More of great recommendations Yay!
Thanks Gw, Socks, someone named Anonymous, David, Johnny and Ahavati. I will definitely check back in this thread when I'm looking for something good to watch this week.
I did watch "47 meters down Uncaged" on AmazonPrime and enjoyed it very much. I think this second movie had better special effects..the thrill, the suspense just kept going. It was awesome but I did favor the first movie just a tad more only because it had that twist in the end and I"m a sucker when it comes to twists.
Then I watched "Rocketman" on Amazonprime and loved it. It's about Elton john's life, it had few instances where the characters broke into musicals..which was a bit odd and I didn't particularly care for it cause that musical aspect didn't really amount to anything special. I think Elton John must've had a big influence in it since he loves musicals and had to insert some in the movie. The lead actor did a terrific job portraying him, hell he even looked exactly like him, the little boy playing him was so adorable. Overall great movie..but if i had to compare it to Behemian Rhapsody, Bohemian Rhapsody i liked more.
Now...drum roll for a fanstastic discovery and I don't say it lightly when I say.."Drop everything and go to Amazonprime to watch this movie"
An Indian movie called "Photograph" in Hindu and subtitles of 80% and 20% spoken in english. Gorgeous, understated love story between strangers, class distinction (lighter skin, darker skin) and how life intersects lives accidentely, haphazardly, cosmically..There's no sex, no kissing but just one scene where there hands touch but everything else is slowly built, the characters are so well written as the story unfolds and we have no idea where it's going or how it will end. The star in my opinion is the grandmother dadi, who is a little firecracker lol, i loved her to pieces. Watching the scenes shot in India, The streets, the building, the culture, the food, the aroma..down to the street venders cooking on the streets then wrapping the food in newspaper, the nostalgia of food or drinks tied to memory and how we see ourselves in photographs. One of the most beautiful lines i heard in the movie, the main actress describing seeing herself in a photograph, she said, " I didn't recognize myself...I looked happy."
Wow, what a line! A must watch movie, I highly recommend it.
