The chaotic plot narrated by Quinn (who often breaks the fourth wall and dazzles the audience) is well-crafted and entertaining. But what makes it even more exciting are multiple fighting sequences and phenomenal stunts. Continue reading #WomeninAction: ‘Birds of Prey’, Glitter Bombs, and the Importance of a Hair Tie
he’s a badass with a vocabulary full of vulgarities. Her favorite colors are black and red, but also pink and blue. Some people call her crazy, but she only wants to be graciously considered the most dangerous villain of the New New Gotham. Is it too much to ask? What else does Harley Quinn have to do?
The most notorious anti-heroine is back in the second season of the “Harley Quinn” series. Justin Halpern, Dean Lorey, and Patrick Schumacker bring even more carnage, more limbs flying around, and more blood splattering. Continue reading The Second Season of “Harley Quinn” Establishes and Celebrates the Anti-Heroine’s Sexuality
In pop culture, especially in film and television discourse, we meet characters that mean a lot to us. They have an immense power to shape and shift our minds and, often, change our views. We look up to them and cheer them on in their struggles presented in a film or a series.
That character for me is Lana Winters portrayed by outstanding Sarah Paulson. The character is many things – a famous journalist, a lesbian, and a fearless woman introduced in the second season of “American Horror Story: Asylum.” Continue reading Lana Winters of “American Horror Story” and The Issues of the 60s’ Homosexuality, Abortion, and Adoption
When you join “Home Alone” and “Die Hard” together, then blend it with the gore of “Kill Bill,” you may just create something exciting and bloody as hell. The newest creation from Cary Murnion and Jonathan Millot tried it and directed a spunky film where Lulu Wilson shines brighter and scares more than Kevin James as a neo-nazi. Yes, I just said that. Continue reading Review: “Becky” is a Gory Revenge Thriller
Imagine Me & You” is not the most astonishing picture but it’s still a lovely, warm rom-com with elements of drama. Its subject is essential in regards to pop culture and society, even now. It helped me and shone a light on diversity and, in turn, made me realize my sexual orientation later in life. It’s interesting how film can shape your future, even if you don’t know it. It’s a soul-lifting film with Lena Headey and Piper Perabo, who have incredible chemistry portraying Luce and Rachel. If you want to watch something warm about love, soulmates and finding each other, this is the film. Continue reading “Imagine Me & You” And Its Importance in Search of My Sexuality
Through the prism of Boovs, “Home” illustrates a good example in the context of that subject and teaches the youngest viewers about life values in a natural way.

Anybody who knows me also remembers that I absolutely and utterly adore “Schitt’s Creek.” This Canadian television series created by Dan and Eugene Levy is a great, smart, and incredibly funny sitcom about a once-wealthy family who loses all their money and is forced to live in a small town called Schitt’s Creek. Said town was once bought for the son by the father as a joke. In effect, it’s the only asset that the Rose family possesses (and is ready to hang onto it as long as they find another buyer).
Every single character created by Levys is mastered to perfection. Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy) is a smart businessman and a proud creator of once incredibly famous Rose Video. Moira (Catherine O’Hara), a matriarch of the family, is a soap opera star. Their children – Alexis (Annie Murphy) and David (Dan Levy), although not experienced in adult life (let’s remember that they are adults), they bring the most laugh. Besides this one family that we focus on, we are also graced by the presence of Stevie Budd (Emily Hampshire) – motel’s receptionist, Roland Schitt (Chris Elliott), and Jocelyn Schitt (Jennifer Robertson). Continue reading “Fear not, she hath risen!”, Or Moira Rose in a Nutshell
Can you recollect those moments from your life that become exceedingly significant for you and your memory, although they don’t seem vital for your life path? I, for example, often think about that time when my wife and I got stuck on West Magnolia Boulevard and North Niagara Street. Her car broke down; hence we had to wait for a tow truck. It took a couple of hours to organize this. Not wanting to waste time, we went to buy a sandwich in a little Italian-styled restaurant and waited for a rescue. Continue reading The City of Angels Perceived Through One’s Eyes And Hollywood Depicted in “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood”
With the beginning of February, Netflix in the Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America began to offer Ghibli Studio films in its repertoire. This announcement generated great joy and inspired fans to refresh those classics. Hayao Miyazaki tends to, more often than not, select a female protagonist as a lead and a hero of his films. Coming-of-age stories about young women in a world of fantasy and magic are a great manifesto to learn from, perfect for the young female audience. Two films that are personally very dear to me are “Kiki’s Delivery Service” and “Spirited Away.” Continue reading Hayao Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away” and “Kiki’s Delivery Service” As Lessons About Growth and Significance of Hard Work
