Real Life International Indian-American Crime Story/Awesome Possible Reema-Zoya Series! (Podcast Scam Likely)

I listened to the most FASCINATING podcast, which is directly related to our blog topics which makes it even better. It’s about scam phone calls coming out of Bombay, hitting America targeting NRIs, and the money being processed by non-English speaking desperate recent NRIs driving around the American midwest. We know these people! Like, on film and also in real life!

Silly Sunday on Thursday: True Crime Femme Fatale Romance for SRK, and Recasting Anne of the Island!!!!

I am sitting in a laundromat waiting for my clothes to be done, perfect time to let my imagination take flight and not really think about much of anything. Oh, and by the way, no watchalong this week, my schedule is just too crazy (my friends invited their friend who is a professional landscaper to come fix our back yard, so we are working flat out for the 3 days he is in town)

In Honor of Yvette Mimieux, My Remakes of Where the Boys Are and The Light in the Piazza

My sister emailed me yesterday to tell me that Yvette Mimieux died. She was an actress in Hollywood of the 1960s who had a few notable roles but not much else. What was special about her was a certain kind of broken fragility she brought onscreen. A kind of fragility that inspires love and protection in other women around her, rather than in “male saviors”. Especially in what are, to me, her most memorable roles: Where the Boys Are and Light in the Piazza.

I have had a very stressful work day, Christmas is on a Saturday which means I get literally no days off work, and I still have to walk the dog and go pick up more presents. The only thing that is getting me through is the promise of watching A Castle For Christmas with my friend as a fun evening treat. In that state of mind, let us come up with the most ludicrous possible Christmas movie plots!

Silly Sunday: Which of These Fictionalized Real Crimes Do You Want Made Into a Movie? Male Stripper Romance or Private Eye Abused Wife Romance?

These are real stories, very sad, and so on. But I will deal with tragedy by fictionalizing it and thinking about how great it would be as a Hindi film romance! Especially because both of them remind me a bit of Abbas-Mustan and we just watched Ajnabee.

Silly Sunday: 3 Ideas for the Alia-Kat-PC Movie! Amar Akbar Anthony Remake and Others

I’m gonna get back on a SCHEDULE!!! Through out the pandemic, keeping to a blog schedule has kept me sane. Throwing it out the window during moving week was NOT HEALTHY.

My Dad and I Have Been on a Bad 1970s Disaster Movie Binge (Poseidon, Airport, etc.)! What Disaster Movie Could We Make in Hindi Film?

The thing about 1970s disaster movies is that they are so SILLY. It’s not like “a tornado!” or “an earthquake!” it’s all “this very fancy modern something or other has one small flaw and now a variety of famous actors must work together to escape”.

I Have a Mature Love Story Idea for SRK, Or Ranveer-Dips!!!

My parents made me watch a movie from their Youth last night and gosh darn it, I liked it. I resent it so much when my parents make me watch things and then I like them. Also, hummus. I was perfectly happy not liking hummus without tasting it until they made me taste it. Anyway, the movie is Starting Over and it’s a really simple idea of a man trying to figure out his life post-divorce.
