American Graffiti (1973): Facts to Know About This Movie

It may not be the best movie ever made (I give that honor to Casablanca), but it’s the one I like to call my favorite. American Graffiti is such a powerful nostalgia picture that it makes me nostalgic for a time period that I didn’t even live in. The movie was a labor-of-love created by writer/director George Lucas based on memories of his teenage years. The movie became a huge success, gave Lucas the clout to film Star Wars and laid the groundwork for the future careers of Ron Howard, Richard Dreyfuss, Cindy Williams, Harrison Ford and others.

The protagonists of American Graffiti are Curt Henderson (Dreyfuss) and Steve Bolander (Howard). Both are scheduled to head back east for college the next morning. Steve is anxious to get out of his small town, but Curt is thinking of staying put. The two will spend the entire night changing their minds.

The movie also follows the adventures of two of their friends: Terry the Toad (Charles Martin Smith) and John Milner (Paul Le Mat). Both boys spend the night cruising the streets of Modesto, looking for action. The geeky Terry strikes it rich with Debbie (Candy Clark), the adventurous type who finds herself attracted to Terry’s intelligence (or is it the car?).  John is not so looking, winding up in the company of Carol (Mackenzie Phillips), someone’s younger sister who is just that: young. This doesn’t sit well for Milner, who has a reputation to keep. This reputation includes him being an undefeated drag racer, a title that is being threatened by an out-of-town hot rodder (Ford).

The movie bounces back and forth between the four boys and their girlfriends as they have one more night of summer high jinks before separating. It will be a wild night filled with pranks, robberies, make-out sessions, drag races, alcohol, car thefts, sock hops and fist fights.

The plot thread that holds the most meaning for me is that of Curt. Desperate to find the “dazzling beauty I have been looking for all my life,” Curt happens to come across a hot blonde in a White T-Bird who mouths to him an “I-Love-You.”  For Curt, the rest of the movie is a romantic quest as he searches by the blonde, only to be sidetracked by ex-girlfriends, hoodlums and stalled cars. In the end, he seeks the help of the popular Disc Jockey Wolfman Jack.

I’ve heard Wolfman Jack compared with the Wizard in The Wizard of Oz. For the entire film the Wolfman has been built up as some all-powerful figure. Rumors about the Wolfman spread all over the streets and even when Curt visits him, he pretends to be someone else. However, when Toto pulls back the curtain on the radio wizard, Curt learns that he is just a normal person, just like everyone else. The Wolfman grants Curt’s request, playing a dedication to the blonde that results in Curt getting to speak with the girl of his dreams. By this time, however, the events of the previous night have given Curt the courage to face the unknown.

Made ten years after it takes place, American Graffiti is a nostalgia picture in the best way.  It is like a time capsule of the 1960s before it was drastically altered by the assassination of JFK and the Vietnam War. Seeing it today, the movie generates even more nostalgia than it did when first released. It reminds us of a time when the worst things teenagers did was to cherry bomb toilettes, sneak cigarettes and steal change from the local arcade. In a time period where most teenagers must pass through metal detectors to get to class, the world of American Graffiti looks downright wonderful.

Although the movie may fall in the same genre as many inferior high school movies, American Graffiti’s hidden depths rise the film above the rest. In between all the pranks and misadventures, Lucas fills the film with some smart messages. For instance, the movie puts a lot of emphasis on driving and its climactic scene features a drag race. However, during a key scene, John walks Carol through the car graveyard, giving a running narration on just how each car crashed and how many people were killed. While his movie may focus on mischief, Lucas doesn’t fail to point out the consequences.

The movie also serves as a tribute to the Rock & Roll music that Lucas grew up with. He fills the movie almost wall-to-wall with songs from the 50s and early 60s. I sometimes feel that the character of John Milner serves as the stand-in for Lucas himself; and when Milner tells us that “Rock & Roll has been going downhill ever since Buddy Holly died,” we know just how Lucas feels.

It wasn’t too long ago that American Graffiti still held the record for being the most profitable film. That means it made the most money in relation to its budget.  It’s a shame that it had to be dethroned by a movie so far beneath it (The Blair Witch Project). Made on a very limited budget, Lucas was forced to film the movie in a style that was unique at the time. The almost documentary style lends a certain authenticity to the film, which only helps add to the nostalgic feeling of the film.

