Save Yourselves! (2020) is a film that walks the line between absurdist humor and horror in such a way that it can be both about surviving an alien invasion and escaping from the technological trap that is 21st century life. With relatable characters and the perfect amount of tension, this is a must-watch film in a year where so many of us exist at the intersection of physical isolation and digital dependence.
Murder in the Woods is out on Video on Demand (VOD) today! With vintage 90s slasher vibes and a spooky setting in a lonely cabin, this film is a fun throwback to classic teen horror.
The classic tabletop role-playing game (TTRPG) Dungeons and Dragons is experiencing something of a renaissance lately, seemingly exploding on social media and in pop culture. No longer relegated to the dark corners of basements, D&D is now a pretty common part of conversation in many places online. Along with this rise in popularity, there is an appetite for fun content from fans-- and what better way to scratch the TTRPG itch than with a podcast? If you want a fun dose of D&D in your earbuds, check out Roll For It!
These days I find myself looking to the small things to take my mind off 2020 and all the weirdness that comes with it, so snail mail that isn’t a bill is always a welcome treat! The fine folks at Snailbox sent one of their boxes to Geek Girl Pen Pals to review, and I’d like to tell you a bit about it!
If you read the blog last month, you might be familiar with my list of Webtoon comics that I suggested. My friend Kit read the list, loved it, then more or less demanded that I read this Webtoon called Winter Moon. I’ve seen this comic on the top lists for Webtoon and hadn’t read it, but it was on the long list I’m checking out. Kit encouraged (read: SPAM) me with a myriad of messages on Facebook IM telling/demanding me to read it. We’ve been friends for about ten years and she has yet to recommend a bad story, so I gave into her demand and read this comic. Needless to say, I fell in love with it and have to admit that Kit is right once again.
Onward (2020), the latest original offering from Disney Pixar Studios, is a charming tale of brotherly love set in a classic roadtrip film style and is laden with dungeons and dragons references (in the best possible way). It's got adventure, magic, humor, and is an all-around fun and heart-warming film.
Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020) is one of the most fun flicks I've seen in a theater in a long time. This is a kick-ass, violent technicolor stream of strong women overcoming their abuse cycles to come together and win the day. It's well-conceived, well-written, and executed far better than many comic-book team-ups before it.
Disney's remake of The Lion King hit theaters this week to mixed reviews. As someone who grew up loving the original film, I wanted to see for myself whether the remake would reach the level of the original. I'm here to tell you the good, the bad, and whether (in my opinion) this film even needed to be made.
