In modern parlance, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo serves up the tea. But honeychild, it does not stop with tea, it continues on serving a twelve course meal, plus some bubbling hot, sugar-encrusted pie for dessert. This is a tale of old Hollywood glamour, glistening and opulent on top yet filthy underneath. It illustrates … Read more

An Ode to Rape Culture

Last night I watched Hick,  a probably little-seen indie film from 2011. This isn’t going to be a movie review, though the film itself wasn’t bad. It feels a little scattered in places, which I attribute to it being based on a book, as if they just filmed some scenes without the further exposition and … Read more

Chloe Sevigny and The Hollywood Status Quo

So during Variety’s panel at the Cannes Film Festival  Chloe Sevigny spoke out about her experiences with inappropriate sexual comments from directors, etc. in Hollywood, which she shies away from even calling harassment.   The reaction? How dare she. She exposed her nipples on multiple occasions in movies! She had a guy’s penis. IN HER … Read more

Holy Ghost DVD Review & Giveaway Ends 08/27

Considering that the only other Christian documentary I’ve seen was Jesus Camp, which was so disturbing that I still keep it filed under “horror movies”, I wasn’t sure what to expect from Holy Ghost. It’s an interesting concept: a filmmaker and his crew decide to make a film led entirely by the Holy Spirit. No … Read more

‘Frozen’ Made Me Gay

…And by “gay” I mean oh so very happy. The controversy over hidden gay themes within this magical children’s cartoon? Not so much. “Oh that silly yam!” you’re probably thinking to yourself. “That’s ridiculous! She’ll say anything for a laugh.” But no. In case you haven’t heard, last month radio talk show host Kevin Swanson … Read more
