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).
