The book movie

I have this little fat book sitting on my shelf with a pen inside dutifully playing its role as the bookmark that I havent touched for some time now. Today morning, groggy just after waking up, my eyes landed on the book and for a second, the fold of the book on the pen made it look like the book was eyeing me, with an severe, accusatory look, as if mad at me for not looking into it. Anyway, I was thinking, how would it be if we had a cartoon movie made with books as characters. Personifying a book shouldnt be difficult, every book is in essence different from the other. As for the plot, it shouldnt be difficult too, books as such are facing extinction, an apocalyptic theme should be easy. We can also fit in romance, the hero can be a paperback, the heroine a hardcover, daughter of a best seller… and so on.

Alonso: Stop being pathetic

With United losing their talisman, Arsenal cash strapped, and Chelsea not making much progress, I had a feeling that this might Liverpool's year after all. But then comes the blow. Both Alonso and Masch want to leave Anfield and go to Spain.

Now this is pathetic. Alonso was a nobody last season. He was such a mediocre player and Rafa was right in wanting to offload him to Juve and get Barry in. He has one good season and just because Real come calling, he is all of a sudden a great player and wants to leave. Show some loyalty asshole. Even a prick like Ronaldo waited for a season more, did his job for United and then left for Real.

And then Masch. Yes, he is a good defensive midfielder. It may be a bit unfair to say that without Rafa, he would be rotting in West Ham as a squad player. It will be great if he stays, but if he doesnt, then we have big problems.

Emmtan Magan is crap

Its probably too late to write a review for Emmtan Magan, but I had to. I watched two scenes and I had enough. Consider this, the hero elopes with his cousin, which in itself is gross enough, goes to a new city and what's waiting there? twenty people with everything but a band and kovil elephant, promising not just a house and a job but also a wedding, coz tamil sentiment doesnt allow living together. Ofcourse, in just one song/5 minutes, he fornicates with his cousin, vivifies a kid, becomes the next Bill Gates in animal husbandry, rakes in the big bucks, drives a Honda Civic.. you get it. And then consider this, Naasar comes to a poultry farm to meet his son and there he is, wearing a maroon silky shirt, neatly pressed trousers and a tie. tie, that's right, a tie, in a poultry farm, surrounded by chickens. Oh the incongruity. I hate to say it, but this movie epitomizes bad cinema and I will be poking my eyes just for watching the scenes and not blasting the tv.
