Review of ‘Mean Girls’ Book, Movie, and Musical Adaptations Through the Years

Introduction:
As a dedicated gamer and movie buff, the “Mean Girls” franchise holds a special place in my heart. The original film, a sharp and witty portrayal of high school life, resonated with many of us who’ve felt like outsiders.

The Book That Inspired It All:
The phenomenon began with the book “Queen Bees and Wannabes” by Rosalind Wiseman. This insightful work delves into the complex social hierarchies of high school, providing a foundational backdrop for the movies.

“Mean Girls” (2004):
Directed by Mark Waters and penned by Tina Fey, this cult classic stars Lindsay Lohan as Cady Heron, who navigates the perilous social waters of high school after moving from Africa. The film also features memorable performances by Rachel McAdams (Regina George), Tina Fey (Ms. Norbury), and Amanda Seyfried (Karen Smith). The original “Mean Girls” is available for streaming on platforms like Paramount Plus and Showtime, and for rent or purchase on Apple TV, Amazon Video, and Google Play Movies. read more

Joaquin Phoenix: Exploring the ‘Joker’ and ‘Beau is Afraid’ Connection

“Beau is Afraid,” featuring Joaquin Phoenix, shares notable similarities with his previous role in “The Joker.” Both films are dark comedies that delve deep into the realm of mental illness, leaving audiences to grapple with the enigmatic and often unexplained mental state of the protagonist. Phoenix’s portrayal of complex characters in both films demonstrates a consistent theme of psychological depth and ambiguity.

In both “Beau is Afraid” and “The Joker,” the lines between reality and delusion are blurred, making it challenging for viewers to discern what is real and what is imagined. This ambiguity plays a significant role in shaping the narrative of each film. The films invite viewers into the troubled minds of the characters, where the boundaries of mental illness and reality are constantly in flux. This approach creates a sense of unease and curiosity, as the audience is left guessing about the true nature of the characters’ experiences and perceptions. read more

Ending Explained Spoiler Review Netflix’s ‘Leave the World Behind’

Spoiler Warning: This blog post contains spoilers for the Netflix adaptation of “Leave the World Behind”.

Netflix’s adaptation of Rumaan Alam’s novel, “Leave the World Behind,” presents a compelling narrative that intertwines the unease of a mysterious global disaster with the microcosm of individual responses. However, it’s the film’s unique ending that strikes a particularly resonant chord, especially in its portrayal of the younger generation’s reaction to crisis. read more

The Goode Family: The Unseen Satire Masterpiece That Predicted COVID-19 and Hilariously Mocked Woke Culture

In an almost unbelievable turn of events, “The Goode Family,” an animated sitcom from 2009, might have had a prophetic moment in its very first episode. Just like “The Simpsons” with its uncanny ability to predict the future, “The Goode Family” seems to have foreseen the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Goode Family’s Prophetic Opening: Within the first 30 seconds of the pilot episode, a character ominously talks about the world facing a threat from a “super antibiotic-resistant flu-like virus.” A decade later, the world was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The accuracy of this prediction is both astonishing and a bit eerie. read more

Disney Missed The Mark With “The Marvels” Movie – Review.

As a long-time fan of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I approached “The Marvels” with high expectations, especially given the buzz around cameo appearances of iconic characters like Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) and Captain America (Chris Evans) in the trailers. However, my anticipation quickly turned to disappointment when these scenes were noticeably absent from the actual film. This bait-and-switch tactic set a disheartening tone for the rest of the movie.

See the trailer they used here: read more

Choose Love Interactive Netflix Romcom Review

So, I just watched Netflix’s interactive romcom “Choose Love,” and honestly, I’ve got mixed feelings. First off, the concept is basically an Otome game come to life. You get to make choices for Cami that affect her career and love life. The love interests? Totally dreamy, all of them. There’s her long-time boyfriend Paul, her high school sweetheart Jack, and this rockstar named Rex.

