Women Is Losers Trailer: Simu Liu Stars In The SXSW Hit Coming To HBO Max

Marvel's latest super friend is certainly switching it up for "Women Is Losers," the newest film from actress, producer, and director Lissette Feliciano. This equally depressing and uplifting movie has Simu Liu (who you definitely know from "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings" and "Kim's Convenience") acting alongside Lorenza Izzo ("Once Upon A Time In Hollywood"), Bryan Craig ("General Hospital") and Chrissie Fit ("Pitch Perfect 2") in a film that's based off of Feliciano and her mother'...

SXSW Hit Women Is Losers Will Stream On HBO Max In October

Writer-director Lissette Feliciano is having a good year. Following an SXSW premiere, her feature debut "Women Is Losers" got a pick-up from HBO Max. The streaming service snagged North American rights to the film, a '60s-era drama starring Lorenza Izzo ("The Green Inferno"), Chrissie Fit (the upcoming "I Know What You Did Last Summer" series), Bryan Craig ("General Hospital"), and star Simu Liu ("Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings"). The film drops on HBO Max only on October 18, 2021. Th...

‘Women is Losers’ Review: Lorenza Izzo Breathes New Life Into a Familiar Narrative [SXSW 2021]

In the 2013 horror film  The Green Inferno , Lorenza Izzo’s portrayal of a naive activist trapped on an island with a group of deviants is largely forgotten amidst the gratuitous depravity stealing each scene. However, I always found her depiction of a well-intentioned deer caught in the headlights to be the most audacious, captivating, and haunting performance in the film. She gave the college student Justine the vulnerability of a young woman struggling to come to terms with her place in the...

Young Woman Shot At Cemetery Was Likely Innocent Bystander, Sheriff’s Office Says

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Detectives are searching for whoever shot an 18-year-old college student at a South Sacramento cemetery. The young woman was visiting a gravesite at the Sacramento Memorial Lawn Monday evening when gunfire erupted. “There could have been a stray bullet or something like that could go past here,” said Marciano Feliciano, who lives in the area. Detectives believe the woman could have been caught in the middle of a possible gang-related shooting. They say the young woman was li...

Relist Watch Select

John Elwood briefly reviews Monday’s relists. Because of the , it will be another brief writeup today. The Supreme Court cleared out an enormous number of relists at the February 21 conference — its first conference in almost a month. The court granted review in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, 19-123, an important case involving the free exercise clause of the First Amendment. The city of Philadelphia wants to exclude Catholic Social Services from participating in its foster-care program un...

Justices to take up case involving faith-based adoption agencies and same-sex couples

The Supreme Court returned from its winter recess today with just one new grant from last week’s private conference, but the newest addition to the court’s merits docket is a significant one. Next term the justices will hear oral argument in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, a challenge by several foster parents and Catholic Social Services to the city’s policy of cutting off referrals of foster children to CSS for placement because the agency would not certify same-sex couples as foster parents. ...

John Elwood briefly reviews the likely relists. This is not a time of year that is usually known for being relaxing . For normal humans, this is the winter of their discontent , a period of bad weather between the end of the football season and the start of spring training . But for Supreme Court-watchers like me , the period between the last January conference and the mid-February conference is like one long vacay . That’s because we have the better part of a month with only one set...

John Elwood briefly reviews Monday’s relists. There are so many interesting relists to discuss this week that I’m not even going to try. Who has time to discuss 19 new relists? After all, I’m busy preparing for other pressing commitments, so it’s time once again for the affordable luxury of Relist Watch SelectTM. As some internet rando put it, “[t]his week’s relists involve the most comically high-profile group of issues I think I’ve ever seen. If they actually granted in all those cases, everyo...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. Congress is fighting with the executive branch to try to obtain information this week. But here at Relist Watch, we’re just giving the stuff away. A lot of throughput this week, as the Supreme Court disposed of five relists. Most puzzling is City of Newport Beach, California v. Vos, 18-672, which asked whether the Americans with Disabilities Act requires law-enforcement officers to provide accommodations to armed, violent and mentally ill suspects as they br...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. The world’s a mess: Tension in the Persian Gulf; turmoil in global trade; persistent conflict. The way things are going, many people can’t even seek comfort in simple escapism. But amid all the conflict and strife, you can at least take comfort in the familiar ritual of opening a new week’s installment of Relist Watch and saying those familiar words uttered by legions of readers since our second installment: “It’s not funny anymore.” Last week’s relists yiel...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. With nothing happening in the news, I feel like there’s not much to work with for the traditional flimsy topical introduction. So let’s just get started. Only two new relists this week. Both Myers v. United States, 18-6859, and Santos v. United States, 18-7096, involve fairly arcane issues about what crimes qualify as predicate offenses under the much-litigated Armed Career Criminal Act – specifically, whether certain state crimes are “divisible,” meaning th...

Reschedule Watch Returns

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. A lot of movement on the relist front this week. Most noteworthy of all, the Supreme Court granted the long–simmering trio of cases involving whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or discrimination on the basis of gender identity. At 10 relists each, the cases were well past the usual “sell by date” at which it’s more likely that the cases will be the subject of a summary reversal or a ...

Relist Watch: The Muller Report

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. I normally try to have Relist Watch written up by Wednesday after the court issues its order list. Here it is late Thursday and I’m just getting it out. It’s not just that I’m lazy, though I am. It’s that I’ve been mulling over the five new relists, and what I think their prospects are for Supreme Court review. In fact, I’ve been mulling these cases so deeply that you could call today’s installment the “Muller Report.” I like the ring of it. I’ve also spent ...

John Elwood previews next Monday’s likely relists. This week’s installment is going to be brief, but at least it won’t be funny. It’s not just that I’m pressed for time, though I am: As I type this, the power is out for my entire neighborhood, and I sit hunched over my laptop in inky blackness.

John Elwood reviews Monday’s relists. After last week’s relist commotion, this week the changes are fewer, more subtle, and bad news for petitioners. Eight-time relist Newton v. Indiana, 17-1511, involving whether Miller v. Alabama applies to discretionary sentences of life without parole imposed for juvenile offenses, has been downgraded to a “hold” for last week’s grant in Mathena v. Malvo, 18-217, (itself relisted seven times) which basically covers the same issue. (The news isn’t that bad fo...

The International Hair Trends You Won't See On Instagram

Instagram may be just seven years old, but it’s damned near impossible to remember how we got on without it. For beauty lovers, the social media site has given us a steady stream of new celebrity cuts, product leaks, and a surge of of-the-moment hair color trends. But the app has also made for an influx of homogeneous beauty looks, because we all get bombarded with the same well-liked posts.

11 Years On: Why I’m Still Glad We Bought Our Mexican Home

In 2005, my husband and I bought an old house in the center of Guanajuato, Mexico. I wrote a post about it for Get Rich Slowly at the time.

Controversial Versions of “The Star Spangled Banner”: Igor Stravinsky, Jimi Hendrix, José Feliciano & John Philip Sousa

The kind of imperial project likely to end up a collection of crumbling monuments with every other empire of the past? Or are they living emblems of a secular republic whose primary embodiment is its people? A country, like its people, that must reconstitute itself with each generation in order to survive...
