06.19.2017 | By |

This week in movies we see the release of Michael Bay’s final direction of a Transformers movie. We’ll have a review this Wednesday at 4pm. Also, there’s an informative food doc about GMO’s you should see it’s called Food Evolution. Now that Amazon has bought Whole Foods, this doc comes at a right time for our nutritious curiosity. We like the indies this week. Beguiled with a fantastic cast starring Nicole Kidman, who has had some sort of renaissance, plus, The Big Sick where white and Middle Eastern characters begin to interact romantically in cinema. Enjoy the trailers and remember to listen to our podcast this Friday for our review of Transformers: The Last Knight. Read More

TODAY SHOW: I Talk ‘Wonder Woman,’ Katy Perry, ‘Queen Sugar’ Season 2

05.31.2017 | By |

These segments are my absolute favorites because of how informative they are. It takes me a full day of focus to research all the items, which are usually about 10, to digest and put them into succinct words ready for television. I was very happy to be able to review the biggest and buzziest film of the year – Wonder Woman along with recommending several other other movies, music albums and TV shows for you to see and listen to this June. Please, click on the video and see what catches your eye!

This Week In Movies: ‘The Dinner,’ ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2’

05.2.2017 | By |

This week’s movie slate is not a Hollywood moviegoer’s dream. There is only one tentpole movie release, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and the rest are indie fare that lack buzz and excitement. The exploration of the human spirit is the common theme among our limited releases and though that’s not exciting, it is interesting. GOTG 2 is as much fun as you’ll have at the movies this summer, but Richard Gere’s family thriller The Dinner, does capture a feeling of Roman Polanski’s Carnage. Some star power also helps the indie films with stars such as Naomi Watts and Liev Schrieber leading their respective films. See what interests you and let us know. Enjoy the trailers and listen to our podcast for our in-depth reviews of this week’s releases and more! Read More

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.
