FREE 7-DAY TRIAL of Lifetime Movie Club!

This week I’m excited to be trying out a free seven day trial to the Lifetime Movie Club. I’m kind of addicted to their “Unauthorized True Story” series. My favorite is Saved by the Bell.

An Ode to Rape Culture

Last night I watched Hick,  a probably little-seen indie film from 2011. This isn’t going to be a movie review, though the film itself wasn’t bad. It feels a little scattered in places, which I attribute to it being based on a book, as if they just filmed some scenes without the further exposition and … Read more

Chloe Sevigny and The Hollywood Status Quo

So during Variety’s panel at the Cannes Film Festival  Chloe Sevigny spoke out about her experiences with inappropriate sexual comments from directors, etc. in Hollywood, which she shies away from even calling harassment.   The reaction?

Holy Ghost DVD Review & Giveaway Ends 08/27

Considering that the only other Christian documentary I’ve seen was Jesus Camp, which was so disturbing that I still keep it filed under “horror movies”, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Holy Ghost. It’s an interesting concept: a filmmaker and his crew decide to make a film led entirely by the Holy Spirit. No … Read more
