2018 Golden Globes Red Carpet

Normally, I start this post as soon as the awards show ends, but I knew that this year was going to take a little bit longer. In fact, I cleared the entire rest of my night to write this post because I wanted to take extra care of it. I also didn’t want to fuck this up. Before we get into what everyone wore, I want to say how difficult it is to write this post. Everyone. EVERYONE was extremely beautiful and elegant and this year, it wasn’t about the gowns at all because the color black symbolized something more. It was a movement of women who stood together supporting each other against sexual harassment, sexual assault, gender inequality, unequal pay for women, and so much more. Why is this list even as long as it is? It’s frustrating, isn’t it? We’re also not focusing on significant others and dates to the awards show because this year many actresses chose to bring along with them activists and strong women in this world who are leading these efforts everywhere.

This time around, we’re going to do things a little bit differently. What will stay the same – the photos and the designer. But I’m keeping my critiques to myself because I just don’t think that on a night like this and an award show as amazing as this one was this evening, that we need any more criticism towards women and how they are dressed. And maybe we’ll choose to continue to do it this way from now on.

What I’m really excited to focus on in this post is how these stylists and actresses rose up to the challenge of wearing these black gowns and making it their own. They added pops of color, accessorized, and emphasized their hair and makeup instead of letting the gowns speak entirely for them. Except in a way, they did – powerfully. It will be hard to select my favorites, which I’ll share on my Instagram Stories later on this evening.

And while this evening was moving and inspiring, it’s a reminder to me that there’s still a lot of work to do. That there are men in that audience that are not supporters and instead abusers that have not been called out yet. That while we shifted the focus on the red carpet to not ask about who they were wearing, reporters were not asking enough men about what they were going to do to support the #TimesUp movement or how they felt about it. Very few wore anything, but black on the red carpet, but is this the same “fall-in-line” culture just repeating itself again? Also, wearing a uniform black dress doesn’t solve the problem(s). In high school, these sort of things were just called spirit days. (sorry was that harsh)

There’s a lot to unpack probably in the coming months, but we don’t gotta do that tonight…

True Story

This is the first time I’m ever seeing this trailer or hearing anything about this film and when I first saw that screenshot, I really had no idea what would be ahead. This feels like a different film entirely for James Franco and Jonah Hill and I’m a little bit excited about it.

Palo Alto

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RF4C124ibQ]

I am so excited that the trailer for this movie was released because after watching it last night, I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. Palo Alto is the directorial debut of Gia Coppola – niece of Sofia Coppola and stars Emma Roberts and James Franco. The film is based on a collection of short stories about suburban teens penned by James Franco. The film is hitting some major film festivals in the next coming weeks, but we hope we have a chance to watch it in the US as well. I love the atmosphere that has been created for it and of course – talent runs in the family so we have high hopes for Gia!

Spring Breakers: A Review

“What exactly did I just watch?” was the question that I had for myself leaving the movie theater. I don’t know what I was thinking, but I thought Spring Breakers would have some aspects of comedy in it. It was not funny at all though. I guess that was just silliness on my part though – the move was directed by Harmony Korine after all. Now, I never saw “Kids,” but I certainly know enough about it to know that Selena Gomez wasn’t going to resemble anything like her Disney Channel characters. The movie was pretty indie and mesmerizing in an intoxicating dazed kind of a way. I was drawn to the neon lights and the style of filming, but there were times when I started to feel dizzy. That also could have been from my medication or my appetite though.

Here are some takeaways:

  • Yes, this movie was definitely a stretch for Selena, but out of all the characters she is most like a Disney Channel character. Selena plays “Faith” a goody-goody who has a love for God and clearly does not fit in with her friends that well. Those other girls are nutz. At the same time though, I could identify with “Faith” as I’m sure many girls can – that feeling of being an outcast and wanting to fit in and speaking up at uncomfortable times. 
  • James Franco, I can never look at you the same again.
  • What was the plot again?
  • Was all of that nudity necessary? Something tells me no.
  • Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens are badass in the film, but this could never be real life and in the end I guess that’s why we just call it a movie right?
  • The score was amazing and probably one of my favorite parts about the movie.
  • For some reason, I saw some similarities between Spring Breakers and Magic Mike – anyone else feel the same?

Readers, if you’ve seen Spring Breakers, what were your thoughts?

The trailer for the dark film “Spring Breakers” starring James Franco, Vanessa Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and Ashley Benson has just been released. Kind of interesting to see them all doing a project unlike anything they’ve done before.

Would you see it?

I think I would just out of curiosity…also how ridiculous does James Franco look?
