Little Things Episode 3 and 4: The Calm, and the Start of the Storm

These were two really pleasant episodes. But also, oh man, I can feel the problems coming! Which is how they happen in relationships in life, you go along all happy and smooth, thinking it’s fine, thinking you are on the same page, and then BLAMO.

Mimi Review (No Spoilers): Nice Light Loving Movie, Surprisingly Little There-There

Well, now I see why so many of you said that I shouldn’t be afraid to watch this movie. It is very pleasant, very light, doesn’t really make you super feel anything. So if you want a real tearjerker deep version of a surrogate story, don’t watch this. But if you want a pleasant timepass that is unobjectionable, this is a nice one.

Toofan Review (SPOILERS): Let Us All Sympathize With the Poor Bigot! The Fragile Bigot! Who Cannot Handle New Ideas or He Will EXPLODE!!!!

It’s true, the movies have shown me. The old white man in America who has to painfully and carefully learn that, maybe, not all racism is good. Poor Lord Crawley in Downton Abbey who has to consider that maybe class distinctions are sometimes unfair. And of course all the Hindu patriarchs in Indian films who have to suffer being told that, sometimes, maybe, non-Hindus and women have a right to live.

Haseena Dillruba Review (SPOILERS): Well, This Went DELIGHTFULLY Over the Top!!!!

What a RIDICULOUS movie! Which knew perfectly well it was ridiculous. If you can’t handle tension and twists and thrillers, read this review to just know the basics of what happened and talk about it with us. Or if you saw it and have Thoughts, you can read my summary and my thoughts and then we can talk!

Haseena Dillruba Review (No Spoilers): The Funnest Kind of Sexy Trash

Super fun movie! If you like black comedy and thriller twists, you will like this. It’s also a lot lighter than you might thing, the tone never shifts into depression and misery, it’s all just mystery and surprises and ridiculousness. On the other hand, if you don’t like twists and black comedy, maybe not.

Time to Dance Review (No Spoilers): Makes Student of the Year 2 Look Like Shakespeare

You think “it’s a dumb dance movie! I know it will be bad, no biggie, I have seen dumb dance movies before”. But, you have no idea! It’s so SO bad! The greatest value in it, is that it makes you appreciate the high comparative quality of other dance movies.

Ajeeb Daastaans Review (No Spoilers): Do Not Think You Know Where These Movies Are Going

Well, this was a FASCINATING collection of short films! I highly highly recommend it. Except for the 2nd film which might have been the most interesting, but also has something happen in it that is so bad I suspect it will be triggering for some of you. I’ll SPOIL it at the end of this review so you can decide for yourself and be warned. Even if you can’t watch that movie, you can still watch the other 3!!!!

Roohi Review (SPOILERS): The Superheroine Origin Story I Always Wanted and Never Knew It!!!!

Yaaaaaay, a SPOILERS review!!!! If you just don’t have the energy to watch this movie but are curious about it anyway. Or if you can’t do horror but want to know what it is like. Or if you have seen it and are DESPERATE to discuss. But if you like horror comedies with a feminist message, you can also save this as a special treat and NOT read this review.

Silly Sunday: Charles Sobhraj Inspired Netflix Miniseries Starring SRK and Katrina Kaif

Great, Netflix finally does a Charles Sobhraj miniseries like I have been wanting, but there is only a little bit of Sexy Desi Cop which was my MAIN requirement for a Charles Sobhraj miniseries! I mean, there is still some sexy desi cop, split between two separate sexy cops, but it’s not the main storyline like it would have been in my more fictionalized version.

The Big Day Discussion Space: How Was It, Did You Believe in Love, Did You Believe in Expensive Weddings, Other Thoughts?

I have not seen it and I probably won’t see it. Life is too short! I like my happy dumb movies at my friends movie nights and our watchalongs, and then doing puzzles the rest of the time. However, just because I haven’t seen it doesn’t mean we can’t talk about it! In fact, it means I want you to talk more, tell me alllllllllllllll about it. And then tell each other about it and have conversations and stuff too!
