MCC Live-Tweeting: The “Sleepy Hollow” Season 3 Finale

Still pissed about how Sleepy Hollow ended.

Midlife Crisis Crossover!

Sleepy Hollow! In which Ichabbie bids us a clumsy, ill-conceived Ichabbye.

Okay, after a self-mandated 24-hour cooling-off period, I think I’m ready to tackle that Friday night fiasco.

Once upon a time, Midlife Crisis Crossover provided same-night recaps of every episode of Sleepy Hollow. I’m not a pro reviewer entitled to advance copies of any TV shows, so every recap was an intense, on-the-fly, two- to three-hour marathon writing session, thinking and typing as quickly as I could to combine plot summary with top-of-my-head commentary in 1500- to 2000-word bursts — partly to see if I could do it, partly because sometimes there’s an audience for such a thing. This formerly fun exercise became a thankless chore if I paid too much attention to the competition from actual pro websites given days to prepare their material so they can click “Publish” mere seconds after each episode ends. It’s a…

By Sumiko Saulson

60-black-women-in-horrorI’m proud to be the host of “Celebrating Black Horror History” during the month of February 2016. I would like to invite you, dear reader, to join us for an entire month of guest blogs, interviews, and offerings from the usual delightful staff here at HorrorAddicts.net that honor, highlight and celebrate the current and historical contributions members of the African Diaspora have made to the horror genre.

Master of Horror L.A. Banks and her contribution to Horror

L. A. Banks will always be my fav author.

HorrorAddicts.net

Black Women in Horror:

 Master of Horror L.A. Banks and her contribution to Horror.

“If my soul got jacked, where is it?”L.A. Banks

Happy Black History Month! I want to start this out in saying, yes, this blog post will be long and peppered in fangirl moments. I will drone on about the awesomeness of author L.A. Banks and her extraordinary writing skills in horror/thrillers. I will gawk at the idea that she is not praised as much as she should be, and I will tear up at the reality that this author’s incredible gifts have been lost to us in the literary world. This is my respectful tribute to her…it is what it is. -smile-

banks6In the world of Horror, in link with black women, there are only two names that comes to mind for me that have been cultural innovators and pop icons in this area…

I Want You to F*** Me: An Exploration of Female Sexuality and The Diary of a Teenage Girl

The movie was so good. But uncomfortable seeing the scenes between Minnie and Monroe regardless of the fact that Bel Powley was 21 when it was filmed.

The Lazy Audience

Contains adult content

Jim’s Dad: I have to admit, you know, I did the fair bit

[hesitates]

Masturbating when I was a little younger. I used to call it stroking the salami, yeah, you know, pounding the old pud.

[pause]

I never did it with baked goods, but you know your uncle Mort, he pets the one-eyed snake 5-6 times a day.

For years the portrayal of the emergence of male sexuality has been seen widely in cinema. From teen horny movies like American Pie to more intellectual movies like Boyhood but it is a rare and far in between appearance of the female sexuality seen. For the most part the female is the conquest or the trophy at the end of the journey. In movies like Superbad the mission is to bone a girl before they graduate and the only growth in sexuality we are even led to care about is…

Movie Review: The Diary of a Teenage Girl

Going to see this movie on Saturday!

Graphic Policy

teenagegirlposterBased on the autobiographic graphic novel by Phoebe Gloeckner, The Diary of a Teenage Girl is a brutally honest movie that shows that a film based on a comic can honor its source, but take itself seriously. The film may be the best movie based on a comic… ever.

Like most teenage girls, Minnie Goetze (Bel Powley) is longing for love, acceptance and a sense of purpose in the world. Minnie begins a complex love affair with her mother’s (Kristen Wiig) boyfriend, “the handsomest man in the world,” Monroe Rutherford (Alexander Skarsgård). What follows is a sharp, funny and provocative account of one girl’s sexual and artistic awakening, without judgment.

Going into the film I was aware of the topic at hand, but I was somehow still unprepared for the raw and honest portrayal I was about the witness. Running at 101 minutes…
