    Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

    ★½

    I expected this to be so much worse (aka scarier / gross me out more) by the “body horror” comments in reviews and honestly like... the things that would normally gross me tf out were absolutely fine simply bc it looked so bad. Not spooky and generally disappointing, minus an extra half star just bc the “body horror” didn’t even bother me

    I am pretty overwhelmed with emotion when they talk about my tears ricochet because it hits so painfully close to home and I didn’t need to be so seen like that

    I really fucked up watching this on our flight to Dallas (April 22nd) instead of our flight leaving Dallas (April 25th) and I’ll live the rest of my life with that regret

    I remember watching this as a kid but I had been wanting to rewatch it bc I saw it so young and didn’t remember if it was problematic or not.  It’s definitely an over-simplification of race relations in the US at the time and the apartheid, but at the same time I don’t know how much you can do with a children’s movie. But I DEFINITELY don’t remember them casually dropping the n-word. 😳

    Who needs In the Mood for Love (2000) when you have The Last Song (2010)?? 😍

    The absolutely WORST PARTS were:
    -when they simply ~*could not*~ tell boss man he’s an idiot for not understanding what a latte or cappuccino is so they just SWAPPED THE NAMES??!! (renaming the kool-aid doesn’t mean you’re not drinking it 🙄)
    -when it said they were opening a school that abbreviated to SOLFL, pronounced “soulful” 🤮

    First, I am glad to get another show checked off of the “Things Donovon Must See” list I made back in like 2014 ??!!

    Second, this is still fantastic and I love it!  It has been a long time since I last saw it. My husband’s reluctance to watch such a long movie about a guy on an island is a big part of that lmao but it was a cozy rewatch after all this time!

    This was a love letter to my home. ❤️


    I also spent my childhood dreaming that I lived in a beautiful Victorian, so I can relate!
