This Week In Movies: ‘The Circle,’ ‘How To Be A Latin Lover,’ ‘Buster’s Mal Heart’

04.24.2017 | By |

How To Be A Latin Lover is how we begin the week’s film releases. For the love of a god, any god, I hope this comedy doesn’t regress Latino culture 30 years. To be frank, I can’t bring myself to see it. You guys let me know how it is. In other releases, Tom Hanks and Emma Watson engage us in a black mirror story about technology and social media and humanity in The Circle and Rami Malek leaves his Mr. Robot persona to give us Buster’s Mal Heart, a quirky thriller that is sure to make you see Malek with different eyes. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more! Read More

Excellent Trailer of Salma Hayek’s ‘Beatriz at Dinner’

04.12.2017 | By |

It is a rarity to see films with a central Hispanic lead, specially with one who possesses a strong accent such as Salma Hayek. But somehow, America forgives her (and a select few) and they allow themselves to be treated to the screenwriter’s imagination and the director’s vision of a story. These characteristics and more are in full display in Beatriz at Dinner. Puerto Rican director Miguel Arteta, who made a favorite film of mine, Youth In Revolt, starring Michael Cera, casts Salma Hayek in what will arguably be known as her best performance since her Oscar nomination in 2002’s Frida. This is the type of films Latinos should aspire to be a part of – dark comedies with a melding of Caucasians and Latino sensibilities; those which break from the storytelling of border-crossing or drug cartels. Beatriz at Dinner seems to offer a new paradigm for Latino actors, one which they should be watching with a discerning eye.

Transformers: The Last Knight: The Official Trailer Is Here!

04.12.2017 | By |

I still don’t think Mark Wahlberg fits the Transformers franchise, but now that Michael Bay is stepping down after this film, it’ll be interesting to see how the dynamics (and cast) probably change under “new management”. Nice to know Big Little Lies Latino actor Santiago Cabrera is in the film. Give the trailer a look and let us know what you think about it in the comments section below. Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘John Coltrane,’ ‘Norman,’ ‘The Lost City Of Z’

04.11.2017 | By |

We’re in the middle of April, spring has sprung and so are good quality movies… well at least the independent fare. The best films to see this week are of the indie kind such as two documentaries, Chasing Trane: The John Coltrane Documentary and Jeremiah Tower: The Last Magnificent which promise great insights into their respective crafts – jazz and the culinary arts. Also, Richard Gere returns to the big screen offering some more non-Richard Gere films with Norman. He’s been experimenting with his character selections for some time now and it’s hit and miss, but you can’t fault him for trying. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more! Read More

TODAY SHOW: I Discuss Ricky Martin, Janet Jackson, Bradley Cooper, Chrissy Teigen, Olivia Munn

04.10.2017 | By |

It’s #FUNDAYMONDAY at the TODAY show this morning. Had a chance to discuss some couples gossip with Kathie Lee and Jenna Bush (Hoda is out on maternity leave), but my favorite topic was the Ricky Martin news about him being cast in FX’s upcoming miniseries “Versace: American Crime Story” premiering 2018. It’s a Latin-affair since he’s joining Edgar Ramirez and Penelope Cruz in the show. Take a look above at the video and if you have a chance, listen to my “Highy Relevant” podcast when you can!
