Oscar Isaac covers the new issue of Details, in advance of his new movie Ex Machina, and oh my god, LOOK AT HIS MAGNIFICENT HAIR. Why have I never noticed this before? Perhaps it’s the length, and/or the fact that it isn’t shellacked to his head. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Divergent Series: Insurgent opens this weekend. Shailene Woodley and Theo James have been on promotion for it for the last couple of weeks. As you know, if you’ve been reading this blog for a few years, I was big on the first book (review here  Read Full Intro

Well colour me happy… Pretty Woman is 25 years old! DUANAAAAAA!!! I didn’t even bother writing to her about this article because I knew we were going to fight over it, because we always fight over Julia Roberts, and I didn’t want her to have it. Look. It’s not a movie you’re supposed to approve of anymore; it’s just so wrong, the idea of it is just so wrong…OK, OK. Full Story

Pac-Man is here for revenge

On paper, I should be all over Pixels. It’s a space invasion movie but the aliens are video game characters, it stars Peter Dinklage with a rocking mullet, and that “Pac-Man is a bad guy?” joke is great. But the first trailer is here and I can’t get into it. Yes, Dinklage (and his mullet) is present, but so is Adam Sandler. Full Story

One of the most intriguing movies coming up is Ex Machina, the directorial debut of sci-fi writer Alex Garland, who has written some of the better sci-fi movies of the last fifteen years, including Sunshine and Never Let Me Go. He wrote the screenplay for Ex Machina as well, and it looks like his best film yet. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

“You know, you look a lot better without all that black sh-t under your eyes.” Did she? Then, maybe. But now? By today’s standards, at least to me, Ally Sheedy totally looked better in The Breakfast Club BEFORE Claire gave her the hairband makeover.  Read Full Intro

Jennifer Garner is currently promoting Danny Collins. It’s about Al Pacino. He’s a songwriter but he writes sh-t songs and then Christopher Plummer, his manager (?), shows him a letter that John Lennon intended for him and I guess he’s rethinking his entire career. Then he goes off to find his long lost son. Full Story

In the battle of the Rooney Sisters, where do we stand? For a while there, it seemed like Rooney Mara was ahead of elder sister Kate, and she did bag that Oscar nomination for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. But recently she said that the English-language remake of the sequel, The Girl Who Played with Fire, is dead in the water Full Story

Since I’ve been reviewing movies on LaineyGossip, I don’t think you guys have seen me enthusiastically like a movie, so for the first time, here is me enthusiastically liking a movie, no complaints. Cinderella is adorable, a genuinely enjoyable and entertaining family film. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that it isn’t as empowering as the Drew Barrymore classic, Ever After. Full Story
