Angela Gulner Delivers Perfect Combination of Love and Bulimia in New Dark Comedy The Blind Girl

Relationships are hard. Now toss in a side of codependency along with an eating disorder and you have the perfect combination. Okay, maybe it’s not exactly perfect. But, it certainly makes for an interesting story.

Creator and actress Angela Gulner puts forth the second project based loosely on her own experience with bulimia, the new dark comedy short The Blind Girl. The film comes as a prequel to the popular pilot project Binge, delivering backstory on a woman who has a messed-up outlook on love and food.

To get both projects done, Angela teamed up with director and producing partner Yuri Baranovsky. And, for the prequel, she brought in a familiar (now older) face, actor Drake Bell from Nickelodeon’s Josh & Drake, to play her love interest.

I recently caught up with Angela Gulner and Yuri Baranovsky to find out more about The Blind Girl.

Blade Runner 2049 - Trailer Thoughts

"Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years."

My thoughts on what might happen thirty years after Blade Runner and the renegade Nexus 6 Replicants. My thoughts are influenced of the promotional trailer released by Warner Bros on December 19, 2016.

First we must understand that Rick Deckard is over with the RepDetect Division at the end of the first movie. He will try to get away from the polluted city and what better way than to head to one of ...Read more

Ghostbusters 2016: A Review and Analysis
So comes the dawn of a new Ghostbusters franchise. The new film, a remake or ‘reboot’ has a lot to prove amongst the backlash by diehard fans. The question is this: is it any good? The original Ghostbusters (1984) was a masterpiece of sci-fi, comedy and horror. It created a whole franchise, everything from toys to video games to comics to products with the Ghostbusters name on that you couldn’t imagine. The original film was a success because the writers, stars as well as everyone who worked on the movie managed to successfully blend different genres together into something inventive and fun. I’m not a big horror fan but the film won me over with how it dealt with it. It was good versus evil for the family. The film could be scary but extremely funny and cool to watch. Everyone wanted a Proton Pack but as Bobby ...Read more
