Episode 14 – Fake News, Rogue One, Golden Globe/SAG Nominations

12.18.2016 | By |



On this episode 14 of the Highly Relevant podcast, we’re reintroducing some pop culture elements back into the show, but I’m keeping politics because Donald Trump has blurred the lines of the affairs of the state and entertainment. No one seems to know what’s what anymore? Regardless, many things have happened in entertainment this week such as the Golden Globes/SAG/Grammy nominations as well as the arrival of “Star Wars: Rogue One” in theaters worth talking about plus more.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Movie Review)

12.13.2016 | By |

The 1-4-0: #RogueOne is not a better film experience than #TheForceAwakens, but it is a solid sci-fi, action film that provides high entertainment value and some nostalgic “cameos” for old-school fans. Read More

8 Movies With Latinos That You Should See This Year

07.22.2016 | By |

Latino Movie Poster CollageIt used to be that whenever Hispanics appeared in English-language media, it was an aberration, a freak happening, a shocking departure (much like when Daddy Yankee’s ‘Gasolina’ was played on Z-100). But that’s not the case anymore. Look at the poster collage below (courtesy of Brian Latimer), it is a testament to how far Hispanic actors have integrated themselves into the fabric of American cinema and pop culture. In my latest NBCLatino article, I highlight the top 8 movies showcasing Latinos that you should keep an eye out for. It begins today with Zoe Saldana in Star Trek Beyond!

01.1.2014 | By |

Every year the power of the Latino consumer grows more and more, and this in turn has forced Hollywood to open its doors (though very slowly) for actual Hispanic movies. Not just films that have a Latino in there somewhere, but films that have a genuine and legitimate story to tell.

6 Hispanic Actors That Could Play Zorro In Fox’s “Zorro Reborn”

12.3.2013 | By |

With our ‘Zorro Reborn’ proof-of-concept trailer article we exclusively posted last week, there has been a plethora of speculation in Hollywood on who could become the next Zorro and lead the Latino masked fugitive into the next generation. On film, Zorro was first played by Douglas Fairbanks in the 20’s, then most recently with Antonio Banderas in 1998 and 2005. Banderas to us inhabited the complete epitome of the character, but with the anti-hero off the screen for the last 8 years, there has been talk from 20th Century Fox, owners of the film rights, of rebooting the swashbuckling hero. But who could take Banderas’ place? With the film not yet greenlit and no set lead role, we take this opportunity to play around with the idea of proposing the six best Hispanic actors, in our opinion, that would be perfect to play the cunning hero of the flowing cape, flat-brimmed hat, and black eye-mask.  Read More

Diego Luna Says That The Americas Will Be ONE Big Country

08.9.2013 | By |

I got a call at my apartment in New York City with a Los Angeles area code. I pick up and it was Diego Luna. I was slated to chat with him regarding Elysium, his new futuristic, politically charged project where he plays Julio, the best friend of Matt Damon’s character Max. He sounds like he is walking the streets of L.A., a deduction I make due to the fact he people keep saying hello to him. A little later the distractions stop and we commence our conversation which ranges from directing Matt Damon in the future, his terrible movies which he loves to the Americas uniting together to create one big ass country. Oh, and we tackle the most consequential question, to me at least… when the hell is he and Gael García Bernal shooting another movie? Read More
