Sexy Saturday: Male and Female Gaze Defined and Discussed (Repost)

This is an off-shoot of my post on misogyny/objectification/patriarchy, in the comments there was a discussion of whether or not men are objectified in Indian film, which got me thinking about the “male” and “female” gaze questions.

Saturday Small Talk: Lots of Little Stories, Divorce and Injury and New Business!

This is the News Round-Up post I was going to put up yesterday, but then I did a silly TGIF instead. But now we can talk about it all Saturday! And I can do a bunch of tiny Saturday reports on news stories that aren’t important enough for a real post!

Sunday ReRun: Dishoom! So Silly, So Fun, So Dishoom-y

This is a very silly, very fun, very stupid movie. It may not be as brilliant and complex as some other films, but by golly the time just flies by while you are watching it! Oh, and this review needs some formatting fixes, I’ll do it soon, I just want to throw it up quick now before I take the dog for a walk.

TGIW: A Nice Classy Post to Bring You Into the Holiday….Men Laying Down!!!!

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.

News Round-Up: John Talks Sarfarosh, Pa Ranjith Talks Hindi, Everyone Talks PC

Well, this is the gossip cycle that will never end.  I don’t know why I am surprised, this is how it happens, right?  The gossip comes out, and then everyone reacts to it, and then everyone reacts to the reactions.  And I am part of the problem, because it is just barely on the line of affecting the industry and the big messages of stuff so I feel like I should talk about it.  Oh, and also Pa Ranjith might make a Hindi film, yaaaaay!

Happy Police Day in Poland! From Shahrukh, Akshay, Shahid, Nivin, Ajay, John, Rani, and Others

I think maybe I should just accept that Tuesdays will always be horrible.  After last week’s terrible Tuesday, I’m having another “can’t think straight because so much is happening” day at work.  So I am going to be lazy and do a post just for Angie, National Police Day in Poland.  Well, Angie and all of us who enjoy attractive movie stars in police uniform.

Silly Sunday: Ice Cream Themed! A Spy Movie with John and Prabhas and a Love Story with Shahrukh and Kajol

Happy Sunday!  I have to go lead a meeting at church in a bit, but first I get to be totally frivolous and ridiculous with the Silly Sunday stories.  Hopefully I don’t mix this up with my meeting agenda and accidentally start reading it aloud.

Friday Not-So-Classic: Elaan, Because I Am Feeling John Abraham

The beauty of this movie, is that I can write about it very quickly.  Because it is not worth a lot of words.  The other beauty of this movie, is that 2 of the most attractive men in Indian film are in it, and also Rahul Khanna.  And the third beauty of this movie is that it is smart enough to know how dumb it is. The best kind of dumb movie.  And anyway, I have a semi-tradition of writing about bad movies on Friday the 13th.

Lazy Thursday Discussion Post: What in a Trailer Makes You Go “Yeah, I’ll Watch That Movie” (Inspired By John in Police Uniform in Satyamev Jayete)

It’s hot, the week isn’t over yet, and I am trying to avoid starting Sacred Games (it’s just SO BIG. I’m hoping if I carry it around with me everywhere, I can read it by osmosis).  So, let’s have a totally frivolous and silly discussion!

News Round-Up: Desi Boyz Fall Out, Sanju and Manisha Come Together, Rajini and Kamal Face Off, Saif and Sara Go to Court, and Akshay Stands Alone

Boy, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these!  Rest assured, I have been reading the headlines and stuff all along, I just haven’t been writing about them.
