Give me any good movie or a book any day and I will be more than glad to go through them.
Be it an Indian, a Western, European, Japanese, British - anything but in English for now.

Project X (2012) - Comedy
In the series of college disaster
movies – we have another addition in the name of “Project X” with a fantastic
almost unknown cast and a debut Director – this is too good to be missed. Nothing
new or great about it though but a perfect time pass – with a couple of beers
and friends – this could be great fun. They have kept the premise straight and
simple with 4 losers trying to make it big in school by throwing a party that
too with their parents due permission. Because of their no popularity in school
they expect a gathering of 30 odd people but what it turns out in real is
something unbelievable and what they do to the guy's poolside house – whose
celebrating his 17th birthday is something you’ve got to see it to
believe it. How they make it to the Breaking News with a fleet of cops chasing
them in cars and choppers is one hell of a joy ride for the audience. Its one
of those crazy movies that you see on a lighter day and laugh out loud – a damn
good time pass. It has everything in it for everyone, good music, hot chicks,
drugs, sex, tragedy, comedy etc.
The Movie: In Pasadena, Costa and JB plan to throw a party
for their friend Thomas’s 17th Birthday at his house. As that
happens to be his own parents Anniversary weekend – they too go out for the
weekend leaving him alone in the house with strict instructions to have a party
with only 30 odd people, to not to touch the pool or his dad’s Mercedes. He is
although given the keys of his mom’s mini van to drive around if he needs to. They
are a bunch of losers who are almost invisible to the rest of the school hence
they need to make it big by throwing a fantastic party so they become popular
in school. They hire Dax – another student to film the whole birthday party.
The whole movie has that hand held camera shot feel to it because one of them
is shown as shooting it throughout the night. All of them visit a drug peddler
to buy some drugs and end up stealing one his lawn gnome which they plan to use
a party mascot. The whole scene of them buying drugs, stealing the statue and
being chased by the drug dealer is one outstanding shot of the movie with
hilarious stuff. The word of mouth and texts go faster than they think, within
no time almost whole of the school is invited whereas no one has any idea who
this guy Thomas is? Who is throwing a party? He even ends up inviting one of
the hottest chicks of the school with his boyfriend who has a crush on Thomas.
They even hire two cute little security guards to take care of the house as
they plan to do the party on the backyard.
The Party: Because of the mass
invitation and his friends putting the ad on Craiglist and a local ration
station – the public goes out of control. It hilarious to see what it turns out
to be from what they expected. Even the audience gets a shock of their lives by
seeing that kind of a crowd present in the loser’s party. As the party goes on
– they end up breaking the drug dealer’s gnome and realize it was full of
ecstasy tablets which are subsequently consumed by them and it turns out to be
a hell of a situation with whole crowd on a high. What all stunts they do is
mind-blowing to see. The way his whole house is ripped including the pool and
topless babes swimming and running all over is totally awesome. With neighbors
fuming and calling cops the situation goes out of hands. What happens to his
Dad’s car is something you’ve got to see in the movie and how they are first
warned by the cops but later it turns out to be other way round as the mob
bullies the cops and fights back. We were totally in splits with the stunts
that they all do in the party and with so many shockingly comical scenes. They
even make his mother’s dog fly by tying so many balloons on his body. They put
up a board at the pool saying “Only Nude Girls” and the response was hilarious.
Teat a teat with their neighbor who they try to invite to the party too to save
the hassle goes wrong. The scene where they negotiate with cops and whole crowd
hides in the backyard and maintain pin drop silence is totally awesome.

I loved its comic timing with so
many funny guys and situations thrown in. there is this dwarf who some of the
guys put him in a microwave and how he takes revenge on the hosts is one of the
best hilarious stuff. The final half hour of the movie with the mob and cop
action followed by drug dealer’s revenge on the guys is totally freaking stuff.
I mean, I never expected that kind of action – it was totally out n out comic
action. Hilarious stuff and so many “Oh My Fucking God” situations. The final
out come of the movie is too good with Thomas being confronted by his father –
what happens in the school next day is rocking stuff. I would say this was a
damn good time pass movie and should be seen by all for plain and simple fun.
