We’re exactly one month away from the first day of summer and if you, like I, haven’t realized this, we might have a lot of spring cleaning, spring flinging, and summer preparing to do. I guess that means you’re supposed to organize your closet, make out with a dude and paint your toenails? And because you/we have so much on our plate, it’s important to not waste valuable energy on socializing and partying until the wee hours of the morning and this is why you should go see a movie instead. Never thought I’d get to the point, did you? This week, “Shrek Forever After,” “Solitary Man,” and “Daddy Longlegs” are out, but if those aren’t your cup of tea, check out the previous releases!

For the past six seasons of “Lost,” every single episode has brought us at least one new oddity to ponder. And yet, as frequently as questions are posed, it’s not that often that a question is actually answered. This is why the love the show, but also what makes it such an ever-evolving mind bender. Now we are down to the final episode. It’s a long one—two and a half hours to be exact—but it has all us fans wondering, how the heck are they going to tie up all the loose ends?
Sadly, they won’t. Today, producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse announced that because they felt they didn’t have enough time to finish all the story lines, the season six DVD will contain 20 extra minutes. But uh, we don’t want to wait until August or have to drop $50 to know everything! After the jump, the 10 questions we need answers to on Sunday. Keep reading »
Normally, I would rather bang my head repeatedly against a wall for two hours than go see a romantic comedy. But “Going the Distance,” with real-life couple Drew Barrymore
and Justin Long, looks kind of awesome. Why are these two so dang cute? Keep reading »
After six seasons of watching “Lost” going “huh?” at 99 percent of the plot revelations each week, only one thing remains clear— some characters are just awesome, especially when they do completely crazy, amazing stunts! Like, look at Desmond saving Claire. The man has vision and so do the genius writers for figuring out a way to get him shirtless and soaking wet. But this is just the icing on the cake of coolness that is “Lost.” Needless to say, Desmond is not the only cast member who looked danger in the eye and said, “I got this one.” Check out our top five favorite moments with the best of the cast kickin’ some serious butt.

I haven’t seen “The Back-up Plan” yet, which is Jennifer Lopez‘s new flick about a woman who conceives via a sperm donor before meeting a guy she falls in love with. I just read this post at Feministing by blogger Miriam Perez, though, which pointed out something kind of odd: Lopez’s character in the film not only has a Caucasian grandmother, but gives birth to blue-eyed, redheaded, light-skinned twin babies.

And just like that, upfronts week is over. Yesterday, in addition to CBS’s presentation, Conan O’Brien delivered the TBS and TNT fall lineups, which he will be a part of come Nov. 8. “I really believe in cable television,” he joked. “I do not want to live in a country with less than five ESPN networks.”
Then this morning was The CW’s turn. The network for the young folk brought in Katy Perry to hype up the crowd. At first, it was a little awkies, with no one in the auditorium standing up or dancing as she sang her sequined heart out. But after she shouted, “Is it too early to stand up and have some f**king fun?” it was on.
After the jump, the shows from these presentations that have me giddy. Keep reading »
Google’s “Smart TV” debuts today at some techie conference in San Francisco. This is all good and well, but I’m sure many of you are wondering, “What the hell is that!?” The Sony device uses Intel Corp chips and Google software and is a response to a big ‘ol drop in TV sales. The deets are still fuzzy because tech guys can be very secretive when it comes to their new inventions but, from what I can tell, the coolest thing about Google’s “Smart TV” is that it allows you to have internet access on your television. The set will include a TV and Blu-ray DVD player but will have tons of web content. It will also have a keyboard that functions as a remote control. According to Bloomberg, “Internet access will be integrated with advanced television guides, personal content libraries and search.” This television-internet software isn’t available to consumers yet but, we wanna know, will you buy it when it is?
