Known for making headlines with his brash and often offensive remarks about others, United States Presidential candidate Donald Trump has now weighed in on a topic we haven't heard him talk about before: skin care.
Allegiant Part I is a good action adventure film about a post apocalyptic world which is divided into five factions based on virtues, but enough alre...
There is no bigger night on the Hollywood calendar than the Academy Awards where stars shine at their best. This is the most prestigious award in the film industry where no red carpet enjoys such scrutiny and no event attracts a guest list so star studded.
Ginger Rogers didn't toe the line. She danced to her own tune to advance women in Hollywood for generations to come. Her message is on point today. What should women in Hollywood do to earn respect and equal pay and roles?

When a romantic relationship is on the rocks or breaks up altogether, who has your back? Friends. So whether currently unattached or coupled-up, skip the typical hoopla of Valentine's Day to wrangle best buds and reclaim the weekend for endless platonic love.
Joy is a visionary Joy is active. Joy creates her future, and by doing so gives permission for other like-minded women to live their own dreams. Just because she's mopping floors doesn't make her a damsel in distress.
Inspired by a stellar review in the New Yorker of David O. Russell's new movie, "Joy," I headed out for the theater.

My kind of flick.

A kinder, gentler and mostly out of sight Ricky Gervais held forth at this year's Golden Globe Awards on NBC with a bunch of surprise winners along with the expectations of lots of pundits. It moved relatively swiftly, especially towards the end when it ran overtime, but as entertainment it was mostly so-so.
My friend decided that she wanted to try me. Cue the Dej Loaf music. And I'm not talking about the regular try me, where she drags me to the mall ...
It's a great story: Joy took a risk, faced some obstacles, never gave up, and eventually succeeded. For a movie, however, it seems somewhat thin. Dramatic license would need to be taken. Additional obstacles would have to be created.
As I reflect on the year behind and the year to come, the greatest lesson I've learned and I want to impart is the need to control our own narrative across all facets of our digitally connected lives both in our fiction and IRL (in real life).
Joy lags until Bradley Cooper enters and sparks fly between him and Jennifer Lawrence, then they fizzle and the film snores on.
