Kahaani

Kahaani: Impressively slick/ implausibly entertaining. Balan is quite the star-actress. Loved Chattopadhyay, Siddiqui & legend Bob Biswas!

Ishaqzaade

Ishaqzaade: Brave attempt to do something new with an old story. Great work by Natasha Rastogi and the charismatic Parineeti Chopra.

RIP Frank Pierson

RIP Frank Pierson. Writer of Cat Ballou, Cool Hand Luke, and Dog Day Afternoon. I think that's the very definition of a life well-lived.

Housefull 2

Housefull 2: Wretched film even by the low standards of Bollywood slapstick. It's nice to see Mithun Chakraborty back & better than ever!

RIP Sherman Hemsley

RIP Sherman Hemsley. Man, did I love The Jeffersons growing up. They definitely don't make 'em like they used to. Sigh...

Ernie Els Wins the British Open!

Amazing & completely unexpected win at the #BritishOpen for my old fave #Ernie #BigEasy #Els! Feel bad for #AdamScott though. Poor chap.

The Dark Knight Rises

The Dark Knight Rises: Mind-blowing end to an incredible trilogy! Chris Nolan may have overreached but when you're that good why quibble ;-)

RIP Rajesh Khanna

RIP Rajesh Khanna. Bollywood superstar and super actor. 163 films. What a career, what a life. Many accomplishments in only 69 years. Sigh.

Mark Boucher Retires

Mark #Boucher retires under very sad circumstances. Under-appreciated, all-time great wicketkeeper-batsman. Great career. Hope he recovers.

RIP Ernest Borgnine

RIP Ernest Borgnine. An incredibly eclectic career. Great screen presence. Underrated actor. And to think I discovered him through Airwolf!

Federer Wins Wimbledon!

From hero to #GOAT! Incredible come-from-behind win for #Roger #Federer at #Wimbledon. My heart did break for poor #Murray. Fan for life now

Federer Beats Djokovic!

Even if he doesn't win #Wimbledon, the #Federer (#GOAT) win over a sadly desultory #Nole was one for the ages! Hope is still alive!

Steve Nash Traded to Lakers

Oh man! Steve #Nash traded to the #Lakers?! Does this mean I have to root for them now? Nice of the #Suns to do right by him. #NBA

Federer Reaches Wimbledon Semis

Careful what you wish for! #Roger #Federer (#GOAT) reaches his record 33rd(!) Grand Slam semi at #Wimbledon! Up next: the relentless #Nole!

Bel Ami

Bel Ami: Cute little film that tries too hard to hit every spot in the picaresque checklist. Edward Cullen is actually pretty good.
