The casting is so good in this esp Juliette Lewis and her younger part Sophie Thatcher. Sophie’s mannerism is so perfect with Lewis’. And this is Lewis’ best role in years.
Christina Ricci: When we first meet Misty as an adult, I think what she wants is to return to a time when she was valued, accepted, and had some social currency. Because, in our culture, a woman like this really doesn’t have any! [But] when they were stranded, I think that is probably the greatest time of her… Read more
In his seventh and final year at Hogwarts, Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) was (quite understandably) too preoccupied with other matters—like the return of Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) to take over the entire wizarding world—to focus on his coursework Read more
The Pennywise dance scene was incredible. Great choreography, audacious theme and choice of music. And it’s just inspiring to watch Siwa bravely embrace being openly gay despite having grown up in the public eye with all its attendant pressures.
What the fuck has this site become?
Cannot believe that Quirrell also played the biggest badass on The Terror. Fucking unrecognizable.
Sure, it’s common knowledge, but thank you for the reminder of just how great Alan Rickman was in Galaxy Quest.
How can you look at that picture ant NOT think they should be singing
“I see a little silhouette-o of a man...”?!
Ian Hart is great. He got his big break in TV as a supporting character in an iconic 80s drama series One Summer, starring David Morrissey.

I submit into discussion two honorable mentions: Nobody’s Side and One Night in Bangkok, both from the musical Chess. Ulvaeus and Andersson wrote the music, with Ulvaeus writing the lyrics.
Solid list, but I was hoping to see “Does Your Mother Know” on this list.
Yeah if you asked me how many rooms were on the show, I might’ve said twenty-something at best, not counting the slight tweaks they made along the way.
One thing I’m noticing is how series of the early aughts had such a different tone from series of the teens. I think Community is the best (meaning the best Halloween episode) and seems to bridge the gap between the aughts’ ironic detachment and the teens’ New Sincerity. Read more
Choosing just one Bob’s Burgers Halloween episode is tricky since all of them are great. I might have gone with Fort Night, but there are no wrong answers. Like the Christmas episodes they’re all winners.
I unabashedly love Boyz 4 Now’s “I Love You So Much (It’s Scary)” and it (esp. the video) is a spot-on parody of “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)”.
