I liked this movie more than I thought I would! I was all set for dark-dark-dark, and then surprise! Character development! For once, our hero isn’t just perfect from the start.

I Will Now Fix Aamir Khan’s Career: He Should Remake Tootsie and Make Fun of Himself
This is really Catherine’s idea, at least she is the one who put it together for me that Dustin Hoffman and Aamir Khan have similar reputations as nice guys who take their acting way way WAY too seriously. Dustin Hoffman made Tootsie partly to make fun of that about himself, and Aamir really needs to do the same thing.Continue reading

Bazaar Review (SPOILERS): Most Boring and Unsympathetic Hero Ever, Why Couldn’t it Be About Saif Instead?

Andhadhun Review (SPOILERS): A Beautiful Twist at the Interval
I already put up my No Spoilers review, and this film is such a fun ride, I encourage you to read that one and leave this one until after you have watched it. Unless you can’t handle violence, can’t handle thrillers, or for some other reason will never be able to watch this movie.
Andhadhun Review (No Spoilers): A Light Noir
Fun movie! Surprisingly fun movie, especially after all the misery that was Badlapur. We are back to the lighthearted Johnny Gaddar version of Sriram Raghavan. Definitely recommend it if you want something fun with a great cast.

Lust Stories Review (SPOILERS): Female Desire Takes Center Stage
A day filled with reviews! Both Race 3 reviews are done now, so I can circle back and finish the SPOILER review for Lust Stories. However, I would encourage you NOT to read this until you watch the Netflix series. Partly because the films are so open to interpretation, they deserve to be watched with fresh eyes and your own decisions made about them. Instead, just read my No Spoilers review and then come back here.
Lust Stories Review (No Spoilers): A Little Playbox for Actors
Another review and another movie! I am being so productive this weekend. And this was a very different movie from Race 3.

I already posted my “no spoilers” review, and you might want to read that instead of this one, even if you are familiar with the “real” story, because the movie takes some interesting liberties with it.
Kabali: My First Tamil and My First Rajinikanth Film in Theaters!
I saw Kabali! It was SO GOOD! Okay, the second half lost track of itself a little bit, and there were some character bits that could have been better, but overall it just had so much more depth and excitement and energy than the other movies I have seen lately!
