Experimenter takes us inside the whirring mind of famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram who conducted a series of radical experiments in the 1960s to test human’s willingness to obey authority. Peter Sarsgaard steps in to play Milgram, while Winona Ryder plays his wife.

Experimenter Movie Synopsis

Yale University, 1961. Stanley Milgram (Peter Sarsgaard) designs a psychology experiment that still resonates to this day, in which people think they’re delivering painful electric shocks to an affable stranger (Jim Gaffigan) strapped into a chair in another room. Despite his pleads for mercy, the majority of subjects don’t stop the experiment, administering what they think is a near-fatal electric shock, simply because they’ve been told to do so. With Nazi Adolf Eichmann’s trial airing in living rooms across America, Milgram strikes a nerve in popular culture and the scientific community with his exploration into people’s tendency to comply with authority. Celebrated in some circles, he is also accused of being a deceptive, manipulative monster, but his wife Sasha (Winona Ryder) stands by him through it all.

Rounding out the cast are Taryn Manning, Kellan Lutz, John Leguizamo, Jim Gaffigan, Anthony Edwards, Lori Singer and Anton Yelchin. The Michael Almereyda-directed film opens in theaters October 16. Check out the trailer below.

With the 2015 MTV VMAs airing on Sunday night, many artists seized the moment to debut music videos. Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas all premiered new clips. Justin Bieber joined in on the action by dropping the accompanying visual for his well-received new single “What Do You Mean?

Given that the Poo Bear and Skrillex co-production has a tropical house sound, I was expecting the music video would be a sunny lighthearted affair. Boy, was I wrong.

Instead, the Brad Furman-directed clip features The Biebs concocting an elaborate prank that involves John Leguizamo abducting his on-screen love interest played by model Xenia Deli. After being bound and gagged, his girlfriend finds herself at a surprise underground skateboarder rave. Now that’s romance 😉 Check out the random music video below.

With Tina Fey and Amy Poehler hosting the Golden Globes the past three years, it hardly feels like seven years since they starred in Baby Mama. But it has. The two Saturday Night Live alums reunite on the silver screen for the upcoming comedy Sisters.

They play estranged sisters who come together after being summoned by their parents. Turns out, their childhood home has been sold. While cleaning out their bedrooms, they come up with the brilliant idea to throw one last rager and invite their former classmates with the exception of Maya Rudolph.

Ike Barinholtz, John Leguizamo, Dianne Wiest, John Cena and James Brolin round out the cast. Sisters rages into theaters on December 18, 2015. The movie is rated R for “crude sexual content.” Once you watch the full trailer, you’ll see why. Poor music box never saw it coming 😉

Who doesn’t love a good pot-themed comedy? Dazed & Confused and Pineapple Express quickly come to mind as two of the best. Hoping to follow their success at the box office and stoner households around the world is Jesse Eisenberg’s new film, American Ultra. Mark Zuckerberg, definitely he is not, in this action comedy.

Eisenberg plays a stoner in a small town who finds his life disrupted when his past comes to haunt him. Apparently, at one time he was a trained assassin. Check out the official synopsis below.

Movie Synopsis

An action comedy about Mike (Eisenberg), a seemingly hapless and unmotivated stoner whose small-town life with his live-in girlfriend, Phoebe (Kristen Stewart), is suddenly turned upside down. Unbeknownst to him, Mike is actually a highly trained, lethal sleeper agent. In the blink of an eye, as his secret past comes back to haunt him, Mike is thrust into the middle of a deadly government operation and is forced to summon his inner action-hero in order to survive.

American Ultra re-teams Eisenberg and Stewart for the first time in five years. They previously starred in Greg Mottola’s Adventureland. Joining them in the film are Topher Grace, Connie Britton, Bill Pullman and John Leguizamo.

The film smokes up at theaters on August 21. Check out the entertaining red band trailer below.

Latino actor and Emmy award winner John Leguizamo is the latest star to join the Human Rights Campaign’s “Americans for Marriage Equality” educational campaign. HRC President Joe Solmonese says that John has been a “trailblazer for Latino actors, and his voice will be equally influential nationally for marriage equality.” In the video, John declares the following:

“Loving, committed couples should be able to marry the person they love and protect their families. And nothing is more important than family. And nothing says family like marriage…So please join me and the majority of Americans who support marriage equality.”

According to a few nonpartisan polls, approximately 53% of Americans support same-sex marriages. And according to the Pew Research center, support has increased by 20 points since 1996. John’s video is the fourth to be released for the newest campaign and is the first in the Latinos for Marriage Equality series.

The HRC plan on continuing to roll out targeted videos to expand and approach a vast majority of the American population. The series are to include Republicans for Marriage Equality, African-Americans for Marriage Equality, Latinos for Marriage Equality and Elected Officials for Marriage Equality. Check out John’s video below.

Top Gay-Themed Movies: Comedy

In: Kevin, Movies, Totally GAY!

There are a few stereotypical things that every gay man should know about. These things include certain musical artists such as Barbara Streisand and Bette Midler, how to mix a fantastic cocktail, and a number of movies that should be part of every homo’s “I’ve-seen-that” repertoire. Whether you’re gay or straight, if you haven’t seen any or all of the movies on this list, you’re missing out on something great.

Originally this post started as a collection of my top 5 gay-themed movie recommendations and my top 5 recommendations for non-gay movie essentials. Unfortunately, I couldn’t keep either list to just 5… and after reaching over 1,000 words not even 1/2 way through, I decided to break it up into three articles: Top Gay-Themed Comedies, Top Gay-Themed Dramas and Top Non-Gay Movie Essentials. So… let’s start with the comedies- listed in no particular order, click the title to watch the trailer!
