Saaho Review (SPOILERS): Why is Shraddha Bad at EVERYTHING???

Honestly, doesn’t matter if you read the spoilers or not. Might even help you enjoy the film more if you can follow the plot in advance. Although there is also something to be said for enjoying twists and seeing if you can guess them in advance of the reveal. If you like twists and stuff, read this review. If you get confused by twists and want the summary in advance so you can follow the plot, you can keep reading.

Saaho Review (No Spoilers): An Unambitious Little Action Film with a MASSIVE BUDGET Shoved Inside

Well, that was ridiculous stupid fun! If you like explosions, love songs at famous tourist attractions, and lots of whistle worthy dialogues, this is for you. If you don’t…then what are you doing watching movies? Go off and read a book or something!

Magical Thinking Post: Let Us All Combine Our Powers For These Very Small Wishes

I am a deep believer in the “God has a plan” theory and also the “Butterfly effect” theory. Meaning that I don’t like to make big wishes for fear they will come true and somehow mess with The Universe. But I think the following small wishes should be safe and not permenantly damage anything. Join me in combining our powers to Make Them So!

TGIT: Hot Men with Coffee

I’m sleeeeeeeeeeeeeepy. Was up until 1am last night writing Bharat reviews. And now it is really hard to get my brain to work. So I will do things that require no thought, and might also give me a shot of imaginary caffeine (no real caffeine today, which is also causing sleepies and headache and general bad mood). Let’s imagine all these hot men are offering me coffee!

Thursday Telugu: Mirchi Review Part 2, VERY VERY LONG

Like I said with Part 1, Mirchi was the first true Telugu film I watched, and I was super excited and wrote a very very long email to moviemavengal/Pardesi about it. And then a few years ago I took that email and turned it into a very very long review. Part 1 went up a bit ago, here is Part 2.

Silly Sunday FanFic: Overboard! With Shahrukh and Juhi, and Prabhas and Anushka!

I posted this late Wednesday night, but it got very very few views. I am hoping that is because people just didn’t see the post, not because they hate it. I have TV again thanks to youtube, which means I am seeing Overboard on a constant repeat, the way TV tends to play it. And I am thinking, once again, how easy it would be to fix this and make it the totally perfect plot. And so long as I am doing that, why not set it in India?

Silly Random FanFic: Overboard! Rewritten for India, Plus Gender-Swapped!

I have TV again thanks to youtube, which means I am seeing Overboard on a constant repeat, the way TV tends to play it. And I am thinking, once again, how easy it would be to fix this and make it the totally perfect plot. And so long as I am doing that, why not set it in India?

TGIF: Christmas Themed! Men and Women in Green (Like Elves!) Prabhas to Shahrukh to Anushka Shetty

I tried really really hard to come up with good imaginative theme this week.  And then I gave up and decided “Green! Like Christmas!” (disclaimer: green turns out to be a really tricky shade! Some of these photos looked green on my home computer and not on my work one.  After spending some time squinting, I just gave up and accepted that color can be subjective)

TGIF Annual Holiday Season ReRun: Men in Beards! Like SANTA!!!

It’s the annual (and sometimes other random times in the year) treat!!!!!  Men in Beards!  For Christmas!  Like SANTA!!!  Yes, I know it isn’t Christmas yet, but I just barely managed to finish my Delhi 6 review at work and I still have to do blechy end of month work stuff today, so you are going to have to be happy with a TGIF rerun (although there’s a couple new photos).  If you want something new, check out Fawad’s Birthday Post.

TGIF: Bachelors and Bachelorettes! Match Them Up or Pick One For Yourself!

This was VERY VERY difficult to research!!!!  Not as much information as I would wish on relationship status of the famous.  I decided not to include people who were married, or engaged, or in that all-but-engaged level like Rajkummar or Varun.  But just dating someone like Ranbir and Alia, fair game!  And I know I probably missed people (Arjun Rampal now divorced, Sushmita Sen never married, Tabu, etc). I am posting this earlier than the usual TGIF just so we all have time to make full careful considerations and decisions.

Happy Veteran’s Day! To Celebrate, Men in Uniform!

Happy Veterans Day!  Yesterday was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI and there weren’t nearly as many celebrations as I expected.  I guess 100 years from now everything we are going through will seem very small and out of date too.  That’s kind of comforting.  Anyway, enough of that, hot guys in uniform!
