Okay, yes, some people booed Ryan Gosling’s next movie, “Only God Forgives,” when it premiered at Cannes this week. But not everyone thinks the “Drive” followup from Nicholas Winding Refn is “a defecation” — it’s gotten a few good reviews too. The Hollywood Reporter called it “wicked cool entertainment.” So there, haters! Personally, I’m down to watch any movie that refers to Ryan Gosling’s cock. In this just released scene, Gosling’s character Julian hires a prostitute to be his date to dinner with his beyatch mom, played by Kristen Scott Thomas. She’s on to him though, and seizes the opportunity to tear him a new one, by insulting the size of his manhood. Mean. Check it out above! [The Daily Beast]
My boyfriend’s back! No, not my real boyfriend, but my fantasy magical unicorn boyfriend, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This time, he’s beefed up and thrown on a real thick Jersey accent to play the title character in “Don Jon,” a movie about a porn-addicted goomba who falls in love with a slightly questionable bangin’ Jerz chick (played by Scarlett Johannson). Can the love of a good woman get him to change his ways? (Spoiler alert: duh.) Both are playing a bit against type, which should be fun to watch. So check out the trailer for the movie — which JGL also wrote and directed — if only to see JGL sing along to Marky Mark’s “Good Vibrations.” Funky bunch, indeed. [YouTube]
On the surface, “Star Trek Into Darkness” certainly looks like a typical dude movie. It’s got huge explosions, spaceships, fighting, and futuristic weapons. Obviously we would have loved it even if it was the most manly movie in history, but after seeing it for ourselves we were surprised to discover that, in many ways, it’s actually a total chick flick. How is this possible, you ask? Let us count the ways… Keep reading »
In honor of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” which opens TO-FUCKING-DAY, I had planned on devoting this entire week to the series. STAR TREK WEEK, I was calling it, because I am creative. And then I got strep throat and was basically comatose in bed from Monday through Wednesday, returning yesterday to work quietly from my sickbed. Star Trek Week was ruined. OR WAS IT? See, having a week devoted to “Star Trek” on The Frisky is maybe a little odd, a little self-indulgent, but the bonus is that I can basically have it anytime I want, so Star Trek Week will go on next week, a week late, because like Jean Luc Picard, I am the Captain of this ship and I WILL MAKE IT SO.
In the meantime, “Star Trek Into Darkness” still opens TO-FUCKING-DAY, and while I already posted a spoiler-free review of the film, allow me to further encourage you to see it with these 10 sligggghtly spoiler-y hints about the film’s plot. And if that’s not enough for you, they are accompanied by GIFs of Benedict Cumberbatch, aka the World’s Sexiest Mole Rat, who plays the villain John Harrison in the film. Swoon. Keep reading »
That giant squeal you heard on Friday afternoon was the Internet learning that the movie version of “The Fault In Our Stars” had cast its Gus: 19-year-old Ansel Elgort. The Fault In Our Stars, for those of you not in-the-know, is an amazing YA novel by John Green about Hazel and Gus, two kids who fall in love in a support group for teens with cancer. It’s a five-hankie sobfest and a really good book. Shailene Woodley has already been cast as Hazel, a move we wholeheartedly approve.
Add it to your reading list and then learn all about Ansel Elgort, our newest crush … Keep reading »
Looking over Julia Stiles’ IMDB page is a reminder she’s more than just the woman we know and love from “10 Things I Hate About You.” Yeah, that movie was my everything during high school and college. But she’s had a looooong career doing different movies and TV. Whether you fell for her in “Dexter,” “Silver Linings Playbook” or “Save The Last Dance,” you have to agree Julia is a solid actress.
In her latest dark comedy, “It’s A Disaster,” Julia stars as Tracy, a woman who goes on her third date with Glen (played by David Cross) to brunch with all her coupled friends. More specifically, friends who are couples who are fighting. If that’s not an awkward enough premise for newcomer Glen, very quickly into the film there comes news that a national disaster is afoot. The phone lines go out, the windowframes all get taped up, and it’s time to start heavily drinking and/or air old grievances. It is a disaster in more ways than one … but it’s very funny.
I talked with Julia about the end of the world and the hazards of brunch and along the way learned she has a secret love of Spanish language television, including the Spanish version of “Judge Judy.” Who knew?!
Our Q&A, after the jump!

If you are old enough, you remember Jackée Harry from her turn on Saturday night sitcom “227.” But if you’re a little bit less old, you might remember her as the mom on “Sister Sister.” Whatever your reference point, I think we can all agree that Jackée has been wholly underutilized since the early ’90s, right? Well, not anymore. Some baby genius over at Screencrush designed 10 Jackée-themed movie posters in hopes that her agent will start returning her calls again. You guys, think about it. We’ve really been missing out on her wit, style and vocal modulations! A couple more posters after the jump! [Screencrush] Keep reading »
Last night, I had the supreme good fortune of being able to see an early screening of “Star Trek Into Darkness,” the latest “Star Trek” reboot from J.J. Abrams. You. Guys. It was so so so soooooo goooooooood. I am dying to talk to someone about it, but no one else I know has seen it yet and I refuse to be that asshole who ruins the movie — especially by revealing who the villain is — for my fellow Trekkies. That violates the Prime Directive of, like, fandom. Anyway, I need to purge my emotions about the film though, so I put together this utterly spoiler-free (I swear!) review of the movie presented in GIFs from “Star Trek: The Original Series.” Keep reading »
Okay, so, College Humor might be a year too late on the Manic Pixie Dream Girl hate, but this clip from Vag Magazine writer Leila Cohen-Miccio is still hella funny: dude hires a prostitute just to play the ukelele, find whimsy in a hotel bathroom and live in the moment. It’s really kind of demented and brilliant. [College Humor]
