Hotel Artemis: Film Review

Hotel Artemis came out quite a while ago in America and it received mixed reviews, so I foolishly went in not expecting much from it and came away pleasantly surprised – it is intriguing and very entertaining.

Snowden: Film Review 

snowden-film-review

Edward Snowden, who exposed the illegal mass surveillance techniques used by the NSA on all US civilians in 2013, is a very interesting person with an incredible story to tell so it’s just a shame that the dramatisation about his life lacks a certain something and isn’t as powerful as the Laura Poitras‘ 2014 documentary Citizenfour.

Star Trek Beyond: Film Review

beyond1

The Star Trek movies are simply not my bag and I can’t help it – I haven’t seen any of the TV series and I don’t understand the cult appeal. Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness were good but not great (to me – I know I’m in the minority) and Star Trek Beyond is exactly the same – it’s fine, I like it enough and it’s a pleasant way to spend two hours, but I wouldn’t write home about it or watch it again.

Top Films for July

july1

A new month is here and once again, here are the films I’m most excited about seeing – sadly, nothing on the list is an original idea and it’s mainly sequels or reboots/adaptations. There are a number of obvious choices I have missed off the list for legit reasons, such as Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie (this was popular before my time), The Legend of Tarzan (I’ve seen it and I don’t recommend), Central Intelligence (it’s alright) and The Neon Demon (I don’t think I’ll like it).

Zachary Quinto confirms he’s dating Jonathon Grofff

Star Trek star Zachary Quinto has finally confirmed his relationship with Glee actor Jonathon Groff.

The pair have been seen together a number of times but nothing was ever official. In an interview with Out magazine, Quinto talks about his relationship saying, “I’m incredibly happy, I’m incredibly lucky”.

It is unknown how long the Heroes actor, 35, has been dating the Glee star (he plays recurring character Jesse St James).

He also admitted that he had trouble finding a partner because and ended up in therapy to help him work out his commitment problems.

“I found myself in a pattern of being attracted to people who were somehow unavailable, and what I realised was that I was protecting myself because I equated the idea of connection and love with trauma and death.”

He continued, “I had to do a lot of work on the couch to really get to a place where I was able to show up to a relationship with someone who was actually capable of being in one—and that took a lot of trial and error. And I’m still working on all that stuff—that will never stop.”

Well, I’m glad he has managed to sort himself out because Zachary and Jonathon look like a perfect match!

Celeb of the Week: Zachary Quinto

I have picked Zachary Quinto as my celeb of the week because he has finally come out as gay. He decided he needed to admit his sexuality after the suicide of Jamey Rodemeyer, who was bullied for being homosexual.

On his blog Zachary, best known for playing Spock in Star Trek, wrote; “In light of Jamey’s death, it became clear to me in an instant that living a gay life without publicly acknowledging it is simply not enough to make any significant contribution to the immense work that lies ahead on the road to complete equality.”

He wrote: “Jamey Rodemeyer’s life changed mine .And while his death only makes me wish that I had done this sooner, I am eternally grateful to him for being the catalyst for change within me. Now I can only hope to serve as the same catalyst for even one other person in this world.”

There had always been rumours surrounding the Heroes actor’s sexuality and he finally come out to New York Magazine recently. He then took to his blog to justify his decision. In the interview he said; “As a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done, and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”

I think this is amazing because Zachary isn’t just admitting his homosexuality for himself- he is doing it because it hopes it will bring change and help others- which is why he is my celeb of the week.
