Movie Review - Matrix

Finally watched Matrix Revolutions and well I must say that they have done a good job but hmmm I must go and see it again. The movie as a whole will give you what you are going for but maybe the concept was no longer new to the crowd so the enthuisiasm was on the low side. The graphics are nothing major in the beginning ... i was expecting more of fight scenes between Neo and his counterpart .. was disappointed when it occured.. the scene was marred by the rain which they thought would enhance the scene.... but finally the scene of the battle between the machine and Xion was awesome ... here the focus was on all characters rather than on Neo. Sometimes the scenes tended to be confusing but hey i did not care as long as there was some action and what an action.... The ending was unexpected and the invasion of the machines was a well done shot... One really wonders what one would do if one were ruled by scores of machines.. I did not understand the end... and well it left me behind with a taste of bewilderment but then hey i guess who is noticing, i just have to go and see it again. If you guys are up for action and do not mind too much explanation... i think this is the movie for you!!! Otherwise the weekend was full of completing a book in french, a crazy book i had to read which i need to present afterwards... the french are always a little different from the rest.. and it is reflected in their movies and their literature. The book was about a guy who opened his umbrella when it was sunny and closed it when it was raining. And how it affected the society.. and how you should live and let live... ( that was my conclusion) but otherwise i was like .. go figure !!! Hmmm !! I guess i have to start thinking way way out of the box to be able to understand the french !! Work wise there is lot of hectic activities going on since I have tendered my resignation and well though I am leaving my present org, it kinda seems sad... but then hey ... getting too comfortable with one's present job too is a dangerous thing... so i guess I am looking forward to new paths and new challenges. Next on my list is to go shopping............ Yipeeeeeeeeeeee !!! Love shopping when i have the dough to spend it....he he :)

Finally I think, finally i have got a new job and i am pretty happy i guess. I am morer happy about the fact that I can go home and meet my parents if i strategically plan by leave before joining the new organisation. YIP YIP YIP .. thats me jumping like a happy puppy not because i got a job but because i can finally go home and see my folks... its been a year since i saw them and its been three years since i visited my native so there...... i am overjoyed... By the way the guy who talked too long has shifted so i am thrilled ... perseverance pays i guess... The job, well .... not paying me exactly what i wanted but finally i got through and well its ok now... Hmmm one thing which is very common in all the companies i have seen specially big companies.... they do all talk big and even though they know that they are dealing with a person well versed with the company jargon and policies they still try and go about running around the bush dancing like a red indian... and the funnypart is that as much as i was going the straighforward way the other party was running bigger circles around the bush... guess i must also learn this dance .... Like in french they say patati patata... you blah blah, i patati patata .... silly of me to expect anything different but hey it does not harm to hold on to one's values !! AT THE END OF IT ALL I am a going home............. country roads take me home to the place i belong , Oh my shillong, yes my shillong, mountain roads take me home.......... the original song always reminds me of my Shillong... SIGHHHHHHHHH !!

OK before anyone says it again I have come to know that the google thing was a joke and i got suckered. Anyway what else is new ? I have always been easy to get at. The other day in Mocvenpick, i was approached by a magician and well i was so engrossed in proving it to him that all it was was a sleight of hand ... that i did not see his trick coming... and was totally taken in... Moral of the terminal story... be more alert !! I wish !! Anyway today one of my classmates in French was telling a story about how she spend two years in making a doll house and collecting all things possible for the house in the miniature form. Its a passion for her and well I thought that it was amazing . Frankly speaking, my concentration can stay at one place at one time not more than 2 mins and what patience to have created one... Hmm I would rather stick to banging my keyboards and rambling on about this and that he he !! But Kudos to that lady !! i must say !! And what do you do when your baymate takes up the phone that you share and speaks in a language almost foreign ( Tamil, which I know a little) loudly for 45 minutes... I think i am going to go and bang my head into something to get sane... the language is not the issue, the time is the issue... he is getting married and i understand that he wants to get lovey dovey but hey use the cell $#@$#@$... GRRR I feel like i am going to blow... ok now i am playing my mini radio loudly so that he can get the message... no no its not working.... ok now I have called someone at my desk and started my own dialouge to break his concentration.... Ah ha its working... HMMMMMMMMMM a simple solution to a simple problem... he he !! fight talk with talk !! I am victorious !!! YIPEEEEEEEEEEE
