4 Netflix Originals You Haven’t Seen Yet

Well folks, the day has come. I have done it. I have signed up for my own Netflix free trial after years of bumming off my friend's family. I don't know how many others spend their Sunday nights combing through the obscure corners of Netflix, but there's some interesting stuff back there. And if you're looking for a... Continue Reading →


Black Swan (2010)

Not really a pop culture classic, but I definitely had my eye on this movie for awhile. It comes up every now and then in my classes, and from what I heard, Black Swan was right up my alley. Natalie Portman (who I believe won an Oscar for her role) plays Nina Sayer, a perfectionist ballerina - ambitious,... Continue Reading →

SuperBad (2007)

What a blast from the past. Everyone looks so young in this movie. Also, Jonah Hill and Emma Stone may have graduated to the Oscar-worthy elite, but Michael Cera will forever hold a special place in my heart. Getting right to the point, this movie has its highs and lows for me. Highs: Michael Cera singing.... Continue Reading →

Rushmore (1998)

Until yesterday, I had never seen a Wes Anderson film. I don't know much about the guy, other than he's a big fan of symmetrical shots. The things you learn at film school. Rushmore, I'm told, is one of his earlier movies. The story follows Max Fischer, an eccentric student with extracurriculars that are off the charts: play director,... Continue Reading →

Zodiac (2007)

I haven't seen many David Fincher films. I often confuse him with David Lynch for no reason. I've seen Gone Girl and I've seen Seven, but I could stand to add more to the list. Zodiac, my source (aka my roommate) says, is Guillermo del Toro's favorite Fincher film. The story follows the infamous Zodiac murders from the 1970s through the eyes... Continue Reading →

Lost in Translation (2003)

Well, I've never heard of this movie before, but I'm told by my roommate (and expert movie-guide) that it's one of the few Oscar nominations directed by a woman, so I suppose I should watch it. I have high expectations for this film, because I find that romantic movies are infinitely better with women calling... Continue Reading →

V-Day Watch List (indie edition)

I haven't watched a lot of the classic V-day movies. Haven't seen The Notebook. Or Sleepless in Seattle (I saw Meep-less in Seattle, the Phineas and Ferb episode though). So I can't review those. But if you're feeling like branching out in the romance-movie section, I can help you out. Diary of a Teenage Girl (2015)... Continue Reading →

The Breakfast Club (1985)

Sitting next to my roommate—the more educated film student of the two of us—I can see the giddy look on her face as she watches me, watching one of her favorite movies for the first time.
