We’re talking about the Witch, including the history of Calvinism, the appeal of witches, and whether the film’s ending is empowering or not!
Welcome to 2021, an arbitrary flipping of the calendar that we still hope will bring us more joy than the dumpster fire we just experienced.
Bring it On brought us many iconic, quotable lines, plus a surprisingly nuanced example of cultural appropriation and the issue of white guilt.
Our lists this week are a good reminder of why we don’t usually take much time off. Buckle in, it’s a long one!
A boarding school for witch orphans, a bunch of imposters, and a griffin—it’s time for part two of our dive into Diana Wynne Jones’ Chronicles of Chrestomanci!
It’s once again time to judge Missy and Merri’s eclectic taste, featuring lots of horror, a long explanation of The 100, and judging the heck out of Leonardo Dicaprio.
Missy has lucked out once again, as Fake Geek Girls is taking a look at one of her favorite childhood book series: Diana Wynne Jones’ Chronicles of Chrestomanci!
What have we been up to? Merri’s seeing a LOT of Dakota Johnson, and Missy is watching Oscar bait and utter trash.
Join us as we talk about nationalism, the adventure film genre, Riley’s goatee, and being egregiously ahistorical.
There is no uniting theme to this week’s episode, other than that quite a lot of people die in the things we were up to.
