Shahrukh Summer Discussion Post: Which is the Worst, Dilwale-Happy New Year-Zero?

Oh boy, you ready to get HEATED? We all know that Shahrukh did a few films that were not so great in the past few years. But which is the worst of them all?

Shahrukh Summer: Happy Endings for Sad Shahrukh Movies

I don’t actually think these are “better” endings, I just like happy endings, even if they aren’t true to the rest of the narrative. Every film should end with a marriage and a baby and a happy reprise of the title song. So in my headcanon, these are how these movies end. Happy happy!

Shahrukh Summer: Choose Your Own Ending! Which Of these Alternate Endings Do You Prefer for Dear Zindagi, Kabhi Alvida Na Kehna, Jab Tak Hai Jaan, Zero?

This isn’t a “fixing” the movie post. Maybe you think they are okay as they are. But if you HAD to choose an alternative ending, which one of these would you pick?

Zero Analysis Post: A Doubling Story, Two People Who Make Each Other Complete

I’ve now seen this movie twice, with a nice long gap between viewings, which kind of lets me shake things out in my head in a better order. And I have watched the slightly clearer Netflix edit along with the theatrical edit. So I think it is time for me to consider what the film was supposed to be about.

Every Addition, Subtraction, and Change to the Theatrical Version of Zero Versus the Netflix Version and How They Change Things

Well, this was a grumpy day. I kept starting and stopping Zero while watching the cleaning person clean and realizing that the only person who cleans to my standards is me and it is VERY FRUSTRATING watching someone else clean not quite as well. Watching Zero again did not necessarily make me less grumpy. Although at least I had the little treasure hunt for the things that were changed (why? how? what?) to keep me busy!

Zero Review (SPOILERS): TOO MUCH PLOT!!!!

First, most importantly, ANGIE! And all other Maddy Fans! Maddy is in it for about 15 minutes cumulatively and all he does is stand there looking solid and sensitive in glasses with shaggy hair. Barely has a character. But looks quite good. Everyone else: this movie was a disappointment, but probably still more enjoyable if you go in fresh than if you go in SPOILED. This review is for those who absolutely cannot see it in theaters, or who have already seen it and want to discuss.

Monday Morning Questions: What Do You Want to Ask Me the Week of Zero????

HAPPY SHAHRUKH MOVIE RELEASE WEEK!!!!!!!!  The most wonderful week of the year!  And blessed is the year in which it occurs more than once (2017).  This has been a long hard slog, getting through 2018 with no release AT ALL for more than 12 months.  But the dark time is finally over!  Light is coming!  Our Lord and Savior will arrive again on December 21!  And I guess also on December 25th, for those who follow other faiths.

Saturday Small Talk: What Do You Want to Talk About While I Sleep In?

I am a lazy bear today!  Stayed up too late seeing Kedarnath and then trying to keep my eyes open to write a review, on top of a series of late nights and busy times.  So today I am giving myself some time to just do absolutely nothing.  Except pick up my rugs from the cleaners that I can only get to on Saturdays.  But otherwise, NOTHING!

Saturday Small Talk: Which of These Stories Surprises You LEAST?

Happy Saturday!  Today is the day I do NOTHING.  I am very excited about this.  Of course, Dog Hazel will still drag me outside for our daily walks, and I should probably buy milk, but otherwise NOTHING.  And you can join me in my nothing by lazily talking about gossip stories.

Trailers again! Vishwaroop 2, Loveratri, and Zero Teaser

More trailers!  I tell you, Eid is exhausting.  Plus there’ve been fireworks on my street the past couple of nights, which is also exhausting.  But it’s all worth it, because THANK GOODNESS Zero is looking a little better.
