Friday Classics: Raajneeti, I Cared Too Much About Some Characters and Too Little About Others

An experiment!  We all watched the same movie, and now I have to review it.  Which is A LOT of pressure on me, since for once you have all seen the movie as recently as me and probably understood it better.  Oh well, you can think of this as a starting point for a discussion, not the end.

Friday Not-So-Classic: Elaan, Because I Am Feeling John Abraham

The beauty of this movie, is that I can write about it very quickly.  Because it is not worth a lot of words.  The other beauty of this movie, is that 2 of the most attractive men in Indian film are in it, and also Rahul Khanna.  And the third beauty of this movie is that it is smart enough to know how dumb it is. The best kind of dumb movie.  And anyway, I have a semi-tradition of writing about bad movies on Friday the 13th.

Silly Sunday: Happy Pride (Repost)! Many Many FanFics, Including Shahrukh/Arjun and Rani/Vidya

You understand that I mean “gay” as a genre, not an insult, right?  Kind of horrible that I have to make that clarification.  There used to be a movie store in the gay neighborhood of my city that had a series of shelves called “Neighborhood Favorites”.  Which was their little pseudonym for movies with same sex romantic plot lines.  So maybe I should say that instead, all the Khans, plus Amitabh, should be in “neighborhood favorite” movies.

Silly Sunday: Mini-plots, pick one! Everything from Arjun-Hrithik Rom-Com to Naked SRK

Happy Father’s Day!  I already reposted last year’s post, which was hideously in depth.  And today I am busy giving the church service AND organizing food for coffee hour AND spending time with Dad and Grandpa.  So for new content, one line plot ideas.  Vote for your favorite!  Maybe I will write the whole thing next week.

Let’s Make a Match! Arjuns Edition (with bonus Hrithik)

Sorry to those of you who like deep thoughtful posts, my brain is fried and I have no thoughtfulness available too me.  Also, I have to write a church service.  Also do laundry.  It’s a busy week, no time for thought today!  So, join me in total superficiality!

TGIF: Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Something I am Very Thankful for, Men in Blue Jeans!

I was all nice and daughterly and granddaughterly yesterday, now it’s time to be completely inappropriate and put up my TGIF post!  And as a special treat, I am posting it early in the day.  It should still keep you entertained all day, since I think this is my longest TGIF post ever.  And it also includes a complex and objective rating system, that you can feel free to disagree with, modify, or use for your own ratings in the comments

Happy 22 Days to SRK’s Birthday! 22 Interesting Co-Stars

Happy Amitabh’s birthday again!  And, because it is his birthday, I thought I would do a Shahrukh birthday post that could kind of work for Amitji too.  So, co-stars!!!!  Not in order in any way, just 22 that are interesting to think about.

TGIF: Feet First! Inspired by Jab Harry Met Sejal

So, we’ve all watched “Hawaaiyan” a million times now, right?  And we’ve all gotten into the footplay thing in the middle?  Or is that just me?  In order to celebrate our new shared foot fetish, let’s look at a whole bunch of bare foot photos.

Two More Trailers! A Fun Light Rom-Com, and the Opposite!

Datablue pointed out in comments on yesterday’s trailer post that I ignored Arjun Rampal’s Daddy, once again.  And I made a mental note that the next time I had an excuse for a trailer post, I would talk about it.  And then I open up twitter, and poof!  Trailer!  So now I get to combine two very very different films in one post.

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!

Silly Sunday Speculative Post: Pride Themed! (of course) Movies for LGBTQA&H!

You understand that I mean “gay” as a genre, not an insult, right?  Kind of horrible that I have to make that clarification.  There used to be a movie store in the gay neighborhood of my city that had a series of shelves called “Neighborhood Favorites”.  Which was their little pseudonym for movies with same sex romantic plot lines.  So maybe I should say that instead, all the Khans, plus Amitabh, should be in “neighborhood favorite” movies.

Happy Pride! My Annual Slashfic celebration

Happy Pride!  For once I am NOT in charge of the service at my church, which is around the corner from the parade (our kids have a lemonade stand out front, we rake in the money), so I do not have to go down to the loud crowded hot unpleasant parade area.  Instead I get to celebrate by reposting the same fanvid post I put up last year.  Thank you slashfic fanvid makers!  You are just the best people, and on Pride Sunday, I salute you!

TGIF: For Easter, Have Some Hot Indian Jesus Pictures!

Happy Good Friday!  I am celebrating by seeing Arjit Singh live tonight (WOOT!!!!).  But I don’t want to totally ignore the massive religious celebration going on all over the world.  So, in honor of Jesus, let’s look at some hot men.  Who kind of look like Jesus (as presented in American pop culture).

Indian TV Commercials Post: Best Couples!

Understand that this is only a small subset of ads.  Since I am tragically cut off from Indian satellite television, I only know of ones that youtube randomly suggests for me, not the whole array of every ad out there.  But of the ones I have found, here are the sexiest!

Hollywood Gossip So Big I am Actually Reporting it!!!!!

I really don’t care most of the time about what happens in the American gossip news.  I mean, after getting used to the crazy rumors that fly around in the Indian film industry, all the American gossip just seems kind of bland.  But there are two stories today that are so big, I actually care about them!!!
