Buffy goes to Bollywood: „So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?“

with one comment

„Buffy the Vampire Slayer“ turned 20 this March – and, revisiting the first two seasons, I think it has aged quite nicely.

I just ran across a funny exchange in the „Reptile Boy“ episode (S02E05), featuring Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon) watching a Bollywood song & dance scene together:

Xander: Is she dying?
Buffy: I think she’s singing.
Xander: To a telephone, in Hindi. Now, that’s entertainment. – Why is she singing?
Willow: She’s sad because her lover gave her 12 gold coins. But then the wizard cut open a bag of salt and now the dancing minions have nowhere to put their big maple fish thing.
Xander: Uh-huh. – Why is she singing?
Buffy: Her lover? I thought that was her chiropractor.
Willow: Because of that thing he did with her feet? – No, that was personal.
Xander: And we thought just because we didn’t have any money or any place to go, this’d be a lacklustre evening.
Willow: I know, we could go to the Bronze, sneak in our own tea bags and ask for hot water.
Xander: Hop off the outlaw train before you land us in jail.
Buffy: I, for one, am giddy and up. There’s a kinda hush all over Sunnydale. No demons or vampires to slay. I’m here with my friends. – So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?

7th Film Festival „Bollywood and beyond“: The Tweets (incl. Trailers)

with 3 comments

Short Twitter reviews I posted after each screening during the Bollywood and beyond festival in Stuttgart:

Today’s Special (USA 2010): Deliciously funny & touching indie food movie. Naseeruddin Shah steals every scene he is in. I liked the movie right from the start – any film movie starting off with the music of 1957’s „Eena Meena Deeka“ & food scenes is my thing. The movie will be released in the U.S. on October 8, 2010. Check out the official website and the Facebook fan page. ***** of *****