The movie received five Oscar nominations—Best Picture, Director, Supporting Actress (Clark), Screenplay and Editing—but walked away empty handed. Talk about getting your hopes up, it is said that Lucas stood up when the Best Director was announced as “George . . .” only to embarrassedly sit down win it finished “. . . Roy Hill.”

Having the benefit of being a nostalgia picture, American Graffiti hasn’t aged a bit. It remains one of the most delightful, humorous, touching and quietly powerful films ever made. I have no shame in calling it my favorite movie. It’s a classic, it gets an A+.

Adaptation (2002) Review: Things To know About the Movie

If ever there were a movie that you could call “loosely based” on an existing source, Adaptation is it. It all started when screenwriter Charlie Kaufman (Being John Malkovich) was given the job of adapting Susan Orlean’s book, “The Orchid Thief.” Unable to figure out how to turn the book into a movie, Kaufman put himself into the screenplay. The resulting film has less to do with “The Orchid Thief” and more to do with Kaufman’s attempts to adapt it.

Kaufman (Nicolas Cage) was convinced that he could write the screenplay without turning it into a Hollywood thing. He was determined not to include sex, car chases, characters overcoming huge obstacles and all those other cliché plot devices, but rather to create a totally unique and original story. Unfortunately, with his agent and his producer (Tilda Swinton) breathing down his neck, Charlie agonizes over the script, hardly writing a thing.  To make matters worse, his less talented and less intelligent brother Donald (also Cage) has just sold his first screenplay.

The movie bounces back and forth in time and between Kaufman and Susan Orlean (Meryl Streep) in her efforts to write a New Yorker story on an Orchid lover named John Laroche (Chris Cooper). Laroche has found a way to steal the endangered flower off of nature reserves by recruiting the help of local Indians, for whom it is not illegal to steal the Orchids.  Orlean is a sophisticated New Yorker, but she begins to develop an attraction to the rugged, toothless Laroche.

Meanwhile, Kaufman—still unable to write a thing—is developing a crush of his own on Susan. He travels to New York in hopes of meeting and getting to know her, but his own insecurities—which he has many—keep him from talking to her. Desperate, Charlie enlists the help of his brother and reluctantly attends a screenwriting seminar in which lecturer Robert McKee (Brian Cox) teaches young screenwriters how to take apart old movies and rehash them into new screenplays.

The first half of Adaptation is just as jumbled as the thoughts that go through Charlie’s mind—revealed to us in a hilarious voice-over—as he tries to write. The movie starts during the filming of director Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman’s last film, Being John Malkovich, jumps all the way back to the beginning of time, moves back to Kaufman, and then to Orlean’s original interviews with Laroche and back again to the beginning of time, etc. As the movie moves on it begins to become more streamlined and straightforward.  Not mistakenly the movie really takes shape once Charlie asks Donald to help him with the screenplay. I never could figure out which direction this movie was taking me, but I eagerly awaited each new step. The movie’s final act is ironically amusing and probably the most fitting ending of any movie I have seen all year.

In the end, it seems Kaufman has succeeded in creating the unique movie he set out to do.  Adaptation is probably the most original movie to come out since, well, Being John Malkovich. Not only is it an absorbing, compelling and hilariously funny film in itself, but it is also a documentary on its own creation. No need for a “Making of” featurette, when this movie comes out on DVD, we have already seen it. This movie had me completely absorbed from the very beginning and it never let up until it ended. I could never quite figure out which direction it was going to take me, but I could not wait to find out.

Nicolas Cage delivers a brilliant performance as the two brothers. He has so completely developed the two characters that we never get confused which is which. Aided by the excellent trick photography, I had to keep reminding myself that, yes, that is the same actor playing both parts. Meryl Streep also gives a terrific performance, showing off both a lighter side and a darker side that we aren’t used to seeing from the actress. Still, stealing the show is Chris Cooper, who is darkly hilarious as the thieving flower lover. This performance surpasses his own scene-stealing performance as the homophobic Marine with a secret in American Beauty, as one of the best supporting performances in recent memory.

