    Philadelphia

    ★★★½

    I feel like belting out "Philadelphia Freedom" would reasonably be thematically fitting, but not as tonally fitting as one of Bruce Springsteen's heartland soft rock ballads. Alas, it didn't just take jaunty pop rockstars like Elton John to bring gay culture to the mainstream, but also catastrophically bleak tragedies about AIDS... starring everyone's favorite straight, adorably bombastic comedian. Perhaps "The Last Song" really helped viewers accept Tom Hanks in the role of Andrew Beckett, a senior associate at an elite…

    The Final Girls

    ★★★½

    And here I thought Abigail Breslin was the "final girl", but apparently, there are a bunch of other ladies who are finite in something. Leave it to me to know about and remember "Final Girl" enough to think about it first thing when I see this film (Alexander Ludwig seriously stars in both movies, so I find it impossible to not), while everyone else is possibly thinking about "American Horror Story" when they see Taissa Farmiga. It's hard to not…
