Are you ready to feel old? Today is the 10th birthday of the movie Mean Girls. Are you ready to feel less old? The film is as relevant today as it ever was. It’s a rare day that passes without someone somewhere making reference to the eternal language of comic Tina Fey, and just this winter, we revealed some of the hilarious and eye-opening behind-the-scene facts shared by director Mark Waters. Lacey Chabert, who starred as second-in-command queen-bee ... Read More
HBO’s documentary on the life and accomplishments of Ann Richards is a wonderful tribute to the political maven. Through a series of interviews with Ann’s loved ones and colleagues—including her daughter Cecile Richards (who has been president of Planned Parenthood since 2006), former President Bill Clinton, Tom Brokaw, Nancy Pelosi, and members of her administration and campaign teams—producers Keith Patterson and Philip Schopper capture ...

Many creatives out there are trying to articulate the post-millennial hipster experience; from Lena Dunham’s Girls, to Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer’s Broad City, to more serious works like Benjamin Dickinson’s First Winter, or Tim Heidecker’s The Comedy. Then there’s City Baby, a recent film directed by David F. Morgan, which he also co-wrote with its star Cora Benesh. Despite the criticism (specifically from Bitch Magazine) of the ... Read More
The internet seemed to have a conniption over child actress Mara Wilson not wanting to appear in a Mrs. Doubtfire sequel.  My first question: What happened to Mara Wilson?  Let’s all feel old for a second: Mara Wilson is a grown-ass woman. She is 26 years old. So I did my research. I’ve followed her on Twitter and read her blog, Mara Wilson Writes Stuff and she is freaking hilarious. And an awesome writer; she writes for Cracked.com. She also ... Read More
I’m an illustration student – which is basically just an excuse to go see animated movies as an adult without children and not look creepy. So yes, that’s why I as a 21- year-old woman have intense opinions on todays animated features – especially when it comes to gender and race representation. Animated movies are feeding the creative parts of our children’s brains and it’s important to be critical of ... Read More
HBO will be debuting an incendiary documentary on the life and achievements of former Texas Governor Ann Richards, who passed away in 2007 at the age of 73 from esophageal cancer. Richards, a Democrat in a state long held by conservative Republicans, rose from an impoverished childhood in Lakeview, Texas, and moved through Dallas and eventually to Austin, where she realized her political aspirations. Her career was colored by her impeccable wit and hard hitting ... Read More
Some films are so deeply cool, you feel cool by association just basking in their flickering glow. Writer/director Jim Jarmusch’s latest art house happening, Only Lovers Left Alive, is definitely this rare sort of cinematic experience. A languorous, gorgeously detailed meditation on endless love, the film stars Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton as a vampire couple with impeccable taste. Hiddleston sets the tone in the film’s opening scenes as Adam, an ... Read More
Jonathan Glazer’s sci-fi thriller is based on Michael Faber’s 2000 novel, but the two have little in common besides the title and the most basic premise: an alien (Scarlett Johansson) disguises herself as a human and lures unsuspecting men into her trap. Glazer’s film never quite makes it clear why the aliens want the men, who are trapped in a strange, amniotic fluid-like substance until their bodies dissolve; in Faber’s novel, the reason ...

I never thought I would feel empathy for a blow-up sex doll, but I was mistaken. In a new short film directed and written by Olivia Saperstein, we follow the tragic story of a plastic lady —from her emerging from a mail order box to a guy's taking shots out of her dainty plastic vagina. The doll's perspective shows us all the gritty and slimy moments of an out of control party. You know, the parts of the party you hope you don’t remember in the ... Read More
When you first hear “Sofia Coppola” and “The Little Mermaid” in the same sentence, you don’t immediately think perfect match. So when it was announced earlier this month that the acclaimed director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) would be taking on the live action version of the Disney classic, the news was met with mixed feelings.  However, once you understand the true, dark, mystery of Hans Christian ...
