Box Office: Race 3 Loses the Race

Yes, that is a click bait title.  I’m not even sorry.  Because, it’s true!  It did really terrible box office, for a major release, especially compared with the other films that are in week 3 and 6.  (as always, figures from bollywoodhungama courtesy of renttrack)

Box Office: Padmavat Drops Down Under

Well, this is a boring week. Padmavat continues as you would expect based on last week. Bhaagamathie too, everything is kind of predictable. Except for Australia! And New Zealand. What is going on with those kooky Kiwis and Aussies? (figures courtesy of bollywoodhungama, as always)

Box Office/Hindi Film 101: Tiger Zinda Nahin, and the History of the China Box Office

Did I do that right?  Anyway, what I mean to say in the title is that the Tiger box office is finally dropping off.  And nothing else has shown up to pick up the slack, so it is yet another bleak and dreary week at the box office.  Well, except for China where Indian films reign supreme.

FilmFare Winners! What Does It All Mean?

Well, the FilmFare Awards happened.  We didn’t get to see it because, unlike the Oscar producers, the FilmFare people are too smart to do a live broadcast.  We’ll get to see a version that is edited down to just the good bits on whatever channel buys the satellite rights.  Which also changes a bit who might be winning these awards.

Tiger Breaks Into Global Top Ten By Cheating (As Have Most Other Films In Recent Years)

Well, Tiger has begun to drop off significantly.  Which means now is the week when we can start comparing it with other overseas hits and see how good it really did, removed from all the hysteria of the “finally a big box office hit in 2017!” coverage.

Tiger Zinda Hai Review (SPOILERS): A Lot of Style Hiding a Big Ball of Nothing

As I already said in my no spoilers review, this was not a fun movie.  And not a movie I liked.  And, I think, not actually a good movie.  But a movie with all the trappings to fool people into thinking it is good.

Tiger Zinda Hai Review (No SPOILERS): Not a Fun Move

Well shoot, that was a disappointment!  And I feel kind of bad because I dragged my sister and cousin along with me.  On the other hand, I am also happy that I had them there for moral support.  Because this was very dark and very stressful and not really fun at all!

Happy Salman Week! Ek Tha Tiger Before Tiger Zinda Hai

I saw this movie 3 times in theaters, mostly because I wanted to watch the Jab Tak Hain Jaan teaser over and over again.  But also for itself, it’s a very well-made fun movie.  I forgot just how well made and fun until I re-watched it just now.

Happy Salman Week! Kick, Salman as an International Avenger

I finally watched Kick!  Thanks to Hotstar and needing something mindless to play in the background while I cleaned.  It’s okay, mostly interesting for seeing Salman’s version of an action avenger type. (yes yes, I know it is a remake so it wasn’t originally supposed to be Salman)

Happy Salman Week! Lucky: No Time For Love, Salman in Love in Snow

Poor Salman!  Once again getting the short end of the stick.  Only 5 days of pre-big movie release celebration.  Christmas, and my killer flu, got him all delayed.  Oh well, Salman is also super nice, so I am sure he would be fine with my spending my days in bed and/or with relatives instead of celebrating him to the utmost.

New Tiger Zinda Hai Song! Very Romantic

Very romantic in a particular way, with Salman putting together and surprising Katrina with wonderful things.  Which makes me interested in their character dynamics a little bit.  Especially because I just re-watched Ek Tha Tiger and it fits nicely with how their relationship was established in that.

First Tiger Zinda Hai Song! I’m Not in Love With It, But I am Excited For the Movie

Literally the second I fell asleep, poof!  This was posted!  And I stayed up late last night too!  Salman must have a Margaret-tracker that tells him when I fall asleep, and that is when he posts the things.

SALMAN TRAILER!!!!! Tiger Zinda Hai, and Salman’s Social Conscience Zinda Hai Too

Maybe it was because I hadn’t had breakfast yet, but this was an action film trailer that actually made me tear up a little.  Okay, almost certainly it was because I hadn’t had breakfast yet.

Three News Items to Start You Talking: RK Studios Fire, Salman Gets an Award, Tiger Zinda Hai Wraps

I used to do news posts all the time, remember?  The problem is, I can only provide legitimate commentary if I am constantly on top of things.  And I just ran out of time to check 3 different news sources everyday and be that aware of every little thing.  So the only news posts I can do are boring factual ones, and then you guys have to provide the commentary in the comments. (this post comes to you from a Wisconsin public library, turns out I can’t resist blogging even while out of town)
