Another 2018 Award! Best Performance in a Bad Part

This suddenly occurred to me while showering, and we’ve still got 7 days before I close voting, so why not add another category? Oh, and if you haven’t voted in all the other categories yet, you still have time, you can find them all here.

TGIT: By Popular Request, Shaggy-Haired Actors!

Tomorrow has to be Christmas-y, because that is The Rule, but I am sneaking in a random post just because I love you and I want you all to be happy.

TGIW: Cuddly Men! The Most Popular Post, Because Everyone Loves a Dad-Bod/Maddy

I learned last Thanksgiving that no one really has the energy or interest to read or comment over the holiday.  So, forget that!  No deep thinking!  I’m re-posting the most popular TGIFs of the past, we can “read” and discuss those.  Okay, and maybe I throw up a post on the Mahabharat just for kicks.

TGIT Post RePost: An Important Question to Consider on this Thanksgiving Week-What Indian Man Looks Best in Blue Jeans? SRK or Salman or Maddy or John?

I put up a deep philosophical post about the Ramayan this morning.  But enough of that!  There are more important things to think about!  And so I am re-posting my massive carefully considered and in depth discussion of which Indian man looks best in blue jeans.  Answer: Probably either Maddy or John Abraham.

Savyasachi Review (SPOILERS): The Right Hand Doesn’t Know What the Left is Doing, Plotwise

Nice little Telugu movie, nothing special, I just watched it for Maddy.  If you might be interested in seeing it, definitely read the No Spoilers review and skip this one (the movie works a lot better if you don’t know what is happening next).  But if you won’t have a chance to see it for whatever reason, you can read this instead.

Savyasachi Review (No Spoilers): Naga Chaitanya is Cute but Madhavan is Cuter!

What a fun movie to watch on a lazy Saturday!  I spent most of the day in bed, and then zipped over to the movie theater (missing the first ten minutes of the movie), and then zipped back home and now I get to write a fun little review of a fun little movie.

Kannathil Muthamittal, My Favorite Ratnam Movie

This film in particular apparently went to a bunch of international film festivals?  The end result being, it is easily available from my library, and on a bunch of streaming websites.  I mean, it’s also a really really good movie, but the reason I picked it to watch next was based purely on convenience.

Mani Ratnam Remake! Alai Payuthey/Saathiya Combined Review

I finally watched Alai Payuthey!  After putting it off for years and years and years and years and years.  Because I love Saathiya, and I didn’t want to risk having it spoiled.  But turns out, they are two distinctly different movies!  Although still similar to Saathiya, so this is going to be kind of a combined review.  I talked about some of these differences a little already when I reported on the OK Jaanu/OK Kanmani remake thing.

TGIF 2: Additional Chocolate Heroes!!!! The Special Limited Edition High Demand Options

Sorry!  Work was NOT FUN today, so I didn’t get quite as complete and extensive as I should have in my original Chocolate heroes post.  Which just gives me an excuse for an additional post, with the extra special ones, the imported handcrafted special fillings ones (I may have to dig my emergency chocolate box out of the freezer tonight).

Breathe Amazon Series Final 2 Episodes! (SPOILERS): We End With Hope and a Hero

And we are at an end!  No more charming-but-murderous Maddy, no more troubled-but-reliable Amit, no more police jeeps driving through the streets of Bombay.  Well, unless you want to watch one of the many many movies that involve police jeeps driving through the streets of Bombay.  I recommend Talaash! (part 1 here, part 2 here, part 3 here) Continue reading

TGIT: Thank You For The Retweets, Have a Maddy-Tovino-Unni Post

This is a very very very specific post.  Our nice commentator/friend Angie got Maddy to read and retweet my Breathe reviews, so in return I shall give her a nice theme TGIT post.  That theme being “here are all the men you like in a variety of outfits and poses”.  And then on tomorrow I will do a “normal” TGIF post that more than one reader will enjoy.

Breathe Recap/Review (SPOILERS): Episodes 5 and 6, Opposing Forces Find their Places

Happy Thursday!  Sometime around midnight tonight (I haven’t figured out the schedule exactly yet) the last episode of Breathe will come out.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a second series at some point, so the story may not necessarily be over, but at least the first part will be resolved. (part 1 of my coverage here and part 2 here)

Tuesday Tamil: Breathe Review/Recap, First 2 Episodes (SPOILERS), Dark Interconnected Crime Drama Comes to India

I finally watched it!  Partly for Maddy, partly for my beloved Amit Sadh (if you like him in this, WATCH RUNNING SHAADI!).  They were both good.  And I am putting it up as a “Tuesday Tamil”, even though it is in Hindi, because really we are all watching if for Maddy mostly, and he is a Tamil industry guy. (part 2 here)

Silly Sunday: Stories for Maddy!

Angie in the comments, my dedicated Madhavan corespondent, said that Maddy has been talking about how he wants to do another love story but no one is offering him a good script.  That is so sad!!!!  Surely we, as a blog community, can come up with something for him.  Or many somethings.

TGIF: All Southern!!!!! Men in Mundus/Lungis

I completely forgot our southerners last week, and I am doing an all-Hindi “Best of 2017” contest, so I really feel like I need to make up for it.  And the best way I can is an Entire Post of Southern Gentleman.  In their native garb.

TGIF Christmas Bonus: Men in Beards! Like Santa!

(A special treat, a second updated and reposted TGIF today!  For Christmas!) I am sure if I wanted to google “sexy Santa” I could find it.  But I don’t want to do that.  So instead, I am going to limit myself to one Santa-like element, and look for beards.  Sexy men with beards.

Silly Sunday: The Christmas Story, in a Hindi Movie Trilogy

I’m excited about this!  In spitballing back and forth in the comments on last week’s post (which was more about Christmas as a festival of lights and social experience and sexy holiday romance), it was suggested that I should just do the whole story.  And I think I can!  If I break it into 3 bits.

TGIF: Happy Day After Thanksgiving! Something I am Very Thankful for, Men in Blue Jeans!

I was all nice and daughterly and granddaughterly yesterday, now it’s time to be completely inappropriate and put up my TGIF post!  And as a special treat, I am posting it early in the day.  It should still keep you entertained all day, since I think this is my longest TGIF post ever.  And it also includes a complex and objective rating system, that you can feel free to disagree with, modify, or use for your own ratings in the comments
