Ajnabee Review: Only Trust Jonny Lever!!!!
Okay, I am going to TRY to find a “larger theme” here, but I really doubt I will. But maybe! Fingers crossed! It can’t just be about neon clothes and lipliner.Continue reading

Happy Wednesday! It is completely overcast and dreary here and I just had a massive horrible car thing that I will explain in the “thinking” section. Why are Wednesdays so difficult?Continue reading
In Honor of the 3rd Anniversary of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha: Which of These Movies Would You Erase From Existence If You Could?
I’m not gonna deal with the bigger “message” part of the films, just the minor irritation of all the horrible parts of watching them. Oh, or movies that DCIB would never really love or pay attention to (Manikarnia who?). But of the movies that in theory we might have enjoyed, and which we saw or at least saw the trailers, which of these is worst?Continue reading
Happy Birthday Dimple! Your Family Saga, Part 2, Appearance of Akshay
Part 1 was all Dimple, and her love story with Rajesh and so on. This brings in the next generation, but I think that is fair, you can’t really understand or appreciate Dimple without understanding her daughter.Continue reading
TGIF: Most Distracting Possible Topic! Bulge Pictures
I am pulling the “only open in case of emergency stress levels” cord! Yes, I am doing a TGIF which will allow us all to study famous men’s pants in a certain way. Luckily, many of us are currently working from home, so I don’t even have to give a NSFW warning!Continue reading
All of Akshay’s Bad Woman Movies! I Fixed Them!
On my post about “thinks we would wish for from a genie”, Akshay’s retirement is the winner right now. But I don’t just want him to retire, I want him to redo his recent woman movies RIGHT. And now I shall tell him what he should do.Continue reading
Worst Akshay Kumar Film of the Decade, Vote Here!
I was going to do “worst Akshay film of 2019”, but that loses so many great contestants like Toilet and Padman and Housefull 3. So I’m opening it up to the whole decade!Continue reading
Mini FanFic Post: Pick an Ending for the Kareena-Deepika-Akshay Baby Movie!
I wrote this FanFic on Sunday but just kind of sketched in the outline. And then we talked and came up with multiple variations on the story.Continue reading
Silly Sunday: Dark Reunion for Rani and Shahrukh, Charlie’s Angels in India, and Akshay Gets His Come-Uppance
Random mixture of ideas today, I know most people don’t read these, but for those few of you who enjoy them these thoughts were too good to resist. Especially a movie where Akshay gets what’s coming to him. You can skip to the end if you just want to read that oneContinue reading
Good Newwz Review (SPOILERS): Good Newwz is Bad News
If you are kind of interested in this movie and want to see how the plot plays out, read the No Spoiler review. If you just can’t get past the Akshay of it all, you can read this review instead.Continue reading
Good Newwz Review (No Spoilers): Major Plot Problem, Why Would Kareena Want Akshay’s Baby?
I saw it! I do NOT recommend it! Once again, Akshay managed to somehow suck all the goodness from a film.Continue reading
Good Newwz (zzzzzzzzzzzzzz) Trailer! I’m Not Thrilled
Well, this is a disappointment! Not based on the poster, it’s perfectly in line with what I expected from that, but based on the initially casting and topic announcement I had higher hopes. Oh well, all of life is just a series of disappointments (it’s overcast today and I haven’t had my coffee yet).Continue reading
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. Or if you already caught it in theaters, read this review to talk about your response to the complexities of the narrative.Continue reading
Housefull 4 Review (No Spoilers): Clever Meta Commentary on Historical Fiction, and Also Dumb Sex Jokes
This is exactly what I want from a Housefull movie. No surprises, nothing unexpected, and Akshay Kumar is continually humiliated and tortured.Continue reading
Why Does Akshay Look Weird in This Video? And I Have a Better Way to Use the Feather Theme for Aamir!!!
I’m having a silly silly day. It’s overcast again, which makes me depressed and weird, plus I didn’t get any sleep, plus the people of the world just insist on doing silly things today! It’s not my fault, the celebrities are making me do this!Continue reading
Trailers! Sid is Angry, Akshay is Funny, I Am Moderately Optimistic

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 WilsonContinue reading
Shahrukh Summer/Silly Sunday: A Movie For Nisha/Karisma in Dil To Pagal Hai
Poor Nisha/Karisma! So much more interesting than “just” a third leg of a triangle should be. She deserves a happy ending, right?Continue reading
Magical Thinking Post: Let Us All Combine Our Powers For These Very Small Wishes
I am a deep believer in the “God has a plan” theory and also the “Butterfly effect” theory. Meaning that I don’t like to make big wishes for fear they will come true and somehow mess with The Universe. But I think the following small wishes should be safe and not permenantly damage anything. Join me in combining our powers to Make Them So!Continue reading
Mission Mangal Review (SPOILERS): A Movie Too Dumb To Know It is Dumb
