    Destination Wedding

    ★★★½

    Took a while for me to get into the swing of it, at first the style of dialogue and the very narrow framing of the narrative threw me off, but once I got the feel of the very theater-like approach I ended up enjoying myself. Plus they're both so cuuuuuuute.

  • The Legend of Hell House

    The Legend of Hell House

    ★★★½

    It's clear this was trying to be a bloodier version of THE HAUNTING but I love THE HAUNTING soooo that didn't really bother me! I liked the spunky young goth medium and Roddy McDowall's turtlenecks and that gorgeously ornate house and the very Catholic kills.

    Professor Marston and the Wonder Women

    ★★★★½

    A biopic about a man that is actually about two awesome women who, when their powers combine, are basically Actual Wonder Woman. But also really a historical glimpse at polyamory (and bisexuality) and a little BDSM. Great performances, great story, and GREAT 20s-30s professor looks for Rebecca Hall. I have no opinion on its historical accuracy or on early Wonder Woman comics (since I've never read it) but as a straight-up unconventional, feminist, period romance, it totally worked for me.
