Happy Valentine's Day to my lovers, my friends, my in-betweeners, and my single party people!
What's better than spending $100+ on a date night out? If you're like me, then staying in and watching some good movies is always better. Right now, streaming services have a slew of romantic films for you to cuddle up to and revel in the bliss of Hollywood-curated love. Netflix has gems like Obvious Child (2014), The Notebook (2004), and Her (2013). You can cry along to If Beale Street Could Talk (2018) or binge 90 Day Fiance on HULU. Or you can get a little wild and watch The Big Sick (2017) and Bridget Jones' Diary (2001) on Amazon Prime. No matter what streaming service you choose, love is in the air.
HOWEVER, if you're a gal like me, there's nothing like snuggling up with a good horror movie for any day of the year. Horror films are the epitome of comfort to me, so I have special one's I watch for every holiday. Krampus (2015) and Black Christmas (1974/2019) on Christmas, Jaws (1975) on the Fourth of July, and My Bloody Valentine (1981) for Valentine's Day (watch for free on Crackle)!
Harley Quinn: The Punk-Rock Butterfly Sprouted from the Chrysalis of Her Post-Breakup Depression- Birds of Prey (2020) Review
Behind every criminally successful man dressed like a clown, there is a Harley Quinn. She's a maniacal genius, a stone-cold chick, and she looks fabulous in white-paste makeup.
Audiences were first introduced to the live-action ‘Harley Quinn’ in 2016, when Suicide Squad hit theaters. Margot Robbie played Quinn brilliantly. With her ability to hit those comedic notes perfectly and execute those action sequences with animation and badass-ness, Robbie made the role of ‘Harley Quinn’ hers, just like Bale did with ‘Batman’ and Downey Jr. did with ‘Iron Man.’
The Harley Quinn you're introduced to in Suicide Squad is miles behind the new Harley created in Birds of Prey (2020). Not only is she going through a tough break up, but she is also on a war path of self-discovery, and her story is finally being told from the right perspective- the female perspective- both narratively and visually by writer Christina Hodson and director Cathy Yan
