As a film fan, self-professed cinenerd, and an ex-film programmer at the New York International Latino Film Festival, the closure of the long-running fest last year was soul crushing. There are very few spaces dedicated to exhibiting Latino cinema and a lot of the remaining ones are on shaky ground.

The summer just got hotter with the return of the “East Los High: Season 2!” Since the first class graduated they’ve had some bragging rights like being the number one show on Hulu Latino and top five overall in programming. Not too shabby for an all Latino cast who gained a legion of faithful fans called “ELHAddicts!” Well, there’s a new cast (and some familiar faces) to bring the ruckus to East Los High School! LatinoBuzz decided to welcome them by throwing them on a deserted island to fend for themselves. They were allowed to pick a film, an album, a book and a companion from the movies to join them.

Marlene Forte, the actress who plays Carmen Ramos, the Ewing family's longtime Mary Poppins-like superintendent and mother of Elena (Jordana Brewster) on TNT's “Dallas” and I spoke today about the “uncorking” of the second half of Season 3 on Monday, August 18 on TNT. The story line for the rest of the season clearly is going to be all about the Ramos family.

I came across an amazing beautiful photo essay by Angela Boatwright that she did on punk rockers. They had on all the typical attire you would expect and most were adorned with ill thought out piercings and tattoos. The difference here, tho’, was that these kids were all Latinos.

Displaying tonally perfect performances by the protagonists, “Recommended by Enrique” is awkwardly hilarious and downright original. Modern trends inhabit a strange world of makeshift stardom, obscure intentions, and traditional Mexican spooky legends for an indie movie experience unlike many out there.
