Mean Girls Review

The second Broadway show I saw during my trip to NYC was Mean Girls. There were so many shows I wanted to see while I was there but the reason I saw Mean Girls is mostly Demarius Copes’ and Ben Cook’s fault. I saw them in Newsies back in 2015, the show that sparked my love of musical theatre. I wanted to see them perform again and everything felt very full circle. Mean Girls was a great show with lots of awesome choreography, awesome music, and awesome characters. I guess you could say it was totally fetch!

Movie of the Month: Bohemian Rhapsody

Hello and congratulations on surviving November (arguably the worst month of the year if you live in North America). I survived November by burying myself in movies and my favourite movie I saw this month was Bohemian Rhapsody. I know critics didn’t like it but I did so I’m gonna talk about it.

What is this Blog?

I started this blog because my mom told me to get a hobby since I was sadly unemployed between my first and second year of university. I think I sat on the couch and watched the entirety of the 2016 Rio Olympics. Anyways, it started as a place where I just wrote thoughts, things I wanted to say and had nowhere else to say them, and things I thought would be popular on the Internet.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Review

Back in October, I had the great joy of going to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts One and Two on Broadway in New York City. To say that was a dream come true is a bit of an understatement. It was a truly magical experience so I thought I’d share some of my thoughts with you. (This will be different than my other theatre reviews because it will be spoiler free #KeepTheSecrets).

In Which I Rank Disney Pixar Movies

Let me just start by saying that this post took about a month to write because I kept changing my mind about what movie deserved what position on the list (in the top 10). They’re all just so good! Over the years, Pixar has made some absolutely amazing movies. Since 1995, the studio has released 20 movies and I think I’ve seen them all so I thought it would be fun to rank them. Let’s go!

Movie of the Month: Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

I can’t believe how little I’ve talked about Harry Potter on my blog considering how much it means to me. Obviously, I’ve seen all the Harry Potter movies many times but Chamber of Secrets was on TV the other day and it was also my 100th movie of 2018 (I’m trying to get between 120 and 150) so I thought I’d talk about it.

TIFF 2018

I can’t believe I’ve lived in Toronto for the past 3 years and my self-proclaimed pretentious film trash self has never been to the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). I decided that had to change this year. If you don’t know, TIFF is a film festival that takes place for 10 days at the beginning of September and there are world premieres of upcoming major movies, Canadian movies, and movies from around the world. This year, there were 342 different films screened at TIFF and I got to see 3 of them.

I Went to New York City

Guys. It finally happened. I just got back from a 5 day trip to New York City! This has been a dream of mine since summer 2015 after I saw Newsies. I guess I can cross that off the bucket list. I had a week off from school and I knew that visiting NYC would be more enjoyable than in the summer or winter. I did all the NYC things while I was there – I went to Central Park and Times Square, I ate hot dogs and pizza and bagels from street vendors, I went for a walk along the high line, I saw some Van Gogh at the Museum of Modern Art, and obviously I went and saw three Broadway shows (without breaking the bank by the way, full reviews of those coming soon, stay tuned).
