13 Nights of Halloween: The Craft

Yes, these days the Halloween celebration has spread across the entire month of October but over on the couch we believe in good ol’ fashioned THIRTEEN nights! I would like to say it’s to honor the ABC family days, but it also might be a bit because drawing out a list of 31 flicks didn’t seem like an achievable goal? Anywho, to kick off the first night we are celebrating the 1996 horror/fantasy cult classic, The Craft. Let’s go put some hexes on some popular girls! The GOOD The Cast: Right out the gates we have to hand it to the iconic cast of this movie. We have Neve Campbell and Skeet Ulrich who would both go on to star in Scream later that same year. Christine Taylor as our blonde bully, Robin Tunney as the new girl/hero of the story, and of course, from Waterboy fame and queen of playing insane, Fairuza Balk. Wrapping up the foursome of witches we had Rachel True and these witches together (for the first half of the movie …

‘Beautiful Thing’ Review

The LGBT appreciation continues with the review of not just one of my favorite LGBT movies, but one of my favorite movies PERIOD of all time- Beautiful Thing. Talk about a film before it’s time! I discovered this movie back in 2006. As a gay teen with little places to find representation (let alone a sign of hope), this film REALLY left a stamp on my soul that maybe things don’t have to be so bad! Following Ste (Scott Neal) a stern teen with an abusive father and brother along with Jaime (Glen Berry) his next door neighbor with a rocky mother-son relationship of his own, we have the first (and only?) gay teen romance movie! There are no negatives! I just want to take the time to highlight what made this film such a timeless icon. Not Another Gay Tragedy: When it comes to gay representation we are usually given the gay comic relief or the story of the gay tragedy. The latter has not been in short supply when it comes to gay …

The Pod Appreciates: Hey Arnold!

Welcome to our first ever ‘Appreciation Podcast!’ In this episode we are sitting on the couch discussing everything we love about the hit 90’s cartoon show Hey Arnold!
