All Hail Bellatrix Lestrange, The 'Female Monster' 'Harry Potter' Needed
Huffington Post - 8 months
“I killed Sirius Black! I killed Sirius Black!” Bellatrix Lestrange chants with the cadence of a deranged preschool teacher butchering nursery rhymes for sport in “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.” Bellatrix is high off murdering Harry Potter’s godfather and only living “family” member, but the real joy is rubbing it in. “You coming to get me?” she taunts Harry. “He knows how to play. Itty-bitty-baby-Potter.” Her words are punctuated with feral cackles, uttered through teeth caked in plaque, the residue of her time spent wasting away in Azkaban.  When I read the “Harry Potter” books growing up, I had a strange affinity for Ms. Lestrange. Yes, she is a psychopathic Death Eater who worships the Dark Lord and reaps pleasure from the suffering of innocents. But Lestrange also embodies a combination of power, liberation and an unabashed lust for life (and death) I found enticing. Even while using the Cruciatus Curse to scramble the brains of noble...

194 Thoughts I Had While Watching The 'Harry Potter' Franchise For The First Time
Huffington Post - 8 months
When I was 13, I went to see “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” with my best friend, her mom and her brother. It was 2001, and from what I can vaguely remember, it was a good time. But for some reason, I never went back to the theater to see the rest of the “Harry Potter” movies, nor did I watch them from the comfort of my couch.Why is that, you say? Well, I don’t know. I tried listening to a bit of J.K. Rowling’s book series on tape, but I eventually gave up on story time in order to save more minutes for karaoke and collecting Spice Girls lollipops.  Now, at 29 years old, I finally watched the franchise from start to finish, over the course of four days ― and it was freakin’ magical. WHAT TOOK ME SO LONG?? I similarly watched the original “Star Wars” trilogy for the first time back in 2015. Then, like now, I was chastised for being an entertainment journalist who’s never seen one of the most popular film series of all time. (To be honest, I’ve been too busy rewatc...

11 Latina Actresses Who Would've Been Fantastic In The 'Ocean's 8' Reboot
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures released a first look image of the “Ocean’s 8” all-female reboot on Monday, showing the film’s main ladies looking chic and suspicious in the New York City subway.  The “Ocean’s 8” cast seems to be exceptionally diverse for a film of its kind, with Mindy Kaling, Chinese-Korean-American rapper and comedian Awkwafina, Rihanna, Sandra Bullock, Sarah Paulson, Anne Hathaway, Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter cast in the eight leading roles for the all-female reboot slated for June 8, 2018.  With such a large main cast, the film had plenty of opportunities (eight, to be exact) to infuse the film with real diversity. And yet, there’s one major demographic not represented among the leading ladies: Latinas.  Latinos make up 17.6 percent of the U.S. population, according to 2015 Census numbers, and is Hollywood’s most important audience when it comes to profits. “Ocean’s 8” is a great example of Hollywood’s overall la...
