Trouble with the Curve (2012) Dir: Robert Lorenz Cast: Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, Justin Timberlake Decent, checked off the list for Clint. Didn’t meet the expectations and didn’t realize it wasn’t Clint’s direction till, I saw the credits roll. Can be passed off.
Lincoln (2012) Dir: Steven Spielberg Cast: Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones Thirteenth Amendment – all the details – how it happened, what happened behind the scene. “A compass will point you true north. but it won’t show you the swamps between you and there. If you don’t avoid the swamps, and get bogged down, what’s the use of knowing true north?”
Django Unchained (2012) Dir: Quentin Tarantino Cast: Jamie Fox, Samuel L Jackson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz
Kick – ass. Period.
Death proof (2007) Dir: Quentin Tarantino Cast: Kurt Russell, Rosario Dawson I waited to watch this movie, a little longer than required. I had in fact rented Death proof 2-3 years back, but didn’t seem to get a Quentin feel, to it. Hence, left it unfinished. Recently, Death proof came up in discussions recently, and I was like what did I miss…Well, I did miss, quite a bit!! 2 weeks back I saw the movie and figured out what an idiot I was. For all the Quentin fans, watch this, in case you are one like me waiting for the recommendation.

The Boxer (1987) Cast: Daniel Day Lewis, Emily Watson I did find some strains of similarity between The Boxer and In the Name of the Father, primarily the troubled times in Ireland. Daniel Day gives another spectacular performance along with Emily. Do not expect it to give you anything like Rocky, this is film is on a different level.
