Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

By: Meg Humphrey THIS DOES CONTAIN SOME SPOILERS!! I remember blowing through the first three Mission: Impossible movies before Ghost Protocol came out. They were alright – it was nice to see the famous scenes within context – but I didn’t have a strong desire to keep up with the franchise. Ghost Protocol changed that. […]

Paul Rudd is the (Ant) Man!

By: Meg Humphrey I loved Ant-Man all the way down to its teeny tiny pieces. I’ve been seeing things like “Ant-Man is Phase 2’s Hulk” and yes, it did pull in smaller box office numbers than more recent Marvel movies, and yes, the villain is basically an evil version of Ant-Man, but honestly I think […]

Under the Skin: An Intense & Unnerving Sci-Fi Film

By: Jen Richards Jonathan Glazer’s latest film, Under the Skin, is one that invokes strong feelings. Based loosely on the book by Michel Faber, and starring Scarlett Johansson, it is a creepy, close up look at what it is like for a being not of this world to experience it. Glazer has been compared to both […]

Movie Review: The Quiet Ones

By: Meg Humphrey Thanks to Lionsgate and GeekGirlCon, I got to attend a screening of The Quiet Ones a day before it came out! Let me preface this with two things: this is my first time going to a screening and this is the first time I’ve ever seen a movie in the theater alone! […]

The Winter Soldier (2)

By: Terra Clarke Olsen Leaving the theatre after seeing Captain America: The Winter Soldier, I was high and excited. I would have described the movie in one word: AWESOME. No really, I left the theatre feeling inspired and awe struck. I knew it was going to be good, but I didn’t realize it was going […]

The Winter Soldier

By: Meg Humphrey I am a huge Captain America fangirl. Justice, righteousness, and unwavering moral compasses are some of my absolutely favorite things. Now, I admit that it was The First Avenger that brought me into the fandom (and don’t anyone dare say that I’m not a “real fan” because of it), but since then […]

Muppets Most Wanted

By: Meg Humphrey (No spoilers!) For me, Muppets Most Wanted ranked up there as “most anticipated movie of the year” along with The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Into the Woods. I’ve been a Muppet fan for as long as I can remember. While Muppets in Space didn’t rock my world and TV […]

The LEGO Movie: Everything is Awesome

The LEGO Movie: Everything is Awesome By: Terra Clarke Olsen I cannot say enough good things about this movie. It surpassed all my expectations and was far better than I ever thought possible. The visuals, the sounds, the story-it all merged together creating the perfect movie. Seriously, it is awesomely perfect. The theme song of the […]

Spike Jonze’s Her

Spike Jonze’s Her: Light on the Sci-Fi, Heavy on Feelings By: Jen Richards (Warning: Potential though Minor Spoilers) Joaquin Phoenix stars in Her, the tale of a man who falls in love with his operating system (OS). A little far fetched perhaps, but knowing Spike Jonze was at the helm (as director and writer), gave […]

A Fangirl’s Review of The Hobbit

 A Fangirl’s Review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey By: Terra Clarke Olsen As I previously wrote, I am a huge Hobbit fan. But it goes beyond The Hobbit, I love all works by Tolkien. So I found myself surprised when I read so many Tolkien fans profusely bashing the new Hobbit movie. I originally […]
