Lee Daniels’ The Butler

I was born two decades after Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. I was born a biracial female: Black and Mexican. In preschool one of my best friends was Latina and my other best friend was half Asian-American and half White. My first boyfriend was Armenian. I have never known a world in which I […]

Olympus Has Fallen = A Must See

I’m not sure what rock I was successfully living under during the month of March but somehow Olympus Has Fallen┬ácompletely snuck past my radar. It was not until I was catching up on some of the shows recorded on my DVR that I saw a preview for this film. What I saw was so riveting […]

Red Widow: The Next ABC “It” Show?

So I admit, I don’t watch ABC’s drama packed shows, Revenge or Scandal. But from what I can gather through sneak peeks, previews, and just the word on the street ;-), Red Widow seems like it could quite possibly become this network’s next must watch show. Red Widow‘s premiere last Sunday (3/3) has me excited […]
