"Mulder, it's me. Are you ready?" The above was tweeted by Gillian Anderson earlier last week to her past co-star David Duchovny. The gods have spoken and after a thirteen year commercial break Anderson and Duchovny will be working with FOX to create six new episodes of the X-Files! Yes, we're all a bit nervous about how this is going to go down, but to be honest each of us who were birthed while their parents were watching the cult-favorite began ...

These heroines kicked ass from 1998 to 2005, winning two Emmy awards and several animation awards along the way, and now they are revamping the show, taking on ... Read More
We all have those girls we're especially tight with. They're the ones we can always rely on to be there, to be honest and fair. That heartwarming motif is what I thought director Celine Sciamma ( Water Lillies, Tomboy ) would cast a fresh, new light upon in her french film Girlhood.
