Siddhartha Vaidyanathan on Sachin Tendulkar

Sure @sidvee overwrites sometimes but his nostalgic piece on #Sachin was a good one. Great memories esp the TV shows! http://t.co/8DiRyASE55

The Broken Circle Breakdown

The Broken Circle Breakdown: Whew! Talk about an emotional roller coaster! Uneven but engrossing. Great perfs by Heldenbergh & esp Baetens.

Brady Beats Manning (Again!)

I love #Federer (#GOAT) and #Peyton...but they always lose to #Nadal & #Brady in the big game. G*dd*mnit! Awful loss for #Broncos! @SNFonNBC

Calder and Abstraction

Calder and Abstraction: Beautifully put together by @LACMA & Gehry(?!). Up close you really see the engineering & art in harmony. Stunning!

Dan Rather ESPN OTL JFK Special

Great stuff from @OTLonESPN about #JFK The great @DanRatherReport should really be on @CBSNews talking about that day http://t.co/4hQ5nLQOQk

Inside Llewyn Davis

Inside Llewyn Davis: Once again a "smaller" Coen Brothers shines unexpectedly. Sad, funny & poignant as only they can do. Isaac, who knew?!

Her: I appreciate that Jonze is growing up, but sometimes I wish he would go back to his younger Kaufman-esque self. Johansson is great!

The Great Beauty

The Great Beauty: Like the camerawork by DP Bigazzi the film is melancholy, languid & hearbreakingly beautiful. Brava Sorrentino & Servillo!

Sachin Tendulkar Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: #Sachin #Tendulkar retires. According to @BCCI, the universe, as we know it, has ended. #ThankYouSachin

15 November 2013

Dario Franchitti Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: Dario #Franchitti retires. Erstwhile Mr. Ashley Judd seemed like a nice guy. Sad to see him go due to a crash.

Sachin Tendulkar Final Batting Innings

Wow! Has G*d (aka #Sachin #Tendulkar) played his final innings (nice 74!)? @BCCI is begging #WestIndies to make it to 2nd innings. #IndvWI

Celeb Sighting: Andy Garcia

3rd-Greatest Celeb Sighting, Ever!: Andy Garcia driving around Hollywood in a gigantic Escalade, looking very good for his age.

Clayton Kershaw Wins the CY Young (2013)

Nice! #Kershaw wins #CyYoung! Too bad #Puig got hosed for #ROTY. Maybe they'll make up for #Kemp and give the #MVP to #Hanley! ;-) #Dodgers

The Lunchbox (Dabba)

The Lunchbox (#Dabba): Oh man can't believe young(!) Batra made such a great film first time out! Somewhere Hrishikesh Mukherjee is smiling.

12 Years a Slave

12 Years a Slave: My G*d! What a film! Unrelenting & unforgettable! Just hand the Oscars to McQueen, Nyong'o & Ejiofor & call it a day!

10 November 2013

Saving Mr. Banks

Saving Mr. Banks: aka Oscaring Ms. Thompson! Yup, she's as great as advertised. Good ol' Hanks & esp Giamatti totally elevate the material.

Emma Thompson Q&A

Hoo boy! They should give Emma Thompson an #Oscar for her tour-de-bl**dy-force Q&A with Leonard Maltin alone What a performance! @SidGrauman

The Wind Rises

The Wind Rises: Beautiful, elegiac, bittersweet. At turns unnerving & charming, it's the perfect (if sad) swansong for the great Miyazaki.

07 November 2013

Oregon Upset by Stanford

Sad to see #Pac12 lose a #BCS title shot again. #Ducks lose another must-win game. Let's hope Famous #Jameis brings down the Evil Empire!

The National - Lean (Catching Fire Soundtrack)

Uh-oh, looks like I may have to watch #CatchingFire after all! Check out TBH's fave @The_National's "#Lean": http://t.co/xmbmyJSdRY

Roger Federer - Coffee Machine Ad

Nice! #Federer may not be able to serve it up quite like he used to on the #tennis court but he's great at coffee! http://t.co/ipiFDIYXbc

Diwali Rocket to Mars

The perfect way to celebrate #Diwali: Send a rocket to Mars! Great achievement for #India...pending a successful landing. :-)

Captain Phillips

Captain Phillips: Expertly crafted by master filmmaker Greengrass, though it gets too much at the climax. Abdi is a searing screen presence.

Indian Batsmen Thrash Australia

#Shikhar, #Kohli, #Rohit have reached #BigPapi level. Hopefully they did it naturally. Big win for #India due to crazy ODI rules. #IndvAus

The Counselor

The Counselor: Looks like old man Cormac's been reading his own press Loved Ridley's precise dark direction of the over-written/wrought mess

01 November 2013

All Is Lost

All Is Lost: Brave effort by Chandor to make a contemplative, melancholy survival film. Redford is extraordinary. The ending is... ! ;-)
