Eternal Sunshine

This is by far the best movie i have seen this year I cant just seem to get away from this movie Came across this discussion about the movie with the cast and crew

Duplicity movie

Last week i have seen the movie " Duplicity " which stars Julia Roberts and Clive Owen.This is a corporate espionage thriller with a very different ending.I would consider it to be a good movie with some nice scenes.There is very good chemistry between Julia and Clive.This must be a good comeback for Julia.

IPL moving to South Africa

I was really fascinated by the inaugural IPL and had a nice experience watching it last time as it had fulfilled my dream of watching a domestic League of any sport like the NBA or EPL and as indians we must give all our support for such a domestic competition.The western countries have succeeded in developing a strong domestic leagues of every sport and milk money out of it.The US Basketball team finished fifth in the last World Basketball championship but still the NBA earns 50-100 times more than the rest of the world put together.The English soccer team has never looked like winning a world cup but they have the highest earning league in the world which is about 30 times larger than the Brazilian league who never looked like not winning a world cup.Why is this anomaly , shouldn't money follow talent.Not necessarily,cause a country may be good at a sport but if they dont have the economy and adequate infrastructure to showcase the sport as a spectacle then it will not be successful in promoting their league.The United states and England are masters at this game.They have made sure that all their domestic leagues dont just have a loyal support of the local public but also made sure that the world watches their leagues.The EPL has equal number of viewers outside England as in England primarily in the Asian region.Now this is where i think the rest of the world should wake up.
This is where India has joined this game,already IPL is right up there with the top 3 sporting leagues in the world.Now you can call it as a disappointment that the league has moved to South Africa but it will be good if we could market this on a global level and make it entertaining for the global viewer to watch "OUR" league ,then we all could say that India has finally arrived on the Global Arena.
