A Big winner all-round

3 years, 11 months ago at Feb 11 6:25
1 vote
One of the most unexpected movie-going delights of 2017, The Big Sick is much more than just another fluffy Hollywood romantic comedy. Written by Kumail Nanjiani and his wife Emily V. Gordon, the movie is loosely based on the true story of their courtship and romance, eschewing forced sentiment and broad jokes to construct an effective dramedy with cross-cultural themes, an appealing cast, big lau... read more

The Big Sick

Sometimes truth is infinitely stranger than fiction. Case in point, look at the romantic comedy interrupted that is The Big Sick. Loosely based on the real life courtship between co-writers Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V. Gordon, The Big Sick is a thoughtful examination of the ties that bind us together, be they familial or chosen.   We begin in the normal romantic comedy formula: boy (Nanjiani p... read more

To be honest, I think the title of this movie was quite a spoiler so I actually pretty much knew what to expect from this flick but since I kept hearing some pretty good things about it, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, after watching the damned thing, I still don’t think it was terribly original but, still, most of it worked fine. First of all, I didn’t realize Kumail Nanjiani had don... read more

My Top 80 Favorite Romantic Comedies (80 movies items)

"As most of us have any experience with relationships with the opposite sex, it seems like those who we meet who we want to a relationship with the most, life tends tends to throw in the biggest obstacles. In this star-crossed romantic comedy, the obstacle isn't just cultural differences, but on top of it, it's a big sick. Incredibly well written due to the fact that it was written by it's two leading stars who are a real-life interethnic couple, The Big Sick explores the dynamics of such a re"

A good movie

“To be honest, I think the title of this movie was quite a spoiler so I actually pretty much knew what to expect from this flick but since I kept hearing some pretty good things about it, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, after watching the damned thing, I still don’t think it was terribly original but, still, most of it worked fine. First of all, I didn’t realize Kumail Nanjiani had done so much work before this movie but the guy was really funny here. On top of that, he had some great chemistry with Zoe Kazan and it’s too bad she had to disappear through half of the movie but I guess that was the whole point here. Furthermore, even if it followed the blueprint of the most basic romantic comedies, the whole thing still felt mostly genuine. In my case, my father was immigrant, ” read more

Bml93's Film Experiences for 2018 (140 movies items)

" I'm a sucker for witty love stories that manages to be emotionally genuine, honest and relatable, while simultaneously having a message of its own on its heart. The Big Sick is all of that and so much more. It's not often a film leaves me in such a good mood afterwards, and seeing as I can be somewhat of a cynical bastard at times, that's high praise coming from me. I adore this film."
