I am not a mother. I am not qualified to speak to the joys, trials, and triumphs of motherhood. But I have seen the movie Mother’s Day, so I know all about pain, desperation, despair, and the deep abiding shame that comes from watching silently as another human being is repeatedly humiliated for the prurient pleasures of others. Full Story

About halfway through the Nina Simone biopic, titled simply Nina, you start to feel really bad for everyone involved because there is a lot of earnestness on display. Zoe Saldana, heavily criticized for her involvement, is obviously trying very hard as Simone, and David Oyelowo Full Story

Does it feel to you like Kate Hudson has been on a non-stop promotional tour the entire year? She’s never not everywhere. And yesterday she was at Kimmel. When I saw these pictures of her my first thought was… What now? The book was out a month ago. Full Story

It’s such a cheesy f-cking expression, “Suit up”. And I LOVE IT SO MUCH. But that’s probably because I love the Avengers. If skeevy Superman Henry Cavill were saying it to skeevy Batman Ben Affleck, I’d probably feel differently. Captain America: (the Avengers) Civil War opens next week in North America. Full Story

I cannot tell you how much this casting delights me. I never think of Emily Blunt as being super-British, which is ridiculous because of course she’s British and also how do you gauge the Brit-ness of someone?

The final trailer for X-Men: Apocalypse is here, and I ask this sincerely as someone who has mostly enjoyed the X-Men movies: Is ANYONE pumped for this movie? I keep forgetting it’s even coming out, and when I do remember, it’s only in the context of, “They’re opening three weeks after Captain America: Civil War? Oh boy, have fun with that. Full Story

The Huntsman: Winter’s War opened over the weekend to a resounding, “No thanks,” from audiences with an estimated $20 million opening. For comparison, Snow White and the Huntsman opened in 2012 with $56 million. Given its reported budget of $115 million (haha, yeah RIGHT) and an aggressive ad campaign, Universal is looking at a loss on this one. Full Story
