Top 10 movies of 2013

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Cinema | Leave a comment

Spring Breakers

Swag-tastic trip to the Disneyland for the YOLO generation : think #neonnightmare or a #dubstepfairytail. I’m pretty certain that’s exactly what ‘Tumblr: The movie’ would look like. And being a part of the ADD generation, I can’t help but love all the crazy imagery, rave-friendly soundtrack and Disney-stars-gone-rogue cast.

Bling Ring

Another dreamy trip into the lives of the media-savvy youth of the 00s. Sophia Coppola keeps her poker face and never makes it clear what we’re getting here: a satire about Young Hollywood or a spin-off of ‘MTV Cribs’. One thing for sure: being a celebrity thief in LA surely looks like a hell lot of job – you’re like totally have to look, like, hot and stuff.

Much Ado About Nothing

Joss Whedon never shied away from Shakespearean themes in work but this time he went as far as making his own version of the classic story about two stubborn lovers with big hearts and sharp tongues. His modernized version of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ (which keeps the original dialogs) is all charm – it’s a house literally filled with Whedonverse darlings spitting tongue-twisting retorts with the same passion they used to fight forces of darkness before.

Her

The movie based on a satirical idea of a man falling in love with an OC (which does have a ridiculously sexy voice) turned out to be one of the most heartfelt and thoughtful love stories of the recent years. This tech-romance requires zero upgrades: it’s perfect just the way it is.

Dallas Buyers Club

True heroes rarely look heroic. They also rarely look like Matthew McConaughey, but if anything the movie proves there’s more to this guy than his romcom past. Much more. It takes a lot of talent to take away attention from Jared Leto playing a transgender women and Matthew pulls it off in a heartbeat. It’s a top-notch performance that screams Academy Award.

Wolf of Wall Street

3-hour-long roller coaster ride down the greedy and hilarious lives of Wall Street’s colorful baddies. Leo bares all of his talents here (often – literally) and wins big: it’s by far his most masterful and diverse performance.

Inside Llewyn Davis

Being a folk singer is never easy. Especially if you have a pretty shitty personality. The titular character of Coen’s vintage drama is hardly a nice guy but any creative person can easily relate to at least some of his struggles while enjoying a fantastic supporting cast.

It’s a Disaster

Here’s a movie about LA residents dealing with the Apocalypse which does not feature James Franco or a rape scene with the Devil. This indie flick tells a story of a ‘couples brunch’ that took an expected turn after the guests realized that the End of the world may prevent them from enjoying the main course. Best part: that’s probably how people would behave to the unexpected Apocalypse in real life. It’s always sad to hear that your favorite organic coffee shop was destroyed by a nuclear explosion.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Just when it looked like we’d never get a decent teen franchise again, we got ‘Hunger Games’ – stylish and brutal story about rebelling against the government machine, which pays much more attention to the actual uprising rather than teen love (thank God!). The sequel surpasses the original on almost every level and leaves you begging for more.

Anchorman 2

Simply the most hilarious comedy in the past several years. Never vulgar and always playful, it follows one simple rule: ‘the random is God’. And when the execution is that good, it’s hard to argue that it really is a winning formula. Other lesson learned: never trust a shark names Dobby.

NYC vlog 7: NYE in Williamsburg

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, Travel | Leave a comment

This is my first American winter and I was looking forward to my first NYE party. And honestly it couldn’t have been better: we had a killer party at Williamsburg and I didn’t even get a killer hangover (which is always a big plus). I DJed, I danced, I laughed.

Here’s what it looked like:

Today I’m spinning for the second time at NYC’s ‘FairyTail Lounge’ (500 W 48th st) and it’s all about CLUELESS, JAWBREAKER, MEAN GIRLS and new teen classic – GBF (coming to NYC on Jan, 24th). Fun and bitchiness kicks off at 10pm.

The return of Danity Kane

Posted on by Mikey Moscow in Blog, MikeyMoscowTV, Music | Leave a comment

Talk about perfect timing… What were the chances that I’d get to LA exactly the same time when Danity Kane would do their comeback show?! I mean 4 months ago we wouldn’t even dream about ever hearing ‘Show Stopper’ live again and here we are now – with 4 of 5 ladies back together to remind us about their driving skills and bad girl agendas. And make me feel like I’m 16 all over again!

Just like their original career, the show was short (about 50 minutes), fierce and charming. Danity Kane was never a huge band: they weren’t as corky as Girls Aloud, or brand-friendly as The Pussycat Dolls, but they were always pretty decent: 5 sexy girls with enough sass and charisma to record two great albums and provide enough drama for 4 seasons of Diddy-produced ‘Making the band’ show on MTV. The band split during a heated series finale in 2008 and girls started solo projects (with Aubrey O’Day and Dawn Richards attracting the most attention). Yet somehow a lot of their material aged incredibly well – I personally never really got over the brilliance of ‘Show Stopper’ and ‘Bad Girl’. They were always way too good with the whole ‘silly sexy’ vibe.

Watching them perform together again after all these years was surprisingly satisfying. What was missing during recent Girls Aloud reunion (the chemistry between the girls and the sense that they’re really back) was very present here. Everything was spot on: the dancing, the singing, the fun. The highlight of the show was girls’ solo mini-performances which highlighted their upbringings (‘That explains a lot’ said Shannon after Aubrey did her version of ‘Like a Virgin’). And the whole concert was all about their show stopping charismas: Aubrey was dry humping the curtains and grinding on the speakers, Dawn was waving her ridiculously long hair and shooting the fierceness all over the place, Aundrea was literally jumping with excitement and Shannon has finally replaced ‘cute’ with ‘sexy’ providing killer moves and striking new looks. It was a girlband show from heaven. The one that was made for the fans: we got all the hits and some amazing album tracks (‘You know you want my strip tease, If you want it say please’!). The lack of new material (we only got one song towards the end) was rather disappointing but then again there’s hopefully more to come so a night dedicated to the band’s past was more than alright with me. These bad girls are on FIRE.
