After reading David Yost’s guest column in the Hollywood Reporter last month, I knew I had to ask a question that meant a lot to me: how are things now compared to then when it comes to being LGBTQ in Hollywood. It’s important to me because I’m a transgender woman and working to develop my own sitcom pilot (based in Chicago, of course) with a transgender lead. I asked Yost as to whether it was…"C2E2 Power Rangers Panel: David Yost on Being LGBTQ Then and Now"

In the closing hours of C2E2, Lee did a surprise signing at the Marvel…"C2E2: Stan Lee makes his Final Appearance"

Our childhood comes back to the big screen with the live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast. The retelling stays true to the animated classic but fills in the plot holes that they were unable to do with the animated film. If it were up to me, Beauty and the Beast would also get a Best Picture nomination. Directed by Bill Condon from a screenplay written by Stephen Chbosky and Evan Spiliotopoulos, the star-studded cast…"Beauty and the Beast: Disney Does It Again"
Kong: Skull Island takes us back to the Vietnam War era to reboot everyone’s favorite gigantic primate. It may not match the original classic but the fast-paced story holds its own. Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) from a screenplay written by Dan Gilroy and Max Borenstein and Derek Connolly with the story by John Gatins, it’s not a movie that makes us wait a while for King Kong in the same way…"Kong: Skull Island reboots King Kong in great fashion"
It’s one last time for Hugh Jackman as Logan’s story comes to an end in Logan, the newest installment of the X-Men franchise. Inspired by Old Man Logan, this film is very grounded and it’s not the typical superhero action film. It’s a powerful film and one really doesn’t need to see the prior films going into it as it’s a standalone pic in which one really doesn’t need to have seen the previous X-Men…"Logan: One Last Time for Wolverine"
