THE DISASTER ARTIST

There's sort of an ironic romanticism behind failure. No story would be interesting if there wasn't some sort of struggle involved. Why is failure so fascinating? In the past week, the Museum of Failure opened in Los Angeles. It's an epic display of unsuccessful innovations from major companies such as Apple, Google, and Kodak among…

LADY BIRD

It seemed pretty coincidental that I finally watched Frances Ha just a few days before I went to see today's film Lady Bird- Greta Gerwig's solo directorial debut. Both stories are inspired by Greta's real life, but Lady Bird serves as a more semi-autobiographical film. The film was highly anticipated, with strong debuts at Telluride and Toronto-…

Film Discovery: FRANCES HA (2012)

On a slow night, I found myself browsing for a movie to watch. I have such a short attention span, that I have barely made it through any of the long list of movies in my streaming queue. After watching Noah Baumbach's Greenberg some time ago, I've had Frances Ha on my to-watch list for…

Film Campaigns to Watch: How the Moon Fell From the Sky

A whimsical, hopeful film centered around a queer romance... I'm so excited for my second film campaign! My latest campaign is How the Moon Fell From the Sky and No One Noticed. It is currently raising funds for post-production. There are still nine days until the close of the campaign, and every bit counts to helping…

BOJACK HORSEMAN

Who would've thought that a show about a horse would be one of television's most human shows? Bojack Horseman is one of my favorite series of all time. It's well written, well acted, and the artistry and attention to detail in this show is remarkable. Bojack Horseman is truly one of today's most progressive TV…

Film Campaigns To Watch: THE ARTIST AND THE PERVERT

The Artist and the Pervet

LOOK OUT FOR THE ARTIST AND THE PERVERT IN 2018! Recently, I decided to take upon a monthly film campaign challenge, and had searched multiple crowdfunding websites to find something that would pique my interest. There are a lot of campaigns that were pretty interesting, but when I stumbled across The Artist and the Pervert, I…

THE LITTLE HOURS

Dave Franco and Aubrey Plaza in The Little Hours

Another movie post! Hurray! I haven't done a full movie post in a while- which are my favorite things to do! I had seen The Little Hours back at Sundance, but never really wrote about it. Luckily, I have had plenty of time to formulate thoughts about this film. The Little Hours is loosely based on…

THE FIFTH ELEMENT: 20th Anniversary

The Fifth Element

Back in 1997, Luc Besson's The Fifth Element premiered at the glitzy Cannes Film Festival in France. It's grand debut was accompanied by a fashion show by Jean Paul Gaultier (The film's costume designer), fireworks, and a ballet. Shortly afterward, the film was released worldwide. The film was a critical and financial success, grossing over $260…

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE: A Letter to the Black Community’s Outsiders

Dear White People

Back in 2014, I saw the original movie for Dear White People. I really loved the film and its message to the Black community and everyone else in general. When I saw there was going to be a TV show,  I was really excited. I have been waiting for this series for well over a…

THE FRANCO’S, THE ROOM, & BIG DREAMS

Dave Franco and James Franco in The Disaster Artist

Shame on me, but I was introduced to the bizarre world of The Room by the Franco brothers. Last night was the work-in-progress premiere of The Disaster Artist at SXSW. I decided to watch The Room for the first time in celebration and so that I wouldn't be an uninitiated swine when the film gets a…
