About Maggie Boccella

Maggie Boccella is certified Babe With the Power and lover of all things pop culture. She’s a News Editor at Collider, as well as a Rotten Tomatoes and The Cherry Picks approved critic, who specializes in feminist media and writing on out-of-this-world titles like Good Omens, Doctor Who, Top Gun: Maverick, and Willow

She loves exploring new places, including traveling for festivals like the Overlook Film Festival, as well as writing about how much she loves Frank Castle and David Bowie and how she’ll defend the Eighth Doctor to the ends of the multiverse. She’s down to clown with anything campy and ridiculous, but you can also find her reviewing thought-provoking projects like The Starling Girl, Annika, and Mister Organ. She’ll always blank when you ask her who the coolest person she’s interviewed is, but the list includes names like Val Kilmer, Freddie Prinze Jr., Jon Bernthal, Rick Riordan, Corey Feldman, Nicolas Cage, Cyndi Lauper, and David Tennant, the latter of which her Doctor Who-obsessed family will never get over. 

Her work has also appeared in places like Certified Forgotten and Blossom Mag, as well as on podcasts like Casterly Talk, and her own show, Does It Get the Pass?, where she dissects the history and common tropes of the romantic comedy with her co-host and fellow writer, Rebecca Radillo. 

When not waist-deep in pop culture, she dabbles in photography, fiction writing, and practicing her non-existent lightsaber skills.
