From Folklore To Film: The History Of Cinderella

From Folklore To Film: The History Of Cinderella

Many of us know the Cinderella story thanks to Disney’s popular animated film, but the fairy tale about a girl with a magical guardian dates all the way back to the first century. Since then, several versions have popped up in literature, music, film, and TV, and we recently got a peek at the newest incarnation with the trailer for 2015′s “Cinderella.” And before that, Anna Kendrick will be stepping into the glass slippers in “Into the Woods,” out this Christmas. Let’s take a look at the evolution of Cinderella, from ancient Egypt to now. Read more on Tres Sugar…

Lifetime Has Cast Their Ariel Cruz For "The Michelle Knight Story"

Lifetime has a reputation for toeing the line of good taste, but this is just … ugh.

New Movie Perpetuates Body Shaming By Casting Pretty Actress As "Designated Ugly Fat Friend" & Coining New Term "The DUFF"
Fat And Ugly, They Are Not

I have quite a few problems with the upcoming movie “The DUFF.” I’m not usually much of a film critic — so long as I’m entertained, I’m usually happy. Movies are interpreted differently by different people because that’s what creative expression is all about, but after seeing the trailer for “The DUFF,” I’m downright angry as there’s no mistaking the messages they’re sending.

6 Movie Myths About Sex That are Totally Wrong

We all know the movies don’t necessarily contain the most accurate depictions of actual life. Or do we?

And while I’m willing to overlook some of the media’s follies (like the fact that people in any foreign country all speak English), some of their depictions of sex are just. so. wrong.

Dorkly Made The Ending Of “Se7en” Nicer For Us

Aww, Happiness Is In The Baaahhhhhx!

Were you disturbed the first time you watched “Se7en” in a way that haunts you to this day? Fear not! Dorkly is here to Men-In-Black your memory of the movie and replace it with happiness. In addition to this wonderful video adaptation of the film’s ending, they also have a comic version (with bonus “Empire Strikes Back” and “There Will Be Blood” nicer-interpretations). John Doe just wanted to show he cared! Love is in the baaahhhhhx, Mills! Love!

Now imagine this ending tacked onto the rest of the movie and rate your cognitive dissonance on a scale of 1-100. I’m at about 60, personally. [Dorkly (1), (2)]

"Mean Girls" Cast Reunites 10 Years Later, Looks Better Than Ever

It’s been over 10 years since “Mean Girls” hit theaters, and somehow I’m still just as much in love with The Plastics as I was a decade ago. This week, Entertainment Weekly is releasing their famous reunion edition of the mag, which showcases photos and interviews with the reunited casts of movies and TV shows from the past, including a super-hot spread with the ladies of “Mean Girls.”

Lindsay Lohan, Lacey Chabert, Rachel McAdams, Tiny Fey and Amanda Seyfried got back together for the shoot, and, in my humble opinion, look more stunning than ever. Check out a few pics of the cast here (after the jump!) before picking up the issue this Friday. Also included in EW‘s Reunion Issue are the casts of “Monty Python,” “Ghostbusters,” “Little House On The Prairie,” “The Fabulous Baker Boys,” “Sisters,” “Napoleon Dynamite” and “Sports Night.” SO fetch.
