Box Office Report: Jagga Jasoos Lays an Ostrich Sized Egg

I miss Tubelight!  There are no good Jagga Jasoos puns.  I had to full back on jokes related to actual content.  Blech!  At least if Munna Michael fails next week I have that whole rich thread of Michael Jackson song titles to play with.  Toilet: Ek Prem Katha, that’s going to be just the best week!  (as always, figures courtesy of rentrack by way of bollywoodhungama)

Tubelight Review (No Spoilers): Not a Good Movie

The title really says it all.  If you are wondering whether you might want to see this movie, you don’t.  It is not a good film.  If you want me to talk more about how it is not good with spoilers, you can read the other review.  If you want me to talk more about how it is not good without spoilers, you can read on.

Tubelight Review (SPOILERS): Read This Instead of Seeing the Movie

Not a good movie.  Really really not.  Terrible script, and casting mistakes.  And then a lot of money poured on top which just serves to make the flaws stand out even more.  Like bright lighting on a really really ugly statue.  Anyway, save your money and skip the film, just read this instead!  Which I almost never say, but in this case, yes.  It’s the best thing to do.

Happy Day Before Tubelight!!! Final News and Predictions (WARNING! Dangerous Cuteness Levels!!!!)

Happy day before Tubelight!  I think I have picked my optimal showtime.  Later show, but closer theater, so I can still be home at a reasonable hour.  Same theater where I saw Bahubali opening night, Sultan for the second time, and Fan opening night.  You will notice from that list that this theater only plays the biggest releases.  Which allows me to make some box office predictions!  Oh, and I also needed to do a post because Salman just released a video of Epic Cuteness.

Happy Tubelight Week! Veer, and Sohail and Salman Playing Brothers

This is a bit of a stretch of a connection, but I’ve been wanting an excuse to write about Veer without really writing about Veer (really writing about it means re-watching the film, making mental notes, going through every moment of the plot in detail, etc. etc.  Not just picking a few themes to discuss), and this is as good as any.  It’s not just Sohail and Salman playing brothers, it’s also Sohail and Salman in a historical setting, so I guess that’s good enough, right?  It’s kind of Tubelight related.

Monday Morning Questions Post, 2 Weeks Before Tubelight!

Eid is on a Saturday this year, right?  Which is very convenient for me!  I can do a Tubelight first day-first show without having to take time off work.  Even better, thanks to the time difference and convenience for theater owners, it might be playing in the US on Friday first show at the regular time I would see it anyway!

Shahrukh’s Movie Has a Stupid Title, Tubelight Has a Touching Song, and I Still Don’t Know What’s Going on in Jagga Jasoos

I take one day off twitter, and everything happens!  It’s not fair!  Shahrukh’s movie has a title, and a bunch of new posters, new Tubelight song is up which changes the plot, and Jagga Jasoos…..well, that one doesn’t really change anything, but it sure perplexes me!

Upcoming Movies! Spyder and Victoria & Abdul and Tubelight

This is thanks to two commentators, Filmilibrarian who reminded me about Victoria & Abdul, and Niki who sent me the Spyder teaser seconds after it dropped.  Oh, and then Salman Khan who tweeted the new Tubelight song this morning.

Tubelight Trailer! A Pacifist War Movie

Sorry sorry, it was out a few days ago and I missed it.  Blame Salman, not me!  I follow him on twitter and everything, and this was not mentioned!  At least, not mentioned enough, I was able to miss it.  Salman!  You’ve got to tweet this things like a dozen times to make sure they get noticed!

Tubelight Song! Such Big News, It Gets Its Own Post!

I was thinking about doing a kind of combined post with some of the other new songs releases I may have missed.  But, firstly, I don’t know that there are that many big new song releases, everything is entering the Ramadan duldrums right now.  And anyway, Salman is such big news that he doesn’t need anything else.

Quick Tubelight Speculation Post

Thanks to Salman’s Being Salman app, my phone has been going “boop-boop” and alerting me every time he puts out a new Tubelight image.  I keep waiting for a teaser or something more than just a poster, but that doesn’t seem like it is happening any time soon, so I will work with the poster.

News Round-Up: Salman Makes Big Profit on Sultan, Announces New Heroine for Next Film. And Ritiesh is a Gentlemen. Oh, and Shahrukh’s next role might be AWESOME!!!

I really wanted to do 3 news stories about Salman, so I could have a nice structure for my headline, but no luck!  And also no luck in only doing one on him and 2 on someone else, because his 2 stories today are too big to ignore.  And then I had to shove a 4th story in there because the Shahrukh rumor is too good to ignore.  It’s all out of balance!!!  Oh well.
