This Sunday is the first day of spring and, thanks to daylight savings, there are at least two more hours in your day. And what are you going to do with all that extra time? Go see a movie! Yay! This week actually offers a decent selection that should get you motivated for springtime … especially if your springtime involves running from the law (“The Bounty Hunter”), mooching off of your relatives instead of getting a job (“Greenberg”), or starting an all-girl rock band (“The Runaways”). And really, it should include all of those things. Keep reading »
I know I said “Eat Pray Love” looks good earlier today, but I take that back. “Eat Pray Love” looks OK, and “The Greatest” looks really, really good. I was practically in tears just watching this trailer. Carey Mulligan plays a young woman who gets pregnant, and after the father dies, she goes to live with his family, who initially doesn’t treat her very warmly. “The Greatest” comes out April 2.

Madonna‘s first attempt at directing a movie—”Filth and Wisdom,” the story of a Ukranian musician making ends meet as a dominatrix—didn’t go over so hot. It got meh reviews at the Berlin Film Festival, and only got a limited release, though it was available OnDemand. But that won’t stop the Material Girl from trying again. She is set to direct a new movie, “W.E.,” a historical drama about King Edward VIII, who gave up the throne to propose to married American socialite Wallis Simpson. While Madonna had considered playing the role of Wallis herself, earlier this week, it was announced that Vera Farmiga of “Up In The Air” would bring said socialite to life. “[Madonna] approached me,” said Vera. “We sat for a cup of tea and again for a cup of tea. Hopefully, it will all come together.” [Ace Showbiz]
As I sit here in the lobby updating you about the crunk goings-on at SXSW, there is an impromptu concert going on in the lobby of my hotel. Yeah … the lobby. Because that’s how they roll here in Austin. I haven’t even finished my morning coffee yet and I’m listening to a dope cover of Blu Cantrell’s “Hit ‘Em Up Style” Also, I should mention that I’ve seen at least 14 guys that have made me drool in the last 10 minutes. They are everywhere! This is a freaking man Mecca! But I’m here for the music, right? Keep reading »
