    The Witches of Eastwick

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I should have known this was going to be a 2nd wave gender-essentialist shitstorm from the opening scene where Cher is carving Goddess figurines. I like how the witches ended up coparenting in the mansion together? Should've been gay, tho.

  • Little Shop of Horrors

    Little Shop of Horrors

    ★★★½

    Theatrical ending: typical 1980s "nerds will inherit the earth" narrative
    Director's cut: actual Greek tragedy

    The Wedding Planner

    ★★½

    You know she's a Woman Who Cares Too Much About Her Job because she always has her hair pulled back in a severe bun.

    ★★★★½

    Honestly this took the best parts of Brave and Frozen and blew them both out of the water. Not only is there no male love interest, but there is no cliche pressure to marry at all. Not only is there great music, but it continues throughout, in perfect sync to the pacing. (Frozen, ya messy.) Disney finally figured out their princess-without-a-prince formula, AND made a baseline decent attempt to research the culture they were writing about. No, it's not perfect, but it's the best thing to come out of Disney in 15 years.
