  • deadpool2yukio Deadpool: The Pansexual Superhero of the Queer Universe

    Queerness and alternative sexualities are a routine part of the Deadpool 2 universe. I’m thrilled, because stories belong to all of us. We all desire identity and crave to see that identity reflected in the art we love. Enough with the heterosexual romance being rubbed in our faces, I say.

    News reports, think pieces, and analysis aren’t doing the cliffhanger elections in Karnataka any justice. With all the absurd drama that has unfolded this week, our netas deserve their own multi-genre TV show – working title, Kar-Naatak, The Wild Wild State.

  • deadpool2reviewHollywoodsuperheroMarvelDCRyanReynoldsdeadpoolAvengersInfinitywar Deadpool 2: A Film So Meta It is Its Own Review

    Deadpool 2 manages to make fun of several Marvel superheroes, the entire DC Universe, the people who make all these movies, and the viewers. It is a reminder of how absurd our obsession with comic book superheroes is.

  • BSB Backstreet Boys: The Shared Embarrassment of Our Childhood

    The Backstreet Boys, the best-selling boy band in history, have just dropped a new single, “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart”. It’s a reminder that no matter how cool we now consider ourselves – working out of hipster cafés, watching subtitle-only films – we are the generation that once adored BSB.

  • brooklynninenine Why Brooklyn Nine-Nine Would’ve Been Better Off Without Season 6

    Despite what audiences demand, I believe it’s better to leave people wanting more than to die serving horrible seasons in the coming years. This is exactly why I fear that, with most conflicts resolved, Brooklyn Nine-Nine might return with a horrible Season 6.

  • Thehandmaidstale The Handmaid’s Tale and the Age-old Desire to Control Women’s Bodies

    The Handmaid’s Tale has returned with a searing second season that dwells on how the spirit of Gilead, where women have no control over their bodies, has always been alive in the real world. It’s a horrifying watch, particularly in the wake of what we’ve witnessed in Kathua and Unnao.

  • Why Ranveer Singh is the Deadpool Dubbed Hollywood Movies Deserve

    Ranveer Singh, voicing the title character of Deadpool 2, is a step in the right direction for Hollywood movies dubbed in Hindi. Hopefully, we’re done with the days when James Bond would walk into a bar and order a Patiala Chivas.

  • IronMan Started From the Scrapyard Now We Here: The Iron Man Story

    For ten years, ever since he first stepped into that crimson and gold suit, Iron Man’s been a role model. It’s not because he embodies my fantasy of being a genius playboy-billionaire-philanthropist in a high-tech suit who saves the day. It’s because of what Iron Man now symbolises – redemption through self-destruction.

  • satyajitray Name-Dropping Satyajit Ray: A Bong’s Greatest Accessory

    Bengalis love Satyajit Ray and his work nearly as much as we love boasting about our impeccable knowledge about the multi-hyphenate filmmaker and universal Bengali inspiration’s incredible existence. Even if we've seen a sum total of one Ray film.
