“Transform Me,” the latest entry in the crowded reality TV show market, may actually bring something new to the field. Each half-hour episode features a subject badly in need of a makeover—inside and out. Who better to perform this task than three women who grew up feeling that the person they were on the inside didn’t match the person they were on the outside. That’s right, this time the fearless makeover team is comprised of three ... Read More
Flicks about girl bands often follow the same trajectory: rebellious young women wanna skip town on the high heels of their rock ‘n’ roll dreams, but men tell them it’s impossible because “girls can’t rock.” Through a series of montages, the band ultimately gets good enough to prove they deserve a chance. And once given that big break, they launch headlong into all the pitfalls of fame. Think Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, ... Read More
Yesterday Kotex launched a new ad campaign lampooning, well, itself. The first ad for U by Kotex parodies the super slo-mo, twirling in circles, running on the beach, practicing ballet in white spandex, pristinely clean genre of femcare ads that have been advertising staples for decades. The commercial is funny, smart, snarky—it’s already got people talking, tweeting, blogging, posting. It’s a step in the right direction. But the hill it’s ... Read More

The Girl With The Dragon TattooDirected by Niels Arden Oplev (Music Box Films) I’m just going to say this up front: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo—a new film coming out this Friday based on the first volume of late Swedish author Stieg Larsson’s enormously popular “Millennium” trilogy—is the best female epic revenge saga since Kill Bill. The story is suspenseful, violent, and dark as its two main characters—the socially ... Read More
  "When I saw Madonna in a corset for the first time, I was like, 'Hey, I did that first.' " --Cherie Currie, lead singer of The Runaways, to the New York Times     The much anticipated Runaways biopic opens in New York this week.  And it's cool that people are talking about them so much because, all Madonna-Runaways career comparisons aside (theirs-- short and somewhat managed, hers--long and self-propelled) they really did start something. ...
