After the disappointment of Wonder Woman, a project that Joss was slated to write and direct several years ago and that fell apart for various reasons, I am so happy that he is back on board with a high-profile superhero project, Marvel’s The Avengers, a big-budget, special-effects-laden extravaganza.  As any serious Whedon fan knows, Joss […]

I’m going back a few years for this one, but Aquamarine was on TV last week, and I was reminded how much I love this movie.  Yes, it’s mostly for preteens and has lots of silly preteen moments, but at heart it’s a sweet story about friendship and selflessness. If you’ve seen Aquamarine, you may […]
