Weekend WatchAlong: What Day, What Time, What SRK Movie?
Naina, a new commentator, is SRK obsessed and unable to make our usual watchalong times. And I know there are others who like to join but can’t at the usual times. So just to shake things up, let me know if you can/want to join, if Saturday or Sunday works better for you, and approximately what time (midday, morning, afterning, evening) Chicago time works for you.Continue reading

Sunday WatchAlong: Double XXL? Tara and Bilal? Some Other Movie I Should Watch?
I was gonna get better this week about watching and reviewing new movies, and then literally half the staff at work got sick (’tis the season for colds, apparently), so I barely have time to write this post. WatchAlong now looks like my best bet for seeing some of the cool films y’all are recommending!Continue reading

Sunday WatchAlong: 8am Chicago Time Sunday! Chennai Express! Because SRK is Christmas in Human Form
One of the lucky few DCIB readers who met Shahrukh in real life described the sensation as like Christmas morning. So it makes total sense to call an SRK movie a “Christmas movie”. Right? Or at least, I think it makes sense to all DCIBians.Continue reading
WatchAlong: White Christmas or Chennai Express?
I’m only giving you two options! And they are very very different from each other. White Christmas I think we watched last year and people enjoyed it more than they expected. Also, I love it. So we can rewatch. And Chennai Express is Chennai Express.Continue reading

Sunday WatchAlong: Dilwale at 8am Chicago Time! Unless No One Shows Up in the First 15 minutes and Then Canceled!
Okay, I’ve made a decision! I’m going big, Dilwale! If other folks show up, it will be super super fun. And if no one shows up by 15 after, I get to spend the time wrapping and packing presents instead and we watch Dilwale next week!Continue reading
DCIB Christmas WatchAlong: Dilwale! Or, Something More Traditionally Christmassy. Up to You!!!
I was thinking, Dilwale is a Christmas movie, right? Sort of? And also an Indian film which is technically the Brief for this blog. On the other hand, if you don’t care and are willing to indulge my wild stabs at Western films, I have other silly American Christmas options in my head.Continue reading
