I was lucky enough to attend one of the final LCD Soundsystem shows this past spring, and it was nothing short of a religious experience. Perched above the stage at Terminal 5, my friends and I were entranced as LCD frontman James Murphy delivered a raucous two-hour dance punk sermon, swimming through a powerful set list of love, lust, pain and forgiveness. The new film “Shut Up and Play the Hits” chronicles Murphy’s decision to end the band, the band’s final shows and the personal moments of the very private frontman. I can’t wait to watch all over again. [YouTube]

You know, I’m generally not into the beefcake look, but I would make an exception for Channing Tatum. EW.com just posted a few new, exclusive photos from the upcoming film “Magic Mike,” the seemingly highbrow film from director Steven Soderbergh about male strippers, and I suddenly have a hankering to do laundry. On Channing’s impeccable washboard abs. What? I have to lust after someone since I am banned from popping a girl boner over you know who. Check out a few more photos at the link! [EW.com]

Jennifer Westfeldt is some kind of voodoo witch doctor sorcerer. Not only has she captured the heart of Jon Hamm, but she has also written and directed a romantic comedy with an ensemble cast and, you guys, you’re not going to slit your wrists while watching it. “Friends With Kids” comes out March 9 and stars Jennifer, her manpiece, Kristen Wiig (!), Maya Rudolph (!), Chris O’Dowd (!!!!!), Adam Scott (!), and Edward Burns (!!!!!). That’s like half of the “Bridesmaids” crew, which is why it actually looks funny. Goddamn, woman. How did you keep Katharine Heigl from being cast in this? Burning crosses and heads on stakes?  [YouTube]

We couldn’t be more excited about the new Wes Anderson movie, “Moonrise Kingdom,” about a boy and girl who run away from home together. The cast includes Anderson mainstays Bill Murray and Jason Schwartzman, along with Edward Norton, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Bruce Willis. But why I’m really, really excited? My friend Jessica Hische was tapped to do the movie titles! She’s a stellar graphic designer and typographist and I am mega-mega stoked for her. So check out this adorable trailer and pay close attention to the type. [Indiewire]

8 Kids Movies That Lied to Us

Production companies have made millions giving children exactly what they want: whether it’s to be an adult, get rich, or meet David Bowie, indulging childhood fantasies is a hallmark of family films.

Imagine the trauma those same children undergo when they’re forced to realize that being an adult sucks, getting rich entails smuggling drugs in your ass, and meeting David Bowie entails smuggling drugs in your ass. Well, as children scarred by the false expectations set up in films, we say no more! Below, eight movies that are begging to be unmasked for the dangerously optimistic propaganda they really are. Read more…
