Tuesday Tamil: Thuppakki, I Finally “Get” Vijay!!!!

I am finally on schedule again!  Ha-Ha!!!!  And if I manage to watch and write over the Thanksgiving break (along with re-organizing my kitchen), I might actually get ahead!  I could start 2018 with all my decks clear, fully blog-ready!  Or I will get super behind and put up a bunch of reposted posts and almost forget Salman’s birthday again.  Oh well, it’s his own fault for being born the day after Christmas.

Silly Sunday: Ghost Stories! Late Halloween Present For Us

No Shahrukh, so sad!  But I can do my belated Halloween post with ghosts!  Nice ghosts, because I don’t like scary ones.

Silly Sunday Post: Wholesome! Family Film Options

It has come up every once in awhile that there aren’t as many really family type films as their used to be.  And it has also come up that the past few Sundays have been extremely sexy.  So, no sex!  Just fun family times this week!  Which probably means my view count will suffer, but oh well. (if you want sex, you can check out last week’s post)

Silly Sunday Post: Akshay Finally Gets the Girl, Mrs. Robinson in India, 101 Dalmations Men’s Chest Hair

3 random disconnected posts, one that is just to assuage my guilt for always being mean to Akshay, the other that came up in the comments from Karthik (congrats Karthik!  Your first fanfic suggestion!), and the 3rd was something I said as a joke in the TGIF post but now I kind of want to do it for real.

TGIF: By Popular Request, Manly Men With Chest Hair

See?  I listen!  You have a lengthy argument about the olden days when men were men and chests were chests, and I provide you with images!  I considered a fanfic, but I can’t come up with a plot that revolves around chest hair (something 101 Dalmatians inspired about fur coats?).  I’m sorry!  Even my imagination has limits.

Sexy Video Post, Just ‘Cause (Male and Female Gazes Welcome)

I just spent 4 hours straight on work phone calls, I am tired, I don’t want to write a think-y post, I just want to be happy and indulgent!  If you are in a similar state, I am here for you with sexy videos.

Happy Birthday Akshay! 50 Years Old and Still Looking GOOD!

50 years old today!  Making him the middle child of the old school 90s stars.  Younger than the Khan “triplets”, but older than Ajay.  Anyway, Akshay is so big, he definitely deserves a full list of reasons, one for every year.  And he is so old, that I am going to have to split those reasons in half!  So, here are the first 25, right after midnight Chicago time. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)

Toilet Ek Prem Katha Review (SPOILERS): Ignores the Obvious Villain

Well, I’ve been putting this off, because I didn’t have much to say.  And also because a got a nice string of abuse on my no-spoilers review.  Which is why I am a little mad at this movie.  Because it’s leaving me open for abuse!  Being so political that I can’t avoid commenting on the politics, even though I want to run a nice film analysis blog that only deals with social issues in generalities, not specifics.  And clearly it is political, because there are angry people looking for me to say bad things about it.  Oh well, I’ll spoil it for you all anyway, and maybe someone will leave a nice comment on this one.

Toilet: Ek Prem Katha Review (NO SPOILERS): Loses Its Way When it Loses the Romance

Well, that was an interesting movie going experience!  One half a charming unusual love story, one half a massive Modi propaganda movie.  And then a hidden third half in a parallel dimension that is what the movie really wanted to be about and couldn’t.  The movie I thought the trailer was promising us.

Happy Raksha Bandhan!

Happy Raksha Bandhan!  A holiday I don’t get to celebrate at all, because there are no brothers in my family.  Yes, even if I count cousins.  All girls, all the time, both mother and father’s side of the family.  But, at least I can watch movies and pretend this is what it would be like if I had a brother or a cousin-brother. (this is an updated and reposted post from last year)

(as always, if you have a favorite video for the holiday, let me know in the comments!)

TGIF: Jagga Jasoos Themed! Men in Sweater Vests

Now, if I am following this correctly, the thinking goes “men wear sweater vests in mountains-many children’s boarding schools are in mountains because it is supposed to be healthier-young men in sweater vests makes us think they are teenagers”.  But the way in which these sweater vests come across can vary greatly image to image.

TGIF: Let’s Not Overthink this-SUNGLASSES!

Happy Friday!  It was pouring rain this morning, and now it is blazing sunshine.  Which is making me think, “Sunglasses!”  It’s not the most original photo series idea, but it is always good.  Because sunglasses obscure your eyes, which make you look more otherworldly and better than us mortals.  Also, easier to see you as just manmeat, and not a person!

Naam Shabana Review (SPOILERS): Maximum Events to Hide Minimum Plot

I already put up my NO SPOILERS review, and my podcast, now it’s time for the SPOILER review.  I recommend reading this before listening to the podcast, since the podcast assumes that you already know what happens in the movie.

TGIF: Let’s End the Year With Movie Stars! Movie Stars and Puppies!

When I was putting together the post for last Friday, I ran across a photo of Salman with a puppy.  Which lead me down a bit of a movie-stars-and-puppies rabbit hole.  And what a lovely way to enter the New Years weekend, with a bunch of movie star and puppy photos!
