I fell in love with Guillermo del Toro’s work with his 2006 feature film Pan’s Labyrinth. It had all the layers that I, as a slightly dark and twisted individual, gravitate towards. It balanced my love of fairy tales, fantasy, magic and creepy shit into a film that made my heart flutter.
What would you do if every day since you were 18-years-old you woke up as a different person? That in the span of the time from when you fall asleep to when you wake up your sex, age, and race can change dramatically.
If you grew up in the 90’s it is hard not know the lyrics to hits like Baby… One More Time, “Sometimes”, “Crazy” and “Oops, I Did it Again!” There was just something about late 90’s early – 2000’s music that basically drafted you into a ‘forever cult’ of music lovers.
I recently went to Britney’s show Piece of Me while I was in Vegas. It was a fun experience but Britney has never been someone who I considered a master of vocal range. She was never a Mariah, a Christina, or an Adele. She was Britney. Britney with the catchy beat.
The lights flickered in the backroom.
I wasn’t sure if we were on the verge of a blackout or an invasion. Not like that mattered now. I returned to my room and retrieved the Colt .45 on my dresser. My dad said the .45 was a weird choice for someone like me. He expected me to get one of the new fancy ‘death rays’ that had come out last year. As much as I loved technology I didn’t trust it to protect me. My .45 was not the biggest shot but it had saved me a few dozen times. It ain’t broke.
Yesterday, the new trailer for the (3rd?) Ring franchise dropped. Absent are Naomi Watts and David Dorfman who probably signed a joint statement of “nah” when approached for another film.
Bless you both. Continue reading Kill “The Ring”
It is hard not to be shocked by a film about Nazis. The shocking part is that I end up believing the Nazis on-screen more than the leading character.
After spending our Friday afternoon at the theatre we decided to do our first podcast review, starting with the new film: Kubo and the Two Strings.
We also delved into late review/vent-fest of Batman V. Superman and talked about the difference between acting and voice acting.
Hope you enjoy!

The magic has weakened. The circle the three spell-casters created to contain demons as the hunters were crumbling. In a few moments, the demons will break free. They could feel the strain of their magic like acid burning through flesh. They pushed to keep the circle.
Bethesda Games Studios’ marketing executive Peter Hines, recently gave an interview regarding Elder Scrolls coming to the big screen. He basically said that the studio isn’t interested in making movies right now but if Peter Jackson showed up they might say yes.
When I read that all I could think was : Yes. This is good. This is very good! I basically sounded like some cliché science fiction scientist about to scream “It is ALIVE!” Because Peter Jackson could do Elder Scrolls justice.
One of the big things we pride ourselves in at Tea & Fiction is our mutual obsession with all things “super hero-ey”.
It also helps that said super hero-ey stuff takes place in the city you’re from. Continue reading TEA & REVIEW: Heroine Complex
