Theater Review: ‘Patti Issues’ / Movie Review: ‘Godzilla’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really fun day of entertainment. I got to hang out with a few different friends in a few different settings and I got to see both a one-man show and a movie that I have been anxious to see for months. My friend Ben Rimalower has been stunning audiences with his one-man show Patti Issues all over the country and at long last, I was able to see his show for myself last night. I was completely blown away by how good the show is. Wow. Late last night, I met up with friends for an early showing of the new Godzilla movie and … I was so disappointed with how the movie turned out that it pains me to be as brutally honest about the movie as I must be. I guess you have to take the good and take the bad cuz when you take them both you have the facts of life. More »

Movie Review: ‘Prisoners’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was supposed to be a quiet day for me … all I had on my agenda was to be in front of my TV to watch the series finale of Dexter LIVE. But, a few invites from a few friends and my day happily filled up. In the early afternoon, I met up with Tamar and her parents at UCLA for a reading of the play Reasons to be Pretty and then afterward, we met up with Ollie for a mid-afternoon brunch. I was able to watch the finale episode of Dexter before I met up with Courtney and Sebastian at Century City to see the new movie Prisoners. While Court and Seb loved Prisoners, I thought it was only OK. It’s a movie I deffo would recommend to others but it had a few flaws that I think could’ve made the movie so much better. More »
