Friday Watchalong on Saturday BECAUSE I AM GETTING VACCINATED!!! Oh, and We’re Watch Chandni

This is all very exciting and last minute, the National Guard just opened up some mass vaccination centers in IL, and if I drive for 6 hours there and 6 hours back I could get a shot TOMORROW. So I took the slot, told my boss I was gonna be out of office, asked my parents to dogsit, and called my doctor to make sure she could give me a note to confirm I qualify under the new very very loose IL State restrictions. All of this in like the last hour. And then I thought “woops! I have to reschedule Friday watchalong!!!”

Or none of the above! I know the flavor of the movie I want to watch on Friday, I want one that tastes like silliness and sunshine, and that kind of free feeling of walking down the street and smiling and smelling the asphalt and hearing the traffic go by and swinging your purse. But I don’t know what movie that is.

Gumrah: Bob Christo Sex Scene, BOB CHRISTO SEX SCENE!!!!!!

I could talk about Mahesh Bhatt, or Sanjay Dutt, or Sridevi of course. Or the Hong Kong setting or the crazy plot twists. But for the small community of DCIB, and the even smaller sub-section of DCIB that would be interested in an average film of the mid-90s, I feel that BOB CHRISTO SEX SCENE is what is most likely to get you excited.

Bad Girls Month Tamil: Puli! Watch Sridevi Sweep About in Crazy Crowns!

This is a silly silly movie. If you feel the need for total escapism and fantasy and just wacky weird insanity, this movie is here for you. Also, it isn’t very good. Oh, and I know I am all late and backed up on my reviews, I’m gonna catch up this weekend. It’s just been a lazy week.
