Love Season 2 Trailer Arrives Just In Time For Valentine’s Day

Like it or lump it, Valentine’s Day is upon us – and there’s Love in the air.

And we’re not talking about the sickeningly sentimental, schmaltzy kind that’s no doubt populating your various social feeds; instead, we’re referring to the Netflix original series that struck a chord with subscribers last year with a refreshingly frank, down-to-earth look at romance in the 21st century. Told through the lens of Mickey and Gus – Community‘s Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust, respectively – Love chronicles the unlikely romance that blossoms when a self-confessed sex addict (Mickey) crosses paths with an aspiring screenwriter named Gus. It’s a dynamic that brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘it’s complicated’ and up above you’ll find the very first trailer for Love season 2, which arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day.

The 10 best web series of 2013

From surreal sci-fi invasion comedy The Power Inside to hard-hitting death row documentary One for Ten, it has been an eclectic but wonderful year for web TV series

If television is the brash younger sibling of cinema, then online web series are its screaming newborn grandchildren. As it's a medium still very much in its infancy, a whole host of questions remain unanswered. How long should an episode be? How do you keep fickle viewers coming back for more? Will they ever make any money? Until those answers are found, online filmmakers will continue to explore the possibilities of the nascent form, occasionally with wonderful results. Here are the best examples from 2013.

The Power Inside

When Earth is invaded by a plague of killer moustaches, an ageing barber (Harvey Keitel) and his downtrodden sidekick (Submarine's Craig Roberts) are humanity's last line of defence against the extra-terrestrial facefuzz.

An anti-hipster sci-fi comedy,

‘Love’ Story

Tyler Maddox-Simms returns from a several-year hiatus to write and direct “Love Chronicles: Secrets Revealed.”

Love Chronicles,” the romantic dramedy that Tyler Maddox-Simms wrote and directed in 2003, was first envisioned as a novel. “I started writing a book called ‘Love Chronicles,’ which I still haven’t completed,” she explains. When she found the project too time-consuming to finish, she decided to tell the story in a screenplay instead, structuring short romantic “vignettes” around Los Angeles radio station Kluv.

Seven years later, the cast has changed — Ving Rhames, Mike Epps and Vivica A. Fox have stepped into new roles — but the premise is the same. The unique and agile format allows Maddox-Simms to address several significant themes — including infidelity, unemployment, police harassment, gang violence, drugs, prostitution and faith — in a short amount of time. “Chronicles, like affairs of the heart, they don’t end,” she says. “As a writer, I wanted

Trailer For “Love Chronicles: Secrets Revealed” (Vivica Fox, Rockmond Dunbar, Ving Rhames)

It’s apparently a sequel to the 2003 film, Love Chronicles, which starred Robin Givens & Terrence Howard. Didn’t see it. Did you? It was a straight-to-dvd release, just as Love Chronicles: Sercrets Revealed will be as well; look for this “romantic dramedy” on Netflix next week Tuesday, July 13th.

The story goes… As radio personality Darren (Rockmond Dunbar) dishes out relationship advice over the airwaves, he struggles to prevent his own marriage to Janet (Vivica A. Fox) from falling apart. Meanwhile, fellow DJ Mike V (Ving Rhames) tries to protect a young woman from getting her heart broken. Mike Epps also stars as a successful author who counsels a married woman (Elise Neal).

Tyler Maddox-Simms is the director; this is his 3rd effort. He also directed the first Love Chronicles movie, and, before that, a 1999 film called Bar-b-q, about an athlete, his girlfriend, friends, and a barbecue party, crashed by neighbors.

I Am Love or Mama Sleeps with the Chef

Operatic in scope, Luca Guadagnino's mesmerizing I Am Love chronicles the carryings-on of an aristocratic Italian family from one grand meal to another. But with each bite taken from each exquisitely prepared dish, the final course of tragedy gets more and more ready to be served up.

In the opening scenes, in an overwhelming Milan manor, the matriarch, Emma Recchi (Tilda Swinton), along with her brigade of servants, sweeps from room to room, making sure every detail is perfect. Even in the kitchen, a misplaced drop of sauce on a plate is carefully wiped away.

And while the pots are ever so carefully stirred, the children and the guests arrive like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle that don't quite fit together.

Youssou N’Dour: I Bring What I Love - DVD Review

This has been a wild couple of weeks with the number of documentaries I’ve been watching about musicians as of late.

From a couple of Blu-ray releases of live concerts, a movie about the Doors, and now this, it has been a whirlwind of performances that showcase music of all kinds. The thing about Youssou N’Dour: I Bring What I Love is that I was not expecting to like it as much as I did. Ballasted by the fact that this movie has come out under the Oscilloscope Laboratory banner, becoming required viewing simply because it has so far had an unbeaten track record of films that have a
