Your Guide to the Virtual 2022 Tribeca Film Festival

The 21st annual Tribeca Film Festival kicked off this week in New York City and they've opted to continue an "at home" component. That's good news for those of us who don't live in the area or couldn't travel in to see some great independent films. There are more screenings for 2022 than last year that are only happening in-person, but Tribeca At Home will still allow you to watch over 100 movies and short films from anywhere in the United States. How to Attend Online There are four ways to buy passes for online screenings and the prices are the same as they were last for last year's Tribeca Film Festival. Tribeca At Home Shorts Pass: watch all of the festival's short films for $25. Tribeca At Home Awards Pass: watch any of the films that win awards at the end of the fe...

Hulu’s ‘Crush’ is a Charming Queer Rom-Com (Review)

Hulu's 'Crush' is part of a growing batch of films and television series that focus on young queer people finding love. Following Netflix's 'Heartstopper' series, which is one of the most charming love stories in recent years of any orientation, this heartfelt and comic debut feature from director Sammi Cohen follows a young artist named Paige (Rowan Blanchard) who would do anything to get close to the girl she has a crush on at school. Rowan Blanchard and Auli'i Cravalho star in 'Crush' (Photo by: Hulu) For Paige, being gay has just been a fact of life. She's been out at school for years and has an overly supportive mother (Megan Mullally) who tries to show her how much of a cool mom she is by gifting her vibrators and dental dams. The target of her affection is Gabriela (I...

Catch Up With ‘Flee’ Before the Academy Awards (Review)

Danish drama 'Flee' is one of the most unique nominees at this year's Academy Awards. It earned a nomination for Best International Feature Film, but also made history for its inclusion in the categories for Best Animated Feature and Best Documentary Feature. The film, which world premiered at Sundance last year, introduces us to a man in Denmark who finally breaks his silence on being a child refugee. Director Jonas Poher Rasmussen tells the intensely personal story of one his best friends from high school. We're introduced to him as Amin Nawabi, but that's a pseudonym. Combined with the animation, it allows Amin to tell his story, but remain protected. Born in Kabul, Amin's family was torn apart after their father was arrested and the country was torn apart by war.

Hulu Premieres Outrageous New Comedy “Vacation Friends” (Review)

As distribution models continue to shift thanks to COVID, we are continuing to see major studio releases get shifted over to premiere online. That has been the case with Clay Tarver's outrageously raucous new film "Vacation Friends" as it shifted to Hulu where it premieres today. It's safe to assume that most people have met others while they were traveling who made the trip more enjoyable, but just because you connect away from home doesn't mean that they would become your close friends in the "real world." Lil Rel Howery ("Get Out") and Yvonne Orji ("Insecure") star as Marcus and Emily, a straightlaced couple from Chicago who head to Mexico for a five star getaway. Things go awry from the moment they arrive when a planned wedding proposal from Marcus is ruined by their guest ...

Questlove Takes Us Back to the “Summer Of Soul” (Review)

Winner of the U.S. Documentary Competition's Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award at this year's Sundance Film Festival, "Summer of Soul (…Or, When the Revolution Could Not Be Televised)" is the filmmaking debut from Roots drummer extraordinaire Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and one of the year's most exhilarating films. https://youtu.be/k99XO-UE5AQ In the summer of 1969, over 400,000 attended the Woodstock festival in New York State. That event is well documented in every respect, with a legendary film, album releases, and books to dissect every aspect of the cultural revolution. But that same summer, a series of music concerts were held in Mount Morris Park in Harlem, New York, that became known as "Black Woodstock." The Harlem Cultural Festival occurred every Sunday from late J...

Fyre Festival Attendees Set To Win Thousands As Part Of A Class Action Suit

The infamous Fyre Festival was to take place over two weekends in the spring of 2017 and was promoted as a high-end affair. Those who did make it to the island destination, found it to be an experience they'd surely rather forget. According to NPR, nearly 300 people could be looking at $7,000+ payouts as part of a recent ruling. Another hearing is set for mid-May and the results will determine whether the compensation goes through and exactly how much these folks will receive. The festival was founded by Fyre Media CEO Billy McFarland and rapper Ja Rule, the event was meant to promote a new music booking app. The deep lineup was set to include everyone from Blink 182 to Tyga to Major Lazer. The initial buzz around the event took the internet by storm and organizers hired a number ...
