Huh. Interesting idea at the center of this, which somehow completely failed to pay off. Oh well, sometimes these movies can be more fun to talk about than to watch.Continue reading
I did it! I watched the first digital premiere major movie! And I really wish I had seen it in theaters so Dina and I could have whispered to each other jokes about how bad it was the whole time. Not a movie that really makes you happy and entertained and happy when watched by yourself streaming. More one that makes you keep checking the clock and waiting for something to HAPPEN.Continue reading
Two videos that we should look at both for content, and context. Since they are both “disrupting” the industry.Continue reading
Such an interesting heroine in this movie! She is “bad”, but she doesn’t want to be. She wishes she was less outspoken, less strange, and could find someone who loves her.Continue reading
Either response is acceptable, I think it probably depends on how emotional you are feeling today. I just find it interesting to think about because I think the filmmakers were going for laughs, but have a respectful awareness that the topic may make some people cry.Continue reading
Happy Friday! Fair warning, I watched this movie late last night as I was coming down with a mild cold. So I may not have processed everything fully, or correctly. Fix my mistakes in the comments! And forgive my wandering thoughts!Continue reading
I started out with 8 news stories, and then I actually read them, and they all turned out to be bland and blah. Even these aren’t super exciting, but if PR departments care enough to float stories and watch the response, the least we can do is respond.Continue reading
Happy Monday! Tonight I get to watch Student of the Year 2 again with my friend who loves Tiger. It shouldn’t be too torturous, I don’t love Tiger but I do kind of love Student of the Year 2.Continue reading
Those aitches are going to kill me in Chhichhore, I will never be able to spell it correctly. On the other hand, Dream Girl is a breeze! Purely for my spelling abilities, I wish all movies had English titles.Continue reading
I saw it! To celebrate the 4th of July! And it was quite quite good, in multiple ways. I encourage you to see it if you are a) interested in film narrative techniques or b) interested in confronting social issues. Don’t see it if you are a) interested in love stories or b) spend your entire life dealing with social issues and go to the movies to escape.Continue reading
Watched another early morning classic noir, a jail break movie. But what intrigued me for an Indian remake is that it managed to come up with the most shocking possible plot and I kind of want to see someone remake it just to watch everyone Lose Their Freakin’ Minds. And I also watched an early morning classic family film which would be perfect if Shahrukh wanted to play a befuddled father. Or Anil. Or Aamir. Whoever.Continue reading
The sleeper hit of 2017, that would have been a straight up hit-hit in 2018. Great cast, great script, good songs but they were cut down too much.Continue reading
What I lovely movie! Just delightful. And no knowledge of the plot can really “spoil” it (although if you definitely don’t want spoilers, you can read my other review). So I am going to encourage you to see it in theaters if at all possible, and if not read this review and plan to catch it streaming or otherwise.
What a wonderful movie! It’s just so full of love and goodness and it makes you feel full of love and goodness while you watch it. Takes a silly small premise and turns it into something beautiful.
Fun movie! Surprisingly fun movie, especially after all the misery that was Badlapur. We are back to the lighthearted Johnny Gaddar version of Sriram Raghavan. Definitely recommend it if you want something fun with a great cast.
This is partly based on a joking back and forth I had with my friend, partly based on a news story Asmita linked to in the comments, and partly based on everyone’s least favorite “actress”, Shraddha Kapoor.
I’m going to try to be better about putting out news posts for these smaller stories just so you can discuss them. Although also, REMINDER, you can always mention these stories or post links to them in the Wednesday Watching post. That’s what it is there for! Even if it’s not Wednesday. Just like you can always ask me any questions on Monday Morning Questions, even if it’s not Monday.
A year ago there was no post for Ayushmann, because I hadn’t even seen one of his movies. And them, in just the past month, I saw two in theaters and I loved them both. So now he gets a post!
I already put up my no spoilers review, I encourage you to read that one, because this is a really sweet movie that deserves to be seen and not spoiled. On the other hand, we do mostly know the plot just from the trailer, so I guess in this case spoilers aren’t THAT bad. It’s not what happens, it’s how it happens.
What a sweet sweet movie! That’s the “twist” they don’t show you in the trailer, it is much sweeter than it sounds. Very barfi like (the sweet, not the other movie of the same name).
