Saturday WatchAlong: Signature Move! 8:30am Chicago Time Saturday!
I’ve decided to be totally selfish. I’ve been wanting to see Signature Move for ages, and I like watching movies on Saturday mornings. And it’s only 90 minutes, so even if no one else shows up, I will be happy talking to myself for 90 minutes (more than that and it gets weird).Continue reading

Saturday WatchAlong: Should We Watch Sanak? Or Something Rani? Or Emraan-y?
My office is short staffed this week, so I’ve been a bit work-swamped. Especially since I had to take 2 and a half hours off yesterday for stupid Albie Dog’s vet visit to confirm he just had an upset tummy. Anyway, sorry! This is super last minute! And it has to be Saturday or Sunday or something, because I’m working late Friday.Continue reading

Friday WatchAlong: Tum Mere Ho! 3pm Chicago Time! For Aamir Week
This is, inarguably, the best bad movie Aamir was ever in. So I think we should appreciate it especially on this, Aamir week. Also, it was the only movie I could find that was short enough I could squeeze it in before going to see Radha Shyam.Continue reading
Friday WatchAlong: Scheduling is Impossible! We Are Doing Tum Mere Ho Again Just Because of Length. And Snakes. 3pm Chicago Time Tomorrow!
I’m trying to see Radhe Shyam on Friday, and the showtimes are NOT working with watchalong. And we can’t do Saturday because Filmikudhi has a baby and Genevieve has a concussion. So I have retreated to the shortest Aamir movie I can think of, which is also excellently entertaining.Continue reading
Friday/Saturday WatchAlong: For Aamir!!!! Mann, Lagaan, or Jaane Tu…Ya Jaane Na?
I know I know, everyone wants to do Hum Hain Rahe Pyar Ke. Which has, irrationally, made me NOT want to pick it. This is the same reason I never sew with a thimble. Because my mother tells me to sew with a thimble. Anyway, there are other Aamir Options!Continue reading
