                             Genre      :       Thriller, Mystery, Horror
                             Cast        :      Anthony Perkins, Janet Leigh and Vera Miles.

           'Psycho' is an Alfred Hitchcock movie.Now that sentence says almost everything about the movie.It simply means it is a sure shot entertaining thriller.
       'Psycho' tells the story of a woman who steals 40000$ from her employer and while running away she comes across a motel whose proprietor is a young guy who was too long under the nomination of his mother.Actually knowing this much of the story will never help you to guess the fully thrilling plot.So watch this awesome thriller to know more about the plot.
     'Psycho' is a milestone or landmark movie in the history of Hollywood cinema.In 2007, the American Film Institute ranked this movie as the #14 Greatest Movie of All Time.The movie's caption line "A boy's best friend is his mother" was voted as the #56 movie quote by the American Film Institute (out of 100).This movie ranked #1 on the AFI 100 Years... 100 Thrills film series.This was Hitchcock's last black and white feature film,filmed November 30 1959-March 1 1960.One of the main reasons Alfred Hitchcock shot the movie in black and white was he thought it would be too gory in color.The film only cost US$800,000 to make and has earned more than US$40 million.In short it's a must watch movie.I strongly recommend this thriller for all of you.

            Ponyo is a 2008 released Japanese animated fantasy movie.It is written and directed by Hayao Miyazaki of Studio Ghibli.It is his 10th film and each movie is like a masterpiece.
            The story is about a goldfish princess named Ponyo who befriends a five-year-old human boy, Sōsuke, and  she wants to become a human girl.I cant explain you more than this because i might be writing spoilers.Only thing i can say is if you love animation movies,you are gonna have an awesome time watching this animated adventure.
             Usually i don't like movies which has fantasy stories,i have seen only a few number of them.But this one struck me like a lightning.The work those animators did for this movie is unbelievably wonderful.The usual minus points you hear about Japanese animation movies are they have less details,more animation cycles etc.But this one has enormous amount of details in BG and animations.Especially dynamics part is perfect which is hard to achieve in 2D animations.This is a must watch movie not only for animators but for others too.Kids will love this movie for sure.

      Madagascar3 -Europe's Most wanted is the third movie in the Madagascar Series.If you have seen the first two parts of this movie series,your expectations will be super high.And i would love to tell you that you wont be disappointed at all.
          In this movie,the animals Alex,Marty,Melman and Gloria continues their trip to reach New York,home sweet home.And this time when the penguins(Skipper & Team) are helpless they had to take the help from some Circus animals.Will they reach there?.Or will they be able to be just zoo animals after all these 3 movies full of adventures??..Watch the movie to know the rest.
           When every new animation movie comes out,world animation industry is getting better and better.This fun filled adventure journey movie is no different.Quality of the work the people behind the scenes put into the movie is awesome.And some credit of the story telling of this movie must go to Hans Zimmer(Same guy who did music for Sherlock Holmes movies) the guy who did the awesome background score.Without those songs and music,i don't think the movie would've felt  better.It's a must watch for loyal fans of Madagascar series.If you didn't watched the first two movies,you better watch them first then watch this.
          And a last word to those reviewers who has written that movie is not up to the mark,i'm extremely sorry that you don't know how to watch and review an animation movie.

OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (2006) (French)

                                         Director: Michel Hazanavicius
                                         Genre   : Action, Adventure, Comedy
                                         Cast     : Jean Dujardin, Bérénice Bejo, Aure Atika and Richard Sammel

      First of all sorry for being irregular in last month.I was busy with something else.And i had to wait till i watch a movie which is worth reviewing.And here i am with OSS 117.
       'OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies' is a French movie released in 2006.Its actually a parady on spy film genre especially of James Bond films starring Sean conory .In this movie Jean Dujardin(2011 Oscar awards best actor-'The artist' fame ) acts as a French spy who thinks himself smart.But in actual he always makes mistakes and sometimes get it right.Unlike Johny EnglishOSS117 is more stylish not a super fool.Both are completely different.You have to watch it to understand yourself.It will take sometime to understand the humor if you are not French,but its good .
           Director showed how funny a cliche scene can be if it is lengthened by 10 more seconds or by adding a small bit of dialogue or awkwardness.Jean Dujardin is at his best as OSS117.Its like this character was born for him.It's a must watch if you have watched James Bond movies.(By Bond movies,i didn't meant the Daniel Craig ones,i was talking about the real James Bond movies- from Sean Conory to Pierce Brosnan).
