On the surface, “Star Trek Into Darkness” certainly looks like a typical dude movie. It’s got huge explosions, spaceships, fighting, and futuristic weapons. Obviously we would have loved it even if it was the most manly movie in history, but after seeing it for ourselves we were surprised to discover that, in many ways, it’s… READ MORE »

Just kidding, it’s not a new movie, it’s every Nicholas Spark book-turned-film ever. Which is your favorite? I like the one about the white heterosexual couple who is so in love but then they’re torn apart. You know, the one where they find their way back to each other — I love that awesome scene… READ MORE »

You’ve probably heard all the buzz and controversy about “Let Me In,” an American adaptation of the Swedish vampire flick “Let the Right One In.” Those who love the original swear that “Let Me In” can’t be half as good. I have to say… READ MORE »

You can learn a lot from chick flicks. According to our friends at Flavorwire, there’s a little nugget of knowledge in even some of the most mundane and fluffy chick movies. “The Devil Wears Prada,” for instance? It teaches us that “just because your boss is evil, doesn’t exclude him/her from being totally brilliant at… READ MORE »

Nick Waters may be a superhero, as far as I’m concerned. This brave, 28-year-old Oklahoma boy survived watching 30 chick flicks in 30 days. The idea came to him last year when he and his wife, Nicci (Nick and Nicci … that’s a rom-com waiting to happen), were watching a garden-variety, painful chick flick together. READ MORE »

According to our buddies over at Cracked, some chick flicks secretly hate women. Who’d’ve thunk it? After reading the list, we’d have to agree. Some movies for ladies really do appear to think less of women than you’d think. Take, for example, “Twilight.” Edward is a killer, and Bella … doesn’t really care? When Edward… READ MORE »

It’s easy to trash chick flicks, like Marisa Meltzer did this week at The Daily Beast. They set false expectations for women. The actresses are capable of more serious work. Blah blah blah blah blah….

But formulaic as the genre is known to be, you’ll still find us front row at the latest “He’s… READ MORE »

I’ve been waiting for this day for months. “(500) Days Of Summer,” which is guaranteed to be my new most favorite movie, is in theaters today! Sadly, however, I’m under the weather and likely won’t be getting off my couch to go see it tonight, as planned. Sniff. But the film, starring eternally… READ MORE »

Chick flicks are generally the lamest of movies, but we still watch them, making them huge blockbusters and giving them the longest of lifespans on Netflix. Of course, part of the reason we keep seeing them despite their high cheese factor is because we all want to believe in the possibility of happy endings, but… READ MORE »

You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book — I don’t know, I didn’t read it — but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love… READ MORE »

Women love movies. Dudes love movies too. Unfortunately, women and men don’t always love the same movies — that’s why we once vetoed a dude because he couldn’t see the cinematic power of Fear. When you’ve got a boyfriend or even when you’re just going on a date with someone new, going to the cinema… READ MORE »
