#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…

#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…

#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…

#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…

‘Modern Persuasion’ – The Last Indignity of 2020

Let me preface this by saying that I really, really wanted to love this movie. In fact, I begged to be allowed to review it for Fangirlish. I’m a huge fan of Jane Austen’s novels. I’ve come to appreciate “Persuasion”…

Fangirlish Countdown To Christmas: ‘A California Christmas’

I hate it when a movie says it’s a Christmas movie, but it’s not a Christmas movie. Like why do you have to disappoint me.

#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…

Apple TV+’s ‘Wolfwalkers’ is The Most Beautiful Movie of 2020

#WayBackWednesday – Home Alone (1990)

Fangirlish Countdown To Christmas: ‘Last Christmas’

I mean, Last Christmas was meant to be good and I get it. But the movie was completely disrespectful to the song. And that’s all there is to it.

#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…