But here’s where it gets a little sketchy for me: the acting. It’s bad. Cami even breaks the fourth wall, and that just makes it worse. However, the cinematography in some scenes is stunning, like the one with the white sheets—absolutely beautiful. And the way the studio lights hit Rex? Magic. read more

Barbie Movie Review From An Adult Doll Collector

As an adult doll collector, fan of ’80s and ’90s nostalgia, and a proud owner of a pink-dressed Azone Iris Petite, the Barbie Movie has been the highlight of my year. This film isn’t for kids; it’s a pop culture extravaganza tailored for grown-up enthusiasts like me.

With adult humor galore, such as Barbie’s comments about genitalia and the over-the-top macho Kens, the movie keeps you entertained throughout. Sugar Daddy Ken, Earring Ken, Pregnant Barbie, Midge, Allen, and even the “weird” Barbie – who is now getting a doll of her own – have unforgettable roles. read more

Super Mario Bros. New Animated Feature Length Movie Film Review

The Reviews for the new animated Super Mario Bros. movie are in, and they are not good. But, I decided to go see the film today and I really enjoyed it. FYI, I didn’t care for the 90s live action film, which is notorious for being the worst movie of all time to many film critics. Some of the critics are saying it’s better than the new 2023 movie, but I disagree. Despite bad reviews, I was happy with the new 2023 Super Mario Bros movie.

As a 41-year-old gamer girl who has grown up with the 8-bit NES and witnessed the evolution of the gaming world, the 2023 animated Super Mario Bros. Movie was a delightful and nostalgic trip down memory lane. read more

Free Guy Movie Review

Free Guy is the best film of 2021.

Here’s why:

You’ll love Free Guy if you’re a gamer!

First of all, I’m a huge gamer. You have to be a gamer to “get” Free Guy. If you’re not a gamer, this is one to skip. But for me, it’s my favorite film of the year. Not all will agree. My husband said 20 minutes into the movie that he didn’t understand it. I explained it by referencing Dead Pool, another film starring Ryan Reynolds. In Dead Pool, the main character realizes he’s inside a comic book. In Free Guy, “Guy” (Ryan Reynolds) realizes he’s inside a video game. Realizing that they cannot die, and that nothing they do matters, they develop an almost god like complex. But in Free Guy, Ryan Reynolds is actually a good guy and motivated by love. read more

The Mitchells VS The Machines Movie Review

The Mitchells VS The Machines is the #1 movie on Netflix today. I watched it on a whim this evening all by myself as I waited for my fiance to get off work. I went into the movie completely blind, knowing nothing about it at all. Within the first three minutes I was literally laughing out loud. I almost NEVER laugh when watching TV – I cry easy watching TV – and The Mitchells VS The Machines had me shed a few tears too before all was over.

It’s a movie with a lot of heart. The characters feel very real. Although flawed as the family might be, they have a very human like quality. It’s also very relateable due to the topics it includes. No, not robot apocalypses, but the themes of family, and growing up and fear of failure and taking risks and learning to let go, and let your children chart their own course. read more

Captain Marvel Super Hero(ine) Comic Movie Review About Girl Power & The Feminist Movement

I just watched Captain Marvel lastnight. For those living under a rock, Captain Marvel is the leader of Marvel’s Avengers. She’s a famous super hero(ine) and tough as nails army (airforce) girl turned super hero.

She’s not new, created by famous comic book legend, Stan Lee, and making her comic book debut in 1967.

The movie however is more recent, releasing about 2 years ago in March of 2019.

So just a heads up – yes I am a woman, but I am definitely not a feminist. I don’t really like the movement or concept that a woman can only be strong if she dresses and acts like a man. I am very much a girly girl. I don’t wear makeup (mostly cuz I’m too lazy and also have no idea how to wear it correctly lol). But I do love me some dresses, and I’d consider my personality to be more on the sweet and timid side and softly spoken, and also sometimes passionate or bubbly when I’m chatting about my interests. My interests may sometimes overlap with tomboy interests when it comes to geeky things like anime or video games, but that’s about it. I’m not into sports or whatever else most tomboy girls are into. read more
