Director Gurinder Chadha has brought the music of the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, and created a wonderful film that tells an amazing story in the upcoming film Blinded by the Light. Inspired by the true story of journalist Sarfraz Manzoor, this wonderful film tells the tale of Javed, a British teen of Pakistani descent, who discovers the world outside his family life and 1980’s hometown through the music of Bruce Springsteen. I sat with Ms. Chadha to talk about meeting Bruce and bringing Manzoor’s story to the big screen.

Does Conan’s Comic-Con tapings guest list. I’m working with TBS and hope to be at one of these tapings. But no guarantees. Conan O’Brien returns to San Diego for the fifth year in a row with a week of special one-hour star-filled shows taped during Comic-Con® International. This year’s shows will feature the stars of Veronica Mars, It Chapter Two, Carnival Row and plenty of super-star surprise guests. There’s a mysterious surprise guest listed for Thursday’s taping so obviously that’s the one I want to go to, but sadly I have interviews.
I feel like I need to say this before any Marvel review this year, I’m a long time Marvel comic book fangirl, but I’ve never been a MCU can do no wrong fan girl. In my eyes, they’ve done plenty of wrong. I absolutely detested Spider-Man: Homecoming. Ok, that’s a bit harsh, I loved Michael Keaton as the Vulture but didn’t like much else about it. To this very day, I haven’t bothered to watch it 2nd time. With that said, a lot of my issues from the Homecoming remain in Far From Home but there is so much greatness here that after End Game and Captain Marvel, it’s time I come out of the closet and join the Marvel can do no wrong club – except for a few minor quibbles this is an almost perfect summer film with a post credit sequence that blew my mind.
