It’s a lonely boring day, the dvd rental shop is closed and you dont have enough energy to visit the nearest cinema hall. So, what you do now? Download latest movies over the internet and watch them? Oh Yeah! Seems like a good idea! You hurridely open your computer, search google for downloading free movies, you land up on a site, and just when you click “Download” the website starts asking for money, credit card details, where do you live, and how many dogs you have, etc, etc. Being frustrated and rebuked you close your computer, and go off to sleep. This is called waste of energy, time, and in some cases, money.

Isn’t there any solution to this problem?

Yes, there is! A couple of months ago a new website has been launched, it’s name is Gingle ( Now what’s new in that? The answer is everything. Unlike other movie downloading websites which charges you 15$ -16$ for downloading latest flicks and 8$ -9$ for downloading older counterparts, Gingle does’nt charge you anything!! Nor this site asks for any user registration, etc.

For downloading movies what you have to do is to just visit Gingle, go to download section, select your movie, and click the download button, save the movie to your computer and when download completes kick back, watch and relax!!. Can there be anything more easy and simple than that?

Gingle has the best aspects of a movie website:

1- NO CREDIT CARD REQUIRED – Perhaps the first good reason why anyone should download movies from gingle. So, say good-bye to those websites which require you to enter your credit card details and deprieve you of your hard earned cash in the name of downloading movies.

2- LATEST MOVIES availiable – The Second best reason for downloading movies from gingle. Gingle ensures that it’s users get quality, free latest hollywood movies for download free of cost, so dont be surprised to see latest hollywood flicks on it’s download page, just after 2-3 days of their release.

3- NO ACCOUNT, NO FUSS – It is normal for people to forget their username or password, so for added bonus you dont even have to register with them, recieve their news letter etc, etc. Put into another words, visit,click,download and enjoy!

4- NO ADS – like other websites filled with advertising, popups, animation ads, etc gingle gives you a respite with it’s clean looks and no ad policy.

5- CAN’T FIND? REQUEST THEM – You cannot find your favourate movies? request for them in the movie request form, and see them added for download.

6- GINGLE TOOLBAR- Gingle wants it’s users to be updated with the movies being added to Gingle, so it provides a nifty toolbar known as “Gingle bar” this toolbar is a lightweight toolbar which not only provides you alerts on the new movies being added but also provides you links to the movie download section. The toolbar requires atleast FireFox 2.0 or Internet Explorer 6.0 (default with Windows Xp).

So, always remember that movies can always be downloaded from

And do tell about it to every idiot who goes around saying “Movies cant be downloaded for free from the internet”! – that’s what we believe in!

short film
by George M. Groutas

This past weekend, at the recommendation of a friend and colleague, I treated myself to a wonderful comedy/drama short about people and relationships, titled Socks and Cakes, a Woody Allen inspired short from writer / director Antonio Padovan.

Shot in New York City’s Greenwich Village, the fifteen minute film takes a comic and dramatic look at the jealousies and frustrations that arise between five friends who have gathered together for a dinner party. They flirt. They drink. They argue. They talk about love, sex and life. They come for a lamb dinner and red wine, but some of the characters end up walking away with so much more.

I have to tell you that even for a fifteen minute short film, I saw a beginning, a middle and an end…and found it all utterly charming and even a little moving. I’ll take a film like this over  3-D any day of the week.

Writer / director Padovan’s film stars an immensely talented actor named Timothy J. Cox (his delivery and demeanor reminiscent of a young Richard Dreyfuss) as Harry, a downtrodden literature professor who still has very strong feelings for his ex-wife Amanda, played by the luminous Kirsty Meares.

Meares’ Amanda is now married to Harry’s best friend Richard (Jeff Moffitt), but there’s trouble in Richard and Amanda’s marriage, although Amanda tries to put on a brave face as the party she and Richard are planning is about to start. Aside from Harry, the other guests expected to attend are cocky real estate giant David (Ben Prayz) and his young girlfriend, the seductive Sophie (Alex Vincent). Upon meeting Sophie, Richard is quite taken with her and his nowhere near subtle flirtations with her begin. Harry is also fascinated by Sophie, but more for the fact that she’s with an idiot like David (his words). Harry’s dislike of David stems, I imagine, from his suspicions that David and Amanda were intimate in the past; a fact Amanda confirms in the films’ final and best scene. In it, Amanda, in a wine fueled rage, admits to Harry that her marriage to Richard is ending and that her future is uncertain.

Socks and Cakes is not a film about solving life’s problems; it’s a film about simply addressing those life problems, which people commonly don’t like to do. The problems that these characters face in the film, issues with commitment, insecurity and trust, don’t get solved quickly, certainly not in fifteen minutes, but in Padovan’s film, we see a glimpse…a sign, a hope that people like Harry and Amanda are going to take the steps to make it better. 

Padovan’s script weaves between sharp and funny word play, especially when all five characters sit for dinner and muse on various topics, to some very moving and dramatic revelations about the insecurities that we all feel about where our lives have gone and where they have not. At fifteen minutes, Padovan shows us some very interesting characters. 

Shot in continuous takes, the film moves at a crisp pace, with scenes flowing nicely from one to the next. Credit for the stellar camera work goes to director of photography Alessandro Penazzi, whose work impresses here. 

All of the performances are spot on. This is a true ensemble piece, although Cox and Meares are exceptional…especially Cox, who manages to bring considerable warmth and charm to the role of the hapless schnook Harry.

Socks and Cakes is not a film that you’re likely going to see at a movie theatre near you, although I hope that big things happen for the film in the future.

According to, the film has received great reviews across the board from numerous sites on the internet.

If you wish to view the film yourself, visit the films’ official website at
