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.

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.

The Day Of Lurve

I didn’t know about Valentine’s Day till I was in elementary school in the US. It didn’t mean much once I came back to India. Well it still doesn’t mean much because I’ve only celebrated it about a handful times in my adult life. The husband isn’t the roses (red or otherwise)and candy kinda guy….

Holiday Bloglet

Books read since start of holiday on 23rd night: 4. New mystery writers discovered since start of holiday: 3 Movies watched: half of 3 Drinks consumed: 2! (I know right?) Local cuisine sampled: 2xs Yelled at offspring: lesser times than I thought possible. Got massaged: 1x Cursed out loud: 3x Songs looped in head: Never…

Movie Review: Rustom

It’s good to watch movies. Good or bad. Gives one an idea about the kind of things film makers are thinking about and if they do have the pulse of their audience. With Rustom they succeeded in breaking out of the run-of-the-mill Bollywood masala grist and yet failed to craft a taut film that makes…

Under Siege- Always A Good Idea

Most movie reviews start with a title that lets you know that there’s a review coming your way. Mine hasn’t done that. Tough. Steven Seagal may be bloated and a Putin-loving, firearms-promoting Buddhist but many, many, many years ago he was slightly attractive (to Moi) and was kicking ass in his own minimalistic way. I…

Movie Review-Captain America: Civil War

It’s been AGES since I saw a movie on the same day it released. Probably not since 04 but then that’s too far into the past for me to dredge up the when and wherefores. I generally enjoy the offerings from the Marvel universe. Captain America is the typical boy scout but he’s easy on…
