Critics Rape Mira Nair’s Amelia Earhart

Not a good day for that desi hag Mira ‘Salaam Bombay’ Nair.

Folks, critics have brutally f*cked Mira’s latest movie Amelia Earhart.

Since you guys in India are unlikely to have heard of Amelia Earhart, here’s the Wiki profile of the extraordinary woman (for her times).

Here’s a sample of critics who have savaged Mira’s Amelia Earhart:

* Wall Street Journal:

The film struggles to stay aloft, and may soon vanish, like its namesake, without a trace.

* New York Times:

 Exasperatingly dull production.

* Time:

It leaves the odd impression of being merely a very long trailer for a film you’d actually love to see.

* Denver Post:

The movie is as conventional a biopic as Earhart was an unconventional woman.

* Oregonian:

Tin-eared, trudging, humorless, clumsy, ordinary, unattractive, and just plain tedious, it is a deeply pedestrian film that looks particularly lame whenever it tries to take us aloft.

* Rolling Stone:

There’s not a real or spontaneous minute in it.

* OK Magazine:

Earhart must have been more interesting than the film makes her out to be, and more magnetic than the airhead as Swank interprets her.

    Tony Jaa is back.. You should check out Ong Bak 2.. Critics are already hailing him as the New Bruce Lee.

    Best of Tony jaa.. Responds:

    If we’re supposed to get our jollies by watching someone constantly lift one’s legs, we’d rather it be a member of the distaff sex. 😉

    Mira Nair better stick to “ABCD, Desi Angtsy” dramas like The Namesake. Biopics is not her forte. Responds:

    We liked her Namesake.

    When we watched Namesake at the Paris theatre in Manhattan two plus years back, the mostly White audience applauded at the end of the movie.

    Here’s the Namesake review.

    Namesake, great movie.

    White audience applauding on it, don’t know what to say as I have witnessed them applauding by the end of Veerzaara, Om Shanti Om and Dostana.

    Infact some white ladies even had tears by the end of Dostana movie. White audience will applaud on any thing that makes them emotional. Responds:

    You write: Infact some white ladies even had tears by the end of Dostana movie

    Why just White ladies?

    After enduring two hours of Abhishek ‘can’t act’ Bachchan, the tear glands of even roaches and rats in the movie hall would have opened up.

    But these are tears of relief that the nightmare weighing upon them has ended.
