Here are some of the op-eds and interviews I read this week!
Month: June 2015
Brie Eley is hoping to shake things up in Hollywood with the rom-com short Blind Date Rules. The film’s trailer has already been a part of COLOR’s semi-weekly trailers/posters/promos round-up, and I’m happy to say that I’m back with the first of a round of interviews from the folks behind the short film.
In this interview, I talk with co-writer/actor Brie Eley, who discusses how the film came to be, the serendipitous way the film came together, and Hollywood’s issues with non-diverse rom-coms. You can watch the trailer within this post or at the film’s Facebook page and Marele Entertainment’s website.
All right, True Believers! Some of you may vehemently disagree with this…and a lot of you won’t, especially if you did some of the fandom digging I’ve done, and ESPECIALLY especially if you’ve watched Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier.

One of the stories I’d been monitoring this week was one involving Tahera Ahmad, Director of Interfaith Engagement and Associate University Chaplain at Northwestern University, and her horrible experience while flying Shuttle America, one of the smaller airline companies partnered with United Airlines. In case you haven’t heard about the ordeal, here’s a quick rundown.
There’s more new Fake Off this week!
Since the release and subsequent failure of Aloha, many people have been making known their grievances with the film, as well as some of the discussion itself.
Halle Berry has a lot of accolades to her name: beloved actress, Academy Award winner, hard-working mother. But she has also added sci-fi heroine to her repertoire.
This news was issued a while ago, May 21, to be exact, but I’m just now getting around to it. Forgive me, but stuff was poppin’ for a time. Now that I’m back on my Sleepy Hollow grind, let’s take a look at what new things might be on the way for Abbie and Ichabod and why it’s time for fans to believe that the show is finally back on track.
As I wrote yesterday, Caitlyn Jenner’s Vanity Fair cover took social media by storm and it’s shockwaves are still being felt. But, while there is much reason to celebrate, there’s also a fair amount of discussion that’s now taking place, a lot of which is necessary to pause, read, and take in.
Okay, casting and acquisition news! Let’s get to it.
