Well, that was a disaster! And not in the way I was expecting, but rather the complete opposite. Salman and all the performers were great, it was everything else that was shockingly bad. And I can look at video from Atlanta and see that they got a totally different show than I did. WHAT HAPPENED IN CHICAGO????
Happy Day I See Salman! I have a new outfit plan (because of the goshawful cold and drizzly weather), and a new schedule for the day (based on checking the time on the tickets and the estimated travel time). I’m ready!
Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the work week, and it has been work this week! We’ve got a new client who is calling for help constantly, forcing me to actually do work while at work. Very frustrating, when obviously blogging is far more important.
I’m back! I already put up the No Spoilers review which pretty much tells you everything you need to know about the film. The plot is a total mess, so knowing spoilers won’t really change anything. This review is probably more helpful for people who have seen the film and are confused (as I was), than for people curious what the film is about. Bottomline is, it’s about nothing!
Watched it! With an Eid audience, which was super fun. We were very under dressed, but we got to admire everyone else’s nice clothes.
My boss is gone today which means I can look at photos on my computer without fear of being observed and judged. Well, my co-workers might judge me, but whatever, I don’t care what they think. And I was just talking with Meenakshy about who looks good in a Dhoti, so why not do a Dhoti post? Similar too but different from my previous Lungi post. (for the purposes of this post, “Dhoti” means any single cloth that is used as a wrap skirt by an Indian man)
Mamootty picks the BEST story ideas for his age. After Bhaskar the Rascal, here is another one, Pullikkaran Staraa, that is age appropriate and interesting and could so easily be translated into a Hindi film. Especially since the Malayalam original was only moderately successful and of only moderate quality.
This is a suuuuuuuuper fast news report, because I am still on vacation and I want to spend time with my sister, not blog. But I also feel it’s not fair to all of you, who read me so faithfully, not to provide content! And anyway, there were a couple of interesting stories today.
Happy Sunday! I wrote soooooooooooooooo much yesterday, and like good high quality stuff, reviews of Bhavesh Joshi and Veere Di Wedding. So this morning, I get to write short total trash, in a nice change of pace. Let’s pretend the world is a bad romance novel of the Judith Kranz type and rewrite reality!
I figured people might be tired of Madhuri Madhuri Madhuri, and I also want to put this out in the world in hopes that Tips can do a last minute rewrite and highly improve their film.
It’s been pointed out that I might appear to undervalue this film and that is why I haven’t spoken much about it. Truly, I don’t undervalue it! It’s just such an unusual film that it doesn’t fit easily with a discussion of anything else. Nothing else is really like it, and therefore available for comparison with it. And it didn’t start a particular trend in filmmaking (beyond the general “Family Films” trend), because it would be so hard to imitate. But yes, I do know about this movie, I know all sorts of things about it and I am aware of it’s place in film history.
I’ll go back to Madhuri posts in a bit, but first, Race 3 Trailer!!!!!! FINALLY!!!! And the most important part…..Anil has a beard!
I can’t stop myself! I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos! And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for. And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.
I just get a giggle out of today’s news items and can’t resist sharing them. Sometimes celebrity news is very silly! Oh, and some of this stuff is actually interesting too.
Those noble souls with cell phone cameras and twitter accounts, they are the real heroes! Making us feel like we are there partying with everyone else. Only, less hot and drunk and vaguely tired.
Well, this is news. Or maybe not. Salman has been sentenced to jail a lot, and then somehow it ends up not happening, so I just don’t know.
This is from last year, but they are still good ideas! So along with the sequels for Rani from earlier today, here are some brand new movie ideas.
I’m excited! Lots of fun options here! Not just epilogues and alternative endings, but straight up separate movie plots following up on the same characters.
I considered songs about pie, but there really aren’t that many. So instead, to represent the concept of “Pi”, songs that involve circles.
This post comes to you from the airport between flights! So, not a lot of time for research or content, but enough time to throw up something quick based on twitter.
Happy Aamir Day! No reason besides my being swamped at work and needing to fall back on reruns. And also wanting to pull together an Aamir index to go with my Shahrukh and Hrithik and Salman indexes. So, today you get a bunch of Aamir reviews I wrote and posted already being reposted! Fun fun fun!
Oh boy, lots of interesting movies to talk about today! None of which are actually out there in the world yet, but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about them
Let’s see if I have time to write this before I have to leave for work! But there are enough exciting things happening, I want to get it up and out there.
I have completely lost count of how many of these I have done. Oh well, they are just for fun, it doesn’t really matter. And I’ve had a high number of “thinky” posts over the past few days, it’s okay to throw in one that is just for fun.
