Grandpa’s got a cardiologist appointment today so, for luck, and also to turn this whole stressful weekend into something fun, get ready for a whole blizzard (how is it also snowing today?) of “Dil” songs!

Andaz Apna Apna: Is It Just Too Irreverent to Be Popular?

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!

Learn Hindi From Film Songs! Part ??? (the “Choli Ke Peeche” one)

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.

Hindi Film 101: Virat Kohli, Shahrukh Khan, Upside Down Mortgages and Starpricing

Well, here’s exciting news!  For the first time since these things started being tracked, Shahrukh Khan is NOT the most valuable celebrity brand in India!!!!  Instead, he has been knocked off his perch by Virat Kohli.  Which made me start thinking in a different way about Virat, about Shahrukh, and about all the other perches Shahrukh should be knocked off of.

All the Salman Classic Reviews in One Place

As a special treat for Salman’s birthday, I have been reposting all the Classic films I have reviewed of his (“classic” meaning, not new films I saw in theaters, but old ones I decided were worthy of reviewing again).  And now he will become the First of the Stars to have his own little index of related reviews.  I will try to remember to keep it updated.

TGIF: Smoking Men

It’s a pun!  Do you get it?  Because it is men who are smoking hot, and also actually smoking, like smoking cigarettes.  Okay, so it’s kind of a lame theme, but I still have holiday brain, and who knows, maybe seeing all of these photos of themselves will inspire some of these guys to make it a New Year’s resolution to stop smoking.

Happy Salman Day!!!!!! 7 Salman Classics Reviewed-starting with Love

I was trying to think what to put up for Friday Classics, and then I thought “why not a Salman movie that I have reviewed in the past, reposted?”  And then I thought “why not two Salman movies?”  And then I thought, “why not ALL THE SALMAN MOVIE CLASSIC REVIEWS ALL AT ONCE.”  And I am going to start with Love, which was an early early movie of his, and he is just brilliant in it.

Happy Birthday Salman (In India)! 52 Reasons I Love You!

I am a Shahrukh person, not an Aamir or a Salman person.  But I can still appreciate not-Shahrukh stars for the wonderful people they are, even if that person is not my particular person.  And Salman is wonderful. Which is what I have said for 3 years running now, and it is still true.

Tiger Zinda Hai Review (SPOILERS): A Lot of Style Hiding a Big Ball of Nothing

As I already said in my no spoilers review, this was not a fun movie.  And not a movie I liked.  And, I think, not actually a good movie.  But a movie with all the trappings to fool people into thinking it is good.

Tiger Zinda Hai Review (No SPOILERS): Not a Fun Move

Well shoot, that was a disappointment!  And I feel kind of bad because I dragged my sister and cousin along with me.  On the other hand, I am also happy that I had them there for moral support.  Because this was very dark and very stressful and not really fun at all!

TGIF: Happy Salman Week! Salman’s Most Famous Feature

This is a re-posted post, but I don’t have time for a new one because I have to run around and go to Tiger Zinda Hai with my family (I think Salman would approve of both seeing his new movie and the family time).  And anyway, I don’t think it is possible to improve on the post I did for his birthday last year.

Happy Tiger Zinda Hai Day! And 5 Days to Salman’s Birthday! Let’s Look at Some Salman Songs

Happy Tiger Zinda Hai day!  Early reports say it is roaring in to the box office.  But I don’t necessarily believe them a) because I am a cynic; b) because the per screen international isn’t available yet and that is the only really accurate figure.  Anyway, to rev us all up and because it is Salman’s Birthday Week, I thought I would post some of the best Salman songs from the past.
