Unthinkable >> 30s review

Image
Steven Arthur Younger (Michael Sheen) is a terrorist who has planted nuclear bombs in three places. The investigation agencies have been unable to get anything out of him. So they call in their secret weapon 'H' (Samuel L. Jackson) - the master interrogator.

Will he be able to get the locations in time to save the lives of millions of innocent people?

Rating: Green - an excellent movie with great acting, amazing story and unforeseen twists. A must watch for sure.

Good Will Hunting >>> 30s review

Image
Will(Matt Damon) is a janitor in MIT. He is also a mathematical genius - and, one without any formal training whatsoever. Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgård) is a mathematics professor who discovers his talent and sees him placed with the big names such as Einstein and Salk.

However, there's a glitch. Due to a disturbed childhood Will has closed himself to the world and he has absolutely no interest in Lambeau's vision. In comes Sean (Robin Williams), a psychologist, who helps Will open up as a person, believe in himself and acknowledge what he truly wants.

Rating: Green - for a great story, and even better performances. A must watch for sure.
