Silly Sunday: Queen Latifah Rom-Com Remakes!!!!!

WARNING! I am going to be spoiling the movies Last Christmas and Just Wright. But, on the other hand, not really spoiling them because they are delightfully predictable and pleasant as all rom-coms should be. It’s about the journey, not the destination.

Shakuntala Devi Review (SPOILERS): Non-Conventional Woman Made Conventional Film Character

Well, this was a dull movie. And historically inaccurate, mostly in your usual gender normative/casteism/classism way. But also a really WEIRD homophobic thing. Just like, SO ODD. So odd that I am going to give it it’s own post for us to discuss, so look forward to that! (homosexuality post up now, go here to learn more about and discuss that aspect)

Shakuntala Devi Review (No Spoilers): A Biopic That Manages To Be Both Inaccurate and Boring

Well, this is a BORING movie! At least ridiculous Mahanati had some nice crazy melodrama in it, and ridiculous Padman had the fun invented Sonam Kapoor character, and ridiculous Rustom had uniforms. This is bad BAD history, bad BAD filmmaking, and also DULL. Blech. I’ll put it this way, only watch it if you enjoy Vidya so much you would be happy seeing her recite the phone book.

Queens of Sex Competition: Rani Versus Vidya, Who is Better at Sex on Screen?

This is so HARD! They both have a natural joyful quality on screen that is so much more sexual than air brushed and perfect actresses. And they are both really good actresses who lose themselves in the moment and make you believe they are real people feeling real things. But which is better?

Mission Mangal Review (No Spoilers): Akshay, SHUT. UP.

I think this might have been the most unpleasant movie I have ever watched. It was like having wooden stakes driven under my nails for 20 hours. Needless to say, I do not recommend it to you. And if you read my posts regularly, you know that it is a rare thing for me not to encourage you to see a movie, so take it seriously.

Friday Classics: Eklavya, a Movie that Comes in Just at the Ending

Happy Friday!  I managed to get through the week somehow!  Well, almost, I’ve got one more day left.  But yesterday was the day when the staff went from 4 to 1 (me).  Today and Monday it will be back up to 2, and then by Tuesday it will be all the way to 4 again (woo).
