Saturday WatchAlong: Signature Move! 8:30am Chicago Time Saturday!
I’ve decided to be totally selfish. I’ve been wanting to see Signature Move for ages, and I like watching movies on Saturday mornings. And it’s only 90 minutes, so even if no one else shows up, I will be happy talking to myself for 90 minutes (more than that and it gets weird).Continue reading

Sunday ReRun: Loins of Punjab, Still the Best Movie on the Indian-American Experience; At Least, in New Jersey
I just watched this movie for the 4th time, and it is still So. Good! And such a hard sell! I’ve seen it 4 times partly because people will only watch it if I sit next to them and force them to. Because the title alone really isn’t enough to sell it.Continue reading
