As I wrote today on my website regarding using a fake men's name to apply for freelance journalism jobs: "In the recent months, I used a man’s name applying to the same places I once asked for work under my real female name. Shocker! People were more respectful to me as the male alias...My experiment proves sexism is alive and well. The #metoo movement camouflages it, but it exists and shall exist well beyond my lifetime. Because I apply under a female name, I am undeserving of employment."
Voiceover actress Cristina Milizia has acted in work for Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, Netflix, and Disney. Topics covered in the interview: marketing herself as a bilingual actress, lots of tips for newbie voiceover actors, wearing "silent" clothes in the recording studio, and developing a range of character voices.
The film franchise gets a new twist becoming a "girly" movie, a response to criticism towards the original movies. I talk about how different the movie is, which moviegoers will like it, what I expect for future "Transformers," and at the end, decide to reveal my heart's desire to make an animated "Transformers" series that takes things as seriously as a live action film might. If I haven't died by the time you hear this episode in another century, never getting the chance to do so.
Lava! That chicken! Bad guys! I talk about this movie's quirks after my second and final day of vocal exhaustion, also known as recording German lines for the German edition of my cartoon, O Girl of a Dream.
After his father's death, a young man, Walt (Andrew J. West), moves to his dad's hometown in order to learn more about who his father was. Walt decides to stay with his awkward aunt and her family, whose denial makes his search nearly impossible. He accepts a job in a local antique mall where his boss quickly offers him the possibility of a management position; however, a mean-spirited co-worker isn't pleased by his new competition and proceeds to sabotage any chance Walt has. Walt then meets Ellie (Ashley Greene), an eccentric and crude free-spirit who still manages to be irresistibly charming. He finds himself completely enamored, though both are hesitant to pursue a relationship. Walt ends up not only finding out who his father really was, but learns more about himself than he ever thought possible. Starring Andrew J. West, Michaela Watkins, Michael Gladis, with Ashley Greene and Mary Steenburgen, with music by Jesse Ingalls and Jason Mozersky of Relentless7.
Sher Bautista and William Jones produced the Filipino film about Delia, an ill-tempered former actress, has to find family to leave her equally difficult husband with before she dies, forcing themselves back into the lives of people they've hurt, estranged and antagonized.
A number of people I meet watch this movie with, well, their eyes and minds wide shut. I try my best to remember each of the major themes I saw for you friends out there. Eyes Wide Shut is viewed as Stanley Kubrick’s most mysterious film.
Stanley Kubrick’s horror classic wasn’t always well received. We dip into this and more on my first Stanley Kubrick themed episode. Note: When I discuss Stephen King's distaste for the film having seen Ready Player One, I thought in the film they meant it in passing as opposed to a grand hatred of the film as it really is!
I love, love, love, love, love Rey so much. My story of falling in love with Star Wars began because I thought Luke Skywalker was hot, believe it or not, and now I love the series overall like an old opera.
