Two Fiery Shows About Women and our BFFs

We haven’t had a profound shortage of female bonding orientated programming as of late. Girls on HBO, for example, is a gritty, realistic show about the real life jealousies and issues that develop between friends as they navigate the waters of young adulthood. But as much as I love it, it’s about women much younger than myself, and as much as I try to relate to Hannah, Marnie, Jess and Shoshanna, I realize that that the similarity factor can only go so far. ...more

An "American Blogger" Review

I said I wasn't going to purchase the film "American Blogger", but then it was released early, and the minute it was available I bought it. The fact that it was only $9.99 was a big factor, to be honest. I didn't want my criticism and speculation to continue unfounded because of a measly $10. So, here's my take... ...more

My Bollywood Addiction

My friends, I have a problem. I am an addict. You see....I love Bollywood.I know what you're thinking, 'Come on it can't be THAT bad, it's just some silly movies with weird, out-of-nowhere dance numbers that are WAY too long'.But no, no, it's much worse than that.  My car has a CD that is always in circulation that is exclusively Bollywood music. As a matter of fact, I'm listening to the soundtrack to Om Shanti Om as I type this very sentence (Dhoom Taana <3)....more

Superhero Fatigue

I have been known to geek out and watch superhero movies, although I tend to be more interested in sci-fi and fantasy than famous comic book characters. But I have to admit that as cute as Chris Hemsworth is as Thor (and even cuter Tom Hiddleston as Loki) I am experiencing some serious superhero fatigue. I can't tell the difference between Iron Man 1, 2, or 3 and I simply don't care. I'm willing to bet that Robert Downey Jr. would find himself similarly challenged....more
