Are you there Hollywood? It’s Judy Blume, finally allowing the movie industry to take a crack at her most beloved novel.

The author has been famously reluctant to let Hollywood adapt her hugely influential 1970 coming-of-age novel Are You There God? It’s Me Margaret, but has now granted the rights to the team behind The Edge of Seventeen. The long-awaited adaptation will be helmed by Kelly Fremon Craig, who made her directorial debut with the vastly underrated teen dramedy.

chilling adventures of sabrina clip

Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina looks as different as can be from the cheery Sabrina the Teenage Witch comic book and ’90s sitcom that it inspired. But there’s one returning element that is probably familiar to fans.

A new clip from the upcoming Netflix series introduces Sabrina’s animal familiar, Salem, a cat which spoke with a deep and sarcastic voice in the ’90s sitcom. But while fans probably won’t anticipate that same sarcastic tone from the cat, they can anticipate him being just as cute as they remember.

to all the boys i've loved before

Do you remember what it was like to have a crush on someone? Like a full-fledged, cheeks burning, fingers tingling kind of crush. One where your heart beats a mile a minute, and your tongue feels like toffee because oh my god, you’re drowning in those baby blue eyes. That’s what watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is like.

The teen romantic-comedy based on Jenny Han‘s YA novel of the same name is the latest entry in Netflix’s wildly successful rom-com Renaissance. And it is by far the best one yet. To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is simultaneously evocative of our favorite John Hughes movies while being wonderfully modern in the best ways. All together, those elements make To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before the new gold standard for what a teen rom-com should be. And here are the reasons why you should watch it immediately.

Here’s a bit of breaking news, as if everything happening at San Diego Comic-Con weren’t enough: after some theoretical rumblings earlier this year, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer reboot is now officially in development.

Cloak and Dagger ghost stories review

The theme of this week’s Cloak & Dagger episode, “Ghost Stories,” seems to be all about revelations. This episode was the anniversary of the deaths of both Tyrone and Tandy’s loved ones, so the overarching spirit of melancholy was even more intense than usual. But the mood was heightened by truths (both subtle and not-so-subtle) that were revealed over the course of the episode. Here’s what we learned this week. Read More »

The Package trailer

When I walked out of Universal’s teen comedy Blockers earlier this year, it seemed clear that actress Geraldine Viswanathan had a bright future. She was one of the funniest performers in a film full of funny people, so I’m glad to already see her popping up in another movie in 2018.

This one is called The Package, a Netflix teen comedy about a group of friends who go camping in the woods during spring break. But they soon realize that they need to save their idiot friend, who has accidentally cut off his own dick. Yep, all of a sudden that title makes sense. Watch The Package trailer below. Read More »
