Here’s something I did not expect to say: The Shallows is pretty good. I know, right? I was surprised I like it, too. But The Shallows, aka Blake Lively vs. A Shark, is a solid B-movie. It’s effectively scary and sort of stylish, and Blake Lively isn’t horrible. In a better movie season it probably wouldn’t draw much notice, but this summer has been particularly brutal, so The Shallows sticks out as a high note. Full Story

Leslie Jones is one of the four new Ghostbusters. The new Ghostbusters movie is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer. We’ve been talking about it for over a year. Ghostbusters is a major motion picture release. So…why can’t Leslie Jones find anything to wear to the premiere?

The (debatably unfair) perspective on Taylor Swift has always been that she’s the girl who falls in love in five minutes and the next thing you know she’s ordering her lover’s initials on her stationery and planning the wedding. Full Story
