Greetings from My Sister’s House!

Well, here I am at my sister’s.  And I am having so much fun, I forgot to put a name in the Christmas Giveaway post until an hour after it went up (who noticed?  Be very proud of yourself if you did!).  If you are curious, here is what we have done so far.

Box Office: Bareilly Ki Barfi is Still Doing Sweet, Arjun Reddy is Astounding

Well this is an exciting box office week!  Not in Hindi film, Toilet and Jab Harry Met Sejal are declining, A Gentleman is flopping (even though it is SO GOOD!  People are stupid), Bareilly Ki Barfi is holding steady in it’s small way.  No no, it’s the southern market that is FINALLY healthy again.  Well, Telugu.  Tamil is still on life support.

A Gentleman Podcast, With Bonus Massive Argument Over Tiger Shroff

Well, we loved this movie unconditionally (almost), but still managed to get into a big fight in the middle of the podcast over whether Siddharth or Tiger Shroff is a better actor.  Don’t even know for sure how we got on that topic, but things were a bit heated for a while there.  Which I am sure will be fun to listen to!

A Gentleman Review (SPOILERS): This is a Definite “Don’t Spoil Yourself if There is Any Chance At All You Will Be Able to See This Movie” Kind of Movie.

HA!  I WAS RIGHT!!!  I rule all!!!!  I am SO HAPPY!!!!!  The twist that I hoped was the twist was the twist, not the other twist that could have been the twist.  And I’m happy not just because I am clearly a GENIUS, but because the twist I hoped was the twist is so much better than the other twist would have been. (no spoilers review here)  But you shouldn’t know what the twist is!  Because it is SO MUCH more enjoyable going in blind, and this movie is SO GOOD.  This is a definite “don’t spoil yourself if there is any chance at all you will be able to see this movie” kind of movie.

A Gentleman Review (No Spoilers): A Movie Made Just For Me

Okay, let me throw some titles out there for you: Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  Desperado. Johnny Gaddar.  Burn After Reading.  Dishoom.  Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.  Bang Bang. Get Shorty.  Jhankar Beats.  Now, are you smiling?  Are you happy?  Are you remembering good times?  Or are you rolling your eyes because these are all stupid worthless fluff films?  If you are one of the first people, this is the film for you (and also, we should be friends).  If you are one of the second people, this is not the film for you (and we can still be friends, but maybe should only watch classic movies together not new stuff) (spoilers review here)

Trailers and Songs! Baadshaho, A Gentleman, Bareilly Ki Barfi

Let’s through out a nice general discussion type post!  For those of you who aren’t interested in my scene by scene of JHMS or Monday Malayalam or Tuesday Tamil.  We can all talk about Ajay Devgn’s midlife crisis and how increasingly charming Siddharth and Kriti are looking in comparison.

Trailer Post! New Farhan Movie, And Non-SRK Songs

Trailers!  Not terribly exciting ones, but I am so desperate for content that I will take it.  And at least the Farhan one raises some interesting questions about coincidence versus copying (in other words, it has the same plot as Qaidi Band and I don’t know why).

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Song and A Gentlemen Trailer!

Shahrukh is not being very considerate to me!  I have this bonkers week (my family is staying about an hour and a half outside of the city, so I am commuting back and forth and they are keeping me up all night with family stuff and then I have to drive drive drive to work the next day), and I get up this morning thinking maybe I will have a little time to, like, brush my hair, but no!  Shahrukh has just posted a 5 minute video that I have to watch instead. Oh, and also Siddharth has a trailer, but it’s not as long and I don’t have to watch as closely.  And neither of them used subtitles, because they hate me because I am disgusting and live in a car and never wash my hair.
