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. In a true story of 90s girlhood and high school feminism these girls start by from standing…

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…

Movie Crush: Camp Nowhere

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 : Beyond Clueless

I’ve been waiting so long to write a proper review of this documentary, “Beyond Clueless“. Last September I caught a screening when I lived in LA and enjoyed a lovely Q&A sesh with the director, Charlie Lyne. He explained how he spent months if not years watching hundreds of teen genre films from the 90s…

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…

I know you’ve missed me but not to worry, I’m back. I’ve made the move back to my home coast and things have really changed as expected. The one thing that gives me solace is my collection of films and music still kept in my old room. It sounds strange but it’s good to know…

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…

Movie Crush: The Rules of Attraction

Now I know I’m breaking the cardinal rule of the site by discussing pop culture after the 90s but what the hell. The Rules of Attraction which came out in 2002 could have easily been released in the 90s. I remember seeing this when I was in college with a whole group of friends. I…

Movie Crush: Before Sunrise

This is one of those films that immediately captured me when I watched it the first time. Within 20 minutes it just seemed like the most accurate portrayal of meeting a stranger when traveling. Thankfully, I’ve had few experiences exactly like this one, but there are a few people I’ve met while traveling that have…
