Scarier, Funnier, Gayer: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part Three Review

Strap in everyone, we are going to hell!

It may not be Halloween, but it’s certainly dark times in good old Greendale. Everyone’s favourite witch is back and she’s more irresponsible than ever. Sabrina Spellman (portrayed by Kiernan Shipka, world’s best casting decision of all time) continues to carry the famous Harry Potter torch of Teen-With-Magical-Ability-Who-Puts-Everyone-In-Danger. And this time, she is also a cheerleader.

Best Films of the Decade

It is what it is.

You’ve probably seen at least ten best of the decade lists by now and you think, Really? Another one?. Well we knew you’d say that so we thought we’d spice it up a bit. Instead of doing our usual “Best of …” format which usually includes ten to fifteen films ranked based on our individual lists, we are doing individual lists only. We felt that this way, we could present you with a more diverse list of films. We asked fourteen critics, academics and programmers to list their top twenty-films of the decade and write about their #1.But we still wondered if we made a big list, what would be our #1? What film was it that showed up on the list again and again? What film, to us, really captured the essence of this decade? The last ten years have been defined by loss, financial ruin, and anxiety about what world the next generation is going to inherit. But it’s also been a decade where seeds of revolution were planted, and the rise of social movements by people not afraid to fight the powers and systems that have become goliaths. Darkness rises, and light to meet it.

Much Ado About Cinema’s favourite film of the decade is Mad Max: Fury Road. Enjoy and happy new decade! Continue reading “Best Films of the Decade”

Coming Soon to Much Ado About Cinema

Happy hot girl summer everyone! After spending a rocky awards season (remember that only a few months ago?) and a even rockier school/work season, we’re finally back on our feet to create some new and wonderful content for our Patreon. As you may know, Much Ado About Cinema is volunteer run and no one at our team from Editor-in-Chief to Staff Writer earns any money. We rely heavily on the money we gain from our Patreon to run the website. Our hope is that in the future we’ll save enough money to pay our writers. So far we’ve been offering early access to our videos and podcasts on top of our Patreon exclusive podcast, “Chatter,” to our patrons but we’ve been a lacking on the writing side. Well not anymore! Starting in August we have three wonderful columns and a new podcast for our patrons. All these new additions will be available to different tiers on our Patreon in addition to early access and “Chatter.” Keep reading to find out more about the new additions to Much Ado About Cinema and click here to join our Patreon.
