  • You've Been Rooting for Slytherins All Along

    When Harry Potter and the Cursed Child released in July, it created a lot of buzz for a lot of reasons (the most obvious being that it was New! Canon! Harry! Potter!). One of those reasons was that after two decades of the Harry Potter fandom widely accepting that there were three “good” Hogwarts houses and one “bad” one, the protagonists of Cursed Child were both members of Slytherin house.

  • The Wonderful Adaptions of Oz

    We’re off to see The Wizard! The wonderful Wizard of Oz. Or should we say the wonderful adaptations of Oz? The timeless classic The Wizard of Oz opened nationally in theaters seventy-seven years ago today. To celebrate this 1939 film and the L. Frank Baum novel it was based on, here are a few of our favorite film and TV adaptations of The Wizard of Oz.

  • The Muses: Zelda Fitzgerald & Co.

    The literary incarnations of Zelda Fitzgerald are, perhaps, the original Manic Pixie Dream Girl. Though the term wasn’t coined by critic Nathan Rabin until over 50 years after Zelda’s death, the various characters based on her bring life, spirit, wealth and power to their chosen suitors.

  • The Star Trek Suicide Squad

    The rise of the anti-hero has been long heralded in pop culture, especially in the era of Peak TV. The Tony Sopranos and Walter Whites of television have battled their inner demons as morally ambiguous protagonists. While this is a less common archetype in recent science fiction and fantasy films, there are a few who step forward to test their level of morality.

  • The Totally Bangin' Stranger Things + My Best Friend's Exorcism Mixtape

    It has truly been a super(natural) summer thanks, in large part, to My Best Friend’s Exorcism and Stranger Things. These two pop culture sweethearts are truly a match made in hell. They have given us an eerily similar glimpse at the world of demons and aliens with an ace 80’s twist. They both are heartwarming stories about friendship that scared the living daylights out of us. Maybe most importantly though - they both would have killer soundtracks.  Thankfully, the folks over at Stranger Things have promised us a soundtrack is lurking right beyond the next corner, but what we MBFE + ST geeks are really waiting for is the perfect 80’s mixtape that combines both.

    Wait no more.

    Tons of Spoilers Ahead.
