That's not her hand right there, BTW
You guys. Yesterday I went to see Fifty Shades of Grey, and many of you did too, or had already seen it. I’m so grateful to all of you for joining in on the open discussion, and I am honestly still trying to process what I saw—and desperately trying to separate the good from the bad. I’m not gonna lie… I thoroughly enjoyed some scenes. Like. Thoroughly. And I can totally understand how Jessica Simpson was UM inspired to create this short, NSFW Instagram series with her husband, #FIFTYSHADESOFJOHNSON. Click inside for more!
Charlie <3's Britney
Our dear Britney Spears and her loverman Charlie Ebersol appear to have enjoyed themselves a pretty great Valentine’s Day together yesterday. Their festivities got started with a VDay surprise for Britney from Charlie in the form of a massive Valentine’s Day cake. Apparently, Britney and Charlie are embroiled in a pretty serious cake war where they keep trying to outdo one another by giving each other really elaborate cakes. It’s really cute and totally weird … but I can dig it. Then, the pair went on a movie date to see Fifty Shades of Grey because, apparently, it’s what pretty much everyone is doing this weekend.

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
It’s happening!!! I have purchased my ticket for an afternoon showing of Fifty Shades of Grey, and none of you can stop me! I’ve been avoiding spoilers and reviews… okay I’ve sneaked in a few paragraphs here and there, but I really want to decide for myself whether or not this movie is the worst thing ever (as some critics have claimed), or if it’s a fun, but disappointing experience because it’s only rated R (which is what I’m expecting). When I get back from the show, I want to hear all about what you guys thought, who you saw the movie with, and all that good stuff. And if you refused to lower yourself and go to this movie, I wanna hear about that too! Click inside for more!
The TV Guide
My friend Elena and I met up for a fun movie date at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA last night for a special screening of the 1995 Disney animated film Lady and the Tramp. As you may know, I am very fond of seeing movies at the El Cap because the Disney-owned theater is famous for screening both new and classic Disney films year-round. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the El Capitan is showing this classic Disney animated film for one week. As big Disney fans, Elena and I made plans to see Lady and the Tramp on opening night — which was last night — and we had the best time ever. More »

Nobody call me.
You know what I love? I love when you guys watch stuff with me! A few weeks back Amazon released the entire Transparent series online for an entire Saturday, and I got a slew of messages from some of you who decided to watch, after all of my praising and begging you to stream it. Nan one of you was disappointed, and I can promise you the same RE Beyond the Lights. I raved about it in my roundup of Best Movies of 2014, and I’m going to rave about it today. And by “rave” I mean write about it right now, then go watch it, and you better not bother me. Peep the video for more! (And, BTW, this trailer is fun, but it doesn’t begin to do the layers of this film justice). You can watch it with me HERE or HERE. And please report back and tell me how much you loved the Drunk In Love scene.
From Guillermo del Toro, also starring Jessica Chastain
I’ve said it before, and I stand by this statement: I do not do horror movies or TV. Alas, there’s an exception to every rule, and I’m pleased to announce that I’m finally about three episodes in to Hannibal, because it’s terrifying and also beautiful. I’d say the same about this new trailer for Guillermo del Toro‘s Crimson Peak. Starring Charlie Hunnam, Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain, and Mia Wasikowska, the movie brings us the story of a young Victorian-era writer who gets caught up in her new husband’s creepy life. Unfortunately, I have to see this. Not looking forward to being scared out of my mind, but definitely looking forward to watching this gothic romance unfold. Peep the video for more!
One writer has made a fascinating connection
Right now, people everywhere are watching the new Fifty Shades of Grey movie. As you all know, I have been oddly and unabashedly excited about this film since we first learned about it way back when. And I’ll be seeing it this Sunday, because that is what the Sabbath day is for. I plan to laugh, cringe, and totally enjoy myself. I’m not sure that I’ll be turned on at all, but I look forward to being pleasantly surprised. I’ve been browsing through reviews a bit, PITNBr fab4runner has already given her critique of the film on my Instagram account, so I’m psyched. And now Madonna herself has joined in on the Fifty Shades of conversation, which somehow became a conversation about Drake. Click inside for more!
The Film turns 30 this Sunday
The classic John Hughes film The Breakfast Club will celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release in theaters this Sunday and to celebrate, the movie is being re-released in movie theaters in March. The Breakfast Club was released on February 15, 1985 and to mark the occasion, Universal Pictures is bringing the movie back to theaters complete with an introductory featurette that will look back on the film’s legacy and continuing impact on pop culture. Additionally, a new musical theater production of For The Record: Dear John Hughes has opened here in LA and will open in Chicago that pays homage to the music of John Hughes‘s films — including The Breakfast Club. It’s insane to me to think that the movie is now 30 years old. Wow. More »
With the forthcoming Star Wars sequel The Force Awakens hitting movie theaters in December, we can look forward to the imminent release of Star Wars merchandise in the coming months … including TOYS.
