We aim to bring something unique to rating literature, film, television and theater. Not only do we review the quality of the content, but we also review the romance (in a light-hearted, let’s not take everything so seriously kind of way) when relevant to the story. For the overall ratings, we use vintage corsets and for romance we use vintage hearts!
For additional fun, we also give our “expert” opinion on what type of adaptation we recommend (Movie, Miniseries, or TV Show). Which brings us to the actual ratings…

We only do adaptation recommendations for books. At the end of the review, we’ll give our “expert” opinion on whether we think the book would best be turned into a Film, a Series of Films, a Mini-Series or a TV Show and why.
