This movie discussion should be a fascinating comparison with my re-review of KANK from yesterday. Both films are about married couples struggling with the distance between who they are as people, and what they feel their married roles should be. Only in this movie, our husband and wife really truly love each other, so they are able to fight their way back together, even when he fails as a provider and she fails as a mother/homemaker.Continue reading
A vital question for our time. I was going to do a general “hottest sex scene in films where they had sex” ranking post, but the list got too long, so I am breaking it down by actor.Continue reading
For a man who didn’t even kiss onscreen until a few years ago, he is really good at doing the sex eyes!Continue reading
Oh boy, my Chalte Chalte review AGAIN. I forgot, I just posted it two months ago. Oh well, we all like this movie, right? Surely we can find new things to say.Continue reading
This is a silly silly post. But it’s cold, and work is INSANE today. Let’s talk about all the movies where we really wish Juhi could have been the lead actress instead of the lead actress we actually got. Or at least would enjoy seeing her version as an alternative.Continue reading
Huh, I forgot I did Paheli just last week. So we are having a little string of Rani-Shahrukh movie reviews.Continue reading
Thanks for the suggestion Emily! Shahrukh (as most celebrities/actors do) has used his real life trauma to support his performances and promote his films. Which also means we can easily find 8 movies to watch if you want to get a sense of the emotional journey of the “real” SRK!Continue reading
Finally an SRK film! And also an older film, meaning before the past 10 years. Somehow I started off with a bunch of new stuff.Continue reading
Time for a Netflix update! Which I only do once a month or so, so it’s not up to the minute accurate. But hopefully I make up for that with the descriptions I give them. (Accessbollywood.net does the real work of keeping this list updated, you should definitely absolutely subscribe to them for your day to day updates.)
Never actually met Aunt Bernice, she was my great-great-aunt, but every summer solstice my grandmother would mention that it was also Aunt Bernice’s birthday and now that is burned into my brain, the two go together. Pagan earth based sun rituals, and a spinster who worked for a mail order catalog company for 40 years.
I’m excited! Lots of fun options here! Not just epilogues and alternative endings, but straight up separate movie plots following up on the same characters.
I was tempted to do one long post for one of these, but that would break the list pattern. Plus, be harder to write. So some will be longer, some will be shorter, but there will be a full 25. And that will give you all a lot to talk about in the comments.
Is that a controversial statement? Not the birthday part (can’t really deny that), but the best SRK-Rani part? I don’t think so, they’ve worked together a lot, but they haven’t actually been the main “jodi” in most of their films. It’s really just this one and Paheli and Kabhi Alveda Na Kehna. So, okay, you can fight with me over whether this is a better movie or Paheli or Kabhi Alveda Na Kehna.
I wanted to do a songs post, because this week is wearing me out and I don’t have the energy for a “real” post. And also because it was Mardi Gras yesterday and I have a great Mardi Gras song. But I couldn’t think of any other Mardi Gras songs, so instead of doing that theme, I came up with another.
