We just got back from Captain America, which wasn't bad but didn't grab me as much as the Iron Man movies or Thor (those I adored). Didn't help that (a) Chris Evans is not really my cup of tea (b) love interest was boring - I spent most of the movie slashing him with his BFF (c) come on, make the Nazis the antagonists, not some Nazi-type group.

I am usually not a picky action/superhero fangirl (I loved GI Joe) but this was merely OK.

Two best things about the movie? After the credits, they show a teaser for The Avengers and I want want want want! Any movie that has Samuel L. Jackson, Tony Stark AND Thor in it, is getting my fangirl money and hormones asap.

Second thing? They showed a trailer for John Carter (which used to be 'John Carter of Mars since it is based on Edgar Rice Burroughs book of the same name, but I guess they thought it would be unhip or something) and I would have been making grabby hands at the screen if possible. Read the book ages ago and enjoyed it - I am very prone to cheesy Victorian/Edwardian adventure novels. Plus, any movie that stars Taylor Kitsch (what an appropriate last name!) as a long-haired angsty warrior wearing little more than leather straps has my vote of approval. Trailer:



Not so good? The trailer for new Spiderman. Ugh! The first of the three Raimi Spidey movies was less than 10 years ago, why on earth does it need a reboot? Also, it looks horrible and the leading man is just - no. Tobey Maguire was perfect in the role despite not looking like my dream man. This guy is the blandest thing since sliced bread, perfect for the boring trailer. People in our theater actually laughed at it, which doesn't bode well.

Oh Bollywood. I love you. According to the TB board (tons of teenyboppers but best source for Bolly stuff, sort of like Bolly soompi), John Abraham was interviewed and said he's doing a romantic film called "Last Leaf" with Vidya directed by newcomer Vikram Motwande (SLB's assistant). *dies* *briefly resurrects, dies again.* Three hours just of John/Vidya. YES.

I have also just found out that there will be another superhero movie made by Bollywood this year! Called Drona and starring Abhishek Bachchan as a superhero. Filmed in Prague. Oh what has Rakesh Roshan done with Krrish (Bollywood's first superhero movie that came out last year and was a super smash). I confess the idea of a Bolly superhero genre makes me happy as either it's going to be delicious fun like Krrish or it's going to suck so bad as to be enitrely entertaining on a different level :D I mean, it's like any other superhero movie, only with singing and dancing! What's not to love! Bollywood heroes are half-way to superhero status anyway, what with defeating ten villains single-handed, so might as well make it official.

Indian press, being its own kind and gentle self, is of course publishing such thoughtful articles as the fact that Abhishek is doing the superhero movie with no stops for the Bachchan family just to show up Hrithik Roshan, the star of Krrish, who didn't just steal Dhoom 2 (the movie in which Abhishek and Hrithik co-starred together) but also got to kiss Abhishek's fiancee on screen...oooooooh. Or something.

I don't know if I buy Abhishek as a superhero though. He is a very good actor in arthouse movies, but to be a superhero, you need to have a certain larger than life charisma and persona and I just can't see it (he can do larger than life, has done so in Guru, but once again, it's not the glamorous larger than life). Hrithik? Heck yeah:



The guy was born to play a superhero. Or I can see Shahrukh Khan because of his sheer star wattage. Abhishek? I have yet to really swoon for him outside an arthouse flick (though when he is in a Mani Ratnam flick? Watch out). We shall see.

P.S. After looking for some Bolly pics, I've decided that Hrithik really must eat babies for breakfast or similar. Preferably cute orphan babies. Because no one that hot can be that consistently nice in interviews and say things like the fact that he writes poems about his newborn with a straight face and be for real. I am still waiting for that baby-eating expose. Or at least a snarky interview, people. There is a reason I prefer reading Salman or SRK interviewed. The guys can snark and make me roll in the aisles (so to speak). As to Hrithik? 'I love SRK's Swades.' Yeah, yeah, yeah. Good taste in movies, but quotable? No chance.

Oh Hrithik, Hrithik, how much do you spoil me? Not only are you gorgeous in that romance-novel-cover way, but you insist in acting in horrible movies that fill me with glee and sporting pleather at the least opportunity. How much better can it get?

Well, I am not sure, since the ante has just been upped with Krrish, Hrithik Roshan's new upcoming movie. It's supposed to be India's first superhero movie (what, have they forgot the atrocious theft remake of Superman?), but the whole enterprise is undermined by Hrithik's poofy hair and the coat he has clearly stolen from Trinity. Well, you might say undermined. I would definitely say enhanced.

This is a movie that will fill me with glee: hot guy, ridiculous get-up, plot that is delicious to mock and outfits even worse? Thank you, Rakesh Roshan, the director of this baby (and the mastermind behind such gems as "Koyla" which must be seen to be believed). May your bizarre attempts to fetishize your son always remain so entertaining.


Fear me, and my radioactive glow or a romance novel cover of doom:



Plenty of other equally to die for pictures behind the cut )
