  Anastasia Reskoss (20) and Quinton Dehar (23) are a French couple making headlines for the dolla-dolla-bills they’ve been dropping trying to morph into the human forms of Barbie and Ken. Theirs is a classic story of boy meets girl: eyes met from across deck at a yacht party and they knew in that moment they had found the person with whom they would get extensive plastic surgery and live happily ever after… It kinda makes me wish I had someone to never grow old with!  The...

I didn’t know what to think when I first started watching Difret. I knew that Angelina Jolie Pitt was an executive producer and, admittedly, her reputation as a third world sugar momma slightly put me off. I wanted to watch without bias, but wondered about the possibility of back-handed racism that is always a part of the "white savior" complex.  To my pleasant surprise, I was compelled by the characters and the story they inhabit, all taking place in rural Ethiopia’s open fields, whose pastel...

Three friends sign up for a game show - but once they arrive for filming, they have to ride a terrifying haunted elevator to an abandoned warehouse that contains all their worst fears. The game show hosts, identical twins dressed all in black, manipulate the monsters, ghosts and serial killers that torment the friends - and the elevator is leaving soon. This isn’t the premise for a creative horror movie or a hilarious SNL sketch, but a REAL. LIFE. GAME SHOW. It’s called Hellevator, and it...

The exact number vary, but many studies find that women make up a drastically low number of film directors. One study (via Variety) puts it at 7%; another (via Forbes) at only 4.1%. Most people would struggle to name ten female directors - there’s Kathryn Bigelow, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay, Angelina Jolie….and…well...hmmm. Of course, there are many, many women who direct films but haven’t reached household name recognition yet.

  What. What. WHAT. Laverne Cox will play Frank-N-Furter, the sexually intoxicating and incredibly bizarre alien, in the new live TV production of Rocky Horror Picture Show. We are beyond pumped. Before all the diehard Tim Curry fans get up on their high horse to tell us that nobody can do the role like he did, let us remind you all: Hollywood has a long,  history of casting straight, cis talent to play LGBT characters; one of the latest examples is Elle Fanning playing a teenage trans-boy...
