Redefining The Chick Flick!
I have always loved movies. I really love great movies, featuring strong female characters. Movies starring great actresses like Kathryn Hepburn, Bette Davis, Barbara Streisand. Romantic comedies with Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock.
You name it. I love movies, especially the Chick Flicks.
Why Chick Flicks?
I started this blog to share my love of movies. The topic is generally ‘chick flicks’, but as you will see, Just Chick Flicks uses a very broad definition of that term.
Just Chick Flicks wants to redefine the term ‘chick flick‘ to mean not only movies that feature women in a positive way, but also movie 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-image 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!
Not only will you get a taste of your favorite romantic comedies, but you will get a hefty dose of the classics, Hollywood hunks [Hello, Hugh Jackman and Idris Elba!], action chick flicks and yes, even Star Trek movies. (What, you didn’t know Star Trek movies are chick flicks? Oh yes they are!)
