Crushes From My Childhood and Teen Years

15. Alyssa Milano (Fear and Charmed)

I've loved her since Fear, and I was also very excited when she was cast in Charmed

14. Kelly Packard (California Dreams and Baywatch)

She played Tiffani Smith in California Dreams - one of my fave shows as a young teen! She also played April Giminski on Baywatch!

13. Janet Jackson

I really loved her after the "Again" video, but definitely loved her after the "If" video

12. Larisa Oleynik (Alex Mack and 10 Things I Hate About You)

She started out as a preteen crush on Alex Mack, and then Babysitter's Club; she became a late teen crush when she was cast in "10 Things..."

11. Amy Jo Johnson (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers)

I think pretty much everyone was in love with the Pink Ranger in some type of way.

10. Mel B (Spice Girls)

I loved Mel B since the very beginning, and still am a fan to this day

9. Christina Ricci (Casper)

I was so in love with her when "Casper" was released

8. Robyn

Something about her was super hot to me as a teen; in fact, she is first girl crush I had that wasn't a secret

7. Danielle Fishel (Boy Meets World)

I think everyone loved Topanga

6. Alicia Silverstone (Clueless)

I liked her since I saw her in "Clueless" and liked her all over again when I saw "Blast From The Past"

5. Julianne Moore (The Fugitive)

I've loved her since I saw her in "The Fugitive" at 13 - enough said

4. T-Boz (TLC)

I first heard TLC when I was 12, and have loved her ever since - just something about her

3. Jessica Simpson

I am not a fan nowadays, but I used to totally be in love with her, and my teen years started that decade (and a half) long crush. The "I Think I'm In Love With You" video is still one of my favorites

2. Tiffani-Amber Thiessen (Saved By The Bell and Beverly Hills, 90210)

I was 9 when I first saw her on my TV; "Saved by the Bell" was my fave show, and I was instantly in Love with Kelly Kapowski. She was 15 that first season, but age was just a number to me. I was very excited when she went on to play Valerie Malone on 90210

1. Christina Aguilera

I have had a crush on her since 1992 when she was on MMC, We were the same age, she was super talented, and very cute. A few years later she returned for "Reflection" (Mulan), and then a little known song/video called "Genie in a Bottle". I've loved her for almost 30 years. She is still one of my crushes AND favorite singers.

My Ranking of ALL 5 SCREAM Movies (Spoiler Alert)!

 I was going to post this a week ago, but I decided to wait until Scream 5 was in theaters for 2 full weekends. I saw a ranking blog online, and didn't agree with the list, so I decided to do one of my own. 

5. Scream 3 - by far the worst movie in the series. I figured out who the killer was about halfway through and the story line itself was pretty weak.

4. Scream 5 - unfortunately, the newest addition to the series is also one of the worst. Again, I found out pretty early on who Ghostface was, so kinda ruined it after that. I also don't like that they killed one of the original characters.

3. Scream 4 - This one caught me by surprise. I thought it was surprisingly good for a reboot AND it went back to the root of the Scream movies. I mean, it followed 11 years after Scream 3 but was just as good as the first 2.

2. Scream - the movie that kicked off the series almost 26 years ago. I still love the fact that you never see the ending coming in the series - they keep you guessing until the very end. I love Matthew Lillard and Jamie Kennedy in this movie, and Neve Campbell is a total bad ass

1. Scream 2 - This is still my favorite movie in the series; the only thing I didn't like was that they killed off Randy. The reveal in the original movie was definitely memorable, but I like that they changed it up a little bit this time around. I still love Randy in this movie. I wish this movie hadn't been followed so closely by 3.

Movie Review: Scream (2022)


What can I say? I personally think that in 10 years they could've made a much better movie - especially for the big 25th anniversary. I would've stopped at Scream 4 (and Wes Craven). I figured out who the newest Ghostface was pretty early on, and it was kinda ruined after that. My generation grew up with this franchise, and I would rank this with Scream 3 (which had the same issue as far as Ghostface goes). I also thought Ghostface's reasoning was pretty weak this time around. One positive is that I do like the Sam character, and it has the usual humor that the franchise is known for. The new twist at the beginning is a nice touch too. Do I recommend it? Not really. Do I think fans of the franchise should watch it? Yes. Do I think it is a good movie by itself? Yes. My rating: 3 out of 5 stars

My 5 Fave Movie Musicals From The Past Decade (2022)

 ***I can only go by the ones I have seen***

Honorable Mention: Jem and the Holograms (2015) 

The movie isn't known to be a blockbuster, but I love the songs 

 5. The Greatest Showman (2017) 


Great story and great movie with a great cast 

 4. Annie (2014)


The original movie is a classic, but this movie was pretty good too 

 3. Aladdin (2019) 


Speaking of original movies being classics... I personally love this movie, and I love that they made it their own. I am glad they added a song for Naomi Scott, and she knocked it out of the park 

 2. Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)


This is honestly one of the best movies I've ever seen...enough said 

 1. Pitch Perfect (2012)


What can I say? It spawned 2 sequels and became a phenomenon. I like parts of each of the three movies, but feel the original is the best as a whole
