Geeeeez …

What a boring weekend ?! But it is also a great weekend for movies, I suppose. In fact, 4 movies in a row … first the awarding winning movie – “Sideways”, then the “Dragon Seed” (made in year 1944 !!) and …

then the 11 years’ old “The Shawshank Redemption” (TSR) and lastly, “In Good Company”.

So the critics (hey, I am not a professional, you’re forewarned) … “Dragon Seed” is crap, “In Good Company” is not as good as what advertised. And for the “TSR” … it’s in my DVD shelf getting dust for ages and almost become a shelfware (since I am not a fan of prison movies), but indeed it is a very very good movie – excellent storytelling, Freeman is GREAT. And the best (big surprise) of all is … (drumroll) … the “Sideways”. Not sure why, I am not exactly a wine lover, but really learnt a lot from this movie …

Lesson Learnt: Want to kill some time ? Switch on your DVD player.
