Here are movies that I watched at home or in the theatres and reviewed. I watched 53 this year, liked some and did not like some.

In January (10)  I watched - 'Color of Paradise', 'My Friend Pinto', 'The Peaceful Warrior', 'Shagird', 'Dhobi Ghat', 'Memento', 'Ra One', 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' and 'Chillar Party'.

In February (11) I saw - 'Dirty Picture', 'Money Ball', 'Rhapsody in August', 'The Way', 'The Smurfs', 'Throne of Blood', 'Reincarnation of Peter Proud', 'V for Vendetta', 'Ghost Writer', 'Rabbit Proof Fence' and 'Zelig'.

In March (6) I saw - 'Kahaani', 'Manhattan', 'Kashmakash', 'Citizen Kane', 'Good Night Good Luck', 'The Descendants'.

In April (2) it was - 'Pan Singh Tomar', 'Ides of March'.

In May (4) it was - 'Chhota Bheem', 'The Great Dictator', 'Johny English Reborn' and 'The Silent Movie'.

In June (2) - 'The Devil Wears Prada' and 'Vicky Donor'.

In July (1) - '12 Angry Men'.

In August (2) - 'Unstoppable' and 'Hugo'.

In September (6)  - 'Barfi', 'We Bought a Zoo', 'A Separation', 'Doghi', 'Young Frankenstein' and 'Ferrari ki Sawari'.

In October (6) - 'Student of the Year', 'Cocktail', 'Taken 2', 'Zorba the Greek', 'Faltu' and 'Blazing Saddles'.

In November (1) - 'Borat'.

In December (3) it was - 'English Vinglish', 'Tourist' and 'Offside'.

The best of the lot - 'A Separation', 'Color of Paradise', 'Memento', 'Rabbit Proof Fence', 'Zelig', 'Kahaani', '12 Angry Men', 'Pan Singh Tomar', 'Chillar Party', 'Alvin and the Chipmunks' and 'English Vinglish'. The big disappointments were 'Student of the Year', 'Borat', 'Faltu', 'Cocktail', 'My Friend Pinto', 'Ra One'.
At 53, its a sharp drop in movies from the 80 odd last year!
