Movie Crush: Highway

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…

Inspiration: Still Frames

Disturbing Behavior (1998)ย  Apart from music being the most important thing in my life, the vast area of 90s films run a close second. When I think about some of my favorites, I find that still frames from each film pop into my head. In a departure from the usual Sunday inspiration posts, I’ve gathered…

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…

Film Crush: Little Birds

Just a few weeks ago I was doing my usual browse around the Netflix streaming app, which is as routine as brushing my teeth at this point and I found the indie gem, Little Birds. The film was released in 2012 with great reviews from the Sundance film festival and other national press outlets. I’m…

Movie File : Mysterious Skin

Mysterious Skin, directed by Gregg Araki is one of the most powerful films I’ve ever seen. It was released in 2004 so it doesn’t quite fit the 90s mold, although the story does take place in the 90s so there’s your connection. Adapted from the book by Scott Heim, the story follows two boys growing…

Film Flashback | Kalifornia

One of the many reasons that I love Netflix is the ability to drag up some random b movies in my search for something to watch. It seems that I spend more time deciding what to watch than anything else. Much to my amazement I found that “Kalifornia” was just re-added back to the game….

Throwback Thursday : Pump Up the Volume

Who doesn’t love a little Christian Slater? Especially when he’s running a rogue radio station while still in high school. I wish when I was 16 I could have run my own station from my mom’s basement. Oh yes, and of course in true 90s fashion style. The film came out in ’90 but has…

Throwback Thursday : Poison Ivy

If there was ever a film in the 90s that I still want to live in, it would be Poison Ivy. I wish that I could say that I relate more to Drew Barrymore’s character with her never ending confidence and badass leather jackets, but I definitely was more like Sara Gilbert’s character growing up….
