Shutter Island – Movie Review

22 Feb 2010  4 Comments

Being Sunday morning i was able to sleep in, i woke up and flipped thru my iphone and was face to face with Flixster. I decided to check out which were the nearest movie theaters with any decent movies, and stumbled upon Shutter Island. Flixster gave it a 70% but i decided to try it out nevertheless. I used to hate Leonardo Dicaprio, but after such movies as The Aviator,  Catch me if You Can, Blood Diamond, Body of Lies and The Departed more recently, he has become one of the actors i am enjoying most in movies. So we went off to the movie theater but decided to eat as we were an hour early for the movie. We went to a Brazilian grill restaraunt which was right by the cinema, and it was awful. Its called Tucano’s grill, and it seemed like the meat was from actual Tucan’s, the bird that is. Anyway back to the movie.

The movie is around 2hrs and 18mins. The only way i can describe it is delusional, hallucinating and utterly genius. It drags you on for almost 2 hours thinking that you know whats going on, when the last 10 minutes it changes totally. Its not like a Sixth Sense kind of ending, but you have the feeling all the way through that something is not right, but its totally different than what you imagine. Of course there will be parts of the movie where you might think it is slow and too easy to guess, but only the ending does justice to the movie. Basically it is about a US marshall (Dicaprio), who is investigating an escaped murderess from a remote island (Shutter Island) which is a hospital for the criminally insane. Martin Scorsese again does not fail to amaze with this plot and ending. IMDB gave it an 8.5, and for their standards that is pretty high. Great movie, with lots of twists and turns and worth the watch.

Rating: ★★★★★★★★★☆ 

Worst Valentine’s Gift Ever – The Hug-E-Gram

When I first saw this I thought that is was just a joke. To my surprise, they actually do sell this thing.

The fact that this seriously exists and is being advertised is very sad.

Its also available in 3 colors for the low price of $29.99

Registrations are open for what might be the web’s best bittorrent tracker. They usually open registration for brief moment. I was downloading stuff from there and for some reason I was signed out, and from there noticed that the registrations are open.

So hurry up an head over there.

The Worlds Ugliest Website

It’s been a while since my last SPAJS post, and when I saw this I had to post about it. You’ll get eye strain just from looking at it for 10 seconds. And its a nightmare to navigate through.

What were they thinking?!

Nokia Ovi Maps

Nokia just announced today that most of Nokia owner can download the new map/nav application for free on their devices.

So that puts it on par with android devices. Except we don’t have good Google maps coverage here in the middle east. Hope Nokia’s offering is much better.
