12 Quirky Throwback Halloween Movies That Won’t Terrify You

Hocus Pocus

Sometimes, instead of scaring yourself half to death with the “The Shining” and “American Horror Story,” you’d rather just kick back and get lost in the nostalgia of an old-school teen movie or rom com that just happens to be about witches. After all, Halloween doesn’t have to be terrifying to be fun! Here are 12 magic-tastic flicks from the ’80s and ’90s (some of which are awesomely bad) to help you get your holiday spirit on this Halloween weekend.

Weekend Shut-In Worksheet: See "This Is Where I Leave You," Rock Out To Foxygen & Make Some Hybrid Desserts

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! Keep reading »

5 Reasons Everyone Needs To See “Dear White People”

"Dear White People" Movie Trailer
And Now For Some Stupid Responses...

Sundance Film Festival breakout “Dear White People” is making waves in more ways than one. The feature-length debut of director Justin Simien bowed with a strong opening in limited release last week and hopes to pick up steam as it begins its rollout in wider release this weekend, boosted by a strong, eye-catching social media campaign that hopes to raise awareness about the film and get people talking about the issues it addresses. One Funny or Die-esque clip to promote the movie posits “racism insurance” for white people after a seemingly pleasant conversation about “Game of Thrones” goes very wrong.

n the wake of Ferguson and Trayvon Martin, the Indiegogo-funded movie is an incredibly important cinematic moment for Americans, a college-set “Do the Right Thing” for the social media era. Whereas Spike Lee’s tour de force helped generate a dialogue about race at a time when police violence was becoming the norm, Simien’s film recognizes that we’re still dealing with the same cultural baggage over two decades later. It’s a movie that everyone should not only see, but encourage everyone else to see. Here’s some good reasons why. Keep reading »

Is Jena Malone Playing A Female Robin In “Batman Vs. Superman”?

Is Jena Malone Playing A Female Robin In "Batman Vs. Superman"?

I am very meh on the thought of Ben Affleck playing the latest iteration of Batman — I don’t think he’s the best actor, though I suppose Batman/Bruce Wayne does have a rather wooden personality, and I also just don’t get why the world needs so many Batmans anyway. But I might be to get a little bit excited about this new reboot if it turns out to be true that instead of a male actor playing Batman’s sidekick Robin, actress Jena Malone is stepping into the role. For starters, Jena Malone is rad. Now she can act. But secondly, HELL YES to a female Robin. Malone will reportedly play Carrie Kelly, aka the female Robin appearing in the alternate universe of “The Dark Knight Returns.” [Variety]

9 Signs You’re Watching A Nicholas Sparks Movie

http://www.dailydot.com/opinion/signs-youre-watching-nicholas-sparks-movie/?utm_content=9%20signs%20you%27re%20watching%20a%20Nicholas%20Sparks%20movie&utm_medium=syndication&utm_source=The%20Frisky&utm_name=the_frisky

Today, “The Best of Me” hits theaters nationwide, the ninth Nicholas Sparks adaptation to see release (and with two more in development, to boot). A Sparks adaptation has become as perennial and inevitable an event as the changing of seasons, giving appealing blond actresses and chiseled hunks paychecks for years now. The Internet has thrown continuous shade at Sparks’s novels and the movies based on them alike for the many similarities shared among every single one, and with “The Best of Me,” Sparks has actually doubled down, offering the same star-crossed lovers at two different ages for maximum tissue-clutching emotional impact, because sadness works best in bulk.
