Let’s talk about lesbians! I love lesbians. I know that there’s this weird unspoken understanding that for some reason gays and lesbians don’t always mix well. Something about gays liking girly girls who like men and lesbians not feeling the flaming queens…but you know what? I say get over it, people!
We’re all gay and we should work together to educate the rest of the world.
So I’ve been watching Showtime’s “The Real L Word,” a reality spin-off of its popular lesbian drama “The L Word.” I absolutely LOVED the L Word. It’s by far one of my favorite shows of all time. I like how it’s written, the way it’s shot, the acting, the weird unknown music, the insight to lesbian culture, and the characters are so solid. I love it!
Well, I wasn’t so sure how I’d feel about a reality spin-off of the show. I mean, I love The Hills and other reality shows, but I wasn’t sure how this was going to work, exactly. Specially when originally the spin-off would be a drama about one of the main characters: Alice. Well, either way, I’m actually really enjoying The Real L Word. It’s a completely different show with a different feel, mainly because it’s unscripted.
At first I was trying to pinpoint who’s who in the show, then I realized that it’s not like The L Word, these women have their own personalities. I see fusions of different L Word characters in some of the women. They’re all cool and I like all the main gals. Plus, it’s so cool that they shoot in a lot of the places where I’ve been or hang out. It’s set in LA and you see places where I have had my own memories or drama or whatever (ahem, THE ABBEY).
So I give The Real L Word a thumbs up. It’s not like The L Word, so L Word fans, please don’t turn on me. It’s a separate idea and different tone to the flow of the show, but it’s cool. So watch!
Yesterday I finally got a chance to watch Inception. I have been wanting to watch this movie for a while. I was fascinated by the previews of the movie in the trailers and, actually, right after watching the first trailer my immediate thought was, “Damn, why wasn’t I cast in this movie?!” lol It just looks so cool! Visually stunning and such an intriguing idea.
I thought Leonardo DiCaprio did a great job as the leading man. I believed him. I was very pleased with the casting. To my surprise, Ellen Page wasn’t awkward or goofy or quirky at all. I thought her performance showed versatility and I think that’ll work in her favor. Plus, she’s super-cute! (Am I right, lesbians?) Yeah, for some reason the lesbians LOVE Ellen Page.
I thought the idea of dream layers were very cool and I found the action scenes to be quite suspenseful. I felt the acting was great and the directing was also great. There was a certain elegance to the photography. I just thought it was beautiful in all it’s weirdness. After hearing feedback from a few people, I was concerned I might feel confused after watching the movie, but it wasn’t very confusing at all. Everything made sense and I liked the ending. I felt like the director was flirting with me. lol
If you haven’t seen it already, you should check it out. One of the best movies I’ve watched this year.
