    Legally Blonde


    While I recognize that "Clueless" is an adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma, at least that movie makes it crystal clear what work they are adapting from. THIS movie lifts a lot of scenes, plot points, and aesthetics from Clueless in the following ways and I have never heard the movie or Amy Heckerling or costume designer Mona May ever given any credit. "Clueless" was released in 1995, this movie in 2001.

    Typed up in chronological order for when these scenes…

  • Grease



    My mother is obsessed with the 1970s in the way that I am obsessed with the 1990s. It's a nice symmetry. I feel so lucky that my mother showed us "Grease" over and over again in our childhood. We didn't grow up with many movies before the 1980s. We didn't know many of the famous classic musicals that everyone raves about and references. But I know "Grease"! And we love "Grease"!

    The thing is, "Grease" is a movie and a…

    When Harry Met Sally...


    I remember in my movie-watching life, a time where I was too young to understand this movie. As time goes on, I only understand this movie and admire it more and more. I am now actually at a point in my life where I have lived almost every aspect of Sally's life in my own life. Which is crazy. The movie is so relatable, game-changing, iconic, and influential. There are specific scenes that I can see imprinting their way onto…

    Close Encounters of the Third Kind


    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This is so not the movie that I was expecting to see so to be honest I am just completely reeling in shock from the whole thing. I am still reconciling the movie I saw with the movie I had in my head for years of what I thought this would be. I also saw "Jaws" for the first time this year and THAT film was exactly what I expected to be - and I loved it.

    Funny how Richard…

    I liked this better than I had expected to, based on its trailer, which I found really corny!

    It was cute!

    Rachael Leigh Cook was so cute. At first I was rolling my eyes at Rachael playing that typical nerdy character that she always plays, but then I thought, maybe Rachael is just like that? LOL. And they gave her this overly quirky car that I think can play only one song, ugh, which just happened on the show "Stumptown".…

    Groundhog Day


    My local theatre showed "Groundhog Day" on the big screen, so I went to go see it, even though I own it on DVD. I'm really glad that I did. I hadn't seen it in a really long time. I always dread seeing it, because I feel like it's going to be painful. (Not because of the quality of the movie, but because of Phil's journey.) Which it is. And yet.

    There was a lot of laugh out loud moments…
