Awhile back, I read Crazy Rich Asians in anticipation of the movie coming out. I wanted to know if it was something that I may be interested in. I definitely was, as you can tell if you read my review. Two of my bookish friends were also working on reading it (one already had, the other had heard only positives), so we decided to go see it together. It was neat to experience the movie after the book (which is always a nail biting situation). We finally saw it this past weekend!
Thanks to the wonderful world of Netflix, Fangirls, I finally was able to see this movie. It’s been a long time coming. Though, I have a confession to make; I didn’t read the complete Hunger Games series. I quickly swallowed the first book when I was in 11th grade. Then, the book was so popular they couldn’t hold it in our library, and the same thing happened at my local library. Then, years pass by and it just doesn’t happen. But now thanks to Netflix, I can at least hear the story.
It’s no lie, Fangirls. I love cheesy dumb movies. Honestly, I love to judge & poke fun at them and their predictability, but in the end I really do fall for a crappy love story. But why do all these love stories involving same sex couples always have to be so forbidden? I’m not sure if movie producers understand how same sex relationships work, it’s not all hidden lust & forced to be temporary. I hope for the day that a gay couple is shown without all the emphasis being on the gay part. That all being said, I can’t deny the fact that I enjoyed this movie a lot.
Well, Fangirls, since I finally saw the 80’s cult classic Heathers a few weeks ago, it’s taken over my thoughts. I’ve done a lot of pondering on the plot and characters of this movie, and thought that it was a perfect candidate for our Villain Chat. But, then it occurred to me that I couldn’t actually land on just one villain of this movie.
Now, Fangirls, I read this book when I was a freshman in high school. I loved it, I read it very quickly. I was nervous about watching this movie and about writing this article because I don’t have the best memory, Fangirls. This will not be an in depth & detailed comparison of the book & movie. I simply finally got around to watching a movie adapted from a great book, and it wasn’t half bad.
Fangirls! So of course, I had to go see the newest X Men movie. I’m not well versed in the X Men movies, nor in the comic books. But, recently I’ve been very interested in trying my best to learn more about them. So, I was excited to go see this movie, which seemed like it was going to be very intense. And let me tell you, it was intense indeed.
Hey there, Fangirls! This week I’m happy to talk about one of my favorite movies that I finally had the chance to share with Emily a few weeks ago. Whip It is a badass tale of Bliss Cavender, played by Ellen Page, and her intense road to becoming an rough n tough derby girl. This movie has a fantastic cast, is a lovely directorial debut of Drew Barrymore, is so damn fun to watch and is just inspiring as all get out.
