Idle Indian minds will drink.

Idle Indian minds will drink anything cold if the weather is as hot as it was in the mid-Atlantic states of the U.S. today.

So, as we were returning from the new Hollywood movie The Lincoln Lawyer, we made a quick stop at the Gujju liquor store and picked up two fairly commonplace beers – the Australian Foster’s and the Dutch Heineken – to see which one would cause us the least offense.

Usually, after we get back from the liquor store we keep the beer in the freezer for just a few minutes to get it really ice-cold.

First, we opened Foster’s ($2.25 for the 25.4-oz can).

We kept drinking Foster’s, all the while reviewing The Lincoln Lawyer.

Who says we can’t chew gum drink Beer and write at the same time. ;)

After we’d finished the Foster’s and after completing the review of The Lincoln Lawyer and after listening to the maestro Ennio Morricone, we turned to Heineken.

Our Verdict
Heineken
($2.75 for a 24-oz can) has a better taste, seemed slightly bitterer and packed a overall less cheap flavor.

But it had a slightly, oh, just so slightly chemical odor.

With Foster’s, we drifted across a range  of emotions ranging from decent to not great to tasteless. It was not bad like many other cheap bilge we’ve drunk. Just that it did not seem to have a well defined taste of anything.

Neither of the beer is a strong beer like for instance Arrogant Bastard.

Now, if you schmucks will just disappear, we’d like to listen to Ennio Morricone’s hauntingly beautiful, timeless music from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, For a Few Dollars More and Il Trio Infernale one more time.

And one more time.

And one more time. ;)

Ennio Morricone, we’re blessed to have been born in your lifetime!

Yipitee!. ;)

We’re in a good mood, folks.

Thank God, the cold weather is behind us. Thank God for the Cricket World Cup, for there are none of those not-meant-for-humans Bollywood or Kollywood movies. Thank God for Bacchus, we have a huge 25-oz open can of beer in front of us. And Thank God for…., we have a plate of heavenly Sambar-Rice in front of us.

Ah, Life is good, schmucks. ;)

And yes, we just returned after watching a nice Hollywood movie The Lincoln Lawyer.

Brad Furman directed the movie based on the book by Michael Connelly.

Starring Matthew McConaughey and the reasonably pretty Marisa Tomei (included just to have a pretty face), Lincoln Lawyer is a crime-legal thriller that makes for an engrossing 1 hour and 51 minutes.

We can’t remember the last time we saw a Matthew McConaughey movie. Must have been a gazillion years ago.

Hey, the guy is not bad. Not bad at all. Not one of those Hollywood zombies. We suppose he’s in the Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Ben Affleck league.

Back to the movie, we see Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey), a sharp, quick-witted L.A. criminal defense attorney moving around town in his Lincoln sedan from one destination to another (now, you know where the movie title comes from) chauffeured by a black driver.

Not too long after the movie starts our young, handsome lawyer lands a case, a very interesting case – a rich young man Louis Roulet (Ryan Phillippe) is charged with rape and brutal assault of a prostitute.

The rich young man (played convincingly and with restraint by Ryan Phillippe)  swears he had nothing to do with the rape or violent attack on the hooker, that it was all a set up and begs our lawyer Mickey to help him.

For a big pile of cash, Mickey accepts the case.

Well, where you have Big Money, Big Trouble is never far behind! Take our word on that, guys. Continue reading »
