Review: Gratuitous Product Placements & Harmful Messaging, Your Eyeballs Deserve So Much Better Than HE’S ALL THAT

It’s verging on heroic that they managed to mold a coherent plot around the more than 15 unique and conspicuous product placements in the movie He’s All That. Well, maybe heroic isn’t the best word for it. Appalling is perhaps a better term. A lot has been made about how He’s All That is a … Continue reading Review: Gratuitous Product Placements & Harmful Messaging, Your Eyeballs Deserve So Much Better Than HE’S ALL THAT

Review: MISBEHAVIOUR (2020) A Warm, Gentle, and Lightly Humorous Look at One Attempt Pulverize the Phucking Patriarchy

I happened to watch Misbehaviour, a movie I stumbled upon by luck, on the eve of the 2021 Miss Universe pageant, which took some of the buoyancy out of  this gentle and lightly humorous look at the real-life protests surrounding the 1970 Miss World competition and the rise of the Women's Liberation Movement in England. … Continue reading Review: MISBEHAVIOUR (2020) A Warm, Gentle, and Lightly Humorous Look at One Attempt Pulverize the Phucking Patriarchy

UNpregnant: The Reproductive Health Road Trip Comedy I Didn’t Know I Needed

I did not have "goofy teenage road trip comedy about the difficulties of a teenager exercising her reproductive rights in the United States" on my fun movies to watch bingo card, but, wow, am I glad it popped up. UNpregnant tries to cram a lot of things into its hour and 43 minute runtime, which … Continue reading UNpregnant: The Reproductive Health Road Trip Comedy I Didn’t Know I Needed
