If it had been on my radar, I would have loved a movie like The Black Hole, as a kid. The retro-futuristic aesthetic, the setting, and cute floating robot buddies that sass you when you talk to them? That’s my jam right there. Has The Black Hole evaded your visionRead More →

We’re all stuck in the house, right? There’s never been a better time to dig into those retro movies that you’ve always wanted to watch, but never had the time for. Personally, I’m a bit of a retrophile and tend to watch more older flicks than newer ones. On Fangirlish,Read More →

We may be waiting awhile for the movies that we want, but we understand why. Coronavirus will keep us out of theaters for awhile – partly because they are closed and partially because of fear. I admit it. Disney-Pixar is getting us all excited to go to the movies thoughRead More →

Derek Hough will soon be streaming near you. We know that if you’re like us, you’ve been excited over the High School Musical series on Disney+. Sure, the movies will always remain supreme, but we can also appreciate the show. The actor/dancer/wanna be singer is joining the show in aRead More →

Sure, I have an issue with Disney+ right now, because like don’t even get me started on the Lizzie McGuire issue. Let Lizzie live. Anyhow, Disney+ – in their quest for more family friendly entertainment (which I will also stand by is subjective) is rebooting Turner & Hooch. Nikita alumna Lyndsy Fonseca andRead More →

Not going to lie, I thought Mulan was a shoe in for a PG rating. Live action Disney films that we originally animated don’t get above a PG rating. It is the first live action Disney Film to receive at PG-13 rating since Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men TellRead More →
