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…

Inspiration: Still Frames

Disturbing Behavior (1998)  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…

Throwback Thursday: Welcome to the Dollhouse

Welcome to the Dollhouse is a dark comedy about a girl in 7th grade going through the awkward stages of growing up. I watched it when it came out in the 90s and at first I wasn’t crazy about it. Probably because it’s much too similar to my own junior high experience. Let’s be real,…

Throwback Thursday: Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet

For as long as I could remember I have been obsessed with Romeo and Juliet. The passion, the intensity, and the beauty of the story. Even though yes it has a tragic ending it still is one of the most amazing pieces of literature ever. In eighth grade we were reading Shakespeare in school and…

Throwback Thursday: “Drugstore Cowboy”

Time for another throwback to the days when new music and movies for me ran rampant. I often get discouraged in times today because it seems I’m always looking toward. It’s been quite a while since I’ve seen Drugstore Cowboy and thank goodness Netflix has it up on Instant Watch. Told from the perspective of…

Film Style File: Last Days by Gus Van Sant

  Gus Van Sant’s film, Last Days is a visual portait of a troubled grunge rocker bearing more than just an uncanny resemblance to the late frontman of Nirvana. While he never names Kurt Cobain by name, the likeness is unmistakable. The film which was released in 2005, was met with a substantial amount of…
