NETFLIX SERIES SHINES NEW LIGHT ON ISABELLA STEWART GARDNER MUSEUM HEIST

In the early hours of March 18, 1990, two men dressed in police uniforms pushed the buzzer of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Only 81 minutes later, the two thieves walked out of Gardner's museum with $500 million worth of works of art, committing the single largest property theft in the world –…

GOLDEN GLOBES 2021: THE WINNERS, HITS AND MISSES

Unsurprisingly, the 78th Golden Globe Awards looked a bit different this year striped of the usual extravagance and free-wheeling party surrounding the ceremony. On Feb. 28, the Globes tried to weather both recent accusations of the Hollywood Foreign Press' lack of inclusivity and diversity following an investigation by the Los Angeles Times, and technological glitches.…

MARTINS IMHANGBE MAKES HIS TV DEBUT IN THE HOTLY ANTICIPATED NETFLIX DRAMA “BRIDGERTON”

For stage actor Martins Imhangbe, the realm of television is a whole new world. Branching out from his past roles on the stage like in Death of a Salesman and The Tragedy of King Richard II, Imhangbe is making his small screen debut this year in the highly anticipated Shonda Rhimes creation Bridgerton. The show,…

THE BEST, WORST AND JUST PLAIN MEH NETFLIX ORIGINALS OF 2020

Netflix has a bit of a problem. When the streaming service first entered the world of original content in the early 2010’s with shows like House of Cards and Orange is the New Black, they quickly established themselves as synonymous with the notion of “quality television” (we don’t need to talk about Hemlock Grove). Like…

DAVID FINCHER’S ‘MANK’: ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING

https://youtu.be/aSfX-nrg-lI Mank is a phenomenal piece of cinema, but it is not a very entertaining movie. What David Fincher has achieved is a sweeping parlor trick that satirizes the majesty of Hollywood’s Golden Age, captured at a moment when the industry was clawing its way out of the Great Depression. The film’s production and its…

ANA LILY AMIRPOUR’S ‘RIDE IT OUT’ BELONGS IN A TIME CAPSULE

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JaGmaiKRLA During a 2017 interview with Berlinale Talents, 40-year-old writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, The Bad Batch) described the year after she had graduated from UCLA as disempowering. Amirpour was married at the time (i.e., 2009). She had written a script. She had landed an agent and a manager, both…

WHY BROADCAST TV HAS FALLEN OUT OF FAVOR

While the Primetime Emmy’s do not mean everything (often getting notoriously snubbed can actually be better for PR and viewership, just ask The Wire or Orphan Black), they certainly are a good indication of clout. This year’s Emmy nominations saw a slew of pleasant surprises among many major series and acting categories, from Zendaya’s well-deserved Outstanding Lead…

REAL LIFE ROMANCE ON NETFLIX’S DATING AROUND

Reality TV is the often the most compelling when it is just that: reality. In the world of dating shows, though, realness is often in short order. Popular shows like The Bachelor, Love Island, and the outrageous Too Hot To Handle seem to favor grandeur over substance, shock value over connection. Enter Dating Around, a…

DISCLOSURE: THE CASE FOR NUANCE IN TRANS REPRESENTATION

Examples of trans representation, most often negative ones, are more common in mainstream media than one might first guess. Think of how many times you’ve seen a man dress up as a woman onscreen for comedic effect. Cross-dressing is a ubiquitous trope in American comedies, from Some Like it Hot to The Jeffersons to How…

TIGER KING’S BONUS EPISODE ADDS NEXT TO NOTHING AND SUBTRACTS A FEW THINGS AS WELL

Let’s skip to the end for a second: “The Tiger King & I,” Netflix’s rush-job bonus episode of overnight mega-sensation Tiger King, is uncomfortable to watch. At face value that may sound like a glowing review, considering the docuseries’ first seven episodes churned stomachs with everything from trucks of expired Walmart meat to a Tiger-amputated…

COMPANIES + BRANDS JOIN THE BATTLE TO FIGHT COVID-19: LVMH, GM, SIRIANO, AND MORE

With the global death toll reaching over 33,000 and medical, health, and safety supplies quickly diminishing, many companies worldwide have started conducting ways to combat the Coronavirus pandemic. LVMH of France has spearheaded the movement with their efforts being heavily highlighted in the media. This mecca of a company was the first to announce, over…

THE ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS ARE OUT FOR 2020

Oscar is a picky man who fraternizes, for the most part, with fellow white males. You’ll often find him comfortable in their homes, but that doesn’t stop Hollywood from getting dolled up each year to entice him into the shelves of more diverse living rooms. The 92nd Academy Awards nominations proved that this isn't an…
