Silly Sunday: Street Dancer 3D, the Way It Should Have Been!

We watched it on Friday, which was super fun. But also we got all upset about the half done love story and I started thinking about how I would have written it to have a whole other second half that gave a more satisfying love story structure instead of the very light weight plot with a lot of dance competitions instead of relationship drama.

Ek Villain Review: Have You Ever Wondered What a Gritty Korean Horror Movie Crossed With an Idealistic Romance Would Look Like?

Thank you Angie for suggesting this! This movie is the perfect film to review quickly without needing to rewatch it. Because it is so slight and light, no need to rewatch. But still good enough I don’t mind reviewing! The sweet spot!

Sunday ReRun: Chhichore! A Nice College Comedy With A Surprising Ending

Well, that was a better movie than I expected! Not super duper great, but enjoyable and pleasant and well made with a very nice message. About a billion times better than Mission Mangal, for instance. And thus, deserving of a Sunday rerun post for those of you who missed it. Especially when Street Dancer 3D has us feeling all warm about Shraddha Kapoor.

Street Dancer 3 Review (SPOILERS): If I Say the Words “Shirtless Dance of Torment”, Are You In or Out?

Plot? Whoooooooo cares???? It’s all about the lights and the glamour and the big flippy things and so on. So read this review, you will still want to see the film anyway. Or not want to see the film if you are a hopelessly practical person who has no love for dance battles and learning lessons and that moment when the power goes out and there is no music but then magically they create their OWN music!!!! Also, the plot is hilarious so read my summary for the giggles.

Chhichhore Review (SPOILERS): Why it Is Important To Talk Honestly To Your Kids About Your Life

I really really like the message of this movie! And it is a message that the trailers and advertisements for some reason didn’t make clear. I’m gonna spoil it in this post, but I honestly think that being spoiled might make you more interested in watching the film than going in unspoiled. But, you know, you do you! Read this review if you want to remain unspoiled.

Saaho Review (SPOILERS): Why is Shraddha Bad at EVERYTHING???

Honestly, doesn’t matter if you read the spoilers or not. Might even help you enjoy the film more if you can follow the plot in advance. Although there is also something to be said for enjoying twists and seeing if you can guess them in advance of the reveal. If you like twists and stuff, read this review. If you get confused by twists and want the summary in advance so you can follow the plot, you can keep reading.

Stree Review (No Spoilers): Young Men Are Dumb and Funny

What a fun movie!  I don’t totally love it as much as I totally love A Gentleman, but it is in the same family of humor.  So I am going to take this moment, once again, to plug A Gentleman.  If you like this movie, you will like that one!  Oh, and you probably will like this movie.  It is very likable.
