Movie Review: ‘Maleficent’

SO … last night, I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of Maleficent here in LA and I have to tell you right off the bat that I loved the movie entirely. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of this movie ever since we first heard that Angelina Jolie would be starring as the titular character way back in 2010. In June of 2012, we got our first look at Angelina in costume as Maleficent on the set of the film and since then, we’ve gotten pretty regular updates on the film’s progress. The movie opens in theaters here in the US tomorrow and I am very happy to tell you exactly why I loved this movie and why I think you will love it as well. More »

Happy Birthday, Darion

Today is a special day because it is the day that the world celebrates the birth of my BFF Darion! Because I love him enough to know better, I shant reveal which birthday Darion is celebrating today but I will confirm that he will likely be celebrating his 21st birthday again today. I won’t be able to see Darion until tomorrow because he’s got other plans for tonight (wink wink) so I’ll have to take this opportunity today to send him all of my Birthday Lurve! I hope you will join me in wish D a very Happy Birthday today. More »

My New Home

So … I ended up spending another evening/night at Disneyland yesterday after I was invited to hang with my friend Ryh-Ming and her friend Dolly … because clearly I have a problem. It’s true that I like to go to Disney a few times a year but this year, well, I seem to be spending a lot more time at the Happiest Place on Earth than ever. Counting the 24 day/night at Disney on Friday/Saturday, I managed to spend time in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday … and honestly, I had a great time on each visit.

Two Much Fun

My plan was to spend my Sunday relaxing on the couch, doing a bunch of nothing by day so that I could rest up before going to a Morrissey danceparty last night. I ended up getting cajoled into going back to Disneyland for the second time in 3 days and, yes, I had a blast. I randomly ran into an old friend from NYC who I hadn’t seen in years and we ended up hanging out all afternoon, night. Even tho I was totally wiped out, I still made my way to the Echoplex to dance the rest of the night away to music by Morrissey and The Smiths. Fun! More »

Three’s Company

I spent a fairly quiet night with my homettes Tamar and Ollie last night that was comprised of food, drink and great conversation. Tamar and I had planned on going to the movies but dinner with Ollie proved to be too much fun for us to make our movie date. We all met up at Tamar’s and then made our way to Malo for dinner. Our conversation covered a wide range of topics of varying import. Basically, we spent our night yakking away over any and everything and we ended up having the best night ever. More »

I Rocked My Disney Side

Last night, Disneyland here in SoCal and Walt Disney World in Florida held their annual 24-hour event at their theme parks (Disneyland, Disney’s California Adventure and the Magic Kingdom) and I was able to hang out all night/all morning at both Disneyland and California Adventure. I was joined by my dear friend Genevieve and her friend Michelle and an AMAZING time was had by all. More »

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: Days Of Future Past’

Last night I met up with my DEAR Adriana for a dinner and movie date and, as usual, we had the best time ever. The Arclight in Hollywood hosted early showings of X-Men: Days of Future past (which opened officially today) and we nabbed tickets for the 10pm showing together. We grabbed dinner nearby and then settled in for a night of mutant fun. I am VERY VERY VERY happy to say that I loved Days of Future Past very much. The movie managed to honor the previous X-Men films while paving the way for a great new future for the X-Men film franchise. I can’t really think of a thing that I didn’t like about the movie so, yeah, my review is totally a rave. More »

Rosebrook At The Rosewood

Last night I had plans to see an early screening of upcoming HBO film The Normal Heart at an event at LACMA but, sadly, the event was cancelled at the last minute. I have to say that I was really looking forward to seeing the movie but I guess I’ll have to wait until The Normal Heart premieres on HBO this Sunday night to see it with everyone else. While I was bummed that the screening was cancelled, my night got considerably better when I met up with my good friend Josh Rosebook for drinks at the Rosewood Tavern. I get to see Josh about once a month when he cuts my hair but we decided last week that we HAD to get together for a proper hang this week. More »

Movie Review: ‘Locke’

Last night I met up with my friend Caleb for a dinner/movie hang in Hollywood where we grabbed burgers and beers at Stout and then caught the new Tom Hardy film Locke at the Arclight. We’ve both been hearing really good things about Locke so we were both really excited to see the movie. The first thing you should be aware of is that Locke takes place entirely inside of a car with only Tom Hardy on screen. Knowing that information before seeing the movie will do much to determine if you like the movie or not. Had I not known what the premise of the movie is, I can see how I may have not enjoyed the film. But, because I knew going in that the movie is basically a one-man show, I was really looking forward to Hardy‘s performance. I am very happy to relay that I loved Locke entirely. More »

For Only The Second Time Ever

After a few days of running around all over the place, I decided to stay in and make my Monday night a quiet one. Because I had only seen the movie once when it opened in theaters (and many of my friends — especially the ones with children — have seen the movie 10 times or more), I decided to watch Frozen again for only the second time ever. I remember liking the movie but there were things that I had forgotten about the movie that made me want to watch it all over again. I’m glad that I did because I really enjoyed the movie much more this second time around. More »
