Here are some of what I consider as the most memorable movie scenes of 2007 in no particular order:

The bath house fight in “Eastern Promises”: Some may complain that there is too much gratuitous violence here (Was it really necessary to bloodily poke someone’s eye at the end? ) but all agree that this is one heck of a scene (prison tattoos /male nudity and all).

Frank Lucas taking care of business while his brothers watch from the restaurant in “American Gangster”.

Kuala Lumpur Travel Guide Part 2

I started posting about Kuala Lumpur travel tips few weeks ago. I’ve been now in Kuala Lumpur for few weeks and have settled in quite nicely. As my stay is quite long, I decided I needed more than what a hotel can offer and ended up calling my KL home an excutive suite in one of the many brand new highrises within a very short walking distance from the extravagant KLCC. I believe renting a modern furnished apartment is without doubt the way to go whenever one’s stay exceeds one week in a cosmopolitan city. I am extremely pleased with my new place and appreciate the pleasure of settling down for a while after having been on the road for so long. I have great amount of comfort and all the amenities I would enjoy in Vancouver or Toronto including high speed internet, cable TV, large LCD screen, and the luxury of having all I need within a short walking distance.

Best Movie Performances of 2007

Posted on March 3rd, 2008 filed in Movie Talk

Among the myriad of movies that marked 2007, a number of performances stand out as simply unforgettable. Every year has it share of great performances but 2007 has many that will actually mark movie history and are easily among the best movie performances ever, which in the recent past would include Phyllis Seymor Hoffman’s Capote and Jamie Foxx’s Ray.

Marillon Cotillard as Edith Piaf in “La Vie En Rose”: Marion Cotillard literally becomes Edith Piaf and renders a flawless performance that reincarnates the great french singer almost half a century after her death. We see Edith with her diminutive posture, her flaws and vice, her love and passion, her ups and downs, and her emotionally charged fading self. We observe Cotillad merge into a near crippled Piaf with her back hunched and barely able to walk and then marvel at her perfectly synching of Piaf’s performance at the Paris Olympia. We hear every cry of help, see every look of despair, and understand what Edith was going through various parts of her life.
