Netflix Reveals First ‘Narcos: Mexico’ Teaser Starring Diego Luna and Michael Peña

Let’s not kid ourselves. Latinos are invisible in movies, but they do have some juice on TV. Narcos: Mexico is an example when Latino star power (Latino American and US Latino) teams up together with a relevant story that has proven to attract White, Black and even Asian audiences. Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Operation Finale,’ ‘Kin,’ ‘Blood Fest’

‘This Week In Movies’ is a weekly article that catches you up on all the new film releases coming out every week. This week we have the lowest amount of releases we’ve seen in years – only five. The end of August is usually considered the worst week for movies in a calendar year. Nevertheless, all five films offer either star power (Oscar Isaac who is the new Batman, an interesting premise, or a perfect excuse to zone out and laugh). Read on! Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Christopher Robin,’ ‘The Spy Who Dumped Me,’ ‘Never Going Back’

This is a very good ‘This Week In Movies’. There’s a little bit for everyone from some family fair, comedy, documentaries and indie with some fresh faces and rising stars. First up is Disney’s Christopher Robin, essentially a live-action Winnie The Pooh movie. This one should choke on you up.  If you’re into politics, author Dinesh D’Souza compares Abraham Lincoln’s presidency to Trump’s in Death of a Nation, and indie film Never Goin’ Back stars Argentine actress Camila Morrone who is a star in the making harkening  back to Italy’s Sofia Loren.  See what else is here that you might like to see and GO SEE IT! And remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American and Latino pop culture.

‘Chabuco:’ A Colombian Innovating Vallenato Music with Latin Jazz

Colombia is a country known for its salsa and vallenato. Vallenato is the folkloric, poetic music of its coast which its singer/songwriter Jose Dario Martinez Acosta, aka Chabuco, has been listening to since he was a child due to his father’s influence, the legendary guitarist Hugues Martinez. With his fourth solo album titled Encuentro, he mixes the sounds of vallenato from the Caribbean coast of Colombia, with jazz and bossa nova, resulting in a beautiful and unique sound of Latin Jazz.

This Week In Movies: ‘Equalizer 2,’ ‘Mamma Mia 2,’ ‘Blindspotting’

‘This Week In Movies’ we take a look at the new movie of one of America’s greatest actors – Denzel Washington. Though his film Equalizer 2 is not a prestige film, if its anything like the original, it should be fun. Another great American actor releasing a film is Meryl Streep. Her Mamma Mia sequel should target women and those looking for romantic stories to reinforce their belief in everlasting love. Finally, former Broadway Hamilton actor Daveed Diggs makes an Oakland film that should be talked about after you leave the  theater. Enjoy the trailers and remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American pop culture. Read More

This Week In Movies: ‘Skyscraper,’ ‘Shock and Awe,’ ‘Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti’

‘This Week In Movies’ is back! As July turns to its second week, it has seen the tally of a record-breaking year in films, thanks to the superhero and action-genre (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Jurassic World 2). But  though billion dollar tentpoles are not releasing this week, we do have an actioner with a family sensibility – Skyscraper – starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. His choices for films are diverging from guns, suplexes and corny jokes to family, social  issues and more human stories. There’s also Shock and Awe, which has all the bells and whistles from a prestige journalism film that could make it to the Oscars, but not there’s not much hype behind it. Then there’s Dark Money, a documentary about where political ads and those dark sources who fund it intersect that could fit into a doubel bill with the previous aforementioned. And if you like art, then Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti is a viewing necessity. It stars European star Vincent Cassell playing the eponymous painter. Enjoy the trailers and remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of movies and interviews with filmmakers and other notable figures of American pop culture.

Podcast: 2018 World Cup Preview, Telemundo’s Viviana Vila Makes History

We’re days away from the biggest soccer event in the world, the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and we’re devoting the whole show to the World Cup. We’ll be speaking in Spanish to Argentine sports journalist Viviana Vila (2:46), who this year will become the first Latina to provide commentary for a men’s World Cup on Telemundo. I’ll discuss with her if her Argentine accent will be a problem for Mexican soccer fans, the struggles she had to endure to sit at the table of a male-dominated anchor team, and if we’ll ever see the first female play by play announcer anytime soon.

PODCAST: Eugenio Derbez on Accents, Clicks and Culture in Hollywood, “Avengers: Infinity War” Has 3 Problems

Comedian Eugenio Derbez stops by the show to discuss his new movie “Overboard,” but we really talk about his struggles of becoming a star in an industry that has not fully embraced his culture, his accent nor his stories. We unspool why he’s making English-language movies now after a successful career in Spanish, how he overcame the sellout stigma from Mexican peers and why he believes Hollywood is afraid of creating Latino movie stars.
