Do Not Go to the Winchester

Luckily, our friends Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are here to help us laugh and relax. They’ve come up with the perfect plan. See you tomorrow! For more Kim the FanGirl follow the blog on…

What Are You Watching?

Two weeks at home, without much to do, means that you can catch up on some films and shows that have been waiting impatiently on your To Be Watched list. Three days in to required and extremely necessary social distancing and I’ve already sorted through three episodes of The Witcher, a much-needed re-watch of Moulin…

Thanks, Netflix

I found myself in a very common situation recently. I had filled my daily to-do list with achievable tasks. I had psyched myself up for a day of success. I was all ready for a full day of productivity when I decided to stop for a five minute procrastination break before I began. I checked…

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,…

Now Playing: Fred Astaire – “Cheek to Cheek”

This morning, I was prepared to go into a long-winded speech about Fred Astaire and how he was my favorite actor from the golden age of Hollywood. I thought I’d tell you how he got his start in vaudeville as a young child, dancing with his sister, Adele. I thought I’d talk about Astaire’s transition…

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)

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…

It’s Twilight Again
