We're kicking off the weekend with a new episode: New York Minute (2004) with thee #1 Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen fan, Natalie Burris of @halloweenqueens! 

The great Roger Ebert once said about this cult classique, “Not only should it have gone straight to video but should have gone straight THROUGH video and kept on going to the end of the universe and never looked back." All the love to Rog, but we RESPEKFULLY have to ...

“The best thing is you can shorten it and wear it again.” If you’ve ever had to wear a hideous bridesmaids dress, you might appreciate today’s episode on 27 Dresses, the 2008 wedding rom-com starring Katherine Heigl as a woman who is “always the bridesmaid, never the bride”— quite literally, 27 times.

Grab your Hefty bags, Fishies, 'cause it's time for us to show some RESPEK to one of the greatest music videos of all time: Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)," which came out 25 years ago this May. That garbage bag/Michelin man look that's burned in our minds was by June Ambrose (who also did our fave Belly).

We're joined by Melissa Walker, costume designer for Pen15 and Dollface Season 2!

We've got a wild card this week: Fresh, the new Hulu rom-com-turned-horror movie about a woman named Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones) who has a meat-cute, ahem, with a man named Steve (our fave hunk Sebastian Stan) in a grocery store but he doesn't turn out to be the seemingly nice dude she thought he was. You wouldn't think there'd be a lot of looks, but in fact, there are! Including some smart choices with hidden meanings,...
