Huh! This trailer is not at all what I predicted and the film looks like it might be far better than expected, in terms of performances, imagination, and topic. Yaaay! I love good movies!Continue reading
More news! This time, just kind of interesting stuff about the growth of the China-India movie trade relationship.Continue reading
Happy Saturday! I am at my sister’s house and the days are kind of getting a little bit away from me. In a fun way! I saw Student of the Year 2 at the earliest possible show yesterday, and then we were off doing things for hours and I didn’t get to write my review until the evening. Oh well.Continue reading
An anonymous commenter (sorry! If you identify yourself in the comments, I will thank you!) posted a link to this article and I finally sat down and read it. It not only gives an extremely similar story to Hrithik-Kangana, only not between celebrities so it is easier to be objective, it also gives information on stalking behavior from psychiatrists and police experts.Continue reading
Oh boy, I get to recap the whole Hrithik-Kangana thing again! The only good thing is, I was team Hrithik from the start (go me!) because Kangana’s story was always just WEIRD, and his wasn’t. So I get a little ego-boost each time it comes up again. But that is literally the ONLY good thing. Otherwise, it is all stressful and exhausting and strangely repetitive. I would much rather go back to Kangana’s weird work issues than digging up her work-personal issues.Continue reading
Another SOTY2 song? This one might be my favorite in every way, but I am still kind of tired of them all. On the other hand, the Ekta Kapoor Mental Hai Kya statement is FASCINATING.Continue reading
Happy Cinco de Mayo! A Mexican holiday, which inspires me to find every vaguely Hispanic song in the history of Indian film. The last two years I have done 5 videos, this year I am going to challenge myself to find TEN videos! Fun times. Oh, and if you tend to ignore these posts, this is one you should pay attention to. I found really good and different songs.Continue reading
Watched another early morning classic noir, a jail break movie. But what intrigued me for an Indian remake is that it managed to come up with the most shocking possible plot and I kind of want to see someone remake it just to watch everyone Lose Their Freakin’ Minds. And I also watched an early morning classic family film which would be perfect if Shahrukh wanted to play a befuddled father. Or Anil. Or Aamir. Whoever.Continue reading
Long story short, still no dog! But I got to spend a fun 10 hours driving literally all over the city to church, the pound, a series of adoption events, and finally the movie. And then milk on the way home. But because I was planning on getting a dog, I dressed up for the dog, and it is way WAY too cold for a dress today. And now I am still completely freezing even after being home for 20 minutes. So, time to pull out some hot songs to warm me up!Continue reading
Personally, I find this story fascinating. You don’t have to, either because you are just tired of it, or because you like to watch movies but aren’t interested in how they are made, or just because you don’t think it is that important or worth discussion. But I find it fascinating, and so I am going to indulge myself with another post, and putting up a bunch of videos for you all to watch, and hoping that there will be someone else here I can talk to about it all.Continue reading
Missed his birthday yesterday, but at least we can celebrate with a lovely TGIF. Including objectification and rankings, which is just what anyone would want for their birthday, right? Oh well, if we didn’t critique him, how would he ever get better?Continue reading
This seems like a happy and fruitful discussion topic, right? Especially since Hrithik has an oddly short filmography so you can watch all the songs right now in order to refresh your memory.Continue reading
Okay, how can I say this classily? There is a certain kind of pose which seems to say “yes, climb on top of me and enjoy yourself”. That is the kind of pose that I am looking for this week. You know, so you can pretend you are kneeling on top of them throwing rose petals or something in a chaste and romantic manner.
Happy happy Saturday! I am visiting my sister for a flying visit, arrived super late last night, so don’t expect me to write anything intelligent until quite late in the day. But that shouldn’t stop you all from talking!
Our last Shahrukh Month Review! So SAD!!!! There is still Jab Harry Met Sejal Day to look forward to on Sunday, but that won’t be a “new” movie to the blog. Oh well, there’s always the much less important holiday seasons of Diwali and Christmas to look forward to once Shahrukh Month is over.
I always forget how good this movie is, and then I watch it again and it is just REALLY REALLY good. And sometimes I feel like I am the only person who realizes that, it’s not talked about nearly as much as you would expect for a Farhan Akhtar/Hrithik Roshan/Amitabh Bachchan/Boman Irani/Amrish Puri/Om Puri/Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy/Javed Akhtar/Preity Zinta movie.
This post isn’t as long as I remembered, but it is probably nice to have a little short post for you all to read instead of the overwhelmingly long ones. After all, the movie is long enough without the post making it even longer.
Last night Meenakshy and I got to talking in the comments over whether I should switch from Prabhas to Siddharth for my Telugu husband, which turned into a discussion of how I get to have a husband for every language, which reminded me of this post.
It was so nice not reporting Priyanka news for years and years. But now she is back and I can’t escape her. And I really don’t like it, because it makes me sound a little mean and a lot crazy, but on the other hand, it is what it is and this is the only way to interpret it. Other stuff is more interesting though, so I can talk lots and lots about that and little little about PC.
This is usually the day I do my box office report, but I went over to BH to get the numbers and ran into a bunch of news stories I thought I should talk about first. So box office is coming, eventually, but first news for us!
I have 20 minutes before the kids get here, so I am going to write a news report post real quick, and then dig a croquet set out of the attic so they can hit each other with mallets. Or possibly actually play croquet, but that seems unlikely.
Happy Saturday! I have nothing to do for the first weekend in ages. Thank goodness, because I was getting seriously sleep-deprived, and Dog Hazel was getting a bit lonely.
This is inspired by the fanvid post I put up earlier today with a gabillion Hrithik videos, which just reminded me how many different varying shades of Hrithik there are. It’s a bit like learning to appreciate fine wine, at first it all tastes the same, but as your palate deepens, they become very different from each other.
It’s like a little miracle, I was looking for a song on youtube and poof!!!! New fanvid channel! Which is mostly Hrithik (enjoy, Filmilibrarian!)
