Is this your first visit to Just Chick Flicks? Let me show you around.
I started this website to write about my love of movies and to redefine the term ‘chick flick‘. The term chick flick has a bad rap, it should 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 better self-images and movies that entertain us and make us laugh, cry and think.
Yes, I write about romantic comedies, but I also include plenty of classic movies, a few musicals, few of my favorite Hollywood hunks (hello, Hugh Jackman!), action chick flick and yes, even Marvel and Star Trek movies.
These are a few blog posts that will give you an idea of what Just Chick Flicks is all about.
My Very First Blog Post
Tearjerkers or Why I like to Cry at Movies was inspired by Imitation of Life, the 1955 movie starring Lana Turner, Juanita Moore, Sandra Dee and John Gavin. I was watching it one night and wondered how many other people like to cry at sad movies.
The Post I Enjoyed Writing The Most
My review of The Princess and the Frog was fun because I saw the movie on a Sunday afternoon along with 30 little girls in the three rows behind me. A Princess and the Frog birthday party with 3o little princesses filled to the brim with sugar and the anticipation of a beautiful new princess, a handsome prince and a happily ever after.
The Post With A Great Discussion
The Ugly Truth About Dating started a lively discussion about love and dating and marriage.
The Post With A Title I Am Proud Of
Chick Flicks: Only Pretty Girls Need Apply. This clever title is a review of a cute chick flick, title Penelope and my rant about our concepts about beauty and love.
The Post That I Wish More People Had Read
I was a big fan of the TV show Ugly Betty. Based on the Mexican novella (soap opera), Ugly Betty was funny and heart-warming. I wrote a review of the final episode, Saying Good-Bye to Ugly Betty that I wish more people had read.
