Brahmastra Review (SPOILERS): This is What Happens When a Narcissist Makes a SuperHero Movie

Ugh, I did not like this movie. I did not like it so much that I couldn’t sleep last night. So I am writing this review on very little sleep, therefore very grumpy, and hating it even more than my last review when I compared it to vomit. What a fun read this will be for all of you!

Brahmastra Review (No SPOILERS): Shahrukh Cameo, But Otherwise VOMIT

I don’t even care about spoiling the SRK cameo. It’s the main reason most of you would want to watch it, and I wouldn’t be giving you necessary info without acknowledging that. But otherwise, a disgusting bowl of undercooked reheated greasy microwave pizza with phoney “masala” sauce that was eaten and then thrown up in a big brown pile with chunks on the sidewalk by a drunk hipster who was yelling at his girlfriend at 3am while you are trying to sleep. Did that description make you feel a little nauseated and unhappy? WELCOME TO MY WORLD! Midnight, I just got home, and I feel too sick to sleep.

Darlings Review (No Spoilers): Great Shefali/Alia Performances, Overall Very Much a First Film

I finally watched it! And I am NOT going to tell y’all to watch it. Just because it deals with spousal abuse for large parts of the film and it’s frankly hard to watch. But if that doesn’t bother you (or if you are okay fastforwarding), it also has a kick of two central performances.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me as I Travel???

Happy Monday! This post comes to you from the Halifax airport! We take a flight from here to Toronto and then Toronto to Chicago, and then I am finally home with Albie Dog by about 5pm Chicago time. Everything would be working perfectly except that my headphones broke so I have to hold the right ear in place with my hand. This is a bit of a problem because the headphones are both my preferred method of airplane entertainment and (way more important) the best solution for MASSIVE PRESSURE CHANGE EAR PAIN. So, I will just have to hold them on my head really tight with both hands and then it will be fine. Yes, I already checked, the airport stores are sold out.

Silly Sunday: Never Been Kissed Remake, Why Is This Not Already a Thing?

So I am listening to my crime podcasts, and I just hit two in a row where an older man grooms a teenage girl, which is CREEPY and WRONG. And it made me remember the one time rom-com makers successfully made it NOT creepy, and then think “why has this not been an Indian movie?”

Sadak 2 Review (SPOILERS): Trust No Authority

Well, this is a movie that is very angry at authority figures! I can get behind that. The specifics of the message are maybe a little out of date, the GodMan is no longer as powerful in India as GodMob, but the general idea that blind trust in what you are told is bad, that’s a timeless message.

Sadak 2 Review (NO SPOILERS): Alia and Sanjay and Mahesh, Magic Together

Well, this was simultaneously better and worse than I expected! Mahesh’s directing and Sanjay and Alia’s chemistry together was far better than I hoped. And the anti-establishment message was a delight (I totally hit the nail on the head with my OSHO guess, by the way. Go me!). But the script as a whole just wasn’t quite good enough.
