Well, I’ve hurt Shahrukh by not doing a full real Shahrukh Month celebration, and now he is posting posters right after I get off twitter and go to work. I’m sorry Shahrukh!!!! I still love you! Anyway, I will try to make up for it by giving this poster it’s very own post.
Our last Shahrukh Month Review! So SAD!!!! There is still Jab Harry Met Sejal Day to look forward to on Sunday, but that won’t be a “new” movie to the blog. Oh well, there’s always the much less important holiday seasons of Diwali and Christmas to look forward to once Shahrukh Month is over.
Fun fun! Dog Hazel had three costumes, two cute and one scary. And I had one, which turned out unexpectedly sexy. No party this year, I just dressed us up and took photos for fun.
I almost put up a post just for Kedarnath yesterday, but patience was rewarded and today there are two other trailers to go along with it.
Happy Wednesday! I can’t believe I’m not even halfway through this week. I think either we need to lose a whole bunch of clients or my boss has to hire another person to help me. Thank goodness I have Shahrukh’s Birthday to look forward to on Friday and Jab Harry Met Sejal Day on Sunday.
You ready to get spooooooooooky? Well, kind of. I can’t really think of many super scary Indian films.
Well, this is embarrassing. I am unable to keep up the schedule I set for myself. Oh well.
I just had my usual agonizing ten minutes of deep moral complexity when deciding what milk to buy, and I thought I would walk you all through it so you know that I’m not just insane about overthinking movies, it’s my whole life.
Today was already a crazy day at work, and then the fire alarm went off and made it crazier. So there is no way I will be able to write a substantive post today (especially since I still have to write tomorrow’s K3G review) and instead I am just going to repost some old Halloween content. Halloween! It’s a thing! Continue reading
Cross-media promotional announcement! Just like a real grown up person! You can listen to me talk too loud and too much on a podcast!
Question from Procrastinatrix! Which I really liked so I am using. We have talked a lot about the movies or TV series we want from him as an actor, but what would we like to see him do beyond that?
Here’s a random review! Shahrukh’s birthday/Diwali is not a good time to also have a series of work disasters. So I am writing a review of an interesting movie that I watched ages ago and I know other people are really eager to discuss.
This is a question someone asked me ages back and it has stuck with me. So I am stealing it to see if anyone can come up with a better answer than me!
Happy Monday! I had a long wonderful lazy weekend, and even found time to vacuum, and now I am trying to get back into “work mode” in my head. Help me!
I love Koffee season. And this was another great episode, I didn’t think Ranveer and Akshay would work well (and there were a few draggy parts), but they turned out to have great chemistry!
I would say “why didn’t anyone tell me how good this movie is?”, but then there have been people screaming at me in the comments to watch it for months now, so I can’t really say that. Anyway, it’s good! Really good! Running Shaadi good (my gold standard for overlooked brilliant little rom-coms).
I already did two posts on the criticisms I agree with (here and here). This is Shahrukh month, so we aren’t going to deal with those. Instead we are going to vent about the criticisms that tend to come up which are most unjustified, in this safe fan only space where we can all agree (or mostly agree) with each other.
I know India has a somewhat thriving horror business now, and horror films are definitely not my genre (I have seen three), but it’s Halloween week, so it seemed appropriate.
We were talking in the Jab Tak Hai Jaan review about how “Ishq Shava” was such a different style of dance for Shahrukh and that got me thinking about the other songs that really showcase his dancing. If I miss one, feel free to add it in the comments. Oh, and this is NOT “Best Songs”. There’s all kind of amazing song sequences with perfect performances from him that are not included here, because they didn’t highlight dancing.
You know those movies where you kind of hope the power goes out at the theater so you can stop watching it? This is one of those movies. And I’m not going to waste much time reviewing it. So you don’t have to waste much time reading the review.
Happy Saturday! I am (hopefully) going to have a very productive day today. If not, I will just sit here replying to comments with lightening speed instead.
This is a new thing, a kind of tweetalong/rerun/discussion thing. I am going to repost the review, the index of scene by scenes, and a couple new discussion posts. And I am also going to watch it and tweet along on Sunday afternoon if anyone wants to join in. Tweetalong Starting at 2pm Chicago Time on 11/4, which is 3pm East Coast time, and 11am West Coast time. And noon mountain, but I’m not sure I actually have any readers who are mountain time? And other times in other places, but I will let you figure that out for yourself, international time zones are too confusing
Today is Intersex Awareness Day! Who knew? Which is sort of related to this post, in that it is a reminder that gender is a construct, not a biological fact. And therefore Shahrukh Khan, a man, can also have feminine aspects. And those aspects can be a blessing and a wonderful thing to be celebrated.
