  1. Hardly matters. I never get to see new releases since I stopped getting paid for it a loooong time ago. Besides, a little dust adds texture.

  2. I only watched one movie in a theatre in all of my life(Frozen 2,didn’t love it)but I personally feel that movies in theatres are certainly not as bright as hd tv screen.It can become a pain for the eyes to simultaneously watch a movie and peer at the costume details,without a rewind button to help you

  3. Funny you should bring this up. I heard a positive review of the latest Emma yesterday and found myself wondering about the costumes and your eventual review of THEM. I’m happy to wait for your snark.

    1. I went to see Emma earlier this week and really enjoyed the costumes.

      The dresses have proper sleeves and necklines and decorative detail and they get to wear more than just white and pale coloured dresses. I wasn’t keeping track so I could be wrong but I think all the ladies had their hair pinned up properly.

      I’m not as knowledgable about historian costumes as the frock flicks folks and I’ve no doubt there will be stuff to snark about but I actually thought to myself when leaving the theatre the frock flicks lot might approve of this movie. I don’t have any expectation of seeing an article about it anytime soon though as it’s only just out in cinemas like you I’m happy to wait for it

  4. Thank you for your informative post. I wouldn’t want you to change a fucking (see previous post on the f word), snarky thing.

    Unless it’s something like Wonder Woman, Black Panther or Portrait of a Lady on Fire, I prefer to watch the DVD or streaming service as movie theaters have gotten so NOISY lately.

    Again merci mille Beaucoup.

    Buon Carnivale!!

  5. Honestly, I would prefer waiting until we can have screencaps to accompany the review. I’m a visual person, and pure descriptions aren’t going to be the same. So take your time! There’s like a million costume dramas at any given time so it’s not like you’re going to run out of stuff to review lol!

  6. I only rarely pick a movie based on the costumes (although egregious or excellent ones can make a difference) and there’s no way that three working women can get to everything immediately. I am happy to wait (although I do really look forward to your LW review, because I was very disappointed in the costumes, despite loving the film).

    Also, I’ve been to a couple screeners this year where they’re just trying to create buzz so it’s within a week or so of the actual release and free—the company is called Gofobo and in NYC you have to register fast and arrive early, but it may be worth signing up for their emails. I went to 3 last year.

  7. Y’all just keep on doing your thing; you’re AMAZING and I love you just the way you are. ::changes sweater and sneaker, sings::

  8. Keep on your own schedule. Feeling pressured is the quickest way to lose creativity.

    I stopped going to movies years ago, (like 25-30 years)–Too noisy, rude patrons and 1/2 hour of ads put me off for good.

    I’m always behind on movies– I only watch movies if they are part of a subscription (like Netflix). I use your reviews to decide what to watch, so thanks.

  9. I will admit to being guilty of reading Kendra’s Laura Dern’s bangs post IN the theatre AS I was watching Little Women because Jo’s beachywaves made me that thirsty for snark content. (I was in a section alone with my sister and had my screen light all the way down – no one was disturbed)

  10. I get it! and I do not clamor for day zero reports. Even if sometimes I want to read and let out some steam. HA!

    I am glad that some producers DO think of you and DO send you screener material. I do not know why but it made me feel proud. And now I am way curious about which these are. HA!
