While watching Teen Wolf: The Movie, I found myself asking the question: Who is this for?
I was watching characters that I mostly knew, in a setting I knew all too well, fighting a demon that was instantly familiar, and yet I felt out of place. The plot holes were nonsense and the timeline was wildly inaccurate. So if this movie wasn’t for me, then who was it for?
Let’s talk about Bros, The new comedy written by and starring Billy Eichner and directed by longtime collaborator Nick Stoller. The film was also produced by Judd Apatow giving it a chance at distribution from a major studio – a first for a primarily LGBTQ film especially in the rom-com space. It’s a triumphant feat for Eichner and hopefully we’ll see more films get the chance.
I wanted so badly to be able to say “despite on-set messiness and the PR tour disaster (that was entertaining for all of the wrong reasons)Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling is a triumph! And it almost was!
I had the pleasure of interviewing Colton Haynes about his new memoir Miss Memory Lane. The full piece is at Pride.com and a link will appear below the excerpt.
I’ve watched Colton for a long time and always knew he had something deep and troubling inside of him. The book itself isn’t polished and it sort of defies genre, but it sticks with you and lingers in your mind. Colton has made himself vulnerable and open to critique, judgement and hopefully support.
The book is available now wherever books are sold, the audiobook is forthcoming. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed.
Movies like Disney’s Sneakerella allow me to rest in the idea that the kids really are alright. One one hand, fairytales are classic tales full of heroism, romance, action and usually a moral lesson at their heart. On the other hand, they are often heteronormative, misogynist, lack any diversity and some of the endings are more nightmarish than any fairytale should be. The effect of these films and stories can’t be denied. Millions of little girls want to be princesses and millions of little boys want to be valiant princes.
Hulu’s new original film Crush is a coming of age highschool rom-com with a queer twist. The film is directed by Sammi Cohen and was written by Kirsten King and Casey Rackham – all identify as queer women.
From Dreamworks and NBCUniversal, The Bad Guys is a fun, animated romp for kids of all ages. Starring Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Zazie Beetz and more, the film is kind of a Suicide Squad for kids! Let me explain.
Imagine you’re on your way to work and a drone tells you that you’re under arrest. While trying to figure out what’s happening, you are given the offer to plead guilty. At no point are you able to tell what exactly the crime is, or ask an actual human person for assistance!
This Friday, March 25th, the bride market will once again be open in London. Dozens of debutantes will vie for a husband thus establishing themselves in the Mayfair elite. Netflix’s Bridgerton has detailed the dalliances and dramas of Regency romance. From royal intrigue and meddling ma-mas to ever-watching eyes and salacious gossip, the folks at Mayfair have a lot more than marriage to think about.
How on earth are they to relieve any stress?
That stress often culminates into passionate, wild, and sometimes regrettable romps. From the promise-breaking to the pull-outs, we rank season 1 of Bridgerton’s sex scenes from worst to first!
In the age of extensive effects, massive budgets, and huge names, The Outfit director Graham Moore chose a quieter approach that is no less thrilling. The Outfit is a period gangster movie set in mid-’50s gangland Chicago. Filled with twists and turns, The Outfit will leave you guessing until the very end and keep you enthralled with capable performances from a plethora of talent…
