Logo for 'Wicked'

Today, I saw the award-winning musical Wicked at the Majestic and I fucking loved it!! That’s right, I didn’t just love it … I fucking loved it! I’ve only been able to see Chicago and The Phantom of the Opera on-stage, but I adore anything that has to do with Broadway. The musical centers around telling the ‘untold stories’ of the witches of Oz. Read the rest of this entry »

Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer in 'True Blood'

Anna Paquin & Stephen Moyer in 'True Blood'

“True Blood’ is finally back on-air with their second season kicking off … I may have had to watch the first episode boot-leg off the Internet, cause I don’t have HBO … but, I must say, it was a spectacular start. I forgot how much I love Anna Paquin in this series and the complex stories the show brings to the small screen. Read the rest of this entry »

Adam Lambert in Rolling Stone magazine

Adam Lambert in Rolling Stone magazine

Adam Lambert … of American Idol fame, unless you’ve been living under a rock … recently graced the cover of iconic music rag Rolling Stone. I gotta say, with last month’s crazy-sexy Lady Gaga cover and this week’s Lambert “Liberation” cover … I have re-grown faith in this magazine. Lately, it’s been a fucking bore and I’m grateful the music magazine is getting edgy and interesting again …

Nevertheless, Lambert comes out as a homosexual in this issue … as if that’s a huge shocker … but, I think it’s pretty damn cool to “come out” in Rolling Stone opposed to People like Clay Aiken and Lance Bass. This kind of gives him a little more credibility in my opinion. Read the rest of this entry »

'So You Think You Can Dance' logo for Fox

'So You Think You Can Dance' logo for Fox

My favorite summer show is back on … I know it’s a reality show, but come on … at least this one has talented people and not a bunch of sluts and douches.

For me, what sets So You Think You Can Dance apart from Dancing with the Stars or America’s Best Dance Crew is that it’s not one-note. There is a wide-range of dances and the majority of them are emotional and exciting to watch. The men of this season have caught my attention … a big shocker, cause most of the time the men are pain-stakingly annoying. Read the rest of this entry »

Mock set-up

Drawing of Heidi & Spencer from http://www.splashgossip.com

I do not understand why these two disgusting body sacks are even allowed on television. They are officially done with I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here!, though I’m unaware of why they were even given a chance to return to that poor excuse of a reality show.

Now that they returned and left the show (again) Heidi is at the hospital with a gastric ulcer from their “isolation” as punishment for leaving the show … which was characterized as the same as “Guantanamo Bay.” I’m sure the prisoners really appreciate the comparison …

Oh, and now, they are suing NBC over what has happened … seems to me like they are fishing for more money. It may be mean, but I’m just fed up with everyone giving these “celebrities” more than their 15 minutes of fame.

Their whole spiel on how they are both huge celebrities and too good for the show is ridiculous … You douches were on some crappy MTV-scripted reality show that no one really even cared about. You’re neither talented in voice or acting ability and the majority of people in the business think you’re a fucking joke. Please, stop wasting my time and just disappear back into normality.

By the way, I applaud Janice Dickinson for saying Heidi sounded like a drowning cat when she sang, but why on Earth did you apologize?!?

**Watch the NBC Today Show clip where Al Roker totally rips into Heidi and Spencer for being the poster children for everything that is wrong with celebrities today … Love it, you rock Roker!

Anton Yelchin, Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Karl Urban, John Cho & Zoe Saldana in the 2009 version of 'Star Trek'

I know everyone was petrified to learn X-Men Origins: Wolverine was a deplorable, piece-of-shit excuse for a film and a disgraceful way to kick-off the summer blockbuster … but, don’t fear, cause Star Trek … that’s right, Star Trek has made its way to the big screen and it has kicked some major ass!

Anna Paquin

Anna Paquin has got to be one of the most talented actresses of this generation. She may not be conventional or another Disney-tween annoyance, but she’s an actress with potential, vulnerability and range in many roles. From her humble beginnings as a child-star to becoming a full-fledged sex-symbol … I think it’s time to showcase her many impressive feats on the big and small screen alike.

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman in 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'

I had been so excited to see X-Men Origins: Wolverine … I got my tickets a week in advance and not only because it had more of Hugh Jackman in the buff, but because I am a huge X-Men fanatic. I loved the X-Men franchise … that is, until now. Read the rest of this entry »

So far this year, I have seen a ton of movies … I don’t think I can even ponder on how many times I’ve been to the cinema this year alone. Sadly, I’ve been disappointed. However, blaming the whole industry for the crap-tastic Nicolas Cage one-track, monotone voice in Knowing or the incredibly ridiculous, hilarious (not in a good way) Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, won’t do anyone any favors. Therefore, I think it’s important to highlight the few gems that have come our way.

