Valentine's Week of Sex Competition Post! Name Twins Compete for Sexiest Crown!

No Shahrukh! He would skew the results. Instead, I am putting a bunch of non-SRKs up against each other in a series of matched pairs. Good news is, you don’t need to have heard of any of these people before!!!!! Just look at the photos and make a snap judgement. Like picking out a bride.

Discussion Post: What Actor and Actress Should Win "Most Improved"? Who Should NOT???

I just want to talk about how I secretly like Sid M. again. But I also think this is an important award! Effort should be rewarded. Most important part about this post is that actual end quality does not matter, it’s about the distance between the start and the end. Like, Ranbir is still a better actor/dancer/everything than Sid M, but has he improved at all from where he started?

Daily Hrithik Shipping Post: War Sequel!!!! What Jodi Do We Want Next?

I have Ideas!!!! And you can pick and choose among them. Don’t limit yourself, if this is like the Bond or Mission Impossible films, it could go on and on and on with a different love interest each time. Pick one, or two, or three!

Silly Sunday FanFic: Same-Sex Romances, Antonio Banderas and Shahrukh, SOTY as It Should Have Been

Do we keep coming up with same-sex romances because they are sexy, or because it is a gap that can only be filled by fanfic and not reality? Or both? Anyway, here are two more of those thingies.

Jabariya Jodi Review (SPOILERS): Way Too Many Twists For One Love Story to Carry!

This movie is….fine. It’s not great and perfect, but I will happily rewatch the best bits over and over again, and the worst bits aren’t torture. If you like rom-coms and you want to see it, read the no spoiler review instead. If you don’t like rom-coms but are still curious about it, you can read this.

Sunday ReRun: Baar Baar Dekho! Let’s Look At the Last Time Sid Did a Rom-Com

I really need to rewatch this movie. I think I might like it a lot better knowing where it is going. And I already liked it a decent amount. It wasn’t great, but it was far from terrible. Oh, and it’s on Amazon Prime! So you should all watch it. Oh, and watch out, I had a lot of time the week this released so I did a full scene by scene discussion. VERY LONG.

News Round-Up: Kangana’s Nasty, Kareena’s Nice, Sid’s Fake-Dating, and Pankaj Has a New Job

Well, Kangana is now publicly spiraling out. And the response is STILL “gee, so outspoken, so honest!” Well, at least from the comments and analysis on her pet site Pinkvilla, I think other sites are a wee bit more “this woman is crazy”.

Saturday Small Talk: What Do You Want to Talk About While I Sleep In?

I am a lazy bear today!  Stayed up too late seeing Kedarnath and then trying to keep my eyes open to write a review, on top of a series of late nights and busy times.  So today I am giving myself some time to just do absolutely nothing.  Except pick up my rugs from the cleaners that I can only get to on Saturdays.  But otherwise, NOTHING!

Sunday ReRun Review: A Gentleman! Now that Stree Has Everyone Appreciating Raj & DK

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)

Sonam Wedding Epilogue! Start Your ‘Ships!

I can’t stop myself!  I keep looking at Sonam wedding videos!  And, thanks to the latest batch, I now have several competing “ships” that I am rooting for.  And I am sharing them with you, in the hope of either getting companions on board the SS Relationship, or else getting a solid common sense mind to drag me off.

Aiyaary Review (SPOILERS): Wait, So That Was 4 Days/3 Hours To Get Us Back Where We Started?

Well, this was a pointless movie!  As in, the whole plot happens, and then you realize at the end “wait, that had no effect on anything”.  Not in a clever ironic way, but like the scriptwriter didn’t think it through.  And that’s on top of  the themes and characters just not being what they promised to be. (no spoilers review here)

Aiyaary Review (No Spoilers): Neeraj Panday’s Usual Con Fails

Well, this was a bad movie.  Not a “I want to die” bad movie, more like a “maybe I will just take a little nap until it is over” bad movie.  Great actors, wasn’t their fault, but terrible script and terrible direction, just boring and unengaging.

Happy Birthday Yash and Roohi!!!!!

A happy post! To balance the serious one from earlier today.  And also because I looooooooooooove Yash and Roohi.  Most serious and concerned babies ever!

2017 Hindi Film Awards, Editor’s Choice: Favorite Hindi Film of 2017, A Gentleman

It’s a Sidharth blow out!!!!!!!!  Best film yesterday, and my favorite film today.  Not a coincidence exactly, less about Sidharth choosing good movies/good movies choosing him, and more about the level of star who is still allowed to experiment and risk failure.
