Movie: The Town

Posted by Mark

I went out and watched the movie The Town last night staring Ben Affleck and Donald Draper from Mad Men. The movie simply is about a group of guys who rob banks and armored trucks while the FBI (Donald Draper) try to catch them. The movie is also directed by Ben Affleck and I think he did a kick ass job. I had already watched the other movie he directed, Gone Baby Gone and thought he brought his own style into it and he did the same thing here. I would easily pay to watch another movie by him. One scene in the movie reminded me of the amazing street battle in the movie Heat so that should give you an idea of how cool this movie is.

Two more movies I need to watch on this trip, Due Date and Social Network.

3:33 – A short Kuwaiti film

Posted by Mark

Looks like a student film but it’s the first locally produced thriller I’ve seen. What we need is a Kuwaiti zombie movie since I don’t think I’ve ever seen a zombie wearing a dishdashe. [Video]

Thanks Salem

Cinescape uploaded pictures of old movie theaters here in Kuwait to their Facebook group with the oldest theater dating back to 1954. I hope they upload pictures of Cinema Salmiya and the drive through cinema as well. [Link]

Thanks Mohammed

Trailer: The Other Guys

Posted by Mark

This “should” be a good movie since it’s starring Michael Keaton, Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Samuel L. Jackson (you need to watch Unthinkable), and The Rock. [YouTube]

A funny movie I recently watched is Hot Tub Time Machine which is about a bunch of guys who travel back to time to the 80′s. Check out the trailer for that below. [YouTube]
