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. I,Tonya, the Tonya Harding figure skating biopic starring Margot Robbie, is the talk of the town! And in our latest episode, we dig...
  Honeypot, written and directed by Jill Greenberg, shows just how awful Harvey Weinstein truly is. Only 7 minutes long, the short film provides a reenactment of what it may have felt like to be a young woman auditioning for a Weinstein film. It stars only three characters, “Harvey,” his female assistant, and an unnamed, unknown actress auditioning for a role. Through the majority of the film, the audience watches in horror as a back and forth takes place between Harvey and the young actress, who pleads...
    Call Me By Your Name, director Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of the novel by André Aciman, has drawn quite a bit of controversy: there’s the age difference between the two main characters (one 17, one 24); the fact that the two main actors are straight, yet telling a gay coming-of-age story (though the director is gay); and, of course, that peach fucking scene. These are all important conversations to have (well, minus the one about the peach scene), and I went into the film with a...
  The Golden Globes released their nominations this morning, and surprise surprise, not a single woman director was nominated for the second year in a row (the last woman director to be nominated was Ava DuVernay for Selma in 2015). This is especially galling because several women-directed films are up for other awards — Lady Bird, directed by Greta Gerwig, got four nominations in other categories, and Mudbound, directed by Dee Rees, and Battle of the Sexes, directed by Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, got two nominations...
  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...
    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...
  The Shape of Water Co-written and directed by Guillermo del ToroOut December 8In The Shape of Water, Sally Hawkins gives a five-star performance as Elisa, a mute cleaning lady at an ominous government facility. Her only friends, whom she communicates with through sign language, are her co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) and her closeted neighbor Giles (Richard Jenkins), until she discovers a living specimen from a classified Cold War experiment. This half-fish-half-man (Doug Jones) is tortured by his captor (Michael Shannon) and pursued by Soviet spies....
  Over the past two months, we’ve witnessed a reckoning against harassers and abusers in the media, which has brought forth at best upsetting and at worst damning allegations against some of the most powerful and respected men in Hollywood, as well as larger society. That’s why it’s shocking that as we finally begin to hold men to higher standards, Mel Gibson is essentially able to take back the career he derailed nearly a decade ago after being exposed for the racist and misogynist he clearly was...
