Let’s be honest. The biggest draw of Jill Soloway‘s (Six Feet Under, United States of Tara) new Amazon original series, Transparent is the fact that we get to see Jeffrey Tambor in women’s clothing. Not because it’s a joke, but because it is unexpected and unusual from a man we are so used to seeing as a comically absent father in Arrested Development. Tambor in a flowy kaftan is great and all,…

A More Honest Look at the New ‘Mockingjay’ Rebel Warriors Posters

A More Honest Look at the New ‘Mockingjay’ Rebel Warriors Posters

New posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I were unveiled yesterday and they give us some rebellion realness. The posters give supporting characters a moment to shine (notice there isn’t a Katniss poster…yet) as the “Rebel Warriors.” They look cool, but I edited them with new and improved character names.

There is one movie this summer where you should avoid any and all spoilers. It’s not a big-time CGI blockbuster or another disappointing M. Night Shyamalan vehicle. It’s an intimate romantic art house comedy called The One I Love.

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Movie Review’

It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since Robert Rodriguez co-directed the movie adaptation of the graphic novel Sin City with the creator of the noir black and white opus, Frank Miller. The interpretation was a literal comic frame by comic frame translation of Miller’s pages, giving us delicious monochromatic eye candy with pops of colors that splattered across with ultraviolence and…
