How Horny Are You Right Now, On A Scale Of 1 To 10?

Trash the “Twilight” franchise all you want, but they know how to build some sexual tension. Four movies in, Bella and Edward finally had sex — rough sex, actually! — and I can’t be the only one who got a little turned on. Here’s comedienne Julie Klausner hosting a “Twilight” horniness focus group to get to the bottom of just how sexy “Breaking Dawn, Part Two” will be. She’s a vampire now you guys. They’re body temperature is the same.  [NYMag.com]

7 Ways We’re All Bridget Jones

Attention, Bridget Jones fans: We are v. excited that a new installment of our favorite awkward heroine is in the works! Helen Fielding has written another chapter in the life of the quirky Brit, and the book is scheduled for an autumn 2013 release.

For the uninitiated, Bridget Jones Diary — the tale of a desperate yet endearing everywoman and her clumsy and often hilarious pursuit of true love (or at least a good date) — debuted in 1996 and quickly became and international bestseller and cultural phenom. Two movies followed, with Renee Zellweger as our quirky protagonist, and single 30-something women everywhere found a fumbling heroine they could finally relate too. It was in Bridget’s constantly adorable flaws — namely her fixation on her body image, awkward approach to dating and penchant for wallowing in her misery (who can forget her onscreen rendition of “All By Myself”?) that we wach saw a bit of ourselves. We are all Bridget Jones to some degree — whether that makes us uncomfortable or not. Here are a few examples…

The 10 Coolest Fictional Pets

You might think you have the greatest pet in the world, but that’s probably because you don’t watch much TV. Instead of a cat that secretly hates you, fictional pets can be dragons or loyal household animals who stick by your side as you step out into the great unknown, rather than eating the contents of your bathroom trashcan the second you’re out the door. We’ve compiled a list of the 10 coolest pets in fiction. Just don’t tell your real pet — they might get jealous that they’re not as awesome as these animal pals, and, if you own a cat, try to kill you in your sleep.

1. Grey Wind, “Game Of Thrones.” Robb of House Stark, the newly crowned King of the North, is feared not only for his prowess in battle and military strategy, but because of his awesome pet: a viciously loyal direwolf. Grey Wind has no qualms about chomping off a finger or three or even scaring the bejeezus out of the Kingslayer, Jamie Lannister. Where do we sign up to get one of these wolves? Read more…

10 Essential Movies & Documentaries About Cults

Something you may not know about me: I’m really into anything involving cults, save actually being in one. I can’t get enough of books, internet chat rooms where former members meet to discuss their stories, and, of course, movies and documentaries about cults, real or made up. Frankly, I wish there were more movies about cults, but consider this an essential list of the best ones out there. If there’s one I missed that you think is worthy of being on the top 10, please weigh in! Together, we can form a cult of cult obsessives.

John Cusack Making Film About Rush Limbaugh

Rush Limbaugh is getting the Hollywood treatment, courtesy of John Cusack. The (liberal) actor’s production company plans to start work next year on a movie about Limbaugh, with Cusack playing the leading role himself, reports AP. Except for the fact that Betty Thomas is directing, no other details are known. Limbaugh, though, will be sure to love this AP comparison: “Cusack is a slender, dark-haired 46-year-old, while Limbaugh is 61, balding and portly.” Read more…

13 Awesome Books Being Turned Into Movies

Nowadays, it seems like every movie that comes to the screen was adapted from a book. This can be very hit or miss for me but I always find myself curious about how the film will match up to the book. I’m also one of those people that MUST read the book before the movie comes out. Here are a few upcoming movies based on some of our favorite books, both new and old. Read more…
