Welcome to our movie blog!

We’re Meg and Sue, best friends who love movies. We’ve been friends for 11 years (and counting—we’re stuck with each other). In that time, we’ve probably seen over 100 movies (Let’s be real. We’ve seen over 100 movies in the last 7 years alone.) $5 Movie Tuesdays (now $5.75 Movie Tuesdays, which doesn’t hold the same ring) really played a big role in increasing the frequency of our movie adventures. Who can resist a half priced movie?

Then two years ago, one of us—or possibly, since we (figuratively) share a brain—came up with the bright idea that we should try to see all the movies nominated for the Oscars. In four weeks, we managed to see eight movies. Since seeing Oscar movies more or less makes us almost movie critics, we’ve really taken it to heart. After we see a movie, we have in depth discussions about all aspects of film, from acting to editing (most likely the downfall of all current DC comic movies. Call us. We can still save you!)

A growing number of people seem to cast off movies as nothing special. But really, there is something uniquely enjoyable about going to the cinema.

Now, that’s not to say we agree on every movie we see. There have been movies that almost ruined our friendship (Breaking Dawn: Part I was a low point). There have been movies we both loved and movies we both hated (please see our rating system). It’s all part of the fun!

Whether the critics say a film is good, bad, or in between, we’ll probably see it. Honestly, our standards are pretty low. After all, we willingly saw The Huntsman: Winter’s War. (How could a film with A-List actors like Charlize Theron, Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain, and Chris Hemsworth be so very, very bad?)

A few things about us and this blog:

  • Together, we make the perfect writing team. Sue writes the reviews, Meg edits them. (Sue is not the most concise person in the world, so everyone should be thankful or you would be reading 10 page reviews). Most of the time we agree on movies (because we’re kindred spirits) so most of the reviews express both of our opinions. Honestly, we haven’t fully disagreed on a movie yet, so we’ll cross that bridge when it comes to it. Maybe we’ll have review wars? (No we won’t.)
  • The reviews are usually posted as written by one person. Blogs as both of us. Confused? Us too. (Blame Sue.)
  • Meg is the one who makes the website beautiful. Sue can barely upload a Word Document to Google Drive. (It’s true.)
  • Sue thinks the greatest scene in cinematic history is a monkey (ape) riding a horse with a machine gun from Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. There’s no sense in arguing with her. A close second is from Mad Max: Fury Road with the guy who plays the flame throwing guitar. What a time to be alive.  

So, whether you like or dislike our reviews, agree or disagree with our opinions, just remember we’re doing this for fun so don’t be a hater.
