Oh geez, really?

So some cool men have been looking at the trailer for my movie Molly and were apparently super threatened by it? How in the Good Lord’s sweet name is the patriarchy to survive now that there’s a little tiny indie movie out there with a female lead!? THINK OF THE…

Social Media Musings

I should admit that, most of the time, I can barely work up the interest to keep up to date with what my closest friends are doing, especially on social media. I mostly just read up on Marvel movie rumours and whatever’s going on with Henry Cavill’s moustache today. Answer:…

5. High Fidelity Am I the biggest John Cusack fan? No. Am I a fan? Not particularly. But I never dislike him. At any rate, this film kicks ass. Mostly because the main character is a compulsive list-maker (Coincidence? I THINK NOT!) In this scene Cusack is trying to hide…
