Sicario: Emily Blunt Enters Heart of Darkness

War is being waged right in front of us, and Sicario explores the battle within Mexico and the American border towns while posing some interesting questions about morality. A “sicario” is a Mexican slang term meaning “hit man.” The word is symbolic of the carnage wrought by the battle over narcotics. Emily Blunt stars as…

BLACK MASS (2015)

BLACK MASS: Cumberbatch Is Depp’s Brother?

What ludicrousness is this? Johnny Depp is Benedict Cumberbatch’s brother? That’s really believable. And I suppose Pegasus unicorns will start flying out of my sphincter. Black Mass, the Johnny Depp-driven tale of Boston kingpin Whitey Bulger, asks us to believe that Johnny Depp’s sibling is Benedict Cumberbatch. Je ne comprend pas. The movie starts off with…

Ricki and the Flash

Ricki and the Flash

Meryl Streep leads an artist’s life as the titular character in Ricki and the Flash. Perpetually stuck in the ’80s, I’m going to agree with a blogger who wrote that Meryl Streep appears to be dressing in “Melissa Etheridge Drag” (I think someone said that on Dlisted). I totally agree, because it looks like Meryl Streep…

Amy Winehouse

“Amy” – A Beautiful Soul and an Amazing Talent

Watching the documentary Amy reminded me how much time has passed since Amy Winehouse left us. Remember Amy Winehouse? For me she symbolized this golden moment in celebrity gossip culture where there was always something funny happening in the tabloids. In fact, the first time I heard her song “Rehab” was when it was posted on Perez…

Back in Business – SAN FRANCISCO DADDY

Bye Bye, Chelsea

Though I hope she’s moving to Netflix, Chelsea is ending her show! I went to see her live in LA when Ross was on the round table, took my picture with Chuy and she even sent me this photo when I gave her a copy of my book (see pics below)! Good luck, Chelsea (and…

X-MEN: Richard Nixon Looks Really WEIRD

There’s a moment when Magneto circa 1974 flies an entire baseball stadium (presumably the Baltimore Orioles, I don’t think Washington DC had a team at that time), and smashes it around the White House which is hosting a bunch of reporters and President Richard Nixon. The actor looks only slightly like the historical Nixon; in…

Neighbors: Hysterical, Bro

I think Neighbors will be remembered as the high point of Seth Rogen’s career – I was scared to watch this, since I was afraid all the funny parts were in the trailer. I was pleasantly surprised to be laughing out loud, especially at some of the throw away one-liners by Sydney-born actress Rose Byrne…
