I posted this late Wednesday night, but it got very very few views. I am hoping that is because people just didn’t see the post, not because they hate it. I have TV again thanks to youtube, which means I am seeing Overboard on a constant repeat, the way TV tends to play it. And I am thinking, once again, how easy it would be to fix this and make it the totally perfect plot. And so long as I am doing that, why not set it in India?Continue reading
Jaya! Come back to work and make these movies! I think they would all be wonderful.Continue reading
The surprisingly large number of responses I got to my Garbo-themed remakes post inspired me to repost this. Plus Mad Miss Manton was on TCM last night. And Murder She Wrote is always in my heart. And Terry Pratchett really did write the perfect character for Shahrukh.Continue reading
If I had a time machine, I would do many important things. But after doing all of them, I would stop by Jaya in the 1970s and cast her in a movie version of Parks and Recreation.Continue reading
This is a very good, very long, silly Sunday fanfic. And it feels kind of vacation-y in tone. So it seems right for a repost while I am on vacation having fun without blogging.Continue reading
I need to write something I can stay focused on while being interrupted by phone calls every 5 minutes at work, and fanfic is where it is at. I get so sucked in so fast to my own stories that I can jump in and out a lot more easily than some stupid analytical post. Hopefully these are fun for at least some of you, since they are all just additions to movies we know. Oh, and obviously there are spoilers for the films’ real endings buried in my rewrites. Also, this is a very very long post, but you can always just read the ones where you know the original film already.Continue reading
This seems like a thing that should exist, right? Romances that revolve around all the confusion of Valentine’s Day in India. And instead of getting sucked into just one story, I am going to quickly outline 14 different stories!Continue reading
My sister and I thought of this idea while talking last night, and even though it will probably have minimal interest for anyone else, I am still writing it up.Continue reading
A ReRun for Christmas! Of my most Christmassy fanfic, the one that is actually based on the Christmas story. And it’s a really good one too.Continue reading
Procrastinatrix said she wanted a review of the totally silly Christmas play my sister and I just saw (while wearing matching Christmas sweatshirts!). It’s essentially Pride and Prejudice fanfic, but well-written fanfic. So good in fact that I kind of want to end by suggesting a minor rewrite and casting for the Indian version.Continue reading
I know India has a somewhat thriving horror business now, and horror films are definitely not my genre (I have seen three), but it’s Halloween week, so it seemed appropriate.
I’m doing it! A totally ridiculous extremely specific post for those people who live within the Venn diagram overlap of “Familiar with Malayalam Films” and also “Familiar with the Anne of Green Gables Series”. So, Angie. You better appreciate this Angie!
I wrote this Fanfic ages ago and not many people read it. But I figure if it is ever going to get any attention, Harry Potter’s birthday is the best chance.
Sorry sorry sorry! Yesterday just completely wiped me out (22 guests is too many guests, especially when one of them has severe dementia and 4 of them are small children). So I literally have not left my bed all day, and every time I try to think straight and come up with a brilliant fanfic, it all just sort of floats away from me. So I am doing a reprint and failing you, my faithful readers. Oh well, at least it is a really good reprint, based on Daboo Ratnani photos and Sanjay Dutt and his dog. Continue reading
Rainy rainy rainy here. And, I assume, rainy rainy rainy there too. So heck, I’m gonna do rain stories. And rain makes me feel arty, so they will all be reflective little art movies.
You understand that I mean “gay” as a genre, not an insult, right? Kind of horrible that I have to make that clarification. There used to be a movie store in the gay neighborhood of my city that had a series of shelves called “Neighborhood Favorites”. Which was their little pseudonym for movies with same sex romantic plot lines. So maybe I should say that instead, all the Khans, plus Amitabh, should be in “neighborhood favorite” movies.
I wrote this back when I read his autobiography, before he even had his babies. But I think that last option still works, just change it so that the babies are twins and Karan is covering up their background for their own safety by claiming they were from a surrogate.
Well, I am spending the day in bed, as promised in my post yesterday. Life is too difficult, and the world is too cold and rainy, best to stay under the blankets with Dog Hazel snoring in her big pink dog bed at my feet. And in that soothing easy mood, I will also right a soothing easy FanFic, based on the very first stories I learned and loved, fairy tales.
I figured people might be tired of Madhuri Madhuri Madhuri, and I also want to put this out in the world in hopes that Tips can do a last minute rewrite and highly improve their film.
Madhuri is wonderful and amazing, and ever since her post-children return to the industry, she isn’t getting the platforms she deserves. But I have ideas!
I was going to do a straight up fanfic, but then I realized it is more of a personal fantasy, so the best way would be to handle it more like a “Choose Your Own Adventure” type deal.
I already did a very long detailed take down of Bharat Ane Nenu this morning, including an overview of the Indian Constitution and it’s deeper social meaning, I’m exhausted, and I know at least one of you also watches both B99 and Indian film, so I am going to indulge myself with a fun easy recasting post. Plus, the news just broke that B99 was canceled, so the time is ripe for an Indian spin off.
I already put up a MASSIVE Anushka post and I didn’t want it to be too super super long, so I pulled this one story out. Also, this is the story I need the most help with because I can’t figure out how to end it.
