  1. All I really remember about the bride wore black is that the husband gets shot on the steps of the place they get married.

    Oh, I think I get this now.

    Yes, yes, I approve.

    • Right? I used to love being from North Carolina. There are a lot of wonderful people here but geeze. Things should be getting better for women, not worse.

      I fell asleep in the theater during Mr.& Mrs. Smith. I found it incredibly boring. I know I’m in the minority but I don’t find Angelina Jolie attractive or particularly interesting at all.

  2. I used to manage a dollar theatre. After closing, I had no less than 14 private showings of Mad Max with some girlfriends.

    • Ok so my issue with Colossal is, pacing and plot problems aside, why must the petty emotional problems btwn two white Americans lead to the actual deaths of hundreds of Koreans? Like the destruction of Seoul by two drunk white people is played for laughs a lot

  3. I used to know several lines from Practical Magic by heart! I’ve watched it countless times!!!
    It was the primary cause of my huge crush on Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman.

  4. Wait, I haven’t seen practical magic either… have I been gaying wrong this whole time??

    • Nah you can’t be gaying wrong, you made it here after all. ;)
      It’s just a gem of woman power getting together and supporting each sorta film, it’s fun and there are cool spinster aunts.

  5. A few of mine:

    Kill Bill
    8 Women
    So Close- Shu Qi as Lynn…Sigh!There is an interesting premise/start of a relationship between her younger sister and a cop.

  6. I saw Fury Road in theaters and bought the when it came out but haven’t watched it yet for some reason? So thx for the reminder!
