Saturday Report: A Woman Thought I was 50 and Now I am Obsessing

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.

Saturday Small Talk: It’s Hot! And I Should Have Breakfast

It’s very very hot here.  And I have to go to the protest downtown, but I am going to get myself breakfast before and lunch after as a reward.  Partly because it is too hot to think about cooking or even eating in my apartment, so I should do it while I can while I am out.

Sanju Review (SPOILERS): They Told the Story They Wanted to Tell, Truth Be Damned

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.

TGIF: Sanjay Inspired, Best Gym Looks

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?

Friday Classics: Wake Up Sid, Ranbir’s Best Performance Before Sanju

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.

TGIF (An Early Repost): In Honor of the 4th of July, I Declare Independence…From Clothes (NSFW)

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!

Lazy Thursday Discussion Post: What in a Trailer Makes You Go “Yeah, I’ll Watch That Movie” (Inspired By John in Police Uniform in Satyamev Jayete)

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!

Netflix List For June! Almost Nothing Added Besides Lust

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.)
