How to Be Single is a romantic comedy so bad I’m shocked it doesn’t star Chris Evans. This movie’s idea of romance is only appealing to narcissists, and it’s sex-positive attitude is mere lipstick on a heteronormative ideal where every woman secretly wants babies and marriage no matter what she says and dum-dum ladies are incapable of knowing what they want and only form their identities around men and how they can attract them. Full Story

There’s something to be said for talk show chemistry. Katie Holmes believes Joshua Jackson was a better kisser than James Van Der Beek, but we wouldn’t know this if not for Ryan Reynolds. Katie and Ryan were both on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night, their second talk show appearance together in around 10 days Full Story

I was so happy to see Tessa Thompson at the Rodarte show yesterday sitting front row. You know Tessa now because you’ve seen Creed, right? TELL ME YOU’VE SEEN CREED. I will also accept the answer, “I’ve not seen Creed but I saw Dear White People”. Tessa at Rodarte, to me, initially, meant a higher profile. Full Story

The first time I saw Zoolander I didn’t like it, but it grew on me after multiple viewings, so after I saw Zoolander 2 and did not like it, I actually went back the next day and tried it again. Maybe it just needed to grow on me so I could properly appreciate its absurdity, but no. Zoolander 2 isn’t secretly brilliant like its predecessor, nor does it have the kind of absurd humor it takes time to unpack. Full Story

John Boyega won the BAFTA Rising Star Award last night. And he was dressed for it, looking sharp in a black velvet suit. I love his reaction when he got up to collect his trophy – a wide open-mouthed WHOA! as he was buttoning up his jacket. Understandable, non? He was in Star Wars. He was in the biggest movie of all time. Full Story

Deadpool had a crazy weekend at the box office, destroying every record for February no matter which way you slice it—opening day, single day, Thursday preview, R-rated debut, the four-day President’s Day weekend frame. For the three-day weekend it’s pulled an estimated $135 million, with $150-160 million for the four-day holiday—I think the actuals will be higher, based on a strong Sunday. Full Story

Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool

Sarah Posted by Sarah at February 15, 2016 14:40:52 February 15, 2016 14:40:52

The mistake in talking about Deadpool is to think that it is in any way subversive of the superhero genre—it isn’t. A long-gestating passion project for producer and star Ryan Reynolds, Deadpool is thoroughly a superhero movie, and a pretty conventional origin tale. Further, it overindulges in the snarky, glib-bordering-on-smug tone honed in the Marvel Studios-produced Avenger movies, so even though it is not part of that universe but is in fact part of Fox’s X-Men universe, Deadpool leans heavily on expectations created by the other Marvel superhero movies. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

HBO released a batch of new photos for the upcoming season of Game Of Thrones yesterday. I’ve attached a few below and to see more click here. Why does the Khaleesi look so hesitant and unsure of herself in all of these shots? This worries me.  Read Full Intro
