  It’s officially the run-up to Christmas, and you know what that means: TIME TO BUST OUT ALL OF THE OLD SCHOOL CHRISTMAS FILMS!!! One problem though… you kind of have to save the It’s A Wonderful Life-style old movies until minimum Christmas Eve Eve. So that means you’re stuck watching whatever new film Hallmark has crapped out this year, because the only old films available are the 1938 version of Christmas Carol, which is a total classic and all…but it’s also slow as f and it’s not this?     Truly...

I, Tonya
Directed by Craig Gillespie
Out December 8 Director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) takes us back to the infamous ’90s rivalry between figure skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding in I, Tonya. In case you’ve never been exposed to pop culture, in the weeks before the 1994 Olympics, an attacker hit Kerrigan in the leg with a baton at practice—an attack that was then blamed (rightly or wrongly) on Kerrigan’s competitor, Harding. Now, in this dark but ultimately sympathetic dramedy, Gillespie takes us through...

    Welcome back to our weekly roundup of women-centered pop culture picks! This week brings us the long-awaited release of the Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya (which I loooved), the return of The Crown, and Tiffany Haddish's first book. Again, we haven’t watched/listened to/read these ourselves, but when we have, we’ll link to a review or refer to it if it’s in print. Before we go on, I want to remind you about the BUST Craftacular in Brooklyn this weekend, where along with over 150 vendors...
  This week on Broad City, Abbi and Ilana celebrate another anniversary of their friendship. On Abbi and Ilana's giant faces: Lindsay: Abbi has an Ilana body pillow. Who would you get a body pillow of? Danielle: Bruce Springsteen. Or Bruce Springsteen’s dog. Lindsay: What does his dog look like? Danielle: I dunno. Lindsay: It’s not a body pillow! It’s just a giant face! Danielle: Why is she bringing the giant face? Lindsay: I don’t know, but I love it. During a commercial break: Lindsay: Hold on, I have to control my dogs. Ugh, I stepped...
  Rock n’ roll fans, listen up! Today, Blondie (and Joan Jett!) released their new music video for “Doom or Destiny” on i-D. The song, featuring Jett's background vocals, is the opening track and fourth single off of their eleventh studio album, Pollinator. “We wanted to comment on the bizarre state of media and news in the current political ‘idiocracy’ we are watching play out in real time,” Debbie Harry, Blondie’s frontwoman, said in a press release. She described the video to i-D as “the most openly...
    Laura Terruso took to the stage at AFI Fest 2017 to introduce her directorial debut Fits and Starts. As she cautiously walked up the platform, Terruso motioned towards her feet, which were pocketed in long stemmed heels. According to Terruso, she wanted to look the part at her Hollywood premiere. As she grasped the railing with both hands and descended down the stairs, she left the audience laughing because despite looking the part, Terruso’s entrance was anything but Hollywood. But her entrance, whether it was...

    At a 20-year anniversary celebration of Wag The Dog yesterday, John Oliver did what John Oliver does best: calling attention to the shitty actions of other men. According to The Washington Post, while moderating a discussion panel, Oliver addressed a sexual harassment accusation made against Dustin Hoffman by Anna Graham Hunter in early November. “This is something we’re going to have to talk about because … it’s hanging in the air,” Oliver said.  A Hollywood Reporter article written by Anna Graham Hunter earlier this month details Hoffman’s...
  This weekend, Saoirse Ronan hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time in her career. Among the many highlights, she joined the women of SNL to sing a fun, cute song about some things that are not so fun and cute. In just three minutes, “Welcome to Hell” offers a crash course (and maybe, to some, a wake-up call) on the history of powerful men harassing and then silencing women. Dressed in metallic pinks and purples, Ronan, Cecily Strong, Aidy Bryant, and Kate McKinnon lick lollipops,...
