Trailer Park: “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” “Howl,” “Waiting for ‘Superman,’” “Buried”

Well, it’s officially fall now and along with the heavier foods and heavier sweaters come some heavier movies. Thank goodness, because I couldn’t deal with another teenager falling in love on the beach. Now it’s just a steady build-up to the bah-humbug movies of the season of chilled hearts. It’s time for some self-reflection and hoarding food for the winter. And because a lot of people are too lazy to read books these days, movies are a concise alternative—now go catch one of these flicks! Keep reading »

Chris Evans Walks Around In Foot Boots

So, have you ever wondered how, like, action stars pull off complicated and physically challenging action scenes when their character is also supposed to be barefoot? Yeah, I haven’t ever wondered that either, but now I know the answer. FOOT BOOTS. Chris Evans is currently filming “Captain America” and was shot parading around on set in these weird shoes. They give me the creeps, but I suppose they are quite practical for movie-making. [Dlisted] Keep reading »

Unfortunately for the latter, I’d probably go with some other company’s “handsome guy mask,” because SPFX’s version is scaring the crap out of me. [The Gloss] Keep reading »

“I’m not an unhealthy person and I feel like one of the most tiring parts of being fat and being proud of it is … you do a lot of proving yourself all the time. It’s really interesting to me that people will look at a thin person and go, ‘That’s a healthy person.’ I want to go, ‘Come open my refrigerator and look and then let’s talk about what you think is so bad.’ To be thin and to stay really thin, sometimes … some people literally do coke all the time. Some people smoke cigarettes instead of eating. That’s crazy. But that’s ‘okay’ because you look healthier.”
