Discussion Post: Inside Insiders, Versus Outside Insiders, Versus Outside Outsiders, or Ranbir Versus Ranveer Versus Ayushmann

Thank you FilmiKudhi for the idea! I suspect/hope this will turn into a heated discussion simply because when we have had similar debates in the comments, it has always gotten heated. So, prepare to battle!

What Do You Want For Christmas From DCIB? Post Suggestions/Requests For the Next Few Weeks!

Well, it has begun, the Dark Times. As everyone flutters about doing things in the meat world with family and friends and so on over the holidays, poor me in the digital world is left behind, forgotten. Which can also be seen as an opportunity for really weird posts no one else will care about.

Discussion Post: Which of These Onscreen Couples Had Sex and Which Remained Chaste?

It’s really not an important question, I am aware. But then, that’s what makes it so fun to discuss! Also, it’s so overcast here today that it legitimately does not look like the sub has come up. I need something dumb and frivolous to talk about!

2010 Discussion Post: My Name is Khan, What Made You Ugly Cry and What Made You Giggle?

Such an odd movie. I’ve yet to show it to someone who didn’t end up a sobbing broken mess by the end. Or to someone who didn’t giggle a bit at a scene here or there. The odd thing is, the “sobbing broken” moments and the “giggle” moments seem slightly different for each person.

Happy Juhi Week! Every Film Where You Would Have Made a Better Lead Actress

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.

Pick a Plot! Three Same-Sex Family Story American Classics You Should All Watch, and Consider the Remakes

Silly post, but I’m running late this morning and I just wanted to throw up something silly. Mostly this is a recommendation post for three really great American family films that happen to revolve around homosexuality. One of my earliest memories is my mother and the video store clerk bonding over how ridiculous it is that The Birdcage is rated “R” since it is one of the most loving and warm family films to ever come out of Hollywood. Along with The Birdcage, you should also watch Kissing Jessica Stein and In and Out because they are all wonderful and loving and warm family movies. And then we can all recast them for India.

Discussion Question: What Indian Actors/Actresses Have Gotten More Attractive With Age? Ajay Devgan, Dimple Kapadia, Who Else?

You should all be very proud of me, I managed to finish my library book on kindle before midnight tonight when the library will magically take it away. And now it is too late for me to think through a serious “real’ blog post, so you will have to be happy with a non-real one.

Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: In What Movie Was He the Best Husband/Boyfriend/Partner? In Which the Worst?

You ready to make an objective judgement? We already had the “which Shahrukh do you want to marry” question a while back (which descended in to anarchy once the element of money/house was added, we all want the Goa house). No, this is purely objectively looking at his behavior as a life partner, in which film is he the BEST life partner?

Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: Why Has He Gotten Sexier as He Has Gotten Older?

You ready to put on your thinking caps? This is a question that has puzzled the global community for years, but I have faith in the power of crowdsourcing, I believe our team of experts can answer this underlying Question of the Universe. Just like genome code mapping.
