Dragonwyck (1946)

This movie, though. You guys should check it out. That’s a rather young Vincent Price, master of horror and whatnot (the creepy “Darkness falls across the land” voice in the Thriller song) - he plays a guy who’s trying to stick to an old fashioned style of living and beliefs, and while that seems all romantic and majestic, that’s where it begins to get creepy. He’s a control freak, and it begins to show.

Seriously, you want a movie that’s subtly creepy and builds on your feelings of dread and despair, watch this film. It’s gold.

The Problem with False Feminism (or why Frozen left me cold) ▷

This article by Dani Colman is BRILLIANT. Everything I felt about this movie that I couldn’t put into words is all here in this article.

As a Disney fan, I felt gipped and disappointed by Frozen. There was no character development, so why would I care about them in any sense? I’ve got a lot of friends who are die-hard fans of the movie now, but I hope they read this article and understand WHY some of us otherwise fanatic Disney fans aren’t caught up in the hype.

Movie Review/Rant - Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (WARNING, THAR BE SPOILERS AHEAD)

I watched “Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters” with Jared last night, and for a corny action flick, it was ok. I was decently entertained.

But then Jared and I discussed it later, and I realized I’d gone against my usual neutrality when it comes to movies. I do my best to see a new movie without any expectations because I end up getting incredibly disappointed; on the flip side, that method has worked wonders because then I become incredibly and pleasantly surprised at a film.

This was not one of those times.

If you haven’t seen this movie, then you’re missing out on one of the greatest love stories in cinema history. Definitely right up there with “Princess Bride.”

In a spoiler-free nutshell, a betrothed couple are cursed by a wicked bishop to be “always together, eternally apart” - one a hawk by day, and the other a wolf by night. And yet a character points out that the irony of it all is that both wolves and hawks mate for life.

A very young Matthew Broderick plays the somewhat comedic relief role of a young thief who gets mixed up in the whole ordeal, and his consistent talks with God throughout the film are great. The only downside to the film: the soundtrack. A film set in historically-fictional medieval France with knights on horseback? Oh yeah, bring on the synthesizer and 80’s rock. Wat.

Looking beyond that one painful aspect, this film is absolutely wonderful. So many poignant moments and memorable quotes, and one of my favorite parts is towards the end when the lady confronts the bishop. Talk about an empowering scene!

If you’re like me and have an everlasting love for older movies, then this one is right up your alley. I wish more people knew about it and enjoyed it as much as I do - I need more people to fangirl with me about how awesome of a movie it is! If you end up watching it, or are a crazy fan of it like me, shoot me a message and we can geek about it!

Anyone else curious about “Beasts of the Southern Wild”? I mostly want to see it for little Quvenzhané Wallis - she is a doll. :D

Finally got me the Tintin dvd.

Bless you, Andy Serkiss, for portraying one of my all-time favorite comic book characters to the utter sense of perfection. HADDOCK LIVES. <3

…and now I need someone to knit me his blue sweater. Finding a black blazer and a captain’s hat won’t be a problem.

That “The Last Movie u Watched Iz Now Ur Life! How Effed R U?” post came strolling through my dash again. I didn’t bother reblogging (no sense in constipation of my account), but I thought back to the last movie I watched, which was “Prince of Persia.”

Aw yiss, I thought.

I get to ride an ostrich.