Adaptation succeeds on all levels and seems destined to be an Oscar contender.  For my money, it is definitely one of the best movies of the year.  I give it an A.

Alien (1979) :Facts to Know About This Movie

The scariest movie ever made?  Maybe, maybe not, but for my money it is definitely in the top 5. When you come right down to it, director Ridley Scott’s second film (following 1977’s The Duellists) is simply a haunted house movie set in space. Throughout his career, Scott has been very good at combining a couple of tried-and-true genres and, in effect, creating an entirely new genre in the process. Immediately following the horror and science-fiction mixture of Alien, Scott would make Blade Runner, a film that combines the science-fiction genre with film noir.

In recent years Scott has created a number of memorable, Oscar-winning films including Thelma & LouiseBlack Hawk Down and Gladiator, but Alien is the movie that started it all and it can be easily argued that it remains his best. Sure the Alien series has certainly suffered some serious blows in the form of the dismal Alien 3 and the only slightly less drab Alien: Resurrection, but the original remains a classic.  As does director James Cameron’s first sequel Aliens, which is worthy of a classic movie review of its own at some later date.

Alien opens slowly, with little happening for the film’s first 45 minutes. The crew of the mining spaceship Nostromo is awoken from their frozen slumber to learn that instead of returning home, the ship’s central computer (named “Mother”) has rerouted them to a mysterious planet.  The crew—including Captain Dallas (Tom Skerritt), science officer Ash (Ian Holm), deck officers Ripley (Sigourney Weaver), Kane (John Hurt), Lambert (Veronica Cartwright) and engineering officers Parker (Yaphet Kotto) and Brett (Harry Dean Stanton)—have been ordered to investigate a mysterious signal that has been emanating from the planet’s surface.  Is it an SOS call or a warning?  Perhaps they should have looked more into it before setting out to explore.

While exploring the source of the signal—a seemingly deserted spaceship whose commander seems to have become petrified to his command chair—Kane discovers a cargo holed filled with dozens and dozens of alien eggs. In one of cinema’s biggest “jumps” a slimy creature leaps out from one of the eggs and attaches itself onto the overly curious face of Kane.  Kane is brought back onto the ship where the creature mysteriously detaches himself from Kane and dies. All is seemingly well when Kane awakens from his coma and the crew is set for one more dinner before returning to their frozen slumber for the ride home. The dinner scene would quickly become one of the most famous in Hollywood history.

What a shock it must have been in 1979 when Kane’s convulsions ended with that phallic looking creature popping out of his chest.  One can imagine the shock being comparable to Janet Leigh’s fateful shower in Psycho.

The remainder of the film has a lot in common with modern horror flicks in which the heroes are killed off by the monster one-by-one. What makes Alien stand out from these other films is directly attributable to the film’s deliberately paced first half. The fact that nothing happened in the film for 45 minutes was a major concern for studio executives when the film was being made in 1978. Fortunately, Scott was able to convince them that it was the right way to go. Like Hitchcock before him, Scott knew that it was the suspense before the shock that keeps the audience in their seats, not the shock itself. He knew that if he could just pull his audience along for that first act that he would then have them exactly where he wanted them.

The movie is a perfect example of suspense starting small and building to a point where it is almost unbearable. As the ship awakens from its slumber at the beginning, the camera slowly and smoothly moves through the ship, Jerry Goldsmith’s ominous score sets a quiet tone and the lighting is stark, but simple. We, as an audience, are relaxed, but curious about where this movie is taking us. The stillness is disturbed in the middle of the film by the big “jumps” and by the end, the camera is frantically racing with the characters through the film’s claustrophobic corridors filled with CO2, flashing strobe lights and accompanied by ear-piercing alarms. At this point, we are on the edge of our seats ready to leap.

Although the film’s scares are generated mostly by its suspense, Scott also knew—as he comments in his DVD commentary—that cheap shocks were still a major part of the horror genre and Alien is not without its share. The alien reaching out at a half-naked Sigourney Weaver in the shuttle is just one such example.

Misdirection also plays a major part in the film’s scares and suspense. First of all, Scott plays with the order in which the deaths come and so we can never really be sure about who is going to be next. For example, today’s audiences certainly know that Sigourney Weaver will be the only one standing at movie’s end, but who in 1979 would have guessed? Weaver was an unknown actress that had appeared in only two major films before—a bit part in Woody Allen’s Annie Hall and the obscure Madman—and typical Hollywood logic of the time would argue that she would be the first to go.

