I’ve decided! It was almost a tie, so I went with the movie I most want to see again. Also the movie I most want to sell other people on watching because it is sooooooooooooooo good and no one seems to see it.

Drive Review: Okay, Now I See Why Karan Had to Netflix It!

I decided to ruthlessly use my friends to make myself watch this. The pickier people in my weekly movie night group canceled this week, so I forced myself and the less-picky people to finally watch Drive. It’s a nice solid movie in almost all ways, but I did finally spot the problem that explains why Karan had to make the business decision to delay it, and finally release on Netflix.

SSR Inspired Discussion Post: Is it Good or Bad to Look for a Living Human Cause of a Suicide?

IMPORTANT RULE: on this post, you CANNOT discuss anything related to Sushant Singh Rajput’s death. I will edit any comment that includes details related to that tragedy. That is still in process, there are no clear answers to anything, it is not a valid example in a debate. But you can talk about absolutely anything else, including personal experiences. Suicide is a good thing for people to talk about, I think. It removes the shame from it, and some of the power.

Sunday ReRun: Chhichore! A Nice College Comedy With A Surprising Ending

Well, that was a better movie than I expected! Not super duper great, but enjoyable and pleasant and well made with a very nice message. About a billion times better than Mission Mangal, for instance. And thus, deserving of a Sunday rerun post for those of you who missed it. Especially when Street Dancer 3D has us feeling all warm about Shraddha Kapoor.

Chhichhore Review (SPOILERS): Why it Is Important To Talk Honestly To Your Kids About Your Life

I really really like the message of this movie! And it is a message that the trailers and advertisements for some reason didn’t make clear. I’m gonna spoil it in this post, but I honestly think that being spoiled might make you more interested in watching the film than going in unspoiled. But, you know, you do you! Read this review if you want to remain unspoiled.

Kedarnath Review (No Spoilers): A Great Debut for Sara, Until the Very End

This is a hard review to write, because I don’t want to spoil the movie, but then on the other hand I need to be give you a clue of what kind of a film it will be so you can make an informed decision about whether or not to watch it.  I guess I will just say that I really liked the opening and the middle, but the ending did not work for me AT ALL.  So if you are able to enjoy a movie in pieces, can separate out sections, you will enjoy it a lot.  But if you can’t block out bits and pieces, (like me), then the bitter ugly bit is going to end up ruining the rest of it.  So, BE AWARE!

Fun fun!  Song songs!  I don’t know how these movies will be, but the songs are really lovely.  Too bad it’s after Thanksgiving so I am not allowed to listen to anything but Christmas music until the 26th (allowed by myself, I have very strict rules for me).
