Would You Date A Guy Who … Wears Star Trek Cologne?

This May will see the release of the latest Star Trek movie, directed by JJ Abrams and starring Chris Pine, Erica Bana, and … Winona Ryder? Since Star Trek-loving nerds still abound, and what with a whole new generation of Star Trek geeks waiting to happen, a bevy of Star Trek related merch will be hitting store shelves when the movie premieres, in hopes of squeezing as many dollars as possible out of wannabe Trekkies. Star Trek Uno, anyone? Perhaps you’d prefer a Vulcan cookie jar. Or maybe you’d like to buy your man some … Star Trek cologne? Genki Wear is producing a trio of Star Trek inspired scents: Tiberius, Pon Farr, and Red Shirt. So, if you want your man to smell like Captain Kirk, go into a Vulcan heat, or get down like a red shirt, Star Trek cologne can make it happen. That is, if you’d date a guy who’d wear it.

10 Chick Flick Cliches That Are NOT In “He’s Just Not That Into You”

You know what? I know that everyone and their mom is going to hate on the movie version of “He’s Just Not That Into You.” Maybe there was a reason to hate on the book — I don’t know, I didn’t read it — but this movie looks funny. For starters, I love Ginnifer Goodwin; I also have been known to stare at a cell phone for over an hour, willing it to ring (with a call from a guy I totally love); I also have spent many, many years making crap excuses for bad boy behavior because I just didn’t want to recognize that maybe he was either A) a douche or B) a perfectly fine who was just not that into me. Am I betraying women everywhere for admitting to that? I don’t think so. Anyway, in the hilarious video above, the male stars of the film explain the 10 Chick Flick Cliches that are NOT in this particular chick flick. So you could technically maybe bring a dude to it. Only I wouldn’t, if you ever want to hear from him again. Keep reading »

Soderbergh’s The Girlfriend Experience Screens At Sundance

The latest buzz at this year’s Sundance Film Festival centers around Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming movie, “The Girlfriend Experience.” The film has gotten tons of attention since it was announced, for two reasons. It’s a peek into the exclusive, mostly unseen world of high-end escorting. And, its star is Sasha Grey, a 20-year-old adult film star. This week, “The Girlfriend Experience” made its debut at the festival, and the reviews range from positive to mixed. Defamer reports: “[A]s Soderbergh films go, it’s in the austere league of ‘Bubble’ and ‘Che,’ likely to confound the average moviegoer and irritate the eager pornhound Grey-ophile — which is kind of how we like him.” Even though it stars a porn star, the movie features no explicit sex, nor, opines Defamer, “any sexiness whatsoever.” Other critics describe “GFE” as “not-half-bad,” “a nuanced character study,” and “fascinating.” Keep reading »

Dating Drama: To Movie Date Or Not To Movie Date?

“Dinner and a movie” may sound like the most boring, clichéd date ever, but I think movie dates are hot. When you go to the movies with someone, you learn a lot about them: what kinds of films they like, whether they pay for the tickets, how they behave in the theater. You may not be talking during the movie, but there’s a lot to be said for body language. Keep reading »

Let The February Rom-Coms Begin!

Movie studios know we will eat up pure sap around Valentine’s Day. As cheesy as it’s probably going to be, I can’t wait for “He’s Just Not That Into You,” which comes out a month from tomorrow. I laughed out loud watching this new trailer, mostly because there are some valid points. Like Drew Barrymore’s character says, “I had this guy leave me a voicemail at work, so I called him at home. And then he emailed to my BlackBerry, and so I texted to his cell. And now you just have to go around checking all these different portals just to be rejected by seven different technologies. It’s exhausting!” Keep reading »

If Love Is A Sniper, Kill Me

There are so many great movies out in theaters now: “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Revolutionary Road,” “Marley & Me”… But I’m a broke ass ho who can’t afford to pay $12 a ticket, but, thanks to the TV, I saw this lil’ gem, “Bed Head,” during a film festival and it’s up on YouTube for free. Yay, for the interweb! Now, I’m not sure why the lady star is wearing a tube dress and carrying a clutch mid-day, but love is all about the suspension of disbelief.

Jennifer Aniston Finally Beats Brad Pitt At Something

Jennifer Aniston may not be married with six-million children like her ex Brad Pitt, but now she has something on him. Aniston’s movie “Marley & Me” took home an estimated $37 million this weekend, while Pitt’s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” made $27 million, less than Adam Sandler’s “Bedtime Stories”! Amelia thinks “Benjamin Button” lost because it was about “a gross old man baby” (see photo at left). I think it’s because the dog who played Marley is way better looking than Brad Pitt. Did you see either movie this weekend? [Reuters] Keep reading »

First Look At HBO’s “Grey Gardens” Movie

I’m majorly conflicted about the fact that Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange are starring in an upcoming movie based on the documentary “Grey Gardens,” and remain conflicted after watching this first look clip above. Can the two actresses pull off Big and Little Edie Beale, the aunt and first cousin of Jackie Kennedy? Lange, who has certainly proved her acting chops, is less of a concern than Barrymore, in my opinion, not to mention not knowing if the script is any good. The film supposedly goes back years before the documentary and tells the story off how the Beale’s went from being prominent socialites to reclusive hermits living in a rundown estate in Long Island. The film hits HBO in April of 2009. Keep reading »

Poll: What Was Your Favorite “Chick Flick” Of 2008?

I’m having a chick flick kind of weekend. So far I’ve watched “Definitely, Maybe,” “Rachel Getting Married,” and, now, “27 Dresses.” It got me thinking about all of the chick flicks we reviewed this year. So… Keep reading »

Eight Movies That Changed Their Original Endings

It’s no secret that movie endings can make or break the audience’s reaction. After we’ve been sitting there for a couple of hours, completely engrossed in the storyline, we want an ending that gives us resolution and satisfaction. The film industry recognizes this and that’s why they offer pre-screenings of films to gauge people’s reactions. When they respond unfavorably to a particular aspect, such as the ending, the movie is sent back to production for retooling. Or sometimes what seems great on paper doesn’t work on the big screen. Having to alter the ending actually happens more than you’d think, even to movies that have become legendary. Would these films be so popular or famous if the creators had stuck with the original endings? Keep reading »
