For the uninitiated, RuPaul’s Drag Race is America’s Next Top Model for drag queens, but with more dancing, singing, acting and shade-throwing… The show’s on primetime VH1 now, but RuPaul’s said it, and I will say it. Drag will never be mainstream, honey... I’m crying, and so are the qu...

Being a huge fan of science fiction movies and of space, I had really high hopes for Life, but the movie really failed to be memorable. The movie, after all, stars two of the hottest actors right now: Jake Gyllenhaal and Ryan Reynolds. Plus, with how good the space movies have been the past few year...

The Power Rangers were created in the ‘90s in a television show called The Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. 24 years later, the Power Rangers have been rebooted in movie form and I can say that I loved it. Mighty Morphin' was a gigantic part of my childhood and it was absolutely amazing to see one of...

Do not walk into the Patti Baker theatre expecting to see the film Grease on a stage. RHS Theatre Co’s rendition brings something new and refreshing to the stage. Well, not “new” but new to most who aren’t familiar with any version of Grease beyond the movie. Don’t be disappointed that ...

Although Director Josh Trank has a bad reputation for his work on the newest Fantastic Four movie, a lot of people seem to look over the fact that Trank made an incredible indie teen superhero movie that landed him the job for the reboot. Chronicle (2012) brings a new and exciting take on the super...

All controversy aside, there is no dispute over whether Beauty and the Beast is a phenomenal film or not. With all the pressure on the studio and director Bill Condon’s shoulders to bring to life the only animated film to be nominated for best picture at the academy, they prevailed. The most m...

The essence of New York hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan’s debut record Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) is something that’s fleeting but beautiful, a unique sound, attitude and atmosphere that many artists have tried and failed to replicate, even the Clan themselves. The album’s ripples can be felt across...

Since Beauty and the Beast came out to a smashing debut last weekend, I figure I’d shed some light on the dashing fellow who played the beast, Dan Stevens. Although he doesn’t have the biggest filmography I figured I’d review the movie that put him on the map. The Guest (2014) is a thriller set...
