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
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
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
I saw it! I do NOT recommend it! Once again, Akshay managed to somehow suck all the goodness from a film.Continue reading
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
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
This is exactly what I want from a Housefull movie. No surprises, nothing unexpected, and Akshay Kumar is continually humiliated and tortured.Continue reading
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
I love the months between big holidays. Lots of weird funky little low pressure movies that are just kind of fun.Read more
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
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
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
Blech! This was such a bad film! BLECH!!!!!!!!!! I just want to vomit thinking about it. You probably shouldn’t watch it.Continue reading
I think this might have been the most unpleasant movie I have ever watched. It was like having wooden stakes driven under my nails for 20 hours. Needless to say, I do not recommend it to you. And if you read my posts regularly, you know that it is a rare thing for me not to encourage you to see a movie, so take it seriously.Continue reading
Well, we have a song that openly imitates every other club song ever, and a trailer that openly imitates every space movie ever. Hurrah for Indian ingeniuity (I’m grumpy this morning).Continue reading
It’s just SOOOOO GAY!!!! So much gayer than I remembered. Needlessly gay, it’s a fun movie even if you watch it “straight”, and then on top of the regular fun movie, they put in these ridiculous heaping helpings of gayness.Continue reading
I’ve narrowed it down to my top three, but I just can’t pick between them! They are all wonderful and I love them all in their unapologetic “the audience will never get this so we are just gonna go for it” over the top romance.Continue reading
I don’t have a super lot to say about any of these stories, but maybe you will? Anyway, they are worth repeating.Continue reading
I put these questions in the “Wednesday Watching” post earlier, but they were both really good and deserve their own post. Plus, I think people got distracted and missed them in Wednesday Watching. So a second chance!Continue reading
Happy Wednesday! Time to exchange stories and links and all that fun stuff! You amuse yourselves while I try to get ahead of postings because I have a party tonight.
This is I think the first serious review I wrote. Back when no one was reading me. So I am reposting it so you can enjoy it now. And also because it’s December and no one much is reading, so I might as well put up a review that I’ve already posted twice.
This is my favorite way to be wrong. A movie I wrote off as terrible based on the ad campaign and so on turns out to be great! Boo for my predictive abilities but YAAAY for the WORLD!!!!
Another TGIF repost!!!! And if you like this, I can keep it up for the next few days of holiday stress. There are many many TGIFs in the archives. Although you have now seen the 4 best ones over the past two days.
Yaaaay, I finally get to put up my Tashan review! And hopefully some of you either watched it this week or remember it well enough to comment anyway.
