Will the New Kurt Cobain Doc Spur More Sexist Hate for Courtney Love?

I DVR’d Montage of Heck and watched it a day after it premiered on HBO. I waited partly out of dread. Everything I’ve read about the Kurt Cobain documentary cast it as the most through and fascinating depiction of him ever—largely due to unprecedented access to home movies, journals, and a clutch of his Dr Demento- » 5/06/15 8:00pm 5/06/15 8:00pm

Optimist Christian Bale Hopes For a Black Moses in 'a Few Decades'

​Beyond the Lights Exposes the Music Industry's Woman Problem

As a music writer for about 10 years now, I've met a lot of female artists who had no idea who they really were. They were young and their personas were the outcome of great outsourcing—their clothing, photos, lyrics and overall direction never their decision to make. In pursuing their passion for singing, they became… » 11/12/14 2:00pm 11/12/14 2:00pm

​Watch the First Two Minutes of the New "Veronica Mars" Movie

The Veronica Mars movie won't be released in theaters (and online!) until March 14, but the benevolent powers that be (lol Warner Bros.) have posted the first two minutes of the movie.

Did Stephen Moyer Accidentally Spill the Beans on a True Blood Movie?

Let us ponder this rumor with a quietly shitting Eric Northman. If you've hung in there with True Blood this far, congratulations — you have the television stamina of a silverback gorilla, which I guess means you have a lot of stamina. Your dedication to a series that often oscillates between frenzied, nonsensical… » 1/11/14 5:45pm 1/11/14 5:45pm

There is a Rom Com Coming Out Called Jewtopia

Yeah, Lady Gaga and Terry Richardson Are Definitely Making a Movie

Rumors surfaced this summer that noted hipster greaseball photographer Uncle Terry would be making a feature-length documentary film about Lady Gaga, after he followed her peeing, doing yoga, bathing in glitter and what have you on tour for 10 months last year in order to produce 350 pages of glossy hedonism to hawk… » 12/26/12 6:20pm 12/26/12 6:20pm

Carrie Underwood Will Play Maria in The Sound of Music: The Stages of…

NBC has just announced that country singer and American Idol winner Carrie Underwood will portray Maria Von Trapp — the role originally played to perfection by the radiant Julie Andrews — in a TV remake of The Sound of Music. There are no words for what we are feeling about this atrocity. Instead: the Kübler-Ross… » 11/30/12 7:45pm 11/30/12 7:45pm
