Amy, Amy, Amy, you can absolutely do no wrong with me. Amy, you’re such a funny woman, you star in the NBC show Parks and Recreation, your Ask Amy webisodes makes me feel like I’m never alone, you’re besties with Tina Fey, you’re writing a book (which is going to be majorly awesome), and now you’re starring in the new Pixar film, Inside Out? Girl, you’re simply THE BEST! This exciting news about the film was released at ... Read More
I don't need to tell you that Mean Girls is the most hysterical, quotable movie of all time. You know it, I know it, it is fact. And the best part is, there's never a bad time to use a Mean Girls line. You are always regarded as witty and charming for pulling "she doesn't even go here" out of your ass at a party. It's a universal truth. But Christopher Rosa, an intern for NextMovie, just put us all to shame. This majestic creature takes Mean Girls love to the ... Read More
  It’s coming up on the sixteenth anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. A lot has happened since – Charles married Camilla, Will married Kate, and, oh yeah, Prince George was born (as if you hadn’t heard). The beloved princess and humanitarian was only 36 when she died, but her last few years were subject to such intense scrutiny that the media attention she received was blamed for her death.  These last few years, after her ...

You might be familiar with the colorful  lucha libre masks and the fighters that wear them. Luchadores, professional Mexican wrestlers, are real-life superheroes, even if in costume only. But not so many of us know about the babes in the ring who mirror them - las luchadoras. A documentary by journalist Marta Franco called "Las Luchadoras" exposes the flip side of Mexican wrestling and its powerful female fighters competing for space in a very traditional ... Read More
While Diablo Cody’s known for writing Juno, Jennifer's Body and Young Adult, Paradise is her first feature film that she’s written and directed! The film stars Julianne Hough, in which she transitions from a “good girl” to “bad girl,” after surviving a plane crash.

Are you a feminist, a woman, a filmmaker, or a combination of all three? The London Feminist Film Festival is putting out an open call for submissions for their second-annual festival. Their website states that “women directors from all countries may enter” and that films should be “feminist in their representation of women” or “deal with feminist issues.” Last year, over 1,000 people came out to the festival to watch films like ...

Director Sebastián Silva, best known for his film The Maid, has created the next manic pixie dream girl (MPDG) film. If you’re not familiar with the manic pixie dream girl trope, watch Feminist Frequency’s video. In short, the MPDG is a female character whose sole purpose is to teach an uptight male protagonist to let loose and enjoy life. Beyond that purpose, however, the MPDG seems to have no life of her own. Often the audience knows nothing ... Read More
  The stars have aligned, our prayers have been answered. It’s like the universe knew I just finished marathoning Daria for the…third time, and instead of watching “Is it College, Yet?” and feeling empty, I can watch what Daria’s high school reunion would be like and feel empty. YES! Okay, so it’s KIND of a drill. This is served up by the good people of CollegeHumor, so no, it’s not a real movie. Yet it totally could ... Read More
  That's right, our favorite charming heroine of Hollywood has now surpassed Miss Bella herself. Stewart was raking in the dough between May 2011 and May 2012, boasting $34.5 million that year alone. This past year, though, between May of 2012 and 2013, she dropped to $22 million. Meanwhile, Jen Law gained a whopping $26 million between June 2012 to June 2013, thanks to the epic Hunger Games blockbuster. (P.S. Lionsgate paid her $1 milli for the movie ... Read More
  “Women in prison? That’s so retro,” said Papa Garis after I explained my latest work assignment. It was Sunday afternoon, and I had emerged from my room after five hours of chain-smoking and watching the new Netflix series, Orange is the New Black. Yes, for work. I am living the American dream.  He’s right, though. The concept is hardly original. In fact women-in-prison movies are practically their own genre. So in honor of ... Read More
