Re: “A resolution for 2012: Watch more Indian movies

If you want a challenge, try watching the 10+ different remakes of Devdas. The most recent one (with Aishwarya Rai) is now the most well-known and visually stunning of them all, but the others might be more difficult to find. And how could you get a Bollywood education without watching the early work of Amitabh Bachchan, or films with music composed by O.P. Nayyar? There's always the bewildering Dil Se, and if you haven't made it 'round to Ray's Charulata, you should. Just please disregard Slumdog Millionaire's pitiful misappropriations of Indian culture and your journey will be most fruitful.

Re: “A Nightmare on Elm Street

Just to be clear, Freddy Krueger was a child molester in the original. That was always the intention, and it is referred to, in perhaps too subtle a manner (at the request of producers). I do not say this to defend the remake, just to clarify.
