#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

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…

Fangirlish Countdown to Christmas: ‘Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses’

Well, as usual we’ve got a lot of opinions, but get Erin drunk and she’s likely to tell you more than you wanna know. Today – it’s all about Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses.

‘The Prom’ Advanced Review: This Is About Emma… Right?

The Prom has been one of my favourite Broadway musicals of the last few years, and to say that I was skeptical about the upcoming adaptation of The Prom would be an understatement. I fell in love with the musical…
