I already did this for the boys, but can the girls be far behind? And yes, “girls”. Most of these actresses started out before they were 20 and in my book that means you are still a kid.Continue reading
Happy Monday! I slept and slept and lazed and lazed and I have hopes of no longer feeling low energy and sick at work.Continue reading
Shoot, I just wrote and posted Deepika’s 101 a few weeks back. And while she’s had good songs, that’s not where she shines the most so a “songs post” doesn’t really fit. But I think I can do a post talking about her best roles.Continue reading
I wrote this FanFic on Sunday but just kind of sketched in the outline. And then we talked and came up with multiple variations on the story.Continue reading
Oh Dips! I can’t be the only one who has a vaguely worried and protective feeling about her, right? She just seems to have been hit by life so many times.Continue reading
Well, this is a bad trailer! Just, as a trailer. Which is a specific kind of art form that can be done poorly or well and have no relationship to the movie it is promoting. Except for indicating the skill and understanding of the producers of the film for the product they have.Continue reading
This is an out of date post from a couple years ago, but only out of date in that the “most recent” film choices are no longer most recent. And, like, Anushka wasn’t married yet. Otherwise it is still a great post for giving you an idea of the pattern most actresses follow in their careers and how they play out.Continue reading
Part 1 didn’t get as many comments as I expected, but it did get decent views, so I am moving on!Continue reading
If I didn’t know where Imtiaz was heading, I would find this both better and worse. As in, I can watch it and see the hints of the irritating passive hero of Tamasha, but also the brilliant deep romance of Jab Harry Met Sejal. It’s an interesting one to look back on!Continue reading
No one cares about this, do they? I am just so pleased with the idea that I want to write it down before I forget.Continue reading
Have I reviewed Main Hoon Na? I can’t remember. I know I did Om Shanti Om because Farah re-tweeted my review and that was cool. And I know I HAVEN’T done this movie, because I made a mental note that I hadn’t reviewed it a few months back. Anyway, I already reviewed a fascinating groundbreaking risky sexy feminist film Paap, today I will review a big dumb fun hit film with a neutral to anti-feminist message. Let’s see which gets more attention!Continue reading
Oh boy! A review for a movie that isn’t very good, so I can write it quickly! I hope. I tend to get a bit lost and write too much even about the less good movies.Continue reading
This was one of many movies from my YRF list earlier this week that it was requested I review. I picked it because, well, I can remember it well enough to review without needing a rewatch. And it certainly doesn’t deserve a rewatch.Continue reading
Happy Saturday! We get to go to doggie training class, and I will do laundry, and other fun stuff. And also, wait to see if my eye unswells itself.Continue reading
Kangana through Rangoli just said something so shocking I have to point it out and correct it. And on the other hand, two bits of casting that make me happy, Kat and Sara both get good parts.Continue reading
So, TCM (greatest channel EVER) is in the middle of a Garbo fest and I caught a double bill on Friday and it inspired me. Get ready for very VERY specific narrowcasting fanfics. You know, for all those hardcore Garbo/Indian film fans. There must be more of them than just me and Maria Gill, right?Continue reading
Ready for a quick news post before I start the long journey towards home? Fun fun! There’s pictures!Continue reading
I promised to write this review for Valentine’s Week and then I missed it, so I am squeezing it in now instead. Oh well, I didn’t have anything else planned for today anyway.Continue reading
I always remembered this as a really good movie, but I hadn’t watched it straight through in a few years and thought maybe I was mis-remembering. No, it really is a really good movie!Continue reading
This is not nearly as fun as Sonam’s part so far. But there are a few fun videos leaking out. Okay, there are 4 videos. But they are all really fun!
I don’t know why we were/are all so obsessed with this. What did we think was going to happen? The photos would release and they would be, like, nude or in a slap fight or something?
I was going to make this a “Hindi Film 101” and then I thought “no, I don’t want to think that much or go so far in depth, I’ll just make this fun”. So, FUN!!! Be ready for that!
Ready for me to be grumpy? Sometimes I just am, I read these news stories and think “everyone is stupid and gullible!” and it bothers me.
