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…

Haim “If I Could Change Your Mind”

Visions of Our Love If it were “cool” or even mildly appropriate for a woman above the age of twenty to rehearse dance moves in the privacy of her own bedroom, most of us, most likely, would have the majority of the choreography for Haim’s If I Could Change Your Mind memorized within the next hour….

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…

Trailer Talk: The Fault In Our Stars

I can’t even begin to describe what I feel in this moment. My thoughts are like stars I cannot fathom into constellations. My thoughts are like a half-million abnormally shaped shards of fragmented emotions swirling around and around inside my head and in my gut. The first trailer for The Fault In Our Stars is…

Book Review: Gone Girl

Deception If you’re an avid reader or even remotely aware of the latest vogue publications, you, most likely, have already read the book that everyone’s been talking about. At least, you’ve heard about the book that everyone’s been talking about. The book which – on its back cover – promises greatness, a psychological thriller that…

Fangirls

It’s hard to believe there was a time in my life before fangirl, before I was able to recognize that I was neither, simply, nerd or geek . . . nor mentally unstable; that I wasn’t the only one who experienced regular intervals of intense infatuation and possessed unbridled levels of fierce enthusiasm. It was…

Album Review: Haim – Days Are Gone

They say when you fall in love you fall in love slowly then all at once. A few months ago, I had no idea who Haim was, let alone know how to correctly sound out their name. Now, at this point in time, I can’t imagine a life where I don’t listen to their music…

From Page to Screen: The Fault In Our Stars

For those who don’t follow John Green’s Twitter feed religiously or if you’re one of those people who avoid spoilers like one would avoid a plague, The Fault In Our Stars: The Movie has officially begun filming. Seriously, I’m not joking. This is a real thing that is actually happening. Our beloved Hazel Grace &…

Obligated Viewing

It’s happened to all of us at one time or another. You’re sitting there, nothing to watch, flicking the buttons on the remote at an unusually swift speed, desperate to lose yourself in an hour of intense fictional fantasy. You ignore that annoying voice in your head that commands you to stop and go pick…
