For the past week, women’s media has pretty much been dominated by talk of Lena Dunham’s new show “Girls.” But newsflash! There’s other crap going on! Like the fact that this year’s prestigious Cannes Film Festival features absolutely zero films by women. That’s right: of the 23 films up for Cannes’ Very Important Palm D’Or Award, zero were made by women. And in the Un Certain Regard category — reserved for films made by up-and-coming young directors — only two were made by women.

Congratulations, you’re engaged! But approximately 10 seconds after the ring has been placed on your finger, the interrogation from family, friends and coworkers begins: Have you found a dress? Religious or non-religious? How many bridesmaids? Where’s the bachelorette party? How about the honeymoon? How many people are you inviting?

And the biggest one of all: So, have you set a date?

The answer to that question is “No, not yet!” in the new romantic comedy “The Five-Year Engagement.” Tom and Violet, played by Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, find their engagement extended … and extended … and extended after they relocate to Michigan for Violet’s job. But why are long engagements so frowned upon anyway? There are plenty of perfectly good reasons for not rushing to the altar. Here are 10 off the top of our heads… Keep reading »

I think maybe, just maybe, Channing Tatum has a shot at becoming my Number One Dream Celebrity Boyfriend. That’s right. Ryan Gosling, you’re in trouble.  Keep reading »

One of the many reasons why I’m psyched to see “Snow White and the Huntsman” is that it actually seems to be as dark as the original Brothers Grimm fairy tale was written. While the story has been Disney-fied in a couple incarnations, “Snow White and the Huntsman” is a seriously grim and disturbing story — exactly the way it should be! In preparation for the movie’s release on June 1, we’re going to be giving you a little insight into the backstory behind some of the key characters in our “Not Your Children’s Fairy Tale” video series. We’ve already told you about how evil Queen Ravenna (played by Charlize Theron) is out to eat Snow White’s heart so she can attain immortality, but why is our heroine such a threat to her anyway? Here’s some background on Snow White herself. Keep reading »

The Katniss Everdeen Barbie

We admit it! We greeted the announcement of a “Hunger Games” Barbie with a little skepticism. Okay, a lot of skepticism. The secondary marketing for the movie (which took first place at the box office for the third weekend in a row this weekend, beating “Titanic‘s 3D” rerelease and yet another “American Pie” movie, grossing more than $450 million globally so far) has ridden a surprisingly satirical line by speaking to its audience as if they were citizens of the hedonistic, voyeuristic Capitol; casting those who would excitedly anticipate The Hunger Games as those who would excitedly anticipate the Hunger Games. 

A Katniss Barbie, however, seemed outside of that particular merchandizing plan. We feared the transformation of Katniss Everdeen into a Barbie doll in much the same way that Katniss is transformed into a dressed up Capitol plaything, but it appears what we’ve actually gotten looks more like an action figure than anything else.
