Fake Indian History in 11 Fake Films

Ah history! Always fake on film (because you can’t convey real life on film), but sometimes more obviously fake. I like the obvious fakes.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me This Very Very Busy Movie Week?

Well, showtimes are a disaster! The only War showtime I can make on Wednesday is at 8pm. Which would be less bad if I could squeeze in Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy in an earlier show, but no luck for that either. So it looks like it will be a 1am night two nights in a row. Gah. Or, I put Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy off for Friday afternoon just so I’m not quite so pie-eyed.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Same-Sex Romances, Antonio Banderas and Shahrukh, SOTY as It Should Have Been

Do we keep coming up with same-sex romances because they are sexy, or because it is a gap that can only be filled by fanfic and not reality? Or both? Anyway, here are two more of those thingies.

Friday Classics: Ta Ra Rum Pum is the Source of All Darkness in the World

I think this is the movie I hate most. More than Bharat Ane Nenu, more than Bhansali’s Devdas, even more than Padmavat. And more than I hate the entity which is Rahul Desai. This movie is the source of everything that is wrong on earth condensed into one cotton candy colored pile of goo powered by toxic excrement of Disney films with Rani’s eyes and Saif’s energy. And yet, I love the soundtrack.

TGIF: As the Weather Turns Colder, Which of These is the COLDEST Moments? And, Bonus, Which is Hottest?

Yes, I am still doing temperature gifs. So sue me, they are fun and I’m just now coming out the otherside of my cold. Nice thing is, I made one of my co-workers sick so I got to see it from the outside and OH MY GOSH. She is like death warmed over, and she is 7 years younger than me. I sent her home after she had to curl up and sleep on the chair in my office for a bit. So, I wasn’t being a malingerer, this cold is legitimately deadly. And that is enough reason for me to keep doing silly posts.

Songs For When You Are High

Oh wow I feel weird. I almost fainted at work and decided to come home. I was so far out of it that it took me a few hours to realize I was getting a super strange migraine. My head doesn’t hurt, but I keep seeing monsters in my room and the colors and shapes are all wrong looking and I’m walking into walls. Which, I understand, is sort what happens when you take intoxicating substances. Which I never do, because my migraines are so exciting, why should I look for excitement anywhere else?

My Sick Day Viewing, Fascinating True Story With Anupam Kher Playing a Role-BBC Miniseries Mrs. Wilson

This is amazing! Ruth Wilson playing her own grandmother in the story of her grandfather who was both a scoundrel and a brilliant actor, probably where Ruth got it. Anyway, I have to share the story in case you don’t want to watch it and also because it is so fun to imaginary recast in India. And also my brain isn’t working because Sick, and recasting is easy. Also, SPOILERS! Avoid if you like limited BBC historical miniserieses midcentury true stories/Ruth Wilson