Later in the film when Ripley retreats back to find the cat, it seems certain that she would be the next to die. Not only has she wandered off alone (usually the big tip-off), but the scene echoes back to the earlier death of Brett, who was also tracking down the cat.

The character who seemed the most obvious choice to be the hero was Dallas, not only because he is played by top-billed star Tom Skerritt, but because, well, he’s a man and women just don’t survive in movies like this. But Dallas was the third to go and in actuality the only two women in the movie were the last two standing (with the exception of the cat, who may have also been a female).

Alien opened a whole new acting world for Weaver.  She earned her first Oscar nomination when she reprised the role of Ripley in 1986’s Aliens and to this day remains the immediate comparison for other actresses that headline action films, such as Angelina Jolie and Geena Davis. Over the years, Weaver has proved one of Hollywood’s most diverse actresses, equally at home in drama (Gorillas in the Mist; Copycat) and comedy (Ghostbusters; Working Girl).

Scott has said that he has always wanted to make another Alien film (the original is the only one he worked on) that goes back to the home planet of the alien species that the crashed ship belonged to; a species that was wiped out by the alien being it harvested as a weapon.  Mr. Scott, I can’t wait.

Horror movies have never been my personal favorite genre, but when they are as brilliantly made as Alien, I just can’t resist.  It is a classic, it gets an A+.

Big Fish (2003) :Facts to Know About This Movie

If there is one thing you can say about the films of director Tim Burton from Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands to Batman and Sleepy Hollow—it is that they are always visually stunning; and his new film, Big Fish, is no exception.  From 15-foot tall giants to small, quirky, hole-in-the-wall towns, the movie is a delight to watch. The unique story is not too bad either.

“Most people will tell you a story straight through. It won’t be complicated, but it won’t be interesting either,” the dying Edward Bloom (Albert Finney) tells his pregnant daughter-in-law. Edward and his son Will (Billy Crudup) have not spoken for a good three years after Will finally grew tired of his father’s insistence to tell wild fabricated stories about his life.  Through various flashbacks the film takes us through the story of Edward’s life, just as he would tell us.

After growing up the toast of the small town of Ashton, Alabama—where the glass eye of the local witch revealed the manner of his death—Edward left the town flanked by a 15-foot giant, determined that he was meant for bigger things.  After a short detour in a pastoral little town—“so strange, yet so familiar”—Edward meets the love of his life at a circus.  Edward spends the next three years doing various jobs for the circus ring-master (Danny DeVito), in exchange for one new fact about his love a month.  When he finally learns that she is Auburn student Sandra Templeton (Alison Lohman), Edward leaves the circus and refuses to let any detail—such as Sandra already being engaged—stand in the way of him and the woman he is going to marry.

Will has heard all of these stories a million times and they have pushed him away from the father he never believed he really knew. With his father’s life coming to an end, Will might finally get the opportunity to understand who his father really is.

Big Fish is a delightful movie that seems to strive for Forrest Gump-like success (it even takes place in Alabama) and although it falls short of that classic film, it is not without its charms. Ewan McGregor delivers another fine performance as the younger Edward Bloom.  With the naiveté quality and complete determination in winning the woman he loves, McGregor plays this role almost as an extension of his Moulin Rouge persona, with a little bit of Down with Love’s cocky Catcher Block thrown in.

The relationship between the father and son—which is what the movie was really about—does not seem to be fleshed out as much as it could.  Instead, the relationship in the film I found most interesting was between Finney and Jessica Lange as the elder Edward and Sandra Bloom.  The two great actors are both terrific in their roles; particularly in an emotional bathtub scene.

Recently nominated for four Golden Globe nominations including Best Picture (Musical or Comedy) and Best Supporting Actor (Finney), Big Fish is a touching and offbeat fish story.  I give it a B+.

