It’s Hallowe’en and we’re happy to present the last episode in our month of spooky rom-coms, the 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick. What’s better than Cher, Susan Sarandon and Michelle Pfeiffer as a fun-lovin’ witch coven? We’re not sure if there is anything better. In our version Jack Nicholson probably wouldn’t have stolen the show, but it is bewitching how he goes from confusingly vulgar to super attractive within very little time. Late ’80s Nicholson’s still got it.
This week we also welcome special guest Stacey Sproule. Check out her website, she’s amazing: http://www.staceysproule.com/
Episode 35 – THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK
We continue our month of spooky films with the 1990 epic romance Ghost. It’s Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Whoopi Goldberg, and, containing the famous pottery wheel scene, it definitely brought the sexy back to ’90s ghost movies (suck it Ghost Dad).
And yeah, you totally forgot this movie is amazing.
Episode 34 – GHOST
Check out our latest episode, continuing our month of spooky-themed romantic comedies, as we discuss the 1998 film Practical Magic. Packed full of witchery, family curses, death, loss, mourning, murder, reanimation, possession, exorcism and so much Faith Hill. Also, this magic is not at all practical, it’s pretty messed up.
Episode 33 – PRACTICAL MAGIC
This week we celebrate Thanksgiving with the 1995 film Home for the Holidays. Only the second directorial effort by Jodie Foster, the film boasts a stellar cast, some crazy family antics, a misplaced turkey, vintage puffy coats, familial revelations and a romance where it was seriously least expected.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Episode 32 – HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS
Join us for the latest episode where we discuss 1995’s feature-film reboot of Casper. Full of light, kid-appropriate fun with just a touch of haunting morbidity, this film packs in one of our favourite ’90s romantic comedy players, (and movie dads), Bill Pullman, the comedy stylings of heavyweights like Eric Idle, an actually cool, relatable female lead in Christina Ricci… and a lot of high-profile cameos for some reason.
Some fans of the original comics or the TV show might question why the baby-shaped, cartoon “friendly ghost” would be such a horn-dog for Christina Ricci, but us preteen girls circa 1995 all know it is because it was really DEVON SAWA, even if it was only for a moment…
