"Stories hurt, stories heal." - Stella Nicholls

If you are a Gen Xer and don't remember desperately trying to check out the Scary Stories books from the library, are you even ok??? Just kidding. Sort of. Even if the books weren't your thing, you can appreciate the shock and awe of the illustrations done by Stephen Gammell. Andrea and Melissa definitely have a long-standing relationship with the books, but had n...

"Could you act human? Okay, I have neighbors." - Isabella Swan

Picture it - a dark theater in 2008, full of ladies ready to swoon and a few drag-along audience members on an obligatory date night. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson proceed to bring to life the Young Adult novel with the famous apple on the cover. The fact that the vampires never sleep and sparkle in the sunlight may have had you rolling your eyes but n...

"Whoa, wait, you're having a party on a Wednesday? On a school night?" - Bianca Piper

Designated Ugly Fat Friend......a DUFF, if you will. This teen movie took the wingman concept and spun a new definition to help label the insecurity monster we all have had to face in one way or another. While Mae Whitman is hardly ugly or fat, she has the sarcasm delivery the role of Bianca Piper needs. This movie came out in 20...

Scream 1996 was our 3rd episode EVER!!! If you haven't heard it, or just want to re-live the fun we are re-releasing it while we work on a new SPOOOOOKY HALLOWEEN episode for you! And remember.... "Movies don't create psychos. Movies make psychos more creative!"

"I didn't ask for this role, but I'll play it. Now go do your best. Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid. Goethe said that. It's not too late for you to become a person of substance, Russell. Please get my son home safely. You know, I'm glad we spoke." - Elaine Miller

Anybody else miss concerts? Summer seems to bring the itch for live music, good friends, and warm air touching your skin. We&#...

"Witches in days gone by were roasted just like my Vienna sausage." - Heather Donahue

If we told you for every $1 you invest in a movie, you will make $10, 931 - would you support that project? Hell, yes!! Unfortunately, Andrea and Melissa do not have an opportunity like that to offer. Back in 1999, the creators of The Blair Witch Project didn't have an offer like that to make either. But as time would tell, the...

"I lost my virginity in what I thought was a park but... it turned out to be a graveyard, and now the ghost spirits live inside my eggs waiting to be reborn." Gigi

Cramming all the fun you should have had in high school into one night might be possible. In Olivia Wilde's Booksmart, Amy and Molly dare to make it happen. Finding out that your classmates are delightfully weird, genuinely clever, sometimes lonely, ...

"You could park a car in the shadow of his ass." - Thelma

Sometimes a story ends up being EPIC. We throw that word around a lot, now. Make no mistake about it, 1991's Thelma & Louise is truly an epic story. Andrea and Melissa were only 12 years old when Ridley Scott directed this movie. It was no surprise that this story was above their heads, at the time. It was truly exciting to revisit this movie wit...

"A toast... to us, to our last summer of immature, adolescent decadence." - Barry Cox

Once upon a time, there was a golden age of teen horror movies. That time was the late 1990s. Sadly, they weren't all as brilliant as Kevin Williamson's Scream. Sometimes, we see success and say...."so, what else have you got?" Mr. Williamson had a script that was once rejected. Based on a teen novel by Lois Dunc...

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it." - Ferris Bueller

Nothing says spring like a long-awaited day of perfect weather in Chicago. We could all use a day of leisure (taking a note from the king himself, Mr. Bueller) after this wild ride that has been 2020-21. Andrea and Melissa recorded this bonus episode pre-Covid19 and we would love to go back in time a...

"My advice is to sleep with as many people as possible." - Kathryn Merteuil

The teen movie that came with SO MUCH SCANDALOUS HYPE. It was the kiss we were all talking about in 1999. Sarah Michelle Gellar and Selma Blair made spittle cool. Cruel Intentions was the modern-day Dangerous Liaisons we didn't know we needed. Drenched in opulence, hormones, and tons of style, this film took the 90s teen movie wave to ...

"But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you. Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all." - Kat Stratford

Most of us had to study some Shakespeare in school. In 1999, it was cool to know a few of William's stories. The Taming of the Shrew is not one that Andrea and Melissa have ever had the chance to read, but it's all good because 10 Things I Hate About You came along and gave us the gist!...

Andrea and Melissa had so much fun recording this episode and the recurring joke of their fictional band "Ominous Wind" has been referenced in so many episodes! Enjoy this re-release of Final Destination while we watch more movies for upcoming episodes!

"How do we know that just by sitting here - by, by sipping this coffee, or breathing the air, or even crossing the intersection - that we haven't even started in mot...

"Throwing a party it's like... it's like an invitation for abuse. It's like the last desperate act of someone who hasn't had a lasting relationship since Junior High." - Monica

Sooooooooooooo.........New Year's Eve was very different this year. Covid19 has parties squashed, but that is no reason you couldn't find a way to ring in 2021 with some fun! Andrea and Melissa joined this virtual N...

"I don't care whether you like me or not!" - Meredith Morton

Dysfunctional families. We've all got experience with them. Holidays are usually the best catalyst to amplify those dysfunctions. Add a new person/guest into the mix, and you have a recipe for lots of antics to ensue. For this episode, Melissa introduced Andrea to The Family Stone from 2005. There are some pretty big name actors in this c...

We are so happy that we got to record this episode with our good friends at the Inside you with Bill and the Raptor podcast. This year has be absolutely BANANAS, but the best thing to come out of it is our connection with Bill and Raptor. After this, we will be back to watching movies. For this episode, enjoy a great conversation among friends. Stay safe and healthy and Happy Holidays!

"It was real, wasn't it? You and me. Such a long time ago, we were just a couple of kids. But we really loved each other, didn't we?" - Allie Hamilton

One of us saw this movie, one of us didn't. We both watched The Notebook for this episode and we have THING TO SAY. Join Andrea and Melissa as they try to get into Nicholas Sparks' summer romance that was all the rage in 2004. Did their hearts flutter ...

"Sounds razor." - Rachel Wagner

Sorry, Mr. Rosenberg, STOP torturing poor Katie Holmes with this nonsense. "Razor" never took as new teen slang and didn't sound nearly as clever as it may have looked on paper. Back in 1998, the film Disturbing Behavior brought Stepford Wives to high school? Yep. You remember. The grunge kids versus the preppies meets mind-altering brain treatments by...

If you didn't just read the end of this quote in James Van Der Beek's southern accent circa 1999, we don't know how to help you. For this episode, Andrea and Melissa ruminate on high school football and its highs and lows through the vehicle of VARSITY BLUES...
