Dear Gossips,

Leading up to Christmas, the predominant headline about Little Women was that they were having a hard time getting men to come to the screenings which may have been why the film was largely ignored by the Golden Globes and the Screen Actors Guild.  Read Full Intro

Five years after the apogee of zombies in pop culture, Little Monsters arrives from Australia, a zombie comedy (zom-com) with little in the way of either zombies or comedy. Lupita Nyong’o does what she can with her natural luminous presence, but she cannot rescue an entire movie from the doldrums solely on the power of her ukulele cover of “Shake It Off” Full Story

You're so damn electro-cute  You know you got that juice  You know you got that juice  You know you got that juice  Now, squeeze all that passionfruit  Ain't no one fresher than you  Those are the opening lyrics to Janelle Monae’s song “I Got the Juice”. Full Story

Lupita & Janelle?!

Lupita Nyong'o and Janelle Monáe set Twitter ablaze following the Met Gala and it was for more than their fire outfits. People, and possibly me, are convinced there could be a romance brewing between them, especially since there are rumours that Janelle and her frequent professional and personal partner, Tessa Thompson, have broken up. Full Story

In the past couple of years stylists have finally been getting their due, and some, like Law Roach, are approaching pop culture figure status on their own. It’s absolutely time for people to acknowledge the work of stylists and for them to be stars in their own right, kind of like how showrunners suddenly became public figures about a dozen years ago. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Jordan Peele’s Us exceeded box office projections this weekend, opening with $70.3 million and setting several records, proving that Get Out wasn’t a fluke (not that anyone thought it would be) and establishing him as an event filmmaker, the kind of storyteller who can deliver a commercial hit and make you think at the same time.  Read Full Intro

Jordan Peele keeps it simple with Us

After a stunning debut like Get Out, anything less than equal success is bound to seem like a disappointment. Such is the case for Jordan Peele’s sophomore feature film, Us. Is it bad? Emphatically NO. But it’s not as deep or thematically grounded as Get Out, which is bound to feel like a disappointment to anyone looking for similar themes. Full Story

I am probably going to see Jordan Peele’s Us this weekend. Not happy about this. Us is getting strong reviews. Get Out was not a fluke. So it’s not like I’m going to walk out of there all like, what a sh-t movie. I will probably walk out with sh-t in my pants though because scary movies are not my thing. Full Story

I really think there needs to be a three-month moratorium on Oscar talk following the Academy Awards, but life is inherently unfair so here we are, just a few weeks after the Oscars, already talking about next year’s Oscars. The subject? Jordan Peele’s Us. Just the trailer Full Story

When Jordan Peele introduced Lupita Nyong’o at the world premiere of Us in Austin at SXSW on Friday night, she leapt from her seat and started punching the air to cheer for her film and hype up the crowd. She was PUMPED because she knew what we were about to see: the most talked about movie of the festival. Full Story
