The 80s&90s

Those were some fun decades…especially in the way movies were made. This last week I watched some movies I had DVRd and utterly enjoyed the blast of nostalgia! I started with Die Hard…a movie you can never go wrong with. Whether you’re burping a baby, fighting with a spouse, feeling angst or anything else this…

Movie Review: Arjun Reddy

After a long time, 10 years to be precise, I watched a Telugu movie- Arjun Reddy and enjoyed it quite a bit. As a person who doesn’t have too much fluency in the language, scratch that…I can make do if I have to, else I nod my head along to pretty much everything; I didn’t…

Movie Review: Wonder Woman

I’m going to lead with: my experience wasn’t wondrous at all. I have a bad habit of reading the Wiki and IMDB posts thoroughly before watching a movie, rather than just going with the flow where most movies are concerned. When I read that Wonder Woman received critical acclaim as well as mass approval, my…

Movie Review: The Shallows

I know why this movie got good reviews: Pretty girl wearing bare minimum required to avoid censorship. Gorgeous locales and alluring waters. A creature that everyone loves to hate viz The Great White. The mysterious solitary seagull. No bizarre sharky behavior barring well…being too chomp-chomp-chomp! Eloquent wasn’t it? But snark aside so many things are…

Movie Review: Dam Sharks

I was bored. I like sharks. There was a movie playing and I watched it. And now my senses ouch.

Guilt-Free Goa

We have our own version of Vegas in India…G-O-A…what happens in Goa stays in Goa and Goa seems to be built for everything you’d do while you’re away from home, boundaries, restrictions and the humdrum of the everyday. How else can one explain the most prim and proper of “aunties” who is carrying enough weight…

All My Pretty Possessions

I love my stuff. I love getting new things. I like discovering how they work, am ecstatic when they work the way they’re supposed to and most of all I love how it makes me feel when I use them. My all time favorites have been books and cameras…of course I keep buying knickknacks that…

The Malady of Summer Holidays

I’ve noticed that there’s a strange and inexplicable condition that happens to kids, especially mine over the summer holidays. They become deaf, louder, motor movements mimic being like marionettes with their strings cut or like mini Boomerang videos. Polar opposites but somehow they seem to be able to switch between them effortlessly enough. The specific…

Of Mat Jumps and Face Packs…

I don’t consciously try and make the blog titles esoteric or cryptic even..they just pop out of my head, all baked and ready to go. Quite like how this happened. And in case anyone is interested (Pshaw! Yeah right…) how that happened…read it right here. Onto the actual stuff I wanted to convey…I’ve been doing…

Saturday Bloglet#2

Meanie Mommy recommends pretending to be seriously and totally grossed out when your offspring threatens to pour slime on your ankles and legs.  The child will pour and rub like a zealous slime-pourer and rubber and you will get a lovely little massage from those soft little hands. Accompanied by wicked cackles from a munchkin…

Movie Review: Logan

Wolverine. Aged. Not Healing at the speed of light. Dying….oops! Spoiler alert! Logan is the most extreme addition to the Marvel comic-movie universe till date. I’d say it leaves Deadpool behind solely because there’s just one of Deadpool and there’s more than one individual who bares their claws in this movie. Else Deadpool was slicker,…

Movie Review: Tridev

A chance encounter with an 80’s movie gets me laughing and nostalgic and being thoroughly entertained.
