We may be a little old to go see Disney movies by ourselves (although not too old to belt out “Part Of Your World” the shower). But we’ll be dragging the nearest seven-year-old to drag to a theater and to see “Brave,” Pixar’s newest computer-animated film with a female protagonist. Lots of Disney flicks star princesses who are sweet, passive, and looking for love; “Brave” stars a spunky gal who is a skilled archer and not content with the life her parents want for her. Princess Merida lives in the Scottish highlands and defies her parents wishes and insists on following her own path in life. Pixar has released a three-minute clip from “Brave” (longer than the teaser trailer they released before) and we have to say we’re digging it! Anyone down for a mass-Frisky reader movie-going trip?

We Might Be A Wee Bit Excited Judy Blume’s Book “Tiger Eyes” Is Finally A Movie

Bad Library Books
The worst library books ever. Read More »

Finally, finally, one of Judy Blume’s books has been made into a movie … and we might just be a wee excited about that. Tiger Eyes, one of her more grown-up YA books, is about a 15-year-old girl named Davey whose mom uproots the family to move in with relatives in New Mexico after their dad is shot during a hold-up. Davey has to come to terms with her grief, accept her mother’s new boyfriend into her life, and see if she can grow close to Wolf, a friend in her new town who’s the only person who seems to understand her. “Tiger Eyes” the movie will star Willa Holland from “Gossip Girl” and Amy Jo Johnson from “Felicity”; the script was written by Judy Blume and her son, Lawrence Blume.  It’s coming out later this year. 

Seriously, how is it possible this is the first time any of Judy Blume’s books has been made into a film but there have been 17 “American Pie” movies? [Entertainment Weekly]

Today’s Lady News: Indiana Politician Regrets Comments Associating The Girl Scouts With Planned Parenthood

  • Indiana Rep. Bob Morris (R-Fort Wayne) has admitted that calling the Girl Scouts the “tactical arm of Planned Parenthood” was perhaps a bit “inflammatory.” You think? [Queerty
  • A judge in Dallas, TX is refusing to marry straight couples because, as a lesbian, it’s not a right afforded to her. “I’m sorry I don’t perform marriage ceremonies, because clearly the state does not have marriage equality and until it does I’m not going to partially apply the law to one group and not apply it to another group of people,” said Judge Tonya Parker. “It doesn’t seem right for me to perform ceremonies for people that can’t be performed for me.” [Uptown] Keep reading »
