Happy Wednesday! I finish work today, then I finish work tomorrow, then I host a movie night, then I do half a days work on Friday, then I fly out to visit my sister and hold a crying baby for three days.
Reading: Anonymous sent me a link to this Deadline article. I am always nervous about these kinds of stories that haven’t been officially announced yet, but I will put up the link anyway for y’all to talk about. From my perspective, I am mostly interested/dubious in this whole idea of the same series but different partly in different languages. Kind of insulting, can’t people just read subtitles? Or can’t Amazon just spend more money and make unrelated series for different languages? Or, best of all, can’t Amazon just dub Made in Heaven and let more people discover what is truly the BEST streaming series I have ever seen? https://deadline.com/2020/01/priyanka-chopra-jonas-richard-madden-to-star-in-citadel-amazons-russo-brothers-international-event-series-1202830243/amp/
Watching: I am hosting a movie night tomorrow! So excited. It will be maybe two old friends, one of whom has seen everything up to 2017 and nothing after, and the other who has seen most things up to the present day. Plus one new person who has seen Jodha-Akbar and Happy New Year and nothing else. Suggestions? I was leaning maybe Dangal, or maybe Bahubali, or maybe War. Not JHMS, too risky for this mixed of a group. But Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga might be another interesting option?
Thinking: Anonymous also gave links to these two new Alia posters for the “gangster madam” Bhansali movie. What do we think?
Listening: Listing out Salman’s “best of the decade” movies reminded me how much I love this song. Such a sweet parent-child love song, “you are the beat, I am the heart”.
Now, question for you! Before I shut down my “best of 2019” and “best of the decade” series, is there any other topic you think I should throw in there?
