13 Reasons To Be Best Friends With A Ghost

A couple weeks ago I saw a sappy romantic movie with my friend Kevin. I won’t tell you which movie at the risk of spoiling it for you, but at the end of this sappy romantic movie, the main character finds out that her best friend was actually a ghost. I was totally thrown off…

First Look: Watch The Deliciously Campy Teaser Trailer For “The Bling Ring”

Someone up there must be looking out for me, because there are so many amazing movies about teenagers behaving badly in my future! As if I wasn’t already psyched enough about “Spring Breakers” hitting theaters on the 22nd, the first teaser trailer for “The Bling Ring,” the Sofia Coppola-directed film based on the true tale

Winona And Amelia’s Guide To Obsessively Tracking Down Clothes You See In Movies And TV Shows

So, a couple weeks ago I was watching the TV show “Happy Endings” (which, if you’re not watching it yet, please stay tuned for my vaguely threatening 10,000 word essay about why you should be), and the super stylish character Jane made a brief appearance in a cobalt blue toggle coat. As soon as I…

The First Full-Length Trailer For Spring Breakers Is Seriously Nuts

The long-awaited “Spring Breakers” trailer has hit the web, and nothing I say could even come close to doing it justice. Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine star in Harmony Korine’s latest vehicle as four bored college students who will do anything to go ham on spring break, and you can count…

Etsy Spotlight: 11 Artsy Movie Posters

Once you move out of your college dorm room, it’s generally frowned upon to plaster your walls with crinkled “Animal House” posters. You can get around the stigma by putting your movie posters in ornate frames (which is what I did with my beloved “Spice World” poster) or you can show your love for your…

New App Rewards People For Not Texting During Movies

Today in “brilliant ideas that only exist because people are awful,” the most popular movie theater chain in the world, Cinemark, has debuted a new app to dissuade moviegoers from texting during movies. Here’s how it works: when a movie starts, people are prompted to use the Cinemark app to put their phones into “Cinemode.”…

Robert Pattinson Thinks A Walrus Might Spice Up The “Twilight” Sex Scenes

“I would put [the sex scene] the last day of the schedule, [and] say, ‘Listen, I’ve got to have a closed set. It’s really, really important. No one can see the monitors or anything,’ and then just put like a walrus in or something.”
Robert Pattinson responds to a question from BBC Radio 1…

7 Majorly Anxiety-Producing Movies

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. Horror is about the thin boundary between the outside and the inside being broken — both literally, as in the piercing of skin, and metaphorically, as in the destruction of…

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). But over the years I’ve found that even if you avoid the horror genre altogether, there are plenty of…

Finally! A Rom-Com Where The Woman Isn’t Begging A Guy To Marry Her

I feel like romantic comedies are always about a woman who’s trying to get hitched, and a guy who’s resisting (except for, I guess, “Runaway Bride”). So I’m really excited for the new Lizzy Caplan movie, “Save the Date,” where — gasp! — she plays a woman who turns down her boyfriend’s proposal. Caplan wa…

Must See: Amy Heckerling’s New Movie, “Vamps”

The trailer for “Vamps,” Amy Heckerling’s first movie with Alicia Silverstone since “Clueless,” is here — and it looks really funny. It stars Silverstone and Krysten Ritter as two vampires looking for love in all the wrong places. And the dude who plays Matthew Crawley on “Downton Abbey” plays Ritter’s love interest. I. Can’t. Wait!

We Want To Go To There: London’s Hot Tub Cinema

I love movies. I love hot tubs. I love champagne. I love rooftop parties. I love London. Hot Tub Cinema just happens to be a combination of all of those things, so obviously I want to get in on the action. For the past year, Hot Tub Cinema has been putting on rooftop hot tu…

A History Of Onscreen Women And Abortion

Abortion has been a hot-button topic for years, but it’s been resurrected as one of the most talked about issues this election season with debates about Planned Parenthood and Todd Akin’s “legitimate rape” remark still ringing in our ears. The heated political and religious discourse on the issue of whether or not abortion should be…

“Twilight” Is Heartily Improved By Bad Lip-Reading

Sorry, Twihards, but “Twilight” is really terrible. Which is why I love this “Bad Lip-Reading” version of the movie so much. I mean, it can’t really get more ridiculous than it already is, can it? [YouTube]…

Beauty Cues: The “Bachelorette” Girls Break It Down, Minus The Blow

So this movie “Bachelorette” just came out, and I’m so ambivalent as to whether or not I should see it. On one hand, I love (in no manner of order other than how they are credited on iMDB) Lizzy Caplan, Isla Fisher, Kirsten Dunst, James Marsden, Adam Scott, and Rebel Wilson. On the other, I…

Skrillex — Yes, Skrillex — To Star In A Remake Of “The Crow”

What fresh hell is this? It appears that wee Corey Feldman lookalike and dub step perpetrator Skrillex is set to star in a remake of “The Crow.” The cursed 1994 film starring Brandon Lee is probably as well known for Lee’s accidental on-set death as it is for being a cult-fave among comic book fans.

Spotted! 26 Years After Her “Day Off,” Sloane Peterson Is Still Killing It

Let’s talk teen idols. I was born a few years after “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” came to be, but that didn’t stop me from idolizing the hell out of Sloane Peterson. The fringed white leather jacket! Those doe eyes! That cavalier side-part flip! She was, and continues to be, the coolest. I wonder almost every…
