Jesus Christ — what the hell is going on in these trailers for The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story? Apparently, Zack had the power to freeze time outside of the show: And in the second trailer, we find out Slater sweat a lot, Screech punched people and, well, everyone...

Song of the Week: ‘Ride For You’ by Danity Kane

The end of the world is nigh. Danity Kane has officially broken up…for the second (or is it third?) time. Actually, we already knew that the band was going through a bunch of drama and group members were bickering with each other and dropping like flies. I mean, has any...

It’s been four days since the world learned that Robin Williams passed away. I found out through Facebook, of course. I read a headline that said, “Robin Williams Dead at 63.” I gasped in disbelief. So I immediately Googled his name and sure enough, news started popping up about his...

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For Movie Review’

It’s hard to believe that it’s been nine years since Robert Rodriguez co-directed the movie adaptation of the graphic novel Sin City with the creator of the noir black and white opus, Frank Miller. The interpretation was a literal comic frame by comic frame translation of Miller’s pages, giving us delicious monochromatic eye candy with...

‘Expendables III’: The One Where Sylvester Stallone Fights a Building

Look at the picture above. Is that from Expendables I, II or III? The answer is all of the above. Well, not really…but I imagine that it can be. Confession: I have never seen an Expendables movie. So when I went into Expendables III, I was worried that I would be lost. I was sure...

And Now Here’s Alison Brie as ‘Muffy the Vampire Slayer’ Featuring Jennifer Lawrence

In 2007, there was a pilot called Not Another High School Show featuring the magical Alison Brie as the Muffy the Vampire Slayer as well as American treasure Jennifer Lawrence. I never heard of this until now and I wanted to share this cobbled clip of the show. (P.S. Lawrence’s appearance is very short, so...
My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About 'The Giver'

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘The Giver’

Pleasantville meets Divergent. That’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the trailer for The Giver, the newest in the YA novel-turned-sci-fi movie cannon. The novel was written in 1993 by Lois Lowry and from what I have read, the movie stays in line with the source material. It tells the story of...

Remember When Emma Stone Paid Homage to Lauren Bacall in ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’?

It’s been a sad couple of days, folks. First, we had to wrap our head around Robin Williams dying and just yesterday, it was announced that the Golden Age Hollywood icon Lauren Bacall has died as well. You may know her from classic films like To Have and Have Not, How to Marry a Millionaire,...

Song of the Week: ‘Me and My Girlfriend’ by 2pac

On Tuesday, I will celebrate my one week anniversary of going to the Beyonce and Jay Z On the Run Tour. I know you’re as excited as I am (BTW: for a full analysis of this spectacle listen to me gab about it on a very special episode of the Bitch Talk podcast). At their...
'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': A Successful Disappointment

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’: A Successful Disappointment

I don’t like taking notes during movies. I’ve learned that writing something legible in the dark is nearly impossible. Rogue words like “STUPID” and “RIDICULOUS” and “I LOVE ASEUBEIWR” are all over the page and make absolutely no sense — but it’s quite entertaining to read. With Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, I felt that I...

This is the Best Instagram Conversation About Jay Z and Beyonce’s ‘On the Run’ Tour You Will Ever Read

Last night, I witnessed the spectacle that was Jay Z and Beyonce‘s On the Run Tour at San Francisco’s AT&T Ballpark. Naturally, I was screaming “DIVORCE” after each song.

Matthew Crawley From ‘Downton Abbey’ is Polite, Handsome and Crazy in New Trailer for ‘The Guest’

HOT DAMN. When did Matthew Crawley get all military-hot and handsome? And when I say Matthew Crawley, I am referring to actor Dan Stevens. He has left Downton Abbey behind to be the frontman for the thriller, The Guest, directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett. They just happen to be the team...
Song of the Week: 'Caramel' by City High featuring Eve

Song of the Week: ‘Caramel’ by City High featuring Eve

The defining lyrics to “Caramel” by the early 21st century R&B trio City High are: “5’5″ with brown eyes/Smile like the sunrise.” I always like to think those lyrics were addressed to me even though I am not 5’5″…but I sure as hell have a smile like the sunrise. This was a period of time...

My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About ‘Get On Up’

For me, it’s hard not to think about James Brown without thinking of Eddie Murphy’s SNL impression of him. So let me share that with you: My knowledge of James Brown does not go beyond your basic pop culture fare. I know that he is an icon of soul and funk. I know that he...

Why I Would Rather Be a Member of the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Than ‘The Avengers’

A couple of weeks ago, I saw the seven minute preview of Guardians of the Galaxy and at the time, I wasn’t excited by what I saw. I didn’t say that out loud because I was afraid that I would get crucified. But now that I have actually seen the movie, I feel like I...
