Movie Crush: Foxfire

One of those fly under the radar films of the mid 90s is definitely Foxfire. It’s one of Angelina’s best and lets not forget the honorable mention of Jenny Lewis, later of Rilo Kiley fame and Jenny Shimizu. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jk3loe7cSQo In a true story of 90s girlhood and high school feminism these girls start by from…

Movie Crush: 10 Things I Hate About You

One of my most vivid memories in high school is seeing the film, 10 Things I Hate About You. This was coming fresh off my Shakespeare obsession in junior high when the Romeo + Juliet film that still inspires my life was released. Complete with a stellar late 90s cast and set in Seattle (strangely…

Yes, I love 90s movies. Almost to a fault. Enter one of the greatest summer camp movies ever, Camp Nowhere. Even as an adult running my own camp with all my friends sounds like an amazing idea. To be real I was obsessed with Andrew Keegan back in the day so that was my original…

Movie Crush: River’s Edge

There are some films that just stick with you. After only seeing the 1986 classic “River’s Edge” once, I never forgot it. It’s a pretty fucked up movie about a murder and the lives of these friends surrounding this event. Apart from that the film stars a young Keanu, Ione Skye, and Crispin Glover. While…

90s Crush : Jason Lee

I first fell in love with Jason Lee in the film Mallrats. It’s crazy that I actually remember watching it for the first time in my best friends living room. I think from that moment on we started prefacing everything with “true story”. Jason Lee started out as a pro skateboarder in early 90s famously…
