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!Continue reading

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.Continue reading

Shahrukh Month Silly Sunday: Spooky Sunday! What Kind of Ghost Movie Should SRK Be In? Classic Horror, Not Romance Like Paheli
Shahrukh Khan Ghost Movie! I SHOULD be writing my Little Things reviews, but I don’t wanna. I already did stuff today, subbed as a teacher for the church youth group (do teens just not talk?

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.Continue reading
Silly Sunday: Queen Latifah Rom-Com Remakes!!!!!
WARNING! I am going to be spoiling the movies Last Christmas and Just Wright. But, on the other hand, not really spoiling them because they are delightfully predictable and pleasant as all rom-coms should be. It’s about the journey, not the destination.Continue reading

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”.Continue reading
