Well, shoot! I was all set to just repost my Arjun Reddy review with the names changed and call it a night, but by golly this version slightly changed things just enough that I can’t do that!Continue reading
It’s 11pm on a work night, but I am so excited about this movie that I just have to write the review right now!Continue reading
So important to participate in a democratic election! If you don’t vote, your voice won’t be heard. And the wrong Shahrukh Khan film could be chosen as his best ever! Or the wrong Malayalam actress, or the wrong Hindi actor. Vote in the comments, you can give a choice for each category or just the ones you feel confident about. Remember, most comments this month wins a poster!Continue reading
I quite enjoyed everyone’s responses to yesterday’s post asking what films were reviewed unfairly (and please keep adding on there if you remember more or this post reminds you of something!). Everyone gave delightful varied answers that went beyond saying “this film was good and they said it was bad” and instead into how exactly the film was misinterpreted and dismissed. Now, let’s do the same for artists! There are some actors and directors and composers that always get loads of critical acclaim and may not deserve it, and others that never get noticed and really should.Continue reading
Yep, this is an Arjun Reddy remake all right. Shot for shot, moment for moment. And is that good or bad?Continue reading
Such a disturbing movie. Like, not sure if I can go to sleep tonight kind of disturbing. Very disturbing. But also very high quality.Continue reading
Oh dear. I know this is a movie that a lot of you really like. And I’m sorry, but I just don’t. So either you will read this review and be convinced and then I will have taken something pleasurable away from your life. Or you will read this review and disagree with me, and then we will be in a fight, and I don’t like that either. There’s really no way to win here, and I hate it! Well, I suppose I could lie and only say nice things about the movie, but that’s never gonna happen. I have to be honest and mean and make you unhappy. Shoot. Just, don’t read the review. Really, don’t, not if you love this movie and it will make you unhappy to read someone who doesn’t.Continue reading
I’ve been on a bit of a sitcom kick, and we were just talking about the possible “Madhuri in Denver” sitcom idea, and now I can’t stop thinking of TV series ideas based on movie star lives.Continue reading
This is mostly just because there is one news story here that is so perfectly crafted to make frequent commentator Angie very angry that I couldn’t resist it. And then I threw in two others just to fluff up the post.
Usually I do birthday versus birthday, but Kareena has had a long enough career, I think she can be a challenge all in herself.
Some interesting little stories today! With some interesting things to think about in terms of Big Questions of Indian society and film and fun stuff like that. And also, little petty questions like “what the heck is happening on the Manikarnika set and why are they trying so hard to cover it up?”
Happy Saturday! My sister is in town and, after spending the week with my parents, now we are having Sister Weekend. Which mostly means watching movies. Maybe a trip to the grocery store.
This is it, right? This has got to be the end of the Priyanka Chopra story, since PC refuses to give a statement herself, that means Salman’s version becomes definitive and now we are done? Please please say we are done! Oh, and if you don’t care about PC, it is possible this other news story will get you very excited (angry maybe?).
I think maybe I should just accept that Tuesdays will always be horrible. After last week’s terrible Tuesday, I’m having another “can’t think straight because so much is happening” day at work. So I am going to be lazy and do a post just for Angie, National Police Day in Poland. Well, Angie and all of us who enjoy attractive movie stars in police uniform.
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)
4 movies to talk about! In various stages, one a trailer, one a second song, one an announcement, and one starting to film. And I am interested in ALL of them!!!!
Happy Monday! I haven’t done a news post in a while, but I have been reading the news. Rest assured that all the various big stories have been processed in my brain, I just choose not to address all of them. These few here are the ones I find interesting.
Happy Birthday Shahid! I have to admit, I am secretly a bit of a Shahid fan. And so he will get TWO dozen reasons I love you, instead of the usual dozen (this is an updated and reposted post)
“Notable” as in, you can actually recognize him in this. Something that I have never been able to do in Dil To Pagal Hai.
I really really hate this movie. Which is funny since I just mentioned the last Shahid-Bardwaj collaberation Kaminey as my favorite film. But this one, it doesn’t work at all, and I hate it.
This is a film I just can’t help enjoying while I watch it. Knowing it is regressive and illogical and all those things. But it’s FUN!
I’m not going to repost the whole 3 part Padmavat summary review, that would be INSANE. Instead I am going to repost the much shorter no spoilers review.
Hello Again! Another repeat as I continue my day of doing ten million things up to and including getting my annual emissions test for my car. So I am using the time to repost all my Shahid reviews, in honor of his birthday tomorrow.
Shahid doesn’t really deserve a “day”, but my weekend is INSANELY busy this week, so I can’t write anything new, and his birthday is tomorrow, so it seemed appropriate to add him to my actor’s index list. Heck, maybe now that Padmavat has taken off, he will finally reach the top of the industry and have the career he always promised to have but never quite achieved.
