For me this week movies were playing the role of comfort food, only watched 2 older movies that I have seen tons of times and thoroughly enjoyed them.
I know for sure that if I hadn't seen this movie as a kid, I wouldn't have given it this score. But the feelings it evokes are great. I am willing to look past the non-sense or illogical parts due to the nostalgia. Overall this is a very funny and entertaining movie with a great lead performance. I was watching this with a cousin, and he has been criticising SRK recently just to get a rise out of me, but while watching this movie he was amazed that while both characters were face to face, you could absolutely see the small things he added to each performance to make it distinctive. The songs were also very good.
A totally bizarre but also funny line is when he asks his boss "Chai thandi peeni hai ya garam".
Home Alone (6.5/10):
Again, got a warm and fuzzy feeling when watching this movie. I love movies that revolve around family and also those that take place in the winter season, so this one is an absolute slam-dunk for me.
Surprisingly the parts that I didn't like as much were when he was torturing the thieves, which I used to enjoy the most as a kid.
Other than these, I continued my binge watch of Fringe and ended it finally. I have to say that after an outstanding season 3 (especially the first half), the show declined in quality. Both the 4th and 5th seasons took off in a direction I didn't like, and so this won't be in my list of all-timers, but it still is an entertaining and fun watch, particularly if you like Sci-Fi.
Now have started by binge of Marvel's Runaways, which is very good so far, done with half the season.
