5 Reasons You Need To See “The Heat”

The new Sandra Bullock/Melissa McCarthy movie "The Heat" debuted in theaters this weekend, and killed it at the box office, despite getting so-so reviews from critics. I have no idea what those guys are talking about. This movie is funny. So funny. McCarthy and Bullock star as a cop and FBI agent,…

7 Fictional Father Figures Who Helped Raise Me

I've written before about why my dad is awesome, but looking back at my childhood, he definitely wasn't the only father figure in my life.

May was national fapping month, I sort of dropped the ball on this post but hey, does one ever stop fapping? I certainly don’t contain my fappetry to a single month of the year.

One Woman Director Out Of 20, Cannes? That’s Pretty Dismal

So we all know that there's a dearth of women in the movie-making business — just in case you're not up to speed there was a whole study done about it.  The best place to view this disparity is the Cannes Film Festival in France: of the 20 films competing for the top prize, the Palme…

The Rest Of Hollywood Is As Sexist As Seth MacFarlane

It's never really a good year for the Bechdel test.  But is it possible that things are degenerating for women in film? According to a study done by USC's Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism, the answer is yes. A study by Dr. Stacy L. Smith found that over the five…

Watch This: All Of 1999 Compressed Into 10 Minutes

It's been a really long time since I've thought about the song "If You Steal My Sunshine," the movie "Bicentennial Man" (shudder), or the Y2K scare, but this video forced me to confront all those 1999 memories--and many more--in exactly 10 minutes. Before you hit play, be warned that side effects may include involuntarily singing…

Life Dream Status: Backstreet Boys Approve Tell-All Documentary

When I was in 7th grade, I ordered an "All-Access Behind The Scenes BSB Experience" VHS tape from a Backstreet Boys fan club Geocities website, and it was composed mostly of footage of them eating quietly in their dressing rooms.

According to prominent horror critics, the things that scare us as a culture usually have a lot to do with whatever we repress and suppress.

20 Non-Horror Movies That Are Absolutely Terrifying

I never watch horror movies because I am a total scaredy-cat and it doesn't take much to give me serious nightmares (I slept in my brother's room for six months after seeing "Scream" in middle school).