Isla Fisher in 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'

Isla Fisher in 'Confessions of a Shopaholic'

Confessions of a Shopaholic

So … I know a bunch of people were pissed that the movie wasn’t set in England. But, honestly, if people got over these stupid notions that every adaptation has to be the same word-for-word on-screen, they wouldn’t have given a shit and enjoyed the movie a lot more. This flick is extremely cute and funny and Isla Fisher is amazing. She encompassed the extreme of materialism in the world. The scenes in Shopaholics Anonymous should be enough for any person to catch this movie at least once. By far the best chick-flick of the year … so far. Read the rest of this entry »

The crap-tacular movies shoved down America’s kisser for January have already come and gone and the Academy Awards for the past year are just around the corner. The nominations weren’t that much of a surprise, but there were those few surprises and snubs…Don’t worry, I’m not afraid to go there and give it to those Academy bitches. Enjoy!

Best Motion Picture of the Year
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Frost/Nixon
Milk
The Reader
Slumdog Millionaire
Dev Patel & Freida Pinto in 'Slumdog Millionaire'

Dev Patel & Freida Pinto in 'Slumdog Millionaire'

The Best Picture race is not all that unusual…the intense drama flicks and political movies raid the category. It is really not that hard to predict that Slumdog Millionaire will win. They have won everything and they are the total underdogs! The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is a very strange movie, it’s not the typical drama that get’s nominated and the Academy likes different. Frost/Nixon and Milk are both very strong political movies and The Reader involves Nazi’s…so, of course they will get nominated. All the other movies are great, but Slumdog Millionaire came from the bottom and rose to the top.

Well…the Golden Globes are just around the corner ummm…tonight! Yeah, I just got around to posting this…and the awards season is in full effect. As a gay man, I might be pushing the stereotype that we are all movie buffs and throw Oscar parties, but I honestly don’t give a shit, because I love the fucking cinema!

Since boredom bears upon me easily, don’t expect a full list of every category, cause this ain’t the Oscars, bitches.

Anne Hathaway in 'Rachel Getting Married'

Anne Hathaway in 'Rachel Getting Married'

Best Actress-Drama

I’m freaking ecstatic about Anne Hathaway getting nominated for Rachel Getting Married, not only because she is one of my favorite (new) actresses, but she actually delivered a beautiful performance in this seriously emotional flick. Since I haven’t even seen I’ve Loved You So Long (hence no one else has), for which Kristin Scott Thomas was nominated, I’ve got to say Kate Winslet will take the gold for Revolutionary Road, in which she reunited with hunky Titanic-lover Leo DiCaprio. Yeah, you remember the whole nude drawing and fucking in the car with the handprint…Got to love it! Meryl Streep (Doubt) and Angelina Jolie (Changeling) were also nominated in this category, but they have enough awards…share the wealth, you talented bitches!

Sean Penn & James Franco

Sean Penn & James Franco's intimate scene in 'Milk'

The film industry seems to run on the stereotype that art nor cinema could be generated without the helpful hands of homosexuals. Yet, the gay films that have come out of the past 20 years seem to tell the LGBT-community that “coming out of the closet” can never lead to a happy ending. Read the rest of this entry »

Iconic image of Bettie Page

It’s hard to imagine the sexual revolution without pin-up girl Bettie Page. Her fun, care-free pictures have been immortalized on postcards, whiskey glasses, playing cards and even on film in 2005’s Notorious Bettie Page where she was portrayed by uber-talented actress Gretchen Mol to critical acclaim.

Short by Marie Caillou for 'Fear(s) of the Dark'

The expectations going into foreign film Fear(s) of the Dark might have been a little high. But, come on, it’s the French! Aren’t they known for being on-edge and inspiring? Unbeknown to me … The movie fucking sucked. Read the rest of this entry »

Turn that Frown Upside Down!

December 10, 2008

Anna Faris

Anna Faris in 'Smiley Face'

Smoking weed conjures images of lazy couch surfers and video game drones who constantly have the drug-induced munchies. However, for aspiring-actress Jane F. (Anna Faris) in the Gregg Araki flick Smiley Face she believes marijuana can open her mind and get her creative juices flowing. Read the rest of this entry »

A modern interpreation of 'Diana & Actaeon' featuring Kim Cattrall.

A modern interpretation of 'Diana & Actaeon' featuring Kim Cattrall.

Kim Cattrall’s body has become well-known to many Americans on both the big and small screens, especially with her role as cougar-siren Samantha Jones on the hit television show Sex and the City. However, instead of using her sexuality to spike ratings, she hopes to save Titian’s “Diana & Actaeon.”

Photographer Tom Hunter uses Kim to muse Diana, a strong and powerful woman, and the members of La Clique and art history students from the Courtauld to portray Actaeon and the nymphs in his interpretation of the famous painting. Although nudity, in my opinion, has been frowned upon by many Americans … I frankly, don’t see what the problem is … Read the rest of this entry »

With the rush of teenage girls attacking hunky Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart becoming a full-fledged actress and sex symbol, it’s safe to say that the cast of Twilight and the book itself, are becoming powerful forces in pop culture. Quickly racing to the status of Harry Potter and its many stars who include Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Pattinson himself.

Kate Winslet spread in Vanity Fair magazine.

So … there I am scanning Wal-Mart’s so-called book and magazine section (it’s quite pathetic) and all I want to purchase is the latest issue of Vanity Fair, which has uber-talented actress Kate Winslet gracing its cover in nothing but a white coat and stilettos… Read the rest of this entry »
