Bonus! Twilight (2008) Movie Review

December 28, 2021

Once upon a time, another Stephenie was also obsessed with vampires. Sexy vampires that glitter! But not so sexy you’d actually have sex with them before marriage, because that’s wrong. This Stephenie wrote a book that became a movie that became a phenomenon known as the Twilight series. The plot? Girl meets boy, boy is a bloodsucking fiend, boy has to help girl flee other bloodsucking fiends who aren’t good vegetarians like him. Truly a tale as old as time.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The metric tonne of pretty privilege at work here
  • Kristen Stewart’s pitch-perfect portrayal of teen girl horniness
  • Woman power behind the camera, and why we need more of it
  • These vampires are so silly and it’s great
  • Did Joyce write this movie? Because this movie is tripping balls

December 23, 2021

The Watchers’ Council woke up this morning and chose violence. Literally. While Buffy is dreaming of ice shows with daddy, Daddy Giles injects her with a suspicious substance. Coincidentally, Buffy’s powers begin to wane. It’s all part of a plan to test the Slayer by sending her into a deadly situation de-powered and utterly betrayed. Worst. Birthday present. Ever.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • The betrayal of fathers, biological and otherwise
  • Oh Faith, where art thou?
  • Our discomfort with a lot of the choices in this ep
  • Buffy is a serious badass with or without Slayer powers!
  • The real enemy, as usual, is the patriarchy

 

Trigger warnings

Drug use (forced), kidnapping, sexual harassment, torture

Joyce’s attempt support Buffy’s Slaying by bringing her dinner in a bag is cut short by the discovery of two murdered children. Scarred, Joyce creates an army of moms to take back Sunnydale from the witches and Slayers. And if she and Willow’s mom have to burn their daughters at the stake to do that, well, that’s a small price to pay for avenging the deaths of these two children no one had ever seen before.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • We learn Willow’s mom’s name rather quickly!
  • We will never tire of Buffy calling out Xander’s BS
  • The funniest name for the Devil
  • Angel’s heroic pep talk
  • Where is our gingerbread? LIES!

 

Trigger warnings

Bullying, child death

S3E10: ”Amends”

S3E10: ”Amends”

December 9, 2021

It’s the most wonderful time of the year … to feel guilty about murdering hundreds of people over the course of your undead lifetime. At first Angel tries to deal with this on his own, but when Buffy gets involved via her dreams, she and the rest of the Scoobies resolve to help him. Something is amplifying Angel’s guilt, and whatever it is won’t rest until Angel succumbs to his evil within … or takes himself out of the picture, forever.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • Buffy can’t pull off baby bangs. No one can.
  • Snow-less Cali Christmases are weird to these two Canadians
  • “Maybe you shouldn’t help” should be Xander’s motto!
  • At least Buffy and Angel can get it on in their dreams?
  • This ending is one of the heaviest to date

 

Trigger warnings

Sexual assault, suicide ideation/attempted suicide

S3E09: ”The Wish”

December 2, 2021

Cordelia is back and she’s over Xander Harris. So over him that she definitely isn’t pretending to kiss other boys or talking about him constantly. Eventually, she talks to the wrong (or right?) person, new girl Anya who shares Cordy’s love for designer labels but also happens to be a demon out to grant wishes of revenge. Cordelia’s wish that Buffy had never come to Sunnydale catapults her through the looking glass into a twisted version of her hometown … and Xander and Willow are still into each other! This girl cannot catch a break.

 

Hear us discuss…

  • So you’re just going to leave that demon corpse there?
  • We cannot with Xander’s revisionist history
  • All these actors are so old!
  • We are here for queer-coded vamp Willow
  • Steph is ready to be Asian Anya in the reboot CALL HER

 

Trigger warnings

Bullying, mechanical exsanguination, neck snapping, torture
