You're Going to Want to Start Watching 'Transparent'

You’re Going to Want to Start Watching ‘Transparent’

Let’s be honest. The biggest draw of Jill Soloway‘s (Six Feet Under, United States of Tara) new Amazon original series, Transparent is the fact that we get to see Jeffrey Tambor in women’s clothing. Not because it’s a joke, but because it is unexpected and unusual from a man we...
A More Honest Look at the New 'Mockingjay' Rebel Warriors Posters

A More Honest Look at the New ‘Mockingjay’ Rebel Warriors Posters

New posters for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I were unveiled yesterday and they give us some rebellion realness. The posters give supporting characters a moment to shine (notice there isn’t a Katniss poster…yet) as the “Rebel Warriors.” They look cool, but I edited them with new and improved character...

Chatting with Mark Duplass and Charlie McDowell About ‘The One I Love’

Song of the Week: 'Anaconda' by Nicki Minaj

Song of the Week: ‘Anaconda’ by Nicki Minaj

This is the kind of stuff you would have seen on BET Uncut back in the day. Sure, there is plenty of floor humping and booty for days and a lap dance that sucks all the remaining innocence and preciousness out of Drake, but this music video is how all music videos should be: low...
My Rambling, Unstructured Thoughts About 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'

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

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...

Time Out! Let’s Watch These Ridonkulous Trailers for ‘The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story’

Jesus Christ — what the hell is going on in these trailers for The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story?

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 group from the Making the...

‘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...

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...
