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.

We all know the movies don’t necessarily contain the most accurate depictions of actual life. Or do we?
Whether we realize it or not, we all pick up subtle things from movies that we expect to find in our actual lives. 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.

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)]

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.

There’s something magical about movies. Whether you’re watching one in a dark theater, on a couch with some popcorn, or under the comfort of a blanket in your own bed, movies allow us a very specific form of escape.
And women tend to be the most regular moviegoers out there. According to a 2012 MPAA report, women actually go to the movies more than men, making up 52% of in-theater audiences each year. It’s a wonder then that there aren’t more female-led blockbusters. (Hint hint, nudge nudge, Hollywood powers that be.)
Even though the characters are usually fictional, we’ve learned some pretty amazing lessons from the people that come alive in our favorite films. Read more on Huffington Post Women…
Woooo! The latest “Hunger Games” trailer is out! We’re so close to the release date! Also, are any other fans of the series just not that excited at this point?
When I read the books, I was rapt for the first book, interested for the second, and then I remember feeling, during the third, like Suzanne Collins was writing for an adaptation to screen, with somehow simultaneously dazzling and tedious descriptions of The Capitol’s physical setting, confusing and vague action sequences, and needless worrying over the Gale-Katniss-Peeta love triangle. Mockingjay, the third book in the trilogy,was written and released before Lionsgate picked up the rights to produce The Hunger Games books as films, but the series was so successful by the time she wrote the third book that I’m sure it had to at least be in the back of her mind. The book read like it, anyway — like if it was going to end up on screen anyway, there was room to fudge some of it, because it could be figured out visually later. Keep reading »
