Glow Up: Easy A vs The Princess Diaries

8/15/2018
More
Easy A and The Princess Diaries are two coming-of-age movies about young women in high school who get makeovers, stop being invisible, and have to figure out who they really are. Anne Hathaway is a comedic gift, Mandy Moore's Wild Hope is my favorite album of all time, and none of us appreciated the friendship of Heather Matarazzo as much as we should have.

Make a Killing: Gone Girl vs Wild Things

8/8/2018
More
Here are two movies where women have complicated crime schemes and the viewer goes on a real crazy ride - it's Gone Girl vs Wild Things. In this episode, I also take a moment to give an impassioned defense of the erotic thriller genre as a whole. Spoilers ahead for both films, but honestly I could tell you every beat of Wild Things and you should still watch and enjoy it.

Fear Factor: The Cabin in the Woods vs The Final Girls

8/1/2018
More
The Cabin in the Woods and The Final Girls are trailblazers in the world of horror, both very unique takes on the genre that play with scary movie tropes but have as many laughs as there are scares. I get way too earnest about my deep love and appreciation for The Final Girls and Malin Akerman. I swear it's a funny movie even though I talk about it with the gravitas usually reserved for movies like Schindler's List or Sophie's Choice.

Girl Power: Bridesmaids vs Spice World

7/25/2018
More
If you asked anyone to name a comedy about a group of women, girl power, and friendship, 9 out of 10 times they would say Bridesmaids. As the tenth and most correct person, I would say Spice World.

Mental Gymnastics: Silver Linings Playbook vs The Skeleton Twins

7/18/2018
More
I compare two dramedies about mental illness - one is a beautiful movie with an incredible cast that deserved a million Oscars and the other is a movie called Silver Linings Playbook. The one that deserves your respect and praise is The Skeleton Twins, and by the end of this episode you'd better have rented or purchased a copy. Also, I get into my oft-discussed hatred for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence, it's the opposite feeling of the true and real love I feel

Love is Blind: The Shape of Water vs Shallow Hal

7/11/2018
More
In one of my most important comparisons, I discuss forbidden love and ignoring society's judgments in The Shape of Water and Shallow Hal. The Shape of Water is the Amélie of the sea, NOT INTERESTED. However, I AM interested in Gwyneth Paltrow and I need her to come fix my life. All hail Goop.

Young at Heart: Big vs 13 Going on 30

7/4/2018
More
This week delves into two cautionary tales about being careful what you wish for as precocious kids wish to be adults in Big and 13 Going on 30. Jennifer Garner is pure sunshine and Tom Hanks is fine too.

Squad Goals: Fight Club vs Coyote Ugly

6/27/2018
More
This week's movies are both about a shy, down on their luck person who finds an inner strength within a group of like-minded individuals and comes out of their shell — it's Fight Club vs Coyote Ugly. Important takeaways: I teared up 5+ times while re-watching Coyote Ugly and Fight Club would be a better movie if it was from Helena Bonham Carter's point of view.

Meddling Kids: The Goonies vs BMX Bandits

6/20/2018
More
Quentin Tarantino said, "If we'd grown up in Australia, BMX Bandits would have been our Goonies" and I'm inclined to agree. Find out how these two movies about kids getting involved in the crimes of weird looking adults compare, and why Nicole Kidman will inspire you to tuck your t-shirt into your pants.

Smooth Criminals: Ocean's Eleven vs Ocean's 8

6/13/2018
More
Ocean's 8 is everything I could have ever wanted in a film. It's a perfect expansion of Ocean's Eleven and the Ocean's Universe (which I believe will one day rival the MCU). While I loved Ocean's Eleven, Ocean's 8 is now my favorite in the franchise. Find out how they compare in this episode, where I also get the chance to express my deep admiration for Sandra Bullock, America's Sweetheart.

Teenage Dream: Heathers vs Jawbreaker

6/6/2018
More
High school has never been as deliciously evil as in Heathers and Jawbreaker, but I'd pick the ladies of Jawbreaker to rule my school any day of the week.

Home Sweet Home: Home Alone vs Breaking In

5/30/2018
More
Two very different tales of home invasion: lighthearted bumbling robbers try to bust in on Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone and a slightly more organized team terrorizes Gabrielle Union and family in Breaking In. Basically, Breaking In is a superior reverse retelling of Home Alone and you should see it ASAP.

A Whole New World: Elf vs George of the Jungle

5/23/2018
More
If I'm going to watch a man-child try to impress a girl in the big city, I prefer one in a loincloth. Everyone loses their minds over Will Ferrell in Elf but we need to acknowledge the hunkiness and fun of Brendan Fraser in George of the Jungle.

Body Snatchers: The Thing vs The Faculty

5/16/2018
More
The Thing is a so-called classic horror film starring Goldie Hawn's husband and some other old dudes. The Faculty is a tour de force of perfect casting, clever writing, and some real scares. If I was in charge of Hollywood, I would implement a law that required every film to star Jordana Brewster and any offenders would be sent into the La Brea Tar Pit.

Adventures in Babysitting: Leon the Professional vs Maleficent

5/9/2018
More
These are two babysitters you probably won't find on Angie's List. Leon the assassin's love for milk can't keep Leon: The Professional from being a real creepfest while pointy witch Angelina Jolie makes Maleficent the feel good film of 2014.

Killer Instinct: Taxi Driver vs American Psycho 2

5/2/2018
More
If I'm going to watch someone plot a murder, I'm bypassing creepy shaved head Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver and going right for one-liner loving Mila Kunis in American Psycho 2.

Eye of the Beholder: Little Miss Sunshine vs Drop Dead Gorgeous

4/25/2018
More
"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" could really sum up Tasteless as a whole. This episode, I practice my Minnesota accent, complain about children, and reminisce over Kirstie Alley while defending the brilliance of Drop Dead Gorgeous over the mediocrity of Little Miss Sunshine.

Thick as Thieves: Reservoir Dogs vs B*tch Slap

4/18/2018
More
Quentin Tarantino is whatever, Zoë Bell is a goddess, Reservoir Dogs is a snooze fest, and B*tch Slap needs to be on everyone's must watch list ASAP.

No Holds Barred: Foxcatcher vs Bring It On

4/11/2018
More
Foxcatcher and Bring It On are about athletes, power, and paranoia. Wrestling and cheerleading are more similar than you may think! And Big Red is the John du Pont of teen films.

Manic Pixie Dream Girls: Amelie vs Elizabethtown

4/4/2018
More
If you want quirky women, look no further than this episode where I debate the Manic Pixie Dream Girl title given to Kirsten Dunst and her red hat in Elizabethtown. I also complain about Amelie sticking her hand in things and grinning from under her bangs. I miss Orlando Bloom.
