About Me

Hello, my name is Sonal and I'm a movieholic.  Actually, I'm more than slightly obsessed movie fan, a Mac geek and big bookworm, I love to talk about the things I like.  I started up this blog for myself so I could organize my thoughts and the things I like to see and check about the movies that I love and upcoming movies I want to see.  Therefore, you'll find trailers of movies and posters that catch my eye.  I'll post about the castings updates of note and news about films that interest me, movie reviews of films I watch and I also make a point to read the books that the movies themselves are based on. I hope you shall like it too.  Please let me know if you would like to see something posted or covered on this blog, contact me at      for tips and feedback.  I'll surely appreciate it.

In the meantime, here are a few quirks about me and my movie habits:

  • I love listening to and collecting movie soundtracks.  On my iPod, I have a John Williams playlist from E.T., Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Catch Me If You Can, Harry Potter and of course, Jurassic Park, good for a pick-me-up on the crappiest day or to lift your mood higher on your best days as well.
  • I love musicals, it's the Bollywood upbringing in me. 
  • I can't and won't watch horror or ghost stories.  They freak me out too much.  Hence, there will be no mention of horror films on my blogs.  It's a horror-free zone I can be safe in.  
  • I love watching foreign films and I have a soft corner for French comedies (i.e. Amelie and Priceless).
  • Animated films rock!  And they are not only for kids.  I hate this misconception.  People don't fully appreciate all the hard work and detailing that goes into an animated film.  Check out any of the films from Hayao Miyazaki or Aardman Studios.  
  • Kevin Spacey may be a fine award-winning actor and yes, I do like The Usual Suspects but I am forever creeped out by him in Se7en.  Same goes for Ralph Fiennes and Schindler's List.  It does help that he's also He Who Must Not be Named.  
  • At the other end of the spectrum, actors and actresses I like are shiny and sparkly so you'll be seeing a lot of Leonardo DiCaprio, Jake Gyllenhaal, Meryl Streep and the like on here.  Hey, it's my blog and I can do what I want to. 
  • My biggest and main criteria while watching a movie usually are, in order of importance, the story, director, crew and cast.
  • Awards shouldn't really matter so much.  There are some really great artists out there that never really won anything but I love awards season.  The Oscars are like the Holy Grail to me.  I can forget about anything but not the Oscars.   And yes, I do dream of one day holding that shiny, golden statuette in my hands.  
  • I hate people who talk during films in the theaters.  Yes, the aliens should get to zap you.  It's only fair.
