Adam’s Wintery Thriller Pick: ‘Deadfall’

In: Adam, Movies

I loathe seeing straight guys on the big screen and lustin’ for them- it seems desperado for me. HOWever, when a movie brings the sexiness and thriller factor like “Deadfall” does, I’m willing to make an exception. Eric Bana gets dirty and terrifying as the murderous and slightly incestuously inclined antagonist thief who gets pitted against the rustic good boy and hot as heck Charlie Hunnam (REMEMBER him from Queer as Folk? Didn’t think he’d turn out this hot!). While Charlie’s current IMDB pics make him look like a Ted Kaczynski lookalike, in this 2012 release, he looks clean shaven and good enough to take home to mom. Speaking of mom, the movie packs some real star power and uses Sissy Spacek as the sweet, supportive if not slightly sad mother of Hunnam who brings home dirty girl Olivia Wilde of “House” fame. Olivia plays the greedy and abused sister to Bana’s psychopathic ways as she gets caught between wanting to please both her new beau and her controlling bro.

That’s about as much of the plot as I want to give away without ruining anything for you- and to be honest the general storyline is pretty predictable within the first 20 minutes of the film and yet, you follow this one from start to finish without a second of boredom. Following the separated siblings after a big heist, you get to watch their demons and characters play out as you assume they’ve never spent more than 20 mins apart from one another in their lives. The movie is violent, smart, sexy (again, quite sexy) and a good ride. Taking place in the American Tundra, there’s a ton of beautiful shots and haunting frozen scenes that juxtapose the eventual torturous bloodied scenes you know are inevitable.

We gays LOVE to brunch: that’s a fact. Be it to enjoy soaking up last night’s toxins with fresh fruit and sweet yogurt or to meet up after a long week and catch up on the ups and downs over mimosas, brunching is a mo’ tradition that even the most conservative of politicians can never take away from us. Something else we gays ought to and do enjoy: giving back to our community to gay it forward (thanks Jack MacFarland) and appreciate that our success as a collective is just that, a group effort and we need to support those that have come before and will come after.

As such, how else could you celebrate this coming weekend than donating your hunger, your laughter and a bit of your $ to YouthCO’s Brunch With Benefits? YouthCO, for those who have never been to this site before and haven’t heard of their amazing work, is a local, Vancouver, organization that works to reduce the impact of HIV and Hep C on the youth of British Coloumbia through peer support, eduction and meaningful community engagement. Full disclosure concerning my bias for this great organization: I’ve recently joined YouthCO’s board to get first hand experience of the amazing work and dedication of its staff and huge volunteership. This weekend however, is about meeting other, giving and supporting members of your community over a fabulous (I said it) meal at one of Vancouver’s most illustrious restaurants, all in the name of philanthropy and a great time.

Our latest Homorazzi episode just aired yesterday on OUTtv with Tommy, Nic, Patrick and Adam (shown above, from left to right). In case you missed it (or if you’re not in Canada), we’ve got the full episode for you to check out below. This was our eighth episode and we definitely had a lot of fun with it.

After sharing our Halloween costumes with you, we move into Gossip and discuss the rumor that Jessica Simpson’s dad is gay. One of the four panelists admits that he finds Joe Simpsons attractive and perhaps has a little crush on him.

In Music, we talk about No Doubt‘s controversial music video and Christina Aguilera’s new Lotus album, which quickly turns into why Tommy thinks Aguilera is “TOO MUCH!” As we delve into Movies, we zone in on the biggest movies of the moment, Skyfall and Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Moving onto TV (which Adam & Tommy watch A LOT of), the first show to be discussed is The New Normal. “Nene Leakes is turning me out,” says Tommy. Nic tries to say something is “turning him out” later in the episode, but it doesn’t go so well. LOL. Other shows discussed include American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, DTLA, and RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars.

Adam’s Indie Pick: ‘Sound of My Voice’

In: Adam, Movies

Recently Nic turned me onto a little known 2011 indie flick: “Sound of My Voice“. It’s a trip. Honestly, I have a huge appreciation for the “Blair Witch” style productions that shoestring budget their way to a well done result. This… let’s call it a drama/sci fi/thriller does not depend on explosions or CGI to make you watch the screen closely, this one is all about the script. Not to ruin anything, “Sound of My Voice” follows two film makers as they attempt to infiltrate a cult led by the hauntingly gorgeous and C-list (hopefully not much longer) actress Brit Marling who purports to be from the near, apocalyptic future. On premise alone, I was definitely down to try this one out. In a time where originality is harder and harder to spot, I zoomed in on this piece like a shot. And, was happy for it.

