abbieprime: stfueverything: dbvictoria: With all the heat Anita Sarkeesian gets for her Tropes series, you’d think it was a new topic, but Gene Siskel & Roger Ebert had a discussion on a similar theme when they were talking about the influx of slasher movies on their show in 1980. (x) 34 years later and this…

isisnocturne1369: micdotcom: Watch: Haley Atwell’s response to on set sexism is just perfect — but honestly, so is this whole feminist panel. This was one of the BEST panels at SDCC! from Tumblr https://chelsmark.tumblr.com/post/124705789125

Screening Numba Two: The Babadook

This. Movie. Scared. The. Shit. Outta. Me. I don’t usually watch horror films—mostly because I’m a gigantic chicken. Also because I feel like the current state of mainstream horror cinema is just torture porn. I hate that. This film was in no way in that category. One Line Review: “A thoughtfully creepy and engaging horror…

First Screening of Sundance 2014: The Overnighters

Another amazing benefit of volunteering is that we get special early volunteer screenings. These are almost always guaranteed entry and also act as a really nice reunion with all the faces I haven’t seen in a year. This year’s first volunteer screening was the documentary “The Overnighters”. One line review: “This film captures the dark…
