The X-Factor Episode 3 Auditions: Dramarama

In: Tommy D, TV Shows

I feel awful, and I’m gonna tell you why. I have been championing this show since i first heard it was coming for like 1.5 years. Seeing the UK and even the AUS versions, I thought for sure they had it made in the US. Well, either they are f*cking with us, or Simon Cowell has lost his goddamn mind.

I can’t handle anymore boring or bad auditions. It’s no surprise that this show is already losing viewers. I mean, yes they are getting 11 million people, but still no where near what Idol gets. X Factor, you HAVE to step it up.

The only possible reason is that they are doing this awful auditions now so that when they get to bootcamp and the judges houses the talent just blow us away. But it’s not going well X Factor, not at all. I’m still gonna watch religiously but you GOTTA step it up. Judging from the promo for tonight’s show you’ve got some good talent on, don’t f*ck this up Simon. It’s too good of a brand to mess up.

The X-Factor Episode 2: A Star Is Born… Maybe Two

In: Tommy D, TV Shows

Night two of The X-Factor was unfortunately NOT the best episode of the series I have seen. I don’t know what’s going on with the US version. There are very few features and barely 1/4 are the good ones. I have a theory they are trying to build up the momentum, but if they keep showing episodes like last night with mainly bad auditions or joke auditions, they are going to lose viewers.

Here’s my two cents so far. There aren’t very many standout boys I’m seeing right now. I am loving the 30+ though and a couple of the girls really stood out last night.

Here’s a quick little recap of my faves from last night…

The X-Factor Xplained

In: Tommy D, TV Shows

With the premiere of last night’s episode of X Factor USA, I think a lot of people still don’t get the brilliance of this show, including our own Patrick who thinks it just like any other singing competition. Which at first, to the untrained eye it is. You got the audition process, and the judging voting to see who goes through and who doesn’t. What you will notice is that the auditions are done in front of thousands of people which aids in the decision of the judges. Believe me, after watching years of XFUK auditions, some of the acts are absolutely terrible but because the audience cheers for them they get put through. Don’t forget what they are trying to do, find an act to sell lots of records. So audience reaction is major.

So what makes this show different from the others then?

The OTHER Tyra Got Locked Up!

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Tommy D, Totally GAY!

Well well well, not very becoming of America’s Sweetheart and The Next Drag Superstar now is it?

This morning I awoke to read the news that Season 2 RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Tyra “The Other Tyra” Sanchez got busted, arrested and locked up for marijuana possession while driving a car in the lovely state of Georgia. PEACHY!

Mini Ru Pt.2 had a friend with her and they were busted for less than an ounce of weed on them. But here’s the kicker, they were first pulled over for having illegal tinted windows, and the cop could smell raw weed in the car, searched, found it and booked em. HA!

Bare: A Pop Opera Review

In: Random Reads, The Arts, Tommy D

I first came across bare about 4 years ago. Funny enough I was searching for stuff about WICKED and one of the alums of that musical Jenna Leigh Green who played Nessarose was in a musical called bare. She played IVY and her song “All Grown Up” was all over the YouTube dear. It was incredibly haunting and her voice was mind blowing. So I started searching more about this pop opera and pretty much fell in love with it before I even saw it live.

Cut to four years later, and Vancouver’s Fighting Chance Productions (who did a great RENT 2 years ago) put on the western Canadian premiere and I was so jazzed.

BARE is a story of a Catholic High School and tells the tale of a few of it’s seniors. It pretty much unfolds like most high school stories do. Popularity, acceptance, sexuality, love, heartbreak all of that plays a major role in this musical. Love triangles galore, a hilarious nun and a scene stealing fat sister make this story one that pretty much hits close to home for anyone who lived through those awful high school year.

Well Potterheads the time has come for the 8th and FINAL movie in the highest grossing movie franchise in history. I was so nervous for this movie because as an UBER fan I wasn’t sure what they were going to keep, what they were going to omit and how they were going to bring it to the screen. It’s a very odd feeling watching a movie and knowing pretty much exactly whats going to happen. I mean I know the ending of the series and everyone who read the books knows too…so how much do I write about?

I guess from this point on you’ll have some spoilers….well kind of spoilers because let’s face it everyone knows what happens.

In my last Harry Potter review I wrote about how amazing Part 1 was, how it set the tone perfectly and ended at the exact spot that it should’ve, well as soon soon as the lights went down pt2 picked it up and it did not stop. If there is one word to describe this movie, I would say that it is INTENSE. David Yates kept in every major point from the book, everything that needed to be in there to move the story ahead was. What he omitted I actually didn’t even care about, and the way he explained the Horcruxes was perfect.

Since the majority of the cast members on Homorazzi are Canadians, we thought we’d share each of our plans to celebrate our nation’s birthday (from where ever we are in the world). As usual, we’re all over the place this weekend.

Certainly, Vancouver has gone through it’s highs and lows over the past couple years. Last year, the Olympics brought a level of togetherness and patriotism that I had never experienced before with my fellow Canadians. The Canada Day that followed also reached a whole new level in terms of the vibe and electricity in the city. Unfortunately, our city’s global reputation recently received a big black eye as a result of the idiotic rioters that decided to trash the city after the Canucks lost the Stanley Cup. It was a disgusting side of humanity I never wish to see again. With that said, something positive did come out of it. The next day, the city came together to clean up the mess and attempt to show what it means to be a true Canadian/Vancouverite to the rest of the world that had us under a spotlight. We picked up the pieces and I’d like to think we grew stronger as a result.

Now, what does each cast member have planned for the occasion? Find out below.

Movie Review: The Hangover 2

In: Movies, Tommy D

It’s funny actually that I went to see this movie because the past week I kind of felt like Stu and Phil…waking up not really knowing what happened for a few minutes yeahhhhhhhhhh.

Anyway, The Hangover 2 is the sequel to (duh!) The Hangover which was one of the funniest movies I have seen in a long time. The sequel however, is not so funny which is really unfortunate because it kind of had the makings of being a hit. I think what the major problem was is that expectations were really high. Also for me personally, a sequel isn’t just a second movie using the exact same plot points, but it should move the story onward, right? I mean the best sequels aren’t just another of the same movie…all you have to do is listen to Randy from Scream to understand exactly what I’m talking about.

So here’s the basic plot without giving anything away. Stu (Ed Helms) is getting married, and everyone goes to Thailand for his wedding. At first Alan (Zach Galifianakas) is not invited mainly because of the chaos he caused last time. Eventually Stu, Phil (Bradley Cooper) and Doug (Justin Bartha) all  go to Alan’s and invite him. They all go to thailand, spend a night at the beach and UH OH the original three wakeup in Bangkok and don’t know what happened!
