The One Weakness of Mean Girls

So apparently this year was the 15 year anniversary of Mean Girls, which blew my mind! It still feels like just a few years ago. It was amazing when it came out and it still holds up. But there is one tiny weakness.   http://sildarmillionsays.tumblr.com/post/45558762809/the-weakest-link-of-mean-girls

Feminism as a Plot-Point rather than as an Ideology

Since the Downton Abbey movie just came out, I figured I will post another of my old Tumblr posts. I never did go back to the show because a soap is a soap no matter how much you dress it up with high production value and sophisticated period piece aesthetics. Don't know if they did … Continue reading Feminism as a Plot-Point rather than as an Ideology

Marvel-Netflix. And Foggy Nelson.

Well, Luke Cage was likely a big hit. It got a lot of praise at any rate, but I don't know what Netflix viewing numbers look like.

James and Oliver Phelps as Fred and George Weasley brought an energy to the screen … Continue reading The HP Cast: Those Who Captured Their Book Counterparts

The HP Cast: Those Who Redefined the Characters

Evanna Lynch was the perfect Luna Lovegood. Maggie Smith was the perfect Professor McGonagall. Alan Rickman was the perfect Severus Snape. Imelda Staunton was the perfect Dolores Umbridge. Helena Bonham Carter was the perfect Bellatrix Lestrage. Now, I’m sure not everyone agrees with the above, but I get the feeling that this is the general … Continue reading The HP Cast: Those Who Redefined the Characters

Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, and Noma Dumezweni

So, you may have heard about casting of award winning actor Noma Dumezweni as Hermione Granger in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. And the controversy surrounding that is the reaction of many fans to the fact that the actor is black. Whereas, Hermione is definitely, white right? Not necessarily. J.K. Rowling didn't seem to think … Continue reading Hermione Granger, Emma Watson, and Noma Dumezweni
