"Joblessness" - The VACATION Effect

Yeah, nothing to do. Still waiting for the prof to review my work before going ahead.
In the meanwhile, I am doing almost everything I should do in holidays. The good news is that the weather has improved, but then now there are insects and frogs all around :

Have watched almost 6-7 movies in the past week.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith: Funny, but I felt the plot was too crappy. A good vacation watch though.
Requiem For A Dream: A movie on why not to do drugs. Very highly rated movie but personally, I didn't enjoy it a lot. It wasn't exactly meant for the Indian audiences. But the movie had raw power in it. Lotsa gutsy scenes.
The Hot Chick: OK comedy. Could have been better but will do. Rachel McAdams, man she's beautiful !!
Haasil: A friend of mine couldn't stop praising the movie so I thought I'll give it a try. Nice movie, but not as good as he was claiming. Couldn't identify with the violent characters but the villain was the one who carries the entire movie on his shoulders. Brilliant performance by this guy.
The Girl Next Door: Again, OK movie. Seen quite a few like it, so wasn't a new experience. It was all mixed up actually. Decent though.
In America: The best of the lot by a huge margin. Classy script, brilliant characters and brilliant performances. The kids in the movie just act so very brilliantly. The movie was more like the struggle of a family against emotional odds, but it was just splendid. A must watch, though with the right frame of mind. This ain't an entertainer. More of a drama-reality.
One Fine Day: Naah, not worth it. Cliche plot, cliche acting. All seen, nothing new, except the kiddo's acting. Awesome kid, real fun guy. Clooney was his usual self, but couldn't pull it off. This was one romantic movie I would rather have missed, but then, OK. Anyway I am jobless :-p

Gonna read The Prodigal Daughter soon. Just got it from the book club here.
Went to Domino's the other day and realized there is so much beauty in this world :)) I am still talking about food :-p (Don't remember the movie in which the dialogue was there).
No cricket for some days now :( The weather and crowds ain't allowing it.
Lots more going on, but I rather end now.

No man, cudn't relate to the movie. Never done drugs u know :)
other than the end, the entire movie seemed crap. I will say this: it was made with a different style. I'll give that ti the movie and surely was hard-hitting and had a MAJOR end. But apart from that, it didn't impress me.
