Bhoot Police Review (SPOILERS): A Lot of Stuff Happens, But Nothing That Means Much

There’s really not much to spoil here. A lot happens, and yet I didn’t really care about any of it? And I suspect every viewer would feel the same way.

Toofan Review (SPOILERS): Let Us All Sympathize With the Poor Bigot! The Fragile Bigot! Who Cannot Handle New Ideas or He Will EXPLODE!!!!

It’s true, the movies have shown me. The old white man in America who has to painfully and carefully learn that, maybe, not all racism is good. Poor Lord Crawley in Downton Abbey who has to consider that maybe class distinctions are sometimes unfair. And of course all the Hindu patriarchs in Indian films who have to suffer being told that, sometimes, maybe, non-Hindus and women have a right to live.

Haseena Dillruba Review (SPOILERS): Well, This Went DELIGHTFULLY Over the Top!!!!

I saw a new movie! In theaters! Like in Olden Times! And like in Olden Times, I am doing a whole separate “Spoiler” review just in case you want to watch it. If you don’t want to watch it, read this review anyway, I’m gonna get all deep about gender and Delhi versus Bombay and fun stuff like that.

Roohi Review (SPOILERS): The Superheroine Origin Story I Always Wanted and Never Knew It!!!!

Yaaaaaay, a SPOILERS review!!!! If you just don’t have the energy to watch this movie but are curious about it anyway. Or if you can’t do horror but want to know what it is like.

Coolie No. 1 Review (SPOILERS): Silly, Happy, Farce in Which the Only Real Thing is Love

I betcha that people are going to call this movie not-feminist. Because it stars Varun Dhawan and has songs and bright colors, and therefore must be misogynist. Only darkly lit serious movies can be feminist, you know? But what I enjoyed most about this movie is the way it never made me cringe. The female characters were just people. Not saying it’s a great movie, but really, there’s nothing wrong with it! It’s fun!

Ginny Weds Sunny Review (SPOILERS): Why Does Vikrant Massay Have to Turn Into a Big Old Jerk?

I watched it! Out of curiosity after I got super mixed reports from y’all. If you like light silly farcical rom-coms made on the cheap with up and down quality, then you will enjoy this movie, whether or not you Spoil yourself here. It’s not the destination, it’s the journey. And if you don’t like them (especially with a flawed hero character), then you can still spoil yourself!
