Chick Flicks: 101

Chick Flicks Blog HeaderI love  movies!

Movies like the old classic films.  Movies starring great actresses like Kathryn Hepburn, Bette Davis, Meryl Streep.  Romantic comedies with Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock. You name it. I love movies, especially  Chick Flicks.

My name is Clara, but you can just call me Clarabela. I started this blog a few years ago to share my love of movies with the world.

The topic is generally ‘chick flicks’, but as you will see, Just Chick Flicks uses a very broad definition of that term.

Why Chick Flicks?


I want to redefine the term ‘chick flick‘ to mean not only movies that feature women in a positive way, but also movies that appeal to women. Just Chick Flicks explores, discusses and reviews the movies women love and even some that we hate.

There are movies that touch your heart and appeal to your emotions, movies that focus on women’s issues, movies that help women have a better self-images and movies that entertain us and make us laugh, cry and think.

Yes, sometimes even sci-fi and Kung Fu movies. The definition is limitless.   This is the  place for movies that women love. The romantic comedies, the tear-jerker, the fairytale fantasies, the movie that stars a gorgeous man. All them in one place.

And that’s what Just Chick Flicks explores, the world of the CHICK FLICK!

No. I don’t wear the pointy ears, have a USS Enterprise uniform,  nor can I do that “Live Long & Prosper” Vulcan thing with my fingers. But I do like Star Trek. From the original series with William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy to the fantastic reboot, directed by JJ Abrams.
