Movie Review: Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears

Fearless, feminist icon and glamorous lady detective, Phryne Fisher, has returned from an extended hiatus for an all-new, high-flying adventure. Rejoice! Our favorite flapper is back.

The Batman

Happy Valentine’s Day, my lovelies! I love you so much I got you a gift, a little something special. You may have already seen it. You may have already taken a peek at it, but I think it’s worth repeating. It is quite astonishing, after all. When I first saw the short teaser I thought,…

I ❤️ Captain Marvel

There’s been a lot of negative talk about Captain Marvel lately and I’ve been having a really hard time staying quiet about it. It’s taken all of my strength not to say anything, because if there is one thing I know about social media and the internet, it’s that you shouldn’t respond to every sexist…

Movie Review: Little Women

We all have a favorite film adaptation of Little Women. Whether it be Hepburn, Allyson, or Ryder, it’s a film we all know. It’s a film we’ve all grown up with. We’ve memorized every scene, every line of dialogue. We know the film backwards and forwards. We know it by heart. Although each incarnation is…

Trailer Talk: A Star Is Born (2018)

In 1937, A Star Is Born premiered with Janet Gaynor and Fredric March in the roles Esther Blodgett and Norman Maine. The story detailed the tragic journey of two Hollywood darlings, one whose career was just beginning and the other whose stardom was fading. In 1954, Judy Garland and James Mason took over, yielding what…

Movie Review: Avengers – Infinity War (Spoiler Free!)

I never considered myself a fan of superhero movies. I’d been a firm believer that those blockbuster films were overrated. I truly thought I had no ties to the genre, whatsoever. Now, I’ve realized that is a complete lie. I love superhero movies, I always have. I didn’t want to admit it to myself. I’d…

Help! I Can’t Stop Watching DIVERGENT

Lately, I’ve found myself stuck in an endless Divergent loop. It’s always on TV. I can’t get away from it. I have to watch it. Who cares about the hundred-plus films that stare at me judgmentally from my Netflix queue? I know I surely don’t. When Divergent is on nothing else matters. I really don’t…

Trailer Talk: The Best of TIFF (2014)

The Toronto International Film Festival officially wrapped up this weekend, after hosting over three-hundred films from around the world. For some, that might simply be a number, an impressive myriad of newly acclaimed movies. Or, some might think of the festival only as an outlet, to distinguish front-runners for this upcoming awards season. To me,…

Movie Review: The Fault In Our Stars

Cosmic Love Ten minutes into the film and I knew there was something different about this particular adaptation, something uniquely special about The Fault In Our Stars. Even now, a week later, I can still feel the euphoric aftereffects of glorious wonderment running through my system. I certainly never thought it would be overly disappointing,…

Movie Review: Maleficent

Not Your Mama’s Fairytale As a child, my favorite Disney film had been Sleeping Beauty. I was captivated by it, hypnotized by the vibrant colors and the elaborate landscapes. Pink or blue, it didn’t matter. My young heart was enchanted by the young Princess Aurora and her three skilled protectors. To this day, I can…

Ten for the Price of One

My love for movies and movie trailers knows no bounds, as you are very well acquainted with, but most of the time I fail to actually see those movies that I comment on until they are well past their expiration date. These past few weeks, weirdly enough, I’ve been on a steady binge, keeping myself…

Trailer Talk: The Rover

There is an overwhelming sense of dread as you gaze upon the desolate Australian landscape, as you try to interpret the stunning and disturbing imagery of The Rover. Like a photograph assembled of riddles, the film’s first trailer plays out in grim and eerie detail. Every scene is clouded in mystery and subject to dissection. It…
