Writer’s Block Halloween Movie Recommendations

It’s that time of year. The leaves are falling from the trees, you’ve dusted the cobwebs off your scarf and gloves, you have a weird unending craving for soup, the gourds are sitting proudly on shelves in grocery stores everywhere, and you’re feeling the need to reanimate some dead bodies with the power of electricity.Continue reading “Writer’s Block Halloween Movie Recommendations”

Captain Marvel (2019)

Cast: Brie Larson, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch. Director: Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Marvel finally had the common sense to make a female-oriented superhero movie.

After all, no one can deny thatContinue reading “The Struggle for Hetero-Free TV”

How To Love Boys

When I was in my awkward, painful late teens, romantic comedies were all the rage. Girls my age couldn’t stop thinking—and talking—about the dreamy guys featured in movies like The Notebook, Mean Girls and Twilight. (I realize that these must seem ancient by now.) We all wanted a Noah, Aaron, Edward or Jacob. But weContinue reading “How To Love Boys”

The Curse of the Video Game Movie

At the beginning of the year, I was asked to write a short introduction on myself to be used on the Writer’s Block website. Honestly, I don’t know how people are able to condense their entire person to less than three sentences and still manage to make themselves sound even remotely interesting.