The movie nearly entirely occurs in the cult’s basement but you don’t care. The outfits are mostly white robes, but again you don’t care. You’re too entranced by the enigmatic leader and her agressive but soothing words as she syren songs her followers to the weirdest ends. Speaking of ends, while I’ll give NOTHING away I will say that the conclusion of this one is no let down and answers the myriad of questions- to a point- that will inevitably arise as you watch this one.

Hot damn, I think I found my pick of the season and we’re only two episodes in. As much-talked-about new series like Revolution, The Mob Doctor and Partners blow it IMO despite bigger star names and budgets in their cast/crew/creatorship records, the little comedic engine(/ingenue) that could- The Mindy Project staring Mindy Kaling– is absolutely killing it. I know we’re very, very early in the season (literally episode 2 for most of the new shows), but that’s how this game of television is played and most don’t get a second, third or fourth chance to survive the ever-daunting chop block. Just like the exec big wigs, I’m a split-decision guy and I’m ready to announce that as of last night’s episode, The Mindy Project is the one to watch.

My original review of the premiere of this puppy was all thumbs up athat one of my favorite characters of the iconic US take on The Office was starting up her own show with her unique brand of 20/30-something female humour. Without re-hashing the themes and motive of the show (again, check out my original article for those deets), I will focus on this newest episode as post pilot we get a slightly less boy-crazy and desperate Mindy with a bit more wit and backbone which is heavily welcomed, offering us a protagonist with a relatable perspective and purpose. She is the smart, sassy everywoman of today. And, she’s f-ing hilarious as hell while being her.

‘Last Resort’ Premiere: Sexy or Sucky?

In: Adam, TV Shows

First off, sorry for that abortion of a title: best friend Patrick is the pun-er of the group so I’m left with consonance and desperate ploys for attention haha, bear with me. That said, while my lackadaisical word play leaves a lot to be desired, I most definitely have an opinion on this week’s premiere of Last Resort. A strong B+!!

The pilot was early leaked for those with torrents on their tips and in the know and it was most def worth the watch! Airing Thursdays at 8PM on ABC (quite the strong spot though typically one seen by comedies) this hour long modern look at a possible all out nuclear war put forth a bold first episode as shows across the board attempt to grab our attention and get us returning the following week. Donovan has already given a pre-describer of the show in his Fall Line TV Preview article so I’ll super summarize and just say it concerns the crew of a huge naval sub with all the missiles needed to hold the world for ransom and that’s just what they do as their own loved ones and government seem to want them dead. Okay, spoiler over, read on to find out just how sexy Scott Speedman is and who my fave female pic goes to- oh, and of course read my bitchiness about the numerous errors that kept these kids from an A grade.

2012 Emmys: Our Predictions

In: Adam, Donovan, Matt, Nic, Patrick, TV Shows, Tyrell

Since the 64th annual Emmys air on ABC tomorrow, we thought it was the perfect time to share our predictions on who’ll walk away with the coveted statues. Will reigning shows like Modern Family and Mad Men continue their winning streaks, or will new upstarts like Girls and Homeland crash the party? For the first time, none of the big four broadcast networks has a series among the nominees for drama series. In fact, only two nominees in the comedy category air on a major network. It’s all about cable these days. Without further ado, check out all our predictions below. Which writer do you think will get the most correct? Sound off in our comments section with your thoughts.

So, I have to admit that I’m one of the “bad” gays who think that there’s such a thing as TOO gay, and honey boo boo child, Wil Heuser of Big Brother is among the many of the mo’s on TV right now who send shivers down my spine. Well-known for not being very eventful in the house this year- Season 14 of the hit reality show- Wil has been a frequently googled evicted houseguest for his many impersonation and comedic YouTube vids. Admittedly I’ve never watched any of his older stuff and likely wouldn’t have been searching up his new stuff until a friend of mine stumbled across this hilarious spoof released soon after his eviction in late August that mocks his fellow housemates for their idiosyncrasies and straight up insanities.

The reason this is so funny is not so much for the “brilliant and super insightful writing” but rather that he’s the earliest to post a first-person account of both watching the show now that he’s on the outs and being in there himself- you’ll see more than a couple jokes you’ve been makin’ for years about this show, posted for all the world to see. If you’ve watched this show at all this season you’ll want to see this- particularly if you hated its production, un-aging host Julie Chen or any of the loud and borderline nuts inhabitants/contestants. That said, if you love them and the whole series you’ll still absolutely get a kick out of this as Wil pulls off the perfect Ian impression, blinks his way through all of Frank “greatest one liners” (put in quotation marks because I’d argue he’s one of the dumbest people ever to nearly win this thing) and fake tans the hell outta himself to show JoJo just how ridiculous she looked.
