In case anyone wants to know just how far down the rabbit hole I’ve gone today

I present to to you the Crosshairs masterlist of the Normandy SR1 Crew Roster (post Eden Prime and the subsequent Spectre Promotion and Shepard gaining command of the Normandy):

I’m working on a “the ranks explained” post, because I’ve sat here for a good portion of the day working it out myself. BioWare’s ranking system on the wikipedia is not only… lacking, it’s not even complete itself as there are military personnel in the games with ranks not included on their list. So I took liberties, melding Navy, Air Force, and Marine ranks into one ‘Alliance Military’ system, accounting for career paths - some of which are not marked for command paths, despite being of ‘equal rank’. Anyway, that will be a post of it’s own in the near future. In the meantime, enjoy my insanity:

Devgn’s lines in this movie, had me in pain from laughing!
“My chest has become blouse”
“When elders get cosy, young don’t get nosy”
His presence on screen has become powerfully noticeable. 
(which could also be for his muscles, lucky Kajol!)

Abhishek was brilliant as ever. Reminded me of the Dostana days!
Despite him playing a role we have already seen him do, this film had
something new to it, that clearly announced Abhishek’s glorious return!

Big B’s special appearance, just added that zing!

I have never really been a fan of Asin.
She did wonderfully in Ghajini, but I feel her role in BB was of no importance whatsoever.
With her capability, as is shown in her previous films, she could have done thoda sa more.

Desai played her character well, though there wasn’t really much for her to do.
Her kidnapping scene focussed more on the visual stunts and effects of Devgn and Bachchan taking on Vikrant’s ‘army’, rather than her being a 'hostage’.
One thing is certain, her hair stylist is amazing! I could not keep my eyes off those gorgeous curls!

The return of Archana Puran Singh! We all remember her as Mrs Braganza, but she surely showed off her youthfulness in BB. You will all know what I’m talking about once you see the movie!

The jokers who surrounded the main characters gave the movie its glory.
The dialogue, expressions and reactions developed the humour element, and gave it just what it needed: fun!

Bachchan and Devgn stole the show for sure, and left the audiences roaring in laughter.
Let’s wait and see its opening week crores!

Loooooved it :)
