful South Africa.The movie is directed by Henk Pretorius and stars Bok Van Blerk and Katie McGrath in the lead roles.
Katie McGrath is playing the role of teacher who comes to South Africa from London to prepare herself for the role of Afrikaans war heroine. Katie is known for her role of Morgana in "Merlin" TV series. She looked beautiful in this movie set in the beautiful South African landscape. 

Bok Van Blerk has acted as a farmer thinking about selling his lands as he is under a lot of debt. As he fights his dilemma there is a different preparation going on for the annual concert at his farm. As they induct people into the concert, some of the funny scenes are created. The movie is a light hearted romantic drama as both of them continues to discover the cultural differences between the individuals.  

Brumilda Van Rensburg has really created a marvel and brings a lot of laughter with her character. One dialogue I especially remember is that "In this part of South Africa, even Chicken is vegetarian" when serving food to Katie's character as she visits them and tells them she is vegetarian. Gil Bellows has acted very well in his role. Check out for his character as it brings a lot of drama & laughter to the whole story.

Overall, Leading Lady (2014) has something to keep you to your seats as story develops and cinematography is especially great. Check out the movie for it's local taste as it's not always we get to see movies featuring South Africa in detail.

When Viggo's son Losef played by Alfie Allen from the GAME OF THRONES fame kills John Wick's dog gifted by his dying wife, their relationships turmoils. John wants to kill Losef while Viggo tries to save his son. This sets the context of the movie and whatever happens is run and chase story with a lot of fighting sequences that will keep you glued to your seats. 

The movie also stars Williem Dafoe, Dean Winters, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane and John Leguizamo amongst various others. The movie has a nice thrill attached to it as new elements are introduced in the movie. How John Wick overcomes each and every one of them is what keeps viewers hooked to the movie. 

The movie has a lot of close combat scenes and a lot of gun shoots sequences. The movie is really a must watch for all the fans of action and Keanu Reeves. The story has nothing to offer but this movie will be known for it's amazing action effects.

Movie Review - Instructions Not Included (2014)

Hi Guys, 

Some movies brings tears to your eyes and makes you think about your loved ones. They makes you grateful that you still have them in your life and then you cherish your moments of togetherness. This is one of those movies and I don't remember any other movie in recent past that have brought tears in my eyes since Life is Beautiful & Schindler's List. No instructions included (2014) is a journey of a person from being a carefree Casanova to taking full responsibility as a dad. The life gave him no choice as he falls into it, the movie shows the journey he travels through being a single dad.
Instructions Not Included (2014) is a Mexican Comedy Drama movie acted and directed by Eugenio Derbez. He has acted very well as a learning father to a child girl played by Loreto Peralta. She is the soul of the movie. How their lives got intertwined and how they learn from each other makes the context of this movie. The movie has a mystery attached to it which is revealed only in the last scene of the movie. 

This movie is definitely worth a watch whenever it's coming on TV or this can be easily added in your personal DVD collection. I really loved watching the movie and felt that you should always be happy and build on your personal relationships all the time. Not only good relationships keeps you stress free but also makes you enjoy your life and gives a purpose to your whole existence.

Movie got released in Ster Kinekor on 17th Oct 2014 and is now available in DVD format. More info on twitter and facebook.
