Movies

Blood Diamond

I think this is one very well made movie about conflict diamonds. It actually shows the struggles of Africa, the civil wars, the greed which turns people into killing machines, the many million child soldiers in Africa and other issues. Leonardo DiCaprio, Djimon Hounsou and Jennifer Connelly (though in a limited capacity) deliver power packed performances. In the end, you leave the hall thinking that if you ever buy a diamond, you're going to make sure it isn't a conflict diamond.

Sort of a documentary (good amounts of information), but very well made. Keeps you on the edge of your seat and the ending is quite nice.

Night at the Museum

Another well made movie. Honestly, I wasn't too interested in going to see this one, but went for one reason - Ben Stiller and boy, I'm glad I did. It's a very well made story, nice comedy, overall a very good and enjoyable movie.

Kabul Express

More of a documentary of sorts. But then again, nicely made, good dialogues and scenes. Never a boring moment but had a predictable ending. Worth a watch for sure.

> the greed which turns people into animals

Don't you think it's unfair for the animals to be compared with such people?

Actually that just came out and yeah, I agree totally with you. Apologies to the Animal world for that!

Saw the trailer of Blood Diamond recently and it looks like a movie worth watching. The conflict diamonds connect to Die Another Day ;-)

Yup. Surely worth watching :) And yeah, I was thinking Die Another Day too!

it has a better connection than Die another day

I'm not too sure about the trailer. It sucks though that it released only in Hindi. I mean, that's retarded.
