The Ten Most Iconic Movie Kisses of All Time

The Ten Most Iconic Movie Kisses of All Time

  Hermione and I have been in a rather romantic mood lately, so when a friend asked me what I thought were the ten best movie kisses of all time, I thought this was the perfect opportunity for a blog post! 10. Claire and John, The Breakfast Club (1985) Molly Ringwald and Judd Nelson This [...]

Kdrama Review: My Love from the Star

Kdrama Review: My Love from the Star

We've finally returned with another kdrama review! (You can read our Boys Over Flowers review here and our Cheese in the Trap review here). Today's drama is another old favorite, as we actually watched it last summer and absolutely loved it. But alas, alas SOMEONE—not naming names—put off writing her part of the review for [...]

Parasite’s almost-romance is everything missing from Hollywood

Parasite’s almost-romance is everything missing from Hollywood

{spoiler warning} In the movie Parasite, there is a scene where Ki-woo takes Da-hye’s arm and feels her pulse. He is her new tutor; he is wonderfully cocky, even with Da-hye’s rich mother watching, and he looks at Da-hye like she is the only person in the world. “I only care about how you seize the flow,” [...]

So Many Books, So Little Time: April

Greetings Peasants. One of the few positive effects of this incredibly inconvenient quarantine is that I have had basically unlimited time to read whatever I want.

Friends, Romans, Blogosphere April 2020: mmhmm yes Ramin Karimloo and that’s about it

Friends, Romans, Blogosphere, lend us your ears! It’s been THREE LONG YEARS, but we are BACK BABY! Yeah, so you know how I mentioned earlier that Hermione and I are ambitious brainstormers, but we don’t post half the stuff we draft? It came to my attention that we haven’t done a life-update post since 2017 [...]
