What has happened to the trialer makers of Hindi film???? Have they all been kidnapped and their incompetent teenage children are trying to take over? Was there some horrible brain weapon that wiped their memories? Or did they go on strike and instead Hindi filmmakers have to use slave labor from some country that doesn’t even speak Hindi?Continue reading
So many things happening without my supervision! I’m going to try to summarize them all and we can decide if they are good ideas, or bad ideas.Continue reading
It’s the Jewish New Year, and the calendar New Year is coming in a couple months. What do we want from 2020 in Indian film?Continue reading
Happy Sunday! This is a silly silly post, and a lazy post. I’m not writing the ending for these, you get to!Continue reading
Kangana through Rangoli just said something so shocking I have to point it out and correct it. And on the other hand, two bits of casting that make me happy, Kat and Sara both get good parts.Continue reading
I had such fun re-writing one strange memorable 60s Hollywood teen film last week, I thought I might try again this week. Especially because this one has the PERFECT role for Shahrukh. Oh, and it is also very VERY long. And not necessarily good, I just wrote myself into a plot hole and it took a while to write myself out.Continue reading
I’m finally going to spoil Simmba! Long after everyone else in the world has had a chance to watch it! Which means I don’t have to put in much of a SPOILER warning. If you want to see the movie, I assume you have already watched it. If you don’t want to see the movie but want to know what happens, then this is the place!Continue reading
Fun movie! Great movie to take other people with me to watch. A little bit darker than you might expect for a little bit longer than you might expect, but mostly okay.Continue reading
I’ve decided I get to make up my own rules for this category. It’s not an actress whose first movie was this year (although there are some of those), it could also be an actress who had been around for a while but finally got noticed this year. And as always, I will make my nominations just to get the ball rolling, but you can write in your own votes too.Continue reading
It’s Saturday, why think? I’m just gonna do a quick post based on a discussion in the comments, and also because I love writing fanfics (it’s like stretching after running).Continue reading
OH THIS MOVIE!!!!!! Mad me so angry at how they ended it! But I only got angry because I cared, the rest of the film was good enough to make me care. If you want to know what happens and why I am angry, you can read the rest of the review. If you want to go in fresh, you can read the No Spoilers review.
This is a hard review to write, because I don’t want to spoil the movie, but then on the other hand I need to be give you a clue of what kind of a film it will be so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to watch it. I guess I will just say that I really liked the opening and the middle, but the ending did not work for me AT ALL. So if you are able to enjoy a movie in pieces, can separate out sections, you will enjoy it a lot. But if you can’t block out bits and pieces, (like me), then the bitter ugly bit is going to end up ruining the rest of it. So, BE AWARE!
I can’t believe it, Karan released this on twitter exactly 5 minutes after I went to bed. He must be watching me through his secret cameras and waiting until I go to sleep and only then releasing new stuff. Evil Karan! EVIL! Or at least, a little mean.
This is not the greatest trailer. Or maybe it is? It tells you exactly what this movie will be, no extra style flourishes or fanciness.
Fun fun! Song songs! I don’t know how these movies will be, but the songs are really lovely. Too bad it’s after Thanksgiving so I am not allowed to listen to anything but Christmas music until the 26th (allowed by myself, I have very strict rules for me).
I almost put up a post just for Kedarnath yesterday, but patience was rewarded and today there are two other trailers to go along with it.
Always so much news on Saturday! Which is nice, because it is easy to write these posts and then I don’t have to think of anything new.
Happy Saturday! I am pre-scheduling this because I am going to sleep in! And then go see Soorma. And then take a nap. The perfect day.
Nothing super interesting to discuss today, but some little bits of things to throw out there for all of us to chew on (now I am imagining myself as a zookeeper throwing news meat to my pack of lion-commentators to fight over and masticate down to nothing).
