TGIW: Ready for a Silly Post? With Shahrukh, Food, and Photos?

I’m having an out of sorts day, mostly because I was up way too late last night (Hamilton).  So I feel like something cheerful and silly.  And I am dragging you all along with me!  Oh, and fair warning, when I get sleepy I get MEAN.  Or rather, I am always secretly this mean, my filter just doesn’t work as well when I get tired.  So be prepared for some not very nice comments about famous people.

Silly Sunday 2: Sci-Fi Film Remakes, The Fifth Element to Martian Chronicles, Shahrukh to Dhanush

More suggestions from you!  Suggestions that also turned into reading recommendations for me, fun fun!  Oh, and plot ideas for movies I really want to see made, whether the stories are translated out of the sci-fi realm or not.

Silly Sunday: Couples We Want to See, Varun-Parineeti to Arjun-Anushka to Swara-Ajay to Varun-Bhumi to Alia-Ayushmann

These are really stories you wrote yourself.  Or at least started yourself, on the Wednesday post I had a wonderful time coming up with ideas based on the casts you wanted to see. These are those same ideas, just brushed up and expanded a little bit.

Silly Sunday: Father’s Day! Father Plots For Everyone, Pick Your Favorite

Happy Father’s Day!  This is a repost from last year, but it is very long and worth rereading.  And also very very good, I forgot how good this one was!  There’s Rana and Shahrukh fighting in wet shirts, Ranbir and Sonakshi falling in love, Varun Dhawan and a baby, all kinds of good things.  Also, it’s a Father’s Day Multiverse and all the stories are connected.  And anyway, I am spending 6 hours at church today (service plus organizing coffee hour plus meeting), so I earned a rerun.

Silly Sunday: Female Friendship Vengeance Story, Inspired by Alia and Ranbir and Kat

Happy Sunday!  I wrote soooooooooooooooo much yesterday, and like good high quality stuff, reviews of Bhavesh Joshi and Veere Di Wedding.  So this morning, I get to write short total trash, in a nice change of pace.  Let’s pretend the world is a bad romance novel of the Judith Kranz type and rewrite reality!

Box Office: Raazi Rides Again! And 102 STILL Not Out

This is a good week!  Recent release doing very well in the second week, older release surprisingly still holding steady, and an assortment of other not so good movies still feeling in some of the screens. (as always, figures courtesy of renttrack by way of bollywoodhungama)

Box Office Report: Raazi and Mahanati Prove Women Are Better Than Men

I was going to come up with something clever, but now, simple is best.  Every male star in every industry is struggling to make a decent box office, and Alia and the Savatri biopic sweep in and break records without breaking a sweat. (as always, figures from renttrack by way of bollywoodhungama)

Raazi Review (SPOILERS): Patriotism Which Kills the Host

This is an actual excellent film, and a very fun watch.  It doesn’t really matter if you know what happens, you can still enjoy watching it play out, but if you like being surprised and having edge of your seat thrills, maybe wait and read the No Spoilers review first, and then this one after you have seen the movie.

Sonam Wedding Epilogue! Start Your ‘Ships!

I can’t stop myself!  I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos!  And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for.  And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.

Hindi Film 101: Nepotism, the Problem of the 3rd Film

Moimeme asked me about Ranbir Kapoor and why he is still getting work, and some one else asked me what I thought about Pratalekha’s recent interview and how she struggles to get work.  And then October came out promoted on Varun Dhawan’s name primarily, and flopped.  And I think I figured out what the issue is, it is the problem of the 3rd film.

Raazi Trailer! What Do We All Think?

Well, this is a fascinating trailer!  2018 continues to look like a much better year for films than 2017.  The old dinosaurs, Stars and Directors, are stepping back and new faces are getting a chance to shine.  This film is a perfect match of a new actor and a new creative team behind her.  Which came together to create a new story.

This was fun, I didn’t have to write anything this week!  We wrote it all together on Monday in bits and pieces, I just had to pull it together and make sense of it for this.
