Retro Reviews 2 — Part-Time Characters


The Part-Time Characters had an assignment this week- to watch classic movies they have had on their lists for too long. That’s right! We are back with another episode of Retro Reviews, where Bridget discusses Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sam watches The Goonies, Maria gives Goodfellas a shot and Adonis does pretty much whatever he wants.

For this week’s episode of Part-Time Characters, the friends get together to discuss their favorite movies based on books. With so many book adaptations, it was hard to whittle down the list. Just ask Sam.

However, we managed to get it done and bring you a diverse list- from young adult books, to horror adaptations and romantic historical dramas (cue Bridget’s extended sigh).

Guess the Disney Song! – Now Conspiring


We have a full house on this week’s episode. RAK (aka Khan) and Jenny Pan join the podcast along with Maria’s best friend, Evie.

Review: ‘Alice Through the Looking Glass’ Is Weird For All the Wrong Reasons

When I saw the first live-action film, Alice in Wonderland, I found the whole thing sort of…OK. It wasn’t very good or anything, but the 3D at the time was so stunning, and the effects so magical, it was easy to overlook how off-putting it was to see Alice being transposed

Snarcasm: Harry Potter Has Sucked This Entire Time

Snark + Sarcasm = what you’re about to read. I wasn’t allowed to read the Harry Potter books when I was a child. And as a book-obsessed fourth grader who watched his friends read Prisoner of Azkaban during recess instead of playing four square  with him, this was one of the more sinister things my parents
