Meet Internet Famous!

High school senior and internet sensation Madison Nakama seems to have it all: a happy family, good grades, and a massive online following for her pop-culture blog. But when her mother suddenly abandons the family, Madi finds herself struggling to keep up with all of her commitments.

Fandom to the rescue! As her online fans band together to help, an online/offline flirtation sparks with Laurent, a French exchange student. Their internet romance—played out in the comments section of her MadLibs blog—attracts the attention of an internet troll who threatens the separation of Madi’s real and online personas. With her carefully constructed life unraveling, Madi must uncover the hacker’s identity before he can do any more damage, or risk losing the people she loves the most… Laurent included.

Planning the Perfect Rewatch

By Danika Stone

This weekend I saw Wonder Woman. The movie theatre was packed, every seat full, as cheering fans came together to share their love of the 75 year old superhero. Wonder Woman (2017) was everything I had hoped it would be. There were big onscreen battles, epic Diana badassery, and a bittersweet origins story that left me desperate for more.

As with all the movies I fall madly in love with, I knew two things were destined to happen.

  1. Cosplay.

  2. Rewatch.

The cosplay will take place at Comic Con this July (though the sewing of that amazing costume has already begun!). And the Wonder Woman rewatch is planned for late summer / early fall when the film becomes available on pay-per-view. I can’t WAIT!

So, why not rewatch at a theatre? It has certainly crossed my mind as many of my friends have already seen Wonder Woman on the big screen two and three times. But for me, there’s a method to rewatching and it differs from the theatre experience.

Where my first viewing of a movie is generally on the big screen and is connected to SPECTACLE, my rewatches tend to be intimate events. The fundamental difference between the public screening and private rewatch is comfort. My second viewing of Wonder Woman will take place in my living room. My girlfriends will join me to celebrate Diana’s triumphs. It won’t be the same as the opening-night-madness, but it’ll have its own drama!

Here’s my plan for the perfect rewatch…

I always include movie treats to accent the film I’m watching. Movie theatre candies or retro treats are a great match for summer blockbusters like Avengers (2012) or Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), while culturally-inspired cuisine tends to accent foreign films such as Russian Ark (2002) or Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon (2000). If there’s a theme to the film – such as Chocolat (2000) – then I follow through with appropriate selections.

For Wonder Woman, I’m planning a Greek feast that the Amazons could be proud of! Spanikopita, tiropita, dolmades, pita bread, and hummus are on the menu. As for drinks, I’ll probably stick with water – but I’m sure some of my friends will be lifting a glass of beer in… *SPOILERS AHEAD* …Steve’s memory.

Next up… rewatch games. Though a theatre viewing takes place in a group setting, it’s mostly intended to be a solo experience. Nobody wants one person chatting partway through. (I certainly don’t!) A rewatch party is something else! For my Wonder Woman rewatch, I’ve created bingo cards. Each re-watcher gets to choose a character to follow, then plays along.

Whoever gets a BINGO first, wins a prize! (Even if that prize is just bragging rights or the last chicken wing.)

Lastly, I host a post-rewatch chat. This is my favorite part of any rewatch and sometimes it runs even longer than the film itself. In my book, Internet Famous, Madi blogs about her reactions, but in my experience, it’s equally fun to sit around with a group of my favorite people and talk about what we loved. Some of my favorite discussion prompts are:

  1. Who is your favorite character? Least favorite character? Why?

  2. If you could change one event in the movie, what would it be and why?

  3. OTP. NoTP. BroTP. (*WARNING: This one will incite arguments, so use sparingly!)

  4. How did the viewing of the movie change between your first (theatre) viewing and the rewatch? Was it better? Worse?

  5. Would you want to trade places with the main character for a day? A lifetime? Why or why not?

  6. Who was your favorite secondary character? Why?

  7. What details did you notice during the second viewing that you’d missed the first? Were there any characters who became more important? Less important?

  8. DISCUSS ALL THE POSSIBLE FANFIC.

  9. If the movie had a sequel, what would you want to occur?

  10. How would you rate the movie? Give it a score out of 5, and explain.

In the end, rewatching is a celebration! It brings your favorite people together to share your favorite film, and there are few things in life more guaranteed for success than that.

So how about you? What are YOUR rewatch traditions? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

I love the idea of a contemporary book that deals with internet trolls and the digital world in a humorous way. Definitely adding this to my TBR. And the cover is definitely attention grabbing... Love it!
