Sunday WatchAlong: What Will Cheer Me Up? Tara vs Bilal? A SRK Movie? Something Else?

Ugh, I am grump today. I am almost never grumpy, but today I am. It’s been overcast for 6 days straight, and the city is finally fixing our street which is good news but also means there is this irritating construction sound background noise all the time. So I think our Sunday WatchAlong needs to be something SUPER HAPPY.

Sunday WatchAlong: Dhanak! For SRK! 7am Chicago Time!

My goodness, yesterday was exhaaaaaauuuuusting. 8 hours cold physical labor interspersed with cold standing around and talking to relatives. Which is why I went to bed almost immediately after getting home and walking the dog (at 8pm! Which is exactly 12 hours after I walked the dog right before leaving home) and now am all bright and chipper early in the morning. And only slightly guilty for falling behind in my review schedule.

Sunday WatchAlong: Dhanak at 7am Chicago Time Sunday for Shahrukh Month! Unless No One Can Make It!

This weekend is super busy for me, but in a good way. Saturday is the annual “close up the lake house” day, which is a fun day outside in the crisp weather. And Sunday my friends and I made a date to go to the zoo and see the Halloween decorations and the new baby lion (so cute!). So the only time I have for a watchalong, is pre-Zoo on Sunday morning. And just a shorter film. Thus, Dhanak!

Weekend WatchAlong: Saturday or Sunday Morning? Satyamev Jayate 2 or A Gentleman?

Happy Thursday! And Happy Gandhi Jayante Weekend! In honor of which, I think we have to watch a big stupid action movie, right? Satyamev Jayate 2 I’ve heard is epicly delightfully stupid, and A Gentleman is secretly BRILLIANT and FINALLY has subtitles on Hulu.

Weekend WatchAlong: Miss Braganza! Are You Still Around? If So, You Get to Pick Time and Movie! If Not, Dangerous Ishq on Saturday Morning!

Happy Autumnal Equinox! For once it is truly the start of fall in Chicago, it was 80 degrees yesterday and dropped to 60 today, and looks generally gorgeous outside. Makes me excited about staying in and watching a cozy movie this weekend.

Saturday/Sunday Evening or Monday Morning WatchAlong: Anyone Available?

This is the weekend of my insane cross-country driving trip (assuming my COVID tests from yesterday come back negative, now my brain has decided to worry about that). Anyway, I’m planning to drive all day and then stop early evening to get a hotel before I wear myself out, so I could do a watchalong Saturday or Sunday evening. Or early Monday Morning, my last driving day when I will have earned a slow start.

Sunday WatchAlong: 11am Chicago Time! The Pirate! Available for Rent for a Small Price on All Major Streaming Services! Also, It’s Ridiculous

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay, an American musical! So glad I get to share this one with you. And it is good for y’all to see it, because this is one of many classic American musicals that influenced both Farah Khan and Prabhudeva in their work. For real, Farah even acknowledges this one in particular as one of her hidden tributes in “Dhoom Tana”.

No Sunday WatchAlong! Instead Let’s Brainstorm Happy Calming Weekend Activities

Well, the week started with one of my co-workers going out for surgery meaning we were down a person, continued with a sewage backup in the basement, then on to the electricity flickering, plus general heat related exhaustion and misery. I’ve finally made it to the weekend and I think I need to focus on doing anything that will make me NOT spin out with anxiety. So, no watchalong (since almost no one could join anyway), instead we shall all think of nice things to do for ourselves this weekend.
