War Review (SPOILERS): Throw Logic Out the Window and Enjoy

Don’t read this review!!!!! This is for people who have seen the movie and want a place to discuss it. The twists are so good/bad (as in, completely impossible and jaw droppingly dumb and yet entertaining) that you REALLY REALLY shouldn’t spoil yourself. Read this review to get pumped for the film, then come back here to discuss it after watching. Oh, and if you aren’t interested in a big dumb action movie, don’t even bother reading this review, the plot summary alone will bore you and infuriate you.

War Review (No Spoilers): Gayer Than Top Gun

Yes, I am aware that is an extreme statement in the headline. But I stand by it! Tiger and Hrithik have successfully out-gayed Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer. If that sentence intrigues and excites you, you should watch this movie. If it makes you go “huh? wha? Top Gun was gay?” than this film is operating on a whole other level that you may never grasp, and this review is not for you. SO GAY!!!!

Sunday ReRun: Befikre, A Light Happy French Romance With an Indian Accent

No big massive full summary coming for Befikre!  Partly because Dear Zindagi exhausted me, partly because my sense is that my commentators aren’t as interested in a massive discussion of this movie, as they are of other movies.  But mostly because I don’t think it is analyzable, to take it apart would be to destroy it.

Silly Sunday: New Years Time Travel!

Happy New Year’s Eve!!!!  Obviously, I have to do a theme post.  I considered stories that revolved around New Years celebrations, but then I wasn’t sure what that would look like in India, so instead I am going with my sister’s suggestion and doing New Year’s combined with time travel.

News Round-Up: Padmavati to Padmavat and Vaani to Shraddha

Well, it finally got approved.  And I kind of agree with everything the Censors did.  At least, as it is presented by them and the spin they are putting on it.  I am sure there are all kinds of political realities on the ground that I am missing which makes them not so great.  Oh, and I think we can aaaaaaaaaaalllllllllllllllllll agree that swapping Vaani for Shraddha is a disaster of epic proportions.

Befikre Review (SPOILERS): Like a Souffle, I Don’t Want To Break It Apart, Because That Would Destroy It

No big massive full summary coming for Befikre!  Partly because Dear Zindagi exhausted me, partly because my sense is that my commentators aren’t as interested in a massive discussion of this movie, as they are of other movies.  But mostly because I don’t think it is analyzable, to take it apart would be to destroy it.

Befikre Review (NO SPOILERS): Adi’s Little French Crepe of a Film

I was very very nervous about how this movie would work, but it totally worked!  I was afraid it was going to be a big Aditya Chopra movie taking the industry in another new direction where I didn’t want it to go.  But turns out, it’s just a little Aditya Chopra movie, a nice harmless little thing that just happens to be made really really well.
