Well, I’m back from the protest. Which turned into sort of a nice day in downtown Chicago. But also a day of ups and downs.
I’m back! 6 hours of sleep, and now I am refreshed and ready to move on to the SPOILERS review, after having already written the No Spoilers review. Which will be super fun for me, having just spent a month learning in detail everything about what “really” happened in Sanjay’s life (you can read that here). And therefore knowing just what this film changed. Which is EVERYTHING.
I’m back! From an incredibly hot drive to the theater, back to the sanctuary of my nice cool bedroom, with Dog Hazel stretched out panting on the floor. Time to start writing some kind of a review of this thing.
This comes right up to the line of acceptable objectification. But I think we are still okay, because it’s not like we are saying anything about their basic bodies, or comparing them with non-muscley guys (Abhishek, you are the best), or even muscle to muscle. Merely in terms of the clothes they have chosen to wear, and the moments they have allowed to be photographed, who is the best?
Happy Friday! I just rapid re-released all my Sanjay posts, I’m driving to work so I can zip home, walk Dog Hazel and then zip out again to catch the Sanju release at the earliest possible show. Busy times! But first I want to take a moment to remember a completely different kind of film that I still think is Ranbir’s best performance.
I have to admit, this is partly because I thought I looked really good in my new dress. Only it didn’t come through as well in video. Curses! Anyway, the content is good and whatever too.
The 4th of July is on a Wednesday this year, so no TGIF. But I couldn’t forgo this post, especially since there are updates to it for this year, so I am putting it up early. And sneaking it out mid-afternoon on a Thursday, hoping that it doesn’t permenantly damage my brand. Whatever, it’s a long week, sometimes you can’t wait until Friday!
It’s hot, the week isn’t over yet, and I am trying to avoid starting Sacred Games (it’s just SO BIG. I’m hoping if I carry it around with me everywhere, I can read it by osmosis). So, let’s have a totally frivolous and silly discussion!
Filmed immediately after that last video, so I look even hotter. Not “hot” as in “attractive” but “hot” as in “my face is red and my hair is falling down”. But hey, the content is good! And that’s what really matters, right? Good content?
Well, I made a youtube video. In my hot living room at the end of a long day with Dog Hazel poking and bugging me the whole time. So the appearance is not the best, but the content is great!
Hello hello! Twitter had all kinds of homework for me this morning, soooooooooooo many trailers.
Time for a Netflix update! Which I only do once a month or so, so it’s not up to the minute accurate. But hopefully I make up for that with the descriptions I give them. (Accessbollywood.net does the real work of keeping this list updated, you should definitely absolutely subscribe to them for your day to day updates.)
Sorry non-US folks, this has nothing to do with you. But for those of you in America, the Supreme Court’s decision yesterday on the Muslim Ban is so closely related to the topic of this blog that I want to do a post on it. (no comments, because this is a simple FYI post)
