2017 Golden Globes Recap

The Golden Globes are typically known as the most-laid back award shows out of all the television/movie recognition ceremonies. Actors and actresses are drinking and dining while watching the awards, which leads to funny camera shot expressions and sometimes hilarious moments when they are presenting. This year’s ceremony, however, had a more subdued tone and wasn’t […]

Fences: Movie Review

I just came back from watching Fences, and I’m calling it now: this movie deserves all the Oscars.

What it’s like to be a Female Director

Much of the publicity surrounding sexism in Hollywood is focused on the actresses, and how their pay is lower than their male counterparts.  In the second part of my interview with director Christine Swanson (click here to read the first part), she highlights an issue that barely captures headlines: female directors don’t often get the […]

Exclusive Interview with Christine Swanson

Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of interviewing Christine Swanson. She is the award winning director of films such as  Two Seasons,  All about You,  and All About Us.  Her recent film, Love Under New Management: The Miki Howard Story (which tells the story of the R&B/jazz singer of  “Baby be Mine,” and Come Share […]
