Upcoming Film Reviews: 2010 Week! The Classics and the Forgotten, All My Favorites

I guess there was a thing on twitter about best films of the past decade? And Film Companion did a thing about it too (no doubt Rahul Desai wrote something stupid). Anyway, I started to try to do that and got bogged down in 2010 alone and decided to stop there.

Monthly Donation Reminder Post, Because I Just Ran Out of Money

I skipped reminding you for two months, and then last month I got an alert that my DCIB account was overdrawn $60, so I am reminding you all again so I don’t get in trouble for paying for things with money I no longer have.

Housefull 4 Review (SPOILERS): Everything Gets Better Once Rana Duggabatti Shows Up!

Yes, this silly silly movie that released weeks ago is getting the full no spoiler/spoiler review treatment from me. Whatever, I had fun with it! And you can watch it if you want once it hits streaming and then come back and read these reviews.

TGIF: Pick Your Favorite Juhi Chawla Anarkali!

Hey, a real TGIF! In honor of Juhi week, lets look at lots and lots of pictures.

Happy Juhi Week! Every Film Where You Would Have Made a Better Lead Actress

This is a silly silly post. But it’s cold, and work is INSANE today. Let’s talk about all the movies where we really wish Juhi could have been the lead actress instead of the lead actress we actually got. Or at least would enjoy seeing her version as an alternative.

Happy Juhi Day! Aaina, Where She Once Again Steals a Man from Amrita Singh

It makes no sense!  I can barely get over the idea that Amrita Singh and Juhi Chawla would be fighting over Jackie Shroff (Even I have to admit that he does look good in a mustache), but why would Jackie Shroff ever be interested in Amrita Singh if he could get Juhi Chawla?  She is so clearly superior!

Happy Juhi Day! Phir Bhi Dil Hai Hindustani, Her Happily Cynical Take on Media

Thank goodness for Juhi Day. Through a random combination of sickness and family emergencies and conferences, my office is half-staffed today and I get to spend the day being yelled at over the phone because the person they need is not available. But Juhi always cheers me up!
