At the movies: Trainwreck.

Amy Schumer has made a great movie. And yes, Bridget Everett is along to spice things up, gloriously.

At the movies: Ant-Man.

Paul Rudd is Ant-Man. Peyton Reed does a good job, but we're all a little disappointed that we couldn't see the full-on Edgar Wright vision.

A Tribute to a dear friend.

The landscape of Nashville dance music culture changed irrevocably recently with Ron Slomowicz's move to Chicago. Having known him for what seems like an eternity (actually, since 1991), I talked to him for the Nashville Scene about his time here, the changing perception of the GLBT community, and landmarks devoured by progress. Take a look, if you will.

At the movies: The Gallows.

I talk a lot about movies. Often I write that way as well. So occasionally, I like to try and Dogme things up a bit, and use an exacting word count to try and distill my thoughts on a film to the bone. So for this particular film, my editor and I agreed on 100 words. What do you think?

At the movies: Saint Laurent.

The best movie in town currently is this. It has lots of sex, uncompromising nudity, drug use, cute dogs, hot guys, gorgeous women, amazing clothes, seductive music, and a heap of amazing acting. It's artsy, unafraid, and essential viewing.

Bianca Del Rio's Rolodex of Hate.

I had the opportunity to write about Bianca Del Rio's Rolodex of Hate tour before her Nashville appearance. It was everything you might expect- pure filth from beginning to end, and more than enough material to make you feel guilty as well as entertained. The T was spilled, and shots were given to the truly offended. If you enjoy RPDR, it's well worth your time for a glimpse behind the curtains.

At the movies: Insidious Chapter 3.

It's back.The little horror franchise that could keeps thwarting expectations (especially after that dumb shit in the second one), and I'll happily proclaim this chapter the best in the series. It's a prequel, which is fine, because the Lambert family's story is not quite as interesting as Elise Rainier and the Spectral Sightings boys. Truthfully, I'd like to see the series focusing on them, either theatrically or on one of those subscription-based networks that have yet to find the right kind of serialized horror (no offense to Hemlock Grove, whose first season is a fun mess and whose second season is actually good, like a real TV show).
