  • Om Shanti Om

    Om Shanti Om 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Aug, 2016

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    My very first Bollywood venture and I really didn't know what to expect. I have to watch this for my Asian Cinemas studies course, which is covering Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Iran and India. I was daunted by the running time on this film (it's the longest film in my course by a fair margin) but glad I decided not to skip this week and dive on in to this.

    Om Shanti Om exceeded expectations in the pure vibrance…


    ENDLESS 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 19 Aug, 2016

    A stunning minimalist effort that serves as one of the greatest visual albums of all time. Thank you Frank for making us wait and reminding us about the importance of patience. Thank you for this stunning film. Thank you for the incredible music you give us.

    Thank you for being the pop star we need, but don't deserve.

    For too long I thought that this wasn't perfect (I'm scared of bandwagons). But it's actually kinda perfect.

    About Time 2013

    Offensively melodramatic and so full of plot holes. The film attempts to be a quirky existential romance but results in a muddled mess of haphazard science fiction and good ol' English charm.

    So rubbish. This film made me really mad.
