I don’t know if this is a GOOD movie, but it is an absolutely heroic rewrite of the source material and I want a novelization of it.
“Wait, wasn’t this week supposed to be Good Manners?”
Weeeeeeell, we ran into a little trouble. Mostly in that Good Manners isn’t about LADY werewolves.
Instead, we decided to take a look at Blood & Chocolate, a movie based on a popular proto-YA novel in that it shares some character names. It might not be a GOOD movie, but it managed to surprise us with its rejection of toxic masculinity in a genre known for dickweed alpha males.
