Y’all, I just watched all of the UK series “The Fall” this past weekend and Jamie Dornan plays a serial killer in it and oh my god, I think he is going to perfect as Christian Grey in this sure-to-be weird and kinky movie. Dakota Johnson certainly is doing her best timid mouse impression on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. I like the way Jamie is gripping that tie. Hot hot hot.
“Blue Is The Warmest Color,” a French film starring Lea Seydoux and Adele Exarchopoulos, about teenaged lesbians, won this year’s Palme d’Or at Cannes. But what do actual lesbians think about the sex as depicted onscreen? In this NSFW video (just wear headphones), real lesbians give a “meh” review. “Kind of like an infomercial for a kitchen product,” said one woman. “There were moments that wanted you to barf up your Bolognese,” said another. And: “In lesbian sex there’s a whole lot more crying.” My own BFF saw “Blue Is The Warmest Color” last week and said it was pretty hot but that the “scissoring” was “obviously the idea of some straight guy.” Got it. No scissoring. I will probably stick with the French graphic novel by Julie Maroh, Blue Is A Hot Color, upon which it is based. [YouTube]
Think about it. The majority of female-centric movies — films about women and/or for women — are about the loss, pursuit of and eventual attainment of romantic love. Believe me, I love a good teary chick flick or cheesy romantic comedy, but it says something that I am surprised when a movie marketed towards women is not primarily about the main female character’s relationship with a man. And I’m surprised and delighted when that movie is instead about her relationship with other women. The following gallery of films (which is by no mean’s exhaustive!) are not necessarily entirely about female friendship, but have women’s relationships with each other at the forefront of the story. Passing the Bechdel Test with flying colors are…
Activities are wonderful, but sometimes, it’s fine to want to shut the world out for a couple of days, and make some serious time for you. Don’t be afraid of FOMO, either. There will always be another party, another pub crawl, another picnic. The time you’ll spend indulging in the things you want to do, alone, are well worth it. Here’s a handy list of awesome things to do this weekend!

YouTube yanked an explicit trailer for Lars Von Triers’ latest film, “Nymphomaniac,” in which Shia LaBeouf (or, er, his body double) performs oral sex on an actress, citing an abuse of the site’s rules on sexual content. The very NSFW trailer, called “Little Organ School,” has got actress Stacy Martin getting eaten out by LaBeouf and fucking another male actor … and some random leopards and organ music. It’s just one of five teaser trailers von Trier has released. After briefly being removed from YouTube, it was reposted with a warning. But don’t worry, we ripped the NSFW clip for you little minxes, so you can watch it here! [Guardian UK]
Attention “Veronica Mars” fans! Kristen Bell and Co. have been busy filming the flick, which raised some of its funds on Kickstarter, and they’re finally ready to show the show’s loyal following a preview of what to expect.

Despite successfully killing all their fellow tributes in “The Hunger Games,” Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark are not done kicking ass and taking names. In “Catching Fire,” Katniss and Peeta are back in the arena for the Quarter Quell, when past winners of the Hunger Games compete against each other. In this final trailer for the film, which opens November 22, we finally get a glimpse at the arena, some of the amazing costumes, and those freaky Jabberjays. But why, why, why is there no Finnick?!
The best part of last night’s Edward Norton-hosted “Saturday Night Live” was this digital short, a mock trailer for the Wes Anderson-directed horror flick, “The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders.” It features all of the classic Wes Anderson tropes: actors like Owen Wilson, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tilda Swinton, and Danny Glover; a pair of precocious children; cutesy, diorama-like sets; an array of artfully presented weapons, like a picture of Edith Piaf and a protractor; a totally twee plot; and, of course, a stop-motion mouse. Only this time, a scary murderer is on the loose. Watch above!
Let’s be real: horror movie boyfriends are kind of dumb.
From wanting to have sex in the woods, to their leaving the basement door unlocked, to not keeping bullets in their gun, it’s almost as if these chuckleheads don’t realize they’re in a horror movie!
