#WayBackWednesday – The Fog (1980)

The Fog (1980) is a film I’ve only had the pleasure of seeing once before this week. I’ve waxed philosophical more than once on Fangirlish about my love for John Carpenter’s work and directorial style. When I saw that The…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×13 Review: “That Hope is You, Part 2”

After watching “That Hope is You, Part 2,” the finale of season three of Star Trek: Discovery, I knew I had to go back and check out my review of the season opener, “That Hope is You, Part 1.” One…

#WayBackWednesday – The Princess Bride (1987)

Sometimes you just need a comfort movie for your #WayBackWednesday, which is why I’m revisiting the 1987 cult-favorite this week, The Princess Bride. The Princess Bride is nearly universally loved, but did you know this film was only moderately successful…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×12 Review: “There is a Tide…”

Star Trek: Discovery has had me all up in my feels for WEEKS and this week’s episode 3×12, “There is a Tide…” is no different. We’ve got Star Trek: The Next Generation and Picard alum, Jonathan Frakes back in the…

#WayBackWednesday – When Harry Met Sally… (1989)

Confession: I have been reluctant to watch When Harry Met Sally… for many years. It’s not because it’s not my preferred genre of science fiction. It’s not because I don’t enjoy Billy Crystal, Meg Ryan, or the writing of the…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×11 Review: “Su’Kal”

Lots of “thrillin’ heroics” are going down in 3×11 of Star Trek: Discovery. We’ve got season-long questions getting answered, mettle getting tested, and some costuming shake-ups in “Su’Kal”. What do you think about this Christmas Eve gift from Star Trek?…

#WayBackWednesday – The Santa Clause (1994)

The Santa Clause got repeat play at my house year-round growing up. I watched a fair amount of Home Improvement because of my crush on JTT back in the day, so I was quite happy to watch a Disney Christmas…

‘The Mandalorian’ 2×08 Review: “The Rescue”

We’ve now got the final episode of The Mandalorian season two. I don’t know about you, but so many things about 2×08, “The Rescue” left me in a puddle of feels. We’ve got a little while to wait for season…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×10 Review: “Terra Firma, Part 2”

We’re back in the Mirror Universe with Georgiou on 3×10 of Star Trek: Discovery, “Terra Firma, Part 2.” Check out our review on Fangirlish.

#WayBackWednesday – White Christmas (1954)

White Christmas is a film that I missed growing up. My parents aren’t really into musicals. Truthfully, it wasn’t even on my radar until a few years ago when one of my best friends was aghast that I’d barely heard…

‘The Mandalorian’ 2×07 Review: “The Believer”

The last half of this season of The Mandalorian has really picked up the pace compared with last season. “The Believer” not only amps up the action, but also really puts Mando through the moral and ethical wringer. This episode…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×09 Review: “Terra Firma, Part 1”

This week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery, “Terra Firma, Part 1,” gave us some deep cut Star Trek lore, time travel, and another appearance by the king of body horror, David Cronenberg. Truthfully, even after watching this week’s episode three…

#WayBackWednesday – Home Alone (1990)

Home Alone is one Christmas movie that gets repeat play at my house every single year, and has since I was a kid. I was the perfect age for Home Alone when it premiered and long dreamt of setting all…

‘The Mandalorian’ 2×06 Review: “The Tragedy”

The Mandalorian knocked it out of the park AGAIN this week with “The Tragedy.” An episode that brings not one, but two characters officially back from the dead, adds more cuteness (and Big Force Energy) from Grogu, Mando expressing some…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×08 Review: “The Sanctuary”

Go to “The Sanctuary” with the crew of Star Trek: Discovery! Check out our review of episode 3×08 on Fangirlish.

#WayBackWednesday – Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas (1977)

Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas brings back a few memories for me from my childhood. I’ve always enjoyed Jim Henson and the Muppets, but Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas came across my radar by pure happenstance. I was maybe somewhere in the…

‘The Mandalorian’ 2×05 Review: “The Jedi”

The Mandalorian delivers yet again this week with “The Jedi.” The fandom has been holding its collective breath since the announcement that fan favorite character Ahsoka Tano would be joining the cast of The Mandalorian in her first live-action appearance.…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×07 Review: “Unification III”

As I settled in to watch this week’s episode of Star Trek: Discovery 3X07 “Unification III”, with a plate of Thanksgiving leftovers, I couldn’t help but be grateful for the way the show continues to model the world as it…

#WayBackWednesday – Planes, Trains & Automobiles (1987)

Planes, Trains & Automobiles is the quintessential Thanksgiving movie. To be totally fair, there just aren’t that many Thanksgiving movies, but aside from A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, there’s probably no other Thanksgiving film more beloved than Planes, Trains & Automobiles.…

‘The Mandalorian’ 2×04 Review: “The Siege”

The Mandalorian rejoins some old allies in “The Siege,” getting the Razor Crest repaired and giving Greef Karga and Cara Dune a hand in securing Nevarro. “The Siege” puts Carl Weathers (Greef Karga) in the director’s chair and marks the…

‘Star Trek: Discovery’ 3×06 Review: “Scavengers”

Star Trek: Discovery 3×06 “Scavengers” is the episode we have been anticipating this season of Star Trek: Discovery. We mentioned in our review of episode three that the writers seem to be drawing parallels between Georgiou and Michael. Georgiou has…
