I am getting more and more fond of Allu Arjun with every movie. He has this attitude like he is playing someone playing a movie hero, you know? It’s all just slightly exaggerated, and I love it.
I wrote this Fanfic ages ago and not many people read it. But I figure if it is ever going to get any attention, Harry Potter’s birthday is the best chance.
Thanks to Alisa/Bollywood Newbie for the idea! I always think it is good to give positive feedback, so let’s talk about what actresses we admire most for what they have done for women. Maybe it will just be me and Alisa going back and forth, but we’ll have a good time and that is good enough.
This is usually the day I do my box office report, but I went over to BH to get the numbers and ran into a bunch of news stories I thought I should talk about first. So box office is coming, eventually, but first news for us!
Interesting movie. Some of it I liked, some of it I didn’t, but most of all it had a middle aged working woman heroine going up against a young single guy antagonist! Very odd combination, very satisfying.
I’ve got a church thing that’s blowing up a little bit, and I should be calling people and asking them for money for my job, and I also should be working on my Monday Malayalam review, but I don’t want to do any of that! I want to look at pictures of Dog Hazel. And if you feel the same way, this is the post for you. Or, you can go look at the last post and comment over there. The point is, I need procrastination buddies!
It’s Monday, I feel the need for a distraction from work. And anonymous and I have just been discussing an important issue that I feel deserves the full attention of us all: Is Jimmy Shergill or Jugal Hansraj better in Mohabbatein? And, on the other end, is Uday Chopra or Amitabh worse? This made me realize that we really need to hash this out for multiple films.
Trailer time! All of this are old and late, but I don’t care, I still want to hear what you have to say about them.
Happy Monday! Now is the point in the summer when I start to think “oh thank goodness, a weekend when I DON’T have to go outside and have fun”. Which is next weekend. Except that I am also doing the church service, so actually I’ve got about 6 hours already gone. Sigh.
How is this the first time I remembered to celebrate Sonu’s birthday? Oh well, to make up for it, I will do 30 songs, to match his birth date of July 30th.
Sorry sorry sorry! Yesterday just completely wiped me out (22 guests is too many guests, especially when one of them has severe dementia and 4 of them are small children). So I literally have not left my bed all day, and every time I try to think straight and come up with a brilliant fanfic, it all just sort of floats away from me. So I am doing a reprint and failing you, my faithful readers. Oh well, at least it is a really good reprint, based on Daboo Ratnani photos and Sanjay Dutt and his dog. Continue reading
Need a break from weekend fun? Have stuff that can’t wait for Monday to talk about? This is the place!
I did eyes last week, and now I guess I am just moving up on the body? Seems like maybe it would make more sense to move down, but I have far stronger opinions about hair than I do about noses.
One of these things has a much greater effect on my life than the other. Totally throws my Bharat plans for a loop, and probably throws everyone’s Bharat plans for a loop. Including the Bharat team.
Filmilibrarian just said in a comment that she was trying to get back to listening to more music, and we had a nice exchange about the songs we like. And since I just put up my Ali Zafar post and need something to decompress with, and something to make us all a community even if we disagree, I thought it might be nice to have a little friendly “lets all enjoy stuff together” post.
Don’t read the SPOILER review! Not if you have a chance of seeing the movie. There are a lot of delightful twists that are all the more fun for being surprises. Instead, read the no spoiler review here. Oh, and if you want to talk about Ali Zafar as a person, you can do that on my special post on him here.
Just throwing this up here so I have something ready to go while I am working on other longer posts. You can watch it if you want to see me talk, but there’s no new information. Or new Dog Hazel.
First, if you want to talk about Ali’s personal issues, jump over to this post. I put it up specially so I could segregate Ali-the-person discussion from Ali-the-actor/director/producer. Separate from that, read this review and not the SPOILER review if you can’t see the movie! It’s a great film with a lot of surprising twists and deserves to be watched with fresh eyes.
I hate these controversies, because everyone gets very excited by the first statement, and then forgets to follow the story and loses track of the follow-up. And I don’t want my review of Ali’s new movie (which I LOVED) to get bogged down in going over and over and over this stuff. So let’s get it out of the way first.
Happy Wednesday! I stayed out way way way too late last night watching a movie in theaters that I LOVED (reviews going up at some point today). So, I am a bit sleep-deprived, but I am never too tired to hear from you all. Tell me about your lives!
I know I know, lots of little posts today and only one substantive one. Sorry! Some days are just like that. But at least it gives me a chance to catch up on trailers.
I think maybe I should just accept that Tuesdays will always be horrible. After last week’s terrible Tuesday, I’m having another “can’t think straight because so much is happening” day at work. So I am going to be lazy and do a post just for Angie, National Police Day in Poland. Well, Angie and all of us who enjoy attractive movie stars in police uniform.
Bad week all around! Sanju is slowing way way down, Dhadak is not a hit (no matter what everyone is saying), and Soorma is a big flop. Bad week to own a movie theater.
