“The atmospheric Spa Night is a portrait of forbidden sexual awakening set in the nocturnal world of spas and karaoke bars in Los Angeles’ Koreatown. David Cho (Joe Seo in a breakthrough performance), a timid 18-year-old living with his financially-struggling immigrant parents, chances upon a secret cruising spot when he takes a job at an all-male spa. There he begins to realize hidden desires that threaten his life as a dutiful son and student.”
Director Andrew Ahn and actor Joe Seo are set to be in attendance at the Roxie Theatre for the film. Ahn and Seo are due to appear the first two night of Spa Night’s week long run. Appearing after the 7:00p showings Friday, September 30th, and Saturday, October 1st. Go to the Roxie’s website for tickets and show times. Watch the trailer below. Enjoy!
Fuck Pixar’s ‘Inside Out’ or Warner Bros. ‘Batman v Superman’, Tangerine is my must-see summer movie. The trailer itself is so captivating. Regardless of your opinion on marriage equality or the trans-community, the trailer along will silence your thoughts as the characters jump off the screen, just for you to sit back and enjoy the ride. This is the stuff that movies are made of. Tangerine is destined to be a cult classic. Watch the trailer for Magnolia Pictures ‘Tangerine’ below. Enjoy!

Being a Bay Area Head, last year I was more than excited when HBO announced the debut of the series Looking, filmed in my city; San Francisco. However, more than bored by the series, I’m trying not to get my hopes up too high for HBO’s Bros before Hos by creator Ben Cory Jones.
Bros, starring Dijon Talton, Kevin Phillips and Americo “Tuffy” Questell, centers on three African-American brothers — two straight and one gay — who are each dealing with love and dating.
I’ll definitely be tuning in when Bros premieres. Check out the Pilot Presentation for Bros and you be the judge. Will you be watching?
