Two Movies: Funny Games & Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels

After a heavy desi lunch buffet at the Palace of Asia and then a Heineken, we’re in no mood to plug away at the keyboard.

So, we’re gonna read the latest issue of the New Yorker for a few minutes, take a siesta for a few hours and then watch two Hollywood movies back to back.

First, we’re going to watch the DVD of Funny Games (Naomi Watts and Tim Roth). SI reader ShikhariShambhu (yes, that pest) recommended Funny Games.

Then, we’re going to watch Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels via Netflix Instant Play.

Directed by Guy Ritchie (of Snatch and Mr.Madonna fame), the movie features Jason Flemyng and Dexter Fletcher in key roles. SI reader halfMonkHalfHitMan recommended Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

By the way, if you haven’t seen Snatch yet, boy you are missing something. One helluva movie.

We’ll update this post after we finish watching the two movies.

    So, how were the two movies?? did you enjoy them?? Responds:

    Funny Games is simply awesome. Will update the post sometime later today.

    Haven’t been able to watch the other Guy Ritchie movie yet. Been busy over the last 24-hrs putting out some unanticipated fires on our IT front plus the Spelling Bee 2009.

    Is the Spelling Bee a big thing where you live?

    I am highly offended. You may expect to hear from my high powered legal team soon.

    the people i watched it with didn’t like it. And we were the only ones in the theater.

    It had a limited release i think. Responds:

    Yes, it must have gone to DVD quickly.

    If you liked Funny Games, you may like
    I thought this one was better(better plot and acting), but for the ridiculous climax.

    This is a remake of a remake of foreign language Oscar winner
    .. hence the critics are harsh. I haven’t seen the first 2 so found this one to be intereting till the last 20 minutes. Responds:

    Last House on the Left looks very interesting. Will see the original.

    Funny Games was chilling. Menacing language and cold-blooded violence. We saw the 2008 version.
