The Imitation Game Review

I’m a sucker for a tragic genius period film with an Oscar-worthy lead, and it’s a good thing, because there seems to be a proliferation of them lately. But the abundance in the genre takes nothing away from The Imitation Game’s dramatization of the life of the brilliant Alan Turing, whose efforts and intellect played…

Hello Kitty Suite Mirror

Hello Kitty Crazy: Too Sweet Suite?

Why was I surprised to learn that they held an international “Hello Kitty Con” in Los Angeles? After all, they have a con for just about everything else. And while I’m not a particular fan of the iconic character, I have to give kudos to Korea Town’s Line Hotel for jumping in with both paws…

The Hunger Games Mocking Jay Review

Fans of the franchise, give a sigh of relief and a squeal of anticipation — you will not be disappointed!

Gramovox: For the Music Lover Who Has Everything

Here’s one unique gift that I can almost guarantee the music lover in your life does not already own: the Gramovox, a bluetooth gramophone that allows you to listen to any type of music with vintage sound inspired by 1920s horn speakers.

The Theory of Everything Review

It’s impossible for anyone not to love some aspect of The Theory of Everything, a beautiful and tender film about Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne) in his formative years as one of the greatest intellectuals of our time, and his relationship with his first wife, Jane Wilde (Felicity Jones). It’s a biopic, it’s a love story, it’s…

Horrible-Bosses-2

Review: Horrible Bosses 2

Stop at the title. It ain’t called “horrible” for nothing. I was willing to give this charmless sequel a chance, because I found the original Horrible Bosses somewhat amusing, and because I generally love anything Christoph Waltz does. But I’m afraid that he, and everyone else in the film, let us down. Horrible Bosses 2 is cringingly…

Lady Gaga Buys Malibu Mansion with Bat Cave

A unique property for a unique lady. And although the Bat Cave part of the property is quite extraordinary, it’s hardly the estate’s most impressive feature. This is a one-of-a-kind, 6-acre property overlooking Zuma Beach in Malibu, with a 10,270-square-foot designer mansion containing top-of-the-line everything, and extensive and luxurious equestrian facilities, not to mention some of the best…
