Feminist Movie Review: Interstellar (2014)

Interstellar (2014) is one of those films that doesn’t suggest in the trailers that it’s going to be as complicated as it is. I still don’t understand what happened or how it all worked, but that’s usually a given with Christopher Nolan films – I’ve watched Inception (2010) many times but still don’t really get that.

“Brooklyn 99” is 99% for Women

Cop shows – you either love ’em or hate ’em. I greatly enjoyed the original CSI for a period of time, but I eventually lost interest.

My own personal word count is currently at 25,000 so I found myself with time to make a post here. The halfway point also strikes me as a good opportunity for… Read More

Why I Re-Watch Firefly: It’s Shiny

I know it’s out-of-date, I know the show has been finished since before I graduated. But I know, too, the bitterness will never end. So here it is in a neat little package, why I still re-watch Firefly. 1. It’s shiny. 2. Joss Whedon is awesome. 3. Psychopathic, super intelligent, weapon wielding young woman? Um,… Read More
