Just got another comment asking when I was gonna finish that. And really, the hardest part is getting the dang images. I start with about 1 image for every 5 seconds of film time, then cull it down to the best ones to talk about and do the analysis. But pulling and saving and storing 1 image for 5 seconds of film time is really really tedious and time consuming! The analysis is a piece of cake in comparison.Continue reading

Sunday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Watch My Father Stress About the Rain!
Happy Sunday! I’m up at the lake house with my parents, watching my father obsess over if/when the weather is going to be nice enough for us to take the sailboat out for the year. Right now, it is pouring rain, so NO.Continue reading
Discussion Post Courtesy of Shreyans! What Characters Would We Dislike/Like If They Were The Reverse Gender? And Which Would We Feel the Same?
Yes! We are all going to THINK! Even though it is December, and FilmiKudhi is having a baby, and Eva and I are in mourning, and just in general life is insane (Genevieve, I’m I remembering right that you are in the midst of a sweep of birthdays?), we are still going to DISCUSS and THINK and STUFF.Continue reading

90s Week of Romance: Best Hindi Love Song of the 90s, “Tujhe Dekho” or “Pehla Pehla Pyar” or “Khandala”????
A challenge!!!!! Which will be well-nigh impossible! At least, it would be for me. All 3 Khans had amazingly iconic love songs in this era, with adorable spectacular co-stars and forever hit tunes and so on and so forth. But which is BEST? And I guess also which is worst, and which is middlest.Continue reading

Quiz Time! Which Shahrukh Heroine Are You?
You ready for how rumpled I am today? I have retreated to online quizzes! I never do online quizzes. Like really, never. But something about watching a happy sitcom and methodically answering questions about myself is really nice.Continue reading
Discussion Post: What Movie/Book/TV Show Have You Gotten Absolutely Obsessed About? (yes, you can say JHMS)
I guess also music album/stage show. Anything you think about obsessively, talk about excessively, and so on and so forth, until you are over it all of a sudden and it becomes this nice nostalgic piece of your past.Continue reading
Sunday WatchAlong, DDLJ! Right Here, Starting at 10am! Woo-Hoo!
So excited for a DDLJ watchalong! I will be very superficial and dumb I suspect, far less “let’s consider the deconstruction of the typical Hindi film hero” and far more “his DIMPLES!!!!”Continue reading
Sunday Watchalong Tomorrow! DDLJ at 10am Chicago Time!!!!!
Woo-hoo! You know why I picked DDLJ? Because I can be high on pain pills and still follow it. If I am high on pain pills, don’t you want to be there to watch me say things like “hat pretty dimples cute bad Amrish Puri BAD”?Continue reading

Aditya Chopra Week! Rank Aditya’s Heroes in Terms of Originality of Character!
Albie Dog has decided his new morning routine is to have breakfast, and then pee on the floor. The first time it happened was absolutely my fault, I skipped a walk and he was desperate. But I think his doggie brain then went “hey, this is a good system, I should keep doing this”. Anyway, I had an unpleasant start to the day and now want to think about pleasant things as a distraction. So, Aditya Chopra’s Heroes!Continue reading
Aditya Chopra Week! Adi’s Men, Flawed But Not Fragile
