Movie Review: ‘Big Hero 6′ / FKA Twigs FTW!

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun, pretty busy day for me. In the early afternoon, I met up with my friends Elena and Andreas in Hollywood so that we could see the new Disney Animation film Big Hero 6 at the El Capitan Theater. Afterward, I paid a visit to my superstar hairstylist and BFF Josh Rosebrook for a much-needed haircut and then I made my way downtown to see FKA Twigs live in concert. The movie was great, the company was even better … and the concert was truly an amazing experience. I had a really great Saturday, I have to say. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1′

The TV Guide

Last night, one day before the movie opens wide in theaters today, I attended an early showing of the much-anticipated sequel movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1. After MONTHS of counting down the days, I finally got the chance to see part 1 of the 2-part finale of the Hunger Games film franchise. As expected, Mockingjay – Part 1 acted as a placeholder for the second movie due out next year but I felt it was still a very entertaining movie. All of the really big action will take place in Part 2 but Part 1 definitely packed enough of an emotive punch to entertain fans of the Hunger Games series. More »

Movie Review: ‘Foxcatcher’

The TV Guide

Way back in May we got our first look at Steve Carell and Channing Tatum in the based-on-a-true-story movie Foxcatcher and last night, I finally got to see the movie for myself. To be completely honest, I really wasn’t all that informed on what the movie is all about … but after I saw the trailer, I knew it was a movie that I wanted to see. As I watched Foxcatcher last night, all I kept thinking was how unbelievable it is that this movie is based on true events. It’s an odd but very compelling film, once that I enjoyed very much.

Movie Review: ‘Interstellar’ In 4DX

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with a great group of friends for an evening showing of the new Christopher Nolan film Interstellar and while I wish I could say that I enjoyed the movie, well, I cannot. The night was really fun nonetheless because I got to see Nicole, Becca and Loy for the first time in forever and I got to spend more quality time with Darion and Omar but … very unfortunately, the movie was a huge fail on absolutely all fronts. Not even the fun 4DX experience was enough to make the movie good because even those effects were lacking. The night as fun but the movie was not. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Theory Of Everything’

The TV Guide

Back in August, when the first trailer for the Stephen Hawking biopic film The Theory of Everything was released, I cried. Last month, when the second trailer for the film was released, I cried. We even learned that Hawking himself cried when he saw the movie so I was fully expecting to be a bawling mess when I made my way to the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood, CA last night to see the movie for myself. I was quite shocked when I realized that the movie didn’t make me cry at all … but only because the movie is so beautifully told that I was far to focused on smiling throughout the movie that there was no need to shed a tear at all.

Movie Review: ‘The Book Of Life’

The TV Guide

Last night I hung out with my good friend Adriana for the first time in far too long and we enjoyed a very fun night together. After we hung out at her place for a bit, we grabbed a delish Mexican dinner and then made our way to the movies. We had planned on seeing The Box Trolls but ended up seeing an early showing of the new animated film The Book of Life. Folks, The Book of Life was sooooo good! If there is one movie that you need to see this Hallowe’en season, it’s The Book of Life. More »

Movie Review: ‘Whiplash’

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, I met up with my friends Emma and Josh for a movie date that we had postponed from Friday night and we saw one of the best films of the year. A few weeks ago, I saw the trailer for the new indie film Whiplash and was immediately intrigued by the surprisingly dark story of a teacher and his pupil. I had a feeling from the trailer that I would enjoy the movie … and I was right. Whiplash is a remarkably entertaining movie that is well acted and very well told. More »

Here’s What ‘Gone Girl’ Can Do For Women’s Sexuality In Film (Hella Spoilers)

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie.

Trent did an amazing job giving a not-so-spoilery review yesterday of Gone Girl. I just read it a minute ago, because I wanted to go into the theatre completely blind last night. Now, I’m going to SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL SPOIL the hell out of this movie right now, so please GO AWAY if you haven’t seen it yet! One thing I told my partna-in-babymaking when we left was that I was so sad that I would never have that experience again—my “first time” with Gone Girl, lol. But really, as much as I can’t wait to watch the movie again, I know it will never be the same. I was having all of these thoughts last night about Rosamund Pike as Amy Dunne, and sex, and sexuality, and sex! And then this morning I found this piece on Gone Girl as “the Latest Film to Showcase Female Pleasure,” and things started to make more sense for me. Female pleasure… is everything, lol.

Movie Review: ‘Gone Girl’

The TV Guide

Last night was a fun but long night for me. I met up with my friend Eileen for a double feature movie date at the Arclight theater in Hollywood for a showing of A Nightmare On Elm Street as well as a showing of Gone Girl. I’ve been anxious to see Gone Girl for months so I really wanted to see it at my earliest opportunity … but I also wanted the chance to see Nightmare on the big screen again. The Arclight screens classic horror films all throughout the month of October and Nightmare was the first movie on my list. Eileen had a free night so she was able to join me and a blast was had by us both. More »

Movie Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

The TV Guide

Last night I got to hang out with my friend Edward for the first time in forever and we had the best time ever. Edward has been busy flying all over the place so we haven’t been able to hang out much this summer but we finally managed to pick a night that worked for us both and we finally made it happen. Edward invited me to see a movie at the iPic theater in Westwood and I have to tell you, I had the best time at the movies ever. Not only was the movie great but the luxurious setting of the iPic theater was something I won’t soon forget … especially when I see movies in a regular movie theater from here on out. We saw the new ensemble film This Is Where I Leave You and I loved it entirely. More »
