Forever an unapologetic Lost apologist – a season one retrospective

Confession: I love Lost. Not just the first few seasons, I love Lost seasons one through six. I love the series finale, feel no resentment towards the ending we were given, and felt thoroughly satisfied when I first experienced those emotional character reunions, that comprise the final chapter of this ambitious, crazy, innovative series.

Top 5 films featuring women loving women – celebrating Pride month

Besides the coming of summer, June is also Pride month celebrating LGBTQ+ culture. I feel like this year in particular, we’ve all been tragically reminded of how important it is to defend and embrace the celebration of Pride worldwide. To keep on living and loving openly and proudly so. In the spirit of this I thought I’d share…

The Fabulous Baron Munchausen – Visual imagination and adventure

Today, it seems we can make anything appear realistically on screen. If you can summon the image in your mind, some technologically savvy artists will probably be able to conjure it up on the big screen as if it belonged in the ’real world’. A dinosaur looks like a dinosaur rather than a mechanical puppet, people are able…

Gleefully chomping away on the 2nd season of Fear the Walking Dead

Three episodes into the second season of Fear the Walking Dead and it’s beginning to get really good. It took a little time finding its feet and taking that illusive leap from ‘okay’ to ‘excitement-inducing good’, but with its latest episode (2×03 “Ouroboros”) Feartwd managed to do so for me.

Have no doubt, that I will be celebrating the coming of spring and its warmer days by staying indoors and getting reacquainted…

Inland Empire (2006) – A hermeneutist’s dream

”Do you wanna go see (insert film)?” – Never one to pass up a trip to the movies this is one of my absolute favourite text messages to receive at any and all times. On one particularly memorable occasion the film to go see was Inland Empire – More things that happened a reworking of…

The joys and woes of a TV-series junkie and her binging

I am admittedly a TV-series junkie. It is my drug of choice. I crave the complete immersion into a fictional universe for some reason. I wish to be engulfed. I actively hope to care too much about the life choices of fictional characters. I love being involved – simply put I love being a fan….

Welcome to PopCultureChatterbox!

A personal blog where me, a young woman in her mid-twenties, will aim to dissect, promote, reflect on and just generally ponder the film and tv experiences that make me think, feel, cry, laugh and shout out loud. Simply put, I love stories! And I am crazy excited about the boundless brilliance of so many stories told in…
