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…

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,…

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…

From Page to Screen: The Fault In Our Stars

Trailer Talk: Fassbender Edition

Seeing Double If there’s one thing I like more than sparkly vampires and fanfiction, it’s hunky actors with adorable accents, but I guess you already knew that about me.

Florence + The Machine “Over the Love”

Green Light In My Eyes When the announcement was made, that my beloved Florence + The Machine had fashioned a brand-new tune for Baz Luhrmann’s much-anticipated film adaptation of The Great Gatsby, the appropriate response had been to run around my home in a sporadic like fashion, screaming at the top of my lungs. When…

Movie Review: The Host

The Universe & U This is how I see it. We spend years preoccupied with a series, constantly wishing they would select it for the big screen. Detailing lists; compiling scenes and particular components we absolutely want and don’t want. We debate casting decisions; obsess over initial snapshots and overdue theatrical trailers. We buy advance…

Trailer Talk: Much Ado About Nothing

Whedon vs The Bard Respectable nerds everywhere know that when you overhear the name Joss Whedon, or any other associated moniker, there is a predetermined selection of acceptable reactions. For instance, on the day Dollhouse was cancelled, the common reaction had everyone devouring a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream and shedding a few…

Trailer Talk: Beautiful Creatures

It’s magic, you know? First off, I swear to you, if I had known about this, I would have contacted you about it sooner, because you know this is right up my alley. Of course, the level of impressive marvel is increased with the inclusion of Seven Devils by my pal, Florence. But, that’s neither…

Trailer Talk: Warm Bodies

Written In Reverse At Kim the Fangirl, we love our fictional characters (Hunters, Hybrids, Vampire soulmates, etc); the sparkling, the romance, the uncomplicated lines of cheesy dialogue. However, if you didn’t already know, we also share a fondness for those impossibly slow-moving, ever so hungry creatures of the living dead. There’s been a lot of…

Random Rambling: Black Friday, Breaking Dawn, and The Host

Three Rants for the Price of One Black Friday Black Friday will be here next week. I’m guessing you already knew this, of course.
