DRACULA UNTOLD Movie Review

DRACULA UNTOLD Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer Luke Evans puts sexual energy and masculinity into the legend. It’s dark, moody and I’m ready for the sequel. Finally, we have returned to the vampire as a man not some woozy man-child with a dream. Albeit, the first Dracula, according to this version, has been grossly […]

KILL THE MESSENGER Movie Review

GONE GIRL Movie Review

GONE GIRL Movie Review

By Victoria Alexander, Film Critic Las Vegas Informer I’m not a fiction reader – I’m “reading” Max Tegmark’s Our Mathematical Universe: My Quest for the Ultimate Nature of Reality (it’s not a beach read) – but the hosannas for Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl were hard to ignore. I read it. Gone Girl is a brilliantly […]

Movie Review – Cloudburst

by William Eamon Workman I love hearing the stories of old LGBT couples because they tell us how far we’ve come and give us the inspiration to keep going.  That’s why I jumped at the chance to watch Cloudburst on Netflix.  It turned out not only to be a great comedy but also one of […]

Movie Review – House of Boys

By William Eamon Workman Since the last two movies I reviewed focused on lesbians I decided to do this movie review on House of Boys which centers around gay teens.  It promised to focus on a young runaway who is hired as a dancer for a gay club so I was really looking forward to […]

Movie Review – But I’m A Cheerleader

By William Eamon Workman I first saw But I’m a Cheerleader while sitting tensely in an older girl’s room at the age of eighteen.  Despite my awkwardness, the hilarity of the movie soon drew me in and carried me away.  Since then I have watched it twice more and each time I laugh, I cry, […]

Movie Review – Blue is the Warmest Color

By William Eamon Workman Since my first introduction to this film was actually a negative response video on YouTube, I was understandably apprehensive about watching Blue is the Warmest Color.  However, my morbid curiousity got the better of me and I’m glad it did because I love this movie. Interestingly enough the original writer, Julie […]
