A ‘Call My By Your Name’ Sequel Novel is Officially Being Written – Could a Movie Follow?

Top 5 Alternative Romance Movies

Top 5 Alternative Romance Movies What is an “alternative romance movie”? We’re talking about films that grab you by the heart and then rip it out. They don’t necessarily have a “happy ending” and they weren’t based on Nicholas Sparks’s novels. These are the movies that simultaneously show the beauty and the ugliness of love. They show how love can inspire you, challenge you and leave you dancing, but they also show how love can leave you screaming into a pillow or crying in the shower. These ...

A glowing, 3D printed rose that "blooms" when you touch its petals

Daren Schwenke's 3D printed blooming rose embeds a capacitive touch sensor -- a magnetic wire -- in one of the leaves, which trips an Arduino-controlled actuator that changes the rose's lighting and causes the petals -- 3D printed and then shaped over a hot chandelier bulb -- to splay open or fold closed. The build log reveals a lively open-source hardware/free software collaboration that is a miniature, perfect case-study. What finally materialized is a terrific combination of common ha...

‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ Sequel Short Adds Lily James and Alicia Vikander

Toward the end of last year, we learned that a Four Weddings and a Funeral sequel was being planned as a short film to support the charitable Red Nose Day campaign. Writer Richard Curtis is back to script the sequel, and Mike Newell will be directing again, too. But let’s be honest, it’s the returning cast you’re excited to see after 25 years. And while pretty much everyone from the original movie will be back, there are a couple of new cast members getting in on the fun. Baby Driver star Lily ...

‘Long Shot’ Review: A Vocal Modern Rom-Com Carried By Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron [SXSW]

Jonathan Levine’s Long Shot is a sufficiently safety-wrapped package of vocal demands for change structured around equally predictable rom-com beats (watch the trailer). Not the worst thing in the world by any stretch of emphasis, mind you. Cutesy Hallmark signatures are traded for shared gender relationship roles, highlighting women’s ongoing strife in daily global environments while romance flourishes under often redefined subgenre frameworks. Liz Hannah and Dan Sterling’s screenplay says les...

How Travelers Share Social Media Romance and Make the Most Out of the Hostel

What comes to your mind when I mention Hostel? Hostels are cultural phenomena that for many perceive to mostly be geared towards youth. And it has also been called Youth Hostels. Today’s Hostels is typically low-priced social accommodations where travelers rent a bed, usually a bunk bed. The operational costs of a Hostel are cheaper than a traditional low-budget Hotel or Motel. There have been some new Hostels that introduced single, double or quad rooms even suites in some cases.

Netflix U.K. Changed the Ending of ‘The Notebook’ and Fans Are Upset

Fans looking for a good cry on Netflix may have been disappointed if they live in the U.K. Viewers of the streaming service in that country found that The Notebook ending had been altered, depriving them of the waterworks that the film was known for. And fans were not happy. Hollywood has been known to change a tragic ending into a happy one, but for a streaming service to alter an ending to a movie that has been out for years? That’s odd, and more than a little questionable. According to Th...

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway | Lady Derring Takes a Lover by Julie Anne Long

I'm delighted to be a part of the blog tour for this first novel in Julie Anne Long's new historical series―The Palace of Rogues. I found my way to Ms. Long's writing in a bit of a piecemeal fashion. Her long-running series is widely beloved and records the various and sundry escapades of the always-scheming, never repentant Eversea and Redmond families. Really, the series is worth the price of admission for the hilarious (and ever-evolving) "Ballad of Colin Eversea" alone (though Colin's is ...

8 Ways to Create the Love You Want

Motivational speaker Tony Robbins once said that “We waste time looking for the perfect lover, instead of creating the perfect love.” While the initial phase of a relationship seems effortless, the sublime chemical release of early love will only get us so far. Eventually, if we want the partnership to endure, we have to roll up our sleeves and start to sweat. My husband and I recently attended a marriage retreat where we heard from couples who have survived affairs, medical problems, family f...

'Isn’t It Romantic' Is Escapist Fare with a Cheeky Twist

None The romantic comedy, far from its heyday in the '90s, has become an oversaturated and cliché-ridden genre. But to satirize rom-coms, or to bemoan their lack of originality or insight into the human condition, is just as unappealing. The reality of the genre is that much of it, in all its iterations, is tired. But can't the same be said for genre fare at large? Rom-coms, like all genres, have good and bad exemplars in equal measure. Science fiction, fantasy and superhero films, it can be sa...

How ‘Isn’t It Romantic?’ Made Director Todd Strauss-Schulson’s Childhood Dream a Cinematic Reality

Like many romantic comedies, Isn’t It Romantic? makes New York City a big part of the story. In fact, there are two versions of The Big Apple in the movie. First, there’s the grungy, dingy real New York City that we all know and love. Then there’s the colorful, vibrant and picturesque version of New York City that exists in the romcom dream world that Rebel Wilson finds herself stuck in. It’s in this world that director Todd Strauss-Schulson was able to create a scene that he’s been dreaming of...

Isn’t It Romantic? is in theaters right now. The story follows a New York architect named Natalie (Rebel Wilson) who works hard to get noticed at her job.

‘After’ Trailer: The Movie Based On a Harry Styles Fan Fiction is ‘Fifty Shades’ For Teens

A writer publishes a wildly popular fan fiction series that gets turned into a book. That book becomes a phenomenon and eventually gets adapted into a steamy, boundary-pushing feature film franchise. Sound familiar? Well, rinse and repeat that formula that was set by Fifty Shades of Grey — which famously traces its roots back to a Twilight fan fiction — and you’ve got After, the upcoming erotic romance movie that is (literally) a Harry Styles fan fiction meets Fifty Shades of Grey.

After years of outstanding work as a cyberlawyer and science fiction/policy wonk, Kevin Bankston (previously) has published his debut science fiction story, Early Adopter, and it's a doozy. Bankston uses chatlogs and other exhaust from digital communications tools to spin a gorgeous and haunting tale of romance that starts with "met cute" and goes farther than you'd ever believe.
