If you’ve been reading this blog long enough, you know that I have a thing for Sam Rockwell. (And Sam Rockwell and Leslie Bibb.) You know how Brad Pitt almost always has an eating scene in his movies? Sam Rockwell is always dancing. And his dancing is the sex. Think back to Charlie’s Angels. Full Story

Hugh Jackman is currently promoting Chappie. He was in Paris today for the photo call. The other day, during our Oscar all-nighter, Duana told me about an article that was written about Birdman. The writer hated it. And the title of his piece was: Is Birdman the first Best Picture winner that clearly hates its own audience? If you have time, it’s worth a read. Full Story

Remember when Bridesmaids was a huge hit and we thought it would kick-start a trend of comedies made for grown-ups that happened to feature smart, funny women? Yeah, that…didn’t happen. Instead we got Melissa McCarthy Falls Down and Melissa McCarthy Falls Down 2: Mall Falls. Basically, instead of Bridesmaids being a trendsetter it ended up being an outlier. Full Story

Yessss. This is how you do a sequel. You push so hard into the deep sequeliness of it that you go Malkovich on your own movie. I read once that sequels are whore’s movies. That is, you make the first one for the love of the story. You make the second one because the first one, surprisingly, made money. Full Story

I thought by now that I would be tired of it. Tired of Sia’s substitutes. But it actually keeps getting better. And now I wonder how it could possibly be better than Kristen Wiig’s performance last night. It’s her best acting of all time, like, ever. She was magnetic. I could not take my eyes off of her. Full Story

It’s a good song…although I find it repetitive which is probably why it needed her. Because did she ever take the Church to another level, holy F-CK, Annie Lennox. Holy F-CK. Who could possibly follow that? Is that why I’m listening to No More I Love Yous on repeat this morning? And then there was Prince. Full Story

After all these years, do you feel differently now about what Kanye West did to Taylor Swift at the VMAs? “Imma let you finish”? It’s still a dick move, yes. But would you change Gossip History and remove it from the Gossip Books? I’m not even sure Taylor would want that expunged from the archives. Full Story

They released the poster yesterday. And, well, I mean it’s about as subtle as a dick nudging you in the face. Channing Tatum is going to come, OK? Goddamn. Me too. Like, I was never into Magic Mike the first time. But…it’s this song… In the teaser trailer that’s now blowing up on Twitter. Full Story

A couple of weeks ago, I credited Gwyneth Paltrow in this post for making Johnny Depp more tolerable than he’s been in a while. I’ll do it again here re: their appearance together on Ellen today. The I Have/I Have Never game is great. Full Story
