I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. Nahasapeemapetilon

Typepad has spotted Filmigeek, a blog about Bollywood films.

I must confess to an abiding fondness for Bollywood films. With English subtitles, they can be fun to watch, even with their odd moments, such as naming a supervillain "Don Quixote". Or two conflicting armies starting to sing and dance with each other in the middle of a battle.

One film that I saw was unitentionally amusing, due to it being filmed in B.C.'s Lower Mainland. It was funny to see a couple cavorting on the Capilano Suspension Bridge, then along the beach in White Rock, then in downtown Vancouver...when all these locations are quite far away from each other in real life.
