Big Brother, the West Indies series and Movies

All this hullabulloo about racist taunts on the Celebrity Big Brother show has me quite amused. What's new about racism anyways? We all know that it exists, and most of the Indian's living abroad have faced it, one time or another. And on Big Brother, most of the comments are either because of petty jealousy and sometimes immaturity. But the entire episode has given a great boost to the image of Shilpa Shetty, whose star was definitely ont he wane here at home. Guess all the publicity she's getting out of ths will bode well for her, and hopefully some international offers may also come her way.

The recent squad announced for the West Indies series does not come as a surprise for many. As expected, Sehwag and Pathan got the axe, while Ganguly makes a comeback. But I'm pretty friggin' excited about Robin Uthappa making a comeback into the national team after playing just 2 ODI's the last time around. He's been in great nick in the domestic season this time around, and hopefully he'll carry his form into the national side, putting pressure on Sehwag to retain his spot for the World Cup.

It's been quite some time since I saw a movie, be it on DVD or in a Movie Hall. However, this weekend promises much excitement on that front. I have quite a line-up of movies which are waiting to be watched. Will update and post reviews of the movies later.
