Happy New Year! Kirre Just Reminded Me that YJHD Ends on New Year! In Honor of the Holiday, Here is My Reposted Review

Yes! An old review! But a good movie, and one that might be interesting to talk about again as Brahmastra creaks towards a release with the same star and director/writer.

In Honor of Brahmastra Motion Poster, Ranbir Discussion Post!!! Can You Articulate Why You Dislike Him? Personally and/or Professionally?

Elin Star is doing a deep dive in the archives to figure out what is up with Ranbir. But then I realized that the DCIB archives are probably out of date, he keeps living and not-changing, and with every year that passes there are more reasons to dislike him. Or like him, I guess? But if you like him, what are you doing on DCIB? Explain yourself!

Discussion Post: What Celebrity Do You Somehow Not Like as a Person? Not Their Politics or Performances, Just the Personality as you Sense It?

I was soooooooooooo happy yesterday to discover that everyone else also had that creepy bad-liberal vibe from Kamal Haasan. And now I am curious about what other celebrities have given us a similar icky feeling just from interviews and things, not politics or police cases or performances.

Valentine’s 90s Week of Romance: I Am Super Grumpy and I Am Going to Complain About Jerry Maguire (and a little Ranbir), and A Lot a Bit MEN!!!!!

The world is a bleak and horrible place filled with no sun and snowdrifts, it’s super unfair that I have to do work-work in the living room instead of continuing to sleep in my nice warm bed, and I don’t want to walk the dog. And you know whose fault that is? MEN! White Old Rich Men!!!! In some way I am not clear on, but I know I am mad about it. I’m gonna talk about how Tom Cruise/Cameron Crowe are terrible people who think they are good. Oh, and don’t bother actually watching Jerry Maguire before reading this post, I will tell you everything you need to know.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Do Final Christmas Prep

Happy Saturday! I am right on schedule, time to do the final apartment clean and wrap presents, then go back to my parents and make a gingerbread house. I don’t know if we actually want to make a gingerbread house, but it is on the list of Christmas Activities I wrote up back in November, so we have to.

In Honor of His Birthday Yesterday, and to Cheer Us All Up, Let’s Talk About Why We Dislike Ranbir Kapoor as an Actor/Public Person!

This is a happy place, and a generally nice place, so obviously we all wish Ranbir well as a human person on earth, we want him to successfully defeat whatever internal demons he has, we want him to be at peace, and we aren’t going to troll him or stalk him or torment him on social media or any of that. But, I think we are allowed to say bad things about his acting, his films, and the way he presents himself to the world, right? That doesn’t make us bad people?

News Round-Up: Life Goes On! Brahmastra is Delayed, Salman Makes a Bad Business Decision, and Amitabh Makes Us Cry

News round-up! This is mostly because Brahmastra made me laugh and laugh and laugh. Oh, and because I have a new commenter getting to know Amitabh, and it reminded me that he is a combination of rawly emotional and very very restrained in his public appearances.

Discussion Post: If a Genie Gave You Only One of These Wishes, Which Would You Pick? (Or, Would You Rather Karan Gets Married, or Alia Doesn’t?)

No, you can’t wish for infinite wishes! Genie’s are sick of the little smart aleck kids who say that. You can only have ONE wish, and it is strictly Indian film related, and here are your choices. Be warned, they are HARD!!!!

Ritu Nanda, Daughter of Raj Kapoor, Sister of Rishi Kapoor, and Mother-in-Law of Shweta Bachchan, Has Passed Away

Ritu was related to a lot of famous public people, but was not a public person herself. I don’t want to reveal too much of her life which (by choice) she kept private. But I want to point to how she affected those around her who have chosen to lead a public life.

Worst Ranbir Kapoor Film of the 2010s, Poll Post

Seems like, along with being an unofficial SRK fansite, we have also become an unofficial Akshay Kumar/Ranbir Kapoor anti-fan site. And I’m kind of okay with that, whatever makes us happy. Anyway, to go along with the “worst Akshay film of the 2010s”, we must also consider “worst Ranbir film of the 2010s”.

Silly Sunday: Little Women as a Dark Romantic Drama! Laurie is Evil and Amy is Gay

Thanks Alisa! You saw the new American Little Women and complained about it which inspired me to rethink my Indian remake (already wrote it once here) when you suggested that one of the Little Women should get herself a Little Woman.

Hindi Film 101 Repost: Katrina Kaif, Mystery Woman

I wrote this about 6 months ago, but I want to repost it now in context with the other actress 101s I have been doing. Just in case you missed it 6 months ago, or in case you read it and want to come back to it with fresh eyes, comparing her with Vidya, and Anushka, and Deepika.
