VOTD: Watch Cher’s Speech in ‘Clueless’ Performed by Adam Driver, Andrew Garfield & More

Clueless is one of those generation-defining comedies that has stood the test of time. It’s one of the best representations of the ’90s, albeit with a focus on a very niche demographic of upscale Los Angelenos living a mostly superficial, carefree life. Much of the film’s greatness comes from Alicia Silverstone‘s pitch perfect performance as the teenage Cher, a bubbly, confident and charming spoiled girl who manages to somehow be both down to Earth and up in the clouds at the same time. But wha...

Review: Ben is Back

— by BEV QUESTAD — The film begins on a cold, quiet New England road with bare tree branches and old grave markers. Soon we see a stone church, St. John’s Episcopal (est. 1894), in lightly falling snow. Backdropped by a gorgeous stained-glass window of St. John the Beloved seemingly blessing her, we see Holly […]

Even though it’s 2018, there are still religious zealots out there who believe it is their duty to help so-called sinful homosexuals pray their gay away.

Curls, Shags, & Beanies — How Mid90s Got Skater Hair Just Right

If you couldn't already tell by the title of Jonah Hill's directorial debut, mid90s, the movie is a throwback to the decade of teenage angst. But we're not talking about the Clueless kind, with Alaïa dresses and scrunchies everywhere. For Hill, the decade was mostly spent inside an L.A. skate shop, listening to A Tribe Called Quest and wearing éS SAL 23s. This movie isn't for the Cher Horowitzs of the worlds, but for the young Jonahs who found solace in a community of outcasts.For Hill to tell ...
