Happy Saturday! I am laying in bed with my foot elevated 8 inches above my hips thinking about how the heck I am going to get my morning coffee. That should keep me busy for a few hours at least, and in the meantime y’all can chat.Continue reading
Two videos that we should look at both for content, and context. Since they are both “disrupting” the industry.Continue reading
Sid M! Who knew! He made a little joke, and his hair looks fabulous, all messy and grown out.Continue reading
Love Nivin, love Trisha, okay with The Beatles, and yet I don’t love-love this movie. It’s a good movie with a nice ending, you should watch it, it’s just not my favorite somehow.Continue reading
I can’t even really tell you why, I just love this movie. And it’s on einthusan! You all should watch it and then come back here and thank me.Continue reading
This was one of my early reviews, and very early in my Tamil journey, so forgive all the many many problems!Continue reading
Well, everyone is making bad decisions this week! And just because their big grown up celebrities doesn’t mean they are too big for me to correct.Continue reading
Is that title clear? I’m so tired, but I really want to have this discussion because I think it is interesting. What are the movies with a female love interest who is more complex than your usual “pretty face, good girl” kind of heroine?Continue reading
This is a very well-made movie. And confirms my feeling that Trisha is secretly a brilliant actress, as good as Parvathy, but less likely to be given really good roles (partly because the Tamil industry just isn’t as good for female characters as the Malayalam). And also confirms my feeling that Vijay Sethupathi was put on this earth for women who like big natural bodies and sensitive souls. Oh, and this is a very VERY long review, once I get into the SPOILERS section. Watch out!Continue reading
(did you think I didn’t remember I skipped last Tuesday? I did! I felt terrible! So this is to make up) I think I may have finally figured out what I like about Gautham Menon films. It took a while, because they seem like the kind of film I shouldn’t like, perfect heroes and opaque heroines. But with this film, I think I have cracked it. Oh, and also, Ajith looks goooo-ooooood with grey hair! Which is neither here nor there, but I felt it should be acknowledged.
What an interesting masala of movies (that tracks, right? I was going to use “melange”, but that’s just French for “mix”, so why not “masala” instead?)! My Netflix envelope claimed it was a remake of some American movie called Assassins. But that’s just one of many many films that went into creating this one.
I knew this movie was a big deal, and I knew it was inspired/related to Maine Pyar Kiya. But I didn’t know how innocent it would be! Innocent like Maine Pyar Kiya, but even more so.
