Movie Review: My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2

For those of you that watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding back in 2003, it was a surprise blockbuster hit. Many people in the audience could identify with the quirky and eclectic family norms presented. I know I definitely could relate to some of the loud, crazy antics on screen with my European heritage. In the sequel, we find our protagonists, Ian and Toula, surrounded by the same loud and rambunctious family, although some details have changed.  Now thirteen years later comes My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2. Ian (John Corbett) and Toula (Nia Vardalos) have been married for almost twenty years. They have one daughter, Paris (Elena Kampouris),...

What’s Up With Season 3 of BALLERS?

What’s Up With Season 3 of BALLERS?

  It is outta there! No, BALLERS is too much of a hit for HBO to be canceled, it is just changing its locale. The production has packed its bags (seen here) and is no longer centered in Miami, Florida. It has moved shop to southern California and the series will be filming its third season there. Damn, the Sunshine State really helped give the show a great look and feel. The reason for the move has nothing to do with plot devices or even cast, like Dwayne Johnson, wanting to be closer to home. It is all about money. The state of California is offering a great tax break incentive to lure the show to the entertainment capital. It...

Five Observations from the GIRLS Season Six Teaser

Five Observations from the GIRLS Season Six Teaser

As we all know, the final season of Girls is coming to HBO early next year, but to whet your appetites until then, a teaser trailer has been released. In only 41 seconds I have about 6000 questions, but for the purposes of keeping this brief, let’s just focus on 5 key moments in this teaser that indicate season 6 to be the best yet. Marnie & Desi My first question, is why does Marnie look like a 1950’s femme fatale in her head scarf, glasses and sports car? My second question is, why is Desi driving? My third question is, where the heck is Ray? So at the end of last season, Marnie and Ray decide to officially give things a go which...

Divorce: “Another Party”

Divorce: “Another Party”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) saw a job opportunity come and go when she couldn’t keep her divorce under control. Robert (Thomas Haden Church) was behaving erratically and being beyond affectionate with his kids. Of course, we find out he’s been taking his lawyer’s advice and juicing with testosterone. Probably not super healthy, but whatever he’s got to do to survive, right?  Which means going to church too, I guess. This week, Frances and Robert go head to head with their lawyers regarding taking care of the kids. What seems so appealing in Robert and his attention to the children is really...

Westworld Season Finale: “The Bicameral Mind”

Westworld Season Finale: “The Bicameral Mind”

The Westworld season finale managed to wrap up a plethora of loose ends while simultaneously opening manty other doors to what may follow. A number of fan theories were confirmed – namely that William is The Man in Black and Bernard is Arnold or Arnold is Bernard…I get confused and that the maze isn’t really a maze after all. What was brilliant about the finale was that these loose ends were tied up straight away and the rest of the episode focussed on more pressing matters – things that are going to be important for seasons to come. One of the biggest fears surrounding artificial intelligence is its own self-realization that it is...

Movie Review: Keanu

Movie Review: Keanu

After making a name for themselves on the Fox sketch comedy series Mad TV, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele broke out on their own in the critically acclaimed series Key & Peele. For five seasons, the two took on issues from a uniquely ridiculous and insightful perspective. For their first big screen collaboration, Key and Peele opted for full-on surrealism. Keanu is the tale of a recently dumped sad sack named Rell (Peele). Initially unable to move on, Rell finds new meaning in his life when he comes across an adorable kitten on his doorstep, the titular Keanu. Rell quickly bonds with the cat and delights in his little...

Insecure: Episode 7 & the Season Finale

Insecure: Episode 7 & the Season Finale

The first season of this HBO comedy hit off with a bang and continued throughout the season. Following Issa as she navigates work and relationships amidst growing into adulthood and figuring out who she is has provided both plenty of laughs and cringe-worthy moments for the audience. The show was a hit, and enough of one to already be secured for a second season along with other first season shows, Divorce and Westworld. let’s take a look at what we got.   Episode 7: “Real as F*ck” In this episode, we begin by seeing Lawrence (Jay Ellis) suspect something more is going on with Issa and Daniel (Y’lan Noel)....

Divorce: “Church”

Divorce: “Church”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) continued with divorce proceedings, represented by Jeffrey DeMunn and Dean Winters. Frances learned that the couple is essentially broke as Robert has continuously sunk money into real estate properties to flip but has only flopped. Robert was determined to bounce back, not only financially but from Frances’ infidelity. He has a sexual experience of his own, though not entirely satisfying. This week Frances begins as a prospect for job hunting executives for a position with Sotheby’s. With quick thinking, she asks for her own name to be...

Westworld: “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

Westworld: “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

It is impossible to disagree with the fact that every episode of Westworld thus far has been compellingly unique and brilliantly existential. We have experienced the sentient growth of (mainly) Dolores, Maeve, and now Bernard. “The Well-Tempered Clavier” is the series at its darkest, with much regard to Bernard and Ford. I’m feeling heavy Hannibal Lecter vibes being channeled by Anthony Hopkins into Ford, adding to his sociopathic persona. There are many angles and approaches to predict where Westworld goes from here, so let’s break it down into our main characters. Dolores Dolores has existed as our predominant protagonist in the...

Movie Review: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Movie Review: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

  Hoo boy, a lot to unpack here. Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is the follow-up to 2013’s Man of Steel, the movie which dared to ask, “What if Superman 9/11-ed Metropolis?” Now, Superman must contend with a public that questions if he is worthy of their trust, debates over whether he should continue being a hero, and suddenly it seems like there’s more meta-context here than actual plot. Because really, this is going to be the main storyline of the DC cinematic universe (Suicide Squad being relatively tangential and a completely different kind of mess to unwrap) and yet we’ve still got nothing of substance from the...