What to look for while buying Leave-in-Conditioner for Beautiful Hair

Most people are not aware of what kind of leave-in-conditioner they need for their hair type and that is the reason why they end up buying the wrong one which doesn’t work at all. Let’s talk about why you need a leave-in-conditioner in the first place. There must have been a time in your life when you are doing everything you possibly could to get silky smooth hair but still nothing, no improvement. That is because normal conditioners get to work your hair for less than 5 minutes before you rinse it. And that is exactly why you need a leave-in-conditioner to maximize the impact for a longer period. Here is our guide to buying the one made for you.

Hair Type

Yes, first you need to figure out what type of hair you have and then choose accordingly.

Normal Hair

If you have normal hair, then you can go for literally anything. Although, do look for a balancing formula so that your hair stays that way only.

Oily Hair

If you have an oilier scalp and your hair gets tacky and oily then stay away from any kind of moisturizing, soothing, and hydrating formula. Look for something that is more protein-based so if provides smoothness along with removing excess oil.

Dry or Damaged Dull Hair

If your hair is dull, damaged and you have a dry scalp then, by all means, look for something moisturizing, soothing, and really hydrating for your hair for that silky smooth hair.

Fine Hair

If you are facing hair fall and don’t have much hair. Then look for a volumizing one. That can make your hair more bouncy and soft to make it look like you have volume.

Curly or Freezy Hair:

One of the worst struggles, people with curly hair face is frizz. So look for something that can take our frizz ensuring smooth curls.


Always check the main ingredients of the product before buying it to get a better idea about the particular product. It’s mostly written on the product itself that what main ingredients it carries and after that you can Google the benefits it can give you and for your hair type.


There are many formulas available in the market. Get one that caters to your hair needs. Before that test what kind of hair you have and shop accordingly. And to decide what kind of formula suits your hair get samples first or ask a friend who has the same hair type and you can always Google your query regarding a particular product.


And yes, look at the price point of the product too, because you will be using it 3 to 4 times a week. And quantity matters too because of the length of your hair you might need more or less product. So get yourself something that does not affect your pocket that much.

7 Best Books for Introverts of all Time

Just a few days ago someone quoted on Facebook, “Life of an introvert revolves around books, coffee, rains, and a hoodie. Well, the post was supposed to be funny but honestly, I couldn’t agree more as this is what my life looks like. I myself am an introvert and I know that we are more likely to fall in love with books and coffee than with people.

As an introvert, I find the best way to recharge myself is to read books. So to my kind of fellows,

Here is a List of Books They Can Read to keep up the Spirit

Walden by Henry David Thoreau

Imagine your life inside a cabin that too in the forest. Sounds interesting? Well, in the book “Walden” Henry David Thoreau talks about his experience living in a cabin inside the woods and falling in love with a much simpler life, and being quite comfortable in the natural setting away from the society.

The Complete Poems by Emily Dickinson

A lot of Emily Dickinson’s poems reflect her own sentiments about people and her unwillingness to confront the outside world. “The Complete Poems” are a set of poems by Emily where she certainly could portray every introvert’s thoughts in her own way.

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

The sweet and simple Jane Eyre always used to get lost in her own thoughts and feelings since childhood. She is one of the most relatable introverts who often used to be contempt with her own little world and literature rather than being tempted with any complicated human drama.

The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery

 The story of the novel actually explains the life of many other introverts. The story talks about characters who feel they should hide their true selves from the world and become someone else as they think that the real world will not accept who they really are. Well, this makes sense to a lot of people in the world now.

Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro

The story deals with two characters basically – an extrovert Ruth and Kathy, an introvert girl. Where the two of them contrast each other completely, the character Kathy will be highly appreciated by the introverts as an observant; you might also feel Kathy be a detached and passive narrator of the book.

The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Díaz

This novel deals with just another boy next door yet with a beautiful meaning. Oscar is an overweight Dominican boy who is hopelessly romantic and who believes in magical realism. He’s a quirky and unlikely protagonist who loves to read science fiction and fantasy books and is obsessed with what he believes to be a family curse.

Perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky

The story begins with a quiet, sensitive, 15-year-old boy named Charlie writing letters about his life to an unknown recipient. Charlie chooses that person because he said that he heard the person was nice and thought that this person would not be judgemental. Well, Charlie is brilliantly portrayed as an introverted, quiet, socially awkward, and brilliant character by Chbosky.
