11 Essential Movies About The Lives of Immigrants and Refugees

Through cinema, we can find empathy and understanding. “Relating a person to the whole world;” Andrei Tarkovsky wrote, “that is the meaning of cinema.” In light of the political tumult and injustice of the past week, it’s easy to feel that movies are a frivolity — a way of escaping into fantasy and neglecting the problems of the real world. But as Tarkovsky suggests, the meaning of cinema exceeds mere escapism. Unlike the language of politics, cinema has the power to cut through the defenses of ideology and bring us into empathic communion with the characters onscreen. […]

Bad A$$ Alice Is Back! WATCH HERE   They are saying that this is the Final Chapter and maybe it is for Milla Jovovich but this Billion DollarPlus franchise has entertained me for years and if ollywood Bigwigs have a working brain under those toupees, they will take a respectful hiatus before Debuting: Resident Evil-Origins (which is a suggestion, not a real movie).

From The Heart

I have been so bummed out these past few weeks, I can barely motivate myself to post anything.  So as I prepare for the inevitable deluge of white nationalists preparing to assault my sensibilities, I am choosing to counter their debilitating effects with  some well warranted visuals.

American Honey: Movie Review

Still a bit raw from last year’s shut out of the movie Carol. However I was intrigued by the pic above because I thought that Rihanna was doing her fake lesbian shtick again. London BFI London Film Festival Sasha Lane and her American Honey director Andrea Arnold make for a chic duo, but after watching this movie, not so much. Sasha Lane knew something big was going to happen to her. She couldn’t have predicted the details – being plucked from obscurity by filmmaker Andrea Arnold and chosen to star in her Cannes-acclaimed feature film […]

indubitably Insane

With a special thanks to sexy Margot Robbie, Harley Quinn is everywhere these days, but the truth is she’s been a fan favorite since long before Suicide Squad hit the big screen, but more so since. In fact Harley was one opf the few characters that interested me in the few and sporadic episodes I watched of the batman cartoon series.

Voted BEST Film of the 20th CENTURY (So Far…)

David Lynch’s mind-bending mystery-drama Mullholland Drive IS a brilliant commentary on Hollywood’s machinations AND has been named by BBC Culture’s critics’ poll as the best film of the century so far. Its very roots lie in television: the film began as a failed TV pilot and was salvaged into feature-length format Mulholland Drive’s own troubled history, and the studio politics and power plays depicted by Lynch in the film itself, hardly feel like coincidences.    SOMETHING BAD IS HAPPENING Unravel the Mystery of MULHOLLAND Drive   Mulholland Drive (2001) is a tale of romantic affliction.

Every Damn Time I Write Something…

I just wrote a damn article on fake bisexual actresses who surf the wave of such an orientation while steadfastly in a monogamous relationship with a man. The FITST woman on my list was Angelina Jolie, who I accused of doing the same thing and milking her affair with Jenny Shimizu that is at least 22 years old. It’s like Jolie reads this blog (Actually I’ve heard rumors for weeks) and wanted to prove me wrong because: Angelina Jolie Filed for Divorce From Brad Pitt! Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt and […]
