I Blew It With Scott Speedman

It was a dark and stormy summer night. I was supposed to start law school in a month, and I felt a sense of doom. (I would, in fact, drop out a couple months later.) Max, a man I’d been seeing, had just broken up with me because he had “nothing to give.” My friends were going to see a band in Tribeca, and I really didn’t want to go out, especially into Manhattan, but they convinced me. I pulled on some baggy ripped corduroys as a cry for help,Read More


Upcoming DC Comics Movies: List Of Titles And Release Dates

Marvel Studios has spent nearly a decade building up their cinematic universe with some of the most popular movies being produced in Hollywood, but in the next few years DC Comics and Warner Bros. plan to increase the competition. The release of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel in 2013 kicked things off, and 2016 will start the launch of a timeline that sees two new movies being released every year up to and including 2020. But what are the titles that make up this impressive slate? Who are the filmmakersRead More


The Best Things I Learned About Vinegar This Year

I got laid off unexpectedly this year, and while it’s been a stressful, ego-crumbling experience, it’s also allowed me ample time for soul-searching and psychological inquiry and watching back-to-back episodes of ‘Revenge’ on Netflix.” (Btw, doesn’t Madeleine Stowe look amazing?) While some of it has been terrible, there are upsides to having so much free time. Consuming every TV show known to man is one, and dressing like the lovechild of Steven Tyler and Mary Kate Olsen is another (my apartment is cold and I really like scarves, okay?). ButRead More


Lean Cuisine-A-Day Recap

Salisbury Steak, with Macaroni and Cheese: About as good as it looks. (Bad.) So I’ve eaten halfway through my stockpile of Lean Cuisines after stumbling upon a goldmine last week and, well, let’s just say I now know why they were on clearance! (Oh gross, buying food on clearance!?) But seriously folks, a lot of this stuff is really not OK as “food”. A greasy snack to tide you over? Sure. And there are a few gems, which I’ll get to, but first take a look at the following doozies IRead More


Watch The Force Awakens Cast Debate Who Shot First

If there’s one thing we geeks love to do, it’s debate the minutae of fictional universes. Arguably the most popular debate in all of pop culture is whether Han Solo or Greedo shot first in the Mos Eisely cantina during the original Star Wars. Seven movies later, the debate continues to rage. When faced with the question, the cast of The Force Awakens seems to generally share the same opinion: This question was posed by the folks over at Collider. As previously mentioned, the cast generally all feels the sameRead More


Calling Your Girlfriend

Your Girlfriend: Hello? You: Hello? YG: Hello? Y: Hey, can you hear me? YG: Hello? Is that you? I can barely hear you. Hold on one sec. Y: Hello? YG: Sorry, I’m on the freeway, reception keeps cutting in and out. What’s up? Y: Hey. Um, what’s going on? YG: Not much, I’m just driving home. Where are you? What’s that noise in the background? Y: What noise? YG: That kind of, like, thumping noise. It’s really loud. Are you in a club? Y: Yeah, hold on, let me justRead More


Bizarro In Batman V Superman? Get The Details

When the most recent trailer for Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice dropped, everyone pretty much lost their minds – in two distinct ways. While some people were thrilled to see more of a movie that will undoubtedly make history, others felt cheated because they assumed the trailer spoiled the movie. Batman and Superman meet, they fight, Lex Luthor unleashes Doomsday, the end. However, a new theory suggests the potential appearance of another major Superman foe: Bizarro.   This theory comes to us courtesy of the folks over at CB;Read More


Scandals of Classic Hollywood: Lana Turner, Sweater Girl Gone Bad

Lana Turner never looks the same. I’ve seen her in hundreds of pictures and dozens of films, and each time she looks like a slightly different person. Turner was a chameleon, a Hollywood-made confection, a liar, a victim, and a real-life femme fatale, party to one of the most infamous — and tragic — Hollywood scandals. Her image combined sex appeal and vulnerability, both imbued with a sense of danger. At the height of her career, Turner seemed a beautiful yet wounded animal, ready to lash out. Turner’s story wasRead More


Darth Vader In A Future Star Wars Movie? Get The Details

Some spoilers ahead for The Force Awakens. Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought the original, beloved characters of the Star Wars franchise to a brand new generation of young fans. While just about everyone showed up to varying degrees, one character never had the chance to pop up: Darth Vader. His influence is most certainly felt throughout the movie – particularly with regards to Kylo Ren’s mission – but the character himself never appears in any major way. According to a new book being published to accompany the film, thatRead More
