This week, a new episode of Homorazzi aired on OUTtv (Episode 9 to be exact) and in case you missed it, we’ve got the full episode for you to check out below. Since Nic (one of our usual panelists) was away vacationing in Hawaii (stay tuned for coverage on that), Blue from OUTtv join in as a special guest!
As usual, the panel started off by tackling some of the latest Gossip and the most heated discussion took place on the topic of Rihanna & Chris Brown seemingly back in a relationship. The conversation then transitioned to Britney Spears & will.i.am‘s new “Scream & Shout” music video as well as comments on how she’s been doing on The X-Factor as a judge. Also discussed was Tegan & Sara‘s new “Closer” music video and we’d like to clarify that the Canadian indie rock duo are indeed both lesbians and twin sisters (despite some of the confusion discussed in the episode below – LOL).
In closing, they talk about the recent viral YouTube videos that started with “Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends,” and a new gay British series worth checking out. Check out the episode below!
Another day, another Oscar precursor. This time it’s the American Film Institute’s turn. Unlike the previous awards, the AFI doesn’t pick one winner. Rather the group of critics, scholars, film artists and those in television pick the Top 10 in both cinema and on the small screen. All ten winners in each respective category will be honored at an invitation-only luncheon on Friday, January 11, 2013 in Los Angeles.
In the film category, you have your core group of movies dominating early critics awards. Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln and Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty once again are honored. Joining the Oscar Best Picture race is Christopher Nolan’s final Batman film The Dark Knight Rises. I believe it’s the first nod the superhero flick has earned at a major Academy Awards precursor.
The biggest snub, IMHO, is Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master. The Joaquin Phoenix and Phillip Seymour Hoffman film recently nabbed Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress from the Los Angeles Film Critics. Sadly for them, the film was ignored by the AFI. Check out what else made the AFI’s list of Best 10 films of 2012, along with the cream of the crop on television.
Even though a few shows have premiered already, the official start to the 2012-2013 television season doesn’t start for a couple of weeks. I love this time of year. It’s the perfect time to relax and unwind after a hectic summer partying schedule. What better way to do so then to sit on your couch and check out all the network’s new and returning shows. That’s what we plan on doing. Check out Patrick, Tyrell, our newest writer Matt and my Top 5 list of favorite returning shows this Fall.
When I asked the other three writers for their respective lists, I had no idea there would be so much crossover. To mix things up, I decided to take on a different approach for my picks. Continue reading to discover the criteria I used for my selection process.
So, we’ve had Night of the Living Dead, 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, Dawn of the Dead, and Shawn of the Dead to name a few zombie movies. Now, we’re getting a new zombie TV series called “The Walking Dead”. The premise? It’s no different than the aforementioned movies: “Police officer Rick Grimes leads a group of survivors in a world overrun by zombies.”
It’s based on Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel and executive produced by Frank Darabont (“The Shawshank Redemption”). Andrew Lincoln (“Love Actually”) plays the lead actor, Rick Grimes. So far, six episodes have been filmed, but based on the trailer and the storyline, it’s hard to see how a whole season will be made out of it (before it becomes a zombie itself), considering several movies have accomplished the same thing in a matter of a couple hours.
That being said, the clip you’re about to see got rave reviews at Comic Con so who knows. The show premieres (fittingly) on October 31st, Halloween.
