197- A Beautiful Mind (2001)

bingo !

bingo !

Russell Crowe does a good bit of acting in his portrayal of John Ross a mathematician who goes a bit nuts as he develops into a paranoid-schizophrenic. John thinks he’s working as a code breaker for the U.S.A. ,trying to crack the location of a Russian nuclear bomb on american soil.He isn’t. In fact he’s just cutting up newspapers and wrecking his wife’s head.He gets carted off to the mental for a bit,gets well then relapses.Pretty good film over-all.Keep a lookout for the the two nerd friends from Dazed and Confused playing two nerd friends in this too.Musical score is a bit heavy in parts,bringing in the strings when you need to be all weepy.

Monsters Inc is about the trials and tribulations of members of the band Mettalica.Well not really.It’s about a world where monsters exist and supply their world with power gathered from the screams of children.Their job would have been pretty easy is they just hung around catholic churches after hours.The monsters are themselves afraid of the kids and think they’ll be contaminated and die if a kid touches them.Half way through the film they discover that a kids laughter produces 10 times more energy.Original story,early CGI and i shows.Everything is smooth,no texture.

IMDB RATING      –     8

OVERALL     –  GOOD FOR VERY YOUNG KIDS.BOOS BABY SPEAK IS VERY ANNOYING.
