It's been in the works for quite a while, and it's finally here! "Poptarts" is a twice-monthly podcast hosted by BUST Magazine editors Emily Rems and Callie Watts that celebrates women in pop culture. The first half of each episode is devoted to a hot topic in entertainment, and in the second half, a segment called "Whatcha Watchin'?," Callie and Emily dig into all the shows, movies, books, music, videos, and podcasts they've enjoyed since the last episode, and either praise or pan each experience. In the first episode,...
Kelly Reichardt is a good example of an indie filmmaker who seems to be edging towards wider recognition (at least where film critics are concerned.) Her films such as Wendy & Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff, and Old Joy often receive critical acclaim and are frequently part of the film festival circuit. Reichardt grew up in Miami, Florida, about as different a landscape as you can get from the lush flora and fauna of Oregon, where many of her films are set. She developed an interest in photography...

  Last year, I was harassed by a group of “Anti-Social Justice Warrior” trolls for my feminist beliefs. The trolls infiltrated the feminism Facebook group I admin and when I caught on and started to ban them, the harassment began. Messages soon flooded my Facebook inbox, and the trolls even began to migrate to other platforms including Twitter and email. I wrote about some of my experience for Ravishly, but after that article was published, the harassment got even worse — the trolls contacted my mom...
Harry Potter star Evanna Lynch is back on the silver screen, in a new movie released in the US this Friday, February 17th.

In an interview with BUST, the Irish actress talks about drawing confidence from the role of Emily, moving away from Luna, and the ‘bad bitches’ she hopes to play in 2017. My Name Is...
  A United Kingdom
Directed by Amma Asante
Out February 174 out of 5 boobs A United Kingdom is, at its heart, a gorgeous love story about a two people from radically different worlds. But like director Amma Asante’s previous film, Belle, it’s packed with political subtext that’s all too relevant to today’s world. Seretse Khama (David Oyelowo) is a law student in London when he meets Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike) at a dance; they’re instantly smitten, but there’s much more working against them than just the everyday racism...
Since Election Day last November, Democrats have been lobbying for Trump’s impeachment with a list of grounds deeming him unequipped for office. Despite increasing numbers of people getting on board with them against this farce of an administration, the situation seems improbable. In usual fashion, the Full Frontal queen Samantha Bee stepped in to demonstrate this improbability in the most lucid of ways. Paul Ryan, the House Speaker, previously condemned any notions of extreme vetting or an executive order. At the end of January, however,...
On Wednesday morning, writer and director Richard Curtis cast a bizarre, Christmas-tree shaped beacon of light into our dark, crumbling world: Love Actually is coming back for a sequel. According to Curtis, the film's follow-up comes not as a feature-length movie, but as a short film for this year's Red Nose Day telethon, which raises money for the charity Comic Relief. Beginning in 1988, Red Nose Day achieves mainstream success annually in the U.K.; more recently, NBC has broadcast the telethon to U.S. viewers. The Love...
If, this past year, you've found yourself questioning whether America was the subject of a cruel and unusual Ashton Kutcher prank, you are not alone. FX's hit thriller series American Horror Story is planning to capitalize on this phenomenon with its upcoming seventh season. On Wednesday, AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy made a surprise announcement on Andy Cohen’s show, Watch What Happens Live, stating, “Well, I don’t have a title, but the season that we begin shooting in June is going to be about the election that we...

2017! What a year, huh? If this year tried to be a beverage, it would be spoiled milk mixed with cherry cough syrup. If this year tried to be a person, it would actually just be a cartoon drawing of the devil. With cartoon flames. And here’s some really good news: It’s only February! If this year was a week, it would still be Monday! Want even more good news? Yes, I thought so, so I put together this little list just for you.1. When...
