Classic Hollywood is a hotbed of romantic comedies and dramas. Many of the tropes and romantic elements that we today find tried or true were shining new in Hollywood’s adolescence. Provided here are a few of the best classic film romances and it is to be hoped they’ll make your heart happy whether they are shared with a friend, a lover, or just a piece of pie.
Ralph Breaks the Internet (2018), the sequel to Disney's popular Wreck it Ralph about an unlikely friendship between racing game protagonist Vanellope von Schweetz and "bad guy" who isn't really a bad guy, Ralph. The sequel released in November of 2018, and is coming this month to Movies Anywhere and Blu-ray/DVD-- and you can win a copy thanks to Walt Disney Studios! Read the review and then enter to win.
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the most creative takes on a comic-book film that I've seen in a long time, and not only that-- it's also just a downright fantastic Spider-Man movie. I am so, so late to this party, but party it is, and I don't want you to miss it, too.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, is a bit like cotton candy: it's a lot of fun while you're in the middle of it it, but it doesn't satisfy and leaves you still feeling a little empty afterward. Keep reading for a spoiler free review!
Cinema has a fine tradition of redressing classic literature for the new generation in contemporary garb. Continuing this fine tradition, comes 2018’s #Roxy, a modern take on the 1897 play Cyrano de Bergerac
Lights out? Check! Blanket to hide under? Check! October means Halloween, and what better way to celebrate the scariest month of the year, now that we’re too old to go trick or treating, than to settle in for a spine-chilling gaming sesh? Looking for something other than the well-known AAA horror games titles such as Resident Evil 7 or Until Dawn? Keep reading, as instead, we celebrate the spooky offerings of talented indie developers!
Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) is fun and entertaining but largely stays away from the intensity of the main Avengers sequence without forgetting that larger world's context. It's the first Marvel movie since Infinity War and thankfully we are handed some lighter fare. If you're looking for a summer comic book movie flick with an ass-kicking female hero, this is the movie for you.
In 1952, Sparrow Hill Road was the site of Rose Marshall's death. Rose has been walking the ghost roads ever since and she's been called [...]
The amazingly talented Bill Hader (how can you not love the infamous Stefon?) stars in (and produces and directs and writes for) the dark comedy [...]
We've waited 14 years for this film: The Incredibles 2 opens this weekend to about as much anticipation as any Disney/Pixar sequel can have. And while audiences have been waiting over a decade for this one, it seems like Disney has finally decided to go all-in with the Incredible-Family: Disneyland's new "Pixar Pier" opens later this month with the signature featured ride, the "Incredicoaster", occupying a massive footprint on the retooled boardwalk. But enough about that-- let's talk about the movie! And don't worry: this is a spoiler-free zone.
It’s been four years since we’ve seen a new escapade from Harry Dresden in the paranormal filled Chicago, Illinois created by Jim Butcher. But as of June 5, 2018, fans can dive back into that world with Brief Cases, a new short fiction collection from the Dresden Files.
I find Hogwarts Mystery to be an entertaining game, for what it is. You run out of energy quickly, unless you are willing to spend money, but honestly I don't mind games like this that I can play once or twice a day and feel like I'm enjoying them without spending hours of my life staring at my phone. That being said, there isn't anything "new" to it: it's pretty much just a retread, in a mildly interactive way.
It feels fitting to be writing a review of Pitch Perfect 3 right after celebrating the 5th Geek Girl Pen Pals birthday celebration. Why? Because of community! Pitch Perfect is about a group of young women who over time discover the importance of their relationships with each other. This third and final installment of the movies takes to heart that message of chosen family and the support and trust we give to our chosen family as we continue to move forward in life.
This month’s OwlCrate, Fearsome Fairy Tales, was highly anticipated and sold out in record time back in mid-December. With shows like Grimm, Once Upon a [...]
