(Written back in January. Just didn't get around to posting.) When I heard there was going to be a new Little Women movie, I thought to myself, what more can they do with this story? I've only ever watched the 1994 adaptation, and while I'm not exactly a fan, I just felt like it did … Continue reading Future adaptations of Little Women
I just saw The Croods on Netflix. So I dug out my old Tumblr post on it. One of my better analyses from back then. http://sildarmillionsays.tumblr.com/post/46815555853/why-i-liked-the-croods-so-much
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
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
One of the things about Aquaman that struck me was how he approached love-interest Mera. Based on movies that came out since the beginning of Hollywood, and the casting of the manliest man like Jason Momoa, we would have expected the hero to surely sweep the woman off her feet and sweep her into a … Continue reading The Evolution of Men from Khal Drogo to Aquaman
The Big Sick is a universally lauded film, which got a standing ovation at Sundance and has a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes (as of writing this at least). But haters gonna hate, right? My Facebook actually had a bunch of articles that were less than pleased with the movie. The truth is, I completely related to … Continue reading The Big Sick Backlash
When Frozen first came out, I was all over it. Here is my initial gushing about the movie.
This is one my Tumblr posts that I like best because I double down on defending a movie and a character I don't like. That being said, I love the songs in this movie.
In my last post, I briefly talked about the Disney's live action remakes, and I thought I'd talk about them some more, a little bit more specifically. These won't be full-fledged reviews. Alice in Wonderland (and Alice Through the Looking Glass) These aren't remakes of course. I think they are meant to be continuations of … Continue reading Disney’s Live-Action Fairy Tales
I thought the movie was good...and I don't have a whole lot more to say about it. But I do have thoughts on other issues surrounding the movie! First, I'll give my quick review. Not taking into account the 1991 original, I thought this was a really good adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast … Continue reading Beauty and the Beast Review (ish)
