The Room is the most popular cult film of the last twenty years, frequently described as the “best worst movie ever made”, and subject of The Disaster Artist, a half-memoir, half-procedural about the making of the movie and the friendship at its center, both on and off screen, between Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. Full Story

On Day 1 of TIFF, Lainey mentioned that I would be writing about a couple of films that may not get widespread media attention. One of those films is Clement Virgo’s Rude. Full Story

I am and always have been a really bad sleeper. Turns out Drake may be too. And we may have more in common - we both loved The Florida Project, and were thinking about it at 2 a.m. This may be too inside baseball but here goes: Lainey and I covered the red carpet premiere of Darkest Hour for etalk on Monday night. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I wasn’t ready for the Game Of Thrones season 7 finale 3 weeks ago. I was definitely not ready for the Insecure season 2 finale this weekend. GoT S7 could have used another episode, if not two, because it felt like too much of a race.  Read Full Intro

I have a friend who dated three chefs in a row. I have another friend who dated 3 physiotherapists in a row. It was a thing. They were deliberately looking for chefs and physiotherapists. This is what I thought of Demi Lovato. That she was into MMA fighters like my friends were into chefs and physiotherapists. Full Story

If you ask me to describe Guillermo Del Toro’s The Shape of Water, the short answer is: Amelie f*cks a fish monster. The long answer, though, is that The Shape of Water is a beautiful, tender, sweet, sincere, sorta funny, definitely weird, deeply romantic film about love and communication and loneliness and loss and finding and being found. Full Story

I love how the Fast & Furious franchise is nothing but drama for The Rock. Earlier this week, he posted a story about signing a deal and if you follow The Rock, you know this is a pretty regular thing. His brand is heavily tied to his work ethic. But Tyrese saw the post and got all in his feelings about a possible Fast & Furious Hobbs spin-off. Full Story
