Fangirlish Does Valentine’s Day: “Miss Congeniality”

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…

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…
