Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me As Chicago Recovers From a Massive Storm?

Happy Monday! It rained and rained and RAINED yesterday. My yard got nice and wet, and my new rain barrel got nice and full. Also, a tree went down and knocked into a neighbor’s house, but hey, it’s not my house! So that’s fine.

Brahmastra Review (SPOILERS): This is What Happens When a Narcissist Makes a SuperHero Movie

Ugh, I did not like this movie. I did not like it so much that I couldn’t sleep last night. So I am writing this review on very little sleep, therefore very grumpy, and hating it even more than my last review when I compared it to vomit. What a fun read this will be for all of you!

Brahmastra Review (No SPOILERS): Shahrukh Cameo, But Otherwise VOMIT

I don’t even care about spoiling the SRK cameo. It’s the main reason most of you would want to watch it, and I wouldn’t be giving you necessary info without acknowledging that.

I listened to the most FASCINATING podcast, which is directly related to our blog topics which makes it even better. It’s about scam phone calls coming out of Bombay, hitting America targeting NRIs, and the money being processed by non-English speaking desperate recent NRIs driving around the American midwest. We know these people! Like, on film and also in real life!

Darlings Review (No Spoilers): Great Shefali/Alia Performances, Overall Very Much a First Film

I finally watched it! And I am NOT going to tell y’all to watch it. Just because it deals with spousal abuse for large parts of the film and it’s frankly hard to watch. But if that doesn’t bother you (or if you are okay fastforwarding), it also has a kick of two central performances.
