Terminal Gump!

Tom hanks does it again!

Well no denying he a great actor and yup Terminal may have seats occupied for a while( thanks largely to Hanky dear)...but er..correct me if am wrong...dont you guys think the forest gump hangover is lasting a bit toooo long on hunky hanky??!

I love that guy..really do...but just that..there is soooo much more variation potential in him that it almost pains to see yet another version of gump!:-(

Well to begin with terminal did get me laughing and quite a lot--had its great moments!...like the trick about earning money by arranging strolleys in the terminal!(wow!!...thats the kinda job one would kill for...simple and sweet!), hanky dear trying to figure out the camera!(brilliant performance!), hanky making a bed for himself at the terminal with the seats and taking a bath at the terminal wash basin.....almost wished I had come to theatre with a "I love u hanky" placard!:-)

But...keeping hanky aside for awhile --trying to figure out what was the movie all about???? and well...er...moreso coz its by Mr Spielberg!....well the director guess got sooo enamoured by hanky that focussed only on him and hoped everything else would just fit in...on its own!...

Well Mr Spielberg...err..sorry to say..it didnt...every other character..seemed to be there to justify hanky dear's character...and Miss catherine Zeta jones...well atleast u looked gorgeous...will let the rest of ur existence in the movie pass...All of hanky's friends and the field commissioner who me thinks were trying to figure out through the movie why the hell did he take this role?!;-)

Phew!...now that I have said enugh "not so good things" abt the movie I cld think of..me recommends u see the movie once..its a good laugh...and yes for hunky hanky's sake...just to relive the gump!

Ms Know-it-all... If anything at all, then this movie deserves a comparison with CASTAWAY and not GUMP :-P When i look at Artifical Intelligence, i think Terminal rocks.. and Spielburg is a master at making entertaining escapist fare....u dont need to see beyond CATCH ME IF YOU CAN and the INDIANA JONES SERIES....I had a ball seeing this movie and if only u'd left ur brains, assuming u have one :-p, u'd enjoyed it much much more...

Hows that for all the mean things u said over fone today :-p

hey kiddo!
Well if I remember right castaway was after forest gump! and very much yet another version of the gump acting phenomena!!..which is exactly why I said this movie is probably the third with a similar performance feeler as gump!

And yes I did leave my brains behind and which is precisly why I said I did enjoy it( if only peabrains like you would have read the blog more carefully before jumping to comment:-)

p.s- Hows that for a mean one right in the morning!:-))

Grumpy goblins have invaded this space. Watch out.

Forget "Terminal", did you guys watch "I, Robot" and "The Village". Both totally rocked, and I cant recomment them enough.
