A Gentleman Podcast, With Bonus Massive Argument Over Tiger Shroff

Well, we loved this movie unconditionally (almost), but still managed to get into a big fight in the middle of the podcast over whether Siddharth or Tiger Shroff is a better actor.  Don’t even know for sure how we got on that topic, but things were a bit heated for a while there.  Which I am sure will be fun to listen to!

A Gentleman Review (SPOILERS): This is a Definite “Don’t Spoil Yourself if There is Any Chance At All You Will Be Able to See This Movie” Kind of Movie.

HA!  I WAS RIGHT!!!  I rule all!!!!  I am SO HAPPY!!!!!  The twist that I hoped was the twist was the twist, not the other twist that could have been the twist.  And I’m happy not just because I am clearly a GENIUS, but because the twist I hoped was the twist is so much better than the other twist would have been. (no spoilers review here)  But you shouldn’t know what the twist is!  Because it is SO MUCH more enjoyable going in blind, and this movie is SO GOOD.  This is a definite “don’t spoil yourself if there is any chance at all you will be able to see this movie” kind of movie.

A Gentleman Review (No Spoilers): A Movie Made Just For Me

Okay, let me throw some titles out there for you: Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  Desperado. Johnny Gaddar.  Burn After Reading.  Dishoom.  Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.  Bang Bang. Get Shorty.  Jhankar Beats.  Now, are you smiling?  Are you happy?  Are you remembering good times?  Or are you rolling your eyes because these are all stupid worthless fluff films?  If you are one of the first people, this is the film for you (and also, we should be friends).  If you are one of the second people, this is not the film for you (and we can still be friends, but maybe should only watch classic movies together not new stuff) (spoilers review here)

New Jab Harry Met Sejal Song and A Gentlemen Trailer!

Shahrukh is not being very considerate to me!  I have this bonkers week (my family is staying about an hour and a half outside of the city, so I am commuting back and forth and they are keeping me up all night with family stuff and then I have to drive drive drive to work the next day), and I get up this morning thinking maybe I will have a little time to, like, brush my hair, but no!  Shahrukh has just posted a 5 minute video that I have to watch instead. Oh, and also Siddharth has a trailer, but it’s not as long and I don’t have to watch as closely.  And neither of them used subtitles, because they hate me because I am disgusting and live in a car and never wash my hair.

Katching Up With Koffee: Siddharth and Jacqueline, Making Interest Out of Nothing

This was an interesting episode!  Mostly because of the challenge it posed to Karan, how is he going to get the audience interested in these two people that we just don’t really care about that much?  It’s the same problem he had with Parineeti and Aditya Roy Kapoor, but I think he handled it better this time.

Worst Actor of 2016 is the Only One Capable of Actually Ruining a Movie

I went back and forth on this one.  I really really wanted to do Nargis Farkri, because she drives me crazy, but that didn’t seem fair.  Because she was kind of set up to fail in her movie roles, with a bunch of characters that never made sense and no real direction, so she was left to sort of pouting her way through the part as best she could.  No, I want to give it to someone who had a good script backed role and failed to manage it. (did that header trick you into thinking it might be Kat?  No!  She actually did a pretty good job in her movies this year)
